Well, not so good news, guys.

I’m not going to go into the details, but because of living arrangements for the time being, I’m not going to be able to have the servers running right now. It’s not that I’m having any kind of crisis, but as a college student in a position of varying living arrangements, multiple servers are not an easy thing to keep maintained for long periods of time.

WHAT THIS MEANS:
As of now the servers are offline and I have no ETA of when I will be able to put them back up and have them stay up. It could literally be anywhere from a month to a year or more from now, so just consider them totally offline.

I have the world file from the SMP server available for download, so you can download it and play on it single player if you would like. You will need WinRAR or another extractor to open the file, and you can look up online how to replace your saved game files for Minecraft.

I do also have all of the server information and game files saved. If anyone would like to try hosting any servers under the AwesomeCraft name, I’d be more than happy to guide you through it and provide the existing server files, so you can pick up where my servers left off. I can provide technical assistance, as well as administrative access to things like the website and twitter feed.

What I will request of anyone who wants to host the servers:
—A dedicated computer for the server. One that you can reformat and are not using for anything else. A Pentium D/Core 2 Duo/i5/i7 processor and AT LEAST 2 gigs of RAM is recommended. I was running the Classic server on a Pentium D dual core 3.2 Ghz processor with 3 gigs of RAM, and the SMP on a Core 2 Duo dual core 2.2 Ghz processor with 3.5 gigs of RAM (after the recent RAM upgrade).
—A solid, fast, STATIC IP address internet connection. I was using an upgraded Comcast residential package.
—At least basic networking and computer knowledge. The more the better.

Anyone interested, let me know, and I’ll do what I can to help you out.

On a final note, I’d like to thank everyone for being a part of the community we all have created. You guys are the reason SMP is more fun than single player, despite bugs, glitches, downtime, and the occasional stolen diamond.

Hopefully I’ll see you guys soon.

    I think theres a few of the players who have servers of their own, they might be able to help.

    dang, why so long offline?

  3. Indigoxv7 says:

    I host a server, its not 24/7, but it is almost always up every day from 6:00 A.M. to 10:00 P.M. (pacific time zone) unfortunately, I use my computer too much and cant keep it running all the time, otherwise I would attempt to host the AwesomeCraft server =( .

    If any AwesomeCraft players would like to join my server, I would be delighted to have them. The I.P. is 71.134.155.146
    I will add everybody I can remember to the whitelist, so if you try to join and the whitelist kicks you, send me an E-mail at Indigoxv7@yahoo.com and I will add you to the whitelist ASAP.

    And lastly, thank you so much Andrew for the time and effort you put into hosting this truly Awesome server. It has been a great experience playing with the community and meeting new people and I feel extremely lucky to have been part of it.

    Happy mining

      Agreed!!!

    • alzdadog says:

      Hey indi i went to your serv, i’m in a hole in the ground just outside City.

    • water_cat1 says:

      Hey indi, what server software do you use? If you use bukkit maybe you could use the multi world function to host the awesomecraft map. just a thought.

      • Indigoxv7 says:

        I do use CraftBukkit, but if i were to host another world, it would mos likely make both worlds lag horribly =(.

        On another note, I will be out of town all next week so I need some OPs to protect the server while I am gone.
        the server will be running 24/7 while I’m gone, and I wont be able to administrate it. If anyone wants to be an OP, the advantages are pretty much just /tp and changing the time of day. I don’t approve of /give, as I believe it makes things which other people have achieved (such as finding 15 mob spawns) a lot less awesome if someone else is just generating moss stone or the like.

        And alzdadog, if you see this, you are an op, but I don’t want you doing those dungeon things just yet.

    • Indigoxv7 says:

      IMPORTANT for anyone trying to join my server!

      my I.P. address has changed.
      the new I.P. address is 71.134.23.173

      I will do all I can to make sure this doesn’t happen in the future, possibly by getting a web address for the server.

      Basically, I got on, and I like it, just, it’s really laggy

  4. Mrnrh says:

    Meh i can’t get the map running in the new launcher? Any suggestions?

  5. ticytac says:

    i could possibly help, i’ve been running my own server for the time being :D not online all the time though..
    waiting for a stable craftbukkit for 1.3, so for now im on a standard server. IP 67.185.147.135

    would gladly host the Awesomecraft map but my cousins play on my server and they may cause trouble.. i could warn them though

    • water_cat1 says:

      When you do use bukkit, you could use the multiworld ability to host the map, but make it so certain people cant access that map. (If you can’t whitelist the map, you could try restricting access to the portals or however it works)

    • Ticytac says:

      i have a 2nd hard drive on it’s way :D (one of those high performance ones)! feel free to join in on my server… im running a craftbukkit that works as well as some mods to help build a city for the time being… just need people to join in and build…
      Btw my cousins won’t cause much of a problem, they go off into their own places and do their own thing.

      and i can’t find LWC.jar.. i keep finding developer packages… what’s up with that?

      • Ticytac says:

        aaand a multiworld handler plugin has yet to be released…
        unless someone wants to learn Jscript coding, which i doubt… i’ll just wait.

  6. water_cat1 says:

    Sadly as much as I would like to run the server I don’t have a dedicated computer or good internet connection. I do hope that you do get it all back up.

    Why is it always my favourite servers that seem to disappear? Am I a bad omen?

    Anyways, good luck everyone. I’ll continue checking back here.

  7. alzdadog says:

    guys go to indi’s serv
    Its nice

  8. alzdadog says:

    Indi i think hockey is stealing, an iron door went missing and so did the glow stone block on the shrine, also he is very new and has a diamond shovel but does not know how to get sand
    I think he may be a theif

  9. frogjake9 says:

    Andrew, thank you for making my minecraft multi-player experience remarkable, I will miss AwesomeCraft and all of the people I met on it.

  10. Mycousin1 says:

    Jake i’ll miss you too :) lol also whats the ip?

  11. frogjake9 says:

    The Ip for what?

  12. Mycousin1 says:

    i will senciresly miss you my friend

  13. Setsuno9 says:

    I am in the denial phase :P

  14. Mycousin1 says:

    hmmmmm I’m in the “DAMN YOU DOWN TIME!!!!!! stage

  15. ToTheBrink says:

    I am curious to know where all the Awesomecrafters went( which servers). PLease leave a comment saying where.

  16. ToTheBrink says:

    Even though Awesomecraft has been indefinately deleted i think it would be a good idea for all awesomecrafters to choose one server to play on. I think it would bring back the awesome experience back to us. Plz comment if you think this is a good idea.

  17. Setsuno9 says:

    I want to start a new town where people can gather, most likely with floating islands. Let me know on here if there is a server people are commonly using. I go to some of the IPs put on here and they are uninhabited…

  18. Mycousin1 says:

    so yea is this armerican time anyway?
