I was recently reminded of Thrive’s existence while watching a youtube video ( I played it a couple years ago). I was pleasantly surprised to discover that it was still in development. I was further surprised to find out it was open source, since I didn’t know that before. I have been halfheartedly searching for a open source project to contribute to for learnings sake (hopefully one day I’ll get a job in programming. COVID lockdown kicks hard) and what better than a game simulating evolution. I love simulations of ecosystems and things that simulate natural phenomena, so I thought I would try to contribute in what humble way I can.
I suppose to start off I should knock off a few of the easy issues on github? Should I mention on Github that I’m working on them to prevent several people working on it?
