[OPEN] Smooth Terrain Developer (15% Revenue)


#1

Welcome all interested developers, thank you for seeking this opportunity. I would like to start off by saying this is isn’t a job that we will try and drill hours and time in so you can complete the task fast. We are in no rush to push this game out and have plenty of time. With that being said, please work efficiently. You will have time to play games, chat with users, etc so don’t be in a hurry to complete this work.

About the Game

Inbound is a WW2 themed battle royale that brings 100 players into an island map to fight for the last. The game plans to have a variety of loot that will help you progress and for pre-alpha we have chosen 5 guns to be finished 3 of which have been completed. Our programmer @jaschutte is working well and has already finished the gun framework so we are making decent progress. We have 2 modelers, one who is working on vehicles and me who is doing everything else modeling and building wise although if you have building experience as well and would like to help, you are welcome to (which will also increase your pay).

Job Description

Your job is to work on the large 4096x4096 stud island map that will hold all of the players. Again, we are lenient on work time so don’t feel like you have to devote all of your time to this project. The map will need to have a sand layer and then slowly build up to form land above water so that it looks realistic and works well. We plan to make this completely smooth terrain without any parts and you don’t need to worry about vegetation at all. I will be doing vegetation and place buildings. We would like to see work before we hire you. I have also created images on a baseplate to follow for the design of the map.

Payment

Your payment will be 15% of the games profits forever and we plan to push out many advertisements to make sure we get good publicity so we get a good start. We have many ways of monetizing our game so as we don’t want to guarantee lots of money, it may very well involve lots.

I’d suggest marketing this game more as a 1940s era battle royale instead of a WW2 theme.
When I saw World War 2, you peaked my interest and got me assuming it was a team-based elimination game, only to find that it was a battle royale. This isn’t to say battle royales are inherently bad, it is just confusing.


#3

There are already several WW2 team based elimination games on Roblox that seek enough concurrent players for me to compete with that genre. This game (not at all copied from Apex Legends it just happened to line up with our plans) has a 4 player per team game mode and a 10 player per team game mode.


#4

sorry for the misunderstanding, I was under the impression that your game was solely a FFA

my problem with the ww2 title is that it’s confusing seeing “World War 2” slapped on a royale game (even if it has teams of 4,10) because of the implication of axis vs allies gameplay. once again, i suggest a rebrand as a 1940s era game - you can have the weapons and style of the 1940s without the implication of axis vs allies gameplay

I’m interested in the team game modes, that sounds really fun :smile:


#5

Everything is based off of World War 2 including locations on the map, vehicles such as tanks and planes, and other models. It would be silly to list it under a 1940’s era game if we have as much correlating to the war as we do.

#7

You can’t copyright the idea of a battle royale or the idea of a WW2 game. Could you explain your logic to me?


#8

How could you get DMCA’d from a war and a game genre. An idea cannot be copyrighted only physical assets created by no one else but the creator or whoever has signed their assets away on a contract.


#9

That isn’t have the new intellectual property rules work. You should research what intellectual property (IP) is and read Roblox’s terms on what it is.


#10

you can do all of this without stating that it’s a world war 2 game. you can use assets that are from world war 2 (1940s era equipment) without implying the axis or allies connection.

also, don’t you find it disrespectful that 100 players are dressed as soldiers of the same country/countries are killing each other to the final individual?
i’m not saying this to insult your concept, I personally love world war 2 and 1940s history, i just think it’s important you understand the implications of your game.


#11

Forgive me for asking, 4096^2 chunks or studs?


#12

Sorry, I misunderstood everything, sorry I wasted your time. I would explain, but it would take too long.


#13

Studs


#14

I don’t find anything disrespectful. Soldiers don’t have a designated country uniform in the game and as a word war 2 enthusiast I believe it supports themes related to the war and respects what happened.
That’s just like saying any game developed with the thought of world war 2 disrespects the war. Games like COD were even considering adding a battle royale to their game so it’s not unusual.


#15

When millions died on battlefields fighting for a cause, showing teamwork and dying with their fellow soldiers, isn’t it disrespectful to make a game where they’re all just killing each other to the last man?


#16

I specifically stated in my last post that the users aren’t wearing a uniform that directly represents a country. The game is a concept of WW2 and I don’t understand why it’s such a big problem that I create something that was in history and cannot be denied. If Roblox allowed me to, I would’ve put even more graphic content in my game that really hits home to a lot of people a part of the war. It is the truth of history and I find that people try and deny all of the things that happen and move on with life. I would describe in detail what I would add if Roblox didn’t have as strict rules but I don’t want to get into any trouble on the forum. Now, if you have any other arguments with my original post, please PM me instead of writing it in the comments as this was meant to be a post for recruiting, not to have an argument.
