Sounds like a neat idea, but how do you prevent hacking/cheating?

I don't know how to stop hacking, maybe with some kind of unique key number system that has too match the stand alone version??

Also limit gang size to something much lower than what we have now? Thinking 8-10, enough to man a FE and a muscle car?

With a smaller gang they couldn't just take over SS or something, and it could be a boom for the MMO business.

Thats a nice hook to get more subs here too.  Or in absence of subs, more players anyway...

It shouldn't be too hard, I can encrypt the data so it's verified as coming from the singleplayer game client.

Well you could have any size gang in the spin-off game but only allow the best, say 8-10, to be "promoted" to an Evan gang (e.g. the MMO).

If you can upload offline gangs online, no matter how hard you try, people WILL hack it. No matter what kind of protections you have in place. You're really better off leaving it alone, or making it online gang -> offline gang only, instead of a two way street.

As I said many times long ago, I'd be happy for the SP version to simply replicate what a subscribed player gets in MMO minus any player interaction.

The appeal of DW is the 3d, turn based, non-fps with upgradeable and repairable cars.

I see no reason to remove travels and the bog standard trade missions (they are quite enough fun).

I don't see the need forced progression through a campaign, though if that were available fine.

I certainly wouldn't like to see any interaction with the MMO other than possibly being able to download my MMO gang, skins and maybe scenarios that other players have built in tactical into the SP version (not going the other way).

Basically DW as it stands, running on a stand alone PC, without having to arrange your life around other players.

I'd like the ability to save the game at any point (but like the original wasteland when you pick up the game again that's where you are). If it is a wholly SP game with no upward interaction with the MMO it doesn't matter if I "cheat" by saving the game before every nasty encounter and reloading if it goes wrong. Currently we have something like that in a call to Sam if the game rips us off (due to server crash or the like).

So basically put the client and the server on my PC, no manuals, no miniatures, no limited edition fiction bound in human skin. Make those available for those that want it if it would work, but don't make everyone who doesn't want it pay for it.

And definitely not Steam and no tricky DRM stuff. Nothing irritates me more thn not being able to use something I have paid for because someone elses system isn't working today or isn't compatible with my machine anymore.

Well said!!! I LOVE the idea of a open world like it is where i can just build up my gang and then optionally move the story along if i choose.

I wil say it would be nice to build the single player game with the idea of upgrading it to support multiplayer eventually via a patch. I think updating the new offlien client to support what the website site does would make the game more accessable.

If you do, make it reasonably moddable so I can try my balance changes to certain specs and handguns... No actually, I'd pay you if you let me play around with the weapon stats some :rolleyes:

Surprised to see a lot of support for this idea.  No hard feelings but I would put this game away forever, if that was possible.

MMO or not MMO there is no in-between for me personally.

I think the reverse would happen. It would increase interest in the MP version of the game, especially if the new client evolved to support all the fuctions that are split between the game client and website. No matter how easy or fun the system is that 2 client interface is going to keep some people distant. Intergrating and getting more visability and creating more buzz is just going to increase population.

Hey maybe a tier would include 1 month free and another teir could include 1 year free for kickstarter!
