As I'm sure some of you know there has been a lot of discussion on a possible LMS Standalone version. If it were to happen we'd use Platinum Arts Sandbox as a base which can be found at http://Kids.Platinumarts.Net As a note the latest release received over 3k downloads at the fileplanet mirror alone and it hasn't even been out two weeks.

We are very interested in finding out what kind of interest LMS Standalone would get and who would be willing to help out. There is also the possibility of going ahead with a Legends: Game Arena type game, or having both as a part of LMS Standalone. Let's hear your thoughts. Also what would you want to see in a LMS Standalone? Feel free to ask any questions. Take care and thanks for your time.

I think it would be a bonus to either do Legends first or LMS stand alone and Legends only because Doom 3 is done with and no more patches are coming out. But when Id releases Doom 4 then another LMS MoD (LMS 5.0) would be called for I think.

I would like to see Platinum Arts develop beyond a Doom 3 MoD team and I think it will happen with a LMS standalone and/or Legends.

I'm a little confused about the whole concept of "standalone" - like, what does that really mean? Completely separate from doom 3 minus the engine?

It means that you only need to download LMS and you can play it. It means that no one has to buy doom 3, or any other engine to be able to play it. Go and download Sandbox. That is the standalone engine we want to use. Take care.

Its an idea..
I really don't know at this point. Because Doom 4 might not come for awhile.
and Standalone sounds like lots and lots of work.

I think you should stay with id Tech 4.
It will be open sourced, probably for the next quakecon 2008!
(check this http://www.linuxgames.com/news/feedback.php?identiferID=9374&action=flatview )

And if this is going to happen, you know that the community will keep the engine alive and will improve it so that it will say up to date.

If idTech4 is open source, there will be nothing in the way to do a standalone version.

So I would wait, and already rebuild the assets of doom3 which will stay copyrighted.

best regards
Oli

I don't know much on either. But I'll agree with Anton on becoming a seperate team ourselves. Of course it would be nice when D4 comes out that we can advance on it with another LMS. The standalone sounds awsome. Tho all I can do is maybe help with ads and testing for the most part. As far as creating things like levels or more basic, cad work, I'm useless. I could help with designing and as sharing ideas. Tho if it is going to be on the Sandbox, I already have some experience working with it when Calimer first released it.
When I'm finished with the video I'll look more into it. later Cool

A standalone game would be a great idea if you have the team to do it. I'm not familiar with the Cube2 engine at all, and I'm not sure who's still left on the team(dev wise) but you would need just about all new assets from scratch plus code work. If you can find the people, I would say go ahead and do it.........would be a worthwhile experience to complete a full standalone game I would think.
