@  beanboy10 : (31 July 2014 - 03:46 AM) Until the reset, i've decided to build a nuclear reactor and test the setup I made for it. According to the planner, no components should melt and all heat generated per tick is removed. In the process of getting fuel rods
@  LadySammy : (31 July 2014 - 03:43 AM) *waits patiently* D:
@  mouthymotor : (30 July 2014 - 03:28 AM) I have an underwater base now. It's pretty neat. But the next one, I am also thinking about a sky base. (Gonna use inverted sky stone for the floor :P)
@  tm1618 : (30 July 2014 - 03:26 AM) The det-cord was for later lol oh well it still made a nicely sized hole
@  beanboy10 : (30 July 2014 - 01:31 AM) My the word "Prematurely", i'm guessing the user intended to blow it up, just later.
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 01:28 AM) your reactor just 'went off in your base' what was that det-cord for then?
@  beanboy10 : (30 July 2014 - 01:00 AM) Im going to build an airship for my base. An underwater base was awful for expanding and I wouldn't want a bad reactor to destroy the landscape.
@  tm1618 : (30 July 2014 - 12:37 AM) I was planning on playing til the 8th until my reactor went off prematurely in my base LOL...don't ask haha
@  jakerman999 : (30 July 2014 - 12:24 AM) have fun
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 12:23 AM) well, im off to take pictures of all the things I made, yeah.
@  jakerman999 : (30 July 2014 - 12:23 AM) There are no fields out there, these are castles in the air
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 12:21 AM) maybe one floating castle though...
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 12:21 AM) nope, im going to build a Mad-science lab!
@  jakerman999 : (30 July 2014 - 12:19 AM) Going to build a castle, eh?
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 12:17 AM) erm, of a nice island.
@  MatthewSaotome : (30 July 2014 - 12:17 AM) I just can't wait to be King!
@  jakerman999 : (30 July 2014 - 12:13 AM) (to a lion king tune)Oh, I juuust can't waaiiiiiit; 'til thee eeeeeiiiiiiiiigthhh.
@  LadySammy : (30 July 2014 - 12:05 AM) #.# I can't wait till the 8th
@  Discipulus199 : (29 July 2014 - 10:14 PM) Yeah there was a mass amount of people who left around the same time as me. I will e honest I have been member of this server quite a while, and theres not a lot of constants
@  XxShadow_sis... : (29 July 2014 - 10:05 PM) That's true, but most people come on for the sake of building projects and working together, and if they've finished/lost interested in everything they've done and there's not enough time to start anything else then no one is really gonna come on

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.
