A finished game with a few bugs is better than an amazing demo with no gameplay.

Also keep in mind that you will not be able to produce both quality and quantity. Either go small and focus on making it good or go large and varied enough for it not to matter. Whichever one you pick, it will take a huge amount of effort. Doing both would be impossible.

This is just a project im doing in my free time, i don't really care if it will take weeks/ months or even years, im doing it because i want to eve if it might take a long time, but i strive to make it good quality and have good gameplay, BUT i'm in no rush, so whats the problem? :p

Thats obvious :p i'm not going to try and remake the wheel when doing this, but i'm not going to wright some sloppy code just to see if it works then optimize it when i could just produce a almost fully optimised version straight away

I think what the other posters are saying is that you are focusing too much on the "optimization", and less time actually creating a game that would be enjoyable to play. Sure, it's just a hobby and a little side project, that's fine. But you posted it here, and people are just chiming in with their opinions.

Like what Heroes said, I think you are focusing too much on the details and you will eventually burn yourself out. Flesh out your mechanics, write a lot of code and then go back and see what doesn't work/what needs to be optimized. You're prematurely optimizing, which is a great way to make yourself go crazy. Throw some features in, release a demo and see what people like. No one is going to notice the 5 FPS difference resulting from the week long optimization run you did, but they will notice that cool new mechanic, or that professional looking art.

I'm not trying to discourage you from programming your game the way you want, I'm just trying to offer you some advice and hopefully help!

Its not like im spending every waking hour optimising the game xD im adding several new features a day so its not slowing my down to much, the only reason i want it optimised asap is so i know its reliable code and i wont have to worry about it slowing down the game as i add new features in
