[PROJECT]  MMOSDK (was WoW Factor)
« on: April 01, 2012, 03:33:46 am »
HI all - some of you may know me from the #modcraft irc channel.

For some years I've been working on a 'clone' of WoW.  Or really, I'm using WoW as a source of artwork and game style but making a general game engine.  Of course that means, I'm attempting to get very close to WoW in every way ;)

I've made a large amount of blog posts to track the progress of the project, so if you're interested in following it and reading more about my experience making it, here you go:

Thanks for reading.

Yes this way we get perhaps to an full MMO environment in the future. Then we only need own texture and model and we are totaly away from Blizzard :)

Keep in mind to make it possible to modify the client easy to do other game mechanisems then wow.

Exactly, my whole goal is to not tie it to WoW specifically.  People always ask me why I'm bothering to 'remake WoW' but they need to understand i'm only using WoW data :)

No, I made my own model format (i call it .m)

I convert everything in WoW to *.m -- adt, wdl, wmo, m2

So it's quite a complex format

If you want you can have a featured project board and a traker if you will go sometimes in beta or alpha state. Just ask.

The baord you can use to show your progress and perhaps collect idea from others.

Might I ask what language you're writing in? I mean, knowing the community of Modcraft, they're preferable languages is C++ and Java. But seeing as Java would be a COMPLETELY retarded choice for this kind of program, I'm assuming C++. But I still feel like asking.

OnTopic: Looks really amazing. Really, it does :)

Thanks
Keta

Short one word answer is there, but basically I wanted to make an MMORPG client and server for learning purposes and I thought I would be much more likely to work on it if I had good art assets to work with and don't have to design a game and make art at the same time as coding it.  I'm purely interested in the technical challenge.  There's nothing that says you couldn't make another game with the engine I'm making - though it would have to be similar (as in, an MMORPG style).

Of course along the way I am picking up information that I hope to help the modcraft/etc community with.. I have already tried to share what I know with ppl on the irc channel and I plan to help update the wiki as well where appropriate..
