In an effort to make perks for affordable to the average player we have modified the donation packages slightly. No longer will an individual have to pay one hundred dollars or more to be able to fly.
That being said I would like to let previous donors know that the packages they bought there were permanent will remain that way unaltered. You will have the option of going over to the monthly system or keep what you currently have with no risk of future costs.
You can find these new Donation packages on the Donation Ranks page or by clicking this link.
Donations can be made by credit/debit cards, paypal account, or by echeck. All subscriptions can be canceled by you via your user control panel or by contacting ntall1 personaly.
The VIP supporter pack is a one time payment option that grants the user access to Diamond tier perks for life.
In addition to the subscriber packages there will be a few micro transaction purchases like extra sethomes, more elusive perks like vanish, and hopefully soon creative mode. Micro transactions have not been set up yet but will be available shorty.
I am updating the server to 1.4 right now. This is a pretty large update and will require me to take the server offline while the update is happening.
Things to do: Backup the world maps. (4 gigs of data to back up in 6000 separate files) Redo permissions. Transfer player.dat files (hope it works) Complete Map Rotation. Load and Test Anti-Cheat/Anti-Xray/Anti-Grief. Load and Test Homes, Warps, and Towns. Double Check old config files for Map Rotation. Bring Server back Live with 1.4
I will cross things off the list as they are completed.. Estimated Update ETA is about 3-5 hours.
This update brought to you buy: (Big thanks to these guys and gals.)
It is the same every update. It is not possible to update a bukkit server without an update to bukkit. Once the update is released by Jeb. Then bukkit takes the update and starts working. They have to code everything from the time they get the release.
I do not work for bukkit so there is no way for me to know when an update will be released but if you follow bukkit on twitter or just keep posted at www.bukkit.org you will be able to keep up to date with current update info.
I will update the server as soon as there is a stable bukkit build for 1.4.
If you did update.. you will either have to downgrade your client to get on the server.. or you will have to wait. You can always log into the tekkit server in the mean time if you updated too early.
Currently the 1.2.5 world is our main world, and the 1.3 world is the secondary world. During this update I will switching that. So the main world will then be the 1.3 map, and the secondary world will be the 1.2.5 map.
How does this affect me?
The player.dat files are stored in the map file. So when I switch you will no longer have your old player.dat files.. The player.dat files stores the players inventory and location on the server. So when you log out. Make sure you have put all your inventory items into chests, and make sure you have set your homes so you can get back to them. Do those 2 things you will you not be affected by the map rotation.
You will have until there is a stable 1.4 bukkit build. Very rough ETA 1-3 days.
