As some of you already know, we have readded store to the ZE server. In this post ill walk you through the how, why and what.
Why are my old items/credits gone?
The store uses a new database that is hosted locally, the old database was called zstore and hosted on the mySQL, the new database is hosted on the ZE machine itself. So because of that you lost all your previous items and credits. This is also to make it fair for everyone and to negate possible knockback issues.
Were did hats go?
Hats are gone, unfortunatly. There were a lot of them and even after reducing them there was still a significant amount. During testing we found out that hats dont wor on roughly 50% of the player models(nothing i can do about that). So we felt that having hats would be a waste of space, downloadtime and the annoyance/questions about them not working properly.
I Noticed there are less trails?
That is correct, to make the store smaller and with hopefully less issues about 40% of the trails have been removed because they were unused(in my memory) or just ugly/bad. Hopefully right now there is a better more relevant collection of trails
I see tracers in the !store menu, but i cannot buy them?
Tracers are for VIP's only as a special service(and to prevent spam of them). Not even admins have them unless they have VIP status as well. There should never be more then 5/6 people using them and i will watch closely if there will be problems regarding the bluring of the screen etc.
Why are prices so much higher?
We felt that these customization options should reward playing on the server. In the old store the items were so cheap you would have the greatest portion of the store very very fast. This should be a more rewarding way, just make sure you buy what you want to buy and do not make mistakes, (for now) I cant refun purchases.
There are less glowcolors?
That is correct, previously there were a lot of weird colors. Right now their is a good collection of more "basic" colors that are all tested and working.
I am a donator/VIP, will i get extra starting credits?
I dont have an answer yet. I will have to take this up with Roy/Soja to see if they cant add credits to the locally hosted database, or i need to find out a way to read the .sq3 file myself(help is appreciated). There is supposed to be a !givecredit command that Roots can use. Unfortunatly it does not seem to be working. Ill try to figure out if im using the right command format.
I am a Donator/VIP, what kind of extra stuff do i get?
Donators get access to glowcolors, accesable via the seperate !glowcolors plugin and extra grenade models(burning tires:)). On top of that VIP's get access to the tracers. Its not just that, youll also get 3!!!! Credits per minute and everyone gets at least 1 credit pm while in spectate, for donators this might be 3 as well but im not 100% sure
Will the knockback issue come back?
Hopefully not, the store is smaller and hosted locally, but only time will tell.
