In my previous post about the new Launch Pad host site, I said I was going to move all the existing "dantom" users over, but I just realized I don't want to do that. There are cases of multiple accounts belonging to the same person, and it just makes things harder to keep track of.
So I am asking all people who are currently using the "dantom" host server to try out the Blast Off BYOND offer, using the official BYOND key that you want your site to be registered under. And if you already have a host site but you still had some things lingering at the old site, please move them over now. The files should still be accessible in case you lost them...
The new server is at the URL byond://launch-pad, but you will have your own domain, which means that your worlds will be accessible under byond://your-key, which points to the real address byond://launch-pad/your-key. You only need to use the launch-pad directly when uploading/downloading files, and I'm about to turn on an even slicker interface to that.
This is not a gimmick to squeeze money out of you. After four months, if you choose to discontinue, there will be no hard feelings, so you really have nothing to lose. And keep in mind that distributing your games through the hub is absolutely free (whether you choose to make it free to players or not), so if centralized hosting is something your game can do without, you can save yourself a few dimes.
