    I won't agree with you here.

    DREAM BIG, OR GO HOME.

    The huge world outline is like canvas, it's inspiring, the areas just fit themselves in like puzzle when you have time to think about how do you want the world to look like - you can just block out unfinished parts with like like ... a bridge with boulders on it, that get "removed" by the nearby peasants once you finish the area, or whatever else

    Starting small and building on causes people to make maps that are made of 30+ same-sized islands, which as a whole just looks crappy.

    People who are to give up, WILL give up either way - be it building the world from scratch at once, OR starting small and then giving up after X update

    Good tips!

    Yeah those super custom ots are usually fun, but they also get boring after a few days with the alchemy, mining, the hundred other features.

    Interesting map (can even use the tibia mainland and go from there if no time to make a whole map), vocations can be a bit tweaked to fit their jobs better but not too much, nice rates = perfect for me :)

    One of the best thread I have ever seen here in otland.net! If some "creators" of servers... give pause to analyze these mentioned points, we would have a better quality of otservs :cool:

    I disagree a lot with this post. I think deaming big is important, wether you make it to your goal or not is not what matters. Attempting to create an epic project form scratch provides a massive amount of knowledge for any developer.

    I've have to dream big and go against what everyone says a couple of times in my life, and I do not regret a thing, that's how I started my company.


    Please note I do not disagree in starting small, I think projects should be tested each step of the way, start with core features and then get to the details, first nail it, then scale it.

    I watched this tutorial when I first came to OtLand and it taught me all the basics to getting a server set up:
