Tabula Rasa. Nothing else to say. That would make very many people very very happy!

I second this notion. There are a few others, but TR would be near the top of my list.

Asherons Call, as to teach every developer in the world HOW TO MAKE an MMORPG because none of them have a clue.

Hello Kitty Online for the simple reason that there are too many jerks that play the game right now and with open source I could run my private server with all my close friends.

Seriously, there are a couple. Earth and Beyond, Auto Assault, Dungeon Runners to name a few. I think these games would work great because they did have a small following and those people would go back to play something similar.

"Stargate Worlds (Is this game still being developed? Or has it been cancelled?)"

Good question. I sure most have seen or heard about this article:
http://www.massively.com/2010/03/29/cheyenne-mountain-entertainment-sells-off-stargate-assets/

As for the state of the company and where the game is in develop, I would start at the main corporate website and take it from there:
http://www.cheyenneme.com/games/stargateworlds/

Personally, I dare not speculate because things can change overnight in the MMO production world. Although I do agree with the idea of an open sourced SGW. Maybe then we could play a Star Gate MMO this decade.

Vanguard. There's got to be enough open source-rs that hate themselves enough to take on it's source code.

Eve Online... I would work with the community and make a consensal pvp ruleset.

Tell me how it wouldnt work and that the computer would have to be crazy-powerful all you want, but I guarantee you: 1 year of my CPVP Server being up, and you'd see a subscription base in the millions. Eve would be -the- Sci-Fi MMORPG.

CCP is just too damn stubborn to make a second server, so why shouldnt someone show them?

I only played in the beta so I don't have as strong an opinion, but I liked the idea of Tabula Rasa. I trhink for some reason it was giving me headaches and I never bothered to investigate a cause. Got involved in something else and then the game was out. My loss. What killed it?

What killed TR? Oh the fact the game classes where only 50% complete, when you got your end weapons / level whatever it was, they were so horrible so you ended up hating your character after grinding him all the way up.. No quests, massive imbalance, i remember my teammate went around one slashing everything, while i just ran behind him wishing I was him. At later levels the game was just a drag.. game actually got boring the more powerful you got.. Was just a lost cause game that deserves its grave and needs no further attention... The ones that loved it were probably their first born MMORPG, go back and play AC and see what the fuss is all about... 12 years ago.. has better and more advanced game mechanics than today, with multiple mob interaction, grinding was a term that was fun, and when they release the new texture patch, ill be back killing 10,000,000 more lugians, olthoi, golems, drudges, raveners, shadows, shreths, banderlings, and endless bestiary, with actual lore and traits.. Oh my, im going back now..

Looks like you were another one who never played TR in its last months, pity.

Definitely. The last several months of TR were amazing, they were releasing big updates every month that kept it interesting. Battle suits, mechs, armor sets, upgraded weapons, additional weapon grades, different mechanics. The auction house at LAUNCH was nicely organized and had good search options, putting Cryptic's CO/STO 'My First Auction Houses' to shame.

I've never seen such a small life-support dev team do so much and work so hard to keep it going. At the end, we even got a wormhole to take us back to Earth and try to retake it.

I miss it because I enjoyed making at least some small difference in the world. If I held an Outpost from being retaken by the enemy, by golly, it'll stay held while I was there!
