Can anyone help me with some basics?

Question

Hey, basically I would really like to start up an RSPS, not for public use yet, however.

I have a few basic questions and it'd be great if you could help:
1. What are revisions? I know it defines a server what items it has etc.. but how do I see what items are in a revision and stuff like that, also where could I download a revision for an RSPS to edit?
2. How should I begin to learn coding? I'm all for looking up guides on youtube and trying to clone stuff on a blank servers, that'd be ideal but I don't know where to get a blank server.
3. I have no intention of opening a server so far, I merely want to have a blank canvas (kind of) where it is just like an older version of RS but without any pre-existing shops or NPC's, as I wish to code them myself. Is this possible? How so?
4. Could you refer me to a beginner's guide of some sort?

That's it for the moment, any help would be much appreciated<3

1. Revisions are basically the (current) version of RuneScape. There are some dumps of the item lists for some revisions located here and other places. You can check out the RSPS Downloads section of the forums. If you're just starting out, 317 or 474 are the easiest revisions.
2. There's a vast amount of tutorials on Java on the web or books. You can also check the Tutorials Section for the RSPS to also help.
3. There are a good amount of PI sources out there which are blank, or have very few NPCs/Shops, etc, coded in, therefore, allowing your self to explore those possibilities.
4. Here at RL, there is a Tutorials List on the Forums as well as at the Navigation Bar, leading to some useful tutorials.

Side tip: As well, it's preferred to use an IDE, such as Eclipse (google for the DL) as it helps a lot and is really user-friendly.

[B]1)[/B] Revisions are a certain point of the game's development. The higher the revision, the more current the development is.

[b]2)[/b] If you actually want to be decent, there's a lot of good places to learn the basics of Java as opposed to learning through RSPS. I recommend Trey's guide, located [URL="http://www.runelocus.com/forums/showthread.php?34729-The-Basics-of-Java"]here[/URL]. It'll teach you the essentials, and help you a LOT throughout your RSPS career.

[b]3)[/b] You could find a scratch source, which I'm sure there are a few of here, or you could create the server from scratch yourself; however that would require a significant amount of knowledge in the field. I'd search around for blank/scratch sources on here, with whatever revision you want to use.

[b]4)[/b] Not sure what kind of guide you want, but I've already linked you to the basics of Java, which will be much more useful than the basics of "RSPS COdingz".
