    Concept Fantabulous! Online

  2. Tutorial for system: Not posted or worked on my game in a while due to starting my new job, but now I'm settled in I have jumped back on development. Today I have been messing around with a few new concepts which I have got working such as "Hunger / Thirst System" and a "Lift System" for my game, which I will disclose more late on, for now I just want to show off my "Lift System" I made: https://ascensiongamedev.com/resources/filehost/a58c6c76386b9421958fa3337aba5509.mp4 If people are interested in how I done this I can make a video / tutorial Let me know what you guys think. Ignore the mapping, just placeholders for now until I add more detail...
  3. Hello, I've been working on my project World of Adea for quite a while. While i originally only intended to only do mapping for fun whenever i felt like it, it ended up as something i wanted to finish/be playable, while there's quite a bit of content playable for Adea i felt there was something missing. Since i originally used it just for mapping since that's what i enjoy the most, i had zero plan or thought behind what i was creating. Intersect has also come a long way since i started doing anything with it, with those things combined, i felt Adea was rather lacking in player progression, balancing, zones, etc, just over all simply put. So a while back i started ripping some tiles from games that (there are rips by game rippers, but they're just raw sheets) and editing them myself to make them fit to a 32x32 grid. It has taken many many hours.. Not just to make them fit, but to edit pixels since they're not intended for a 32x32 system. From what i can tell, tidbits of graphics from these games have been used over the years, but not the parts i've customized myself. A part from this, i also dabble in pixel art, i've made a few of my own item paperdolls, and monster sprites. They can be found in my Adea thread. An important aspect that i will completely ignore for now, and possibly change in the future, is how i do paperdolls. I made them overly complicated, adding 'attack' animations with the movement frames. I will not do this now, and instead just use the movement frames for attacking. This will also allow me to use more sprites, change them easier (since i used a modified sprite as my base sprite), and also use bows/ranged attack weapons. With that said, I've decided to put Adea on the shelf and move on to a new and more well planned project. So before i delve into my plans for a game that i will spend most of my game creating time on, here are a few sample screenshots of the graphics mentioned above: https://imgur.com/a/fjQjy0q To start with, any projects i've made over all my years of game developing has just been raw mapping and some combat, never created a thought out story line. I intend to change this, by combining a base story, and then individual stories depending on the class you pick. Now, to be clear, there is a base story that everyone starts out with, but that quickly branches for each player. I've never been a fan of the 'great story line' where your path is laid out in front of you, with few deviations. What i've been thinking goes a long the lines of this: After character creation you discover you are part of your countries army, which is in the process of beginning an invasion of a neighboring continent. After you set sail, and i was thinking some type of short event movement controlled intro here, you land at an island a ways out in the ocean outside your target destination. This zone acts as the tutorial zone. You gain a few levels, during those levels you get to do a few simple tasks gathering provisions for the rest of the journey, to have the player acquaint themselves with the various schools of attack(melee, ranged, caster), and then set sail again for the mainland, however during the last stretch of ocean there's a massive storm, which sinks the entire fleet. You then wash ashore and start working your way inland, discovering a village (which is just outside Nusst, the capital of the continent). Nusst controls the entire region and most of the continent. There are outposts in every village/town to enforce rule, protect the citizens and collect taxes, etc. They also serve as quest hubs. Once there, the player decides it would be best to try to blend in, claim you are from a distant village looking for work, and thus you start your journey. Here is where it starts to branch off. I will include some elements from Adea, such as the class advancement system etc. Same with how i intended to create story lines. Each class will be given a quest chain that 'never ends'. It's purpose is to be able to further your class and have a type of goal, this quest chain is partially gated by content level, with dungeons and such being included in the quest objectives. This part includes whether you wish to work your way up the military ranks of the ruling nation or not, meaning you can freelance if you so desire. One of the things that will further your choices even more, and this part is not fully fleshed out (see below about organizations) is factions/reputation. Apart from your class quest chains i've put together a neat little idea, and that is organizations and factions. One thing i find is lacking in a lot of games is the villain groups. WoW does this excellently (or did, i haven't played the later expansions). So i've decided to take a page out of their book and implement that into my game. You can expect to have frequent encounters with: The Jade Alliance - These guys are a bit of a mix between all type of characters, bandits, outlaw mages, sellswords, and the likes, that banded together under one banner. They often raid supply houses and supply convoys. Western Trading Union - A group of excellent smugglers, thieves, and mercenaries united together to safely steal, ship, and sell various materials and resources. Excavators Company - The excavators company is a shady group of wealthy people who hire workers to excavate and plunder the land for resources. This group often works together with the Western Trading Union. The Southsea Raiders - A fearsome fleet of pirates who regularly attack and capture unprotected vessels out on the open sea. They also have a strong presence along coastlines and many harbors. Apart from the villainous type of groups, i've got plenty of good groups and organizations planned. While the groups mentioned above are mostly for player progression combat and quests, the good groups will serve as quest hubs etc. Features/ideas I intend to implement line by line: Fully open world Bounty System Encouraged World PvP Different Zone types with individual rules And all the usual jizzyjazz games nowadays has As you might be able to tell, i'm not much of a storyteller. Just not my strong suite, i'm rather unsure about the direction i'm headed with the game in general, but over all i'm quite satisfied and think it will be a lot of fun if executed properly. That is why i made this thread, since I work alone it is difficult to see if an idea is decent or not. So, based on the short idea and ideas i've posted, any thoughts? I'd love some feedback Worth noting, since i have a general outline of what i want to do, i've been developing and mapping for quite some time now, but i've halted enough so that i can still implement changes to the ideas above.

