What is there to show for it? Besides the overworld which I like very much. Even though the majority of it lacks personality and purpose.

Actually now that I think of it I like the levels but I don't like the overworld for what we have.

Be nice, there's a whole lot of Conversion needed to do ANYthing with Classic. Plus it's easy to find a team who wants to make a new project in their own image, much harder to find a team willing to spend hours and hours just going through a few levels...moving the "Say2" part of the script to Serverside...moving the visual effects to clientside...moving on to the next level...

Which is why the castle quest exists - not even the extant team could handle Straight-Converting that big a mess. Not to say anyone liked My version of the castle in the first place...

why the hell add an npc server to begin with if its gonna take many years to finish converting everything? was classic not fine with it's high population back then?

The Team isn't converting anything, other than a few houses. All the old quests are going to be scrapped, to make way for the new generation of quests according to Hell Raven. The only real problem as far as I can see is the customized movement, and the extremely lazy LATs (yeah I said LATs, I won't conform to this new division seperation!) on the server. I know someone will make a comment on how there is progress, just that we cannot see it, but I think it is time something was released that could keep the players interested.

I'm pretty ignorant to this, but I don't see how this is being used as a problem, UN didn't have that problem.

Classic had quite a few short and fun quests, such as Zol's toilet and the forest heart quest.

I'm with you now and restoring old classic.

I've suggested Zol's Toilet be readded multiple times since it'll take like, 3 minutes to convert. No luck so far...

Well, you're right, it would take like 3 minutes to convert except for the parts with baddies.

Assuming you don't try and recover the NPCs that were in the original version but worked so horribly with even clientside-multiplayer that they were practically never seen online - the shield that destroys once it goes toinventory needed to prove to one brother that the other died in the maze, etcetera...
And assuming signs work properly now...

And why hasn't anyone converted the baddies for the past two years?

I tried, but I suck at scripting now...plus I been out of town fairly constantly lately. Plus no two servers are willing to cooperate on a project even though most servers could do a lot with the standard-issue baddies. Plus even if I did pull it off, I'd have to post the graphics and ganis here, then the script on graal.net...'cuz Graal doesn't have a .gpak format or anything cool like that, where I could just post that and you could install the Baddy pak on your server, Boom there are the classes, Boom there are the graphics, Boom there are the ganis, Boom there's the sample level so you can copy and paste as necessary.

Plus there's no standard for damage or projectiles anymore, but that's a minor thing and easily edited even by me - the baddy calls BaddyHitMe(), I change that to PlayerGotHit(), done.

Well, I've suggested the maze rather, which has no baddies at all.

I love that for the last week and a half, Classic has constantly scored the bottom 4 places on the serverlist at peak hours.

Just 4 short years after Tyhm resigned as LAT Admin. Totally. (Hey, if Bush can blame the economy on Clinton...and credit all of Clinton's budget surplus to Bush Sr...)
