Thanks for being patient everyone, I know we are frequently hitting our max players on all the SMP servers. The reason we haven't launched smp5 yet is because we reached a few limitations. We need to expand the EMC platform to more physical dedicated servers in order to support more game servers. This isn't as simple as just adding more physical servers because of the unique nature of the EMC platform (all the integrated server stuff). I finished talks with the hosting company and they are preparing the proper setup so we can expand properly. Hopefully smp5 should be in about a week (by next weekend, not this weekend).Another piece of good news is that I have been consulting with a systems administrator that specializes in high performance Java servers. I believe we will be able to get even better performance out of the servers and we will be testing a few tweaks with smp5.Thanks everyone and happy mining!
