    Default Thornefall



    I discovered this game recently and personally am really intrigued by it, it seems great although is currently still in development although according to the developers there is an upcoming BETA testing stage.
    The only thing the game currently lacks is a decent community on the forums, it'd be nice to give this game a bit of hype.

    I would recommend checking it out here:

    Thornefall.com









    Night time

    So what do you think, does it have any potential?

    yes, it's called runescape.

    Apparently no, I don't think it's the same language at all. It uses their own Engine and tools.
    I definitely think it's in some way related to Runescape in the way most MMO's these days are all similar to each other.

    You can tell that there are quite a few difference between the shape of the characters from Thornefall & Runescape.
    I think this is possibly why I'm interested in it, I was a big fan of Runescape back in the day but it's certainly not a rebuild but perhaps inspired by Runescape just like WoW and most other MMO's out there.

    I think of this as advertising a/your game, being your a first poster I can only see it that way.
    The game seems darkened for a reason and the way its delivered isn't impressive either.

    If it was mine I would be pretty happy to claim it as mine considering I wouldn't have a clue on where to start off on this project, I found out about it and wanted to help pickup the community and hype the game a bit more.

    i saw the combat, and something bothered me. Runescape when you engage a monster, you would kinda slide into place and smack him upside the head. this does the same thing which kinda made me bring it up it's way to similar to be a coincidence.

    I certainly see what you mean about the combat and I agree he maps and characters are very similar as well although there are quite a few things from the video that you can see are different, the combat looks the same although it isn't as... Smooth as Runescape's perhaps. The way the characters walk is more like the walking animation of Sims. The tree is animated when cut down whereas in Runescape as it always has done the tree just vanishes and turns into a stump. Shadows dependant on time of day and day/night, this is certainly not in Runescape.

    I see where you are coming from and I definitely had the same concerns myself and I actually went on Runescape to compare the two. :P
    It certainly seems different and when it's playable you'll be able to confirm if it is a replica of Runescape or an actual game.

    Well see here's the thing...Looks exactly like the engine that runescape used. Ill tell you what. If Jagex sees this you guys are going to have one hell of a law suit on your hands. Especially if you keep saying it uses its own engine. As for this "Cee" I can bet that your first name is Cody...Which is one of the Mod's on your Forum.... Remember Ragezone is not your friend...

    It looks really bad when this website is also posted on every runescape and moparscape forum out there....Good One..

    At the very least, it's using Runescapes assets. I'd bet all my monopoly bucks it's just a highly customized private server. :/

    A lot of private servers for various games have potential, make revenues, and are hugely-popular. Nothing wrong with a private server... Unless you're posting about one on OnRPG, in which case, I believe it's against the forum rules.

    Oh I Have absolutely no problem with private servers. The Issue I have is the fact that they are saying that it is 100% theirs. I cant stand thief's!

    I wonder if Jagex has even seen this?!?

    I haven't played RS in years so even though I notice similarities I can't be entirely certain it's an actual private server. If someone can show me actual proof that it is indeed a RS private server I'll be sure to close this and any other threads that pop out.

    Runescape

    "Their Game"


    Not only the pictures I found why are all the topics in these locations...
    Runescape Fan Site
    This one Caught my eye...
    Moparscape
    Which is a Forum for a private server emulator...

    Need I Say more?

    By the way, I didn't just only post the sites I found the advertisement on that looked suspicious, but these are the only sites that pop up period...

    I agree with you, it does look very suspicious although it's just about as close to Runescape as WoW is to GW2.







    There are multiple differences from Thronefall and Runescape, It's most likely associated with Private server sites because it is a Runescape inspired game and possibly the first to get this far. Of course I can't prove if their engine and tools are theirs or not and to be fair I couldn't care less that's up to the developers to decide whether they're trying to fool others or they're telling the truth and if they are trying to fool everyone it sure will be found out at some point.



    A friend showed me this game the other day and it looked really great to me although on first site I was convinced it was a Private server and I had the same discussion with my friend, I haven't played Runescape in a long time and from comparing Images from todays Private servers and the official Runescape to Thornefall there are some unique differences the graphics and models certainly aren't 1 - 1 but are very similar, it seems the developers lacked creativity with trying to create their own building looks and just tweaked from what Runescape already had although look at other MMO's and compare their buildings and FPS games such as Ace of Spades and Guncraft and Minecraft.

    Also here's another game that looks rather similar to Runescape:


    Comparison of Games

    GunCraft:


    Ace of Spades:


    Build and Shoot:


    It's just difficult to tell whether this is the same game until someone is able to actually play the game or see what language the Client is programmed in, if it's not Java it's clearly their own client although the Characters and terrain do look similar.

    Ok I knew this was going to come up because ive read through the series of forums on other sites and all the advertisers have mentioned the same things...well lets see it this way. Yes Guildwars2 and wow do look similar, but the thing that shows from thornfall and runscape are...They have the same textures, models and even animations...come on GW2 and WoW at leased have different animations and textures...And as for all the Voxel games you posted, That's the game style...Voxel...look it up sometime. There is no such things as a runescape game type...that would be runescape.....

    You can check out some of the development pictures there, the textures are just low-poly textures it's not really hard to make something similar, the only textures I can see that are the same is the grass and the paths, it's clear the trees are different, leaves are different, houses are different, it just looks similar.

    Runescape doesn't have snow anywhere near the same and if it is a Private server then it's the most highly developed private server ever created since I've never seen a private server edit the trees differently and create a new animation for cutting trees and then create an animation for the falling tree. The developers are quite obviously highly associated with Runescape and want to put some competition out there, I don't agree with making it so close that it looks like it and I agree it certainly does need some changes although these pictures are from 4-6 months ago and a lot can change in such a short period of time.

    The NPC's and walking animation is completely different than Runescape, look at the dragon for example, I've never seen a Dragon look like that in Runescape, it's obvious a lot of hard work has been put into this game and the developers considering there is only two of them deserve a well done.

    As I said the only way we'll know if it's a rip off is when we can play the game.

    Yeh and as I said that's the developers problem.
    I just found a game which looked half decent and sort of like Runescape a game which I'm familiar with from years ago.
    Although from the Gallery pictures of when they show the Map editor they're using it looks nothing like the one you just showed me.

    You'd have to be pretty stupid to claim someone's code especially a big companies code as your own.
    But that's down to the developers of the game...

    It looks like Runescape or Eldevin just not nearly as polished.

    That video is a Work in Progress by one individual, its more or less showing that its simple to make a map editor for RS....
