PSA: Important Update Regarding WoM 1.8

9 votes

Hello Community!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but sadly it's of those posts :(


Over the weekend, the majority of Bukkit staff left Bukkit. This is the final nail in the coffin for Bukkit and we can now call it "dead". As Bukkit was hit with a DCMA and Spigot was soon hit with one as well, they can't legally update anymore.

All is not lost, however!

I'd like to bring your attention to Project: Sponge

Sponge is a combination of a new API (likely based off of Spout/Flow’s APIs) implemented on top of Forge, with assistance from other parts of Minecraft’s modding community (Glowstone, Canary, etc.).

It will be both a server and client API, and its target user base is pretty much anyone that wants to mod their game, including server owners. However, we may focus on the server-side portion first.

Sponge is a mass collaboration between most of the major developers in the MC modding community and based on the design document it seems very promising!


What does this mean for WoM?

Thankfully, WoM is pretty unaffected from all this! The biggest issue is bringing 1.8 to our network will take a while. We intend to use sponge once it's available.

In the mean time, we are looking into short term "muck around" solutions!

We will keep you updated as more news develops!

NEXUS - Now in Closed Testing!

10 votes

Edit: NEXUS testing is now offline

Hello Community!

As some of you may know, we have been working on a little server we like to call NEXUS.

To bring you up to speed: we annouced it a few months back and posted a development update 2 months ago.


Now we are ready to share the latest!

Since the last update, Spud and Myself have re-written a lot of our already re-written code... and then we re-wrote it again... (development is hard) Don't worry! These rewrites allowed us to really improve on world size and how responsive the server feels.

NEXUS is now in a really nice state which is why we are going to start letting testers in!

The goal of the testing is to make sure the server is stable, usable and for us to get a rough idea how many players NEXUS can support at once!

If you are interested in helping test nexus, please show let us know in the comments!

Testers who have been selected will receive a PM on this website so keep an eye out!

  • Control over who can build in your world

NEXUS isn't the only thing going behind the scenes at the moment... stay tuned!

Server Issues [Important] [Resolved]

10 votes

All issues have been resolved.

As some of you may or may not know, the WoM network has been plagued with connection issues for the past few days. 

This has been been caused by a few minor issues with the datacenter but mainly because one of our hard drives has failed but don't worry! We used a Raid 1 setup so the data is safe! 

We are waiting on the broken hard drive to be swapped out with a new one by our providers.

The ETA is 24 hours but it could happen anytime between now and then. 

Hard drive has been replaced and rebuilt. SMP services will still be unavailable for a short period, see H4X post below.

We are live! All servers are up. Enjoy!

NEXUS Development Update

Howdy Community!

It's been a while, how have you been?

Just a quick update for you all on NEXUS

As most of you know, we announced NEXUS a little while ago and were gearing up to launch it... and then Mojang announced name changes and UUID's to come into effect.

These changes would've made NEXUS quite flawed. Spud and myself made the choice to port it to the new UUID system rather then release it and have to make the port later on. This also has given us a lot more time to flush it clean of all the bugs we can find.

The Nexus Opens

The Nexus Opens (in Beta)

Have you ever wanted your own world? Have you ever wanted to boss staff members or users around? Yeah, well too bad. Except for the part where you get your own world!

Thanks to the efforts of MrSnowGlobe and Spudsrus, WoM: Realms is making a revival- erm, rising from the ashes. You know how when a phoenix dies it does that cool thing where it rises from its own ashes and is reborn. Yeah, that's Nexus.

What you get for the low, low price of walking all the way to the Nexus portal in Lobby: (we know it's hard, but it's worth it. Trust me.)


Features:

  • Your own World.
  • The ability to control your own world. Allow people to build in your Nexus World.
  • The ability to shape your world. Ever wanted to use WorldEdit in WoM? Well, now you can. Just don't put in 200k dirt blocks at a time.ᴵ'ᵐ ᶫᵒᵒᵏᶦᶰᵍ ᵃᵗ ʸᵒᵘ ᵀᵉʳʳᵃ
  • Your own chat for your own world. Each world will have its own chatroom.
  • The ability to be a god. Well, sorta. You get to control time and place blocks at will. God-like, I think?

Forget about Realms, the Nexus is opening. Are you ready?
