Over the next couple of weeks, we will be switching to a new VPS host. The current host is phasing out VPS hosting, and their Dedicated Server prices are far too much to continue using their services. (Around 100 dollars a month)
We will try to keep the current worlds intact, however, the overworld may be too large to keep without running into corruption issues.
The City WILL be kept, so if you have a house you would like saved, let us know in the next week. We will try to copy it over to the City with WorldEdit1.
If we cannot save the main world, all /homes and inventories and such will be removed, and a secondary start kit coin will be made available to all who have successfully applied for Adventurer2.
The new host will be through OVH, at $20/month for:
8 GB RAM
40 GB SSD
We have opted for this version of their VPS to give you all a more stable experience. Currently, the server is only running on 3GB of RAM and, as such, experiences crashes and lag when there are more than 3-5 people on, or when someone is exploring new chunks too quickly. With the rate at which new members have been joining, it has been made quite apparent that the setup we have now is not at all acceptable. If we decide to bring Dynmap3 back, we have the option of adding 50GB more disk space. This would be an extra $10month.
Even with as low of a price as this is, we will need your help to keep the server running with these specifications. We have tried to keep this server and modpack as unique as possible, and we hope you value it enough to help us make sure it continues to function. If you are interested in donating, you can visit the donations page. We have tried to give a variety of options, as well as the option to give anonymously, for those who have requested it. If you have any suggestions for things you would like to purchase4, feel free to comment here or send a message to any of the staff5.
1 WorldEdit currently only works with certain modded blocks. Any house made of Carpenter's or Forestry blocks will not copy over with the correct data values. Carpenters blocks will be reset to basic blocks, upon copying, and all Forestry leaves/logs/planks will default to one specific tree's wood.
2 You must have had your application in by the time the server is fully switched to the new VPS.
3 Dynmap is a large, web-based, full-world minimap that members can log in to, chat through, and watch the progress of the server's worlds. If you would like to read about or see examples of Dynmap, follow this link.
4 Item suggestions must not be:
Such as full sets of end-game/high-tier armour
Something you do not have access to, as an Adventurer
Such as uncraftable blocks/items or commands that the higher ranks have
Commands that would cause something to happen in a way that it shouldn't
Such as spawning the Ender Dragon or Wither on worlds that they shouldn't be in
Related to affecting other players
Such as donating for another player or getting the donation commands to run with another player's name (This currently isn't possible, or it would be allowed.)

This module is a mandatory addition to the website: We are not able to remove it.
This is to add time to the websites "premium" option. Adding time to this sends money directly to Enjin which, while a VERY good cause - Enjin is a wonderful website, and deserves funding - it does not directly help the server.
