I rarely put out these threads for the server-related updates, but due to one of the updates being fairly important, here I go. Some of these updates, specifically cross-server updates won't be implemented till the next the reboot
The Cross-Server Plugin has seen some revisions(we have a custom plugin for handling this). The plugin is responsible for anything that communicates between servers, such as /find and /msg.
Scheduled Server Restarts were made more consistent and somewhat refined. I was on a binge of writing bash scripts, which is responsible for a few of these updates.
- The messages sent are more custom
- On all server restarts, the plugin that sends the players to Hub is now hooked into the network software rather than spamming the command, "/hub", for all of the players
- When all of the players are sent to Hub, it won't kick a majority of them due to "Too many joining". That issue is now fixed.
- Scheduled reboots are now exactly timed to be at 3:30 PST, or 6:30 EST (AM)
Per-server Domains, for example, skyblock.parkourcraft.com, will all now send you to Hub.
The Server List MOTD has been made easier for us to edit. The issue before was that to edit the server's MOTD I needed to go to every proxy(location), and edit each one individually. We now have software that keeps every proxy up to date automatically.
Security has also been beefed up a bit. Won't get into specifics, but things are looking pretty good.
