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!

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.

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