Server Updates!

This is it! We’re resetting the world at around 2pm EDT on 9/27 (tomorrow) and releasing the long anticipated NEW SPAWN too! Please bear with us that the spawn is not going to be at 100% as there are things that we couldn’t do until we reset and go official. Features that we had before the update will return to their normal state soon! That’s it, we’re going official on 1.13! Thank you for your long wait and have fun!

Here is an update on the current status of the server: @everyone As you all know, we’re currently in the beta stage with limited plugins. This update has been much longer that we’ve expected and longer than all our previous plugins since we are still waiting on plugin developers and SpigotMC to update. Most of the plugins have to be updated as 1.13 has brought many changes to the behind-the-scene things, such as block id and their data values. Plugins that uses these must be updated in order to be compatible with 1.13. Most importantly, we are not only waiting for plugins to update but also SpigotMC to release a stabler build. SpigotMC is the main platform for us to be able to run a semi-vanilla server. To prevent unintended data loss, we must wait for SpigotMC to release a stabler build. Why does it take the devs so long to update their plugins? Well, it takes time for devs to update and run tests, but another reason is that the first build of 1.13 might be unstable which gives a reason for devs to wait for an official update (such as 1.13.1, not a snapshot). There are also devs that might have abandoned their work and we are searching for replacements. What have we been doing during the wait? We are always checking the plugins’ websites for updates. We are also working on a new website which complies with GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation). The new website will not be a forum and does not require any of our users to register for an account. We are also working on an official Miccraft wiki to help new and existing players along your adventure. We are sorry for the long wait but we sincerely ask for your patience. We are as excited as you are to release our full 1.13 update.

Dearest Miccrafters, It is our pleasure to inform you that the Miccraft Server is moving! The new update is about to roll in with new water biomes, lots of friendly mobs and some new hostile ones! In order to let everyone have a chance to explore these new biomes, and meet these new mobs, we need to take drastic measures. In its current state, the Survival Map has been explored far and wide, seen so many updates that it has suffered from a lot of things; bad chunks loading, weird terrain generation and some file corruption over the last 6 years. Thus creating in the excess of tens of millions of files for the server to load; we have run out of room to store the map. I’m sure you have noticed this if you have used the Live Map recently; the world is very large. We aim to fix that! Hence it is with great pleasure and excitement, that we announce that the Survival server and map will be completely reset. The server will be completely upgraded to run the latest and greatest of what Mojang has to offer! We will be upgrading our physical infrastructure to ensure lightening speed for your mining experience! -From 8 to 16 GB RAM – To allow the server to keep more in memory! -Solid State Drive (SSD) – For faster loading of chunks! -Brand new spawn/mall/server structures – To bring on a better user experience! We will be temporarily closing the server to prepare and work on the update. As you all may have noticed, Minecraft 1.13 is now released, the countdown timer to the temporary closure of Miccraft to update to 1.13 is now ticking. We will close the server once it has become available to us WITHOUT further notice.
FAQ’s: When will this all happen? This will take place when 1.13 becomes available to us. Why do we need to reset the server? Short answer, the servers too full and chunks are becoming corrupted. Will the old world be downloadable? Unfortunately no, the world is nearly a terabyte and has many corrupted chunks. Will I be able to bring over my items/inventory? No, the survival server is being completely reset for a new era of Miccraft 2.0 – A better user experience. Can I apply to have my builds transferred over to the new server like before? No, the survival server is being completely reset for a new era of Miccraft 2.0 – A better user experience. Will this affect my recent donation’s claim blocks? In good faith, we will credit recent* donors with their claim blocks.
Please check back on this post as we will edit this as more questions arise, so please check frequently for up to date information. We can’t wait to see what you do with this new world! A New Seed, a New Dawn… a New Game! The Miccraft Elders
