What?


#78

I will write in spanish excuse me if someone don’ t understand me.
Eso son muchas cosas para poner en un solo mod, seria que diferentes personas cojieran ideas i las separan.
Lo de personalizacion de componentes de pc ya hay un mod que lo permite me parece.


#79

I know it’s been mentioned a few times, but I’d like to +1 a multi-topic mod. It would function and appear a lot like the vanilla multi-platform tech, but maybe order of topic wouldn’t matter. I’m not sure how it would work in terms of math. If you average the weights naively you would end up with weird doubles like 0.85, and I’m not sure that GDT is okay with that.


#80

Some people worked in multi-topic mod and (i don’t remember who) give me his work in this idea but to develop this mod require a deep look in the score calculation function and modification it which is a hard work if want to do correctly.


#81

@DzjengisKhan is working very hard in making this a reality. [REL] Expansion Pack for Game Dev Tycoon


#82

My idea it is to create the operating system for computer or mobile, or console.
Example: create a OS for mobile as Android, iOS, Windows Phone


#83

Although I had to put this post in Google Translate to have a chance of understanding it, it appears that you want to be able to participate in other fields of business in Game Dev Tycoon? I’m really not trying to be mean, but…it’s called Game Dev Tycoon for a reason.

I can understand creating custom consoles(a feature already in the game), and although custom PCs and mobile phones are pushing it, I can understand that too. But cameras? Hard drives? There’s probably already a game to simulate that kind of stuff…and if there isn’t, then someone will probably make one eventually. Just know that it probably won’t be in the form of a mod for GDT.


#84

you have Action, Adventure, RPG, Simulation, Stragegy, and Casual.
Where’s Platformer? That’s the main one Nintendo and the early gaming thrived on was Platformer, it should be added.

Ideas for Game Dev Tycoon DLC / Overhaul

Plot
You start off doing games alone in your garage, and after quite some time, two of your gaming childhood friends from the neighborhood comes over and asks if they can join with you in developing games 'cause making games was their dream too. You can decline if you want to continue on with the vanilla campaign, but if you agree, the whole campaign is changed.

One of your friends said that you’re going to need a bigger place if you three were to develop a game together, so you move at his dad’s old computer shop. After a few weeks, his dad came over to see how you develop games. After finishing a game, his dad will make comments [give you hints] and tell you about a professional way of developing games.

  1. If you choose “I want to learn more” then you’ll be the first company to ever develop games in a new professional way and gain alot more fan, admiration, and if that game was a big hit, sponsorships.
  2. If you choose “I want to do this on my own” then you’ll continue developing games, until the news reports about a new professional way of developing games. There will be alot of competition, and game reviewers will be more strict on rating games.

Little did you know his dad was a professional programming engineer and computer scientist, and was one of the lead of revolutionizing technology and game developments. Either way, this will change the entire course of your career.


Game Elements
After you’ve learned about the more “professional” way of developing games, development stages have become different. Dad suggests that you assign each person to a specific branch. Luckily, there were 3 Branches and there were 3 persons in your team. You assign each one of them by

  1. Assigning what branch they want to be - they’ll be a lot faster in increasing their skills if you did this
  2. Assigning them on your own - they’ll turn to be great leaders in that certain branch if you did this

The way on how games are develop has been revolutionized, each development stages have been replaced by branches, and each of these branches are made at the same time with other branches, unlike the development stages. There are 3 Main Branches:

  • Technology Branch
  • Game Programming Branch
  • Design Branch

Each branch have their own key elements, and each of them have 3 components.

Technology Branch

  • System Design - Engine, Physics, Mechanics
  • User Interface - GUI, HUD, HCI
  • Tech Programming - A.I., I/O, Computer Language

Game Programming Branch

  • Screenplay Writing - Dialogues, Roleplay, Story/Quests
  • Game Design - Gameplay, World Design, Level Design
  • Script Programming - Software, Application, Programming Language

Design Branch

  • Contents - elements, composition, presentation
  • Visuals - art, visual effects, graphics
  • Audio - music, speech, sound effects

If you chose to let your friends in, at the start of the game, you can only adjust the elements of each branch, which will be prioritized or whatnot.

If you chose to refuse your friends, at the start of the game, you can only adjust the branch itself, which will be prioritized or whatnot

As the game progress, as you get more members/recruit, and as you upgrade your office, only then can you adjust the components of each element of each branch. If you have reached this point of your career, only then will the game reviewers will become strict. This will make the game more challenging. But if you manage to succeed, then you will topple all your competitors, and attract companies doing everything they can to put you down.


Game Competitors

In the vanilla game, the major competitors were Ninvento, Vony, Micronoft, and Grapple. In this DLC, more presence are given towards Publishing Companies, and new competitor - Toggle.

