Given that I will be playing a relatively important role in the server, I thought it be wise to introduce myself to the community. Now, some of you may have heard via Discord, but there's a new developer in town! And that's me - Gemu. A bit about myself in regards to my position: I've been developing Java for the better half of 14 years, all completely self taught and not in a professional setting; so I may not be the best for someone with 14 years of practice. It's always been a rather interesting hobby of mine, and certainly the one that's stuck with me the longest. However, as far as 'professional work' goes, the best I've got is I've done many years of freelance work during my spare time. Needless to say, RuneScape private servers are not professionally designed and there will be no issue with my navigating the source.
My activity might dwindle a bit, however. I will definitely not be the most active developer y'all will have, as my schedule doesn't allow for a copious amount of free time at my disposal. Notwithstanding, I will ensure I do my best to be a rather active part of the community. Being apart of the community also makes me want to point out - I will be playing the server as if I were a normal player. Even if I have developer rank, or admin-related commands available to me, I will not use them. I believe that if you can make a server others will enjoy playing, you as well can enjoy playing it; and should enjoy it! As of this moment writing this post, I'm currently combat level 24 I believe with around 40 fishing and cooking. I've not yet to play much, but I'm learning the server bit by bit, using the "Hard" x5 experience rates.
So far I'm enjoying the server design for sure. It has a bit of a private server feel for sure, but it also is very reminiscent of actual RuneScape. And I enjoy that very much. The majority of servers I've ever made in the past always went for a 'RuneScape feel', and avoided the private server feel. This server is definitely doing that well, while not making it tiring to train. I can't wait to help provide consistent updates, help and watch this community grow, and meet all of you!
