    The new site has been under heavy DDoS attack since it was launched and periodically it does go down for a couple of hours (if that) at a time. Yesterday's outage was particularly long; it's back up now. But we are in the process of moving to a new web host that will work with us to deflect the attacks rather than keep shutting us down for excessive bandwidth usage like the current one is doing. I'm afraid the outages will continue for that reason and to facilitate the shift to the new web host for another week or two and ask that players who need us please be patient. :)

    Right... So if NRaas Mod Updater will no longer be working, then how the f am i supposed to effectively keep installed mods up to date?

    You might check on the Update History page occasionally to see if there have been any new releases. Development is stalled right now anyway because our developer/webmaster hasn't figured out how to clone himself into two different people and just doesn't have time for both.

    The Mod Updater tool was designed specifically for Wikispaces' environment. It needs to be redone for the new one, and will be sometime in the future. I'm very sorry, but we did not arrange for our former hosts at Wikispaces to go out of business just to make things inconvenient for you or anyone else. It's been a hassle for us as well, and that's putting things mildly.

    We would be happy to help with that, but support for the mods is provided at NRaas. Our main message board is called Chatterbox and we also have one for Installation Help. Either one is fine to use, free registration is required to post. :)

    Downloads have been working on our site since the day we moved, Oct 1, 2018. Except of course when the entire site was not stable and totally unreachable at times due to what were incessant Denial of Service attacks, but we've changed web hosts and fixed that months ago.

    Perhaps you could bring the download issues you are having to us at NRaas so we can help over there? There is a forum board specifically for Site Help and Feedback. Getting the exact wording of the error you are getting and on which exact files (over there, I mean) might help too.

    Hi. I get a network error message when trying to update to Mover, once read, Once read Tablet works though. Overwatch gives me an error too. As does Portrait panel, saver, story progression, and a whole bunch more that give me errors when I try to update them.

    Did this just happen a short while ago? Our developer was doing some work on the site's server and needed to reboot it. Everything was down for around ten or fifteen minutes but seems to be operational again, including downloads.

    If that's no help, I would ask if you could please bring the issues to our attention over at NRaas, on the Site Help board.

    I typed my comment above as I was updating the mods for my game so I wouldn't forget which mods were giving me problems.
    I'll look again to see if any of them have different dates from the ones I have and update them if they do.

    I just checked. I'm still getting a network error when I click on the button that says version on it.

    How do I know which dates on my mods are too old? I have some that say 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018. Can I still play with them even though the dates go back that far? I can't put a picture in here so I can't show you what I'm talking about.

    @simgirl542 - I didn't understand where you were getting the error. The download button is to the right of the one that says Version on it. The Version button doesn't do anything currently, it's supposed to trigger the display of release notes but those are not yet available on the new site. The version number is already displayed on each mod page.

    We can't really go by dates because the mods have been updated at all different times though their evolution. What you can do is examine a script log that produces a list of all of your NRaas mods (among some others) at the end and compare the version numbers you have to those that appear on the right sidebar of every page (in full-sized browser windows). Or you could use Overwatch to show all of them for you in-game by way of NRaas > Overwatch > Version.

    This isn't really a help thread though, this was an announcement about the site move. I'm going to have to again suggest you bring questions like this to us at NRaas if the above doesn't give you the info you needed.
