Click the link HERE to access the repository.

List of contents and their desired purpose:

"0 Ignore This" ::: This folder is my testing grounds for various things DAoC. You can ignore it unless you really have an itch.
------ When I see an issue come up that I think I can try to figure out through trial and error testing, I will often write up a theory on something and little test calculators here and there. I'll go in game and do whatever test I can and log whatever I find in this folder. As of right now, the files contained within don't really amount to much of anything worth anyone's attention. Thus, "Ignore This".

"Camelot Herald Posts(GrabBag etc)" ::: This folder contains two sub-folders.
---::: "Other Camelot Herald Snippets" ::: In this folder you'll find a handful of various topics Mythic employees talked about.
------ These topics are various and were not labeled as GrabBags which is why they got their own folder. Did you know that you used to be able to pick up an enemy realm's relic as an assassin or archer character and go stealth while carrying it back to your realm? THAT is the purpose of THIS folder...


---::: "Sanya Grab Bags" ::: In this folder you'll find every GrabBag(Community Q&A) of Sanya's that I could find.
------ This folder contains every GrabBag I could find. I took the liberty of consolidating all of them in a single file for easy searching and went a step further by reading every single GrabBag yet again and pulling snippets here and there that I personally felt worth sorting in another file and appending their bag# after each line. If I missed a line, sorry. You can find it yourself with a Ctrl + F. You will find a lot of X is X because it's X information that one month later might be, "I'm sorry I said X is X because it's actually Y. Whoops!" from Sanya. So be sure to make sure whatever you find is not overwritten by a later GrabBag...



"DAoC Mapper Software" ::: This folder contains the install file for a Mapping Application I came across for DAoC.
------ I installed this and gave it a test. I was really hoping to find a repository online of all the old DAoC map files that the big mappers were using to make their detailed files. No luck. Currently see no point in this software.



"Maps" ::: This folder contains 6 sub-folders.
---::: "Albion" ::: Within this folder are ALL maps dated up to 2003 that I've found for DAoC Albion Realm.*
---::: "Hibernia" ::: Within this folder are ALL maps dated up to 2003 that I've found for DAoC Hibernia Realm.*
---::: "Midgard" ::: Within this folder are ALL maps dated up to 2003 that I've found for DAoC Midgard Realm.*
*As best I know, nothing is dated 2004 or later. If you find something wrong. Report it please.
---::: "Darkness Falls" ::: Darkness falls maps obviously.
---::: "Frontier Dungeons" ::: Frontier dungeon maps obviously.
---::: "Battlegrounds" ::: Battlegrounds maps obviously.
------ Some of these maps will provide you with enough evidence to prove a mob should be somewhere. Some of these maps are good enough to even support mobs camps in some cases, especially certain dungeon maps. Happy hunting and cataloging.


"Patches Notes" ::: This folder contains all patch notes since beta up to 1.65 in an easy to search single text file. Later patch notes are contained in a separate file.
------ Two single files easily searched with Ctrl+F. Be aware that Devs have typos too or in some cases might have said "Rez" instead of "Res" when referring to resurrection. As such, be patient when searching if you just KNOW something was in a patch note somewhere...



"Screenshots" ::: This mess of a folder contained what will eventually be an organized collection of screenshots.
------ I've actually seen every single one of these screenshots personally. Duh, because I had to download them. Now here's the kicker... I KNOW for a fact that some of the screenshots contained within this folder CAN be used to verify mob camps here and there. In fact, some of the screenshots along with different leveling guides I found can be used together to verify mob camps. Best one that comes to mine is the Coruscating Mines leveling guide(Which is somewhere in my source text file).



"Spreadsheet Calcs" ::: This folder contains spreadsheets people often used to help them with various things in game.
------ Some people use spreadsheet to find the best way to craft for profit. These calculators might help you. I think one of them might be a little past our patch date, but it was the closest version that the internet archive had available.


"Team Leader Reports" ::: In the olden days of yore, le DA of the oC had volunteers who would listen to all the whining of their fellow players. The volunteers would catalog the lists of ****** for Mythic employees to read. More often than not, truly good information can be found within.
------ No need to go much further into detail. Just read them. Good info...



"The Atlas Book" ::: I took this out as it was Copyright material. Anyone can easily find it on Google if you spend 1 minute.
------ This book is somewhat important because it DOES have Mob Camp #'s for SOME zones and some camps. Don't expect gold, but do know that I skimmed over parts of the book and there is information in this book which I can absolutely see that the Devs have used to help build Uthgard to be as legit as possible. Mob levels, etc...



"Unsorted WorkInProgress" ::: This is my download folder. When I find DAoC related materials, I right click those suckers to this directory.

"Uthgard Bolt Testing" ::: This is preliminary evidence that anyone who complains about bolts missing too much needs to GTFO.
------ Description above is accurate...



"Videos" ::: Name says it all.

"Sources" ::: This is a text doc containing every URL I thought to catalog due to its wealth of information. It is by no means organized very well, nor exhaustive as I didn't wanna copy every BS site I came across either, but it is better than nothing as this list is a culmination of over 20+ hours of deep web searching for anything and everything DAoC.

"To do list" ::: A list of sites I found that I have not taken the time to scour through yet.



UPDATE (Jun 13 2016 [Evening]- Japan Time)
I have made this post as up to date as possible for now.

Luckily, I found a link to another website which kept a very good copy of patch notes on hand.
I copied nearly all of the notes...


Very nice, it's been a pain in the ass searching for those patches not listed on the daoc official website. I notice you had a source document on your google drive page but i did not see a source for the patch note thing. I would really like to check out that site you found with the notes.

I'm interested in looking post 1.65 as well because im noticing post 1.65 nerfs/buffs to classes in the uth beta. If i could find all those little notes i could post issues to get them reverted to 1.65 era.

If anyone can read French...

Please take a look through this site and let me know if you find anything good.
I will go through it later of course with Google Translate to see if I can find anything that should be added to our trove of data.

Include some shots of the old interfaces too, iirc EU and US versions of the game actually had different classic interfaces and I haven't been too too successful in finding comparisons personally (very important to me for obvious reasons hehehe).

I'd like to make use of some details on the mechanisms to create a sort of "Tutorial Screen" for new and returning players for my interface to coincide with the way Uthgard works. This should be pretty ding dang useful :D

Amolin, have you checked my Screenshot folder?

I know I have not had time to organize it yet, but I've got a plethora of screenshots of the interface in there.
Should be plenty useful for you :-)

Holy crap! That PDF has a TON of good info. As far as I can tell it's from 1.61-ish so that's good! I can't even read French and damn.
