Server Event: Still Dreaming - 20 Years Later

Sylverant is a homebrew open source server for Phantasy Star Online. Dreamcast users still play PSO online with this server even today! This is the official forum for both the online game server as well as the open source project itself. Feel free to post and get a gathering started online! We can also show you how to get connected!

Server Event: Still Dreaming - 20 Years Later

Post by BlueCrab » Sun Sep 08, 2019 11:21 pm

The Dreamcast was released 20 years ago on 9/9/99 in the US, so let’s celebrate it’s birthday! Oh yeah, and let’s celebrate the 10th anniversary of Sylverant while we’re at it.

Event Information:
Start Time: September 9, 2019 @ 09:00 EDT / 13:00 UTC (@583)
End Time: September 23, 2019 @ 09:00 EDT / 13:00 UTC (@583)

Twenty years ago, the Sega Dreamcast was released to much fanfare in the US. All this time later, we are still dreaming.
Ten years ago, the Sylverant PSO Server was first introduced to the world, and here we are still going strong.
Collect Dreamcast accessories to keep the dream alive for many more years to come. Yes, this event is open to all supported versions on all platforms, even if we respect the Dreamcast users just a little bit more.

This event is open to all versions of the game currently supported on Sylverant.

Like the previous events, additional trinkets will be rewarded to those that place highly on the leaderboards. Also, like the winter event, there will be various penalties associated with gameplay that might be unfair to everyone else on the server — so don’t be an asshat and try to cheese your way to higher kill counts and such.

(Not So) Fine Print:
  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkills on your account while logged in (with /login or /tlogin). It is only open to those with a registered account on the Sylverant website that have registered their serial number and access key on the site.
  • This event tracks various statistics during your gameplay, including the number of enemies you have killed. Also, kills and various other events that happen in game may reward you with various kinds of Dreamcast Accessories (virtually, of course — nobody’s actually getting any BBAs out of this event). These accessories will be able to be traded in after the event.
  • The list of prizes that can be traded for after the event will be posted at a later date.
  • The /trackkills command must be run on each registered guild card in your account in order to make progress on that guild card.
  • If you used the /trackkills command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to collect trinkets and track your statistics.
  • Cheating of any kind (be it by way of using a cheat device such as a CodeBreaker or by abusing game bugs) is not permitted! Anyone caught cheating in any way is subject to being banned from the server. This event is meant to be fun for everyone, not for a small group of cheaters to run away with it! There have been people disqualified in previous events — don’t become the next one to be disqualified for cheating!
  • Statistics will only be counted on Iselia, Altimira, and Palmacosta. Scripting support is still not quite working on Vega.
  • You may use the /showitems command on a ship to see your currently collected accessory totals.
  • Trinket drop rates may be adjusted as the event goes on. Also, there may be various announced and unannounced incentives for playing at different times during the event period.

I'll definitely hop on sometime today. I know this board is for PSO info, but considering the day, would it be possible to also organize a Quake 3 play? Playing Quake 3 is always awesome, double so on the Dreamcast!

Try asking on the Dreamcast-Talk forum. They play DC games like Quake fairly often.
