When I say crafting of appliances, I am talking about games like A Tale In The Desert or Wurm Online where you build yourself a house and a bunch of machines/tools/stuff that you use to then craft new stuff. But I'd like a prettier game if possible (bright and colorful and not too realisticly boring like ATITD and Wurm or low-res like Minecraft.) And it would be really nice if the game had actual NPCs and an actual story, unlike ATITD and Wurm and Minecraft. Bonus points for pet and mount breeding or capturing, and/or farming sim/fishing sim minigame play.
I want to help design and develop a PvE-focused, solo-friendly, sandpark MMO which combines crafting, monster hunting, and story. So PM me if you are starting one.
