Some shocking news coming out of PrivateCP. I have just confirmed that it is closing, and they have already taken down the website, and the web-client. They closed due to high server costs, and also because they were afraid of future legal threats by Disney. (they had not received any contact from Disney)
PrivateCP had a great run, they were the first private server to introduce custom items, backgrounds, pins, and even custom rooms, they had thousands of users too – it’s very disappointing to see sure an enthusiastic private server – go offline.
However, I heard that the owners may release the PrivateCP source code – with instructions on how to bring it online on your own server. This could mean that more people could recreate a similar version to PrivateCP. I’ll keep you posted if the Staff does, however decide to release the source.
