Fresh New Hardware

Posted By: Vincent Sylvester
Posted On: 2017-05-04 01:16 AM

Hardware is a bit of a stretch in regards to our official regions, because they are now within the cloud; That magical thing slowly taking over the entire internet. The reason for the move was the trouble we have been seeing with Welcome specifically. We have been unable to pinpoint what exactly is wrong with the region, but with it being moved onto a fresh new machine we are hopeful the problems are solved. We will continue to monitor it and feel free to let us know if you experience any iss

As some people may have noticed with our stats fluxing, we freely admit this. We are currently doing heavy load balance testing we want to make sure our system is able to handle the load of several thousand regions. We have posted about this on our main blog for Zetamex Network. However, we wanted to post it here as well so that it is clear. They are actual regions being placed online, and used for load testing.

The transfer to the new server, named Jackal, went smoothly and ZetaWorlds is back up and running.

In addition to upgrading the hardware we have started testing a new money module on the regions Gloebits 1 and Gloebits 2. As the name suggest they are running the Gloebit module, which is similar to OMC, but features a much more streamlined process and easier to use interface. Gloebit will be a hypergrid enabled currency, currently Hyperica is also testing this module.

Fresh new hardware

ZetaWorlds will experience some momentary downtime on the 5th of February to complete our move to newer more powerful hardware. During the upgrade logins will be disabled to move over the grid database and asset server in a stale state, preventing potential dataloss. The move is estimated to take between 1 and 5 hours, if everything goes according to plan. Currently the upgrade is scheduled for 6am grid time. We hope you can excuse this momentary downtime for the benefits of newer more powerf

OMC Support and New Simulator Binaries

Posted On: 2016-01-01 05:02 PM

We are happy to announce that OMC is now in ZetaWorlds. This allows you to use money on your regions, this money is managed by VirWox, which adds a layer of security with each purchase needing to pass through a web page. What makes OMC our choice of currency is, that you must OPT-IN to it. This means if you do not wish to use it, you don't have to. If you choose to use it, just head over to Welcome and register at the giant spinning "V" by clicking on it and following the steps.

Mesh From Abroad Fixed

Posted By: Timothy Hoxley
Posted On: 2015-12-04 03:52 AM

We used to have an old issues where residents visiting other grids would have issues taking items back home, or even seeing mesh objects in other grids. We have since resolved this issue, you can now successfully visit other grids without missing scenery and bring back larger items from other grids.

The tech behind what happened was kinda silly on our part. We had fixed the packet size that can travel through our reverse proxy to our asset server to allow mesh on our grid, however t
