Aug 25th 2009 3:31PM I just wanted to add a bit to what he said.
Whoever knows how to code an emulator (because the servers run of emulators their not made the same way Blizzards servers run) and wants to makes the emulators and updates them. There are about 4 big emulators ATM. They are all beeing coded by a team of people who release them for the public. Some servers have emulators they have made them self and they don't release to the public. There are some forums out there made for emulators where people post guides and things to add to servers. Updating for new patches is done by the emulator team or by the server owner/developers. Scripting for boss endcounters, questes and things like that is not most commonly done by the emulator team and in most cases the server developers do it. Sometimes people release their own scripts for people to use. Having a server run 100% like the real server is almost inpossible. You have to fix spells (spells like Blink, Fear, Polymorph and Death Grip are very hard to make work like their supost to do), script bosses and events and fix other game mechanics. Like LOS. And with a small amout of only amature coders (at least compaird to who Blizzard have) that is hard.

May 10th 2009 2:19PM I've been exploring for about 1 and a half year now on retail. My brother was exploring the 1 and a half year he played from 2006 to late 2007. I've also been on private servers for quit some time. Almost all places you can't reach are ''not finished''. They are never gonna be finished. Some places you can't reach are (almost) like any spot you can reach. Like the IF airstrip, the dancing troll village or the Elwynn Falls. All places that you fly over. As you see in the movie allowing flying mounts in Vanilla wow locations would take a lot of work. In my opinion flying mounts ruined many parts of WoW and I think it would be better of without them.
