    Just going to dump all of my complaints about the current status of the VSP servers here because it's to a point where I could care less what happens with anything. The biggest thing is probably boss and weapon balance. People literally complain about bosses and weapons constantly, things that are so obviously overpowered (Rainbow Dash) or unnecessary (Laugh crit on Pinkie/Surprise), things get brought up on here, but nothing is ever done. The community is almost completely ignored when it comes to balance, and it's the most frustrating thing giving feedback that doesn't even matter. I don't think hardly any of my suggestions I've made have ever been implemented, even if there were a lot of players agreeing with it, it's just ignored. What's the point of trying? Another current thing regarding weapons is the fact that the new Gun Mettle skins and Spy's watches still aren't fixed. All the skins still work as TF2 default, and the Invis Watch gives a speed boost (won't block a hit though), and the Dead Ringer is plain out useless. The update came out July 2nd, it's been almost a month and a half, seriously, why is it not fixed? Last thing about server maintenance would probably be regarding new bosses getting added. I mean, I'm still personally against it, but how long has FnaP been done for? From what I remember, it's been over 6 MONTHS, and it's not added? It's not like the boss was denied to getting added, it just ignored. I just don't understand how it hasn't been added yet, or AT LEAST given a REASON as to why it hasn't been. Which reminds me, why are we always in the dark when it comes to things? Can we at least get an estimate of when things will get changed, or at least a response regarding something that we deem unbalanced? I don't see a point in trying to get things changed, because nothing is ever touched. This could also relate to the PF2 players wanting a vanilla server. People are getting impatient and don't think it's going to happen, but we aren't getting any responses regarding it. Sure, people have lives, they're busy, everyone is. But, if the people who can actually change things don't have time, why not give others the ability to do so? There are plenty of willing people with the time that would love to balance weapons and bosses, or at least get things added to the server. I just hate trying when I know nothing will actually get done. Another personal thing that really bothers me is the terrible performance of the servers. Seems to have awful issues with connection (getting hit from 10 ft away from people that have <50 ping), and my FPS is terrible on there. Please, remove the necessary particle effects on weapons and from rages. It' just causes so much frame issues. tl;dr Nothing gets changed, the community is completely ignored, and RIP FPS. Edit: forgot to mention spellbooks. When you have so many complaints about it, constantly, so many people hate them, you'd think that they would get changed or plain out removed.

    It is sad to see VSP in such a state of disrepair. :( I haven barely touched TF2 ever since the Meet Your Match update (God, how I hate those changes) and haven't played it in about a year. Recently I have been thinking about coming back to enjoy some matches of VSP (only thing that actually still draws my attention back to TF2) but but it saddens me to see it's all so broken. By the way, I don't know if it counts, but the ability Flutterbat has to backstab someone while still invisible when coming out of a cloak is obnoxiously absurd. I always hated that. Consider that your number 18.

    I've been meaning to make this thread in a while and never got around to it since I've been busy with irl issues, so anyways this thread is going to go on about how and what the current problems of the servers are, the list isn't going to be accurate since i know there alot more problems that i haven't been able to experience in the server and as well outside, so here is the current ones that i know: The 3 US servers are currently broken and won't let any player join. VSP Funbox DR map autodownloader is broken forcing the player(s) to download the map(s) from an outside source if they don't previously have the map installed. Starlight Glimmer, Zecora, Vinyl Scratch, and Braeburn rage mechanics is currently broken as in being unplayable. Spike's Flamethrower is unusable and his R rage is currently broken. EU and JP servers are currently running on an older version of TF2 considering the game has been updated a lot recently with the Jungle Inferno Update and the new update that fixes the main grasp of the Competitive mode and Pyro weapons re-balancing. A lot of the Bosses still have Random Criticals when they shouldn't have any to begin with. Spy Bosses still doing 325+ damage from simple knife stabs that are not back-stab related. Spellbook item still able to pick up ammo and having virtually no downsides. Classes getting HP max nerfs on certain weapons when they shouldn't especially for a mode that has Bosses that are technically supposed to One shot a Mercenary with less than 202 HP regardless that isn't a Spy boss. Pinkie Pie and Braeburn are not the only ones that are breaking the Super Jump timer. Lack of Admins that have interest in the game-mode besides the ones that still get on when the servers are on/active,(PS: i'm one of the Seapony admins that still comes onto the servers when they're up) A lot of the weapons are still under-balanced in the game mode, same with the Bosses. If there is any that I've missed that isn't on the list, please list them in a fashion that is understandable and obvious to players that have actually spent enough time in the game mode to know what's happening, Anyways there's also a poll that is going to see if People are actually interested in seeing VSP servers coming back. It's not necessary but if you use STEAM then you can also use this in your profile name to show that you are wanting to support VSP as well: #BringBackVSP

