Events!

Hello

Over the past few weeks we’ve had enquiries from DayZ community leaders about using our server for events

Nothing makes us happier and we’ve been privileged to have been able to help as best we can

Unfortunately, at times this has impacted our own, very cherished, visitors (casual or repeat, we appreciate them all) who have had to step aside from our secondary server or whatever

This doesn’t feel ‘fair’ and anyone that knows our Server Mod Team will know we always try and make everything as fair as possible for everyone.

We now have a separate ‘Events’ server, it’s a completely separate hive and can be reconfigured or scrubbed and cleaned as needed

Server: Spaggie. UK. 1PP. Private. Events!
85.236.100.102:2402

We only have it on short term lease to feel out how useful it is to the DayZ community

If you need a 60 slot private hive, passworded (we can’t be arsed with whitelists) server for a day, 2 days or a week or something. Please let us know.

We’d love to have you!

It’s a 60 slot server. It’s completely it’s own world. We can do stuff with it. You give us a password, we’ll set that password, you share that password. If you’d rather not use a password, you don’t have to. We can still wipe and it’s just open

Spaggie says he can’t do anything other than 1PP though so no 3PP

  • Organisation and private comms to the Mod team are confidential. It’s your event
  • The longest event we’d consider is probably a ~week for super special events
  • Server is 1PP – 100% non-negotiable
  • Server runs a 3x time acceleration – If you want to change this talk to Spaggie
  • Server start time ingame is 4:45am  – If you want to change this talk to Spaggie
  • This means the server has a sunrise, day, dusk, night in a 6 hours and restarts
  • 3x Time Accelerator impacts eating and drinking, you need a little more
  • Server has a 6 hour reset (currently 7 and 1 oclocks) – This is not changeable
  • Jack will never ever spend a month dicking around with server times ever again, because Fuck That Shitting Shit
  • We can wipe the server but leave characters
  • We can wipe the server and wipe characters
  • Doing a full wipe before an event needs about 2 days to settle the loot we feel
  • Server Mods may be running around, we find it accelerates loot, and we like to have a check around. If you log in while password is in force before event starts MODS WILL NOT SHOOT FIRST. EVER.
  • Our hosties, Multiplay are super helpful and amazing.  We ask for wipes by help ticketing so can’t exactly time it, it happens when the ticket tracks through support, which is usually very quick, but best to leave an SLA window for them
  • We will not do whitelists (we tried once, it was a nightmare of ‘can you add me after the start’, no, it was a shitshow)
  • The Server has DAST and a big BEC driven BanList
  • We can exclude people who know the password by kicking and banning if we can find their GUID from the hits log
  • Mods will usually try to provide event air cover but not guaranteed
  • This is a completely separate realm to our other servers
  • We cannot control: weather, loot, spawns etc.
  • We will try and deliver event logs to the community leader but they’re ropey
  • Mods may like an invite (3 out of the 5 mods currently play DayZ regularly)
  • We’ll probably run the server unpassworded when it’s not eventing.
  • Mods are ridiculously time poor, go easy on us
  • If it all goes wrong, it’s not our fault. We did our best
  • Server Rules apply tl;dr=we do our best, don’t be a dick on our servers
  • Shouting out the servers would be great please, unless it all goes wrong
  • We reserve the right to just say no, no hard feelings, there may be other stuff going on (Which we can’t share because of Confidentiality)
  • Love you <3

That time I played with Streamers – Part 1

tl;dr It’s not about me, Streamers are awesome.

If you don’t know what Twitch is find out here

 

This week I’ve been lucky to play with two Streamers in very different circumstances, let’s wander around how streamers use Twitch. A Streamer is a micro-broadcaster and wants to provide engaging entertainment. They want the community to grow. The entertainment value is the lever that grows the community.

Inviting a sub into the place where they generate the raw materials of their financial recompense is very dangerous for them. The community is very charitable during these ‘sub events’ but the streamer is putting their entire revenue source at risk. Even at the most basic level, if the sub stream isn’t engaging then they’ve lost an evening of ‘good’ content creation, revenue has been displaced. The channel is at risk. It’s not riskless.

