People go where the RP is, and that is Bendir Dale. Elwyn's become involved in more personal quests and DM events standing there than has she's ever stumbled upon randomly adventuring or soloing bosses for the 1000th time. It's also more realistic to believe that with everything our PCs have been through that they might prefer shooting the shit once in a while instead of saving the world for the 1,000,000th time.

Well! Syl is butthurt cause she need to stand around the little shits! :lol:

I get what you mean. It is just sad Amia is not as vibrant and active it used to be where you could met people on the road or just run into an event anywhere.

Also, as an aside, when are we going to quit bashing Bendir as "the place where people stand and do nothing?" Because it isn't. It's the place people stand because it's active.

Developing a personal story for the character and developing his or her relationships. It's not a negative thing, nor has it ever been.

Make an effort to join and start something, and don't get butthurt if no one wants to.


And that. I like Social RP almost more than all this saving the world stuff. I even like more Mundane stuff more than "OMG THE WORLD IS ENDING... AGAIN!"-Stuff.

When you put it that way...yes it is very charming and rustic . It is real in a way and it keeps us occupied while we wait for other things or plot on other characters. Budly I think has evolved a lot as a character since I returned in 2016 because of the people around him.

Only that it is far more complicated than we imagined!

It is a NWNX plugin that makes the 1.69 server able to speak to the NWN:EE client. It is available on Linux: http://nwnx.org/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=2528 and shouldn't be too hard to port to Windows, I can help if interested.

I'm sure you'd be making alot of people happy if you built a win x64 dll that was compatible with the 1.69 nwserver nwnx2?

That's the idea but I don't know any other server that would use it so I would like a confirmation that it will be used and someone will be able to integrate it... before spending hours to do the port. The easiest way to contact me is on discord, I am on the Sinfar one: https://discord.gg/hEn6y9W or the official NWN one.

After I'm home from work today, I will join the discord. If you convert this code so it can be used, I personally assure you that I will work with you to help Amia integrate this solution and debug any issues that may arise.

Can fork it here too: https://github.com/ravenmyst

Is Amia swapping over to EE? If so, what is going to be done with the haks?

In a nutshell, swapping over would take literal days of dev time and effort that we do not have at this point, and would still be much of a gamble, judging from the current EE numbers. What we are currently investigating is a "gateway" server that would allow people with EE to log onto Amia through the new Beamdog client. Nothing is happening to our HAKs.

Kind of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Love me some Amia, but a lot of old school Nwn's buddies are trying to restart up a Wheel of Time server based on the book's by Robert Jordan on EE. I stopped playing there because the servers either died out or became Ghost Town's. I have really high hopes for this new one, especially since the book's are going to be turned into a TV Series and i think that alone will bolster numbers through the roof. My time on Amia my be near an end. :(

Was there any thoughts or progression on this? I've heard of Arelith having an upwards of 200 players on it at times. I'd love to see some potential new players. If there is anything I could do also, please don't hesitate to contact me.

If I can do anything to facilitate the move or whatever to get the people here, let me know. I am at your disposal. I've messed around with the toolset making areas before, but have zero coding skills. I even have a replica of the Old Bendir dale, including every tree, rock and hill.

There will be an EE update soon, so I am waiting to update the plugin to that new protocol or the current one will only be usable for a few weeks.

Considering that Sinfar isn't even on the latest EE build, probably not looking likely soon. I think Beamdog even released another version of NWN too.

Every time they (Beamdog) update the build, any existing work that goes with making the two versions (1.69 and 1.8x) communicate, goes to hell, FYI and is a blank slate of a mountain of tedious work to get it working as it was. (i.e. enigma machine)

Raven, would it be possible to coordinate with the Beamdog team to assist in transferring Amia over to NwN EE?

Our plan is to establish a gateway to EE with the kind help of Mavrixio which makes it compatible with 1.69. We are not planning on moving to EE for reasons that we explained earlier.

I personally do not think that it would be in Beamdog's best interest to give us aid in any form seeing that it would require them to put halt on their update and expansion releases. Seeing that the game they released was practically incomplete their way of business is to earn more by further developing it and make the owners of the game buy the newer expansions. That's a standard business policy for the market and quite effective so we cannot really blame them for having that policy.

If this plugin doesn't work has consideration been given to just saying "hell with the scripts" and trying to just see if amia will work on EE without even worrying about the content and trying to fix it as the ability and staff and talent join the server and as you guys identify where problems communicating with nwn and the server occur?

I know it seems crazy but it was just a wild thought.

It's on the tables honestly. Right now we're still eager to explore the porting avenue solely because of what Amia is, that obviously having to manually remake a lot of it is not only cumbersome but an actual big risk of not paying off. But it isn't something discarded.

Our player count has been recovering lately so we know there's growing demand for it. This is something actively discussed DM and Dev side and things we're putting stuff in place for.

It may genuinely be worth considering ways to re-implement if need be. I know EFU currently lacks its custom spells because of EE as well as a couple other features.

What functionality do you think might be lost with the change? Or is it a lot of script mumbo jumbo that would go over my head?

Has there been any use of a test module for EE yet to see what issues with stability are involved?

Well the hak based stuff like our custom classes/feats/spells are not in danger in general.

What would be in danger are the following:
- dynamic areas
- transitions
- spawns
- DCs
- Personnel things: CDkeys/permits/bans etc etc etc (we would have to redo those things due to the new system anyway)
- our DMtools that are linked to the database (those are critical ones)
- Everything in the databse such as: Housing, donation funds, donation
- scripts that are linked to the database.


...so a lot

And of course..we would have to test it on a test module at the beginning

Is putting up a test mod an option, something striped down, core areas and stuff without the extras... might help generate interest from those who can help?

well...we would have to rebuild every plugin on a Linux system. Although I've been checking the NWN:EE serverlist and there are a few windows based servers too, so...I am now confused and I lost track with the updates on that front!
