      GFL Newsletter November 2018   CS:GO DIVISION    This month, it seems that we’ve got a lot to look forward to. After speaking with Roy, it seems that there will be three CS:GO servers up to begin with. The three servers coming back to GFL are: Surf Timer, Jailbreak, and 1v1 Arena. Roy and iTaco will be managing the Surf Timer server, but a manager for Jailbreak or Arena is yet to be announced, but is currently being considered and presumably announced as the servers develop.   RUST REBOOT One of our community’s forgotten game servers, Rust, has received a new breath of life in the form of a new manager with a familiar name to our older members: VirusKing. Virus is one of three people who run a successful large Rust server as a hobby, and has agreed to come back to GFL to assist our server reach new heights! With his ideas and management, we can be sure to put Rust back on the GFL map, and in our hearts once again.   PVKII: This month has seen many promotions for many of the divisions here at GFL. One of which is TheJitFace, as the newest Server Manager for Pirates, Vikings & Knights II. With a new manager and a possible switch from our US NFO server to our EU/UK servers, the simple server may once again become one of the more popular servers in the sourcemod game. We’ll see, Jit!   FORUMS: Also affected this month is our home, the forums. With Steam integration updating, linking accounts has never been smoother. However, along with the update we lost the ability to integrate discord accounts at this time. As part of the updating, the community Shoutbox also got a tune up, updating to fix emote bugs. Another large change was the banner being replaced with an official GFL image, and profile cover photo’s opacity getting increased to allow visibility.   READER’S SECTION: Have any questions, cool bits of information, trivia, or requests for next month’s newsletter? Contact the Newsletter team! We would love to incorporate interaction between the reader and the content. Those willing to participate should contact WigglesWorth (Forums: WigglesWorth, Discord: WigglesWorth#9434) before the 24th of the month so we may work on adding it to the Newsletter!     Disclaimer: This format is temporary, as newsletter is slowly being redone into a new design. We thank you for your patience and understanding.

    4. DIscord Intergration Issues

      We're having some issues with the plugin that we used to allow discord as a sign in method and sync roles between forums and the discord.   While we fix this:    - If you used discord as a sign-in method, you will need to use a different method.  - If you used discord as your only sign in method, you will need contact me on discord (Xy#3482).  - To get your roles on the discord, you will need to ask a moderator.

    7. Announcing the Next Director!

      Hey everyone,   I am here to announce the next director! Everyone welcome back @X2D!   For those who do not know who @X2D is, he was a Council member back years ago (2014 - 2015). This was when the Council rank was equivalent to the Director rank now. @X2D has contributed a lot to the community when he was Council and helped build servers such as Garry's Mod Purge and Garry's Mod Murder.   He is back once again to help GFL and push it into the right direction.   I am very confident he will do well!   Thanks.

