Wurm Online Relaunch this Friday, 24th

The Wurm Online Relaunch is happening on Steam with brand new servers for the MMO and SSR will be there. We’ll be on the PvP server with a sizeable roster for the release of the MMO. This isn’t a Wurm Unlimited remake. It is the full MMO under the new management and ownership. As a result, new graphics, UI, tweaks to combat, and server rules make for an exciting experience. We’re hoping will lead to what SSR has always been about: strategy and organization that matter.

Check out the Steam Launch Trailer if you haven’t already seen it.

We’re Pulling Out all the Stops for the Wurm Online Relaunch

With the new Discord Bot system in place we’ve got a Prefect Bot that handles nearly all of our immigration tasks, plus a Minstrel Bot to play tunes for you while you mine, farm, build, and hunt. If all goes according to plan, we’ll be rolling out our currency system along with banking, marketplace, contracting, and awards. Moreover, you’ll be able to earn premium awards in the game that will translate to your profile here on the website.

Need some new dice for your D&D group? Earn enough premium currency with us in the community and you might just get them for free or heavily discounted through the community store. We’ve also got custom mugs, glasses, shirts, and other stuff coming out soon.

You can earn D&D miniatures just by being a part of the Republic! Earn points during the Wurm Online Relaunch and beyond.
Earn discounts on D&D minis for being an active member of the community!

Get on Discord. Get in the Game.

All of our coordination is taking place on the Discord with the usual mix of Google Sheets and Docs, so make sure you register today and join us for this next adventure. It’s shaping up to be quite the venture and we’re rolling out even more of what SSR does best in preparing and planning for the game.

See you on Friday, the 24th! We’re hoping the Wurm Online Relaunch will get the band back together.

Quarantine Gaming with the Silver Sun Republic

Now is the time to get into something to help you with the monotony and SSR has got your back with three established branches. Life is Feudal MMO just wiped, Star Wars: The Old Republic quenches the theme park MMO thirst, and Conqueror’s Blade just launched what I’m dubbing, their SSR season complete with Italian (specifically Florence) themed units, skins, and scenarios. Yep, you heard that correctly, it’s almost as if they reached into my brain and asked me what would get me back into the game. You can unlock Condottieri Guard (swordsmen), Italian Pikes, Pavise Crossbowmen, and mortars (yep, mobile siege weapons, not entirely historically accurate, but hey, neither is the game by any means!).

In the piazza of the Signoria

Life is Feudal MMO

Get back to one of our more recent successes and join the crew as they rebuild after the recent wipe. One of the greatest tweaks is the reduction in maintenance costs for claims. It should make the game less of an imperative to log in every day just to replenish your coins. That alone eases up the stress from the game and makes it much more enjoyable. We’re bordering on the safe zone, so whatever you’re craving for safety or danger happens to be there are options to settle where you want.

Star Wars: The Old Republic

We’re part of the Sith Empire as always in SWTOR on the Star Forge server jumping on Flashpoints and putting together Operations as people show interest. Level up to 75 or hang out around 50 on the Free to Play option; whatever you want! Plenty of content is still accessible on the complete free option.

Conqueror’s Blade

Check out this video to help explain all the new additions. We’re on the NA server in Ostaria. MilitaryGamers has invited us to join them and their alliance as they fight for Territory Control in the game. Now is a GREAT time to return and fight it out with us!

Plenty of Other Stuff Too!

We still host random game nights including Stellaris and The Guild 3 as well as Crusader Kings II. Just hit us up on Discord as always.

In other news, the SSR Novel is coming along nicely. I have the novel done through Chapter 6 with a 30,000 word count. The current content is laid out to be 20 chapters at 100,000 words making it a full fantasy length novel. Additionally, there is an SSR tabletop game in the works using the novel as the setting. If all goes according to plan, we will have a Kickstarter coming out later this year. I’ve shared the first three chapters of it to Discord, so give it a read and let me know what you think.

October 25th Set Sail For Adventure with the Silver Sun Free Company

Adventure on the High Seas with SSR

One of more recent forays into the competitive PvP scene was ATLAS where SSR led the charge against countless zergs providing strategic and tactical guidance to several alliances. Now we get that opportunity again flying under our own banner as Privateers as the Silver Sun Free Company chartered under the Royal Navy on the Darkside RP server for their 4.0 season in ATLAS.

