Server is REVIVED AND UP!

Hey everyone. The server kind of chugged along in my server rack for years and I didn’t touch it. Carian and Cnc had it up with mcmyadmin for a while, then it had a hard drive failure, then it kind of powered off for a while and I didn’t notice…bad on me.

BUT. Then something crazy happened. My kid, Lucas, turned 5, and I got super sick and was hospitalized and took 3 weeks off of work, and we just accidentally discovered Minecraft. Now he’s obsessed, we’re playing a single player game, then he’ll probably join the big server. Because of this, we needed to make sure the server was revived, and I rebuilt it. New MORE POWERFUL hardware, new OS, using Spigot…just in general refreshed. I was able to revive most worlds, though it looks like we lost some time since the last backup I have due to the hard drive failure 🙁

Still, it’s all back up. The worlds have been renamed based on the generation they existed (so, the oldest world is 1-world, then 2-world, then 3-world, etc). The current world has no number. The backups are re-posted here on the website in the sidebar, and this time backups go offsite so it should be more secure. We’ve rebuilt things with newer versions of plugins but there’s still some tweaks to make. All user ranks were reset, so they need to be re-done as people join.

Once the kid and I beat the ender dragon, we’ll be playing too. Until then I’ll pop in and out (like when he’s a punk and loses Minecraft for a few days 😛 ).

Server seems to be back online again

Iam going to visit the server more regularly now.
Had a lot of fun playing today some hours, although no one else besides me was on there. I hope to meet somebody soon won’t give up the hope 🙂
Let’s get this server populated again as in the good old days.

Just dropping in.

What up party ppl?

The Future (What do you want?)

Throwing this out there as a topic of discussion. With many players now moving on from both Teh3l3m3nts and Minecraft if general it leaves very few of us now. Over the past few months i have kept myself busy by mining huge areas and building relics of the past, but, there is only so much i can do before i become bored and this is where i find myself.

I thought to myself of the days in which there would be plenty of people on all discussing builds and ideas together and i long for those days once again. I know that those golden days can never be brought back around again but i still feel, even with this solitary confinement that it is not too late for this server.

We are (or perhaps were) a great community who wanted what was best for the server. I know (personally) what i would like to see happen for the next chapter but i shall come to that shortly. Firstly however, i would like to hear all of your opinions on the future of the server (More what should it be and what should be in it) I’m curious to hear all of this and would like to get as much feedback as possible. I ask that references to past events not be included as this for me anyway is to get a clear, clinical view on the type of server you all want to play on.

I will now list what i personally would like to see both for the server and Teh3l3m3nts website (It may be surprising).

  • New Map (Overworld, Nether and End)
  • No Plugins (Including no more Dynmap)
  • No Rules (Yes I’m asking for Anarchy, i shall explain why shortly)
  • Website completely rebuilt
  • No ranks
  • Unlimited Map size
  • PVP

The most interesting thing i would like is certainly the No Rules part and here’s why. I feel that Teh3l3m3nts has been and should be pure survival, against it all. The world, The players and everything that comes with that, including those who use exploits or hacks for their own gain. I thing that removing all bans and letting anarchy reign could ignite that spark once more of that pure survival.

Now by all means this is not what will be happening, nor do i have any control or say over how the server is run, but i would like to hear what you would all want as fellow Minecrafters and Teh3l3m3nts players.

Until the next time

The Legacy Build Project.

The Legacy Builds Project!

Long time no post, so happy 2016 i guess. I’ve been back and playing for about a month now and i will briefly echo what CNC said previously and simply say… Let’s make Teh3l3m3nts great again, as one of the longest running servers i feel there is far too much history within the maps of this server for it to simply fade into obscurity now.

So then i had an idea. The Legacy Build Project, and so to start off the Legacy build project (Where i will be rebuilding an item from each map from Teh3l3m3nts past i found the perfect one from where it all began, the Legacy 2.0 map. Guess the build and i look forward to seeing you all again soon!
