The Bad News
Unfortunately due to time constraints and monetary issues, the racing program will have to be discontinued, at least for now.
It may possibly be picked up again in the future, but Kilo and I neither have the time or the money to continue it for now or for the foreseeable future.
We are planning on selling the beetle and the engines, however if we cannot find a buyer (or buyers) and get back what we put in to it, we may hold on to the parts for the future.
For now, the website has been deactivated and there will be no further updates.
The Good News
I have rediscovered the community’s twitter account and I plan on keeping it updated as much as I can. In addition, we have decided we are actually going to start doing let’s plays and possibly streaming. I know this has been something that we have planned and announced in the past, but there has never been a concrete plan, there is now. Expect further updates.
We are also planning a community movie night! If you have suggestions for what to watch please head over to our Steam community and let us know!
If you go to the link at the end of this post, you will find ARMA II on sale for any price you want from the Humble Weekly Sale! Beat $6.00 and you get the DayZ mod and ARMA II Gold edition as well! Act quick, the sale is only going on for a week!
ARMA II is a military simulator and is a game widely played in the KT community. Members: if you don’t have this game, pick up this KT essential now! Guests and prospective members: feel free to pick up this staple of our community today! Remember, the sale is only active from today (Jan 16th 2014) until next Wednesday (Jan 22nd 2014)
Note from Kilo__: I will be purchasing extra copies of this game. If you want/need this deal, I will be saving keys. Please get in contact with me to get these from me.
Due to our host moving datacenters our teamspeak server will be down temporarily for a few hours. A back up server is being set up, and as soon as an IP is available for that server it will be posted here.
Sorry for the inconvenience
EDIT: The Main server is up. Please connect to it.
In the next few weeks we will be unveiling a new project that myself (tkmr) and another member (Kilo) are working on.
We are really excited about it, and we hope you will be too. It’s going to be a lot of work, fairly expensive, and a hell of a lot of fun.
We are proud to announce our brand-new DayZ and Terrafirmacraft servers!
DayZ Server is called [UK] Tea and Crumpets [Private Hiv, Vet, GMT -10] 126.96.36.199 – hosted by Tsohost.com. If you cannot find it in the server browser you can remote connect with the IP: 188.8.131.52 and using the default port (2302). As you could probably guess, the server is running on it’s own private hive!
We also put up a server for the Minecraft mod Terrafirmacraft, with Smart Moving. The IP address is 184.108.40.206:25571.
Our Tech minecraft server will be moved to this box some time in the near future.
Our host for Teamspeak and Minecraft has discontinued the lease on his server. Backups have been made, and Teamspeak has been moved to a new server. Minecraft will be down for some time, however.
If you cannot connect to the TS server using the subdomain ts.kilo-tango.net, connect to odd-sock.co.uk. The DNS has been changed to reflect the IP change, but will take some time to propagate.
Kilo-Tango has purchased the domain http://kilotango.net to make it easier to access. You no longer need the hyphen!
Our Minecraft server has also been updated. With the release of the 1.8 update and many new features, including a new map generation system, we wanted to generate a new world. Over the next month or so we will be splicing some of the biggest projects from our previous world into the new one (such as the amazing Battleship created by Aur0ra145 and InsertEvilLaugh). The server was also updated with the pre-release of 1.9.
We have finished switching server providers and should not have any more scheduled downtime.
On a much lighter note, Craig (Alpha) has arrived in America, and our roadtrip officially begins on Monday! We will be keeping you updated on our travels throughout the roadtrip. I will also add all of our stops to a google calender, and post a public link! If you would like to keep up to date with us you can check our twitter feed (twitter.com/ktcommunity), watch this blog for updates, or check the forums!
Our current hosting company was just bought out by a different hosting company. We will be retaining the same server, but have a different IP address. Nothing else will be changing other than the downtime while the hosting company moves our box.
Mojang has updated Minecraft to version 1.4 beta, and introduced tameable wolves!
The server will be updated by later today.
