This is why MCSG devs should never sleep! I woke up to the web box being unfortunately down for quite some time. My alerts sadly didn't wake me up and discovered about 70 minutes ago. After 10 phone calls later, finally gave some nice wake up calls to get them to look into the issue. We found out that our servers hard drive was filled to host a 76GB access log file! Thank subv3rsion for discovering this and I think MCSG will be mailing him a cookie shortly.
So been while since our update on the AU locations but we finally have good news! Our new datacenter is provisioning our server tonight and we will be abandoning ship on our old datacenter. We had some people in AU test the new location via some test servers thanks to CubedHost! People reported that even Le0 (our new zealand Sr.mod) had a better connection, which is a miracle within itself! With this swap, we will be taking AU down for some time and will be back up later today. We will update you here once the new servers are online!
Also on a side note, please give us feedback on this new location as we really want to make sure this is a better situation for you! Our costs jumped to $400 more a month just with this location, so we want to make sure we are not paying for something that is bad! Again thanks for the feedback before and sorry this took so long!
Side note: We plan to look for a better CA location for next month as that datacenter has been giving us...
Sooo I pushed an update a few hours ago to increase the view distance back to what it used to be - what does everyone think?
(For those not sure what I'm talking about, the server view distance controls how far you can see people/other entities.)
