    Need Your Wisdom to choose a path and solution

    Hello

    It's been 3 years since I've first wanted to have my own server and at any rate I could have easily made a server like those simple ones out there , however things got confusing , scams and broken promises has led me to this stage where I have great ideas for a decent and entertaining server.

    Having an entertaining server has been my dream for a year now and till today I've been both committed & lazy about finishing it.
    Sadly I'm not a good learner and recently I am facing alot of issues both economically , mentally & spiritually .
    Server has taken it's toll on me both economically and mentally but I still wish it would be finished and released for the purposes I deeply believe in.

    I understand all these are really not the type of thread that would be on such forum but I feel this is the best and most comfortable place to ask for help.

    Here's what I have in mind for the server , never cared for giving info but I guess I should in order to get help :

    1- Server is TC wotlk inst80
    2- is located in alterac valley
    3- customized pvp system & customized pvp reward system
    4- few yet detailed quests and a raid inside alterac to fill the pve part of server
    5- achieving full max-pvp gear depends on doing pve as well
    6- donation is just vanity items
    7- few custom and perhaps cata items for trans
    8- small events
    9- theme of server would be something custom but sadly I cannot afford 500$ for a custom model at the moment so I guess I have to go with legion..however whole server and its small details would be filled with references to our modern world and filled with jokes and stuff like that. (random funny events ,npcs , custom titles and etc )
    10- small details like bonus spells , spell swaps , gear upgrade system , EvE , pet swap and other small stuff

    So technically I'm asking to get help from anyone who can even help me with a simple thing , so I can finally finish this and be done with it
    I'm having exceptional issue with c++ quests and vendors because they are both time consuming and very unfamiliar for me.


    There is no Lua on server , so its all c++ , The reason I didn't post this in recruitment subforum is that I cannot really pay..



    Once again I apologize and understand that this isn't appropriate or pleasant to ask for help like this but I am in a really bad place in life and finishing this project once and for all is a Must for me.

    Thank you for reading , please also feel free to post your opinions on the concept .

    That's what ED is here for, unless you're referring to the section you're posting in, which is fine.

    When you've done WoW emulation this is the worse feeling, to not finish anything. I get it allot too, but I still do what I need to do.

    It's very hard to find people nowadays to help you with a server. The best of the best way to make a server is pretty much by yourself and without a team until the server is completed.

    The reason I didn't post this in recruitment subforum is that I cannot really pay..
    Now everyone does work for money. I do admit it is very rare to see that, but those people are still around. You could offer to pay them once the server starts getting donations, but not upfront (right away.)

    It seems as if you're going with a ChaosCrusade kind of look. I loved that server. Though, you have a few more different things than they do.

    theme of server would be something custom but sadly I cannot afford 500$ for a custom model at the moment
    Let me tell you this: Not everything model wise has to be custom. You don't need new npcs from Cataclysm or MOP just to make an enjoyable server. Uniqueness comes from the ideas of what players do on your server, not by stuff that will take forever to download so the players can actually play. Originality is what makes a server, that being said; You don't need custom client edits to make a server worth playing on.

    Your ideas aren't bad at all, you just need to execute them without discouraging yourself. :P

    Well most of the help I ever got was from freelancer , never truly hired a team so I 'm asking for freelance help .
    And I could still pay very small amount of money but I'm just afraid it does not match the amount of work :/
    and for that custom model , Theme of server was originally supposed to be random thing where players beat alien invasion by help of duke nukem and other alien ass kicking guys but nobody does that kind of model for less than 300$ due to it's professional and time consuming work.

    If I wasn't ashamed of requesting a complicated script like the pvp gear shard upgrade for 5-10$ I would have requested it but not sure what to do right now.. alot of my ideas are just out of my personal experience :/

    Thanks for reply tommy
