Limited Edition Phantom Rank

Limited Edition Phantom Rank

We are going to try something new! Right now we have a limited edition rank available for purchase on our donation store. This rank has all the same perks as the Ultimate rank, and is normally the same price, however right now it’s 50% off! That means, for $50 you get all the perks of the normal $100 rank PLUS a unique prefix never seen on Altitude before. However, here’s the catch: This rank is only available during our “Beta…

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…

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…

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…

New Rules and Other Changes

New Rules and Other Changes

Hello everyone! With 1.13 just around the corner a lot is about to change around Altitude. We’ve spoken a lot about our plans for 1.13 and Altitude, but there will also be some unplanned changes coming up. I’ve recently been thinking about the server and I’ve decided it’s not in the best shape. I’m going to be implementing some changes with the goal of strengthening the community feel around here and reducing our focus on being big and famous. I…

How to Bring Stuff to New World

How to Bring Stuff to New World

1.13 brings water biomes, dolphins, shipwrecks, icebergs, coral, kelp and more – but to enjoy any of this on the Altitude server we need to generate a new world, so we’ve decided that for 1.13 we will be replacing the survival world with a brand new one. This means that the current world will be closed, and released to everyone as a download, and then we will generate a new world with a new seed. The new world will not…

Voting Is Fixed!

Voting Is Fixed!

We’ve heard your complaints about a couple of our voting websites and we’ve fixed them! One of the websites wasn’t registering your vote for a couple of hours, so we replaced that website with a new one. The double XP reward should work again! We ALSO heard that some people were having troubles voting on minecraftlist.org because it had a 24 hour cooldown unlike some of the other sites that reset the cooldown every day at midnight. This meant that…

Economy is Here!

Economy is Here!

After several weeks of testing and troubleshooting it’s finally time to announce that the economy is public! Everyone on the server can create shops, start auctions, and use the shops in spawn. You can create chest shops, by placing a chest and putting a sign on it, to sell, buy, and barter items between other players. You can create these shops anywhere in the world, and we recommend applying for a waypoint once you’ve set up shop! You can also…

Patreon & Donator Updates!

Our goal has always been to give our supporters something special to thank them for their support, without giving them an unfair advantage over other players. I’ve always believed the purpose of donating is to support the server you enjoy and show appreciation for the effort that the team behind it all puts in every day. With our team growing, and new ideas sparking, we’re looking to bring Altitude to the next level, and we need your support to do…
