This Thursday at 3PM UTC the servers will go down from anywhere between 15 and 30 minutes to switch to a different Java version. The current version we use will no longer be free to use so we have to remove the current version and install openjdk 8. Just to be clear this is not an update to 1.15 but we will release more information about 1.15 soon.
Hey everyone as I’m sure you know 1.15 has officially been released. We can’t update yet since spigot and by extension all the plugins we use haven’t updated. But we can start testing, just like we have been doing with the snapshots. To test the vanilla server performance properly we need as many people as possible to join. If you have time to help us test come join us at
22.214.171.124:25567. The goal is to simulate what would normally happen, so just walk around/explore and play the game as you normally would.
Since we have no plugins looting player bases is not allowed. Please follow normal Altitude rules and don’t do things that would normally be prevented by plugins
After just over a week of building from over 50 different participants, the judging team has finished the difficult task of voting for the top builds across the event. Due to some categories having significantly more participants, winners have been picked based on their scores. The event winners are: theycallmepib, the_amazing_rat, fuyu_no_ouka, PandaGamer606, Rahamza, _lexu, AnCapistan, BasicBrandon, Mj_cheng, matt20003, MineFlo11, Elapse04, and dragonsprit with a special commendation to the_amazing_rat, mj_cheng, and matt20003 who all scored top marks across the board.
To collect your prizes you can use
/kit eventwinner on Atoll. All participants who also made an active effort in their builds can also redeem their participation prize by doing
/kit participant on Atoll. If you can’t do this but you think you were on the list of people who should have gotten it please dm me on Discord. Empty your inventory first so it all fits and please do it quickly as these kits will be removed after a week!
After the closure of this event, we also found this to be the perfect opportunity to reopen #e-suggestions for Halloween related suggestions. Please remember to follow the guidelines in the pinned message of this channel.
We have added authentication to the server. You will be asked to authenticate about once a month, you will simply have to type in chat what the server asks of you and you will be able to play again.
We will be making punishments for chat offense display publicly. We chose to do this so that it’s very clear that staff is handling something and since it’s often perceived as more serious if there is an official message by the server for everyone to see. This does mean that people might try to respond to these messages. This is not allowed and will be punishable as well. If you see someone get muted or warned just move on, there is no need to comment on it.
Not all punishments will be public, they will only be viewable in chat if staff feels it’s something everyone in chat should be aware of (for example if there is an argument in chat we might choose to let it display publicly so people know to stop talking about it, an xray punishment would not be displayed in chat.) All punishments are still viewable on the website. Please keep in mind we still do not allow people discussing punishments in chat, any issues with punishments should be taken up with a higher staff member either through discord or through the support form.
We have expanded the world border in the survival servers from 22k to 25k. This means there are many new biomes and places to explore! We recognize that many of you are waiting eagerly for 1.14, and while we unfortunately cannot update the main servers right now, we hope this chance to explore more of the world will help alleviate the pain of not updating right now. We hope you enjoy!
We are looking for community members who are interested in helping us moderate Altitude! We are opening applications for all servers. Moderator duties include: upholding the server rules and assisting players with using our services. Each moderator is assigned to one home server but is also expected to help moderate all other servers including creative and Discord.
Applicants should be friendly, helpful, and professional. Applicants are required to have been a member for at least 1 month, be 16 years or older, and play at least 7 hours per week.
Applications will be open for a week. To apply go to: https://alttd.com/apply
We are creating a Patreon minecraft server! It will be released at 6 PM UTC August 10 2019. This server will be close to vanilla survival gameplay and utilizes the new 1.14.4 release of minecraft. To play on this server, you have to become a patron of our server https://www.patreon.com/alttd for the amount of either $10 or $15 monthly. This server is intended for our more mature players, so they may continue to have fun and enjoy the server while also keeping the generally younger audience of the main survival servers happy. The features it will have are already listed on the website.
We have decreased the sell prices of some farmable items at spawn. It was much too easy to get money through mass farming things like sugar cane and this caused an influx of too much money into the economy. This reduction will help with better balancing the economy and improving player experience. In addition, poorly optimized farms for things like sugar cane reduced server performance, so we hope this change will allow the economy to become more balanced and lower the incentive to create giant, lag-creating farms.
We have installed FastAsyncWorldEdit on creative, this has much better performance than normal worldedit which means players can use it. There might be issues with it, if you find any please report them to us on discord. Depending on the issues we find we might remove worldedit again! And it’s likely limits will be placed to prevent people from lagging creative with it. If you find anything that you think might break the server please don’t report it publicly or spread it to others, this will only ruin the fun for other people and will get you and anyone using it in trouble!
