Minecraft 1.5, Server Stability and More!

21 Mar 2013 10:45 PM | Deano in Minecraft

Just to let everyone know we are now running Minecraft 1.5. So if you have not done so, you can now update your clients and play on our server.


Over the recent months, we have noticed a few server stability issues along with finding some bugs, that we can just not iron out. To fix these issues and restore stability we have ordered another server box to add to our network.


We are going to use the new box to rebuild the Minecraft server, bit by bit. This allows us to make sure we have the latest versions of all the software we use, along with allowing us to reconfigure every plugin we use. Doing this on a new server will not only reduce any downtime but will also allow us to then clean up the old server and use it for other fun features such as Hunger Games and SkyBlock.

All this costs more money, so the donation bar has been adjusted accordingly. We do make it so you can play on our server without paying any money, but if you do donate, you get some really awesome perks and it allows us to continue to run and develop the server. Don't forget though that you can get FREE in-game bonuses and store credit just by using the vote links on the right hand side of the home page.


As soon as we have things running stable again you can expect some more changes and updates. Each of these updates will have their own announcement as they are implemented.


  • - New lobby and tutorial. (Almost finished)
  • - Merge the 2 towny worlds into 1 brand new world.
  • - Remove the old nether.
  • - Add a new nether for Towny.
  • - Add a new nether for Factions.
  • - Add Hunger games world / server.
  • - Add SkyBlock world / server.


Thanks for your continued support and patience.
