Moving this to the Beginners forum.
If you are asking about art programs, Village Life has vector art, and the main free vector art program is Inkscape. If you don't like making vector art, raster art could be used instead - the main free raster art program is Gimp. If you aren't an artist, you would buy a package of art - either one someone has already made or one you hire an artist to custom make for you.
I want to help design a "sandpark" MMO. Optional interactive story with quests and deeply characterized NPCs, plus sandbox elements like player-craftable housing and lots of other crafting. If you are starting a design of this type, please PM me.
