What’s New: Week 7

What’s new:

  • Updated server to Spigot 1.7.5 (Supports 1.7.9 clients)
  • Updated plugins
  • Removed TrainCarts (useless)
  • Removed PurpleIRC because nobody uses IRC.
  • Removed PingTab because it did not work with the 1.7.5 update
  • Removed BKCommonLib because of the evil it causes
  • Fixed major lag caused by a large amount of mine carts near a house.

Current Issues:

  • Ping in player list is currently broken
  • alfonsojon still has not gone through rank applications. He seems to have a minor bug and he probably needs to be rebooted. Will be worked on. Until then, give him a break.

What’s New: Week 1

Hey guys, I figured I should start posting about what’s new on Livecraft. Although I will not post a new article every week, they will be counted on a weekly basis.

What’s new this week:

  1. Made sponges craftable, useful for underwater bases or pesky cave waterfalls. Use /recipe sponge to figure out how to craft it.
  2. Fixed a bug where the flatlands and main worlds were sharing an inventory, which is not good.
  3. Updated server & plugins, should be running smoother. Please post on the website’s “Bug Reports” forum if you find otherwise.
  4. Increased the maximum player count from 24 players to 32.

We’re Back!

Livecraft is back online after a long period of being down. I was going to launch the server tomorrow at 3:00 PM Eastern Time, but I am going on a date with my girlfriend. I have reduced the max players to 24 players in order to keep the server running quick. Overall, I have made a bunch of changes to keep the server running at its top performance while keeping it safe from DDoS attacks and cheaters. Please let me know if you encounter any issues, and I appreciate all of you guys for your support.

What’s new:

  1. There is a border (made by WorldBorder) on all worlds (a 5,000 block radius)
  2. The world is pre-rendered, ensuring chunks render quickly
  3. I have replaced Deadbolt with LWC. All chests are now private immediately when placed.
  4. I replaced Multiverse with My Worlds. My Worlds is a fast, functional, and up-to-date alternative to Multiverse.
  5. Maximum player count reduced from 32 to 24.
  6. Building in “The End” world has been disabled, and the game mode for “The End” is set to adventure.

Important Updates

Livecraft is undergoing some maintenance currently and should be back online by Friday, February 23rd, 2014. The server has been reset, and there is now a radius on the world in order to prevent the world from growing too large. Overall, the server should feel much faster, so I do hope you guys enjoy the changes. I also replaced Deadbolt with LWC. Chests are now private by default, but this can be changed after placing the chest.

32 Players!

Today, we hit a new record to max players: 32. Livecraft was full today as of 2:17 PM EST, or 7:17 PM GMT. Here is a screenshot!

32 Players

This was a great opportunity to stress test the server and determine if we can or can’t handle 32 players. Turns out, we can easily handle 32. Once again, I wish you all a happy Thanksgiving.
