PN_WastedWaters_Beta_2
Eldar Storm | March 14th, 2012

At long last, Beta 2 of Wasted Waters is out. It has allready been uploaded to the live server and is ready for use.
The main point of this version is to test the lag fixes that have been done to the map.
The lighting on the map has been updated. I know there are a few issues on this map and they will be fixed on beta 3.

Some known issues:
Big shadows in the hanger
Various Soundscape issues
Weather cariable will probably be adjusted more later on.

Second Life and Renters
Eldar Storm | March 9th, 2012

So ya, just putting this out here in case anyone who visits the site plays Seconed Life and needs to rent a plot of land.

Current rates for example 2048mSq – 562 prims – $13.83 per month
Full sim, not a homestead
Lease Discount of 10% for 6+ months rental.
Water Level = 20M RATING: Moderate Resizable to fit your needs.
*PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED – YOU HAVE FULL CONTROL!*

Any rate, here is the Covenant

Welcome to Alanna. Please read this carefully as we attempt to create a fun experience for all.

Owned and operated by Radjin Properties. Alanna is a full region. Its zoning is residential/Commercial.. Below is a copy of the land rental agreement each and every tenet has agreed to. We ask that all visitors to this land also follow the same agreement as set forth below.

Any harassment of any other person is not allowed and will likely result in a ban from all Radjin Properties.

If you have any questions, please contact Radjin Jimador or Alanna Jun

*** All prices are Fixed by the $USD. L$ will vary with the Exchange rate as found in the LindeX Exchange, Last closing price. ======================================  LAND RENTAL AGREEMENT

Thank you for looking into renting our property.

For detailed land information please get about land by clicking on the parcel information at the top of your Second Life window.

Water Level = 20M      RATING:  Moderate       Resizable to fit your needs.

*** Land Requirements ***

1. *PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP IS NOT REQUIRED – YOU HAVE FULL CONTROL!*

Your Plot is deeded to a group of your choice.  This affords you all the options you would have as if you owned the land yourself – music/video streaming, ban lists, list in find, etc.  Officers of your group will have full access to all the features and permissions, allowing you to control who has that access via group (officer) membership.

2. ZONING RULES:

A. Commercial – Clubs, Malls, other Shopping centers, Casinos etc. Signs and flashing lights on the side away from any residential property. If you building is large and sits              close to the residence lot behind it then please place some trees or other acceptable means of minimizing its impact.          a. Intimate areas, adult art work or other adult material must not be visible from the public areas.          b. Intimate conversations from private rooms must not be heard from non adult areas, other commercial or residential areas.        Residential – Personal housing only. No stores or shopping centers, casinos or clubs. A personal dance floor for personal entertaining is fine. No signs or flashing lights used to advertise. Christmas and other holiday decorations are acceptable as long as you keep the affects in sim operation to minimum. Intimate conversations must not be heard from another lot.

3. LAND EDIT – Enabled & fully terraformable. No land editing that pulls up or drags down land in the neighboring plot – No ‘land walls’. (Water level may fluctuate but we hope to keep it at 20 meters. You are aware that any basements you create will likely be below that water line.)

4. BUILDING HEIGHT – No limit. No ‘Floating buildings’ below 650M. No rotating signs or particles to the exterior (except in creating natural effects, such as waterfalls).

5. SECURITY SCRIPTS/AUTOMATED DEVICES – The operational range should not exceed your property boundaries. At no time should any automated device or announcements interact or be heard beyond your property. No general bans that create a fence that blocks movement through the sim. Individual blocking/banning is of course allowed.

6. SHOOTING – Shooting is not allowed on any parcel without prior agreement with Radjin Properties. Doing so will likely get you banned from your own land.

7. LAG POLICY – There is no strict lag policy.  Residents are expected to exercise common sense and an unselfish attitude in avoiding the degradation of simulator performance.  Avoid as many active scripts as possible e.g. listening scripts such as show/hide pose balls – many have the option to be operated by touch instead.  Should Sim performance drop (FPS <40) as a result of user content, the biggest contributors to lag will be asked to make changes.  Help your fellow residents by ensuring it doesn’t reach this stage.

