View Full Version : greatergreen.com Server Going Offiline

04-22-2006, 12:47 AM
I have decided to take down the IL2 server. It has been a lot of fun running the server, and I think this game is one of the greatest flight sims we have ever seen. However, I have moved on to other interests, and simply do not have the desire to maintain or fund this server any longer. I would like to thank everyone who helped me to run this server, and make it a fun place for people to fly and make friends. I have made many good friends through this server, and I feel very fortunate to have been a part of this.

I will continue to support FBDaemon as best as possible. And greatergreen.com will continue on. And who knows, maybe the next Maddox sim will get me back into this. But for now, it's bye to the gg flight sim server (I'll still be around though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif ).

A special thanks to Oleg and 1C for their continued support for this game. It's certainly one of the very best supported games I have ever seen.

Thanks again guys!

I am very sorry for that, te Greatergreen server has some of the best maps around, it's largely better than lots of others (if not the best), I hope this decision can be reconsidered

greatergreen cemented my love for this sim, showed me the way the game should be played. Had some great times on there, thanks for everything Sammie.

Thanks for your great work with and support for FBDaemon.

That's a pity. GG was the only server that I ever actually enjoyed playing on.

Salute! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/clap.gif

Your server was the first one I learned to fly on. It started my addiction to the game.

Thanks for the Fish! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Time for a sig alteration. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Thanks for everything Sammie. As a frequent flier on the old GR-142 server and an initial member in The greatergreen Daemons (=TgD=), I must say this is a sad day. The server population has been thin though and the scattered members have found many new interests. Life goes on and I for one feel to be better as a result of my experiences with you and the gg server.

Thanks Sammie. You're a real class act. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I remember GreaterGreen as the server that was on everyones lips when i first started flying. It was always so popular. Shame to see it gone really, thanks for doing it for so long, it takes a good person to do something like that http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Best wishes in anything else you do!

I'm sorry to see it go. It had some of the best map rotations around. One of the maps offered IAR 81 a/c as flyables--the only server stateside to do so (at least that I'd found). It really offered much needed variety. Thanks for running and administering it.

Sad - i haven't had much time to fly anymore lately - but I used to fly on greatergreen every night for close to a year last year.

Thank you so much for maintaining a great server and hope to get together again for the next flight sim!

Very Sad day indeed http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif Thanx for the great server & FBDaemon, you've been among the greatest contributors to this sim. For soo many years Sammie, Thanks again http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

GG was the only server I really wanted to play in. It will be sorely missed.

On behalf of the F19 Virtual Squadron, Ob, Olli72, AgaOdorox etc, I want to direct a huge thank you to you and everybody who has contributed for hosting the Greatergreen server. From the year we started and forwards, for us it was the natural place to fly together, with great missions and good friends.

With the server, and the FBD, you set the standard..... All the great servers up runnig now are all in debt to you.

Cheers, and as they say .. welcome back soon http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Aye, greatergreen rocks. It chucked me into the deep end of online gaming when I first got merged up. Thank you very much mate! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Thanks for all your efforts and financial backing over the years Sammie. I know many folks got a lot of enjoyment from the GG server. As you say, maybe you'll be back when the next gen of flight sims arrives.

I took off for the first time there, never even bothered to try offline flying. I got hammered for a month straight by VF-51 Dart only to exact my revenge in a climbing LAGG at 4k a year later.

Flying with TgD and the GG regulars was a blast, thanks.

Great memories, great maps and great pilots. see you in BOB!!!

Sad day indeed. Thanks for all you've done for this community and for running one of the all time best servers.

S! Gate, I remember those days...and I remember when you started giving out as good as you got. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Spent many hours on greatergreen and met some very nice people there, I still fly with. Pitty it's closed.

First off I want to say thanks to Sammie for the years he has given this community in the way of the GreaterGreen server and the FB Daemon and Stats. Many of us started our online venture on GreaterGreen and had one hell of a good time. The time and devotion that Sammie put into the community is commendable.

It's sad to see this fine server go offline, but every good thing comes to an end. It just makes room for the next best thing . With that said I do have an offer for the members of the GreaterGreen Community.

It is my understanding that the maps on the GreaterGreen server were primarily created and maintained by the GreaterGreen community. So for the most part, the maps are in need of a place to be hosted and played. Am I correct in this assumption?

Currently I am in the process of placing a new server into a datacenter. I would be more then happy the run the GreaterGreen Server off of this new server. There will be some financial responsiblity in doing this, please understand that putting servers into a datacenter is not a cheap venture. But I can certainly tell you this, the cost of this per month will be less then what most of us spend on a night at a movie and a nice dinner. The server should be online in 2-3 weeks. It would be up to Sammie if the server could continue to use the GreaterGreen name. I am only offering to host the dedicated server and the stats on my server. Maintaining and Admin-ing the Dedicated server will be up to the party or parties involed.

If anyone is interested, you can either email me:
sparx -at- war-clouds.com ( replace the -at- with @ )

or you can find me most nights on WarClouds Teamspeak Server pass: warcloudsrox

I would hate to see this Legendary server just disappear, so I would like to do what I can to keep it alive and kicking.


04-25-2006, 01:32 PM
Thanks for the kind words.. it's a compliment to GR142, TgD, and all the guys that made this server a fun place.

Sparx, I'll reply to you on my forum.


04-25-2006, 01:45 PM
Not to go off-topic (sorry, showed up to the game too late to play on greatergreen)... but anybody know what happened to that AFJ server?

It was a nice place to get my head busted while in training and I never got kicked from there due to ping like I do with other servers.


04-26-2006, 05:46 AM
Many thanks from me as well Sammie. Your server contained my two favorite words...Anapa Offensive. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Lots of fun. Good memories. S!
