Hello people of the server.

As some of you may know, the server is down at the moment. (Attempt at calming you with a bad joke)
It will be up as soon as I get my credit card, as my old one had to be locked, because I forgot my wallet in the bus. It was supposed to arrive in the mail friday, and my bank (nor postal service) is not known for slacking. So it is more than likely I will have it monday/tuesday.
At which point the server will go back up. (and a rendered map of the server)

On a side note, I recommend reading this thread.
And I saw this on twitter:

speedylegs8: will you upgrade the multiplayer so you dont have to put in a ip and just choose from a big list of all the servers"

jeb_: @speedylegs8 Yes, it's included in 1.8

I don't know how that could even work with bukkit, but if it magically does, I am excited :)

That's all for now. As always, feel free ot emailme, pm me, or create a forum thread about ANY questions or suggestions :) 
My internet was fixed a little while ago, so I will check my email almost every day now :)

Edit: I payed a few days ago, and am now waiting for the server to go back up, I didn't notify sleekservers when I couldn't pay :/ So I'm giving them a few days to reconize I have payed again ;P

I accidentially...

So I can't pay for the server until the 1st  of September; at which point, it will be back up again :( Unless I can find a solution later today, in which case I will edit this post, to let you know.

Also, when 1.8 hits (Hopefully soon?) there will be some decisions to make about the server, I'm hoping that by posting this early, I can catch as many people as possible: I would like to have a chat/forum meeting about it, when 1.8 hits. So please check the website a lot, when Notch has announced the release date of 1.8. I will be posting some info then.

If you see an item with a fire icon that's called "Undefined Item" in your chest, DO NOT touch it. It'll make you crash and not be able to connect. Just posting this until Fj fixes the problem.

Help the server grow.

It will help make the server get more people :)

Thanks! :D

Creating Craftbukkit plugin(s)

Posted by Mr_FJ on July 25, 2011 at 7:18 PM Comments comments (1)

Does anyone, know anything about coding craftbukkit plugins? That would be very helpful ;) Leave a comment.

By the way, the server is working again, except for minor sutff, which I will be fixing over the next few days.
I'm so sorry for all the down time lately :( I promise I will get server updated VERY fast, when 1.8 comes out. I hope I didn't loose all of you guys due to downtime :/

Server is up again!!! With a hostname!!! And works again! (Yes it was broken for a short while)

Posted by Mr_FJ on June 22, 2011 at 10:25 PM Comments comments (2)

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:

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: and press join. If that doesn't work, try with:

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 -> )

TLDR: Changing ip, and trying to get a hostname.

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 :D So it will either be:, or, 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):

I want to apologize for all the down time the server have been having lately, I hope we haven't lost too many people because of it. The truth is, the server is running out of memory constantly, which from my experience with other servers, shouldn't happen... Even from Minecraft standards, the server is doing surprisingly bad.

If any of you guys know a lot about server managing, please send me a private message here and let me know ;) But don't worry, I am talking to some other people, trying to get help... If I can't make it better, I will have have to bite the sour apple, upgrade the server and there for pay more than double per month, than I currently do. I am considering charging 1Eur, per month for access to the Nether :/ Please give me your oppinions on this... And try to look at it from my view, I'm paying for this server all by my self basically :P 

And thanks again to those who donated and check your emails so I can write the correct names here on the website :P

Also, if some of you have been trying to reach me on E-mail, I'm sorry I haven't responded, my internet is half broken at the moment... I am trying to fix it. 

Finally, I'm busy with my last examn this year, after next friday, I wil have a lot more time to manage and BE ON hte server :)

I have updated the server to 1.6.6

Posted by Mr_FJ on June 7, 2011 at 4:56 PM Comments comments (0)

Yep, even though not all plugins were updated, so if the server blows up... Well, it's to be expected. GOOD LUCK!

1.6 Patch notes... It will be released this week!

Posted by Mr_FJ on May 23, 2011 at 5:13 PM Comments comments (2)

Notch posted the changelog (so far) for 1.6:

A few of them caught my eye:

  • + Mushrooms now spreads (very) slowly - This was unexpected! I like it :D
  • * Seeds are now found in tall grass, using a hoe on the ground no longer works
  • * The record player now supports more than 15 different songs - Another unexpected addition! Sounds good!
  • * Fixed a system clock change messing up the game speed - I have used that bug a few times :3
  • * Fixed arrow physics, making them not get stuck midair when you open a door
  • * Fixed walking on top of fences not producing step sounds - YAY! This bothered me :P I wonder if it's also fixed for stairs...
  • * Fixed fences and wooden stairs not being flammable - Sounds like fun :)
  • * Fixed fishing rod rendering being a bit lacking - Interesting :O
  • * Fixed mining glass hiding the clouds behind the glass - That bothered me a lot :P
  • * Fixed items in glass blocks not getting ejected properly - Finally!
  • * Fixed fences and signs preventing grass from growing - Same as above.
  • * Fixed fullscreen mode switching causing mouse issues and screen closes - Same as above.
  • * Fixed rain falling too slowly
  • * Fixed creepers retaining charge level when they can’t see their target - I thought he'd never fix that.
  • * Fixed mushrooms spawning everywhere during nights - Hehe
  • * Fixed animals only spawning near light during the night - I thought that was meant to happen :/
  • * Fixed network packets being sent unbuffered, causing huge amounts of packets being sent - Sounds promising!
  • * Fixed mushroom soup not leaving a bowl in multiplayer
  • * Fixed arrows being animated really strangely in multiplayer
  • * Fixed fires being impossible to put out in multiplayer - Yay, though I kind of expected him to limit it to axes :)
  • * Fixed records not playing for other players in multiplayer - <3
  • * Fixed Ghast fireballs being invisible in SMP - Comming soon :)
And you probably all know about this one: 
  • * Fixed minecarts next to each other causing extreme velocities (sorry!)
I also sent Notch some feature requests ;) Take a look at them if you wish:
