I would like to join, but more information plz.

:confused: wrong thread! This should go to Off-topic or Discussion thread

@ ragchan, All of the additional information you could want can be found on the website (www.planeshift.it),

yes, indeed, it is the wrong forum category!

Hmm, well since nobody has commented on the game yet, I must say the design is quite polished and the visuals look really good. The idea of it being an open mmorpg sounds cool - imagine how big it could get as the community could create new content. It looks like it’s been around for a while too. Just a pity that I have a bad history with mmos, so I should probably stay away:p

Checking out the videos it seems that one of the major things that needs a lot of work is the interaction of the avatar with the world. Things like spell animations, fighting, walking. Like, walking in games should be seamless, but I notice that the footsteps are out of sync with the speed of the character - i.e movement is noticeably faster than the strides, so the character is kinda sliding around. That’s the sort of thing that I would always notice. I know it’s fairly hard to avoid some sliding, otherwise the characters take forever to get somewhere, but tweaking the effect always helps. And you guys need to make an official gameplay video once you’ve got those things ironed out.

I’m interested as to how long this has been online?

I first saw this over 6 months ago.

i first started playing this game some 2-3+ years ago, can’t really remember that well anymore, anyways its had a good progression :slight_smile:

I’d like to work on it, but my computer can’t even run the game, so…keep up the fantastic visuals! :]

@ Dan, Firstly, thank you for the feedback… Planeshift has been in development for around six years… I find it amazing to think that the game has been created out of peoples free time.

@Felix_Kutt, The development team grows on a weekly basis, so as time goes, the rate of development also increases, which is quite promising for the future.

@Dudewithasock, That is quite a shame, but it is also promising to hear that you would have liked to join the team :slight_smile:

i would join the development if you don’t mind me being slow :wink: (i have a few other projects all-so at hand, but some low-poly is all ways fun!)

haha qft it’s pretty resource intensive. but the graphics are nice for an mmo.

i abhor playing MMOs or else i’d check it out, but i remember seeing this a few years back and it’s nice that you guys have done so much with it. good luck with it.

Indeed valarking, it is resource intensive… but we think its worth it :wink:

And thanks for the ‘luck’… :slight_smile:

This looks fantastic, I am glad I stumbled across this thread!

Excellent polished visuals, top notch :slight_smile:

Thank you very much for this kind comment, its this kind of comment that makes all our hard work worth it :smiley:

Here are some things other people said about PlaneShift…

(on the topic of joining the team)
“do it!
I’ve always been impressed with PlaneShift and how much they’ve been able to accomplish. I encourage all artists with some spare time to join up with this project and help these guys out. They are putting together something truly fantastic.”

“[COLOR=#000000]Those guys are doing a great job!”

“I tried it, it’s rather good. The world is incredible”

Beautiful OS project. I really like to contribute something and think about commitments later when i know how it feels. What about listing some (example) tasks which we Blenderheads had to fulfill. What do you expect IN DETAIL? (I already read your recruitment page)

you guys have really updated the looks , nice job :smiley:

very nice, im impressed with this one, even though i dont play RPGs of any kind. i would definatly look into this one though, but the idea seems cliche… what with the warlocks and dungeons. is there anything revolutionary about its concept, somthing thats never been done before (besides being free)? i have always looked for an rpg that was set in modern times, or just some other time period besides the wizards and dragons deal. but thats just me.

but this does look like a very nice game, i dont think i could do much besides throw in easter eggs, make suggestions, and probably just get in the way. my mind ticks in a more modern setting, not dungeons and dragons. But you should be proud of whats been done so far, finally someone can kick that annoying runescape’s ass!:smiley:

Sorry - Double post.
