Hello guys, I’m posting about the extreme immaturity that has been happening on the server. I was dealing with it for a while, but now it’s getting beyond ridiculous. You guys know how to spell, you can speak english, and you can talk without using the word faggot or “fgt”. Using these words occasionally was fine, but now it’s becoming ridiculous.
Is it possible for you guys to grow up? I am really getting tired of you guys acting like immature five year olds. I expect more out of you, we’re supposed to be a family friendly server.
Please grow up.

As you may or may not know, Minecraft 1.6 is right around the corner. Minecraft 1.6 is due on July 1st (Porky_Sporky’s birthday :D), but the server WILL NOT be ready for Minecraft 1.6 for a while. We are not resetting the map, but Spigot (our server software) will take a bit to update to Minecraft 1.6 and then our plugins must then be updated to be compatible with Spigot for Minecraft 1.6 as well. This process can take up to a week, so be aware of any news on the website regarding Minecraft 1.6.
Goals for Minecraft 1.6:
- New spawn?
- Builder plots near spawn
- Increased stability
- Skylands RPG world possible
- Removal of creative from main world, usage of flatlands for creative tasks.
- Permissions fixes and updates
- Texture pack update (Same texture pack, but updated)
- Bug fixes!
Bugs to be fixed:
- Inventory being cleared when disconnecting in creative
- Flatlands not working
- Portals not working properly for all users
- Random server crashes
- Timeout error when trying to log in
As usual, this will be hopefully done before we launch for 1.6. The server will not be down, but you CAN NOT UPDATE TO 1.6. When the server description is prefixed by [1.6], you can then update.
Regards, Jonathan Alfonso
P.S.: Keep a backup of your 1.5 JAR file (located in %APPDATA%/.minecraft/bin for Windows users) prior to updating. You can swap out the new Minecraft JAR with your backup easily by renaming them (i.e. minecraft.jar and 1_5_backup.jar, minecraft.jar and 1_6_backup.jar).

The server will be undergoing maintenance on the back end of the server, so there may be server shut downs occasionally. The server will be running on a regular schedule tomorrow.
Here are a few screenshots of Livecraft using the “GLSL Shaders” mod. Enjoy!
Here are some amazing builds by an architect named “oldkitbag”. He and Lonnie3 built our spawn when Livecraft was a PVP server. He’s currently our only server architect, and here’s why; also, thrown into the mix is a mansion built by Porky_Sporky.
As a result of some down-time, a simple backup site has been pulled up. The backup website will contain basic information on what’s going on when the server’s experiencing difficulties and whatnot.
You can reach this site here: http://bck.livecraft.us/
It might be a good idea to bookmark that as a convenience.

Hey, Livecraft is now backed by Cloudflare. The server will work the same exact way, but we’re behind Cloudflare’s network, preventing attacks on the website and server.

As an interim fix for the crashing issues, I have temporarily switched Livecraft back to Craftbukkit. You may experience more lag than usual, but there should not be any more crashes. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to report any bugs!
** This was fixed by updating CraftBook.
Hey guys, I apologize for my inactivity. School’s wrapping up and I have finals to prepare for, so I won’t be online. Additionally, my computer monitor broke (it squeals whenever it’s on), so I need to repair that as well.
THE IMPORTANT STUFF
As many of you have noticed, the server has become very unstable as of late. I am working my best to fix this, but I can’t test by myself. I need you guys to report to email@example.com when the server has crashed as soon as possible, if possible. I need to know when the server goes down so I can fix it.
An upcoming event is the release of Minecraft 1.6. This version will have many new features; however, as of now, it does not have any new changes to world generation. Unless a change to the world generation format is implemented, there will be no map reset. Additionally, there will be nothing “extremely new” in the server. Things should stay the same but be a lot cooler 🙂
There -may- be downtime in the near future (tomorrow or Saturday) because our internet bill is overdue. I am not sure how long it will be down, but as always, we’ll be back up and ready for you guys to play again ASAP.
