What finally allows the server to escape 'deadlocked' status?

Restart.
Nothing else.

It's caused by a crap in the code, some actions are waiting for each other to finish and blah blah we know how it ends, it never ends, I don't think there is a way to fix that on the fly with the server online, but I'm no dev.

Is it considered a bug that the planets are very overpopulated with creatures to be kill't?

Or is that how it was meant to be?

So it has to be manually restarted? That's what I'm not understanding. Doesn't Ekaika have the power to restart the server? Why would he have to say "it'll be this way for a few hours"?

because they are trying to fix the bug that caused the crash so it doesn't just crash again... thus a few hours are needed to fix it.

I think they need to be physically close to the server to restart it, and only Oru and TheAnswer can, that's what we've been told. :/
And "a few hours" until Oru and TA wake up and restart it.

Eko - When it deadlocks, logs are generated. The two Dev's that work on server stability are in Europe and are probably asleep right now. They'll be around in a few hours, and at that time will check the logs, fix the process bugs, and restart. And around and around we go.

No, I can't start it, neither can 90% of the developers. The reason for this is simple. If we do, it would just deadlock again the next time the same set of variables occurs. It is much more important to stop and fix, than to press through and lose valuable logging/debugging for the sake of playtime. All morning it went up and down as the guys worked out the kinks, but even we have to sleep sometimes =)

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the reply Ekaika, I've been wondering who has physical access to the server, and why they don't just restart it. Yer a smart feller!
