  • An old mob spawn limiter has been removed.
  • The spawn rate of animals has been increased.
  • We now again have the tool that we use to figure out whose bases cause the most lag.
EDIT: Salt factories are killing the server.

MORE EDIT: Apparently I have been told that Pam's recipes are really laggy.

EDIT by Tonius: Not just Pam's recipes are laggy. Binnie's Mods seems to be slowing down any crafting process significantly.

Unfortunately it seems as though Alice is down, There is no one currently online that is able to restart it. We just have to wait for sk or someone with access to restart it.

Edit: It's back up!
Edit 2: It's back down D:
Edit 3: It's back up :D

Edit 5: It's back up, hopefully for good now!

Because there is some confusion around the tweaked ore generation in Alice 1.7, I have made a cheat sheet that explains where you can find which ores.

It's a quick draft at the moment, but I'll see if I can make it prettier and easier to read soon.

A client update was pushed.
  • Added our hacked together support for Java 8 with FML so you can now use Java 8 with the modpack.
  • Disabled VSync by default (only affects new players).
  • Added stern warnings about installing JourneyMap and shaders.
A server update was also pushed.
  • Fixed the friends list.
  • Disabled achievements in chat.
  • Reduced slot limit so the player list is readable again.

Westrend, our Alice 1.7 world, has launched!

Since we didn't tell anyone for the past month that this was coming, be sure to tell all your friends!

To play on Alice 1.7, connect with the familiar addresses:
  • alice.sk89q.com
  • alice.skcraft.com
Use the "Alice 1.7" profile in the launcher. As this is a whitelisted server, be sure to first apply if you aren't yet a member: http://apply.skcraft.com/apply

Release notes:
  • If you are crashing on launch or join:
    • If the error log shows "ConcurrentModificationException" and you are using a recent version of Java 8, install an older version of Java 8 or a version of Java 7. In the launcher's options, set the Java path to this older version.
    • In the launcher's options, set PermGen to 256 from 128.
    • Increase max memory in launcher options if you have available RAM.
  • If you are having extremely low frame rate (FPS):
    • Make sure that you did NOT choose to install JourneyMap.
    • Disable VSync.
    • Disable the texture pack.
    • Lower "Render Distance" under Video settings.

Vincent has been moved to the new server.

Because the IP address has changed, the hostnames that you are using (vincent.sk89q.com, etc.) may point to the old address for up to 24 hours, depending on your internet provider's cache policies.

Both Alice and Vincent are currently down due to a server migration. They will be up shortly.

So as you may have heard, Bukkit, the server mod that we use on both Alice and Vincent, is in trouble.

You can find out more information here:

As we have a copy of Cauldron, we should be able to launch Alice 1.7.

However, Vincent 1.8 is in trouble... if we are not able to use Bukkit, then we may not be able to run several worlds (or do a lot of other things). We would have to run vanilla Minecraft and we could only have one overworld; plus, all the Minecart stuff would break.

We are planning to move the server again to an even faster server. The newer server, however, will be in Chicago.

I can't say when it happen, though maybe it will happen with Alice 1.7.
