    Any word on getting my storage room fixed? I made a schematic file...

    Evidently, I was just talking to myself earlier. -_-

    Here, let me be clearer:

    1) New map for beta 1.8 update = Not. Going. To. Happen.
    2) New map for full retail = Not concrete that it is going to happen nor even planned really, just the earliest we would do one if ever. Still 2 months away anyhow.
    3) Porting buildings/chunks from this map onto a new one or visa versa = Not. Going. To. Happen. (TOO much work involved, potentially everyone wanting their stuff moved, and no way in Hell we're going to play a game of Hot Potato with the map waiting on one person at a time porting their stuff individually. Again it's why only the Clocktower was ported from the old map)
    4) Nerfing chunks from this map and regening with beta 1.8 code = Highly unlikely, probably labor-intensive. See: Porting buildings
    5) Concurrent 2nd uRPS server = Money? Staffing? Time? Foot traffic justifying the bother? Even worth doing before full retail?
    6) Leaving the map as-is through full retail release = Easiest option, but I don't think anyone really wants to miss out on any of the new stuff.
    7) Expanding current map = Only real option that changes the map in any way while leaving everyone's stuff alone.



    Guys, don't get your knickers in a bunch over any of this. Our primary mission is and always has been to provide as stable a server as we can (this current display of defiance the server is giving me notwithstanding... -_- ). It doesn't get more disruptive than a full map reset. Besides, we still don't know exactly what beta 1.8 will do to existing maps. This is all moot until we do. Ugh, this feels like the build-up to the Halloween Update all over again. This time, however, can we do it without the server going down for the count and the admin(s) disappearing forever? XD

    Ah, I figured it must have been something like that on HGS' end. Directly contacting you was going to be my next step after posting above and checking server again. Thank you again. :)

    Edit: lol And now I can't get onto the server.

    That has the same problem with just expanding the existing map: How much space will our stuff fill on the host server? Will HGS have a problem handling that or worse, a problem with us even doing that? Would just having a separate server be a more viable option (again, I don't think a 2nd uRPS is really a good option)?

    I can't connect to the host machine. Nothing I can do about it. Going to bed.

    Seems the server might be having problems starting up again after automated restarts. It started one about 40 minutes ago and has still not come back online ("End of stream" error).



    As for the 1.8 situation, I doubt we are the only server with this dilemma (a dilemma which will return every time there's a major terrain update) so there's always the possibility that the Minecraft community comes up with a tool specific for this situation (perhaps a process which automagically compares the current world to its original state [based on the world seed value] and regenerates all the chunks where altered blocks are below a certain treshold. There might be other tools and possibilities available as well, when the time comes, so I think this is a bit too soon for voting and debating.

    Such a tease. I managed to log on for about 2 minutes moments ago, but was then kicked right as my hopes rose from the ashes. Bummer.

    My two penneth - not interested in a new map - put a lot of time and effort into what I've built. So DroseDARs, I second everything you said.

    wow, had to re-register thats how long its been :) Anyway I used to build on the first ever unofficial server in those heady days of fun and was wondering if a man could do the same on the big beast that now exists?

    Cheers!

    People need to take the aggro down a notch. More civil discussion and less internet drama, please.

    Be assured that no big decisions will ever be taken without careful consideration and listening to everyone's input.

    I think the server has gone broked again.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    Rusty, your store room has been restored. Care to make an inspection? I used the 2011-08-06 backup.

    Sorry about the delay. I wrote a little tool that allows you to restore specific chunks from a backup, so the next time this happens to somebody I'll be able to fix it much more quickly and easily.
