Hey everyone and today I'd like to announce the latest project which is
The OPPrison-Network, a network within a network,
The OPPrison-Network is basically 3 prisons linked together by inventory, economy, rank, and bans. Here is the 3 prisons in mind.
They are designed to split the load that OPPrison generates across 3 servers for overall better performance and stability. Each OPPrison will have 300 slots while the OPPrison-Plots will have 600 slots. The plots server will have everyones plots as they are created while the other prison servers will have the mines that people will mine at.
Now here is what else will change
- There will be a global chat and a local chat (Global will not mean multi server chat)
- Donators will be able to join full servers
- Higher view distance on all opprisons except opprison-plots
- Gangs will be added
- General bug fixes on ranks
- Prestige 1-10 will be released
- PlotMines will be slowly phased back in
Why are we doing this
OPPrison currently hits 300+ players now during peak hours and is constantly growing. Currently the server runs at half speed with 300+ players which results in a terrible experience overall and also results in massive lag spikes whenever OPPrison goes under more load. We can't grow like this, it will only get worse as we get larger in player counts. So we are fixing it now before it gets any worse.
Will there be a reset
Basically, it is most likely this will be a full reset of OPPrison. I will try my best however to preserve ranks, donator ranks, inventories, and plots. However I can't guarantee that they will be there after the OPPrison-Network is released. Things like money and bans will not be kept no matter what I do while we do the transition OPPrison into a network. Playervaults will be replaced by another plugin as well most likely.
The transition to the OPPrison-Network starts on 8/31/2014 at 11:59PM EDT. We estimate around 5-8 hours of downtime. If you have any questions or concerns, hit me up on the teamspeak @ ts3.reactivemc.com whenever I'm online or send me a message on twitter @reactivemc would be the twitter username
