Quote from: Freahk on June 05, 2021, 10:30:56 PMYou can still ask a friend to take the company over, run it into bankruptcy again, so you can take it over "for free" again.Totally conforms to the rules, still seems very cheated to me...
QuoteCurrently, in my opinion takeovers are broken by design. It shouldn't be possible to generate free money that way.I guess a simple solution to this is adding the start money to the takeover cost.
Quote from: jamespetts on June 06, 2021, 11:08:49 AMUntil that change can be effected, however, I will ask players not to engage in this practice, as it does amount to an exploit. I have made a statement to this effect in the in-game chat and I will modify the written rules to make this clear.
QuoteI will not take action against those who have done this in the past because there may have been some lack of clarity as to the scope and extent of the rule prohibiting playing multiple companies.
Quote from: jamespetts on June 05, 2021, 02:46:53 PMThis map is slightly smaller than the previous map from game no. 3 (May 2020) (7500 x 2100 vs. 8192 x 2560; 212 starting towns vs 274 starting towns), but experience with the previous map suggested that a slightly smaller map is likely to be preferable.This map is slightly smaller than Bridgewater Brunel game no. 3, which may make things easier for those whose ability to play is resource constrained, and also mean that a higher proportion of the map will be connected at an early stage.The computational load of private car route finding has been deliberately reduced by splitting the map into multiple separate islands separated by bodies of water
QuoteThe "observer" role has been reinstated: the default player is now password protected. Players wishing to start a company should select a company other than the default player.

Quote from: Matthew on July 02, 2021, 06:05:31 AMIt appears Bridgewater-Brunel is not restarting each day as it should.The client (downloaded using the Nightly Updater) is #8b9d4c6, which GitHub confirms is the latest build.The server listing and log report #bad0022, which is the build from 29 June.The server log still records my attempts to join on 30 June, which suggests it has missed two restarts.Stephenson-Siemens has updated to #8b9d4c6, so it's a B-B specific problem.
Quote from: jamespetts on July 03, 2021, 01:00:14 PMI have incorporated Ranran's latest pull request and restarted the server - it appears to be running now. Apologies for the downtime.
Quote from: freddyhayward on July 03, 2021, 01:42:33 PMIt still appears to be offline and shows no sign of having restarted at all.
Quote from: freddyhayward on July 12, 2021, 05:26:11 AMThe same has happened again.

Quote from: Matthew on July 12, 2021, 07:15:59 AMWould there be any point in trying to get core dumps from the server, given that the executable doesn't have debug symbols? (By "debug symbols" I mean function names in the backtrace; if that is the wrong term please correct me.)
Quote from: Matthew on August 25, 2021, 08:10:20 PMB-B has been down since approximately 0700 GMT today. I couldn't see any obvious explanation for this in the server log.
Quote from: zook2 on September 29, 2021, 11:15:49 AMServer is down since eight-something this morning.
Quote from: jamespetts on October 21, 2021, 08:37:43 PMNow restarted.
