See this kind of thing in other games, minecraft for example but for an mmorpg it’s pretty unheard of to have officially supported custom servers.

I think it’d be quite groundbreaking if Jagex were able to offer players the ability to create custom servers, with some rudimentary dev tools & protected assets.

This could lead to unique user generated content like;-
• Themed worlds ( what if the vampires crossed the salve and took over, for example)
• PvP everywhere world
• Roaming bosses world
• Adding additional npcs / items
• etc
• Or just some slight graphical tweaks / rearranging.

Naturally it’d be a massive undertaking and then there’s the matter of how would it connect with standard game servers. But still just wanted to put the idea out there.

I believe this is reason enough to abandon the idea already.

A private server for an MMO.. what a stupid idea. It's the equivalent of asking for all of RS to be made SP. It works for Minecraft because of how Minecraft plays, RS doesn't play the same way Minecraft does.

Yes anything that involves hard work and effort should just get instantly abandoned.

When I say ‘private server’ what I’m suggesting is custom servers where multiple people can join and play the content. I don’t mean you’d be playing by yourself or an isolated group of players. Forgive the bad English but I meant player designed.

Arent there enough "custom servers" as is?

Why do we need more?

If you cbb to use one of the already available ones jagex shouldn't have to waste even more money on you.

There are zero custom servers Draco.
Jagex would make money from this idea, not waste it.

After an initial outlay the running costs would be fairly cheap, meanwhile a wealth of content gets delivered
free of charge
by the players.

Let’s face it when it comes to content the past few years have been rather shakey. Simple things that could make players happy have been overlooked for grand designs that didn’t go down too well.

Personally the only two new additions that I can look back on fondly were ‘Violet is blue’ and the Player owned farm, which I didn’t play much due to losing membership.

Mining smithing rework was decent enough, but I think there were too many missed opportunities due to Jagex having to rework the rework.

Anyway off topic ramblings aside... Custom servers don’t exist, they WOULD generate income, have some bloody imagination / creativity and think what you’d actually do given the chance to improve the game.

Yet what you're asking for is a mincraft styled server which isn't fit for rs.

I mean you're not supposed to be allowed to just spawn/add items as that would ruin the market.

So once again, this isn't needed and wont happen.

I used ‘minecraft’ as an example because of its varied servers that you can jump on and be playing something unique 1 minute HD texture pack medieval theme, then the next minute fakemon.

I’m not asking for all of the minecraft mechanics to be added into Runescape so no item spawning.

These servers would likely run independent of the main game anyway, so no GE access at all.
Sort of like a pseudo beta server, Jagex will be able to see what user created ideas are popular and then implement them into the main game.

At the risk of confusing things further Overwatch’s workshop would probably be a better comparison.