Bringing All Guns to Bear

SSR will be hitting it hard again this time with our brand new automated and bot driven systems online along with the new website membership profiles. The Prefect Bot and other Bots will be showing up to assist in how we organize and coordinate the group. Merits and Writs of Achievement will be issued to members of the community. With these writs you’ll be able to redeem them for discounts and even FREE stuff on our webstore operated by Military Gamer Supply. That means for participating with SSR in ATLAS you’ll be able to earn FREE and discounted stuff on our webstore. You might even be able to get some SSR miniatures for our new tabletop game coming up at the end of this year.

Make Sure You’re There for Launch

On 25 October, the server is supposed to go live. In order to get ahead of the rush, you’ll want to apply for access by visiting the Darkside RP website. The registration process takes a bit and it will be likely that you won’t get immediate access due to the nature of the launch, but by registering early you’ll be much closer to the front of the line.

Check Out Our Branch Page for ATLAS

We managed to save quite a few photos of SSR in ATLAS, so make sure you check out the branch page for images of our involvement there.

Plans for ATLAS After the Wipe

Greetings,

For ATLAS following the upcoming wipe, the Republic will return to the game as a branch under the leadership of Lord Governor Hlakke. There are two options for us, specifically, the RP server and the NA-PvP server. The decision for which server to join will be up to the Lord Governor. This arrangement will allow us to stick with Life is Feudal and offer up the option to enjoy ATLAS under the Republic’s banner.

Sail under the banner of the Republic in ATLAS!

By striking a balance we can achieve a constant stream of activity between the two games. Our focus on PvP will transfer between the two games as coordination is everything and that is where we excel.

Coordination is key to victory.

TES3 Morrowind: Modception!

Fellow Citizens of the Republic,

The following is a guide on how to install the mods required to join our tes3MP server.  Check it out and hit us up on Discord if you have any questions and to get the Server Name and password.  See you around Morrowind!

First things first, if you haven’t seen my first guide on how to install and run Tes3MP than please do so now.

Let’s start off with Morrowind Rebirth! Morrowind Rebirth is a total overhaul for The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind with the aim to enhance the game play by balancing certain aspects of the game, and by giving the player more to see and do. This mod has added a lot to the game while still keeping it’s core concept true to Morrowind.

You’ll have to first download Morrowind Code Patch here

You’ll have grab this mod before you can install “Morrowind Rebirth”

Installation: Extract the zip to your Morrowind directory, the one with the Morrowind program in it (not Data Files).

Run the Morrowind Code Patch program. If Morrowind is installed in Program Files, you will need to run it as administrator.

If you get a MSVCR100.dll error, you need to download and install Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86) from Microsoft.

After you’ve Run the Morrowind Code Patch program, you’ll see a list of patches that the program will grab and install for you. Many of these are great and this is all personal preference. After you’ve made your selection click “apply chosen patches” below.

Now we move on to Morrowind Rebirth which you can grab here.

Installation: 

Very simple, drag Data Files into your Morrowind install folder…that’s it.

Now we move on to the simple stuff!! Signs!!!

Yes this is purely a mod that converts the sign textures to actual words we can read in-game. Really neat mod. Grab it here.

Installation: 

1. Copy the content of this package to “Morrowind/Data Files”.
2. Enable the plugin using the Morrowind Launcher. (more on this below)

Precise Attack is a mod that makes our adventuring a bit easier by allowing us to hit more often in the early days of our character. Grab it here

Install by moving Precise Attack.esp into “Morrowind/Data Files”.

Now that you’ve installed all the mods it’s time to enable the plugins in your Morrowind Launcher. Go to Data Files tab

Please make sure each plugin is checked and drag them so they are identical to the Screen Shot. This is important because if you have a plugin out of the turn order than you wont be allowed into the server.

That’s it! Enjoy your time in Morrowind and if you have any mod suggestions please let me know! (already looking into better bodies mod and some others)

 

 

TES3: Morrowind GOTY Installation Instructions for tes3MP

Fellow Citizens of the Republic,

The following is a guide on how to get TES III: Morrowind set up on your PC to play multiplayer with the community.  Check it out and hit us up on Discord if you have any questions and to get the Server Name and password.  See you around Morrowind!

Buy TES3: Morrowind GOTY from Steam for $14.99 or other sites like Kinguin or GoG for cheaper. Download and install the game like normal.

