Terraria - Rise of the Beast


#1

And the great beast rose from its slumber, ready to take on the world again, but so to are those who stopped it.

Terraria has always been one of the favorites of The Sentinel Alliance (I cite the fact that most TSA Core members have at least over 100 hours playtime) which is one of the reason that this will be the second event in the TSA weekly events. This event will not be more free style than the Gmod one and will not have any sort of challenge, however we will be having regular fights vs 100+ Eyes of Cthulhu in space (and fighting 100+ Eyes of Cthulhu in space is something every person must at some point in their life try).

There are house, sign and chest protection systems in this server however to prevent abuse you must post a reply to this thread with your Terraria character name and I will add you to the group that can use them. You will also stand out from the crowd with lovely [color=#FFD700]gold[/color] colored in-game chat messages.

[size=large]What happened:[/size]
At some time last night for some reason currently unknown to me the map reset it’s self back to before we built anything. I have tried lots of things as as far as I can see I can’t recover the map:
[list]
[]Server logs don’t show any error.
[
]Program runtime logs don’t show any error.
[]Server backup system for some reason only shows backups of the map before we built anything.
[
]Checks for deleted files shows that no map files were either deleted or recoverable from before this disaster.
[/list]
[size=large]What we lost:[/size]
[list]
[]All of the structures that we built (ice cave, the vault, spawn house, sky bridge, etc).
[/list]
[size=large]What we didn’t lose:[/size]
[list]
[
]Our Inventories - Thanks to server side inventories all items the players had on their person are stored in a different file to the main world one and will still be there.
[]Our Items - Thanks to the chest protection plugin all chest item data was stored in a separate file and can be recovered with all items intact.
[/list]
[size=large]Precautions I have taken to make sure this never happens again:[/size]
[list=1]
[
]I have verified that server backups are actually working now and should be backing up the server hourly.
[]I will manually take a copy of the world data using Terraria’s WorldEdit plugin daily for the next few days.
[
]I have setup an external script to backup all server/world files daily.
[*]I will copy all server files to my computer daily for the next few days.
[/list]
[size=large]Moving forward:[/size]
It’s awful that this happened but it could have been much worse. If this had happened later on before we were able to make precautions (as stated above) we would have lost a lot more for example. There’s not much more I can do to help except from getting us back some of the building resources we used. However on the bright side: we have a new world filled back up with ores to mine again and we can try and build things even better now then we did before.

I started rebuilding the ice base last night from nothing but an accidentally taken screenshot, so far I think it’s going quite well.
