Recently I've decided I want to move forward with Devolved in a lot of ways. Thanks to you guys.
You guys have been donating a lot
recently - and now I can start experimenting with things that cost money to better the community.
You're only going to see Devolved get better from now on; and fast
. I plan on spending tons of time coding in the coming weeks.
TTT East Coast Server
We now have a US east coast VDS located in New York
. There are now two
Many communities already do this, so that people who only play low-ping servers can play just fine.
This is an experiment for now. Not 100% sure if we will be keeping it - but hopefully things go smooth as butter.The IP is "ttt2.devolved.us"Alternative: 220.127.116.11:27015General questions answered:Will my inventory, stats, rank, etc. be the same on this server?
Yes. Your donation rank/items will sync on every single Devolved server
. Your inventory, stats, etc will be cross-server with any TTT we host.
Same with the market.How do rare crate drops work?
Pretty much the same. They have a random time limit applied, and both servers read off the same time.
It'll be random which server drops the rare crate. Remember that you need 16 players for a rare crate to even drop though.
An update will be applied to both servers that syncs information from the database before doing things.I'm banned on TTT. Am I banned here?
Yes, our bans system is server-wide.I'm TTT admin or mod. Am I admin or mod here?
Yes, when applying for TTT admin it applies to all of our TTT servers.
So does manager.What if it's Saturday in east coast but not west, will we have double XP?
No. The time on this server works off pacific time as well.Can we have an EU server? A central server?
If this works out, then yes.
I've switched our domain registrar and have purchased an SSL certificate. It's not applied yet, but it will be soon.
What does this mean? Well, basically when you visit a website like https://google.com/
it makes the connection secure and encrypts any information (the https at the beginning)
This makes donating, logging in through Steam's website, and a load of other things a ton more secure. You can read more here.
Next, I've been evolving the website in many ways. Most user links now direct to their player pages, which show various information about players.
The player pages are going to change a ton
over time - the next two features will be custom urls and hiding your inventory.I've completely recoded the item stats and added a crate drop stats tab.
The shoutbox is being recoded
, there are now various website API's
, the market system was added, etc.
The Roleplay has started development. I have so many plans for this gamemode it will blow your mind.
Expect Roleplay Dev Blogs relatively soon, and maybe even a beta server sooner than you think :)
This is a complete recode from the old "DevolvedRP" - and it's going to be a new generation in roleplay servers.
