Server reboot this evening

The server machine behind most of the OpenTTD servers and this website (and the forum) has been constantly running for 1254 days. Even for Linux running for almost 3 and a half year is a long time and the machine is acting weird and unstable right now, which tells me it's in desperate need of a reboot.


If that wasn't enough bad news, here's more:
  • I will do the reboot this evening (in a few hours from now) without waiting for OpenTTD games to end prior to that
  • Since the machine is not behaving normally and hasn't been rebooted for such a long time nobody knows what will happen if it reboots, it might be that it doesn't even come back online
  • As complicated troubleshooting might be necessary to get everything back online while I also got other things to do I can give no ETA when the servers will be back online. Could be hours, could be days, could be weeks.
  • I don't even know whether the problems with stability and performance will be solved just by rebooting. But before I haven't done the reboot I won't know whether the long runtime of the machine is the only problem.

Sorry for that, but remember this is a privately run project, kept alive by people volunteering their free time and paid from our private pockets.

While the server is down, this website, our IRC chat and the forums will be down too. If you want to contact as or get informed about the server status during that time get Discord and join the n-ice.org OpenTTD Discord server.

Time goal

I have been programmed a game mode called time goal. For testing purpose server x4 (company value goal) and x5 (city builder) have been started. 

Transferring points to the database are disabled currently. Members will get a reward for every game. Be patient I will do it on occassion.
