Hello! I'd like to show off my version of Rookgaard. I edited the version before new orc camp, spiders and wolfs because I hate how it allows You to walk in only once and how it tears island making baorders. I used auto border so I'm prepared to be harassed : ) !

This are changes on surface


0. Let's start! Ow...


1. I redesigned water with lake, dams, and how water makes mill work, also added swamps nearby


2. Other places were also redesigned so that when You walk on rock you will not stuck there and you could use emergency exit


3. More fields and fruit trees, village is now better fortified


4. There is also underwater place which makes really hard quest to obtain during drown


5. Trolls also recieved some king of underground village, more dangerous monsters appeard


6. I think nature and relations between it are my really strong side, orcs are destroying mountain to build a wall


7. Town and characters there are more connected to each other and each gives quests to solve or help


8. I splitted this isle You can take Your vocation and skill quicker but only in town or You can decline vocation and as no vocation explore whole island (so that knight with 70 sword won't be able to exp in mino hell)


9. There are many new secret locations and quest chests number is about 96 now


10 Shortcuts will help navigate and walk back from dead end (so that e.g. you can walk out of goblin hell in the city or from bear cave near light house)


11. I added few stories to explain plague of skeletons and magic items


12. As a rookstayer i did my best to keep the spirit of the isle i once played and now is lost.

with
13. Quest are funny (I hope!) marked, and each got special message (yes, lots of work :)


14. Parts of island nearby different continents on my server are either more sandy, snowy or wooded


15. The hardest part was to limit myself with places so they all will fit togeter to old places, I think I didn't make it with swamps, so they oustand a little of other auto bordered places.


16. You will learn the secrets or death :)


17. In woods are many traps, new monsters have reduced loot of items not fitting the isle


18. Some secrets are really hard to play but You can drop many valuable trash from this monsters


19. Few mounts and more addon items are available for all free accounts, there is no point of having pacc on my Rookgaard


20. Details like well light entrance or water spot underneath with floating bucket or hanging rope


21. Town buildings has rooms to rent, but some are owned by the citizens


22. Shops are rearanged, new thing to buy and sell for good prizes to reawrd hard effort or just collecting herbs or shrooms on map


23. More creatures means more exp, so people could stop playing in one location for days


24. Houses are in good, represent locations so you could brag you loots ! :) also Lee'delles sell now furniture

25. setting light down to 10-15% will unleash cool light effects, torces are now dropped also by rotworms and orcs (you also have light spell)


26. You can see that tere is still place to explore from other location


27. Once again no pacc area, just no vocation or vocation, which you can change in temple :)


28. There is now point vising both lilly and hyiacynth


29. Added few raids really hard to play alone so it forces a cooperation somehow...


30. From raids You can get valuable items, lowest chance of getting something is 20% from boss, so you shouldn't be resigned as on normal Tibia


31. No one is safe after rat plague!


32. You can be cured by cipfried for free, healed to max health for 50 gp or use shrine to add few health for 2 gp, it is really fun


33. And the monsters with cool powers like ice storm, troll who shoot spear, or jellyfish which burns and poisons at once!


34. Experience rate is unique i guess, it makes hard getting level up on 30 lvl then it boosts expereience by 20x+ for 9 levels, so you get reward for hard play


35. Of course that female druid addon requires polar bear paws, and it is easier to get with skinning knife!


36. A dragon!? Why not!?


37. I think town looks more friendly now


38. Besides arena there are also places to play with dice, chess and XO!


39. Fishing isn't something that only swamp trolls does


40. Old Obi died and his apprentice it handling smithy, he can also creat new helmets!


41. Hyiacynth Live colser to the nature than ever


42. and more rockes are inhabited


43. Secrets secrets, secrets...


44. Nature, nature, nature.


45. Few references to real servers...


46. Few quest are harder than before


47. Playroom, when killing bothers You


48. ...


