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.

  • Cheating - rules/penalties

    Hello all,

    I just want to go over some basic rules here in regards to what is considered cheating.

    First off, no scripting/bots are allowed. What this means is, don't run any scripts that repeat certain actions, nor special programs that run while you are away from the game itself. Doing so is unfair to the other players and it can also cause lag to the game. Macros are allowed however, so long as you are actually typing in the macro command.

    Staff will monitor unusual activity, as well as put in safeguards within the code itself. If any player is caught running scripts, they may be automatically fined in-game (for any ill-gotten gains), have their skill levels altered, and their accounts may be suspended or banned permanently.

    Alt abuse - This one is a tad trickier to define, but basically, do not use one of your characters to benefit your main or any other characters under your account. This also applies to multiple accounts run by the same person (which, in itself, is also frowned upon by Skotos, unless you are paying for the multiple accounts). Do not share objects or wealth between any of your characters, even indirectly.

    This becomes a bit of a grey area regarding in-game knowledge. When several of your characters interact with the same people, it is harder to define exactly what one character knows... and another doesn't. To be safe, do not share information between any of your characters unless it is considered common knowledge.

    If caught abusing alts, your account may be suspended or banned.
