      Shutting Down Salvage   03/05/2018

      Well...I've always hoped I wouldn't have to make this post, but I think it's time. Unfortunately, I'm going to be shutting down the server.  I just don't have enough time to bring you all the content you deserve.  It really does suck because I've put a bunch of work into the server, the website, and everything else that goes along with it, but it's time to accept it.  Besides not having enough time to develop what needs to be developed, the multiple $300 15-day advertisements, expensive premium listings, and other forms of marketing weren't really working for us, so it's hard to have the motivation to continue. What kept me going was you all, the players.  I loved the reactions I received after each update and the overall support for wanting to see us grow.  Many of you all have donated to help keep the server running, and it worked out for a long time, but we were just never able to get over that 25 online threshold.  Regardless, thank you to our generous donators.  We would not have made it this far without you all.  I must say it again...thank you. At one time, our community was strong and it seemed like only a matter of time before we would grow bigger, but something happened and that time has passed.  Other servers nowadays are just too far ahead of us with OSRS content that it's hard to compete.  Let alone, OSRS has snagged a bunch of private server players again because of how much content Jagex's team is pumping into it.  As a one-owner/developer private server, it's just too much to keep up with.  These other servers have entire teams on payroll thanks to their years of success.  It's difficult to measure up to these guys starting out by myself and not having enough income to support a few other developers. As far as the future goes, my vision is muddy.  I would like to think I'd be able to re-launch the server in the future once I have more time, but as a full-time employee of a tech company where I do software development 40+ hours a week, I'd like my hobbies/free time to not include programming.  If I do re-launch, you'll receive an email saying so.  Until then, I recommend checking out some of these other servers which I've been playing around on to try to spawn some ideas: Battlescape - It's a nice old school server with a ton of new OSRS features, but they do seem to pad their player count (I literally counted 35 people when it said over 100 were online). Survive-RS - This is a brand new server with a bunch of potential.  It's a survival-style take on OSRS, where there's zombies all over the place and you have to eat to replensih energy and scavenge for your equipment.  It's currently in beta, so there are some bugs, but the gameplay is very fun.  I see some similar qualities to myself in the owner as well. *Note, I was not paid to link these...I just enjoyed playing them. The website will be up until the middle of April and I'll be taking the server offline today.  Thank you to everyone who brought wonderful suggestions to the game and an awesome personality to the community.  Maybe we'll see each other again on another go around.  On behalf of the rest of the Salvage staff, thank you and farewell.   -Justin

    That's sad, but i understand ur decision. Also i think u can still develop the server while offline, so maybe we can wait for a big re-opening huh i really hope for that. It was some awesome time that i spend on the server, but i came back to osrs so unfortunatelly i had no time for salvage. And i hope also we can still play together on xbox ;D I wish you Goodluck and May We Meet Again. With heart break Wędrowiec out.

    I'd be interested to see what the rest of the community thinks on this matter.

    Hi alls, For my part, I find that the corporeal beast is really difficult to kill solo. I also noticed that you can not put cannon in the Boss room. Do you think it's possible to add it, as in the original OSRS? Thanks.

  15. Updates 2-26-18

    Hey guys! Some small updates to Zulrah today, but it made a big difference. Enjoy! Zulrah no longer phase locks! Moved phase switching to combat strategy instead of running as separate task. Melee Zulrah now switches melee animations and performs an attack on each cycle as expected.

  22. Updates 2-15-18

    Hey everyone! Huge update today with some amazing content! Enjoy! Added Elite Clue Scrolls! Elite clue scrolls work in the following ways: You can receive them as a clue scroll reward from any tier (except Elite). You can receive them as a drop from certain bosses (check ::drops) You can only have one at a time. You must complete and turn in your clue scroll or drop and destroy it to receive another. A clue is considered complete when you receive your reward casket. There are four different types of Elite Clue Scrolls: Kill Task: This clue will require you to complete a specific kill task (sort of like slayer, but a little different). After completing the clue, speak with Kuradel (Slayer Master tele or Ancient Cavern tele) to claim your reward. Donation Task: This clue will require you to donate some mid-tier item to the Well of Goodwill. Upon using the required item on the well, you will be given your reward casket. Gather Resources Task: This clue will require you to gather fresh resources and turn them in for your reward. You must actually do the work to gather these resources and not just hand them over after buying them from a shop or pulling them from your bank. Speak to the specified NPC to claim your reward. Acquire Points Task: This clue will require you to gain x amount of points in a certain category. Just like the Gather Resources clues, these points must be newly-gained. Speak to the specified NPC to claim your reward. There are three new achievements associated with completing these clues. Progress will be tracked in the description of the clue, so if you aren't sure how you're doing, read the clue again and it'll tell you. OPENING ELITE CASKETS IS TEMPORARILY DISABLED TO GIVE ME TIME TO ADD MORE REWARDS - KEEP THE CASKETS TO COMPETE IN THE CONTEST Added achievements for solving elite clues Added Hide N Seek minigame! Admin+ staff members can start a hide and seek minigame that auto-generates server messages! It's all formal now! Corrected Zulrah's teal phase to attack with both mage and range Fixed issue where players couldn't range Zulrah from the safe spot behind pillar without stepping into the gas Put in possible fix for issue where Zulrah gets stuck on one phase and doesn't attack. Fixed bug that made adamant bolts when attempting to craft ruby bolts Re-ordered players online interface to better represent rank hierarchy Added big fish catching to fishing! There's currently a 1/250 chance to catch a big bass, big swordfish, or big shark. These were inteded to be wieldable items, but I didn't add the final models into the cache...so if you get one now, enjoy the model glitch! Added achievement for catching a big fish Added "::dropparty" (or "::dp") command! Use this to teleport to the drop party building in Seer's Village Added "::votespecial" command for staff! Staff, use this command to remind players of the current voting special offer. Fixed issue where shops with limited quantities of non-stackable items wouldn't lose stock when items were purchased Fixed issue where players could not claim their last vote point of the day Added new server message and modified old ones Modified more item prices and quantities in shops Minor text changes
  23. Hey guys, just a heads-up...Elite Clue Scrolls have been released without the ability to actually claim the rewards from the caskets. I want to add a bunch of new cool items for you all to get from these clues, but I also want to deliver the content I've already made to you. Adding new items takes a huge amount of work, but I really want you all to get started on the grind to completing these clues as soon as possible. Be looking for this update very soon. Elite Clue Scrolls work in the following ways: You can receive them as a clue scroll reward from any tier (except Elite). You can receive them as a drop from certain bosses (check ::drops) You can only have one at a time. You must complete and turn in your clue scroll or drop and destroy it to receive another.

Speak to the specified NPC to claim your reward. There are three new achievements associated with completing these clues. Progress will be tracked in the description of the clue, so if you aren't sure how you're doing, read the clue again and it'll tell you. Since no rewards will be able to be obtained for the first few days of having Elite Clue Scrolls released, I will be holding a contest! I will be giving rewards to the top three players with the most Elite Clue Scrolls completed! The winners will be rewarded after release of the new items and the ability to open the caskets. Before updating, I will be looking through player files to see who the winners are. 1st place: 3 Elite Caskets 2nd place: 2 Elite Caskets 3rd place: 1 Elite Casket With the release of the new items, these extra caskets will give you more changes to receive these them! CONTEST IS LIVE!
