READ THOUGHT TO THE END
i have seen way to many people plan to develop a game but dont know how to present or orgenise their information properly
this effects in many people giving up on their ideas or people attacking the poster with propositions and bad comments
well i am tired of seeing this and this is why i am posting this
Contains a technical document that professional companies use for their own game development. Hopefully some one will use this as it WILL help, and i hope i didn’t waste my time typing all this up

Your reply is like one of those chain letters with questions like,
- what is your favorite color?
- Do you think I’m your best friend?
- Do you love me?
Aardbei : Funny but I think unnecessary !
Vitaliy: Thank you for putting together and good production plan that we can refer people to. Well written and easy to understand.
Well, it wasn’t really meant to be funny. Some people at sites like gamedev.net would really do that.
(I’ve been there for years in the old days, but not with this username)
What I was trying to say is that some people will take the document and actually “reply” to it instead of using it as a guideline to write out their plans.
For those who are serious about developing a game, I do think it’s a very good document.
if you seriously look into the game dev contracts signed by large companies (all of them are top secret but some were miraculously released to the public)
all the answers to these questions are at least one who sentence, but most of them explain in detail of about a paragraph in length
if you cant take the time to fill out a simple production plan to get the attention of developers that might potentially want to join your project, then whats to say that you will even finish the project.