There will also be major companies and publishers such as Ubicroft, Early Access Games, and Gonami. You can offer them Cr. in order to try to buy them out. If you do, they will provide financial support to you as long as they’re in your cape of influence. But be warned, if the publisher gets more famous than your company, they might overthrow you, making it a mistake of having them in your cape of influence.


Game Departments
In the vanilla game, there were only two departments/lab: Hardware and R&D. In this DLC, there will be new departments, companies, and upgrades to the already-existing labs. Doing projects can be done at the same time as long as you keep investing and expanding your labs. Maximum four projects at a time.

Hardware Lab

  1. Develop Consoles
  2. Develop Computers
  3. Develop Hardwares

The Hardware Lab will be upgraded, making it the Tech Lab, and it allows you to:

  1. Develop Gadgets
  2. Develop Components
  3. Develop Systems

Development Lab: (early stage)

  1. Research
  2. Management
  3. Projects

The Development Lab will be upgraded, making it the R&D Lab, and it allows you to:
The R&D Lab will be split into three: the actual R&D Lab, DRM, and Publishing Companies.

  1. Production
  2. Contracts
  3. Industry

The DRM allows you to:

  1. License your game, game engines, and hardwares.
  2. Agreements and Authentications towards games, gamers, or other companies
  3. Anti-Piracy and Code: Grid, etc.
  4. Buy other competitors

The Publishing Company allows you to:

  1. Make Publishing Deals yourself
  2. Manufacturing
  3. Advertising and Marketing, etc.
  4. Buy other publishing companies

All of this will eventually be unlocked as you progress through the game, recruit more members for your team, and upgrade your office.


Game Stages

In the vanilla game, stages are separated by moving/upgrading your office. In this DLC, stages are separated by gaining more fans, credits, and most importantly, members.

Stage 1

At the beginning of the game, you start off with three members - you, and your two childhood friends. You are to assign their roles and plan out how you’re going to develop games. Once in a while, dad visits and tells you some hints and tricks in developing games. Rise of Godovore and Venna

Stage 5 (bonus stage)

You were the most successful industry in the whole world, you managed to buy Vony, Micronoft, and even Toggle, and all other publishing companies. Many recent companies are starting to rise and the whole world is now depending on you for technological innovations. Everything is now up to you.

And that’s it for my ideas for Game Dev Tycoon DLC. If someone made this into reality, then that someone is a GOD.
ps. Game Dev Tycoon - I cannot wait for the sequel! 11/10 Nuff said.

EDIT: Sorted ideas into specific mod(s) based on their similarity.


Employees and Character Creation Mod

  • Recruiting more Employees
  • Rename your employees
  • Be able to customize employees like in the character creation
  • More options in the character creation

Industry Mod

  • New Office/Workplace after End Game.
  • Buy other companies and control them manually yourself
    (or just go automatic, but you can still see the actual company making a game, doing something and you can change it, like what you do with your own company)
  • Being able to choose how you want to start your company/industry.
    (for e.g. Develop Games and Develop Consoles / Develop Games and Develop Computers / Develop Computers and Develop Hardwares / Develop Games and Publish Games, etc.)
  • New Departments
    (owning or buying your own Publishing Companies / Platform Developers, etc.)

Game Dev UI
[Optional] Makes days the regular time measurement instead of weeks.
Sales are given each half of a week (scaled)
Adds a mini bar in the corner of your screen that allows you to:

  • Adjust Game Speed into hours, days, and weeks using media controls.
  • Manually pause the game without clicking into anything / going to the menu using media controls
  • A quick save button that saves your game in the assigned slot
  • [Optional] Move the Main menu button into the mini bar
  • [Optional] Manually adjusting the Time Allocation by days/weeks as an optional replacement for the slider

MMO Expansion (and Additional Content)

