the mana world

Post by Shura » Fri Aug 27, 2004 10:32 pm

hi folks,

just now i was talking to chetic, bear and a couple of other ppl on irc and we though of what to do first. items, maps... well a lot of things.
anyhow, i think we should get an overview of the world that is going to be created by all the map-devs. like a big map w/ every continent listen or something. also potential dungeons could be marked on the map and so on...

along w/ it a legend or story that gives a good fell to everything and teach about how things are in our world and maybe even how it was created by some kind of god-creature, different kinds of tribes, religions or just a definition of the "bad-guy". :twisted:

how about it? is that an idea? :roll:

ps: i don't think letting the map-devs do small maps, items and stuff randonmly is a good thing to do...

I hear you man and I agree :)
You can just put out entrances to dungeons on the map, cos the actual dungeons could be improvised by the mapper :D

P.S: I'm chetic ;)

alright, i generated a world-map. that means you could use it as a texture on a planet-like object. :)

plz be aware that i have a slow upstream. so please only get these pix once and if you really want to see them.

A complete flat map of the TMW Planet

Great idea Alex I was thinking the same, it's time to build a real/fantasy world. With a complete world we will have a lot of fun and a lot of other players interested in The Mana World.

Wow very nice artwork I like it a lot and I think I'll put it also on the website to start talking about The Mana World world, but I think there should be some continents instead of only islands :arrow: Everyone please post your opinion (anyway this greatly depends on the story) :wink:

a couple of guys have already said this but as i said, i haven't made the map by hadn rather generated it using the gimp. the rest though (planet & stuff) is my work. i don't think having that many islands will give us great tradeoff. since they can be uber huge when you look at the size of the map. ;)

i have found an quite interesting document while searching for other MMORPG projects on sourceforge.
http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/once ... f?download

this may help us getting an idea of how things "can" be done. maybe we could extract some ideas and form then to fit our intentions, eh? :)
before anyone starts calling this stupid like other things i have suggested read it. :wink:
