We're working towards updating the server to the next Minecraft version (1.6), as it happens that there is almost no mod/etc. support for Minecraft 1.7 at the moment (and there may not be for a while). The world on Alice will be definitely reset once we can update.
Before we can do that though, we need to build a new spawn. Normally I help manage that, but since I will probably be somewhat unavailable for the coming weeks, the modpack team will be handling affairs with that. If you wish to help, check out the TeamSpeak server whenever people are on building in the spawn build channel.
If you're new to the server, then you can check out the server for now but note that I would personally refrain from building anything substantial.
We'll keep everyone updated as things move along. Remember to check out the TeamSpeak server once in a while!
For those who are not aware, on SKCraft to reduce server load we have reduced all fusion reactor processing time by 4. This means that you do not need as many machines as there was intended. The required amount of machines is devised by 4.
This means that it requires
- 36 Industrial Centrifuges
- 6 Industrial Electrolyzers
We've been playing Left 4 Dead 2 (all gamemodes) together, along with a few others, for the past few months. You do NOT have to be good at the game; just be fun to play with! If you're interested in playing with us, post your Steam name in the comments.
As you know, we have had a fair number of network issues over the past month, and it is entirely due to blame on our data center. The only fix is to move out of the data center, but of course, powerful servers capable of running Alice do not come cheap. Ironically, moving outside the data center means a larger number of concurrent players (as a result of better network connectivity), meaning we have to deal with even more people, therefore requiring even more resources. We're ready to hop out to another server when opportunity arises (the last server move had less than a minute of downtime), and so if you've been unable to get on, or have not had great connectivity, be aware that it's still on our mind.
We had some plans from a month ago towards acquiring a new system with a better processor, but as the relevant parties have become a little busy, things have been severely pushed back. In the best case scenario, we might be able to move over in a few weeks, so hold tight.
