Shock and Rockets is now running on Ping Perfect, a gaming server provider. We’ll see how it goes and maybe upgrade to a dedicated machine in the future. So far so good, performance is better than the previous Amazon ec2 installation.
UPDATE: Actually, it wasn’t that consistent, so it’s back on Amazon ec2 but with twice the grunt.
A few ctf favorites have been added to make use of the extra power, although the server is still limited to 13 spots. With the small player base this should be good for now.
Dying sun is looking good with lighting and music.
Erase has had some minor changes, which is of course a big deal as it has been unchanged for ages.
Custom maps are being added slowly, with nitro, codex, echo, coma, and some heresiarch maps up.
A new UT Build brings a update to Dying Sun. I’m working on it behind the scenes and releasing with each build. This was a very fun DM and kudos to all these players (except me, the_hack) who were trying for the first time, some on very high ping.
It’s also compatible with Domination – let me know what you think about the objective point placement.
