When is the Oceanic ICE server being purchased?

0

I heard that there is a plan to finally buy and support an oceanic ICE server so that all of the aussie guys stop getting hosed by massive packet loss in half of their games.

When is this server going to be operational?

Who told ya that mate

I think nobody said such a thing apart from "if we had one we could add it to the list". And that the ICE Adapter needed an update so that it does not pick the first one from the list but the closest one. @Geosearchef might have done that already🤔

I swear I saw the same thing on the Discord...

What would be involved? Something that could be financially supported by donations from the Oceanic community?

Not to sure, maybe somebody that's sets it up. @Brutus5000 / @Geosearchef probably would need to answer this.

ICE server?

I guess the FaF modders don't bother with the technical support forums anymore haha. 😉

We don't give estimation dates on anything.

Please correct me if I am wrong @Brutus5000 but I'd say the only thing that would help would be find somebody that is pretty skilled and does it 🤔

We probably lack the right guy to do it. It would need somebody that is able to:

  • Read into existing python Lobby Server code and Java ICE adapter code to potentially debug stuff
  • Be able to set up a server and configure it
  • Knows at least basics about networking and reads a little about ICE protocol
  • Has a lot of patience in asking community members in how stuff works and in requesting setting changes on the main server

v1.2.0-RC3 adds a new ICE Adapter version, which connects to the closest TURN Server. Which means Australians get connected to an australian Server and most others stay on the German one. Please test:

This is great news. Looks like the times of AUS being cut off from the rest of the FAF community are coming to a close!

Edit: Is there a way we can get a setting to force what turn server we are using? I'm up in SK and would benefit greatly from using the AUS turn server instead of the german one.

No. The ice-adapter will automatically choose a server for you based on your latency.
