      Top Lists Are Working, Initial Player Retention Is Where We Fail   02/06/2018

      Hey everyone.  I just wanted to give an update on where we are with new players.  We are constantly having new players join each and every day, but when they come online and see less than 10 people online, they don't even give us a chance.  Many of you who have stuck around did give us that chance, and now you are part of our loyal player base.  I know I've talked about this before, but I just wanted to point something out. The top list listings are working. Players who browse the top lists looking for new a potential server actually stop and download ours.  That means they like what they see in the description and the banner, and we get their traffic.  They don't get to really try out what they saw in the listing because they decide they want a larger player base.  It really just stinks, because if half of these people stayed online for more than an hour, they would see other players joining as well as our regular players hopping online. Yesterday, alone (2/6/18), I count 13 new accounts.  Imagine if these players actually gave us a shot.  For this, I ask you...if you are able to be logged in, whether afk or not, please do so.  If you have two accounts, please log in to both of them.  Player count is one of the first things new players look at when they log in.  Without it, people rarely give us a chance.  This isn't about falsifying the player count, it's about player retention.  I think the true player milestone we have to achieve is 25 online at once.  Once we do that, I feel like we'll be good and won't have to have this conversation again Thanks for sticking around, and if you're new, welcome!  Thanks for giving us a shot!

  1. Guide - Firemaking

    I learned something...
  2. Extend Slayer Tasks

    What if, after you complete a task, there's a CHANCE your slayer master contacts you asking if you want to extend the task for some kind of extra reward? Could be double points or maybe something else?
  3. Guide - Woodcutting.

    It'd be important to add the base xp because Brad gets all the bonuses. Or I could just add the values to the post...
  4. Salvage goals.

    Are you using charming imp for summoning? Also, I recommend camping dust devils for effigies to get dragonkin lamps to put towards dung, unless you're concerned with completing the new achievements, then you have plenty of reason to do dung!

  6. CONTEST - Salvage Roastmaster

    I guess Virtus is the winner?
  7. If you're ever online when @Virtus is online, there's no doubt you've seen a few solid roasts from one player to another. This contest will allow you to post the best roasts you see throughout Salvage. Terms of the contest: Post a screenshot of the roast you've been involved in...whether you're the roasted or the one doing the roasting, post that screenshot here. Post as many submissions as you like, as long as you're involved in them. You have until noon E.S.T. on October 6th to post your best roast. The topic will auto-lock at that time. Winner will be selected by the number of likes on their reply. Rewards: Roasted winner will be given the in-game "ROASTED" title, while the one who performed the roast will be given the "ROASTMASTER" title. Both parties involved will receive a donation scroll for their efforts, and overall depression. Extra points for double, triple, or quad+ kills. If you can get it in a single screenshot, we wanna see it. I can definitely see this being a reoccurring contest on this server. We'll see how this goes. Happy Roasting! Don't get butthurt if you become the victim!
  8. New Achievements

    Only issues I know of so far is: Price checker one requires player to put item in, then take it out to get the achievement Elite void one does not work. If there are anymore that need worked on or if you have any suggestions for the "reserved" ones, please let me know. The "reserved" hard achievements right after the "defeat x boss" are reserved for future bosses
  9. Forum messages

    Moved to Support sub-forum. This was caused by me not modifying the messaging settings on your top donator role. I've fixed it.
  10. Updates 10-6-17

    Hey guys! Here's the update for 10-6-17! It took a long time, but I'm glad I finally got it done! Added 149 new achievements! That brings the new total up to 250! Replaced all PK-related achievements except for "attack a player". Added achievement certificate to Explorer Jack's shop. Claim this certificate to set the new achievements' progresses which you've already completed in the past. Added rewards for completing different tiers of achievements! For completing all easy tasks, you get a mystery box and a dragonkin lamp. For completing all medium tasks, you get a legendary mystery box and a dragonkin lamp. For completing all hard tasks, you get a $20 scroll and a dragonkin lamp. Raised chance of getting heavy ballista from Slash Bash's special drops Added another ogre artefact to the ogre coffin drop table. Now it's a 2 in 28 chance to get it (or 1 in 14). Added red spider's eggs to herblore shop Added explosive potion to consumables shop Lowered shooting star timer to 1 hour NOTE: I didn't test ALL of the achievements because there's a shit ton of them. If you feel like something should work that doesn't, please let me know. DOUBLE NOTE: The achievement certificate ONLY gives you progress or completion for the achievements I was able to track. For example, when I wrote Treasure Trails, I added a counter for each clue difficulty. There wasn't a counter for tracking how many crystal chests you've opened, though, so this you'll have to start fresh with. Sorry for the inconvenience. TRIPLE NOTE: You must reload your client to see all the achievements and use the certificate.
  11. Forum Graphics Portfolio

