Badlion Client and COVID-19

Hey everyone. I wanted to just give a quick update to the COVID-19 status and how it's affecting Badlion Client. I'm sure everyone is tired at this point on reading emails regarding this topic, so I will do my best to keep it short and simple here.

Recent Downtimes

Cosmetic Outage on March 14th: Lasted 30 Minutes

Last weekend on Saturday in the evening we had one of our servers crash from too high of a user load count. This server hosted several of our services including cosmetics, friends, and more. We had a long time TODO ticket to split this onto separate boxes and just had been pushing it off. On Sunday morning we migrated these services onto individual boxes with more capacity in order to ensure that they remain online and functional during this higher user count period. This will now prevent one service from crashing other services if the load on it becomes too high. Finally get to close that ticket \o/

Client Services Outage on March 17th: Lasted 1 Hour

Within an hour we had spun up two additional servers and raised our capacity limit from 50K up to 74K. We are going to continue to monitor this situation and verify no oth…

We have struggled historically with having enough resources behind this department, so we are formally opening up some job positions for them.

Please note: These positions will be freelancer positions, and these job positions are NOT constant hours. We will make some requests here and there to design or animate some stuff and then we will pay you for the work/time.

Model Designer

The model designer should be very creative in their thinking and have prior experience already making models. The model designer will be given a description of a model or potentially also a sketch of a model and then need to create the model using 3d modeli…
