@  KookieNCoffee1 : (22 September 2016 - 03:13 AM) Woot!
@  Lumandrill : (20 September 2016 - 06:33 PM) xD
@  Lumandrill : (20 September 2016 - 06:33 PM) Revive The techworld!
@  Brisingr17 : (28 August 2016 - 10:10 AM) Glad the old site is back, lots of memories
@  Lumandrill : (23 August 2016 - 05:07 PM) Wuhuuu First Visitor in a year :D
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:44 PM) haha, let's not hope, but know that it will be a good next three years!
@  Aaria : (10 April 2015 - 08:43 PM) Yep, and hopefully a good almost-three years on the next server!
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:43 PM) say, will people who have been a part of the server since techworld get a special title perhaps? would be nice :P
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:41 PM) ... *Sigh* it's been a good almost-three years here...
@  Aaria : (10 April 2015 - 08:40 PM) Yes, very sadly this website and forums will be no longer in use by the end of today if Galen gets it done tonight
@  seanos1998 : (10 April 2015 - 08:37 PM) I guess we're leaving this forum then?

@  Darkflames : (09 April 2015 - 10:25 PM) (to all the awaiting fans that is.)
@  Darkflames : (09 April 2015 - 10:24 PM) While we wait, our communities from the last server can reorganize. Like Colonia. Open a thread, plan something. Just because the server isn't ready doesn't mean we can't socialize ;;)
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 05:00 PM) In the next few days or next week it's likely we'll be doing a public beta for people who check the forums, but even that won't be released until we have everything we need up, working and as stable as possible
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 04:59 PM) Unlike with the last map we are leaving a proper launch until we are sure that we've covered everything and that all major issues have already been fixed before a playerbase is established
@  Aaria : (09 April 2015 - 04:57 PM) No the reason isn't permissions
@  Dehietyi : (09 April 2015 - 07:09 AM) If it was in 1.7.10 It would have been installed.
@  Dehietyi : (09 April 2015 - 07:09 AM) Dartcraft is still only in 1.6.4 Bluedart hasn't even been on the Minecraft Forums since october 2014.
@  Executer : (09 April 2015 - 06:25 AM) Why don't we just leave the pack as "private" for now, and let everyone play, seeing as you need to apply to get whitelisted anyway.

Edit: We have reached the goal and are upgrading! Thanks to everyone who donated!

Current funding status can be found by scrolling up.

In light of the continued growth of the server, it's once again time to upgrade the server hardware. As you know, shit doesn't come cheap (nothing does :S). Our current server contract expires on the 24th May 2012. If we receive our target amount by that, we'll be upgrading, thus returning back to the days of 20 TPS (yay :D).

It will basically just be a CPU upgrade, as that is our main bottleneck at the moment which is holding back the TPS. The new CPU is top of the line and would be 3 times faster (we expect).

We would also be moving server locations to Phoenix, AZ, USA. This is where the majority of our players are located.
Europeans players should only see there ping increase to 100-300ms, which wouldn't be noticeable after all.

Here are the specs we would have:
  • 16GB DDR3 RAM
  • Intel Xeon Quad Core E3-1270 @3.80 GHz
  • 100 Mbit Uplink
If we reach the goal, the server would be upgrading on the 26th May 2012.

Donate now
Donating will give you tonnes of benefits as a thank you for keeping the server alive and allowing us to upgrade the server.

Wow, this is great, I hope you reach the goal of $500 for an upgrade. My birthday's coming up so I will try and donate for a VIP or VIP+, however I don't like the idea of it only being for a month, I think VIP+ should at least be for a year!

I disagree Joey. These seem fair. The idea is to get people to give as much as possible beore they get burnt and quit.
