Re: Gate & Wormhole System

I don't know. Nobody was terribly enthusiastic about it last time it was proposed, and there are some very real issues with incentive if server owners don't actually own the servers they are donating. But from a technical standpoint, it would be a much better arrangement.

The gist of how it would work is a central controler would assign different servers to different planets and star systems, depending on the amount of traffic and locality. If one goes down, another server is ready to take its place with limited service interruption. It's kind of complicated but entirely doable.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

Most minecraft servers reside on VPS's, so...

I mean, if you're doing something similar to that Bungee system on the minez/lms/otherstufficantremember server, that'd mean one shoddy host could slow down the entire futurecraft galaxy.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

At worst you would have one planet or star system with crappy performance. Which you would anyway with dedicated planet servers, only this way you have to option of relegating the bad server to somewhere with less traffic.

I have no idea how this will all work with vps. Everybody is going to want money if they are themselves renting space.

I say we ask Bill Gates for charity to rent an entire datacenter for the next 30 years.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

Alright, on the subject of gates and stuff, have two steps. The Warpgate and the Fleetgate. The Warpgate can take players with empty inventory to another server with a Warpgate. It could be used by peaceful factions. After all, if a guy with nothing but his clothes on warps into a place with the tech to build a Warpgate, they can't really revolt. The Warpgate is built on the ground and would be around 5 m radius with swirly things inside. The Fleetgate is the huge thing that would be carried into space by a giant spacecraft. This is how you open your world to the Galaxy. You can jump ships in, they can jump ships in. To close it, you would need to wait 24 hours.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

Yes to warp-gates. The larger ones are called jump-gates (no discussion about this), and would require a large amount of power to turn on, but use little while on and can be turned off instantly. You would stop an enemy from coming in my placing a force-field in-front of the gate. This would destroy enemy ships instantly, but the enemy ships would get fair warning before going through.
This is a signature.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

There's a punishment for necroposting written in the rules. As a moderator, your job is to look these things up and act on them. ;) If there are necroposters around, do something about it. That's what you're for.

Re: Gate & Wormhole System

I understand that. On the one hand this thread is actually sticky and I don't think the bump was made on purpose, on the other hand I cannot let people Necro either. For now just an unofficial warning - please see the dates of the last post before posting in a thread. The next necro will receive the reserved points for necro .
