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…

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…

Mojang Planning Release of 1.13 on July 18th

Mojang Planning Release of 1.13 on July 18th

Even though this is still not a official date and they could change it, I think it’s time for another update about our status surrounding 1.13. Once 1.13 is released, it will likely be a few more weeks until we are able to update too. We need to wait for Spigot, the program this server runs on, to update as well, along with all of the plugins that we use. The good news is that the team behind Spigot have…

Server Crash July 4th 12:05PM EST

Server Crash July 4th 12:05PM EST

Due to a typo in the script, during our daily noon backup, the hard drive partition for the server completely filled up and the server was no longer able to write anything to disk. This corrupted several files including players home data, nickname data, and mcmmo party data. I am not sure what all was effected, but it appears to be pretty wide-spread. I am currently in the process of attempting to restore from our most recent backup. However, the…

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…
