Increased amount of disconnections due to DDoS activity

It has come to my attention that users on Fodra have been disconnecting more than usual.

Since June 17th and still continuing up until today, the Chicago data center where NFOservers hosts our VDS has been under elevated DDoS attack. NFOservers has insured their customers that they are working on mitigating the attacks and also adding more upstream bandwidth.

In the mean time, if you have difficulty staying connected to Fodra, we'd like to remind you that there ARE two other ships. Auldrant, located in Seattle, and Lumireis, located in Frankfurt, Germany.

Depending on your location, those two ships may not have as good of a ping as Fodra for you, but at least you should have a more stable experience. And, really, PSO isn't a real lag sensitive game anyhow. (Most of the combat is done client sided.)

Please keep in mind you do have other connection options while playing on Ephinea and, by all means, enjoy the game!

Server maintenance completed for June 23rd, 2019

Server maintenance complete for June 23rd, 2019.

Some changes were made to the trade window code. This should fix most problems with the trade window with the exception of when the server and clients are truly out of sync.

Most items that had difficulty trading before should trade without issue now.

If a trade fails and you've already both changed blocks to try again, please let us know.
