So sometimes it worth just saying it, we done Goofed......
We are 10 months since we slowed down SW hoping for a new game and it hasn't happened.
So last week I posted a poll on the Discord and got the result I expected.
We are bringing back the MC Server
Yes you see it right we are bringing back MC. Totally new server built from the ground up on a MC server host which will help with some of the cost problems.
Time for the brutal truth here... Running SWGaming is expensive- not just in terms of time and effort, but in terms of money as well. The current setup we have will cost about £30 per month to run (That's the MC server, Domains and webhosting). this is much better than when it was hosted on the top of the washing machine (that was £75 per month). SW's finances are running low- we have enough money to run the server and website for about 6 months. We need your help to keep everything going.
To this end we are putting up a donation meter. This will help people see how much we need every month.
As it stands I'm not sure if the kits will come back but you will at the very least get your pretty colours (once I set it back up). My focus is in getting the server up and running and secure then we will fix the pretty things like Raid World and coloured tags.(edited)
As always the Exec will exist however at this time we are not reappointing the admin team (we may change that very quickly when things get going). This has nothing to do with the A Teams ability, the ATeam did a fantastic job but with an expected player count of 20 having 5-7 admins return is a bit over kill, The exec will handle that to start with but if we find that its a mental idea we will look at this again.
When will it be up I hear you cry? SooooooN(tm) - My aim is to have it running Saturday night or Sunday morning. I'm waiting on some passwords for some database rubbish but there's no much to do with it.
Finally you can blame PixiePirate for the name of the map. Snowfired wasn't much better.......
