It has been really annoying lately, waiting for the new version of bukkit to be released. Bukkit is very hard at work building the recommended build for 1.4 and just announced that they are releasing 1.3.2(R3). But most people have upgraded to the newest version. So while I am eagerly waiting for bukkit 1.4 to released, we just have to wait until it shows up on their site. I am constantly waiting for it to show up in my reader account, and once it does, I’ll be upgrading to get all of my players back online.
If you are still with us when we get around to updating, there won’t be many changes soon. Since I am in school, I have very little time outside of work and school to manage my server, along with everything else here. But we do have some long term goals.
LONG TERM GOALS!
- We will be moving the server and isolating it from the AGOA’s main physical server. Because of DNS issues, it will require a nameserver change. So the minecraft server will no longer be at agoasite.com, it will be moved to minecraft.agoasite.com. Not a big issue, but it will generate a bunch of nonsense calls or emails on why the server is gone, when it in fact has just moved.
- I am still hoping to get fiber to my house. If that is the case, I will be moving AGOA to my datacenter offsite from the city. But if I end up quitting my job, I lose my chances of getting fiber. I guess only time will tell..
- Premier_Pyrus is going to be developing mods and addons for Minecraft once and hopefully before the API is released. I hope to one day move away from bukkit and use stock Minecraft, and by using it’s API, mods will be more friendly with the architecture and cause less lag and stability.
So, please hang tight. We are trying to get the game back to you. We’ll probably send out a news letter to everyone announcing the server is back, so look forward and keep in tune to our Facebook and forum posts.
