    Today I'm very excited to announce that Chronet now has a full dedicated machine to host it's servers!

    We now truly have the resources to host any game server without compromising performance on our main GMod Chronet RP server.

    The RP server will also run far, far better now and I'll be watching the performance closely to see what further updates can be made to increase player slots and decrease lag. (A second server running EvoCity or other is a possibility too)

    I also want to take this opportunity to congratulate the entire community and most importantly the staff. The Chronet RP server is reaching new heights daily and we're currently sitting at rank 29 in the world on GMod, let's push that to number 1! Another huge thanks to the staff and admins for all their hard work (and taking time out of their day to administrate the server and try to keep it as minge free as possible).

    Unfortunately everything comes at a price, and in this case it's the physical USD price of the dedicated server. The server more than 3x as much per month as what our old server costs, meaning a constant flow of donations/Premium upgrades is of the utmost importance. New monetisation methods will added to the server soon to help with this (did somebody say hats?). Chronet Fortress 2 is coming.
    Donations are always welcome and appreciated - [email protected] on PayPal.

    Once again, thanks to everyone for making this possible and I look forward to the future!

    Until next time,
    Simple


    PS. Servers besides Chronet RP will come online again soon. SourceBans webpage is also having some issues. SourceBans is working. TeamSpeak 3 is online.

    When you say rank 29... Do you mean out of any gamemode? Or under the Dark RP section?
    Holy shit, it is 29th overall? Damn son
    And a second RP server? Maybe in due time it won't be such a bad idea... As of right now... We probably need a lot more active staff ;)
    Also... Hats? Samplz

    Simple, you are truly an amazing guy! This server has been in some bad moments but some awesome moments too! Before the rockford map came it was empty. The whole server. I was always checking time to time to see if anybody went on but nope. Now the server is always full. Maybe not always but most of the time. But I never can get in sadly. More slots maybe? Simple, you have done an amazing job on this server so don't rush the updates! You've done enough.

    Maybe even have an option to buy in-game money? Keep it at steep prices though to stop pay to win...

    Hmmm.... In all honesty, paying for money or actual items that give you a huge benefit isn't the best idea IMO...
    Maybe it would work, but who knows?

    I've got a few suggestions.,..

    I wouldn't really like an option to buy in-game money.

    Absolutely disagree, people are going to spend money EITHER way just to get a one up on somebody. Cosmetic items only please.
