Server hangs when booting core3

Hello all! Bew here, requesting support.

So, after working endlessly on getting a server established on multiple Linux distributions, I keep running into the same issue...
When running the command 'sudo ./core3' from MMOCoreORB/bin/ the boot process keeps hanging at a certain point...

Though I have managed to get to this point on multiple linux distributions, the darned thing keeps throwing these [STACKTRACE] warnings at me.
Despite trying to chase down answers via Google-Fu, I have come back empty handed.
I am only butt a padawan, with much fur and random wookiee noises.

*in Shyriwook* HALP! o____________o

Thanks for any insight you can shed, and let me know if more info is needed.

EDIT: Had to add terminal output as a txt file, exceeded 10k character limit.

there is an error in your character_builder.lua where you are missing a } to close of a section. I recommend either using notepad++ or atom (if using a zonamadev vm) which can highlight each section and sanity check your code to ensure each section is closed off correctly. I would suggest that you have character builders enabled and because of the error it can't load the object hence the lockup

Messing with values and not paying attention to your commas in LUA coding is a bad thing. I was missing a lot of commas. The program, Atom helped alot.

I use Notepad++ for Java programming, and am so much more comfortable with N++, but getting it up and running in Linux is a nightmare....

I modified several items to try to sell to different junk vendor types, just goofing around.

Since my last post, I have pulled a fresh copy of ZonamaDev and have my server currently up and running.

I am wanting to add content-based things to the game. I also wish to add a plethora of new tailor items, tailor modifications, and Image Design changes. Of course, I have a looong way to go until I can figure out things like bodyscaling for clothing, equipment slots relational to skeleton, etc...

Just wanted to give an update and say thanks. Everything is smoothed out, for now.

EDIT: If anyone is willing to sit down and talk a few of my design ideas over, I would love to start a conversation about my different ideas.
