I was wondering about how big servers would be and official vanilla servers. I like a good pvp kits server every once in a while but my main time spent on unturned is in vanilla servers. I run into the problem of joining a fresh vanilla server to only have it die a couple hours later (population) or shut down the next day. Would be nice to join in on a official server and know it will be up and when the next wipe is.
I love France, Germany, and Russia, but even on a 24/24 server I can play for 2 hours and not see a soul. I think Washington is a perfect map for 24/24 population, where you can hide out or run into people, enough to keep me interested.
I have recently been playing rust and love there official servers page being the first page and right in your face when you start up. I also like there volume of players on the map, some going up to 250!
I hate the idea of having to fight the same 24 people on server and like the freedom in rust to run out to the other side of the map to start a new game. BUT I like unturned more and am a true unturneder at heart and do not want unturned to be rust. I do not want a unturned map with 250 people lol. But i feel like having a 24 player cap stops the server from growing or staying populated. With 50-75 players, a team of 5 could leave and the server wouldn’t feel like its empty. I do like some of rusts features that I believe keep there “vanilla survival” community alive.
Any fan of unturned vanilla servers can tell you there is only a handful of vanilla servers alive today and even those are dead. I do not believe it is solely because of a lack of players but because the serves are not being properly advertised. I think if they had official vanilla servers at the forefront of multiplayer page more people would join up. But then again this is a forum for U2 isn’t it.
U2 will be released with a new map and I have no idea the size of the map or how many players will be on it. BUT I hope the map will support a healthy amount of people to where the player doesn’t seem lost playing single player, or overwhelmed in a first person shooting involving them getting shot naked on the beach.
I would love to see a map size of Germany with maybe 50-75 players on the main page telling new players “Hey this a good sample of the base vanilla game”. What do you guys think.
