Today marks 3 years since the first forum post here On our first birthday we celebrated with a Minecraft challenge server. Second year we moved to a Terasology server event with the new multiplayer. This year we welcome the OreSpawn mod with a birthday bash! TheyCallMeDanger (author of OreSpawn) is looking for a new home away from home after the recent Minecraft events, and coincidentally timed reaching out to us right before our birthday. So it only seems right to get together and celebrate by checking out OreSpawn in its original home while talking about developing for Terasology and how we can port over all the things. So next weekend (October 4th and 5th) we'll set up one or multiple OreSpawn Minecraft servers and play around together. Goal is to warm up Saturday with some informal play, maybe mostly toward the evening US time / somewhat late Euro time. Mainly this is practice, headcount approximation, and setup to make sure everything works for those interested in playing. Plus assorted discussion. Then early Sunday US time / afternoon Euro time we'll start a server vs. server race to the King! Staff from both sides will be present including myself and TheyCallMeDanger, at some times at least. Depending on attendance we'll run 1-5 servers or maybe even more. If we finish early (or want to play around Saturday) we might start up a Terasology server to play with too, but after the major recent refactoring work we might need to restabilize a bit first Plan is to start Saturday at or after the usual Terasology office hours (10 am EDT / 4 pm CEST). I will likely be off for most the afternoon as that day also happens to be my birthday and I may be geeking out with local board gaming nerds to mark that Then after the later office hours session (5 pm EDT / 11 pm CEST) I'll be back and most likely this is when Danger will be able to make it too Saturday. Around the same (early) time Sunday we'll start up for real with an appropriate amount of servers to handle the race to the king. The winning server wins ... uh, I dunno, nothing really! But myself and Danger will be around more on this day and hopefully lots of staff too. We will coordinate on IRC and maybe do some streaming / voice chat and have fun We'll probably also do some server testing and such this coming weekend, starting tomorrow. Yay weekends!
