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,…

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.

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…

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

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…
