Minecraft Roadmap: Future Updates

Hey guys, I wanna tell you how the future of our minecraft server will look like:

Today Industrial Craft 2 (IC²) got released. I’m sad, it’s just the singleplayer version and multiplayer will take some more time and workaround of the industrial craft team. You can read more on their page. Also minecraft 1.8, the adventure update will come within the next week(s). So what does that mean to our server.

I belive that IC² multiplayer will be released before all mods are 1.8 ready. In that case I will do a “small” update for IC² and we will stay on 1.7 for a while. As soon as the modloader and bukkit is 1.8 ready I will do a second HUGE update to 1.8.

REALLY IMPORTANT STUFF ABOUT OUR PLANS FOR 1.8. READ!

1.8 will expand the maps highest point from 128 blocks height to 512 blocks height which means, that our old map will be “corrupted” or better it will be below sea level. We will flood the whole old map to make shure it fits into the appearance of the new one. If you want to protect your buildings you should start building huge glass domes above your cities. This is important! If you don’t do this your area will be completely underwater! Heet this lecture, you cannot say I didn’t warned you! We always tell you guys to read the news on here, so if your stuff gets underwater it’s not our fault. Since we’re back on bukkit we can help you building domes with only a few commands so tell us if you want so set up a larger dome.

 

That’s all for now. Alzurana out!

Minecraft Update done

Hey guys, the MC update is done. You’re going to need a new client and you will find it on our minecraft page.

We’re now running all the cool new mods, also we returned to the bukkit API. You may need to register with the server on first login. Just type “/register <the password you desire>”. I wish you a lot of fun with the new IMPROOVED minecraft.
One last note:
I had to delete all player files. A bug forced me to, I’m sorry. 🙁

 

KNOWN BUGS:

  • Some items won’t appear in your inventory if you “give” them with to many items. You can fix that by looking into a chest while using TMI or through a relog, but a relog would be the last choice.
  • I don’t know if I could delete all corrupted areas on the map. If your client crashes and keeps crashing on login, please note me. I have to do some map patchwork, then.
  • Sometimes the client keeps freezing. This seems to be a bug, caused by the bukkit build of buildcraft. Should be fixed within the next few days, I don’t know but the ModloaderMP team is on it.
  • Buildcrafts oil within a pipe seems to cause heavy.. HEAVY traffic between server and client. Don’t transport to much oil or please use buckets. This is either a modloader<->bukkit “bug” or it is buildcraft itself that loves traffic. Will be fixed soon. (hope so)
  • Never forget, minecraft and especially our mods are all more or less beta, therefor bugs are normal. Still it’s a good idea to report them. If you have a bug to report please mail it to minecraft@fragomat.net. It would be AWESOME if you could mail instructions of how to reproduce the bug, too.

 

Industrial Craft 2 will be out, soon. Be prepared for another update within the next 1-3 weeks.
Also minecraft 1.8 will be released, soon. I hope the mods will follow ASAP.

Uh, before I forget have a look at my “awesome fixed mainboard”!

 

Alzurana Out!

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!

Brainfuck madness…

Sometimes it’s just hard to sort your thoughts, especially if you’re working on such huge projects like Project Triniton. Yes, this is the first PJ_T post on this blog, and alot more will follow. Also there will be more posts about other game development ideas I’m currently working on. Read more, it’s worth it!

Quick MC hotfix

Hey guys,

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!
