Eat, Sleep, Dev, Repeat  
Or: 'Please stop messaging us, servers are coming!'

With the launch of Trouble in Terrorist Town, I figured i'd give you all a quick update on the progress of our servers, as well as a round-up of this week's changes.

Servers:
- Pixelmon - Should be launching either this week or the next, pending an update.
- Sky Factory 3 - I expect around a week to complete development, expected launch is early July.
A mystery 1.10.2 server - Still to be decided, but will launch almost immediately after Sky Factory.

Store:
- You can now buy claim blocks in the store at a reduced rate (as compared to buying them as part of a donator pack)
- Trouble in Terrorist Town donations will arrive in the next day or two, we'll ping you on Discord when these are live.

Reminders:
You can apply for staff through our forums! Please do apply, we'll be ramping up recruitment in preparation for the new servers.
- Just because the server can handle it, doesn't mean you should be letting your mob farms and mining go wild. Same rules apply.


As usual, thanks for playing!

The Road Ahead  
What's coming in the next few weeks...

As mentioned, we've been hard at work refactoring how we do things - the most noticeable changes, and those you're probably most interested in, are to our servers! I'm pleased to inform you that our second machine has been purchased. It has beefier specs, with near gigabit connection to most of Europe. Here's where servers are moving and what's coming up...

s1.protongaming.co.uk (Current)
GMod Trouble in Terrorist Town - Late June / Early July
??? - Let us know what you want us to host! Unturned, maybe?

s2.protongaming.co.uk (New)
Infinity Evolved - Mid June
We'll be placing an announcement in the header of the site and on our Discord when we transfer Infinity Evolved - the process will take around an hour.
Pixelmon - Late June
Coming along nicely, Light just loves hearing your suggestions. 
Sky Factory 3 - Late June
Will be based on our old server files, and will launch as soon as we've mucked them out. 

As usual, thanks for playing. This would never have been possible without your commitment and generosity.

Much Ado About Money
Thank you for your donations!

It's been crazy watching the donation goal get completely smashed time and time again these past few months, we really can't thank you enough. In all the years we've been doing this, we've usually only been able to cover our base hosting costs and nothing more - but we're now presented with the unique opportunity to invest in new hardware and niceties. 

More details will be revealed towards the start of June, but I can assure you that plans are being made for a second, significantly more robust, physical server to host our more demanding games (e.g. Minecraft). We're being very careful as we expand to ensure long-term sustainability - both in terms of the software we're using on the backend/how we manage stuff, and financially. 

BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY...
Are you/do you know a graphic designer, artist or general creative type who can do some work for us? We're looking for a real background to the website, and ideally a new logo. Please do get in touch via. Discord @Ozicarus#8421.

As usual, thanks for playing!
