Hosting meltdown


An hour and a half ago we have received an email from our hosting provider stating that they were going out of business effective immediately and urging to pull the data off their servers. Half an hour ago, the server went offline before we could finish pulling the data. Wow. We're not going to talk professional ethics here, but seriously... wow.

Let's have a little minute of silence to mourn all of the Minecraft servers that were killed by this (if you were hosted with Daddycheese or ShardHost - our condolences to you).

Now, what happens to us? Well, as you may remember, we had a long history with crappy hosting providers so we knew better than that... and had a backup elsewhere. So we're going to pull through and survive, although it was a pretty close call losing the entire server like this. :P

We're busy working on a replacement server - stay tuned. And always remember to have a backup!

UPD: we got our hands on the replacement server. Currently importing the Hawkeye database and it's taking a while. Expecting to have the whole thing running again tomorrow morning (UTC).
UPD2: we are back up and running on a new server! The server state has been rollback'd to 4:38 AM UTC Nov 12th.

Mod with the new launcher!


One of the biggest problems with the new launcher from Mojang is that it prevents you from modding your client. This video I found and successfully tested out on Windows 7 will explain how to play with mods using the new launcher. Please note this is for Windows users only.

Important info about new launcher (for users with high-end graphic cards)


As a heads up, the new launcher can cause lag whenever you play multiplayer. This is a big issue for us as our massive redstone machines can decrease fps dramatically. If you do have a dedicated graphics card, go to the GPU's settings and put in javaw.exe to the list to run the dedicated card as opposed to the integrated graphics. There is one bad side to doing this: Whenever you run, or a program runs javaw.exe, it will ALWAYS use the dedicated card which will drain batteries on laptops. I hope this "heads-up" was useful for you. Have fun building!

The Learner's area will be cleared soon.


Hello there, The Learner's area will be cleared on Saturday June 29th. If you would like to show your creation to a mod/admin for a possible rankup, ask them soon. If your creation has not been finished yet, feel free to ask a mod/admin to save it for you. Remember: Mods/admins are allowed to deny your request to save a creation. If you can't contact a mod/admin in time, place a sign on the reportboard at '/warp report' to make sure it will be noticed by a mod/admin before the plot will be cleared.

Learner's plot will be reset soon


Hei, we are going to have a new learner's plot reset May 13. I hope that everyone is becoming well prepared. And we do accept if anyone wants their creation stored, we if could refuse to do it, if the creation is assumed as either crap or a copy from the internet. We want fresh ideas, new creations and creative invetions.

UPDATE: Just a small update from your staffmember Flandyn. If you want a schematic of your creation. Do /warp report. We've made this report board so people can request things like: Griefs, Wants a plot, Schematic, World Edit help, or anything else.

Your Beloving Norwegian:

Server downtime


Hey guys, I know everyone is waiting for the server to get back online, so I wanted to give you an idea of what happened.
In a nutshell, the server box started having hardware issues again, and after seeing this happen so many times over the last months we decided to switch to a different hosting model. Instead of owning and maintaining a physical box we will move to a virtualized cloud hosting solution. This is going to take some time as we need to transfer gigabytes of data. Please bear with us, and as always, we're looking forward to seeing you on the server!

UPD: File and database migration complete, bringing up the server and testing, temp lockdown via whitelist.
UPD2: Back up!
UPD3: As of March 12th, 10AM GMT, the hoster is migrating our server to another hardware node which will cause several hours of downtime.
UPD4: We're back online.
UPD5: Ok guys, we're at a point where we decide whether we want to keep the new hoster or not. If they can't rectify this issue today, we'll be looking for alternatives. Sorry about that, you know we are getting frustrated just as much as you are.
UPD6 Back online, and hopefully this will last.
