After yesterday’s snafu and due to the extreme popularity I have decided to activate a test server for World of Dragons.
The pack from this day forth will be released on Monday as an alpha so that it will not readily appear in the Twitch App unless you have changed the release status of the pack to alpha. The world size of the test server will be limited to 10k blocks and slot limit to 10. FTB Utilities for the test server only, the claiming part will be disabled to include also the reboot cycle.
Further everyone will have creative mode not operator. This way everything can be pulled in and tested. This will allow us to find things that need to blacklisted or removed from the recipe pool, mods that should be pulled entirely because they are inoperable etc.
This setup for the test server will allow the player to test the new upcoming features but allow everyone to find things that will crash the server. If the release lasts till Friday of that week, I’ll change it from Alpha to Release.
The additional layer of development should go a long way in preventing the hell that happened yesterday.
These are my initial thoughts on this and none of it is set in stone and is to be treated as new tree seed that has just been planted into the soil. It’s branches and leaves can go places in ways unforeseen.
What kind of God can’t make a back pack? or, mass mine stuff?!!
If you can’t donate at https://patreon.com/kreezxil or rent a server at https://www.kreezcraft.com/25-off-at-bisect-hosting/ then considering buying some merch to show off your love for that pack at https://www.zazzle.com/kreezcraft/products
We’re upside down in the donations for the last cycle, at least $40 in donations have ceased to exist and this just right after aquiring the 12 core 64 GB i7 for the Midwest Server.
I need everyone that has donated to help encourage those who have not contributed to either donate at https://patreon.com/kreezxil or rent a server from https://www.kreezcraft.com/25-off-at-bisect-hosting/ or even buy some merchandise in support of my efforts at https://www.zazzle.com/kreezcraft/products
That’s right you can buy a t-shirt, cap, hoodie, golf ball, mug, you name it with the World of Dragons logo on it. Proudly display it in your office, at home, at school, in public and then tell everyone who asks about it about the wonderful adventures you’ve been having in it.
I used the Featured Servers mod to indicate the version of the whitelisted server since the server admin has been failing to update the MOTD in the server.properties file. Therefore there will be multiple instance of the server entry in the multiplayer tab. Simply delete the old entry to be in compliance and to appease your mind.
Initial Release of the God Block a pack about a mod called The God Block.
You appear in a void world where a light haze has just been introduced. By harvesting the nothingness around you quanta is formed. You will then craft the quanta together with itself to form the base forms of matter for your world. From the emerging world you will be able to create higher more advanced forms of matter that will you to do ever more amazing things. Eventually you will gain the power of dimensional travel and the ability to even recreate the god block.
Patreon says that 63% of the pledges have been processed for March. If 63% is that tiny green column then we have a huge problem. Or rather my community has a huge problem.
My loyalty first and foremost are to the players that are leasing directly from me. Then those are donating to me for the continuance of servers. If there is not enough to keep everything flowing then something will go let go or I have to go back to running my servers on low end VPS systems again. Meaning no more 20 players and back to a mere 5 at best.
As it stands, the EU server is provided by Bisect Hosting as a sponsorship for World of Dragons, therefore it’s not in danger.
After carefully reviewing the donations, I have only a $2 donation from the EU people. The rest of the funding is for the USA server. That means in order to keep the WOD server up and running at 20 people max log on, I need to move the my EU sponsorship server to the USA and let the EU WORLD go.
I’d rather not have to do this and it would be great if the EU players would donate. Do your part for socialism and donate. Encourage all your EU friends to donate too. The server doesn’t receive money from your Governments therefore it needs that soda/snack money from your wallets and purses to keep going.
I also don’t want to let the USA server to go either, it’s a great a server, we have nearly 3 weeks left on it.
Lot’s of decisions to be made here.
I’ll subsidize with my CURSEFORGE rewards where possible, but as it stands I’m upside down.
