So it's been almost exactly one year to the day that I initially announced "shutting" War Worlds down. There was a lot of support for the idea of keeping it running, and I've tried to do that -- the donations I received at the time allowed me to keep War Worlds running for several months, but the time has come that I can no longer keep the servers up for much longer.
But rather than shutting down completely, I'm looking for someone to keep the fires burning and host the servers. Development of War Worlds has slowed down, but we've got a dedicated player base and it would be sad to see that go.
So if you're interested in hosting the War Worlds server, here's what's required:
- At least 2 CPUs
- 4GB RAM
- ~20GB of disk space (depending on how many local backups you want to store)
- The ability to run a custom Java server + cron jobs (basically that means we need a VPS)
The game needs a reasonably beefy server to keep all of the stars simulated, which is what as contributed most to the cost for me.
If you have a server which fits the bill available, please contact me and we can get started on the migration.
I'm basically going to run out of money to continue paying the bills in around a month, so we're going to need to find a solution fairly soon.
