Start a new smaller, more stable, V3 world?
« on: October 30, 2017, 03:00:34 pm »
I am willing and able (time wise) to start a new smaller V3 world. Like 1000x1000 instead of 2000x2000.

Create Tasks:
  • 1000x1000 world
  • Main, start town in middle sector, entire sector is PLOT
  • Main town MUST have mule trader
  • Enable buying player traders
  • Wilderness spawns spiral outward
  • Add more worms cuz they are awesome
  • Maybe adjust jewelry, BS and mining skill needed to higher

Ugh, the whole jewelry needs a rework plus magic. Having a month off helped so maybe I can get back into V3. Need to think about it.
You may have conquered my worlds, but I destroyed them!

he released the server files, but I'll say again the same thing I said last time you came around asking for source:
@Pokemon Steve: if you're only here to get the source code so you can make your own game, please go away!
I mean honestly over half your post are asking for the source code for this game(you've made 8 this year 5 ask for source code or open sourcing)...if you spent half the time writing code that you do asking for it(and you're not a complete moron) you could probably write a half decent game engine!

I don't think I can try connecting to the V3 Upira server anymore. :/ Every time I try to log in, I get as far as the loading screen. Too bad, I wish I could play this game againnn!!! I miss it :/ Been playing it since 2001.

You could give this game a try if you really want to play something, I've been playing it a bit myself on the US East server: http://www.mysteralegacy.com

It's similar to rpgwo in a lot of ways although it's a bit hardcore since it's a full pvp game with house looting so some people may not be interested in that. It has some interesting features.

A V1 RPGWO server would be cool, if it it was well made.

I am playing myself RPGMO (http://rpg.mo.ee/), it's got a friendly community.

V1?  seriously? 

I've tried Mo, it does have a large friendly community, but you're also really limited in what you can do there.  I'm always a crafter, but there to be a crafter you have to be a better fighter since you can't get to resource gathering areas unless you can kill the monsters along the way.

Steeltide was V1? Wasn't it?

Throughout the years I came to realize the enjoyability of RPGWO was in  being a laid-back game with a friendly community, that's what people sought in it. Most players didn't play RPGWO for its graphics, for hardcore PVP nor for grinding levels endlessly.

RPGWO was just a cool place to chill and have a break.
Building your land, planting crops, making pots and runes, while chatting with people.

IMO some of the people who ran servers lost sight of that, and the game eventually died.

I think Mickey may have forgotten about us...

I haven't forgotten. Just busy with this and that and keeping eye on this thread.

Want to open something, like December 1st.

Here is my To Do List (a + next to it means it is done/ready):

Code: [Select]
- 1000 x 1000 world
 - map creation : just keep trying until a decent one shows up
 - increase depth

- center start town
 - mule trader
 - player trader
 - player trader area

- spiral out wilderness spawns, all underground levels too
 + scripts made

+ remove Evasion, bring melee def and missile def back
 + treasure, potions

- adjust starting skill points???

+ scale out mining to step 75

- scale out BS to 75 step instead of 50
 + tin
 + bronze
 + cobalt
 + iron
 + ebony
 + cinnabar
 + titanium
 - hessite
 - tungsten
 - mithril
 - damon ???


- weapon/armor arming skill requirements increase to step 75
 + UA
 + dagger
 + sword
 + axe
 + mace
 + spear
 + staff
 + flail
 + scythe
 - sheild
 + bow
 + crossbow
 + throwing
 + wands

- rebalance weapon ratings, spread out, make same speed/burden ??? Can do after open

+ mining - add more metal ores, can add BS for them later "Future Ore I"

- jewelry rework
 - add the V6 gems
 - scale out skill to step 75

- magic changes
 - blank runes made by BS
 - rune drawing done by magic user, but can only copy what they have
 - rune wear out less or not at all
 - crafting uses highest magic skill
 - runes dropped by monsters and treasure
 - runes can be researched costing mana, 1000?
 - spell runes auto mixed on creation, in magic.ini use rune meaning (fire, ice, self, other, level 2, etc) and let server assign a rune to that meaning

- alchemy - scale out potions 75 step

+ remove floating map making

- better metal tools reduce stamina use, not boost skill, Can do after open

- reduce tame reproducing going wild, maybe require feeding? maybe add mutant born un-tames that kill kill kill

- maze quest type ???

- room/halls quest type ???

- scramble runes

- increase number of allowed players per client???  (For me, I like to play all kinds of player types, so more is better)
You may have conquered my worlds, but I destroyed them!

consider opening on a friday afternoon or something so maximum number of people can play together, causing more activity.

map creation: how viable is building on water / having a house totally on water? actually curious. would like to live in the ocean and grow seaweed


i'm not on drugs

if we can only make runes we have, and researching takes more mana than I think anyone has ever had, what is the point?  researching should be 50 at most(and high chance to fail).  another method might use 2 runes a player already has(destroying both) to possibly get a third, but both of these methods would take a lot of weird coding

last time I was working on server files(I gave up) I turned farm animals into items instead of monsters.  different usages on different animals to get them fed/fat/ready to reproduce...seemed like a fun idea if you want to try it.

there is no point in a person trying to play as a crafter if every fighter has a second or fifth character to make equipment.  please limit to 1, and not allow multiple accounts like you did on Upira.

if you seriously name it that, I will find you in game and pk you! :P

@Raikaria: water is usually flat land, so it easy to build anything...you can also plow and plant there but plants die once fully grown if not harvested quickly(planting underground gets around that).  the only issue I've ever had with building on water was stealthed water monsters.
