Is Isotrident Down?

Postby Archimedes » Tue Sep 25, 2018 3:36 am

I was away from Isotrident for a week or so and now today I can't load the website. I've tried it periodically throughout the day with the same result: https://www.isotrident.com/ doesn't seem to lead anywhere. Are other people having the same problem?

The owner/admin took Isotrident down, presumably for good. Reason unknown, but it wasn't the first time.

If you have an itchy finger, watch this space, or, even better, this (or this space), there are games that occasionally start.

There is also another web longturn server owned/admined by another group at https://www.freecivweb.org/ and they usually communicate through Discord. If you wish to connect, there is a number of servers, but this one is a good start. Ask for others or check the "other servers" channel.

Thank you for all those resources! I have a schedule that makes longturn multiplayer games difficult though, often going a week or two with no time to log in. I just played single-player games on Isotrident, which allowed me to access my saves from multiple different computers and locations. I loved the old Freeciv-web for the same use.

Ah, got it. Anyway, I THINK the FreecivWeb crew is trying to get the single games running, but I'm not sure. Hopefully it will become available eventually.

But if you ever get the chance, be sure to try out LT. It's a game, but also a social event :)

I'm sorry to hear it that Isotrident is gone.I would love to be able to play singles games again. I haven't tried Long Turn yet but would like too.

Next LongTurn starts in roughly one month. Visit longturn.org for updates.
