The project I am posting is for the creation of a Multi Mega Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG). I require a client/server environment so players can visit a webpage and play the game through a client, like a JAVA client. The server will do the processing for the game, store the accounts and generally run the game. The server needs to be able to add special options to accounts for example if I make a user a moderator in the game he should see moderator options etc etc. I will require a tool which I can edit the map of the game and generate new NPC(Non Playing Characters)/monsters for the game. An example of the graphical quality I would like is that of RuneScape ([url removed, login to view]). This description is a little vague as there is lots to do with the game creation and the in-depth details. Once you are sure that you are able to credte the MMORPG I will send a full specification which includes details of the actual Game and ingame. I require a test (Alpha version) of the game in under 30 days, this can be just a brief section of the Game landscape as an example of the quality of your work and the functionality. I require a fully functional Client/Server within 3 months from time of start. Due to the nature of this project additional support and development will be required. Please when posting your bids take this into consideration, The bid you place will be taken as a monthly figure for a period of 12 months. Hence if you bid £150 then you will be paid 12 x $150. If your bid is $400 then you will be paid 12 monthly pyments of $400. Depending on the success of the Game your contract may be extended further. Please only post if you are ready to make this project also please dont post your company details I only wish to know if you can and your thoughts.
