Hi everyone, just wanted to make a post asking you all what kind of servers you might be interested in us hosting! I'm making this post in an effort to try to expand the community beyond just Minecraft. Feel free to drop any ideas or suggestions in the replies here! :)

Requirements:
  • As we're currently over saturated as is and the whole point here is to try new things, preferably NO MINECRAFT SERVERS
  • Because of how servers work the game would have to allow hosted servers (not dedicated)
  • It's preferred that the game is relatively popular and possible to grow with, if there's no interest in the game or room for growth it's simply not worth our time and energy
  • Interesting games - Suggest things that you yourself might be interested in playing if we hosted a server!

Thanks and hopefully we can come up with some good ideas from this! :)

Something that shot to the top of my mind: CSGO, also known as Counter Strike, Global Offensive.
Quite well known game where you can host your own servers.

Survival JMod again: 6th Jan 2022-present

I remember that sft did have a terraria server yet it didn't go smoothly from what I recall. Vanilla terraria probs wouldn't last long sadly

@RallyReaper  and I had an almost completed Terraria server and I can't quite remember what happened with that, might still have it somewhere.  Also it's kind of an unfair statement to make how non-Minecraft server launches have gone, because historically we've had a pattern of for whatever reason (besides TTT) just releasing non-Minecraft servers, barely mentioning them or advertising and abandoning them after a week or two, so they really haven't been given much of a chance.  Minecraft's popularity isn't what it used to be these days so I think it's far more important now to put more effort into expanding to other games and giving them a decent chance. :)

I will bring prison back at some point but please stay on topic, this post isn't for Minecraft servers, we have enough running/in the works currently. :)

I'd personally play on a CSGO or Prison server if we had one. Prisons is actually quite fun and I honestly think it would be a good addition. (I know we weren't supposed to add any more MC servers, but it seemed like a lot of other players also enjoy prisons including myself.) :)

What kind of server do you mean and are cs servers popular still?

Right my POV from helping set up sft steam games,  every time we do a not a minecraft server it quickly dies because all the good games that are popular people can't run because they are high specs that's why TTT did well because it doesn't require tons of graphics so unless you can find a game with low specs so people can run it it won't be popular , my game suggestion is deadside it's really fun open world zombies survival can build bases ect and have servers to host for cheap and isn't that much of a high spec game

Will look into that!  Also high spec is not an issue so long as we keep in mind we'd need to advertise to a new audience rather than just SFT's current player base (which is something I think we should do anyways tbh)

If we ever do a TTT server again though, I'd be down to help with addons/maps :heart:

We have done before advertised to other people apart from sft and it worked brilliantly on TTT and also arma 2 dayz but then it died as people started moaning they can't run it or died and can't get there stuff back as helping with both of theses projects it would need a different approach on a game where you don't loose your stuff to stop the drama but most good games that have servers ain't like that so need a more mature audience if you want go down the dayz - online survival games

How about a Rust server? Rust js a large game, allows hosted servers, the servers are extremely customizable, and theres tons of things to do.

The pattern there is that those servers happened years ago, it's been a long time since we've made a decent attempt at a non-mc server.

I have never played the game but I'm willing to consider if someone would be able to help :)

For a CS server what exactly did you have in mind?  And prison will most likely return at some point this year, it just takes time to update/change everything. :)

Sorry didn't see this earlier.  I'd probably be down if it still has an audience the only problem is I really don't know lua so developing things for it could be a pain.

Not looking to do a mc server atm (especially modded), but I can forward the idea to @blalp @xQuicScopex and @ceddy24
