Yeah, community is pretty cool. But I'd love to see the game that's the reason we're here in the first place :P
Will this mean that we can be a non-jagex site? So I won't get my post removed because they're against jagex's ToS? :P


I think that the general idea is that we'll be moving away from Jagex and concentrating on games in General. Focusing on a non-existent game is just not sustainable anymore.


That seems like a nice idea.

We kind of already are a gaming website. The "Other Games" is much more popular than SD + Runescape combined. It's been a great place to meet up with people who play similar games and play together.

Good point. Every time I visit the website I usually just check Other Games and Off-topic. However I'm not sure a smallish website would be able to make such a drastic move to general gaming and end up growing. Since Stellar dawn is effectively "Paused", it will need new users to join the site and contribute. (because nobody is going to come here looking for the mythical stellar dawn/mechscape mmo anymore)

I think the potential is there for this site to grow. If most of the people who are currently on this site move to the new one (Which I imagine happening without problem) we'll already have a decent if only small community. I think if anything, Stellar Dawn was holding us back from growing. Sure, some people came here looking for Stellar Dawn but if our horizons expanded, more people would come here looking for a good community focused around gaming.

The name of the game here, I think, is offering something other sites don't offer. I have some ideas on that, but I'm sure the staff is already leagues ahead of me in that regard.

Someone with tech skills on these forums should just actually build the game for them.



I hope your not serious. It is one thing to run a website and another to build a MMO.

A conservative estimate for the bare necessities to make an MMORPG is around 20 experienced people and $1.5 million dollars.

With 1.5million I would retire early and just post stupid videos on Youtube for a living.

I think making a spoof 2D flash game would be cool. Salmonella Dawn? Stellar Shaun? The possibilities are endless.

Stellar Shaun would follow the story of an intrepid young human explorer in the far flung reaches of space. His ship breaks down, he sits around scratching his ass for six years then decides to hang himself.

You mean a good MMORPG, right? I'm sure somebody drunk off his ass with a bit of coding knowledge can make an MMORPG. Infact, I've seen it done, just ask Melook about HC.

No.

Writing a server that can support 2000+ concurrent people is a monumental task in and of itself, thus; a person drunk off his ass with a bit of coding knowledge could try, but they'd never qualify for the "massively" part of MMORPG.

Speaking of SDC turning towards games in general... This already is my go-to site for general gaming news, because so many people in the community are constantly updating threads with new information, creating new threads about new and interesting/upcoming games, and the off-topic section always has interesting worldly news to read.

I have an urge to pull out a Duke Nukem Forever joke, but I feel that joke doesn't work anymore. :confused:
I could have a shot at saying something about Half Life 2 : Episode 3, but I fear that making a joke about that or Gabe Newell will delay that game even more.
