What is the minimal you would think to create a MMORPG lets say someone like "runescape" but with alot of different stuff? just im asking about the concept of the game.. and how much does people here think it would cost?

There are many factors to cost you will need to be more specific than how much will it cost. Are you going to do this yourself or have a team help develop and design? Once its developed you'll need a dedicated server and be able to have it located at a data centre these costs will vary depending on where you live.

if you code it yourself, it will be free
if you want a pro to do it for you, a big game like that will cost you well over $500

Wrong. Part of Runescape also includes things like the server(s) (which is expensive hardware) and the internet connection(s). Time is also costly and it would definitely require a lot of time.

Your question is quite not specific, "a lot of different stuff" means what? Someone might want to answer this as - you will require lots of resources and $$. Will that be a helpful answer to you. No, obviously not. So be specific in your question. A little clarification would be much of help. All the Best.

yes i know servers will be expensive and all
and what i ment by "all of different stuff" i was talking bout game ideas.. not cost wise..
