@  MatthewSaotome : (16 September 2014 - 08:52 PM) thats why notch programmed minecraft in java.
@  MatthewSaotome : (16 September 2014 - 08:52 PM) java actually has several advantages over c++
@  BlackFenix2 : (16 September 2014 - 02:30 AM) i was just going to mention that, i did make comments that minecraft should be in c++
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (16 September 2014 - 02:24 AM) but if they change it to one of those languages, then the development of pc and console versions will be a lot more of the same game. Which for the console community(which i could care less about) would mean faster development
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (16 September 2014 - 02:23 AM) the biggest problem i forsee is Microsoft might change the game to C# or C++ Although they are faster languages, I do not know how willing the modding community will be to learn another language if they do not already
@  pianist1119 : (16 September 2014 - 02:07 AM) cause thats gonna probably be the end of mods :(
@  pianist1119 : (16 September 2014 - 02:07 AM) Well personally im just gonna stay in 1.6.4 with mods
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (16 September 2014 - 01:13 AM) Well i believe it is the beginning of the end - I have heard cpw amd mdiyo have quit due to MS buying Mojang. im sure more will follow

@  hiroscho : (15 September 2014 - 05:08 PM) At least its not EA or we would have: http://i.imgur.com/iPQbKTq.jpg
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (15 September 2014 - 03:23 PM) Well its official. Mojang sold out to Microsoft for 2.5 Billion. Notch and several other of the original creators have left as well. said they couldnt handle running a global brand that minecraft has become

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.
