Dear HWS RE Community,
Some Veterans from EU and NA remember this Event but if you are new, let me give you an impression from our EU/NA Photo Shooting here:
The consquence is clear: we want to make a Photo Shooting also for HWS RE! Can we get more than 93 players?
Saturday 20:00 / 8PM (server time. Type ingame cb:time)
It’s an event and you get teleported to ECC automatically. That means you only have to keep in mind to be not inside a cockpit shortly before 20:00/8PM.
Starting at 18:00/6PM you can join the event queue with the command
Once the event started, we wait a bit if anyone follows the invitation. Then we make the photoshooting in front of the EGS HQ.
To pimp the photo, equip your Survival Tool and choose one of the 3 Laser colors (red, green, blue).
After the shooting all participants have to swim to a pre defined zone to trigger the end and reward.
The more players join the Photo Shooting, the bigger the reward!
Per player on the photo everyone get 10 Origin XP and 10 000 credits!
So if we get 150 player on the Photo everyone get 1500 Origin XP and 1 500 000 credits!
Additionally every participant gets 1 Alien Core.
Disclaimer: No dress code! No ships! No Photo bombing! Grab some food with you, so you don’t starve. ECC is a breathable planet. After the event you get teleported back where you came from.
Since HWS+ EU and HWS RE can never ever run both on the same hardware, I bought a new dedicated third machine for HWS RE alone.
I’m currently setting it up and once Jascha is ready end of the week, we plan to do the server switch at Saturday 10AM.
Till then you MUST spawn all of your ready to spawn blueprints out from your BP Factory (F2)! If you don’t they will be gone and we can’t restore them anymore!
I repeat: start to spawn ALL of your “ready to spawn blueprints” out of your BP Factory now!
Apart from that you should notice no difference, we migrate the backup to the new machine. You only have to search for HWS RE in the Lobby again (new IP address)
- AMD Epyc 7502P | 32c / 64t | 2.5GHz / 3.35GHz
- 320 GB RAM DDR4 ECC
- 2TB NVMe SSD Datacenter Edition
- 1 Gbit/s
- Cost: 253,47€ per month
Additional 3036€ per year is quite a burden but I hope with the upcoming HWS+ release it will equal it out and new HWS Patrons are always welcome! I really appreciate your support to keep HWS up and running for free, for everyone!
That being said, I hope for a good server transition, a great Photo Shooting and a prepared future of HWS to make everyone happy with their preferred Empyrion Scenario.
Your HWS Team
