Status Update The transfer will still likely happen sometime tomorrow or latest by Wednesday. There was unforeseen delays and we'll keep you posted. Some information: IPs will change. Players money will reset to 10,000 Bits. Map Credit Request is still open. Players inventory will NOT reset. Shop will be updated. Winter map is coming. Halloween map, I heard was okay and will likely add one server for PvE and PvP. Hey everyone! It’s time to have a talk about the upcoming changes for our Unturned Servers and what to expect. Map Reset Two weeks ago we conducted a poll about resetting the maps on all servers to reduce lag. There is a lot of unused bases that’s making us do this. Even though the statistics say we should reset the map every 3 months and 6 months is right behind it. The idea we’re thinking would be to possibly not reset it at all and if we need to it would be every 6 Months. Demolition Team We will have a special Moderators team that will be in a sub group called (“Demolition Team”) and will go around and remove unused/griefed bases in attempt to reduce lag, increase performance and overall extend the map lifespan up to 6 Months. Once we reset the map, the clock isn’t going to immediately start as if everything goes, the ultimate goal is not to reset providing the Demolition Team does their job. Safe Zones There is a plugin called SafeZone is basically is WorldGuard (Minecraft) for Unturned and we can define certain things. I've requested some features and this could be a solution where we can sell regions to players 10x10 or 20x20 for in-game Bits. If you don’t pay for a regioned area. The (“Demolition Team”) would have every right to destroy your base without refund. Don’t worry, we’ll have guidelines and a specific times for these to be taken care of! What about Safe Zones that have been paid for and unused? If this is the case, we’ll know the owner and see base it player activity. If a player is inactive and there is no AFK post on our forums. The (“Demolition Team”) would have permission to destroy your base without refund. How about selling some insurance? We could sell insurance, however this would be handled individually and on a case by case basis as we would need to keep some form of record. The best plan we would create an (“Insurance Form”) on the forums and if you’ve been Approved then you will take your Bits from in-game immediately. This is something we briefly talked about and still under consideration. Voting We have a plugin on all servers that will give you rewards if you vote for our servers. We have separated the vote system to it’s individual servers where you can vote on each one. This has been updated and you can find all the vote site links on our status page. http://justplayhere.com/status/ Player's Inventory I’ve mentioned previously on how about we’re not going to be resetting any player’s inventory during the map reset. However, we discussed this amongst the Senior Staff and there are PROs and CONs will trying to do something to help the server. For example, Make the Gillie Suite a rare item and not everyone ones like 10 pairs of it. The question is, Are we resetting player’s inventory? As of right now, It’s no. However, we have a month and things can change based on the poll results! Economy (Bits) I’ve mentioned previously on how about we’re not going to be resetting any player’s money (Bits) during the map reset. However, this has been long and discussed and we have reached a middle ground as I was looking at our money database and there is about 30,000 players with either a really low balance or doesn’t exceed about 5,000 Bits. The question is, Are we resetting player’s balance? The answer is yes! However, every will be getting a 5,000 Bits to start and if you’re a current player another 5,000 Bits for the Map Credit. Map Reset Credit My base cost more than 5,000 Bits and all that is down the drain because of the map reset! 5,000 Bits isn’t going to help at all! We have a solution for you. We have created a form that you can request for additional (“Map Reset Credit”). However, we have guidelines and if they’re not followed your request will be denied. You’re requesting additional Bits (“Credit”) due to the Map Reset. We have setup this form for you to apply for that credit. You can only submit one application to receive credit. In order, to receive credit please fill out all the details below and provide descriptions and reasoning for your credit. This can also include screenshot(s) and/or video(s). Failure to provide screenshots or videos will be an automatic denial. Failure to provide proof the base is yours will be an automatic denial. (Staff Sponsor Providing screenshot(s) and/or video(s) doesn’t guarantee you will receive the credit you’re requesting for. You can deny your request or lower your amount. http://justplayhere.com/mapcredit Washington Map Players have mentioned in the forums about wanting the Washington Map and as of right now, we currently don’t have the resources for it. However, we’re planning for this next month! More Power There are a few problems with Unturned such as it doesn’t have multi-core support and using the Unity feature doesn’t work and therefore places all servers essentially on one core, causing lag. This is out bottleneck as our servers currently have 64 GB of RAM and 1 Gbps Port and this is waste of resources as we’re hardly using this. We’re planning to migrate our servers to 32 GB of RAM and 1 Gbps Port. Unfortunately, we still have to use Windows as Unturned for Linux is crap. Nelson you should fix that! Wait isn’t that downgrading our servers? Technically, yes. However, we’re buying two of these servers. One is for PvE and the other is PvP. Each server can easily handle 12 to 14 servers without a problem. Migration Plan On Sunday, October 25, 2015 - We’ll be migrating the servers to their new home PvE and PvP will have there own separate dedicated to increase performance all around. At this time, We will also be resetting the maps on all servers. Since, we’re doing this we’re planning some changes for the rotation on our servers. PvE and PvP servers will now have the same amount of set servers to help with my OCD. PEI 4 Yukon 2 Washington 2 Connecting to our Servers We’re going to change the way you connect to our servers. Currently, you are connecting with ut.justplayhere.com and then the port of that server and this can be confusing. The New Way! Each server will be labeled with there name and the port is going be the default Unturned port 27015 for all servers. How so? We’re using dedicated IPs for all servers. In Unturned we can define an IP and Port in the setting and bind it. This will allow us to use the same port more than once on a different IP. This allows us to structure our hostnames in a different and easier way! We still keeping the ut.justplayhere.com part of the domain as it will define it as “Unturned”. You will be able to connect to our servers in this way. THESE WILL NOT BE ACTIVE UNTIL NEXT MONTH! THE RESET WILL HAPPEN ON 10/25/2015 CONNECT USING: http://justplayhere.com/status/ PvE pve1.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pve2.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pve3.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pve4.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pve5.ut.justplayhere.com (Yukon) pve6.ut.justplayhere.com (Yukon) pve7.ut.justplayhere.com (Washington) pve8.ut.justplayhere.com (Washington) PvP pvp1.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pvp2.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pvp3.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pvp4.ut.justplayhere.com (PEI) pvp5.ut.justplayhere.com (Yukon) pvp6.ut.justplayhere.com (Yukon) pvp7.ut.justplayhere.com (Washington) pvp8.ut.justplayhere.com (Washington) Kind Regards, Cory G.
