*** Generation 4!**

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9791791/xP/AllAbout1.png

[release]Welcome to xP! we started out in early may or june as a server for me and my friends (Iggy and Necrostatix) to make machinimas on together. The server then was unnamed and was passworded at all times. I later opened up the server to the public as “Xenoyia’s Playground - PHX3 Build”. This was Generation 1 of the server. I later had an argument with Iggy resulting in him blocking me (even though it was his fault :geno:) and I became the only administrator. The server got more and more popular, reaching rank 16 once. I opened up a forum and got quite a few great admins, namely Ascensive, Prinny, Armonius and Demosthenes (ac1dl3ak on FacePunch). A month passed and it was time for me to pay for the server. I completely forgot to save for this and the server went down. About a week later I rebought the server, with a new IP and… well… instability! generation 2 was the worst generation of xP. Advance Duplications were crashing the server, there was always a high ping and the server was always empty. I don’t even like to think about that… Now, a week ago I tried one last time with xP. This is generation 3 of xP// build, the current generation in which I hope to stay up for a long time. The server has a low ping for europeans and crashes once in a blue moon. This is most of the history of the server. We also have a Steam Group and a Forum.[/release]

[release]There is no downloading whatsoever, except for the occasional materials download for the admin system or a LUA cache file. xP// HATES downloading, so we do our best to remove anything which force downloads on the server. It is also the main reason we’re keeping to a base map. On the server, we have:

  • Phoenix-Storms 3 SVN
  • Wiremod SVN
  • Wiremod Unofficial Extras SVN
  • PAC 2 (Player Appearance Customizer)
  • Some Helpful Building STools such as Stacker, Weight, Unbreakable![/release]

It is usually 100ms+ for people in the USA to UK, vise versa.

I’ve had people from the US here before, with very little ping.

SERVER STRESS TEST:
[img_thumb]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/9791791/stresstest.png[/img_thumb]

  • Wheels spinning around while a heavy is thrusted around on a bike, the large event center is in the background. I’ve also spammed present gibs.

Ping depends on the player’s connection.
There can’t be an “average” for the ping.

You don’t know what your talking about. Ping has nothing to do with bandwidth it is all about location. Ping is the time it takes in milliseconds for machines to communicate with each other. So basically if the server is in UK and i am in USA i would get about 100-150ms.

I even joined to prove it.

Hmm… I’ve had many US players who have had decent pings. Maybe it’s your connection? I’ve removed the average ping though, just in case.

I did not stay too long but it is on my favorites now. I also explained that connection has nothing to do with ping :confused:

I think its more to do with distance, as hack said.
But dont worry, because its not your fault. Just maybe dont advertise low pings because thats not true for everyone :stuck_out_tongue:

I won’t. Thanks :slight_smile:

I would say this is a good server but he disabled E2, which is one of my favorite things to do in build. His reason was someone kept using it to crash the server. If that was the case why not just ban him and not punish everyone?

Will remember that, thanks.

E2 takes all the fun and work out of building; and it’s used for awful laggy stuff like Drunk Combine as well… disabling it fixes that.

Updated the OP, it is now sexy.

OOPS! didn’t mean to bump, thought it would automerge :ohdear:

There is a script that blocks drunken combine. Also you must not even know how to use E2 is you say “E2 takes all the fun and work out of building.”

E2 is what can make your building actually useful and fun. Disabling E2 keeps the smart people and the minges away. Now who does that leave in the server, just you.

Go to another build server then?

Well i am only trying to help.

It depends on what you use it for. E2 can actually be really helpful and lagless if you know how to use it.
E2 also requires skill, just like everything else.

Nice advertisement. Looks like you put effort into this advertisement. Will join soon.

No E2???

Awesome, will join this sooner.

Sorry about the crash, the server host restarted it due to ‘lag issues’. Going to complain…
