Some of you may have noticed the server is down right now. This is temporary while we wait for an issue with the database to be fixed. The moment it is we will be back online. Sorry for the downtime!

We are back online and updated!

The database is back and everything is working fine. Sorry for the downtime, but we are back. And we are back on CraftBukkit 1.7!! The vanilla chests will be here soon

Server Update...Why we have been offline.

Hello all, first i would like to appologize for the downtime on the server the past couple days. Currently there is an issue with the database and that is a must for the server to run. Without it, there is no stats logging, locked chests, and more importantly, block logs. This opens the server up for grief and raid that we can't do anything about. Until the databse is up and running functional again, it seems as though we will be offline. 

On a good note...I have run tests with the new CraftBukkit release and when we come back (hopefully within the next few days), we will most likely be running CraftBukkit 1.7. This means we will have the new biomes and items as well with the chests from the vanilla map! 

Again, so sorry about this happening. It was nothing in my control. See you all soon!

Now running Spigot 1.7!!

The server is now running Spigot 1.7 which is very similar to CraftBukkit 1.6.4. Bukkit is finally putting out osme releases soon but may be pretty unstable. We will update ASAP and the vanilla chests will be available at that time. 1.6.4 chests are currently available for grabs

We need your help making a decision!

If you've been on the server...you know we are currently Vanilla running a temporary map. When we switch maps we were allowing 1 large chest of items for each person to be brought over. This is only while we wait for CraftBukkit to update to 1.7.2. Unfortunetly, it has been taking much longer than expected due to the fact the 1.7.2 Minecraft update was enormous. Bukkit has to write and fix around 220K lines of code then make sure it all fixes properly with some bugs Minecraft has itself. Now it has come to the point where, well, vanilla needs to go. There are a few options available for us...


1) The server could stay vanilla and wait until CraftBukkit updates to 1.7.2. This could take another month for all we know. They don't give updates s to how far along they are. One large chest of items will still be brought to the new map.


2) Each player could store their items in one large chest like the original plan, switch over to a permanent map running Spigot. This way we can have plugins and such. With Spigot, items from 1.7 such as Red Sand, Stained Glass, etc. will not be available. Neither will the generated biomes. Your chests from the vanilla map will be brought to the permanent map when Bukkit updates, this way it prevents you from losing any items that are 1.7 only. If we were to do this option, to find 1.7 biomes when CraftBukkit updates, you would have to find them in newly generated chunks. A decent, very helpful started kit will be available.


3) We could store 1 large chest of each players items like mentioned before and go back to our original 1.6.4 map with CraftBukkit. This would only be temporary. When CraftBukkit was to update, we would switch over to a permanent map. On the 1.6.4 map, we have a section for players to store 2 large locked chests of items. If you do not have chests there, you are allowed to get your own chests. When we update to the permanent map, the 1.6.4 chests and 1.7 chests will all be available for you. The 1.7 chests will not be available on the 1.6.4 chests. A decent, very helpful starter kit will be available.


Options 2 and 3 result in the server having no PvP, no griefing, no raiding. Chests will be locked and blocks will be logged. You will have your ranks back and players can start having their stats logged to be ranked up. There will be an economy system once again with warps, homes, chest shops, etc.

Or, comment on your thoughts. Thank you for the help!

Server down for Maintenance.

We are going back to 1.6.4 since CraftBukkit is taking longer than expected to update to 1.7.  We will run our original maps along side of the 1.7 Vanilla map we were using. The vanilla map will still have pvp, grief, and raiding.
