Stale Development Days

What happens when I get bored with no restrictions.

Since the year 2021 has started, the development end of our community has been quite slow. Although it may not seem like it, but most of our team is still struggling to get back into the groove of things, or are just now starting to slowly grind away at whats needed to be done.
However, things take time, and while the team is busy working on their projects, this leaves me with nobody to manage and a whole bunch of dangerous freetime.

And with that freetime, I have started creating a Minecraft server.
(Also as a side note, everything I am talking about here is a heavy work in progress.)

Yes, it's being worked on and it's coming back.
Although if you are a returning player from the old Minecraft server, this will be a completely different experience. Minecraft Wildlands is going to be a open-world RPG server with our own DefconGaming spin. Of course, you have the base RPG values like skills, levelling, classes, questing, and obviously some crazy loot, but you also will have some personal touches like player settlements, towns, and nations with wars and alliances on the table.


Today marks the second week since we have started working on this project,
and it's likely you won't see it for another few weeks at the very least.
We have some pretty ambitious goals and ideas for this server that we want to have featured upon our release, but we also don't want to pour time and effort into a project that might not stick around.

Our plan for this server is to release a very light Beta version for everyone to experience. If it receives a good reaction and can stand on it's own, we will continue expanding the server and giving it the attention it deserves.

"What can I expect from the Wildlands?"
Right from the start players will be sent into the hostile landscape known as the Wildlands, where they will take part in the world's story and the adventures within.
However, if you are a simple-minded player who just wants to play some Minecraft, you can completely ignore the questing and just go off into the world as a Pilgrim.
However, with the dangerous new creatures lurking in the shadows,
it may not be wise to do so.

As for the other cultured gamers,
The server will launch with 5 classes to choose from, each with their own gear to use, stats and perks, and more.

These initial classes being; Archer, Rogue, Barbarian, Mage, and Paladin.

For some of you this may be alot to take in right from the get go, but it is much easier to understand once you begin playing the server and understand the mechanics.
I mentioned each class having their own skills; these skills can be unlocked and upgraded by levelling up, and can be rebinded to any key to cast during combat just like in other RPGs. Players will also have a wide array of other attributes to level up within their character, like their Mining Profession or their Strength Attribute. profile

"When can I play and how can I know more?"
Right now, we are too early in development to put a definitive date on when we will open the floodgates for everyone to test, but we are looking to release as soon as possible so we don't end up wasting time as I mentioned before.
As for learning more about the server, weeks prior to the Beta release we will send out an invite the Wildlands Discord, where we are currently housing our Alpha Testers and contributors for the project.

Once we are ready, you will know about it.

Anyways, that's it for this post. I just wanted to get this project off my chest so I can let everyone who may potentially be excited for it know that it is coming, one day. - Sour
