Post #203825 EO Inspired 2D MMO

Hey guys, just thought I'd share something with you all. I guess my journey to become a software engineer somewhat started on these forums, and this year is my final year of university, studying computer science. To honour that I've decided to make a basic 2D MMORPG! Development strictly speaking shouldn't start until after the christmas holidays but I got a little headstart. 

There's a video of my current progress here. It's a very crude implementation of a server at the moment but I was just seeing what I could do with what I currently know. When development properly kicks off I'm going to start looking into how to structure packets and such. I'm not too worried about packet security as it's not a security based course, so I don't need to worry too much about encryption and things like that but if anyone has any resources that I can use when the time comes that'd be great :)

This is some great stuff. For "just seeing what you can do" you've got a lot done!

If you ever open source it I'd love to contribute ^.^

Loved to help when/if this ever takes off. Not doing much for GD myself since I've pretty much scrapped my last project and went back to just doing concept art.

Since this project will be graded on my code I can't take any code submissions or make it open source until I have it graded, which would be about May time of next year. However, I will accept any help with visual assets, like sprites and such. I'm currently just googling around for things to use XD

What size are your tiles? If I have time I'll make a few things for you.

After getting this into a working beta, you should see if you can put it up on Byond. I heard about it from my younger brother and apparently he plays some DBZ inspired games on it. I don't know too much about it but it may be worth checking out to establish a following.
