As all server Veterans know, the server was shut down a while ago due to technical issues nearly 6 months ago. But after a lot of hard work from the server administration we managed to re-open the server. The server is now web-hosted so there will be no more down time. Also all of the ranks from the the old server will be transferred into the new one. So if you used to be mvp or vip you have retained your rank. Also there is a new IP so look at the home page for that.
Well uploading the server to the site was not as easy as i thought, it turns out i pretty much need to set up the server form scratch with only the map to work with. That means it is going to be ALOT of work on my part to get the server online. That would be fine but i have other things to work on this summer, i got hired at an engineering company for an internship so most of my time this summer will be taken up with that. At the moment i don't thing i will have the time to do that and get the server up. So this seems like it is good bye for now. Maybe when the summer is over i will put back up the server.
Thank you for all of the support, i had a fun time playing with u guys. In my view the best thing about the server was the community, you guys, and I'm going to miss ya, but i have bigger projects to work on now. There are so many good server out there u guys will have no trouble fining a new one, if u haven't all ready. Later I'm going to put the map download link on the website, so you guys can keep working on what ever u were doing. But keep checking the site later in the summer to see if the server is coming back up. So this is Sman101 signing off for now. Hope to see you guys soon. :)
Well right now i'm still uploading every thing to the server hosting site. I just finished uploading the main map and i just started on all of the plugins, looks like it is going to take a while to unload all of the plugins, hopefully it will be done by tmoro. Once that is done i need to upload the creative world but i think the we r running low on memory so I don't know if i will be able to upload the skylands top :(. i'll update u on the progress tomoro
I'll try to update the blog daily.... Today i did not have a lot of time to work on the server, But right now i'm uploading our map and our plugins to the server hosting site. Once that is done all i need to do is wright the permissions and the server is good to go. Once again it should be done by sometime next week. If u have any Q's leave a comment on this post. Thx for being so patient
I Think i found a good website that can host our server. I can most likely have the server back up sometime this week. Keep checking up on the blog for more updates and a possible IP address change. After all of this is over the server will be back and better then ever. :)
My computer dying form running the server for so long with out giving it breaks..... the server is going to be down until i fix my computer or until i find out how to host it on the web..... if not i might need to sell the server to someone how can run it. :( hopefully my commuter just needs a break and ill see u guys soon :).
People have been complaining for lag lately so to fix that i'm just going to run the server off a web server. That means that of instead of running it off my computer we will run it off a website. One the server is web hosted there will no more lag and the server will be able to hold a lot more people, but the down side is that is cost money every month and we might have to get a new server IP. I'll try to keep you guys updated with news on this.
This week we finaly picked our new staff member SBPro. We did like a vote with all of the admins on the server, it was really close but he won. So if u have a problem u can go to him now. Also we go the new dragon travel plugin on the server, with this u can rided dragons around the server in preset flight paths, we set up 1 at the spawn and 2 fun ones and the flight station by the train station, you should check it out. O... and as u can see almost all of the good ideas u post under server improvents in forums we put into the server so post something if u have a good idea. :)
Some time when I'm out or at school my house will have a power surge and the server will turn off :(. But today I'm getting a back up battery for my computer which will keep the server up for 9 hours with out power, so that problem should be fixed. Also I uploaded a new video of the server on the site, I used this really cool shader that makes everything look awesome
The server has been running good lately, we r getting a lot of traffic on the server so I was thinking about staffing some more players to help with all the new people. I was also thinking about the summer when I'm ussaly traveling so i guess i wont be able to look after the server, what i think I'm going to do is pay a website to host the server for us while I'm gone but i'm going to need more donations to do that. So please remmeber to donait so we can have the server up for the summer which is only a month or two way!
