I will agree that security bombs are essentially bericade bombs, but I believe I told that to Ivan myself. , warp boxes, they're, if anything, good to sell. if you run around for like 5 minutes, you'll find plenty of them. but if you want a hell load of them, well,there you go. as for the ultra potion, still not exactly sure if I agree with it. as for a store on an FPS, if Sam doesn't update STW, and it dies, who knows, redspot could potentially follow wink

Guys: The store is a totally optional thing. If you don't find it worth it, then just don't use it. I see no reason for those bad comments about the store.
It's interesting to see how Ivan keep saying bad things about other developers games. I don't think that will make his status of a developer better. Thank you for a good laugh while enjoying a cup of coffee before going to work. I wish you all an awesome day.

@slj so you're saying that I have to talk good about every developer, and since we're devs we don't have a right to post our own oppinions about games they make? I love redspot, best game ver made! STW...its this cool realistic game? Oh man, I love AAC, its the best game ver!

I wish we could stop comparing tk and redspot left and right and just let them coexist. Every feature other than the base map engine, which he did get sam's permission and pay him for, is hand coded by us. The rs jet code I believe used variables in the player class, my vehicle code uses a massively complicated object structure which ivan hardly understands because I just sat down and put this intricate system together in like 3 days. The time that he did have the rs source, it didn't have remguns. And for whoever thought warp boxes were only if you buy them, dude, you can walk around and pick up like 10 in 5 minutes. I am a strong supporter of balance, and I do as best I can, even me, when I may have 50k health and max shields, can be killed. Ivan gets owned all the time. I just want peace between everybody here. I am not trying to compete with redspot. I know it is a much more complex and well put together game, and I have to give sam credit for the wonderful thing he has made with his bare hands, and I know carter, and I do like that he is on the dev team. But for the massive amount of time Carter wasn't there, sam pulled that load all his own, and made this great, complex game, and whether you like it or it's admins or not you have to admit that is some fuckin good work. I want tk to be fun to play, have some variety, but also be relatively simple. Not too huge of a learning curve. Etc. They are different types of games, even though they are both FPS, they have a different core premis, and teams only recently started gaining real power, and I keep an eye on that. Since I believe in balance, a relatively well equipped player, say 25k and 100 shielded shots and a tank, should not be attacked from all sides over and over again by a ruling team that's spamkilling everybody, and that is actually set in the rules. Unfortunately the load of tk's playerbase are the people who got banned from redspot, and then they have to be banned here because we do have a true rules set and tey are repeatedly breaking and ust asking for ban, like people who just spam the shit out of the chat, quite litterally f, f, f, f, f... And the offline thing. We try to break language barriers, and ivan is very against abusive admins, so for that reason he nuked the give command and other such things to limit their rule. I just wish more than the rejects from rs would play this. And I wish everybody would stop saying, it's a clone! It's rs junior! Or whatever the fuck. It's us, people who like to code and have interesting ideas, and get interesting ideas from other people, that wanna do something with that ability.

I'm not trying to tell you what to do and what not to do. I'm just trying to help, but keep failing.
Yes, of course you have the right to tell what you think about other games and other developers as well. But telling all that in your own topic about your own game just gives a wrong impression. Especially when knowing you haven't made the game on your own. I'm sorry if you don't get my point, and feel free to totally disagree. I don't mind. Well, I better shut up... smile
Have an awesome day.

Ya know, it really is hard looking at your work, looking at something that is your creation, something that could truly be a great experience and yet all it is is cheating, spamming, and generally complete bullshit. We litterally, as of my memory, have like 4 players that actually, truly play this game, no cheating, no spamming, no rule-breaking, they are real, legit players. And then we have 40 little shits. I don't know how they're doing it, but there is a massive influx of players that have been able to give themselves extraordinary amounts of items, we're talking about millions of coins and almost a billion impact bombs and 20000 missiles... Yeah I don't think so. The client does not forward its copy of the inventory to the server, so cheat engine wouldn't work. This is a continuation of the long trend that this game is just full of absolute rejects that can't play it, and therefore has no real purpose in existing, since after all the banning and such is done, there are 23 banned users and only 5 people that ever log in. It's just sad. And it makes me wanna give up, watching our time and effort completely gone to waste. If you believe you are a true player and wish to keep this thing running, I can't by any means take it down but I'm thinking of just shutting off any updates and leaving it otherwise, then thumbs up this post, comment below. Show me we have hope out there. Show me we have a reason to keep this thing alive! We don't want it to go away either!

