  Mid Week Update
Posted by: Snapman - 06-28-2015, 06:00 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

And time for your midweek update. We've come across a stash of linux server files for mutiple goldsrc modifications, now we just need the community to pick which mod we should start with.

The choices are as follows:
Earth Special Forces, Half-Life Rally, Science & Industry, The Specialist, Project Timeless, Global Warfare, The Wastes, The Trenches, Public Enemy

Vote Today @ http://modriot.com/showthread.php?tid=85


Also another important note, we've picked up another server in the Chicago area, making our coverage of the entire United States, Canada, northern part of Mexico, and western part of Europe complete. Now comes the task of installation and modification of the game servers there. We'll be needing another staff member to manage this new location, so ill be adding an application description for the position shortly. I'll be personally spending more time on the forum attempting to finish up, installing any necessary plugins over the next week such as a chat box, server listings, proper donation system, and anything else i can think of. Until i do so, ill be posting the donations links manually every couple of posts to ensure it stays on our portal homepage.


  Community Update 6/23
Posted by: Snapman - 06-23-2015, 04:14 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

A week older, and here are the updates: we're up to 5 server locations now, Linux servers in Los Angeles, California / Seattle, WA / Qubec, CA (near the US boarder) / and the Netherlands, plus a Windows server also running from California. Now that the infrastructure is in place, we now have the ability to launch game servers covering both the US and EU regions. We've also been lucky enough to pickup a few new moderators for the US:West and EU server locations, but staff development is still a priority. Due to that fact ill be posting a list of our currently open positions again in hope to increase applicant counts:

US West Manager (manager of the US West server location, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
US Central Manager (manager of the US Central server location, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
US East Manager (manager of the US East server location, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
Content & Services Manager (manager of the teamspeak staff/forum moderators/Youtuber+Twitter/ and graphics designer)
Forum Moderators + Webmaster (Webmaster to keep things going behind the scenes, forum moderators to keep things going on public boards)
Graphic Designer (this position is open to multiple occupants to lighten the load on each artist)
Teamspeak Moderators (shouldn't need any more than a few)
Twitter & Youtuber (will manage our twitter & youtube accounts)
US & EU Gameserver Moderators (atleast x2 per game server) (if there's a mod we're not currently supporting that you'd like to moderate for, just provide links to the linux server files, and some sort of proof of a remaining player base for that mod. If we support a mod thats not currently being hosted in your region, make a request in your application )

Position descriptions and application layouts can be found here - http://modriot.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=33

Note: We've made another change to our teamspeak server location, promise this will be the final change, as we can just point the dns entry to any ip and it will change for you. Our teamspeak server can now be reached at Ts.ModRiot.Com:9987 so make sure to update your shortcuts. For our gangwars fans, we've finished restoring the gangwars mod forum which can now be found @ http://gangwars.modriot.com

Well we've got some mid week news to update the community with, so here it is. We welcome our new staff member British Jack as our Modular Combat moderator and community youtuber. On top of that good news, we also have this, we've purchased our forth and fifth servers located in Los Angeles & Quebec Canada. With these new additions, we officially have full coverage of the United States including most of the European Union. Game servers will be installed once the new servers have been prepared.


  Community Update 6/15
Posted by: Snapman - 06-16-2015, 02:52 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

Well its been another week so here are the updates. Our previous domain provider freenom finally did the dirty deed and yanked our freebie domains from us, so we've purchased our own to end the hassle. From here on, we'll be using the ModRiot.Com domain for our services, so make sure to update your bookmarks. We've also added support for these new modifications: Modular Combat and No More Room in Hell. So far game servers for Zombie Panic, Brainbread, and Sven Co-op have been launched from our European location with more to follow, along with our Zombie Panic west server being relocated to our central location. As for Vampire Slayer, we've hit a new record this week with a total of 8 connected players, which is almost unheard now a days with this mod. Hopefully in the near future we can help arrange meetings between players in order to organize a collective weekly match. As for our own Gangwars modification site, it's currently being worked on atm and should be up and running within a few days now located @ http://gangwars.modriot.com thx to freenom.

