Contributing to a new sever

Post by southead » 06 Apr 2016, 23:14

Is it possible that we can contribute to renting a server? Surely a 32bit app wouldn"t require a massively expensive server.

I'd gladly contribute $10-20 a month to rent a server...

Was thinking about this yesterday.

I'd donate towards it also. :)

Good news and bad news! I'm assuming the hold up is with GoN?

What about our characters? I wouldn't mind if I lost levels or started again because I love playing Sigmar so much but I'm sure others would not be happy at all if they lost their progress.

You can save your characters into your local vault, then all you would need to do is give the file to a DM... I think...

A lot of the stuff would be saved server side, wouldn't it? Warspawn Points, Crafting levels, Quests etc

It would take a DM a long time to manually grant all that stuff for each player.

We are still attempting to retrieve the files and module from iinet/TPG.

There are lengthly discussions going on behind the scenes on this topic and once we know with 100% accuracy the direction we need to take in regards to the server we will let everyone know.

However for safeties sake I suggest all players back up all characters asap. This is not meant to be taken as a negative but purely as a precaution.

Punkley has offered us a server and the DM's and Admin are gratefull for this. It would make no sense to look at going down a path of another server from the one Punkley has offered as we would still be in the same boat.

Also we able to have direct contact with a Player Attack Admin in case of updates or issues.

Hope that clears up the server issue somewhat.

No worries Gotrek. In that case I'll just give player attack money.

Oops I'd forgot about this. There's an evil witch who keeps spending all my money. I should do what I say I'm going to do and fix that up later. :oops:
