Tartarus is a project that started back in 2013. Back then it was called “Project Velocity”.
This project has been launched before, however due to school sucking up all my time I had to shut it down. Old advertisement thread: [Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
Roughly a year ago I decided to work on this again, and with the current knowledge and new view on RSPS’s I have, I decided to get rid of all the customs and only keep the ones that really add something to the game. These are the custom models such as bosses and a few armour sets (ofcourse no colourful ones lol).
The old thread I linked above is just to show that it’s already been launched before, but should not be seen as a representation of what the server will be on release.
Here are some of its main features and their current status:
Spoiler for Main features:
Reworked login screen
Teleport animation override system
Skilling animation override system
Walk animation override system
Death animation override system
Working makeover interface
Dice games (non-automated)
Flower poker (non-automated)
Custom login music
Money making zone
Pet spawn interface
Dyed T90 items
RS3 content import
All skills working
Custom skill called Engineering
Cosmetic override system
Since I really wanted to add something personal to this server I decided to add something else instead of custom models. Custom interfaces. However they have one rule, they MUST fit the RS theme and may not be too colourful.
Here are some examples of custom interfaces and how they function as of right now.
Spoiler for Media GIF:
Custom login screen
Adventurer's Log forum integration
Custom Engineering skill crafting interface
Thessalia's Makeover interface
Pet spawning interface
Treasure Hunter pet
Animation override interfaces
New player welcome bonus
Ring of coins
Another system that I have been working on and am really proud about is my override system. This is made using different interfaces in which skilling, teleport, walking and many more custom/new animations can be applied. In the future there will most likely be a similar cosmetic override system in the game as well, as of for now I am still working on that.
To unlock these animations you will need a unlock token for that type of animation. These will be obtainable as a rare clue reward as well as via the donation store.
Since I love websites and forums I will be working on these in the near future as well, but my main focus is on making the game as content packed and enjoyable to play as possible.
Closed beta will be held soon for people that have helped me throughout the development stage.
I really hope you will give it a try once we're live and would love to hear your feedback.
If you have any suggestions or improvements please let me know! In the end that’s the only reason I’m making this server, to provide you all with the most enjoyable content I can make.
I am really proud on how far I have come with this so far and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for Tartarus!
Thread will expand when more content is added ingame. I will try to keep you updates as much as I can!
Interested to help? Message me on Discord: ShrekTastic #3921
I want to thank a few people that have helped me throughout the development process of Tartarus: Jarnobs – Dear friend, you have been by my side since the day we started thinking about developing our own RSPS back in 2013. Up to this day you are still helping me make my dream come true.
No words can describe how thankful I am for this.
Ziva – Thank you so much for all your help on interfaces. Without you Tartarus wouldn’t be as awesome as it is currently. Thanks to you I learned a lot about the game’s mechanics.
Shnek – Thank you for your amazing interface tool and answering some of my questions.
Also thank you to all toolmakers for all the useful development tools such as frosty’s cache editor, datmaker and so on.
Last but certainly not least a huge thank you to everyone that has answered my questions on the rune-server forums and discord!
Without all of you Tartarus wouldn’t have been where it’s at right now.
Proud owner & developer of Tartarus RSPS
