Would there be a demand for Custom server like this

(1/8) > >>

Lioran:
I always thought it would be nice to rework Pre-renewal in a way that doesn't change the core mechanic of the game and revamp most of the areas.
For this it would requires an extensive knowledge of every class and game mechanic which I have built over the years.
I'm sure these kinda of server exist but i highly doubt that much thought goes into them(personnaly not seen any). Considering the amount of people I meet that have comparable amount of knowledge. Server owners just seem to throw random stuff together and not really think about the overall picture.

I'd like to see a server based around Theory crafting kinda like the path RO was going a few updates before renewal was a thing.
I'd personnaly revamp most of the areas to make them more enjoyable, Make the first class part more enjoyable with actual Boss for low lvl that give decent exp.
an exp system like renewal has. Revamp stuff like Blacksmith forging. Rework most of the boss get rid of easy boss like phree make boss not super hard but so they require
some coordination. Maybe even go as far as to have a progression system for updates.
Maybe change the behavior of some skills such as provoke to actually have some Agro effect on boss so pure melee DPS can actually participate in MVP since this
game basically forbide the use of melee class in parties unless its the tank and dps at the same time which I personally think is a flaw.

Also when you think about it tons of map are never really used by anyone other than to get to a certain destination.
Like take Clock tower for exemple. When is the last time you saw someone active on floor 1.
When is the last time you hunted clock tower manager. What if he was just a boss kind like Tendrillion is.


Or just all those MVP that people think, why would anyone hunt this boss it doesn't drop anything usefull for anyone.
And give a purpose to most drop from MVP. I see people often think some piece of equipment is useless but sometimes you can do amazing things
with those gears and it'd be nice to have some more of that(hence the theory crafting).

Game is already a big game and could feel much bigger by reworking tons of Areas and monsters without even adding any new areas.
There is just so much that can be done with what already exist to make it even more fun to play.

What do you guys think? Any server out there trying to accomplish that? I'd be willing to participate in that.

Bue:
You sound like Blinzer.  /heh

I think this idea is share by a lot of people, but no one has ever been able to do it. I have seen people consumed by the scope of their work (and ego), stuck at a roadblock in their skill set, overwhelmed by the technology stack, and so on ...

Are you working on a prototype?

I don't know who blinzer is.
I don't have any prototype but I have looked into it. Biggest worry I got is if I was to start working on this and end up having a dead server in the end. I have no idea how to advertise anything.
There is probably a way to work on this incrementally so you can have content being released overtime and judge interest at the same time.
I've worked on my own game before but i had to deal with making some art, designing rooms, programming, balancing and all the other stuff all alone. It was just impossible to do everything alone. Along with trying to get people interested in this random project without being an obnoxious guy that advertise his stuff randomly on forums and stuff. It just wasn't working.
So working on something like this would basically only be programming.

Bue:
I have been working on a project for 8 years without ever releasing a stable build. There is always a risk of failure on a project. However, I do know that there is always a demand for servers with regular content updates and a dedicated team. I think as long as you can provide that, people will play on your server and donate.

I think your idea is doable as long as you don't go too far down the rabbit hole. With the right skill set, the only thing you have to risk is time (and money). If you can't do that, then I wouldn't recommend moving forward.

Blinzer:
yep. just sit back and relax bud, you don't have to lift an inch, big daddy blinzer has you covered. release date is the same day that kingdom hearts 3 comes out

BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE!
