Old Information Icosahedron of Gravity A Private Dedicated Terraria Server (Icosahedron means 20-sided solid, and I chose this name because I already had the "gravity.cc" domain, and wanted to pick a word that reflected the number 20 in a slightly obscure way for the hostname. This name is actually too long in its full form and is really "Icosahedron Gravity" on the server itself.) Terraria Official Website Portal Icosahedron Admin/Status Blog Icosahedron Steam Group tShock Mod Wiki Yes, Icosahedron Is/Will Be/Does: Have an events calendar! Welcome international players! Offer VoIP services for its members (Mumble) Require promotion to a special user group to build/dig, explosives will be limited only to frequently active players. The events I schedule will last for minimum 24 hours so that international members get a chance to participate without adjusting their own schedule Hosted in Dallas, Texas at a professional datacenter (Xenon Servers, a sponsor of the tShock mod official forums) Have active administration! Will ban cheaters! If you want to cheat, cheat elsewhere. Leave hacked items in other worlds please. I’m not against cheating altogether but I don’t want it on a server I’m going to lengths to make legitimately fun & protected from abuse. Will ban vandals! Although I am going to measures to prevent vandalism, ordinary users will still be able to dig, fight, and probably summon. Due to the open basic registration, the server will be password protected on the official launch. No, Icosahedron Won’t: Actually support 20 simultaneous users on a regular basis except during events! It will probably be limited to 10 upon launch, to prevent overconsumption of resources. Activate hard mode if the Flesh Wall boss is killed until the official Hard Mote transition date is announced. Censor. I am a pretty frank, foul-mouthed person over voice chat and occasionally, even text. Therefore, I won’t expect others to watch their language. Allow harassment or bullying. Why this could ever happen on my server, I have no idea, but I’ve played online games enough to know that it might. Encourage piracy of the game. Please support its development! User Groups: Registration details/instructions are accessible through the /help menu in-game on Icosahedron. Groups will not be visible to anyone in-game, so the title is really not important. Only the permissions are important. I wanted to make them visible but I won't be able to change that until a future date. However, the Super Admins will always have a tag. Only active regulars will get VSAgent status after launch. [Visitor] A random anonymous user who logs in as a guest on Icosahedron will not be able to build (dig, modify) they are only able to fight creatures. [Probie] A user who logs in and self-registers will not be able to build either. [Agent] A user who has been validated by an Admin can kick visitors and probies. [VSAgent] Same as Agent but gets a reserved login slot and can move NPC’s and use explosives. [Director] - (Admin) tag on name indicates Super Admin permission. Current tentative schedule: TESTING - Basic exploration and construction, fighting, etc. No official events. THE MAP MAY BE RESET DURING THIS TIME. TBA Launch Schedule: Week 1: Exploration, introduction, allowing new players to learn more about co-op play, all planned functionality will be ready and launched on an untouched map. Week 2: Volunteer period: Depending on how much activity there really winds up being, I will consider adding 1-2 additional VSAgent helpers. Week 3: Weekly PVP Arena construction events begin! Architects will be drawn randomly starting this week from a signup sheet and given 5 days to plan and construct a PVP arena (or specially themed) World to be uploaded and fully appreciated during a weekend-long Global PVP event. Week 4: I will set a final date set for Hard Mode transition if it has not been implemented by this time. Backups & Rollbacks: Icosahedron's primary world map does/will have periodic (90 minute) automated backups in case of disasters. Every Friday night before I load the weekend event map, I will back up the world file for long term preservation. In the case of a significant (>1 week) rollback, I will provide the most recent "good" backup to members of the Steam group so they can download it and access the world file locally, so that anything they made that was destroyed by a rollback isn't lost permanently. Original post FINAL Edit: Spoilered everything as I don't want to edit or lose the old info. Please refer to the blog for current info. Also requested the topic lock.