Our old teamspeak server is now officially down, so we'll be continuing from now on with our new ts server located @ eu.modriot.com:9987. As for our current staff shortage, we're still looking for members of the gaming community to fill the listed positions located here http://modriot.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=33. We've created posts for each position currently open informing those interested on the details of the job.

The list of currently open positions is as follows:

US West Manager (manger of the US West server locations, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
US Central Manager (manger of the US Central server locations, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
US East Manager (manger of the US East server locations, dictates which mods are installed on his machine and the moderators that work under him)
Content & Services Manager (manager of the teamspeak staff/forum moderators/Youtuber+Twitter/ and graphics designer)
Forum Moderators + Webmaster (Webmaster to keep things going behind the scenes, forum moderators to keep things going on public boards)
Graphic Designer (this position is open to multiple occupants to lighten the load on each artist)
Teamspeak Moderators (shouldn't need any more than a few)
Twitter & Youtuber (will manage our twitter & youtube accounts)
US & EU Gameserver Moderators (atleast x2 per game server) (if there's a mod we're not currently supporting that you'd like to moderate for, just provide links to the linux server files, and some sort of proof of a remaining player base for that mod)


  Change in Domain to .Com
Posted by: Snapman - 06-13-2015, 09:58 AM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

  Commnity Update 6/8
Posted by: Snapman - 06-09-2015, 07:04 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

Yes i know its been longer than a week, but my free time has been limited. As for our updates, we've purchased a EU server located in the Netherlands, and we should have game servers up on it sometime within the next 24 hours. We've also updated our applications section and position applications located @ http://modriot.com/forumdisplay.php?fid=33, will be adding the final few over the next couple of hours. Additional updates include gaining support for 2-3 new modifications, creation of a twtitter, youtube, and in the near future a community facebook page.

Also to note, we've changed our teamspeak 3 server, the new ip: 185.53.131.195:9987 or eu.modriot.com:9987


  Twitter & Youtube Acccounts

Star Donations Always Appreciated

In order to keep this gaming community running without the use of ads of any kind, donations are very much necessary for continued operations and expansions. Any sized donation you can make would be very much appreciated. All finances will be used for server rentals for the continuation of our project to keep goldsource & vintage source mods communities alive, while also giving 'up and coming mods' a platform to cover their hosting needs.

  Community Update 5/29
Posted by: Snapman - 05-26-2015, 11:05 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

Starting this friday, I will be making a weekly post on the status of the community in whole instead of generating masses of smaller posts throughout the week. First off, we've purchased a new VPS located in Austin, TX. This will be our second server hosted by ModRG, with plans for future purchases in Dallas, NY, & Germany. With that being said, we're in need of staff members for a variety of tasks, from server moderators, to system technician. You may fill out an application here http://modriot.ga/forumdisplay.php?fid=33. Be sure to follow the application layout when posting on a newly created thread.

Another idea we're bouncing around atm is concept of selective sponsorship. Basically it goes like this, we search for  half life 1 mod based communities without gameservers, offering them a chance to be sponsored by ModRG. The sponsee would run the server as they see fit under certain conditions such as.
1: End tag of the server hostname must be "| ModRiot.com" along with our url located somewhere on the MOTD
2. Its your job to setup the server any particular way you want as long as it remains somewhat populated.
3. Mod community members must remain active members of the modriotgaming community.
4. If your mod community already has a site, a reference to ModRiotGaming must be made as your primary sponsor.
Failure to abide by any of these rules will lead to the immediate termination of your sponsored server.


Information New Mods Under Consideration
Posted by: Snapman - 05-14-2015, 03:06 PM - Forum: News & Announcements - No Replies

Might as well start a thread for any and all games under review to be officially supported by ModRG, taking note of the mod's active player base and its current public server coverage. If a mod is found to have a decent enough sized player base while having a minimal amount of servers operating, then we'll either put it up to a vote or fast track it considering the circumstances and launch a server upon its approval.

--------

First on the chopping block are these two mods:

-------

Base Defense Mod (http://www.moddb.com/mods/b-def)

&

Wanted: The Western Mod (http://www.moddb.com/mods/wanted-the-western-mod-steam)
