    And... Just like that, the maintenance is complete. Please let me know if anything is broken/not working/etc.
  • Sep 17, 2022 11:58:49 UTC:
    Sylverant will be down for a few minutes this morning for some maintenance. Hopefully this won't last more than 15 minutes or so.
  • Mar 29, 2022 22:39:53 UTC:
    @El_Comanche There is indeed a discord for the server, where many players communicate: https://t.co/YcpDXGU4JH There is also a forum: https://t.co/6EYlEOzpg7 , although more people are definitely on the discord these days. Hope you enjoy the server. :)

    @dragonminded @GabeMoralesVR @Artemio Yeah, KOS definitely hasn't had support for "years" just yet (can't say 2 years until February). And it is definitely still nowhere near a state that I'd call it "usable" for anything more than the basics of getting something on the screen, as has already been said.

Server Event: New Year’s Celebration

Friday, December 31st, 2021

2021 is coming to a close. Hopefully 2022 brings plenty more PSO to all of us.

Event Information:
Start Time: January 1, 2022 @ 05:00 UTC (@250)
End Time: January 29, 2022 @ 05:00 UTC (@250)

Description:
While it may seem like it has been ages, the new year is finally upon us. Welcome in the promise of a new year full of PSO here on Sylverant.

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

System Description:
This event combines various event mechanisms that have been used in previous events. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop tokens that you can use to trade in after the event for various in-game prizes. There are global counters for various in-game events that will be used as goals to provide bonuses to the token drop rates. In addition, there will be a leaderboard for the event based on collecting Battle Points (BP). Your BP will be tallied up silently as you progress through the game. BP will not be used for trading for prizes — it will only be used to determine the leaderboard statics. This event also allows the use of augmenters that you have purchased with your tokens previous events.

(Not So) Fine Print:

  • This event, like previous events, requires you to have enabled /trackkill 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 tokens. As with previous event tokens, these tokens will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • The /trackkill 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn tokens and track your statistics.
  • Cheating of any kind (be it by way of using a cheat device such as a CodeBreaker/Action Replay 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /tokens command on a ship to see your current number of each token.
  • You may use the /showbp command on a ship to see your current BP total.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • The /augs command will display how many of each type of augmenter you have on your guild card.
  • The /active command will display the timer for each type of augmenter you have active currently.
  • The /useaug1, /useaug2, /useaug3, /useaug4, /useaugK, /useaugA, and /useaugB commands use level 1, level 2, level 3, level 4, K-type, A-type, and B-type augmenters, respectively.
  • The /useaugs command can be used to use multiple augmenters at once. To use it, specify a comma-separated list of types of augmenters to use (1,2,3,4,k,b,a) optionally followed by a space and a count of each to use (from 1-9). For instance, to use one of each of the K, B, and A types, you can use “/useaugs k,a,b” (without the quotes, of course). To use two of each of the numbered types, you can do “/useaugs 4,2,1,3 2” (ordering doesn’t matter for the comma-separated part). Like the other /useaug commands, this command may only be used in a team.
  • Each of the numbered levels of augmenters has the effect of boosting token drop rates for 30 minutes. Using multiple of the same augmenter will add more time onto this timer. The timer runs whether or not you are logged in — so if you log in, use two of an augmenter and then log out, your augmenters will still expire 60 minutes later.
  • Using multiple different levels of augmenters has a synergistic effect on drop rates.
  • The K-type, A-type, and B-type augmenters boost the amounts of statistics counted by the event. The effects can be helpful in working toward server-wide goals.
  • Token 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.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your token drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Event Information:
Start Time: October 23, 2021 @ 04:00 UTC (@208)
End Time: November 6, 2021 @ 04:00 UTC (@208)

Description:
The monsters of Ragol are holding a party for the Halloween season — but they didn’t even think to invite us Hunters. Don your best costume and crash the party to restore the peace!

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

Server Event: PSO 20th Anniversary

Monday, December 21st, 2020

It has been 20 years since our journey to Ragol began. Let’s have an event to celebrate.

Event Information:
Start Time: December 21, 2020 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)
End Time: January 18, 2021 @ 22:00 UTC (@958)

Description:
20 years ago, on December 21, 2000, Sonic Team and SEGA released Phantasy Star Online for the Dreamcast in Japan — truly bringing to a start the world of online RPGs on video game consoles. To commemorate the 20th anniversary of the game that has kept us all enthralled for all this time, go out and rid Ragol (and/or some simulations) of the enemies that prowl.

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

System Description:
This event combines various event mechanisms that have been used in previous events. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop tokens that you can use to trade in after the event for various in-game prizes. There are global counters for various in-game events that will be used as goals to provide bonuses to the token drop rates.

