FlameSnoopy Posted April 14, 2017 Share Posted April 14, 2017 http://i.cubeupload.com/1Fh1Hj.png Movie Tycoon returns with the fifth edition! Movie Tycoon 5 is a forum game where you create your own movie studio, hire talent and make movies. Can you secure a foothold in the everchanging industry? › Each new movie studio starts with $10,000,000. Your studio cannot go overbudget. › Every day players can make movies with cast of their choice. › To enter yourself into the movie industry, please create your studio. (Simply writing the name of the studio will do) › You can then begin to create your movie. http://i.cubeupload.com/UFy8eY.png STEP ONE: CASTING & PRE-PRODUCTION › This is the initial phase of creating the movie, where you cast out talent to star in the roles you have planned out for your movie. › Before that you need to set a few basic details, the title, genre, summary of the plot and rating. › Different genres have different benefits and negatives, for example, a fantasy epic requires a big budget to do well in the box office and in a drama the performance the cast weigh more heavily than in a senseless action packed B-movie. › Summarizing the plot well in the early going will help make potential cast more interested in the product. › The rating of the movie [G, PG, PG-13, R, NC-17] will have have an effect on the box office & physical copy revenue generated by the movie. › It's important to use established talent in lead roles if you want to avoid big surprises. A low Star Power talent doing terrible is way worse than a Star doing an average job. › The flip side to the above statement of course is that established stars cost a lot of money, it might be worth negotiating special deals with potential cast. Pay cuts from asking price, multiple movie deals, post-revenue cuts, imagination is welcomed. › Taking a gamble on a low Star Power talent is not a bad idea by any means, especially if they're in a Minor role (or even Major role) — they take a low wage and you can help kick start careers if they have a good performance. › A weak production will have an effect in everything presented in the movie. Production signals how well the lighting, camera work, editing etc. is done. Minimal Production Cost spending can result in a movie looking amateurish. › A big marketing budget will help the movie do better in the box office.

The bigger the [sP], the bigger the check. Box office hits occur far more likely with a cast abundant with [sP], especially important to remember when considering the lead roles for your movies. As talent take part in movies, their [sP] and Directing [DIR] can change for better or worse, depending on their performance and the movie's box office potency. The more screen time talent have in a movie that does well critically or commercially, the more their [sP] and [DIR] will rise. Thus it is absolutely possible to build up a nobody to star status, if given the right movie and enough screen time.

ROUGH TALENT COST ESTIMATES » Director: 1.25 * Directing » Lead Role: 1.5 * Star Power » Major Role: 0.75 * Star Power » Minor Role: 0.25 * Star Power + 0.25 for nudity LADY LUCK » Every talent will get a Performance Rating [PERF] once they work on a movie. High [sP] stars have a better base [PERF]. After talent chemistry and base value is taken into account, Lady Luck comes into play and gives the final touch to the [PERF]. If talent's [PERF] is heavily below their [sP] or [DIR], the stat in question will decrease, depending on the overall success of the movie. A weak performance in a hit movie is far more forgiving to [sP] losses.
