    Hey R-S.

    Whats a good base for OSRS RSPS, I'm not looking to launch anything to the public, just looking for a source that is a good base which I can use to learn more about it, about 3-4 years ago I was working on a 667 but I apparently lost the cache to it and I'm more into OSRS nowdays.

    Just looking for a good base source that has bunch of stuff in it already that I can learn from or improve.

    RSMod, Apollo, Arios, Hyperion, but they dont really have lots of "stuff" or content. Please do not start with a PI to learn from, alot of "PI"s, have shit code and bad implementations, which will most likely cause you to learn bad habits.

    Goodluck.

    If you're just starting out, don't go for Apollo, RSMOD or Hyperion.

    While they are good BASES, you will not have anything to play around with in order to learn.

    Arios has tons of content, it's just a major pain to set it up. (Not OSRS too).

    Have a look at the downloads section and see what you're comfortable with. Apollo is a waste of time. Hyperion is outdated and RSMOD is not written in Java.

    Furthermore, don't go near a source that has been handed down 3000 times. For instance, PI was released many years ago. 100s of different developers may have worked on the source that you're using. This means there's been 100 different ways that content have been written (99 of which will probably be very bad). Look for something that has been written by 1-4 people. The only way you'll get a jump start is by actually adding "content" and not spending time doing core edits and becoming demotivated. Good luck.

    Why does this matter? Kotlin is still fairly similar to Java and targets the jvm.
    You shouldn't limit yourself just to Java (nor did OP even mention Java to begin with); it's always good to learn new things.

    I would argue rsmod is the best of the suggested above, due to the small community of people working on it and using it, you'll easily be able to find other people working on the same code and get help with whatever you need.
    It has plenty of plugins to look through and enough of a base to write your own plugins with little to no modification to the core, making it easier to learn and write for as a beginner.
    Furthermore, due to the small community working on it you can also get direct feedback from others on your code and how to improve.

    That's not a good justification as to why you shouldn't use a particular source.

    OT: As stated i'd suggest Apollo, Hyperion or RSMod as well. All 3 are way better in design to learn off of compared to PI as most people have stated.

    I never justified anything. I said Arios is a good base, I also let him know of the down sides.
    Everyone wants to suggest Apollo but 1/50 who suggest it actually use it.. I wonder why.

    Half of all the people who work on OSRS are using Ascend, guess what, PI lol
    Thanks, MrClassic.

    I would suggest Hyperion as well.
    As stated, there isn't a lot of content, but the base is well made.
