Seems there are some even more amazing bugs with 4.88. People are now losing their engines, guns and so on. So if this has happened to you, this is all I can do for you. IT'S MAGIC THEY GOES GO POOF!!!!

CHECK YOUR SHIP BEFORE UNDOCKING..... Make sure it has everything mounted or you may be floating in space for a while, if it lets you undock. If you leave the game with your ship in space, there is a change you will return and not have the engine or other items mounted. Needless to say if this happens your dead in the water until either a GUIDE comes on and beams you to the closest base or I move you to one via the files.

If you need me to move your ship, PM me the name of the ship IF it is out in space. I will put your ship onto one of the bases/planets in that system so you can remount whatever was unmounted. If your ship is already docked you should be able to remount it.

PLEASE NOTE THE ...... Read More

UPDATE 1/23/17:

NOTE: The 4.87 server IS already up and running, just waiting for the IP addresses to be swapped.

Had a phone call with TRON about an hour ago. Here is what I learned and our plans.

We do have two servers, though we had issues trying to get two going at once due to IP issues. That can be fixed, WE THINK ANY HOW.....

Here is what IS going on and gonna happen. First, BIT is going to be changing the IP addresses so that the "back-up server" , will now be the main server which will be running 4.87. The current "Main Server" will take a back seat and become the back-up server. NEVER FEAR however neither are better than the other, they are both virtual machines so you will never know we are running on another server. Cool eh?

So get ready for it as TRON tells me BIT can have it done in minutes AND ...... Read More

The following bases need to be accounted for. When you do so I will make your base SPECIAL. It will no longer use any food, O2, or repair items. Nor will you need to have people on the base unless it get's damaged. You will need to keep fuel on the base in case it is attacked though.

So the following bases need to be claimed with the following information please.

If you wish to keep your ownership a secrete that is fine and dandy just send the info to Glock via a private post. I promise no one will know but us. If by some chance you have already told me you own the base listed just do so again cause I prolly lost the info and with 330 PAGES of PMs I ain't going back through it all to find the info.

The info to send is the following. Base name, System it is in, Distance from the closest thing you can dock with (trade lanes, jump gates/holes, bases, planets, etc.) and/or how close to a mining field it is. ...... Read More

Hey guys, gals and well whatever else may be floating around out there is CHAOS SPACE.  evillaugh

Providing we go back to 4.87 we can change things as WE want them to be, SOOO on that note.......

I would LOVE to hear what YOU think will make this server stand out the best. What kind of runs would YOU like to see being made, what kind of smuggling routes, and how would YOU do the mining if you were me?

This is YOUR TIME to help mold CHAOS the way you want it to be. The time for going with the stats quo is OVER MAN......

I look forward to hearing EVERYTHING you think will make it great here.

AFTER THOUGHT: Please also consider ALL Reputations faction allies/enemies/neutrals as changeable as well.  yes

If you have build a base please read this and respond either here on the forums or send me a private PM. Anyone NOT doing so may find their base has been removed until they do so. I wont delete them unless you refuse to respond, then I will figure you just don't want it any how.

Okay so we currently have 29 bases in all. 4 are ADMIN bases I have made for you guys to use and enjoy. NOPE I AM NOT TELLING YOU WHERE ALL OF THEM ARE. Gotta go DISCOVER them eh? lol (NOTE: RP stands for Role Play. That is what your character is acting like in game. Sadly I have found few know what this means these days so I had to add this ya know.)

The following bases need to be claimed by their owners with the following information given to me please. Base name, Forum Name if it is different from the one your using  blink System the base is located in, how far it is from the closest dockable thing (bases, jump gates/jump holes/lanes, or mine ......

First welcome to CHAOS, we are very happy you have come here to check us out.

I would like to offer all new players a 100 MIL QUICK START BONUS  if they would like to take advantage of it. Just our way of saying, Welcome to CHAOS we hope you enjoy your time here and stick around. To get your quick start bonus please PM Glock or Hooligan on the forums. Tell us the name of the ship you started here with, not the type of ship please the name YOU named it.  Roll Eyes You'd be surprised how many say, "It's a Liberty navy cruiser...." Which makes it so easy for me to find it since there are currently about 2,332 of them out there. LOL Then we will make sure you are indeed new and then add the cash to your ship.

To sign up on the forums please do so and then send Glock an email at the below email address to make sure I get you set up faster. discoveryptc@gmx.com

First, let's understand a few things boys and girls. TRON is GRACIOUSLY allowing us to piggy back onto HIS servers of which HE pays $500 - $800 a MONTH for every month. He is not charging me, which is good because we have no donations and i would have had to shut it down if he did charge us. So by his GRACE alone we are able to even play the game. Maybe the saying BEGGARS CAN'T BE CHOOSERS! Should apply here eh? I am a beggar for sure when it comes to free server space, even if my own Ministry website never has worked. COUGH hoping TRON READ THAT PART. LOL

Second, Freelancer is , let's all be truthful here eh, DEAD! Only a tiny handful still play and yet we STILL keep this up for you tiny few. WHY because we love you. O.O

Third, TRON runs website for government entities and makes it a MASSIVE felony to tamper with. HENCE ANY AND ALL ISSUES that could even remotely compromise these sites, servers etc, MANDATES a total shut down and ...... Read More

Okay folks get back onto your ships and get out there and do some trading, SMUGGLIN, or just whatever FEELS GOOD I guess.

