This is a bit early, isn't it? However, this will be a major change that I need to plan for, so I'm announcing the time block now. The server will be upgraded on December 30, 2021 at 5:00 AM UTC. This will be a complete replacement, so plan on things being down for about 2 hours. Why? Well, we're currently using Windows Server 2012 to host the server. Maintenance on that operating system ended three years ago. Windows Server 2019 is available, and it's at no additional cost to me. So we're going to have to completely replace the server. Don't worry, the files are safe and backed up. As always, if you have any questions, feel free to ping me!
Hello! We are overdue for Au70 Galaxy server maintenance. As such, be aware that we will be conducting maintenance on April 8, 0300 UTC (convert to your time zone). I expect the server will be down for up to an hour, although it may be longer.
So beginning over the weekend, our forums got hit with a pretty big spam wave. I've done as much cleanup as I can. In order to prevent further damage, registrations for the forums are currently closed. Reach out to one of the owners on IRC or Discord if you want an account.
Hi, guys. Sorry it took so long for me to update this post. My computer decided it didn't want to work, so didn't have much of a chance to log into the forums. Thanks to Allisss, I will not have to shut down the server for a while. There will probably be a brief period of maintenance but that will be announced separately. Thank you to everyone for the well wishes and concerns. I'm currently in the final stages of hiring for two separate jobs, I'm hoping one of those pan out.
Well, this is a forum post I didn't want to make... A little backstory, I've actually been unemployed for about 6 months. Because I love Au70 Galaxy, I've been paying for server hosting out of my dwindling savings account while I hunt for a job. Unfortunately, I am no longer in a position to do that. Therefore, I'm saddened to announce that Au70 Galaxy (and by extension, Au70 Nebula) will be put on hold at the end of the month. What does that mean? It means I will be temporarily shutting down the server that's hosing both Galaxy and Nebula. No data will be lost. When my situation improves, I will restore the server to the exact same state as it was before. Again, this is temporary and no data will be lost. If you have any questions, feel free to reply here.
So, I've spent a ton of time offline working through server configuration for Au70 Andromeda, and a while ago I figured out I accidentally created a fully functional Survival Multiplayer Server... so I grabbed a copy of the plugins and built Au70 Nebula. Au70 Nebula is ready for rough beta testing. It is currently configured in a whitelist-only and runs on the same virtual machine as Au70 Galaxy. If you would like to help me test and refine the server, reply to this topic. Eligible people will hold at least ProBuilder on Au70 Galaxy and own Minecraft (I haven't been able to configure it for cracked clients yet). As for Au70 Andromeda, I'm still in progress. It's a venerable soup of plugins right now, and I've been chasing some very weird interactions...
