Zone idea (for those interested in either hearing it or joining the development team)

You are a miner-mercenary, tasked with getting precious metals from other planets and sending them back to earth for the betterment of your home planet. To do this, you find minerals (powerballs) and take them to a refinery (goal). Upon succesfully delivering minerals, you get a cut of the profits to upgrade your ship.

At the same time you are a also a mercenary, tasked by your government with protecting your cargo, other miners, and the fields used to procure your precious metals. Other races (teams) are desperate to cut into your profits and this simply cannot be allowed.

Teams:
Two (maybe more as we grow) public teams will compete.

We will allow individual races (private teams) to attempt to get their cut of the profits. Some will do this by taking over mineral deposits, some will do this by killing miners as they approach the refinery and steal the cargo for their own gain. I believe this will encourage the growth of pirate squads who are devoted to the zone moreso than their pub freq counterparts.

Classes:
Miners -- the ones who cheifly do the heavy lifting. Their ships have more powerful engines able to carry the heavy loads, but are therefore quite a bit less agile when carrying minerals, and essentially defenseless.

Pirates -- Light, quick, and deadly. Unable to carry minerals due to the weight of the metals, they are the attackers and defenders of the team.

Mercenaries -- Can carry minerals, but speed and manueverability will be mildly diminished. They are the middle road between Pirates and Miners.

Engineers -- Every team needs at least one to rule the game. They can erect large powerful walls (at a price) that can seal in their mineral deposit from outside attack. They are also the only ones in posession of a powerful warp core that allows miners to attach to them back home after depositing minerals (or when under attack) thereby cutting mining time effectively in half.

Thats about it. If you are interested in helping design/build/code, AIM me @ Euphoricism.

Thanks!

That is very interesting idea! I loved it. I would truly hope to see this come true because it sounds very neat.

I will need help. I have the idea, and I know what I want the map to look like -- but I'm not a graphics guy -- can't design the ships, tilesets, etc.

I'll also need a temporary host as I'm behind a router that I don't have access to.

I like the idea of miners and stuff (you could add a great story line).

Surely then this would be RPG?

Yes, a type of RPG. I'm thinking of putting the game on say a 20-30 minute timer, so that every one starts with a blank slate at the lowest levels and has to work as a team to upgrade. The team that works best together will then get the best upgrades.

The zone is up under the name SST Conquest.

However, without a bot coder, I'm dead in the water.

Try using ASSS instead or learning yourself. Sometimes it's just better to do things yourself rather then trying to track down people to do it for you.

From what I'm told creating plugins for mervbot is quite easy.

Even script kiddies can write mervbot plugins if they use Underlord's tutorial as a reference

(I did back in the day when I only knew Java)

It's easy if you know C++, but you can work it out with underlord's if you don't.

I could be wrong, but I think he just volunteered to write you a bot.

What's stopping everyone being a pirate and reducing the zone to deathmatch which will then mean everyone leaves?
