Corinthia!

I would like to make a thread about Corinthia! We have actually made enough progress for me to feel comfortable making a thread for the server and explaining it, also putting up some screenshots

Corinthia is going to be a semi-classic server with Nations. I know some of you don't like the idea of nations, but I thought I would TRY to make a server with nations. Anyways, there will be four nations, and each will have the ability to control an element. (Fire, Earth, Water, and Wind).
The main story of Corinthia will be you as a young adventurer. You set out into the world, in hopes of improving your control over your element. Along the way, you will face battles, and other numerous quests that will unlock nation trainers. At these said trainers, they will teach you new attacks or defenses in your nations element. For example, you will find a Wind Trainer, and he will teach you GUST. It will repel an enemy with wind, blowing him away from you and inflicting damage. You will need certain requirements to meet each trainer, though. Such as already meeting your first trainer, and also having a max HP of 4. There are a few jobs on the server right now, as well. We currently have Farming, Mining, and Fishing. You can harvest wheat, and turn it into dough. From the dough form, you can cook it into bread. Bread is the final product, and you can sell it to various farmers on the server. You can also sell the wheat. Mining is pretty self-explanatory. You mine rocks with a pickaxe, and sell the pieces for Gralat. Fishing is self-explanatory, too. Cast the line, get the fish, sell the fish.

The server will also be PvP. There will be many points in the world, at which your nation can take over/control. As of right now, the story line is still a little skeptical, and may change alot. But we have been working hard on this server.

Below I have included some screenshots. Check then out, and also check the server out. We look forward to seeing some people on there, and we are also hiring. Check the Hirings forums for more info on that.

Thank you from the current Staff:
Stowen -Me- (Manager/Owner)
Gunderak (Co-Manager)
VoltNightmare (Admin/GFX)
Brutus (LAT)
supreme legendary (LAT)

Also, thanks to Killa Be for the occasional help.


*NOTE: The custom inventory is not the open-sourced one in the code gallery. It was scripted from scratch by Gunderak.

I like the burning effect when you leave the bread in the oven for too long.

I changed the name to Corinthia, because I was getting sick of people referring to weed. It was pronounce RA-STA-FAIR-EE-UH anyways.

Emera is a jewel in the roughEmera is a jewel in the rough
Just logged on and checked out the inventory, and I nearly puked.


I don't mean to be a pain, but I honestly think somebody threw this together in under 10 minutes. Here's why I don't like it.
  • It takes over 1 second to open and close. As much as I like the fade in/out transition, it's too long if you just want to open your inventory and close it again.
  • You're drawing BLUE gui profiles over a YELLOW bitmap profile? Come on.
  • You're using the default classic text profile with a blue control. Again, that's just being sloppy.
  • You're drawing "borders" around the list options. It looks takky, and I really see no need for it to be there.
  • Some of the icons overlap the "borders" and that just makes the borders look even worse.

Also, your nicknames take literally 5 seconds from hovering over the player to fade in. The effects take too long.

To improve
  • Reduce the time it takes for the inventory window to open/close
  • Change the backing bitmap to blue or something that matches the other controls
  • Remove the border, or edit it so it fits and the icons fit inside it
  • Reduce the time it takes for nicknames to show/vanish

For starters, The inventory is not finished.
And I did not throw it together in under ten minutes x-x
I will however be making changes to the GUI of it.

I says it looks like it has been. Anyway, if it's not finished then why have you released it? Perhaps provide a temporary solution?
