    Aura: A Garry's Mod Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game.

    Aura is a gamemode for the Half-Life 2 modification, Garry's Mod. It is a medieval/fantasy MORPG that will include many familiar features of the RPG genre, such as: leveling, hunting, questing, and player versus player combat.

    Our current team consists of:

    - Kruma: Project Lead/Mapper
    - Bekka: Coder
    - Zuntti: Terrain Artist
    - Fabled Pilgrim: Composer
    - BrettJay: Website Designer
    - Pattern of Games: Sound Effects Artist


    We are seeking the following (in order of most needed first to least needed):

    - Organic 3D Modeler:
    - Capable of creating high-quality organic models, such as characters or foliage.

    - Inorganic 3D Modeler:
    - Capable of creating high-quality inorganic models, such as weapons, armors, and miscellaneous props.

    - Texture Artist:
    - Capable of creating high-quality textures, such as model reskins, and standard 512x512 (power of 2) environmental textures to be used in maps.

    - Graphics Artist:
    - Capable of creating high-quality graphics such as HUD and UI.

    - Concept Artist:
    - Capable of creating high-quality illustrations, such as concepts of characters, models, or environments within the gamemode.

    Unfortunately at this time, all members are not being paid, as the entire team consists of mostly students working on a volunteer basis, under the premise that there is a high chance of generating a shared revenue upon completion.

    Anyone willing/interested in helping out with this project, please respond to this thread, private message me, or add me on Steam:

    This is like your 5th MMORPG attempt in garrysmod now, cruma.
    I hope this one won't end up like the others.

    And that map is real nice, I like the grass.

    Is it possible you release your particle editor seperate to the public? A lot of people including myself would find it extremely useful.

    [RELEASE]
    Aura Update 001:

    Media:

    The past few days our coder, Bekka, has been working on some updates and managed to complete the first legitimate version of our custom particle editor:




    A developmental video that will showcase how it works and all of its features is to be released soon.


    Early progress has also begun on one of our planned dungeon hunting zones:








    Q & A:

    Did you teleport to a diffrent location for the dungeon?
    Indeed, dungeon and cave hunting zones are detached from the mainland and reside elsewhere in the deep, black void of the Hammer Editor.


    Is it possible you release your particle editor seperate to the public? A lot of people including myself would find it extremely useful.
    Our main concern is to keep our focus on Aura and to complete it, so at this time there are no plans to release any of our work for public use. Perhaps sometime after initial release, we will discuss plans to create a public version of our editor.




    Thanks to all of the others who responded with words of praise. Be sure to check up on this thread for future updates and feel free to ask any questions that you would like to have answered.

    That looks awesome, I would suggest making more than one island tho, so for instance when you get so far into the game there should be an option for the next tier up in caves and island to go to.

    A lot of these MMO coders have really good ideas, but they should try making them outside of Garry's Mod, that way they can make real mmos :).

    just saying, but this looks really cool.

    Btw I highly highly recommend you use cross-server maps to give it a lot of immersion, and performance too i suppose

    Thank god you said multiplayer!
    I thought this would be a single player RPG!

    Serious time now, apart from the "MORPG" that annoys me slightly it looks good.

    Well...damn. That dungeon zone looks like something out of a 2003 RPG game.

    Like Oblivion-type stuff. Well done.
