We know you’ve all been waiting for some news on SMP and we really can’t blame you. I can assure you that work is being done on the server every day, progress is moving along quite quickly at this point! We have so many great builders that spend a lot of time on the server and are quite frankly doing amazing work. We’re also not short on developers and a lot of our plugins are going to be custom developed to fit the needs of the server and player base. Our team is starting to function as a single unit now and you can see that morale is on the rise.
• So why is it taking so long?
The scope of the server is massive, much larger than any other SMP we’ve ever had before. Where in previous SMPs we had barely fleshed out ideas we are making sure that those ideas are fully fleshed out and perfected and that there is no lack of content. The server is the amalgamation of all our previous SMPs along with a ton of new ideas and content. It is our last chance and we absolutely can’t afford to waste it. We are not going to be setting a release date just yet but we can however deliver a feature overview and progress update.
• Why I think this server will be the best SMP we are able to make
I have read through every single thread on the forums about SMP to identify what worked and what did not with every previous SMP. I have also played on every SMP since Legends of Primordia and have personally experienced what worked and what didn’t on these servers. We have been sure to avoid all of this and have made sure there was few flaws as possible in the fundamental ideas of the server. We are also ensuring to test everything before release to prevent any bugs.
• When is SMP being released?
There will be no release date before we are 100% sure the server will be ready at that date. We do not want to cut any features or release anything untested just to meet a set release date.
The server will still take several months in development, but more progress is being made than ever before.
