If we are going to reset the server, perhaps for a few hours before hand we could open the server up to general hijinks? :D

@zach
Just a suggestion, isn't it better to just get a better internet connection at your place and host it from there. Was thinking of upgrading my connection for a while but cant do it yet as im still under contract. But if i do you'll be first on my list to maintain it.

I have a 40/40 mbps connection, which is plenty for hosting a server here.

However, I do not;
  • want to run a server from my flat, as it is noisy and frankly a bit silly.
  • have a computer free for running a server 24/7
  • have an uninterruptible power supply, nor a guarantee from my ISP that the connection will be up even 90% of the time (it has been known to fail for hours or even days on end)
  • have two HDDs for setting up RAID to avoid data loss
  • like the idea of opening up my network to shenanigans
  • have any interest whatsoever in hardware of any sort, including server hardware.
  • have an off-site backup facility
  • mind paying $80 for dedicated, experienced professionals to handle the tasks I consider menial
  • like the idea of relying on a single IV member (I have - or mean to have - distributed the SSH password for the server to our moderators)
Truth be told, while running a server from any random flat is indeed cheap, it comes at a huge cost to security, maintenance and stability.

I am more than prepared to pay the $80 - or even double that - for us to have our Introversion Minecraft Server in good (great) hands.

I am, however, not keen on us losing the aforementioned security and stability, just to save a bit of cash ... not to mention the steep increase in required maintenance, either for me or for someone else.
Finally, we would become entirely reliant on a single member of the community, much more so than we are reliant on me, today.

-

Those are (most of) my reasons to go with a slightly expensive, very recommendable VPS host.

I will let you know when the final backup of our current world has been archived safely :P

Good deal. I don't think anyone can burn down my house, but with some TNT it could get interesting. ;)

Oh, if you do open up a donate option, could you link to it through the OP of whatever active thread we are using? I always forget eh website address, and accidently deleted my bookmark.

Double post.

Postponing reset till later, or tomorrow: 30 hours of no sleep.

EDIT: Current world has been archived. No changes will be saved from now on.

Rendering out our current map now. When that is done, I will reset the world.

Indeed!

Starting the game out, at night, with nothing built anywhere is LOTS of fun!

So many dogs...

So, do we have an idea on if/when work will begin on the project? I want to know if I should start stock piling any resources.

Honestly, we'll need so many resources that you can start stockpiling them regardless of start date :P

However, I think it's currently expected the main construction to fully start around early July or similar. That said, I see no reason why people can't start as soon as a suitable location has been scouted, even if the main work doesn't start until later.

On a related note, what material? Cactus green wool or lime green wool? Or something else entirely?
