classes: easy
skills: fairly easy
weaponry: easy
etc: depends on what kind of base your going to ... I'm guessing Sci fi or military,
which means guns and that means not much melee.. It might take quite a bit modifying to
get a gun fight to be interesting and realistic.

If you're going to redesign the whole thing, just get the TCP/IP stuff from a book in
your local library and start from the ground up. That way you can make a buck or two
when you finish :)

It will definitely get you better at programming, so it's worth the bother in that
