Basilisk Publish 9 Merge - August 9th 2017

On Wednesday, August 9th (we currently do not have the exact time), Basilisk will be taken offline and the code from Nova will be merged with Basilisk code.

Unfortunately we do not have an ETA on when Basilisk will be back online, as it is with most of our merges

This means that any changes that were made on Nova, will now be on Basilisk.

As it is with every merge, it's expected to be unstable for the next week or so and bugs are inevitably going to pop up. Any and all bugs found should be reported on our Bug Tracker (Mantis) (http://www.swgemu.com/bugs). If you don't know how to report bugs, you can find more info here (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22463).

Basilisk patch notes (http://www.swgemu.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=201) will be added at the beginning of the merge.

If you need support please submit a ticket to support (http://support.swgemu.com/) or join us at live support (https://support.swgemu.com/visitor/index.php?/Default/LiveChat/Chat/Request/_sessionID=/_promptType=chat/_proactive=0/_filterDepartmentID=/_randomNumber=hnuee6u6vo0fj6vtr525q6wc92sy16xy/_fullName=/_em)
As always TC: Nova and Basilisk server status are available on our front page www.swgemu.com (http://www.swgemu.com/) or on our IRC #status channel.
We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your continued support. We hope to see you on Basilisk as soon as it's back online.

Thank you so much for all the hard work and great progress.

I spent many time on nova to test out all the new code and had a very good time.

It will be a huge milestone for Basilisk.

So funny story...

I think I am/was actually at a point where if you dev folk didn't release a fresh new publish until v1.0 I think I'd be just fine tbh. That is to say I've reached a point of tranquility and equilibrium with the current state of affairs. It's done enough that it seems +95% playable and that suits me just fine.

Feel free to disagree of course. I'm just saying that I had long passed the point where I was just itching and clawing for a new pub to be released.

Just say'in...

Thank you for your commitment to a game that many people simply love. I have been playing off and on since 2004. I never plan on stopping - I'm sure I speak for others.

Thank you for your thorough commitment to recreating such a great game. I think I speak on behalf of all of the SWG community - we appreciate your efforts.

You guys are outstanding

I just came back here after a very long time. Is PUB 9 on basilisk yet?

PS . I secretly hoped for a wipe... is it still a possibility?

08-14-2017, 09:43 AM
Alright folks, here's our current status. From what we can tell, our database is in good enough shape to proceed with another Publish 9 merge attempt. There's still a lot of potential for corruption or database issues to crop up that we haven't seen, so we're going to be taking some extra precautions in case those issues do pop up. Because of this, when the server is taken down, expect an extended downtime before it comes back up with the new publish.

Our current schedule is looking like Basilisk will be taken down approximately 12 hours from now. That timeframe may change between now and then. Once it's taken down, we'll start the process of backing up the database again. With the size of the database, this alone will take a fair amount of time, so we're not going to give an ETA on when it will be back up. Once Basilisk does come up, the server's new navmesh system will begin building meshes for all static and player cities as well as POI's, which will also take some time. Expect the server to remain locked for a while after it comes up.

TLDR: When we take the server down, expect the update process to take a while to complete, especially with the issues we ran into over the past few days. We'll get the server up and running with Pub9 as quickly as we can.

Thanks Miztah. Here's hoping everything goes well.

I find your generous faith reassuring.

08-14-2017, 07:48 PM
I know I've only been here a few short months but I want to heap on some more praise to the folks behind the scenes. The job you've all done thus far is amazing. I'm just so stunned at the dedication of all of you. Thank you for bringing something we all loved back to life.

My wife and I look forward to the publish and everything beyond.

If you delete a character before the server goes down will their name be available again once the merge is complete and the server goes back up?
