Mafia App

I'm pursuing learning how to write iPhone/Android apps for business use and I thought my best motivator would be to do this for something I had an interest in. I want to design a mafia app. My new job makes it difficult for me to participate in anything during the day, but I've forfeited some game time at home to learn how to write and develop.

At this point, I'm about ready to dive into creating the UI and some of the basic functions of the application.

The goal is to:

* Play on your phone anywhere with any friends of your choice (discussion on how to manage "friends". Link from facebook? Register new? etc)
* Auto-moderate. Games and roles would generate automatically. Players would vote with a button, rather than with bold text. Games would auto-moderate.
* In-house private communication for mafia/third parties. A separate tab could be in place so that people could privately communicate with each other.
* The ability to expand to additional formats beyond C9/F11, such as Dethy or Crazy Games.

I want to gather thoughts and put together an initial scope of the application.

Don't link to Facebook, as not everybody has it. Look at "Kingdom's Of Camelot: Battle for the North"'s communication system. It has private messaging set up as well as "group" messaging. Uses tabs. Unsure if it's on Android, but hard to believe it would not be.

You're advocating a locally managed user database? Do you link up with people randomly? I think random players would be a disaster here.

I like this, but it would basically take the game away from the DSLR forum if we could all just play it from the app.

I just looked at it as an example. It is random, though.

Probably an unstated 'goal' but that's just my opinion.

you should have a find open game with strangers option, but build it around having friend lists.

Sounds very interesting.

As far as auto moderation goes, going to night and lynching shouldn't be automatic though.

Good luck Arch.

As a side note, progress on a re-done version of the web vote counter app is slow but going.

Why not? Hit L0? 5 minutes and go to night. Moderation is a logical process.

My actual goal is to learn programming. This project is a means of making that happen. I have work reasons to learn this stuff.

What about hated/beloved roles

To start it would have to be non crazy games. Additional modifiers could be placed later. Dethy is easy to do as well.

I see a potential for some great classes and function calls.

public class FlyingAssPumpkin {

public string shootlaser(string face , string asslaser) {
return dead.archivis(asslaser + face);
}
}

In my app shotkrissinthaface () would be a separate global function in a public global class.
