Ah thank you for clearing that up for me - it makes much more sense.
Now I currently need;
Game name ideas
Like said above, be creative, try not to use simple words like sword, dragon, something that has multiple meanings.
In the world of Avarast, they'll be a possible couple of thousand unique NPC's (unique meaning people give quests, have stories behind them and play a strong role in the story). And thousands of other Normal NPC'S (footman, civilians, hunters, travelers e.t.c.) With each update on the first BETA, hundreds of quests are going to be added from me and from anyone willing to share their creativity. So we need characters - Who they are, what race/class they are and there quests they have to give to you. Remember to put a back story to it so there is a purpose in the quests. (I.e. Gather 7 pieces of boar meat ain't going to cut it unless you say what's it for and why the NPC needs it.)
Lastly we need books to be written by writers with big imagination. The written work has to be in medieval format. Take account in the olden day English that was used. These books can either be; * Short stories (Childrens/Adult) that are tales with strong plot twists. Give your self a medieval name for the author or just state your own * Skill guides. Are short books that have information about a certain skill. These can include; lock picking, cooking, hunting, armory, repairing weapons, fishing, the art of persuasion, how to survive in the wilderness, poison/potion brewing e.t.c. * History books. Here is where you can make up historical and medieval events. Any fantasy heroes or kings that may of made an impact upon the world, wars that may have spurred, saviors of society and anything else you might think of.
The generic "The X of Y" (where X is a synonym for group, and Y is synonym for either good or bad) name for a bunch of people may not be the right path. It might, but just be wary.
Ideas: The Gathering - may be a group of refugees The Everlasting - possibly a bunch o' wizards Demise Afficionados - certainly a cult Lords of Ruin - evil dudes
You may want to consider the culture of various groups of people. For example, if you use the word 'tribe' you can't have a bunch of space-faring super monkeys that all speak British English and sit around playing Chinese Checkers all day, to exaggerate.
Your ideas are interesting, I might consider your examples, the gathering can be survivors of a shipwreck. The magus guild can be replaced with the everlasting, Cult of suffering will be replaced by Demise Afficionados and I still like the Order of bane rather than lords of ruin.
Though what do you mean by 'consider the culture'? The tribe is basically a tribe of orcs and voodoos. Wouldn't that be considered as one?
<SNIP> 1. The Alliance (The emporer and his elite group) and their sub factions. (Groups that are formed and are orded to do tasks by the emporer. You must help them 2. The Horde. (The evil one and his followers) and their sub factions (Unholy gatherings that perform summoning, assasanation and other evil tasks). <SNIP>
You may want to change the names of these factions... Otherwise people will say something along the lines of 'zzzomg WoW totally thought of that first... herp-a-derp'. Just sayin'
True... OK what about these names?
Tribe of Rulgor. (An Orchish warchieft) Order of Bane (In replace of the horde). The brotherhood of saviors. (In replace of alliance). The Cult of suffering. (A warlocks group) Dwarven survivors. The marauders. (Bandit guild) The magus guild.
Oh and we need people to support the FWP community, so if you can, put these in your signitures. (Credit goes to 88yoyo for this )
Screen shots are coming really soon. (Expected a week or so) So in the mean time, has anyone got any game names to brainstorm?
Sakisa (You probably already know him) created a d3d LIB plus an example. This includes 1st person, 3rd person and other camera mechanics. You can find this here
If that didn't help, go to your camera object (obj_camera) and execute the following in the step event.
//States the camera should point to the players relative position.
We currently need name ideas. Something creative that fits with the RPG. Try not to use words like swords, dragons, slayer e.t.c. We need RPG-styled names. For example, on our forums complex suggested Reverie - (n) day dream, fantasy, air cas . Once we get 20 or so, I'll post a poll so the community can vote on which name they prefer.
