The updates are:
- tickrate of the server increased from 102 to 128, This has been tested with around 18 players and showed no signs of the server lagging.
- Updated some course maps to their newest version and changed the name of a few others to avoid conflicting with versions that are on other servers which caused an error when a player tried to join our server.
- Added a timer plugin to be used on all course maps
- Disabled Warmup on all maps
- Reduced freezetime to 2 seconds
- Modified CPMenu so that if you teleport the timer will be stopped and reset, You must go to the start zone to restart it.
- Gave SO's permissions to add and delete start and end zones.
How to add a zone to the server:
- type !admin
- Click the Timer Zones category
- Click add zone
- Go to one corner of the start zone
- Right click to save your position
- Go to the opposite corner of the start zone
- Right click to save your second position
- Adjust zones if needed
- Choose start or end
Staff can delete timer records using these commands:
sm_deleterecord_all STEAM_ID Deletes all records from a single person
sm_deleterecord_map STEAM_ID Deletes a single map record from a single person
sm_deleterecords MAPNAME deletes all records for a single map
Players have several of their own commands as well:
!hud shows a customizable hud on your screen:
!r or !restart/!start restarts you at the starting zone with a fresh timer, If you're dead it respawns you and teleports you to the start zone.
!toprecord/ !wr shows the top times for your current map
if the map you're playing has a bonus course you can see the top records by typing !btop or !bwr

-Rank Admin Changes!
Server Upgrade/Change of Host:
We successfully got a server setup in Dallas. Currently this is hosting our Unturned, Minecraft, and some redundant systems for us. Currently, DNS, the site, and Teamspeak are able to be launched from Dallas in the event our primary server is down. I am also looking into getting a vps that we will use as a load balancer for the main site as well as a backup dump for our GIT repo, and our config files. This will allow us to recover from a catastrophic event with minimal down time.
Forum Badge System:
In this Digest we would like to announce our new badge that Camel made for VIPs.
This Badge will be given out to all Current and Past VIPs, so if you have been a VIP before please post Here to obtain your badge.
Don't mind the off-centered-ness 'cause it woulda been uncentered no matter how it was done :c!!!
Name's responsibilities will shift from being a General Engineer to being a Warcraft 3 Engineer due to his specialty in Warcraft 3. Furthermore, Bulletford's responsibilities are shifting from being a Warcraft 3 Engineer to a General Engineer due to the hard work and dedication he has put forth toward improving our servers overall in the past few months. If you see Bulletford, be sure to thank him for his hard work!
Staff felt that the VIP rank had gone in a direction it was never meant to go in and it felt more like friends of staff getting VIP, rather than people who actually deserved the merit-based rank. Staff worked together to change this merit-based rank and send it in the direction we think it should be in, so here are the changes!
First things first, VIP is now a point based rank, meaning no more staff vote, we didn’t like having staff vote for VIP as it kind of took away from earning the rank through doing things that benefited the community.
The way the point system works is as follows…
The minimum amount points a member needs to get VIP is 20, points are recorded in 6 month increments of 6 months, after the 6 month quarter is up, points are added up and everyone who has at least 20 points will earn VIP.
How do you earn points?
Well we have created a list of different things that benefit our community and when you complete one we award you with points.
Now obviously some things should award more points than other things, so we have created a tier’d system….
$100+ Donating= +6
Making a Map= +5
Coding a Server Plugin/Race= +5
Making a model for the servers= +5
$50-$99.99 Donation= +3
Porting a Map= +3
Posting 10 new working maps= +3
Posting a detailed suggestion/idea= +3
Game Server Events= +2 1 DAY EVENT=2 HOUR Minimum WEEKEND EVENT=4 hour Minimum WEEK EVENT=7 hour Minimum
Running Bro Fest= +2 (must be official and log all users who are active for at least 1 hour)
Posting 5-9 new working maps= +2
Posting an outline of a valid idea= +2
Poker Event = +1
Official Bro Fest participation= +1 1 hour minimum (up to whoever is running to record it to be logged for points)
Fixing voting string= +1
Making someone a signature= +1
Posting a working model suggestion for the servers= +1
Posting a new working map= +1
Staff Tenure Section
SO Stepping down +3 (in the period they step down)
Staff Stepping down +5 (in the period they step down)
In order for you to be eligible for VIP, you need to have earned 20 points from at least three items of the list equaling or exceeding 20 points.
*Donations have been restricted to only count as 1 item from the tier system*
The New VIP system starts November 1st, 2014 and ends April 1st, 2015, since we haven’t been recorded any points all current VIP’s will keep their VIP rank, but will be required to meet the 20 point minimum requirement to keep VIP come April.
VIP - Premium+ Admin
VET - Premium Admin
L3 - Basic Admin
L2 - Basic Admin
After we up rank admin it will look like this:
VIP - Premium+ Admin
VET - Premium+ Admin
L3 - Premium Admin

Along with these admin changes we will also be offering a %25 Discount for CS:GO Admin packages to all rank members Level 2-VIP!
This change is a show of appreciation for all of ranked members, Thank you all for sticking with us and we hope you all continue to support sG!

