With permission from Skot we can finally get into the planning phase, or pre planning phase more like it, more so into the think tank phase.
We obviously need to figure out who has what skills and which and or what they would like to provide this newly founded pet project of ours with.
So anyone yearning to partake in our endeavor for an Lz Zombie Game riddle me this!
Zombies don't need something when they go on
boat trips. What is the thing that they don't need to use?
Ponder on this meanwhile we continue...
For this thread Just say i want to for easiness then Send me a detailed message on Lz containing following.
I am: Real name w Email and various ways to contact you
Qualities: Pros and Cons of yourself.
Education&work: IF relative to our cooperation and if it can assist our progress.
Skills&Knowledge: What software hands on skills and general knowledge and experiences you can field.
Fields We`d need is as Following:
CEOs: Organizations, motivators. Etc
(Basically those who`d keep us all united and take the quick decisions obviously after informing us and allowing a democratic hearing of such.)
Legal Department: Law and NDA follow-up’s.
PR Department: Public relations
Art Department: Conceptual and or actual picture scenarios and character drawings/comic strips-
Writers Department: Plot lines, Quests, npc lines, general story of the game itself.
3D Department: Landscaping, Objects, buildings, character modeling & texturing
Audio Department: Ingame Music, Game Sounds, Voice over and general sound editing.
Programing Department: Pathway finding,AI, Scripting.
People with necessary code language knowledge
( Java,PHP, Visual Basic, Python,C++, C# combined w XNA, Ruby, Lua, Mel)
For starters, understanding of algorithms is also preferable, but one can’t demand heaven and earth at the same time so the clue here is to use several voluntary programmers and have some more experienced programmers look over the code for errors and apply shortcuts which less experienced programmers may not know about. Also keep the source code within the ranks of the experienced to avoid pollution.
Creative Consultants & Game Testers
Those who aren’t fitting into any other category, but still have valid knowledge and contribution input to further the game progression.
Each Department will have heads with veto, based on their experience and knowledge.
Communication methods we need:
A web page/Forum( Public relations&showcasing)
Teamspeak/Ventrillo server (Department Management& Decision making)
IRC (Public relations)
Note though this will be nonprofit, fully voluntarily and open source as we can keep it, without leaking too much information of how and or what we`ll do.
We`ll keep it inside our ranks and avoid any leaks about how to, so that no big shots will run ahead of us.
Simple because they are better staffed, skilled or has more dineras to throw at their project.
Depending on game type profit would be possible, Digital Sales/monthly fee lower than standard. But this profit will likely go into an Lz Fond for future projects, servers and or actual payments. I.e. A Movie, Another game, Lz Con, where we possibly actually support people with travel, cause people matters to us.
If I missed something please point it out to me in an Lz Message and I’ll update this thread, Other than that please keep this discussion visible and avoid side tracking/off topic discussion.
Oh and the answer for the Riddle Is a Life vest.
Ps- Dont forget to send me a friend invite, cause you cant send messages to me without it.
To be honest, I don't think there is a person or people on here who is capable of developing the size game people are asking for. We may need to save all the developing for a major developer, but we can think up ideas of what we want in the game. Art work, videos, or a comment on the matter will help. I'm trying to find out what game people want right now. Here's the link to the thread.
True, but you never know the community might surprise you, there are after all several very talented drawers of various shapes and forms, which goes a long way when it comes to getting concepts out.
There are also talented writers amongst us which probably would be dying to get their pens wet(keyboards stroking) And I know of at least 2 people which isn't as half bad at creating music of various sorts.
To add i am part of another forum which are creating a Samurai typed Game and one guy there i think would be interested in creatin buildings for us if i asked, he`s skilled enough that these people use him, its a while since now but he might have grown in his skills since last time.
I also Know Several "coders" of various strengths in real life, nothing which would help us without someone experienced though. So i Guess this is sorta like a would you like to participate thing and do you know anyone in rl which would and have any knowledge needed to help progress along type Call for duty. Its Just to get us wet and start piling up names. I Personally will Store every message i get in a list/document for further usage. But For a Step one a Mod would be in our range, but we still need this kind of organization, more or less to compile data and willingness. Nothing wrong with being spirited my friend.
And yeah i`v seen it, although you might want to incorporate more details to it, ie like what every game type there is and what they mean in a downward list.
Ps can you link my discussion to yours? That way we can keep these various discussions linked and organized
So question is, can i/we count ya aboard?
If So Can you Send me a message containing what i requested?
Hey, I started this whole LZ video game craze on here, you can be damn sure I'm in. Just accept my friend request and I'll be able to send you a message.
Good to have ya aboard. Sounds from what i view you host a great deal of experience in the field of 3D and Concepting, which is great. If Willing i think you`d be a excellent head for the 3D Department to sort lesser experienced material out. But before i get ahead of myself, could you provide me with the information i require, its just to get a Rooster list of willing people together.
Guess i can work with the information on that site. Just hoped to lessen the workload for myself.
If you have anything to add i`m only a message away.
Well we are a far away from that stage, but being a game tester you must have many valid inputs as to what you seek from a game, and add to that being a fellow Zombie lover.
Send me a message with more details. Like i asked for and we`ll get to that point someday.
Sidenote, how you like the game, star wars the old republic?
And are you guilded yet in that game?
