Vendors disappearing and possible Basilisk Rollback - 12/19/15


Well something got messed up pretty bad. Unfortunately bunch of vendors, shuttleports and starports went poof. While we are investigating the issue, we are making backups and trying to find the underlying cause. At the moment the worst case scenario would be a rollback. If that happens, and we are hoping it wont have to come to that, all characters created in the last few hours, all items looted or crafted, all XP gained, all skill boxes trained, pretty much everything you've done after the last backup, will no longer exist in the database, and for all intents and purposes will be gone.

Rest assured that we are trying to resolve this as painlessly as possible, and we will do everything in our power to avoid item or character loss.

Backing up the server takes approximately 90 minutes and a reboot will take a few hours on top of that, so we are looking at 4 hours downtime at least. Of course, in situations like this its very difficult to predict how long it might take and how many restarts might be needed.

Thank you for your patience and support.

A rollback is not nearly as bad as it could have been. Thanks for the update.

Tunkson
12-19-2015, 08:05 PM
Well said, Cubor.

Hope you guys get it fixed. No rush on this, we'd rather wait a few more hours and have it done right rather than have it brought up sooner and there still being issues with it.

Well .... I have been in IT for about 18 years. I ALWAYS figure out how long it takes to complete a task, then I multiply x2. That is what I tell the user community. So the question now becomes .... did they or did they not times 2 it?

LOL

In the end .... it gets fixed when it gets fixed.

hi guys!

I just wonder about macros, do they save on server or local?
I got a macro the other day that helped with center of being or something, from a guy and it really changed my gameplay, I could finally complete missions... haha.
I wonder if I will still have this due to the rollback?

Just curious, no complain:
1. How far do you intend to rollback this time?
2. Do you know what happened or is this something that might happen again?

Other than that: Great work.

However we did have reports of 2 non human vendors in the South Eisley Cantina reportedly missing (aliens in custom clothing).

Well, some vendors are still missing, so we are going to attempt one final rollback. We are going to push the server back as far as we can. Pushing it back beyond this point would start causing more problems instead of solving them. We are aware that some vendors might still missing even after this rollback, but doing another rollback after this one just isn't a risk we are willing to take.

We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope we will still have your support after this unfortunate incident.

On the last patch wasnt it the humanoid vendors that disappeared as well? I mean I recall that my droid vendors were fine but the humanoids had disappeared before they were restored in rollback.

Also a wipe right before release of the village isn't an entirely bad idea that would be an interesting arms race and experiment in game economies.

same here, server came back but my 3 vendors are still missing

btw, Vlada; do we know why some vendor gone poof but some not?

Looks like terminals are most steady ones, but even in humanoids, some has gone but some has not. Is it something about old dated vendors or new, or items on vendors, or custom dressed, or location, or vendor number on building or whatever?

Do we have an idea about that?

The humanoid vendors that disappeared were unsatisfied with their wages and just left, no amount of rollbacks can bring them back, only money! :)

So I just joined and created my character last night and now it looks like it was deleted in the rollback. It's not a big deal and I don't really care, my point here is that is there a point to me creating a new character or should I just come back once this issue has been resolved?

All Of my vendors are back withh appropriate stock levels, I don't sell enough so I am certain all is accounted for.
From the location and training levels of my characters I would say the roll back is to somewhere around 3 hours before skynet shut us down. My Smuggler mastered 5 mins before the shutdown and when I came in he was in cnet between buff cycles. All in all it could have been worse- I just hope the overall damage to the crafting community wasn't too bad.

My 2 Human Vendors are still missing as well...

Implementor
12-20-2015, 03:55 AM
So this is a little different:

Log in 6pm pst, all vendors there Humanoid-clothed and Robo-vendors. Withdraw 50 or so items and stored on second character. Interact with all vendors.

Log into various other characters for 15 or so minutes...log into non-merchant toon, go into GH...no Humanoind vendors. Log on merchant: No vendors. 3rd: No vendors.

Softlog merchant. Hard log merchant. Full Scan. Log on merchant head to starport, travel to Naboo, hardlog, travel back to GH: No Vendors. (hehe tryin' all the tricks)

90mins later same.


Someone mentioned items were still for sale through bazaar, didn't try that. Food first, then take a look at that.

Along with about 4 million units of resources and all my food and drinks for sale...oh well gives me more to do for awhile.

Not sure yet.

In my humble opinion, better to hold off doing anything you truly care about in-game until we see what TA thinks in a couple hours (or whenever he returns from the EARTH system) .

Remember that TCNova is an option too, while people wait for a more definitive word.

Still my 3 vendors are missing.

But strange thing is you can still see the goods inside these vendors on bazaar search and the ones 30 days list period expired ones drop off from vanished vendors and the system is sending me vendor mail about that.

And this brings another question: IF The Answer cannot bring them back, and IF we accept to lose years of production and keep playing on the same way THEN we cannot put a lot of items to vendors for a long time. Because system will assume that I have still 4000 items on my vendors (but actually 2500 of them vanished alongside with the vendors). Then it will warn me that I CAN NOT PUT MORE ITEMS.

