Wayfar1444: So indie it's not even on kickstarter
« on: 31 March, 2013, 09:49:09 PM »
Dwarf Fortress really made me want to do a procedurally generated project, and I noticed a distinct lack of cutting edge, or even barely awesome space MOO/MUDs.  I started work on my third personal game project.

I have reached alpha completion on a sci fi MOO, Wayfar 1444.  It's kind of a dwarf fort, conquestmud campy/far future sci fi game that I've been working on for about a year.  Things that are working as of now include procedurally generated planets, kingdom of loathing inspired reroll system, modern style skill based advancement, exploration & crafting, vehicles, aircraft, turrets, starships, player owned shops & buildings, hacking, procedural wildlife and resources, robot control and a unique dice pool based combat system.

Wayfar is a proceedurally generated space text multiplayer rpg thing created by an internet friend named genmac and myself and a few other people have helped out by adding such things as a dubstep mode

  [laff zone] Aphteroid was killed by forces unknown.
There are rumours of rogue dubstep robots roaming one of the planets but I cannot confirm or deny.

We also have spaceships, planets, jetpacks, lasers, dangerously sentient arguement bots, weather and sometimes we have players and many other exciting features that aren't all dubstep related.

We are
Hawgpadre/genmac - pays for everything with his vegas slots dollars if he doesn't spend it on weed first.
Aphteroid - also known as cataphteroid. recently converted to christianity  in order get laid.
ASmallMoose = may or may not be massively obese. but he is fat.
Adminski - occasionally shows up and posts mail telling us how awful we are
Dragon - A geniune Iranian
Dibolcrif - was forced to ascend at gunpoint and doesn't really know why or what to do.
Eazy - currently starring in ice boat fish truckers reality tv show in canada or something
Me - A drunk

We don't know what we're doing  :o

  Whilst developing an action to let NPCs fly planes, I decided to test things
    out by sitting a complex two ranger in the cockpit of a vertibird and
    forcing him to perform this action. He took off perfectly fine before
    mysteriously dissapearing out of the cockpit, various alarm bells were
    ringing because he appeared to be performing ~5 actions a second.
  It was then I realised I'd overlooked a single line in the action code which
    actually moves the vehicle, it actually moved HIM rather than the vertibird
    but because the vertibird wasn't moving anywhere he was stuck moving east
    until I killed him. He'd made about two orbits of WY-1444 by the time I
    relieved him of the horrors of travel_flyer.
  Remember folks, it's always the small things that break the big things.
