Great idea. All you need now is a high population.

I do wonder if this would run into the same issue that most servers have when they run multiple servers (e.g. a high rate and low rate) in one login: splitting the population. Instead of having one server with 200 players, you end up with a server of 125 and another with 75. Both being worse off. This seems like it would be the case since you're running 2 separate map servers. Except that it's a little easier to switch between them.

I'm guessing that since these share a character server, you'd count the population as a sum? Except it wouldn't really be true because maybe 90% of your population plays on the renewal half of the server and 10% plays on the pre-renewal side. So an onlooking player might see 400 online, but in reality are only playing with 40 people if they were playing pre-renewal.

The sum would be of both, yes. But that can easily be read out and displayed differently since there are 2 character db's.

Ontop of the chat of #global, #support, party, guild are shared and both characters share the same char id, so you're automatically in the party / guild from either of the two.

Well it's released now.

Well thanks to more feedback I adjusted the swap slightly to work overall nicer.

@baserate & @jobrate limit has been raised to 100.

Upon reaching max level* it'll check the rates you've been using to
reach the maximum level. Depending on the rates used you might
receive a permanent bonus to looting for your character.

      EXP Rates used                           Drop bonus
      ----------------------------------------------------------
         1    x               |               50%
         2    x               |               40%
         3    x               |               39%
         4    x               |               38%
         5    x               |               35%
         6-10 x             |               30%
         11-15x            |               25%
         16-20x            |               20%
         21-30x            |               10%
         31-40x            |                5%
         41-50x            |                3%
         51-60x            |                2%
         61-90x            |                1%
         91+  x             |                0%

These rates stack together with a bubble gum but are not boosted by
a bubble gum. This rate is a constant and is automatically applied
to commands such as @mobinfo, @whodrops.

You automatically receive an icon upon reaching the maximum level,
which shows you the permanent loot bonus. However, if the bonus is 0,
you'll not gain any icons.

This special drop bonus is a very rewarding method based on effort.

*This will only work if the class has been rebirthed and / or is the last
possible class for a class tree.

Example: This will not work on a Knight but a rebirthed Baby Knight or
Lord Knight. However it'll work on a max-level Star Gladiator and such.

As someone asked before, if theres a benefit to using lower rates - well here it is now :p
