The Server Situation

31 votes

As most of you know by now, the monkeys who hosted our beefy minecraft server have done something to it, and they don't really know what yet (seriously), it's been 1week ~4 days of scratching heads and eating bananana's. You can read our converstations with them here.

The good news is, we have setup a new rig elsewhere (tired of waiting on these monkeys) which is 2-3 times more powerful! Along with this decision to get a more beefier minecraft server, we have decided to make a complete fresh start on the servers by clearing out all the dead weight, silly plugins, leaderboards and bringing a new fresh experience to the users.

MrSnowGlobe has been hard at work rebuilding the minecraft servers and implementing new and exciting features that our World of Minecraft SMP team are putting forward. We are also listening to the community feedback in the below post on the front page.

We do have backups, which has aided us in reviewing configs on the server at a fast pace. The primary backups were taken out with the above service disruption however our secondary backup server is online  but is not as recent and reliable as we would like.

We have been looking for an excuse to clear everything and rebuild for performance and this is the perfect time.

We apologize for the inconvenience and understand that some people will leave and some will join to enjoy a fresh new World of Minecraft!

Server is Down! D:

As of 6+ hours ago: The machine hosting our minecraft servers died and the cause is unknown at this time. 

Sadly, we can't offer you an ETA on when it will be back so all we can do is just sit tight.

This post will be updated with more infomation as it comes!

H4X: Sorry guys, it seems the hosting company are stupid monkeys and don't know how to plug in a monitor and see what the hell is going on. I'll see if they can perhaps manage to install an IPKVM so I can do their job for them. Thanks for your patience.

H4X: Well guys, after 5 days they finally managed to install the IPKVM, only problem is that its someone else's windows server, not our World of Minecraft linux server... /epicfacepalm. So looks like they have been rebooting some other server this whole time. I don't know whether to laugh or cry but hopefully we can get this sorted soon for you guys!

World of Minecraft SMP and World of Minecraft PvP are in final testing mode!

We'd like to thank everyone for being patient whilst we split the servers and broke them and repaired them and added magic.

If you check the Todo list you can see that that PvP is basically done and SMP has one or two issues persisting. They also both share that science needs to be added!

Once these two are fully functional, work on CMP (creative) can begin which should hopefully not take as long. In the mean time, we appreciate all your comments and reports about things on the server. Anymore reports or suggestions/questions can be posted below :)

Also MrSnowGlobe is awesome.

World of Minecraft PvP, dun dun dun GOGOGO

If you have been keeping up with the server via MrSnowGlobe's Google Document you would have noticed all the changes we have been going through with the server.

Now if you look at the PvP section, you can see we have hit a pretty bad problem. Inventories have disappeared. MrSnowGlobe spent several hours trying to figure out what went wrong but it's just broken. The only solution to this is to reset the PvP map.

Yes we said we were going to keep the map but simply resetting the map will give everything a fresh start to PvP. And hey, you have clans this time around from the start so you guys will be able to organise more things together!

I'm going to guess this is a bit of a disappointment to a lot of people but we tried our best at keeping the servers fully functional!


SMP Updates & Changes Part 2 ft. The Server Split!

Hello All!

The Server will be coming down in roughly 30 minutes from when this post is on the front page. These changes will take time so the server could be up and down a lot during this time. 

Some planned Changes & Additions to the SMP Server:

  • PvP Map moved to another server (Same Map)
  • Updated and Improved Creative to its Live State
  • Reset Creative Servers Map
  • Lowered Teleport delay
  • Updated Plugins
  • All Servers running on updated Software
  • Changed IRC Plugin.
  • Added Science (Interserver portals)
  • Moved player PvP Inventories to the PvP Server.
  • Simple Clans is back!

This update is aimed to help fix a lot of issues and increase server performance by splitting up the maps and the back end files.

More informing as this proccess unfolds

Any questions, just post in the thread and either me or a staff member will answer .

#Update: Backups were made, data was moved around. Servers Should be operational before the weekend is over. Its a matter of sorting through the plugins and putting data in the right place. 

#Update2: Due to extra issues, PvP has not been brought online yet but SMP is still going strong!
