Our 1.8.6 Update and migration to our new servers will begin around 8:15 PM EDT on 6/3/15. At that time, the old server will be shut down to make a complete copy of all server and data files to be transferred to our new servers. Given the progress we made this week on top of what we originally had planned, I expect that the installation and testing of the new server should take no more than 2 hours; however, it may take as long as 4 hours.

After data transfer is completed, the old server will be restarted. You are welcome to continue playing until the new server is up. However, please note that any builds, progress, experience, etc. that you make during that time WILL NOT transfer to the new server.

Once the new server is running, we will post temporary addresses in this thread that will remain valid until play.veterancraft.net and maps.veterancraft.net can be updated by Meatbawllz. Furthermore, voting will be disabled until we are able to update or voting sites with our new server information.

More information on changes will follow once the new server is ready for prime time.

So, to clarify... this means that play.veterancraft.net will no longer be the current server address, and that, although we might be able to get onto it soon, it is no longer the main play area...is that correct?

We'll be fully into 1.8.6 when we get into VC via a new address, is that right?

 

Checking, cause I am sometimes tech-impaired.

 

And....THANKS!! (yes, I put that in caps!)

play.veterancraft.net will take you back into the 1.7.9 server once/when it comes back online. It will essentially be a place to hang out and chat until 1.8.6 is ready.

Correct. IPs will be posted for the 1.8.6 server address as well as the livemap.

Our old server is back up again. Again, I want to REMIND everyone that anything you do on this server now WILL NOT be transferred to the new server.

The old (temp) server seems to be back online! :)

EDIT: Excuse me for double posting.
