Java 8 Available

A new major version of Java -- Java 8 -- recently came out in the last week. Some people have reported that the game runs better in it. You can download Java 8 now from Oracle's site.

After you install Java 8, you may want to force the launcher to use it. The launcher tries to detect the latest version of Java, but you can manually set the version of Java in the options.

Mac OS X users can set Java priority in Java Preferences.

It's up.

The server suffered a crash at 9:45AM CST and will likely be down until SK is available to address the issue.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Regarding build moves:

We've been slowly working through our way with the build moves from the old world to the new world. It's been taking a lot longer than expected, but we're a bit busy and short on staff at the moment.

In order to have your build moved, remember that you need to make a post in the Ask a Moderator forum, providing these details:
  1. The coordinates on the current Alice 1.6 as to where you want to place your build
  2. A screenshot of the destination area
  3. A link to your transfer request on the transfer request topic
  4. Some wishes as to how you may want your build to be placed that we will try our best to adhere too, but we can't make guarantees
As a reminder, the purpose of this move is to not move valuables.

To get the server back up ASAP, we've changed a setting on the server that may have some unintended (but not lasting) consequences. This is to fix an issue involving RotaryCraft crashing the server.

If something appears to be working incorrectly now, please say so.

Update: Enhanced Portals is currently broken because of this change.

It appears that Rotary Craft is causing a significant crash issue with the server. The server will be down while we work to resolve this issue. We are working to resolve the issue, but we do not have an ETA at this time. We will keep you updated as we move forward.

SKCraft Mobile 2.1 is here! The update brings the following:
  • Push notifications when a server goes online or offline (Alice support coming soon)
  • Ability to check server status from within the app
Future updates will bring more control over notifications, Alice support, and much more. The possibility of an iOS and web app version are currently being investigated. A dedicated status web page is also coming soon!

YAY! SK FIXED IT!

Well folks, it appears the server has suffered a significant crash. As of right now, nobody with console access is online to restart the server, so unfortunately we're going to be down until that changes. Hopefully it won't be too long!

An update has been pushed to the launcher. You will be prompted to update upon launching the game.
  • Updated RotaryCraft to v18d. If you still haven't removed your shafts, engines and gearboxes, they will be reset now. No refunds, you have been warned multiple times.
  • Updated Thaumcraft to 4.1.0g
  • Updated Thaumic Tinkerer to 2.3-130
  • Updated Mekanism to 6.0.4.31
  • Removed ProjectRed's Compat module again as it was probably causing the issues with Java 6.
  • Reduced the amount of levels needed for Natural Absorption from 60 to 40
  • Enabled Bins and Cardboard Boxes, which are pretty much barrels and dollies respectively. See here for more information
  • Fixed a crash when attempting to craft Pressers from HarvestCraft
  • Fixed a server crash when an Ender Translocator is used
  • Fixed a bug involving Awakened Ichorium Pickaxes and bedrock

The MapPad is now fixed!

If yours does not work, hover over the item and check to make sure that it reads :20 at the end (and not some other number). If it does not, you can buy a new one at spawn for regular Minecraft bread.

There is also a new record/radio shop at spawn on the edge of the market (farthest away from the farms) that sells various tuned crystals for various radio stations (Rock, Jazz, Classical, Ska, Punk, DnB, etc.).

The sold crystals can be inserted into the radios from OpenBlocks. In the future, you will be able to encode your own radio stations.

We wish to update RotaryCraft soon to fix some quite annoying bugs. However, there comes an issue with doing this.

Due to some necessary changes in the code, the way engines, shafts and gearboxes are stored in the world files has changed a bit in the new RotaryCraft update. Unfortunately, this will break any currently placed engines, shafts and gearboxes. It is advised to remove these and keep them as items until the update is out.
To clarify, here's what will happen if you don't: before and after.

We understand that this could potentially be quite an annoyance to you, but we cannot avoid changes like this, and we don't want to miss out on important bug fixes either.

The update is currently scheduled to happen sometime on Wednesday, March 12th, 2014. Please take care of your machines before this date. As we have no way of knowing who is lying afterwards, there will be no refunds if any of your machines were still placed.

EDIT: It's back up.

The server is currently down. There is a specific block in the world that is freezing up the server whenever it is loaded. We are currently looking into ways to remove this block from the world.

Changing the block ID won't be good, because the block shares its ID with all other machines from RotaryCraft. This is why this particular issue is more complicated for us.

Sorry for the inconvenience. Please check back later.
