    Hello Starbounders!

    Today I had an epiphany, I realised 'why not be prepared for once?'

    So, today I sat down and planned out what sort of Server I would like to grow with the community.
    I am planning to make an MMORPG/Faction/War server. What will it entail?:
    1. Different Races/Factions which from spawn you can choose who you wish to be part of.
    2. Daily/Weekly/Monthly/Yearly Factional War, between declared races. Rewards to be given to people for their triumphant wins (Steam Coupons, Pizza Coupons, Gaming Equipment)
    3. An economic based server as well, how well will your Faction manage it's currency? Will they establish trades?
    4. Explorable areas! As far as the eye can see! Will you find some goodies and treasures that I will be leaving for you.
    5. The individuals with natural leading abilities, they will shine on this server, creating their own factions, to pillage or to assist? The decisions are yours.
    6. To grow a Community which will respect others. For it to be healthy competitive server, for others to help others and not put them down.
    7. Just a general MMORPG server. But we will make it awesome!
    The server will be hosted on a personal machine through Creeperhost, it will be located in France, suitable for all players. If you would like more technical information, don't hesitate to ask me.
    Want my Skype? lukehawkins0202 make sure you send me a message of who you are, I get a lot of requests on it so I need to throw you into the right group.

    looks awesome, i may have a server I'm going to play on but if that falls through i'll look you up for sure.

    what country will the server be in? i'm sure people would like to know before they apply, ping etc ;)

    It's gonna really suck if you find out some of these things won't work. :( However once I see some gameplay and such I might apply :) Other than that the idea is phenomenal.

    Expanding on what Drew is saying, we really don't know very much about multiplayer and hosting. I can infer that you're often unprepared, because this is just something that's not really to be "prepared" for.

    In order to create a battle plan, you need to know what battle you're fighting. :)

    Well, i agree with Offline overall. I definetly like the idea (as I plan to have a server running (me or my clan)...but atm it is STILL WAAAY too early to plan for a server. We need more info...and even gameplay before we can elaborate on servers :\

    While I agree, it's not any skin off anyone else's nose if Luke wants to plan everything out - Let him find out for himself ^^

    Of course, and more power to him. He may even be exactly right about how it goes down and be the first server up and available. I just don't think it's predictable enough at this stage.

    Preparing for a server is like preparing for a zombie apocalypse (Done) But I still think that there will be a flood of server prep. and i think this should be in the clan :L Because it's prepping/building a team.
    ~ Thank You!

    Hello Guys.

    As I see, people said 'gah it's too early'....and 'it might not be implemented'....
    People have confirmed that this game will be moddable, so if it is not in the game, it soon will be.
    I have had a few requests, thank you very much ^.^ I will review them....

    Has anyone got any other suggestions to offer?

    Will this be an all inclusive community megaserver, or will you always need to sign up? I was thinking of starting a thread similar to this, on the concept of a community megaserver, like EVE, that doesn't have to be hosted by the Devs.

    Hello.

    I'll make it so you have to sign up, I don't want random space-monkies logging onto the server and being abusive, also with a registration I can keep tabs on peoples names for various operations.
    A megaserver is in mind.

    Ah, well ok, maybe you could fix the problem of having to stop randoms if the Devs include a filter so only already made and played players can come to the server, just a suggestion. Sounds good I may sign up closer to release. :geek:

    Also, if this is going to be a "community" megaserver, sign up is a good thing, but some hardware would be nice to have if several hundred people are on every day...

    Hardware is of no concern :)

    Sounds interesting. Although I wont commit to anything so early on, Im watching this thread

    Well, it's always good to be prepared but, isn't 6-7 months a little much?