49. Orcs has almost finished!


50. The last one... Main street with few refreshes

It will be probably for 5 vocation (because I couldn't make sixth ^^)
For people who would like to end quickly withrook they will change vocation in temple and play in rookgaard city dungeons, with spells and skill rate increased. But they can't pass through bridges as only no vocation are allowed there
For people who would like to try playing as no vocation there will be teleport erasing their vocation and scale their skills like on dawnport:)

Exp rate seemed too high for me also, but the difficulty is also increased, after like 30 hours of playing I had 60 level, and it is still difficult to kill dragon, clear kraknaorcks, or mino hell. It is really hard to get 10 level, I mean it =D
It is made to prevent visiting every place in 30 minutes and got bored

It can be changed any time, i played with exp rate dropping to x1 on each 10ths level but it was painful, not what I wanted :)

The server itself is quite interesting, but not only the exp rates seem too high for an RPG server, they also just do not make sense at all. On level ~10 your exp rate is ~9x, on level 11 it's ~1x, then on level ~12 it's ~11x. Why would you want to make the exp rates jump so rapidly in both directions? I cannot imagine any valid reason for this.

Exactly how it works. 9 easier levels are reward for obtaining harder and longer 10th level, they will increase You HP and MP quickly but won't allow to obtain 40 levels in one day. You will be bored when You stuck on 30th level and after you pass it, it gives you boost, new energy when you see how quick You gain levels and how much exp you gain from monsters. It works for your motivation, and with 50 more health and mana you can stuck in another place =D

On 11th level (reward for harder 10th) there is light spell to learn
on 21th there is healing spell to learn
on 31th there is haste spell

Anyway I understand that targeted x15 exp on 150 level could be too high it was originally set at x10 but experience for each 10th level was x1, now it increases (for level 20 x2 level 30 x3) it will not make You stack.

Rookgaard is only a beggining part of my server so stages must work for mainlands also :)
I figured out that obtaining each gear, visiting each place, making each quest, opening each quest, killing each monster (except raids) will take about this 30 hours of pretty nice fun for people who got bored with real rook now :) I'm kind of unsure if making this time longer is good idea, well I will be aware of it now, thanks! :)

I don't really like modern Tibia versions for different reasons as hotkeys and new sprites with a bunch of details and colors that loads too much the screen, even when I don't like how OP wants to setup the server <rates, vocations things>, I do wanna test this map. Looks pretty cool, but overall, fun.

Good luck. Would be interesting to see some teaser from mainland if you finish it.

THANKS! but... I should explain this one better, only Rookgaard on my server will be enchanted version of any map, other places are made from nothing, they will focus on know types like orc fortece or elvish city in woods but i don't see point of making desert elves or underwater orcs ^^

This is mini map from yesterday, Rookgaard seems smallest, and least diversified place

Do you mind sharing your map? I want to fool around in rookgaard with a group of friends on a server we set up for ourselves

63. Refreshed swamps


64. My gf said "all cementary looks same for me: abandoned, make one where somebody takes care of..." here You go!

66. Trolls are more inteligent and social. They also shoot spears.


67. I couldn't understand how did wheat grow in cave and why wheat? It is road to dragon, and I made it more guarded and swampy.


68. I was instructed to make chuch drowning in the sea. After first version I saw disappointment: I put too much stuff and rocks with roof didn't match, I hope this one looks better :)
I had problem with square waves and sand underneth so I hide them under rocks.

OKAY THAT WOULD BE PROBABLY ALL SCREENS
Now 5 maps to give overlook on my whole work because I love maps!

M1: Changes between old and new rookgaard, this is what Cipsoft created and changed. I hate how it give only a few changes and closed many paths, with also pointless walls of village and bushes:


M2: I was editing the old Version, and rebuild rebuilded places couple of times. Look how my work has changed Rookgaard:


M3: Once again: difference between start and final version


M4: Great huge screen compiled from 30 screens ZOOM


M5: Small map showing all paths with shortcuts and places, prooving how open Rookgaard after my changes is



I think this is last screen, maybe I will create some movie clip and put it here... but yes... editing this isle is finished! :)
