A lot of you have been wondering when Terminus was coming back so I thought I would go ahead and break down exactly what is happening over here and I'm going to start with something that may upset a few of you. All current player inventories, levels, balances and saved locations are being wiped. This decision was not made lightly and ultimately was made to stay true to the integrity of the games original concept which was supposed to be a difficult post-apocalyptic survival mode where resources are scarce and maintaining your current health conditions was crucial to survival. That being said any of you that were playing before the coming update is well aware that this was not the case and that it suffered greatly from imbalances in many aspects of the game.
Now for the good stuff. Say goodbye to the hack & slash arcade version of Terminus and may it rest in peace over on the Zombies server where it belongs. I've worked countless hours creating a custom plugin that I believe really pulls everything together. I've heard your cries and suggestions and here is a list of features you all can look forward to:
New players will now spawn outside of the city in random locations and their goal is to make it to the city.
When you finally make it back to the city the safe zone got an awesome makeover thanks to Fernandont.
Antibiotics, Aquatabs, Bandage, Ex-Rad, Medpack, Painkillers, Radio, Splint, Stimpak, Tracker, and Torch.
The granola bar still exists but now we also have cauldron cooking with way more food options.
Radiation zones now exist and everything you eat and drink has some level or radiation. Get cozy with Ex-Rad.
Drinking dirty water now causes Cholera but can now be cleansed with Aquatabs or by boiling in a cauldron.
All the weapons are the same but getting blueprints are going to be rare which is how it should be.
Once you find a blueprint and "learn" it then that weapon or armor piece is unlocked for you indefinitely.
When you die you lose your drops including your guns so be sure to stock up on Soul Bound attachments.
My favorite new addition is the Feats system which rewards you for reaching certain "Feats" in the game.
Tons of stats are tracked now like what you kill, how you die, what you use, how far you travel and much more.
Well, that's it for now. Hopefully, after reading that list of features some of you have turned your frown upside down. The last thing I want to do is upset any of you but I hope that you trust that I only want what is best for you and the longevity of the server. As far as the re-launch date goes I hate to put an official date on it because life happens sometimes but you can expect it to be opened again in a few days give or take. I will make an announcement when it is. Cheers.
