    I was thinking, I really like ORPG's and I really like LoaP's, so does anyone think it's a good idea to make a LoaP/ORPG map? I've started an ORPG, but it's not too late to make it a Loap/ORPG yet. Thanks for the feedback.

    @Blizard Of Oz : What can a terrain do without a good gameplay? Nothing. I got a beautiful terrain, but a very bad gameplay. Will it make a good map? No.

    Back to topic : Hmm, I feel like it's a bad idea. LoaP is already a RPG, you know. It just doesn't have a save/load system. And it will be really hard to make all the buildings built, units, etc on the save/load.

    I think he meant you can set up a character and job and what not. But you can load all that. Also making it with the classic RPG elements.

    Not so awesome and not so original. There are LoaP Maps with heavy RPG elements already.

    Fantasy Life is not a LOAP version. Fantasy Life is an RPG with no save/load that gets boring after getting best items while you are a slayer.

    I agree with everyone else, bad place to post the word "LoAP" everyone here including me basically hates the map and postings of it.

    Not really hate, but it just became old-fashioned.

    @Herian
    Dont get me wrong I know gameplay is important. I'm merely pointing out that two thirds of all loap maps use the same terrain. Also, visual appeal must always be avaliable. So I agreefully disagree and I think you were looking at my post the wrong way.

    Also, I agree, when I said it was pretty good idea, I meant it had potential. But its going to take alot to make this game enjoyable. It's gotta have new features, and upgraded versions of the other games. Lots of systems and junk. So going forward, either work on it so much that your so proud of it and whatever, or just don't.

    Perhaps I'll give you a few pointers or ideas if you are really planning on working on this really really hard.
