Community Update, May 2019

So it’s that time of the month again, time for the monthly update. So a bit of exciting news starting out of the gate, I have recently been putting a lot of work in to planning out the website and the website for The Society of Creative Streamers.

So let’s start off at home first. I have moved the website back to WordPress as while I like Invision Power Board, it just didn’t seem appropriate for what I wanted to do here. I do have plans to make use of the software, but that is for later in the post. Instead I will be using WordPress as it is simpler for me to post short posts, rants, updates, etc on WordPress, so expect more frequent posts, content, and other cool things. Also I am currently working on a custom theme, so if the website is a bit of a mess for most of May and June, sorry in advance.

Now the exciting bit! I have been working on the community website for the The Society of Creative Streamers group that I am a member of for the last little while, and after banging my head on multiple walls for a few months I have a rough idea of how I want to get all of that sorted. I will be using my, now, spare copy of Invision Power Board to manage the content, and I think it will be better used for a larger website than a smaller one, this one.

Over the next couple of months I will be pretty much focusing most of my non-relaxing efforts into getting these two websites off the ground and working. So in addition to health issues because of the rainy season this will mean less streams possibly, though I will try to stream at least once a week, and who knows there may be some sneaky web development streaming on occasion.

Streaming Content Updates

So over the last couple days I have been working out some kinks and putting together a few hacks and have decided on what the streaming channel’s main focus for the next while will be. I have managed to get together a setup using my existing hardware that allows me to stream Elder Scrolls Online now, as well as stream other games with less lag and other issues.

With the new setup the channel will primarily be focused on Elder Scrolls Online content, which has been my plan for a long time but I’ve never had the ability to stream Elder Scrolls Online reliably, with Minecraft and Stellaris as backups and/or break games for when I or the community needs a reak from Elder Scrolls Online.

There is no definitive schedule yet, but what I’m looking at is Elder Scrolls Online on days I have to work, Stellaris when I don’t and can sit down and play it for eight or more hours, and then minecraft, modded and vanilla, in between when I need to work on projects on them or don’t really have any content plans for Elder Scrolls Online or just need a break.

Still working out health and other issues so no idea on times but I am looking to have all streams be around 7AM (GMT-5) when I have work, and nights off will be started anytime but before 5PM (GMT-5) on Thursday and Sunday as I need to sleep then for work.

Hope everyone enjoys the new content, and thank you for your patience while I smooth out the kinks in the plans,

Community Update, April 2019

So it’s been a while since I posted something or worked on the community so I figured I would post about what’s been happening recently. First some slight malfunctions. Earlier this month my dedicated server almost imploded. Fortunately before it actually did I managed to get most of my data off of it, note I said most. Unfortunately while I did get a file that was supposed to be the backup for the websites database it was corrupted and I was not able to estore the data, as such I will need to re-do everything on the website.

Now on to brighter news, I have been working with The Society of Creative Streams group I am a member of to work on a new website for them so we could have a nice hub for all of our content to be displayed on. Progress has been a little slow, and don’t really have anything to show yet but figured I would just let everyone know that I was working on it.

As for community updates, the vanilla minecraft server has been reset, and is now on season two. We are also hosting a FTB: Sky Odyssey server for modded right now. The discord and community websites have been slowly undergoing an update and I am hoping to get the updates out as soon as possible, but as mentioned above some technical issues have put a little bit of a wrench in those plans.

I have also been putting a lot of time into playing Elder Scrolls Online so expect some content related to that soon, though there will not be any video content for this as if I so much as load OBS ESO throws a tantrum. Other games I’ve been streaming are Divinity: Original Sin, Stellaris, and Ocarina of Time Randomizer. I don’t really have a schedule for streams right now due to health issues so just keep an ear out on discord, I will post to the videos channel when I go live.

Anyhow that’s it for now, hope everyone enjoys the new content and updates and thanks for reading,
