Our XenForo-based forum is quite a number of updates behind the most recent version and I want to update us so that we’re secure and have all of the shiniest features available. I’ll be doing some maintenance work this coming Thursday 12th March starting at around 10:00 GMT, and the forum is likely to be unavailable during the work.
Downtime should hopefully be no longer than a couple of hours. You’ll still be able to tune into our IRC channel to chat with folks on the server and to get updates on how the forum work is going.
Thanks for your patience!
It’s been a long ol’ while but I’m glad to announce that Cubic Worlds has finally updated to support Minecraft 1.8! Please enjoy the juicy new features under the benevolent supervision of our new bunny overlords. Many yays echoed around the land. 😀
We’ve spent the last few days giving it a proper “live test” and no serious problems have been found – thanks to everyone for braving the limbo! Our 1.8 status is now confirmed and we should not need to roll back.
Voxellia seems to be holding it’s breath for something, though – I wonder what it might be?…
“Third time’s the charm!”
Another event that we’ve tried to run in the past has been Capture the Tower, a competitive PvP capture-the-flag style game created by Macpants. For various reasons things just haven’t worked out in the past, but now we hope to give it the proper outing that it deserves!
Join us on Saturday 13th December at around 18:00 GMT to take part in some sweet tower-capturing fun! As always, more information is on our forum in this ‘ere thread.
“Ain’t no server downtime gonna stop the fish this time!”
Technical problems during October sadly meant we couldn’t host Stomp when we first advertised it, but we’re now finally able to announce that new dates have been set and you’ll be able to fishslap your enemies on two days over this coming weekend – Friday 5th and Sunday 7th at around 19:00 GMT!
Hope you’ll join us there for a PvP event that is guaranteed to be unique! Learn more on the official thread on our forum.
This year’s Christmas Island, a stunningly beautiful winter holiday paradise, is now open for all players on the server to explore! Several hidden secrets and easter eggs (or should that be Christmas eggs?) are scattered around the snowy landscape. How many can you find?
All of the info you’ll ever need about the island, including how to get there, can be found on this thread in our forum. Enjoy!
After much hand-wringing, wailing, raging, and general despair, I’m very happy to say that Cubic Worlds will be back online later today!
The downtime over the past month was due to our previous host, HostBlaze, being bought out by MCProHosting. I hope that we’ll be running smoothly again as we head towards a holiday season that’s full of cake, marmots, creepers, and most importantly, cubes!
One important note: Please remove the server’s old address from your Minecraft bookmarks. It’s under new ownership and is most definitely not family safe.
Our new addresses are:
- IP: 184.108.40.206:31879
- Shortcut: play.cubicworlds.net:31879
Thank you all for your patience! See you online soon, and meanwhile, join our IRC channel for news on the cutting edge.
Get your enchanted kippers out of the fridge and prepare yourselves for the craziest PvP event you’ve ever seen!
In Stomp you must fishslap your enemies before they do the same to you – become the last man standing in one of four masterfully built arenas! Magical fish not enough to get the job done? There’s more weird and wonderful equipment that you can take three picks from to help you become king of the hill, so join us on Friday 3rd October and Sunday 5th October at around 19:00 GMT to take part!
Also coming up during this week and over the weekend is PSTIM #5 where we’ll be playing Prop Hunt in Garry’s Mod. The server will be up for a test session on Thursday 2nd October at around 19:00 GMT, with two main events happening on Saturday 4th October at 09:00 and 18:00 GMT.
“Whoa. It’s, like, totally green, man…”
This weekend will also see us paint green the names of some new Citizens – it’s been slightly longer than the usual fortnight gap between promotions so there are quite a few names on the list…
You can see a full list of Citizens-to-be over on our forum, here. As always, expect there to be plenty of cake!
Though we’ve not mentioned them yet on our blog, over the last month or so we have been picking out a selection of different games to play together as part of our PSTIM events. Learn more here!
This time around we’ve decided to play Terraria. A Cubic Worlds server will be running for it throughout the coming weekend. You’ll be able to dig your way to victory starting at around 08:30 GMT on Saturday 13th – I wonder how many bosses we’ll be able to kill?
The server will be reset for closing event at around 19:00 GMT on Sunday 14th. Two teams will compete in the Oresome Finale to see who can mine (or steal!) the most ores and store them safely in their fort! It’s guaranteed to be something different and it may even run without some unexpected problem… *innocent whistle* See you there!
Following the recent appointment of three new Mods for the server – Koads, SmokeAndMirrors, and brickviking, this weekend it’s time for some more promotions as we hold our second Citizen Day! New Citizens have been listed on our forum here and the green paint will be splattered around throughout the weekend. Congratulations to all involved!
Also taking place tomorrow, Saturday the 19th, will be the third Voxellian Rules Leaf Spleef Tournament. Perhaps you’ll be able to wrestle the champion’s crown from a field of zealous contenders – but only if you attend from around 18:00 GMT!
See you there!
