I don’t want to offend you, but did you thought this through well? There are dozens of peoples like you who build new PW and for what?
Why don’t you join some existing PW team instead of struggling making whole PW alone?
I can tell you from my experiences that you won’t succeed doing good PW alone. Your PW will most likely become just another 0-1 players online PW in already huge list of PWs.
Please rethink whether:
- there isn’t already a PW that offers what you want to offer
- if not, if there is at least something close to it - often if you become part of the dev team you can change stuff for your liking if the leader accepts your ideas (I know I do…)
- even if there is nothing close to what you want to do, try to ask yourself why is that, maybe the concept isn’t going to work at all?
- even if you think the concept is not a problem, do you really think you can create whole PW just by yourself, especially when you lack in probably the most important area of expertise? (I know I couldn’t…)
Honestly, if everyone wouldn’t be like “duh I am gonna make my own PW because I want it to be mine”, we all would have profit. But it is how it is and everybody is trying to find a scripter, area-designer, art maker and all of them are making their own PW thus not working with and helping others because they are each other competition or because they spend all their limited time on their PW creation.
Making a successful PW does not only require a great idea or finding the gap on the “market”, but awful lot of time and person’s absolute dedication. Are you sure you have what it takes? I’ve helped so many guys already and they all quit in a middle of that process or when they didn’t get the attention from players, that they expected. Please don’t be like them.
Also, typically if you want to get help, then it is good idea to specify what is your PW about - most peoples are not going to help you with something they would never played at. Well I mean the help of the extent you ask for, there are many good peoples in NWN community which will help you with directions of how to do it, or to fix your script when it is not working.
Either way, I am willing to trade scripting for 2D art (item icons) and custom visual effects. If there is anyone who can and is willing to make such content and does not see my PW (Arkhalia) as a competition.
