    Hey guys :3

    I currently have a basic networking framework set up for zerahypt, so it is possible to play Zerahypt together with someone else. But I was wondering, what kind of multiplayer mod should I make? If any at all.
    It would seem a bit boring if u can only see other players, and now interact with them.

    So what kind of multiplayer would u guys like to see?(ex: MMORPG, FPS, Minigames, War)

    Leave a post & let me know what you think.

    Local split-screen if possible, but for the net I'd like..... Damn that's a hard question. Ummmm...... Arena battle would be pretty sweet if SYRSA could provide a small map. (vehicles, guns, npcs, maybe... just some ideas)

    What about racing?
    racing sounds pretty good.
    maybe racing,
    or racing.

    I'd personally prefer racing.

    ps: racing.

    split screen is actually very far away from networking. It's possible, but the way vehicles and such are coded, it'll have some issues with vehicle entering/exiting n stuff. simply because most scripts are made to work with only 1 pirizuka D:

    Competitive team vs team including vehicles or something along those lines.

    I would love to have a Roleplay server like in San Andreas Multiplayer where everyone takes part in a job etc :D

    I think a simple MMO server(or servers) would be good. Might have to have more costumes or characters to distinguish players, or perhaps login names showing

    Making a Multiplayer Mod like an RPG (sort of like The Elder Scrolls or Fallout maybe?) with exploring, adventuring, quests and a Job system would be pretty neat, but is it going to be possible? The game itself is fun but not near to finished.

    Okay, so I would like to have very specific rules to the kind of gamemode, cause currently this post has been used as some kind of poll.
    To submit a request fill out this form:
    Code:
    What kind of game do u want the mod to include?
    
    Is it a solo or multiplayer game?
    
    What are the rules for this game(technical rules ex: 2 lives 2 teams spawn in at opposite sides, last team remaining wins, etc.)
    
    What will be given as reward for winning or losing?
    
    What mood will the game be in?
    
    How much time does an average game take?
    
    (optional) What map would the game be set in?
    
    (optional) Does the player require a certain item in order to start this game?
    
    (optional) [Note any additional information here]

    Also, it would be helpful to implement stat saving into this mod, if you could. It can be annoying spawning on the ship every time the game starts, and it would be annoying if you lost your score every time you joined.

    >What kind of game do u want the mod to include?
    Racing

    >Is it a solo or multiplayer game?
    Mutliplayer would be nice, not entirely necessary though.

    >What are the rules for this game(technical rules ex: 2 lives 2 teams spawn in at opposite sides, last team remaining wins, etc.)
    Either it'd be spawn at set place and get to the other side with a few people,
    the first person who makes it to the ending point wins. Or alternatively it'd be based on time,
    every person would do the race on their own and score would be synced later to see who had the best time.
    It'd be easiest to have races with one type of vehicle per race, montruck race, flyrotter race, etc.

    >What will be given as reward for winning or losing?
    Scoreboard places would be enough in my opinion, best overall times for all races played, best latest,
    per race scores and stuff.

    >What mood will the game be in?
    Not serious, extremely loose on rules, just enough to have somewhat of a game

    >How much time does an average game take?
    considering the maps, maybe with a couple of rounds.. 5-10 min, maybe less.

    >(optional) What map would the game be set in?
    Athnias and the dessert. but any big map with a lot of space would do, these are just the biggest as far as I'm aware

    >(optional) Does the player require a certain item in order to start this game?
    A car would be nice, not that the actual player model wouldn't be necessary for the game/mod to function

    >(optional) [Note any additional information here]
    It'd be most enjoyable if all vehicles used in race would be dicked around with, just a bit faster than the normal speeds.
    can give you more mockups if people even want this or you take me serious (highly doubtful)

    Suggestion for the mod: run a check (from the host) and disable (probably just deletes) mods that are not being hosted with the server, and push mods that are being hosted on the server to connected clients. For example, you most certainly would not want to have someone delete something client-sided with my console mod and either a) update server side, removing it for everyone or b) become asynchronous with the client.

    Also, would it be possible to login to the game for multiplayer with out forum accounts? That would be the most efficient way to save data as well (of course, you could join as a guest as well, but no saving).

    I imagine implementing an actual playable version of the event this song depicts would be desirable. Zerahypt x Motorstorm and whatnot.
     
  20. it would be cool to have it like minecraft
    single player, local multiplayer (LAN) and worldwide multiplayer
