Hello my name is Kiteand i have this wild idea to make a first person shooter game into a mmorpg. Kinda a wierd idea i know but it just might work. I have never tried to make a mod before and i searched here because my friend says this is the place to look for answers. Well i looked and didnt find anything that i saw could help me. I have the maps covered but i want to edit the main menu and the chat system and how you access a server because i will have just one server for The World which will be the base map for the game. I want to edit the music in the main menu and also get some new skins. The MMORPG will be never ending it will have missions and quests but i dont know how to go about doing this. So far my clan the JKE think its a good idea because i will have a leveling system toadd into it too! Well so far my only approch to this game is the maps. I have the maps and the music just no knowledge of how to edit the actual gamelike the AOTC mod. Could someone help me!
Well, one thing I can tell you is that making an MMORPG out of the Q3 engine is impossible. However, you could make something similar to it. You could make a map with easygen with whatever terrain you want. Then, set up the sides of the terrain with teleport triggers to take you to the other side once you've reached the edge. Then, make models/skins of characters you want in. Add some .sab files to make some melee weapons. Then set up some triggers to spawn NPC's when you pass through them, etc. And if you wanted to edit code, well, find a compiler, get the JA SDK and figure it out from there.
You want to make JA into SWG?
He didn't say SWG... he said .hack... Anyways, the closest you could probably go is what I posted, correct me if I'm wrong.
well that sounds similar to the idea i had with the telepipes and all. How would i find a compiler would pakscape work? Also how would i edit the menu and the music i would like to do some new stuff to it like secure some user names in it! thanks for the feedback too i really appreciate it.
To code you need to know C++ and quite obviously you don't even know what it is.
well calm down dude its been decided it will be a map mod god your like so un comprehensable you know just read ok yes i dont know what it is i am a maapper not a moder as you can see so be a lil nicer plz
comprehensable isn't a word ^_^
lol your right oh my god lol ^_^ but do you understand what i am saying all i wanna do is inprove the game so people like me and other .hackers can enjoy a game that will never hit the net until sameone like me roles around all i want to do is have fun i used to think mods ruined the game but they really dont it depends on who you are but thanks for your imput i will try not yo ruin thre game for you as a player
