I finally bit the proverbial bullet and bought some hosting. I also thought of a new name for the game. Here's the info:

New name: Divided Galaxy
URL: http://galaxy.dividedgames.com

I moved the database earlier today so any changes past 2:00pm-ish are lost. Other than that, it seems to be working. I deleted all the messages, reports and battles to make it easier to move, but that's not a big deal. I will change the actual name tomorrow and replace the Shining Galaxy graphic. Feedback on the new name is welcome but I don't think I can change it now that I've shelled out the cash.

An issue I've noticed: does anyone find it VERY slow accessing the base page? I know why it's so slow... It's already fixed in version 1.1 but sorry about making everyone put up with that.

Good question.

Host: http://www.dreamhost.com
Details:
1 FREE domain registration
3 full domains, 15 subdomains
2400 MB Disk, 120 GB Transfer
600 Mailboxes, 75 Shell/FTP Users

It cost $100 USD (after tax) for 2 years hosting and domain registration, and my roommate, Smoothius, got a $65 credit for refering me. Not too bad. Let's see how reliable it is.

That's fairly decent.

the guys I just signed up with give me:
3000 mb disk space
150 gb transfer
1 free domain registration for as long as I'm hosing with them (I don't have to pay every year)
unlimited subdomains
I can't remember how many full domains
unlimited mail and FTP
whole bunch of other small things that I don't really care about.
and all this set me back like $215 cnd (160 or so american).
now I just have to get my bloody account info from them (though I think it's my brothers fault that I don't have it)

That's pretty similar... I don't think I'll run into any bandwidth problems and if I do, I'll upgrade to the next package, which is just a couple bucks more...

120 gigs a month should suffice. Average file size is less than 20 kb... That works out to over 6 million hits per month. If there are 200 active people, that's 30000 pages per person, 1000 pages per day per person. Pretty generous.... Could stand to be a bit higher in the future, though.

The reset will be soon but I shouldn't rush it out.

The problem is, as he said before, the changes are incompatible with the current data, so he can not use the current data in 1.1 (so we can't have the changes without a reset).

Yeah, the change and the reset go hand in hand. Version 1.2 (should it be necessary, har har) will likely not require reseting anything.

Yeah, but we're planning on using ours for a web comic, and at 100k per comic, we could be using up a lot of bandwidth.

Yeah, I'm positive Quim won't be running into bandwidth issues anytime soon... 120GB basically means "unlimited" to most hosting companies. (If you actually read their TOS, you'll find that unlimited just means "we don't care unless you start using too much")

I'd be shocked if Quim broke 40GB a month for the first 6 months or so

By the way, Shining Kingdom is now at http://kingdom.dividedgames.com.

And Divided Games has a slick homepage (thanks to Smoothius) at http://dividedgames.com.

Funny you should ask. No, I can't access SK (or DK, I should say) so I can't get the dump.

I just dumped whatever I had on my local DB, which is just the basic tables (towns, etc...) and some test user stuff.

I will hopefully get access to the DB on war3.com and transfer over the user data.

The dynamics of the game should change with version 1.1, so maybe check back in a month and see how things are going.

Sadly, the game can get boring if there aren't any good clan rivalries to fight out, etc... It's a bit of a throw-of-the-dice whether or not the game has lasting replay value. Shining Kingdom was more of a sure thing, as to how long it entertained.

Me and Smoothius are devising a number of tasks, missions, etc... that might spice up gameplay a bit. They'd be in version 1.3 or something. Slave trading, prisoner/scientist transfers, pirate hunting, NPCs, having the empire automatic, etc...

It bothers me that your website uses "addictive" as a complimentary term. It's not that the word is insulting, simply misused. It implies a superficial and insincere agenda. Agenda!

I changed 'addictive' to 'engaging'.

hey in the divided kingdom, you might want to change the title at top so it says divided kingdom instead of shining kingdom
