SCMMORPG
« on: February 22, 2003, 06:21:46 am »
Think Earth and Beyond (which im obssesed with right now) but with an SC universe and not quite as advanced (obvisouly) and most likely 2d rather than 3d, anybody interested in such a thing?
would anybody be willing to host servers?

Considering that this idea was brought up by myself and others on the previous form, I'd give that a big 'Yes'.

Of course, I'm hesitant to draw parallels between SC and 'Earth & Beyond' as I've pretty well figured the two are very different beasts.

Speaking of which, this brings up implementation.  For the sake of conversation, how would we/one go about selecting a race?  Would a race even be selectable, or would we have a sided Universe?  (Think:  Alliance/Hierarchy, though the idea of more than 2 sides is appealing.)


There are many more ideas where this comes from, but let's elaborate off the given few first.  (Or not, it isn't MY board after all...)
... and then on the 9th day, there was Flubbo...

Lots of possiblities, best plan would be to allow a person to select any of the races and then allow them to choose sides, Alliance, Heirarchy or Neutral (or rebel, pirate etc...) But obvisouly certain races would let's say get bonuses for picking certain sides (ie if you were ur-quan you get a bonus for picking heirarchy)

Before I continue this to any great juncture, I want to be clear on something:

On the SCRPG boards, from whence I came, I'd take the initiative and elaborate on just how an SCMMORPG* might work.  Things just didn't seem to work that way on the old PNF boards.  I was wondering if I have the go ahead to continue?

*Crikey!  What a long abbreviation!
EDIT:  Spelling.

Even though I'm not a moderator, I have to say I think you should go right ahead. there isn't that much discussion on this board anyway (well, at least right now), so anything is welcome. And I'm sure were all civilized ppl here.

Umm... being the bigmouth that I am, I'd love to give my opinions on the subject. But the sad fact is, I have no idea what we are talking about (which is why I wanted this topic to continue, I figured I could learn by listening). Some sort of roleplaying game apparently, but thats all i know. But seing as I seem to be the only *other* or "regular" ppl around this forum, this seems to be an impossibility.

As you may read I opened a section on the XR forum specifically for the SCMMORPG

http://dynamic4.gamespy.com/~xr/ikonboard/ikonboard.cgi

That forum is hardly getting any use so feel free to fill it with any ideas or whatever for MMORPG.
