Hello,

Just an idea.
What about Empire ?
http://empire.idlpaper.com/toc.html

Empire is a real time, multiplayer, internet-based game, featuring
military, diplomatic, and economic goals.
(source code is available).

Reading it again . . .. seriously, i can offer graphical expertise, and
*alot* of web space and server space for something like this if anyone
wants it look into it as a bot project, so, now that that part of it is
figured, lets go !!

I love that kind of thing, and think it would be very very cool to
incorporate into an AW style....from what i can see, with the source
available, yeah, it would be alot of work, but alot less than doing one
from scratch . .and, this one has been play tested to death as well . . .

So, are you thinking about using AW world and community names for the property
and stuff?

What I envision is using world names instead of street names and railroads
and Virtual chance cards (or whatever creative names we can come up with)
that say stuff like "Go to The Void.&nbsp; Do not collect $200 VR bucks."
or "You take a vacation to the Red Planet.&nbsp; Go to Mars.&nbsp; If it
is unowned, you may buy it.&nbsp; If it is owned, pay twice the hotel fee."&nbsp;
etc, etc, etc.

very funny :-)
<p>Come to think of it, you have brought up a very good question.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
How do we make criteria for which worlds are included in the game and which
are not?

For most community-based Monopoly varients, I think it has to do
with money... after that, I assume it's first-come, first-served
;-) That said, i bid $0, but ask for the "Boardwalk" position

Well, I believe boardwalk position should be reserved for a world that
is at least historically significant or a community world or language world
or building world.

Hmmm... maybe teleport worlds would make great rail roads like AWGate
and a few others :)

hhhhmmmm, that is also something to consider.&nbsp; Maybe the prices should
be more realistic.&nbsp; What do you think?

You may wish to consider grouping the worlds using a 'theme' approach
and not 'which is the better' (which would be different for most)
Worlds... There shouldn't be a penalty placed on Worlds based on the
skill of the Builder but on what they are attempting to 'say' with their
world... Everyone... even the Master World Builders... were at one time
fumbling with default objects, making 4 walls and a tree AND were dam
proud of it when it was done...

The Monopoly Board Game has classes of properties BUT it has ALL
classes... Sure there should be some thot' for those Worlds that are
outstanding. The Worlds that are 'a work in progress' shouldn't be
dismissed out-a hand tho'...

Not that you seemed to be going in that direction... Just wanted to get
my 2 cents in before you started to make any decisions... :-)

perhaps a lottery then, to determine placement after the groupings are made?

Just brainstorming here so if I tend to contradict myself, pay no attention---
<p>How about the monopolies being called systems (i.e., solar system, etc),
but named after earthly equivalents to the major theme of the worlds included
in it?&nbsp;&nbsp; For example, shopping worlds could be in the Rodeo Drive
System.
<p>There would have to be a limit to the number of worlds in each system
and each world must add some flavor to the game.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; I am
not trying to be exclusive, but we can't let just every Tom, Dick and Harry
who tinkers with building a world join.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; There should
be some time limit to how long the world has been established, or if the
theme is sufficiently developed enough to be included.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
For example, I believe that Outland would be an excellent addition to the
game because it had a vision and succeeded in carrying out that vision
through hard work and good planning.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; On the other
hand, I believe that Bubba's party place (to grab a name out of the air),
which only has a few randomly placed objects and maybe a street or two
and does not really enhance the nuance of the universe, should not be included.
<br>Perhaps when it has evolved past the tinkering stage and has a clear
vision, then would be a good time to seriously consider it for acceptance
into the game.
<p>There should be some clear guidelines which will protect the integrity
of the game and be fair to the world builders who have worked hard to make
a wonderful place for visitors.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
I think it would be unfair to Fyrene to be left out because the place was
taken by Bubba's world.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; She and her friends worked
hard on the world but would have to be displaced by a tinkerer?&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
That is what I call unfair.
<p>That is an extreme example (we could accommodate them both by having
a separate system for each type), but you know what I mean.&nbsp;&nbsp;
The tinkerer worlds system would have to be "first apply first placed".&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
The themed systems would have to have stricter criteria for admittance.
<p>Certain type systems for worlds having a clear theme and/or motif should
have guidelines such as level of development, longevity, etc, etc&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;
With clear guidelines, the chances of partiality will be slimmer.
