Reset Date: Friday July 31st! Details inside

Post by Boss Llama » Wed Jul 29, 2015 5:32 pm

Howdy all!

As we've discussed, the reset of the server to a new map (large size) on expert mode will occur in a couple days. Specifically, it will happen on Friday, July 31st at around 7:00pm central time.

Please make sure to save any items from the current server that you feel are yours and take them to your SP world prior to this date. The current world will cease to exist.

I've been talking with Stevo, who has been kind enough to take some time out of his evening to help us get it set up. We'll lock down the server with a temporary password at around 7:00pm Ville time (Central) Friday evening, and he'll do a reset with our new options. I'll head in to make sure the server is functioning correctly, the map isn't borked, and everything is working as expected. Some time between 7:15 and 7:30 (barring complications) we'll swap the password back to normal and invite everybody in to start the new adventure!

Nothing will be pre-built, and no items will be spawned.

Since permissions seem to be functioning correctly lately (the Celestial Sigil not working isn't a permission issue, it's a programming issue), I'm anticipating leaving the permissions as is (though obviously if we run in to problems, they'll be updated).

I'm still waiting one last bit of info about Server Side Characters/Inventory before saying for sure we'll use it, but it's looking likely we will. It's possible that players will have to create in-game accounts on the server and log in when they connect to play, which is an extra step I know, but ensures a clean server environment. The process is very simple (a one-time account registration, after which it is accomplished simply by typing "/login username password" when you connect), and you get used to it fast.

Questions? Ask 'em here!

Nothing to see here, nothing to see.

(Thanks for that! /facepalm)

Can we set a specific night aside for first time boss battling? I'd hate to miss out on the fun because I was uninformed.

Some of the bosses spawn of their own accord, and are not controllable by us.

It would be nice if we worked together to get the others though!

The Eye/Brain and King Slime show up whenever they want :P I understand that. What if we planned for the summonable bosses (Eater, Skeletron, Wall, etc) on Fridays or something?

I'd say that's perfect timing, Pea! Since we're starting it fresh with new characters and no loot, we'll all be on even footing!

I am super sad that I have to go to a surprise birthday party tonight for the wife's friend. Try to get to hard mode by tomorrow ;)

The new server is up!

Same IP and password as previously.

SSC is enabled, so you can use any character you like, and the inventory/stats will be unique to our server, while not affecting your character in other locations.

THE FIRST TIME YOU LOG IN, you will need to create an account

Simply type "/register" followed by a password of choice (which you won't actually need...)

After that, and each time you connect, just type "/login" and it will verify you and load up your correct inventory.

By way of update, one week has passed, and we entered hard mode tonight. Hallow is to the left.
