Preservation of PlanetSide 1 - User Sandbox Servers


Hello everybody!

I have a proposal that is quite simple and humble. If PlanetSide eventually becomes discontinued, I would request that SOE kindly provides server and client files required for fans to set up their own legitimate Sandbox server for PlanetSide.

Everything has an end. Planetside had a good run, but just like all things in life, you eventually have to say goodbye.

That's the silliest thing I've ever heard, we're on the Internet!

Exactly. One of my biggest issues with modern console and PC games is that there's no way to get back in once service has been discontinued. Since PlanetSide has no single-player mode, there is no way for players to get back in to do anything or even look around after the online service has been discontinued.

Not really. We aren't talking about a Singleplayer game. Multiplayer games and MMO's all have an end. A new or better game comes out, popularity fades, companies go bankrupt and can't support it, etc... Planetside 1 doesn't deserve to fall from glory and remain a shell of its former self living in the shadow of its potentially better, bigger, and more successful big brother. If PS2 was a total flop I could understand wanting sandbox servers, but at this time PS2 looks like everything we hoped a sequel would be.

Yeah, I doubt SOE will want to hand over secret in-house built code to the masses. Have you ever heard of http://www.swgemu.com... They basically reverse engineered Star Wars Galaxies... Crazy stuff....

This. A new era is coming to fruition for Planetside, we need to be looking forward, not worrying about how to handle the relics of the past.

Aside from that, what the hell would you really do with it? Planetside 1 had notoriously difficult code & assets to work with.

Damn thing just won't die.

I would honestly love to see PS1 "private servers". I doubt it would ever happen but it would be nice if PS2 doesn't light that spark that PS1 did.

Simply, that is not something SOE does or ever has done.

SOE probably doesn't want to give people the tools to "compete" with itself.

And before anybody objects that PS2 is way better and more awesome, so it wouldn't offer any competition, two things to note: if you're objecting, clearly you want to continue playing PS1 to some level. SOE would rather channel that desire into playing PS2. Secondly, go look at user stats for the original Counter-Strike -- it's still going as strong as Counter-Strike: Source. Again, SOE wants those people playing the new product.

The worst-case scenario in SOE's mind is that they release the PS1 code and allow private hosted servers, and people go to town modding it, increasing interest in not-PS2.

Re: Preservation of PlanetSide 1 - User Sandbox Servers


I would like an offline mode reinstated to allow you to go and look about. Even Old Oshur.

You -can- do this with original discs...there -is- an offline mode...so I know it is in the coding.

Even if an independent server were opened, it would suck due to lack of people.

But at least you would get to play with yourself in a sandbox....ummm...wait. That didn't come out right.
