The “World of Color Update” update is here! Doskii - 2017-06-14

Finally, the long awaited 1.12 update is here! While not a massive one, it does add a few neat changes including a new crafting system, hints for beginners, glazed terracotta, concrete, colored beds, illusioners, and parrots.

This update took, as usual, some work to get functioning properly. Almost half the server broke again which is just great. After many hours it now finally works pretty decent. It will require some more work to get everything top notch again but as always, it always works out sooner or later. If you find any bugs please do notify us via the contact us form or our Discord server. Also, for now, the PVPSurvival server is down but will be up again pretty soon.

Anyways, go log in and play with the pretty colors! Or, well, you know, the same colors but in different forms. The glazed terracotta is pretty neat though. And the parrots.

HD maps are back! Doskii - 2017-06-14

If you have visited the map on this site recently then you have probably noticed that some of the maps were partially if not completely black. This is because we have been regenerating the maps in a much higher quality! This means that you will be able to zoom in much more and be able to see every individual block with proper clarity.

The reason it was gone to begin with is because of the fact that these HD maps eat up hard drive storage like crazy and we just couldn’t afford to have them on, especially since the worlds were expending so drastically. It just wasn’t a priority. But now we have more storage to throw at the maps so that we can begin using the higher quality maps again! Yeah!

How you will use this is up to you. Use it to look at your home as you would with Google Maps, spy on your friends or look for good building locations. Regardless of what purpose you use it for, one thing stays the same, it’s pretty neat.

Merry Christmas, happy new year and 1.11.2 Doskii - 2016-12-27

Let’s keep this short. We (emilp2009, cckjellis and me) want to wish you all happy holidays and thank you all for joining the server and making this community the way it is this year. We wish you all a happy 2017 and hope most of you will stay with us for another year :D .

In other news, we have recently updated the server to 1.11.2 (and 1.11 quite some time ago that we never mentioned here). This was for once a painless update that didn’t kill anything. Yippie!

Anyways, hope you enjoy and have a great 2017!

1.10 Update! Doskii - 2016-08-08

Good news! We have finally been able to update the server after skipping 1.9.

Since the 1.8 UUID update and the death of bukkit, the server has been really hard to keep updated due to complicated API changes and third-party plugin developers just giving up on their projects (for the same reason). We were even updated to 1.9 for a day or two until we had to give up thanks to multiple "things" simply not working anymore which then caused other "things" that depended on the other "things" to stop working as well. The server simply wasn't working anymore on that update so we ended up rolling back to 1.8.8 and added a protocol hack so that we could allow 1.9 (and later 1.10) players to join even though the server was technically still 1.8.8. After that, we started waiting and working on fixing the problems.

After the surprising fast 1.10 update that came after it, we retried updating the server again and after a little while we got it to work relatively smoothly. We then pushed the updates to the main server a few days ago and then to the fallback and pvpSurvival servers a day or so later.

This update isn't completely flawless as of yet though. Some features are a bit shaky at the moment. For example, Spleef has a weird problem where you will get your inventory in the game (you can't lose it though) and Survival Games is currently disabled because it is refusing to let people leave the arena after joining. We will fix these issues as soon as possible.

Besides these minor problems, the server is working great and all the new items, mobs, pvp system etc are all completely functional in all survival worlds, creative world and minigames. Have fun.

Two new spleef maps! Doskii - 2016-07-25

We have just added two new spleef maps: BigArena by Doskii and OceanMonument by emilp2009.

BigArena is a map in wel.. a big arena. This is currently the biggest spleef map on the server and is recommended to be played on by a large group of players or a very very long 1vs1 match.

OceanMonument is a smaller map created for smaller groups of players who like fast pace action on an ocean monument in a desert oasis.
