    With GreedMonger being a craft heavy game (which I love) what is your design intent or ideas for gathering? 

    You could have the Tajmahal from crafting system but if it is created on a quicksand gathering system it could come crumbling down quickly.

    I think that UO had one of the very best gathering system.  There wasn't all these artificial combat walls to slow down gathering because the crafting system lacked any depth or challenge.  What you managed to dig up out of the ground depended on your skill mostly not what level area you were in.  There was also just leather, none of this light, medium, heavy, super heavy, epic, etc. in progressively higher level mobs.

    I like the sound of this game, seems very similar to Wurm Online/SWG. In Wurm it becomes a chore maintaining everything you've built, will buildings and stuff have any kind of decay over time that will require repair?

    That will give you an idea as to how crafting will work. It wil be very in depth and not quite like other games.

    We will have people running live stock farms, wood cutting, mining, foraging, fishing etc. It will be an in depth resource gathering system.

     What you gather will be what you gather, how you use it to craft items will dictate if it's heavy, etc.

    So will people's parcels contain little, some, most or all the resources?  Does a person chose the resouce at purchase or are then given tools to build it to what they want?  If it is something you build yourself can you change at a later date to be another resource.

    Awesome concepts BTW!

    You guys mention the ability to sometime down the road conquer other planets, so I'm getting this whole rise of nations feel to it. So I'd like to ask a couple questions. I never really had the chance to play UO, as I started with DAoC.

     

    First: How will technology advance? Starting from mud houses to where we are now took thousands of years, how will that be implemented into the game? (Heck, we haven't managed to conquer another planet yet either). Will there be a cap as to how fast you can advance regardless of population?

     

    Second: As for raids and dungeons, how will drops work? Will the first people that runs to the corpse be the first to look it? Or will there be a loot system?

     

    Third: How will the death system work? 

     

    This actually sounds like a breathe of fresh air that the mmo community needs. Everyone has been so focused on the content and how to get there, that they stop to remember that we actually enjoy being a community.

    From what I have heard the drop system will be realistic.  If you kill a boar you get meat, hide, bones etc.  Kill a goblin you may get some tatered blood stained pieces of armor and a broke ass weapon.  Nothing to write home about.

    I agree I think this will be a nice breath of fresh air.
