Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Hello. Any update? For now, the game promises to be great. I am waiting for more :D Thank you for your interest. Unfortunately the game has been sidelined indefinitely, mostly due to the fact that I was working on it solo and life got in the way. I dabble with it from time to time, but the schedule...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Figured I would share an update on recent progress with this project.The decision to rework the majority of the game from the group up has proven worth it as we continue to get closer and closer to a demo. Not only have we implemented the majority of what had been completed for the proof-of-concept,...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Just wanted to share a quick update: I am in the process of reworking the overwhelming majority of the game's code from the ground up. I'll likely be live-blogging each Saturday night via our Patreon until I'm done, and our goal now is to work towards a minimum viable product that we can start to sh...

thanks for the update. Did you get our email with the questions for the interview?


I did get the questions, but thought it best to hold off on answering them until I was 100% sure we could solve some of our issues. I'll get back to you on the interview as soon as I can.

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Just wanted to share some progress with everyone. After a frustrating weekend of dealing with the crazy math involved with this project, I finally did the thing that I have been avoiding for quite some time and opted to rebuild this project from the ground up. There were a lot of issues that were se...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Thanks for the update. The gameplay video looks amazing. I'll be checking the IndieDB article soon too. If you're still up for a mini interview about the project to be posted on our blog we can arrange it via email. Maybe in the next 1-2 weeks, if it's okay with you. Let us know and keep up the exc...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

I am still knee-deep in the process of updating this framework, but I just wanted to let everyone know that we now have a page on IndieDb.com where I will be posting devlogs as often as I can. I've put together a gameplay video but keep in mind that it is not edited and it's fairly difficult for me ...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

First, my sincerest apologies to anyone who has contacted me and not received a response. I've been hard at work on this project and am finally ready to show some progress. I am crossing my fingers that once you get to try the tech demo in the coming months that you will understand why I have been d...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

It is. CFML = ColdFusion Markup Language. I built CF web applications as a freelancer for years so it's now my go-to when working with databases for sites. I abandoned Adobe's ColdFusion not long after they acquired Macromedia and have been using Lucee (formerly Railo) ever since.

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

I've been working on the quest system in my spare time this past week and one thing became very obvious to me: I was wasting a lot of time bouncing between database tables to create relationships between quests, npcs, items, etc. Luckily for me I was a freelance web designer for almost a decade befo...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Yes, my setup allows each account to have multiple characters. I think ultimately I'm going to go with moving my login system from using an account name/password to an email/password combination. That way sharing your account name with others doesn't jeopardize account security since it's no longer ...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

If I'm understanding your earlier post correctly, since the buddy lists main key is their name, I can just substitute the character name for the user name when I am adding the buddy? So when I add user A's character Z to my list, I just pass the string of "character Z name" instead of &quo...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

No. It doesn't work like that because the nickname is a parameter chosen by User A anyways. It's just an alias, or another name to show buddies other than User A, but it's always univocal. If understand it correctly you would like buddies of User A to assign him a different nickname, in their own b...

Re: Project Vague - A Sandbox MMO Adventure

Buddylists use the user name as the main "key" to identify one player from another (since usernames are unique in SFS), but they also support a "nickname" which is any custom name you choose for that player. Wouldn't this be useful for the "character name" in your game...
