I friend of mine found this video on youtube yesterday. It's about tibias history and specific stories and events regarding Antica. It's like an hour long but its worth the watch! I even got a little depressed by it, when seeing how it was back in the day, and that those days are over.
I learned a lot as well, like houses had keys. And if you lost them, your house was no longer available to you.

The story of the mercenaries was really cool as well.

I wanted to share this to those that experienced those days or to those that are interested in tibias past.
And no, its not my video, nor do I know who made it.
Do you have any other old Tibia stories to share?

After watching these videos, I actually contacted CIPSoft and asked if they'd be willing to let the wider community take a look at the development tools for the early versions of Tibia (pre 7.0 tools) to see what people were working on, knowing that some of those tools had been given to community members to make areas such as Fibula and the Tibianic. Sadly they said no. HOWEVER, they did say that they have archives of all of their old builds, development tools, map versions etc. - they've been really careful about archiving their old work it seems, which is nice, because you hear about a lot of studios that have just lost their source codes.

Wuut, not the servers themselves I guess? That's what I would be rly interested in (source)
I recall they at one time (way back) said so in their official forums that they did not store/archive older server versions. But now it's so long ago I no longer trust my memory lol
