Go To Sleep UCGO

So I came by today and noticed some time during the night the server had gone down. Probably due to a power failure or something, doesn’t really matter why.

Normally I would have restarted the server. But since the server was only paid for until May 16th and I didn’t plan on renewing the subscription I figured why bother.

Instead I had the server subscription cancelled and that’s it. No more UCGO Llama drama.

 

 

Reset is NOT happening

The UCGO reset will not happen.

Looking at the comments I’ve received since I first announced the reset and all the moronic comments I’ve deleted. It is very clear it will only be a repeat of what happened before with drama and arguing all over the place and players complaining about every little thing.

I just don’t care to sit through another period of UCGO drama.

Also any attempt to make UCGO active again would probably be futile as why would any new players want to join UCGO when it’s just drama all over the place.

 

UCGO Reset News + more

First of all, this Sunday April 3rd at 1AM GMT time, the server will be down due to maintenance at the hosting provider.

And UCGO reset is still happening in case anyone was wondering. I expect the “new” server to be released sometime in May.

 

UCGO RESET – Is Happening

OK so it has been decided. UCGO will be reset back to official server state, it might work out.

It will take some time to get this done, expect it to be ready some time in April or May.

 

Some info on the “new” server: (I’m open for suggestions)

—–

– MS will still be faction locked.

– Skills will work the same way they currently do i.e merging ground and space engagement and the new near/far engagement skills.

– 900 skill points instead of 800.

– Engines will work the same they currently do. No slow L1/L2 engines.

– Instead of having TJ/HJ/TR/HB engines there will only be one MS/MA engine type. That way you won’t need one MS with TJ engine for ground and another with TR for space use.

– Some MS and weapons will still be free in the shop.

– Weekly salary. That way players who don’t have time to craft or hunt NPCs will still have at least some money available.

– GQ uniforms will give a larger skill boost. That way rank will have some use.

– There will be no MS/weapon stats posted on the website. I will only post a list of available MS/weapons and which materials are needed for crafting them. Hopefully this results in less arguing and fighting over which side has the best MS and balance issues.

– If you want to craft you will need to mine materials, or get materials by killing NPCs.

– Crafting skills increase much faster than before, no need for using a macro. Instead time will be spent on gathering the materials needed for crafting.

Doing this takes a considerable amount of time. So I hope at least some of the players who want this to happen will donate by Paypal.

 

? ? ? ? UCGO RESET ? ? ? ?

Just looking for some feedback.

Want to see how much demand/interest there is for doing this.

Who wants to reset UCGO back to official server state? Post a comment here if you care.

A reset will involve deleting all accounts and going back to using official server MS only, and no battleships.

This does not actually mean UCGO will be reset. I only want to see how much demand there is.

Maybe a restart could bring UCGO back to life.

Maintenance over – Server online again

As it says, server is online.

 

Maintenance

The server is down due to the hosting company performing some maintenance work.

I will bring the server back online again sometime tomorrow.

UCGO is back

The server is now online again.

 

All hail king Kai-sin…

…for he has made a donation to pay for the server.

So a player, Kai-sin, has donated to pay for server hosting. I will get the server setup within one or two days.

 

 

……….

A few players, two of them, asked me to try donations to keep this server running. I don’t expect it to work out but I’ll give it a try.

– In the top menu there’s a DONATE link.

– Required donation for a full year of server hosting is $1000.

If I get the $1000 I will pay for 12 months of server hosting and you guys can keep playing UCGO. There will be no updates.

I’ll wait until Friday next week, July 3rd. If I haven’t received donations by then I’ll delete all the user accounts and it’s over.
