  New Server Box
Posted by: ataranlen - 02-23-2015, 01:39 PM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (11)

As some of you may already know, we're running on some pretty outdated hardware. I've placed an order that should help replace most of his hardware. I will be assembling a new server box later this week.

I'll be switching in some hardware from the old systems (such as the SSD's) to use as backup devices, but this system is intended to replace both of our current boxes.

For the Stats junkies, here's the full spec sheet:

  • 2 x Intel Xeon E5-2620 v3 Haswell 2.4GHz 6 x 256KB L2
  • 1 x ASUS Z10PE-D16/4L SSI EEB Server Motherboard Dual
  • 1 x NORCO RPC-470 Black 4U Rackmount Server Case 3 Ext - OEM
  • 1 x Crucial 64GB (4 x 16GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM ECC DDR
  • 1 x Antec 80Plus Platinum PSU ATX 1000 Power Supply HCP-1000 PLATINUM
  • 2 x ADATA USA Premier Pro SP600 2.5-Inch 256 GB SATA III Synchronous NAND SSD ASP600S3-256GM-C
  • 2 x Noctua i4 CPU Cooler for Intel Xeon CPU_ LGA2011, 1356 and 1366 Platforms NH-U9DXi4

  Civcraft for Minecraft 1.8
Posted by: ataranlen - 02-10-2015, 12:12 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (13)

So I took a good chunk of time today to get Civcraft compiled for Minecraft 1.8.1

Things are looking pretty good thus far (five minutes of testing).
Seems like TagAPI is going to be giving me some trouble and it will not be updated for Spigot 1.8 and will need to be replaced.
I know we'll need to disable some of the new blocks/entities.

So here's what still needs to be tested:

  • Trade goodie generation
  • Trade goodie buffs
  • All mobs and mob abilities
  • Armor damage reduction
  • All structures
  • All wonders
  • Camp > Civ > Victory progression
  • All custom Civcraft recipes
  • Plugin compatibility
  • Anticheat
If you guys want to help test, I'll probably be running a test server a couple of days a week.

  New Civcraft Wonder: Colosseum
Posted by: ataranlen - 01-17-2015, 02:14 AM - Forum: News and Announcements - Replies (4)

As part of our update to Civcraft 1.4, We're adding a Colosseum Wonder.

This is a template from the Civcraft Build server that did not make it into Civcraft yet. I personally took the time to export it and modify the Civcraft plugin to enable it.
