I'm starting to fear for the future of this project if something isn't done about this soon.
I'm getting quite tired of servers NOT releasing live-like features/bug fixes they have.. and most of these servers disappear after a week or two, so basically, if another Shard owner wants that feature, they have to spend MORE time creating it all over again.
Of course, some servers (very few) actually release fixes/features they have, but it's getting to the point when I'm starting to think why am I bothering releasing the fixes I have done when these greedy people don't bother releasing their fixes? what is the point? is there a point? yes. I guess these server admins think, ohohohohohoho if I don't release this super duper awesome live feature to other shards then my server will be only one with it! and then everyone will play my server because it's the only server with it! ohohohoho... genius... absolute genius.
Just look at Eden, it was up for how about 3 years, it was pretty much 100% live like in the abilities/spells/styles it had, yet they hardly released anything, and now it is gone and will probably never come back again, that work is LOST, if anyone wishes to have those features, they must recreate them, which is such a shame for the project as a whole.
Really, if a server has a feature which is live-like and they don't release it, they should be forced to release it, or they should be taken off DAoC Portal. This includes quests and items etc.
