Nameserver Change – May Appear Offline

Nameserver Change – May Appear Offline

I’ve just changed our nameservers (this is who manages our domain and all connections to it) from CloudFlare to Google. Any DNS change, such as this one, can take time to fully prorogate through the internet. Some users may see the website or Minecraft server as offline for short period. It is not actually offline! If you see if offline you can try clearing your cache, and even try changing your DNS servers to Google’s (8.8.8.8 and 8.4.4.4), but you…

$125 Server Upgrade Goal

$125 Server Upgrade Goal

Hey everyone! You may have noticed a lot of new new merch being released recently. Here’s the situation: with so many new players joining recently we are frequently hitting our server’s player limit and we’ve been faced with a tough decision: should we reduce some settings to improve server performance, or upgrade our hardware? It looks like in order to support more than 50 players online with our current hardware we need to reduce view distances, reduce mob spawn rates,…

Limited Edition Phantom Rank

We are going to try something new! Right now we have a limited edition rank available for purchase on our donation store.

Come see the 1.13 Spawn!

Come see the 1.13 Spawn!

Hey everyone! I’d like all of you to come see the progress we are making on the 1.13 server. Spawn is looking absolutely fantastic thanks to @FoolOfHearts#5110 and the entire staffing team spending many hours building it and terraforming it into the world. Right now you can NOT play/build in this world, but feel free to explore a little bit and get situated with your new home! Notice: We need everyone to sign in here at least once so that…

We Are Waiting Until 1.13.1

We Are Waiting Until 1.13.1

One week ago today Mojang released their first 1.13.1 snapshot, fixing a bug in the world generation that caused some natural structures (temples, villages, etc) to not generate in the world. I was not aware of this bug until today, when they released their second snapshot for 1.13.1 and I began looking into what exactly they were fixing. If we release a 1.13 server now, the world we use will be permanently missing some of it’s structures. We don’t know…

Potential 1.13 Server Soon!!!

Potential 1.13 Server Soon!!!

The entire staffing team is working tirelessly on preparing a 1.13 server with the plugins that are working. Jereth Khan on Discord had a brilliant idea that allowed us to begin working on the new world without schematics. This new process will take longer, but we are hoping to release the server by the end of the week (as long as nothing goes wrong, which it might). The plan is to have both servers running at the same time, but…

38 Plugins Working, 21 Broken or in Progress

38 Plugins Working, 21 Broken or in Progress

I’ve been watching the progress of all of our plugins very closely, and running the latest versions of each of them on a test server almost daily. Several of our plugins have been releasing 1.13 dev versions, but are still not fully compatible with 1.13. For example, WorldEdit has been releasing 1.13 dev versions for weeks, but it still doesn’t support schematics – which we need in order to put the new spawn into the new world. As of right…

Community YouTube Playlist!

Community YouTube Playlist!

Hey everyone! We have a YouTube playlist with all the videos that have ever been made on our server. These videos are featured on our YouTube channel (and I love being able to look back on them)! If you’ve ever uploaded a video that was recorded on Altitude and it isn’t in this playlist, let me know! I’ll be sure to get it added. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLI54g8by81bSGDzeE2fH1osn-hNI-KnE4

Survival Loot Regenerates!

Survival Loot Regenerates!

Important: Do not break natural spawning chests in survival! The loot in these chests regenerates so that everyone on the server can loot the same chest once. The way it works is: every time a chest is opened it checks who is opening it. If the person opening it has already opened that chest, it does not generate loot. but, if a new person opens it, it will generate loot. There is a 6 hour cooldown on generating loot to…

Altitude Stickers (Again!)

If you haven’t gotten your ALTITUDE sticker yet it’s not too late. We’ve recently released a new line of Altitude merchandise and I needed to test the product, so I ordered a TON of Altitude stickers! I have them both with and without the server IP. If you would like one at a lower price than the official store, just donate $3 at https://donate.alttd.com/category/573021 and private message me your address. If you want more than one, donate $2.50 for each…
