Adding the ability for servers to shutdown after 30hrs or so. Recently, servers have been very laggy once it reaches this time. Heart = Support!

a game i used to work on had really really dated code so after 35 hours the servers would just start lagging

so they had a countdown clock after 34 hours. once it reached 35 hours, it would lock the server and create a new one.

anyone that was still in that server would get an extra 20 minutes to finish up (and a button to take them straight to the new server) before the server shutdown for good.

or add a vote to shut down and like 50%+ of the server must say yes (gives 5 minutes from vote to actually shut down to allow RP to finish)

30 hours is like V2s breaking point, we physically cannot go any longer.

why…? no one plays for 30 hrs straight. Either its good when they play, or its laggy, and there’s a quick shutdown so they can play correctly again.

:flushed: didn’t know u swung that way comms

i know that, if you read the message i sent later you would know. i didnt know that they wanted you to get like a short notice for the shutdown. its not about playing v2 for 30 hours either, its more about what is disrupted when the game shuts down

Or just shut it down every night at like 3 AM EST… usually during the school year you only have 0-10 players.

a lot of people afk overnight and during the school/work day so doing that will mess most of us up

afk farming is the only way to make decent money ingame, people need to do it. it’s not against the rules either

ok but afk farming is not ‘intended’ or ‘optimal’
so if the server has to restart overnight to not fuck everyone else over, deal with it

what are some of the other options?

Players on the other side of the world, or quite literally, anyone else playing at 3 AM EST would then be subject to this.

Making it tick over to 30 hours and shutdown works better as it equally impacts everyone, and prevents servers being complete garbage.

you cant rely on people going legal to afford a demon
active businesses that pay are rare, sweetstreet, whipped cafe, and many others hire criminals but you are making barely any money off of working for an hour
commiting robberies speak for themselves, literally NO ONE who has brain cells robs an atm, bank, or store