    Concept Legacy of the Dragons

    The magic once flourished in the lands of Valline, common to the creatures that embraced her. But power, always has a cost, like those with magic hunger, crazed and tried to seize everything by themselves. This conflict became known as the first major war, which resulted in the disappearance of magical energies and all drones. She is gone, lost from the hands of the people and forever asleep. There existed two factions in the first great war to the right, the Stigma, composed of Humans, the Knights of the Bultharos Dragon and great magicians of light. From the left, the Warborn wielded themselves as weapons against their will driven by the desire for power. Centuries have passed since and suddenly these innate energies have awakened from their long rest. However, not all were blessed with the gifts of his return and those who can not handle it, quickly began to fear it. Valine is once again threatened by the flames of war, the rumors that dragons' eggs had been found would be the fuse of a new era of chaos to come. Self-attack and using skills Auto-attack Click on a monster once to direct it. Click again to attack! If you do not have a target selected and use some of your combat skills (located on the battle bar at the bottom of the screen), you will automatically select a target and an attack. Very handy in crowded rooms of Player vs Player! Area of Effect Spells (AoE) AoE attack spells damage all monsters on the screen. Some AoE attacks have a limited range or a limited number of targets that will affect them. They use bows their specialties are agile and long range attacks. They are disciples and masters of the swords, besides being very resistant. They are those who dedicate their lives to the study and practice of the arcane arts SCREENS Final considerations This is a Brazilian project and we have plans to bring it to the english community. The game is in development and we still have a long way to go before its release, the game is designed to be a 2D RPG. Our team at the moment is small only I Mika) and Kenshiro at the moment, we count on your support, suggestions and criticisms that we will help to improve more and more.

