Cheers,

we just launched our "Grave Self Sevice" Information Portal. Find out where exactly your grave is, if it's spawned or if you need to contact Staff, and check for how long it will be there before it's deleted.
You can find the Pages here:

Self-Service Portal Delta

Self-Service Portal Epsilon

In order to lookup your graves, you have to login on the Server you want to check, and type in
 ⁄gravehelp request.
You will then receive your unique Code. Notice: This still considered Beta, please report all problems with this on the well-known Github page, or contact Namikon on Discord directly. Thank you!

Cheers,

as a result of updating Delta to a new Server, we could get rid of the old and "expensive" contract we had.
Long story short: The old price for both Servers was about 95 EUR each month; The new price is 87,25 EUR.

Doesn't sound that much huh? But keep in mind we now have a lot more performance on Delta, and in addition to that, we set up a 3rd location for Backups. So now even if the worst case scenario happens and one of our Servers dies a horrible death (Mainboard, both hard drives at the same time, you name it) we still will be able to restore a backup that is 1 to 12 Hours old, within a reasonable time.

And all that for about ~7 Euro less than what we paid before.
Don't know about you, but I call that a good deal!

Delta == Epsilon

[Admin] Namikon a posted May 21, 18

The move of Delta has been completed. Delta is now equal to Epsilon; Same CPU, the same amount of Memory, 100% dedicated for GT:NH, and even a few bucks cheaper than before! (We'll update the Donation goal in the next couple of days)

You should be able to login as usual, without the need to change any address at all.
In case you can't join, make sure your client points to delta.gtnewhorizons.com

Hello everyone,

a quick status update; We're currently getting the "new Delta" ready for action.
Due to family activities (And as such the absence of both Admins) next Saturday and Sunday, we're scheduling the migration of Delta for Monday, the 21st of May.

As a result, Delta will be unavailable for about 3-4 hours on this day.

And as a sort of "FAQ":

  • No Dimension will be reset or wiped
  • No progress will be lost
  • You do not have to prepare your base for anything

More detailed information will follow as we progress through the Server Setup.

[18.05.2018] UPDATE:
Server is ready for action. Backup System is still pending, but we'll get that covered soon.
Estimated downtime: 

21.05.2018 11:00 CEST till 15:00 CEST

[21.05.2018] Update:

Update delayed; New estimated downtime:

21.05.2018 15:00 CEST till 19:00 CEST

Cheers,

it's a well-known fact that our Server Delta suffers from Low TPS most of the time. We've been discussing this a lot, how we could improve performance with the Hardware we have right now; Always having a focus on Server-Cost. Things like Mob-Spawn limiting, custom Mods, and Plugins to limit TileEntity Ticks, limits to the Range a Mob can "see" players, and a lot more.

Bad news is, nothing really helped; The Server we have available is just not powerful enough, and as such, it averages around 15 TPS with just 4-6 Players online; Where Epsilon is able to keep up the same performance with 15 Players. (This is based on logged Data for the past 24 hours)

The Donations have been going really great the past months, and we have quite some savings; Basically, we could run almost 2 Months without any donation by now. There was a community vote a while ago, and the result of this was to accumulate the savings, and we are doing so.

We did some research on how to improve performance with updating the Hardware. The results are ... not as good as we hoped they would be; At least not if we don't want to spend more money for it.

There is an option available which would, in theory (Entirely based on CPU Benchmarks), boost Delta that much, so it would even surpass Epsilon, for about 60% increased cost for the Server. 

The calculations are:
Epsilon has a Score of 2229 points (Xeon 1270v3) and Delta has 2069 points (I7 3770). The option that is available for a reasonable price has a score of 2623 (i7 8700) (Source CPU Scores)

That seems to be a big improvement.
So one option we have would be to Setup one of those 8700 machines, move Delta there and let it run for a month, to see how it performs.
If it's not worth the extra money, we can always go back to a cheaper machine. Keep in mind that we will have to raise the monthly donation goal by about 25 euro if the performance is really that great and we decide to stick with it.

The second option would be to skip the 8700 Setup and directly get another one of those "Epsilon" machines, which would improve TPS comparable to the Level of Epsilon, and possibly even save a few bucks (And as such, lowering the Donation goal)

So please leave your comments below on what you think about this.
