I've been putting some of my spare time into developing on this project. There are however quite a bit to do. The development is kind of divided into five parts; Server, Client (should be good), Discord Bot, Forums & Player Functionality (highscores etc), Admin/Mod CP.
My time is a bit limited, so juggling between the five "categories" is kinda hard. However, I've been preparing the server so it authenticates using the forum account. I've also changed around the loading of NPC and item definitions, so that they're stored in MySQL, rather than JSON. So the server itself is ready to start planning/adding the content, testing it, and correcting potential bugs.
For the coming hours I put into the project, I will mainly be focusing on creating the tools that is absolutely necessary for the staff members to maintain the server. Which means the basic functionality of the Admin/Mod CP. There is a lot of work that needs to be done on that, and I have no ETA.
When the necessary tools are done, I'm going to focus on the forum-side of things, like implementing highscores and other features that the website should have. While doing that, me and @Zkiller will try to do as much content as we can, and plan as well as we can.
This announcement is just to keep you in the loop of where we are, and telling you that we're actually still working on Exorth. Once we get to the content creation stage, we'll likely share screenshots and other media from the progress. That should be more interesting than me talking about backend functionality that most people will never have to deal with anyway.
I thought I should update you. We've not made a lot of progress. The only developer we currently have is myself. However, we have picked a base, and we're going to be changing stuff around in that, to make our version of Exorth. This won't exactly be a remake. I don't exactly remember Exorth, for the simple fact that I wasn't around then.
Credits and what not around the base will come later. We will probably add a page here, on the site, for credits. Some people have done some great work before us, some people will probably be doing a lot of great work in the future as well (at least if everything goes as we hope).
Details around how the server will be, what you can find, what you can expect and so on, will come at a later point. Currently, we haven't done enough planning to release any details about the server itself. However, I can say that we'll be trying to make something unique, something that works well.
There is no deadlines or ETAs what so ever. Not even a promise that something worthy will get out. However, despite no promise from me, I'm not the only one running this project. Also I enjoy developing, and I'm quite sure we will get something worthy out.
Hope to see you around!
I'm currently working on getting this forum up and running smoothly. Getting them nicely looking, and generally just making it all good around the website end of things. As well as integrating this with Discord (bot) and what not.
I'm aiming for a smooth integration between Website <-> Server <-> Discord. Hopefully, it will all be consistent, smooth, easy to use and nice! At least, it'll be an attempt to do something not many private servers have done before us.
I'm also aiming to complete my own forum software. That however will take shitload of time. A beta could potentially be released at a later point. The users end of my forum software is close to done. Which means, all I really have to do is make a integration between SlickBoard (my forum software) and IPB. That way users can post/read/browse the site from my forum software, while administrating happens from IPB. Well, those who prefer can of course use IPB over my forum software.
You might say this a lot of this stuff will be overkill for RSPS. While that is true, programming is also my passion. I consider this fun and will be doing this to have fun, while I get more experience and learn new things.
I hope that we can actually get this project up, succeed. Become a big and loving community, that has fun together.
