      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. Hey everyone!  Here's the singular, but important update for 9-21-17:

    • Rewrote magic combat formula.  There is no longer a cap on damage dealt by a certain spell.  Max hit with max mage gear is now in the high 80s, which is about even with the Melee max hit and Ranged DPS equivalent.

  2. Hey everyone, small updates for today:

    • Updated auto-updating client.  Please manually redownload at: http://salvageps.com/client/Salvage-PS.jar
    • Fixed issue where magic attack multiplier was not being applied.  Magic is now equally deadly as the other combat styles.
    • Doing ::attacks now shows you the proper max hit based on the spell you are currently casting or have set to autocast.
    • Moved Frost Dragon spawn locations around so they didn't no-clip through walls.
    • Haha 1

  3. Hey everyone,

    I've made some improvements to the auto-updating client (not the game client).  If you don't know, the auto-updating client checks the last modified date of the actual client, and if it's newer than the version you have on your computer, it automatically downloads the new client.  There have been some issues where the download doesn't complete correctly (typical Java stuff), and the user is stuck having to delete the file it downloaded and try again.  I've added a "retry" functionality to the client.  If the download fails for whatever reason, it'll delete the client file, and if you want to retry, it will try it over again.  If it fails to download over and over again, your internet connection might be unstable.  Hopefully this cures some headaches and lets everyone get back to playing Salvage!

    Please download the new auto-updating client here: http://salvageps.com/client/Salvage-PS.jar

    Thanks,

    Justin

  5. I've added a new group called "Top Donator".  This allows me to showcase who is the current top donator on Salvage!  Donating is not all about the money, it's about loving the server so much, you contribute a some of your hard-earned cash to keep the server running.  If you can't or don't feel comfortable, don't!  Please thank the top donator, and all donators for their contributions on keeping this server running!  Without their contribution, server hosting, toplist premium memberships, and advertisements would not be possible.

    There are a few who've donated a ton of money, but the current top donator is @Skittle.


  6. 4 minutes ago, Skill said:

    Why remove claim funds option from the scrolls? 

    Players would be able to donate x amount of money and buy the scrolls to claim the funds, which allowed them to get double the "amount donated", putting them at a higher rank.  They wouldn't be able to spend the points on anything, but would be given the benefits of players who donated more.  I didn't see it as being fair.  It was on the source to begin with.


  7. Hey, everyone!  Here's the updates for 9-12-17!

    • Added Drop Tables! Type ::drops to open the interface. Scroll through the list or search for a specific item or npc using the input fields at the top.  Typing in the input fields is currently slightly bugged, because whatever you type in the input field and search for also gets said in public chat.  The drop tables work correctly, and this is an issue that will take a while for me to investigate, so I want to go ahead and get the feature out there.
    • Increased drop rate of ogre coffin keys from Zogres & Skogres minigame
    • Nerfed grimy herb reward amount from ogre coffins
    • Added coin drops to revenants to decrease chance of receiving pvp drops
    • Added dragonkin lamp to vote shop for 50 points
    • Added colors to several warning messages
    • Removed ::bank command from Server Support role
    • Removed "Claim Funds" option from donation scrolls
    • Changed some text in game
    • You can now use queen's secatuers without regular secatuers in your inventory or tool belt
    • Nerfed xp from fletching rune arrows
    • Made ring of wealth double chances of receiving gems from rocks (including onyx)
    • Added message to alert player if they received an ancient effigy drop
    • Balanced prices of some items
    • Fixed agility brawling gloves immediate degrade bug

  8. Hey everyone, I just wanted to let you know that I've been working on something BIG. It's something a ton of you have asked for, and it's going to be a great addition to the server. I've been working on it for quite a while now, and am to a point where I feel confident I'm going to be able to finish it. Unfortunately, I'll be away this weekend, so it'll be at least Monday before I can continue to work on it. I hope you all are ready for:

    DROP TABLES!

    I also have some smaller updates coming along with that, so stay tuned for those. I didn't want to leave you all high and dry with no updates for a couple weeks, so here's my explanation. I hope you all enjoy the drop tables when they're released cuz they've proven to be a real bitch to make. Lol I'll keep you all updated!

  9. I've made a small update to the hiscores.  Now, you only show on the hiscores if you've gained over 1,000,000 xp in the respective skill.  You can still search for your name and see your xp and all, but you won't be ranked and shown on the leaderboard if you haven't gotten 1,000,000 xp in that skill.  This should help out getting a good idea of how many people actually continuously play the server.
