Back to streaming coming weekend

    Sorry but I have not been feeling like streaming at all lately. Part of it had to do with doing a lot of coding for the Fun Paradise II server. Coding is pretty boring to watch for most and I can't really concentrate well on it while streaming. Another reason for not streaming was simply because I didn't really feel like it, not in the right mood and winters always get to me (depression). On top of that I caught the flu some days ago and food poisoning with it. Hope I will soon feel better, but I sure will stream no matter what.
    Anyways, been very busy setting up an Economy I had planned for ages. The coding is finally finished and we can soon start up the economy. As soon as Main Purpose has a place for itself and is somewhat organized we will start up with a group build for which every player can earn a starting amount of credits. Main will set up some first shops to set a trend as for prices for items and players will be able to buy shops as well. Can't wait to see how it all works out.
    I have also finished coding the elevators at main spawn, which took a lot more work than expected due to changes in ComputerCraft. I was hoping I could simply copy over the elevators and code, but this would not work anymore. Bundled cables are no longer part of the rednet and the fact I needed wireless modems now changed a lot. Had to completely re-code them from scratch to get them to work with rednet. They seem to be working fine now, apart from some minor bugs sometimes due to unloading chunks even though they are being kept chunk-loaded. The code is even better now, showing elevators that are busy. The code is very clean and easy for adding new floors to them. For those who are interested in using the elevators, feel free to ask for the code Main Purpose will sell. All you need to do is set them up the same way I have done them.
    So woot woot, a lot of hard work finally done, feeling a lot better now and back to streaming this coming weekend. Hope to see you all again, coz I sure missed quite a few of my white-listed players lately. The fact I have not been streaming at all for quite some time most likely has to do with that, although it should not be a reason for not joining. The server is up 24/7 most of the time anyway. Of course I have missed all my viewers as well and I am looking forward to seeing you all soon again ...
