the required systems for the gameplay are not completed because we are not getting any other help. Our team is really small.

Only core things left was to finish combat fully, item equipping and redesign character creation to allow the female gender.

After that it would be:
  • Add items to the database
  • Write/plan quests and put them in-game using the quest system
  • Write/plan skills and put them in-game using the skills system
  • Fill the levels with interactive NPCs (atmosphere)
  • Effects like poisons, sleep, petrified etc for greater variation in combat.
  • Music
  • Finish first ruin(/dungeon)
  • Finishing touches on baddies

A lot was actually done (which players couldn't see), but I am not a concept artist , I am just a scripter.

I think Soala and the rest of the Ruins team is gravely overestimating how much work on systems and whatnot they've done. As far as I know, none of your coders have experience with years of system maintenance on a highly advanced server. Take it from me who do, once you think that "hey all our systems are almost done!!!" you'll find yourself realizing a few weeks later that "oh ****, half of these needs to be more or less remade with the same functionality to support this and that" and "oh ****, we're missing a ****load of more stuff".

Still though, good luck with it, it's a lot harder than you think it is.

You clearly do not know who I am and I see that you judge my skills without even knowing anything about me or my skills in that department.

I don't know who you are, enlighten me. And I wasn't judging anyones skills. If anything I was doubting the experience of the staff team, and knowing how long Soala has been "developing", I had every right doing so.

Just because a lot of my previous post was censored doesn't mean I tried coming off as hostile or anything, on the contrary - was genuinly trying to be helpful.

I figured how hard it was to complete a server from scratch a while ago, and believe me, I would never say we are so advanced if we actually were far from it. What I did show to players was roughly 1/5 of everything that was done. Having the core systems needed to input gameplay would make me release everything else I have prepared, and this would easily make Ruins have enough content to be hosted.

You could eventualy read the first page so you can see that I want applications to be sent by forum pm or in a mail.

Secondly, you could read the last page to know that Ruins is dead right now and I don't plan on continuing it even if some people offered me servers to host it on.

What a shame. Everyone always disappoints me, oh well. I got my hopes up for nothing.

Your inability to fund the server is more than enough reason to blame you though.

Why wouldn't you accept help? Sounds like you're just using this as an excuse to give up...quitter.

I understand that you might not want to upload your work on someone else's server, but if you really wanted to keep the project alive, you could easily continue working offline until you're able to buy more server-time. Levels, graphics, animations, and concepts can all be done without a server (and if Testbed ever comes back, you can test scripts out there).