    Concept Steal Randomiser Spell

    CONCEPT You can use this spell on your opponents and then you both a random deck of items OR you place both your and your opponent's items into a pile and you basically shuffle it and get half of them each You have to credit me for using this lol
  8. So basically the higher level you get, the more guilt you collect from killing enemies and you get much weaker. This also applies to enemies if they kill a player!!! This means that pros and noobs can actually fight because pros have the skill and noobs have the advantage You have to credit me for using this lol

    Concept Chronicles of cyberpunk: Awakening

    Hi! In my previous post I told about my game Chronicles of cyberpunk and here I will post updates about the second part of this game Chronicles of cyberpunk: Awakening. This is an independent game, you don't need to play the first part to understand what is happening, since there will be a brief retelling of the events of the first part in the beginning Unreal Engine Working on it sincye January 8, 2017 (and the first part was released on January 7) twitter instagram
  10. Hi guys, and thanks in advance for taking the time to read this and eventually helping me with it First of all, i never introduced myself to this little and joyfull community - and i don't plan to do so right now, i'll probably make a topic later, so let's set this matter aside and get into the main topic of concern : as you might have guessed, i'm here because i stumbled upon the Intersect engine while daydreaming about making (at least) my own oRPG, one that would - of course - revolutionnize the way you play (MM)ORPG. So here i am. Well, i'm probably not good enough to make the next WoW-like hit right off the bat but i like to (modestly) think that i might have some original (if not good) design ideas. Either way, i'm currently playing a bit with the engine, and despite having done a fair share of research on the net, i'm having quite a dilemma about one of my main features. In my game, i'd like to give the player a big (big ! about 90% of the game content) area (a forest, actually) to explore, with many many many secrets (zones, npc, events ...) to discover : yep, exploration would be the main focus of the game. I know it would lead to problems later on, like players finishing the proposed content too fast or such, but that's not the point. I'm facing something more like a level design problem, and without further ado here is it : should i map the forest like a ""real forest"" - that is, with space between the trees, possibility to go everywhere, no real obstacle but bush/thorns or the occasionaly gully or river ... you got my point. The downside is that the visibility will clearly be really low, but i'd like the player to get that "omg i'm lost in this big ass forest" feeling. On the other hand, should i map with a more ""classic"" feel in mind : "wall" of trees, dirt paths (or not, but the way is somewhat indicated), kind of "rooms" of forest ? The player is more used to this kind of environment, the mapping will be easier, i could lead the player where i want to with correct level design & the visibility will be obviously better but that's not what i want to achieve (because players will memorize the way/each rooms) and i think it would fit less in the eerie atmosphere i'll be trying to set. I'll be glad to hear what you think about this. If you have question, feel free to ask Thanks a lot, guys, really, this community seems amazing ! And the engine is way too great for me to describe
  11. So I was using my old laptop today in the Uni lecture hall and I dug up some old battle systems I made when I was about 14-15. Judging by the fact I'm 20 soon, nostalgia is everywhere here. Here is a list of the battle systems in the video: Pokemon wild battle system with working animations and all moves involving damage and status effects coded! (I think I had catching and switching working too lol) Final Fantasy Tactics style battle system Old classic RPG battle system I thought I'd share what they were like with you guys, here's the video:

