Hey all, Ive recently become enamored with video game design and am currently enrolled to in classes to learn as much as i can. in the meantime i was hoping to get some help and maybe guidance down the path i am looking to go… i have a VERY clear idea of what i want, i have NO IDEA how to implement my “world” if i could just get the world layout set… i would be on my way.
i am having the hardest time finding tutorials or help in the way i need it because i believe i dont know the names of the things im looking for. any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
2D or 3D
Turn based(more of a round than a turn, character stats will determine what and how many of each action take place during each round)
Open world but only 1 screen at a time. THIS is what i do not know how to logically create inside my world. here is a link to an old old old MMORPGAA that i am being inspired by. www.realmserver.com or google “the realm online mmorpg”
i dont know how to make it so the world is real time and populated but as a player i can only see the screen i am in. the game linked above separates them into rooms, but i have no idea how to make “transitions” or bridge these together without it being diablo or skyrim open world"
i want to have to engage with the enemies and choose to initiate combat by clicking.
TLDR: help direct me to the proper terminology to create a Action Adventure turn based open world, TURN Based combat game. i can provide videos and screenshots of what im trying to do if that helps.
also im aware of the difficulties of making a mmo and all that, im not trying to make it pretty or even sell it, i just want help getting the framework down
