Use group-separators in your numbers!!! Reply:4| View:480

        Why do you never use group-separators in the numbers in your games‽‽‽ Group-separators make large numbers like the ones in these games INFINITELY easier to read.

        Which of these is easier to understand?

           
  •                 1289658932164
           
  •                 1,289,658,932,164

        Obviously the one with group-separators is MUCH easier to understand, and especially to compare. The lack of separators is a big source of frustration for players. Countless people have on innumerable occasions been frustrated while trying to figure out exactly how big a number is and more so, while trying to determine how much it changed.

        This is really particularly frustrating in time-sensitive parts of the game where you don’t have time to sit and carefully count all of the digits (especially if the number is actively changing). Even when time isn’t an issue and the number isn’t changing, it is still often difficult to look at the tiny numbers on screen and try to measure out groups, especially if there are multiple copies of the same digit in a row: 1225654111266655000

        There is no reason to not use group-separators, they have negligible impact on performance (especially when compared to the huge performance hit that the massive amount of unnecessary animation all over the game creates) and they use up almost no extra space (only a few extra horizontal pixels per number).

        Please start using group-separators in all of your numbers higher than 999.

        Quick, tell me how much damage I did! No time to sit and count digits, figure out the damage quickly. (Imagine how much harder it would be with tiny numbers in the middle of a battle.)

I agree, separators make so much sense.
