1.13.1 Survey

1.13.1 Survey

We’ve made a lot of changes over the past couple weeks in order to accommodate 1.13.1 and the larger player base! We knew the server would be busier once the new version dropped – but we weren’t prepared for the amount of players trying to play at once. Needless to say, our server was not set up to support 100-150 players online at once, and we’ve needed to make some pretty drastic changes quickly in order to support everyone trying…

New Plan: Dual Survival Servers

New Plan: Dual Survival Servers

As you all know, we’ve been struggling to support more people on Altitude – we’ve reached a point where Altitude can’t hold everyone who wants to be a part of it! Since Altitude is almost always full, some members would have eventually given up and left to go find another server. I believe that everyone here is part of Altitude because they like the features we offer and the way we run our server, so rather than making some of…

Unexpected 1.13.1 Lag

Unexpected 1.13.1 Lag

There is a lot of unexpected lag on the 1.13.1 server. At this time we are not sure why the server is struggling to run on 1.13.1 when it was running just fine on 1.12.2. It will likely take some time for us to fix. We first need to watch the server’s performance during normal operation carefully, taking reports of RAM utilization, CPU usage, and network bandwidth. At this time I am attempting to figure out how many players the…

1.13.1 is Finally Here!

1.13.1 is Finally Here!

The time has finally come: our OFFICIAL 1.13.1 server is public! It’s been a tough wait, but we’ve finally made it, and we hit some major milestones along the way. Over the past couple of months our community has grown tremendously. We have over 1,300 transfer plots claimed, and we pushed the limit of how many players the server can handle! Last month was also an incredible month for donations, and thank to all of your contributions we’ve been able…

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…

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…

Mojang Planning Release of 1.13 on July 18th

Mojang Planning Release of 1.13 on July 18th

Even though this is still not a official date and they could change it, I think it’s time for another update about our status surrounding 1.13. Once 1.13 is released, it will likely be a few more weeks until we are able to update too. We need to wait for Spigot, the program this server runs on, to update as well, along with all of the plugins that we use. The good news is that the team behind Spigot have…

New YouTube Channel!

New YouTube Channel!

We have a new YouTube channel! For the past few years I’ve been uploading all of Altitude’s videos to my personal channel. Moving forward, all Altitude related videos will go onto a dedicated channel, that way the content is separated and consistent. Hopefully, we can also expand upon this channel and try out new things in the future: like inviting other content creators to contribute, featuring stuff created by our community, and more? It doesn’t have any views or subscribers,…
