Forums Reversion

The cloud server that hosts the main Skotos web site and the forums experienced a hardware failure on Saturday morning that unfortunately led to severe database corruption. Several attempts to restore it failed.

This led us to our backups, but the timing was a bit unfortunate. Since the failure occurred on a weekend morning, we didn't see it until after a new backup occurred, which contained the corrupted data, and which removed our previous daily backup. This forced us to our weekly backup, which was unfortunately at the end of its time: six days old.

So, the forums are back, but we had a six-day reversion.

This should not have affects on the rest of the site, since the majority of our data is saved in our main-user-database or our games, all on remote machines.

    We found gravel. You are a cruel cruel man, Tale.

    Technically, you can do all the steps now to build the road. The How-To guide will be released after Sunday's event, but feel free having fun doing your best with no guide until then. I did fix the gravel sacks, btw.

    Only hint I'll give you for now: instead of using "dig" to fill sand/gravel sacks, try the new "shovel" command. Cool points for the first person to figure out where you can collect gravel unaided.

    I was more referring to the things that aren't actually released, go ahead, dig.

    Are you kidding me?

    This is the most exciting mundane-mind-numbing activity I've ever done in this game. I've never been a part of history like this in this game before. And I've missed all of the content updates save for QH. I'm digging the f*** out of this road.

    Hahaha.

    That means that the ditch is deep enough in that section, move on to a new one. Each section requires 100 digs.

    When I try to empty the (oiled burlap sack filled with lots of sand), my echo is (There is insufficient sand in this sack).
    Damn it is 157 pounds of sand...
    This road is gotta be made with mule backers. I don't know how others are going to do it.

    Pirris is the shop to buy supplies from.
    Heads up, You can only get a coarse burlap sack from his desk if there are two on it and you [get 2 sack from desk].
    Get sack from desk gives me 'you can't get that from here'

    Ahhh I am so taking a work break day! Loving this! At work, but I am building text roads instead!

    I've sucessfully gathered 7 bags of sand.
    The gravel sacks are completely broken, and no idea where to get gravel anyway.
    Siddhe was apparently watching, since those gravel bags are so broken they were spamming errors, so... that's where to get sand and how. If you can find the code I was accessing, that's where that is. If you didn't rewrite that.

    Also the store doesn't sell the spikes.

    I remember when I first started playing TEC back when the earth was still cooling and got irate because there was a limit out past Vetallun. My dull teenage brain thought you should be able to walk to all of these far away places instead of having to take a dumb ladder. Pretty sure I rage deleted that explorer.
