[ORRR3] One Room Round Robin 3 - Pre-Discussion!

Post by JohnWordsworth » Sun Oct 19, 2014 1:09 am

The ORRR was started by the legendary SpiderFighter with the One Room Round Robin 1 dungeon and taken to new heights by Diarmuid with the One Room Round Robin 2. With the launch of LOG2 I thought it a good time to start up a chat about what the ORRR3 might look like!

For those unfamiliar with the idea - the One Room Round Robin dungeons bring together modders new and old to create a fun and exciting dungeon. The core premise is that every designer gets a limited amount of space, so taking part is accessible to everyone - even if you've never modded before! A few of us have been chatting on Skype, and a very rough early idea is presented below...
  • Before we start, someone will sketch out a basic map with a couple of over-ground areas and a few underground areas. It will be split into rooms which can be claimed on a 'first come first served' basis.
  • As a rough starting point - the map could have around 2 out-door 'floors' split into zones about 14x14 squares big (and potentially 2 floors high in areas). Then there could be around 10-15 in-door areas (sticking with the classic 9x9x3 area) that will make up a couple of dungeons / other areas.
  • There's interest in having a loose, overall plot - so while you would be free to do what you like with your room, each area will have a theme and we might ask you to place an item in your room somewhere etc.
  • Apart from a definite start and end - the idea is to keep the world as open as possible. So most rooms in the middle area can be visited at any time!
  • In keeping with the previous ORRRs - there will likely be a deadline of 'a few days to a week' for each room. So that it actually gets finished! But you can obviously prototype your room before it's your turn with the Dungeon file.
That's about it really. Nothing is set in stone (nobody has committed to actually running it either). So, if you're interested - just say hello! If you've got ideas for the overall plot or things we could do in the mod, just post below. :)

Any and all ideas welcome. If you've never modded before, please don't worry! There are many friendly people to help you make your dream and doing just a single room is as much work as you want it to be (big or small!).

I never took part in this, only played the first one (and liked it). I'd like to participate if you start a new one for LoG 2 (and now that I have my new hardware and LoG runs buttery smooth I look even more forward to modding it!).

Cool to hear that you've got your new PC Phitt! Even more cool to hear that you're interested in joining in with the ORRR3 :). Can't wait to see what sort of things you will be able to cook up in the LOG2 engine!

I hope number 3 turns out just as fantastic as number 2.

Yes, I would like to join in, too.Have already a funny idea for a room.

BTW: How will we sort out, if someone has to do an inside- or an outsidepart? Just by asking? First come?

I want to do an inside-room. My ideas wouldn't work outside.
