Release date for PlayerWorld hosting

We will release the Beta version of PlayerWorld hosting Monday June 23 (Yes it's June not July), to test it or create a Player World you will need a VIP account.

Since everyone want cheap price, I have drop some plan, like Web hosting.

Basic PlayerWorld hosting cost will be a fixed cost of $59 for 6 month or $99 for 1 Year, there will be some restriction on memory and CPU you can use. Other more expensive packages will let you use more memory and CPU for NPCserver...

There will be 3 groups of PlayerWorld based on a internal calculation (see later in this message how) .

First Group will be visible for everyone, it will be the top 3 PlayerWorld, they will be hosted for free and will have some privilege (will announce it later) .

Second Group will be visible for everyone but trial player will not be allowed to play, it will be a group of 4 PlayerWorld and they will be hosted for free also.

Third group will be invisible for everyone and will be reserved for Gold and VIP player.

When you just order a PlayerWorld hosting you start in the Third group.

Each Month the last of the first group will go in the second group and the first of the second will go in the first group.

The PlayerWorld Team will decide what server go from the second group to the Third group.

For the calculation of point it will be based on the 3 servers you play the most, the server you play the most receive 3 points, second 2 points and last 1 point.

Then based on your subscription status we will calculate the real rating:

If you are gold it will be : Number of point X 3
If you are vip it will be: Number of point X 2
If you are Lifetime classic it will be: Number of point X 1

I just have one complaint, July 23rd? That seems so far away and I'm impatient but I'll get over it. But really I can say one thing I'm definatly getting a playerworld. Does that $59 for 6 months include an npc server?

One last question if I buy a year can I have a month free?

One Liners!!!

And Unix thats great. Everyone else didn't see the prices planned, they were ALOT higher, im glad Unix found a way to satisfy both ends of the deal, as more people will buy it now its alot cheaper.

Unix maybe you can have webhosting, but as a seperate option, as some people may still want that, while others may not.

Thats less than $10 a month ($9.83, around ú6 which is dirt cheap and wouldn't propose many problems)

Also Unix:
Are you still giving the current people online the certain amount of hosting for free, I think it was 6 months before, have you scrapped that or changed the time?

And how do you wish for the PWA to work around this, as it will be different with different rules, possibly prices, prosedures etc.

Well I heard that testing through PWA will be cheaper for hosting possibly, or some benefits.

Also the PWA, or so it was said a few weeks ago, would put the PWs on list or take them off to become visable.

And someone needs to keep the servers legal and within the rules..

I have many too why more need hirring. But out of the ones that were hired, only two were considered for the 4th member, but I think thats been scrapped, hopefully there are some good people out there for the team who didn't apply before. Anyhow...

Unix is on *waits for updates from posts above*

This one a friend made a long time ago. The style is probably outdated nowadays, but it's quality stuff. Plus I'm going to pay for hosting so, there shouldn't be too many restrictions on level quality as long as it's playable.

I think there are restrictions on becoming visible on the playerlist. Otherwise you will just be invisible but still players can log on I think.

I think he means that if you just want one hosted and not public, then only gold and VIPs can get on it.

And as far as I know someone will have the powers, other than Unix and Stefan to switch them from private to classic (That was only in talk though) and then classic can play if you get put on that list...

You got it! Thats the idea, although it doesnt have to be a PW you can just have some server space, for developing your scripts/levels etc..
