Downtimes: June 24 - July 2nd

We've got another batch of shutdowns coming in late June and early July, so that the machines can be repaired for the newest bug, the ZombieLoad CPU bug.

In general, the Genesis games (Grendel, TEC, TEC-Test) all have reboots scheduled for the absolute middle of the night, so I'll be taking each down the previous evening at midnight and bringing them back up the next morning at 9am.

The SkotOS games have always been more robust about reboots, so we'll let them reboot on their own, though there's some chance for an ~2 hour data loss. In any case, I'll be checking them after the 2-hour window when I can, though Marrach has a middle-of-the-night reboot, so that'll be the next morning.

The UserDB and Web reboots will cause some downtime for the entire site, but again they will hopefully come up cleanly.

GENESIS:

- Shutdown Grendel (late Sunday 6/23)

- Startup Grendel (early Monday 6/24)

- Shutdown TEC (late Monday 6/24)

- Startup TEC (early Tuesday 6/25)

- Check TEC Client (9pm Tuesday 6/25)

- Shutdown TEC-Test (late Thursday 6/27)

- Startup TEC-Test (Friday 6/28)


SKOTOS:

- Marrach (Monday early morning 6/24)

- Ironclaw (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Lovecraft, Lazarus (Monday 8pm-10pm 7/2)


MAIN SITE:

- UserDB (Monday 10pm-midnight 6/24)

- Web (Sunday 9pm-11pm 6/30)

    Belhrad's trade-ins opening will now give a (relatively) small credit for returning the boxes themselves, as well as the content. This credit scales up based on the level of box returned.

      Changes coming to Sharonpa's store today:

      1) The current box selections will be re-leveled in price, and contents. The prices will change for all boxes, but the amount of goods placed in them will go up to compensate.

      2) Two new box types will be unveiled. They are set to be roughly equivalent to bronze-level pricing, but at 20% higher cost, to reflect that they allow you to selectively purchase specific types of goods in the box.

      3) Sharonpa's half-off sales will still happen, but now individuals can earn one-time half-off purchases based on their spending. Redeeming trade-in credit will not apply towards earning personal sales.

        Minor Updates:

        Belhrad no longer considers the contents of newly purchased boxes when he brings out wares for you. Prior purchased boxes are still tracked.

        To help alleviate this, if you respond to Belhrad's mentioning of what he THINKS you want with a positive or negative indication ("yes" or "no" will work, as will a nod or headshake), it will correct over time, but can only be done once per instance of him mentioning a preference.

          Belhrad's "Bring Something Out For You" logic has been tweaked and he'll now have trouble finding something for you more often, but what he does bring out should align more with what you've previously purchased.

          Also he'll stop saying patrician's last names out loud when speaking to them.

            Well, the bad news is that the half-off boxes for individuals is not working, and won't work without seriously rewriting a lot of store code, so that bit of code is getting disabled until I can figure out an easier way to make it work.

            The good news is, I'm tweaking half off sales to happen more regularly as a result.

              Based on player suggestion, 'Clothing' and 'Jewelry' boxes are added to Sharonpa's store now.

                Trade in credit has been tweaked slightly. Bonuses to trade-in value are applied to characters who have spent more physical cash at Belhrad's stores in the past.

                  Somewhere in Monlon, a formerly-disgraced employee of Belhrad's has opened up shop, selling weapons similar in appeal to his old employer's work.
