Building an MMORPG!!!

Recommended Posts

First of all, I'm sorry for the misleading title, as you will see later, but I just couldn't resist to make such a funny misunderstanding like that. OK, this is an idea thas is never going to happend, for I'm not really coding anymore... but I'm going to post it, because I have nothing better to do... The idea is... you have a game simulator, and you have to create... a MMORPG. The thing is, you play as a developler team, trying to make it interesting an fun, and you have to solve problems like people camping, people complaining about PvP, bugs showing up and all these things. It's like a SimCity game where you build an MMORPG. All sorts of possibilities are open, like having to make your own developler team (like, having too much artists will make your game look good, but on the other hand the lack of coders will have you ending up with a game full of bugs, etc). Other stuff I tought was having to make the balance of it (In this case, we would need an AI that would automaticaly detect the most damaging aproach and stuff, and would milk it to the maximum... hard thing to make but not as hard as it looks like...). The key feature would be how the 'Sims' (these computer guys runing around 'playing' your game) react on the game. This would use a sistem similar to the Sims... you have a gamer with a frustration, stagnation, tireness and etc bars... and you have to fill them. If they start getting frustrated (being killed by others players constantly, not leveling up, etc), they will quit. Now, we get into the main problem: this has to be actualy implemented. I have no idea how to do that, and I think that would be a top-level tecnology (that is, not something 'I' could make). Other things like marketing, price, competition with other companies etc could have some kind of efect to, as well as some others features and things like that... I know this forum was suposed to be more pratical oriented, but... any coments over here?

Wow, really great idea. If it ever gets done, the link should be posted in the 'For Beginners' section as a type of warning to anyone who wants to make an MMORPG
