The main problem with the status page is, and this no critic, i love your work for the community, that it shows the status from the asking server of yours to the route of 3DX.

This is the status of one provider, one IP and one point of the internet.

Everyone here has different providers, different IP, Firewalls, anti-virus solutions and and and whatever more.

A local tool to check the status from where the user are ... would be more helpful .. just my two cent ;)

I see your point, especially looking at the recent latency and disconnect issues. However this is unfortunately not possible. Will become too technical to explain, but it's much more than just a regular ping that can be sent from a computer.

The current status site answers the question: Is it down for me, or is it down for everyone. Because if my status page captures problems, everybody will have them. But if my status page is all green, it's not a 100 % guarantee you'll be able to log into world without issues.

I created a status website for the 3DXChat servers. It automatically updates every 5 minutes, and it'll tell you the actual server status without the hassle. @Gizmo I hope you're OK with thi

We will inform you about the server launch. This utility does not display the real situation, but it looks cool

There are tools already publically available that can track the path from your own computer to a target site...all the hops and response times encountered, or blocked, etc and some even show it graphically on maps. They are called internet root tracking/tracing tools.

I gave @Jannick 's comment some thought and I think I came up with something. Now live! (in beta though)

Today's changes

The self test is based on the requirements mentioned here. All the tests happen on client side, so the results are realistically from your system towards the servers.

Just released:

    - One hour before the maintenance window start, the yellow icon will show
    - When there's an outage during a maintenance window, it gets marked as planned

Something that I planned of adding too, is an automatic conversation to your local time. But running into some issues, will add that soon!

Today's changes in the Discord bot:

  • If multiple servers go down at the same time, just one combined message instead of separate ones (thanks @Feuermond for the idea ❤)
    (This should solve the problem with the order of down and up status messages that happened lately)
  • Status messages for US game server problems

Colin ... I am a professional developer at a major aerospace company... If you came to us and showed us this application... you would not make it to the door without a job offer in your hands.

If you see me in the game... simply say raincheck.  I will take it from there.
