Server status, updates, user approvals, plans and more

Hey everyone,

The last couple of weeks have been really quiet for us, mainly because we were waiting on CraftBukkit and all plugins to catch up for 1.8.1. In the meanwhile, some of you have built amazing stuff on the temp 1.8 server, like the one on the image attached. Now, what's going to happen next? Read on to find out.

Server split

That's right, the SMP world and the Redstone world will be on different physical servers from now on. This also means different server addresses, but luckily we got a server list now in 1.8, right? Now, why would we want to do the split? The reasons are purely technical: unfortunately, redstone is a huge CPU hog, and therefore it doesn't co-exist well with other worlds, contributing to lag in them. The rest is simple enough: separate servers means more processing power, which means less lag.

1.8 update and new host

The Alpha server will go down for updates tomorrow (Saturday) at 8 AM GMT. Note that once it's back online, the IP address will change, as we are migrating it to a different host, so we strongly encourage you to use the DNS name (alpha.redstone-server.info) and not the IP address.

Questions and answers

Q: Once the servers are split, do users need to apply for membership on both servers?
A: No, the whitelists will be kept in sync, and we're not planning any to change the way it works (at least, for now).

Q: Will there be an 1.8 map?
A: No, because 1.9 is close and it will introduce certain changes in world generation. Once 1.9 final is out, there will be a new 1.9 map.

Q: What's going to happen to the temp map on beta.redstone-server.info?
A: It will be published as a world download, eventually. You can still play there while we're rolling out the updates.

Q: What's going to happen to the present 1.7 SMP world?
A: It will still be available, but once the 1.9 world is up it will no longer be the main world.

why do you want to diffrent servers for redstone i perfer u get a plugin so that we can warp to a diffrent world...... and ty for including our cathedral

By batmanbugs

The cathedral is in the picture but the city is not. The builders of both (well the main builders and the pple that built the cathedral and came up with all of it) are xal3x2015x and batmanbugs. We built both the city and cathedral the other pple that built houses and dubastot's bridge is dubastot, rhinoforce135 and tikihazmat89.

So the server will work with 1.8 or 1.9?

With 1.8 but can't give any ETAs as the hoster (redstonehost.com) is having technical difficulties...
