Script Managers Updated

We’ve replaced our 5 year old script monitoring system and are experimenting with a more efficient, less resource-intensive solution.

The new system now monitors your CPU time as well as memory, and the current limits may vary while we establish a suitable fair-use policy. Please let us know if you have any problems!

Ongoing Gift Bot Problem

Alethia Island has been a target for scammers that have been attempting to distribute free “gifts” to users at the sandbox.

The accounts are named to suggest they are a gift delivery service, and will arrive at the region briefly to collect a list of users before sending a copy of the object to everyone. The gift usually claims to offer a discount or cash alternative, and requests debit permissions as soon as you try to use it.

We understand that it can be easy to accept items when you are busy unpacking your purchases. Please be cautious and decline any free gifts that you are given unexpectedly. Please remember, as stated in our rules, we do not send free gifts to any of our users.

We apologize if you’ve been affected by this issue while using our sandbox.

Teleporters Updated

We’ve recently updated and improved our teleporter system!

As many of our users may have discovered, our old system had developed some issues that made it painful and inconvenient to use. The teleporters would sometimes not function at all during periods of lag or maintenance, and had become extremely unreliable over the years that they had been working.

We have now completely rewritten the system and changed the way that the teleporters work without changing how they are used. We are confident that this update has eliminated the issues, however if you do still have problems please let a member of staff know and we’ll fix them as soon as we can.
