      Multiple Ads Means NEW Players!   01/12/2018

      Hey guys! Thanks to you all and your support and generous donations, we've been able to drop some serious coin on some new advertisements for the server.  We're now advertising on Runelocus, Moparscape, RSPSServer, AND RSPSPage!  This means multiple players from multiple different top list sites will be able to find our server and join our community.  We've been struggling on the player count a bit these last few weeks, but I know some of you are away for just a bit. If you can, please be online to help welcome these new players and show them how awesome of a server we really have!  Many of us know, the only thing we really lack is a good player base, and unfortunately, many players don't stick around after they join because they often see 8 people online.  Those who do stick around for more than a few seconds start to appreciate the craftsmanship put into developing this server and actually give it a chance.  Please help these new players feel welcomed so we can start overcoming this plateau! As always, we're very grateful for your continued support and loyalty to our server.   With love, Salvage-PS Staff Team

  1. Forum Permission Updates

    After @jdmmills made me aware that players could not post in the "Report a Bug" sub-forum, I've changed the permissions up for you to do so. You will also have a few other permissions on other sub-forums you may not have had before. This especially goes for the Top Donator rank, as I didn't give that rank any permissions when I made it (accidentally...sorry, @Brad). If you think you should have access to a sub-forum and you don't, please let me know.

  8. Server Support Application | Mills | 01/15/18 |

    I like this part. I really like to keep an original feel, but definitely want to put my own twist on things.
  9. Updates 1-15-18

    You'll have to get another. They aren't that rare of a drop, so you'll be fine If you took a chisel to a rock, do you think you could put it back together? Nah, fam. But yes, you just have to equip the Tok cape.
  10. Updates 1-15-18

  14. Adding very rare item

    There already is a very rare item with the addition of Zulrah. Tanzanite Mutagen and Magma Mutagen drops are extremely rare, and once applied to a serpentine helm, it gives the player a helmet that: maintains set effect for any set besides barrows sets protects the wearer against poison and venom gives 12% bonus damage towards monsters (like slayer helm) is untradable, so is not lost on death An extremely rare object can never be too overpowered. Also, I'd beg to differ that melee is the weakest style. Max gear with melee can be extremely deadly. You haven't tried Vanguard and Drygores.
  15. Added benefits for 200m in skills

    I really like the idea of adding an incentive to max xp. Whether or not the boost should happen if the player is wearing the cape or not would be decided on the strength of the bonuses for each one. Maybe combat skill master capes only provide the bonus of the one you're wearing, while non-combat are permanent. Either way, I think something like this could be a great idea. This possibly brings up a good point, because high-level players already have significant bonuses, but there's little to no competition for pvm right now anyway, so it wouldn't matter. When that competition becomes a bit more prevalent when we get more players, these little bonuses are going to be the difference in who gets the drop. In certain skills, 200m xp is a huge accomplishment, so I don't see a reason why these players should get something extra.
  16. Hey everyone! This update has been a long time coming. I've now added a 100% custom top list widget on our home page! Now you can see where we stand among the rest on certain top lists. Please vote regularly, and if you see us falling behind on a certain top list, please vote on that one, if you don't vote on anyone else! Having a higher spot on the top lists help us gain more players, which helps the server grow. Soon, I'll make a way to view the top list rank history over time for each of the top lists. Also, I've added the www CNAME to our DNS settings, so now you can access the site via www.salvageps.com. Thanks, and be looking for a server update in a couple of days!
  17. Custom Top List Widget & DNS Changes

    Modified links on top list widget to include incentive callback url parameters. Now, you can vote directly from those buttons, then claim the auth codes from the auths tab on the vote page. Unfortunately, three of the vote services do not provided callbacks still, and this is because the vote service has been deprecated. I'm looking into getting a new vote service for us or writing my own.
  18. Sup lads

