    Hello all :) and welcome to another exciting month for both StarMade and GenXnova.

    For the month of September GenXnova celibrates our third month as the top number one voted server and we are continuing to improve on our community as we go.

    Last month we announced and established the “GenXnova Galactic Council” (GGC) and held our first community meeting allowing the main factions of the server to take part in the ever changing position of the GenXnova community and on server game play.

    The construction and development of the council has afforded us many improvements in the community that our server and player base would not other wise have at their disposal. Some of these things include but are not limited to the ability to assign tasks to factions to fill in needs the server has such as help finishing the look and feel of the pirates and pirate bosses on the server. The council also affords us the chance to plan events and structures for events both pve and pvp related.

    We will continue to develop on the ideals and productivity of the council and continue use all the council has to offer to improve on the server and our community over all.

    This month the leading factions for the Spawn, PVP, and PVE galaxies are as follows. (these definitions are determined by systems owned activity and members in faction. As well as pvp skirmishes on the pvp side to challenge for right to be on the council.)

    Spawn = undefined (no faction has dominated or stands out owning more systems or having more players active)

    PVE = Ironclad Errants

    PVP = Blade Falcon

    These are the 3 leading factions and will be taking part in the community meeting for the council to be held around the middle of the month.

    For PVE

    This months plan for PVE stands as a continuation of the projects developed and assigned last month and the factions assigned those projects continue to work on those. We have added to that list a racing project that for the first month we already know will be only in the planning stage and is on a scale that has never been tried before. This added project will be assigned by the end of this month and the council will help to identify what factions should be involved in that plan.

    For PVP

    This months plan for PVE stands as a continuation of the PVP events put into play last month still planning to move towards some twitch steaming of pvp events, and also this month we will begin the planning phase of planned skirmishes between factions in block classification (meaning 2v2 and 3v3 using defined size ships such as heavy fighters.) We also have a new race project in the works for the pvp side of things that includes the ability to shoot the racers.

    This months pirate boss

    This month we decided to revive and refit an old favorite to StarMade that made its own fame on many servers and we felt the ships over all design was proper for our own “Empirium” race on our server as their lore includes the revival in new light of old ship designs.

    The Heldtech Brigadier

    http://starmadedock.net/content/heldtech-brigaddier-modern-refit.2801/

    To genXnova will now be known as the “Empirium Spore Class Carrier” This 350k to 400k refit and redesign will take all the best of the original ship while adding in GenXnova drones, turrets and lore class based structure.



    This is another way GenXnova is working to not ever lose the better part of so much work people have put into the heart of this game along the way.

    Hope to see all of you on server very soon :)

    I played Starmade months ago, when it first released, but it's been quite some time and I've therefore forgotten how everything functions. I'll definitely have to redo the tutorial to refresh my memory. However, I'm looking for a server where PvP won't be an issue and where I can pretty much claim a planet and build up on my own without fear of being destroyed. Is that possible here?
    Yes it is. There is a whole PVE galaxy, where you can build in the company of other PVE minded individuals, and create a star community based on cooperation and not violent competition. There are still npc pirates out there, but you can protect your own structures/planets with "home base" features, and ultimately build your own weapons and defenses to keep it safe.

    I hope to see you around!

    the "stability" is not a server issue but a game source issue. the server is

    CPU: Intel Xeon E5-1620v2 4c/8t @ 3.7GHz | Memory: 64GB DDR3 ECC 1600MHz | 3x 300GB Go SSD Intel DC S3K SATA3 6Gbps (RAID)

    So on our end we have provided the best we can for the game to run on. If we had say 80 people on there I could see where the server itself stability might be in question or an issue, but that is not our average and barely see 25% of either cpu or memory in use on the server. So no the stability issues are not on the server but the game source itself. I can not make any guarantee to the stability of the game source at this time or any time. That is something you will have to ask the game devs about.

    As a point of reference, my factions space station keeps around 13 ships docked at our station, of various sizes from drone to dreadnought. Some of them are even docked to each other. When we go out fighting pirates, there's typically 2-3 light carrier to dreadnought sized ships, vs. 12 or so pirate ships ranging from drone to frigate.

    So, I'd say there's really no lag issues with up to 15 ships on the field at the moment :)

    The main post has been updated to reflect recent updates to block limits on the server.

    As of Oct. 1, 2015 the block limit on ships on the server will be 1 million per ship with a turret limit of 20 per ship, and docked drones / fighters will be 20 as well.

    We have made these improvements based on improvements made to the game source itself that now allows us to re address our block limits. We hope that these new limits will help those that have been waiting for an increased block limit on the server to be able to either finish their designs or bring in ships that they have had waiting in single player.

    as always thank you to everyone who plays on our server and supports the development of our server.

