New Patch, No worries :)

Update2: One plugin left that needs a bugfix, I've been dealing with one of the plugin devs and he's being very helpful but I have been having a bit of trouble getting a hold of him over the weekend. I'll be watching for him tomorrow. Unfortunately it's the permissions management plugin so it's not something we can do without.

Update: So there is finally a stable bukkit that supports multi-world, we've been waiting on some plugin's to be updated before we can. I'm currently running up a test server to see if everything is working now, so hopefully some time this weekend you'll see the server updated.

Hi guys, just a heads up that the new patch is out.
We won't be able to update until bukit and some mods do but that doesn't mean that we're not still working. Simply don't update your game until we update server.

If by any chance you did update, then don't worry, easy fixed.
In order to set your minecraft back to before patch, all you need is the "minecraft.jar" file from someone who hasn't patched. (you can get them to email it to you)
then simply replace it. Smile
Or want the best of both? just make a backup copy of minecraft.jar and replace it when you want to go on the server. :)

(minecraft.jar should be in your c:/users/(name)/appdata/roaming/.minecraft/bin)

We Have TeamSpeak!

This is something that we've been meaning to do for weeks but just hadn't gotten around to. But now, here it is. So throw on your headsets and get those vocal chords warmed up because it's time to start talking!

Server: ts.lewna.net
Port: 9987
no password needed

Donate Button

So, we've done it. We've finally gotten that donations button up. I know what you're thinking "Do they really need MORE beer?!?!" but seriously, you're probably wondering where the money goes. Unfortunatly good servers aren't cheap to host. Ram and beer bandwith really add up, twice now we have grown out of the server we were using and had to find something bigger. We want to find some new hosting that's got a better ping but they won't take Minecraft diamonds no matter how much we beg (our current host isn't cheap either). So if you can spare a few dollars we would appreciate it.

Oh and just to make a couple of things clear from the outset donations are not in any way a requirement for membership or promotion and donating will not increase your chance of being made a member or getting promoted.

Daily Reboot

UPDATE: Server restart went off without a hitch. I also updated some plugin's whilst I was at it. Remember if you come across any issues, put it in the bug reports forum.

We've had some reports that the amount of lag being experienced by users dropped significantly after a server restart. As a result of this news we are going to trial a daily reboot. Unfortunately we don't have a monkey to do this for us any more (long story involving a VAX and a Digital service engineer) so it will have to be automated and as with all automated processes you can expect that one day it will go wrong, become self aware and kill us all. In the event that the server does kill us all, please post in the bug report forum and one of the admins will sort it out ASAP (if we aren't already on it).

The restarts will happen at 04:45AM AEST
