Final Matinence

Everything (the site and the server) will be up tomorrow morning.

Thursday, July 7, 2011


Ok. Going to stop the server tonight or tomorrow to import citys and fix server stability. For now, decreasing the world border is set to 750. Because im regenerating some parts of the map.


You can connect now.
Connect at mcserver1337.servegame.com:1337

Register at minecraft.sfxworks.net

The server is FINALLY UP ZOMG

Register at minecraft.sfxworks.net

Join at mcserver1337.servegame.com:1337

DO NOT use the anti-lag feature. You wont need it anyway :)


- Update: Authentication fixed. It is now synced properly.

ADDITIONAL NOTES PLEASE READ: Please use /SETHOME to set your home. You cannot use /home or /spawn. However, when you die, you will spawn at your home. Another thing about death. You have 3 lives. Not really lives. Rather, insurance. When you die, you will spawn at your home WITH your items. If you run out of lives, you will still spawn at your home, but your items will be gone. Tomorrow, ill configure it so that you can buy and "find" more lives.

If you have the same IP address as the name you registered with, you WONT have to /login to the server. However, this is only temporary.

PS: I worked all week on this server. Donations are appreciated (but pats on the back work too).

Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Gettin real close!

All I gotta do now is add the plugins in and we are good to go!

One thing though, skyworld, underworld, and the ocean inst complete yet. However, will carve the oceans in tomorrow :).

Another thing, 1 city will be imported tomorrow too.

Registration issues fixed.

However, you have to re-register :(. Had to reset the db and redo a few scripts. Sorry about that.

As a compensation, I added a "redeem" code. Be sure to check your email for instructions!
PS: Emails currently aren't instant. Please wait ~10 minutes before you receive an email.



Thank kohjix for helping me test everything. http://minecraft.sfxworks.net/

Tuesday, July 5, 2011

I didn't think it was possible...

I literally headdesked my desk. It ended with me sleeping. My head hurts a little, but im gonna continue to work on the site now. Sorry about the delay.

Oh, that and flash kept crashing on me multiple times. Ended up having to re-install windows 7. Dont worry though. Like I said, nothing ever gets deleted on the server. The world folder is still here.

Sunday, July 3, 2011

Heres what I'll do

The server will be launched tomorrow as planned. However, only one city (ironcity) will be active. The border will be set roughly around 2500 meters. (Thats plenty)

As soon as I finish the site (which will be tonight. I will definitely go for tonight) Ill activate the new authentication server and everything will be good to go.

FYI: All work here will be transferred.

Quality over Speed

Lets see...where to start.

I have been running into some minor scripting issues with the website.
The guy who was making the client side ui (Storm Burpee) hasn't responded for 5 days.
Codename_b and R-T-B are hard at work but wont be done by monday.

Quality over speed. Patience. I am doing my best to make this the best server out there. I will have updates for you tomorrow.

PS: Im going to go ahead and learn java to speed things up after I finish the website. Its relatively similar to a language I already know so I should understand it within a day.

PSS: ...Looking for someone who actually wants to help without wasting time. Email me at sfxworks@gmail.com

Prepping for 1.7

Expect the site to be live on thursday at minecraft.sfxworks.net.
Expect the client side mod to be done by friday.
Expect the simple installer do be done by friday.
Expect the forums to be live on saturday at minecraft.sfxworks.net.
Expect the minecraft server to be live on monday at mcserver.sfxworks.net

UI Design preview

Designed it myself :P

Currently being coded by Storm Burpee! Wish him luck!


Too real? :P

Just rented a web server for the site. Its sfxworks.net (however, it will be minecraft.sfxworks.net in the near future).

Storm Burpee says he can get the ui and chat channels done in a day. Also, it will work on low-performance computers. Think of it as a new client-side redesign vs a client-side addon (Basically, starting from scratch vs adding to whats already there).

Kohjix is doing some cool backgrounds for the website.

I am finishing up the design for the UI.

If all goes well, we should have everything finished in 24 hours.

Oh...wait...the map generation..

Currently, I am working with the author of phoenixterrainmod along with a few other plugin developers.

This drawing (Yes its bad. I drew it in a rush) should explain how the server will work.

Its composed of 3 worlds for 3 times the fun! (...I guess I say corny stuff when im tired....and say corny which I havn't said in years)

In any case, this SHOULD be my last all-nighter. Ill keep you guys posted!

PS : I am aware of 1.7 on Thursday. Everything should work just fine. We were the first server to have 1.6 with bukkit and we can do it again with 1.7!

Monday, June 27, 2011

Why do people do this?

This sets us back even more... Why did Galaxy do this?

Looking for someone to make the client side UI again.


Its instant. I modded it so that it automatically adds you when you register on the website (which is close to done). Please stop messaging me about it.

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Edit: I will happily pay for you service. (Nothing big though. Around 10-40$)

oh boy. no cable

Power didn't go out (yet) but the local cable station just lost power. Could be fixed in a few minutes, could be in a few days. I guess nows a good time to do some matinence anyway. Ill keep you posted.

Banned. Banned. Banned. HAHAHAHA

Grievers are so easy to deal with using the tech I have. Honestly, if your a griever, don't even try. You're just waisting your time. Its literally an easy 2 seconds of investigation and 5 seconds to undo all of your actions in the world.

On a side note, I am scheduling maintenance for Thursday. It will be a short 3 hour period of fixing a few mods and cleaning up the mess players who join and leave make. During that time i'll wire in the website into the server. When thats done it will be perfectly up and running.

Last thing. Im almost done with the rail line. All I have to do is fix up Iron City and help Vandigo (if she needs it) finish the bridge that crosses the lake.

Heres a sneak peak at the last mini-bridge you cross before entering Iron City

Since the banner is still down, ill continue to post the server's address at the bottom of each post.

So heres the deal...

Ok guys I know I said that it would be up today around 12...some unexpected errors came up. I need to render the map to see it before I place the cities again. I started it at 11 with just the base zoom level. Well...I ran out of disk space and it crashed. So Im going to have to restart it.

Make no doubt. If all goes well, the server should be fully functional at 12 noon tomorrow. Sorry to let you guys down about that.
