@karsh: Dang, just when my 4 day weekend starts... But that's probably the right call. Lolmaps and GameZone must do for now.
TrackMania 2 Stadium Server
The VPS provider I've been using for 4+ years is closing their doors soon, so I was forced to migrated to a new host. Don't worry; the TrackMania database is safe.
As I discovered before, most TrackMania server mods are not prepared for PHP 7. Months later, that hasn't changed--they still haven't been ported to PHP 7. But there are some brave people that have created an XASECO2 port that may work on PHP 7. There's also a more modern fork, UASECO, that I had tried briefly and had some issues with. I don't remember what the problem was, but maybe it's fixed now and I'll move everything to UASECO?
I'm in no position to test right now. Perhaps soon. The server will be up sometime before the holidays. Maybe.
Server's up for the weekend, to test stability. I'm not advertising it anywhere but here and the Discord. I make no guarantees of it staying past this weekend.
If all goes as planned, maybe it'll be up more permanently next week. With some fresh tracks and music. And a Discord plugin I may develop as a pet project, because the Discord-IRC-Trackmania thing is a total nightmare and I don't want to do that again.
Maniaplanet 4 is here! And it's.. Kinda messed up! But that's okay, because I think it has enough features to eventually justify its messy launch. Maybe.
Anyways, the server has been updated! It's now kitted with UASECO, a much nicer server plugin forked from XASECO2. And every track has been rebuilt, to fix Maniaplanet 4's current issue of missing track pieces and messed up lighting. It took a rough night, but now it's, dare I say, better?? Except for the possibility that there is no longer an 'unlimited demo' of Stadium Time Attack mode? (I really can't tell what is offered for free anymore, Maniaplanet's new site is also a mess)
@mjhealy: I think the new search doesn't strip formatting from names, so the fancy red/white 'giant bomb' is probably messing with things. Maybe search for 'unofficial classic' or look under USA -> Illinois.
The new browser is extremely bad. It's kinda ridiculous that you can't even view your favorite servers right now.
Glad to see the server up and running again. Been hopping on Stadium here and there and loving it. Here's a few track recs that I feel would fit in with what's on the server now
