    I'm still trying to find a suitable video game project designed by and for the good people of /tg/.

    What kind of stuff would you appreciate ?

    I'd be tempted to say Server Crash, but really playing in any of the settings /tg/ came up with would be neat.

    Nah, I mean find. I'm skilled as a game designer and graphic designer. It's enough to start a project, although indeed, I'd need a couple programmers to get it through.

    How about you turn one of the quest threads into a game?

    Alternatively, I wouldn't mind a Dungeons The Dragoning video game.

    Translate Attack Vector Tactical into something like Megamek.

    Or perhaps work on a campaign system for Battletech/Megamek/Mekwars but more detailed and superior to the current mekwars stuff.

    Why dont we try at least once to get shit done? We failed in the /tg/silo thing(a logical fail), but we can try a fucking /tg/ videogame. As we do with quest, or we did with those settings we created(rush, or something like that), we could get some ppl creating the plot, and everyone who know how to do things to do the rest.

    First of all, what kind of game are we actually able to do?

    It would probably be easiest to reskin an existing game if we wanted to do a Civ style game.

    Honestly, a game where I can wield dorfs and sergals to kill the kenders and dragonborn would amuse me.

    actually, just make the kenders halflings.

    Well those are my favourite games genres honestly I doubt I could make one of those games.
    I have some programming skills but I am still mostly learning, most of the I programmed could be considered management programs, and the only games I programmed so far were scrabble and one basic dungeon crawler, also working on a bubblebreaker game atm.

    Oh I also programmed pong once but I honestly hated that since it was a really low level programming using windows 98 and manually configuring the PS/2 ports, I only managed to do it because I borrowed half of the code from a senior student(I am studying computer engineering)

    What kind of picture ?

    Anyway, let me think.

    Town, territories, units, researches. But also races, heroes.

    Should we re-wire a civ game for that or shoot for our own system ?

    hey OP! In my opinion there are basically two main ways you can go. The first one is porn related. There were a few tries to make a /tg/ related porn game and if you do it right with good pics I guarantee you that half of /tg/ will pray for you. You doesn't even need a good story.
    Well thats the easier and cheaper way...

    the other way is make something like dwarf fortress. No, no, no. I don't mean that another fantasy simulator game or such. I meant the way that dworf fortress was is made.
    First of all it's constantly upgraded. When there is always something new in the game in every few months then there will be a lot of permanent player. If the players can mod it easily than thats another score.
    And in dwarf fortress there are a lot of things that was programed into the game because of the players wanted those things, like new animals and such.
    So it's more like an approach.
    >> RandomProgrammingFa/tg/uy 05/18/11(Wed)20:17 No.14973293
    Well personally would prefer something not in real time. Maybe in a square/hexe grid map?

    now one thing hat you will need for a good /tg/ game is complexity. But that doesn't mean hard to use interface or dwarf fortress level mindfuck.
    What I mean by that you need something that can be played in a thousands of way .
    Also it doesn't have to be complex at first. It will be better to start in small with a basic thing. You make a game which is stable, running and fun to play. Then you later wait for the response, patch it up, repair some things. Then you upgrade it.

    now as for my specific suggestion.
    A zombie or game or some other kind post apocalyptic game.
    You have a village with a few survivor and you have to scavenge, scout, loot, preserve and make food, fight the zombies/mutants/whatever.
    heres some game in that genre:

    If you make something like those combined and you put a massive scavenge engine under this so you can make really make a fuckton of things and survive in very different ways then you will make an awesome game.
    >> B&Hammer40Kun !o/uaSYM4lU 05/18/11(Wed)20:34 No.14973420

    So, here we are : you are the ruler of a kingdom. I'm thinking that, instead of having multiple kind of troops, you could make their equipment vary.

    for instance :
    You could train conscripts, soldiers or elite soldiers (the first costing less but the last being stronger), and affect certain type of equipment upon creation that would change their attributes, equipment you could upgrade. These equipments would have a "craft" ring to them, meaning however ressources would be harvested à la Civ V, the equipment would work like in RPGs, only the would be applied to the whole platoons.

    I think is certainly possible, actually my two major problems I can think right is that I have no clue how to due an enemy "ai" and what kind of user interface would be used since I doubt anyone want to play the game in a console
    >> Anonymous 05/18/11(Wed)20:41 No.14973489

    also if you want to you can place this in a fantasy setting, after an ork invasion or something like that. The main element here is that you are massively outnumbered, at first you have to hide and you have maybe just a few men besides you or just a small village and then you slowly but steadily you have to grow. Depends on what setting you use for the game this could be even decades or hundred of years in game
    >> Anonymous 05/18/11(Wed)20:47 No.14973534

    If the village cannot recruit, but only turn villagers into conscripts, it introduces the need to rescue survivors. Towns occupied by undead troops will hold the possibility to find such survivors once liberated.

    Well even if this game doesn't go forward, this thread put me in the mood to make an Fire Emblem like game. I think I know pretty much how to do it, the only problem would be getting sprites for characters and terrain.

    Hmmm perhaps in a few weeks once I have more free timeI will consider this seriously
    >> Anonymous 05/18/11(Wed)21:55 No.14974274

    don't forget the births if it's a long term game. Also I wouldn't recommend that the player capture other towns at the start. If it's a city then the player should capture buildings, build barricades to connect the buildings and clear out his "fortress". And there should be other survivors in the buildings based on how safe is the building and how well equipped were the survivors before the big crisis.
    For example bank has a safe which is pretty much invincible, but there is not much food in a bank. So the player could found corpses in a banks safe, those who tried to hide in the safe but starved to death. Or if the player is fast enough and the bank is close to the starting location then he can find them alive.
    Things like this.
    Or you need to consider how much of the infrastructure will be destroyed or in working condition.
    Like, a nuclear powerplant is pretty much safe, those have even armed guards so there is a good chance if that the powerplant could produce power and it has the staff alive. If the power lines are intact.
