This forum is deprecated.

We’ve decided to deprecate the community forum starting August 29, 2022. We will keep all existing accounts, threads and comments, but no new registrations will be accepted after that date. Our initial intention was for this forum to be a place where the community could communicate and interact about all things from Grinderscape. However, over the years, most of the posts have amounted to Discord such as general chat, bug reports or feature requests, much resembling a more professional and advanced way of communicating. This has led to the following decision that our main focus will be on Discord for all of the server updates, bugs, support line, and more which will make it more active and worth looking at. This means less hassle to check forums and Discord as now you know everything will be on Discord.

New OSRS Cache | Ambient Sounds | Vast skills rework

Recommended Posts



          As many of you know, this update did take a lot of time to finish. The main reason is a lot of core rework has been done on the
server, which should improve the overall server features. Tons of back-end bugs have been fixed that could cause potential dupes, lagg,
and security issues in the future have been tightened and improved. Several other cases have been tested and fixed, such as:


  • Using interactive combat magic spells on NPC's.
  • Using combat magic spells on players while in and out of the Wilderness.
  • Standing under NPC and talking to NPC / Using an item / Casting magic., .etc.
  • Trading / Duelling / Gambling while standing under the player.
  • Trying to duel another player while in a duel, or trade another player.
  • Trying to teleport outside duel while in a duel, gamble session, or trade.
  • Using specific commands while in a minigame.
  • A lot of container system rework with a potential dupe fix.
  • Using woodcutting axe on trees.
  • Using pickaxe on ores.
  • Using items on the furnace, and on fire.
  • Using items on the ground.
  • Trying to light logs in a bank, using tinderbox on logs on floor.
  • Using tinderbox on random items.
  • Using items on furnace.
  • Redone minor skilling mechanics, including improvements to timing and delays.
  • Over 70 typo fixes to match OSRS ideally in many different scenarios: Such as trying to smelt gold says you don't have enough level to work gold instead of smelt gold.
  • Using items on NPC's while standing under, and from far away.
  • Perfectly fixed tele-other, snowball throwing, Christmas cracker, and rotten tomatoes in many different scenarios.
  • Improved some mechanics in NPC's aggression system, target finding.
  • Trying to attack someone in the Wilderness while you are not in the Wilderness.
  • Trying to attack someone not in the Wilderness while you are in the Wilderness.
  • Fixed tons of overlapping area's system that caused potential region bugs.
  • Some stuff is still under development, such as redoing the pathing to NPC's/players, following, and player movement system to match OSRS.
  • Going to redo clan chat system to match OSRS perfectly, including Clan Wars with their high scores.

- OSRS tokens store allows you to buy tokens with platinum tokens.

- Many new maps reworked, those include:
* Donator zone + bridges fixed.
* Home area.

* Gambling zone.
* Edgeville map tweaks.

- Added new OSRS cache and this means: (THIS IS MASSIVE, all the support loading includes new systems implemented into the client):
* Supporting all new OSRS items up to the latest items, which will soon be configured and in-game.
* Supporting all of the latest OSRS maps & minimap icons as you can tell already it has been implemented.
* Support for all the latest sounds and musics revisions.
* Supports loading all latest NPC's with their proper varbits configuration which can be used for boss phases. (Helps us add new content)
* All textures and tiles configuration and settings.
* Support for all the new models, including item models and equipment models.
* Latest OSRS graphics & animations support.
Note: The reason this took a lot of time is that the new OSRS new cache changed the NPC ids, object ids, varbits, and a lot of configuration that we had to basically redo our spawns, drops, dialogues, bosses ids, and tons of stuff
to get it functioning properly. We had to quickly reconfigure a lot of server settings so that it adapts appropriately to the new configurations. Minor bugs should still be there, but they will be hotfixed very quickly. Most other servers only add the cache models to their clients which is brings a lot of bugs in the long run, however ours is perfectly done.

What a great update. This will hopefully revitalize the community more-so! 


One question though, is the large update every 4 or so weeks the model you guys would like to move forward with concerning updates, or is the goal to have smaller, more frequent updates?
