Ah, a fresh new idea, and a fresh new way of executing it! When can we look forward to seeing a concept screenshot of the title screen?

the story is very basic so far so heres the main idea,
A virus built out of the remaining parts of leela called LeelaX.V that causes unknown things to go wrong
the rest is just very basic

What kind of unknown things? Does she burn toast, start talking backwards, and paints the ship pink?

Unknown like Feats of Destruction , Hacking, And Control

like one of the ramblings.
"To Be Free There Must Be Blood For ALL"

All the stuff you listed is pretty generic. Come on now...make it do something unexpected...like change its name to "Formerly Known As Leela" or "Fred" and it starts talking in a deep manly voice. Or make it scrwe your head on backwards or attach wing to Hulks...

i just started with the idea so it could be much better over time

but anyway there will be unexpected things.
like the way it all started.

Did somebody fart, blowing up their house, killing everyone, sending everyone to some alternate dimension which turns out to be Hell and Leela is actually Frank the Bartender trying to save everyone's souls for the sole purpose of making money off of his rarely visited bar up in Heaven?

Leave this guy alone. Great stories don't make themselves, you assholes. I ought to know. While he's obviously thought this through quite a bit, he just needs to polish some of the rough edges. I kinda shivered when I read "To Be Free There Must Be Blood For ALL." Seriously, that alone is the seed of an amazing scenario. All he needs is guys to do the way easier stuff, like art. Can't you give him a hand?

Yeah, true enough. I tend to spaz...
What kind of art are you looking for? What style?
(Hey, it'll give me an excuse to actually start working on art again.)
I'm gonna need some kind of subject before I make anything.

Well said Irons. The JUICE has always been strong with you. As a token of JUICE's good will, I will gladly provide some art for your soon to me amazing scenario. Feel free to use it for your textures (you can split them up, so really I'm giving you several textures!), or maybe even a new monster. Please nameless, continue to let the JUICE flow through you!

Perfect art. Hey, I'm starting a scenario. Can you be my artist, mapper, and scripter? I have a story written down already. Check out this fanfiction I wrote.

Holy crap irons, with a story like that you've already beaten Nameless' plot. Looks like you're going to have to step it up a notch if you want to compete with a real writer, Nameless.

Aren't we always preaching about the need for maturity? Sure, the poor guy is annoying us all by expecting us of essentially creating a whole project for him; but still, this backhanded sarcasm really doesn't represent well of community hospitality.

@Nameless.
Honestly, we see people proposing projects all the time and almost all (Bare in mind I can't think of any) of them ever get finished, or most even started. You must understand, you can't throw an idea into the ring and expect everybody to suddenly jump hoops for you. Now had you come to us with, not only a project in mind, but some really hard work of your own (and allot of it) that shows us that you are seriously committed to work on it with out our help but would prefer our help, then you would get a different response. But seriously, everyone here is just going to make fun of you and ignore you.

J2000, at this point there is almost no hospitality whatsoever. The newer members are almost always idiots, and the older members have to face round after round of their messes. When you've seen the cycles of the same stuff over and over, you know what's coming anyway if you try to stay nice: yet another wave of ignorance. This time, we're trying a different approach. We're letting the rude little farts who show up (lol packard) run fairly wild and some of us have decided to imitate them. If nothing else, it's more fun than facing Yet Another Doog.

Think about it this way. Here's what you see:

What scenario requesters see:

I'm claiming that it wont work but thats ok I'm also telling you to do no work lol, so whats wrong with asking people to do your work anyway! My point tho is because nothing like this has had suxess before NEway, just go die
What scenario requesters then think:
*starts crying* I WILL SHOW THEM! MARATHON DOOG 4EVER!
Isn't it much easier to encourage everything you can while those in the know can have a little chuckle before answering Router Configuration Request #48969?

No offense, but I'm honestly wondering if this is a joke (maybe it is, and I'm just really slow to pick up that it might be a troller).

At the very least, it would be wise for the person coming up with the story to be able to do the terminal text himself (let's assume someone else fills in the maps so it can be written around them). If you can't even do that, what hope is there that you can convey the story in a manner that gives the player tasks and missions to complete without having to rely on someone else to think of them for you?

When I started my project (which seems to be on extended hiatus until I can access my old Mac), I only told people I was working on it, and worked on some maps and took screenshots. THEN I started asking for help. And even if you can prove your work is well under way, don't expect a huge turnout of volunteers. Odds are the first scenario you complete will be on your own, and if it's any good then you can expect a better collaberation with other makers.

I'd say something more encouraging, but I'd have to see a darn good plot written out and presented in a fashion that would make me curious to imagine it in game form.
