So... I have seen a few people trying to make an RPG, and that made me start to wonder, "Where is everything stored?"
So, like I just said, if I were to start on such a massive project, where would I even begin to store all those player vitals, stats, inventory, progress
What are fine as instance variables? global variables? What are better off in a text file, array, XML, hash table, instance, etc.?
This isn't exactly my focus at the moment as I am not working on an RPG, but I would like to hold the information in a back pocket of sorts.
Heck, even if I am not working on an RPG, some elements may be useful for my project.
I feel like I may be asking a very broad question, so for anyone that can take the time to answer, thank you in advance.
