I agree with you. I'm working on something for the spring. Flushed every bit of that old progression down the toilet. It's got moldy :P

Bruh, like, progression gets fucking old.

It's so easy to smash the same content and streamline to server completion in a week.

It's still boring as shit.

I need to build something cool.

Well, the whole game is setup to progress in some form or another. We only have so many options, unless we trash the basic EQ altogether.
We could always go play World of Tanks, run around killing other tanks, getting your tank better armor and progressing up to a top level
tank. Then get bored and come back and do it with an ogre, instead of Arty

Get someone code wise to help. I always lack ideas to a point where i over think it. i just prefer building it than thinking about it.

I'm down to do the codewise shit.

I can't build worlds for shit, and suck at ideas without a massive amount of drugs.

Give me two weeks Maze and I'll see if I can come up with something.

When you scroll up and down that server list on the forum here, it's hard to close your eyes without having "PoP" burned in your mind
from seeing it so many times. It's like the standard model of the EQ vehicle comes off the assembly line with all the basics you see
on that list. PoPower, auto this and that, cruise, tilt, etc., with a trunk full of raid bosses and a gas tank full of experience.
Just exactly how many times do people want to kill Naggy, Vox and Quarm ?
When it comes to "new ideas" for a server, it's impossible to get an inclination of what could attract a (continuous) population.
It's really not a matter of struggling to come up with a unique idea, it's a "meeting of the minds" between players and new servers.
Out in RL, you can do market research before you get something going, but with the overall player base here, you have a better chance
of getting the "SMS recovery" to work, than hearing from the general player base. The only perceptive guess I can come up with, so far,
is many of them just may be looking for something different to do.
So all you can do is take that idea, run with it and spend several months developing it to see if it turned out as a bad idea :P

You and me both.. Honestly the reason I haven't done anything in years is I see the current populations of custom servers and it doesn't look like there's much of a market for it. Like I said though I've been working on my shit off and on never really stopped but lacked motivation.

I have been completely reworking classes from the ground up.. Haven't decided if I want to do all the classes or just lock players to maybe 8 or so. The latter will probably be much easier to manage but I feel like that will turn people off.. I'll make a thread about it in server discussion and I'll see how it goes.
