i think you should just add into the client when u first make a character a tutorial option that would pop up asking if your a new player and if you click yes it teleports you to a noob town with maybe 2 easy quests and some practice areas. then have a warpstone in town with a sign by it saying when your ready to leave double click this or something.

Well, I am not doing a popup since that requires code.

Everyone starting on the newb map is fine. It could be just like Steeltide newb island with several newb quests and a tutorial area. Then it would have an easy access warp stone off the map to the main map.

But yeah, multi-players on newb, just 1 allowed on main. Will be hard to really enforce though unless an admin on a lot. It just brings up all the issues we dealt with a decade ago with multis and it is like, in my head, who cares, have as many as you want. When you spread your time out, it is your players that suffer and never excel to higher levels.

but if you have a smithing character standing on an anvil making gold bars while your fighter is off levelling then it isn't your time that matters.  plenty of people have bots for this game(someone even posted screenshots on here once) so can't really call it that.  also isn't there already code in place to stop multis?

There is code but it requires admin supervision to keep it from locking legit multi-accounts from house holds or shared IPs. But it useless really since anyone can say they have a brother that plays with them but they are actually 45 years old, living alone in a dive apartment, eating old pizza and drinking stale beer. AND ... they need a shower... eeewww.
But even that code is bypass-able with minimum effort while they think about taking a shower.

...can't...resist: Mickey in 5(?) years ;D

I don't think any actual kids play this game...which is probably a good thing from what you sometimes see global chat.

also yay to the new server, is it going to be your basic style server or are you adding anything new?

Would it be a lot to ask to reroll all the rune combinations and seed<>skillpotion types? For example, preventing mining worm alchemy abuse

that and
can you also get rid of some of the molds?  I know you like that style but maybe limit it to tool/weapon/armor instead of having 1 for each weapon skill and 4 for armor.
would make a great server!

Since the day he implemented the crucible/mold system, I have always said it was terrible. I mean, you made a click heavy system even more tedious with that retarded update. Come on dude.

Mickey if you don't take the time to fix monsters in v2. Opening a server will be a waste of you posting this game anywhere. Let me explain for the 8th time.

On v1 monsters didn't auto Determine stats.
So lets do an example.

Ice Soul
Level 108   Life 300   stats xxxxxx whatever
Meaning you can adjust the life to lvl ratio to fix exp for proper levels.

On v2 the monster inis auto determine.

Ice soul level 108   Life 500-600

What this means is no mater how you mix and match stats the exp ratio really wont ever peak much over 2.5-3k a hit. Witch is fine if your end game goal on a server is around 55-60. You can actualy out def a player who is training attack by alot.

To fix this you must go threw your v2 inis completely and fix monsters manualy.


Good Luck

you missed the whole point of my post. the idea that a lvl 70 gives the same exp as a lvl 100+ is broken. gives no point to poaching higher lvl mobs. And its not a newb server its a phantasy world with a newb starting island for new players.

feels weird, but I had to tell someone the same thing.  a server for just noobs would quickly die as they wouldn't have a clue what they're doing and would quit.  a newby friendly server is for everyone.  if current players have no reason to play they won't, and the new players would once again have no clue what they're doing and leave...

I'm never a fighter, but servers need to be balanced!

im willing to admin on the new server i'm really active can do ini's i'm basically done as a player until i see a major overhaul of the game i'm tired of doing the same thing 15 times over lol. I like teaching new players the game and helping them build effective characters to do what they need done. im willing to contribute my time and overall a good vibe and hand (unlike most vets)
