Hello java-gaming community !
I am here to show you my progress in my MORPG, why a MORPG and not a M
MORPG ? Well, 'cause in "MMORPG" there is the word "massive" and I am pretty sure that I will never reach a massive amounts of players.
I won't write here a big scenario/story over my game, because I do not write one or really think about one, I just want to made an futuristic MORPG with a third person shooter aspect. In order to success where many others failed, I try to focus my self on the code, and I think I am on the good way. I have started it a week and 3 days ago exactly, so be friendly with me, it is the beginning. I will post screenshots at the end of the topic, but they are a bit ugly because I am noob in 2D art and in 3D modeling
so I couldn't do anything for it.
I am working with jMonkeyEngine3.Gameplay
I will try to explain a bit the gameplay here. In fact I wanted to make a MORPG more aggressive instead of a MMORPG (like WoW) where you just need to click on the target and then roll your face on they keyboard. So I added a third person shooter aspect, here is how it works: you need to aim the target and then you have to use the short keys to cast the spell
on the target. The spell can take a some time to cast so you have to keep your target aim in order to not miss him !Scenario/Story
TODO: write it
(it will be a surprise
). One clue: it will be in an apocalyptic future.Progress
Here is my progress (I start to dev' the 05/31):(Of course, all thee things are sync with network and I use prediction system to avoid laggs)
- You can attack a NPC
- The NPC has got a basic AI, so they attack you and fallow you
- NPC Respawn
- Spells are fully supported (with an effect manager, time to cast a spell, cooldown, max. distance, etc...)
- XP Earned (with LVL up, of course)
- Drop & Inventory support
- Animations are sync
- Merchant NPCs
- Equipement system
- Physic supported
- A basic world editor, I have to continue to work on it
Here is some ugly screenshots, all 2D art and 3D models are there only for the test:
Me casting a spell:
Trade with a merchant (yes I know I wrote "Merchent" instead of "Merchant" ^^')
(Price are the number in white over the image)
Have a nice day !
