Nicely done! I think you've done a good job capturing the essence of my #1 free time hangout. ;)

I've been playing in the Midgar FF7 sim since the beginning of 2007. I play 3 different characters (the manager of the Honeybee Inn and 2 barmaids at 7th Heaven) there and help newbies get started in the RP.

There are some amazingly talented people in the sim and it's become a haven for Final Fantasy lovers as well as people who just like to have good roleplaying. There's always a good plot going and even on quieter days, a lot of us will generate side-plots to help keep the story moving and get other people involved. I have never, ever logged on and been bored.

As for whether or not Square has given their blessing, I don't think a huge company like them would be worried about our sim. It's really just like a fan website, only on an interactive level. No one is making a profit off of this and it's generating interest in their product. If you do a quick Google search you will see literally a hundred FF7 fansites and RPs: ours is just another one on the map.

With that said, I think anyone who works for Square would be entirely impressed. The GMs, the builders, the citizens- everyone has really done a fabulous job on this sim. If there was any fan-generated content worthy of their seal of approval, this would be it. =) I know I'm biased as I invest so much of my time there, but even the casual observers I've talked to have been duly impressed.

Because only THEY are allowed to infringe copyright - not anyone else.

Sweet! This looks amazing! Though wonder how long it will take before Square-Enix send a cease and desist letter. :(

Hopefully never, though I've never been under the impression that SE are fans of this sort of thing. :(


You know, Ramsus did not at all create the Shin-Ra tower you see in that sim. The one he created in the old one sucked.

Speaking of that idiot he's the reason I quit being a GM/Scriptor there.


@ Tezla

You were forced to quit due to stealing the sim's funds.

hello this is a new one to me and i thing it looks cool how do i do it id love to try it out pls


ooooooooo I'm in there...Ahh....old times...


Ok, at the rist of sounding a bit unfair, I will say that in the beginning, I was quite inpressed with the Midgar/Junon sims. Ok, so, I hung out, attached huds, RPd with the other players...and had a generally good time. What people have been impressed about is duely noted...however...a few things realllly have bothered me. One, the horrid lagg present with all the prims in close proximity, and the scripting, and the multi-combat use of spells. They should have seperated the plates by at least 300 meters, and just built a false cieling over the slums. I have heard midgar will be rebuilt in some parts to try and curb this soon, however. Hopefully they will get this adressed, because we old-timers are sorta used to the fast play. Another REALLY big point, is that perhaps Midgart should not go public, if the public is sorta shunned there to begin with. I have been in the presence of many experianced players there, who got involved in combat, didnt die, Rp'd better than the oldies there, and applied for Wutai, ShinRa, Avalanche, and others. They were never even acknowleged, or written to, or allowed into even the testing for these groups...myself included. Ok, then if you complain legitimately, the ones who are IN these groups already, just try to shut you down, saying you shouldn't complain and no wonder you werent accepted, and how they waited months to be accepted-which is total BS.Later, i heard many bragging to others they were accepted within days or weeks. Look, dork-wads...haha, If It is public...the public needs to participate, as many of us played FF7 and others when it came out, unlike a lot of these upstarts. Oh well, probly most of these kids who are hot-shots there anyways. Lol, If you percieve venom in my words...yep...

Wow, such old memories. Midgar has grown up so much since this. It doesn't even look remotely the same anymore. www.SLFFVII.com
