And the Spawn Contest Winner:


I will start this post by saying: "Thanks for all the hard work put into a the spawn contest." We had some great builds to choose from. Neoblade1624 didn't manage to show up under the judging, so Flandyn and Emilgardis took the resposibility in their own hands. And picked out a new awesome spawn. It came out pretty well, though it was a tough choice. I hope you all like, or hopefully love the new spawn and enjoyed the contest! I did for sure atleast :D But to the more important part!

Because this contest promised out a rank up for the winner! So the Grand price winner Of The Spawn Contest Build! TVultimatrix! Congratulation. His spawn has a very original design for his exterior, we liked that he made the exterior so detailed. We missed that part on most of the spawns :3. He also made great places for signs! With a good general structure, this was a building many people can look up to. Littarly :P. TVultimatrix also scored for not using redstone on the floor but redstonelamps instead. Smart move :P. Thank you all for a great and amazing contest! We will try to make more of these challenges in the future :D

If you want to congratulate the winner: Write it as a comment here! :D (TVultimatrix is now both Senior and Donator!)

Your Beloving Norwegian:

Dubastot's Resignation


Hello everyone, I've been with this server for just over a year now and have had quite the time. Prior to joining, I had built my first "calculator" which was a bunch of and gates that added bits. Since then, I've moved onto larger tasks such as Space Invaders and general Redstone logic, in addition to all that I've been doing lots of building work. You can see a handful of the videos on them here (and I'd appreciate it if you checked my channel out and subbed ;) ):

Now that I've gained a lot of experience managing a server and learning CommandHelper as well as Java, I am ready to begin working on my own PvP survival server. With all of the time invested in that and getting an education, I'm no longer able to keep committed to my administrator responsibilities. Luckily, we're in the hands of Stym, the mods, and the other admins who I believe will do a great job in keeping this server an enjoyable experience for all. This does not mean I will disappear from the server like that (as I retain strong bonds with Stym and others), I'll continue to make periodic visits. The best way to keep up with me is by my Youtube channel.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask them in this post. Thank you for taking the time and reading this, I appreciate it!

Creative server status


Update for Tuesday July 24 1:00pm EST (7:00pm GMT): We're up and running folks!
Update for Tuesday July 24 10:00am EST (4:00pm GMT): Aaand we're back down. Hang tight, guys.

The Creative server has been having intermittent ISP outages over the last couple of days. Please bear with us why we are sorting these out. It's 11:18 PM Saturday local time, so it's kind of hard to reach the folks over at tech support.

Please keep checking back from time to time. To make your task a bit easier, here's a handy link that will display the status of the Creative server: RS server status. Note that this status only applies to the Creative server, as the SMP server is currently up and running.

Thanks for your patience guys.

The SMP server is now open!


The server address has changed:

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 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"


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.

Server updates


A couple of quick news.

First of all, the plugins on the creative server have been updated and we have the chat colors back.
Second, the SMP server is back online with all of the data perfectly safe and intact.

See you in-game!

It's alive! Or is it?


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 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


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:

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