Reports tell us the server is once again working right and not being stupid. Maybe they got their junk fixed eh?

BASE FILE EDITS: Please note due to the issues we are HOPING are resolved soon, I have gone ahead and made sure ALL bases are set to "Dont_Eat & Dont_Rust so they will NOT take ANY damage unless they are attacked by another player and we are asking no one attacks bases right now please, and YES it makes a log of all attacks on bases so I will know if ya do.  yes You do NOT need personnel, food, water, or O2 on the bases any more UNLESS you are building a new module of some kind. They you MUST re-stock the base with the max number of people, 200 per level, food and so forth.

Also, I have maxed out the health of the bases as well to make sure they are all set up well as some were very close to blowing up in fact. No longer will you need to worry about them while we are having these issues and we do hope to have the net working well again soon.

Here is a pic of 2 different trace routes. one from the server. Top left. And the  other trace rote from my machine to the forums. from the server machine you can see the trace times out after the vegas hub. Sometimes the denver hub either times out or just flat out pings almost 2000ms..

The bottom right trace route from my machine shows a bad connection at hub 66.109.9.74, which is a hub in Kansas.. It depends on where your net routes through on how your connection is is routed between you and the sites you ping/go to...

Try it for yourself. Open command prompt and use this command:  tracert website/IP  like so  tracert www.abc.com  or tracert www.discoveringchaos.us .

The trace route will show you every hub your connection has to go through to get to whatever site you are trying to ping. It will also show you how it connects at each point by pinging each hub 3 times. A *  denotes a timeout ...... Read More

I guess I need to clarify this:

Until the connection issues can be resolved. I highly recommend not even logging into the server. The server itself is working perfectly. And it will continue to ban characters. None of this nonsense will stop until the connection issues on the ISP's end, get fixed. There is absolutely nothing we can do about it. This is actually a nation wide issue we are experiencing here. And it does actually affect global connections as well. But being that our server is located within a couple hundred miles of the actual problem, we (the server itself) are most affected.

Again, unless you want to continuously have to ask me to unban characters, just don't login. Sorry. Now, I do not mind unbanning characters for ya'll. But it needs to be understood that this will continue until the ISP finally fixes the issues. For now, I highly recommend just making a list of all your characters that got banned and ......

The staff and CHAOS players wants to remind ALL players this is not GC or any other server. this is CHAOS and though the name may sound like we are a crazy adult server we are not "adult" as we do have children and families playing here. Thus we respectfully ask ALL players to keep ALL chat lines family friendly at all times. As you can see by the current sanctions we DO read the chats, private chats as well and will sanction all players using curse words or foul talk. We desire RP talk always but you can RP without foul language, YES IT CAN BE DONE, we have been doing so here for over 10 years now. So please friends respect the people here, respect yourself and have a blast, in fact blast others but do so without using blasting language that is unfitting for human beings.
Although banning IS our last resort we sadly will ban you if we must, please do not make us ban you.
Thank you so much for your respectful RP fun.

UPDATE 7/4/16: We are very sorry for the outage. There is a glitch in the programming and we have yet to figure it out. Seems the updater, when it went down FRIED something and we cannot get it to go back up I guess. We are working with BIT to figure it out but do remember they are responsible for the Government in the town they service so we are not the biggest issue here. I HOPE to have Hooligan and BIT and TRON figure it out soon.

PLEASE do not give up on us as you know we are almost never offline and have not for the almost 10 years I have been running things. So it DOES happen and no offence to GC but this new mod has SERIOUS issues with it for US. We are not running a copy of the right OS for it and asking for the money to get a copy has not been something I wanted to throw at the people here. So not all the FLHook is working sorry to say and this MAY be another issues.

IF there are any GC ...... Read More

It has come to my attention the Nomad ID we use here as been.........CHANGED once again. It seems it is only good for Gunboats and below now.

SCRATCH THAT!!!

We only use ONE Nomad ID here so those sporting that ID CAN fly a VS with it.

Any other ISSUES with ID's please PM Glock about them so I can rant and rave and throw a fit and then CHANGE THEM. MUWAHAHAHAHAHAAH!

So if you see a feeler flying around in a Nomad BS and you see the ID says he can't fly that, HE CAN so be cool.

EDIT: WELL while in Reno last night i get this call from the "Pizza Repair Place" and of course I asked them to fix the flat tire I have so I can get home..... Now what the heck does THAT have to do with this post? The caller was Hooligan letting me know GC changed the files making it impossible to buy anything over a gunboat ...... Read More
