May I present to you Tibiara 7.4
A server based on TVP (The Violet Project - CipSoft Reverse Engineering Project).
While the engine is based on TFS the most important game mechanisms are self-made by Ezzz which is known for his awesome programming skills. Other than that I can say that there are a lot of changes made in the past 4 month by me. Yeah, by me because I am working fully alone. These changes are mostly map updates, for example there is not a single sprite that is not accurate with Tibia's 7.4 SPR/DAT file as I am using the official tibia 7.4 files.
Pretty sure the map is not 100% accurate, so I won't say so. It can't be because even when some people claim to have a real 7.4 map - it can't be. How could that be possible? The leaked RealOTS files are from 7.72, not 7.4. All we can do is watch tons of TibiCams and compare and compare and compare and compare and compare... all day and night long. (and of course some more little stuff such as refreshing zones but that goes abit to much into matter)
That's what Tibiantis did, that's what I did.
I have watched hundreds of hours of TibiCam files and looked into those parts which are known to be changed but also into other map parts, wiki entries, previous updates, etc. The map will be a exact copy of Tibia 7.4. No port hope but with ankrahmun, no dark cathedrale, no poi dragon lords, etc.
Of course there could be still some map differences but even Tibiantis has them.
This is how the balcony in Fibula should look like:
This is how it looks on Tibiantis: (take a look at the borders)
Althrough I really like Tibiantis and the way their whole server is build, there is still some details that are not 100% accruate. As a perfectionistic person I am looking into the smallest details to replicate them in the exact same way.
For example they (Tibiantis) changed the conditions placement but did not remove the tooltip informations from 7.72 client.
This might be something you, as player, do not care about but I did. That why this has been fixed on Tibiara.
Just like DJ Khaled would say: Another one.
See this little skin related bug hanging down there when moving the window?
Even when I am sure you wouldn't also care about this one. I'd love to have a perfect client, that's why I do care.
Also take a look at the missing buttons which should be there from official Tibia 7.4 client.
This is Tibiara - how it should look like:
Speed instead of Soul Points in skills list:
I have to admit, this one was a bit more complicated to fix, but of course on Tibiara it is looking exactly how it should.
This is how it should look like:
(Pssshhhh... look at the 'Hitpoints' wording, there shouldn't be a space in between)
I know this sounds crazy and isn't even really worth to be talked about as Tibiantis is a great server and I really appreciate the work they doing and probably will even fix related bugs but I just want to show you: I am looking into smallest details, even those you wouldn't care about.
More informations about Tibiara client can be found at the official website of Tibiara (at the bottom of this thread)
There are really tons of changes made which I cannot list all as during the development time I've lost alot of the change logs. All I can say is you will have a different feeling by playing this server. It's just... less OTS.. more Tibia 7.4.
Of course the key features of Tibia 7.4 stays the same. Such as UH traps, non-pz boats, magic level based system, etc.
When it comes to hosting costs I struggled along time with myself. There's always someone that is willing to pay for something he enjoys, which I personally do aswell.
I've end up by implementing a payment service to purchase. The prices for premium are not final at all. Premium system will be just like in Tibia back then. (houses, traveling, spells, etc)
It might be worth to mention that the website is fully written from scratch and based on Bootstrap 5 to make the website even look beautiful on smallers screens such as mobile devices.
Not only the layout is awesome but also the main features like house auction system and guild system is working just like Tibia's. There a few more stuff but I would suggest you to explore that by your own
A lot informations can be found on the website but do not be worried, some are also missing. I am working on this project daily for several hours to make it as perfect as possible.
Once everything is ready there will be an announcement in the server gala section for a test server.
One last thing I'd like to say is this thread is not in ANY competition with Tibiantis. As I already mentioned earlier, the Tibiantis team is great and did/do an outstanding kind of work to provide most accurate informations about old school servers but even they're not 100%.. OTS are just about to have fun and enjoy the game. I respect all of their work and maybe could even point out some bugs that wasn't known so far. I don't want to compare myself to a whole team but one can do great work aswell. If anyone of the Tibiantis team feel offended by any part of this thread I would like you to contact me so I can fit it the best for you.
