    Unfortunately, I'm going to be gone all this week too. I was planning on helping out at some point these next few days, but... :(

    We may need a plan of some kind with a schedule if this is ever going to get done:). I would love to see it finished and enjoyed by everybody here.

    Okay.

    I completely agree with ogre on the schedule. Is there a certain day that works best for everyone where we can all get on and work as a group on stuff? It'd be great to have mass planning/dev sessions.

    At the moment I have no idea what my schedule's going to be like for the next few months, but I'm hoping to get a better idea over the next couple of weeks. Anyone have any input so far?

    Well, we could use an Ogre Game Time for the MUD one week:).

    I have been working simply on the room descriptions at the moment on my own time, since those aren't too difficult and we already have a map planned out.

    Note to Noche: You currently can't edit the area directly..next time you see me let me know so I can see if I recall how to set up the permissions correctly.

    Don't forget that Mystery still wants to help. Would like to find a way where you could use this forum for ideas or small projects.

    Does not look like it, Webber. Would definitely like an update or something along those lines fairly soon:).

    Glad to see you're still interested, Mystery.

    I'm currently working on reformatting a tower to run the game off of, at least temporarily, but I'm running into some problems. I'm aiming to have it up and running by Monday so we can start tinkering.

    Before we actually jump in and build stuff, though, we'll need to sketch up some plans and area outlines so the game is somewhat cohesive. The basic layout of the main city was finished a while ago, but beyond that, it's pretty much a blank slate. And, after that, there's the issue of plot.

    The biggest problem we ran into in the past 2 (3?) iterations of the game was a lack of planning, so as long as we have a detailed foundation this time, we should be fine. CMUD has a lot of built-in templates, too, which will definitely cut down development time. Having to code NPCs from scratch was incredibly derpy and time-consuming. XD

    nope. I have yet to see any official sort of thing or place to help with or even brainstorm at with since these guys already seem to have some sort of idea..Feeling pretty out of the loop :drummer:

    (sorry if i am not making any sense, kinda sick at the moment)

    Hmmm, that is something we can do, Mystery:). Noche is also still connected to this project. Quinn, on the other hand, is a big question mark. Hopefully he will return, but we need to set something up where the entire project is not dependent on one person so much. It needs to be something that we can work on as a community as much as possible:).

    Going to add some threads for brainstorming etc in this forum tonight.
