Just letting everyone know, the main server is back online. Thanks for your patience while we were on the temp map!

Updates on main server? I've seen a few people connect then leave when they don't find what they were expecting.

What we've determined so far is that the VIP vaults section of the build5 map is likely corrupt, and likely what was crashing the server. Hac has downloaded the map to his computer (9 hrs transfer) to mcedit the VIP vaults to a different location in hopes that this will fix the corruption. So, he is currently working on moving that right now (as I write this), then we'll have to upload the map back to the server and retest to see where we're at.

Look like Hac's found the exact bad chunk, so we're going to upload it back to the server this evening (9 hrs), and hopefully have it up and running soon afterward..!

Sounds great! Hopefully this is the last of the problems for a while. :) Can't wait to get back to my town.

At the moment, we're (unfortunately) looking at 1.4 days to re-upload the map back to the server. But, at least we have a working map now! So long as there's no more corruption that we don't know about, we should have it back up and running the day after tomorrow!

Ok, great, and also I was wondering what kind of computer runs the server?

9hr to download 11GB? (I saw that size somewhere) is quite long... is the size of the file much bigger or does he have such a slow internet? If so, i could offer to "borrow" my internet connection (100mbit) to download and he can remote access if that helps. I have a fiew computers standing and running for nearly nothing ;)

It's an i7 @ 3.06 ghz, 24GB DDR3, 2x60GB and 1x120GB SSD's. Dedicated server.

The map is 14.5 GB unzipped, 7.5GB zipped. It's just a slow connection between him and I. His upload speed is the limiting factor - I could download it in 20 minutes if he had a fast enough upload!

Thanks for the offer to help, but the map is fixed, we just need to get it back to the server. If he uploaded it to you or to me, it would still be the same speed.

Thanks for sharing the specs Sgt Spike. Your computer is comparable to mine.
