Building Projects

Post by Harroghty » Wed Mar 09, 2011 1:11 am

Forgotten Kingdoms provides you the unique opportunity to volunteer to help build the game world that you are involved in. Still, there are priorities of work and so this sticky will provide guidance on what is currently needed and what the parameters for new projects will be. We are only accepting applications to build areas that suit these needs. Our current building needs are...
  • -updated starter areas and new newbie quests nearby them
    -new or revised guilds
    -quest areas (target audience is good and evil, any level)
    -builders willing to finish abandoned areas stalled on the test-port
    -builders willing to spruce up older areas on the game-port
  • Limited to 50 VNUMs (50 rooms, 50 mobiles, 50 items).
    n.b. New builders are no longer required to build off-line
    but it is encouraged for those who wish to learn the system.
    Builders beginning on-line will omit steps four through six.

  • 1-Submit an application requesting to build
    2-Receive access to Builder Council Forums.
    3-Post in "Areas Under Construction".
    4-Build your area off-line using a text editor like MS Notepad.
    5-Submit your product for review to the Area Admins.
    6-Make Corrections.
    7-Receive access to the test port.
    8-Post your area to the test port and complete it.
    9-Submit your area for final review by the Area Admins.
    10-Once approved, your area will be posted to the game port.
    11-Create a help file for your area and submit it to Area Admins.
