Long time no see!

Hi guys!

Sorry for the inactivity on here, but as I said before, we're more active on the Discord server than here (for announcements anyway).

So to sum up what has happened:
I will not be active due to studies, but will periodically come on to fix things that break.

We have switched to a web panel, meaning that admins have basic control over the servers and can restart servers if necessary, and Bushy doesn't have to cry each time he has trouble getting into Console. This is also the cause of the 1 - 2 day downtime (depending on the different servers, Prisons came up last and Proxy / Hub came up first).

While everything has been migrated, please do report any issues to us on the Discord server or through the forums.

Cya!

P.S. Creative is still facing issues after the recent plot update.

Summary of this issue is on the Discord server.

Heyo! Little update. Today, a lil birdy told me that the server had a hub. I didn't believe it so I went on and saw for myself - there was indeed a hub.

Anyway, BossmanCentral has been planning this for the past week or so and we have successfully converted the server into a network!

The hub supports Minecraft versions 1.8 to 1.13.1, factions supports 1.9 to 1.13.1, creative will support 1.13.1 only (to allow for new blocks to be used), skyblock should support 1.8 to 1.13.1.

Join our Discord at https://discord.gg/86TH3c7 for more timely updates.

EDIT: Creative is now up! Running fresh 1.13.1.

P.S. The little birdy also told me ranks and keys are 50% off until 4th November! Insane.

Server up?

Oakly posted Oct 1, 18

Yes! Now with support from 1.9 to 1.13.1.

For best performance, stick to 1.12.2. The server runs that.

We've updated to 1.12.2 for stability. Everything runs a lot smoother now and we are not expecting anymore crashes from player connections. I will still be monitoring as it goes.

Server IP: bmc.negusflex.com

Come join us!

Ouch.

So... if you're wondering, the server did crash during launch.

Why?

Well, a whole 18 hours later, we still don't know the cause.

However, we have tried swapping plugins, even swapping factions, but none seem to fix the issue.

Then why didn't you fix this before releasing?? I'm disappointed.

Yeah, well, I can reassure you that I'm more disappointed than you are. I really wanted the launch to be a success. In the end, we spent 2 whole hours trying to fix the issue but to no avail. This issue only appeared after more than 15 people logged onto the server at the same time.

Our network developer has done some research and apparently this issue is common within 1.8.8 servers.

So is the server up??

As of writing this post, yesHowever, I am unable to guarantee stability.

How are you going to prevent this from happening again?

Well, there's no full solution until more people start joining. Currently, I have switched the server over to PaperSpigot in an effort to optimize the server. The server has 32 GB RAM allocated, and as PaperSpigot is a more optimized, patched fork of Spigot, it should in theory run better. Hopefully, this will allow the server to stay up despite more players connecting at the same time.

But what if the server crashes again?

Don't worry. I'll be monitoring the server for another 5 to 6 hours, and if the crash occurs again, we will evaluate our options.

Thank you for your patience. Be sure to join the Discord server at the top right above for live updates.
