First of all though this is my first post I don’t want to come-off as spammy straight away, so thanks for having me
If you have heared of the MMORPG RuneScape by Jagex, then you will know the addictiveness of playing such a massive online game. Though some of us grow older and don’t have the time to grind for experience and attempt to ‘Complete’ the game. Well after playing the game for many years as a kid and growing through my teen years also playing the game, I eventually, like many turned to what was back then, Scripting the game using Pascal on a a piece of software called Scar. A Community had grown from this and the community was called Kaitnieks.com - though this was eventually shut-down but still lingers in the back of the internet 8).
Regardless, This was the home of what is now known as the RSPS Scene, the RuneScape Private Server scene.
I administrate a community of developers who spend all day doing nothing but re-engineering Servers and Clients to give their playerbase something different to play on, some are RuneScape where everywhere is accessible, everything is obtainable, and all completely Membership-free. Some have established economies over time, some have developed up to the current version of the game, without the thousands of hours of content, but with enough for it to still be enjoyable.
All Private Servers and Clients are written in Java. (sometimes people branch out and try new things like Elixir, Rust or C++/#)
We are always welcoming new members and even more so - people who can actively help teach and enlighten newer members who have just found us straight from playing the real game - and push the scene into the direction it needs to go.
I am Ian O’Neill, and I’m apart of https://rune-status.net/ ; I hope to see you there.
