I'm wondering if anyone is interested in playing a Stargate text-based online ?
I've been wondering about making a real world politics game online, but recently I think a Stargate game would attract more reliable players as most players are into the concept itself instead of bombing the **** out of everyone and destroying all built-in diplomatic models.
What idea do I have ?
Every player own it's own planet in a galaxy with it's own coördinates and starts with the choice between various races (human, humanlike races, asgard, goa'uld and some more new ones) and various technologies. They also start out with 3 other gate coördinates and can explore the universe to other planets with various life forms and conditions.
Some worlds will posess secret without inhabited life forms, and those secrets might be technologies, gate coördinates tablets or hostile activities.
The goal of the game is to maintain diplomatic relations, grow stronger, maybe even conquer some worlds and set off-world bases to create a real Stargate feel to the game.
No forum will be installed, you'll only be able to contact the people of the planets you know by PM, and every world has it's message board where discussions and negotiations can take place.
Ofcourse, this is only an idea so far, but before I start building the basics (set up the database for many world with different coördinates and conditions, add new races and languages) I'll have to know if people over here would be interested in seeing such a game. Also, if someone knows quite a bit about PHP, pixelart (visuals for races, gods and icons), MySQL or so and would be interested to set something up, I'd like to know. It's a bit too much to do by myself perhaps, and I think it would really be worth it
