Want to make an RPG?

Hi everyone,
I'm looking to make an RPG. The problem is, after looking at others' terrains and map, I realized just how bad I am at it. I'm looking for someone who can do terrain and can make ideas with me. I'm a programmer, and will code.
Is anyone interested? I'm open to any idea at this point, so if you have a specific type of RPG in mind, I'd almost surely go along with it. We could discuss ideas and what the rpg will be like if someone wants to join me.

What can I start with? I'm looking for a terrainer after all :\

I programmed a few systems: leveling, SP, backpack, and job up. I guess I can post those if it would convince someone o.o. I'm not going to devote a bunch of time if no one's going to help me.

You have to understand that WC3 is no longer as popular as it used to be.
You may not get the support that you want.
A proper game doesn't really require an awesome terrain. Just something temporary will suffice.

> I'm not going to devote a bunch of time if no one's going to help me.
Then I guess you might as well don't start at all.
You sound unconvincing. It's hard to get help if you're not convinced yourself.
Of course, overconfidence is a problem too....

Well, at least something playable if possible.
As I said, awesome terrain isn't all that important.
People will come eventually if your game is good.

I think it is - I won't play games if the terrain looks terrible. Anyways, I've started working on something else, continuing a game the maker quit from. The terrain's already beautiful there. So, this can be closed.

Some advice for you: You're much more likely to get interest if you have something playable. When you have the core systems setup, then you can make a basic map to show off the systems you have.

Even if you feel your terraining skills arent up to snuff to make a map you are happy with for the final product, having a playable version is a must if youre looking for other people to be interested.

    Good luck to the hurricane path people. Is TH still in Houston?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    I think so
    +1
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Yeah we got nothing here did not even rain
  • Ghan Ghan:
    We could use some rain.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am not complaining though Hurricanes are not fun I have been through alot of them
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I evacuated for it just incase since I live in La Porte pretty much right on the water (in Houston area). Didn't see anything. It's a good thing for me anyways.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    It's too bad that Blizzard messed up so terribly with Reforged.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Still has a 0.6 user metacritic score.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    (Out of 10)
  • Varine Varine:
    I haven't even tried it yet because everyone said it sucked. How do you get .6 out of ten?
  • The Helper The Helper:
    I am waiting for Dwarf Fortress to come out on Steam then I am on it.
  • Accname Accname:
    I play Dwarf Fortress from time to time.
  • Accname Accname:
    Its Okay.
  • Accname Accname:
    But the performance is sub-par. Does not seem to be well optimized.
  • Varine Varine:
    Is the Steam version coming with a graphical overlay or is it using the ASCII graphics still?
  • tom_mai78101 tom_mai78101:
    Steam version has the graphical overlay.
  • The Helper The Helper:
    Steam Version has graphics, a new interface and will be integrated in the steam mod stuff
  • Blackveiled Blackveiled:
    I didn't think WC3 Reforged was that bad. It pretty much did what it stated (to me at least), but then again I can care less about reforged campaigns and all that. I just care about gameplay.
  • Varine Varine:
    I think people were hoping for a resurgence in mod support. I have little interest in the actual game tbh
  • Varine Varine:
    Plus I know they added that Dota precedent clause where Blizzard can steal your shit which isn't cool.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They sold Reforged to the community as primarily a huge graphical uplift with high res textures and redone cinematics.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    They even showed one of the redone cinematics at Blizzcon and that very cinematic wasn't even in the released game.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    So I think folks were angry about that.