8. RENTAL RATES – Paid in L$ or Pay Pal (+3% fee) on a minimum of a monthly bases.

We attempt to give out land in 512 increments (e.g. 512, 1024, 1536, 2048, etc), however it is not always possible due to land configuration or space availability. We do       require that you take a parcel that does not leave unusable land around you.

Receive a 10% discount on your rent.

A.    Rent the land and prepay for 6 months or more.      B.    Rent monthly until you reach 6 months.

Rent is due on the first of each month, and is delinquent in 10 days. You are subject to eviction and your property cleared at any time after that.

9. REFUNDS – Will not be given for less than 30 days from notice date, or for any person or group who property has been closed due to breach of this contract.

10. SUBLETTING – Is allowed if the current agreement is given and understood by the sub-tenant. The parcel tenet is responsible for all actions of any person he/she allows on their land. The sim owner takes no responsibility for any arrangements between the parcel tenant and the sub-tenant, or the contents of the sub-tenants space.

11. ADULT CONTENT – The new Land Ratings System and ID verification system SL has in place requires that adult content be kept away from minors. It is my intention to rate the island as Moderate to allow the maxim number of occupants. However this requires that all adult content be kept out of sight of the open land and the casual visitor. Please monitor your property carefully.

12. LAND RATINGS – Each parcel tenant is responsible for the proper marking of his/her land as moderate or PG. The SIM owner takes no responsibility for parcel owner’s  incorrect marking of their land beyond notifying them once it is brought to his attention. Continued miss-marking of a parcel is grounds for rent termination.

13. REFERRAL PROGRAM – Stay free on your rented land. Refer someone and get 10% of their first months payment in the form of a time extension.

*** IMPORTANT – PLEASE READ *** I know this is a recap of what you have read…

– The tenant may terminate the agreement at any time.  A refund will not be given for any partial months     used.

–  Failure to make payment will result in the tenancy being terminated and the parcel’s objects being         returned.

– To ensure a comfortable living environment in SL, I reserve the right to terminate the tenancy of any           tenant deemed to be ‘griefing’ another tenant whilst in an island rental sim.  This holds for the main           account of the tenant, an alt, or friends.  These incidents will be dealt with on a case by case basis.A         refund for the outstanding period of the tenancy may or may not be given. I also reserve the right to         NOT renew an agreement once it runs out.

–  I reserve the right to ban individuals from the estate.

–  The tenancy is intended as an ongoing permanent agreement for as long as the tenant wishes.  Under       the extremely unlikely event that the sim is to be sold, or SL ceases to exist, I will refund the full           amount left on your agreement to the day, regardless of where the tenant is in their rental period.

–  Your tenancy is not transferable to another person.

PLEASE NOTE:  WE WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY CONTENT LOSS THAT IS NOT A RESULT OF MY DIRECT ACTION.  ANY LOSS AS A DIRECT RESULT OF ACTIONS FROM FELLOW OFFICERS IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY.  ANY LOSS AS A RESULT OF SERVER/SOFTWARE FAULTS SHOULD BE TAKEN UP WITH LINDEN LAB.  I WILL ALSO NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR CONTENT LOSS RESULTING FROM THE RETURN OF OBJECTS DUE TO FAILURE TO PAY RENT.

BY BECOMING A TENANT, YOU ARE STATING THAT YOU HAVE READ, UNDERSTOOD, AND AGREE TO THE TERMS, CONDITIONS AND GUIDELINES IN THIS NOTECARD.

Owners:  Radjin Jimador                Alanna Jun

Just thought I would put this out here for anyone who is interested.

Update Progress and Player Data
Eldar Storm | February 27th, 2012

Good news and Bad news

Good news is, updates are going good on PNRP, we got alot done tonight. The HUD issues are fixed, Weapon Icons are fixed, Spawn Grid is now fixed. We had a glon issue with the Spawn Grid, so we made that system the first one to be moved to sqlLight.

Hud issue was with the font we were using, it seems to be bugged, so we are now using a new one. Weapon issue is a similar issue, but is now fixed.

