I've been reading the forums here for quite some time and decided to finally register and post some of my own ideas. For the past few months I've been hammering out RPG concepts and I came down to this being the general idea, just looking for alittle feedback to see if anyone would find a game like this interesting/fun to play. It is an MMO concept but, at the moment anyways, is purely just a concept and I plan on developing it quite a few years down the road. I'm fully aware at how impossible that is, etc. but I'd like to try anyways and have been looking into possibilities. Anyways, this is all just general info.. I have alot more written down but like I stated earlier, I just want some quick feedback before I start bouncing ideas off.
- Sci-fi setting
- 3 races; magic based, tech based, and lastly a kind of.. lycanthrope, mutant race.
- When you create a character, you will have a list of basic weapon types and armor styles to choose from that is based on race. ie: Longswords, Shortswords, Pole-arms.. etc.
Some weapon types will be shared among all races but the general look of each weapon will be based on the race.
- Now I don't know about alot of you but I'm fairly tired of playing games like WoW, where you're constantly buying new weapons and armor to augment your characters.. The idea I had is to have a system where instead of always getting new gear, you augment your current gear,. So instead of buying "Insertfantasynamehere's uber armor of pwnage" you will be gradually creating your own legendary armor. Inspired by DnD.
- I've found that alot of the grind in MMOs comes from the fact that the combat systems aren't very engaging for the most part. In my MMO, I plan on having a more FPS based combat system. I know that implementing an FPS combat system for an MMO would present alot of challenges but I'd like to get some feedback as to if it would be even feasible.
That isn't very good point form, since I kind of went into long paragraphs.. I always had that problem when writting notes back in highschool, but you get the general idea.
There's alot more to my concept but I'll just shoot that out there for now and see what everyone thinks since I went alittle overboard in explaining some of it. I did my best to make it clear that I'm fully aware that you boys don't really like hearing about MMOs simply do to how impossible they are to develop for the indie game maker but that this is also just conceptual at the moment. Questions, comments welcome. Thanks in advance!
