Nearly 25 years ago I started Medievia. Hundreds of thousands of lines of code later I
would say that I am half way to where I want to go. The thing about Medievia
is, it will never be done. It will never be good enough. I love it. I
remember my todo list in 1992. Ansi color, Bulletin Board, Post office.... I
had a vision of this world that was virtually too large to explore: Clans
owning land and having clan wars, one thousand players online at night. I
must say, we have come a long way. Every year brings new challenges yet
every year we seem to work harder and have more fun. Success is a good thing
for the spirit and the spirit of Medievia has never been higher! The
development team of Medievia has grown with the game and what we are capable
of now is limited only by our ideas and imagination.
What will Medievia V be like?
Medievia V is being designed to handle multiple planets on multiple servers. This
will allow millions of players to play the game at the same time. Clans can have clanships
which they can use to journey to other lands, trade, and attack. Clans can have space ships to trade through space.
The new MobFaction, HoloDetail, HoloMob, and HoloRoomAction modules will allow the following:
Mob factions and races that unite and battle each other for control of
land and zones. These mobs will possibly surround a zone and be very
aggressive. Mob factions and certain races will be natural enemies that when
they cross land ownership, battle it out in huge 100 room wide battle
fronts. These fronts will be visible via Storm elementals(weather command),
when flying over them and when walking near them. Clans will be able to side
with or against every race and faction. Clan points can be had by fighting
in a front with the mobs you have united with.
"BUT WAIT! That sounds interesting and sounds like a very challenging
module, but, what will it mean to me?"
I am glad you asked! Imagine someone telling you that a very LARGE group of
demons landed on the east coast and have been heading straight for the City
of Medievia. They have not been stopped by any other mob faction or race and
are growing in numbers. They should reach Medievia tommorrow.
There is a rumor a few clans are actually helping them. What to do! Unite
and defeat this menace? Let them take over the city for a few weeks? Can the
players of Medievia unite to a common cause? What about the dammed trolls
that have taken over tear for the last month? A few months ago the fairies
almost became annihilated as they finally destroyed their arch enemy the
legion of vampires. Medievia 4.0 was just the building blocks towards a
living breathing world in which the players participate and live in. We have
our own time line, it is year 546 in Medievia. What will your character do
in the upcoming years to affect Medievia? What will your clan do? Medievia
is its players, all future versions will support that.
And of course plenty of smaller changes. I dare say the Medievia code is
actually different in one way or another every day of every year, forever.
Long live Medievia! Our goal is 50 million players online during prime time. Tell
your friends what they are missing! Medievia needs them and they need Medievia!
