How would you code something like Furcadia?
«: August 17, 2009, 11:32:34 PM»
I've seen and participated in the DEP discussion board on FAM, and I was just wondering if anybody knows how somebody could create something like this game, perhaps provide an alternative to Furcadia.

Obviously they wouldn't be competing very much, as users could use both the new game and Furcadia, and Furcadia will always be more popular.

I was wondering what kind of coding languages, where they can be learned, what kind of servers and financial investments would be required? I looked on google for a while, but to be honest I don't even know what to search for. Can you help meee?

IIRC, Furc was written in C... Not C++... C...

I actually get that, my dad used to program.
I'll ask him about making something like this, than you for the information Zim!

where were you planning to get the money for (a) server(s) for this project?

my idea was simply funding it myself haha.

eventually the market down here will open back up and I'll be able to get a job. I doubt it'd take longer than getting down some intial coding, inbetween searching for a job and school.

I'm not especially familiar with the cost of a server, or multiple servers, so I'm not entirely sure.

I'm pretty sure making and maintaining a game is a hell of a lot more work than you think it is

Yeah, haha. You're probably right!  ;D I've just been curious about this for a while.

Also, that player who wanted to code his own game was a total tool towards DEP. After making his mildly successful game, he came back an apologized for everything he ever did when he realized how hard it really was.

Of all the players I've seen on Furcadia who have actually wanted to make their own game, only one of them actually has done so. He was already extremely technically inclined to begin with. If you don't know programming languages you're probably a bit screwed.

You can read some of what he's written here about his experience.

Hmmm I dont think hes that smart, -----> Seven months later, I quitted that job, [] 'QUITTED' is not a word lol

You don't have to know how every single word in the dictionary is spelled to be smart.
