looks like your trying to play minecraft

The server should be online and hopefully stable… I looked into upgrading to 1.7.10 or 1.8. sadly there isn’t enough mods to bring it up to the current level of awesome we were running. So I checked out some of the reasons the server was crashing. Most of them had to do with bukkit plugins. So It looks like we will have to wait until Sponge comes out probably the beginning of 2015.  Anyway Mcore and Factions are currently disabled. I dont think I will be able to bring them back online until then. So hide your stuff well.

So it looks like tekkit and 1.6.4 was just too buggy. We are switching over to Feed The Beast and hopefully everything should migrate fingers crossed.

So, it happened again. The server crashed….. but as far as I know It wasn’t due to any of the usual suspects.  The server is running esxi with virtualized os that runs Minecraft. The host machine has 32 gb of ram and the virtual machine running minecraft has 25 gb available to it. The problem this time around was a complete halt of host machine. When I connected to the DRAC of the host machine, a Dell PowerEdge R900, the machine was showing as power state off and I was not able to “power on remotely” however when I took a look at the physical machine the fan’s were full blast and no post… So Im guessing some type of hardware / power issue. Im not sure if the input power fluctuated causing the machine to error or if there was another part of the hardware that was failing. If anyone is experienced with diagnosing PowerEdge machines and would like to give me a hand with fixing these issues that would be great. The server should be back online for now.

Due to popular demand the weather has been disabled on the main “world”.Don’t worry you can still enjoy rain and snow in other dimensions! For those of you who would like to disable weather on your own server, here is how to do it. We use worldguard to protect spawn but wg actually has a a lot of other configs as well. One of those configs is (disable-weather) You can find the yml file here:

/WorldGuard/worlds/<worldname>/config.yml

By default the world’s config file will not have much in it. Remove {} and type in

weather:
disable-weather

Make sure to use spaces and not a tab, There are many other commands for coolness though worldguard. You can learn about what they do here: http://wiki.sk89q.com/wiki/WorldGuard/Configuration/Bukkit
