I need to create a chat site rather like Habbo Hotel.
It will be called Manic Motel.
There will be a mobile phone console. You are given a mobile number when you join and that is your mobile number. People can phone you and have a chat with you, rather like a Messenger chat. People can also search you name and it will give you a mobile number which is that persons.
Ice-cream parlour, bowling arena, Public Park, swimming pool, water theme park, grocery shops, clothes shops, restaurants, bars, lounges, winter wonderland.
There will be guest rooms. When somebody creates their own room there will get wallpaper and flooring with it.
Manics play games to win credits which are used to buy furniture with. We can give credits to people. You find credits lying on the floor. On an opening
day quest the winner gets 10 of every furniture on the server and everyone who takes part gets 5000 credits. There will be one thing that will never be released and will only be owned by
the five main people and the winner of the opening day quiz.
You will phone a virtual shop on your manic mobile and
request what furniture you require. It will then be delivered to you. Your furniture will be stored in a removal van.
And, of course, I need a chat facility.
Right, I need a quote for this. Please give me some rough ideas on how much this wil cost. Thanks.
Such a project would demand a lot of time from those involved in developing it, not to mention experience if you want it done properly.
Cost-wise this could go well into the tens of thousands just to initially launch.
I don't understand why you don't care about "running and looking after" the site? - That will be a highly important area to focus on, or otherwise could mean the demise of the site.
I'm just wondering exactly how serious you are about going ahead with this, because it's quite often that I hear of people wanting to create a Habbo-like site. Many faily to actually plan the whole thing out carefully, and realize that it's a tough business to run.
