    After looking through plug-ins today I noticed that at least one Vbulletin user has taken it upon themselves to further develop Ogre Wars. One has done a great job on improving and expanding the plug-in:). Realm Conquest System - Page 38 - vBulletin.org Forum In fact, we might try to implement some of those changes. Can anybody with coding experience help with this?

    It's not the graphics I'm concerned about, the gameplay options do seem wise. A way to name your village allows more personalisation without complicating things at all.

    We should decide what options would be good to add though. Adding too many could just mean we end up with yet another Ogame/Travian/Tribal Wars clone, and we have the advantage of simplicity right now.
    Trading would be pretty much useless with the simplified version we have now, and only really works when you have multiple resources with different purposes.
    Taxes and population might be a good idea, and could offer an alternate way of earning money, one that doesn't rely on turns. The downside would of course be that you'd need to protect your population, and there would need to be ways to limit population growth, and/or for other players to lower your population.

    One idea I do have is that we should have easier, in-game options of coordinating collaborated attacks. There should either be ways of coordinating one-after-another attacks from multiple villages on an enemy village, and/or combining armies temporarily to attack another village. The problem I had when I played was the fact that large players were far too difficult to take down.

    There could be other in-game options of making the game easier on yourself, like in-game options of removing the 'recruit troops' button when the game calculates the next time you recruit would take you over a certain limit, that you set yourself, for example. Or, in-game options of 'recruiting 5 times in a row', to save you clicking the button 5 times. Convenience options that I think won't take away from gameplay too much.

    I'd actually like to have a crack at this, though I haven't got the faintest clue about PHP development. I've only developed in Python before, and with offline programs, so I won't really know anything about servers and the like.

    Well, we can try it:). Shugo knows about PHP and I would be able to host it with a domain.

    Well, you could make a poll for it. Personally, I think it has some good ideas, but it also just randomly adds loads of gameplay options that may or may not be necessary.

    OK, we can add a poll for it once we get all the options that could be added:).

    How about an option where a nation or a few villages can have a match where the winners win an item?

    I do hope the plugin is easier to understand in working with the database.

    That would be cool if it could be coded.

    Yes, that would be an option if we really start changing the game.

    With the right coder or developer, almost anything can be done:).