Medium News: With moving the spawn grid to SQL, we will have to redo the spawn grids for the maps (not a big deal really)

Bad News: In light of the fact that there are currently 7780 files at about 2MB in the Player Save folder only (Thats not counting Inventory files), player data will be lost in this update.

I know that this will make a few mad, and it was not a light decision by me and Lost, but with that many files it will be near to impossible to import them into the new SQL system. As it is, that many player files is one of the reasons it lags so much when a player connects. Just creating a function to try and make a list of everyone who has joined crashes the server.

So, keep in mind, this is Beta. The new system on top of the new net code from Garry will make it run a whole lot faster.

And no, we will not be reimbursing player inventories when the server us updates, to do so on this scale is unreasonable and near to impossible, so please dont ask us to.

Update Progress and Twitter
Eldar Storm | January 22nd, 2012

Yes, I said twitter. Never really had a need to use it really, but now it seems I do. I apreciate all the PMs I get asking for updates, but I realized this was a better means of a more active update method. You can follow be at http://twitter.com/eldarstorm

As for updates, here it goes:

  • Datastream to Net code conversion – Done
  • Derma issues – Not so much. Its beeing a pain.
  • Other issues due to the new changes – Not as bad as I thouht. No idea at the moment TBH

Ok, the las bullet is true, I thought it was rather bad untill I setup a dedicated Dev server running beta, after that, alot of the issues went away. We did not really build PNRP to run off of singleplayer.

Megaupload gets hit by the Feds/Feds get his by Anonymous
Eldar Storm | January 19th, 2012

Kind of game news in a way, since some of the map makers in the PostNukeRP Community use this site to transfer map files.

Today Megaupload.com was taken down by the Justice Department. According to the site linked below, thay are suspected to be involved with “the Mega Conspiracy”

The indictment accuses the suspects of being members of “the Mega Conspiracy, a worldwide criminal organization whose members engaged in criminal copyright infringement and money laundering on a massive scale.”

In retaliation for this attack Anonymous brought down the sites for the Department of Justice, Universal Music Group, RIAA and Motion Picture Association of America.

More information here

Just thought I would post this out there for the few that do check the site.

Edit: More info about the indictment on Megaupload: Ars Technica

State of PostNukeRP
Eldar Storm | January 10th, 2012

Posting this since not everyone seems to check the forums for current updated info.

PostNukrRP is not dead. We have held off on new updates and fixes in light of the upcomming changes for Garrys Mod. For those who do not know, the next update will break alot of addons and gamemodes since it will affect the way it communicates.

I have managed to get a beta key, so I will be looking into it shortly. LostInTheWired still is unable to get online as of right now, but has been working on code in the mean time.

You can find alot of this info and activity on the forums.

 

UPDATE:

Tested PNRP with the new Garrys Mod Beta. It is confermed, the update will break PostNukrRP, but its what we expected. The errors that I got during the test are the errors that I expected. Soon we will start the process of converting PNRP from datastreams to the new netcode. It is my hopes that we will be able to have the Patch live when the new version of Garrys Mod goes live.

The Hoster from Hell
Eldar Storm | December 30th, 2011

Bit off the beaten track from the stuff I generally post, but I thought I would give the world a bit of fair warning about these guys.

As you know TBU (The Builders Union) has a Minecraft server. In a effort to improve performance and stability we looked at a few VPS Hosters, one in particular had some good prices. One of those cases of too good to be true it seems.

The hoster in question is http://alienvps.com/. By no means would I ever recommend these guys. Their site indicates that you get “Instant setup” when you purchase a server. It has now been almost 48 hours since we purchased the server and still no setup. To answer some of the devils advocates out there, they charged and received payment shortly after purchase, so no wait there for them getting their money. I understand that its a holiday weekend, but two things on that. One, we purchased this Wed night, and they never responded saying they were gone or anything. I have been in contact with their Live chat several times, and the popular response that I get is “you will get your email soon”. We have placed a ticket with their billing, and have made attempts to contact them through live chat, but it seems even the people on their support chat cant get a response from their own billing department.

All in all, rants aside. I would not suggest these guys, and they should at least remove the “Instant setup” bit from their page.
