Updates? What updates? Do you think mars needs to make changes or upgrades? It looks like he is doing pretty good as is right?
~Peace~

Yup, updated, Mars asked some small changes, including never seen On-Line Monster Shadow, Warlord firing with a better visible projectile and smoke, no errors at BruteProjectiles, a better visibility of Slith Projectiles (you will see them not only get some hits appeared from nowhere), Skaarjs killed will deliver their weapon to player as reward (non-bugged in 99% of cases). Some Berserkers won't stay grouped at player's presence, will adopt the right hate and will hunt player together with other monsters, etc.

Of course, I won't bet everything will work as I expected since Epic have errors in ScriptedPawn code but I tweaked some variables to increase their hunt efficiency.
Some teamkillers players will suffer a Heart-Attack if they kill a friend, etc.

Monsters received my instructions:
Hunt together with other monsters to kill all players joined.

I gotta admit, Epowered Monster module can make them insane.

Someone talked about StrongMonsters - is a joke - Ask Mars about StrongMonsters. Was too hard using it and the server is now more close to normality.

Randomly entered in server I can confirm good working conditions, anyway I'll build a small list for future small "improvements".

Very good!
I see your Netherlands server is one of the top servers in the world now!

Um, I did some fixes for a good game (I think is place even for more small changes, but all small changes throwed together can make the game better), or at least I tried a little different technology. I don't understant why is so important a Top Server - such a server is a target for different attacks. Mr. Mars can you tell us some ugly things ?

So, If I climb my server to aprox 200 place - I ask provider to change IP - I don't want any top by example. My target is a better MH not a Top, so I keep looking for small or anoying things to be solved.

Good, for a while I'll take a small break, I want to solve other problem which is pissing me off, in my server happens rarely but happens. If Mars will confirm this in Linux Server too I'll start looking for a fix. What is about ? I won't tell you. Guess why ! Everybody can read this topic and will try all kind of things to hit the party. So, do not expect me to post small flaws, :P, BTW, is not Engine, is A.I. I'm a bit bored, I want to rest a while. But if will be reported a problem, I'll develop other things.

Good philosophy Nelsona!
A good way of looking at it - and a wise way too I suspect.

I was just noting how well his server was doing.

Wise or not depends on options, I can make a joke (a real one) but without names here.

I saw a server runing for months almost empty daily. Some good rank 8xx or even better 9xx :D. I guess was the best, a true protection that must be mentioned in UT history. Any attempt to contact server was succesfull until a point: Downloading files - Woow everything was OK until to decompress downloaded bullshits - a nasty error and Bang, client crashed. I guess is one of the best protection ever seen, nobody can touch it because is crashing his/her client game :P. Runing empty, the server is always secured, nothing can happen due to client causes, is just so nice, so safe and so quiet.

NOW, leaving jokes, sometimes admin has the duty to check-test his/her server using a normal clean client without files or cache. If everything is OK will see some visitors, if not, don't ask why nobody is never joining. And exists more such "works" usually "good ranks" 500 to 800, not the place 10th with crashes and headaches = bad rank :P.
