Still alive

March 16, 2017, 08:42:26 pm

I know there's sadly not much going on here and the last update was almost a year ago, time really flies, but I'll point out some recent changes and news anyway.
I've personally been very busy with work and stuff (excuses, I know!) so I haven't had time to do some much needed maintenance of the status page, until now.

I'm also thinking of updating the Play FOnline launcher, to make it possible to download, install and play all the current servers. Would also appreciate any feedback about it, if you are using it or have used it in the past.

Ok, let's cut to the chase, here's some updates:

Status page

The status page has been updated with the following things:
- Added Battlegrounds.
- Modified the entry for FOnline Forever to new host and marked it as open. Make sure you check it out!
- Marked Teleport and Goon Haven as closed. If this is not correct and they have changed IP/port, I'd like to know.

If you have more suggestions for the status page, please reach out to me or reply to this thread and I'll make sure to add/correct stuff.



Projects

FOnline Forever
Forever was started by Ravenis and in his own words it started as a basic modification of the released 2238 sources, almost 3 years ago:

Hello :)
Yes, I know there is couple very advanced mods based on 2238 source, but I decided to start making not so modified mod.
Since you all need to admit ol' good 2238 was fun until it lasted.

So I'm starting new server. It's basicly default FO 2238 at the beginning.
Some minor changes are done already, and future plans includes example these things:

-Craftable skill implants, example head implant that rises your Small Guns skill by 10%. (implants have "tier" levels, so tier 1 is +10% and tier 2 is 20% and so on...)
-More craftable items with some special features. (About these items we can talk at the IRC channel)
-More missions/quests. (Always nice to have more solo material too)

I'm sure there's been a lot of progress since then, I haven't personally tried it but if you've missed it I suggest you check it out!
It received a large updated just a week ago.
