1.8 and the Future

With 1.8 just around the corner it is time to think about the future. After a successful visualization project demeter is now safely running inside another machine with much better physical hardware. Because it does not take up any physical space anymore there is no real reason to shut it down. So as I had said many times in the past, we are going to keep demeter running for as long as possible in to the future. You will always be welcome on the server and any creations that you have claimed will never be regenerated.

Virtualized! (and DNS updates)

Well, a slight critical hard drive failure has sufficiently motivated me to finish my visualization project. ta-da: demeter is now running on a virtualized machine allowing it to be much more dynamic and robust. Unfortunately due to a bug in the version of the server we were running all the changes made in the last few months to homebase (or any constantly loaded chunk) were not saved. I will be working to re create these changes as well as take a page out of jdkomo's book and have the server reboot each night to allow for all the chunks to be saved and backed up. I have also removed the teamspeak server from demeter and it is now running on a new server called Hermes, all of the old DNS records have been updated to point to the new server location as well.

Lastly can now be used as the server location once more (as well as The website can also still be found at via a web browser

Happy Crafting!

New Player Welcoming Changes

After learning more about NBT tags and how items spawn in Minecraft I have created a new center for welcoming new players. Any player that has not yet visited the new center can press the button and get guided through a short path and be given the equipment they need to begin their adventure through Demeter. Two maps, of Homebase and of the world shop, a set of custom leather armor, a wooden sword, and a Player's Guide that contains the list of commands that can be used within Demeter. It is a very interesting experience so I would encourage any player, old or new, to venture through it. You can find it by following the signs from the center of Homebase.

Runnint 1.7.9

All up to date with the newest bukkit beta build. Thanks to jdkomo for getting me on a new minecraft binge. At some point in the near or far future Demeter will be moved onto a virtual machine on a more powerful computer. Not sure when it all depends on when I get around to actually learning how to visualize things! Happy crafting.

Running 1.7.2

Hey guys, work is hard and I had started to play some other games, though I always find myself coming back to this game every few updates or so. With some minimal testing I have gotten the server updated to 1.7.2! Just like always it is open to anyone to play on for as long as they like. Any suggestions of what should be added to the server can be posted on this here blog.
