Datacenter Bonanza!

Server has been moved into the datacenter! Should be able to access it on a1.meinkraft.net, if not temp IP is 70.164.0.250, that will be fixed soon when the DNS fully propagates. :D

 

Servers updated for 1.8!

Servers have been updated for 1.8, I will get Bukkit updates on the servers soon along with multiworld so things can be pulled from the old worlds.

Server Addresses once more:

Public Server              -  a1.meinkraft.net:25565 (Default)
VIP Server                  -  a1.meinkraft.net:25566
ZombieKraft*             -  a1.meinkraft.net:25567
AdminKraft(Private)  -  a1.meinkraft.net:25564

( * ZombieKraft is a project of mine that will probably take some time to finish, but will definitely be worth it when all the respective plugins are updated and fixed)

1.8 Update Plan – Server Restructuring

We’ve decided, after much thought and discussion, that our best course of action is to place the current worlds as separate worlds on their respective servers and generate new worlds. It would be look like this:

- Server

> 1.8 World (Default)

> Old World

A portal to the Old Worlds will be placed near the spawn of the respective 1.8 World as well as a return portal in the Old World spawn. This will allow people to move things from the old worlds to the new 1.8 updated worlds and we will assist in the relocation of large above-ground structures on a case to case basis. The old worlds will cease to be backed up on a regular basis in a few days after the update and in 2 – 3 weeks we will no longer support the old worlds.

The launch date for 1.8 is supposed to the evening of September 8th, as such we’re getting things prepared for world relocation and eagerly awaiting the updates from the Bukkit team as well as the teams that maintain our plugins. It’s impossible to tell how long that will take and as such, it’s recommended that no one update their clients to 1.8 until we have the 1.8 Bukkit update on the servers.

 

Server Restructuring

 

The Vanilla server is going to be renamed the VIP server and the Public server will be going live as soon as WorldGuard is updated along with Bukkit for 1.8. We are also going to use this as an opportunity to restructure all the ports for the servers and streamline things. The new port mapping will that’s been decided on is:

Public Server              -  a1.meinkraft.net:25565 (Default)
VIP Server                  -  a1.meinkraft.net:25566
ZombieKraft*             -  a1.meinkraft.net:25567
AdminKraft(Private)  -  a1.meinkraft.net:25564

( * ZombieKraft is a project of mine that will probably take some time to finish, but will definitely be worth it when all the respective plugins are updated and fixed)

We will do our best to make this a smooth transition but it may take some time to complete and even then future updates may change the terrain generation drastically enough that it may warrant generating new worlds for the servers, but only time can tell.

See you all in 1.8, hope you’re as excited about it as we are!

Original World Is BACK!

I finally managed to restore the old map to its former glory and my intention is to turn it into our Official Public world in a week or so. To get ready to do that, I need everyone that originally played on that map to go back and use AutoRegionGuard to protect their stuff as it will be the protection plugin of choice for the server. As such I have whitelisted everyone that has been on that map for that server. You can find how to claim your stuff by following the signs at spawn. The new IP for that server is: “a1.meinkraft.net:25560“. That will not be permanent and I am planning on restructuring all the port numbers here soon to make them more uniform.

New server is finished!

The new server “ASUSi5-BLACKBOX” is finished and has been installed in the rack and basic stuff setup, servers have been relocated and I will be changing our port mapping in about a week or two.

Whitelist and Donations Update

The whitelist has been reinstated, feel free to apply by clicking the link at the top of the page.

 

Now for the exciting announcement, enough donations have come in that we were able to start buying the new hardware! The new server is based on an Intel i5 2500k with 16 GB of G.SKILL Sniper DDR3 ram. Here’s a picture of the build in progress, you can follow it closer on our new Facebook Fan page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/MeinKraft/226463890725931.

Vanilla Server Now On Default Port

The popularity of the Vanilla server over the last few weeks has prompted me to relocated it to the default port and to move the Towny server over to port 25555.
