Interesting Game Idea

Posted 16 March 2010 - 08:05 PM

Hey Guys! im new to the forum so i'd first like to start out with saying hi to everyone, pleasure to be here, hope i can be an influence in anyway possible. Positively that is. Now i have a few things that have been on my mind lately that'd i'd love to share with you all.
Firstly, friends and i have been playing you know, Common MMORPG's and to be honest, we're just not satisfied. The constant grind, the lack of change, its just all the same, and there's no differences that i really see when i pick a different one.
For starters, i have no coding knowledge whatsoever nor do i really know anyone capable of coding, yet i have an idea i've been toying with for an online game that i think would be extremely interesting. If you're all willing to hear me out, or able to help in some way then PM me saying you'd like to hear of my idea. i don't want to openly share it in this topic, because i've had cases previously of me sharing ideas and getting them taken by people more competent in coding and such than I.


If you have any further questions about me, or want to discuss something in here, just simply reply to this. I apologize if i posted in the wrong section, or have broken a rule, but i went through the forums and rules and hope i followed everything correctly. thank you for reading this, hope there's someone out there who's interested in my idea. this looked like the strongest code forum i could find, so i took my ideas here. hopefully you guys are as badass as you look :]
thanks again.
-Night!

Edit: just realizing that i cannot send PM's to people until after 10 posts, if you wish to know, simply PM me your email, and i will send you an email back and we'll have our conversation through emails. If you're uncomfortable with sharing your email, then say otherwise on here and ill think up an alternative. thanks.

You can get your post count up in the caffeine lounge like everyone else.

While I dont want to discourage you, I just want you to realize that common MMORPG's out these days, have thousands of man hours and teams that worked together for a long time in order to develop them. Also unless you plan on design the vast majority of the game, and I mean level design, character design, back stories, quests, etc... your lack of programming knowledge makes you seem kinda undesirable as a team member. I tell you this because we get a lot of "make a MMO like WoW but better kthnkxbye." I applaud you for the decency of using full sentences.

So two options you have, is look around for a small company that will take your idea and with a contract will protect your Intellectual Property (IP). Or you can just share your idea on the forums and have fun discussing it.

How do i go about the first option? and thanks :] i think.
haha. Sure i'll hit up the cafe to get my count up. i also would like to know, maybe which code would be best for the plan i have? because i don't just want to be the idea jockey, i think it'd be better if i could actually do some of the work instead of just thinking up the easy part.

I have a group you can join and you can share your ideas. We can run that project in parallel to Crimson Cadre, but it is for n00bs, so no one there really knows anything about MMOs. It's all about the learning experience and stuff. The site is pretty.... eh.... it needs work, I know, but if you join I'll let you see the hidden stuff.

And don't post your email and stuff on the forums because bots can get it and spam you guys.

Also, if you're sick of the level grinding crap like WoW, try DDO. Sure, it's Dungeons and Dragons, but it kicks ass and forces you to quest for xp and move forward. You can't just kill a bunch of monsters for xp because you don't really get xp from monsters, and usually you get a penalty for being too high a level in a certain quest anyways. And if you repeat the quest you get xp penalty until you get 0 xp for it. They sort of force you to move on.

So let me get this straight,
you guys are currently programming your own game right,
and then you'd help me afterwards? or you're just giving me feedback and such.
Just trying to establish whats going on :P
and what game are you guys making?
