The flatcore server is now shut down. It was a great, fun, and challenging experience making the game, but it's time to move on for a few reasons. As you already know, our network runs on several servers hosted in a data center, which are the actual servers you connect to. Flatcore was our latest addition and required a powerful server to host it. It was set up on an additional machine with an additional expense. We've left the server running for quite a while and the incoming donations can't keep up with it's needs.
A lot of your donations went to the development of the game and it's further production. When it came out, we expected the server to fund itself from it's own donations. We've tried monthly memberships, cheaper deals, and permanent ranks. None of which have had much success. In order to save some expenses, it's sad to say, but the flatcore server is now closed.
This is a very unusual and important announcement concerning the entire network. Recently, I've updated all of our servers to the newer and stable spigot version for our benefit. BungeeCord and Spigot have been updated and a few settings have been changed. In our previous version, all the players were connected through a proxy and their ID was masked by the proxy they are connected to. Because all of the players were connected to the one proxy, all of them got a special UUID that's not native. We're trying to restore the original NATIVE UUIDs of players by forwarding player's IPs and stopping the proxy from masking the player.
Once the setting is applied, each player will be assigned a NEW UUID. This tremendously conflicts with the server's current state. Everything saved to that player, such as their inventory will be RESET because the server will no longer read that user with their OLD UUID.
It's all very complicated to imagine, but I'll explain WHY...
The kitpvp server has been reset and updated. Numerous things have been tweaked and reset. Everyone's balance, chest, enderchest, inventory, and experience points have been reset. In this new update, we bring a whole new taste to the server. Our new map features a custom built city; SlabCity that is meant to bring more fun in exploring and flying through the map. I'm proud to say that it's our best map yet.
Here's an overview of SlabCity. The inner buildings are accessible and can be entered. Surrounding buildings serve as a border. You may also climb/fly up to the very top of the crane for the highest view.
We have a special VIP+ plaza dedicated to our higher donors. It features a prestige royal experience in the city. It's found on the other side of the map from spawn.
I'm not a donor and don't have flying capabilities? No worries! We've added very fun and strategic parkour on top of...
Hello ladies and gentlemen! BeastlyJman here with some SICK updates on flatcore.
Alright so lets be honest for a moment, there were LOTS of bugs on flatcore. Like a lot.
Well first off, that amount of bugs makes you know that it is original!
Secondly, I have tiredlessly been squashing them the last couple weeks and now I think i have a version.
Some Fixed Bugs:
Terminus/Ether time is fixed (If you guys break it again I'll cry).
Bringing back ether bridge
Terminus mobs causing a ton of lag
Some stats weren't recording correctly
People in afk machines earning blocks/rewards (boom mo fo's)
Now those are just some of the MANY bugs. Now lets get on to the fun stuff.
METEORS and Meteor Showers!
Meteors can fall individually or in a shower! You will be warned when a meteor shower will occur but they only come at night!
I'm VERY excited to announce that we now have a stable version of Flatcore ready to be released. It's all very good and exciting news, but there's more. Flatcore will have famous youtube stars LittleLizardGaming play and record a youtube series for their channel. We hope it brings a lot more attraction and attention to the server.
The server will be opening when the youtubers are ready record. We want the server opened to be fresh and clean for the series. The server will be opening later tonight (EST) or tomorrow morning as a guarantee!
Meanwhile, there's a few things you can do in anticipation for Flatcore. Make sure you watch the NEW flatcore tutorial video with all of its recent updates included. Flatcore ranks are open and can be PRE-ORDERED. Be sure to watch the ranks tutorial video for a sneak peak of how they work!
As you all know, I've long promised a new gamemodeto the server. The new game mode is called Flatcore. It's a hardcore survival gamemode. In short, Flatcore is a really intensive and fun challenge. I'd like to think of it as a pretty mature game. I do realize it won't be everyone's favorite, but it's something new and exciting to the Slabcraft community.
Flatcore's expected release is in a week or so. (Shooting for next weekend)
Currently, we're fixing up any bugs and glitches and getting it ready for the public grand opening.
In the meantime, check out the video explaining the new server. It's a really fun game I'm really excited for!
As you may have noticed, there's been some exciting stuff going on on SlabCraft!
NEW HUBS: The first thing you may have noticed is the totally awesome new hub. The new hub is fantastic looking, and will serve as the main spawn area for (we hope) quite some time. You can walk through the large portals to warp to the two mini-hubs; Mini-Games and Core-Games. We have also removed the compass, and instead, filled the hotbar with fancy warp items. Right click while holding them to warp!
FLATCORE SERVER:You may also have heard about the new core game, Flatcore that is due to be released super soon. Flatcore is a custom, semi-hardcore survival game mode, with fancy terrain generation, and 3 unique dimensions...
We're currently experiencing server down time due to heavy traffic send from a DDOSER who has no life. If you don't know what 'DDOSing' is then I'll inform you. Basically in simple language, a 'someone' uses bots (multiple computers) linked together to send heavy traffic to our server IP. Once they do, the server can only go so high up in traffic until it shuts down. In our case we have a security system that will suck all the bad traffic out, and accept normal traffic. That is when the traffic is at a lower rate. Once an attack officially stops, all server speeds will resume and be online.
Finally, the DDOSER is J3RBEAR. Make note NEVER to add such person on Skype, email, or anywhere else. You've all been warned, keep your eyes open of such terrible people.
And finally some of you may ask why they do it?
Seriously, for no reason? Boredom, jealously, envy.... But in our case, the kid has no good life to begin with. He has no notable...
