Thank you for the warm welcome.
About the use of Haskell, it will be for our (urban) rule-based
generation engines (there is a recursive stack of them).
Think about a declarative geographic compiler and you're on the right track.
This engines are not in Haskell right now but it *should* be because for
it we have reproduced many Haskell features (monads, lazy evaluation and
Greenspun's Tenth Rule (for Haskell) is really at work there.
The first task on the job will be to port one of the engine. But this is
only the tip of the iceberg...
The final goal is to generate in real time an infinite city with as much
detail as the current top games.
And, obviously, to able to create that in an afternoon :).
So you see, there is many interesting things to do.
