[BGN] Eco Alpha Large AUS Server(s) | 50 Players | Dedicated [24/7] | UPDATED Alpha 4!
Hi! We are a group of Aussie gamers that were woefully lacking an awesome Eco server, so we made our own! Hosted in Melbourne, Australia (on our dedicated server machine at a server-hosting place), our server is now monitored 24/7 by our friendly mod @Zenita and our admin team. =)
We encourage people who are playing on our server to join our Discord server and Facebook page (links below) – however if you’re the quiet type, no need! We would love to have more Aussie gamers joining us on our server.

You had me until Discord required. I have no mic.
@Slexlaw I may need to change the wording of that as we only require people to join our Discord due to game server announcements, etc being made in the Text Channels BUT listening/talking in the Voice Channels is optional.

I'm very much new to this game but I am a science teacher at Churchlands Senior and I would definitely like my students to be able to start using ECO.
I had an idea where a pre-polluted ecosystem were to be set up and the students go in to try and reverse the damage.
What do you all think?

@MrCoumbe At the moment the game as been released in alpha testing, full of bugs and balancing issues. So far you can't control the server very much, unable to set up scenarios.
It's a fantastic game and will be a great learning/teaching tool when it's fully released! But you would have to talk to the developers and see how long they think it will be before it would be usable in a classroom environment.
Edit I think I saw an expected timeline somewhere, with beta testing starting next year and full release over a year away? It's got a bit of work to be done :)
@MrCoumbe we would be happy to help in any way we can for the sake of SCIENCE! and my suggestion would be for us to setup a secondary Eco Server focused primarily towards education environments/classrooms :)
Also you're in luck as we just happen to be a bunk of software and game developers who have the Developer Tier for Eco and we may consider helping you build a suite of tools for a educational classroom environment depending on both Strange Loop Games roadmap + our own spare time that we are willing to commit to helping the education sector out.
We welcome our new members and will announce more details regarding the website we have in development once it has been launched.
We welcome @Zenita to our Eco server moderation team :D
I don't really know the controls please help!!!
Oh I saw you on the server, that's a good start!
Tab to swap between mouse and move mode :)
@Zenita But how do I type?

@Zenita Thank you so much!

is the server up atm?
@shauny1ynuahs We were encountering some problems with our various servers from DNS issues and lag spikes if I recall and also something to note is that we have a weekly restart at 3pm UTC+10:00 on a Wednesday .
So the meteor hit our server guys, come check out the devastation!
Server will continue to run the ruined world so people have a chance to check it out. Server will be restarting early next week on the next build.
Poor world... GG
Let us remember the good times when our 1st Eco world was alive and blooming by gathering around the campfire to look at the history our ancestors created:
A General Store emerges:
The General Store is open for business!
A Community Farm is organized
A viewing platform is made:
A Windmill / Church is constructed:
Gold is discovered!:
A large mine is created:
Our abuse of the planet starts to show:
Steps are taken to rectify the problem:
We begin to learn to live with nature again although all animals are now dead ;(
The remaining days were spent trying to pool resources as a last effort to stop the pending doom from an incoming asteroid (we failed).
