I would like to brain storm and work with people to recreate Skyrim in its relative entirety(omitting some parts that are deemed unnecessary, and allowing for creative freedom). I think it would be a great project to start with when the game launches, and when multiplayer hits, it could be worked on by a team from the community.The team would be comprised of five or more divisions:
1.) The overseer team would be responsible for directing and orchestrating the other teams to makes sure everything flows
smoothly, both figuratively and literally. The would make creative decisions, possibly based on suggestions from players
and/or teams working on the project, as well as hold votes to determine the best course of action when there is no clear
answer. They would delegate tasks for each team as needed (i.e. Layout and construct 'Riverwood'). For each assignment,
they would make each team aware of what teams the project involves at the time and encourage communication between
2.) The landscape team would be responsible for moderately measuring out land formations found in Skyrim, building them in
Total Miner, creating layouts for the buildings in the area of the active project to provide to the architecture team, and
adding detail (such as foliage, ambient sound that matches the surroundings.
3.) The architecture team would be responsible for replicating the buildings and various structures found in Skyrim with
appropriate dimensions, decorating inside and outside of structures, and adding man mad details. They would use the base
buildings they created to past them into the plots laid out by the landscape team, then proceed to decorated them as
accurately as possible within reasonable amounts of time (i.e. dont spend 5 days IRL on a carriage.)
4.) The logic team would be responsible for creating and applying both template and applied scripts and behaviors in the world.
This includes dialogue, quest mechanics, and any features that get added that require some behind the scenes magic. They
would also be responsible for creating particle effects for the world, ambient or otherwise. This team would work heavily
with the lore team to provide a strong questing experience.
5.) The lore team would be dedicated to gathering data from quests, such as dialogue and rewards, as well as read through and
record the books from Skyrim into the game. They would be expected to try every possible dialogue option. (Some
dialogue may be left out). They would also record general events in the game as a group, and work with the logic team to
try to recreate them. This includes absorbing souls and events such as getting called to High Hrothgar by the Greybeards.
The teams would have appointed leaders, whom would receive their tasks (such as "Build and decorate 'Riverwood'") from the overseer team. The leaders of each team would then delegate 'subtasks' to their team members. The overseers would assist with difficult tasks when requested, as well as contribute as they deem is necessary.
I am always open to suggestions on this idea, as well as offers to help on the project in any way. My hope is that this can become a community project for people to demonstrate their skills within the game, as well as showcase what Total Miner is capable of. I also hope that this project will strengthen the support for the game and bring in new players to experience the hard work of the community and the game's contributors.
If anyone is interested in helping with the project, join the team discord for further information. The discord server is still a WIP, but will soon have an information bulletin to better direct people when I'm not available.
