Hi, like everybody, I want to create a RPG, but my problem isn’t the story or programming, mi problem is whit the modeling, because I have to use UML, to elaborate the object and events in the game, and I not have any reference to do that :S If somebody knows where I can find I please to read or ask, I will be so glad.

I'm designing an RPG using UML. I'm pretty inexperienced in game design and I'm not sure what objects I'll need and how they should interact with each other.


Here's my advice, jkock. Use UML to write what you think you'll need and how your objects interact. Take out a chess or checker board and some game pieces, and play your game. Do the typical things you're going to do in your RPG.

First, move the "player" and then trace through how that'd work in your code with your finger. Then have a battle, talk to a villager, try to push against something that doesn't move, search the ground, pick up a chest,etc. When you've done pretty much everything there is to do in your game and your design covers them all, you've got a design.

As for objects, the main ones should be Input, Display, Gamestate, Scripting, and Sound. You'll probably need many more, although you can figure them out as you go along.
