Next best addicting game to come around!

Posted 21 December 2006 - 09:19 PM

IN this game you will be able to create builds, vechials, weapons, tools, machines, citys, towns, armys, empires! Sadly I lack the knowledge of where to start for this... (frist game will be text based, after that goes big, we go 3D!!)

I have spent a year trying to develope this game but its getting no where, so I have come looking for help.

This needed for the game:

Abilty for a login user to post on a webpage such as global chat as well as private chat.
Turn based (4-6hour/1turn)

from there it will become easyer.

Anyone who gets in now WILL recieve a cut of the money once the game becomes big we will open ways to recieve money from people to help fun servers and pay those who helped in developement.

Mostlily we will go with SQL or PHP, I know a bit of SQL, but I am haveing a hard time getting this thing started, I cant seem to break the ice. If I could see a code use for a webpage where login user could post messages global and or private updated by a server (message posting updates only if people refresh the page)

So if you are interasted lets hear from ya, my e-mail is Erik@dpimage.org

I have everything worked out but the engine part and such. thanks!

You really haven't thought this through at all,

I think you need to do some heavy research in the areas required for implementation.

And what was the last TEXT based game, to go big?

Im not really trying to be a jerk

I've just seen many many posts exactly the same as this before.

You really need to see and understand the full scope of a large project before you start. Otherwise it will fall apart. I've worked on several large projects that didn't go so well because we didn't understand all of what was needed for it.

So what Im saying, is if you really want to do this, you I guess who is managing it, needs to do a butt ton of research on this, even if you aren't directly involved in implementation. Otherwise you're gonna end up with a project that falls apart.

Thanks for the heads up but no worries, I've been a small bsuiness manager for some time, so I understand that it takes time and research to make it work, if your frustrated with people requesting programmers then it mmight be a good idea to not look in this part of the forum much, I simply posted this here incase some programmer somewhere was interasted, I'm not dieing over it.

have you got your own web server for this text based? if yes, the main spec for your turns is cron jobs. i have small amounts of experience with php and sql and may be able to help. and posting messages for global and private viewing isn't too hard ethier. Reply soon if you are intrested :)
