Hello everyone,

first of all, thanks for this awesome repack, it's the best I could use :) I'd like to ask about something and I was hoping for extensive answers.
Currently me and my friends are gathering as much information about bugs, things that aren't working at all or aren't working properly, meaning - we're bugtracking.
What I want to do is to start a server when majority of those bugs will be fixed, and I was thinking about doing it in some special way.

Many players didn't have a chance to experience previous content - they just skipped to the endgame of the current one, didn't even bother to check out old raids, unless they wanted old tiers for transmog.
What I'm thinking of doing is to make server to start from the beginning, so: regardless of the fact that it will be on patch 4.3.4, I'd like to start server with Vanilla content only, with level cap to 60 and increase content and lvl cap every couple of months or so. Content of future expansions/major patches would be disabled until the time for exact content to pop out, so for e.g. specific NPCs, zeppelins, races, etc. would be unusable until their time comes.

So I'd like to know if it was possible and how can I do it? Also, if I wanted to start off with Vanilla content, would it be possible to bring old Naxxramas back to life? I know that it's files are still in the game but is it possible to place it where it was on Vanilla so players could raid there?

If it's possible, please tell me that and how could it be done.

Everything is possible in emulation

If I recall right, there should be a section in the worldserver.config, which tells what expansion content will be available.
There is also a line to enable or disable certain classes and/or races.

That would be great, I'll look into that.

What about old Naxx?

I think it could be quite cool, atleast it would be different and that's good - atleast in my opinion.

Regarding your question about old Naxx, I'm not exactly sure what you mean (honestly I can't remember the old naxx, was very young back then), but you're asking how you can get it back or am I wrong?

Indeed - now the only Naxx you can get into is the one at level 80 in Northrend. I am talking the original Naxx, which was located in Eastern Plaguelands during Vanilla WoW.

If I wanted to launch expansion after expansion, it is needed to bring back the original Naxx for the duration of vanilla content and remove it when WOTLK kicks in.

Ahh yeah I see, however I must say I'm not really sure how you would go along and do this - as I haven't done anything as that before.

Anyhow, you could disable the new naxx, but you would need to talk with someone who has skills with map editing etc.

Yeah, disabling new naxx is quite easy - i'll just disable whole wotlk content. so you're saying that i'll need to actually edit a map, eh? that sucks...
