I am a 3D content developer, with 7 years experience in the industry. While most of my work has been for government & university, I have always had an interest in virtual world development.
I am aware most of the capabilities of this engine are dependent on the skill of coder and team. I however was hoping I could ask those with experience here if unity is a viable engine for a sandbox style mmo?
This is some of the primary hopes I have for the engines function capacity.
I thank you in advance for any helpful information.
None of those things are really engine features, and very few are tech related in general. You're obviously not going to have an out of the box solution of those things and are going to have to write systems for them. You could do them with Unity.
Honestly if you're asking those kinds of questions you'd be better off looking at the (more expensive) MMO-specific engines out there. A simple google search led to this list: http://www.devmaster.net/wiki/MMORPG_Creation_Packages
