Fed up with CloudAtCost

Hey folks,

CloudAtCost made things 10x worse for our Minecraft server by "migrating" it the other day.

I have temporarily (I hope) moved the server to a machine I have in my basement.  This machine is pretty beefy, but it's got a lot of jobs, so I can't be 100% certain that you won't experience any problems while playing.

That said, this machine has a REAL SSD, and an Intel Xeon E3-1220V3 Haswell 3.1GHz quad-core processor.  It should be able to outperform the "Big Dog" (Lame Dog?) server instance from CloudAtCost.

Please let me know by a comment in this thread if you encounter any issues.

Server being moved

Greetings all,

Sorry for the unscheduled downtime.  CloudAtCost is moving our server to a different cluster.  Hopefully, it's a server cluster, not a cluster-f...

They told me it would take 4-5 hours.  We're past the 5 hour point now, and it's still not done.  Things may be derped until tomorrow.

Again, sorry about that.

What to expect from CloudAtCost

Greetings all,

After hosting some of the pwn9.com services on servers from CloudAtCost (http://cloudatcost.com) for the past year, I thought it necessary to document my experiences, for the benefit of others.

Background
=========

Over a year ago, our server hosting company was bought by another. The merger caused a ton of instability, our player base fell, and our revenues dropped to almost nothing. They were dark times, and I was looking for a way to keep our gaming community alive.

Enter CloudAtCost. An unbelievable deal, we bought a Big Dog 3 server for 50% off, so paid under $600 for it.

YASMP Updates!

Hey everyone. There are lots of great ideas floating around for YASMP, and we've managed to get some done recently.

  • ADDED PLAYER SHOPS! Do /warp shop  and read the info on the walls. There will be books coming soon with more information.
  • ADDED PRECIOUS STONES! Vampiric Redstone, Lapis of Life, Snitch. You can silk touch the ore blocks for free and will only be charged if placing them down. No refunds, plan carefully!
  • Added PlayerHeads plugin to make heads drop at a slightly faster rate
  • Serversigns plugin is fixed, this is what we use to give the rewards like at the end of parkour challenges.
  • Spawn Shop will be temporarily closed while it's moved to the center tower at player shops area.

It's the weekend! Come online and join us! Rent out a player shop early to reserve your ideal shop location!


Small update, we decided to price the shops based on how far away they were from the center plot (the warp location)

The corners (green) will be $500 every 2 weeks. Blue is $750/2w. Yellow is $1000/2w. and Orange will stay the same at $1250/2w.  So now people with low money can still get a shop but not have the shortest route to players. Thanks Devils666 for the idea, thanks Ivy_ for helping complete it. Remember you can get to shops with "/warp shop"

Upsilon Circuit: If You Die In This Game, You Can Never Play Again. Ever.

Source: http://kotaku.com/if-you-die-in-this-game-you-can-never-play-again-ever-1690928265

So imagine this: There is ONLY 1 server. There are 2 teams of 4 people (total of 8). Each team must fight monsters, avoid traps, and compete against the other team. When a person fights monsters or finds treasure, the exp and other rewards go to the AUDIENCE, the massive amount of people watching these 8 players. The audience gets to pick and choose what skill on the skill tree to put the exp on.

If you die, you can never ever play the game again. It's called Upsilon Circuit (upcoming game).

Keep an eye out for it!
