Announcement - Official AEM Dedicated Game Server
« on: August 03, 2013, 01:27:11 PM »





8/03/13 -We are happy to announce the new official AEM dedicated game servers offering. Bringing AEM members together for an enjoyable North American styled multiplayer farming experience.

8/09/13 -Due to the growing numbers of the player group we have had to upgrade from an 8 slot to a 12 slot server.

8/11/13 -Because of rapid growth of the AEM dedicated server group, we will be adding a second server very soon giving you the option of accessing 2 different games at any time.

8/12/13 -Second 8 slot server added. AEM has 2 multiplayer games running at the same time, giving the members group the choice of 2 different farms to work on.

As a service to our valued members, AEM will be operating dedicated FS13 game servers that you can acquire a slots via donation to AEM, to join with other forum members, mod makers and AEM staff for continuous online multi-player farming action anytime 24hrs. a day, 7 days a week.


What is the Dedicated Game Server?

The dedicated game server is an online multi-player game that can run continuously 24hrs a day and be accessed by a group of players at their convenience. There can be up to 16 players on at one time or you can be on by yourself. All players work the same farm (save game) and can come and go as their time permits. All working together as a team to complete various farming operations.

What are the Benefits of Joining the AEM dedicated  server group?

  • We do all the set-up and organizing work! All you have to do is join, and start farming.
  • We acquire the servers, recruit the players, organize the games, maps and mods and take care of all the forum posts required to advertise the games and find players to fill the slots
  • We pay the larger dedicated server fees, all you have to pay is the lower monthly fee for your individual slot. Meaning, if you don't like it, or you get tired of it, you are out a lot less of your expense.
  • We include access to our AEM Team Speak server to use for in game voice communication while playing.
  • Once a server starts getting full of players, AEM will purchase additional slots up to 16 players, and/or additional servers giving your more options for maps to play on. All servers will be included with your single slot purchase.
  • Our server is located in the continental U.S. giving us great internet connections with super fast loading and synchronization.
  • The dedicated server games run much smoother than games hosted by individual players causing much less lag.
  • We may offer sneak previews and early releases to maps and mods only on the dedicated servers prior to them being available for download on the websites.
  • There may be opportunities for map makers to hold multi-player testing of their maps on our server
  • Opportunities for members to have their save games hosted on the server to get help with harvests or other tasks
  • Polls on the AEM forum to determine which maps and mods will be hosted on the server
  • Forum Topics for each server to share what is happening on the farm so workers know what jobs need to be done when joining the game
  • 16 players on large 16x American maps working with the latest equipment to complete massive harvests!
  • Fun, Fun, Fun!

What are the Donation requirements for Server slots? How can I Join?

1 Server Slot Access/1 Month = $5 - As of 8/14 we are only accepting 6 month donations
1 Server Slot Access/6 Month = $25* (Maximum available at this time)

*Any donation over $25 will be considered a donation to the AEM website for the use of covering site hosting costs.
** Please contact Slopoke7166 or BigCountry if you would like to discuss donating a complete server group, giving you administrator rights over that server to choose what games, maps and mods are run on it and also giving you access to our resource power: group of players, advertising, forum topic, and management of that server.

You can acquire your server slot by clicking the donate button located on the bottom of the Forum home page or the Dedicated Server Forum Page of the AEM website and submitting your information and payment. Please use your AEM screen name when purchasing and for accessing the multi-player server.


There is also an AEM website Donation button located on the Home page. These donations are for appreciation of the site and larger donations may include a portion to cover server access. PM an AEM Administrator for more details.


If you have any questions, Please post them in the forum below and we will be happy to provide further details. If you've already decided you want to sign up and have questions about the donation process, please send a PM to BigCountry or Slopoke7166.

We will do our best to quickly process your donation within 24 hrs. (usually less) and grant you access to the server and special member's group of the forum. Donation access will begin by 8/5/13 or sooner.

We are not responsible for you not being able to access our server or having a poor connection due to your internet service. If you have trouble playing multi-player using Giants standard MP servers due to internet speeds you may not have any better luck with this service. Donations are non refundable for this reason. If you do not have a good internet speeds then this service is probably not for you.



- Join in on the fun! -

AEM has 4 Dedicated Servers online 24/7
&
For a small subscription fee you can have access to all of them!


Not to mention that you will be helping us out with the costs of the servers and website

- There will tentatively be a free trial period for all members on either 8/4 or 8/5 (tbd). Access will be limited to available slots and first come/first serve.

Picture taken on a break in the harvest action from Saturday evening on the AEM dedicated game server. Slopoke and Farmer12346 are missing from the photo. So far we have 7 people on the server roster for the next 6 months. A second server acquisition won't be far off at this rate.

Our plan is that the server will never fill up, we will purchase an additional server once it starts getting "crowded". This will give you options to play on more than one server as more members join and more servers are added, and the bonus is that it will all be for the same donation amounts, no additional will be required for the duration you sign up for.

That is correct.

Yes. You'll be able to get on whenever you want within the 6 month slot.

As for the mods, we will suggest maps and then everybody will vote. As for other mods, I believe we get to request what we want as well but we all agree by vote or so other fashion.

Yes, if you decide to go with the 6 months slot donation, you will have access 24/7 to the dedicated server for that 6 months. The only time it will be offline is when we are switching, adding or deleting mods and maps.

You will be able to suggest what maps and mods you would like to have hosted on the server. The mods and maps must be MP compatible and and error free. We may make an exception for a mod or two with minor UV errors if the group really wants to use it. What map and mods are used will be decided on by the group. We will do our best to make sure the mods you want are available for some games.

To start off, we will be selecting a few good American maps and some nice large American equipment to get the save games going and more mods can be added once the group agrees on what is wanted.

We currently have 10 players that have joined the dedicated server group as of today 8/5/13 . The most we've had on the server at one time so far is 7. The game has been lag free with no crashes or disconnections related to the server. we are currently using the standard map and equipment and we have A LOT of equipment on the farm.

We expect to either add slots to the current server or acquire a second server within a week if the player roster keeps growing as it has. As the number of players increases, so will our number of servers, which means you will have access to multiple games with different maps and mods.

Sorry Bailey, wish you could join us, it does rely on you having a good internet connection.  :(

Server is still running smooth as we have added the Salem Map and an entire fleet of mods.

Starting to plant some fields.


Breaking ground in newly purchased fields.


Thank's for the help. You're right MP is quite fun. I should have checked this out a long time ago.

I'll have to say that I'm surprised how smoothly it runs with the mods.  Everything ran great with no lag (so far).

I had some lag using the GPS mod planting but I'm impressed how well it worked.  I had more lag last night with no mods than today with many.

More slots always available. Come join the fun.

You do not need the Giants software, it is for installing on the server only, not your home computer, you only need to make the dedicated server donation to AEM to acquire your slot in order to play MP with our group.

The donation amounts are in the first post of this topic. For a 6 month slot you would need to donate $25.00. The donation link does not have the options listed, you need to enter the value yourself. Thanks.

We have plenty of work to do on Salem. The tractors are waiting.

You will get access to an entire section on the AEM forum that has all the topics related to the dedicated server including the rules, game name and password, and links to the mod packs and maps we are currently using.
