Minecraft update + hardware fixed

First of all I want to tell ya what’s broken and what’s not.
Back to friday:
Somehow, the universe hates me, because my computer started failing a short time before I was done with the update. Now I have to do everything again which is kinda crappy.
After I checked the whole system I could tell that there was only one error on my mainboard:
Two capacitors at the additional 4 pin ATX voltage converter burnt out.(speaking of the 24 pin cable, not the 12V 4 pin CPU supply) After 2 days of searching and soldering my cousin and me could replace them. My computer is running stable and even better since then. xP
Still I have to use the onboard GFX because the handling of the board caused an old bug to rise from the dead. My PCIe 16x line is currently not working. Editing the MC map in a 3D editor will become a pain in my neck but the best just for you, guys, so I will start working on the MC update again. With or without my computer I will update the server today.

 

Minecraft server downtime MK2:

Since no one is online, the server will go down NOW.
I should have everything back and running before 20:00 CEST.
So the downtime is from 16:30 – 20:00 CEST.

As soon as the server is online again you will need the client update.
This time I will change the download link AFTER I did the update on the server.

 

Love and peace, Alzu

Fried hardware & minecraft madness… -.-“

Guys I have some very bad news for you today.
While I was doing some serious minecraft update shit, my computer crashed. Then… it crashed again, and again, and again. I couldn’t help but looking into my machine and I figured that my mainboard got frierd. I’m currently trying to fix that problem but apparently, since now I was unable to do so. I will turn on the MC server on it’s old version so you people can play. However you need the old client. Since I can’t access my old data I’m unable to upload it again, so DO NOT DOWNLOAD THE NEW CLIENT! I will break the link, so a download will be impossible. If you already did the update try to contact a member with the old client. I’m sorry, the universe hates me. I will give you some update news when my computer runs again.

Alzurana, out!

 

PS: Sora, it would be nice if you could pack the old client (if you still have it) and upload it as “minecraft.zip”. As soon as you did this the link will work again, so you !!don’t!! have to change the minecraft page!

*EDIT: Old vanilla minecraft server is online!

Minecraft is down, OH NOES!

As announced previously the minecraft server will go down for a while, now!
The downtime will begin today, at 16:00 CEST and last for at least 2-4 hours.
That means that the server will be back sometime between 18:00 – 20:00 CEST.

 

Mods to be updated:

  • Buildcraft 2.1.1 (2 new modules)
  • RedPower 1.7.1 (2 new modules)
  • Craftbukkit revision 1060
  • Industrial Craft 8.55_02 + IshFix 0.4

Other things to be done:

  • Limit the borders of our map to +-15000 coordiantes on x/z axe
  • Deleting empty parts of the world
  • Bugfixing
  • Whitelist Update

Expected bugs (yes they’re expected):

  • We may will have some problems with the give or /i command. Items won’t appear in your inventory even though you got them. I will try to fix that. If you look into a chest and use the /i command it will work properly. If I can’t fix the issue in time we will have to live with it for a while.

 

That’s it, I wish you a nice downtime. :O

 

PS:
Of course you will need a new client after the update.
The client will be released at16:00 CEST so you can update while the server is down.

*EDIT: Client is up and ready!

Out of my head! Me haz BUKKIT!

Intresting stuff… I dreamed, that I was writing a blog entry because someone buggered me to do so. YES I’M LOOKING AT YOU, BYTE!

 

Well anyways, I got some news from krnlyng.

 

“But who the fuck is ‘krnghrlyngh’  Alzu?”

First of all, his name is krnlyng.
Second, he ports mods that usually only work with vanilla_minecraft to craftbukkit, our old (less buggy) minecraft server. You maybe remember that time when we had world edit. When we had Permissions. When you could type “/tp Alzu” and you were ported to me without that annoying map-loading bug. But I’m loosing the point. He told me that I should have a look at the forum post and read the posts of the last 2 days.
That’s what I’ve found:

Maeyanie, on 30 August 2011 – 08:33 PM, said: In other news, BuildCraft 2.1.0 and RedPower 1.7.1 are ported and in testing, they should be out Soon™

 

“But what does that mean, Alzu?”

That means that we’re finally going back to bukkit.
WITH buildcraft 2.1.0 (update from 1.7.x)
WITH oil
WITH industrial craft (ver 8.55_02 no IC²)
WITH redstone triggered lamps in different colors from eloraam
WITH ALL OUR BUKKIT PLUGINS! ALL!
THAT’S OVER 9000 about 20.

I’m currently testing some stuff, updating plugins, checking ID’s.
We should be bukkit ready on the weekend, when all the testing is done. For that I will have to shut down the miencraft server for about 2-4 hours, since I have to prepare the map for it and test some new plugins with our old map. I will do that in the middle of the night or in the mornig. Hopefully no one will be online.
I wish I could tell you that I will install IC² right away, but it’s not out yet. Also I’m sad that this update came before minecraft 1.8 . BUT WE WILL BE BACK AT HOME! WITH BUKKIT! *runs against a wall*

That’s it, fasten your seat belts, we’re going home!