    Welcome, sir!
  19. Updates 1-5-18

    EVERYONE! IT'S FINALLY HERE! Added Zulrah boss to the game! Enjoy this new boss, as it's taken a lot of time to develop and is as true to Runescape as I was able to get it. Any feedback/bug reports are very much appreciated. Please add bugs here. Added special item characteristics for Serpentine helm and its colored variants. See Item Characteristics thread. Buffed K'ril Tsutsuroth in all stats Fixed issue where player couldn't walk to location clicked on far outside of minimap New players no longer auto-join the "Help" clan chat. Be aware of this when trying to welcome them or yell, as some people may not be in the CC. Changed transform effect of Easter Ring and Ring of Stone to equip action instead of operate. Fixed issue where other players could not see that other players have transformed with an Easter Ring or Ring of Stone. Added right-click functionality for Java 9 users (Still recommend using Java 8, as the client looks odd on Java 9 - currently working on a fix for that)
  20. Salvage-PS currently contains items that holds some special characteristics which many new players might not know about. They would either have to hear about the characteristics from other players, learn about them themselves, or look back at the update logs to see what I've added to them. This guide will aim to alleviate that headache and explain what each item has to offer. Drygore Rapier/Drygore Longsword: Drygore weaponry currently has 1.25x the bonuses as their primal counterparts. This means they are, by far, the best melee weapons in the game. Full Slayer Helmet: While wearing a full slayer helmet, your max hit will increase by 12% for any combat style. Works on and off task. Hybrid Armor Sets: Wearing a complete hybrid armor set (Vanguard, Trickster, or Battle-Mage) increases your potential max hit for the armor's primary combat style by 40% and the armor's secondary combat style by 20%. Magic Fang: Attach to Staff of the Dead or Trident of the Seas to create it's venomous counter-part Nex Armor Sets: Wearing a complete Nex armor set (Torva, Pernix, or Virtus) increases your potential max hit by 20%. Magic Secateurs: 83.33% chance to harvest each consecutive herb (after three herbs) instead of 75% chance from regular secateurs. Can be equipped or in inventory. Ogre Artefact: Deal double damage to Slash Bash while the Ogre Artefact is in your inventory. Upon killing him, the artefact will be destroyed and you have a chance to receive a special drop. Penance Boots: In the Wilderness, your run energy will deplete. While wearing Penance Boots, your run energy will never deplete. Penance Gloves: While wearing Penance Gloves, any special attack accuracy bonus from another player will be eliminated. Queen's Secateurs: 87.5% chance to harvest each consecutive herb (after three herbs) instead of 75% chance from regular secateurs. Must be in inventory. Ring of Fire: 1.5x Firemaking xp when equipped Ring of Forging: 100% chance to successfully smelt iron bar and 2x Smithing xp for smelting when equipped Ring of Wealth: Increases chance of getting rare or better drops by...a pretty substantial amount... Serpentine Helmet: Protects the wearer against poison/venom damage and increases potential max hit against NPCs by 12%. Serpentine Visage: Chisel into Serpentine Helmet Slayer Helmet/Hexcrest/Focus Sight: While wearing either of these items, your potential max hit against NPCs will increase by 12% for the given combat style (Slayer Helmet = Melee, Hexcrest = Magic, Focus Sight = Ranged). Works on and off task. Tanzanite/Magma Helmet: Counts as a valid helm for any equipment set (minus Barrows sets). Untradeable, so not lost upon death in PVP. Protects the wearer against poison/venom damage and increases potential max hit against NPCs by 12%. Tanzanite/Magma Mutagen: Use on a serpentine helmet to recolor it Toxic Staff of The Dead: Deals venom damage as well as normal combat spell damage Trident of the Seas: Has a built-in combat spell which deals slightly less damage than Ice Barrage, with no rune cost Trident of the Swamp: Has a built-in combat spell which deals slightly less damage than Ice Barrage, with no rune cost, plus deals venom damage *Keep watching this list, as others are sure to be added!
  21. GUYS! I have amazing news! I was able to nab a Runelocus ad! If you don't know, these are active for 30 days or more and are EXTREMELY competitive to get. It was a lot of money, but you all helped pay for it with your generous donations. I expect this to grow our player base a ton, so I need everyone online and welcoming new players as much as you can. Our loyal community has been around for a long time and we know all we really lack is players. Once people see the quality of the server, I'm sure many will stay IF they see enough players online. We have an okay player base, but a lot of you all are in different time zones so it hurts the "appearance" lol. Let's hope this ad grows our community and brings some wonderful accounts and suggestions to our server. Thank you all for being you. ~Justin
  22. Salvage-PS Item Characteristics

    Updated new characteristics of Serpentine helm variants
  23. Hey guys! I just wanted to give you an update on my Zulrah development. As some of you know, I'm creating a 100% true-to-Runescape Zulrah. I'm about 98% done with development and I'm just working out a few kinks, so expect an update with Zulrah VERY soon! In the mean time, grind out getting a Staff of the Dead drop from K'ril or a Trident of the Seas drop from Kraken because you'll want one of those when you get a magic fang drop from Zulrah! Keep the suggestions coming and thank you all for being so loyal to this server. ~Justin
  24. Hunter Skill Guide

    Another awesome guide. Way to go, man.
