Diamonds on the hill!
After a lot of trouble crashes and restarts i can finally say its all stable now!
About a week ago our control panel failed us. crashed and it was impossible to recover it our server had some updates and the control panel simply did not like that. so he gave the ghost.
Since then i started working all day long to get a new panel up which was finally installed but still broken that day.
That new panel was fixable so i was working on changes into the OS itself to make it work and i finally found the issue biting the new panel and fixed it.
After thats done i could bring over our server and just after midnight that day it was transferred!
i started the worldgenerator again to create the world to its current size. 6000 to be exact. and it did do its job.
The next day the gen was almost done so i started our onlinemap update system to show the new chuncks.
That took long and was really laggy. but after like 10 crashes and restarts its all generated and smooth.
However there was one thing remaining the crash every 15 minutes for players themselves and many broken plugins……… pfff…
The plugins itself where fixed pretty easy but there was a lot to fix so after all this time i think i squashed all bugs!
For the crashes i managed to lower it by using packet tracing and slowing down those packages moving to the player.
Minecraft supports a delay of most 30 seconds before it times out. so i tried making it less often because this is a issue i cannot find nor fix. the connection losses are server wide so we cannot even access our panel or other services when that 10 seconds outage occuers however after calling the datacenter its lowered to mabe once a hour or so. i managed to play for about 4 hours without a disconnect.so i think the chances are very low it occuers.

KillswitchNL! congrats! u won 1 month premium!
And now for the promotion!
Strfighter81 has just been promoted to ELITE Admin!
strfighter81 joined a long time ago and i saw a staff function in him right away.
He has a clear view for whats right even when his english is not the best on earth he still manage to turn every bad situation around. very well done.
Hes longer then i can think of staff now so i think its time for a reward for his many ?deadly? testing skills and his many hours watching over everyone on the server. he helped a lot with building to improving the server communicating with the members and testing out plugins even when he die’s of it.
So hereby strfighter81 Ur now officially promoted to Elite admin
What does elite admin means it means u get a special particle color yeeeey! eghm no thats joking its not a visible rank with exception of the blue particles it also allows for management of the server in a much larger way full access to the game control panel aswell as all moderation command access now eligible for banning permanently aswell as rolling back changes and griefs and more.
Basically a overpowered admin function just a thin line below owner rank. Good job!
Now for the new gamemode. its gonna be a Mob arena! yes ! yeey! a game where u can play alone or with ur friends and try to win some neat prizes including item and money rewards its also fun to do.
It will work out of the hall of heroes where there are rooms for arena’s and hall of fame
More on that when it releases!
Well my fingers hurt of the amount of characters it typed. so im stopping now haha well anyways have fun and see you around! The bitcubes team!
