It’s been a bumpy week for server wipes and changes. Server 1 became corrupted and was unable to start. Rather than roll back the server, I felt it was time to start anew. Please don’t over build on the servers. Having numerous massive bases affects the server size and lag.
Server 2 has been Scorched Earth for a while now. Starting today it will be wiped in preparation for the procedural maps that are coming tomorrow…I hope coming tomorrow. The mods and the settings will be the same as Server 1, with the exception of a unique one-of-a-kind map that will be new to all of us!
Servers 1 and 2 are being clustered as I write this. This means that you will be able to go to an obelisk and in the top right corner there will be an option to cross over to the other server. If you have a bed placed on the other server you can spawn at it, otherwise you end up in random locations. You can bring dinos with you, but personal belongings like armor and tools will not transfer. Your name and your stats remain the same.
Server 2’s ip address remains the same, but server 1 will have a new one. The name will be slightly modified to show its clustered status.
Server 1’s IP address will be updated on the web page. Hopefully all players are aware that we have a web page. It was originally created the first time we changed IP addresses. Many players were lost at that time as they did not remember the name of the server to be able to search for it, or just thought it was shut down.
Downtime for server 1 may be about 4 hrs while the cluster is being set up.
