Hello,

We would like to invite you to join a test server for our OT. It's a mid rate "fun" server with a fully custom map, the only quest kept from rl tibia or any other well used map is PoI currently.

The main things we need testing are the exp rates, the custom monsters and quests and general overall feedback from the feel of the server before going live. We will also be paying to have a website built before going live.

We will offer some sort of reward to those that join us to help.

Please join our discord: Join the Xalyria Discord Server! (https://discord.gg/mst2Vg7vUA)

IP / website: xalyria.com
Client: 10.98
Hosted in UK

Thanks,
Crunch & Miss

Just thought I would post a few screen shots of some quests and other mapping bits to give you a feel for the style 😊

10.98 servers are not really popular with a custom map player base. i personally would skip.
Good luck.

How come? What would be the version a custom map would work well with? We started this ot a quite a few years ago and just upgraded to the most recent tfs when revisiting it, didn’t really think it would make a massive difference except that it wasn’t 8.6

If you do want to make a custom server, 8.6 would be the way because it has more options. If you do as well want a player base on 8.6 then its mostly brazilians. You can see that by looking on otservlist servers. Almost every 8.6 is hosted by brazilian owners and their player base is based on sms shop, just like any other custom server. i enjoy more pvp than pve and thats why i dont enjoy customs. However if you do want to make a 10.98 server then rl map is the way. Add the newest updates of rl tibia but keep the 10.98 client. if you advertise it enough it will bring alot of players. just look at ezodus for example. All tho making a custom server may bring players, it wont last long.

you are very wrong and biased, most of the 8.6 players on like this version because of elfbot, there is no such reason as "it has more options", as for rl map I'd recommend latest client, but for custom server I indeed suggest 10.98 as it is really stable and updated.

things that 8.6 does NOT have:

  • mounts
  • lots of new sprites for creatures, items, objects, outfits etc
  • market
  • browse field
  • boss reward system (okay, that can be done in any version)
  • smart click feature
  • elfbot 😁
  • in-game store
  • store inbox
  • Ultimate Mana Potion, Ultimate Spirit Potion, and Supreme Health Potion
  • wrap/unwrap
and that is only up to 10.98!

Not really, i believe 8.6 has more potential with customs because of sprites and map designs that are already out there. Many anime servers are based on 8.6 version.

yes that is true but many people dislike it because of elfbot. All those scripts with auto push etc etc ruin experience for some players
there is no such reason as "it has more options"
it do tho. you can do alot of things with 8.6 rather than using 10.98. i prefer 8.6 if you are making customs and leave 10.98 for rl based servers if you want a "big" player base. custom servers are not really played these days thats why you dont see alot of them in server lists. still its more of a taste based server and i prefer rl maps with a touch of your own ideas, arena for warmodes where you can change exhausts and which potions you can use.

Appreciate the feedback although I'm still confused as to why you believe 8.6 has more features than 10.98 - could you please elaborate?

We started this OT around 9 years ago and have worked on it off and on for the duration. When we recently picked it back up, we upgraded to the latest 10.98 TFS. There is a large custom map and the only real Tibia quest kept is POI and moderately altered versions of Annihilator and Demon Helmet Quest (though the concept and rewards remain the same). We have created various custom quests including solo, group and outfits to keep the adventures coming and also have a lot of new fun projects on the go - one of which is our carnival that we hope to open along with the official release of the server.

Both of us are quite interactive and will always request feedback from our player base to implement accordingly.

It seems now days that all OTs are based around real life Tibia maps and the custom element of exploring new areas and monsters has all but died out. Sure, there are an abundance of new features available on these clients and we are still expanding what this OT can do, but to be dismissed by the client version without testing what is on offer brings some confusion. I'd love to hear more on why you think this wouldn't work? Also, if you think there are further selling points to this server that can be advertised, please let me know. Like I said, any and all feedback is welcomed and we take the potential player base's opinion into consideration on everything.

A lot of time and care has gone into making this server over the years and to finally have a chance to share all of that hard work with others is not only exciting, but very rewarding...especially when you've put so many hours into delicately placing each border and tuft of grass (as the mapper) 😉

My 2 cents it to just put it online and deal with the small playerbase. Number 1 error here from custom server developers is overpolishing a big turd for thousand years to launch some already massive game to suddenly find out they ignored a lot of stuff and that it has tons of issues. And number #2, banking into an insane player base while advertising to the wrong public, then find themselves with a really small playerbase over no real marketing plan that mostly involved advertising to people that are looking for pirate Tibia, and not custom games.

Another tip is to ignore random poster with 7 total posts that want you to ditch your idea to host the real map he is looking for.

Thanks for you feedback, i agree on your first point and that’s why we decided to release the server soonish. We feel there is enough things to do and can update as we go with feedback instead of trying to predict the future and add every single outfit, item and monster right away. There’s a couple more things we want to get done and we will use release it properly and see if anyone is interested in playing it.

In my opinion, if you don't want botters in your server, you should host a tibia 12 version (without possibility to play with tibia 10). But if you don't care about botters, tibia 8.6 will bring you more players. I personally dont like tibia 8.6, I prefer tibia 12 client, but as mentioned above, tibia 8.6 has magebot and elfbot and this is the main reason it's the most played version.

We won’t be going down to tibia 8.6, we will launch the server as 10.98 and look at upgrading to a 12 version in the future, which was probably always going to be the intention. Thanks for the feedback
