Developing a simple RPG game with Unity 3D

Recommended Posts

Project Background

I am currently starting up a amateur/indie developing project to create a multiplayer rpg with the game developing software called Unity 3D.

I am totally new to Unity but I have a few years experience in Maya and 3D studio max from my school studies on IT.

Current Goals

To create a large world with different climates and environments.

To create different races / creatures that lives in these areas

A simple crafting / build structures system. Smith weapons and Armour, brew potions, build your home.

Quests and rewards

Deep role play back story about the world and previous or/and ongoing world conflicts

I want to try and go for less npc's and no leveling system.

I want the game to be focused on the players. I want to let them form the world, towns, clans etc.

Give other players quests or missions and reward them for their jobs.

Examples.

I want to build a house, but it would take me really long to gather all the supplies on my own.

Option 1: buy the supplies from another player

Option 2: Rob someone of their supplies

Option 3: Buy supplies from a Vendor in a town

Sure there are many more things that could be added to the list but it is better to start small and see where it leads us.

This is the kind of graphic and setting I want on the game

Achieved Goals

Team Recruitment

I was curious to know if there are someone out there who would be interested in joining up on the project and by the time learning some coding and 3D development. This is not any super serious project, more of a fun thing to do from time to time.

I want to work with people that have a passion for role playing games, a wild imagination and fantasy. It is a huge plus if you have experience of original DnD (Dungeons and Dragons) board / pc games.

I want people that are active and attends to planned meetings and perform their duties to fill the goal that has been set. As this is not a full time project, it means that the times we plan to work, really has to be work times.

We are currently looking for

3D & Concept artists - High demand

Lore & story developers - High demand

Story developer application

Alright, I want to give everyone that signed up for role play & world story development to do a few tests. If I like your ideas I will take you in on the project.

So many people have contacted me about filling that role, so I have to choose a few to keep the team at a limit.

1.

Come up with 6 fictional character/races that would live in this world, playable races. They all come from different types of environments. It can be anything from cat folks to dwarfs. It can be races taken from original fantasy fiction. Explain what they look like, post a picture or two.

2. What would you like the world conflict to be about? Do you have an awesome background story that you think would fit this land. (Try and keep is short and sweet)

3. Name three different types of environment that you would want to see in this game, Explain the layout and the specifics about the landscape. What does it look like? Does it have huge monuments of old kings or dark spires that leads up to a twisting dark nether in the sky. You choose.

Sounds interesting, I can help with some 3d if you need assistance. You can see my work here -> http://www.jmsaari.net

Mostly cars there but I can do all kind of hard surface models.

Unfortunately I don't know Unity but I do have good knowledge of 3dsmax.

I wouldn't really be useful at all since I don't have any experience really in most this stuff but I am highly interested in getting involved in this kind of work so I do have some experience for future jobs. (I want to get into the game industry hopefully just not sure what I want to do in it.) So any advice on how you guys started would be helpful. :D thanks.

Here is my work: 3D Work

You guys that replied for the 3d development, I guess you know how to work with joints/bones for 3d npc / player models?

I think most of the stuff we'll use at a start is going to be downloadable content that are open source/free to use for testing / developing purpose. At a later point, we can design our own creatures and whatever it might be :)

I can be a tester and a story developer ;)

Sounds great, send a pm to me please

List of people involved updated.

I'll organize a small meeting somewhere in the near future, I will keep you updated from this thread an private messages.

I was thinking about creating the world today, or at least a platform to work on. I have made a map design of the region, this is what it looks like.

Edit: ( Dark Green: Leaf forest, Dark/Purple: Corrupt land, Brown: Desert, Light Green: Jungle )

I hope that we can create several castles around the world and within the castle walls, you can choose a spot to build your house (One spot per person). Maybe even add a small garden to the house for growing crops.
