Hi, I know that DU is not planned to be easy, and scripting will be irremovable part of game mechanic. It is something cool... but write hundreds lines of code can be bothersome task for non-programmer players; beside this, scripting is quite boring in form (you know - lines and lines of numbers and letters, nothing fancy). So. Maybe we can made scripting mini-game itself and give it some interesting graphical interface, easier to understand by "normals"? Of course "text hard mode" will be always available as second option and even "graphical programming" can have less options than text one, like "beginner" and "veteran" versions I not talk about simplification of programming language itself, but more about some kind of GUI/IDE for that - with auto-complete and - most important - easy graphical interface like "blocks" of code for building apps. I know at last two projects, which use this kind of editors ; LEGO Mindstorm and Scratch. Here are pictures of programs build in them: [sCRATCH] [LEGO] EDT: Here is wiki about this style of programming. And you can even use some like this for LUA, too! In my opinion it will decrease "starting cost" for lot of people, and it can be even inspiration for someone for start learn "true" programming Toughs?
