Merged Inventories Coming!

Merged Inventories Coming!

On Friday, October 12th, at 10PM CDT (Oct 13th 3AM GMT), I will be installing a plugin that will merge playerdata between both survival servers: Apex and Summit. Inventories, health, exp, and economy balances should carry between servers with this plugin. PLEASE NOTE: the plugin will not know which inventory it should import, so if you have been on both servers it will only take your Summit inventory. To make sure you don’t lose your stuff, everyone should be emptying…

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…

We’ve Switched to Waterfall!

We’ve Switched to Waterfall!

In order to support the growing community we have decided to go all-in with a potential solution: Waterfall. Waterfall allows us to run multiple Minecraft servers at the same time and link them together to feel like just one server. We’ve moved the nether and the end to their own servers, so when you go to them you are actually going to an entirely different server! We’ve also added a Resource world (server) that has a couple custom settings. Currently…

Replacing Residence with GriefPrevention

Replacing Residence with GriefPrevention

Due to the amount of issues we are having with Residence, we are reverting back to GriefPrevention for land claiming. Residence will remain on the server for a short period of time so that everyone can delete their Residence claims and re-protect their land with GriefPrevention instead. We’ve changed some settings in GriefPrevention so that players do _not_ earn claim blocks over time by playing. Instead, you must buy claim blocks with /buyclaimblocks. This way, you can buy as many…

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…

Final 1.12.2 Goodbye!

Final 1.12.2 Goodbye!

Thank you all for the great adventures and memories on 1.12.2! We are finally saying goodbye to that old world and moving on to new adventures and new experiences with 1.13.1. Thank you to everyone who came along on the journey! Here’s a final group photo to remember the times. We peaked at 85 people online during this photo!

24 Hour Notice & The 1.13 Team

24 Hour Notice & The 1.13 Team

The 1.13.1 upgrade is only 24 hours away, so make sure you have all the stuff you want to keep in your transfer plot! In roughly 22 hours I will be closing the current server so that I can install the new one! Also, I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has helped with this update. It would not have been possible without the help over the entire staffing team and the community here on Altitude. It…

Planning for Thursday Release

Planning for Thursday Release

Good morning! After a long, long wait, and many hurtles to overcome, I believe we are finally near ready to release the 1.13.1 server! There are a few things that aren’t ready yet (like creative and MyPet!), and I am sure that once the server goes public there will be lots of new bugs to fix, but we are at a point where the server seems overall pretty stable, and our small beta-testing team is struggling to find any more…

1.13.1 Server Plugins Almost Done!

1.13.1 Server Plugins Almost Done!

Hey everyone! Over the past couple weeks we’ve been finalizing everything for the new 1.13.1 server. As many of you know, the new player warp plugin is finished (we are making some last-minute minor tweaks), and now the same developer has finished our new playtime-ranking plugin! We are aware of the issues with the current AutoRank plugin, and are very excited to have our own in-house plugin starting with 1.13.1. The new command to check playtime will be **/playtime [name]**,…