SO in the end, will it come to delete character?

It's gonna be frustrating to do that a char lives from day 1st.

Sigh*

60 days issue for you tops

60 days issue, you are right but also there is vendor count problem. IF system thinks that vendors are still exist then it wont allow us also place a new vendors if we reach max vendor count. On this case we must wait until vendor's maintenance fee will finish (which is 110 days I guess) then 30 days system warning time.

Well lets see, this is a beta and such things can happen.

And still, it's sad :(

I cant login to the server, i can select my character but when i hit "next" it just sits in the loading screen and I have to force close the game, not sure it is related to the current issues but i thought iŽd post it here anyway.
It might be relevant that I just started playing yesterday so my character is maybe 15 hours old in total so if there has been a reroll i guess the data for my character is from before it was even created?

Depending on when your character was created, you may be trying to log in to a character that does not exist. As there have been no reports of toons poofing, I would suggest seeing what happens if you try to create one. Of course, if you get the "one per 24 hours" errors, then you'll be waiting for Monday to try again. It is not a fun first-time experience for Basilisk, but issues of this severity are, fortunately, somewhat rare but can and do happen.

Yeah that was my assumption as well so I tried creating another character but did get the "one per 24 hours" message which also means (as far as I understand) I now reset my timer so I will have to wait another 24 hours =(
Its not fun, sure, but I completely understand and Im extremely happy swgemu even exist, I just yesterday started searching for what even happened with SWG since i stopped playing back in 2005 and then I found swgemu, im still almost shaking with happiness that I can relive those days again :P

12-20-2015, 03:08 PM
If vendors are in close proximity, you can withdraw sales, and even remove items from stockroom, of one vendor while accessing a different one.

Will that work with the invisible vendors?

If so, and the problem persists, those effected could at least redistribute their items on invisible vendors.

And, if you don't already have a vendor nearby, you should be able to place a new one and then gain access to your items.

They were my first vendors and were on line back when we were having problems with the counts on the vendors.( still counting items that had been sold) They did have newer items on them because I do seem to have to restock . I wonder if anyone else can remember if there missing vendors were from the same time. My Master Tailors vendors are all still there but she has had them less than a year.

Guys, its definetly frustrating, but main question for now is that:

Should we accept our vendors lost forever and place new ones?
or
Should we wait for some time more in order to TA might bring a solution?

For either of that we need a Estimated time of waiting.

So dear Devs, we know that you are doing your best. But we, as a market decisive group of Basilisk, please tell us that we should wait how long more?

Then we will deal our losses acording to the time you gave us.

For me, I am afraid to place a new weapon vendor in case of old ones come back and mixed up things much more.

Shame it only sells my crap and not the good stuff, hehe. The items on the 2 lost vendors no longer show up in stockroom or sales...they are dead, Jim :(
Sorry for late posting but RL called me, so I have not been aware of events.

Appreciate all of the work from the staff.

Roughly half of the vendors in SCM and other malls and homes are still missing. I noticed server has been up for about 18 hours and please, please forgive me - but has there been an announcement about further rollbacks, or is this the way it is going to be? Truly sorry if I missed it. I'm puzzled as I see people playing as though everything is just going to go on from here, and the server has been up for 18 hours roughly.

I respect the difficulty in fixing problems and appreciate everything here. Like others, I don't want to do a lot of playtime if there is a likely future rollback yet again, and I'm incredibly skeptical that the current status with so many missing vendors is going to be the final status quo. Thanks.

The vendors and items are not deleted from the database, they are just failing to load at server startup. The problem is the info of exactly where the vendors were is probably lost, but the items are not.

Ill be analyzing the data more in depth for the next couple of days and come up with a solution to recover them, most likely spawn all the missing vendors in a common place where the owners can go and retrieve them.

It doesn't matter how it was/is coded, its our code and we can edit/lift restrictions for special cases whenever we want, the only important thing is the data to be in the database.

If the vendors and items are in the database, but their locations are not (any longer), wouldn't it be true that rolling it back further could reestablish those locations? Perhaps to the last (normal) server restart?

Also, in the past, around the last pub, didn't we have the same problems with vends and shuttles? If so, whatever the cause and fix was, shouldn't it be able to work again?

Yes and no. There is a limit to the point in time where we can rollback to, we have already rolled back to the point where we think is the safest for the data to be consistent, any further might create more problems and issues that wouldnt make it worth it.

Before doing the rollbacks we made a backup of the entire database and in the next days we will try to transfer the data to a separate machine and try a more aggressive rollback on it. This takes quite a lot of time considering we are talking about 400GB datasets. There is a possibility that we can rollback the data to a point where we can recover the positions and transfer only the position data back to basilisk, but its a far fetched possibility at this point.

In case that fails what we will attempt is to move all the vendors to a specific location as I described in an earlier post.

