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!)

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…

Early 1.13 Support Added

Early 1.13 Support Added

Players can now connect to the server using 1.13! The server itself is still running 1.12.2, so none of the 1.13 features will work and there will be some bugs (like doors not rendering correctly), but we wanted to add support for the new version as soon as possible – and it’s done! The world has not reset yet, and we are still waiting for the server itself to be able to run 1.13, but at least now you can…

Mojang has released 1.13!

Mojang has released 1.13!

Mojang has officially released 1.13 today! We still aren’t quite ready to update the server, but everyone should make sure that they are ready, cause it will be soon! Our plan is to update as soon as we possibly can, and there might not be much of a warning ahead of time, so it is important to make sure you have all the stuff you want to keep in the transfer world at all times! You can access the transfer…

First 1.13 Test Server

First 1.13 Test Server

The team over at spigotmc.org released a version of Spigot (the program that runs Altitude) that works on 1.13-pre7 last Saturday. They stressed that this was a pre-release and is not stable for a public server, but it did allow us to test all of our plugins and see how much needs to be done before we can update to 1.13. I found out that at least 15 of our plugins are currently not compatible with 1.13. They either fail…

Server Crash July 17th 10:30AM EST

Server Crash July 17th 10:30AM EST

The server ran out of disk space this morning during a routine backup, resulting in the server no longer being able to write to any files and crashing. The cause of this issue was a new backup script, that was written a few days ago to fix some lag during backups, failing to delete pending-backups after they are offloaded to the backup server. We’ve fixed the script, however this event has corrupted some data on the server and we are…
