Server Announcments / Re: Server maintenance
« Last post by Sandman[SA] on Yesterday at 01:11:21 am »
I must say, I'm actually impressed with how much better that new cpu cooler is working.  Even under moderate load, it's keeping that processor at a comfortable 34C.  The stock cooler would be 20C higher with the same load.  The odd part of the story is, the gpu is running at the same temp as the cpu is now.  Both hover around 32C to 34C.  I've never seen that happen before with air coolers.  Usually, one device runs hotter than the other.

A fresh map has been started and the mod pack has some updates.  Some plugins have reworks.  And a couple of new QoL mods added.  Namely a lock pick mod and a couple of new foods.  Also, 2 new big POI's. A moat style welcome center with 5 traders inside (NOT PROTECTED) and No Hope Mall makes a return.  Not to be confused with the dod mall.  Other POI's had some noticeable changes.  Mostly growing gardens, lighting changes and general repairs.  The biggest of the POI changes are the traders.  All 6 of them.  Including The Mechanic.  They all got (let's just say) a major overhaul.  The Mechanic now has a large powered garage door.  You just need batteries and a wiring tool to get it working.  Other things like every trader now has fully functional work stations.  All new lighting.  All new shelving and counters, and they are all lootable.  And some other noticeable changes around their bases.

Edit:  Sorry about the confusion.  I thought I had uploaded the final reworks of all the traders to the server, but I missed 1.  Trader Rekt only has the work in progress version.  Maybe I will reset the world again if no one joins by tomorrow so it has the final version.  We will see.

Let us see what happens.  If it does come out though, I may just give it a little time to work out the bugs and catch a few game reviews before I think about getting it.

 April 21st is supposed to be the release date. I hope they are not going the Metro Exodus route and dealing with some gaming platform other than Steam. No steam page currently.

Today there was a couple of down time issues.  First, Comcast upgrading the service lines in my neighborhood.  Higher bandwidth options will be available here soon.   :tup:  Second was a rolling power blackout.  So, during the blackout, I did some much needed repairs on the server PC.  The GPU had one fan that was dying.  I replaced the fan, cleaned out the cooler and repasted it.  Other was the stock CPU cooler got upgraded.  I managed to pickup a Deep Cool Gammaxx 400 V2 in blue.  It was only $22 from Microcenter.  It was the only modern single tower style cooler with a 120mm fan that I could find that's compatible with socket AM3+.  The system is running nice and cool now.

I honestly thought that this game got canceled and swept under the rug?  I might give it a go if it ever comes out.

I've been working feverishly on what I have in store for the next 7d2d server reset.  I've got a couple more custom POIs.  Including a fairly large welcome center that houses 5 traders inside of a moat style base.  It's unprotected so you can do what you please there.  Also, no hope mall is back and better than ever!  Many previous custom POIs have some small reworks like growing gardens and working (not broken) workstations and lights are turned on.  Only a bit on the dim side so it's not blinding during the day.  I'm not sure if this is going to work as planned, but all traders should be getting a similar treatment.  Minus the growing gardens.  Those places are protected and you wouldn't be able to harvest them without a modded lawn tractor.

I thought this might be useful information.  Especially KT might find interesting.

 Sounds like a company actually finished a game before releasing it instead of shipping it out broken from the start. Sad that that is a rarity instead of the norm these days.