Quick MC hotfix

Hey guys,

real quick!
We did a fast update on the server and client. Runecraft and landmarks will now work properly.
Also don’t place wires next to crystal chargers. It’s buggy.
Just go to the minecraft page and load the updated mods.

Have fun, and see ya!

Minecraft server/client update

Hey Leute, ich freue mich euch mitteilen zu dürfen, dass es wieder ein Update gibt. Craftbukkit ist leider immer noch nicht zurück, aber wir arbeiten daran. Der Versuch die Mods mit den Plugins zu kombinieren kostete uns 8Std. Alzu wird sich nun mit Entwickler des ModLoaders absprechen.

Bleibt auf dem laufenden, hier auf 2geeks-at 😀

Hier geht es weiter, für die Anleitung 😀

Changelog:

  • Server

    • Buildcraft unterstützt nun Redstone Pipes zum Erkennen von Items in einer Pipe.
    • Industrial Craft buggt weniger. (von 8.50 zu 8.55_02 | Luminatoren sollten nicht mehr flackern, ebenso wie Wasserkraftwerke<- Tja, tu'n sie doch. :( )
    • /i geht wieder. Zudem kann man nun mit z.b. “/weather none” den Regen abschalten.
    • NEUE MOD: RedPower und Integrated Redstone. Mehr dazu auf der mod Page.
  • Client
    • Eine Minimap Mod wurde hinzugefügt.
    • ToManyItems unterstützt nun damage values (farbige Wolle z.b.)
    • Das Texturepack “ovus rustic pack” ist nun standardmässig verfügbar

A new buildcaft and hopefully back to bukkit.

Hey guys, real quick:

I just figured, that the Mod Loader seems to be 1.7.3 compatible, which means that we’re going back to craftbukkit plus build craft and industrial craft IF it’s possible. I really hope so. :S Second, there is a new buildcraft preview of new features that will come soon. Have a look, it’ll be awesomesoace!
Video below!

Back to the roots: Vanilla Minecraft

Hey guys!

Today I have a HUUUGE update on our minecraft server for you!
Here’s the changelog:
1. I got rid of bukkit. (Maybe just for a while, I hope so! 🙁 )
That means, that all old bukkit mods (except runecraft) won’t work anymore. I’m sorry. Later in the future, I will do a rollback to bukkit. Right now we have huge problems with bringing all the plugins together, so I had to disable it for a while.
2. We have 2 brand new mods installed.
-Buildcraft
-IndustrialCraft
They are HUGE, you should check out the features on youtube:
(German video)

 

*EDIT:
I am sorry but the youtube video has been removed. Instead I will post the links to the minecraftforum and the wiki:
[Buildcraft at Minecraftforum]
[Industrialcraft at Minecraftforum]
[Industrialcraft Wiki]

 

YOU DON’T HAVE TO DO THE INSTALL! The download of the recommended client will below this post!
3. As said above, you need a special client to connect.
The client is modded with both mods plus “to many items”
to many items is the replacement for our /i command.
Simply open your inventory and press ‘o’ like ooohhh.

Download:
[Modded Minecraft 1.7.3]

*EDIT2:
Please go to the minecraft tab and check for the client download, there. Thank you. 🙂

How to install:
1. Open up %appdata%, if you don’t know how to do this, start>run, then type in %appdata%
2. Backup your .minecraft folder
3. delete the old .minecraft folder (of course not the backup)
4. extract the new .minecraft folder where the old was.
5. CAKE!

I hope you’ll have fun with the new mods.
If something shouldn’t work, feel free to leave a comment!

Minecraft Server update 1.7.3

Actually some would guess the update from 1.7.2 to 1.7.3 wouldn’t bring such a difference. That’s not true. With 1.7.3 the bukkit team removed a huge bug, which caused the server to occupy more and more RAM. With the update we won’t need restarts every 6 hours anymore. I will do those restarts now once a day at about 3 o clock in the morning.
Every medal has 2 sides. The update to 1.7.3 is causing a bug which randomly deletes contents of signs, furnaces and chests. This bug should be really rare but still it’s there. So if signs or chests are empty we can’t do a roll back. It’s a bug and we have to wait for another update. I am sorry but I currently can’t do anything about it. I still hope that your minecraft experience will be bugfree and smooth.

Have fun guys! You will hear from me, soon!

Minecraft plugin update

We did it!
After hours of doing nothing an minutes of work we finally checked all minecraft plugins on fragomat.net and updated them if nessecary. A lot of sweat and fighting, but finally all plugins run on their newest versions. The funny thing about this fact is, that the server appears to drain more CPU load since we did that update. Also some plugins tend to bug more than before.

Plugins updated are:

AdminCmd
AuthMe
BedRespawn
Craftbook
