Alera Hosting [EU] - Up to 254 slots!
« on: January 28, 2013, 05:50:07 pm »
Alera Hosting


Alera Gaming has some excess server power, of which I have decided to put to use. If you wish to try a gameserver hosted on our hardware, you can pop on to our groupfighting or TDM server in-game ("NW_17th_Groupfighting", "17th_TDM"), our AleraGaming PW_4.5 test server (PW Scripts) or one of the Official EU Iron Europe servers hosted by us.

If you wish to acquire a server you can contact myself via Steam (under the ID "Gishank"), or private message me here.
You WILL get access to a web-based game control panel, and FTP access to your gameservers files. I will also be on hand to provide support as and when needed.

WARBAND SERVERS;

Slots / Price (MONTHLY)
0 - 20 slots - €0.16 per slot (For example 20 slots == €3.20)
21 - 50 slots - €0.14 per slot  (For example 50 slots == €7)
51 - 80 slots - €0.13 per slot (For example 80 slots == €10.40)
81 - 110 slots - €0.12 per slot  (For example 110 slots == €13.20)
111 - 150 - €0.11 per slot (For example 150 slots == €16.50)
151 - 200 - €0.10 per slot (For example 200 slots == €20)
201 - 254 - €0.10 per slot (For example 254 slots == €25.40

NOTE: Please understand that servers running slot counts above the standard cap of 200 are not officially supported, nor encouraged, by Taleworlds. Stability issues can occur with servers that have more than 200 concurrent players online, however, this is entirely dependant on the module of which you intend to use; it's functionality and how well optimised it is. Listed below are the recommended maximum concurrent players for known modules, I intend to update this as and when we acquire appropriate feedback from users.
Native - 254
Napoleonic Wars - 235
Persistent World 4.5 - Undergoing Testing.


Voice Server HOSTING - Mumble
10 - 100 slots - €0.10 per slot (For example 100 slots = €10)
101 - 200 - €0.09 per slot (For example 200 slots = €18)
201 - 300 - €0.08 per slot (For example 300 slots = €24)
300+        - €0.07 per slot

CURRENT SPECIAL OFFERS
Purchase an Iron Europe server today, and receive a 10% discount. Your server will come equipped with only the Iron Europe module, should you solely run this module and not upload any others and this offer will roll over to the next month for continued savings.

This offer stacks in the following formulae with our normal 3/6/12 month discounts;
Base Price - 10% = NEW VALUE x <3/6/12> - <3/6/12 month discount> = FINAL VALUE

NOTE: Minimum slot count - 40

----

If you purchase a Mount & Blade: Warband server from ourselves with the intent of running a Persistent World community you can choose to pay an additional €10 per month for access to a set of advanced scripts which will be managed through PHPMyAdmin. This includes nameserver. This fee goes directly to the author of the scripts (DanyEle) whom will be actively monitoring feedback and bugreports, with the most highly requested features being implemented at his discretion.

- /gg: Transfer an amount of gold to another player’s bank account. First type the command, then the gold amount, then the players’ GUID you want to send gold to.
- /scripts: Get information about the scripts.
Although the commands responses appear in local chat, all that is returned by these commands is only visible to the player who types the commands and not by the ones who are around him.
Admin Scalpel replenishes stock levels to 40

NOTE: Should you wish to use the scripts on multiple servers (including remote servers not hosted by us) it will be +€5 per server.

3/6/12 month discounts can be applied and will be calculated by <base value> x 15/20/30% + (script fee x 15/20/30%). For example should you order a 200 slot server (€20) for 3 months - €60 x 0.85 = €51 + (€30 x 0.85) = €76.50

We may be offering a control panel in the near future, if I can get it functioning correctly with Warband. :P

Wanna point out that an i7 920 is not able to run a 200 slot server with the slots filled this would cause horrible lag

Warband gets throttled more by RAM than processor speed. Pretty much anything that's at least a quad core should be able to run a 200 slot server pretty well if it has enough RAM and bandwidth. An i7 if I remember correctly has 4 physical cores so it really shouldn't have a problem running warband. If these guys are really running 24 gigs of RAM I really couldn't see it being a problem running more than one server off a single box.

Gigabit, not GigaByte :P

Whilst there is some lag with 200 players, it is not particularly worse than any other server that I have played on in the past 3 years or so, despite the fact that we are also running a populated PW server at the same time. However, I appreciate your failed attempt at libel concern.


In unrelated news, we have a control panel up and running, and will be implementing it into all hosting free of charge.
Also, the advanced payment discount has increased and custom game set up price has decreased.

The hardware has been tested rigerously, and is more than caperble of providing a stable and enjoyable experience even when full. Of course, there are some inherent issues due to NW's optimization (as awesome as the module is, NW pushes the limits of the engine).

If this service becomes overly popular - superior hardware solely dedicated to providing this service will be added.

Hello everyone!

Today, I am happy to announce that we (the 17th Regiment of Foot) will now be providing voice server hosting. Due to licensing restrictions we will presently only provide hosting for the Mumble platform, though we hope to expand to Ventrilo and Teamspeak in the future.

Current pricing (minimum order 10 slots);
10 - 100 slots - €0.10 per slot
101 - 200 - €0.09 per slot
201 - 300 - €0.08 per slot
300+        - €0.07 per slot

And yes, our current bonus offer on long-term hosting applies to these too! :)

As an added bonus, order a gameserver above 40 slots and you will receive a free Mumble server equivilent to 50% of the amount of slots your gameserver has (e.g if you ordered 40, you'd get a mumble server with 20 slots free). If you order above 110 slots you will receive a mumble server with slots EQUIVALENT to your gameservers.

PS;
Presently I cannot update the main post of this thread as Tiki is away in the far east, as such, please refer to our website - www.17thregiment.co.uk or http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,256530.15.html for further information.

Right, now that I'm back the various sections are updated, including adding the VOIP hosting as a standalone offer and as a perk.

Right, the latest updates have been made to the thread with regards to the increased discounts for paying for multiple months ahead of time.
