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 November, 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
- Added ze_PKMN_Adventure_v6_1
So I decided to get us a new logo and I think it looks really awesome. Don't ask me what the icon means, it has no meaning. Just something unique to really identify your community against others aside from our initials. I'll be posting the logo as a map vector to use to future map makers as soon as I get a hold of @Blue Dragon.
In addition to the new logo, I've also created a YouTube Channel for us. You can visit it at: Bor3d Gaming | https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKLezOZImHUwQngtrt00c3w
I'm hoping to get some video coordinators to take care of adding cool video content in-game. If anyone wants to step up and contribute, please let me know. The channel URL is nothing special yet because we haven't had the account long enough and need at least 100 subscribers. So please subscribe if you have the time!
I'm back from vacation and I don't have any souvenirs for you, but I do have some Zombie Escape updates!
That's what I have so far, so please let me know if stuff is broken
- !guns menu has been updated so that it only gives weapons that are unrestricted. You should no longer get blank weapons.
- Updated map ze_A_E_S_T_H_E_T_I_C_v1
- Updated map ze_ffxiv_wanderers_palace_v4_4
- Added map ze_gris_v1_9_3
- Updated map ze_jurassicpark_evolved_v4
- Updated map ze_lolxd_final
I come bearing the gift of new maps. I'll be on vacation from Thursday until Tuesday so I figured I would drop off some new maps I procured via the web. Here's what's been added:
As always, test out the maps and report any problems you encounter. Thanks all and enjoy!
- Added ze_artika_base_a3 (crashes the server)
- Added ze_ffxiv_wanderers_palace_v3_9
- Added ze_lolxd_v2_3_fix
- Added ze_rizomata_a30f
- Added ze_roof_adventure_p7
Just a handful of new changes for the Zombie Escape server that I wanted to make you all aware of:
I've added a new plugin to the server which required some new zombie models. So you may have a bunch of models to download when first join, but it shouldn't take too long with fast downloads. The plugin basically enables you to decapitate zombies. When a zombies health has reached 2,000 or lower the model will change to the decapitated version and a head will drop of the zombie. It's pretty cool.
- Added the updated version of ze_hidden_temple_v2_1
- Added the new map ze_A_E_S_T_H_E_T_I_C
- Set default weapons for everyone on connect (p90 and elite).
The plugin also adds a little more gore and the models added are also much better than the old ones. They have proper rigging so hats and masks should work.
This is one of a handful of site customization's we will be making over the next few months. Surf Stats is an integrated display of surf statistics on the Easy Surf server.
Check it out: Surf Stats | Bor3d Gaming | http://www.bor3dgaming.com/surf-stats/
You can see the top 20 players in our server. You can also view the most recent top map completion times. Also you can view the most recent 250 map completions. If you're registered on the forum then you're stats will be associated with your account. Your profile will now show a new "Surf Stats" tab that shows all of your completions to date.
Check it out and let me know if you find any bugs. This is a custom coded add-on made for our community. Cost a pretty penny so I hope you enjoy!
