I have decided to add a FAQ on the upcoming Mirai.SO, on which was an insight in a recent interview I took part in for CPPS Galaxy.
All information provided below a direct quotes from myself & are set to change at any given time.
What gave you/the team the idea to bring back Mirai?
The team felt that it was only right to do so. We have worked entirely on making the user experience the most enjoyable it can possibly be, and from the beginning of Oasis we wanted the user to have the experience that we strive so hard to achieve. We have developed Oasis into being one of the most advanced CPPS’ ever, with unique features that has never been seen on a CPPS before. Tybone has worked hard into giving Oasis its name, putting in countless work into making Oasis a unique, comfortable cpps that any user can login and enjoy. From the inspiration in the past, our user rate has slowly declined, and the numbers were not there. We also felt that from hearing directly from our users, they missed Mirai, the server was perfect for many, with it having features that users cannot ‘live without’ and for a lot of users, the start of many friendships beginning on Mirai. We only felt right to bring it back, once again, coming down to a team decisions for the best. We are super excited for the users to check it out, we all know you will love it as much as you loved it in the past.
Will Mirai be different to what it used to be?
No. What we want to bring back is exactly how we left off. All old features that were on Mirai, will be brought back for our new launch. Including the design of the game, and the website in entirety. We simply want to pick up where we left off, and that is in simple our goal is to trigger the memories of our users, as we want the user to enjoy the game. What the CPPS community really needs right now is a CPPS that they felt like home on, and for this reason Mirai is being brought back, to make the user want to return to. Remembering Mirai will be a completely different CPPS from Oasis, it will have features that will blow your mind, if you have never experienced it before. Although, the team are currently working on some features that you may have never seen on a CPPS before, meaning a first in the CPPS community.. and by looking at them now, you will absolutely love these brand new innovative features, never to be seen before. For those who do not know, Mirai is the successor to Oasis. Not everything from Oasis will be available on Mirai. The reason for this is because the team felt Oasis had too much. Oasis just felt bulky. So, our goal for Mirai is for it to be not too simple and not too complex. We want everything to be easy to use, and we want the server to be enjoyable.
How long has Mirai been in development?
Mirai has been in the development process for the past couple of weeks. The server is currently being in the processes of being restored, along with changing the website design slightly, still looking identical to the old website, but a neater view. Mirai is currently still in the development process and is slowly making its way to the finish line, of our expected launch date in November, but is subject to change.
Who is the team behind Mirai?
A) The team consists of the current Oasis team. Which are myself (Michael), Chris, Alana, Izzy & Lorie. Mirai will be run by a different administration team, to Oasis, which you will have the chance to find out later upon Mirai‘s launch. We will be looking to hire and expand our team to a much more bigger spectrum, and our team will be recruiting upon launch.. so start drafting those Moderator applications!
What will make Mirai the best CPPS?
We don’t want to get out of our way in saying we are the best CPPS.. even though we know it will be bigger than anything ever seen before, and a ‘MUST PLAY’ server. The server will be re-birthed into something unique and dynamic to play. Our reasons for re-creating Mirai are simple: we want to make a server that can be enjoyable for all. Our goal is to not only please all of our users, but to be innovative as well. Mirai will have many features, but not so much as to overwhelm anyone, including ourselves. Mirai will become a CPPS to attract a bigger market, and have a many servers which can support large amounts of players at once. The up-time for Mirai will be high, and will have plenty of things to do throughout your time on Mirai. The team on Mirai is one of the most perfect hand-crafted moderator teams a server has ever came across, and we take pride in holding such high values within a team. This again, will benefit the user experienced highly and become a server that will reach a large-scale audience, from where all original Mirai users (40,000 users) will receive an email from us, notifying them upon launch, along with all current Oasis players (60,000 users). That is a combined reach for 100,000+ audience we will hopefully be attracting back.
Will Mirai have custom Items available?
Mirai will again have Custom Items. With many favourites returning. We will also be working on hiring a Designer, on which can continuously focus on creating brand new custom items for Mirai, along with taking on custom item suggestions from our community, as we value interaction with our users to a high extent.
Will Mirai have VIP?
Mirai will not have VIP. As we are bringing back Mirai exactly how it was, we will not be including the VIP rank. Although, we will have a credit store, on where you can purchase special features to enhance your Mirai experience. With that, we are bringing back your old favourites, with the Snowball Server to earn credits, and find four matches (with hopefully soon a leader-board) to allow you to gain credits. If you have had VIP features on Oasis, that can be transferred to your Mirai account via access of your account key, which can be found via https://account.oasis.ps/login. This key holds all details of you account, on which will make it an easy transfer of key items such as your account details to Mirai. Alike the transfer in the past from Penguin Oasis to Mirai, it will be completed with ease, so no need to worry if you are lost and confused, we will make this transition as easy as possible for you.
