Something i'd like to say as well is that by no means is any of this permanent. This is just a temporary setback.
So it's looking as if our current provider is going to be cutting off the services with our current provider. I had a slight feeling this might happen. So it looks like we'll be moving our Center server over to another host until things can get resolved.
This will mean that you all should start moving your dinos and items over to The Center since we will be putting The Island and Scorched Earth into the vault if you will (Backing them up and holding onto them). That means player files, the world file. All of that will be held onto. Until we can get the 3 linked server arrangement back up and running.
I will also have no problem moving peoples player files over to the other servers.
Also, nothing will be lost on these worlds while they're tucked away. Nothing will be wiped. Nothing will get rolled back. So you dont have to fear of any loss. The moment the world is put back on a new server it will be just as you left it. No starved dinos, and no structures lost.
The host insists they are building their own server and should have it back up and running around late november to early december. From there on out we should have a stable service wherein we can bring hack the 3 linked servers.
Information as of 10/23 So Adrondre has offered to help us out with the server situation. We're gonna stick with 1 server for the time being until we can get a nice strong rig to handle all 3 at once. Once that is done we should be good.
Are there any caves on the Center that have equally good loot crates as the Islands swamp cave?
Once we've got a rig to open it up on, sure. But we dont even have that yet.
Robin's question was going to be my next question. I'm chill with going to the Center, as I do love that map. But it'd be wonderful to at least get some of my creatures and gear from the Island.
Is it possible to open the Island/SE for a few days? initially they were due to be in stasis for 1-2 months so I didn't transfer everything across, but there are some Dino's and BPs I'd really like if they are to be closed for the foreseeable future.
Thing is. Noone logged into it other than kristoph and I for 1 whole month before I made the announcement. Everyone moved over to SE and Center once those opened up.
Woops, just noticed your message about the Discord. I'll try to find you on there soon. But I've still said what I wanted to say here.
Also, I'm sorry for spamming the shoutbox. I don't know of a better way to talk to you directly, Alpheus.
I know myself and several others have been waiting for it to come out of stasis. We've spent so much time and put in so much work on the Island. We don't want to start from scratch on the Center.
