@  hm4n : (01 September 2014 - 03:43 AM) I don't honestly understand why people complain about servers crashing. If you don't realise that servers will crash. -.- Play single player. lol
@  Liamcal : (01 September 2014 - 03:39 AM) This server today xD
@  BlackFenix2 : (01 September 2014 - 03:39 AM) boy...
@  hm4n : (01 September 2014 - 03:30 AM) no chunk resets needed ignore ninja
@  hiroscho : (01 September 2014 - 03:08 AM) hi - server down - this shutbox has a nice style - ilove justin bieber! :D
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (01 September 2014 - 03:07 AM) i do believe a chunk reset is in order
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (01 September 2014 - 03:07 AM) it appears a chunk in the town of mekatech i believe is the name, is crashing the server on unloading and people insist on still going there when the problem is evident -.-
@  Liamcal : (31 August 2014 - 05:52 PM) Anyone else experiencing block lag as of late?
@  N1NJAxA55A1N : (31 August 2014 - 02:48 PM) The problem seems inconsistent. Many people use mekanism including myself and fenix but when we leave it doesnt crash

@  XxShadow_sis... : (31 August 2014 - 01:18 PM) Bit of an issue, as I'm sure you can see
@  hiroscho : (31 August 2014 - 01:18 PM) Hmm, okay, thanks for the information
@  XxShadow_sis... : (31 August 2014 - 01:17 PM) Oh, wait, it's all of mekanism basically... conflicting with other mods...
@  hiroscho : (31 August 2014 - 01:14 PM) Do you know what kind of pipes those are and could you tell us?
@  XxShadow_sis... : (31 August 2014 - 12:57 PM) The issues is that when certain pipes are unloaded the entire server crashes! So if people have these in their home and log out... poof.
@  BlackFenix2 : (31 August 2014 - 05:15 AM) and he did it again... to the player reports
@  BlackFenix2 : (31 August 2014 - 03:11 AM) it was dragoon, second he leaves the server, the serves leaves with him

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.
