This is about a personal project I've been longing to do for some time now. Since a while now I have stopped playing WoW, but as I'm quite experienced in C++ I thought I'd try the following:
- Write a minimalistic server for vanilla WoW for experimental, personal purposes
All it would feature is being able to login with a fixed character, and being able to travel around in the standard maps (non-instance; Kalimdor, eastern kingdoms, etc.) I also don't want to use / modify existing projects such as Mangos in this case, as this would be all about the development process and trying it on my own
My questions to you:
- Is the above a realistic objective?
- How much work would such a project require? (Boilerplate code excluded, just the basic stuff to make the client "happy")
- Do you have any other recommendations for me regarding this?
