  2. PostNukeRP: Inventory Update Part 1 and Server Move


    Server Move:

    The server has been moved from the old host (Fragnet) to our current host that runs our VPS (NFOServers). We have already moved our Build Server there and it seems to be much more stable.

    New Address:

    If any of you connected using the domain before, you it will automatically redirect you to the new server.

    What Happened to the old server?

    The host of our old server had a 100% data loss on the entire node and does not do proper backups. Raid is not a backup by the way.

    Once this happened I tested out NFO’s GMod servers and they seem to be more powerful, and cheaper. So we moved.

    What happened to the old data?

    Thankfully I had a backup from May 18, so its not a total loss. I have had to go in and rework many of the config settings, so there may be some tweeking left to do. I have also created a new Workshop Collection.

    Workshop Collection: PostNukeRP Server

    It should have all the addons needed for the server, not counting wire (You will need to get wire). I have also added the HL2 Cars addon since we will be opening up vehicles soon. Will get more into that later.

    PostNukeRP: Inventory Update Part 1

    This is the first and probably the largest part to the new Persistent Item System, and I just realized the acronym as I typed this.

    This means some items such as miners and power generators have a persistent state in inventory. When you pick up a damaged persistent item, it will stay damaged. Fuel in generators is not persistent as well, so you no longer have to worry about loosing fuel.

    I have also included several bug fixes as well.

    Report Bugs at Dev Forum or PostNukeRP Steam Group

    There will be bugs, there are probably new ones with all the updates done to the code. Please report any bugs you find. At this point I don’t really care how you get the bug report to me, just need them. The PostNukeRP Steam Group is another good place to report bugs, its free to join on Steam, and there is a bug report section.

    Patch Notes:
    1. New Persistent Inventory system added
    2. Fixed duplication of itembase table
    3. Moved more itembase functions to shared
    4. Fixed Community Lockers ownership issues
    5. Fixed Car weight with vendors
    6. Vehicle capacity added to item base files
    7. Vehicles now have inventory weight in containers
    8. Inventory/Shop now shows Capacity on items with a Capacity setting
    9. Added Fists as default weapons
    10. Removed Knife as default weapon
    11. Added skill Strength (Affects Melee weapons)
    12. Added Knife as craft-able from workbench
    13. Knife now affected by Strength Skill
    14. Lowered overall knife damage
    15. Merged Keys and Hands into one “weapon”
    16. Fixed display item deleting if item was not sold
    17. Changed color scheme of inventory windows
    18. Added new texture to side menu
    19. Added side menu to profile window
    20. Cleaned up commented out code
    21. Removed F2 Block from damaged items that are now persistent
    22. Both miners and all three power generators added to persistent item system
    23. Gas, nuke, and fusion power supplies now save their fuel when stored
    24. Storage locations now show the items HP and Fuel
    25. Solar Panels now affected by rad storms
    26. Fixed bug with player inventory not showing the correct max carry weight
    27. Fixed bug with shotgun reloading (Animation still buggy)
    28. Fixed Wasteland Radar
    29. Radar now has to be able to see the skybox to work
    30. Solar Panel now has to see the skybox to work

    May have been a few things I have mist in the list, but thats pretty much it.

    ADHD Version: Eldar Moved the server and added some inventory goodies.

  3. Garry’s Mod Servers Down: PostNukeRP and Build


    business-cat-meme-generator-server-crash-you-ve-gotta-be-kitten-me-06517cToday both the TBU Build and PostNukeRP servers went down. After contacting Fragnet I got this response.

    We are deeply sorry to inform you that during today’s server maintenance a raid array issue occurred.
    This resulted in full data-loss on this node, we have actively been working on data restoration been unable to retrieve anyting from the drive so far.
    Currently we are close to having the machine alongside the IPs back online, however with a fresh raid array installed.
    Your service will be re-created but unfortunately be a fresh install as the local backups were lost as well.
    Due to this major impact of this issue we have added 7 days of additional service time to your service.

    We are sincerely sorry about this inconvenience and are trying have done our utmost to retrieve any possible fails, unfortunately to no avail.
    We do hope that you haven’t lost trust in us and we will of course assist you with setting up your server where possible.

    So basically all the data on both servers is gone. Several years worth of files and such. The only up side is that I do have a database backup of the PostNukeRP server from 5/18/2015 so not all the player data from it is lost.

    What does this mean?

    It means the servers will be down for a few days as I try and reconfigure everything. I will have to upload all the extra content back to the server, and will have to get PNRP development version to a stable state to uplaod.

    The build server will probably be back up first however.

    I may also look at changing hosts, I am not sure yet. It is rather disappointing that they do not have any backups of their servers.

    So until further notice, both servers will be down.

  4. Garrys Mod Virus


    As most people allready know there is a virus that is spreading accross the GMod world. It travels from person to person via the server.

    I have tried protecting the servers as best I can using the methods posted on Facepunch so the TBU servers should be safe. I will be checking the servers alot over the next few days to make sure they stay clean.

    If you have become infected use this file, it is a batch file that will delete the files that the virus uses.

    For more info on this issue:

  5. Server down due to update issue


    As many of you know, Valve has changed over to the SteamPipe system for their games. This has caused some headaches in the moding world, and now the hosting world as well.

    With this change over Valve has moved away from the HLDSUpdateTool to the new SteamCMD tool. As of now the HLDS tool will no longer update the server to the current version of GMod.

    I am now working with our hoster to get the new tool configured correctly. This should not take that long, so the servers should be back up soon.

    The Dev server will be back up either tonight or sometime this weekend since its not a high priority at the moment.


    Update: 6/7/2013 9:50AM

    Progress, but slow. The server will start up now and the database has been moved to the new folder. The reason for the delay is that with SteamPipe, everything is now placed in different folders. I am currently working with the hoster to get the game content uploaded and everything in its correct place.
