This is a announcement to the people of EnderCraft that the Direwolf20 server will be down for a long maintenance starting around 12AM (midnight) EST. Again, this is intended to be a long maintenance so please be patient because what awaits you after the maintenance is truly something to wait for. We hope you guys will cooperate during this maintenance as you have been in past (so thank you) and we promise that we will try to get it back up ASAP. Finally, there will be something along the lines of "UPDATE: Server is back up" after the maintenance is finished on this post Thanks - EC Staff
In attempts of fixing the influx in Direwolf20 crashes that you may have witnessed yourself over the last day or two, we will be resetting the extra dimensions this Saturday the 25th at 17:00 or 5:00PM Belgium timezone. Till then, it is highly recommended that players do not go to any extra dimension but the Nether, End and Twilight Forest as it may cause them to crash. We hope that you will cooperate with us while we try to resolve the issue at hand
Dimentions are reset and should not crash you again!
On Pixelspark 2, we have disabled CustomNPCs and they have alot less timeouts now. We will do the same on Pixelspark 1. In 24 hours, 12 am Belgium time, the mod will be disabled on PS1. If you are using the CustomNPC banks, take everything out of it. There will be a banker placed at spawn.
The next update here on the front page will be something big. It will involve new custom plugins, a new store and something with ranks. Have fun figuring out what it could be :D
The pixelspark community has noticed that the servers are lagging quite a bit. I have been trying to find the cause of it and I have 2 theories:
1. There are too many pixelmon spawning (over a 1000 on each server) 2. Custom NPCs
We used the same spawn rate for pixelmons as last map and already took it down by half which did help but did not solve the problem. Then I removed all NPCs and they did reduce the lag and time outs a lot but not completely. I don't want to keep the NPCs deleted, so we will slowly test what the actual cause of the lag was and hopefully add them back to the game.
As for B-Team, there has been a request to reset the extra dimensions. This includes the nether, end, mars, etc... but NOT the over world or player data. The reset will happen on April the 4th at 18h00 (6pm) Belgium time zone.
