[COLOR="#FFA500"]"Escape" is my new project, it's mainly for learning purposes, but I am planning to release it in the not-so-near future. Probably a few months (1-3, if all goes well) of learning and progression until the beta hits.[/COLOR]
[B]Some random information about the project[/B]
The name "Escape" and the slogan "Get away from it all" came from my realization that no matter who you are, life has issues. I know people need a place to get away from it all, and just relax and have a good time.
The point of the server is to be as enjoyable as possible with ease of use, and designed to fit your liking. A main focus will be to have the server replete (full of) options so that you can play to your liking.
As someone who's been through server after server and could never really find a good balance, another point of interest is to listen to suggestions, and do the best to pinpoint the idea as an addition to the server, without royally screwing up anything else.
Finally, the biggest reason I'm doing this is for learning purposes. Naturally it's going to require help, support, and of course suggestions. In the end I hope to make something that everybody can enjoy.
[B]Server Conceptual Outline[/B]
This section's title may confuse some, but I'll straighten that out for you. The "Conceptual Outline" is a very general idea/theme of how it will be possible for every player to have an entirely different playing style, but all together and it not be a totally out of control, archaic mess.
So, the idea is for every player to posses the ability to change nearly every aspect of the game, but still interact with all others, no matter the differences. Instead of presets, they can each be changed individually. Here's a few of the possibilities.
-Rate of gaining points (Vote points, pvm points, skilling points, etc.)
-Keep or lose items on death
Now this probably raises questions like, what if a player makes one account and puts the drop rate to max, then another and puts it to min, then trades items over? Or other questions along those lines. The answer is something I'm keeping to myself and whoever joins me (no, you won't get the secret right away, you'll have to prove yourself to be genuinely experienced and interested in helping) to avoid leeching. The idea is never-before seen and I don't want it to be stolen, then I don't get credit.

[B][U]Now, onto the progression section[/U][/B]
[code]10/8/2013: Source and client downloaded,
all the basics to leeching a server completed.
A little help from [MENTION=88]Gircat[/MENTION] and I got some issues
with finding things in the source straightened
out, and a few minor errors corrected.
Nothing notable, obviously.[/code]