    8. Major Expansions Into The United Kingdom & United States

      Hello everybody,   I am here to announce the two major expansions we are currently working on. We are expanding into the United Kingdom and United States using different hosting providers.   Unfortunately, we've found that OVH has been difficult to expand with. Their support time has been incredibly slow (example #1) regardless of critical issues and their data center located in Montreal, Canada isn't ideal for a majority of players in the United States regarding latency, etc. I do understand their prices are very good (especially for the hardware we receive), but unfortunately their support doesn't meet our needs and our servers struggle to populate partially due to their data center's location.   Therefore, I've decided to go searching for new hosting providers and I've found two that have great setups and a lot of potential in my opinion (especially for GFL). With that said, I get direct support via Steam, Discord, and even TeamSpeak 3. On top of that, both hosting providers have built their own network dedicated to hosting game servers by owning their hardware, etc. This results in lower latency and great (D)DoS protection. Overall, I feel these new hosting providers will do well for us and I am very confident!   The new hosting providers are Croncos (UK) and GMCHosting (US).   I've requested first-month discounts or a custom build with lower specs/prices to start. This is because we are in a testing stage for both hosting providers. I want to ensure our game servers will populate and things will go well with us. Once this is confirmed, we will be upgrading our machines to the machines with the best hardware for best performance.   Before reading - The server lineups could change. This is the expected lineups at the moment.   Side note - Due to additional IPs being more expensive than OVH with these new hosting providers, we have decided to use one IP for most game servers and different ports ranging from 27015 - 27025 depending on the game's engine. We may have to purchase additional IPs for some games due to the firewall filtering. This shouldn't affect population whatsoever. Our very successful CS:S Zombie Escape server ran on port 27017 in the past without any issues.   United Kingdom We have recently purchased a machine from Croncos. We've purchased the machine for $84.96 the first month. However, afterwards it will continue at its normal price. Here are the specs of the machine:   Intel i7-4790K @ 4.0 GHz. 32 GBs of DDR3 RAM. 240 GBs SSD. One IPv4 address. 10 TBs of bandwidth. 1 gbps port. Located in London, UK. $111.10/m. No setup fee.   As mentioned above, the machine is located in London, UK. I've found that this location has a great amount of players. For example, our Garry's Mod Murder server we've setup recently has been doing very well and receiving many NEW players.   If this hosting provider works out, we will likely be upgrading to a future machine with the following specs:   Intel i7-4790K overclocked to 4.4 GHz 32 GBs of DDR3 RAM. 480 GBs SSD. One IPv4 address. 10 TBs of bandwidth. 1 gbps port. Located in London, UK. $130.70/m. No setup fee.   The processor being overclocked to 4.4 GHz will surely help the performance of our game servers!   Servers Garry's Mod Purge. (will wait for later) Garry's Mod Murder. Garry's Mod Zombie Survival. Call of Duty 4 FFA.     * This is the lineup currently and just a starting lineup. It could change at any time. I will update the post with the GameTracker images when we add the game servers to GameTracker.   If this expansion works out, we will start expansions into more games such as Squad, CS:GO, Arma 3, TF2, and other games. It all depends on how things go.   United States We have recently purchased a machine from GMCHosting. We requested a custom build for a lower price since I consider this a testing stage. I don't want to buy their most powerful machine without knowing our servers are going to populate. Anyways, the current machine specs are:   Intel i7-4970K @ 4.0 GHz. 16 GBs of DDR3 RAM. 500 GBs NVMe. One IPv4 address. 10 TBs of bandwidth monthly. 150 mbps up/down (with 1 gbps burst). Located in Dallas, Texas. $135.00/m. No setup fee.   As mentioned above, the machine is located in Dallas, Texas. This will result in lower latency for a majority of the United States players compared to the OVH's data center (Montreal, Canada).   If this hosting provider works out, we will likely be upgrading to a future machine with the following specs:   Intel i7-8086K overclocked to 5.2 GHz (six cores). 16 GBs of DDR4 RAM. 500 GBs NVMe. One IPv4 address. 10 TBs of bandwidth a month. 150 mbps up/down (with 1 gbps burst). Located in Dallas, Texas. $260.00/m. $100 setup fee.   This machine is overkill in my opinion, but that's alright! While it may seem a bit expensive, keep in mind it's six cores and overclocked to 5.2 GHz!   Servers Garry's Mod Purge. Garry's Mod Murder. Garry's Mod Zombie Survival. Garry's Mod CWRP. Call of Duty 4 FFA.     * This is the lineup currently and just a starting lineup. It could change at any time. I will update the post with the GameTracker images when we add the game servers to GameTracker.   If this expansion works out, we will start expansions into more games such as Squad (moving server from OVH), CS:GO, Arma 3, TF2, and other games. It all depends on how things go.   Overall I believe this is a great start for us. For example, our Garry's Mod Murder server located in the United Kingdom has been doing VERY well recently! We are reintroducing a lot of older game modes that were loved by many people within the community to see if we can revive them on a different hosting provider. However, we are also in the process of creating servers in newer game modes that have had a lot of success recently. We also plan on getting into many games outside of Garry's Mod if this expansion is successful. I am going to be pushing for Valve to fix their server browser in CS:GO. I am betting that if my suggestion for the CS:GO server browser was implemented and servers that are empty or have a password were removed or moved to the bottom of the server browser, many community servers would start populating again. If this does somehow happen (it would be a miracle considering Valve would need to fix it), we would start a major expansion into CS:GO depending on the results.   Keep in mind again, these are just starting lineups for each machine and things will likely change in the near future.   Anyways, I am also going to be working on a lot of internal projects in the near future. For example, one of the projects has to do with an internal training system. I believe there are MANY things GFL can improve on internally to make us a stronger community. I also understand I need to complete a lot of projects related to the back end. I will be making an announcement at some point regarding the internal changes and so on. I believe starting with these expansions will highly motivate the people within the community and I.   I hope you're happy with this announcement!   If you have any questions or concerns, please reply to the thread.   Thank you for reading.

