A question
« on: December 05, 2011, 08:44:36 am »

Hello,

just asking if FIFE is an appropriate engine for my game plan. I have prior experience in a few programming languages (including Python). I'm no master coder, but I can do just fine I guess.

What I want to create is an MMO Sandbox RPG with 2d Isometric view. I mostly found FIFE because it seems it supports rpg and isometric view. To be honest, haven't found any other (free) engines that would enable me that.

So the question is simple, would FIFE be appropriate to develop my type of game on?

Thanks in advance

Hello and welcome to the FIFE community!

As for your questions I believe FIFE would provide a solid foundation for your type of game. It can certainly handle the 2d isometric RPG aspects. The MMO side including: networking, server/client, synchronization between clients, instancing, persistence, etc. will all have to be things you code yourself as FIFE does not provide direct support for these. Also a sandbox type of game requires a lot of user control and flexibility from your game so that will be something to keep in mind. FIFE itself is fairly modular so it should be able to handle a sandbox style. Performance could be an issue with really large levels with lots of data, but if you are smart about how you organize the data it should not be a problem.

Good luck and we hope you keep us informed of your progress.
