Hello all, the new map has been up for quite some time now, and some roads aren't even 1/4th of the way done. This is beginning to be a minor problem for some users, who wish to travel out further than others. This being said, we need to get the roads done soon.
@Penguinchao has already created the warps to 7500 in each direction, the buildings have yet to be built. They're eventually going to need a road from them, and we need materials to do so.
If you go to spawn, using "/spawn," follow the blue path to the donations room! There you can find 4 shops signs. The four materials that are required to finish this are stone, stone slabs, stone brick, and stone brick slabs. We can finish this soon, but it requires a little help.
Just a bit ago I created the main four warp destinations; to test them out type "/warp north/south/east/west." They will take you 7500 blocks away from the center of spawn in their respective directions. One thing you will notice is that they take you, well, into the middle of nowhere. Because of this "nowhereness," we'll be creating warp stations like on the old map.
A design for these warps has not been picked, so we will be taking warp submissions. If you have one or more build designs, then feel free to submit them (if you had a spawn design that did not get accepted, then you're welcome to submit it as a warp). Be mindful of the materials involved, because we will be building them legit (and yes, the people who physically build the warps will be paid). Please be respectful of each other and their building styles.
To submit a design simply reply to this thread with screenshots (preferrably with default texture pack) and a description. If the design is not yours, then...
We've been having some rather annoying database issues on the new server. From disk i/o tuning (the lag yesterday) to connection drops. The more serious of the issues being the latter, because logblock wasn't logging block history properly. At one point, while trying to fix database connection issues, the server completely crashed, and unfortunately the safe script that saves the entire world every half an hour was misconfigured. The world got rolled back quite a few hours, and due to the incomplete logblock log, a lot of it couldn't be recovered (some could, though. leaving some sections a little "randomly" rolled back)
Basically, everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Resulted in some short term permanent rollbacks. I'm super sorry
Most of the issues seem to be fixed. There is an issue with homes that still needs attention, and I'm afraid some homes that were set today may be lost, though it will be fixed within the next few minutes.
