A note to all: Cannon has graciously supported the costs of keeping this server going for the last six months on his own dime. Due to his own generosity, and a little forgetfulness, he has not made the community aware of the fact that donations have long since dried up. If you feel moved to express your appreciation for this server with your voluntary donations, please do so. The process of making donations is laid out here. Cannon and the rest of the Staff wish to thank you in advance.
We're working on the web server, so expect slowness and/or temporary downtime over the next 1-2 days as we sort it out, on both the forum and the wiki. We'll try to minimise impact so you shouldn't find it too problematic however.
Cheers for patience.
Edit: Your posts from this point on 'will' be lost when we re-upload the forum database. Please try to refrain from doing any large RP posts, unless you have backups of them beforehand.
We'll announce when this process is completed.
EDIT: The hard part of forum maintenance should be finished for good now. Post in this thread if you find any issues though. Feel free to continue posting like you normally do, data will not be lost from this point onward. We're still working out the other problems, although we hope to have that finished soon.
Thanks to some wonderful work by Alley, a small patch was put in a few minutes ago regarding docking modules. See the below for the functionality of the addition.
- Implemented a base enter notification: if you dock on a base and you have a ship in a docking module, you will be warned about it in chat.
- Removed autojettison on base enter.
- Added /jettisonall : it's a cruel command that instantly eject anyone in a docking module of yours. Do not use on legit docked players as they'll undock from the proxy base.
We have removed all /drawcash passwords as of this day, due to an extremely serious security leak that almost compromised the integrity of the server. Kudos to sindroms for finding and reporting that thing by the way. Our brave admin team has been dealing with it for the past 5 minutes to ensure that none of you lose any cash from your accounts, stopping various hackers, cheaters and phreakers from exploiting the gaping security hole that was open for a brief second. Be thankful.
In other news: It is a REALLY bad idea to put your /drawcash passwords on pastebin with the public setting enabled. Don't do that, we're not going to reset all /drawcash passwords again if that happens and if you lose money because other people know how to use the pastebin search feature - it will be an "oh well" situation.
