I am currently part of a team that has started learning about how to create a MMORPG, and what I''m researching at the moment is the best method for storing/retrieving world information in a database. Do you guys think that SQL Server 2000 has enough performance for something like this? Or should I be creating my own custom flatfile format? What other opinions do you have in this area? Please no flames regarding me being a newbie or suggestions that I should do something "easier" first...

I would suggest something like MySQL for a few reasons. First, it's free which is always good . Second, it is cross platform so if you want your sever to run under linux then that's ok. Third, there are many tools such as gui's for database management.

DAoC uses MySQL and according to them "so far has worked admirably."

awesome, I don''t know why I didn''t think of MySQL. It is also very reassuring to know that a successful game like DAoC is using it. Thanks for the suggestion
