Fractured MMO

Fractured is an open-world fantasy sandbox MMORPG which blends action combat with fully interactive environments, appealing equally to lovers of competitive and cooperative gameplay. Jump right into the fray from day one. Defeat your enemies with skill and wit, not equipment or level. Gather resources, craft, trade and venture into legendary travels as a solitary hero, or start a settlement with your guild and grow it into the next empire. A true sandbox MMORPG, Fractured lets players pursue the gameplay they enjoy, create the type of character they enjoy, and focus on doing what they enjoy. 
Fractured Key Features
Unique And Dynamic Setting – Explore the universe of Fractured, which is spread across three planets – Arboreus, Syndesia, and Tartaros. Travel is an important part of the game experience; unlike many traditional MMORPGS, players must find a way to survive as they traverse the worlds. In addition, eclipses, unique PvE events, have a huge impact on the lives of demons and humans. The state of the universe, and even the position of planets, matters!
Race Is More Than Cosmetic – The race you belong to has an actual impact on game mechanics, from the type of society you live in to the ways you can interact with other players. Choose a human and live in – or at odds with – a feudal society. Be a beastman, and live in harmony with nature. Or, choose a demon, and slake your thirst for blood and revenge!
Crafting That Matters – Finding a broadsword in the corpse of a rat sounds a little unlikely? Forget about old RPG clichés and enter a world where every item is crafted by players. Exploit the uneven distribution of resources to get high profits when trading at faraway markets – but make sure you reach your destination alive!
Get Into The Action – You do not need to grind zombies for 80 hours or reach some level limit before you can join your friends on adventures. In Fractured, you can take part in any content from the first day in the game! The Knowledge system offers power and flexibility, allowing players to develop exactly the character they wish to play.
Action Combat Evolved – Fractured melds the combat style you’ve loved in single-player Action RPGs with a complex sandbox universe. Learn to aim, dodge and master over 400 abilities and 40 unique status effects: only your skills and tactics will lead you to victory! The environment is fully interactive, and can be used to give you an edge in your adventures.

Fractured - Crowdfunding Ending Sale

It’s time for Kickstarter-replica packs to say goodbye: alpha 1 access, lifetime VIP and limited offers will soon be gone!
On August 1, the Fractured store will be overhauled as follows:
*  Current pledge packs will be phased out and three founder packs will be added. The cost of access will be the same as current non-sale prices (€25 for Beta 2, €50 for Beta 1, €90 for Alpha 2), but the new packs will be less value-oriented (less Gold, VIP time, etc). Alpha 1 access won’t be available in the new store!
*  You’ll be able to buy Dynamight Gold…
*  and spend it on cosmetics (pets, housing decorations, skins, etc).
STATE OF THE STORE
For your convenience, here’s a recap of what’s left in the current, soon-to-be-gone store:
*  All the 2.5k and 5k packs are gone, aside from a single Warlord of Tartaros. Poor lonely pack, will it find a home?
*  All Aristocrat and Creator packs were also gone, but we’ve been contacted by some community members who really regretted not being able to grab one. Therefore, we’ve decided to add a few units of each for this last week!
*  Governor packs are over, but town-ownership offers might make it back to the new store one day.
TESTING WEEKENDS
If you have Alpha 1 access, you won’t have to wait for the start of Alpha 2 to play Fractured again: testing weekends are coming!
*  To be run in August and September, they’ll give you the chance to preview:
*  The Knowledge System. Yes, it’s finally coming!
*  Enchanting: fine tune your equipment to fit your character’s build.
*  New areas & creatures: Goblins Territories & Heartwood.
*  Carts for moving heavy materials: the most requested minor feature!
We’re soon going to detail all of the above in an upcoming proper road map post.  Once again, we’d like to remind you that Alpha 1 access won’t be purchasable in the new store. You want it, there are only a few days left to get it

Any PHP/Mysql programmers?

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I am looking for help (I'd even be willing to toss in some $ for the assistance) with getting a project I've been working on forever off the ground.

 

In EVE, many groups need working voice and forum software, but there are not many options out there.

 

COTP's EVE Chapter is a small group, but even we could use some of the items that I've been working on.

 

Here is a list of what I've been trying to accomplish.  I am not a programmer, just a guy with some ideas and a lot of time trying to find solutions....

 

Let me know if anyone is interested in helping!

I've been teaching myself php on and off (mostly off) for the last 6 months, and mysql from php.  I'll see what I can do.  If you need straight database/data architect stuff, that I can certainly do.

 

So, skill...sorta.

 

Time...very little, but I'll look.  Not sure where to look, though.  Simple machines is a forum app written in php?  I'm guessing I'll need to download the code and set it up locally.

I'd want to run it in a dev environment, so when I screw things up, I don't injure anyone.  My biggest concern day-1 is getting it configured to match your customizations.

 

I'll pull the code down to dropbox so I can read it while commuting.  But I need a better understanding of what/where/how/specifics the thing you want changed are, so I can do a better job reverse engineering the app.

 

Not today, though.  Must sleep.  PM me.

Hi,

 

This was mentioned in the leadership meeting.  I am willing to help if you want.  I am an application programmer, who also does a lot of PhP and mySQL work.  I've got a couple decades of pro experience, although I've been a programmer since I was twelve.  Not saying I can do what you want because I'm not familiar with XMPP or Openfire, but I can take a look at any detailed requirements you have.  I just started using SMF on my own game company site (gamer8games.com), so I have played with that.  I'll pop into the eve channel when I can and we can talk about it.  I've got a gig this afternoon, and a date with my wife tonight, so not today.

Meander,

 

I'm poking at the message/openfire one mostly out of curiosity.  If you've got the time to dedicate to real effort, I'll defer to you.  It would be silly to have two people doing the same thing independently.

 

My thinking on the messaging change is that it should be a handful of code lines in the right place, so right now I'm wetware debugging the SMF code to find that place.

 

I'm not planning on looking at the Mumble thing, as the word "authentication" makes it look much bigger than I have time for.

The SMF / XMPP Bridge was picked up by a guy out of no-where, he seemingly got it working (made a brand new smf plugin to boot).

 

The mumble auth. is still up in the air, but he might do that too.. ill report back in a day or 2.

 

I'll post the SMF / XMPP plugin soon once he declares its final.
