Hello me and my friend are up and coming Indie Game Devs! We need someone or a course of some kind to teach us to make an 3D MMORPG we have been planning. We need to be taught to use programs like unity and modeling programs like 3DS Max and to implement models into the game.. We also need to be taught to a programming language such as C# or C++. So all in all we need to be taught to make a 3D mmorpg. The reason I think just me and my friend can make (with possibly some others but is not likely) is because there will be no quests, dungeons, and but will have a complex leveling/combat system and a complex weapon making system. Also will have low-poly graphics. So that being said spare me the criticism saying that 2 people can't make a 3D mmorpg alone and just tell me a way to learn how to make an mmorpg (besides an online college), I would like it to be free or sort of cheap. Thanks.

IF YOU WERE CAPABLE OF MAKING AN MMORPG, YOU WOULD KNOW HOW TO DO IT. YOU ARE NOT READY. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS.

 

"I'm going to make drugs, so don't tell me how it could go all wrong and end up killing me. Just tell me how to make drugs"

You're going to either need to somehow gain 20 years of experience, or start gaining experience for the next 20 years. At that point, if you and your friend still want to do it, you'll have to spend perhaps 20-30 years making your game up to a stage where the outside world can play it. It won't be finished, but it'll be released. Oh, and did I mention you'll need millions upon millions if you're going to hire some other developers (Which will reduce the time)? Or you'll need several hundred thousand, perhaps a million or so, to pay for servers.

If you're going to make some excuse of how you are your friend are different, spare us it. We've seen cases like this MANY times.

As Lactose said, nobody is going to hold your hand through making an MMORPG. You'll have to struggle and do it on your own. The reason there are no tutorials for how to make MMORPGS is people capable of making them KNOW HOW.

And Unity might not be a good engine. You need to code your own, or find/purchase a license for an existing one (Several tens of thousands, perhaps hundreds of thousands.)

Ok well what about http://www.digitaltutors.com/? Their courses seem pretty legit and they teach modeling, unity, and how to use C# in unity. Even if they don't teach C# I can learn it on my own. Also the hardest part to learn is most likely the 3D implementation. Take a look at CubeWorld by Wollay (www.picroma.com). They created a game like that with only 2 people! My game won't even have quests or dungeons or anything like that. It will just have pvp and the most complex thing about it will be the leveling system.

I wasn't saying cubeworld was an mmo but I was just trying to say that 2 people made a 3D rpg that is fairly multiplayer. But I guess your right though an mmo isnt the way to start. I guess ill start making small games but this leads up to my first question. Where can I learn to make simple games and work my way up?
