I run a modded non primitive+ server, too (I recommend p+ though) for people that want to try it out there. Just send Tyamat or me a message for info.Eta: my friend just passed this week, so I will be away this weekend. Tyamat knows how to get ahold of me if the server breaks or something, I can try to fix it from my phone.
Here's the address again for anyone interested in joining: 188.8.131.52:27465Named ARKiTech. You'll need to get The Center and Primitive + DLC.
Tbh, I'm underwhelmed because there were a few things that were bugged out on me. The knife, for example, would not let me actually use it. I could craft it, but it did nothing. I understand that p+ is still in beta, though so I will hold of on any real judgement until later.
If people prefer, we can go back to Vanilla, maybe limited modded on the Center, but once Primitive + does get loaded in it runs fine from what I've seen. To be honest, the content seems worth the wait, and may be something they address soon now that's it's official DLC.

If that server isn't overly populated, what other servers are people playing on that do have some population right now?
That being said, I do have a line on a public server that just came up that is on the Center using some various improvement mods that are really nifty, and is also a type of RP server. Waiting on a message with the server info but will share the details here when I get it.
The site I made for my server is arkitech.boards.net

With the way the poll is looking, seems as if most people are interested in leaving Primitive + and going to modded on The Center. That being the case, this may be something that happens as early as this week. Perhaps even tonight if I've the energy to muster the transition.
I'm working out the base details as far as server rules and expectations as well as the backstory and other elements such as events, rewards, etc. If anyone has ideas or wishes to help out in any way, let me know. For now, here's the backstory I've written and an intro that may peak some interest:
The human species has come a long way since the Arkitechs bestowed upon them the gifts of knowledge and fire. Wisdom was a gift they withheld, for they wanted to see what potential could evolve from this particular combination of forces. Thus, humankind's penchant for creativity and creation ever battled with it's inclination towards and ability for destruction.
As the years progressed, they were less than pleased with the results of their experiment, and resolved to begin anew. They would design and build a vast landscape, rendered to existence with technology beyond the comprehension of even some of the most ancient of races. It is here that select specimens would be relocated for evaluation, and it is here they would be tested in ways they never knew imaginable.
Those who failed to adapt and evolve, past the point of mere survival, would be forgotten. For the few, capable of not only adapting and surviving this harsh new world, but able to actually thrive....they would be the future of the human race. The new beginning of a legacy that would come to be called...
Survival isn't enough.
Chapter 1: The Arrival
He woke up on a beach, face down in the gritty sand as waves broke against the shore, sending water lapping at his feet. Cracking open his eyes, the sun drove lances of painful light into them, forcing them closed once more. After a few more tries he was able to start making out his surroundings and, groaning with the effort, slowly pushed himself up to take a tentative look around.
He was hungry. He was thirsty. He had a million questions and no answers. Where were his clothes? How did he get here? Where -was- here? No answers came to his silent inquiries. As he surveyed the beach, littered with broken branches and strewn with pebbles, he found himself reaching to scratch his forearm; it itches something fierce. Looking down, he was taken aback to see a piece of diamond-shaped metal with a dimly glowing light deep into the skin! Frantically reaching to dig it out, his fingers brushed the edges and a wave of crippling pain send him sprawling into the sand once more.
After a few more moments he sat up again, grunting with the effort. Deciding against trying to remove the strange device in his arm, he took and opportunity to really survey his surroundings. It would appear he had been stranded on some remote island, but all hope was not lost. He'd watched enough survival shows to know that there were hundreds of shipping lanes which went through all parts of the tropics and right by islands.
Resolving to be rescued as soon as possible, he hauled himself to his feet and brushed the sand off before setting out along the beach to collect driftwood and some rocks. If he was going to be rescued, he'd need a fire....a big one, and also something to eat and drink.
Little did he know this was merely the beginning of a long and arduous adventure, one that would either make....or break him.
