After all that has been done to improve GunColony, there is little left before the server is ready for large-scale consumption. As a result I am proud to notify you that the server will be moved to a new machine soon, both as a measure to solve our lag issues and as a gateway to expand our server to offer wider services to a larger playerbase.
New Server Machine Specifications:
- Intel Xeon E5-1650 v2 hexa-core CPU, 3.9 GHz all core boost (up from quad core 3.3 GHz)
- 48GB (6*8GB) quad channel DDR3-1866 memory (up to 10GB dual channel DDR3-1600)
- 250GB Solid State Drive (up from 120GB)
- 500GB 7200RPM Hard Drive (up from 256GB USB flash drive)
Edit 3/16: The server and website have been successfully moved to the new machine. Do note that the server is currently running on bash scripts because I could not get the server panel set up tonight, but you should nevertheless see the performance improvement.
Edit 3/16 #2: The server is now converted to run on the dedicated control panel so I can now access the console from the web. Sorry for the downtime and thanks for your understanding!
