cerebralcow Posted April 17, 2017 Share Posted April 17, 2017 At the beginning of the year I started a community with a dedicated server and a discord server. I've always used the discord server as the main communication service. After a couple months I made a steam group but told everyone we wouldn't use it for communication much. I've posted info on there and thats about it. people have joined it so I make announcements on there occasionally on the weekend when the 3 main members (including me) get on the server to play. Besides us 3 there are only about half a dozen people who get on the server repeatedly. I have tried a few different things to make the server more appealing to the average player. Like getting rid of the extra equip slot mod after a few months. But the number of people playing on the server doesn't seem to grow very much. Our main world is up on Saturdays from 10AM till 10PM EST and Sundays from 2PM till 7PM EST. This is when were most active and were usually in voice chat. Our weekday world is public and running survival mode. Our play style (in the weekend world) is based on creating one main base with lots of resources for everyone to share and long games that last hundreds of days. We also likes planning boss fights and events. We like testing out strategies and helping other players learn. We don't restart the world often. We only play with a few mods, none that are too game changing. Both worlds have the same mods enabled. To people who have been leading a growing DST community for a while: what have you done that works the best for getting people to join the server consistently? and what are some things not to do?
