Bukkit update and recent lag

Event Horizon at nightBukkit released their first Recommended Build in quite a while today, and the server and its plugins are about to update. Yay for bugfixes! We will be switching to Bukkit 1.4.7-R1.0 in just a few minutes. If you haven’t already, you should update your Minecraft client to 1.4.7 to take advantage of the bug fixes it offers.

Downtime should only take around 15 minutes, but in the meantime, stay tuned to the forum and our IRC channel while the update takes place for any additional information. Thanks for your patience!

On a related note, we are aware that the server has been lagging and crashing somewhat more often than usual and are looking into possible causes. It is our hope that this update will be a step in the right direction, but further actions are planned to make sure your time in Cubic Worlds is smooth and trouble-free.

Anarchy Mode draws to a close

January AnarchyUnfortunately, last week, our main server had a fault with its hard drive and has been unconnectable ever since. Today, though, friend of the server kcband36 let us know that it’s fully functional again and ready for action. Huzzah!

Last week, to keep up morale, the server had been available on a temporary IP in “Anarchy Mode”, a period full of crazy happenings unlike anything you would normally see in the real Cubic Worlds. Although the downtime has been frustrating, it’s allowed staff to test out a few future additions to the server, and has given players the chance to mess around with WorldEdit and a lot of other commands which are usually reserved for Mods only. Fun times!