Head on over to: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/mwmulti/discussions/2/353915309331818721/
Click on the 1st link, (Version 0.6.1), Download the zip and extract.

Run openmw-wizard.exe from the tes3mp folder

Point the setup to your Morrowind installation

Go to Morrowind > Data Files > Morrowind.esm, continue clicking next until installation finishes.

After installation is complete run the “OpenMW Launcher” from the tes3mp folder from before. Click Data Files above.

Drag Bloodmoon.esm down to Tribunal.esm, once you do the little exclamation mark inside the yellow triangle should disappear. At this point you can change any graphics or settings you want.

After you click play you’ll be brought to the server browser list, from here you’ll see all the servers that are online and thier stats. KEEP IN MIND YOU ARE RUNNING VERSION 0.6.0 NOT 0.6.1 and you wont be able to join 0.6.1 servers without the installation. You can always go back and install 0.6.1, but this latest update isn’t the most stable atm (less than a week old) so i would stick with 0.6.0. for now. EDIT: After testing 0.6.1 myself I have seen it to be a good version of the mod,
please download that and join us on our server.

The Republic Marches to War!

Onward, dear citizens, to victory for the almighty Republic under the guiding light of our Radiant Lady, Requesta!

His Grace, the Doge beckons to all who would hear his voice and summons all able bodied citizens to take up arms in service to the Crowned Republic of the Silver Sun.  Take up the sword, bow, hammer, saw and scythe in victory as the Kingdom of Hyperion rises again from the ashes to claim its rightful place among the annals of history.

All are summoned to Discord (http://discord.silversunrepublic.com) to gather each Sunday at 6 PM CST / 7 PM EST to organize and prepare to march under the banner of the Silver Sun, blessed nation of the free peoples of our realm.  In this assembly you will find the soldiers of Requesta honing their talents and building their strength.


Furthermore, citizens are called upon to assist in spreading the word of our glorious Republic and may find more information by reading this article:

The Republic’s strength is found in her people and you are the mortar upon which this mighty nation is built.  Go forth and let us declare victory as we come together in preparation for the upcoming campaign.

If you have not been with us for some time, there are several resources to help you learn about the ways we have made ourselves more efficient and better organized to give you more depth in exploring your life within the Republic.

Join the Republic in a Mobile Game: DomiNations

While we wait for things to heat up with Life is Feudal and to keep us all gaming together when our daily lives force us away from a PC friendly schedule, we have started grouping up on a mobile game that fits the playstyle of the Republic.  It won’t overwhelm your schedule and allows you to stay in touch with us while going about the rest of your offline life.  The game is called DomiNations and plays like a mash up between Age of Empires and Clash of Clans.

Players pick a civilization to carry through from the Stone Age all the way up to a more modern setting with the new Atomic Age recently being unlocked for play.  A Revolution system also allows players to swap out civilizations as they progress.

As usual, the game comes with an Alliance system and of course SSR already has your back with our own alliance, called “Silver Suns” that you can join once you’ve repaired the Alliance related building in the game.

For those concerned about “Pay to Win,” there is an element of that in the game.  There are “crowns” that serve as the premium gems that you’re used to by now in most games and you can complete offers to get more like installing another app and getting to a certain level, watching ads or accomplishing tasks in the game that will build up your coffers.  In regards to needing the crowns en masse, it will be many months, possibly even a year, plus before the group would even be in a position to worry about that.  You can also get premium items, boosters and units through items obtained in the game anyways.  Our main goal is to progress together and compete in “World Wars” that a solid alliance can participate in at any level to score added benefits.  The match making system is pretty decent and will pair us up against alliances within our medal and age progression range.

There will be a channel on our Discord for people to share info about the game, but the in-game chat is also useful within the Alliance.  Speaking of which, if you’re not on Discord and monitoring chat you’re definitely missing out on other news like Life is Feudal and other game nights we host together, so hop on at http://Discord.SilverSunRepublic.com

The Republic is all about building up a community, so we’re all about more than just one game and one style of play.  We’re open to suggestions on where you want to game.  Let us know if you’re interested in DomiNations by joining us on Discord to jumping right into the game and applying to the Alliance.  We want to game with you and this is one way we can make that happen!

Check out the game on the Google Play and iPhone app stores by searching for DomiNations.
