Project Espionage/ How to create a project
« on: February 27, 2007, 03:43:06 pm »
Hey, i've come across this website and the people on it are creating(have created) a MMORPG. They created it with(I think) minimal crew and they all worked for free(it's a free game too) I'm not suggesting we should go there and hire them all(stupid idea) but I think we should check out their way of manegement

http://www.planeshift.it/team.html
http://www.planeshift.it/recruitment.html

anyway, maybe we should use the same method(or did we allready? uuhm...)

I don't knowq what the end-result is though, maybe it sucks, but I'll check it out in 5 min

Remember when being a Wrath Reaper was badass? Those were the days. . .

And come to think of it, we have someone here for (allmost) everything.

I won't have a leader that's too tired to do work.

Also, I'll take up the Web position.

Well that diagram doesn't show things that have to be done after other things, so we'd have to still organise stuff ourselves a bit more.

Well, director must have knowledge of all areas, maybe directors of certain areas, like team leaders, and then use a forum thread to consolidate it and the leaders from each section can decide whether it is coherent as a team instead of one person. Ahhh nvm he lists 'leader' there. :/

I can probably do something under the Settings area - background story, setting, bestiary, etc.

Also I think I'd like to look over other things such as the rules, artwork (seeing as someone making the background story should know what the things look like).

Once we assign people to their respective area then I think instead of a director we can jsut have the team leaders discuss things.

If I had to choose one area to be in I would say story. The problem is, will everyone let the team to their own devices? what is someone from web or gaphics doesn't like the ideas that the storyline people suggest, or the storyline people don't like the concept artwork?

@Sloik
Well since the Image didn't show "Web stuff" I thought you meant PR-Leader, it's kinda the same, you have to create the image which people will look at first.

You have allmost everything a PR-leader should have
IRC? We allready have that
Newsgroup? A mail every once in a while? (once a month/week) showing our progress? should be possible
ICQ? uhm...that's a chat prgram right? We just fill in Skype :P
Bulitins Board? Well the Homepage contains a Bullitin board, updating it once in a while could be good :D

and the other section, "Press"
News, well, if we get something rolling that won't be too hard to do I guess
Links on other sites, this maybe is a difficult point, but I'm sure we can do it
Machines 2 Material, I think that this is also a public problem :P
Sponsors, since you are the guy with the money I guess that this is pretty important for you :P
Presence to Events, which I don't think is a problem.

Anyway, think about it :D

(Hmm, now I see, under Graphics - Web, ah well, still think about it :))


btw, wouldn't it be a good idea not only to steal PlaneShifts Idea's but also their Webpage? And then add a Machines theme to it :P I'm sure it would look very professional

@Deliverance
Well I think that people shouldn't go outside their areas, or else we'll find the 3D-Moddelers in the PR section and the graphic people in the Sound section, that woulnd't make much sense ;) I think that there should be some hierach, Storyline is top, then Engine, Setting, Graphic, Sound, Rules, PR.

I'll explain: Storyline comes up with an idea: A game with Machines. The Engine people then have to find a engine that could support that(RTS) and then start making the neccesairy adjustments. Then the settings people come up, figuring out what should come where, then the Graphics people create the images(Which the engine+setting peope then place) and the Graphic people create the characters, then the Sound department comes, looks at the characters and gives them the correct voices. Then the Rules person comes in, giving each unit stats and limitations and such. And as Last(or just behind Storyline) comes the PR guy, he then creates a website all in the Machines style and goes to promote our wonderfull idea

so, do I make sense?

PS: I want that spelling checker back! :P
