The SMP server is now open!

Jul

The server address has changed: smp.mcanywhere.com

So this finally happened. The SMP server is officially open. This work has, in fact, been going for so long, that when it was finally finished this kind of caught me off guard, and I don't know what to say now. :) Oh, there's several things though.

  • First and foremost, the server still has a whitelist, but now each player has an ability to invite up to 5 friends, and as soon as they activate their invitation codes the will be able to join the server that instant.
  • If you were whitelisted on the server in the past, check your mailbox for an invitation code from me. It will lead to a web interface where you will be able to redeem the code, and also send out invitation codes to your friends. If you're not finding the email, send me a PM and we'll sort that out.
  • As a bonus, for every friend invited you will receive 300 Cubits as soon as they are approved.
  • Don't be confused by the name mcanywhere.com. This is a side project of mine. :) The same people stand behind this SMP server, and the same friendly spirit abides.

There's a lot of stuff coming in the next couple of weeks. Here's some items from my todo list:

  • A proper website (obviously)
  • Stats tracking on the website, and leaderboards
  • An achievements system, that, again, integrates with the website.

Stay tuned, and as always, your feedback is appreciated.

"Failed to verify username"

Jul
02

If you're getting the "failed to verify username" error when you're logging in, be aware that you are not alone. Something is going on right now with Mojang's servers.
Just keep retrying and eventually you'll get online.

UPD: all is back to normal.

Cheers,

It's alive! Or is it?

Jun
10

The creative server should be back online. We still suspect some *possible* hardware issues with the motherboard, but let's see how it runs. Fingers crossed!

Known bugs: the chat colors are not working. We're investigating.

UPD: It went down after a brief period of time, unfortunately. We're working on alternative options at the moment.
UPD2: Have been able to transfer all data to the Alt server. So, Alt server is the new Redstone server until we figure it out with the hardware. The SMP will be down until that time as well.

The address beta.redstone-server.info should start working within the next hour.

The chat colors and rank prefixes are still broken, but I really need to get some sleep. :P So those will be fixed some time tomorrow.
In the meantime, enjoy!

Temporary server address

Jun
08

While the main server is down, we've set up a place for everyone to hang out. You can do pretty much everything there (as long as you don't break Rule #2, of course).

The address is: alt.redstone-server.info

This place will also be know as the alt server.
Stay tuned for more updates on the main servers.

Currently planned events are:

  • PvP Events!
  • Building Competitions!
  • Redstone Competitions!
  • Various Challenges!
  • Great Rewards!
  • And many more!!

Also stay tuned for one highly-anticipated launch event later in the day. We're not telling yet what it is, but you might be able to guess already. :)

Special event: survival game this Sunday

May
25
Undefined

Hey everyone,

UPD: the server address is hunger.redstone-server.info - come on in!
UPD2: due to the issues with minecraft.net login servers we will have to reschedule. The event will start 4 hours later than initially announced, i.e. at 20:00 GMT. Hopefully that works OK with everyone.

UPD3: and the winner is... neoblade1624! Congrats!

We're going to have a little PvP event this weekend, and you're invited! The event will be held on "The Survival Games 2" map, a.k.a. the Hunger Games map. If you've not heard of it yet, the description can be found here.

The goal is to be the last man standing. Here's a quote from the Rules:
Before the games start, all the participants must choose one tube around the center. This is their starting position. When the host is ready to start the games, he'll flick the lever in the host house and the tubes will go up and the games will begin.

Rules of The Survival Games:

  • Only one player can win The Survival Games.
  • You can not break any blocks, expect for leaves, vines and mushrooms.
  • You are only allowed to place blocks you find in chests.
  • Your inventory must be empty before you start the game.
  • No player is allowed to enter the host house.

The game will start at 16:00 GMT (12 PM EST, 9 AM PST, 20:00 MSK) on Sunday. The address of the server will be posted here 15 minutes prior to start.
The server will run a whitelist! In order to participate in this event, please post your in-game-name in the comments. We will stop accepting new people at 15:00 GMT Sunday or after 20 registered participants, whichever comes first.

Have fun and see ya in-game!

The New Creative Map is Open

Apr
04

That's right, after a long wait, we have finally opened our new Creative map. The bad news is we are deleting the old creative map as soon as possible and we ask that you immediately contact a moderator or administrator to transfer your creation; creations will only be moved if they meet expectations (not a dirt house). In the new Creative map, no large-scale Redstone creations will be allowed (the Redstone world is for that). The warp for the world is /warp Creative World. I look forward to seeing you there!

THE OLD.WORLD IS NOW CLOSED as of May 2.
If you would like a copy of the map, please contact any administrator. Thank you for building all your wonderful creations there.

SMP server mini-contest

Apr
04

Today, we launch a secret shop on the SMP server which will have various blocks and items not normally available in-game. The first player to find the shop will receive a reward of 1000 cubits.
Here's some hints:

  • The shop is within 1500 block radius from spawn
  • But not too close to spawn
  • Majorly underground
  • You'll know it when you find it
  • Wherever I put it

There will be an unlocked chest inside of the shop. Grab the contents as proof that you were there first!
If you still don't have access to the SMP server, just send me a PM.

Good luck!

UPD: The contest is over. The winner is Emilgardis!

Herobrine has made his mark!

Apr
01

Unfortunately, we have been attacked by the all feared Herobrine and he continues to wreak havoc on the server as Stym and I desperately try to find the fix for this. He has brought the server down and possessed GlaDOS, Stym reports he has been seeing strange things in real life and is beginning to worry. I urge you to stay calm and let us solve this, please be patient and wish us luck!

EDIT: Stym has wrangled the beast of Herobrine back into its dark dungeon deep in the Nether. He has calmed the spirits and the server is once again, back to normal.
