    Is it possible that, with enough support from the community, there can be a Devinity Starbound Server?

    It's much more widespread and newcomer friendly than Terraria because difficulty scales individually for each player rather than one person controlling the progression (;)). There are also an incredibly large amount of planets for everyone to use/explore. I know that some people on the forums already play it as well so we could have a contingent of players from the beginning if need be.

    The community box got removed because it wasn't being used as often but I would love to host servers on it again for gaming sessions

    The problem that Starbound has - same as Terraria: There are no dedicated servers or server browsers for that shit. Even the official forums or server lists have just outdated IP's and versions. People just would not catch us.

    Well, the only way someone could find out about our Terraria server was through the forums and it was passworded, so discovery is not the primary focus.

    And @Donkie I'm not entirely sure but there are guides on how to host dedicated using GNU/Linux.

    But the issue is that noone finds it, how do you want to run it monthly? DDoS protection, Server Running Costs if no new users donate?

    The purpose of the community servers is supposed to be Devinity-based only–so only Devinity members are allowed to join so as long as they have the password which is intended. I don't think we really need those costly features, maybe just enough to host a single, 16 slot server for gaming sessions is good for me.

    Then everyone can do that. Even me. You don't need to even make a dedicated server for that reason, cuz the whole damn universe will be in hands of just 16 guys (or gals).

    Well, the point is that it's a community server being hosted for the community. There isn't necessarily something wrong with the server being a vanilla one or it being able to be created by anyone. Of course anybody could just get a dedicated server running, but it's also possible for it to be a community serverbox with the sole purpose of hosting it. There's just more clarity and consistency than having a person host it. Maybe their system can't handle it. Maybe they have time restraints. In essence, there are variables when it comes to just anyone doing it. And comparably, running it on the box would be easier.
