The server has been moved from the old host (Fragnet) to our current host that runs our VPS (NFOServers). We have already moved our Build Server there and it seems to be much more stable.
New Address: postnukerp.net:27015
If any of you connected using the domain before, you it will automatically redirect you to the new server.
What Happened to the old server?
The host of our old server had a 100% data loss on the entire node and does not do proper backups. Raid is not a backup by the way.
Once this happened I tested out NFO’s GMod servers and they seem to be more powerful, and cheaper. So we moved.
What happened to the old data?
Thankfully I had a backup from May 18, so its not a total loss. I have had to go in and rework many of the config settings, so there may be some tweeking left to do. I have also created a new Workshop Collection.
Workshop Collection: PostNukeRP Server
It should have all the addons needed for the server, not counting wire (You will need to get wire). I have also added the HL2 Cars addon since we will be opening up vehicles soon. Will get more into that later.
PostNukeRP: Inventory Update Part 1
This is the first and probably the largest part to the new Persistent Item System, and I just realized the acronym as I typed this.
This means some items such as miners and power generators have a persistent state in inventory. When you pick up a damaged persistent item, it will stay damaged. Fuel in generators is not persistent as well, so you no longer have to worry about loosing fuel.
I have also included several bug fixes as well.
Report Bugs at Dev Forum or PostNukeRP Steam Group
There will be bugs, there are probably new ones with all the updates done to the code. Please report any bugs you find. At this point I don’t really care how you get the bug report to me, just need them. The PostNukeRP Steam Group is another good place to report bugs, its free to join on Steam, and there is a bug report section.

Been a busy few days with the other servers going down. We are still working on bringing them back up. We are currently testing the Build server on a different host. If everything checks out the GMod servers will be hosted by the same company we run the VPS and Minecraft servers through. Will post more on this tomorrow.
As for the SE server, it has now been updated.
– improved ship navigation
– added the erasing functionality to terrain auto level voxel hand
– example workshop worlds with docking procedures:
– fixed character moves uncontrollably while in jet-pack (aka death when exiting cockpit)
– fixed autopilot overriding overridden thrusters
– fixed “No Share” prevents faction members from reading text when faction read/write enabled
– fixed beacon light visible when it should not be
– fixed asteroid invisible during pasting
– fixed character has wrong light when turning lights on helmet

We are deeply sorry to inform you that during today’s server maintenance a raid array issue occurred.
This resulted in full data-loss on this node, we have actively been working on data restoration been unable to retrieve anyting from the drive so far.
Currently we are close to having the machine alongside the IPs back online, however with a fresh raid array installed.
Your service will be re-created but unfortunately be a fresh install as the local backups were lost as well.
Due to this major impact of this issue we have added 7 days of additional service time to your service.
We are sincerely sorry about this inconvenience and are trying have done our utmost to retrieve any possible fails, unfortunately to no avail.
We do hope that you haven’t lost trust in us and we will of course assist you with setting up your server where possible.
So basically all the data on both servers is gone. Several years worth of files and such. The only up side is that I do have a database backup of the PostNukeRP server from 5/18/2015 so not all the player data from it is lost.
What does this mean?
It means the servers will be down for a few days as I try and reconfigure everything. I will have to upload all the extra content back to the server, and will have to get PNRP development version to a stable state to uplaod.
The build server will probably be back up first however.
I may also look at changing hosts, I am not sure yet. It is rather disappointing that they do not have any backups of their servers.
So until further notice, both servers will be down.
Over the past few weeks I have been updating and patching PostNukeRP. For more info and patch notes you can check out the RC site, or the PNRP site.
The PNRP server is also running the latest version of wire and the Adv Pod Controller is set to use the fuel system. I have also opened up AdvDupe and AdvDupe to guest. If this is not abused it will stay set to Guest.
This week in Space Engineers we get DX11, some new models, and Station Rotation. DX11 is the first of some of the major things they have been working on for Space Engineers. The lighting still needs alot of work, and there are of course some glitches. The advantage is that you can still run DX9 if you want. The other down side to DX11 is that Workshop mods that use custom models will need to update them to work with DX11. So for now, if you are connecting to the TBU server you might want to keep using DX9. It will still work, but the custom models will look black and will still function.
The other big change is the new ability to rotate station blocks. You can now enter “Rotation” mode by pressing B. Many theorize that this is one of the first steps to allow building on planets.
– DirectX 11 renderer
– station rotation
– reworked models and textures: Beacon, Gyroscope, Warhead, Projector, Spotlight
– fixed character shaking during cluster reorder
– fixed setting ragdoll world matrix
– fixed client dying for no apparent reason
– Added Height Offset for Suspension Wheels – THDigi
– Attach GameLogic to Blocks multiple times – Tyrsis
– Create asteroid from prefab voxel definition midspace
– Floating item quantity display update – rexxar-tc
– Fix assembler issues – RossM
– Allow modding the Laser Antenna’s line-of-sight requirements – RossM
– Shorthand numbers for ScreenDialogAmount control – UberMouse
