Ok, I think I got it sorted out. Thanks for the links.
Yes, I concur, we should start with the original game.
We should write down the additional features we want to implement before starting.
I don't know if isometric is a good thing since we couldn't use the original graphics (or re-drawings of them).
Also I don't think DA is the best place to discuss this and have it for a good read later - I think I'll set up a website for this, what do you think?
Maybe we 'need' a better artist - right now we only have you and I like it. If you find someone better who wants to help its okay. You know - changing graphics later on is not the problem if the program is working. But I need some high-res graphics to start with and yours are perfect for this need. Yes, cities are not easy, I know.
You will get it.
I don't think I can find the original cast since all their links are broken or down. If you find some email adresses or something I have no problems contacting them. I doubt that they can GIVE us allowance to use their graphics since they sold it via a publisher which is bankrupt right now. But that doesnt mean that the rights are free - understand? Its really important to use own graphics.
So. I propose this deal:
You will finish the Urga picture as said. Then the map-tiles for snow, track (just one direction is ok), city and the big picture of a trade-city aswell as the picture for the transarctica-engine. Also we need some goods.
I will start setting up a website and program the first tech demo of this. (horizon1). We can add other people and graphics and sound on the go.
What do you think?