  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching Code: Grid and MMO that allows you to patch your MMO Games every week using the Code: Grid function inspired by the Camelot Mod, further increasing the sales and help lessen maintenance costs.
  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching MMO Patches that allows you to patch your other AAA or Large Games instead of just only MMO’s. (making patches for AAA and Large games works like creating custom engine, but Green Patch Bubbles. more info below [bolded text])
  • New research in the Hardware Lab unlocked after researching MMO Patches in R&D Lab that allows you to develop additional content for your MMO. Additional Contents works like creating Custom Engines, requiring you to research contents and make one yourself by eliminating the required bubbles [Neon/Yellow-Green Content Bubbles], but instead of making a game engine, it increases the sales.
  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching Additional Content that allows you to research “MMO Remastered” that if researched, the profit of the MMO would not only be based on the sales, but also on the subscriptions of gamers, in-game mini transactions, and if your game is worthy and successful enough, donations and sponsorships from other companies.
  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching MMO Remastered that allows you to research “Advanced MMO Marketing” that if researched, allows your workers to develop in-game events (works like making an engine, but Yellow Event Bubbles) to further increase income.
  • New research in the Hardware Lab unlocked after researching “Advanced MMO Marketing” that allows you to make physical merchandises to your MMO to boost income.
  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching Additional Content in the Hardware Lab that allows you to develop game extensions to your game such as DLC’s and Prequels
  • New research in the R&D Lab unlocked after researching MMO Remastered and having made atleast 3 MMO’s that allows you to fix game servers. Fixing Game Servers would force all income and costs on that MMO into a halt, putting it on downtime, while your workers try to eliminate the Maintenance Bubbles to reduce the maintenance cost (works like making custom engine, but Red Maintenance Bubbles) and can finish it any time you want. Be warned, too long downtime of an MMO would make players lose interest into the game, decreasing income.

Game Dev Tycoon Revamped

  • New research in Hardware Lab after researching Custom Hardwares (AAA) that boosts console sales via Custom Hardware, and Custom Accessories for your console.
  • Game Interviewers actually invite you into interviews in an advanced notice [not about when you’re making a game, but when you’ve made a milestone/mark in the gaming history]. Accepting would pause all your company’s activities and would put your character sitting in a couch (same position, like sitting in front of a computer) with the Interviewer in front and typical Social Media stuff in the background. He asks alot of questions and your answers would affect your fans, hype, events, and other stuff in your company. The same happens at the end of the game, and some of it affects your final score.
  • Different Game Reviewers on different platforms with different topics, each of them have their unique tastes but all agrees if whether a game is good or bad. More factors affecting the reviewer score (for e.g. Platform, Engine, Name, Content in each Development Stages, Time between Announcement/Development/Finish/Release, Current Researches, etc.)
  • A never-ending sales on your game. The sales will only decrease and decrease as time goes by, until you make a sequel for it (income for both the game and the sequel) or if a recent trend corresponds to that of the game and if you managed to make it be known again, using G3 or Conventions.
  • Be able to support atleast two consoles at a time, and also never-ending sales. You can manually choose whether or not to take your console down from the market. Developing new consoles do not replace old existing ones.
  • Implement a calendar system and strategically plan your games and future games, and the minimum time requirements for a game to have another sequel / expansion pack. There will also be notifications informing you that you should need to work sooner/now/later or if a a game hit you made is requiring a sequel to be recognized again.
  • Be able to redo a certain part of the game development stage(s) instead of trashing the game completely, further saving credits, time, and trouble of you making the same game over again. The only downside is reduced hype and spend a little more on that certain development stage.

Other Mods:

Compatibility Checker
A mod that checks other mods – their compatibility, and possible errors.

UltimateLib Revisited
A mod that works exactly like UltimateLib, but more updated because @alphabit is gone.


Ideas for Game Dev Tycoon DLC
#87

Wow!! These are a lot of ideas XD. I would like to try to do some of this things, but currently i’m out of time .Why don’t you try doing by yourself? It’s not difficult modding Game Dev.


#88

would love to, but I lack the skills. I even lack the knowledge on those java scripts and stuff.
[still in junior high]


#89

Not a excuse.
We were codin’ some serius HTML in da school bro.
It all started from this…


#90

everybody made d*ck flying from left to right
Quality site


#91

I would love to make mods, but I still don’t know how.

Oh, and @Mabb feel free to use any of these ideas if you’re going to make a mod, also, I can try to elaborate more on the idea if you want.

I think all I can do is to give ideas, I feel useless >.<


#92

Idea : Bath tub mod


#93

There are tons of sites where you can learn JS or millions of tons of videos.


#94
  1. Jenkins. Integrated server to build expansion pack automatically for our MMO. We can set when it will do that ( every 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, 12 months). Available on R & D lab after we finished internet & MMO research. Maybe using ‘expansion pack’ function but we can choose first what used (engine, platform, etc). So we can use our jenkins to work on expansion pack and we can work on make a new game or contract work or just sit down watching computer :smiley:

  2. Main Character. This come just pop out from my mind when playing one man machine mode for 64 years. Why I cant work as a game developer only from my garage and ‘push’ game code to git ? so we can hire staff or maybe colaborate but no need to move to a new building. Cheaper weekly cost maybe.

and my litle concern to many awesome mod dev, Y U dont make a mod that adds awesome topics but have different name with other mods that have same topics -________-

Sorry for my bad english :love_letter:


#95

C’mon think of it as a challenge to overcome and become the best GDT modder XD
