Worldserver Promotions
Apr 26, 2015 - 2:40 PM - by Akkadius
It makes me happy being involved in such a strong community where people are able to relive the passion we all share, express their boundless creativity and learn beyond what you would think is possible.

I don't have one ounce of regret spending the ridiculous time I have contributing to this community. Don't forget the many other developers who also have put tremendous work into this project.

The amount of activity this time of year is typically low, but even considering we have more people involved in the community than ever.

Today I've made quite a few server bumps.

General unofficial criteria for preferred status is to have:
  • 30+ Players
  • Good standing in community
  • High uptime
  • Been established for many months with stable and respected ownership

Servers moved to preferred:
  • Imperium
  • Kimura
  • Blood of Turmoil
  • Vegarlson Asylum
  • Leetsauce Productions
  • Chronicles of Norrath

There are a few servers that failed to register their world servers and were not promoted.

Be proud to run a server that has a following, it is no easy task. However, the rewards can be many if you can stand the hard challenges you face without becoming burned and jaded from the lack of appreciation of players which encompasses all kinds of different scenarios. I've pretty much seen them all. It takes a special person to run a server. Players make sure you extend your appreciation when you can.

Make sure that with this server status, that you run your server with integrity. Our community is heavily based on it.

I would have easily bumped Eriviyn to preferred, but Drakiyth has stepped out to take care of life for a while. Respect to his work and dedication.

Server Names:
  • Make sure you remove special characters like '!!!!!' or 'zzzz' garbage that moves your server to the top of the white list. This is not acceptable on the preferred bracket. If you fail to update your server within the next few days I will bring you back down to white.

If there is any question to any of these bumps, feel free to respond to this thread or PM.

Forum Changes and Worldserver Management
Apr 20, 2015 - 11:29 AM - by Akkadius
Forum Changes
  • Code blocks are now 60 lines long if they reach that by default
  • Code block width has been adjusted to 70% of the parent element width
  • New users will now have "Default Thread Subscription Mode" set to "Instant E-Mail notifications"
  • To enable this yourself, you can do so here: http://www.eqemulator.org/forums/pro...do=editoptions
World Server Registration & Management
  • Cranked out World Server account management last weekend that has been long awaited by many (Located on the left Site Navigation under the account system)
  • All of your existing World Server accounts that were tied to your forum account will show up here
  • You can have up to 4 World Server accounts private or public
New World Registrations
  • What you put in the world registration needs to line up with your eqemu_config.xml information in the block. When your server connects to the EQEmu loginserver, it will authenticate itself with this information
World Server Descriptions
  • These can use HTML, I have Javascript tags being stripped. If you post inappropriate content expect to be banned. The same goes for inappropriate server names and use. If anyone finds there is childish server registrations being made, report them to me directly.
Preferred Server Status
  • If you want to be eligible for Preferred Server status, make sure you have your world server registered by the end of this week. I will be going through and promoting/demoting by the end of this week

Just an FYI, this is on its way here soon. I will update when it is so that folks can manage their own world servers once again.

Thanks,

Updating and Maintainability
Mar 12, 2015 - 12:39 PM - by Akkadius
I need to make some overdue news posts on our community and the amazing work our guys are doing behind the scenes all the time, but I wanted to get this information out there because it is no good if people aren't aware of these things being available.

To some of you it has been obvious the attempts to improve an area that has been much needed in improvement, and that is the installing, deployment and maintaining of a server.

For some of us, we can set up a server from scratch in as little as 15 minutes. For some of us it would take a week after frustrating battles and slamming your face into desk.

Akka's Repack
For most new people, the repack has made EQEmu server immediately available and this puts the power of creativity, simplicity, ease and enjoyment into the hands of anyone who wishes to re-experience or express themselves using this great game as their medium.

EQEmu Update Script (Linux and Windows)
Originally, this script was made to keep databases up to date with changes, which it has done so almost flawlessly with some bumps here and there, like any software you overcome bugs and challenges. Now, it has grown into a more complete utility script that you can use to keep server assets up to date with ease.

Right now it supports the following options you see in the image below. With the ability to 'Officially' download the latest V2 Map files which have not been easily available anywhere until now.

It also supports updating LUA Modules/Perl Plugins/PEQ Quests and it does so intelligently, as in, if you have changes between your local file and the updated copy, it will display those changes and ask you if you want to actually update that file before doing so. This makes the process far less blind. And, if you wanted to install all of these things from scratch, it will also pull everything down flawlessly.

Future Additions
What my plans are for adding onto this script:
  • Windows server setup from scratch
  • Windows Loginserver Setup (Local)
  • PEQ Database Auto Import (With prompts to set database name)
  • Windows latest server binary stable download
  • Any other useful utilities that come by over time

Currently this script updates itself when new server binaries are ran, however if you want to update it manually yourself until you update it, here is the current version: https://raw.githubusercontent.com/EQ...qemu_update.pl

So while this is more of a FYI, feel free to post any new thoughts, appreciation or ideas. Thanks, Akka

Changes to Bag Save Procedures
Mar 03, 2015 - 7:20 PM - by Uleat
A recent fix to the inventory system necessitated an enforcement of bag size restrictions during the save process.

Any players using an 'interface' to exploit inaccessible bag slots will need to remove items they want to keep from these
locations immediately upon logging in.

Upon logging out or zoning, any items in locations not considered as 'valid' will be lost forever.


Sorry for the inconvenience!
