Idea: What if the 1.8 Arda server just came back instead of the update?... Any thoughts???

I agree. It has been almost 4 years. We don't even get updates anymore. I understand there is a lot of RL stuff that goes on- but I feel like there is a lack of transparency in what is going on. Maybe Frelling could reach out to someone and get help with the coding or whatever plugins need to be fixed/updated. Seems like a lot of work for one person to do. I just wish someone would give us some form of information. It almost feels like the server will never be back.

A status report would be encouraging, but yeah, he could probably use a helper or two. I'd prefer to see whatever new update he's working on, though. 1.13, or whatever it will be. I've been missing VC like crazy lately, and wish I could help somehow. I would become a sponsor but that's suspended right now.

I just remember when Arda was still a thing, but the update was also still a thing. I understand that issues happen, and when you're running something as complex as a homebrew server, those issues can be numerous. Three and a half years. It didn't seem like it had been that long, but I've been keeping track. Trump hadn't even been elected then. Since that election though, time has slowed to a crawl thanks to the news cycle.

https://www.veterancraft.net/forum/veterancraft-dedicated-server/minecraft-1-9-update-begins/

 

We were all so excited back then. The excitement of getting the new content on our server. End cities, elytra, shields, new combat techniques, new blocks. All of it was going to be fun for the server. Then time passed. I'm just jaded now. All I really want is my Arda back. I have numerous builds I want to finish, including a guardian farm, an entire island to populate with a city, and a minecart tunnel to dig to said guardian farm. What have I been up to lately? Along with Roseis, I'm a member of the Southern Canal Corps on 2b2t. We help dig the largest community works project in minecraft history, a canal that stretches over 200,000 blocks. It's a tiny glimpse of order on the world's worst minecraft server. 

 

We're asking. We're begging. We're pleading. Give us SOMETHING. This server holds a lot of good memories for me to just see it die due to a lack of anything going into it.

I'll reach out to Frelling and get an update from him, or he'll post something himself.  Thank you for making this post.  As you can imagine, you guys are not along in wanting to see Arda back, and just the fact that you're still occasionally visiting the forums gives me some hope that VC can still be fully revived some day.  I've never been secret about that without Arda or my Aelfheim, my Minecrafting has virtually disappeared.  3.5 years of work is too much to just let go.

Either I or Frelling will post with something soon.

Thank you very much, LWK.

You have always been a staple in this community. I would love to see the server revived so that we may all return to building. The community in itself is enough to keep one waiting to hear news.

 

Miss everyone.

I also am looking very forward to the return of Arda. Since the server has been down I feel like I've lost both a creative outlet, and the great community of VC.

See you all hopefully soon,

Yeah, sorry. Embarassed

It's "soon™".  I'll reach back out and see where he's at.  Unfortunately I don't have any new information myself.

Greetings all:

Trust in the fact that LWK has been doing a good job at prodding me to post an update. Unfortunately, to no fault of his own, I needed to wait for certain situations in "life" to come to terms before I could even consider posting any projections or goals without them falling apart shortly thereafter; sound familiar? I am starting to suspect a curse place upon me for some ill I did in a past life Wink.

It is going to take a bit more time to create a final revision of an update post, but I am pushing myself to get something reasonable and to the point out of the door, without it being a saga (original draft) or tale of woe (revision 2).

Best regards,

Frelling

Thanks for the response, Frelling. We eagerly await an update post!

I still pop in from time to time to check too. I agree, I would totally be fine playing on 1.8 until an update, but i understand there may be some problems in transferring an up to date save to the new version too so things could be lost. I'm patient. Arda has the best builds I have made, even over single player, because those builds were meant to be seen. Thanks for the update frelling.

It's been over a month since we last heard anything. Honestly, a simple "Yes the server will be back one day" or "I dont think its going to happen" would suffice until Frelling can get a ghost writer to write for him. I really miss my builds and the community.

Sorry, Roseis, I've been out of town or I would have seen this and responded quickly.  My last information was that Frelling was readying a post....but that was over a week ago.  I'll prod him and see where he's at.

It IS hard to wrap my head around the fact that in a few months it'll have been two years since Arda went offline.  While the test maps helped for a little bit, you're absolutely right that we miss our builds.  Arda had become VC, there is no question about that, and without it I don't see VC ever returning.

I'll impress upon Frelling the need to clarify "If" as well as "When."

Thanks for your patience, all.

I appreciate you, LWK. Honestly, the only reason I even said anything is because I check everyday, hoping there is an update, and I just want an answer- even if its a short one for the time being, but anything at this point, is better than nothing. <3 I guess I am just used to Frelling and you being very transparent about what is going on, and I truly understand real life (health, family, travel) takes priority over any thing like this. But, even a short "yes" or "no"would tie me over until we get an update of any sort. Again, I truly miss my VC family, and no matter what- there will never be a server that could come close to touching my experiences on VC.

No word back from Frelling, yet.  Sorry, folks.  I'll keep trying him.

I don't want any snow for the holidays, I just want Arda back.Cry

Hopefully frelling is doing alright and we will receive an update on the server progress soon, even if it is only brief. 

If we don't study the mistakes of the future, we're doomed to repeat them for the first time.

Happy Holidays, guys!  Sorry, I check back in when I can, but it's been a few weeks.

I have not heard back from Frelling since my last attempt, but I promise I'll give him another prod and see if I can get an update.

I'm a tad worried about Frelling. He hasn't logged in at all since early Sept. 

I hope all is well.
