In light of recent spam registrations I've decided to change the permissions system a bit and require that you have a Steam Account in order to post on the forums. If you have not authenticated your account with Steam, please be sure to do so otherwise you will not be able to post on the forums, chatbox or peoples profiles.
If you're having issues after this change, please let me know!
A few of you should notice that your status has now changed. You should be marked for Admin Eligibility! What does this mean? Well it means that you can now access the admin submission form and submit your application. If you have any issues with attempting to fill out and submit the form, please let me know.
If you're interested in becoming an admin as well, be sure to visit: Server Admin | Bor3d Gaming | http://www.bor3dgaming.com/help/server-admin/
That page will explain all the criteria you need to meet in order to become an admin. Thanks for all your support!
Some suggestions have made their way to me via @Fruit so I've made some adjustments to the Zombie Escape Server:
I also added a new map to the server called ze_jurassicpark_evolved. It's a remake of the original Jurrasic Park map from the old CS:S days. It's been rebuilt and modified so it could be fun to test out.
- Increase the ammo clip size for M4's and AK's from 30 to 45.
- Decreased the ammo clip size for the Negev from 150 to 125.
- Decreased the freeze grenade radius by half.
Let me know how these changes have gone.
Sorry for the lack of updates folks, but I've gone through and made sure all the servers are updated and running optimally. In addition I've updated a handful of maps on the Zombie Escape server which should be fun:
They are all ready to go, let me know if you find any issues. I've also updated SourceMod on ZE to fix a weird infection bug.
It took a little bit of working and YouTube tutorial watching, but I was able to set us up with a TeamSpeak server. It's currently up and running with a couple of cool features.
Simply connect to that address (no port needed) and you will be able to join the TeamSpeak server. Before you do that though, if you're a registered forum member then you should sync your account!
What this will do is give you the necessary permissions you need to enter channels you should have access to automatically. For example if you're a donor, then you'll have access to the Donor channel. Sweet huh? I love plugins!
Be sure to check that out and you can also see who's in the server by visiting: http://www.bor3dgaming.com/account/teamspeak
Just a notice that at 2:00 AM both the web server and game servers will be going offline. I am moving the web hosting platform to a new stack and thus it has to have some downtime to resync. Since the servers use the MySQL database attached to our web server, I'll be taking down as well. It should be back up and running by tomorrow morning at the latest. I'll reply once this is all sorted out.
As you know we've been using discord as our voice communication tool for a while, but doesn't seem like many people use it. I am curious if that's because they don't need it or because it's Discord and not TeamSpeak. So I opened up this community poll to hear your voices on the matter. I'm open to switching to TS3 if we get the support for it, otherwise it wouldn't make sense to changes.
Let me know what you think!
Added a new plugin to the surf server that will give you store credits for completing surf maps. It will give you 50 credits for the first time you beat a map and then 10 credits every additional time. So keep working hard to complete those surf maps, they'll be worth it!
It can't be easy looking at the store and seeing those crazy high prices huh? What were we thinking, right? Well, if you want to make a butt load of credits quickly and easily then there is a sure fire way to do that. Register on the forums!
Yup, it's that simple. If you take the two minutes to register for a forum account and authenticate your account with, you'll be given 200 credits the next time you join any of our servers! You can easily authenticate your account by visiting: http://www.bor3dgaming.com/account/external-accounts
Simply login with your Steam credentials and your Steam ID will be associated to your forum account. This is how we know it's you who deserves the credits.
Admins, if someone claims they didn't get the credits, have them report it on the forums. More than likely it was user error and we'll need to debug. Otherwise, do not give anyone the 200 credits on your own.
Thanks all for continuing to support Bor3d Gaming!
