Map weirdness finally sorted out.

Hello wood punchers!  A minor update today.  (Vacation has been good for the minecraft server!)

The weirdness with the map generation has finally been sorted out, and new and updated maps are on their way!  We don’t have one set up for the new new new world yet, but Punchwood and PW19 should be fresh and happy!  The Turtles’ roller coaster is finally visible!

Happy exploring!

New world on-line!

Hello again wood punchers!

A new world has been created to be 100% Minecraft 1.12 generated!  It’s online now as “P2”, and the portals at spawn of Punchwood and P9 that previously went to the spawn point of P1 have been modified to take you to the spawn point of P2.  It also has portals back to Punchwood and P9.  The world for Punchwood 1.11 (aka P1) has been taken offline.

I personally will be starting fresh in P2, and working my way up from scratch!

As always, let me know if you have any problems, questions, suggestions, or whatever!

Server updated to 1.12

Hello fellow miners!  Big news today!

The server has been updated to version 1.12!  There’s a whole lot of new stuff in this new update!

Since world 1.11 never really got off the ground, we are very likely to kill that map and start a new world of 1.12 in its place.  I know the Turtle clan is still active in 1.9, so it makes sense not to replace that world.  We’ll keep classic Punchwood online as usual!

PLEASE let me know if you see any problems, bugs, or any other types of issues!  We’re still at full plugin strength, so also let me know if any of our usual plugin commands change their behavior.

Let me know what you think!

New world for version 1.11 added!

Hello fellow miners!

I have created a new world for version 1.11.  The world is nominally called “Punchwood 1.11”, and the alias in game will be P1.

There are portals at the /spawn point of each world for transferring between worlds.  Your /sethome and /home commands will work fine, and will transfer you across worlds.  You can still only have one /home… and you’ll always go to it regardless of what world you’re in when you use the command.  The /spawn command will always bring you back to spawn of world Punchwood 1.9 (P9) for now.

There’s a new map now for Punchwood 1.11 (P1)!

As always, please let me know if you have any questions or problems!

Server updated! Old world is back!

Hello friends!

I have updated the server to version 1.11, and have re-enabled our multi-world plugin, so the old world, Punchwood, is once again available!  I have re-added the link to that world’s map in our menu above.

I am thinking about how we might want to start a new world.  We have a couple of options…

  1. We can archive off PW19 (the current “new” world) and start a new world (PW11) fresh, while keeping our portals back to Punchwood.
  2. We can keep PW19 around, and also start a new world, and have all three worlds available.
  3. We can not start a new world for version 1.11 at all, and just keep PW19 and Punchwood.

What do y’all think?  Let me know!

Server troubles

Good morning fellow wood punchers!

Unfortunately, it seems we’re having a small service outage.  The host that runs our server has run out of space on the disk that we’re using.  This problem has happened several times recently, and I’m pushing them for a more permanent fix.  If you try to get to the server, and see that it is offline, that means we don’t quite have it fixed yet, though I’m hoping we’ll be back up and running within a couple hours of this post.

Updated to Minecraft version 1.10

Hello fellow miners!

I have updated the server to version 1.10.  The changelog has info on all the new goodies in the new version.

This version seems pretty incremental, and the new block types don’t seem generally limited to only new chunks… so we won’t reset the world for this one.  :)  We’ll continue with the name PW19 for the world, and still keep 1.9 on the maps.

As always, please let me know if you spot any problems at all!

Server h4xx0rz.

Hello friends!  Just a quick update to let you know that our lovely little wordpress-based site was “hacked” a couple days ago.  Not sure how they got in, but I’m presuming it was a bug in WordPress itself, or one of the plugins I use.  They left traces of a backdoor that they installed.  That has been removed, the admin password changed, WordPress re-installed, and I’ve checked over the rest of the site and it looks like everything is ok.

This did not affect our Minecraft game server.

If you see anything that doesn’t look right on this site, please let me know right away!  Happy Mining!

Upgrades done!

The upgrade process ended up being pretty painless!  It’s all done now, and things appear to be running smoothly.  As always, please let me know if you spot any problems!
