*steals idea from DF forum*

Being the #1 fanboi I am, I decided to help people understand why I am looking forward to CoS so much...well, that and because these forums have been a little quiet lately :(.  So, if you have any questions about CoS, I will try my best to answer them.  I think it's just easier to have all of the questions on this thread.

So post away people, POST AWAY!!

P.S.  Also check my guild site's FAQ for more info

Cheers!

    Been lurking for some time. Finally created an account here so I'm going to ask some questions that have been knawing at me.

     

    1 - How are MMO Magic creating such a large world? Are they using hight-maps, doing it by hand or auto-generating it by computer

     

    2 - I'm confused by what I'm seeing in the screenshots. Though I understand that the game is still in very early development, I'm seeing lots of high quality models (Age of Conan style) next to more modest quality models (World of Warcraft style). Will the finished game be aiming for high, medium or low minimum computing requirements?

     

    3 - Does "qtask" have any involvement in this project? Are they the money, management, manpower or partner of MMO Magic (is MMO Magic an offshoot of qtask?) or are they completely unrelated?

    (sorry to ask that one, a guildie is claiming one thing but I don't see anything that backs up what he says)

    Answer: We are not using height maps, however, we are doing both autogenerated terrain as well as handcrafted portions.  We're using a new system designed specifically for use in this game.

    Answer: The game will be aiming for medium to high computing requirements.  You are correct, there is a mix of model qualities in the prototype.  This is due to the fact that we needed an entire city in place to test the game engine early on.  Because of this we built quick models early on. Later, models have been created to replace many of the originals, so you will see high quality models mixed in with low.  Eventurally all will be of the high quality variaty.  However, the technology behind the engine includes many features to allow lower powered systems to run the game, even though there are often millions of polys on screen at the same time.  The idea is to make the world look great, but let it run at a good framerate on lower systems as well.
     
    3 - Does "qtask" have any involvement in this project? Are they the money, management, manpower or partner of MMO Magic (is MMO Magic an offshoot of qtask?) or are they completely unrelated?
    Answer:  Qtask?  Where did that come from?  Qtask is a great product, but has absolutely nothing to do with games or MMO Magic, Inc.

    Wow! Thankyou for the quick reply!

     

    Looks like I'll have to update my machine a bit thou. It handles WW2Online fine, but if I don't upgrade then games like this will just pass me by

    Pretty much transfered, we lost track of all the members of The Untold Prophocies.  Recruiting will happen later, but we are oficially the first guild in CoS.  :)

    Forums are being worked on now.
