Gonna leave a few updates that i think would benefit OS-V, feel free to leave feedback on your thoughts.
#1 - RAID DROPS -
I think that the raid drop table should be tweaked so that prayer scrolls are more common and items such as tbow are less common, i think at the moment there's more people in-game with tbows than there are with Rigour and Augury and i don't think it should be like that.
Common 1/20 - Rigour / Augury
Uncommon 1/30 - Dragon Sword / Dragon Harpoon / Dragon Thrownaxe
Rare 1/45 - Twisted Buckler / Dragon Hunter Crossbow / Dinh's Bulwark / Ancestral Pieces
Very Rare 1/60 - Dragon Claws / Elder Maul / Kodai / Twisted Bow
(These drop rates can be changed it was just to give a rough idea)
#2 - POS -
At the minute i'm finding a lot of bugs with the POS such as items not appearing when you search for them, and then going into a players shop and seeing the item you was looking for previously.
Not being able to look at your own shop unless you search in your name.
Not recieving items when you purchase them.
Overall i just think looking into the POS wouldn't be a bad idea and just cleaning it up abit.
#3 - Advertisement / Consistent Updates -
I want OS-V to grow as much as everyone else and i understand Matt's a busy guy and his life shouldn't revolve around OS-V, but i think recently there's been a lack of updates, Even if every week there was 5 or 6 just Q.O.L (Quality of life) updates i think it'd help the server slowly.
Advertisement is also what OS-V is severely lacking, the only You-tuber we've got is Insta and he's welsh so it doesn't really count. I think investing the money the servers made into a couple big you-tubers to make a few vids would bring a lot more attention to OS-V and would increase the player-base, even if 100 people joined from a vid and only 20 stayed that's still nearly half of the player count at peak times. I know it's hard to find decent youtubers due to being contracted to servers but there's gotta be a couple that aren't.
#4 - New Dev? -
Every week there's a lot of pressure on Matt to provide updates, i think hiring a new Dev to help wouldn't be a bad thing, because for weeks like this where Matt has been away and therefore there's a delayed update an extra pair of hands when Matt's busy would help out a lot. I know it must be hard to find someone willing to help out that isn't already contracted to another server, but the servers made enough to money to hire a dev even if it is for like a month just to see how it goes. i don't think it would hurt.
