I’m coming to the group right here to humbly search recommendation on learn how to method the issues that I’m making an attempt to resolve. I’ve little or no programming data, however I’m keen to experiment and study.
Each potential tasks regard a web-based recreation that I’ve been enjoying known as Albion On-line. It’s a massively multiplayer on-line recreation with a pair hundred thousand lively gamers. The sport has a player-driven financial system, and gamers can equip totally different combos of things to attempt to create an optimum “construct.”
The difficulty is that the third-party, offline companies made for this recreation are severely missing, for my part. Two companies, particularly, I consider might be considerably improved and supply nice worth to the participant base.
Within the recreation, objects may be purchased and offered on the player-driven market. Every metropolis inside the recreation has its personal financial system, leading to differing costs at every metropolis. My objective can be to create an internet site the place one might simply browse/evaluate the costs of particular person objects on the totally different cities.
There’s a web site, “OSRS GE Tracker”, that gives an identical service for a special recreation known as Runescape. As you’ll be able to see, the web site tracks the entire costs of the objects within the player-driven financial system. One key distinction between Runescape and Albion is that Runescape has a single financial system, whereas Albion has totally different markets for every metropolis. Mainly, I want to construct the “GE Tracker” (above hyperlink) for Albion.
My second concept regards “participant builds,” that are principally combos of things that gamers might put on to obtain good fight stats in-game. As you might know, it’s widespread in multiplayer video video games to share “builds” on third get together web sites. An instance of 1 for the favored recreation “League of Legends” is known as Mobafire. Mainly, I want to make the “mobafire” for Albion.
There are presently web sites that exist to serve each of those features for the Albion group, however for my part, they’re insufficient, current outdated data, and are arduous to navigate (I cannot bore you all with the small print of why they’re missing). Thus, it’s my objective to convey extra user-friendly companies in these two areas to the Albion group. Intuitively, it appears as if the second concept (concerning builds) can be the better web site to create, as it could principally simply be consumer enter, whereas the primary concept would require knowledge assortment. I’m eager to study how I would have the ability to method each of those issues although.
Thus, I ask the group right here the next questions:
1. What programming languages can be greatest to work in so as to make a product that solves these points? Which digital setting ought to I obtain to take action?
2. What basic “varieties” of tasks are these/what are some key phrases that I might use to do extra analysis into how I might resolve these issues?
3. Wouldn’t it price any cash to implement these options?
4. How would you advocate structuring my method to those tasks?
5. Is there another recommendation, informations, or assets you can advocate?
Thanks prematurely for all your assist. I notice that it is a lot of textual content and so much to ask, so when you did learn this far alongside, I hope that this wasn’t a waste of your time! Any assist can be appreciated, and I might be grateful to take any conversations to non-public message if most well-liked.
