Concerning latest minecraft update on survival (1.7.9)

In minecraft’s latest update, they have decided to change the way player data is stored (most likely in preparation for their new naming system). Unfortunately, with this cool update comes things that are unavoidable, and that aren’t so great. If you log on after the date that this post was created, there might be a few things that are different with your player. The server thinks you are a new player(because it has to generate a new player file) so you will have no/few items in your inventory, but you will not be starting at the premember quiz because it is currently disabled for this reason. Again, this is unavoidable and bothersome, but we can get through it. Thank you for your understanding.

Updates 4/9/14

  • Created WorldMessages plugin (/wm). This plugin has a custom message for everytime you switch into other worlds and when you log into a specific world. Very useful replacement for motd/greeting messages.
  • Edited donate page in preparation for the new/edited packages.
  • Finally configured the forums to require email authentication for new users (will reduce spam)
  • Swapped to business class internet.

Website/Forum/Server back up!

After transferring from Proxmox to VMware ESXi we are finally done. A much more difficult process than originally planned. Problem after problem came up that needed to be solved, which is why this took so many days. Thank you for your patience and keep an eye out for when bukkit develops their 1.7 build!

Frontier ISP Outage

You are probably aware of some McTopia services are currently down (e.g. the server), this is due to a confirmed frontier issue with their dns lines. The support agent I talked with said it was due to harsh weather. Again, its a dns outage, so you will still probably be able to check the site (hosted on frontier) for updates. Please be patient as there is nothing I can currently do to resolve this issue.

EDIT: Most of their issues have been resolved as of now, there are still some sites that are not available with people using Frontier.

Feed The Beast

Just in case you haven’t seen the newly added page to the site. We have a FTB server currently running the unleashed variant of it. I realize that not many people on McTopia play FTB so there probably won’t be many people on it. However for the few that do feel free to check it out.
