      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

    MINING GUIDE by KABOOYAH 1. INTRODUCTION Start off by teleporting to the Mining Camp. This can be achieved by clicking on the Mining skill in your skill tab. Select "Teleport: Mining Camp". In this area you will find all the rocks ranging from Copper up to Rune and also a bank. First go to the Mining Instruction. Buy the Bronze and Rune Pickaxe Equip the Bronze Pickaxe and add the Rune Pickaxe to your toolbelt. See image: Alright, now you are ready to level up your Mining 2. REGULAR TRAINING As mentioned before, in the Mining Area you will find all the rocks that you need ranging from Copper up to Rune. In the table below, you will find a overview of the XP gained per ore and the required ore that needs to be collected to reach level 99. Note the different Donator Multiplier levels. Start mining the ores and bank them when filled up in the nearby bank EXPERIENCE PER ORE TOTAL ORES NEEDED 3. STARDUST TRAINING (PERSONAL PREFERENCE) It is also possible to start collecting Stardust when you've reached level 80. Star Dust can be used to buy a Dragon Pickaxe (500 Stardust), Coal (2 Stardust) Godsword Blade (3000 Stardust) or a Barrows Set (5000 Stardust) at the Stardust Shop in the Mining Camp. Stardust can be collected by mining a Crashed Star. The Crashed Star is one of the random events on the server. It spawns every now and then in a random location in the world. You will be notified if a new Crashed Star is located in the chat box. You can also check the Quest Tab to see if there is a Crashed Star, and if so, the location is mention too. Teleport to the location and start mining the Star. You wil receive loads of Gems so you will probably have to bank now and then. There is also a chance of getting an uncut Onyx. The amount Stardust that you get from a Crashed Star can reach up to roughly 1000 Stardust if you solo it. The reason why I prefer this method compared to the traditional method, is that you can get items like Barrows and a Dragon Pickaxe. But more importantly, this method is WAY WAY WAY more AFK'ble compared to the previous method. And the amount of XP gained is quite decent! GOOD LUCK!

    WOODCUTTING GUIDE by KABOOYAH 1. INTRODUCTION Start off by teleporting to the beginners Woodcutting area. This can be achieved by clicking on the Woodcutting skill in your skill tab. Select "Teleport: Low-Level Woodcutting". In this area you will find Trees, Oak Trees, Willow Trees and Maple Trees. But also the Wilfred the Lumberjack who sells hatchets. Buy the Bronze and Rune hatchet. Equip the Bronze hatchet and add the Rune Hatchet to your toolbelt. See image: If you want you can also get a Dragon Hatchet (level 61) which is dropped by the Dagganoth Kings (or buy it of course). Alright, now you are ready to level up your Woodcutting 2. TRAINING As mentioned before, in the Low Level Woodcutting Area you will find Trees (level 1), Oak Trees (level 15), Willow Trees (level 30) and Maple Trees (level 55). Yew (level 60) and Magic Trees (level 75) can be found in the High Level Woodcutting Area. The Magic Elite logs can only be found in the Diamond+ Donator Area. In the table below, you will find a overview of the XP gained per log and the required logs that needs to be collected to reach level 99. Note the different Donator Multiplier levels. You will get Magic Logs in noted form if you chop down a Magic Elite tree, hence the relatively lower XP rate. Since these are not available for <Diamond Donators there is no XP rate for the other Ranks. EXPERIENCE PER LOG TOTAL LOGS NEEDED GOOD LUCK!
