Does anyone still play with Samsara?

I'm curious because I haven't seen or heard much from any fans of the mod in a hot minute, nor have I seen any servers related to it other than a Samsara Stronghold server. So does anyone still play it?

I change the mod on my server every 2 - 4 weeks, and Samsara is one of the mods I use. It is on once or twice a year.

I named my servers so they would be easy to find. Their names both start with Empyre's Little Server. Right now, the first server has my maps with Complex Doom Cluster F*** (I hate that name), and my second server has my weapons with Disparate Realities.

I see. Do you know how to set up a server without having any security issues? I can't play online without my dad looking at possible firewall breaks and data theft.

I set up a separate account on my server computer and severely limited what that account can do. I disabled all non-essential services, especially file/printer sharing. I had help doing this, and you should, too. Also, the router itself should serve as a pretty good firewall.

Another approach would be to set up a server on TSPG: http://allfearthesentinel.net/
