Hey folks, its that time of year again. (For those of you that are unaware) every year around this time we update our classic minecraft map on our trade servers to a colder christmas themed version. We've been doing these updates for 4+ years now!
Main Hub has just changed over to the new version and the other servers will follow tommorow morning. Enjoy the update and have a fantastic christmas break!
PS. If anyone has overwatch add me up (NeonHeights#1382)
Wanted to let you all know that the servers are temporarily down tonight D: Rest assured we have our very Top Lennies on the case to identify and fix the problem ASAP! Please be understanding during this downtime and we will have everything up and running again before you know it.
You can view current status of all our servers here http://bans.neonheightsservers.ca/index.php?p=servers
Hey guys, im back from the grave (Not really though cause i didnt have any part of this map update )
Our beloved staff Bio Benny and Unnamed have come together to create a brand new update of our idle map. Its a halloween themed update with plenty of new easter eggs and cool additions to it. I uploaded the new map to both idle servers and it should be going live right now! Go hop on either one of them and let us know what you think of the new map update! The server IPs are listed below
Idle #1: 184.108.40.206:27015
Idle #2: 220.127.116.11:27015
Update: issue was "fixed" like 5 minutes after this announcement. Do you think Valve's ears are burning?
Well, word has gotten out pretty quickly about an engineer glitch in which if you use the Short Circut's alt fire on someone on the opposite team, it will lag them, and the server...Not surprisingly, players jumped on the bandwagon immedietly and started abusing this glitch.
I'd like to take the time now to please ask everyone to not use the alt fire on the short circut (or even forgo using the short circuit entirely) until such time that this issue is fixed. Up to tf2 devs at this point.
If you see people doin' it too, take a screenshot and report it to us so we can look into it. Thanks for reading this PSA from your favorite tf2 community :^)
Over the last little while, these individuals have shown major interest in our servers. Today, I have the pleasure of officially announcing our new additions to our staff team. We will also be promoting a superb moderator to admin!
These players have done stuff like being a great part of our community, helping other players with problems and reporting things or just generally showing initiative. These players have done a great job at making the NHS community a better place, and as a result, we have promoted the below players to moderator in hopes that they will continue to make the servers a better and more fun place for everyone!

Give our new staff a high-five next time you see them in game, or if you dont have the high five taunt you can just paste a lenny in chat for them. I might have one around here somewhere.... oh, HERE it is: ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
We have also promoted one of our moderators to admin. This mod has shown his committment to NHS and has invested countless hours into the servers and also worth mentioning the time spent working on our reports/bans discussions here. He is kind, respectful, and most of all he knows his stuff.
If you see him in game, throw him a lenny. Dont bother with high-fives, he doesn't like that stuff. Once you spend enough time on NHS as the admins have, you LITERALLY become a lenny.

We also say goodbye to a few of our old moderators and admins, who over the past few months have chosen to part ways with our staff team for one reason or another.
As always, we wish them all the best in wherever their lives may take them and we hope to see them around on the servers anyway!
To all you regulars: you guys are awesome! It is because of you guys that we are the community we have grown to be! And hey, you never know, you may one day have an anouncement about you being promoted as well!
O, and stay frosty.
A few weeks back while I was playing GTA V, I went ahead and made some plans to create a NeonHeight's GTA Crew that I had wanted to have open to everyone from NHS who play the game. I forgot that I had it all out, until now...
So feel free to come join us in the brand new GTA V crew for some fun! It's open to everyone and it's nothing serious of a crew, just something I put together in a minute, so we could chill as a community in GTA V.
The crew link can be found here: https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/nhs_incorporated
And let me know what kind of events you'd like to do as a crew as well, I feel like this is something we could get into (or not...we shall see!)
See you on the crew side!
Hey guys, Roudy here. Time for another minor staff update. These 3 individuals used to be moderators on our servers and had to step down for their own reasons, and they have been showing a serious interest in joining our team again, and have done MUCH more than their share to manage these servers, and it's time they got another chance at recognition.
We will only be re-promoting these people and will not be adding in any new staff.
Say hello to our moderators who have joined us once again,
These 3 are doing more than their fair share, and i'm proud to promote them once again.
Please, if you ever see these three on the servers, thank them for their constant help and vigilance on the servers!
We also say goodbye today to a few of our inactive staff members,
LostAlot and Festive Tits of Kiev.
A few weeks back a bunch of our staff got together to create an online chatroom of sorts for players on our servers. The chatroom is hosted through an app called Discord. You can simply join the chat, assign a name to yourself and speak with people from all across our server group! There are almost ALWAYS staff members in this chat so its a great way to get ahold of an admin or moderator if you need one quickly. Its also a great way to get known on the servers if youre looking to become a moderator in the future.
We're getting this chat off the ground now so follow the link below and join the conversation! We would love to hear from you. Im in the chat now :)
For those of you that have been with us for a while, and have participated in our weekly Game Nights, you would hopefully remember that the game server used to run more than just TF2-Ware on it. We used to have a server that could switch freely between multiple game modes by using the voting command "rtv" in chat. Unfortunately, due to an update released by Valve, a lot of these game modes broke around the same time and I ran into a lot of issues after that with the game server.
Ive now created an all-new game server in hopes of bringing back the massive, fun crowds we had during the old game nights! This new server features modes such as: Prop Hunt, Rocket Dodge-Ball, Vs Saxton Hale, Death Run, TF2 Smash Bros and more!
At any point you can type "rtv" in chat to start a vote to change the game mode or map. The server is up RIGHT NOW and is in beta testing for the next few days to ensure it works properly. I will be uploading even more new game modes and maps as the days go by.
Come join me right now on the brand new game server for some fun! And let me know what you think of it when you get a chance to test it over the next few days.
NOTE: The new game server is on a different IP Address then the TF2-Ware server. Please add the new server listed below or join through the !hop menu in-game. (You can also join by clicking the server IP on our website, www.neonheightsservers.com)
Hey guys, I've got some news regarding the MOTD that is displayed upon joining our servers.
Over the next few days, I'll be testing out an advertisement plugin on both Idle servers as well as the donator server. This advertisement plugin will display short, skippable ads to the player where our website home page used to be. The goal of this plugin is to generate additional revenue on top of what our donation program currently makes, in-order to buy custom plugins for our game server as well as updates to our website and credit bots on our servers. This plugin will NOT change anything else on the servers aside from a simple ad being displayed when you first join. You will be able to skip the ad if you so choose. If the plugin generates enough revenue in the testing phase to make it worthwhile for us to keep it, I'll be adding it to the other servers as well.
