Giving Thanks & Talking Server Specifications

To start, we have finally managed to get our hands on the new dedicated server. The server costs $123 USD per month, so we can definitely use all the support we can get on our Patreon. We couldn't have gotten this server without the help of our patrons and especially Razer for contributing so much to this community. This server runs with two Intel Xeon CPU E3-1241 v3 processors, both quad-core, meaning we have 8 cores at our disposal. Our server has 32 GB of memory available and a dedicated, unmetered 1Gbps network port. The port is unshared, so our players will have the best network connectivity to our game servers. Our server is currently being hosted inside a Cogent Communications data center located in Buffalo, New York.

We not only provide quality hardware and networking for our game servers, but we also have a XenForo forum for all of our players to register on and give us feedback, report rule violations, talk to our staff or give us suggestions for more game servers or features we can implement in our community. We do our utmost to communicate with our players so they may have the best experience possible in any gaming community. We pride ourselves on professionalism but we can also be fun. If you follow the guidelines, we'll all get along great. Violate the rules and we enforce them with swift and punishment.

Game Server Details

Now, onto the details of our game servers that we currently have as well as our plans for future game servers. As of right now we have a SCP: Secret Laboratory game server as well as a Rust game server. As of typing this, I'm also currently working on bringing a Minecraft server into the community. Later down the road we're planning to have a Garry's Mod server and potentially a DayZ Standalone game server. If you have any suggestions that you want to give us for other games to host servers for or maybe you want to suggest plugins or mods to implement into the servers we currently run, you may do so on the forums or our Discord server. Our SCP: Secret Laboratory has plenty of plugins to help fix bugs as well as implement some other neat features. Our Rust server has plugins that are mostly for managing and monitoring the server. For our Rust server, we're mostly aiming for a vanilla experience since players enjoy vanilla Rust servers. Our Minecraft server will start off as vanilla, but later I intend to take suggestions from players on what plugins they'd like to see added to the Minecraft server. As for the Garry's Mod server, we haven't quite made a decision on what game mode we want to focus on. The main ones we have in mind are Murder, Death Run, DarkRP or Prop Hunt. Of course, we can run multiple Garry's Mod servers, each with its own game mode, which we may end up doing.

Staff Opportunities & Community Partnerships

As we release more game servers, we'll open staff applications so that you may apply to volunteer your time to help us keep our servers in line and enforce the community and server-specific guidelines. Very soon we're going to open applications again, so look out for that. We're also open to opportunities to partner with other communities to help both of our communities to grow. For partnership opportunities, you may contact Razer. He's currently in charge of partnerships until we find a dedicated partner manager.
