@  Fenris_Wolf : (05 June 2018 - 03:13 PM) ya the globals been a real pain the last 8/9 months or so, edit the shortcut to your freelancer.exe, and add -sflserver.tekagis.ca:2302
@  McKooter : (05 June 2018 - 02:21 PM) Been good, i gotta figure out how to connect, i got the game, i have the mod... but i click and no global servers, no way to find the server. Ill admit its been 5 years since i have tried to connect...
@  Fenris_Wolf : (04 June 2018 - 09:33 PM) hey mck how you been?  :)
@  McKooter : (04 June 2018 - 02:57 PM) O_o hey guys
@  Fenris_Wolf : (29 May 2018 - 02:27 PM) The flserver doesnt run on the same line as the webserver. Since FL doesnt really run on linux so well its more of a home hosted connection, where our webserver is located in a datacenter on a fast line. Ellis was probably using his bandwidth for something else last night
@  Nameless : (29 May 2018 - 05:27 AM) Hmmm...  Average ping from the game server of ~2500 for several hours.  The websites is ~70.
@  Nameless : (26 May 2018 - 04:29 PM) I don't mind doing reps per se.  It's trying to get white or green with ALL of them at one time.  Right now my main character, Nameless, is white to all but Boskos, Admins and the Bundschuh.  It just took 300+ hours online to figure out who to kill, where to bribe, and which supply depots to destroy when.  Best two depots are the BH in Manchester and Shikoku, and the Liberty cops at Manhattan.  Fixes most things right up.   :P
@  Fenris_Wolf : (24 May 2018 - 02:41 PM) I aways hated doing reps  <_<
@  Nameless : (24 May 2018 - 07:38 AM) Fen, I hate mazes and fixing reps with so dang many factions.  Let's see if I can get neutral with everyone but the Boskos and Admins.  And figure out how to blow up mazes!   :rolleyes:
@  Nameless : (23 May 2018 - 12:00 AM) Yup, -sflserver.tekagis.ca  or On it right now.


New Addition to the server, TekagisBot!

The last few days I've been working on a new creation to assist in helping maintain smooth operation of the server, and to help players get in contact with us in a timely manor. The bot bridges the gap between the forum shoutbox, the game server, and our skype chats (both the admin and public chats).


* Chat entered into the shoutbox is now posted to the public skype chat (with a short delay)


* In game chat that is sent to the 'console' (instead of system or another player) is also posted to the public channel, allowing communication with people not on the server.


* using the command '/admin <text>' while in game, is now posted to the admin skype chat. Please reserve its use for help requests, reporting bugs or abuse, or its use will be restricted.


* Things like checking on server status, and who's online can be done from the public skype chat.


* Logins, disconnects, and deaths are displayed in the public chat. Swapping characters is not posted, only the initial login, and all IP addresses are obviously filtered from the messages.


* The bot is partially aware of the content of the mod files, and we can use it to run server commands, allowing us to diagnose and solve many problems faster.


Its designed specifically to allow adding of new features to it without difficulty or forcing a update/restart of the bot, and shortly I'll be adding a in game command to auto-add people to the public skype chat.


TekagisBot is expected to go live on the server later tonight B)

perl -e 'print join("",(a .. z," ")[9,20,18,19,26,0,13,14,19,7,4,17,26,15,4,17,11,26,7,0,2,10,4,17])'

As some of you may have noticed, TekagisBot has a new feature, The Wheel of Fate.

The Wheel gives players a chance to win prizes, or suffer negative effects. Current outcomes include cash (win or lose, up to 100 mil), vacations to far away exotic planets (random beam commands), reputation changes (red, green or white rep, with 1 to 5 factions), or gear (including the much asked for Magnums and Ultrahull VIII's!)

Please be aware the rep changes may mess up your carefully collected bribes (or save you the hassle of having to collect bribes!).

Current requirements to play The Wheel are must have at least 100m cash (since you can lose that much on a bad outcome), and no more then 1.5bil (to prevent winning results from pushing your character past the 2.1bil worth limit)

More unique outcomes will be added soon (like bounty hunts and missions to get to specified bases before a timer runs out)


This is a in game feature, activated with the command /fate

perl -e 'print join("",(a .. z," ")[9,20,18,19,26,0,13,14,19,7,4,17,26,15,4,17,11,26,7,0,2,10,4,17])'

TekagisBot has a new trick thats been quietly running on the server for a few days now, a /garage command, allowing you to store ships! Owning multiple ships per character is now a option (i have 3 characters and 10 ships atm). Your garage, much like your bank, is shared across all characters in a account, so you can swap their ships around easy. All equipment and cargo on the ship are included.

At the moment, ship storage charges are a flat rate of 10 credits per second (864,000 per day, or around 26m per month), any owed fee's will be deducted from your bank when you goto use the ship.

Ships are also stored at what ever base you left it at, if you wish to move them to another base, the storage fee and a aditional 10m will be deducted from your bank.

Note any time you store or swap ships you will be kicked from the server




/garage list                                  - If used with no arguments, shows the list of ships at your current base

/garage list all                             - Shows a list of all bases you have ships at

/garage list <base>                     - Shows a list of ships at that base, the ship's ID, and the owing storage fee


these commands can only be used docked:

/garage store                              - stores your current ship, character is left with no ship and can buy a new one

/garage swap <ship id>               - stores your current ship, and gets in the ship with the specified ID number (use /garage list to find the ID)

/garage move <base> <ship id>  - moves the given base and ship id to the place where the character is currently docked.



Ideally later I'll have the storage fee based on ship size and base rep, with the move cost based on shipsize and distance. I'll add the features so you can sell/transfer ships to other players, or abandon them completely.


IMO this plugin opens up alot of possible options, from equipping new clan members, giving players special ships to participate in 'ship restricted events', blackmarket ships (when rep becomes more important), even pvp matches for pinkslips!
