A few minor changes

Morinaka Admin posted Mon at 22:38
Just thought i'd do a quick update on some changes made this morning.

The MFR Planter can no longer plant magical crops seeds that produce resources e.g. coal, iron, redstone, etc. This is due to a duplication bug where the planter would plant crops fully grown and the crops would give two seeds when broken instead of one seed and the essence.

  • Recipe was added for the Valve - Still Alive disc since it was uncraftable before.
  • Recipes added for Project:Red Marble and Basalt Cobblestone
  • Recipe added for Chisel Limestone
  • Recipe added for MFR Needlegun. This was uncraftable for some reason but adding a custom recipe now makes it craftable.

Since people keep telling us about it, we are aware the /back command is still broken. This will require a lot of effort to fix as it is a problem with the code itself not some minor config issue, so please be patient and take a bit more care not to die. I would recommend to not use it all until we make a post about it being fixed.

Hi there,

Last update: Back online!

Utc time:

Update 1: Please note that maximum players online is now 100, so don't hesitate joining when you see there is 40 online, there wont be any lag either :)

Update 2 [UTC: 10:15:00]: Server swap is now in progress. The ip pointed to be the dns name ( should change for you during the next hour if not already.

Update 3 [UTC: 13:20:00]: Server is in its last stages of getting up and running. Everything is moved and cleaned. Working on some security stuff and configuration atm. Hub Online ETA: UTC 14:30.

Update 4 [UTC: 14:30:00]: Fixing problems. Hub Online ETA: UTC 15:15.

Update  [UTC: 15:30:00]: Changed Bungeeplugin, setting up permissions. Global chat default fixed. Hub Online ETA: UTC 16:00.

Tomorrow we will switch to the new hardware. An update to this post will be made when we know more. This should offer the ability to significantly extend the interval between automated server restarts and provide better performance in general.

Current state of the new setup

A week ago we decided to swap to a bungeecord based setup immediately. This is far from an easy task however, and in practice requires a substantial amount of custom code for it to work well. I have hot-fixed and hacked most of the various issues we have encountered, but working on a better solution. The result is that we can easily support up to 80-100 players online. All servers haven been running at 20.0 TPS and crash free for a few days now.

Known issues

  1. Albeit servers are running smooth players can still encounter a "freeze"/"blocklag" sometimes. This is due to the nasty hack i made for player synchronization between warps/servers, which freezes proxy communication whenever a player warps. I am obviously working on this :)

  2. Global chat is currently lamer style imo :) ... i am working on getting default chat to become global.

  3. Missing warnings before automated restarts.

  4. Not sending players to the hub during world restarts ... at least players can then talk during those few minutes.

  5. Permission problems after kick or whitelist message. We can never solve this with 1.6.4. It is a problem with modded minecraft 1.6.4 using the various plugins we use etc. A simple relog fixes this though.

  6. Limit messages are currently not taking group limits into account. I will fix this soon, but no eta yet. Stuff above is more important.

  7. Limit synchronization. The problem with this is limited wrench/tool support, which means that periodic fallback synchronization must be relied on in order to reset use of a limited item. If you have problems: remove limited blocks in the area and wait a few minutes (sync is every 60 sec). I am also working on making more info available, but it is a bigger task.

  8. Missing ability to see warp states / get more info about current state of the server. 

  9. Slow warps / odd-case turn around, missing information during warps etc. - yeah well ... working on that too :P

If you know a bug and it is not listed here or in the bug reports forums, then please do report it in the bug forum. - Do not pollute global chat with it (we like a friendly atmosphere).

Thank you all for participating in the beta and keep reporting issues (especially if they are not listed-above).

With kind regards
NoxFTB staff

We will be having a few crashes the next few days on the different servers till we get the new serverbox. These aren't caused by anything other than the servers running out of memory since the servers are silky smooth till they go down. The other issues reported to us through the forum etc is being worked on but we're prioritizing one thing at a time. All in all bungeecording has proven itself to be a good solution and when it's finished it will be awesome. Thanks for everyone's support and patience. Here's a picture of a cat.
