Programmers tend not to be the cheapest of workers though
I don't think anyone ever told EA that! Or any other big software developer, for that matter. Or any indie games developers. As far as I can tell, you only really make money off programming if you move on to supervise other programmers or if you get a residency as the only programmer in some non-software-related company.

Maybe the payout/hour is not very much, I do not know about that in big firms - but I _do_ know that custom-made programs are certainly not cheap. And a custom-made program is what we're asking for here.

My brother-in-law (studying ha.dat), has made a simple schedule-program for TeleDanmarkCommunications A/S and he got 30'000 kr. for that - or 6'237 US$. Then there is the renting of the software, 300 kr/month

A suggested this some time ago. Actually I suugested we pre-order the game.

The point is, as was patiently explained to me, that Alex has explicitly stated he doesn't want this.

However, I'm still up for my plan B, that we club together to buy him a big, custom made cake from his nearest cakery/bakers when Nova gets made. None of the pressure, lots of tasty incentive. "However much you dedicate yourself to something, its not going to be as much as you would if you were going to get a big cake out of it as well" (Mark 5.12)
