Sorry for the lack of updates, but I wanted to quickly say thank you to everyone who donated and participated in our charity event earlier in the month. It was fun playing with everyone on the server and appreciated the help! All of your donations went toward the Extra-Life charity and we contributed to the over $3,000 our team raised. That's pretty awesome, so again, thank you!
I haven't had much time to update the servers, but there hasn't been much changing on the CSGO front. No recent updates, no game breaking changes, no map updates, nothing. It's been overall really quiet. When things start to pick up again I will be making changes to the server. I'm still working on getting the 1v1 stats integrated to the forum so it's all in one place, but that's still up in the air.
Lastly on a personal note, I will be a bit all over the place over the next calendar year. My mom was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Cancer and my family is currently working hard to pull through that. My availability (if you haven't noticed already) will be very sporadic. I see no changes in the future of the community, so don't worry about it going offline or anything. Actually my income is very stable at the moment so if we're unable to get donations we should be good for the next year.
Hopefully I'll have some good news after my mom completes her chemo treatments in six months. Thanks for your support guys and don't forget to enjoy the servers!
Hey guys, if you're not in the game server then you're missing out.
Please come and join us on the ZE CSGO server for the Extra-Life Charity Event! Don't forget that all your donations to Bor3d Gaming will immediately go to the Extra-Life Chairty Foundation. Thanks for your support!
So, I've been working on a little something over the past few days and I'm finally done. I would like to announce that we have a Zombie Escape server now available for Counter-Strike: Source. I know I said I wasn't going to make one, but I figured...what the hell!
To connect to the server you can visit: zecss.bor3dgaming.com:27015
Pretty much all of the same stuff that you're used to on the CS:GO server is on the CS:S ZE server. Of course it just runs a bit better since CSGO is a pain in my ass. Don't get me wrong, we are still a CSGO community. This is really for those who want a chance to play some of the ported maps we have in their original state as the mapper intended.
Check out, it should be fun .
In prep for the big event November 5th and in celebration of Halloween, I've added some new maps or updated some. The list is below:
Any issues with the above maps, please let me know!
Been a while since I went through all of the servers and I've gone through and make a couple of significant changes throughout all of the servers. Let me break down what's changed:
- Joining our steam group will earn you 1 extra credit every 120 seconds. Be sure to join our steam group!
- CSGO TV has been added to all servers. You can record what's happening on the server by typing !record and !stoprecord when you're done.
- Fixed issue where zombies were unable to pick up in-game weapons (plugin conflict).
- Added no shake plugin so people can disable the shaking that happens. Type !noshake to disable shaking. Type it again to re-enable.
- Updated map: ze_A_E_S_T_H_E_T_I_C_v1_1
- Added map: ze_sunkentemple_v3_1
- Updated map: ze_artika_base_v1
- Updated map: ze_ffxiv_wanderers_palace_v4_10
- Updated map: ze_Pirates_Port_Royal_v5_2
- Updated map: ze_PKMN_Adventure_v6_3fix
- Updated the surf plugin to fix various bugs. Still has issues with TEXT colors.
- Re-adjusted map list and renamed maps to fix issues with download conflicts.
As always if you have any issues with any of these changes, please let me know.
- Fixed issue with duplicate knife rounds causing errors and high memory usage.
Taking a look at the donations over the past few months, I've been really pleased with everyone and your hard work. It's definitely taken a lot of strain off me ensuring the servers are up and running without interruption! As we move into the next cycle for donations, I wanted to point out that I'll be doing something a little different this month...
On November 5, I will be doing a 24-hour game-a-thon charity event with a few friends. I will be playing a variety of games with them from console to PC. Of course, this event will also coincide with a bG Event on Saturday night. I'll be posting more about that as we get closer to November. My hope is to get the bG servers extremely populated the night of the 5th and spread awareness around this charity event.
The charity, called Extra-Life, is a cool project that allows gamers to give back to help save the lives of children. The event works with Children's Miracle Network Hospitals and allows you to pick a hospital near you to support. I've chosen a hospital in my home state which will receive all the donations I collect. So in the month of October, I'll be directing ALL DONATIONS to Extra-Life.
A few days before the event I will PayPal all donations from the Bor3d Gaming Community to my Extra-Life page. The donations will be from the bG Community and I'll name all those who participated. While every month I always urge you guys to donate to keep bG up and running...this month I'm urging you to help save a child's life. This may be one of the more important donations we've ever done here at bG. If you want to be a part of something special, please be sure to donate!
If you wish to simply donate directly to my Extra-Life page, you can visit: John Lewis | http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=219942
Click the big blue "DONATE" button and go about selecting any amount you feel comfortable with.
Thanks for reading and I hope to see you all around on November 5th to help celebrate this event. I'll be posting the event later this evening .
So I've added a new plugin to the server that I customized a little myself . It's called the "Store Raffle" and the way it works is that it allows you to put in your own credits into the raffle for a chance to win the Jackpot. The raffle allows you to place between 10-1,000 of your own credits up. At the end of each round a winner will be chosen and given the total Jackpot amount. Pretty nice huh?
To use the raffle, simply type !raffle followed by the amount of credits you want to wager. For example:That will put up 500 of your own credits into the raffle. Of course, if you lose the raffle, it's gone! So be careful how much you wager .
Lastly for Surf I am piloting a new Map Chooser. This one is called "UMC" and it's a bit more complex and fancy than the one we are using. It will now display the surf map tiers and the type of map it is. Please let me know if you notice anything funky going on with it. If this is successful on Surf, I'll be using it in other servers as well.
You might have noticed that there is a new Resources tab in the navigation of the site. This is not a mistake, it's intentional. This section of the site is a place for you to post your own tutorials and map development projects. You can classify your tutorial in many different ways from Server Management to bG Server Gameplay. It's really up to you!
For you map makers out there, you can use bG as a way to organize your map development. If you're making a map in hopes of it being added to Bor3d Gaming one day, you can create a new map resource and document all of the important information about the map. You can also upload the map for others to test too.
This is a little and I'm sure we will be many different types of resources in the future as we think about it. If you have any suggestion for resource types, please post them.
It's been a while since 1v1 got some new map love, so I did some searching for cool new maps. You can see the list of maps I've added to the server below:
As always, please be sure to check these out and if you encounter any issues...let me know!
Never a dull moment. Here are some updated and new maps for you guys to try on ZE:
As always, if you have any issues with the above maps, please report them!
- Added ze_aepp_nano_grid2_b1_3
- Updated ze_ffxiv_wanderers_palace_v4_5z
