一世在过去的那篇上写了无穷无尽的话语,但有时候你只需要一个作弊表。特别是这些日子,当不是社区专业人士的人发现自己在商业必需品的前线或只是因为社交媒体的性质。所以这里只是一个快速的建议,为那些发现自己与他们的用户社区成员发言的人来说。

Always be honest.Honesty and straightforwardness buys goodwill for when you screw up. Lies buy ill will. And screw upswill发生。

什么驱动器保留

在100%和10%的潮流之间的活性用户的差异显示出较低的流失率下的曲线下的巨大增加。

For better or worse, much of the games market is moving to games-as-a-service. Once upon a time, this was known as the MMO business model, because all MMOs were games-as-a-service, and virtually nothing else was.

Obviously, a lot of GaaS games won’t be MMOs.Candy Crush Sagais a service, but it’s not an MMO. Nor does GaaS mean the game has to be free to play with upsells via microtransactions.GaaS is abusiness strategy那and F2P is a收入模型

一世n the past we’ve seen services of all sorts drive revenue in lots of ways:

  • 免费采样让您在门口,由其他收入流支持,例如其他支付成员补贴免费用户或广告
  • 点菜产品,让您在没有持续承诺的情况下达到服务
  • 定期升级优惠将您从那些免费的付款带到那些免费的付款
  • 订阅层 - 低基本产品和一些富于特定演示的更丰富的产品,其保留了为特定功能提供单点的能力
  • 个人一个off upsels,用于子层从未覆盖的特殊事件

一世n fact, cable companies and phone service both do just aboutallof the above at once. So there’s lots of ways to make money, if you have a service, and arguably, mature service businesses use as many of them as they can.

但在它下面都是一个不可避免的基础事实。

Hello Mr. Koster! I have a school project that requires the input of an expert like yourself. I know you usually don’t reply to students, but hopefully you’ll reply to me. I am currently working on the concept for a open-world MMO and wondering if you can help me out. I know your major works are星球大战星系和Ultima系列,但我的游戏仍然是一个mmo。这更像是DC Universe Online。Basically, I’d just like to know what major things should be included in MMos and Open-World games. Do you have any knowledge that might help?

一世spent about an hour doing a quickie list off the top of my head. It’s not exhaustive, just stuff that occurred to me as I ran down a mental checklist. I know it’s not exhaustive because in past years when I’ve done similar outlines (which I can’t lay hands on now) they were twice as long.

但也许这将是有帮助的,并传达某种感觉令人担忧的范围。重要说明:我甚至没有到达客户端的东西。这只是游戏服务器端的东西。

You might want to look at非资格的选美那a book I started and never finished on MMO design, and of course Dr Richard Bartle’sDesigning Virtual Worlds[联盟链接]对受试者有一种详尽的材料。

P.Sam Yeates的Micael Priest Ortrait

真的分解了这个消息Micael牧师过世了。这样一个甜蜜的男人,如此荒谬的才华横溢,完全是一个褪色的奥斯汀的象征。

He did the early art — like, most of it in the early days before we had an art team — for Ultima Online. He was a famed poster artist for Armadillo World Headquarters, rendering inked versions of Zappa and Willie Nelson and countless others in a detailed, hatched and stippled, bold cartoon style.

他是Cordblind - 我还记得他感谢我们让他知道他通过意外地为UO做了绿色的人。一世remember when he defended us during the run up to alpha, when Richard came to complain about the artwork in the game that Kristen and I had put in as placeholders until we got the real work, and Micael said “it’s not programmer art… it’s designer art! So it’s better!” I also remember walking into his office one day and being surprised by the presence of Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul, and Mary fame); I fled in the presence of one of my heroes, and he told me after, “you should have stayed, I’d have introduced you!”

一世thought of him often, but we had lost touch, because I am lousy at staying in touch with people. He wasn’t active online, and these days notifications are what passes for friendships. During UO crunch we all lived in each other’s pockets for months on end, and then… distance, and time.

很难想象这样一个重要的存在消失了,但他留下了如此多的工作,如奥斯汀文化的邮票。甚至有一个Micael祭司,很久以前宣布了市长宣布。

今天也来了这个消息Threadgill的世界总部正在关闭;Micael’s art hangs all over the walls. Everything becomes ephemera, I suppose, to be auctioned off. We are left with the memories of smiles and warmth, of talent, and the unmistakable twinkle in his eyes.

一世已经发布了上个月我交付的两次谈判。抱歉延迟,但我在第一次活动时抓到了一些东西,只有在......现在只摇动它,相信它与否。四周的间歇性发烧,强烈咳嗽,并且一般感觉无法做任何事情。

One, entitled“桌面游戏语法,”是一个谈论就职人知桌面网络事件,一个游戏设计yabo亚博H5会议为中心的性能指标lly on tabletop games. It was held at the lovely Snowbird ski resort, at a high elevation (we went up to the peak after the event, it was around 11,000ft high). This talk is centered on applications of game grammar to boardgame design, including a working through of how the addition of new resources creates the different variants of poker.Continue reading »
