I think it's now impossible to get away with any crime committed over the internet. The trail is too easy to find.

NEXON might turn a blind eye to a severely low population private server of Baram that isn't for profit. They won't turn a blind eye if they find out it's for profit.

Well what do you think about this:

Buy the rights to the old graphics of nexus, program the game, release it as a browser MMO.

I think it's a dumb idea because the only reason anyone likes the old Nexus graphics is for a purely sentimental reason. The cost of licensing the graphics would not be worth it.

The old graphics are superior to the new ones; Chimese Wind.

Not sure how much I would donate at the moment, but you could do a system of voting on issues similar to that of how large companies do with stock holders. Depending on how much you donate or spend on the game would depend on how many votes you would have on major issues. Voting could be on everything including GM's and support staff.

Just an idea?

Dumb idea. The rich, elitest few that have their own ideas on how to run things would manage to monopolize such a system and thus would run nexus their way. The difference between donating and owning stock is that you have an invested interest in the company's success and are more likely to make choices more geared toward that success... instead of choosing what you and your small clique want.

Why would anyone invest anything in this game? It's a fossil! There are so many options out there today that even if this game went f2p, it would be no better off.

This game was magical once. But now it's like an old, old thing begging to be taken off of life support.

Why can't you guys just let it go?

That's like saying people play farmville for the graphics. People don't play nexus for the graphics.

The difference is that the makers of Farmville did not pay a quarter of a million dollars for those graphics.

I don't think the old nexustk graphics would cost 250k.

Licensing generic sound and music libraries can cost that much. What do you think licensing a library of graphics from another game is gonna cost?

Just because licensing costs for extremely professional sounds and graphics CAN cost a certain amount, doesn't mean that the final price would be anything remotely close to that for a 10+ year old game. I've heard varying estimates for licensing fees in the past from people with at least some knowledge of it, and I don't think I have ever heard any number breaking $100,000 (or close at all to that) even at its height. Now we are in a down economy and the game is only that much older.

For the record I could also be totally wrong since I cannot verify those numbers whatsoever, but even then I think some of the numbers being thrown around are grossly inflated based on my own research and discussions with companies for licensing costs for engines, graphics, sounds, etc. back when I was trying to get funding for the game Airadine and I were designing.

So far, based on the poll, if all 35 people donated what they claimed they would, $4,440 could be raised.

BigWorldIndie Source is $2,999

Food for thought.

Big World Indie. I mentioned it on the previous page. It's a turnkey MMORPG engine, client and server. Uses 3D Studio Max for creating the graphical assets, the client is Python and the server source code is C++.

Buying that would be a much better route to take.
You'd be much less constrained in what you could and could not do. The only drawback in my eyes, is the need for 3DS Max. As far as I'm concerned, that's a negative. However, most games use 3DS Max, so it's generally unavoidable.

Yeah, 3D Studio Max is pretty much the standard, and it's expensive software. However, anyone who knows how to use it has access to it. You're not going to find 3DS Max artists who don't have a copy already. There is a student copy for like $200
I think, and while you're not supposed to use it for commercial projects.....anyway, I plan to take a class in it next semester, although to be honest, looking at video tutorials I could probably teach myself.

I would pay $0 for ownership of a game that isn't Nexus that I could never make a profit on.

I would pay $0 for any version of Nexus, regardless of whether or not I could make a profit on it.
I lost my desire to fix other people's completely broken rubbish, and show them how it should have been run. Long ago.
