Temporary self-hosting until Monday 17th

I'm on fiyyyaaahhhh

Ahoy Cubians!

In order to compare performance with Nodecraft, our current “real” host, Cubic Worlds will be on a different IP for the next week as I gather as much information as I can to decide what our best option is for launching World 5 as quickly as possible.

There have still been an irksome number of server fires over the last few weeks, so we’ll see if the crashes continue during self-hosting. If they do – well, something in the server setup is the problem. If not, we might need a new host.

Let’s see how it goes! You can connect to the server for the next week at the new IP:

Thanks for your patience. Happy Minecrafting!

Cubic Worlds has a new IP address!

If you find yourself unable to connect to the server, our host recently migrated all of the stuff that makes Cubic Worlds tick to some brand new server hardware. This has meant that our IP address has changed, and it’ll take up to 48 hours for our ‘play.cubicworlds.net’ shortcut to update.

You can connect to us at our new address here:

See you there, and thanks for your patience!

In other news, stay tuned later this week for details of a weekend event to celebrate, and remember that we’re also going to be running monthly PSTIM events for at least the rest of this year. A little bird tells me that the next one will probably involve Terraria… the details will be on Discord!