    Concept Character Concept

    Hey guys, I use to go on freemmorpgmaker.com about 5 or so years ago. I love what you've done with the site and the engine. Good to see some people still around from the old site. I'm planning another game now that I'm older and have a better (not perfect) understanding of coding. Ironically I've been looking at C# and C++. I've been working on this concept. I Photoshop for a hobby still so it's not perfect lol. I've attached my original images I used. The character is a Cyborg. I'm planning on incorporating it into my game once I announce it.
  13. I was wondering what you guys (and more generaly what nowaday ORPG's players) are fans of. I think that it could be a good topic to give ideas of what the AGD community are more likely to enjoy, and might give inspiration for anyone passing by. So instead of asking it here and there, I decided to create this topic with a small multiple answers poll : What kind of style and genre do you like the most / would you like to see more in ORPG games ? There will be a couple of pre-generated answer in the poll, but I encourage you to add anything that might miss in the comments down below. If you could also explain your choice(s), that would be even better ! I personally love Medieval / Steampunk genre. Having some anachronism laying around, with technologies that are yet to explain but available through use of artifacts and good old engineering powerd by coal, steam and lava. I'm not a huge fan of magic in the other hand, but it can go well with my previous choices. I do understand people have a thing for Dragons and other similar creatures, although I find it cliché and stereotipycal to use in such games. I tend to avoid them as much as I can. And you, what is your opinion ?
  14. My content has been deemed too negative for this venue, so I shall be removing it. Bye...
  15. So I have been messing around with the idea of making a side scroller with Intersect. There are a few issues that I would have to find a work around for. One issue is jumping which I could just leave out and instead just have climbing as well as using the grapple stone feature. So far it seems the more I think about this idea the more I feel it might be possible. Any ideas and suggestions would be much appreciated so throw them at me if you have any. Here is a screen shot and a short screen recording showing climbing in action. The video is pretty choppy so keep that in mind. Video: http://recordit.co/l8vWWx4WwP
  16. Firstly, i'd like to say that this is my first time making a post like this, so excuse me if i make grammatical errors and what not. What's the game about? RHG is a tournament style animation battle between 2 animators and their unique stick figures, basically whoever's animation was better would win and some would even make their battles canon to their character(etc one of them called FLFFL{ALFA}lost his arm in one of his battle and since then he's been only using one arm). This game is similar but you don't need to animate anything and theres alot more than just battling for glory. The players(stick figures) have some freedom to explore and travel around to become stronger however they choose to become so, whether by doing quests, hunting other players, NPCs and other things. The game would be designed to make you choose what you want to do instead of holding your hand for 90% of the time. Story? You're at the age in the stick figure community where you'll be able to become a gladiator, a gladiator is assigned tasks, missions and also participate in tournament battles against NPCs and other players. You can choose a general stat path where you want your character to be in (whether it is fighter,mage or tank and so on) then you'll be able to assign your own stats freely each level. There would also be alot of customization elements that would make your character unique like different skill setups, clothing and weapons. Thats pretty much all i have at this point. For staff, it's just me alone which you would realize after seeing the only few screenshots i have at the moment What has been done so far is basically just placeholder stuff to make it a viable concept(If that makes any sense), i have a stick figure character sprite that could be alot better but since there aren't much stuff from rpg maker regarding stick figures i had to improvise and modify one of the existing rpg maker ones and just made it plain black. The style of the map i was going for was like a moba styled one, where you have a base and then you go out into the wilderness,jungle and rivers until you find the next landmark and what not. The only weapon i fully made was just a sword to test the paperdoll and damage. There still needs to be a female sprite so i'm working on that. Classes are basically done but i think they may need better balancing as things go more foward. My plan right now is to actually get serious about this and make it into an actual thing, i didn't really have the motivation until realizing there aren't alot or any prominent mmo stick figure rpgs of this sort. I did have a playable version running and was using a custom character stat system but i didn't get enough forms turned it to actually make use of it so i just left it there. So in the next 6-7 days i'd make some changes to the user interface and actually try to make a presentable map and maybe a trailer of some sort? i dunno. I have alot of items and skills to make so i've been preparing myself and collecting alot of different ideas for skills that players would be able to use If you want to point out somethings to me and give me feedback and criticism i'll gladly accept it.
  17. Hi. For those of you don't know, I'm working on a game called Aegis with @Ghostly and @BiGG. We don't have a thread yet because we're working on preliminary things while waiting for Intersect's source to come out. Nonetheless, earlier today I was working on some lore/backstory for the game, and I made a zone overview for the game world. It's a pretty big image, so be sure to zoom in and scroll around to get a better look at the text. If you have any questions/comments/concerns/suggestions about the overview or the game feel free to ask!
  18. Here's my game concept, the art is completely original, made by myself. New HUD, new ARMOR and more! NEW NPC!! New DEVELOPMENT IMAGE!

