When you launch Minecraft you will be promted to update. Make sure you click Not Now. If you update, you will not be able to play on the server until the server is updated and this will likely be a couple days from now, I’ll post here when I know more. Before I can even begin testing/configuring server for 1.3 (step 1), I need a stable version of Bukkit. Check Bukkit 1.3 progress here.
Bukkit Twitter updates here.
Issue after issue after issue I FINALLY decided to move to a new host. We moved our 70,000 files from a host single-core CPU and 2,048mb to multiple-core CPU and 3,490mb and so far so great, I can already notice a HUGE difference in performance.
So done with our old host, in the ~2 months I was with them I opened more than 20 support tickets and almost all of them were for the same reasons. Last Friday they decided to move clients around all afternoon with no notice and lagged the crap out of us for a few hours, then today the server just went “offline” at around 4pm for like 30 minutes with no explanation, just an email apologizing for the inconvenience. Well, I can only take so much apologizing, I have 20+ emails from them with apologies. Maybe I should start collecting them.
The old server is still at greenbay.a2g.gs with TNT enabled and all protections disabled if anyone wants to go have fun, the new server is ALIVE at greenbay.gbunetwork.com. The only noticeable change in the world/plugins is I added a 1-second delay when teleporting to reduce combat teleporting, other than that it’s the same server we all know and love.
I have received MANY questions regarding the new world. Since I’ve made some decisions already, I figured I’ll tell you what to expect..
What can I bring to the new world?
- You will keep all of your mcMMO Experience
- Your earned money (capped at $50,000)
- A structure from old world (cost is $400,000)
- A faction town (cost is $800,000)
NOTE: Any structures or towns I move will have the chests and items removed
What can I expect in the new world?
- Same / similar quests (hope we find a mushroom island)
- Your inventory, armor, weapons will be removed
- Same spawn area / spawn house
- Spawn server-shops might go away or just be reduced to promote user shops more.
- New user chest-shop organization, perhaps a mall safe from PVP with rented units?
- 100% newly generated world with all added items from 1.3
- 33% smaller world for more interaction (and conflict)
- All factions will be disbanded so you’ll need to re-create you faction
- Similar PVP rules to what we have now
I’ll post on the website with plenty of notice to get prepared for the big move, the last day of this map I might just enable TNT and make a shop where you can buy TNT for $1,000/block from the server, then we can run around destroying/raiding everything for a day like wild animals.
When is this happening?
Keep in mind some of the plugins we use on the server will need to be updated so we might have to live without some features until Bukkit and other plugins release updates. For this reason, we’ll likely not update the server on the same day 1.3 is released so don’t update your game client until you see the “server running newer version” message, or you see the official post on this website. Our target launch date is the first week in August.
Did I miss anything? Have a suggestion or a question? Ask me here.
OK, I had to host this baby on MediaFire since it’s over 20,000 pixels wide and 70mb in size, yikes! With the high-res version you can zoom in really far, it’s pretty awesome. Sorry, no time to label all the factions, in fact the Dynmap Factions plug isn’t even installed on the server right now sooo yeah, figure it out 😉 At least now we can see where MFKR is right??
