I love this game, and the way it can deal with multiple and advanced stuff.
But, From a designers point of view, is it possible to use the engine to literally rewrite everything? Take the same scope of map areas, weapons use, sleeping and inventory use and what not...and rewrite the story?
I mean, I am just getting into the idea of game coding, And I know that theoretically any coder can use any engine to build a game but would this be viable for a beginner, or is it all completely advanced and custom coding stuff?
Sure it's possible, just look at Priboi Story. The team took ShoC, removed the entire story, and replaced it with their own.
I have a better question, is there any real way of making the single player game into a co-op muilti play game, alife, stashes, anomilys, artifacts, quest changing levels and all..the server single player gaime is the co-op multi player game choose sides and what not..