    Concept Illumina Project

    Hey guys, What you guys think about my new project. Here somes graphics that I made:
  21. So, I've been working on an engine as well, and for quite a while now--but I've never finished it, since I keep starting over from scratch. This time I was able to salvage a lot of the logic from a previous attempt, so I've gotten pretty far relative to the week or so that I've spent back on it now. Here's a video demonstrating my camera system; right now, my engine is not chunk-based, so when the camera hits the edge of a map, it will stop scrolling, and the player moves from the center of the screen. Eventually I'll make it work for chunks so you get an open world, but this is the first step in getting there: (Watch in HD so you can see the code--it will help explain what's happening, since there's no sound)
  22. Hi everybody, As a game developer who works with pixel art spritesheets but who don't know how to use programs like photoshop properly, I always had the same problem when I wanted to change the color pallet of some spritesheets: I had to change the color of each pixel of each sprite of the spritesheet. That is so annoying, so I decided to develop a program which could do that for me. When I started to design the program I decided that it would be great if everyone could use that program, even if you have 5 years old, and that's what I did. Of course, I did it using Java as it will be easy to use no matter the OS you have on your computer. I called my program "Changing Pixel Jutsu"(from this momment, CPJutsu). It is so easy to use: You pick a picture, you click on the pixel to select the color you want to change(you can manually add it by writing the rgb values), you write the rgb values of the new color, you click on the "¡ ¡ ¡ C H A N G I N G P I X E L J U T S U ! ! !" button and it's done. When you've finished, you only have to save the picture. I think I couldn't make it more easy to use. Also, it is so light and fast, and no progress bars when opening it or when working with it! My program isn't finished yet(I want to add more functionalities) but I want to know if it is easy and comfortable, so I need some people to test it and tell me what they think about it(will send a google form link or something like that with questions). But, as this is only a prototype and I don't want people downloading it yet, I've protected it with a few firewalls so only people I want to will be able tu use it. Also, there is a method for me to know who have sended it if I find a download link, so please don't be bad. I'm not a very rich person, I won't give money to the testers, but they can keep the testing prototype to use it whenever they want before I release the final version(it works right now, I'm using it when working with my spritesheets actually). So, if you are interested in giving a helping hand, please pm me and I will tell you what I need and I'll send you your copy. Thank you!

