    Yearly Server Costs Pool

    Hey all!

    We're running a pool for our yearly server costs.

    Any amount helps really, as we want to keep NC Free and open for all! Currently we have been footing the cost ourselves but would like some help with this as we are adding some new internal servers to help with development and patching

    https://www.paypal.com/pools/c/81g59i0wse

    Any amount helps!

    We host the gameserver on Google Cloud. For safety and security reasons we would never host this with a community member. Unfortunately the biggest cost on that is the Windows OS. NC Currently requires Windows to run its server. Hopefully that will change someday.

    Otherwise, we have our development servers and the such that don't really use THAT much for resources, but still cost a penny or two.

    We are looking for this to be the US Based Neocron, however if we have enough players we may expand to the UK and will hit you up

    We have the option to charge, but choose not to. There is no point in charging a population this low.