    10. GFL Newsletter - September 2018

      GFL Divisions CWRP changed to Imperial RP Council Changes This month in GFL, we had witnessed the release of a new division within the community. Classic survival-builder game ‘Terraria’ is now home to a GFL server, lead by new Server Manager Elliot. With it being freshly set up by this SM alone, it had spawned overnight thanks to Benroy and Xy as well. The server is set to be a building one, with pvp included. Here’s hoping to seeing many old and new faces alike come and checking out GFL Terraria! In other news, our newest GMod server, CWRP, has turned to the dark side with an eventful switch to Imperial RP. There are 11 new battalions from Stormtrooper to Sith to be a part of, along with new character models, new jobs to perform, and new tryouts for these battalions. Take part in a variety of tasks such as Attack/Defense missions, Assassinations, and Invasions! The server is currently locked from the public but expects to be ready within the month! Will you succumb to the dark side? On the Social side of GFL, there’s been a major change to some roles/positions. The newly-reinstated council was disbanded and rebranded as Team Leaders, each one in charge of a certain aspect instead of a general field. Benroy as TL of Moderators, Pyros as TL of Event Management, and Unknown leading Public Relations. All current moderators that made the cut now have perms across our discord, our ts3 server, and our forums, PR spreads the word about GFL while maintaining a happy relationship between members and community, and Event Managers can plan events for the divisions or even discord events! The remaining council members Crusty and FlyingJoe were dispurst to the ARMA project (Crusty) and co-leader of Media Team (FlyingJoe) in the meantime. Here’s to looking up, GFL!

    15. CS: GO BHop Redone

      Merry Christmas I'm happy to announce that the BHop server has been rebuilt from the ground up with a new timer.   The servers are going to go online at 4:00 am (CST for NA, CET for EU) on the first day of Christmas.IPs: NA: 104.153.105.207 EU: 79.137.121.134   Timer The previous timer had way too many bugs and a lot of issues which is why I decided on switching the timer to 'shavit’s simple bhop timer'.   Core features of the new timer are: Good Hud with a lot of statistics support for map tiers very good rank calculation based on map tiers (even tho there's no chat tags yet) trigger-based zones central replay bot checkpoint menu and it's Open Source (GPL 3.0) and very actively being worked on and much more. also, it doesn't crash the server every 2 hours and makes zones load for over 10 minutes   Maps A full list of all maps can be found here. My plan is to add 25 maps every week. This will last over 6 months until there are no more maps left on gamebanana. However, there are other sources for maps so there's probably gonna be more. Maps are also sorted by tiers which represent their difficulty. Tier 1 maps are very easy while tier 6 maps are very hard.   Other Plugins and Features pushfix, slopefix, movement_unlocker etc. for the best bhop experience showtriggers - see triggers while the timer is stopped or practicing. ssj - advanced jump stats Discord integration - this is still being worked on but atm. you can see new records on the discord server. (you can see also see ac detections)   Discord Server This server exists for some time now. Join here. It's probably the best place to talk to me about suggestions or similar stuff other than the forums.   Admins Due to a lack of activity in the admin team (I don’t blame you), I will rebuild the team from the ground up which means that all the BHop staff will lose their ranks. However, they can apply again and if they are active, they will have a big chance of getting accepted again. However, this means that I'm currently looking for admins. If you're active and want to help out the server, feel free to apply in this subforum.   A look at the future I'm currently working on: replay synchronization cross server and discord chat relay Planned stuff: better discord Integration for the timer forum integration for the timer chat tags for rankings (hurry up shavit) and way more.    Thanks to shavit for the timer. @Roy for helping me with all the backend stuff I can't do myself. @Reeve for some advice with the server. @Bae for some advice on the art you can see above.   Have fun.
