    It is better to improve the existent world...

    Probably not a good topic to waste your virgin post on.

    and why?

    a network-game in a game is well done.
    if the world was anymore, what to develop... multiplayer on 8 players too "small".

    in MMORPG it is possible will go back into beginning of history of Arcanuma. let there will be 1500 year, in those times when the most technological city Vendigrot only began to transform in ruins. When were yet strong Elf's magicians...
    In beginning of war between technology vs magic.

    the same is whole storage of not only different histories(quests), but also development as in magic so in technology. New charts and spelss... more correct not new a forgotten or lost.

    First off, your posts would probably have been more comprehensible if you didn't bother translating them.

    Second, an Arcanum MMO would be blasphemy and you know it. The Age of Legends could be done so much better in a singleplayer environment.

    why?
    singleplayer - it is possible to continue history after 1885... em... 1910 begin new saga :)

    for me to you question. you played on a network in Arcanum?

    What I am saying is that a singleplayer game will always be better than an MMO storywise, and if you want to make a game about the Age of Legends you want to capitalize on the story. Simple as that.

    it is difficult to explain it...
    when you do not have a scroll of resurection, and you yet and magician Necromant. You "lift" the friend in a game as zombi - where he will live while mana will not make off. And hurry in a city buy a scroll...

    (PS. about a network game)

    Xz, xento and me managed to have a multiplayer game running for about 30 seconds before the pile of shit crashed.

    So no, can't say I have.

    Well, if anyone wants to play a free-to-play MMORPG in a few years time, which contains that steampunk-high fantasy feel which Arcanum had, but if you don't wish for your beloved Arcanum to be spoiled by the corruption of MMORPGs, well I'm involved in a project, I suppose unofficially inspired by Arcanum (considering that I'm probably the only project member who has played it), but with original lore, art, game mechanics and etc to be spoiled by the MMORPG scene.

    This project could horribly fail, but who knows; time will tell, sed tempus fugit.

    спасибо за понимание.

    Simply, now yet is not games RPG which would be able to surpass the uniqueness of Arcanum. Аs in the plan of genre so in multiplayers.
    In what from existent game-RPG, in multiplayers, there is such:
    * character can be developed how pleasingly(magician, technician, техно-magician)
    * all of sprlss "interestingly" work with living players (that "hypnosis"(; or to "call spirit" from a dead body)
    * to steal things for players in motion, it is so possible yet and fully to undress
    * playing 8 players it is possible to create two party for 4 in each(or who how will want)

    However tried to create strong character, there will always be ktoto stronger (a game is a "stone, scissors, paper").

    wait and hope on the output of Arcanum 2 is dull. Already advertise "legendary" games as Diablo 3... campaign which will produce Arcanum 2 will get nothing, again game will be lost among "trash".
    And what to attract now "people" not carefully thought out of game, but simply needed already beautiful picture\graphic...

    It is true that many players just want stunning graphics, cool sounds, and the satisfaction of killing things, but there is another little thing which many gamers don't like: a monthly cost.

    In the game I'm designing, there isn't planned to be a monthly cost, so even if the game is bad graphics wise, people may still play it.

    Personally, I wouldn't purchase a "pay-to-play" game, but if I was top level player of the game after playing it for a year, I may reconsider, and the game I'm designing will have bonus "pay-to-get" features (mostly of the superficial nature, such as cooler looking clothing).

    This game I'm designing isn't meant to be a master piece; in fact, I kinda hate MMORPGs; but whatever can break us into the market is cool for me.

    I will say honestly - in games appearing after 2003 on РС, I do not play.
    I love the series of the same "Might & Magic"(RPG).
    no, I am not fanatic MMORPG.

    simply desirable to play good games with friends, а not to talk about them...

    В Arcanumе я не везде был, не все квесты выполнил... но каждый раз обговаривая эту замечательную игру, хочется видеть "за спиной" не AI(in game), а друга с которым можешь пообщаться через чат в Online.(sorry don't translete to english)
