I would be curious to do a poll at some point along the lines of:
Which do you think is harder:
-- filming a movie
-- coding a video game
I've been involved in both (programmer/actor though less acting than programming ) and that's a tough one lol.
Each of them are equally draining but in different ways, at least that is my opinion... kinda states the obvious haha
Me-thinks we're getting a bit side-tracked guys.
Hope this helps!
Ah yes, I apologize.
Ok so I'm pretty tired of dishing out the same old Your-Not-Going-To-Make-X. speech so lets try it a different way,
pick one of the languages below, try several before settling on one if you must.
In no particular order:
Then, in chosen language, try to implement what you think will be the single most easiest feature to program in your MMOx
If it were me I would probably start with menu system (no fancy GUI or anything, just the ability
to navigate a hierarchy of sub/menu's and have the perform different actions) simple enough.
Then move onto something a little harder, perhaps an inventory (depends on how you want your inventory system to work).
If you manage to achieve that, try to do something a little harder; a chat client! over the interwebs!
(atleast I think its harder, probably because I have never attempted it and have little idea as to what it involves).
Then keep going for as long as you can, the rest of us who were once in your exact position already know the ending to this
story, but at least this way you will gain a serious amount of valuable experience!
