Yes but now, since we're forced to start from IFF2, we get shot as soon as we spawn.

Yes. The fix in my previous post will have to be installed by both the server and client to solve the problem.

I'm sorry I caused so much trouble for you and everyone who couldn't join your server.

I don't mind, all is good :)

Removed a bunch of rarely used packs.

Map now Saipan for a test... Should be interesting to see the results.

I've dumped a bunch of addons from the server. When I was flying on CP and 42S I noticed that many of the aircraft flown are usually the same thing. As a result, I dumped a few packs (see first post) and kept many of the 'usual' addons that people use regularly. Tohoku is the map now as well - let me know if the login issue is still happening after this change.

I've been away from home for a month and the server had a reset. I've been unable to connect to it from here but will be home Monday. Server should be back up by then.

I was wondering what was going on. It's good to hear from you.

Wonder if it will work for me after this?... Probably not, but I like keeping my hopes high...

It is with some sadness that I announce that the 42South YSFlight Server will be finally shutdown for good on the 22nd of December 2014.

This decision is not a light one, but a decision that I make with some necessity. The upkeep costs of the server exceed the fun factor as I'll be on my final University placement during the period after Christmas until late January. Shortly after I will have finished my final exams and possibly moving state which will be a busy time ahead. As a result, the cost vs benefit needs to be assessed and the 42S server is the first to go.

I'd like to thank my excellent team of admin:


Rise and Shine
Varren
MD5Ray01
Copperhead
Robert Sanderson
Venom
Doomsday
Philster


Without which, the server would not have run as smoothly as it has over the past 3-4 years it has operated.

I'd also like to thank the pilots who have flown on the server and made it worthwhile to run. With your help 42South has amassed the second highest flight hours of any server in YSF history and the-soon-to-have second most users in YSF history. If your name is on this list then thanks for making it fun.

Two of 42South's trademark maps should also get a mention:

Tohoku modified by FrenchTOZT
Hawaii modified by VNAF ONE

These maps have had an extensive workout over the duration that 42S has run and I'm sure they have made the server all the more enjoyable.


I'm planning to run an event on the server before it finally closes, more or less to celebrate the end of an era with the closure of the current most populated public server. Most likely it will be a simple mass fly-around followed by an massive furball but we'll wait and see.


Finally. Something that has made 42S iconic is the 42South Admin Plane. This has been used by the admin team to deal with trouble makers where possible and is often the object of many people's desires, including those who also run servers. As a Christmas present, I will upload and officially release the admin plane on HQ so that anyone may bask in it's glory.


Thanks folks!

Thanks for the notice Midnight, too bad to see the server go as it was a "gathering ground" of sorts for combat and civilian types alike. Appreciate your efforts :).

Your server was excellent and will be missed. We will have to make the most use of it for the remainder of this month.

Thank you for even mentioning my name despite the fact I never pulled my weight as an admin.

Even though I haven't been active the past few months (or even years, its been a while), the 42s server was always the first placed I looked in order to rekindle the joy I found within ysflight. Thank you for the countless hours of fun you have brought by hosting the server. It will be greatly missed.

Goodbye,42South.... ;'(
why I choose 42South server is the best server ever is=
-CP's server often too laggy to play
-some other server always offline except some of it includes 42S....

I hope someone continues this epic saga of YSFlight server...
I also hope someone arrange an event for the last days of 42South....

Ode to 42South
[/b]

From the golden age of the internet, men where looking for entertaintement,
As we gazed upon the virtual realm,
Something stood out for its nourishement,
42South, out of it all, would stronger gleam,

May it be for a quick flight, as well as the daily furball,
With pleasure, we joined your eternal sky,
Newbie or veteran, military or commercial,
We all gathered with no shy,

Now, as the sky darkens, we look upon new horizons, but we remember,
As if the virtual realm was reaching our very real lives,
We remember the enjoyement of 42South skies,
After all this, one thing to say; Thank you Midnight Rambler.
