[IMPORTANT] Permissions reset.

Me, being the genius I am, forgot to back up permissions. Not only that, I managed to accidentally delete all of our plugins. This includes Essentials and GroupManager. Your items are fine, but it’ll say “Welcome, blah to Livecraft!”, and permissions are currently not implemented. I’m working on fixing this asap, and I will have the whitelist off ASAP

Apologies, Jonathan Alfonso (Alfonsojon)

My personal blog is now up!

Hey guys, as you may know by now, I’m a tech guy. I do tech as a living, and I’m planning on keeping it that way. In order to just have a place to put my tech babbles and rantings, I’ve made a separate blog in case any of your are interested. My blog is at alfonsojon.wordpress.com, and it’s titled “{musings of alfonsojon}”. I hope you enjoy!

[IMPORTANT] Update on Downtime ETA

Hey guys, sorry to delay, but I’ve been busy around July 4th, and now I’m tired. I have a lot of work to do on the server and I don’t want the server to be half-ready when I launch. My goal is to have it working as nicely as possible, so more downtime will be necessary. I can’t put deadlines on myself, but the goal is to have it online by this upcoming Thursday Sunday.

No guarantees, but that’s what I’m hoping for. Sorry for the delays,

Jonathan Alfonso (alfonsojon)

[IMPORTANT] Emergency Reset

Hi guys, rolling the map back didn’t work. The server map is slowly regenerating. I honestly don’t know what’s going on, but the map is just going haywire. The flatlands, redstone flatlands, and skylands worlds were saved; however, the rest is not able to be saved. I’m sorry guys 😦

The reset will be taking place today at 3:00 PM EDT/8:00 PM UTC. If I didn’t have to reset, I wouldn’t. I’m sorry guys.

Server Development Tips

Hi guys, due to the amount of requests, I will be putting FAQ pages and tutorials to the website on how to do certain aspects of server setup. One of my first tutorials will be how to convert PermissionsEx to GroupManager, and the next will be covering setting up and using a dedicated Linux host; furthermore, it will cover which operating systems I recommend and do not recommend.

Hopefully this will be of use to many.

[IMPORTANT] Map Rollback

Hey guys, I rolled the map back to the way it was as of June 30th at 12:05 AM EST.

The world experienced severe corruption simply because the world got too big. You guys were building so much and exploring so many chunks, that the maps simply couldn’t fit in the 4GiB RAM disk  (storage of files in memory) anymore. Because it ran out of space, the chunks could not read or write properly, so they would regenerate. This caused many houses and builds such as my house and max0704’s hobbit home to simply disappear. Many other things had magically disappeared, so this prompted a map rollback.

The server will no longer store files on the RAM disk until I get a RAM upgrade and/or a Solid State Drive. Until then, you may notice slower world rendering

I apologise for any losses caused by this issue, and I will try my best to prevent something of this nature from occurring again.

With regards, Jonathan Alfonso (alfonsojon)
