Server Discussion / Re: Making a new server

Both the above guys are pretty solid in what to do/expect.

I'm a PreRE fan, but if it's lacking in the job changer and autoloot, it's not going to go anywhere.

My biggest pet peev is end game, more specifically WoE.
I've got a thread out there somewhere on the importance of a strong FULL WoE, that hasn't been localized to 1 or 2 castles, to artificially stimulate fast paced combat.  Half of WoE is looong term strategy and alliances....ALL focused around the creation of God Items.
No one's going to want to stay at a server long term, if the only thing they are fighting for is bragging rights for a week.

I think there's need for a good, stable PreRE server right now.
But I agree, you'll need a clearly defined and communicated plan, before you launch.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.  I hope you've got the magic touch. ^_^

yennar pretty much summed up some of my thoughts.

The biggest question I almost never see answered with these types of posts is: why are you making the server?

There's always a list of rates, available pre-made NPCs, commands, etc. but never an explanation of "why." Hate to be such a downer, but if your answer to "why" is what you said in the OP of "recently I've had an interest of getting back into it," then your server is dead from the start.

Here's a list of reasons for making a server that guarantees it will be closed in 1-2 months:
  • I felt like it / thought it would be fun / or any variation of "just because."
  • It's an easy source of side-income. (no one will admit this is their reason out loud)
  • I want to unite all players / I want a high population server.
  • I saw a cool src mod or script on rAthena and want to base a server around it.
  • I like <insert other anime or game>, and thought an RO server with that theme would be cool.
You seem to fall under reason 1, which in that case, please don't open another server.

In order to make a respectable server you'll need a solid reason for doing so: a passion. Maybe you have an idea for some never-heard-of features that would make the game more exciting and the coding capabilities to make it happen. Maybe you want to be the most up-to-date server (though NovaRO already filled that void). Maybe your passion is a particular episode and you have some unique ideas to enhance it. Either way, you'll first need to find your passion and have a solid answer for why you're making the server.

As yennar said above, PreRE vanilla has been beat to death. Understand that your only audience are players who have been playing the game for years and years. They've already experienced RO over-and-over. They will tire of the same old thing quickly. Unless you have something innovative, and not just some copy-paste scripts from rAthena's boards, you'll just be wasting your time and anyone's time who decides to join.

Another one of those, who want's to open a new standard server without any solid plans.
wonderful  /swt

If you do not want to waste much effort, don't even bother to open.
Just let it rest and don't waste time. It is way too much hassle for an old game with less and less population.
If you just want to play a bit around with your own server,that's fine. But don't expect to get big anytime, and I think you'll close up some weeks later due lack of interest from your own part.


Get a discord channel

Make some marketing before you start.

Do something different. Vanilla won't do anymore. And vanilla suxx

you won't make many friends with "no job changer","no autoloot" or similar things. People are used to comfort. Give them comfort, but by your own rules.

Try to get android support.

Get correct GM/s & Admins to help you. Make them clear Rules to follow up. Think about what is important and think about what is better to decide per case. State the rules clearly for everyone to see.

Think about the endgame before you start. WoE on low rate servers even with medium population just suxx. People with no endgame get bored quickly and leave.

keep your cool - RO lowlifes, who think everything they say is the holy grail will come to troll. This self claimed "RO elite" will b**** about everything that isn't 100% to their liking. They will b**** and sabotage around until you ban them (then they will create threads here). Ban them as soon as possible, so this chapter is over and done with.

Do not start a low rate server with an exp event. If you start a low rate server, then let it be low rate.

Think about events, other events than the uncreative auto-events. They are the same everywhere, they just suxx

What things should be buyable, what things should get farmed? Woe Stuff? BG Equip? etc.

Think about autoloot and the zeny inflation. Adjust some loots. Think about ways to waste zeny. The economy will be thankful (if there is any)

The cash shop is the cash shop - you'll have it everywhere, and you'll have people everywhere who will quarrel about what you put in. Everyone is different, everyone wants something different. Be clear what you want, or the people will stomp all over you with their "right choice of items"

ah and again: don't do vanilla. Vanilla just suxx. Get creative and develop something new.

The most important part (in my opinion) would be the Cash Shop & Custom Item (if theres any), must not be "Overpowered" lol
also, Costumes are also important (+1 one stat from Cash Shop, and +0 stat from quest/free.. most server have very imbalance Costumes from +3 stat or allstat lol)

another thing, newbies-package.. it should ease their adventure experience (its pretty long journey after all, novice>1st job>2nd job>rebirth h.novice>h.1st job>trans.. +server's low-rate)
thats all from me, good luck!

@commands: @autotrade, @autoloot?
Resetter: Yes
