What about a zombie server? I have taken two weeks off the 5x server, and i been playing lightly on a zombie server. I gotta say, it's a bunch of fun. One thing, i feel like i can go to sleep more comfortable as their is no PVP, just zombies. Builds a huge community where people can open up stores and chat all day, all they have to worry about is 50% decay and zombies. This can also work for people that get raided on the other servers and can come here to play while the wipe comes. So far, liking it and i would love if there is a zombie server and i would not mind parting with some RL $$$ to help with plugins.
So far, i think this would be a good addition to the servers we currently have. It will take some time to fill, but i believe that over time, it will become fairly populated and attract different minded players. I am here to fully support it and provide feedback and suggest according to my experience with other servers.
Things you would expect from a zombie server:
Full PVE Experience, no PVP and no raiding. There is other servers in Ventrix for that.
Zombies... They drop goodies, and they can become a threat when you find hordes, which can become fun.
50% Upkeep, to keep from players building too big but not make it a hassle to have nice buildings on the server.
Good communities, players will build malls, small towns, role playing related buildings.
People will get to know each, meaning more and much bigger clans will be created in pvp servers if they want to get together and experience pvp.
Community Events, Moderated events and much more!
Helicopter and Bradley can be shared only with people that contribute.
A store for this server, i really think the server would sell itself with people buying Pookies, Cars, oil rigs and many other things. You can put event purchases where someone pays $5 and everyone online gets pookies, supply drops or a gift. Trust me, so far when i am on, there is 40 average and people spend about $50 a day on average, that would be healthy to sustain the server and expand the server range on ventrix.
Anyways, will put more of my opinions later on when im not so fked up. Lol.. drank about 10 shots of jack.
