While you're at it, what will it take to get the Zookeeper's MC server up to date? We're anxious to try the new boats and are all set to tackle the Enderdragon this weekend.

And while you're at it, clean the place up. Looks like a bunch of wild animals live here or something. I'll admit it looks noticeably better since KoB and Odd Bob have been gone, but it still looks like you might let Smasho in here or something. Gross.

Not updated? Argh, they're supposed to do it automatically. I'll take a gander at it tonight.

The 1.9 update is not listed, so I sent in a service request. Will let keep you updated...

BTW - I've downloaded a backup copy. 1.7gb

1.7 gigs! We've been busy!  :yup:

Still no response. In fact, I received no confirmation email in regards to help request and they've not posted on any of their media outlets or blog since 2014.

I'll see if I can activate my realms trial when I get home if you guys are interested. At least you'll be able to play the new update together.

Well that certainly is disappointing.

And just for the record, I am going to be busy on most weekends for the foreseeable future, so I don't know how much time BM and I are going to have to adventure together. I had started working on a PvP arena a while back, though, and with this new update I thought I would maybe finish that, so then when we did have time we could spend it killing each other.

Now, though, especially with the server situation as it is, I'm debating other options, like creating a separate world with the arena in it and then hosting that for BM and anyone else who wants to join in the mayhem. I doubt this would be a simple prospect, though--the hosting part, that is. So who knows.

I made a 14 day trial on a Minecraft realm. I would need to be reminded what your player names are to add you.

It does have a world upload feature so this would probably be a good option if the server host goes kaput. I don't know how price compares :/

So I was able to get on a bit and check the realm out with BM. This was my first time playing 1.9--combat is a lot harder now! And I think not having any armor at first had something to do with it. It was very exciting, to say the least.

I've sent 3 emails and heard nothing from these people. When I have a chance, I'll give them a call as they're located in L.A..

Since we're unable to play, I've stopped the automatic annual payment which will be due next month.

I've download the map, 1.7gb so if the decision is to start a new server, we have the needed files.

Wow, that's pretty lame. Thanks for trying to get on top of this!

BM and I are currently playing around in (separate) SSP worlds. It's been a really long time since I've played SSP. Totally different game. Fun in its own way. But it will nice to get back on the server eventually.

Could you send me a copy of those files? Electronically or on a thumb drive? I'd like to see about getting it set up again and since suho and me use it the most, we would be willing to take on the responsibility for it. If you think you want to re-host it somewhere, I would gladly pay the yearly subscription since we spend the most time on it.

If we can't work something out, the fees on the realms are fairly reasonable on a longer subscription and we can start over via that route.

If it isn't improper for me to weigh in, I'd like to say the trial for realms went smoothly for me. The interface worked well, players can only login by invitation, limits and pricing are reasonable. It's officially supported by Mojang so it's the first to get fixes and they're not going to fall off the map like most 3rd party hosts do. The down-side (I guess) is that your forced to play the most recent version and no mods. That's not been a problem for us though.

As a reminder, you can upload a map through realms, so you won't need to start over necessarily.

This I didn't know, but I've yet to do my homework on Realms.

The best way would likely be a thumb drive. If you want to contact me via FB, I can UPS it next week.

I don't play much any more and I'd rather not deal with it. They actually had the nerve to send me an invoice!

I'm sorry to hear that, 'Keet. Those guys are real jerks. Thanks for being such a gracious host for so long!

I'll drop my address off on FB PM. If you like, I'll happily PayPal the money to cover the the drive and the shipping.

As Rae said, thank you for all the time, effort and $$$ you've put into this. We greatly appreciate all that you've done!  :bow:

Now to go look into loading the world into Realms or finding a decent server for it.
Title: Re: Server Status
Post by: Building Maintenance on April 07, 2016, 07:11:23 PM
So it begins. After discussing our options, we've decided to go with a Realm. I have it up and running with a game I had on my MC client, we will be playing on that and probably starting a new world later. Once I receive the files for the old server, we'll see where we stand on loading it in. Rae, I'll be sending you and invite as soon as my upload completes, my upload speeds are glacial at best.  :sadnod:

Anyone else that thinks they might like access can post their game name here and I'll put it before THE COMMITTEE!  :beat:

At the moment, I have a world I've been playing in loaded. Not certain where you'll spawn, but it should be within sight of a large tower under construction and the evil underground lair is just north of it. Any provisions you need are in the chests there and you are welcome to them.

Enjoy!

I haven't actually cooperated with anyone in years. We should make this a habit. What do you guys do? Schedule a time once a week or something?
Title: Re: Server Status
Post by: Building Maintenance on April 07, 2016, 09:14:41 PM
Normally our schedules coincide early on Saturday mornings, between midnight and 1 a.m. eastern, which is about 3 in the afternoon for Suho in Korea. I started a new thread on the Pub Crawlers forum so that we can try to coordinate activities.  :thumbup:
