Release: Unknown Borders

Release: Unknown Borders

We are happy to announce that the Unknown Borders community has now gone live!

Officially, work on the community website began back in February 2016; unofficially it had already been in the workshop for a few months. Now after 10 months of planning, designing and least of all programming, we can finally say that we have arrived at our destination.

These last 10 months have included long nights of work, and for many of us, countless sleepless nights. Wondering, how we should do one thing or the other. But through it all we have gained new followers, friends and fellow gamers.

To give some of you guys a little perspective into how much work has been done, let me say this: We have written over 3.000.000 (million) lines of code divided among the website, the coming TeamSpeak bot, the server administration application and several minor apps that will make our future much easier.

Though this website has been marked "complete", our work does not stop here. For now we will all take a couple of weeks to relax, and focus on our loved ones, families and friends as they have suffered the most. We will gather strength and ideas for the next haul.

In the coming year of 2017, several releases have been planned. Including the new Studio, 3 individual games that are currently being developed, and finally work will continue on the community website - as there are still a few features missing or bugs that may arise as people start to use the website.

Finally I would like to say thanks to the members that participated in the creation of this community. And a special shout-out to our lead frontend developer Diceler, how was responsible for both adapting the template and the creation of our jQuery features. Without him, this would not have been a success.

We hope that you will continue to support our community through the games we play together and with donations to help keep everything running.

It was you guys that made all of this possible!

Teamspeak Reset and Update

Greetings Members and Visitors

After much deliberation we have finally come to a consensus on a new structure for our teamspeak servers.  And the overall theme for this change, is the wish that people try and mingle with other users, rather than sit in a corner with a select group.

The New Structure

There are no longer a "clan area". Instead, all donators and registered clans on our website can gain access to the "-- Private --" channels. For now, we have preregistered the two clans 4100 and DSO, but these will later be required to register as a group as per normal regulations.

Private channels are moderated, if people are found to not abide by our rules, they will be subject to removal of privileges. 

All registered users have the ability to move other users of the same rank or below. This feature will be run as a test, and we will later discuss the results.

Donators

Now donators have a few more privileges than they did before, first of all, they can not be kicked or banned by normal members. Only the staff team and administrators have that ability. Though they can still be moved. 

The special feature of a donator, is the ability to gain access to the "-- Private --" section of teamspeak. They are free to move other users inside one of the rooms, if of course that other user has allowed it.

Rules

By using our teamspeak services you agree to abide by the community rules and terms of service found on this website.
Furthermore, if any user is found to misuse their powers on teamspeak, their privileges and ranks will be removed, even if they are a donator or from a registered group. And be set back to being a simple "guest" on our server. Severe cases, may result in temp bans or even permanent bans.

When ever a staff or an administrator issues a warning, it is associated with the users account, and will only be deleted if enough time has gone by. If enough warnings have been issued, the system will automatically kick/temp ban/perm ban the user.
Please be aware that this warning system is implemented across all of our services and networks. So if you are issued a warning in one of our game servers, that warning will persist no matter what service you use.

The complain system is also in effect, and it only takes a few complains over a [redacted] timespawn to start the kick and ban process. At the same time, all users can always kick a lower ranking user from their channel.

 

We hope that you will enjoy your stay on our Teamspeak server, and continue to support our aspiring community.

Best Regards,
The Staff

Donation Drive 2016

Greetings UB members and friends

It is now time for another donation drive.

Since our last donation drive 8 months ago, a lot has changed with the community and the services we host.

First and foremost, the server location has changed to my private closet, which has been turned into a server room, where it now stands behind a 500/300mbit internet line. I would just like to say thanks to the two great guys Michael(Dr.xx) and Rasmus(Stainar), who hosted the server up until this point.

Secondly, the server itself has received an overhaul in hardware, making it a proper server. I will include a list of the hardware at the bottom of this post.

And finally, our website is nearing completion. There are only a few things left, before it will be moved from beta to release stage. We expect the website to be completed during November, though no later than December. As December marks the start of our next project. The Unknown Borders Studio, more infomation about this will be released as the project starts taking form.

A special note about Teamspeak

As mentioned many times before, we are slowly but steadily moving to a new rank and rights system on our Teamspeak server. And our programmers have reported that the new Teamspeak Bot, or rather service, is soon to be completed.
This means that those that wishes to continue having the rights they have atm on Teamspeak, must register on our website and input their Unique Teamspeak Identifier (found in Teamspeak > Settings > Identities > Unique Id) on their account. Rights can still be granted live, but will disappear when the user disconnects.
We will not activate this bot/service until everybody has had a chance to register a user.
