From what I hear, theres gonna be a way to make your own server like in the old days :D. I'm gonna have this cool server called Sketch Book. After the opening cinima, the player's character goes insane and then the graphix in the game are going to be that of my drawings. Gray scale, and animeish :D. I have alot of nifty things I plan to build for it, such as a rather nifty colectable card game like magic the gathering, but is extreamly different: as in, not about a battle of any kind.
Other things will be my own varient of the player house systems, and some sort of computer system were there will be a kind of "email" system were players can "email" other accounts, wich then comunication with other accounts will be easier because you can email offline accounts. What is different from 2k1's email, you might ask? mine will be good, unlike 2k1's. Other things may be some games the character can buy, as well as a system to adjust your sub screen and stats skins, etc.
I will be redoing alot of the default game things. Not just the graphix, but the player's movements, etc will be re-scripted. I might make it so there will be 8 (count them. not 4!) posible directions the character can face. Swords will be re-done (kinda like dragon koden, but slightly different). And alot more will to be expected! WEEEE!

I am almost done with a nice web page for the server made with shockwave, so you may need something another to see it, although I'm not sure because this is only my second ever web page. I will post it's url when I finished and if enough people seem excited (exitedpeople's count>0).

Also, I am not hireing any developers untill I know the server gets up, so no one gets in the way of my ideas, as well as I will be the only one disapointed. Don't worry, I am better than most with scripting, graphix, etc... pretty much all of the developer's work.

as for the other kind of staff, I will not be hireing faq, and I already have my gp chief.

uhh, I think that is all.

well, the ground might be a bit white or gray, with the ocasional flower, puff of grass, and cigarett butts... jk about that last one. the ground will likely be white. as for the name, I kinda like it. why? because it is different... kinda like my ideas for the server.
Oh, and I posted to chest images in the a part of the forum about graphix... I hope the img showed up in it... if not, tell me so I can atatch them to it.

It's a nice idea, but, not to discourage you or anything, 1 out of every 10 playerworlds pass. Spend LOTS of time on it and get a dedicated team and you'll have a much better chance of getting it up.

I know. I've got alot of a very complex plot done. the server wont be done for a while. also, I've heard a rumor about a player world system were players can make thier own servers much easier. kinda like the old g-server.
