Server memories

March 16th, 2018 by root

I have opened up a new board on the forum for those that would like to post their own goodbye.  I’m also allowing players to post any contact info in case that is something anyone is interested in doing.

Thanks again to all of you that helped make this server such a big part of my life.

Calling it.

March 7th, 2018 by root

So this is a final farewell. I want to thank all of you that have given a portion of your lives to this server. Whether it was hundreds (thousands?) of hours or just a few here and there – I appreciate every one of you. If I had the time I would list everyone of you by name (well – your original username – thank you mojang for allowing username changes and making it that much less fun to run a server…). I wish I could give each of you a sentence or two to show my gratitude. But I would hate to leave anyone out so I am opting not to do this.

Running this server was frustrating at times. Even infuriating. But for the most part it was extremely fun and for a few years it was one of the highlights of my day. Designing maps, writing plugins (I spent more time writing code than actually playing), creating games and events – I will miss it – I have missed it. It’s been a long time already though and the sadness has passed but the desire has not returned.

There’s only so much time in the day – and sadly I have found that I simply do not have the time required to maintain an active and most importantly a safe server. My priorities have shifted over the last few years as well as my interests. While the memories of playing this game and especially running this server are close to my heart – it’s just not the same anymore. I had hoped that the idea of getting an older version of the server up an running would motivate me to action but it has not. Minecraft just doesn’t hold the same interest to me that it used to.

The forums will remain up for some time but as read-only. The site will remain up as well. I know there are a lot of requests for a copy of some of the past worlds. That is a lot of data to upload somewhere – I will consider it but I make no promises. If I ever do upload it I will post a link to it here and on the forum.

Again – my sincerest thanks to all of you – particularly those of you that have stuck around even up until now. I will miss you.

Take care

I’ve posted a little update on things to the forum. A few stats, some ramblings on the past, present, and future of the server.

Joey Gladstone Reset

October 15th, 2015 by root

The reset is finally here. Hopefully all the bugs are worked out.

Super large prize for the first player to craft a beacon!

2015 Reset

July 19th, 2015 by root

The server will reset Sept 31st, 2015. This will be called the Joey Gladstone Reset.

1.8 blocks are now available

October 28th, 2014 by root

1.8 blocks are now available to players logging in with a 1.8 client.  If you wish to keep using a 1.7.x client you might be able to do so but it could adversely effect your game experience.

Change in plot prices

September 12th, 2014 by root

After viewing the state of the economy since the reset I have lowered the price of plots around spawn:

1st plot – 100k

2nd and so on – 25k

You can pick any plot within the borders of spawn (0,0 and 1024,1024) AND that is more than 250 blocks from the spawn castle.   That’s roughly this right here:

Anything outside the red circle is available for purchase.  You can use this command to see how far you are from spawn:

/distance

 

Server is compatible with 1.8

September 4th, 2014 by root

1.8 blocks are not available, but 1.8 clients can now log in.  There is still no date on when the server will be 100% 1.8.

Server is back up

September 3rd, 2014 by root

I was not able to do a complete restore, but I think the builds on all the servers are there.  Inventories, mcmmo stats, money, are all as they were at 12am yesterday.

I’ve got two mirrored drives in the server now so hopefully something this catastrophic won’t happen again.
