    Restarting the server now. Same error. Must be a bug in the version of bukkit that we're running. I'll start testing some newer builds to make sure that they work with the plugins.

    Also, I was just teasing you snarkasm ;)

    I'm more than happy to restart act as admin, if needed. I'm pretty much available from about 9 a.m. to midnight eastern U.S. time. Even when I'm not gaming, I've still got net access pretty much everywhere.

    Just finished testing a new build of bukkit and updating the official server. Hopefully that will take care of the random server crashes. An interesting side effect of the upgrade which I noticed after logging back into the new server: wood blocks no longer burn forever when lit on top, they now burn out quite quickly in fact. This makes me quite sad as I used that for decoration and lighting in DickKeep, now I just have empty fireplaces ;_;

    Well, hopefully the newer build of bukkit that has been deployed will take care of the crashes. Sorry for the inconvenience, but Minecraft is beta for a reason (and bukkit ever moreso).

    I think some of the inconvenience of this is over-riden by the fact there is a white list again.

    Wait... What state did we roll back to? Are our construction projects from Thursday evening lost?
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    edited Feb 2011
    We didn't actually roll back, the server threw an error which apparently caused anything built since the previous backup to not be saved at restart. Or at least that's what I'm gathering from the above posts. I haven't confirmed any of this.

    Bobby's comments in the koth thread make it sound like it came back to the same state it went down in, but K's comment makes it sound like things were lost.

    I'm trying to log in to see for myself, but it's timing out.

    Edit: Got in, nothing seems to have been lost. I was right where I was when the server crashed last night. Although it meant I started to drown...

    Well, that's good to know. From the logs it looked like it had saved properly during restart but _k_ made me worry.

    I believe _K_ was referring to the logs burning out now instead of burning forever causing his time loss. I do not know what project he is referring to that it took 8 hours to do and 5 more to redo.

    Ah... I see. Yeah, the logs burning out annoyed me as well. Though it did have the nice side effect of clearing all the floating logs near my keep that were on fire. There's apparently a bug report filed with the bukkit team about it. In the future, I'll be doing more testing on the test server before deploying on the official server. I just wanted to get this update out because there was a show-stopper bug in the old version.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    edited Feb 2011
    So are logs that were burning before the update gone / not burning now?

    If so, that changes the look of PvP Island a lot and we will need to figure out another way of marking its boarders.

    Yes, unfortunately, they burnt out (were consumed) within minutes of restarting the server with the newer build. Since I didn't have any burning logs on the test server, I wasn't aware that would happen based on my 15 minute test run there.
  • edited Feb 2011
    I think K wanted to cover an entire lake with burning logs 3-4 blocks above the surface. Now the logs are gone, and the lake is restored. Looks better now IMO :P

    Bad news guys, logs burning out is not a bug, rather it's a bug fix.

    http://bugs.bukkit.org/issues/356#note-1

    Apparently logs were never supposed to burn infinitely. Bukkit just happened to fix the bug before the official minecraft did.

    Yup, hence the introduction of Netherrack, a replacement.

    Unless, of course, a very generous moderator finds it in their heart to give everyone a small but useful allowance of Netherrack to hold us over till portals are added to SMP. Say, 10-15 blocks each. Hahaha :D

    Hence why Mojang hasn't officially fixed to yet :-P

    Bukkit has put us in quite the predicament.

    In SMP, correct. Nothing but make noise and look cool.

    That is correct. I also built one into the wall in DickKeep. Just looks pretty and makes noise at this point.

    Yes, bukkit has made things interesting there... IMO it's a small price to pay for having plugins and a whitelist again though. Hopefully SMP hellworld won't be far behind.

    SMP Nether is coming as confirmed by Notch. Though the way the game is coded last he mentioned it there will need to be two servers. One regular world and one Nether and the portals would transfer you between the two. He states there are more issues there because of inventory control. To throw another wrench in the gears he has also mentioned adding a 3rd dimension being the opposite of the Hellish Nether.

    Edit: There are a few major "bugs" that have been exploited enough to become the norm. Notch has mentioned leaving these in the game until he can implement a replacement. The next big one is mine cart "boosters", not a feature, a physics glitch that Notch has said he will get rid of, but again will implement a replacement for.

    noon is one of the hardest times to log on to MC due to MC.net unavailability. Maybe noon isn't the best time to reset everyone's connections to the IC MC server?

  • GHoosdumGHoosdum Orange, CA Icrontian
    edited Feb 2011
    The 503 error is related to authentication on the minecraft server end, so you're correct Snark. The odd thing is that the minecraft servers were supposedly upgraded to eliminate such problems. You'd think with the pile of cash that notch has made so far, we'd see some more improvements to the experience.

    I'm open to doing the backups and whatnot at a different time. Feel free to open a thread and we can try to work out a time that works better for the most people. I chose noon because I figured it would be the time that the least amount of people would want to be playing.

    Same here. I can reach the title screen, but trying to get on the server is futile.

    Latest addition to the Official server, I'm setting it up to generate an updated isometric map each day after backups are taken. Once the map is generated, the old one will be overwritten. Fair warning, from my test renders, it looks like the maps are pretty big (around 45MB). I wouldn't recommend opening them in your browser.

    Can we remove the cave mode flag? Also, what renderer are you using?
  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    edited Feb 2011
    Sorry bout that, the cave mode rendering was a test. It will render normal when it does the scheduled job tomorrow. If I have time later tonight I'll run a manual job to replace the map. The coffee shop I'm in right now is closing though and I have to go.

  • ardichokeardichoke Buttes Master B Lansing, MI Icrontian
    edited Feb 2011
    Okay, there's a non-cave render of the Icrontic map up now. The lag last night was probably due to the renders I was doing. If they cause problems in the future, I'll probably go with weekly renders instead of daily (or perhaps stop doing them altogether). Either way, future renders should be quicker since I'm making use of caching. Oh, and as for software, I'm using c10t.
