Remember to save during Trade Fairs

PostAuthor: Gorgon » Sun Oct 04, 2015 9:10 pm

A reminder about saving, which applies to Trade Fairs and other gathering events more than other stuff.

The Avlis servers will save your character file quite often, so usually you don't have to worry about doing it yourself, but there are exceptions. If you don't change areas, nothing will save unless you use the chat command /save (or rest, or the menu command for save location... or log out). If you drop due to a bad connection, it will save your file, but if the server crashes, it doesn't.

At the Trade Fair, people are usually in the same area for several hours, so you need to /save whenever something changes. Even if you don't sell or buy anything, you also get very nice cookies throughout the event, and that also isn't saved if the server crashes. Now you don't have to save after every 50xp or whatever, but after you make a deal, or buy/sell something at auction, it should become a habit.

We've had at least 2 crashes so far this weekend, and I hate seeing things go poof. I try to remind anyone I sell something to about this, but don't always remember myself.

More info on chat commands like /save can be found here: http://wiki.avlis.org/Avlis_Command_Prompt

*edits*
Also please wait at least 5 minutes if the server reboots before logging back in. The servers will love you for letting them start up without the extra strain, and will probably run much better. If you are unsure, just check the player list. If most people are gone, then cancel and wait a few more minutes.

Old but worth a bump during the auctions now, and during trades upstairs....
