Ooh ooh! Pick me!

Also, compulsive poet.

Ok so we should organize ourselves into small groups for each section. I don't know a good size limit but I think each group should be large enough to give anyone who wants to try a chance. But not too large, smaller groups are more efficient. Pick your top three preferences (or what you're good at).

So I'll start us off, and everyone else can quote this in turn.

Skills: Eventing - 1st choice
        Mapping  - 2nd choice
        Database - 3rd choice

Those are my top three picks. This should help sort us out a little better. I hope.

Right, from what I understand, sometimes things fall through. But in the spirit of staying positive, I think this has a lot of potential. Wait, winkio are you going to be working on this? Amongst your many many skills, I can account first-hand for your ability to program the enemy AI.

Who says we are even using Blizz-ABS?

I will put a lot of work into organizing and keeping the firsts posts up to date, keeping morale up, pushing deadlines, compiling everyone's work together, putting demos out, etc.

In terms of development, yeah, I'll work on some parts ;)

Welcome aboard!  We are not going to ask you to do anything, it's entirely self-motivated, so once we work out the story and features, start checkin out the production thread for mapping/eventing tasks you might be interested in!

How exactly does mapping work with so many styles being brought to the table?

Do you have each mapper do a certain "area" of maps, to preserve continuity?

pretty much.  Each 'area' or place that uses the same tileset will be a task, each only one person can take any one mapping task.

That's how I thought it should work. Say you have a castle town (in theory), this means they do castle town IN as well?

I'm just trying to formulate boundaries in my head on a vague concept.

it would be a separate task, but the same person could take both tasks if they wanted

Because say your house outside is:

|======|
|           |
|===|    |
       |==|

You don't want the inside house to be:

|=======|
|            |
|    |=|   |
|    |  |   |
|==|  |==|

Ya know? :P

(What a strange looking house.)

Oh dear, I've only come across this now. I would be happy to contribute musically and to the story writing(which by the looks of it is nearly done). I honestly don't think my mapping,eventing and scripting skills are anywhere near up to scratch.

And yeah, the backbone of the story is done, but there's a lot of details still being worked out.

Any style really. I took a look at the soundtrack listing and I think I might be able to write something to suit some of them. Has it been arranged as to who is doing each part of soundtrack?

Not yet, we just started brainstorming.  By all means, if you want to try and write a battle theme or corruption zone music or whatever, go for it, and post it up :)

As we're going to use RTP style sprites, I'm sure your skills would be very handy. Niche seems to be in charge of spriting, for the most part, so if you're looking for something that needs doing, he would probably be the one to contact, though pretty much anything you put together will probably be helpful.

I would love to help out with this. I can help mostly with database structure, story, eventing, and mapping. But I have the most fun creating thought out fights and messing with the battle system. I have been messing around with a couple (GibuD tactical battle system, melody engine, and of course Blizz ABS) and have came up with all kinds of stuff to incorporate.
