Crossfire 2.0 Status update

Today we write the 17th June 2013. Two months till the old CF server will shut down.
As already announced ill let the current hosting contract run out and decide which way we will go in August.

There is clearly the option to host a new server by then and I meanwhile got hands on a single core performance comparison between the old hardware and a possible new rig. Single core because FL is an old game which can only run on one core so renting an hexa core ... octa core server... etc. makes no sense. FL could only use one of the cores while the others wouldnt be used at all.
I can tell you that it is not easy to find such a performance comparision these days as half of the world thinks every problem can be solved with more cpu cores.
However, I have found something that suits our needs. The new Hardware would be more than twice as powerful as our old server and - oh joy - less expensive.
The decision about such a change will fall in August.

What I can not guarantee is that the new Server will come with a new mod.
2 Months is not much time and we still have alot of work to do.
However... I was thinking about renting a low performance server for a few months aswell so we can focus much better on online tests and the work on the server side features.

Well that much about the hardware... but in the end more interesting for you should be what you can expect from CF2.0

I will use this thread to give bit by bit an overview about new stuff and changes we did.
