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!
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.

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.

After a bit of pain and suffering from my oral surgery that I had to go through last week, we are back on track! I have been at work on a new plugin for the server that is very useful to me and I hope it will be for you. You can type /whoishere or /wih and it displays on your screen exactly what you would think. It takes the world you are in, and displays a whole playerlist of players that are in that specific world you are in. For example, if I wanted to know if there was anyone in the flat world, I would teleport to the flat world and type /wih. It also tells you the world and worldtype you are in. Below is a screenshot of the whole commandExecutor class for the plugin. Enjoy and feel free to copy.
Edit: Also some new commands have been added to the VIP and Mod Rank.
I have been hard at work modulating (future proofing) and perfecting the /commands plugin. I have made minor changes to the /pet plugin also. To keep you guys up on the action I have included a screenshot to share a portion of my work.
EDIT: Also, the rank mod has been overhauled with new commands.
The new player spawn question area has been completed. This will help the server be immune to grief, spam attacks. Players need to answer all the correct answers before they can speak in chat or become a member. I have also created a plugin called “pet”. Everyone VIP-Diamond and up have the command. You type /pet and it spawns you 2 bones and a wolf for you to tame. Very simple yet fun. Thank you to the person that suggested it on the server.