Server Event: Candy Caper 2

Tuesday, October 20th, 2020

By this point, it’s a Halloween tradition around here to have an event, so… Here goes…

Event Information:
Start Time: October 21, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: November 4, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
Somehow, a Delsaber has infiltrated Pioneer 2 and stolen all of the Halloween treats. Worse yet, he has hidden it with enemies all over Ragol. Hunt down monsters on Ragol to find the delicious Halloween treats!

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

System Description:
This event is similar in structure to the two previous events in that there is not a competitive leaderboard associated with it. Each enemy you kill (or help with killing) and each box you break will have a chance to drop various types of Halloween treats, which will be useful after the event to trade in for various in-game prizes. Like the last two, various global counters have been implemented for in-game actions taken by everyone playing that will boost your potential gains for token drop rates later on in the event.

(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 treats. As with previous event tokens, these treats will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn treats 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /treats command on a ship to see your current totals of the various treats.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • Treat 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.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your treat drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Server Event: Apart, but Together

Tuesday, April 28th, 2020

Many around the world are cooped up at home due to the current situation that’s facing us all… So, let’s have an event to encourage safe social interaction (virtually, of course).

Event Information:
Start Time: April 29, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: May 20, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
While we may be forced apart on Earth for the time being, no Earth-bound virus can stop us from meeting on Ragol. Find a few friends (virtually) and collect points for working together to rid Ragol of the enemies that prowl it.

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

System Description:
This event is similar in structure to the Wondrous Winter 2 event in that there is not a competitive leaderboard associated with it. Each enemy you kill in-game while on the server will give you some number of battle points (BP), which will be useful after the event to trade in for various in-game prizes. Like last event, various global counters have been implemented for in-game actions taken by everyone playing that will boost your potential gains for BP later on in the event.

(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 BP. As with previous event tokens, BP will be used to trade for various in-game prizes after the event has ended.
  • 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 /trackkill command in the earlier events, unless you have since disabled it, you will be able to earn BP 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 are tracked across all ships in the server.
  • You may use the /showbp command on a ship to see your current BP total.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a BP rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • BP 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.
  • Logging on with multiple clients at the same time to try to increase your BP drop rate or kill counter will be severely penalized.

Edit: 6/1/2020 @ 11:55 PM EDT: The token exchange period has begun for the event. The list of prizes is available on this forum post. The exchange period will run through June 16, 2020 at 00:00 UTC.

Server Event: Wondrous Winter 2

Monday, December 16th, 2019

The winter season is upon us, so how about another server event?

Event Information:
Start Time: December 17, 2019 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)
End Time: January 17, 2020 @ 00:00 UTC (@041)

Description:
The weather outside might well be frightful, so it’s a good thing you’re probably not playing PSO out there. Collect metallic prize tokens in-game to trade in for various in-game prizes in January!

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

Prizes:
This event does not have a leaderboard associated with it. Instead, a global kill counter has been implemented. As various goals are met on the global kill counter, rates for the tokens dropped in game will increase. Like previous events, there are various penalties for those that try to use gameplay techniques that are unfair to everyone else on the server — so don’t try to be an asshat.

(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 tokens. These tokens 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 should be able to be tracked on all ships of the server, finally.
  • You may use the /tokens command on a ship to see your currently collected token totals.
  • The /goal command will display the current global kill count and what the next goal is for a token drop rate increase. This data will only update when you switch floors or join/leave a team.
  • 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.
  • The kill counter will be displayed on the website at a later date, when I get a chance to set it up.

Edit (January 25, 2020): The token redemption period for the event has begun. Please see this post on the forum for more information. Token redemption will end at 00:00 UTC on February 9, 2020.

  10. Mordarion – 5291

For assists, the top 10 are as follows:

  1. Apocalypse612 – 4437
  2. Jaxxer – 4276
  3. Blst – 3271
  4. Chuck Norris – 3193
  5. Aleron Ives – 1976

  7. Kabes – 1646
  8. dcdingo – 1644
  9. zakmat – 1511
  10. 68kdude – 1204

Each of the placers on these lists have already received BBAs to trade. Just like last event, 1st and 2nd place on each list will get 5, and so on down to 9th and 10th place each getting 1 BBA.

And because Aleron Ives still seems to enjoy me keeping track of boxes being broken, just like last time, prizes (VMUs) were given out to those who got in the top 20 on that list.

The full leaderboard is available to view here, including all three of these tracked categories.

Information on how to claim prize parts for leaderboard placement as well as how to trade in parts is available on this forum post. You will be able to trade things in up until October 17, 2019 at 04:00 UTC.
