  • Introduction - MagsAmour

    Hello everyone,
    I'm MagsAmour, not new to this game, I use to play Slashscape in 09' till it finally died. I was in the Era of when Ryan was owner all the way to Chris. I'm guessing this is still the base of it since you own the domain of SS. Maybe you guys can give me more info on exactly what Zaridias is.
    I've been waiting a long time for this server to be brought back and hoping to see alot of the oldfags that use to roam the forums.
    A little about myself, I'm a bit of a fourm whore so I'll be spending most my time here, I just ordered my laptop so hopefully ill be in game some. other then that I'm a lax guy who doesn't get bothered by much anymore. I work for the Army. Enlisted a few months back, studying Networking and Cyber Security. I've been self taught for most of this, working in windows, Linux (Ubuntu, Kali, Tails OS.) I've worked on hardware majority of my life and I dabble in electrical engineering.
    If you have any questions feel free to ask and I'll happily answer, I hope I enjoy the stay



    Fuck Posaq.

    Welcome back Mags,

    Thank you for posting our forum's first introduction! I have been working on this server (Zaridias) since Ryan quit, sometime around 2011. SlashScape was an awesome server and we had a large community ever since 2008. Zaridias was another server, originally created by Ryan, that was focused around PKing and the old version had item spawning as well.

    This new Zaridias server is economy-focused and is a rebranding of SlashScape. In 2015 we shutdown because I couldn't afford to run the server anymore and several developers quit. I got a full-time job instead and the files sat on my computer for many years, unused. I decided to resume development in 2020, and I have fixed a lot of the issues that we faced before. We are very close to being able to monetize and advertise this server (which is critical to any server's success). The only thing slowing us down is the fact that I am developing the server alone. It is hard to find staff and developers to keep the community active and provide player-support. I am also developing a donation credits system, so when that is finished, I am confident that we can grow exponentially.

    I am currently on unemployment (due to coronavirus) and I'm finishing my associate's degree in Health Informatics and preparing to transfer to a 4-year college. I think it's very good that you're serving in the Army and also studying networking and cyber security. I am also studying those subjects to become CompTIA certified. I'm studying for the A+ and Security+ exams currently in order to work in the IT industry. Real life comes first, but I hope we can make this server better than ever before.

      I'm glad you're picking it back up Chris (Idk if you have tags in able) I remember when it shutdown, was a sad day. I am glad thought that it's being brought back and hope to see this place grow like it once was, im sure it'll happen. This game was simply to good not to come back to.
      if you need help ever with bills, let me know I'll see what I can contribute, I know how unemployment goes but reap those benefits while you still can, idk when they'll take them away. Im sorry to hear you're on unemployment too, always remember, the military is always looking for good soldiers and you'd make a damn good one for what you know, you'd come in as a specialist and could even go to OCS (Officers school) since you have college credits.
      I'll help in anyway I can Chris, I owe this community that much if you need help with maintaining the server I'll help. I only know base C++ but if I know that I basically know Java lol. I'm more of working on servers and forum management, I do better in HTML, PHP, and SQL. I know Cpanel and Plesk fairly well.
      I'll have to wait till Friday or next week to get my laptop till then I'm at a standstill though.
      hit me up on the discord, Im on there.

      Edit: what is this sever btw? Is it still the 474 or is it 317?

        I've been looking into the Air Force as a way to finish college. I could start out as an E-3 like you said, I have enough credits for that. I'm studying for the ASVAB to hopefully land a nice job. I might enlist in January 2022. I can't do OCS until I finish a bachelor's degree, but I would really like to be an officer some day.

        The server is a 317 with some additional maps and item models. I don't see you on discord m8, join the one on the homepage.
