Server Switch & Site Direction The Starport News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2015/4/3 15:43:45 (953 reads)

Hey guys,

since donations have dried up a little bit (thanks anyway!), I decided that I will switch to a lower-cost server sometime next week. The new server will save us 20€ per month while the hardware is almost the same - the CPU being a little less powerful while we actually get an upgrade to enterprise-level HDDs! Everything will essentially stay the same. I expect the downtime to be at most a couple of hours but it could extend to a whole day, depending on arising problems.



Anyways, I'd like to take the opportunity to get a discussion started on the future of TSP. While we still get a good amount of traffic and player numbers are somewhat stable around the 150 players mark, it is clear that the party cannot go on forever. I'm happy to leave the site as-is and leave it centered on FL. On the other hand, the latest poll has shown that there would be interest in Star Citizen modding or other games. We don't really have the resources to do anything drastic with the site currently, but I'd still like to hear some opinions on this.

Thanks,
w0dk4 (aka chaosgrid in SC)

Arena Commander (Dogfighting Module) released Star Citizen News
Posted by w0dk4 on 2014/6/6 12:25:58 (2161 reads)

After many delays, finally the dogfighting module called "Arena Commander" for Star Citizen has been released.

The multiplayer part of the module will be rolled out based on your citizen number, so if you backed Star Citizen early, the higher are your chances to get in.



Also interesting is the Freelancer-style mouse aiming, where weapons follow your mouse cursor.
If you turn "Coupling" off (Caps Lock button), you will get something similar to "engine kill" in Freelancer, though it is more of a "lock velocity vector" right now.

Happy dogfighting!

DS9 Freelancer Server Freelancer Server News
Posted by starworlds on 2012/9/20 23:46:50 (5936 reads)

Hi all!

Ds9 has been around and running since 2003! We were with some of the first servers created and started adding to the game along time ago.

Now we are coming back with a rebuild! We are sticking with the Sci-Fi universe with ships from all your favourite shows + some wacky ones! But now we are working on the balance of the mod, bringing those prices down and adding some of the great FLHook options that have been added to other great servers!

We host server hunts and games on a weekly basis with our current player base and welcome you all to join, even if its for just that bit of fun.

The mod is under constant revision at the moment while our development team work on balancing the mod and building our RP story which we are hoping will bring all the sci-fi universes together for the first time, while creating a fantastic RP environment around it, and if you dont like RP then just come and have a look around.

This is not a Mod based on ANY other mod and we are working very hard to bring it back up to scratch with the FL community, so please come and support us, as every person added to our forum or server is a pat on the back for us

New clans who come on our server will receive 200 million credits to help them start up, plus we have a section on our forums with advice on how to start up your own clan and keep it going. Systems are rented by clans, who in turn can rent out bases to individual players who want their own base to reside in and pay rent monthly.

Below I will list some of the features we currently have, please check out our forum to see what we are working on! Hope to see you soon

Features:-
- 237+ Added ships
- Loads of added commodities
- Loads of added equipment
- 20+ new systems
