Machines Browsergame
« on: August 14, 2011, 06:24:47 pm »
Hey there.

You are currently developing a remake of machines called machines 2. Because, as you guys already know, I can't really help you now, i got an idea, maybe a stupid one. I thought we could have a little browsergame with the content of machines. So you could build stuff and upgrade weapons and search for BMI-Mines, build building, let transporters go from mine to pod, etc. What do you think of my idea. Does anyone want to help me realizing a (little) Browsergame? (First: planning. I won't probably begin coding until December/January of 2012)

The only thing I would need for that is a Webserver.

Edit: you will propably think of something like "Die Siedler Online", but I meant something way more simplistic. For example like this: http://ogame.de/ [German] go to "Media" and the watch the "Screenshots"

MfG Naums

One of our members wanted to do a browser base game but gave up. I wouldn't suggest making Machines into a browser based game too. Maybe just the demo skirmish into a browser based game.

That ain't exactly what I want. I don't wanna use flash or shit like that. Pure, simple PHP and HTML. Nothing with flash or whatever. (because I am not able to make flash-stuff with Linux ;)

this seems too difficult to do and would yield too little results.

I believe that one was me =P You want any background information/data, just ask me. Got more than enough things to help you out ;)
Also, technically, I haven't given up yet, I go look at my files every now and then and try another attempt at starting it (again).I just don't think my expertise is enough (yet) to take on something like that. Also, I'm involved with the Machines remake atm, although I wouldn't mind clearing some time to help you in this project.
Anyways, contact me if you'd like to get this thing started!

to difficult? if someone has a little time on their hands. (as i said: 2012). And maybe you can even get some money from that (advertisments and stuff). what are big results in you eyes?

Thandor is a great game, but I've read that a game company does that already. ;) I don't know which. And the don't have the name-rights for that one

uhm... so I will plan stuff and get things clear and ready with VOTS. If I need something/someone (especially Designers and Translators [cause I can't translate to... lets say Spanish]) I will call you guys here ;)

That was part of our discussion way back.
I was thinking about an option (like oGamr)that involved actually paying (beyond the normal resources), you know, resources that are 'special') or other options that could boost you (like 'Super'status)... things like that.

Thandor is a fun game, I don't know why it did so poorly. Which game company? Jowood owns it, right? How do I play multiplayer in it?

Good luck

VOTS, what are you quaking about with Superstatuses?

VOTS: I hate that idea. I just hate having to pay for a game, to win. That's ass. (please don't be censored) I can understand your thinking, but I hate that when playing free online games (like need for speed world, Die Siedler Online, Battlefield Play4Free,...)

Because springs games are free, we will do better than a pay-per-win (?) version.