    Concept The Wheel

    1. Premise “We are all just Cogs in a machine...” The Wheel is an enormous floating fortress, drifting around in the void with an ever increasing population of many different alien species. Most of them are outcasts and run-aways, some are survivors of doomed worlds while others are prisoners, unable to find their way home. The Wheel itself seems to have no clear origins, though many attribute the creation of the original fortress to an ancient, unknown race of engineers that vanished long ago. Over the course of thousands of years, The Wheel has gone through many changes and iterations, as new species discovered the fortress, often by accident, their spaceships became permanent fixtures of the station as their technology was integrated into The Wheel. Now the floating bastion is a hodgepodge of different alien structures, ships and tech all meshed together to create a strange, albeit functioning whole. The fortress is not stationary and it isn't direction-less either. Occasionally, ancient drives and engines somewhere deep within The Wheel fire up like a hiccuping giant and either steer the fortress towards some unknown destination or teleport the entire thing somewhere else entirely. As the fortress passes by habited systems, some of The Wheel’s residents take the opportunity to raid these planets in order to steal valuables and resources, and to kidnap slaves. So far no single group has been able to figure out of The Wheel’s full capabilities and several factions and gangs are vying for control over the ancient fortress, either through politics or through force. 2. Summary The Wheel is an online RPG with a heavy focus on Roleplay. Most of the game takes place in The Wheel itself, which is divided in to several different wards that serve as home territories for major guilds. To keep things fresh and dynamic, The Wheel 'moves' and as new planets become accessible others drift out of range, giving players new locations to explore every couple of months of so. The main focus however is a game of politics, influence and control. Heavily inspired by the Planescape setting (The City of Doors, specifically) and the likes of White Wolf RPGs, players with common goals can band together in Guilds or Gangs. Whether they want to gather wealth, personal power, political control, explore new worlds or unlock the secrets of The Wheel itself, that is up to them. 3. Art Style Considering the setting and potential mature themes, I feel the usual cartoony or animesque style doesn't fit. Instead I would like to go for a more 80’s inspired retro futuristic art style. For examples, see games like Hyper Light Drifter, Undungeon, Narita Boy, etc. 4. Mechanics The Wheel will not make use of levels and a limited sort of class system. Experience can be gained by defeating monsters and solving quests, though experience is more like an extra currency used to purchase Skills. Skills or a combination of certain skills will give a player access to more areas and interesting bits of lore and information, and unlock crafting recipes. Combat effectiveness of a character will depend on two things; Equipment and Enhancements. Equipment, although having a significant impact on a character's stats should be considered secondary, as all equipment is dropped on death. Things like rare and unique weapons and artifacts can be found, though running around with these in public has obvious risks attached too them. Enhancements will determine your primary play-style. Each character has five enhancement slots in which you can fit any type of enhancement (Mutations, Tech, Psionics & Manifestations), although not every class can use all enhancements of a certain type. Enhancements follow a certain thematic trait that grants a number of buffs, special abilities or attacks depending on the enhancement in question. For example, 'Plugs and Ports' is a Tech enhancement that allows you to access and hack terminals or defense systems. 'Acid for Blood' is a Mutation that grants you immunity to certain hazards, though also gives a character an Acid Spit attack. By mixing and matching enhancements a player can create a unique toolbox of abilities that fit their play-style. 4.1 Classifications Organics [Humans, most Aliens, Intelligent animals, etc.] Average in everything. Can use enhancements of all four types, but with limits. Flexible. Mechanicals [Robots, Androids, Holograms, AI, etc.] Slow, but increased physical defenses & hit points. Start with one rank in Engineering for free. Can use certain Tech enhancements that no other species can use but will never be able to use Mutations. Ethereals [Dimensional beings, Supernatural entities, etc.] Increased mental defenses. Largest magic/mana pool. Free ranks in knowledge skills. Access to all of the Psionic enhancements but can never use Tech enhancements. The Eldritch [Monsters, Slimes, Living Plants, Lovecraftian Horrors, etc.] Minor increased physical and mental defenses. Free rank in Forbidden Lore. Can never use Tech enhancements and only a small, limited selection of Psionics, however they have access to special, more powerful Manifestations. 