I understand I am going to receive mixed
feelings on this decision and I can completely
The current AceM2 Server (in terms of the rate
of exp, drops, mob strength etc) IS NOT MINE, I
had very little say in the original content that
when live (as I was taking a break from the
6-8months of intensive coding that Milo forced
me into ).
I have influenced it since by making mobs harder
(for those of you who remember when Wooma's were
harder than Mino's), removing/adding things here
and there, however, despite me being the direct
firing point for when things went wrong (cause I
reply on forums) and many of the players
referring to me as the boss, the server is not
my own and is not what I wanted in terms of
creating and hosting a server, I have just tried
to make the best of it.
With the above being said, I have always had
most of my own server on my local machine as the
original plan was to break away from the AM2
server and do something in my own light once:
1) The code was in a reasonable state.
2) AM2 was self manageable/didn't require my
As many of you may know this day never came, in
fact I ended up doing more and more work on the
server (in an attempt to keep the community
So my decision is the following
- Close current AM2 Server at the weekend.
- Wipe db's.
- Have 2/3 weeks to work solid on the files and
server and get the following in place:
- Assassin (Is mostly coded up to poison sword,
needs a good test though).
- Quests (the system is already coded, just need
to do some scripts).
- Gameshop (is now coded/translated and working,
haven't implemented due to this decision).
- Trust Merchant (needs to be ported from 2.3).
- Implement some more hunting areas.
The 2/3 weeks without worrying about the server
will provide me with enough time to 1) prep for
a release of server files and 2) prep a v2
I will keep everyone posted on progress of v2,
both on the forums and on facebook.
Again I apologize for the decision, but as I
have said before this is not my server and I
feel as though I have been lumbered with it
rather than enjoying working on it.
I will add a care package npc on current AM2
server which will take note of your character
name and level and if you are above 40-50 which
will reward you with a starter package in v2.
I hope you decide to stay/come back during this
transition and thank you for your support and
input on the server.
