Hi everyone who is interested in a small story....

You can still leave and go play crunchy candy or some overmatured version of pacman (although not every one knows what that is). 

I wanted only to tell you that Minecraft is actual more than breaking and building, there are worlds out there that have so much talent in house, that it would amaze you if you saw it. 
Well, we build slowly on some big maps, in the old style and in the 1.13 + versions, with all the nifty things it has and will be added in the future. Every server stands on its base of protection and playability, mine just as all the others, but sometimes things do not go as foreseen, plugins stop working, or half, or developers stop paying attention to it, start living their lives, or something took them away from access to the keyboard, that is the problem with plugins, they are made by mostly single persons and when they break all their fingers (could be worse), not a single word comes out of them, the plugin dies literally with them.....

Sad, but oh so true, they should all direct their sources through channels that can be lifted by others if needed, this way playability is guaranteed. Im talking about a part of the internet where those developers can store their creations and where only registered developers can enter or join, not a shady place, but registered.... Think of something....

One of those plugins is a credibility to a lot of people until the dev became sort of deaf.... PreciousStones. A shame that another person picked it up for his own gain and put some of it on the net for us to share, sadly he only updated the major stones, and not all of them, resulting in stones that will be recognized by the system and show what it is but functions not!

Another plugin I am very fond of, actually it is a premium one, shops, a chest with a glass box above it and in that glass box a floating item of the sale or purchase... Better get to it, he might want to hold the boat of until the official version is available... With the speed he is thinking, it is more likely that he is about to skip version 13 as we approach on October 17th 2018 version 1.13.2.

There are also a lot of other plugins that can keep up, luckily, one of them we started using a few months back and we had a lot of fun with it. EliteMobs. Oh, if you are a fighter, go fight some of those MF's (MobFriend's) lol

Go see for yourself, enjoy!

 

More and more often I stumble into the darkness of unexplained problems regarding the stability of my servers, hence the idea that servers are there to serve-you, but mine's annoying us a lot more. 

I have decided to split the main server up, gonna buy very soon a new machine and make it simple Windows 2012 R2 and install all needed and then pick a server and transfer the software to the newer machine.

This way I can appoint more memory to the single process.

 

I started out with one server, using only 8 Gb memory, and I did try to get to the bottom and pulled out all the power the machine could give. Once I installed twice the amount of memory, my server (windows 2012) had a real hard time adressing this newly added memory. Resulting in constant reset of the machine...

So I had to remove the memory from the motherboard, darn! Because I remembered that Windows server 2012 and all its predecessors have had problems upgrading after installation is done, it might have something to do with registering the memory and Windows being unable to see that the newly installed memory is good-enough-to-go. Same goes for all other upgrades, but I noticed a difference...  Memory is the real problem if there was a piece of hardware like harddisk, graphics, expansioncards..... etc....that would be accepted all the time.  This is a simple action, deregister item, (remove from hardwarelist), restart server, install / import the new item, check if server says it is ok, then start working and watch behavior...

 

Something like that.

Microsoft never gives info about this procedure, but it makes sense.....

Well, If you have similar results like I did, then I hope you won't have to buy a new server...

 

Good luck

What a beautifull day it is.....

If there are new players in the game, We welcome them with open arms......

We try to keep the senses stimulated by looking out for nice plugins that fit right in and makes gameplay a lot funnier. My good friend in Australia does quiet the same and harbours now close to one hundred plugins..... :o !!!

As Thanksgiving is getting closer, Christmas and the old and new, people either tend to spend more time with each other or play online with another. There is always time for a good game, if it is either one we host or another, it does not matter, just have fun!!

So, HAVE A LOT OF FUN!

 

 

Power shortage only in the USA? 

Hell no, we do not have it often, but once and a while it can go really wrong.... Last night the power went out and when it came on, my old NAS did not start the power cycle, rendering one disk (that is all that is in there) without power. What then happens, is simple, If a raid of disks are depending on each other, and one of them fails through powerloss, the whole volume is offline, safety....

I did not had the time to make a new article, so, I did this fast way... The MC servers will be available after the update is ready to begin....

 

Till then....

 

 

Why are there so much people on my server and here?????

Well, actually, there are almost none, but that's ok... I like it when visitors pass by and leave some message behind, not alone a message, but maybe something more, a contribution in builds would be much appreciated, on any of the worlds...

 

Since  early 2015 I have entertained a server for anyone who cared, or wanted to play, just my mistake to trust people too fast, and especially when they have not reached the mature age of 40. That said, I had a few kids abusing their gained rights given through me, but now they are all gone... Must they all play games in Minecraft? Well, games are ok, but they are so 80's, yes, 80's as in 1980!!! That was the time for games they like to play now...

I must admit, the people who make those plugins, well, they did a very good job, but my vision of Minecraft is survival and trade, and all things around that, not try to kill off every member that visits the server....

Luckily for me, more and more serverowners realize that, and so the hardcore players seriously need to 'play' instead of hunt all that can talk/type....

Let it be a game of fun, through several plugins I use to 'entertain' visitors, there is enough to explore...

Have fun....

As the title does suggest, I think there is something really wrong with either the hardware or the software...

So, what is the matter? I placed 20th march double size memory in this server, it went bad to worse....so I returned it a day later.

Just to tell you that 8GB *2 replaced by 16GB *2 is not always a good decision. It did not work. Even opening simple chrome and explore the internet was not done, i saw errors whom I never saw before, even with all my years as system administrator and worked with IT during the rise of the Internet. So weird, I had encountered in the past problems with memory in pc's, but now it was a server...

Long story short? I have still 8 GB in my server, MC runs within 2GB * 2 and a hub of 512 Mb, that does it for now.

 

Until I can afford a Xeon, with 16 or 32 GB, i'll let this rest for now.
