Server will be up almost every time, will close when maintenances are needed or events are hosted.


RULES (thanks VFA-49)

No Vulching

Means not attacking aircraft that are parked, on the runway, or on final landing approach. Overridden if willing participants are engaging in RP, or if rogue player is shooting at other players from the ground

Dogfighting

This is both a combat server and civilian flight server, all are welcome to join. However, make sure everyone is a willing participant. If you don't have permission, then don't attack. If continue to attack then it's the same as Vulching.

Attacking Civilians

Attacking an unarmed aircraft, without permission, is grounds for a ban. The exception is that the civilian aircraft may be participating in an online exercise, if this is the case then all pilots online must agree to whatever rules are set. DON'T FIRE ON CIVIL AIRCRAFT EVEN IF THEY ARE INVINCIBLE, this is done to protect most airline pilots but continuing to attack will result in disciplinary action (it's still annoying to the civil pilot)

Code of Disengagement

The recognized code of disengagement is the release of three (3) flares fired in close concession. This code marks you as someone who doesn't want to be attacked or when you want a threatening pilot to disengage. If an offender continues to attack then free fire on offender is allowed. This rule does not apply to those in a dogfight or a pilot that has had a free fire ordered on.

Ownership

This server is in no way a YSFHQ server and the admin of the server reserves the right to ban any person for any reason without prior notice. Reason may or may not be given.

SECURE THE ORBITAL ELEVATOR!

I liked the idea, so i'll be working on those whenever i can! Sidewinder Server will now host random events. Some permanent, others temporary.

The International Space Elevator ISEV (AKA Lighthouse) has made an appearence on North Kyusyu, and has been taken by unknown forces! Work your way through the enemies and secure it!

TIMER_DEBUG_SPAN_CREATED
End time: Unlimited

GROUND OBJECT PACK: Unavailable
====================================================

Words from the administrator(s):

Code: Select all

> We now have a new admin! Everyone, please welcome Welshy! He'll keep lookout on the server whilst Krux's gone.
> VPS upgraded! Expect less jumping/freezing. Anything happens, let us know!
> Squadron packs have been removed. Although administration encourages clashes between squadrons, to prevent any squad related drama, the CVW-171 Pack 4 (Including ground objects) and VFA-49 PACK V have been removed.

That escalated really quickly mind you

Uhm, hello people. Long story short, Sidewinder Server will close for time unknown.

Won't get into much detail, but Microsoft started charging way much for the VPS services i was using, and my Sponsorship money for that is running low.

To all that have made an appearance, I thank you.

Server will close in 01:00 AM 04/12/2018 GMT -3

How much were you being charged? We used to run a 2GB RAM VPS for around 9-12 USD a month through our provider.

My VPS was running a dual core Opteron with 4GB RAM (originally it was a single core with 2GB, but since they didn't charge me for compute hours back then and i had sponsorship money, i upgraded it for 12 bucks).

Now Microsoft charges you for Compute hours and Network Usage. I had not only the server running there but i also had a Discord bot as well. Not frequently used and only in one Discord server, but still.

Starting from 26 March, they charged me 55 USD for Compute hours and fees worth 34 more, for a total of 277 Compute hours (supposedly free, as they state in both Dreamspark and Azure for Students itself, the first 750 Hours of a VM should be free) and 6,55GB total download plus 1.83GB total upload. From the 100 USD i received from Microsoft Sponsorship, i only have 10 D:

Our VPS provider, Virmach, charges a flat rate of 10 bucks for a 2 Gig Server and they've been reliable and helpful. This setup is what we used on our old server before we downgraded due to our prior departure from YS for a while. You can upgrade (or downgrade) it as you wish at any time as well.

That's not his point. His point is he expected his BPS to be free through student deals from Microsoft and therefore cost him nothing.

I know that, yes. All I'm doing is saying - "hey, if you can afford 10 bucks, give this a shot".