    I don't really see how any of these weapons are overpowered and why you'd want them nerfed. The last thing the server needs is more random weapon changes that completely change the weapons. Jetpack: You only have 2 charges vs a Flare Gun being spammable for mobility, its much slower to pull out and execute, and is much less reliable in general on top of not actually being a weapon that does damage. The Jetpack basically trades off ease of use for self damage and less damage done. If anything I think its a bit weak. Dragon's Fury: The Dragon's Fury's airblast is already awful, and I wouldn't recommend nerfing it any more. I can't really see how you think it does too much damage when stock has a damage buff on it plus its a lot easier to aim. If anything you're still trading airblast for damage, which is fine. Leave it as is. Banana: The trade off is that it heals teammates for garbage for how fast it regens. You'd use the Sandvich is a situation where you need to heal teammates a lot, like pocket heavy, Banana is for solo heavy without a lot of teammates, and the Dalokohs is if you want overheal with a slightly faster regen than the Banana. I just can't see how it would be seen as overpowered at all, even as is I'd probably use the Sandvich over it because I heal teammates as a heavy as often as I can. Not really gonna bother with the Hot Hand because its a gimmick weapon and I could care less about how good it is. People'll use it if they can slap, regardless of how bad it is, no reason to really fix what's not broken.

    So.. I doubt people remember me since I got banned nearing two years ago and I was one of the devs for the server. (I made an account just to post in this thread and I'll probably be banned again immediately for posting this) Me (Scootz), No Name and Sarysa created bosses for this server. Proof: http://steamcommunity.com/id/GeneralScootz/ (or ask No Name since I'll be posting this to him) I was the head designer, I couldn't model or code so I left that to No Name and Sarysa. and the reason for my ban was "Doomsaying" the server due to the incompetence of the head admins. This server has been in the Trash for much longer before I got banned and it all started when the admins stopped really caring about it. We used to have models that we had to wait 8 months before even being added and some not even added at all which made the experience for the players a whole lot more boring since we had a bunch of ideas we were willing to create and make for the server so it would live on past its expiration date, however, Raini and Simple never cared enough to implement everything we had for this server.(We had a completely updated chrysalis model, class model updates, new hales and even updates to old hales) They would never listen to the community for feedback, gave all the power to the admins to do everything except actually work on the server itself so content was never there and people who WANTED to work on the server were ignored. So pretty much, this server is dead due to the lack of support from the head admins, Raini and Simple. They have been terrible server owners throughout their years running this server and in my opinion, even though I loved this server very much back in the day and would play every day an animal needs to be put down eventually.

    First off, I'd like anyone that posts in here to keep things civil and easily readable, that means not putting unnecessary pictures into a post or throwing around insults, easiest way to get taken seriously. Second off, it really is sad seeing the servers in a state like this, being a former staff member that still would like to play on there from time to time it's definitely a shame to look at, though they were in no way perfect, it was still one of the easiest modes to relax and talk in, given things were moderated well. Things i would like to add to the suggestions are: - Revised/Revisited rules, mostly because about each and every staff member enforced things differently, which more often than not lead to problems in terms of friendliness, sprays or behavior in general - A more kept up to date list of staff members to contact in case any problems arise - On that note, any way of looking up what each weapon does without having to equip it and let someone inspect you Lastly, I implore people to simply spread the thread/poll to get as much input as possible, mainly since it's still worth a shot considering how many people still seem to have interest in bringing it back.

    Oof. Anyway, considering how much time it has passed, it would've been a bit better for them to do some sort of damage control (hell, even now could be even a decent time to put it out!), and thinking how everything is extremely broken and buggy, e.g. Sarysa's sub- / plugin for Starlight Glimmer is not working like it's supposed to, whilst other hales that have this capability are still well with it. Minions (Chrysalis and Pinkie Pie) are broken and invisible if the player has any sort of cosmetic equipped. HHH also has this issue (this requires to have no cosmetics also, and have any grenade launcher, as well as a Festive Charge n' Targe.). And for a summary, there are many things that need to be updated and fixed in the server, but progress wise, it's not going to happen anytime soon, and recent stuff such as the servers not being able to detect your Steam ID and so on that have popped in, there would be no real chance for me to see any sort of light shining towards the server unless there will be someone that has been added to the staff that has the ability to code, model, etc. for the server, but alas if nothing ever of that happens, I'd only say that the server will be just left to rot.

