On Tuesday morning, the 25th of February we will be performing maintenance to all servers which will lead to a downtime of approximately 1 hour. In this hour we will be changing the current economy plugin to a more efficient economy plugin which does exactly the same thing yet works faster / smoother. After this update all problems regarding the economy should be fixed.
During this maintenance the server will be offline, however the proxy will still be online. When connecting it will simply output an error like ”Could not connect to default server”.
The new economy plugin will be a lot faster and with less glitches. All user progress will stay as it is so you will not lose anything due to this change!
Have fun playing minecraft,
This is just a post to inform you that we were down in the night of Tuesday. For some reason the bungeecord server crashed which then resulted in the bungeecord server being restarted. A few days ago I made several changes to the configuration of the bungeecord server, which were for some reason not valid, thus the bungeecord server could not correctly load. The servers were therefore unreachable.
The configuration files of the bungeecord server have now been fixed, which should cause the server to startup again after a crash. Hereby I can inform you that the maximum downtime of the FutureRealms Network after a crash is less than 1 minute.
I hope this informs you enough.
What is a bungeecord server? A bungeecord server is a server you connect to, the bungeecord server makes it possible to send users to different predefined minecraft servers. Most networks are build with bungeecord.
What would happen if the bungeecord server crashes? First of all the crash would be detected, then within seconds the server will be automaticly stopped and after that the server will be started. This takes less than a minute!
As you might have noticed, Rebelwar has been removed from the Network. Long story short, the developer of Rebelwar abused his privileges of being a Developer. Just in case you don’t know, a developer is someone who makes plugins for the server.
So what actually happened? The developer made a plugin which automaticly reboots a server if it is too laggy. He decided to add a command to the plugin which, if run by an user, only gave a message. If the command was run by the Developer he would be given temporary Operator Rights. This allowed him to do acts such as WorldEdit, Spawning in items, kind of everything.
For this reason Rebelwar is removed and the Developer is permanently banned.
We will not be posting the updates on the main page anymore. You can find the changes & updates here: http://futurerealms.nl/forums/topic/changelog/
This topic was started on saturday 11-01-2014, which means not everything is in there. Make sure to read the Changelog daily so u get in touch with the changes, if you don’t, that is your fault not ours :D!
As you might have noticed playing on many Survival servers, including ours, the whole map is ruined after just several weeks. A solution for this would be to reset the map, but that is not what we’ll be doing.
What we are going to do is run a tool, every week, which deletes all areas which are not claimed, this means that all faction claimed areas stay as they are. Only the unclaimed areas are deleted and regenerated.
When will this tool be run? We are going to run this tool every week, 00:00 UTC+01:00 in the night from Sunday to Monday.
Which worlds are going to be cleaned up? For now, we are only going to perform this on the main world of the Factions server.
Will we lose our progress? Everything which is claimed will be kept.
Will this be applied to the Towny server aswell? I am planning on doing so, yet the plugin does not allow the preserving of Towny regions. I am still waiting for that feature to be implented.
I lost my building because it wasn’t claimed! We aren’t going back to a backup because you lost it, if everyone lost their buildings because of a bug, then of course we will go back. If u were just stupid not to claim your building, then it is your fault and yours only.
Are you sure this works? I have done some testing on a test server, on their it worked. The progress of cleaning the map up costs about 15 minutes. I can not guarantee a 100% succeed, I will be taking some backups just in case it goes wrong.
The last week we have had a ton of users being stuck in Nether Portals. We have now released a fix for this which should fix the issue permanently. If u still experience issues regarding this, please report this on the forum.
Any users who were stuck before, and still are stuck, can now login and get theirselves out by waiting several seconds.
The FutureRealms Staff team wishes all of you a happy New Year! We hope you had a great New Year and as a server we wish that the FutureRealms Network keeps existing for a lot more New Years!
Cheers on a successful New Year,
FutureRealms Staff team
As you might know the FutureRealms Network was having major issues regarding the uptime & performance, causing lags and downtimes. We have been able to address several issues causing this.
If donations allow us we are going to be buying a second dedicated server to host the Network on, this may still take several weeks. For now we will have to do it with the resources we got. I hope that in 4-5 weeks time we have enough donations to afford this second dedicated server. If we reach the Donation goal in January and the months ( 200 Euros monthly ), then we will be able to afford it.
I hope you had a great 2013 and I wish all of you a happy New Year!
