1.6.2 now on webserver, 1.5_02 remains on normal server.

Submitted By BRooNiE in Annoucement
The server will remain on 1.5_02 until bukkit have successfully released an updated version and I've successfully tested it offline.

In the meantime, those who have updated to 1.6.2 can now access a vanilla server at


EDIT: The awkward moment when a user logs onto 1.6.2 and crashes it, nice bug Notch!

Server Move Tomorrow (Webserver) + Updates on Game server.

Submitted By BRooNiE in Annoucement
As per announced earlier, the webserver will be moved to the UK tomorrow.

This will cause a short moment of downtime whilst your DNS updates, during this time, teamspeak and the webserver may be unavailable.

The Minecraft server will also receive a general update too.

Server Move Later in the Week

Submitted By BRooNiE in Annoucement
Update! This web server will be moved later on the week, so it may appear offline for up to a few hours on the day.

Closer to the time, a news post will be given so that you can have advanced notice.

The total downtime will be 1-2 hours, however, DNS can take up to 48 hours to update depending on your ISP.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank the following members:


Your donations help keep the server alive! Thank you!

Bukkit Stable-ish, Server Stable-ish, Successful-ish!

Submitted By BRooNiE in Annoucement
Rather ish day, from what started out as an attempted upgrade from a Android Mobile Phone has turned into a working, stable, release of 1.5 [yay!]

There is still a few bugs here and there to squash out, one of the major ones today you may of noticed was the on-quit lag, horrible stuff.

How did this happen? When a player left the game in other means than clicking 'Disconnect' - such as closing the window, or force closing Minecraft - the server [This part by Notch!] would throw an error, saying the player didn't exist where it thought he/she was, heres how it worked:

Player doesn't exist here, I'll check a neighbouring chunk.
Player doesn't exist here, I'll check a neighbouring chunk.
Player doesn't exist here, I'll check a neighbouring chunk.
Player doesn't exist here, I'll check a neighbouring chunk.

And so on, now when the server gets into a state like that, it dedicates the majority of resources to finding this missing player, who doesn't exist! Until eventually, all loaded chunks are checked, and it will resume as normal.

This is bad, and is the reason why some people were experiencing timeouts or had thought the server had crashed due to so many chunks needing checked. Hopefully though, this should be fixed now!

I haven't actually had a moment to fully try out 1.5, however the weather is highly amusing, how long will it be until the old spawn [accessed using /oldspawn] is covered in snow once more? (Apparently, its built on a snow biome.)

You may of also noticed we have extended our player limit to 50, why you must ask, I seen a rare error, and just had to up the limit. That error you ask? Disconnecting Player - Server is Full!

Thats right, we hit our max! So I have extended the player limit to 50, if we hit that, perhaps their might be a surprise in store...

Speaking of surprises, development on the CFUK plugin has sorta halted, I've had alot of coursework materials to focus on lately, when I have them freed up I should be able to focus on the plugin, and get this eco system done!

Also, I don't think I've posted this on the news before, but it was my birthday last month, I'd like to give a thank-you to all the members who gave their birthday wishes, thank you! I'd like to give a special mention to Diablothe2nd too, just yesterday, a late birthday present was given to me, thank you D2!

Ending on a thankful note, I'd like to give my thanks to the following players for their donations to the server - remember, donations support the server hosting! So not matter how big or little it is, your still helping continue to be the community it is:

Thank You!

Also, altgamer was wondering the next time he'd be featured in a news post, here is your moment.
