The Steam Punk is an MMO based on the steam punk style, there will be two different versions of it, one which is browser based with images only and one which is going to be a flash based .exe file which will be available to download when we reach that version. The game itself will be a typical MMO where you can interact with other players, have an avatar which you can personalize by changing the clothing, hair style/colour, skin colour, eye colour, facial hair, facial expression, etc. You will start off with the basic clothing, depending on your class (which you choose during registration) you will start with different stats.
You will also start off with a vehicle based on your class too, like if you are a trader you start with a pick-up truck, to add to that you also get a space ship. The space ship will however not be able to travel to certain places till you upgrade it enough, this is to stop you getting killed by going to higher level areas at the start.
Most of these features are not fully implemented yet as I am the only person in the development group at the moment. As I wish this to be a MMO people want to play I will now say that any ideas or concept art you wish to be introduced to the game please send them to me via email.
Version Info and Server Status
Currently the game is in its first release stage. I have been informed that there may be problems with registering at the moment, where you register and then cannot log in with that info. Please be careful when entering your info that it is the correct info.
There is no system to authenticate your email yet so please make sure you enter a real email, updates are the only thing sent to the email you provide, they will never ask for your username or password. I check the database daily for fake emails, these accounts will be removed, and sensible names please, or those accounts will be removed also.
The server is currently Offline
Well, since theres been alot of delays in the coding of the game I have decided that I will not publish the game's url until it is complete and without bugs, then I will begin to change and add more things as they are requested. This means that I will also be releasing the Flash .exe version when the web version is released as they will both be worked on simultaniously (at the same time for anyone who doesnt know what that means). The main design is going to be made to look like old machinery while the avatars are still being worked on because of the many different ways I can create them, anyone who wants to give me ideas for the design of any area of the game can submit the images to my email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The flash version of course will have a few more features and visual stuff than the web version, which is basically anything the web version cant handle. I will be making the web version with some little bits of flash but I know what its like being at school/college/work and their computers not having a high enough version of flash, so I will offer the choice to have HTML only.
Ive also got work on another similar MMO web game, Oddworld Online, which will have a few of the same features but also some different ones. So Im alternating in between the two projects.
Im having problems finding some free hosting space with MySQL, PHP, crons (preferably through crontab or something similar), and no ads. Even better would be unlimited bandwidth, but not needed, so if anyone knows of one then please let me know, thanks.
Anyway thats all, just thought it best to give a quick update of how its going since I havent done anything on here for 2 months.
