The Forums are Back!

The Forums are Back!

The official Altitude forums are back by popular demand! Many of you have requested a way to share ideas, show off creations, collaborate with others, and communicate with staff in a more organized way than Discord. We’re excited to announce that our forums have officially re-opened and are ready for all of that and more! The forums will now be the official place to report bugs, suggest ideas and events, advertise what your shops and towns, and more. We will…

We Are Not on 1.13.2 Yet!

We Are Not on 1.13.2 Yet!

Mojang released Minecraft 1.13.2 today, but we have not updated yet. It will likely be a couple of days before we do. Until we update, you MUST continue using 1.13.1 to connect to the server! If you are unable to connect to Altitude, you are likely using the wrong version. To change your Minecraft version you can follow the guide on Mojang’s website: https://help.mojang.com/customer/portal/articles/1475923-changing-game-versions.

Synced Inventories Have Been Installed

Synced Inventories Have Been Installed

Inventories and economy data now sync between survival servers. I understand some Apex data has been lost (no Summit data should have been lost.) We will work on restoring lost data over the next week but it will take us some time PLEASE BE PATIENT! Only admins and head admins can access the data, so they will be working hard to work through everyone’s requests. We have backups of the data so nothing is lost DO NOT FREAK OUT!

Merged Inventories Coming (for real this time)!

Merged Inventories Coming (for real this time)!

On Saturday, October 20th, at 8PM CDT (Oct 21th 1AM GMT), we will install a plugin that will merge player data 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 & enderchest. To make sure you don’t lose your stuff, everyone should…

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…
