Alternative site design

Some of you might noticed broken sub pages, etc. since yesterday.
Obviously, our previous skin broke with the recent wordpress update and that’s why all of you couldn’t access the minecraft page anymore, for example.
We’re working on a fix but for the time being I changed the sites design skin. Everything is available, again. 🙂

Sim City 5 – online enforcement and simulation madness

SimCity-5Hello guys,

I’m writing to you with a concern that has been on my mind for quite some time.
As the title says right away this post is going to be about the SimCity 5 madness that has been brought to us by EA and Maxis.

 

 

1. I am going to discuss the problems with the released game.
2. I will talk about the community requests.
3. And finally I will try my best to reason why Maxis is not listening to any of the complaints of their customers.

Lets start right away, I hope this will give you a little insight of what I think is going on, enjoy reading:

MINECRAFT UPDATE GOES LIVE!!

shuttle

HERE WE ARE!

WE ARE DONE!

The fragomat server runs on 1.7.10 and all mods are up and running.

I am done, I can’t think of working on more text, more pages, more posts.
I’d just say: See ya on the server! Big surprises are waiting for you. Have fun on the moon!

Alzurana signing out!

Minecraft update in progress…

It has been a long road of failed testing and bugs over bugs, but here we are, now!

The fragomat minecraft server will be updated from 1.4.7 to 1.7.10!
Some mods will disappear, others will be added. We tried our best to convert the map but unfortunately, almost all machines are lost. This is a fresh start! Of course, it’s sad that we obviously have to start from scratch. Metal blocks will stay in the world. This update is not final at all. All custom recipes are still missing, some nasty bugs exist within this setup but we decided to do this leap as fast as possible.

The servers are offline until 09_07_2014 1600 UTC.

More information below!

We’re up again!

Hey there, FELLAS!

 

Much time has passed since the last post and a lot of things have changed so far.
The whole server hardware has been swapped to a beasty piece of pure awesomeness.
Here is a little summary of the upgrade:
AMD Athlon II X4 -> Intel i7 2600k
4GB RAM -> 32GB RAM
100mBit -> 1000mBit full duplex connection
Also, the connection appears to be hooked onto a huge central data line which spreads all over Europe,
as well as the so called “GhostNet” which reduces ping times by 35%
2x500GB HDD space -> 2x2TB HDD space

This hardware change made us jizz our pants, really!

This beast serves a group of VM’s which isolate the services for more security, key lengths and passkeys have been increased.

And another big thing:
The official fragomat sites switched nginx as well, which provides better response times and stability on higher server loads.

 

All in all, it has been a hell of an update, and there are surprises ahead! Stay tuned and in the meantime, FLY SAFE! 😉

 

F*cking Right!

Minecraft finally updated to 1.2.5!

OK guys, here is the deal:

A few days ago, I finally managed to update the minecraft server and convert the map to be compatible with the new ID’s and the anvil file format. You might red about this on the MC forums, the map is now 256 blocks high. After that update we experienced some different bugs, which were basicly configuration issues. Mobs couldn’t spawn, no redPower/BuildCraft machine, which modifies blocks in the world worked properly.
After I did some plugin switches and alot of configuration additions these bugs are now solved. There might be another update within the next 1-2 weeks. It will add non pending future plans.

A little look through the eyes of your gods

To be a god is boring. So I created this Minecraftmap and the players to decorate it. But I forgot them, because I was occupied by a cute little … ahm… lets just say I forgot them. They begun to build. On a party with other drunken gods, I remembered them through the haze of alcohol. I see they build this:

I like it. Build more. Build better. I have to do very important things, and will soon have another look at you.
Your pity gods. AND NOW WORK!!!

About Page

This is pretty simple and short:
I felt to write an about page, since there weren’t enough information for stalkers available, here.
We’ve got one, now. Enjoy it. It’s finest brain juice! No it’s not. Or is it?

*EDIT: I believe Sora will add his stuff soon, too!
**EDIT: I just realized the pages on the top say “ABOUT MINECRAFT” O_O

Edit: Free Choice…

 

Just surfed around on 9gag, found this:

Don´t be a cow. You have the choice. Be against ACTA.

 

Awesome edit, Sora! ^^
