AOEmu is a login, chat, and world server emulator for the MMORPG Anarchy-Online. It is written in C# using Lua as it's scripting language and MySQL for it's database system. The AOEmu project is being created in such a way that it will be easy to add in-game content such as quests, NPCs, and other sorts of creative things using Lua. AOEmu will provide nearly cloned functionality of the official servers. The purpose of creating such a project is to provide players with a sort of sandbox for the game, a way for players to test out how their new equipment may work against some of the enemies in the game and if it's really worth spending two months working on obtaining the equipment. In addition to this, the emulator could serve as something to do while live servers are down for updates.
