Hello ye who have ventured here and made SDC your community.

 

Stellar Dawn Central began 7 years ago as MechScape World. We've had a lot of great times. We held contests, we met with Jagex, we held events and we made friends.

 

As most of you know by now, Mark Gerhard is stepping down as CEO of Jagex. He left an enviable legacy with Jagex and has greatly improved RuneScape for the better. One of the projects during his time was Stellar Dawn. He took that project under his wing and tried to nurture it, but expectations fell short and it was put on hiatus. With him leaving, it's looking less and less likely that Stellar Dawn will ever materialize.

 

As such, I will finally be removing Stellar Dawn Central from our VPS server and placing it on a much slower, cheaper server. The forums will remain up as long as I can afford it, but many of the forums will be locked and used as archives only. If you wish to save images and screenshots, please do so soon as I cannot guarantee what will happen in the future.

 

Thank you for being a part of SDC!

 

"What happened to Indie Dungeon?"

Indie Dungeon was a good idea that I never had a lot of time to focus on. We made a prototype website from a framework, but it was never fleshed out. I'd like to revisit the idea in the future, if time permits.

 

"What happened to Ren?"

He has been pretty busy in real life and hasn't visited us for awhile. We hope he's still alive.

 

"How can we get in touch with eachother?"

I will be leaving the Community Affairs forum open and private. If you wish to share your Facebook, Twitter or other contact details with others, feel free to do so. It will be private so only registered users will be able to see it and post.

 

"Can new members still register?"

When I put the forums into archive mode, I will most likely make all new accounts admin-approval only. This is to prevent spammers. All new accounts will have to be hand-approved by admins and it's likely to be a once-in-a-great-while process.

 

"What is PoultryChamp going to do?"

Eh, I'll be around. I'm active on deviantART and RuneScape. You can always find me there or on Facebook and deviantART.

 

"When will the forum archive process take place?"

Soon. Er, well, I have another month on the VPS so it will take place sometime between this week and the middle of November.

Additionally, guests will no longer be able to view the memberslist and member details. This is to prevent web scrapers from grabbing personal details of our members.

Logged in just to say that I've enjoyed my time here on SDC over the years being part of the community.  I've never been as active elsewhere as I have been here.  It's sad to see it end.  Good luck everyone in the future.

I'm certainly going to miss it. Stellar Dawn/Mechscape was a huge part of my life, and I made a great many friendships on this forum, and had many fun times I will remember for years. I still have some hopes that Stellar Dawn will come out, and this forum will get revitalised, and I might get off my lazy butt and actually do some staff work. But those hopes are fading quickly.

It has deffinitly been a fun jounrey here on MSW/SDC.

Ive met a bunch of great people on here. Started great relationships on here. Met my best friends on here. I got to go out to Washington state and stay with PC and MC for a couple of weeks. That was the best vacation of my life.

I hope we will all be able to get together again in the future. Maybe SD will eventually be released and SDC can become a thing again, or we find time and make Indie Dungeon.

I miss interacting with the community everyday. It's hard to find communities like this. I have tons of great memories from here that Ill probably keep with me for the rest of my life.

If you want to stay in touch you can find me on steam as Darth Irule. Just make sure your profile is not private or tell me before hand if it is. (Too many scammers these days)

Hope you all have a great future and you succeed at what you want to do.

Love,
Sean (Darth Irule)

It's been years since I've been on this site, but it's sad to see it (more or less) go. Twas fun being part of the MechScape / Stellar Dawn hype while it lasted!

Ahhh!! I was afraid it would come to this sooner of later. We had some really fun moments and events on this site, and I'm glad to have been a part of it while it was active to the point I came on almost everyday. It was really fun looking forward to Stellar Dawn with you guys, and it's a shame the game is most likely cancelled for sure this time. Maybe if it somehow does come up again any time soon, this forum could be revived with new users coming in and we'd be playing the game with them.

 

Adios!

While I've personally moved on, I'd like to say that the time I spent here active was time well spent, and I feel a bit nostalgic about the good old days when we were all holding onto snippets of info here and there in the hopes we could be a part of the release of a great game.

The server move is complete and we should now be on our new server.
