      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

  3. I for one have never been a fan of including the dungeoneering armours outside of dungeons. So for me I have to say no, but that doesn't mean it can't be done in a way that it could be a good thing, personally just not a fan of dungeoneering armours :P

  4. I see, truthfully this rule probably needs to be reviewed and changed seeing as how after a certain amount of time being afk you no longer gain loyalty points, the second part of the rule says play time farming, in my eyes I can't see how that can affect the server in any way.

     

    I will alert staff of potential afk'ers mining the star, this is something we can keep an eye on moving forward, as well as checking potential afk'ers and kicking them if we deem it necessary.

     

    Thanks.

  5. Start of another good guide, I recommend taking note of the spots the Crashed Star falls as well as the required runecrafting levels to get to each spot.

    Also you can get the Dragon Pickaxe as a drop from chaos dwarfs as well.


  6. Also, I want it to be known this is a guide to pricing, not the actually prices for all items in game, prices in game can be subject to change based off of demands of the sellers and the consumers, this is just a good guideline.

  7. Necklace is good for pure pker's, the stats most likely won't be buffed but we can test.

     

    Shift click has been suggested multiple times, looking into this.

     

    Selling obi capes and things for tokkul most likely will not happen seeing as how you can currently buy the items from the main shops and would allow people to just buy and resell for tokkul.

  8. At the moment I don't think you are ready to be server support, you only show 11 hours played, not nearly enough time to understand enough about the server to help others. I recommend working on in game knowledge as well as getting acquainted with the forum as well, especially seeing how this is your first forum post.

     

    Application Denied for these reasons. 

     

    Feel free to apply again in the future.