No, we don't need the positions of the missing vendors, its "easy" to pick the missing vendors from the database because they are the ones that have a "null" zone attribute.
But info like, when was the vendor placed, was it a NPC one or a terminal would be helpful to find a pattern. So far it seems to only have affected old NPC vendors that were placed prior publish 7/6/?

More info on exactly what publish would be helpful.

All 4 of my missing NPC vendors were created 2+ years ago so that was before publish 6 I believe. I feel like I can rebuild and regroup my business, losing the vendor will be a set back with the loss of crafted items, am reluctant to start crafting to fill a new vendor to have it wiped out with a rollback.

Think I will wait and see what the New Year brings, if things are stable by then I will begin the rebuild. As it is some of my vendors are still around, either terminals or post publish 7. Swoops. Stim-Packs and Wound-Packs left.

Good luck with the fix gentlemen, I don't look forward to reloading a new vendor, but I guess I could update their outfits or something when this gets resolved.....

Is this effecting the No Shuttle issue too? Theed shuttle "works" but no "shuttle". No biggie but yesterday, shuttle didn't work at all. Same for Cnet

To the T-Shirt Shoppe owner who made us the ''I Survived The Great Vendor Purge of 2015'' last time... We might need your help this time around too. And make extra orders for the ''Slit Wrists'' edition. This Purge is no joke this time. :|

Looks like it may be affecting trainers also. Gorath on Tattooine is missing all the entertainer ones right outside the baby doll bantha cantina. And only two (ranger and pikeman) are visible by city hall. Medical trainers are also accessible.

Check again on those. I thought they were missing last night, but after hard logging, they were still there.

Honestly not trying to salt wounds, but give more data points. All of my vendors, placed in pub 6 and also pub 7 are up and running fine (I/O on tatooine). All vendors have all items.

In the I/O - the shuttle is invis. though, and I bet larek put it down a dog's age ago. Interestingly, all his trainers, which he lost and had to replace because he forgot to stock his treasury about 2 mo. ago, ARE visible.

Thanks for the work you're having to pour into this one guys. Honestly - don't ruin your christmas (holidays?) for us SWG nerds.

hm. I placed my shuttle in Sept '15, it's fine. I placed my vendor in Feb '15, it's fine. looking at people's posts it seems it's older stuff that's poofing... maybe there's some little line somewhere that puts a max size on the database... and it's cropping the list

Seems like that's the general consensus considering bugged vendors, starports, etc. Grinded hard before the last rollback and even harder before this shutdown-- definitely feeling in the dark.

For the last rollback I found myself a couple of skill trees back.

My advice? Assume the worst and you won't be let down. But honestly it seems there's a larger underlying issue here.

All good, I understand everyone's frustration. IMO I don't see the team letting the vendor mess fester-- it'll get fixed one way or another whether it be with a rollback or using The Force.

We have never had issues with berkeley, and actually it saved our asses lots of times because of the ability to rollback to any point in time.

This is bug is in our own code.. but you keep blaming your mistakes on BDB, (a database that has been in production for more than 20 years in thousands of projects).

Corellia seems a little barren of shuttleports right now. Only the newest 3 are still named and available it seems. Ours is still sat there in the city, but not named on map (just as Generic "shuttleport") and not usable. Seems a little reminiscent of the merge when all older cities got destroyed.

well please do not forget the most important part.

The guys who develop this game for us, they are doing that for the love of community and for the love of Star Wars Galaxies. The Best MMORPG ever.
They don't take monthly subscription fees, fat salaries, ANY kind of profit.

They are doing that for us and for fun.

And none of us has the right to demoralize them over some bugs or errors or simple losses.

I lost more than 2000 item, tons of enhanced weapons worth hundreds of millions and months of hard working other goods and...

...I dont care a bit even!!

If they can fix it then they can. If not, we will start over.

This is SWG guys. Please show some respect to the game and the peoples who try to relive it for us.

I don't think anyone is showing disrespect in the thread. We all understand that there is a glitch in code somewhere, it is holiday season, and if the server even needs to be closed for a day or two while the problem is sorted...I think we would all be good with that. Personally, I was just posting a fact about shuttleports, and comparing the age aspect of what seems to have happened. I hope everything goes ok and speedily - for the Dev's sake :)

Sad part is, i still remember the day the NGE hit. dozens of vet players sitting in Tatooine cursing out anybody who rolled a jedi, often taking it totells, or following them around and killing anything near them so they couldn't XP. hell, my sever had a concerted effort for a while to farm any and all saber crystal or robe-dropping mobs and putting them up for far more than any new player could get.

Who is this being directed to ? I dont see anyone being rude to anyone here and I think we all know they do this for free and many posts have thanked them for doing it !

In saying that I have lost many many items myself 8 vendors full , and no I dont care about items , I do care about the time spent making them , sorry but 4 socketed stuff is a pain in the butt lol , so I do care , but if they cant fix it I will rebuild it , no complaining or whining , it is what it is, and knowing the community here thats exactly what people will do .
People are reporting what they see , vendor situation and what not , that is what TA has asked us to do .
