Well, I was thinking why not a doom RPG? the doom engine can odviously do out door areas pretty well and with Zdoom's ACS scripting... who knows?
Your thoughts?

John, before you start asking for help on your new mega-cool-and-whatnot project, make sure you have something to show first (screenshots, map downloads, etc). Keep in mind we've already seen thousands of upcoming projects that actually never got done.

The best way to learn ACS (well, the basics at least) would be to look at the scripts the Hexen maps use. ZDoom's scripting is based on and an expanded version of Hexen's scripts.

It has already been done, well, sort of.

LilWhiteMouse once made "A Furry Tale". An RPG'ish experience using Zdoom. It even included money and shops. Unfortunately the project seems to be discontinued.

There is a working beta-version, but it is not obtainable anywhere.

Well, Hexen already has an RPG version (the Korax mod) but of course that required a lot of source editing.

But values like speed could be gradually increased (SetActorProperty), dunno about max health though. And GooberMan's conversation system would certainly come in handy.

Maybe I can talk to LMW about letting me host it on my site. :)

hrm...i would prefer something more like a rogue-like thing if i wanted to go ina dungeon...maybe implement some SLIGE type of deal into ZDooM (all of the rogue-likes i have played have random map generation...i think random floor generation is a requirement, correct me if i am wrong though)?

no way i would be of any help...other than low-end system playtesting...

Nice idea, but if your going to make new sprites don't steal mine or those from other people.

I was already working on a Doom RPG. I'd post screenshots but my site went down and I don't know what's still alive. Let me check.

I think this is about all I have:

http://mancubus.net/~nanami/images/ohcrap.png

Those are placeholders and stuff. We won't be using any of the normal Doom monsters unless they're DeHacked. It's going to be (assuming we ever work on it again) a medieval style RPG.

Torn, before you start telling people what they should do when asking for help on their new mega-cool-and-whatnot project, make sure they are actually asking for help on such a project first and not simply making some kind of suggestion/comment on a new project they'd like to see. Keep in mind we've already seen this tag used thousands of times in completely inappropriate places.
