Kevin, a gaming whiz, has been working on a situation simulation to teach people how to use OpenRelief tools quickly.
He has just broken cover with the first variant. As he wrote:
>> "I've attaced an outline of how I see a Stratagy Game for Disaster Simulation would run. Without a fact sheet on the devices you are making and thinking of making I can't do much detail, but I'm currently researching on the Effects of disasters to provide a guidebook to give ditails that would make the game accurate, however you should be able to use what I've given you so far to play test the concept with just pen and paper, so long as the Enviroment Player has a fair Idea of what would happen, and understands that this is not a competitive game but a simulation so their role is more of an Arbitrator than a player."
What I understand is that:
- We need to cover the entire disaster to give context for deploying OpenRelief
- There will be an additional guidebook to provide more detailed information about a disaster and its impact
- Once we profile the OpenRelief tools for Kevin, he can make a tactics guide that specifically explains their utility in deployment for the simulation
The attached PDF includes a couple of notes from me so the formatting is not really suitable for pretty-printing, but I thought you might like the update.
