Every 2-3 weeks I get a report from a person of the server being griefed or their base being raided. A few new players join every month, but within 3-6 weeks they are tired of having their bases ruined. Thus there's no consistent player base, which makes it hard to promote moderators.…

If you are having trouble connecting to the server. There was a change in firewall rules and I missed an update in the DNS. Translation, I made a change but didn't change something else.

It's been rather quiet from me lately, I've not been on much and it appears not much has changed, but I have been working on a server side management system. Why build a system? Running a few scripts is easy, however after a while there are a few events to cater for, for example keeping the servers…

Both the Vanilla MC2 and Infinity servers will restart daily at 5am NZT. Hopefully this will prevent memory clogs on the server. I am moving towards a total management script that will better handle restarts and keep alive events and also multiples of these happening. Currently in testing. #servers

Rather then instant permanent ban, it would better to eventually allow players back on for another chance. This also eliminates problem players from coming back on straight away under the guise of saying they will be good. Please read the ban policy for more information. #website
