New Downtime Procedure

After the incidents of downtime which occurred during round 19 the PATeam has drawn up the following downtime procedure. This procedure will be available permanently on the portal.

Downtime Procedure

Scheduled downtimes:
The community will be informed in advance via the portal, forums, topic of #planetarion and the MOTD. The game will be left as it is, no fleet recall, no donations, no rollbacks, etc. The game will restart at the same time it was taken down. In the event of extended downtime the round may be extended at the discretion of PATeam.

Unscheduled downtimes:
If only one tick or less is affected there will be no rollback.

If the game is down for two ticks or more there will be a rollback to the last accessible tick, and there will be a full fleet recall. Ticks will restart 24 hours after the time of the last good backup to ensure all players in all timezones have a fair chance. The game will be inaccessible during the 24 hour period.

Announcement of Unscheduled Downtime:
In the event of any unscheduled downtime affecting two ticks or more a member of PATeam will make an announcement detailing when the game will restart and if possible explain the reasons for the downtime.

NetGamers Downtime:
In the event of an extended period of downtime with the NetGamers service the PATeam may take the decision to halt ticks and close the game until NetGamers comes back online.
