You want to use a disruptor for that.

darrell from england innitYou sound like you're from London!
I think Marwolf's approach, removing concepts that differentiate players on the basis of time played, is the right approach to reduced botting.
However I don't know if RSC is compelling enough. What else does it have besides the grind that keeps people coming back for more than a day or two?

I occasionally visit the Moparisthebest IRC network to say 'hi', but it has been a while since my last visit.
Here's a Gitter channel though. The best part about this is that it tracks conversation history, so you can come and chat and go as you please without missing out on anything.

yes I have it, as well as like 100+ archived projects. We need a better place than this shit hole to get the community back together.I created https://www.reddit.com/r/RSCDevelopment myself, and I created an initial topic, but I haven't heard from anyone who's interested in participating there.
A total of 50 users would probably mean you'd have a handful on at any time. Not enough to enjoy the game in a multiplayer capacity.
Maybe introducing 'smart' NPCs (i.e., NPCs that are comparable in ability to real players who eat food, chase, etc) would make the game a bit less lonely when there are few real players on to PK with.
Honestly, it's not a viable job unless you're either already unemployed or still living at home for free.
I reckon you'd be lucky to have 50 paying members at any time.
People here develop for fun, and that's fine. But what they forget is that when Andrew Gower built the game in the early 2000s it was his *job* as well as a labour of love.
Everything that came about was the result of thousands of hours of effort.

I give grated parmesan cheese.I think it really is dead this time. This place has been a ghost town ever since the transfer of forum ownership.
Whatever happens, happens.
I don't agree with his policies, but he is the democratically elected leader of the USA and dissenters should honour that fact.
What will annoy me though is any shit heels who were either too lazy to vote on election day, or who 'joke voted' for the guy without genuinely supporting him.
And I suspect that, just like with the 'yes' Brexit vote, plenty of people fall into this category - too lazy to do their civic duty, or too stupid to do it properly.

Or you can download NetBeans IDE and open Noobscape v4 with everything already working.Is it just me, or does your Noobscape repository have loads of game content?
I dont really understand why anyone would delete a Mopman...Weird seeing you with blue global moderator stars.
I just noticed that he de-admin'd everyone else too.

You don't even need to write to file each time you mute/unmute someone - you can just read from file at application start, and write to file at application shutdown.

There's loads of issues with it - every time you enter the garbage collector for a gen2 sweep.
It's a java application, but that doesn't mean it can produce near-zero garbage (and therefore run perpetually with very little garbage collection occurring, and consequently low latency response times relative to its peers).

Have you considered changing networking code so that it isn't stupidly object heavy? If there's one thing we always did wrong in previous servers it was the gratuitous packet object. The amount of garbage collector pressure would have been astounding.

10/10 jme. That pretty much captures the recent sentiment.
I like the fact that there's a new forum. I feel like this forum/community might just vanish overnight because a whimsical administrator (who doesn't have historical ties, skin in the game so to speak) who purchased it decides to just pull the plug.
Well, a vast majority of this topic is easily removable by the rules the section was founded upon, in the old board a lot of you would probably be moderated/muted by this point. Therefore, 3 pages from this topic have been removed, and if you post in the same nature you'll be punished (e.g. one post just said "gay"). Right now, registration works, the tabs work, and the site doesn't even seem slow anymore (?). So for all intents and purposes the forum works, bar searching (which realistically few used anyway and they can use google now). I don't really see how this scenario translates into the community being shipped off in a doomsday scenario to another site against the consent of the site owner, and in a humiliating fashion.I don't really see the problem. When the idea was first floated I specifically asked him if there was any non-compete clause in the contract underpinning the sale of the site. Apparently there was nothing written, and the scope of the escrow service used was limited to transfer of the domain.
I don't see anything illegitimate, let alone illegal.
