After 5 months trying to fix my broken computer, I think I may have gotten it, Yippie! but I’m in the middle of a move so I still wont be around for a few weeks yet…. hey at least I fixed the computer right? :-/
Sorry for the downtime, folks. We had some electrical work done on the house last week. The power was out long enough for the battery backup to run out of juice and I was at work at the time, so I didn’t have a chance to power off the server before the battery died. When I got home that evening, the server computer was completely dead, wouldn’t power on at all.
I was able to determine that, luckily, it was just the power supply. I found a new one on eBay for $25 (thanks to the server’s sponsors, we had enough cash in our coffer to cover the expense, thanks guys!), it arrived today, I installed it, and we seem to be back in business. Read on for the technical misadventure. Continue Reading
Just wondering, I’ve been away for along time on some personal business but I’m trying to free up some time to FINALLY fix my computer and get back on the server.
As many of you probably have already noticed, we are now running 1.4.2 on the server. We however have postponed destroying the maps and starting anew until the official API comes out. The reason we were going to do the reset during 1.4 was because that was when it was supposed to come out, however the team at mojang have pushed back the release date, hopefully it will be coming out with 1.5, but only time will tell. So for now your creations live on. And just as a reminder when we do reset I (sean) will be hosting the maps on my site and will provide a download link for everyone.
Just hashed out a few of the long-standing problems with the server:
Fixes Affecting Users
Death Messages: FIXED
Newbie Spawn Location: FIXED
DynMap: Mostly FIXED (still needs some tweaking)
Fixes Affecting Moderators
HawkEye Rollbacks: FIXED
Login Invisibility: Potentially FIXED (Untested)
Updated a bunch of plugins, as well as CraftBukkit (1.3.2 R2.0) and reset a few config files, and we seem to be good to go. As always, let me know if you run into issues!
About the 1.4 update and the resets of the maps:
Some say, the update will be here by 24 octobre…
Others say, that it will be here by the 28th….
Some even say, that it will not be here untill the next eclipse….
All we know is that it’s closing in. And that it’s going to be awesome.
So, how are we going to fill in the new maps? I really liked comp’s idea.
(Just to recap, here’s comp’s idea:)
1) Ditch the guest world completely, and let the guests build in a small section in the regular world.
Obviously they have zero rights outside that area. Should trusted players also be able to build in this section?
2) Turn the members world into a creative world (trusted players are in creative in this world).
3) Anything goes world: “Basic chat-courtesy and kid-friendliness still apply, but in-game changes are not monitored, policed, or acted upon.
Possibly creative-mode, possibly warehouse-driven, possibly survival-only. But no rules for world changes, chest robbing, etc. Anything Goes.”
I like his idea, but I would definitely like to have a separate survival world (the same as we know it) including survival_nether and survival_end world.
Also, Comp/warped, if you are going to turn the regular world into a creative world, what will you do with the sponsors levels?
Perhaps we could make the anything goes world into a skylands world again?
Obviously, only if we can get that to work…
Or some sort of nuclear post apocalypse world where you have to survive? I know a PERFECT map for this one.
Or maybe a (survival) world with factions and cities and economy (and griefing?) …
Or or or or….
So, what are your ideas/comments? Post them!

Thank you for allowing me to re-join your community after this long absence. It is a great honor that you guys have found a way to restore my status after so long. I thank you.
To all the players, I hope to see you in-game and wish the best of days to you all.
Hey everyone, while normally I would not plug my own work on the site, this is one of those rare exceptions. I entered a contest last night on threadless which is sponsored by Mojang in order to make some new minecraft shirts. My entry currently isn’t up, but if you guys wouldn’t mind when it is up would you please vote for it. The entry can be found here, and when it is live there will be a voting feature on it, you’ll need an account on the site. If you want to be lazy you can use your facebook profile to login. Thank you for the help guys. After the jump you can see what the picture looks like.
Update: So threadless turned down my first and second proposals so you can find my new new slightly modified entry here, I also like it more, and the new picture of it after the break.
Your /i has been reinstated hun.
Don’t make me regret it.
Just letting you all know Smoore_FAIL aka Smoore420 just did a review of our server on youtube so if you’d like to check it out the video is embeded after the break. Moment don’t watch the video Check out the review