Well, I was going to give it a try, but apparently...
- The updater won't download the latest version for some odd reason
- a changelog.txt file of 1077 kb with lots of weird signs in there, either someone messed up the changelog with the executable, or .......

OK, allow me to be a little too honest here. I hope no one will mind me saying, that I'm in the beta team of TK. while it may not seem like I'm playing the game, colton touched up on the reason. the public server is full of absolute unwanted creatures, who are banned from anywhere else. the other day, just because I got killed by someone, I was told to fuck my mother. so I usually would go on the beta server, but well, since it's a beta server, no one's ever on it. and for obvious reasons, I can't share it either. I'm just honestly not sure what to recommend, but I certainly see the issue, and I can confirm, that the cheaters do put off the rest of us as well.

Well, being told to fuck ones mother ain't the way to go, but as long as there are no rules stating what can and can't happen, well.....

there are rules, there just isn't really one for insults. We could put one down but I think the moral practices and circumstancial developments section of that intro overs those if it is needed. If I put a rule against insults then that's a lot more idiots to keep track of and then some people get offended too easily and just gah.

Hi everyone,
a lot of people will be upset, but I had no other option. There have been extreme cheating cases the last few days. I nor the admins can keep checking inventories every single day and editing it. So from now on, the entire game is paid. Anyone who had bought a paid account won't be affected by the change, but free accounts will respawn on a new map where you can't do much. Again, I'm sorry for the suddden change, I thought long and hard before doing this. If anyone has other ideas of how to fix the problem, please let me know.

Money grabbing man. Just shut your game down if you can't do anything already! I don't see other options.

If you are going to make the game payed, then don't change your mind again in the future and mess up your customers by making it free. Just a small suggestion...

was an internal bug that was finally reported, tracked, and fixed. Paid accounts have been a thing for a while, just the limitations weren't this severe. No one had purchased a paid account during this time period. He put it back to allow free players to actually play the game, I wouldn't believe anyone was cheated out of their money since nobody had actually purchased a paid account under this choice. Also people have purchased them long before this happened. Tony and Ivan are working on some more immersive style features, trying to probe at reality, do things like eat different types of food and such. Still in beta, probably will be for quite a while. Maybe it can be part of new features you unlock with paid accounts so we aren't removing more abilities from free ones. Server only gets bugfix updates and small patches, which are then to be delivered to beta code. I manage main server updates.

So questions how much is a paid account where can I get one? Details and all that. I don't see charging a certain ammount a year as being a bad idea as long as it's not to much. Aprone also had to do this because of clowns cheating so damn much.

A paid account is $10, and you unlock it as a once-time payment. This will unlock much more in the next update, right now it unlocks auctions and stuff. I won't say anything planned...but stuff is coming. I plan to finish up the school year and finish the new version before June 10, and I'll be gone for a good while.

Well, our data is completely gone, again. Apparently linode doesn't perform any kind of tests or backups or anything when somebody says hey their serveris using DDOS attack on mine! They just yank it and wipe it. King zombie has been completely glued to the thing that he thinks Ivan is using the linux VPS to DDOS city mass, saying the originating IP points to ims-productions.com, even though ims-productions is actually a ftp only hosting server on EHCP. This is the second time this has happened, and this has also happened to mason. So two lessons here. A: King zombie possibly, or maybe somebody else, took us down by just saying this server was bad to linode. And B: Linode is bad for you when blindies don't like you.
So, character purge, again, not our fault, yell at the person who said the server was doing something wrong. And me and Ivan are really thinking of just keeping it dead. Just forget. If only rejects play it, no real players, and all people wanna do is have it down, then there! You got your wish! Fuckin people, cloning isn't a bad thing, mainstream does it all the time, why you gotta hate on us just ecause we have similar features to Sam?

Hey everyone,
so our data is completely gone, and I have a few options. I can either bring all the servers back up, however the data is completely gone. Since everyone is gonna have to start over, I asume everyone is gonna be angry. So, should I bring it back up or just not bother with it. As I'm writing this post I just remembered I have a back up of the server from November, so I can either bring that copy, start fresh, or maybe not bring it up. However, I would not want ot rip anyone off who paid for upgrades. If you paid for upgrades, please contact me and I will give you your items back make sure you have an email from Paypal or an email from IMS Productions.

Hi.
Linode is not the problem. You can purchase a backup feature if needed. Otherwise, you are responsible for taking backups yourself. smile
