[NOVA] Service Interruption and Database Wipe 1/23/09

Hello Everybody.

On Thursday, January 22, at 11:30 AM EST Nova Test Centre was taken down for server maintenance and a normal SVN update up to revision 1194.

This update is still in progress. There have been numerous setbacks which have called for the complete reinstall of our Test Centre operating system.

Once the updates, reinstalls and fixes are complete, we will launch the Test Centre, however it may remain unavailable while we complete final testing.

UPDATED Estimated Launch: (subject to change)
Sunday January 25
Time (USA): 4AM EST
(New York) / 3AM CST (Chicago) / 1AM PST (San Francisco) / 11PM HST (Honolulu)
Time (International): 9AM GMT (London) / 10AM CET (Berlin) / 8PM AEST (Sydney)


Included in this update will be:

Medic and Combat Medic
  • Added Area handling for pharmaceutics
  • Added Combat Medic Ranged and Area Stimpacks
  • Updated healdamage handles combat medic stimpack
  • Fixed healing crash
Scout and Ranger
  • Fixed Trap uses when out of range
  • Fixed trap accuracy calculations
  • Fixed Camp logout bug
Crafting
  • Updated Crafting code, components objects, process
Core3
  • Fixed Compile error
Database
  • Full Database Wipe
  • Fixed galaxy table
  • Added skill_children
  • Added drop if table exists in terminals table
Test Centre Nova
  • Full Operating System Reinstall
  • mySQL Server Complete reinstall and update
As noted, this Update will include a FULL DATABASE WIPE. Please help your fellow players when they freak out. Tell them to remain calm, have a glass of milk, and eat their cookies.

We are sincerely sorry for the inconvenience. It was an unforseen event which Oru is working very hard to fix up. Please, at some time today, drop into #opendev and say "THANK YOU ORU!". It's the least we can do for him spending his whole day working.

Thankyou for your patience.

Thumbs up

Tis a good thing to see more updates coming....

The database wipe, some may not like, but it is a "Test Center" after all.

Thanks to Oru for all his hard work maintaining the server. Its unfortunate that an entire reinstall was needed, as that is quite a bit of work.

And of course a big "Thanks" to all involved in keeping the dream alive, and giving us back the game that we paid for. I was one of the Beta testers for the original Galaxies, its so nice to be one again, and to see it returning to its former glory. Down with the NGE !
