Yes, I am super new to these forums and I wanted to ask if there is any programs for making 3d mmorpgs. Not super graphics, maybe like runescape kind of graphics. It would be cool if the program was friendly to beginners and not needing code and had AI and other things to make a good mmorpg. Thanks. (Sorry for my noobiness. And I know I seem lazy and I don't want to code, but i am just getting into this.)

creating an MMO without programming is not likely to happen. Runescape which you mention, was created by actually typing code.

You can make games, yes, without coding, but they will be cookie-cutter clones, because you will be limited to the built in library. There are free tools to make 2d games without coding. I'd reccomend www.gamemaker.nl Don't expect to create an MMO with it. The *are* tools that don't require code, but they don't come cheap, and without code you're probably not going to get much quality out of it.

A link for building MMOs:

I'd just like to let you know: don't expect to get something for nothing. You'll almost certainly need to learn to program and have years of experience before making an MMO.

I hope I don't come across as harsh, but your goals need to be realistic. They can be stepping stones to something huge, but they have to be realistic

EDIT:
google "kaneva" , seems to be sort of what you're looking for.

EDIT2:
after some more searching, I found a link on the gamedev multiplayer/networking forums. It has an analysis of how most MMO's have been built to date.

Oh, and Go Oilers!

I pardon you because you said yourself that you were a noob but your post was almost funny to read.

Everyone wants to do the next mmorpg. However, there are no easy to use softwares to do this because creating this kind of game takes years of programming. If creating the game takes so much time, would you imagine someone making an easy-to-use software that does all the job? It'd take centuries to develop! You are targeting a programatically advanced type of game, MMORPGs are the hardest. You need to develop, host and maintain a web server and create a game engine (with AI) what's more, the game you are linking to is 3D. Don't look too far : I don't think that any programming-less 3D game-making software exists. The simplest I can see is Jamagic and it still requires some kind of scripting.

However, these are things you can do :
- Teach yourself C++ or something, learn some graphics API (directx or openGL) and start making your game from scrap (be prepared to work for at least one year and NOT to work on an mmorpg)
- Learn The Games Factory, RPGMaker or something similar to create 2D games without any programming.

That's about it I guess. As for the runescape graphics that you qualified of "not super", I can garentee you that doing such graphics will take you much more time than you can guess (2+ years for you, 2+ months for a pro maybe).

Good luck!

MMO's are the most complicated and time consuming to create games out there, both programming and content-wise. Creating any sort of game is going to require coding, even if it's just scripting. Even a small mod to any game is going to require some coding. There are a bunch of open-source mmo engines out there, like NEL (http://www.nevrax.org/tikiwiki/tiki-index.php) which is used for Saga of Ryzom, or Genecys (http://www.genecys.org/) and Worldforge (http://www.worldforge.org/).

There's one other big engine I can't remember... There was a big to-do about it a few months ago because they just added combat to it... Anyone know which one I'm talking about?
