About Maintenance



General information on maintenance: 

We regularly maintain the game's servers to improve performance, fix issues and increase capacity for more players.


Here's what to expect during such a maintenance period:
  • 16 minutes before maintenance starts, you will start seeing an in-game message and countdown timer.
  • The countdown timer is meant to help you avoid situations where you could lose ships while the servers are offline. Make sure you retreat your ships from combat before the timer expires. 
  • During the countdown period, you cannot start new Red Stars. You should also be careful with existing Red Stars - if using a lot of Red Star extenders, it's possible the maintenance could start with some of your ships still in the Red Star. 
  • During the last 8 minutes of the countdown, you will also be unable to start searching for a new Blue star.
  • The actual maintenance will usually only bring the game offline for less than 5 minutes. An exception is when doing maintenance during an app update - those maintenances will usually take 10 minutes to an hour.
There is no pre-set maintenance schedule, they are done as needed. Historically we've done about 1-2 maintenances per month.

When a maintenance is underway, we will always post more info on the top of this post, including estimated downtime. A link to this post will be available from within the game during the maintenance window (click the maintenance message, then More Info to see the cause of the maintenance and expected downtime).

  1. Hi Hades Star team,

    Is there any planned major updates in the upcoming months for the fans to expect? E.g. new game play, corp pvp (contesting star systems), etc?

    Or in the long run there will only be higher RS and cerebus units? So this game is basically final? No more expectations for the fans to anticipate?

    2. I'd hope there would be more than just higher RS and new cerb ships, otherwise the game would flatline.

      Hi Andreas, for an app to go from a fun time killer (until bored) to a self sustaining entity, you need a world for the players to invest themselves in. That means story aspects for the RPGers, auctions for the MBA gamers, arenas or 'Gray Space' where pvp is possible with rewards to draw out our gladiators.

      You've got the 'gentrifyers' satisfied with the ability to cultivate the star system free of griefing and pvp, but expand it. Add flavor options that let a player truly make the system their own, and you've got people hooked for years at least. :)

    3. I'm a gentrifier. I don't need to rename everything, and I'm not sure what my options would be, but yes, I'd love to personalize my little yellow star system. :)

  13. Hi Hades Star team,

    Is it possible to have an option in the miner setting to toggle between Auto mining and manual mining? Manual mining will only mine the current sector until it's filled and not return to any planet.

    This will be extremely helpful when people try to build up their hydrogen fields without accidentally mining unintended fields.

    Please.

  15. Have you ever thought about dual weapons slot? one for long range weapons and one for short range. This would make the ws and rs battle even more challenging

    ReplyDelete

    ty for all

  18. Love the new update. Problem is we are leveling the Flagship blindly we have no idea what is next or what some of the mods do. Is there a guide for the Flagship?

  19. Will this patch change actual White Stars during gameplay?

  22. Finally we'll see if this update makes or breaks Dart. Sadly I fear it'll be the latter, but fingers crossed!

  23. I admire your work, this project is special, I played it for a while, I never had any problems, well, like every game, several players always want to change their names, the game provides the name change only once, an event should be added , or a new way to change the name in exchange for crystals, both in the players we win and you will win something, $$, everything I expect from the game and that one day he will add a new way to change the name, sometimes mistakes happen and the name can go wrong! add a new way to change the name in exchange for crystals! and fair right?

  24. I think a more diverse way of earning credits would be cool like trading or being able to deliver certain objects that have a credit value in a diplomacy