    Welcome to another exciting month of StarMade and GenXnova is very proud and honored to continue to maintain the number one server spot in both population and votes by the over all StarMade community.

    October as we all know is the season of all hallows eve, and lazygamerz.org has our Halloween forums theme in full swing. We also plan some pumpkin treat events on server as that faithful date grows closer and including those who game with us on the 31 st. Check back with us here for more information as we get those events ready.

    This months GGC promises to be exciting and progressive as we have expanded the boards on our own forums to include suggestions and community guidelines boards to help establish a stronger community participation to how the server runs and what we have going on

    GGC members for the month will have more on hand to talk about and consider for topics of importance for the server based on the topics in both the suggestions and community guidelines boards.

    This month for the GGC the standing members who have agreed to take part in the meeting are

    For pvp = empty slot as anyone eligible has not spoken up to agree to take part.
    PVE = Faction lead; MgnfcntBstrd, Faction name; Limitless Possibilities
    Spawn = Faction lead; mikes1537, Faction name; The Weeping Angels

    These members will meet around or on the 15th of Oct to talk about community guidelines that we might need to adjust or add, and suggestions players have brought to our attention as for 9improvments to the server and game play.

    This month for the pirates we still have the ship we spoke of last month being refitted from this very popular and old design for StarMade

    http://starmadedock.net/content/heldtech-brigaddier-modern-refit.2801/

    “Empirium Spore Class Carrier”



    Last month another project took seniority and was brought into server and we will continue to work on this one in the coming months.

    Empirium Spacestation 15;




    a 15 million block shell prepped in smedit to be a server based Mario cart type race track. This station will be designed and built by players on the server and developed we hope to be the best competitive entity ever made for a StarMade server. No this project will not be ready this month but development beyond the initial station shell design that took me personally six months to develop as a 3d model to import and over 30 gigs of memory for smedit to render. We will let everyone know how things develop as we assign players and groups to help develop on it.

    Also again this month there has been changes to the old standing block limits based on the progression of the game development to allow for bigger and better from players without server issues.

    As it stands now

    Ships = 1,000,000 blocks (1 miliion)
    Turrets per ship = 20 in total with none bigger than 75,000 blocks, and 300,000 blocks total between the 20
    Docked ships per ship = 20 in total, and 300,000 blocks in total (yes you can have a 300,000 block ship docked to the mother ship. Or up to 20 little ones)
    Generators = 20 but only to be used on any ship over 500,000 block in size to begin with. and you can have up to 250,000 blocks total for generators.

    We separated the turret and docked ship limits to be 2 limits of their own and we have tested and added the generator limits based on work done on the server over the past few months.

    You can find out more about ship limits in the new community guidelines board on our main forums.
    As always we thank everyone who supports us and we will continue to strive to meet the needs of StarMade and those who chose to play on our server.

    A few, a million block ship is too small for me personally tho =/
    Thats not small brah. Its just that I have heard that it is not faction friendly place if you are against the top dogs of the server.

    For Yule / X-mas / Winter Festival for 2015 lazygamerz.org and GenXnova would like to introduce the first development for 2016 planned for the GenXnova star made server.




    Our very own Woden / Oden / Krampus

    Or in the aspect of sci-fi our space wale / budong / nomad




    This is a development where all admins are taking part to fill out this “thing” and it is to be more than any simple billy-bad-ass; This very strange thing will be an estimated 5 to 7 million blocks and fire very simple ion for a 5 million block ship / entity that’s not going to be a very nice thing.

    It will have red standard hull as its meaty insides with white advanced hull for bones and power blocks for blood veins. It will also have many other interesting inside body parts and maybe even a maze type path inside it. We are not final on our plans over all just enjoying the build right now.

    Only one of these will be spawned on the server at any time and will not be a simple boss event rather a random location manual spawn. This entity is meant to bring more challenge and more blocks to the server for players to want ot find but fear to run across.

    The GenXnova “Dragonfish” is do out the first part of 2016 and promises to be a challenge to be reckoned with. Just one more way GenXnova works hard at being the number 1 server in star made, and our way for thanking the community for allowing us to inhabit the rank.

    Thank you and happy holidays from lazygamerz.org and GenXnova

    lol thanks nah I used the SMEdit application that I am the main developer for to do the outer hull coloring with it. That speckle look is one of the features of the SMEdit application to be able to do. Thanks for your comment and your interest in the project.

    Exceptional work as always, Bobby. That is one epic masterpiece for certain.
    :) thanks dude glad you liked it we hope to have this "thing" out very soon hope to see you on there looking to engage and take on one of these things out for yourself and your guys. Thanks for your comment and your interest in this project.

    Introducing another finished project that has been in the works a while now.



    GenXnova gate angels will be guarding over the gates at spawn and once finished each will hold the signs showing where the gates they guard go.
