About The Future

Hey all,

Just wanted to take a few moments to post about what changes we can expect in the future.

I have been working on the test game, in order to fully develop what I want from other planets, and how interstellar travel will eventually work. This excites me because it means that Away Missions will be possible and will allow for exciting and different roleplay to occur, once the game is where I believe it needs to be to be operable and ready.

I have also been working on the shuttles and turbolifts, to get everything where I want it, and where I imagine the game can and should be. For now, however, there is still for me to do. I expect that it will all take some time to perfect, simply because I am doing the majority of the work by myself, along with working full time at my job, and as such this takes a significant amount of work to progress and get where I want it to be.

Thanks for the patience,

Website Issues

Hey all,

There were some issues with the webserver today. I believe I tracked down the cause and have solved it, but should it happen again, please let me know. In any case, should anyone have any issues, please email me about it or contact me on the game via page or @mail in-game.


Gameserver Updates

Hello all,

Some updates have been applied to the gameserver, which NewHopeMUSH runs on, and all updates were applied without a shutdown. There should be no interruption to anything, and the game remained running while the updates were applied.

In any case, if you do see anything let me know, but everything appears to be working properly.

Thank you,

Sick Days

This week, I haven’t done much other then getting the +bio command to show where people are properly, along with fixing some general background-issues with security (such as allowing people into certain rooms, etc). This is mainly due to me not feeling to well, and taking more naps this week than normal, since I’ve been feeling under the weather and have been tired.

Thankfully, I can feel myself getting better, and the cold leaving my system as the week goes on. In any case, this week has been more of a rest time than anything else. Hopefully, by next week, I will feel more like myself.

Thanks for your patience,

Game Back Online

Hey all,

The server was back up within a few minutes, and the game is now back online. My apologies for the game being down for so long, but I was unable to restart it until just now, due to being at work earlier when the server was restarted.

In any case, thanks for your patience and understanding, while everything was being done and during the downtime.

Jeffrey. 🙂

Those We Love

Hey all,

This weekend has made me think about some things. There are many things I am grateful for, my family and friends chief among them.

It is weekends like this past one that make me consider how thankful we should all be for our lives and our friends and family that surround and take part in our life.

If we learn nothing else from life, and the lives of those around us, may we learn to enjoy our lives and to partake in the joy of being surrounded by those we love.


Upcoming Server Reboot

Due to security concerns, our host server will be applying updates. These security update are mandatory and will require downtime while the updates are applied.

I will be shutting down the game at 11:30PM UTC on March 3rd, 2015 and the website will be unresponsive about a half hour later.

EDIT: For those of you who read the unedited post, the game will be down for longer due to the update being done while I will be working. The game will be shutdown around 6:30PM ET and will be restarted around 11:30PM, barring any issues, due to the fact that I will be at work and unable to restart the game immediately following the updates. My apologies.

Thank you for understanding,

Leonard Nimoy

Our condolences to the family, friends, and colleagues of Leonard Nimoy. He touched many and shared his life and experiences with anyone who was near.

He was a giving individual and will be missed by all who knew him, along with those whose lives he touched through his acting, his photographs, and his amazing life.

To quote Mr. Nimoy himself,

“I am not Spock, but given the choice, if I had to be someone else, I would be Spock. If someone said, ‘You can have the choice of being any other character ever played,’ I would choose Spock. I like him. I admire him. I respect him” – Leonard Nimoy.
