Obsidio - Blockade Simulator - Releasing? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

Hello everyone,

As many of you know, I have been working on a blockade simulator for Dark Seas.
I took a long break from its development after finishing the main stuff, and Loozerme added more ships, fixed a few bugs, so credits also belong to him.


A preview of the game:



We have a small problem

It seems like Grey Havens does not care about the simulator, so they will not be able to host it, like OOO hosted the old one. So we either have to pay it ourself for you guys, which will not happen, or create a donation system to reach the monthly target to pay the host, and I am not sure if it is against the terms of Grey Havens.

Or we can make it self hosted, this means that whoever that wants to run the cade simulator, needs to have a little bit of a technical idea on how to run it (of course we will explain aswell), but that requires portforwarding, good net and probably hardware.


If you have any ideas of what we can do, out of these options I described or otherwise, please let me know there.

have you figured out if the donation system is against the terms of Grey Haven or not? Also how complicated is the process of trying to self-host the app? would you be able to explain that portion to me?

What are the hardware/platform requirements to host it? PM me with details, I have a couple of servers currently that might be able to handle it.

I'm not sure how it was proposed to them, but would a Steam paid DLC perhaps change things? As compared to just a free service for the existing players, which I imagine wouldn't appeal to the developers. Just a thought.

this is now the 3rd person i've found making a sim cade, I spoke to the OM's about creating an android/ios version(months ago) which i had permission to make so im currently in the middle of that now.



donation system can be a widget with a donate now button and a calculated number lets say 30$ a month of whatever the average is.



Heres a code for a widget on which calculates your target each month


 
<form action="https://www.paypal.com/cgi-bin/webscr" method="post"> <!-- Identify your business so that you can collect the payments. --> <input type="hidden" name="business" value="donations@kcparkfriends.org"> <!-- Specify a Donate button. --> <input type="hidden" name="cmd" value="_donations"> <!-- Specify details about the contribution --> <input type="hidden" name="item_name" value="Friends of the Park"> <input type="hidden" name="item_number" value="Fall Cleanup Campaign"> <input type="hidden" name="amount" value="25.00"> <input type="hidden" name="currency_code" value="USD"> <!-- Display the payment button. --> <input type="image" name="submit" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/btn/btn_donate_LG.gif" alt="Donate"> <img alt="" width="1" height="1" src="https://www.paypalobjects.com/en_US/i/scr/pixel.gif" > </form>




Dont use that code it needed to be edited to your own personal use

Not sure about TOS at the moment, personally haven't looked into that part yet.
Self-hosting isn't that hard, it requires having Java installed, running the jar file and opening up a specific port so people can actually connect.

However, preference remains for a centralized host and service location.

Got any progress to show on that? Quite interested how that would turn out as mobile game.

Not a lot... This is running a single instance of the server though; where the plan is to expand to a few instances. Still not a lot though..

I can likely host this on one of my servers, since I don't really use it for much but I maintain it forever. You can PM me and we can get it setup!

I believe an alliance is in order before you can try their blockade simulator, a lot of it had bugs but still very well designed and feels the same as the game.

I'll explain it so everyone can understand why no1 has a cade simulator because by god u are dumb.

From what i understood, who ever this persone is that created it. Had the full intention to release it to everyone. Up untill the point and i can be wrong but i'm fairly sure it was Aeri from AH or who ever the frak that kid is. Put his D*ck inside this persone and started mentally mind f*cking him into only giving it to AH who then gave it to CIS.

Do not forget tho,

AH/CIS saved this ocean, they are heroes. Never forget

Telling people they are dumb yet you do not even check your own facts lol. I have never had anything to do with Kade sim so unsure how you even got my name out of it if you do not know me! :) thanks for the shout out tho. And kinda hard to insert something you do not have as I am female.

But please continue on.. since you seem to know so much

The reason I didn't release it yet is because I am busy IRL, and I can't be bothered to continue developing it while the game is dead as fuck, it just doesn't motivate me anymore. When I developed it there was atleast 500 players online daily if not 800.

AH has a few devs that took over it, but who knows, maybe when the game gets a bit more active, it will be released to public, I don't forget about my promises.

Odd I played it months ago it was working just fine. But I guess that was because I was in CIS at the time. We had great fun with it, ya it had a few glitches but was in working order able to handle 4v4 battles ect.

Edit: Not claiming you owe it to anyone but some are using it others are not its the way it is, unless it quit working.

Yeah, we haven't forgotten, but we're just all college students working on this, so we have more stuff to do than make this open right now.

When summer holidays hit we expect to be making some progress in opening this up to everyone for use, including all bug fixes and auto-updaters necessary for a decently functioning simulator.
