Already more than a month since I logged in? I thought it was only 2 weeks. I think I started digging tunnel to join the glass line with 2nd witch farm's portal in nether, or at least I logged out at the point where I intended to start digging it. :p


Last time I was playing for a moment I thought there will be more people, as there were 3 at the same time, but all the next week and a few days I was all alone when I finished building the 2nd witch farm.

It's certainly possible the timespan was inaccurate. As all the great server administrators say...the logs show nothing!

Has the server been taken down? The dynmap is timing out and I can't connect to it, either.

What, people actually still care about it? :lol:

I've poked it with a stick, server should be back up now.

I have emmigrated to Space Engineers, if I could say so, since the game hardly works on my PC since some months

So, this era seems to be over. But is the world somewhere available, so we can at least conserve to imense amount of work that flowed into those impressive architectural artworks?

The server only needs some poking or kicking again, and then of course you'll need to connect with it with 1.7.10 client.

I would like to import the finished structures of the sky city if possible, I really didn't have time for the industry and tenacity needed for the finishing of those few structures, at least people can enjoy those works online this way.

Confirmed; possibly a poke AND a kick this time.

That said, if people would just prefer the world(s) to be posted online so they can download and peruse at their leisure, I can do that too.

Currently working on bringing the server back up, should be up within the hour.

Also just realized that CraftBukkit is still down from that stupid DMCA request nearly a year ago? Le sigh.

Server's back up, but not sure how long it'll stay up. The machine seems to be having issues with the power supply.

Backups are safe regardless; I'll be uploading the entirety of the last backup somewhere for people to download some time tomorrow.

Ugh. In that case, how about this:

http://1drv.ms/1P4vkGa

That's a zip file containing the last backup (from June), including the "orbiterworld", "super-survival world", "resource world", and their associated nethers/ends. Should be fairly trivial for someone who knows what they're doing to drop the worlds into their own server or singleplayer instance and browse around, or extract things for their own usage in another world.

Let me know if there are any issues.

The novelty has indeed kind of worn off, particularly with all the other games around now that are in the same "sandbox survival" genre, often with better graphics.

Almost 4 years later...



In a bout of nostalgia i've been yanking chunks out of the server's backup and converting them into modern Minecraft's format.

I've made a couple of maps, at one pixel per block.
The overworld, 22Mb - http://orbides.org/img/ofms_map_over.png

A slice of the nether, 0.4 Mb. It's very 3D, so this does not tell much - http://orbides.org/img/ofms_map_nether.png

Someone left a message in front of Delta Crateris, almost as if expecting that to happen. :/

This prompted me to yank out the Watchtower and check the headlines:




The offer of gold for dirt is no longer valid - the Gold Pillar stopped working in modern versions, as spawn mechanics changed.


There is so much stuff in there, scattered all over the place.
Yanked an island at random, and there is a port and a house with a moat of fire.


Another mansion, vaguely familiar.


A shuttle hangar in the desert, naturally. :/


No idea where else to look.
Initially i just wanted to export my own builds, but now i wonder if there is anything worthwhile to be done with all that time and effort people placed into this game.

Found the little area that I was working in on the map. :thumbup:

Good times.

Wow. That is so weird. Out of the blue, for no reason, I was just thinking about this server over the weekend. Remembering some of the underground mines I'd found while exploring in, I think, the southwest part of the map, and working on building a railway in the Nether to connect it all to the main settlement.

Just amazing to me that you picked within a few days of me having that though to post this.


**Edit** Any chance you could post the backup, Artlav? Hielor's old link doesn't seem to be functional any longer.

Thanks,
2VU

Neat.







Looks like that all ended before I ever started playing Minecraft...
Well, it's an 8 year old game and it's days of popularity were back in 2012-2014.

Not any time soon - it's a multi-Gb file and i'm on mobile till the end of the week at least.

Not even sure i can host a file that large, so i'll have to figure out Dropbox or something.

Nope. I only seem to have the world before that one.
