As cubeengine.com has been DDOSed since
Sunday 6th of October 2013 Saturday 18th of April 2014, the master server of Sauerbraten and Tesseract are both offline, as well as the website of Cube Engine (2).
As there currently isn't any way for (new) players to report bugs or reveal their thoughts about Cube Engine (2), the forum of Quadropolis is temporary meant for such things as well (it actually always has been that, but rather served as a second try for players next to the forum of Sauerbraten).
Connecting to public servers shouldn't be a problem, but new hosted servers probably won't work (as they won't be assigned).
If you need any information about Cube Engine (2), your Sauerbraten directory should contain a folder called docs which has all pages of the website (except the forum of course).
There is no specific date of when cubeengine.com will be back online again.
Spread the word across the community.
For those looking to download the development version of Sauerbraten, you can find the project here on SourceForge.
This is the direct link to use if you want to check out:
Note: The SVN project version is now 1.7, and older clients may be unable to update/check-out!
According to the last email I've send all admins/moderators, I'm planning to let every admin or moderator choose a certain service to focus on.
The reason for this is as Quadropolis is being maintained by only 2 á 3 persons, while a lot of ideas, suggestions and things which actually were once planned to do are being pushed further towards another date.
As this situation won't last forever (admins/moderators tend to 'burn up' after a certain period of high activity and leave Quadropolis for good or only appear about once each month), I'm trying to get the team of admins and moderators more focused on certain goals (which can't be reached in the way it goes around like now).
As a lot of admins and moderators didn't reply to this Forum Topic, neither to any email I've send about this, I've decided to give the public the chance to rise up as a worthy admin or moderator (which greatly depends on the task, your skill and quite a bit on your past).
As it eventually is the meaning to get a proper running Quadropolis with a team of dedicated and reliable admins/moderators (towards each other), I've listed certain 'key-ranks':
- Website Host
I have implemented a change in the submit content node.
There is a new input called User Ability, where an author may mark their content as one of four levels.
These levels, and the new field are to better display a mapper's skill.
The higher level, the more critical reviews should be.
I put this change into place using the content prepared by Suicizer, who said Eihrul helped him out a bit with the initial idea.
Perhaps another Admin, Raz or Quin, could help me out with writing about this.
Finally, this is supposed to make constructive comments easier to gear towards the creator of the node, so that they will understand what you're suggesting or critiquing. Thank you.
