if it makes anyone feel better im apparently stuck floating in midair with my friends unable to reach me after my game crashed when the server last restarted and my client force updated. im most likely going to die of fall damage when i log back into the game either that or im going to lose everything i had on my body. (i didnt get any notifications about the server restarting) so im now locked out of the game not knowing what will happen to me or my freshly tamed spino

Locked out over 12 hours now. Munki, this update schedule thing will kill this server man.

For the love of god, please just set the server to auto update

Seriously, we need to vote to have the server auto update. We should not be dependent on Munki to get around to updating the server when he can (who would want to work on weekends???) so we can play.

Anyone agree? Anyone know how frequent updates are released these days?

P.S: Is it possible to have an auto update schedule, say once per day at a set time (like the reboot), instead of immediately when new updates are released? This might give a balance between interrupting playing vs not be able to play...

Sorry guys for the downtime, if you have issues PM me on the forums so i am notified by email, posting messaging on the forum wont get an immediate response.

Server has now been updated


Server doesnt auto update as soon as a patch is released (which is good if there are bugs and the server is wiped), there is no ability to do that, i have to save, stop then update, then start the server manually.
I can do a schedule update, but people have had major roll back issues when i do that, and it will run regardless if there is an update or not, interfering with gameplay.

I understand people play at different schedules, this is the first time i have missed a release, and i apologise. But please PM me and i will log right in and do it immediately, i cant keep refreshing the steam forums all day to know when the next release is (and they constantly change the release times), hence the schedule.
For emergencies such as server going down email: drunkmunki[at]gamingalliance.net
