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…

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?

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…
