IMPORTANT! Server Reset April 15th

Post by Karride » Fri Mar 28, 2014 10:09 pm

Sometime after 10pm Central on the April 15th, I will be resetting the server. This will be a full reset, so factions, blueprints, everything will be gone.

Why am I doing this?
  • Store locations: This is the primary reason I want to reset. When this server was setup, there was a bug in the creation of shops, you may have noticed that shops tend to be very sparse in most places. At the same time, sometimes you will come across a group of sectors the have a *ton* of shops very close together. Resetting will regenerate the shops and distribute them properly
  • New manned shop: by resetting, we will get a manned shop in 2,2,2 so you can hire crew.
  • Dead user/ship/faction removal: doing a reset will get rid of single person factions, as well as inactive ships and users.

After the reset, I will probably change a few settings:
  • Uplinked users: I will probably make our server an uplinked username only server, and restrict each user to a max of 2 accounts on the server.
  • Collision damage: I will probably turn on collision damage, makes you a little more mindful of just bouncing into things.
  • Blueprints: I may reduce the amount of blueprints a player can have. On the fence about this one.

So what about all your stuff? Well I have a plan for that too, which is why we will not do this before the 15th.
  • Stations/Planets: Email me the sector the station or planet is in, and I will export that sector, and then re-import it after the reset.
  • Ships: Before the reset, move your ship into a sector you are having exported above, or move your ship to -1 4 -1, this sector will be exported and re-imported after the reset.
  • Blueprints: again, before the reset, simply email me the blueprint name and I'll export it and re-import it
[/list]
In all of the above cases, we will have to re-establish your ownership of the ship once you have logged in and recreated your account.

Hi! I just found this server and it looks like it's exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I don't really see much point in starting here if the server is just getting wiped in 2 weeks. Is there any way that can be moved up or something?

Unfortunately, it wouldn't be very fair to my regulars who are expecting this to happen on the 15th to move it up.
If you think we are what you are looking for can I tempt you with a bribe of building blocks to give you a nice headstart? :D Like I said, we can re-import your stuff, so nothing will be lost by starting now.
