Mine bitcoin!

You can now mine Bitcoin on this website! The Bitcoins are mined using your processor power and used to pay for the server. Any coins you mine will be transferred into your donator status. Like that you can become a donator without spending real cash! You can try it out here!

[Update:] I just wanted to add some information: It is very likely that not one individual will make a significant amount of money for the server – and therefore also not towards a long donator status. The mechanics of this tool is rather geared towards many people contributing a little and the overall sum of all the small parts then being meaningful for the server. If you realize that you make a lot of money with this (like several USD/day), you should rather likely investigate if you should not be doing this for your own benefit instead. I will be letting this running for a couple of days now and then publish some statistics here. If statistically it would make sense for the server to continue this, I will leave it up, otherwise I will shut it down.

Server moved, what’s next?

The server move is done, everything seems to move fine and the performance improvements are really significant. In the past, the minecraft server was using 100% of the available processor resources even with nobody online, now it does not even use 3%.

So that’s done! What’s next? We have several things I could focus on next:

  • Life insurance: We could have a 1-time insurance where you run a command and it would remember what you were carrying around with you and charges you a fee. When you die, you can use a second command and get back what you lost. Very practical if you die in the End or Aether. The mechanic here is just an example, how it would actually work, when you pay and how much would have to be figured out.
  • Buy lots anywhere: Lots in the empire and all other worlds would be up for sale with incremental prices like for buying homes. Empire lots would be more expensive, flatland lots cheaper for example.
  • Making a concentrated effort to get more players on the server
  • Anything in this list here.
  • Anything else?

Please tell me what has the biggest priority for you personally.

Welcome to the new server! (1st Update)

I have migrated the server to new hardware! The main difference is much higher speed due to a faster processor. But we also upgraded the version of some key backend software packages such as PHP & Java.

So far, the only thing I had issues migrating is Teamspeak. I hope I will be able to fix this soon. If something on the website does not work, please make sure you clear your browser cache and restart your browser. If something still does not work, please let me know ASAP.

Thanks!

Update 1: Teamspeak is back up, the only thing not working right now is the widget on the website showing the channels.

Stop AFK fishing, please!

I am aware that there are 2 users on the server that do some AFK fishing, one a bit and the other one a lot. I am writing this here to let you know that you are doing it, and that I want you to stop it and dump the fish that you got.

The issue is that I “can” prevent it but it would have quite bad consequences for much more people on the server. I can rig the AFK detection to kill on detection, but it does not differentiate between different AFK reasons. So people who travel a lot with boats trigger the AFK detection as well, but I don’t want to kill them for that.

So in other words, I don’t want to see any more fishing AFK alerts anymore. Next time I detect this, the user will be banned.

Damage check please!

Yesterday we had some issue with the server protection. The effect was that the fire spread was enabled and apparently some things got damaged.

I would like everyone to comment if they have major damage and if they want to have their lots reset. It’s easier to do everyone at once instead of following up 1 by 1 over the coming days. There is a risk that your lot was damaged if someone was online near your lot during the following time:

  • yesterday afternoon Hong Kong time
  • yesterday early morning US time (4am-11am)
  • yesterday morning EU time (9am onwards)

Please kindly go and check your lot and leave a comment here if you need a reset to the status before that time.

1.12 is live!

I just upgraded the server to 1.12 and all seems to work fine. I think I added all new blocks to the system so deposit and trading should work fine with the new terracotta and concrete blocks. I also adjusted the system so that blocks that my system cannot handle yet will not be lost anymore, you will get an error but keep them until I added them.

While it sends me reports when an invalid block is found, please also let me know if you find that something does not work as expected.

Happy crafting!

1.12 status

I did some more testing for 1.12 over the weekend and updated a good dozen plugins to the latest version on a test server. It seems that we are able to switch to 1.12 without any issues and all functionalities being ported over without issues. I found one small plugin that we use on the /home command has a small but critical issue and we are working on a new version there as well.

Once we have that, we should be ready to upgrade anytime. So please be a bit more patient.

Thanks!

1.12, first test

I did a preliminary test of spigot 1.12 and found the following plugins broken:

  • Dynmap (our nice 3D map). This is fairly widely used and was last updated this February, I would assume a fix will be available soon.
  • Modifyworld which makes sure that Guests cannot break anything, prevents certain blocks in certain worlds and is a part of the whole Permissions setup on the server. This one is really critical. This one has not been updated since September 2013. There is a fork that has been updated recently, but only the source code. I need the Jar file for that.

1.12 released!

So 1.12 Minecraft and the new version of spigot was released a few hours ago.
That means everything is here to do upgrade testing.TThe actual upgrade might be happening sometime this weekend. I have a very packed day tomorrow and my daughter’s 3rd birthday on Saturday, but is I’ll do my best to find some time to do the upgrade over the weekend – if I don’t run into technical problems. So please be patient!

Forum issues

There is a bug in the forum that caused extremely long loading times. I put a temp fix to this now, so the forum should be working again. I am working with the developer to get a permanent fix.
