I would like to apologize for my absence in recent times, I have been occupied taking care of some personal issues but know that I have not forgotten about you.
I understand your frustrations, and you have all the reason to be upset and anxious. We will sincerely miss players that have left during the past month, and we as Serious Servers, and I as owner are very thankful to those loyal players that have stayed. The community is too large, and has been around too long to just fall apart. As of now things are getting done, no bullshit no excuses.
First order of business... Yogscast Complete Pack.
I stated that we were going to have two Servers, do to the decay in our community this will not be feasible. Instead we will go back to one server. Since most players have there things packed already we will make a new world. You have 5 days to request your transfer by applying to the loyalty program. If you are a player of yogs and need your things transferred, you get instant approval. The link to apply can be found on the home page.
Apply BEFORE OCTOBER 4th!
...at this time the server goes down and the new server comes up, your data will be migrated if you applied.
If you want to take your anger out, take it out on me not the servers or the community. You can all contact me via PM. I value all of you very much and if there is anything that can be done to re-earn your loyalty let me know.
Second Order of Business... ModSauce2
A new modsauce 2 server has been opened. It is currently in "Closed Beta". A few fixes are being applied before we release it to the public. We will let you know as soon as it is available (sometime within the next two days). I hear it has dinosaurs...
Next on the list... DireWolf Update Alot of players have been wondering about the DireWolf Update. Unfortunatley the new update isn't very small...It is actually decently big and breaks....half of everything....The Server will be reset September 28th...Wait that's today O:
If you are die hard fan of dire wolf and want to play the modpack through over and over again be my guest, But Some of these other modpacks we have coming out I hear are much fun. If you have any concerns PM me.
Finally on the current list... Regrowth...kind of... We are launching a new line of servers available to loyalty players. It resets every 28-40 days, with a new modpack at the end. We will do all sorts of wacky modpacks. Modpacks will be chosen by your suggestions and requests (keeping in mind if we can actually run it without issues). The first modpack in this list will be regrowth.
Thank you for your time and continued loyalty. You are not forgotten, for there would be no SS without players. Don't forget to join Team Speak, and if I'm ever in a private channel just poke me, feel free to join the fun. Stay Serious my Friends!
Thank you all for your continued loyalty to serious servers. We appreciate all your time, and efforts, and concerns which help make our community a better place. Here are some news updates about what is going on.
We are migrating to portless Server IP’s in order to easier serve new members and keep our community floating. The new ip’s are as follow:
We have upgraded our hardware and are experimenting with new solutions. We are always finding out the best ways to efficiently and effectively use hardware to maximize performance. Note the new hardware is not the cause for the recent problems with performance on yogs, but it does explain the long hours of down time we had two weeks ago, due to data migration issues which we were able to solve.
We will not be separating the comunity based on region. We are tied in with a great network which is connected to the Arctic Fibre Line. Which allows low latency when connecting from Europe. It would be silly to separate the things that make this community great, the mixture of different views and cultures we all share...with the same love for MC and SS.
As you all know we’ve had issues with yogscast recently due to multiple mod issues. We have spent long hours pinpointing issues on the server. The overall performance has improved although not to the extent we had originally hoped. The map is about a month old which is young compared to other maps which have reached EOL(End of Life). We will keep monitoring the current Yogs server for the next 15 days, in this time we will also ask you to migrate your things to Yog2 which will be available soon. In 15 days time the current Yogs server will be reset and replaced with a new Yogs1.
We have decided to start hosting two yogs Servers again as per discussion over the past few weeks.
We will also be hosting an event within the next few days. It will be a fun capture the flag event designed by our new Event Manager McBaked.
We love all your suggestions and support revolving yogs. As well as your patience with the unbearable lag. We have been trying to keep an eye on the lag and give frequent resets while maintaining uptime, bear with us while we bring up the new yogs setup, it is almost complete but we have some last minute setups to finish.
Thank you again for your continued love and support <3 and Stay Serious!
We are sorry to inform you that the yog map has been abandoned. This map has been the longest map ever kept by Serious Servers. The world is becoming too unstable to continue running. There has been a consistently low tps during the past month and a half, and frequency of down time that is beginning to affect the community negatively. The amount of maintenance required to continue running this map is not reasonable, or within the spectrum of what any strong community can afford. We appreciate your understanding and continued loyalty. We ask you to take the time to look forward to all the new experiences and events that you will go through on a new map. New builds, new friends, new mods to focus on. If you have any questions feel free to message rocketson, HunterBlawk, or I. Once again thank you for your loyalty. Have some serious fun, Seriously.
I'm delighted to announce that DireWolf is Now Open to the public. Its current version is 1.4.1. Thank you everyone that helped out in closed beta. If you find any bugs or issues please report them immediatley via Support Ticket. Thanks!
