Quote:I've been brainstorming about this topic for a while. It's actually led me to taking some programming classes, and im thinking about getting certified as a vg programmer from my local community college. So that i would be able to contribute to the idea.
Anyway, here's my idea:
I like the idea of it being very free-roaming, but i do agree that i would like a story. I dont believe in playing the characters because you should be your own character in a game, the whole point of a game is to be in the story!(but thats just me, maybe we could play mal or the crew)
I know that a lot of people absolutley hate japanese anime and i've never played this game, but ragnarok seems like it wouldn't take much time or money compared to all of these 3d rendered games that everyone is talking about. Realistically, i think if a team worked on it, we would be able to enjoy it in a few years. Im not big on anime myself, but it would be a pretty fun experience.
To solve problems of jerks playing the mmorpg we could have a solo, offline campaign that you HAVE to finish in order to get online. Then the jerk's would be discouraged because they have to play for several hours before the get online. The solo campaign could include different story lines. EX:
1) Open the game as JOE SCHMOE on 'Earth that was' and you take one last look as you board the spaceship TITANIC, and the ship is so vast it serves as its own in-game world where you spend maybe 30-40 minutes walking around, maybe a small mini-storyline(blue sun!). The storyline ends with JOE SCHMOE looking out into the black and it fades out.
2) JOHN DEER wakes up as a worker on a planet in the process of terraforming and stumbles across trouble ( blue sun!). Mini storyline blah blah and then he dies.
3) Civil WAR! Choose a side, and follow the story. You see SGT malcome 'mal' reynolds. BANG BANG, KABOOM! and the alliance wins. After that, a screen appears where you can fully customize a character and go online.
Then you would be able to open shop, work as a hunter, trader, smuggler, assassin, bounty hunter, companion(not sure how that would work), etc. Live in the 'Verse and be free. Buy a ship, get a small crew together, maybe even a cook.
Also i was thinking, given the amount of server space, there could be different worlds, maybe keep adding if the game is a success. Traveling from world to world? no problem, hitch a ride with a ship that would actually take a day or two for your character to arrive at the destination. Get bored on the ship? maybe some active chat rooms while you're in your bunk or organize your items, create weapons out of raw materials, make something to trade, or read a book!(zshan yeu? sp)
Meet the crew, badger, nishka, and the mudders! if the actors liked the game they could play too! Well, tell me what you guys think, i hate long posts so sorry if you had to sit through this long post and it wasnt interesting enough. Thanks for reading!
OH YEAH LOOK AT MY SIG. LOL i've had it for a while.

Not to pee on the parade, but the show has more chances entering its 10th season than a commercial Firefly MMORPG ever being made. MMOs are too expensive and require too much production time for someone to take the risk. Heck, Star Wars is struggling to stay afloat as is and underwent some major re-tooling in hopes of turning a profit.
Now, with all that said, I could see a fan-based Shockwave game working. There's some decent small time games out there with on-going players and all that jazz.

SWG is failing because of SOE and Lucas Arts constantly fighting each other. LA wants Jedi, SOE puts them in... Jedi are too uber, LA works w/ SOE to nerf the game to hell. SOE publishes nerf, everyone leaves. Truth is that SWG should never have had Jedi, and most of the problems would not have existed in the first place. Hell, with all time time they have spent revamping Jedi, they could have fixed every bug in the game. I think a Firefly MMO would work much better because it isn't about an uberclass (Jedi), it is about friends/crew and all. As long as you can't play as a Psychic it would be easy to balance and play.

i did point out in another thread that with the upcoming release of Neverwinter Nights 2 with it's high mod-ability, large mod community, and the ability to create a Persistant World like that of a MMORPG, making a Firefly MMORPG would not be that hard. it would still take alot of work, but much less then starting from scratch.
