Lobby server down?

Is anyone else having problems connecting to the main lobby server recently? It appears to be down, the backups are running though.

It's got awards, it has Nubtron for help. It only needs slight modifications to get what se5a wants for BA.

Re: BA DSD why it works, how it is good and you getting over it.

can we implement medals and awards? and maybe limit starting points of new people to a couple of specific spots on a map? the medals and awards would be simple task/mission orientated things: have x metal/s and y energy/s within z time frame. build x number of y units in z time frame. build a mine ...

Re: Stuxnet Drama!

Now if you doubt that such stupidity exists, how about entering a "security releavant" local facility and...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

The buffers needed are for some hours only (to compensate wind fluctuations etc). Atm there is only 1 way to store really much energy: in hydrogen. But that is kind of to dangerous in most places and has (should?) never been done at that scale. It's really clean ("green") though. There are plenty o...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

It's not like Germany wants to replace all its power plants - just the nuclear ones! So why not shut down the coal plants instead? Coal power has been proven to chuck up tonnes of CO2, SO2, cause acid rain, puts mercury in the atmosphere, thorium and uranium... It's a disaster. If Germany decided t...

You must be some seriuos power gamers if you use 1.8 MW :lol: I'm talking about powering entire countries, not a single house. A small proportion of the community changing their houses to renewable power from solar PV and wind turbines does not affect the massive CO2 emissions caused by burning coa...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

Wind mills are cheap. Get together with some people, buy a wind mill and find a company that puts it on some crop field, never ever pay for electricity again. Except when the wind dies down, or you need reliable fixed-frequency, fixed voltage AC and the variability screws it up. And windmills aren'...

Only if you want the rest of the Middle East to whinge and moan 24/7 about it. Remember when Israel bombed that Syrian reactor? And the Iraqi one? You're not really friends of the atom :P

Re: Decline in the number of players

I had a couple of games earlier today on a BA DSD autohost, and people were quite happy when the map was changed to Tabula and Tangerine. I think the issue is that a small minority of people play BA DSD exclusively, and the rest of the BA players play on it because no-one will join a different serve...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

if an event like Fukushima occurs to a reactor the most likely outcome is that after shutting the plant down safely the reactor in question will be decomissioned. That money comes out of the decomissioning fund. That's what happens with the reactor. Who pays for relocating all the people in the now...

Also: a technology that means catastrophy when there is a natural event or a human makes a mistake - totally safe. Everything is risky. Nuclear power has a very low risk. Remember that Risk = Probability of an event occuring * severity of event Fun fact: it has become public, that there is a secret...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

Note that they didn't sustain injuries from the radiation, too. Workers at the plant had _direct_ contact with heavily contaminated water - they had heavy burns from the radiation, I guess cancer is knocking on their door now. Have some numbers and facts, too. http://www.phyast.pitt.edu/~blc/book/c...

Re: Germany shutting down nuclear reactors

Same thing that happens when you try to blow up some cylinders of concrete. It's a shitty terrorist target - if you want to take out a power station, go for the transmission lines or switching yards. If you want to cause terror, go bomb an airport, train station or stadium.
