Both Servers are back online

-----------

Hello everyone,

Tomorrow (4th of January) between 10 am and 12 am CET (https://www.timeanddate.com/countdown/generic?iso=20180104T100000&p0=83) our Servers Delta and Epsilon will be taken down for extended maintenance;

Downtime of Delta is currently scheduled from 10 am to 11 am
Downtime of Epsilon is currently scheduled from 11 am to 12 am

Any important status-update if problems are found will be written to the Server's respective Channel on Discord

Cheers,
Namikon

Good day everyone,

in the past 2 Months we haven't reached our donation-goal #2, and this month it also seems that we will not hit the sweet spot.
We're not doing this for profit, which means that we have to pay the remaining amount to keep our Servers online.

The Server(s) for GTNH where paid by our Staff for almost 2 years before we had to consider donations, and we cannot rely on this again.

As a result, we will monitor the donations until 01.01.2018 (That's about 1,5 donation-cycles), and if we don't reach our goals, we'll consider taking one Server offline.
Unfortunately, since Delta and Epsilon are not compatible, the progress of all players on the Server that is removed will be lost.

We can't promise Character-Transfers, as this is a manual process, each file has to be edited by hand.

We hope you'll understand why we have to do this.

To be more specific about Hardware cost, here is a Detailed Summary of what we use and what we pay:

Delta (XenServer VM)

Processor Intel I7-3770k
Memory 16 GB DDR3 (Dedicated for this VM)
HDD 2x 3TB; Hardware-Raid 1
------- ---------
Cost 51,99 Euro / Month

Epsilon

Processor Intel Xeon E3-1270V3
Memory 32 GB DDR3
HDD 2x 2TB; Hardware-Raid 1
------ ---------
Cost 40 Euro / Month

Various required things (Price per Month)

100GB Remote Backup-Location for Player-Profiles/SQL Dumps 3,45 EUR
Enjin-Page 7,99 EUR

This results in a total monthly price of: 103,43 Euro

One generous Staff-Member keeps donating 20 Euro each Month, resulting in an open bill of 83,43 Euro.

A lot of time has passed since the last big update to 1.4.1.1.
Weeks, almost months, have been spent in programming mods, writing/changing recipes, creating quests, while at the same time trying to keep the progression system that we build from scratch, across every single of our 200+ mods.

Recent new additions to our central mod "GregTech" had a tremendous impact on almost the entire progression system, as it fundamentally changes a few things that were considered to be the "roots" of GT:NewHorizons. And we all know, cutting a tree can be difficult if the tree is large enough; but replanting it because you need to change its roots is almost impossible.

As a result of these huge changes, we decided to make a "major" Version jump this time; "GT:NH 1.5" will be renamed to "GT:NH 2.0" once it's ready to be released.

Meanwhile, please join us on our new Server "Zeta" once it's available and help us find bugs.
The Server is currently being prepared, and will, hopefully, be ready for action starting 14/15th of July '17.

Another announcement will be made once the Server has been made public.

- GTNH Staff

WarlordWossman I am glad we made it so far and wanted to thank everyone who helped making this pack so great. Hyped to see what the fut...
MaitreCarl wow cool : )

Cheers,

we are currently preparing the launch of our 3rd Server; "Zeta", which will act as a Test-Server for the next big Update of our pack. Everyone currently Whitelisted will, of course, have access to it, such as everyone else who is going to be Whitelisted after the launch.

The reason for this decision is simple: The amount of changes in the next Update and their complexity are just way too much to test and review by our small staff team, and the few people who are willing to play the pack in SP.

We need more than just a small test of individual machines; Basically, the whole progression system needs to be reviewed.

Zeta will have a different config setting, depending on whatever we need to test or verify; But be sure that there will be no need to grind your way up to a certain tech level.

The Donation Goals have been updated to cover the cost for this new Server, but without altering the requirement for the most-wanted perks. Starting today, there is no more limit on Donations; But every single Euro donated will go into the savings to pay for Zeta. The more donations we get, the longer we're able to run it!

And last but not least:
Another official Statement regarding the next update itself will be released soon, so stay tuned!
