Quick update on how things are going.

August 19, 2014 in Server News by Dave

So, I’ve been a bit pre-occupied lately, one of my best friends slowly became paralyzed over the last month, and I have been busy taking care of him.   Watching him slowly deteriorate and be in pain the whole time has been excruciating.

Money is tight and we couldn’t get him the surgery he needed on his back and now he is officially paralyzed for life.  Needless to say when something like this happens Minecraft has been pretty far from my mind, especially with the EULA Mojang debacle hanging over the server.

The dog being injured isn’t the only thing I’ve had going on, but I’ll spare you the details.  I’m going to fix a few  things on the server tonight and will peck away at it as I can.

Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of spare time since taking care of him takes a lot more time now that he can’t use the bathroom on his own and takes me helping him or cleaning him up afterwards.

I hope the last month has gone better for you than it has for me.

Transitional Bugs and Glitches

August 13, 2014 in Server News by Skykia

Hello all. You may have noticed that some aspects of gameplay on the server are currently not working or completely disabled. Never fear, your staff is on the job and continuing to work toward solutions for all of the current problems. This is a new system with a new set of unexpected bugs so bear with us as we muddle our way through! A few of the current projects include:

  • Enabling Minigames in the Hub – they can be played in the Towny Spawn (funland) for now
  • Reopening the Server Shop in the Towny world – Until then, please vote to keep money in your pockets (and town bank)
  • Enabling general chat for everyone – We are aware that some people can talk in general chat and some cannot. No worries, the solution will be found!

There are many many other issues to be solved, some obvious and some quite subtle. Upgrading any server, especially one that offers as much content as Firefly, is never an easy or simple process. I want to extend a special thank you to all of our loyal members who have made Firefly so great and continue to support our server and community as we transition in to the current  minecraft version and our new and improved content! :)

Major server update! NEW CONNECTION ADDRESS!

July 31, 2014 in Server News by Dave

Howdy!

So I’m in the process of making some pretty extensive changes to the server.  I’m not done yet and I have to leave for a day or two.  I don’t want you all to be without a server to play on so I’m opening up the server to everyone as it is.

There are LOADS of issues and bugs still unresolved, but I’m working to fix them.

Most donator perks have been removed but will be replaced later.  It’s time consuming to set everything up and I’m busy for most of the weekend.

You can connect to the server here… 198.144.183.116:25565

This address might change in the future so be sure to bookmark this website so you don’t lose our server address.

The Rumor Mill MC

July 14, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

Word on the street is the server is resetting. Well, if it is, I haven’t been told. However, many of you are aware of the big scary EULA fiasco. So, what I can say, is “changes are coming”. Anything more, and people would be sent to kill me. We are doing everything we can to keep everything we can, I promise you that. I, nor anyone who might be aware, can go spilling the details, but the server is essentially getting an upgrade. From one day to the next, plans change, so there’s no sense in detailing it now. We’ll let you know when we know. Stay tuned!

Expanded Rules!

June 15, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

By popular demand and necessity, we finally have a published list of expanded rules. These rules, while existing for some time, have merely been spoken amongst the mods. This is everything I could think of, and things will be added as needed. This list is not exhaustive, and as it warns, it does not guarantee you safety from some future infraction not listed. You can still get in trouble, and no you aren’t a lawyer. So bear that in mind. As always, staff will remain objective and fair. So, without further ado, here are your rules!

Recent “update” Notice

June 9, 2014 in Server News by O157_H7

Dearest firefly users, this evening we attempted to address the recent lag issues. While it would appear we have improved the situation thus far, there were unforeseen consequences that Dave was unable to revert. Because of this, your player inventories and enderchests are likely reset. You may spawn in the original quiz area, or at wild spawn. In any case, there is a special sign at the quiz and wild spawn that will give you firefly points as a consolation. We are unable to replace lost items due to being unable to track them (you could just make it up and we wouldn’t be the wiser). We are terribly sorry for any loss. Hopefully this will resolve any further issues and make the server more stable, ultimately leading to more enjoyable gameplay.

Thank you for your patience and continued loyalty.