    Introducing Thorax! Thorax is a changeling protagonist who was introduced in Episode 16 of Season 6 and featured in the Season 6 Finale. He comes in two forms: Standard and Reformed. The standard form is almost identical to that of a normal changeling, save for a slightly bluer tint and sparkly wings. The Reformed form is the form Thorax takes on in the Finale. Have a look! Proposed Abilities: Normal Form: Weapon: The Black Rose Silent Killer Disguise on backstab Essentially the same knife as minion changelings, with the added damage buff that is standard with Spy Hales Primary abilities: Super Jump (1.5 second charge time, 7 second cooldown) Weighdown Again, fairly standard hale abilities. Rage: Transformation On Rage, creates a medium-sized explosion that knocks players back and damages or destroys buildings Along with the explosion, Thorax transforms, taking on the Reformed Form for 15 seconds. The explosion's force will not be strong enough to knock people off the map from absolutely anywhere. It should have roughly as much force as a standard Airblast, and is intended as a means to push Engineers away from their buildings as well as to give melee users a little room to breathe when dealing with Reformed Thorax's increased stats. Reformed Form: Weapon: Your Eternal Reward Silent Killer +50% Damage on Buildings +50% Knockback resistance +25% Damage Resistance Knockback resistance is meant to combat Airblast-happy Pyros and to finish off Engineer Nests that survived the initial explosion. Primary Abilities remain the same There is no need to change Reformed Thorax's basic abilities, Super Jump works just fine for the intended playstyle. Rage: Should Thorax build up full rage again before the 15 seconds are up, he will generate another explosion and the 15-second timer will be renewed. This honestly should be a rare occasion, as inflicting damage equating 100% rage twice in the span of 15 seconds usually means the hale is AFK or really shouldn't be playing Hale. Music: What good is a hale if it doesn't come with some neat music? Theme 1: RuneScape - Zaros Zeitgeist Theme 2: Conker's Bad Fur Day - Sloprano, Final Movement Theme 3: Mario & Luigi: Paper Jam - Final Battle And lastly, Thorax has a few voice lines pulled from his dialogue in the show. And that's it! I'd like to extend a warm thank-you to No Name for his helpful advice and for providing me with the updated changeling base used in the Normal Form, as well as the gradient texture on the Reformed Form. Feedback is welcome, and suggestions are as well!

    Once was a Thriving Community. But after many TF2 updates and the lack of new Ponyville Updates, It died. Many Admins that coded left to never comeback. The Owner Left in her place to sit and do other things to abandon this community that she once loved but now ignores and never mentions. We all want this to come back. But will it.

    If you want to know who's fun to fight against and who isn't, here's a list in the following categories: Fun to Fight Mega Pony: His kit is primarily set up in a way similar to mega man games, he has no true rage function just his various modes that each have ammo limits. Pip Squeak: He's kind of fun in a way, but his main rage isn't fun for the least part since it's ruins a lot of the other team's movement options cause underwater is annoying, but he's fun to fight against if you have that one person constantly summoning Minions instead and have them go Pirate raiding, heh. (Which is almost 95% rare to see someone do this). Sweetie Bot: She's kind of fun to fight since her rage is similar to Princess Twilight's R rage, but rather than that she's almost as good as a doing a no rage run since her rage can backfire sometimes. Fluttershy: She's mainly focused around being a medic that needs bears to help her out, so relying on forest friends is kind of fun rather than the fact that the bears do unnecessary damage, but hey at least she's much more flexible than her previous version. Not Fun to Fight Every other boss that wasn't listed in the above list, since most of them either have one of the following: Stun and or Fear rage Hales. High chances of random criticals for no reason at all. Demo Hales that have eyelander weapons for no reason at all. Not fun mechanics like Flutterbat, Eapplejack, Applejack (Mainly this Hale, right here) Spike: why does he have airblast... like seriously. Pinkie Pie and Braeburn: Players that keep trying to exploit the R rage in air business. Sea Pony: This hale is just no, i'm pretty sure it was amazing in paper, but in-game it's bogus to fight. Nightmare Moon is still very unfun to fight even after getting a nerf from the 500% dmg bonus to 400% and "no random crits". Rainbow Dash: This hale is just super annoying to fight considering she breaks all knock-back she takes by just doing her double/triple jump which negates it, plus she can super jump and then double jump in mid-air to be able to weigh-down when most other hales can weigh-down when they super jump, so in general this Hale is just a huge mess. All spy hales damage on this server Celestia and Luna: both their rages are annoying to fight against, well mainly Celestia's since she can spam her rage without any cap at all.

    Flutterbat has some annoying qualities, she is able to attack too quickly after decloaking, because frankly, I die more often to her being semi-invisible stil lfrom decloak, than actually seeing her, I also find that weighdown needs a bit of a...change on her, it's too easy to aim imo due to the floating effect. I've asked a bit on the server and generally the most of a reply I got was that she isn't really fun to fight. Something I think should be changed, either due to changes on the boss, or it's mechanics, or other things. Keep in mind this is just my opinion however.

    Thanks Emerald Streak. Though, I found something which makes me worry about things until I actually start doing things. This gamemode was officially updated between 3 years, 8 months, 18 days and 11 months, 17 days old. I did some tests and figured out that a command was added called "ff2_start_music" in version 1.0.11, which was about a year ago, almost exact. I tried firing this command, and the command "ff2_stop_music" at the same time and this is the result. Which confirms my range. Here's the proof of those commands in the code. 1.10.11 The command is right above it. 1.0.8 Missing the command. ( Please note that the code structure drastically changed since the old version so it's not exactly placed where it is. ) Considering the last update that was a little around the time 1.10.11 was around, in the !ff menu where the PV devs overwrite the plugin versions and everything with their own versions (tsk tsk), I believe that the version is in the upper range of the numbers of the elderly server plugin that is. Hopefully updates can get back rolling somehow.
