The entire network sans the website will be down for maintenance in a few minutes. This is scheduled, planned, and sorta well thought out. I am doing some network stuff with the thingy majig so don't worry, you're in good hands!
I'm hoping that I'll be in bed sleeping in about an hour (starting maintenance at midnight for me) so I don't want to keep you guys off the server for too long
Follow me on Twitter to keep updated on what's going on. I'll be tweeting updates when each individual server comes up or if I run into any issues because Murphy's law isn't a thing ;D
@CollinPotato and I are in the hotel lobby working on updating all servers to full 1.7.8. Doing so requires migrating all player files to the new UUID system which can take quite some time and only happens the *first* time a server starts up on 1.7.8. Please be patient with us as we migrate one server at a time. If a server is down, it's probably being migrated.
If a server is up then it either is on a protocol hack to allow 1.7.8 players to connect or it is actually updated.
I've been working on a project with a friend called Minecast (www.minecast.io) that allows you to tweet in game on servers that you trust.
How it works
You sign up on www.minecast.io. It'll ask you for permission for our app to access your twitter account to post tweets. Don't worry, this is safe an we have abuse systems set up. Once you do that, you'll be asked to verify Minetime as a trusted server when you join the lobby. It'll give you a link to go to where it asks for confirmation one more time. Once you do that, you can tweet in game from the lobby!
You can tweet with /tweet <tweet goes here> - on the lobby. It'll then ask you to confirm by typing /yes.
When you join the server, it'll show you something like this
I am happy to finally announce the release of our new Survival Games written by yours truly <3
We've been working on this game on and off for awhile and we're finally ready to release it. We're still considering this a public beta as there are probably still some bugs and spectate has yet to be implemented.
There are some awesome features that I added including:
It's been a few days since I made that post asking for feedback and I'm here to tell you that we've been hard at work making things happen. We've redone the factions server, fixed some crucial deadlife bugs, and gotten a youtuber!
@ghostgamingyt will be streaming and recording on Minetime a lot now including a stream of the Factions reset! He's a super chill guy and a good friend of mine. You should definitely subscribe to him on youtube and twitch, and follow him on twitter.
Like I said in my change log post, voting rewards and level saving are both fixed. You'll be happy to see that you have your level from around a month ago. There won't be any issues with level saving in the future now.
Factions is the first server to have our new Punisher...
