So...what do you all think about how the gameplay feels on the test server we're currently running Warfare on, compared to a week ago?

The server costs about twice the monthly amount for significantly smoother gameplay. It has more cores so we could potentially run more servers than we currently do.

If you prefer it, are you willing to help donate a little more for it to stay running?

If you'd be willing to help by setting up a regular Euro donation of even a few Euro a month through the donation link To help keep running whichever server option we decide upon that would be even more appreciated. https://miasma.rocks/pages/donate.php

We are still exploring other options - but your input to the discussion and experience on the servers' gameplay feeling would be really useful.

The server runs way better than the previous one. We just need to find the perfect tickrate setting for the right amount of players.

I love this server much more, then the populated one. Cant u make it so, that people redirect to that ip and port? so they can test the server under 'force'?

This is the only one running ONS & vCTF (Warfare) isn't it?

We got up to 30 people by stealing 16 players from Freon the other day :)

Hello,

During the game on the new server, I did not notice lags as it was before. In General, the game on this server I like a lot more. And since we now have more performance, add more spectator slots please.

Piglet, add more ways to donate, because using paypal is a pain for me. I can not even choose Russia in the drop-down list when paying because such a country is not there.

Hi Timon,

What other route would work for you? We don't currently have a bank account set up for Miasma, but I could potentially look at doing that.

We currently have a Paypal account which can be used for anything we need, and a NFOservers donation account we can only spend for NFOservers hosting (the VPS that currently has the Freon and iCTF servers - and up till last week had the Warfare server.

Hmmm - I'm not sure I have the skills to do that systematically, but I could keep things up to date manually.

The existing setup was this site which has the server monitors & forum (paid for in $), and the VPS which hit 100% cpu on large player number (paid in $ quarterly).

We'll need to keep this site, but have the option of the new server or the VPS in the future.

We do have some funds in the VPS account which we can only use for that. I forgot to cancel my donations to it...so if someone's willing to trade real money for a transfer of funds on Nfoservers account that would be nice...

For this server the charges are in Euros and if we're allowed to keep the server (we're finding out) we can either pay monthly or yearly. Paying yearly saves  €36 over the monthly cost.

The current state of the coffers are that we need a little over €120 more to pay for the server for a whole year in one lump and then start saving for next year's bill, or we can pay monthly for a few months with what we have while saving for the next monthly bill.
