Auto Reboot

Postby amena wolfsnarl » Wed Dec 17, 2008 3:36 pm

I know that everyone is busy specially at this time of year but is there a way to possibly implement an auto reboot at say 80 to 90 hrs? Could give everyone a warning that there will be an autoreboot in 1 hr, 30 mins 10 mins to warn people its coming.

Just a thought so hate the 90+ hr up times

it's seriously been requested Amena for almost a decade. In all likelihood your post will recieve a response within a week or so, apologising for a lack of whatever... boots will be consistently shorter for a week beyond that..and then they will go back to being weekly events, give or take new code.

sorry, but that's the facts jack. just the facts.

The reason it's never gotten done is that we worry that by setting a hard deadline it will discourage people from doing anything when that deadline approaches, OR inflict harsh penalties on people caught by an auto-reboot while CR'ing or something. Because of that, the goal has always been to make zones refresh without a reboot.

However, if the general consensus is that a scheduled reboot every x hours would be preferable, that's something we could consider coding. Feel free to use this thread to discuss it.

A state-remembering mud, regardless of reboots/crashes, with more randomness in rare pops.

This would reduce the mad dash for cash/rares at boot.

It would also keep the mud alive during 50+ hour boots.

there should be no difference between a freshly booted mud, and a mud that's been up 100+ hours.

This would require some changes, such as eq/boss pops being tied to something outside of boot sequence.

Well.. would require a lot of changes, but since we're talking goals, we might as well aim high.

I don't think auto-reboot code can work.

We just need immortals to be on more often or more willing and able to offer a reboot if the uptime has been longer than 40 or 50 hrs, and if there is no-one online that objects to one, etc.

A long time ago I played on a mud that had a reboot stone. It required no admin interference at all; all logged on players had to be on the stone room and touch stone. After that, there would be a 5 minute wait in case anyone changed their mind or whatever (there was a command to cancel the reboot that anyone could run from anywhere in the world), and then it would reboot. The stone had a random 40 to 60 hour cooldown so it wouldn't get abused for rare-hunting.