ROAD TRIP TO THE REAL CHERNARUS – DAYZ IRL – DRONE FOOTAGE

Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

Camps and Barrels

We’re running an event, the details are here, why not enter? : Event Don’t be scared

In DayZ there’s effectively two databases of stuff, There’s Public and there’s Private

Within those 2 databases there’s 2 parts, 1PP and 3PP, which lists out like

Public : 1PP is separate to

Public : 3PP is separate to

Private : 1PP is seperate to

Private : 3PP

They’re like different worlds (that look very much the same)

If you’ve got a tent on 1PP Public you can’t carry it over to a 3PP Public or a 1PP Private etc

But you can carry it to any other 1PP Public server

 

With Private, the Hive may be one single machine, everything you do is kept in that one singe instance of DayZ. Or that hive might be shared between a couple of servers (shard)

 

With Spaggie Server we love the randomness of Public, and we love the immersion of 1PP

Anything you find on Spaggie Server you can take to any other 1PP Public Server, and bring back

 

During an Event that changes, we ‘Shelve’ the 1PP Public Hive and change to a 1PP Private Hive

After the Event we swap back

We’ve done testing and careful planning and every time we’ve done this Camps, Barrels and stashes come back AS LONG AS THEY’RE WITHIN THEIR PERSISTANCE TIME

A stashed backpack will disappear because the event is longer than 4 hours

A tent will stay if you visited it in the few days before (as usual)

You just wont be able to visit it on the day

Any camps created during the Private Hive event may come back as part of the next Private Hive event or we may intentionally flush the presistance of the private hive depending on the upcoming event

Public is Public and your public hive stuff is there
and
Private is Private and your private hive stuff is there
and we occassionally swap the server between them
after lots of public notice

 

Why not come get whitelisted for the Event Don’t be scared

How to fly around DayZ

Posted in Random, Video | Leave a comment

2016 and DayZ

I wanted to round out on 2016 with some memorable standout happenings around DayZ this year, in no particular order:

The amazing, brilliant, erudite, eloquent, intelligent and different people that are brought together by DayZ there are no borders, there’s just the pure truth and love of the community

Howard, Jarl and Luc, you guys are fucking nuts

Helping out someone who’d almost single handedly police’d the community get over the line with their new PC after finding out they were so close

Helping a [fairly] random person with a replacement to their all time favourite mouse after they broke theirs

Singing Weiner Schnitzel with Sir Toasty

Multiplay for keeping a server up all year with a fairly hard to find configuration

TheRunningManZ leaving his job and his community seemingly making it work for him, and for letting me get drunk in his stream and blathering like a twat

M1ndr getting feisty about badly timed donations (and his cooking stream)

Tope and his clan for being able to become monsters at the drop of a hat, and for letting me reszta mojego penisa na jego ramieniu babci

The Mods that change tone for different streamers and keep it all honest

DayZ for prompting me to do some mad hardware stuff in the pursuit of FPS

The Dev Team for doing so much work and for doing all the things no one realises they’re doing

Hicks, DH and Baty for understanding that most of the time discovering something is more joyful than being told it, and finding the balance

Geez for somehow making order out of complete chaos

The arseholes who constantly moan about the same things and allowing me to feel superior

Wednesday afternoons

The Czech Republic for being full on beautiful, and for kind of letting me know it in a not knowing it completely weird kind of way

The status updates which must be a ball breaker for all concerned

The guy who felt like he was just in front of me taking all the good loot

All the leg breaks

Twitch for being The Future of Television

Anyone that’s ever made a DayZ youtube video or had a pop at streaming DayZ, ever

 

 

Anyone got anything to add?

A while ago the server was logged on GameTracker for a few reasons

We’ve unregistered the server from there now for a few reasons

50 Slots again?

Well, it’s like trying to get the shower to be the right temperature

So I’m trying an experiment

Since snipping to 40 the server hasn’t really gone above 10 players which is too low, so let’s turn it back up to 50 to see if that’s an effect

See how it pans out

40 Slots?

When the server was started it was because I wanted a configuration I couldn’t find anywhere else.

I wanted public hive, because of the great, non-cliquey meetings it generates, really random encounters where you do not know what the outcome will be.

I wanted as minimal a HUD as I could make to help with immersion, just simply to enjoy the beauty of the game

I wanted 1PP because I beleive it not only gives the best immersive feel, but it also is more ‘real’, the 3PP camera manipulation for advantage is just ridiculous. I also love 1PP for the blinker effect, you can run right past people and not see them.

The server was always low slots, because there’s a balance in DayZ, I think you don’t want to always find people, you want to have time to relax into the game, have time to Explore and move around. For a meeting to not be a certainty. Post apocolyptic meetings should be few and far between, but be a real experience when they do happen.

DayZ had some bad times at the end of .59 and no one noticed. As .60 came in I was able to help my DayZ Bruddas get on a .60 Stable server, so the slots were maxed to 50 and the server has been visited by thousands of people. I’m very glad to have been able to furnish slots for people to play.

But a 50 slot server isn’t the game *I* want to play. Every time we play we meet someone. That meeting generally ends in a shootout. It’s lost it’s randomness. Every time you play, there’s a shootout. It’s not fun.

Over the last couple of days the frenzy of .60 has dissipated somewhat and the server isn’t maxed at peak times. Slots cost money. I’m paying to not play the game I want to play.

For these reasons, the server has been stepped down to 40 slots, to try and spread players out some. It may step down to 30 slots to spread players out even more.

If you’ve any thoughts on this, please let me know.