4.2 Skills Skills are still subject to change as planning continues. Skills Related to Game Mechanics • Genetics – 10 ranks, allows discovery & creation of mutations • Bionics – 10 ranks, allows discovery & creation of Tech usable by both Organics and Mechanicals • Cybernetics – 10 ranks, allows discovery of Tech exclusively available for Mechanicals. • Engineering – 10 ranks, Creation of weapons, armor and other technological items such as drones and portable turrets. • Meditation – 5 ranks / 10 ranks for Ethereals, allows discovery of new Psionics. • Forbidden Lore – 5 ranks / 10 ranks for The Eldritch, allows discovery of Manifestations. • Chemistry – x ranks, creation of ‘potions’ and hypos. • Nature & Survival – x ranks, useful when scavenging & exploring planets Knowledge Skills (Used to gain more information, can be used for RP, or called by DMs, might also be called during certain events / quests) • Knowledge (The Wheel) – x ranks • Knowledge (Dimensional Theory) – x ranks • Knowledge (Universal) – x ranks • Knowledge (Physics) – x ranks 4.3 Enhancement Types Mutations Mutations are usually only available for Organics and The Eldritch. Mechanicals lack biological components to mutate and an Ethereal’s biology is usually too complex or too advanced to accept any kind of tampering. Although mutations can provide someone with amazing benefits, they often come with a draw-back in the form of physical changes, some of which might be quite gruesome. Tech Cybernetic implants, advanced prosthetics, brain stimulators, etc. Tech comes in many forms. General Tech such as weapons and gadgets can be used by anyone, although Tech Enhancements can only be used by Organics, generally in the shape of bionics and Mechanicals who can easily integrate new Tech in to their bodies. Ethereals have a hard time integrating tech in to their bodies for the same incompatibility reasons as with mutations and The Eldritch are simply too alien for common Tech to work on. Psionics In a broad sense, Psionics refer to any natural ability that can manipulate the world or even reality without the assistance of any intermediate tool or device. It is essentially ‘space magic’ though with alternating origins or explanations depending on who uses it. Organics and The Eldritch have the capacity to learn some psionics, though only the ancient Ethereal races can truly master it. Manifestations Also called ‘mantles’, Manifestations encompass Summons & Transformations. Examples Acid for Blood [Mutation] Usable by: Organics, The Eldritch Sabotage: Use Acid to get past certain barriers Acid Spit: Attack that deals damage over time Immunity to certain hazards such as acid damage, pools, traps etc. Plugs and Ports [Tech] Usable by: Mechanicals, Organics Allows the user to access computer systems for information and bypass certain electronic security measures. Force Specialist [Psionics] Useable by: Organics, Ethereals Force Shield: Increases physical defense by 10% Force Barrier: Summon a temporary impenetrable barrier Force Bolt: High damage projectile though with a long cool-down period The Specter [Manifestation] Usable by: Ethereals, The Eldritch Specter Form: Allows you to turn invisible for a short duration, increases your dodge chance. Summon Specter: Summons an illusion that deals no damage, but distracts enemies. 5. The Wards 5.1 The Greenhouse 5.2 The Labs 5.3 The Factory 5.4 The Hive 5.4 The Circus 5.5 The Gaol 5.5 The Market 5. Final Words I wanted to do so much more before making this post, such as have things written out in more detail and having more mock-ups for the different wards ready but because of work and other real-life priorities I have been slacking a bit. The Mock-up images are not final, and a few of them lack details I wanted to include and I'm hoping to spend a couple of evenings and weekends smoothing them out of time allows. Either way, I'm wondering about people's thoughts on this concept. C+C welcome.
  24. Since open source is not released yet, i've been writing down ideas i get on a whim in a text file. I'm pasting it here because this area is called "Show Off" and maybe you're interested.. maybe. *Hunger/Thirst/Energy system that drains from 100 to 0 percent over 10 hours. When maxing out your statuses, get up to 150% experience. When your statuses are 0%, only get 50% and start getting hurt. 0% sleep will knock you unconscious for 1 minute at a time, getting you back to 1% sleep giving you time to make it back towards the nearest town. *Each player gains a spell at level 30 called "Alter Ego". Allows you to transform into your alter ego for a minute. Each player is given a randomly generated looking alter ego, using the paperdoll slots. Ability gain is dependant on your stat build. *At level 50(max), each player is given a spell called "Last Words". A hardcoded spell that does different things depending on stat build, but always has a crippling effect on your character once finished casting, good way to end a fight if you're confident it will kill your target. *Adding rain to the engine. Rain can occur randomly but not more than once per two hours and not longer than 10 minutes at a time. Rain gives you a WET debuff, draining your status bars faster. Can be avoided by wearing an umbrella or raincoat or activating the mana shield spell. *The further you stray from safe areas like towns, the higher danger levels become. Each danger level number adds a number to the range of players you can attack works like the wilderness, but in a rectangle around safe zones. Add an integer to map data and map editor, so i can set danger level for each map. *Day/Night cycle. Nights are shorter than days since most aspects of it are negative. Some monsters spawn during the night that dont spawn during the day. NPC houses can be robbed during the night. PVP danger levels are doubled during the night from a maximum of 10 to 20. *Add a spell that has different effects depending on nighttime/daytime. *Add bombs that can break cracked walls, like Zelda.
