Yesterday’s blog post got a pretty interesting comment that I just had to reply:
It’s forbidden in universities to use flowcharts for software documentation.
I don’t care what they say at the university. If my gameplay can be described using (1) bunch of notes and (2) a flow chart so that I benefit from it, then I use my flowchart. I’m familiar with it and it solves the problem.
Not saying that NSD couldn’t be used in this, but to me it just looks bit different syntax in more compact view. Might be wrong, but since basic flow charts work for me, I use them. I don’t use them to document stuff. I use them to help me for example coding stuff.
