Vincent is back up!

I have not actually figured out the server crashing issue, and it may be caused by Vincent, as it's been perfectly fine with Vincent off.

  • Alice is now up, at least for now.
  • Vincent is still down.
  • We still don't know the cause, but we will be able to rule out Vincent at least.

The servers will be down temporarily until the cause of the recent crashes is discovered. Thank you for your patience.

I've updated Vincent to Minecraft 1.4.2. There is also a new Vincent client update.

HOWEVER, I accidentally deleted Minecraft 1.3.2 while it was still running, while I was updating to 1.4.2, so I had to rebuild the server from backups. I used backups that are up to four hours old, but we also have the block log, which means we can roll back any progress you've made up to the latest version (just ask a moderator).

Here's the status on the servers:
  • Where's Vincent 1.4? We depend on a server modification called Bukkit, but it's moving kind of slowly and it's not quite ready for MC 1.4. However, I'm going to test it this weekend to see whether it is in a reasonably working condition so that we can update. Worst case scenario is that everything breaks, but we'll see!
  • Where's Alice 1.4 (or 1.3)? Unfortunately, it appears that the Bukkit+Forge combination that we use is mostly likely a dead endeavor. Forge is required to most of the addons that we use, and Bukkit is required for a few addons, and all our important server administrative functions. From this point on, to make Alice what Alice is, we would have to switch fully to Forge, but that is complicated by the fact that the important bits we rely on reside only in Bukkit space. Fortunately, most of those important bits are mine, and I've discussed a few things with a Forge developer and there's some eventual plans that should allow us to move over, eventually. Everything's kind of still up the air, and not all the mods we use are even available for 1.4 (or even 1.3), so even if we could switch tomorrow, we'd have to drop some of the big mods that you currently use (and also forego any reasonable protection from annoying people).

Vincent has a new server texture pack! It's 32x32 and thus requires HD texture support, but if you use the launcher, you will already have support. Please enable the texture pack so that we have a baseline theme to go by.

In addition, 'aggressive snow' is back. If you leave your doors open, you might find a little snow indoors. In addition, placing torches or plants out in the open isn't recommended unless it is high up away from any surface.

  • If you use the newer launcher, the Vincent profile now installs a Vincent modpack with a minimap and other useful mods.
