Hello, loyal followers of the server! We want to give you an update, about the current state of the server.
We have decided to install three mods (and Forge): ThaumCraft, BuildCraft, and MystCraft. If you don't know anything about the mods, and want to use them; ask me or FJ ingame, or google it. It's probably best if you don't read about Thaumcraft, as 90% of the mod, is about discovering things for yourself. Make sure you are extremely careful though, and don't experiment too close to spawn ￼
If we go public these mods will be limited. The limitations will probably include some parts of the mods, being unavailable, and some of it being limited to respected players.
Since these mods include alterations to world generation, we felt it was best to generate a new world. This new world has been dubed Meronia (by FJ). We did however keep the spawn area from Gorean. Lastly if you still follow the server, and would like to enter (In a sort of closed beta thingy :/), please message Mr_FJ, or send an e-mail to: [email protected]
- Rynotamer (75% of this post was edited and corrected by Mr_FJ, because Rynotamer is an idiot ;))
I'm sorry if you didn't want the old world erased, I was very much in doubts about the decision myself... Ultimately I think it was the right choice. If you had/have a big project that you REALLY want to save, please message me and we can talk about moving it over - Mr_FJ
Here's a picture of the town at spawn town, and a bonus picture (In game!):

Right now, craftbukkit is being annoying, and I'm still trying to figure it out 100% (With plugins and such)
In the meantime, me and a few other admins have been working on something that was started way back then. Here are some teasers from the adventure that will be at spawn:
That's all the teaser you get for now The adventure will be pretty long, and most of it, should be redo-able, after someone has completed the adventure.
And now for something completely different. We've been sampling some road types, to figure out what the standard road type should be on the server. Here is a picture of us going nuts trying all kinds of different combinations. Let me know which one(s) you like:
We also sampled some lamps for the roads, again let me know which one(s) you like:
Meanwhile, behind the scenes, I'm trying to decide on wether I want some specific plugins to be on the server, and keeping a close eye on the bukkit forums. I'm also busy with some pre examns in school, but it's not too much for me to handle both things. The server WILL go up again. Soon(tm).

I'm sorry I've been neglecting all of you for so long, I don't have a good excuse, other than personal life, and craftbukkit sucks. The server is not dead forever, I will make it work again, when I, or my friend, have bought a new router... Hopefully soon

Hello, my fellow players of the server. Sorry the server has been down so long, but with the 1.0.0 update of minecraft, craftbukkit taking so long to update, along with the difficulties of installing craftbukkit and optimizing the server on a Linux machine. Plus personal delays have come up. All these things have just added up into the downtime of the server. But do not fret, expect new and great things, Less lag, more uptime, and some other exciting stuff. Oh we also have a new map if you did not know. With all that said, expect the server to be up in the next few years...lol
By the way: Who is still here Please write in the comments if you are one of the lovely few people still with with us and our server. Thank you for the patience <3

Right, I hope everyone checks out the website, from time to time... And I hope people make a thread, on here, if they feel the website/server, is missing anything (HINT HINT) If people don't, I won't be able to update them, and I won't be able to make improvements I appreciate all critic! Even if I may not like the critic
Anyways, on to the news, which I will supply in Q&A form.
Q: Umm, I can't log on, but the server status (on the right -> ) says it's working/online!!!!
A: As you may have noticed, the server IP has changed, and when it did, I decided to set up a hostname in it's place. If you already know that, try adding :3000 to the end of the hostname. If THAT doesn't work, make a forum post, OR send me a pm, OR send an E-mail to: JAdair at [email protected], becuase my email is broken at the moment
Q: The IP changed? WHY??? What does this mean for me?
A: Well, you need to type something new, to enter the server: ariyun.no-ip.org
Q: What is a hostname???
A: Short version: It's like an IP. Long version: All websites are located on server computers, those computers have IP's. A hostname, is the url, that redirects you to the IP of the server computer, where the website is located.
Q: So why did you do this, is it a good thing? If yes, why? Will the IP change again?
A: Yes the IP could change again, I created a hostname; so that next time the IP changes, you don't have to change anything, I will just change which IP, the hostname leads too! More work for me, less work for you guys. I hope you think that is a good thing
Q: This is all very confusing... What exactly do I need to do?
A: Simply go in to Minecraft and press multiplayer, then write: ariyun.no-ip.org and press join. If that doesn't work, try with: ariyun.no-ip.org:3000
Hope to see you all on the server soon And please let me know in the comments, if you are interested in me making a TeamSpeak server? And what do you think of a 1$ fee to enter the Nether? I need some money to upgrade the server
EDIT: WAUW, GOOD JOB SLEEKSERVERS! They changed the ip again without telling me -_- Anyways, working now (Just conenct to the hostname as it says on the right -> )

I received the ofllowing E-mail from my host, Sleek Servers:
Unfortunately we will be closing down the Chicago location because it has become too costly for us and we cannot manage / repair our equipment without paying them an additional fee. IF we were charging more for our game servers than this wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately we tried charging more for premium locations without success. The Chicago location has been great, but simply put, we are not making enough money to justify the support and labor we put into it. We have also been running into hardware issues with one of our game server machines. We want to maintain a high up time with our systems and we cannot repair them quickly when they go down.
We will need to transfer your game server to one of our other available locations (Atlanta, Kansas City, or Los Angeles). Kansas City is within the same region as Chicago and it would probably be the best choice for your move. Unfortunately we cannot move IP's so your IP will change. Please submit a support ticket when you're ready for the move and be sure to specify what location you would like to move to. Lately because of the hardware issues we may or may not be able to move your game server. IF the system goes down then we may have to create a new server for you.
IMPORTANT: Minecraft users can only move to Kansas City. However we cannot transfer your maps because TCAdmin has troubles with it. HOWEVER you can! You can download your map folder using FTP or you can zip it up first and then download it. We ask that you open a support ticket when you're ready for your replacement Kansas City server. Chicago servers will remain online until June 30th 2011. IF you do not contact us for a replacement server in time we can still create one for you, however you will not have access to your old server files.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. The Chicago location has simply become too costly for us.
If you have any questions, please open a support ticket!
So I figured, since the server is getting a new name, I should try getting a hostname to work So it will either be: ariyun.no-ip.org, or ariyun.co.cc, if I can make that work. How does that sound?
On a second note, I have a very complicated plan, that I hope to activate soon. Warning the following image, is extremely complicated!!!(badjoke):
