Apparently the server is down now and refusing to start back up. If the issue remains I'll contact technical support.

It seems the server is offline and there's an issue on setup... I can't get it working either. Keep a note of how long the server is down for... Perhaps if its more than 24 hours we can get an extension before we pay again

I just realized I forgot to check the server. It's still down but they posted just 30 minutes ago that the machine our server is hosted on has problems with starting servers so they're trying to fix it now.

I saw the server was up again, so I thought I'd stop in and do some digging in the farm caves.

I logged in, and was promptly suffocating inside a wall. Eh, not the first time lag caused me to appear at the wrong Y-coord and be half in the floor. Or for someone to build something where I had been standing on a server. Jumping usually fixes it when I'm slipped down into the floor, but that didn't work, so I swung my pick to break the block my head was in. Still dark, but no longer suffocating. I tossed a torch, and found I was in a tiny compartment I'd dug out. Checked my F3 coords, I was apparently where I'd been on the floor of the farm cave, but no farm cave. Uh oh. I tunneled my way to the surface, expecting to find the desert above the farm caves at least.

Nope. This is what I saw:



It's a jungle island next to an ocean. Note that our old-ish map doesn't have jungles nearby, nor oceans.

Our fair city is gone. The server hosting company better get it back from a backup, or they better give us a hell of a discount on a new server world.

That looks like a darn interesting island.

Anyhow, this wasn't exactly what I expected to wake up to. I hope the issues with our machine is over now. I don't know why the map was replaced when it started back up, it has never happened before, but there shouldn't be a need to worry. We keep constant backups of the map and switching to one of them should be easy. I can however not do it right now as I have to leave in 30 minutes and need to find a backup and learn how to change map which I absolutely have no time for right now. Unless Bren looks into it while I'm gone, it'll have to wait 5 hours until I get home. Just hold your breaths until then Smile

The map is back. All I had to do was restart the server Very Happy

For those who missed it, the new ip is 66.223.16.151:32065

Then why am I still in the little temporary hidey hole I dug in the side of the jungle island?

Are you sure you're using the correct ip? I tried again and it's working just fine.

it is not the same map.
I was also in the jungle/ocean thingy (cool but not the farm caves by any means) and due to an ill timed creeper i died, (my poor armor D:) and I respawned in a forest with no mountain, desert, npc village, or city in sight.

EDIT:
I discovered the issue, we lost some chunks... I took a boat across a massive ocean to the npc village coords and was met with a cut away of the village, i was in newly generated chunks but most of the city was still there... not the farm caves. we need to load the backup

Confirmed. The Farm Caves are completely gone. I swam across the ocean from the jungle island hidey hole towards the spawn NPC village coords, to find the village bisected by the boundary between old and new chunks.




I really hope we have another backup copy of the map.

There is just something completely amazing about that last picture with the "edge of the world"-door. Very Happy

Anyhow, seems like not even our host can handle the sheer size of the farm caves Razz

There's no need to worry, though. I've restored the server to the latest functional backup. Let me know if you come across any other issues. I don't think there'll be a lot of work lost, if any at all, as the server has been wrecked pretty much ever since then.

Fun fact: The current server size is exactly 200 mb. The backups from the last few days were at a mere 1mb and after the issue was fixed it was at 187 mb, so I suppose the lost chunks came up to a total of 13mb.

Yay! I'm back at the bottom of the farm caves like nothing ever happened. I seem to have back the few logs I'd used to make a door and crafting table for the hidey hole. It seems to be fixed, sret, thanks for fixing it!
