When I say almost here, I do mean for the people that don't wish to donate to play.
2006 Scape is currently in Pre-Alpha which is for donators only. You can gain access to this by donating $2.
(Progress made in Pre-Alpha will be reset once Pre-Alpha is over)
2006Scape has almost 200K registered players.
[ Register or Signin to view external links. ] About 2006 Scape
2006 Scape is basically a remake of when RuneScape was at its best, back in 2006.
2006 Scape has all working skills, few mini-games, music/sounds, quests, most random events and all miscellaneous (i.e multiple worlds, clue scrolls, pets) that where in the game back in 2006
Here are some FAQ's that have been posted on 2006Scape's forums.
wroteWill there be non-members and members? Does that mean we'll have to pay for members?
2006Scape will be free for everyone, meaning that you'll get all of the features members had before. The only way 2006Scape makes money to keep it up and running is from donations.
Will there be things added after May 15, 2006?
No. This is strictly a remake of RuneScape 2006. Meaning that everything in RuneScape 2 up to May 15, 2006 will be in the server. The only exception may be skillcapes.
Will there be random events?
Will there be music and sounds?
Will there be quests? All of them?
Yes, there will be quests and yes, all of them will be finished...over time.
Will there be multiple worlds?
Yes, we will have multiple worlds once 2006Scape begins to grow.
How will rares be distributed?
Exactly as they were in RuneScape: [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
What will the experience rate be?
The experience rate will be 1.0x RuneScape's, meaning that it will be exactly the same as RuneScape's experience. This may be changed later on.
Will there be Skillcapes?
This might be an exception. We will have a community poll for this.
Will there be Hiscores?
Will there be tutorial island, or will you just spawn at home?
There will be tutorial island.
Will the forum accounts be linked to the in game accounts?
Can we have a release date?
"We don't have it planned out for when we want to finish each skill exactly. We do it step by step" - Vault
Will there be a chat filter?
If I donate, what will I get?
You won't get any sort of ingame, or forum privilege, but you will know that you donated to keep 2006Scape alive. The donations are used for several things, and donations are key to keep this project up and running. You will however be able to participate in Pre Alpha testing.
Does 2006Scape have a YouTube channel?
Yes, [ Register or Signin to view external links. ]
How can I become a moderator?
Moderators are hand-picked by administrators, and feedback is given from moderators and members.
Will 2006Scape be playable on Mac's and other operating systems?
Will levels/items gained in pre-alpha be reset?
Pre-Alpha will be reset because when we start Pre-Alpha, we will have higher EXP rates in order to test the skills(because of time limit testing wouldn't get testing to far). This exp rate would clearly be wrong to transfer when Pre-Alpha is over.

Some guy called "Summon" made a quick video of the first 5 minutes of when he logged into Pre-Alpha.
As previously stated above in the "About 2006 Scape" part.
Pre-Alpha will be reset because when we start Pre-Alpha, we will have higher EXP rates in order to test the skills(because of time limit testing wouldn't get testing to far).
This exp rate would clearly be wrong to transfer when Pre-Alpha is over.
While some are enjoying what they can in Pre-Alpha, some are witnessing some major errors, because of the server problems.

I personally am looking forward to this, I haven't donated.
I'm waiting for the to let everyone play.
Let us know your thoughts about 2006Scape.
I have been playing RuneScape for many years and I was mostly active on there around 2004-2006.
I thought after 2006 when they started updating, the game gradually got worse.
I do still play RuneScape, just nowhere near as much as I usto.
What will your IGN be?

Mod Vault's Update (it's on the site forums)
There aren't many bugs, it's literally just this one bug that's stopping us from putting it online.
I'll explain the issue as best I can:
The website you're on right now is hosted in the Netherlands. Why? It needs to be hosted on an "offshore" country. Why? That would take too long to explain.
The game server is hosted in the United States, which is across the world from where the website is being hosted.
The issue is that every time someone tries to login to the server, it needs to verify your username, password, and everything else by sending the information when you press the login button, to the database which is on the website's host (these are called queries).
If too many people are requesting queries at once, the SQL server across the world will have trouble returning all of the information back to the server in the United States quickly enough for you to be able to login, and even be able to stay logged on.
Some of you may be asking, "why not just move either the database closer to the server?" or "why not just move the server to the Netherlands?"
Well, we tried the first one, and it made the server fast, but the website incredibly slow. As for the second question, we don't even want to try that because the majority of players would experience even more lag (since most players are from North America).
So right now, we're trying to figure out the best way possible to satisfy both servers, either updating both regularly with a database, or buying a stronger server which would be dedicated to host the SQL server only.
We are confident we will fix the issue, just please bare with us. You have no idea how stressful it is, 48 hours later (and most of that time spent sitting at the computer) and you're trying to figure out the most efficient way of doing this.
We won't ever give up, just please give us some time.
Special Thanks to Huntxr for putting Input into this to help keep it updated.
