@  beanboy10 : (03 March 2015 - 11:14 PM) For spawn, we could have community members design a new one, or gather screenshots of it and build off of that.
@  XxShadow_sis... : (03 March 2015 - 07:16 PM) Art, I'm sure you'll be happy to know that we do have backups of the spawn where the mall was :P
@  Art_Pavonis : (03 March 2015 - 01:57 PM) All that work for nifty looking mall.... brings tears to my eyes.
@  Executer : (02 March 2015 - 11:34 PM) I look forward to whatever you guys come up with!
@  Executer : (02 March 2015 - 11:34 PM) Aww yiss~
@  latios2468 : (02 March 2015 - 06:49 PM) Thanks Shadow, and LONG LIVE TECHWORLD!
@  Dehietyi : (02 March 2015 - 06:08 PM) Shadow thanks for the update. I feel much better about this situation. Good luck.
@  XxShadow_sis... : (02 March 2015 - 05:22 PM) So you don't all feel left in the dark, we do have a plan, and if it works it'll be epic! No we don't have a backup of the world etc... You'll be updated when more is confirmed. (Sorry, no reimbursements ;) )
@  Art_Pavonis : (02 March 2015 - 03:28 PM) The thing with the temp TS emma, is that hardly anyone got on the Techworld TS as it was...

@  n8crafter : (02 March 2015 - 03:52 AM) do the backups save to the server computer or to a separate hard drive?
@  n8crafter : (02 March 2015 - 03:52 AM) dang. heres to hoping theres a backup somewhere
@  latios2468 : (02 March 2015 - 02:53 AM) N8, no they don't :P
@  n8crafter : (02 March 2015 - 01:43 AM) small, impossible bit of hope, do our computers save the MC world from our last server connection?
@  n8crafter : (02 March 2015 - 01:38 AM) well. that kinda sucks... will there be any sort of server wide reimbursement or something though? ;)
@  Art_Pavonis : (02 March 2015 - 01:21 AM) Wait...
@  Executer : (01 March 2015 - 08:31 PM) *starts singing a Whole New World*
@  KookieNCoffee1 : (01 March 2015 - 06:32 PM) It may be a whole new Techworld...
@  beanboy10 : (01 March 2015 - 06:31 PM) Same here. this is major.
@  seanos1998 : (01 March 2015 - 06:30 PM) In all the years i've been here, nothing like it has hapenned before

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.
