Hey Toasters!

It has been an eventful week in terms of server migration to a new data centre. This move has taken up most of our time, and so as a result not much in server optimisation was able to be done the last week. However, this next week should see a lot of issues fixed!

In regards to the server migration, while we did make a discord announcement, let me repeat the point here; this switch to a new data centre, while does include a lot better hardware that can help with server performance, the main reason for changing was to fix the issues we had with connectivity and packet loss. New Hardware will likely not fix or even impact the current TPS issues due to the nature of the problem, that being poorly coded mods/lack of optimisation of mods/memory leaks, etc.

Anywho, to the changelog:

All Servers:
  • Cleaned out MySQL databases and tables
  • Switched everything over to new dedicated machines
  • Fixed ServerStatistics on 1.7
  • Cleaned up Titan server
  • Cleaned up Hydra server
Beyond:
  • Coin of Fortune Banned
  • Banned 'Portable Overflow Nullifier' for duping capabilities
  • Slightly altered kits on Beyond to give XNet items rather than Ender IO conduits due to XNet being more server-friendly
  • 10 min anti afk warnings no longer show up in Discord - only the ones where user gets kicked
  • Added message to recommend people to switch their Conduits out for XNet systems (better for TPS) (Beyond)
  • Dimensional Transceivers on SF3 and Beyond have had their power transfer rates changed to 16,000,000 RF/t to limit the need for long conduit setups. Also has an upkeep rate of 25 RF/t
  • Banned industrial TNT from beyond
  • Code:
    # Set to false to prevent the bows explosion effect breaking blocks
        B:bowBlockDamage=false
  • Disabled /market plugin temporarily while we iron issues out
Sky Factory 3:
  • 10 min anti...
Hello Toasters!

Good news everyone!
Starting now, we will making another switch to a new datacenter and a new physical location. We will be getting way - way better hardware and connection issues regarding packet loss should finally be solved fully! (No more ping spikes in-game)
Maintenance will start now.
Downtime will be 1-2 hours.

For the people who are interested in knowing, new hardware will be as following:
# Enterprise 1:
Xeon E3-1270v6 4c/8t - 4.2 GHz
32GB DDR4 ECC 2400 MHz
SoftRaid 2x480GB NVMe
500 Mbps dedicated bandwidth
SpeedTest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/6219603048.png

# Game 1:
i7 7700K OC 4c/8t - 5.00 GHz
64GB DDR4 2400 MHz
SoftRaid 2x450GB NVMe
250 Mbps dedicated bandwidth
SpeedTest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/6234908964.png

# Game 2:
i7 7700K OC 4c/8t - 5.00 GHz
64GB DDR4 2400 MHz
SoftRaid 2x450GB NVMe
250 Mbps dedicated bandwidth
SpeedTest: http://www.speedtest.net/result/6234910378.png

I will keep you all posted via forums, facebook, twitter and via this discord of course.

All servers should be back up and running! We are now running on the newest hardware and on a sweet new connection / setup.
Small note for 1.10 servers: Market plugin has been temporarily disabled until we resolve issues with it.

The website will be migrated on a later date (some features on it like Punishments currently won't work)
Would like to give a major shoutout to JWTech from our friends at TastyNode. Without him we would not be here with this fancy new hardware. He's stayed up all night to make sure we are up and running.
Hey Toasters!

Busy week once again, with a lot of hierarchy changes in terms of the addition of the Senior Moderator rank, as well as with diagnosing and fixing TPS fluctuations. In terms of the new staff rank, let me quickly describe its purpose before starting on change log:

As some of you may know, we have staff members allocated to moderate different servers, opposed to moderators moderating all servers. As a result, Senior Moderators are members of staff with extensive moderating experience, who act almost as the "Head" of the Moderator team for a specific server. We have four Senior Moderators allocated each to different servers, with:
  • PrincesStrawb : Tekkit Legends
  • Kruger07 : FTB: Beyond and FTB: Infinity Evolved
  • Strikefire & Langerz69 : Sky Factory 3
The role of Senior Moderators is as follows:
  • Help the Administration team review applications for staff for their respective server
  • Manage the staff under their wing on their allocated server and make sure they're doing their jobs
  • Decide the outcomes for Ban Appeals on their respective servers
  • Act essentially as "representatives" for the server they are allocated to
In all other respects, Senior Moderators are still Moderators, just with a bit more responsibility and authority.

Anyway, with that out of the way, the changelog:

Beyond:
  • Made the following changes to WOOT dragon loot:
Code:
WOOT Dragon loot - FTB BEYOND

Basic Setup: Dragon Egg 1 - 20% drop rate   --> Basic Setup: Dragon Egg 1 - 5% drop rate
