Anyone had a look?

Is it worth building or is it too large of a project for an individual to make functional changes?

If you were to host a variant, Its my understanding that you couldn't even ask for financial support for hosting because that would infringe on the IP?

    Ryzom is kind of broken so you need to do a lot of extra work to get the thing functional. They moved the build executables and made some changes to the overall structure so manual moving things in the tree will take some work.

    They still have 3DMax as the art pipeline so if you have that go for it.

    The game play is mostly built in bricks and Lua. You'll understand what bricks are once you start using it.

    Biggest draw back to this engine  is the lack of good documentation. You'll spend a lot of time working in source just to figure out what and how to build your game from it and in some cases fixing it to compile correctly.

    This engine is not for a novice developer.

    Are there still a few active players in this game? I really wanted to try it a while back but heard it was dead.

    This about the open source engine not the game.
