Well people have been developing on public servers. I’m hosting a public server right now, along with three other developers of mine. NPCs are available to be spawned and so are enemies in my server, and LUNI right now is a community website, Jonny’s server unfortunately got hacked by a developer of mine, which has been fired. There is quite a lot of progress that was made during the time you’ve been away, and now the only Public Server available right now is my server, which is called LEGO Universe Reborn.
Welcome back! If you want to get started on my server go on http://reborn.luniserver.com/UniverseLauncher/
