Server Machines

Eaglefire Server Machine

  • x1 Ryzen 5 1600 (3.6GHz, 6 Core, 12 Thread)
  • x1 Stock CPU Cooler
  • 2x8GB's of RAM (DDR4 2400MHz)
  • x1 1TB Hard Drive (Seagate Barracuda)
  • x1 500GB of Storage (Used for Backups)
  • Asrock B350 Motherboard
  • Hosted, and Upkept by Rain
  • Runs All Eaglefire servers and RoyalArms Factions

Future Roadmap for Eaglefire Servers -

  • 120$ // 960 EVO 250GB m.2 SSD to make server startups faster, backups faster, overall more server responsiveness
  • ? // Switch to Ethernet instead of Wifi
  • ????$ // Make another machine using AMD's ThreadRipper 1900x Ryzen1 CPU /w 64GB's of RAM - This would definitely expand the amount of servers we could run but would also definitely cost a fortune. We will plan this to be the next Eaglefire machine and will be looked into when RAM prices drop
  • ????$ // Upgrade the above mentioned machine to have 128GB's of RAM and a ThreadRipper 1950x
  • ????$ // The above mentioned machine would have 4 PCIe x16 slots. It would be a waste not to try and mine crypto with some GPU's. Will consider this when GPU prices drop again

General

  • Get the help of small community YouTubers to advertise and promote our servers?
  • Simplify the host process
      • Require TeamViewer as a first-time setup rather than a regularly used program
        • Some kind of control panel would need to be setup in order to save, stop, restart, and update servers. As well as something to log everything in-game (such as commands, chatlogs, etc to prevent abuse) and would need to work for all games the franchise hosts (Unturned, Minecraft, Rust, so on)
      • Figure a solution to Dynamic IP's
  • General Staff Positions / Help
    • Someone to validate donation transactions and give people their donator rank in-game and in discord
    • An RASF representative for recruiting hosters, explaining the franchise, and hiring new staff
    • A sort of co-owner to manage the other hosters aswell as having extensive knowledge of hosting
    • At least 1 moderator per server
    • Need to promote trusted people to Head Mod - which then head mods would be in charge of moderating and over-watching lower mods as well
    • Someone to dictate what upgrades hoster PC's should get / where funds should go

Unturned

  • Prep for 4.0
    • Archive 3.0 server files for the public to take / use
    • Quickly and swiftly learn to create 4.0 servers to get a head start in the 4.0 hosting scene
    • Do some benchmarks with 4.0 server hosting to fully understand how much more efficient / optimized 4.0 hosting is compared to 3.0 to fully know how many servers we can run

Minecraft

  • Hire peoples to help develop the servers
    • Builders
    • Plugin Creators
    • Experienced Moderators
  • Work on auto announcements
    • Add more auto announcements
  • Add more splash text to server on serverlist
  • Find a way to add written books to kits
  • Find a way to automate caravans
    • Currently we need to do almost everything manually, including copy/pasting the ship, putting the airdrop crates down, announcing the coords to the caravan, etc
    • Find a way to randomly select a coordinate on the map
    • Maybe get someone to help make a plugin for it? Perhaps? Maybe? Maybe not? We're not coders you know... -.-
  • Work on possibly adding more content for donators
    • Fix up all donator perks / permissions / commands
  • Work on getting the "North Side" of the city complete so we can release "Alexandria 1.0"
  • Work on some way to have chests random spawn and despawn with randomized loot in the abandoned city
  • Work on solving the multi-server dilemma (bungeecord shit, etc)
  • Moderation and Staff
    • Fully work out and clean up staff ranks, roles, etc
    • Work on tactics for catching hackers, etc.
    • Make an actual "builder" role, instead of giving non-trustworthy people OP

Rust

  • Learn the basics
  • Benchmark to understand how many resources are needed
  • Considering making two servers
    • Vanilla
    • 3x Server

Mount and Blade Bannerlord

  • Find out if you need to buy the game in order to run a server
  • Benchmark to understand how many resources are needed

Halo Online

  • Progress halted, as Halo Online was sent a C&D order by Bungie, Microsoft Studios, 343 Industries