    Can you make admin gold-ish instead of the same color as owner? And I think you forgot to put the margin on either side of the staff banners that you did with the others. Those will be the final fixes lol
  12. All pets goal

    Good luck, man!
  13. Official Salvage-PS Price Guide

    Very nice guide. Some of these are subject to change when more items get into the eco. I also moved this topic to Guides -> Miscellaneous
  14. Hey, everyone. I've been getting some feedback lately that a few players are thinking that I'm edging towards a P2W model with the new updates. I wanted to let you all know that this is NOT the case. Allow me to explain: The new cache updates took a LOT longer to get working than I expected. I basically used the cache of another released server to be able to have these new items for the server, but there were some items that were messed up still and needed to be fixed (there's more that I didn't realized need to be fixed and are now broken - i.e. the Fire Cape). There was a lot of code to write which I was not familiar with in any way, which all has to deal with model ids. There's typically 3 model ids related to each item, and figuring them out is extremely difficult if they haven't already been released on a forum like Rune Server. At the same time, I had started getting complaints from a few players saying the server wasn't being updated regularly enough and they were wanting more content. It bothered me to hear this because I was currently working on the biggest update the server had ever seen, and I felt pressured to release it to show that I AM still wanting to improve the server. I worked long and hard on getting the cache right, so it would be a one-time download for all the new content that there was to come. I got the cache to a point I believed was good enough to release, but I also wanted to add a way for players to acquire these new items and give me feedback on their performance, so I added a few to the donator shop. This is what seems to have angered people. In my update log, I did mention the Drygore weapons and hybrid armor sets would be for donators only, and I plan on that staying true, but the vine whip, in particular is the other one I added which will soon be available from a boss drop. The first line of the update log mentions that there's going to be new items to come. THIS INCLUDES MULTIPLE WEAPONS WHICH WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE THROUGH BOSS DROPS. The reason I haven't added these weapons yet is because there's a lot of custom code involved in getting them to function the way they were meant to function...and I wanted to get the update out as soon as possible -- one, because people wanted an update, and two, I knew I would be going out of town for the weekend after. I just wanted to get some content out there for people to start messing with (if they wanted to). I am currently working on fixing a few minor glitches involved with changing the cache, as well as a bunch of smaller things players have reported as being annoying. These small improvements will be accompanied by at least one new weapon dropped by an existing or a new boss. I haven't made it that far, yet, so bear with me. I do want to remind everyone that this is NOT all I do. I have a full-time job, a passion for drag racing (where I was last weekend), a girlfriend, a house I'm trying to fix up, along with other things a normal person should have in their life. While I am occupied most of the time, I feel I can still pump out regular updates after I get the backbone of the server straight again. I am NOT giving up on the server, because a few players haven't given up on me. Improving and maintaining the server is not on the back burner. I've met some awesome people and gotten a lot of feedback on what should be added or removed, and I wish to see this server grow as much as any player who has invested a lot of time into it. I appreciate everyone's support, and I ask that you please bear with me until I can get the bulk of the new items into the game via drops, because this is not, and will never be a P2W server. I do have to give players who are able and willing to donate a reason to do so, because the server has to stay running, and that takes money, so they can get a slight advantage if they wanted to. In case you're wondering, the next bulk amount of donations I get will go directly towards advertising, because having just the spots on the toplists that we have is not doing enough to get new players on the server. That being said, I want to make things enjoyable for every type of player. I don't want to hide anything from my players, and I hope you all wouldn't hide anything from me. Please, if you have any feedback, no matter how harsh, please let me know. It can be public or private, I really don't care, because there's a chance other people feel the same way you might, and I want them to know how I feel about them as well. If you enjoy the server, the staff, and your fellow players, help me help you to get this server to where it should be...one of the top RSPSs out there. If you've made it this far in reading, reply with your favorite color and an out of ten current server rating. Thanks, Justin

  21. Updates 9-28-17

    Hey everyone, here's the updates for 9-28-17! They're pretty small, but took a little bit of ingenuity and time to make. Plus, they're pretty neat! I hope you enjoy! Added a ton of implings throughout the world. Catch them outside of Puro Puro and the donator zones for TRIPLE xp! Added barehanded impling catching! Now you can catch implings anywhere with or without a net and impling jar. Made ring of forging work (a common reward from implings) properly. There's now a 100% chance to make iron bars when equipped, plus double xp on any bar smelted! Added Kraken to Sumona slayer tasks Ensured all activities at EDZ cannot be done by staff teleporting there unless they meet the requirements.
