    News!
    There's been some tweaking done to the server today. Progress toward W5!

    We're back to using PaperSpigot for our server JAR again because I think that this does give us less lag and better performance than "vanilla" Spigot.

    I've also added a selection of plugins to bring us closer to our final setup for World 5. Say hello to:
    • Dynmap - flat map only, available at the usual address
    • LWC - you can once again lock your stuff away from thieves
    • CoreProtect - will be kept to a 14-ish day history
    • GChestShop - a tiny bit different from our previous chest shop plugin, but very similar
    • FishSlap - ><(((('>
    • MobHunting
    • WorldBorder
    Keep in mind that these plugins aren't fully configured and don't have any of the old data from Tess to draw from - their main purpose is to test and simulate how the server will perform on a real W5 configuration.

    If you come across any permissions problems then please let me know so I can sort that out pronto.

    What next?
    With these changes and additions, I'll let the server run on our current host, Nodecraft, for the coming week and keeping a close eye on if / when / how often we get any crashes or fiery explosions. In a week's time, on Monday 10th December, I'll switch the server onto selfhosting mode - with exactly the same server JAR and plugin setup - for a week, to directly compare the performance and crash rate.

    Beyond the selfhost, I can't say until I have more data!

    Anything else?
    There are teasers being posted over the next few days inside the #world-5 channel of Discord showing some of the places inside the WIP "World 5 Lobby" (yeah, a better name is coming :p ). Stay tuned there for beautiful pixels!

    Okay, since it's been a week after the tweaks, today will see the start of some temporary self-hosting.

    We'll see how this compares!

    From the point of reading this message, please connect to CW on the IP 82.47.170.55. For the duration, Dynmap will be unavailable (though it is still active on the server to simulate the same config as we used on Nodecraft, for a true comparison).

    A development server will be running on Nodecraft for Smoke to continue his good work. If you try and join play.cubicworlds.net while the selfhosting period is active, you will be greeted with a whitelist message. Don't panic and just use the IP mentioned here instead :)

    I just spent a few minutes on the self host. Quite nice. Very good response.

    Alright, so after a week of self-hosting, it pretty much boils down to me thinking that Nodecraft aren't the right host for us, and over this week I'll be trying to find us a new one. Tonight's first effort got off to a completely flat start by failing to even send me the server access details within two hours of purchasing it, so after I finish chasing up a refund we'll see if the second choice manages any better. :roll:

    Please send tea and cake. I'll need them. :kappa:

    We're testing out a new host that actually set up us a server this time!

    Our new IP for the time being is:
    89.34.96.47:25599

    The play.cubicworlds.net shortcut won't work, but I'll see if it can be fixed if it looks like this host might be good enough.

    The #hosting channel on Discord will have up to date news.
