As you guys know, me and a few others keep talking about "the new map", but none of you really know what we're talking about or what we mean. The new map is essentially a 1:1 scale version of a continent taken from the popular MMO World Of Warcraft, more specifically Outland: Spoiler This map is computer generated, and touched up by a bunch of us here at Aurora. Now, the concept, gameplay and features of the server: The concept is to present a more RPG-like experience to players, using things such as custom plugins from our talented devs, implementing things like custom mobs, including some rare custom items from these mobs, and a unique class system. This is to provide a fresh feeling of gameplay and progression while playing on the server. The server will feature: A class system, at first you will only be able to pick from the base classes of Mage, Warrior and Rogue, don't worry, though! More are on the way, as mentioned here A resource value system, most of the world isn't editable at random by players, instead each separate zone will have resources completely unique to it, meaning that theyre highly contested and sought after, don't worry though, they respawn after a long period of time! Minigames! You guys were wondering what's been happening with the minigames server, well we've implemented a few minigames into the factions server! The core gameplay will be factions, but there will be fun and engaging minigames for players to play when they're not brutally murdering eachother! On release we'll have a fully edited and touched up HungerGames arena! A player-housing system, players will be able to purchase areas of land in places that will normally not be editable, each piece of land is hand-placed for scenery, and such. Here's some examples of the zones that you'll be able to explore and scavenge! Each with it's own recommended level (which, by the way, comes with our class plugin) Spoiler Our Hungergames arena: if you guys have any questions, or suggestions, feel free to ask!
