Quick Update on Creative’s State

Posted on June 15, 2019 by zZer0_

So with Creative crashing often due to plots that may not have updated correctly from the transition from 1.13 to 1.14, we are planning to roll back the Creative server to 1.13 and try the update again. Creative will be down during this period of time and will be back once Clowner has the time to deal with the situation.

Just a fair warning, since we will be rolling it back some progress you may have made may be lost, but we will try our best to keep any builds that have been made since the update.

We cannot give an ETA for the fix, but we can hope that updating it again will fix the issues that have been caused.

Server Update 5 Jun 2019

Posted on June 5, 2019 by TheClowner

Hey all, a few quick updates today:

  • /rtp should no longer teleport you into the ground. It will also cause less lag.
  • Chunks should unload a little faster than previously, but there is still a difference from 1.13.2. There should be some less lag because of this.
  • Chat should work again on the hub.

As always, if anything doesn’t work please make sure you report it to our staff, or on our discord/forums.

Good news!

PureSurvival is now back up and running on 1.14.2, with it’s fresh worlds and a, hopefully, more vanilla feel.

We’ve also opened up /examples – so you can see some example builds for Stone, Bronze and Diamond (Equivalent to Worker) ranks on survival!

Theres also a bunch of little things we’ve fixed here and there, as always, if you notice anything wrong please make sure to let us know!

Server Back Up in Next Hour!

Posted on May 28, 2019 by zZer0_

We’ve been hard at work on making everything work and we are starting back up within the next hour with the new Hub, Survival, Snipertown and possibly Creative! We have also remade the spawn shop, so take a look through there and see what you can find!

There may be some things that do not fully work, and as such, if there are any issues please contact us on the discord or on the forums.

Thanks all for staying patient, not long to go now!

Another Extended Maintenance.. :(

Posted on May 27, 2019 by zZer0_

Don’t be grumpy, but…

We working on updating the server are human too, and as such, some of us need sleep from a long day of working on making everything work. Basically everything has taken a lot longer than expected; staff members have been on and off, certain things still need setting up, some plugins need a quick fix… So stay patient, and maybe build some neat stuff to post on in the showcase channel of discord for everyone to admire during the downtime.

We have no definite ETA, so for now all we can tell you is, “it will be ready when it’s ready”. There will be another announcement when we are nearing the end of the updating process.

Extended Maintenance

Posted on by zZer0_

Due to some unforeseen delay, particularly in backing up before we started the maintenance, it’s taking us longer to prepare than anticipated.

We will get everything online as soon as possible, but we will make sure everything is to a working state before that happens.

Stay patient, it’s coming 😀

‘Advanced’ Warning: Network Downtime Monday 27th May

Posted on May 25, 2019 by TheClowner

Hi All,

ClownerCraft will go down for maintenance this coming Monday, from 10am BST until around 6pm BST.

We will hopefully be done a lot sooner.

This downtime is to allow us to update most of the network to 1.14, as a reminder of some things:

Survival:
Explore, the Nether and the End will all be reset.
The main building worlds (Vanilla and Custom) will remain as they are.
The server shop interior is being replaced, and new items will be available to buy and sell.

PureSurvival:
PureSurvival is having a full world reset. The old world will be available to download after the downtime.
The new PureSurvival will be reconfigured so it’s more vanilla than what we have currently. VIP perks will remain, but other features will no longer be available on PS.

Creative will have no world resets, and remain as it is.

Our new Hub server will finally launch. Get ready to explore our nice new hub… see what secrets you can find!

As always, some VIP perks, and other features may not be available for a while after the update, and naturally – if anything doesn’t work how it should please make sure to let us know so we can get that sorted!

Sorry for the inconvenience, but we hope to see you on the other side in the new update!
~Clowner & Team


MC 1.14.1 Protocol Support

Posted on May 13, 2019 by TheClowner

Hi All,

I am pleased to announce that you can now join ClownerCraft with any version of Minecraft from 1.13.2 to 1.14.1, the network still runs off 1.13.2, so theres none of the new features ingame yet.

We’re still going through and checking how much is working with the new update so far, and once things are more stable we hope to update the entire network. This will likely be a staggered process, so updating survival, creative and PureSurvival (along with launching new hub, gladiator and everything else) may happen at different times. We will be publishing more details about when things will update once we’re settled on the dates/times. It’s looking likely that we could update in the next 2-3 weeks, but that could very well change…

Just a quick side note though – as many people know I’ve been studying at uni for the past few years, and I’m now at the point where I’m a week from the deadline for my dissertation, so I will be even more elusive for the remainder of this week. I’d like to thank you all for your patience – and we will update to 1.14 as soon as we can – just sadly I have to put passing my degree ahead of ClownerCraft for a short while 🙂

Suggestions & Concerns – What would you like to see more of on the server?

Posted on May 1, 2019 by zZer0_

Hey again everyone,

So with the new Community Manager role it’s our job to talk to the community and get you guys to be more interactive with what we do on the Staff Team. Having said that, we are always open to suggestions for what we can make better on the server, be it ideas for mini-games, contests or just something that might make building a little more exciting – We want to hear everything you guys have in terms of ideas so that we can make the server a more interesting and overall better place for the players.

Please note that some ideas may get rejected, however this will not be because we simply hate the idea, but it may pose some issues to other plugins or the server in general, or overall may not be possible for us to do – So don’t take it personally if your idea gets rejected!

What we would love to start seeing is some activity on the forums. Now, people may not want to make forum accounts or just simply prefer to give suggestions in chat, but they may not be noted down, whereas we can keep track of every idea in This Thread so that no suggestions are lost and therefore making it an easier way to communicate with staff. There are many advantages to making a forum account other than applications or ban appeals, so please keep this in mind – It’s a very good way for the players and the Staff Team to communicate outside of the server chat.

Once again as in the last post, I will mention that myself and Guinner are now Community Managers, so don’t be afraid to talk to us and give us suggestions and concerns; it’s now our role to make the server a more fun and interactive place for everybody.

Cheers!