And our new Veteran Members!
We would like to congratulate all of our new members:
ChosenOne2000 submitted two sG related studies while deployed to Afghanistan, The first study generated a manuscript "Online Video Gamer’s Desire for Military Service With and Without Exposure to America’s Army" made it through the second stage of the peer review process of the journal of Games and Culture. However, the manuscript was declined due to low sample size (112 community members). C12K will be making revisions to the manuscript and will resubmit to a different journal Winter 2015.
The second sG oriented study titled "The Hierarchy of an Online Gaming Community: A Study of the Managerial Structure of Syndicate Gamers", was submitted to International Journal of Virtual Communities and Social Networking (IJVCSN). This manuscript has also made it to the second stage of the peer review process and is actively under consideration at this time.
FUTURE ACADEMIC PROJECTS:
ChosenOne2000 is seeking community members who have an interest in cyberpsychology, biomedical ethics, ethics, and/or sports history (football) for future publishing opportunities.
CV/RESUME WRITING AND CRITIQUES
For those who are entering the corporate world, professional workforce, medical field, etc. having a polished CV/resume is a must. C12K is offering CV/ resume writing classes for the sG community. If you already have a CV/resume, share it with others for group feedback. Depending on community interest, the classes will be over X-Mas break (date/time TBD). Those wishing to participate in the exercise are strongly encouraged to create and complete a LinkedIn account.
C12K presented at a hackercon a few years ago and met Winn Schwartau (google him). Winn made a very strong argument that people who are truly computer experts are "unhireable" and here's why:
Hope to see you at the CV/ resume writing class.

Unturned has been off to a great start thanks in large part with the huge support from our community. We have been able to attract tons of regulars who actively play on the server and keep us as the #1 server for the last two months. For the moment the server is still on the stable live branch (2.0) and will be until 3.0 becomes a more complete game. Going forward there will be packages available to purchase for certain perks/kits. Also, there may be a package available to purchase a basic house/s and possible access to a VIP city. Shadow plans on opening a second Unturned server that will either be a gold server or a modded hunger games type server if the first server continues this level of success.
If you wish to be a Junior Admin for Unturned be a helpful, active, and respectful player on the server and you will be asked. From the list of Junior Admins, Server Officers will be selected as the server moves forward.
If you wish to support the server the best way to do this is to vote on the server especially during the first few days of the beginning of a new month. Voting only takes a few seconds just click HERE and sign in through steam and you are done! You can vote once every 24 hours.
Unfortunately, due to the influx of hackers through Unturned 2.0 the server currently requires a whitelist application to be accepted and then the password will be sent through private message. This will all be removed once the server is switched to 3.0 and the server will once again be welcome to everyone and public.
The server will most likely move to 3.0 by mid-end of November.
Once again Jailbreak has had a very consistent amount of players in it. We've managed to stay in the 100th percentile of all CS:GO servers. We still have room for improvement though. I've noticed the kill whoring has gone down significantly, which is awesome. I'd like to focus on having our counter terrorists be more conscious of their microphone, and when its okay to talk. Jailbreak has always had a problem with the warden being talked over, which leads to confusion. Please, if you're a counter terrorist, Make sure you aren't talking over orders.
The Warcraft 3 server has been healthy with activity and the Halloween event makes no exception to that. We’d like to give thanks to BLiNDBoi and our Engineer Team consisting of Thorgot, Bulletford, Skitt, Name and MrCoolness for planning and developing this event. The event ends on November 3rd, so there is still time left to get into the event! Don’t fret the 7 races will be released with a total level requirement after the event is over. Now if you unlocked the races with pumpkins and do not have the total level requirement to play them, do not worry either! You will keep your pumpkins that were used to unlock the races until the next event!
Now then, with this event there are prizes, the top 10 players with the most pumpkins will get a reward. Here is currently what the top 10 looks like, get in there and challenge a ranking within the top 10.
For more details about the event please click here!
Zombie Escape has had a very rough time lately and the population for the server shows it. We have recently added 48 new maps to the server, most of which are replacements to all of the maps that were removed due to the CSGO file size limit. We hope the additions of these maps will bring back some of the people who left our server due to us missing some of their favorite maps. Make sure you keep an eye out for the future events we will be having for Zombie Escape.
The Mini Games server has been doing really well lately, we have recently gained 2 new Server Officers and we hope these two guys can keep the server populated with new players and make sure if any server bugs come up they quickly be reported and fixed.
Piplup has also been planning a Soccer tournament for the future, the event looks really fun and we hope everyone can show up to make our first ever soccer tournament a success!
Make sure you keep an eye out for the event sign ups in the very near future!
The last surf event ran from September 19th to the 21st, some of the winners were, VeXer who placed first in three of the required stats. This winner choose a custom store title, a copy of "The Binding of Isaac Rebirth," and store credits. The other player was ZombieSlayer who placed for most assist, but he never choose a prize, so some of the prizes are being saved for future events. If you find any maps you think would make great additions to the server, please suggest them here, keep an eye out for any future events.
Trouble in Terrorist Town
Custom Trouble in Terrorist Town will be changing. Changing, hopefully for the better, for sG members, current community, and future community members.
With an updated MOTD, we hope to also add an updated map list and sG point store are coming to our TTT custom server.
As usual, with new additions comes a new TTT event. Information for that event will come as soon as possible.
All this and more will be revealed in due time. Thanks for your continued support and if you have any questions please feel free to contact Detective Nom Noms or ZachPL.
Vanilla Trouble in Terrorist Town
Vanilla Trouble in Terrorist Town has been going strong since its birth in the summer, we have had multiple donations towards premium admin and we are continuing to look for more applicants. If you are interested in obtaining premium admin PM ZachPL on the forums. If you are in the clan fell free to contact ZachPL as well as we can always use more active SO's.
A new bonus style has been added due to the request of multiple players, bonus-halfsideways. It's the same as half sideways for the normal timer, but it's now on bonuses as well. A few more maps have been added since the last digest and bonus zones have been added to many maps. If you have any map suggestions for the server send a PM to Blublub with a link to the map. Any other suggestions are encouraged as well, just send Blublub a PM on it.
A huge Thank you goes out to all of our Donors, all donations help sG out tremendously
