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.

Glad to see at least someone tinkering with RO still to this day.

Well it's released now.

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