Crafting game

ichihaifuichihaifu nullPosts: 259Member Uncommon

Well, not crafting-only-game, but a game where crafting matters. This is the type of game I'm looking for.

What I wanna do is for example be a chef, where I have to either buy the wheat or flour from market, or gather it myself from fields and then grind the wheat down to flour before I can use it for crafting. Get what I mean?

 

I'm looking for a game where I dont have to worry about leveling myself to do crafting, a game that I can play along with my other games for fun while still doing something meaningful for other players. What would be totally awesome is if I could have my own farm plant or chemistry lab where I can do the gathering and do maintenance for the place.

 

Closest game that I know of where you can do most of this is mabinogi, but after dabbling a bit in to that game it turned out it wasnt exactly what I was looking for.

Any games out where I can do these things?

    Yeah I've been eyeing EVE for god knows how long, but I'm kind of afraid to step in to that game because of all the things i've heard about it.

    And on top of that I'd feel bad if I didnt get in to the game and had to pay monthly fee for it.

    Care to give me some insight on the game itself other than the title?

    Has the marketing changed on that game? If I recall right, that game was HEAVILY limited for those that were not paying subscription?

    Well talk to someone get the 21 day trial.  And/or there are $5 dollar sales all the time and even if you lack time to play sometimes it's the one game that lets you continue to advance still.(just login for a few minutes to update your skill queue.)

    It's honestly one of the harder games to turn a profit through production (at first but once you get going it should be a somewhat steady income).

    Take the jump and don't be afraid to ask for help. ;)

  • ichihaifuichihaifu nullPosts: 259Member Uncommon

    How big is the monthly fee in eve, though?

     

    Also would age of wushu be a candidate?

  • tarodintarodin canovellesPosts: 98Member Uncommon

    A tale in the desert... i dont know if stills online... only crafting and you are allowed to use macros... building egypt, it has a nice concept...

    Its not a game to do as a side game, wushu/wulin crafting is to dependent on instances (for recipe drops) and the resource collection while mostly save can have the nasty surprise of players jumping kicking and murdering you its a free for all pvp game whit rules that lower the random killing but its still a real possibility

    $15 a month but if your succesfull at making money in game you can buy plex(game time) with isk(the in game currency).  However I wouldn't go into the game planning to do this.  While possible don't make the game a job.

    As someone else mentioned wakfu has a pretty in depth crafting system.

    Lastly Final Fantasy XIV in a couple months.

  • tarodintarodin canovellesPosts: 98Member Uncommon
    one month is 14€ and if you buy 3 is cheaper... BTW if you do instrustial stuff... that's tradeskill you can earn lot of money and buy a game item named PLEX... each item is a 30days of game time, so you dont have to pay monthly

    Ah alright so neither of them in the end is a candidate.

    Wushu would be but I dont want to go in to instances/fight for my materials/recipes unless I choose something like hunter/skinner where my income would depend on the animals I take down.

    Can you give me some detail on FFXIV? Ive always known FF series but I never played one. I dont really care about the story, but what is expected from the game when it comes out? Also if I were to pre-purchase now, seeing that would get me to beta, when are these betas?

    Forget Age of Wushu, silly crap based on random number generator, one of the worst trading UI/system you can find and free alts to craft whatever you need, all resulting in non-existent economy.


    EVE is the only game with complex production system and player driven economy that actually makes industry people matter.

  • aspekxaspekx Brandon, FLPosts: 2,167Member

    Fallen Earth is a good candidate. you can try the game out as f2p, but there are serious crafting limitations if you choose to stay f2p. im not sure as to the monthly fee but i believe it ranges from 10-15$.

     

    the game itself i enjoyed. the community that exists in chat is unbelievably cliquesh so seek out your fellow crafters in a guild or on the forums would be my only suggestion.

     

    other than that the combat mechanics seem to work fine by me. harvesting is pretty straightforward as you are simply scavenging piles you see lying around on the ground.

     

    they recently introduced 'farming' as well, but i left when they changed the f2p crafting restrictions.

     

    the game is certainly not overpopulated but there was always a steady stream of people that i found in the towns and occassionally out in the wastelands.

     

    as for a specific profession like 'chef' i really cant think of any except for the now defunct SWG.

     

    if you do find a game you like post it back here for the rest of us to check out as well :)

    Have you considered Darkfall Online?  Because it is a full loot game, and almost all items are player crafted, crafters are very important in DF.  It is an intense game, though, and it sounds like you might want something more laid-back.

    he is right on all counts about Darkfall. as well as his remark about intense, as in FFA full loot PvP.

     

    this one aspect keeps more old school, hardcore crafters i know away from this game than anything else. if they came out with a nonpvp server i think Aventurine would make enough back to further improve the pvp game.

    And this, are many people playing it and do I need to level up to do crafting?

    Since Scortchien hasn't been completely honest with you in regards to your question, I'll tell you.  The community is very small, barely a hundred players play it now days.  I know this for fact cus I used to play it and lost interest once the  community dwingled.  It is worth playing if crafting really is your thing but honestly there's barely any players around to benefit from so eventually this may seem like a waste of time for you.

    Where wasn't you completely honest? try an active community, try not mentioning the lack of players.  There's barely a community on this game to even consider it to be active.  Barely a hundred players, even if they're all on whenever they can spare time, doesn't make it that active especially if all of them have an inconvenient time schedule.  Hell last time I checked there weren't even any players if any in the so-called newbie help channels.
