The Unitedworldminers and EnderIO team wishes you all a Merry Christmas!
Please note that we may be unresponsive for the next 48 hours.
CTO of Ender.IO, Loves Linux, Open Source and his girlfriend. Interested in almost everything technical.
yup autumn has been approaching fast and here in Germany, leaves are already falling.
It has been quiet the past few weeks here. The cause of this is that I am currently really busy with university and work which does not leave much time communicating with you, the community. :/ (currently typing this in a quick break between lectures)
Well, actually a lot again! We have been working in the background in getting our Minecraft servers on the new management panel which allows us generally a simpler way to manage our Minecraft servers. The new panel also improves crash detection (and auto reboot) + should result in a generally more stable service for you. (Let me know if things improved or gotten worse in the past few weeks).
We are also in the midst of patching some severe bugs on our servers (none that resulted in any breach but present a possible vulnerability which we want to patch before it becomes bad, luckily the open source community around Linux is continuously improving the kernels security). For this last point we have to reboot all our physical and virtual servers which is planned to happen at Saturday the 29th October 2016 (tomorrow) 08:00:00 CEST // 02:00:00 EDT // 06:00:00 UTC
Farmworld reset on all servers. Many people requested this by now and we will take action on this one.
Regular modpack updates to patch bugs and keep versions up to date (including working on the issues you already reported).
New modpacks (original ones by Unitedworldminers).
Tell me what else you expect us to provide for you!
In the meantime, have fun and enjoy your time :slight_smile:
Yesterday I was just testing around with the latest version of Minecraft (1.11) and OptiFine + KUDA Shaders. All images were taken in glorious 4K (3840x2160).
It looks so darn awesome and I am impressed every time what a modding community can achieve! All these people developing and managing things for fun have become so professional on their way.
it has been about three months again since we posted something here.
Just a few points to keep you updated:
In the deep depths of our servers we are rewiring things to improve reliability and speed even more.
If you have some game or modpack you would like us to host, feel free to tell us in the comments below!
Okay, let’s keep this short.
I wanted to get more things done this week but I got a bunch of important work for university to do which I prioritise.
What to expect:
Der Reset wurde um 1Uhr heute morgen vollzogen und danach gab’s ne ca 7 Stunden Wartung. Server sind jetzt online. Bin mir aber iwie nicht sicher ob das jetzt endgültig ist weil an den Server Namen kein Datum steht wann die eröffnet wurden und die Server noch auf [Dev] stehen.
Hehe, jup danke für den Hinweis, ist offiziell jedoch noch kein Datum eingefüllt, kommt mit dem nächsten reboot ;)
Some time has passed since we started our Novus servers back in July this year.
Since we started, your eager to play has been overwhelming and we were happy to host four Novus Remix servers for you.
Now as time has passed and more than 10.000 (ten thousand (!)) people have been building their most advanced (tech) setups (which are awesome!) on the servers things started to get really, really laggy and unstable.
We noted this and there is sadly nothing we can do to fix this for the current servers. This is the nature of Minecraft - evolve, build and start over again. The restart will greatly improve the servers performance and let you enjoy playing together again.
After the reset, only two servers will be re-opened again after a short maintenance period. With this reset, we will also update the modpack and add some additions to Thaumcraft. Due to large abuse of the Translocators mod, it will be removed with this update.
We will only continue two servers to concentrate our support better and deliver improved servers for you the community.
If there is enough interest we will add a donator only server. You may vote in the comments if you like to have a donator only server.
If you have any questions let us know down below.
We are also open for name suggestions regarding the new servers, how should they be called?
Do you want to have a mod integrated into Novus Remix? Your time to shine, tell us down below in the comments too.
Well, let’s keep this short. About eight hours ago we decided to do start a quick maintenance for our servers. We planned to apply a few important security fixes.
That worked. :sparkles:
You remember “Never touch a running system.” ?
Yup bad luck was on our side today :( And a “simple update” broke a lot.
Eight hours into fixing things (mainly our Minecraft nodes) we are still on it and hope to resume full service by tomorrow (20161102) 06:00.
Some gameservers are back up online, Teamspeak works, Forums works and our websites work.
So please bear with us. We do our best to resolve all issues as fast as possible.
@tjwmagic Well classic :D
I’ll do a full write-up of what happened in the past days for the technically interested people :)
nein der Server ist nicht down.
Er sollte unter folgender Domain / “IP” verfügbar sein:
Alle anderen IP:PORT Kombinationen funktionieren (nicht) mehr. Bitte die obere Domain nutzen.
Solltest du weiterhin Probleme haben auf den Server zu joinen bitte Bescheid geben.
erstmal freut es uns, dass du wieder zurück bist! Wie du schon festgestellt hast haben wir im Juni 2019 damit begonnen unseren jahrelangen
Pure Vanilla Server zu modernisieren. Dabei wurde die alte Welt nach mehreren Jahren durch eine neue Welt ersetzt um entsprechend alle neuen Materialien aus der neuen MC Version 1.14+ zu unterstützen.
Wir haben vom alten Server selbstverständlich noch Backups und würden diesen bei Interesse nochmal als legacy Server für dich und andere interessierte laufen lassen. Sobald du überprüft hast, ob deine Bauten dort vorhanden sind können wir dann auch gerne die Welt zum Download anbieten. Für weitere Rückfragen stehen wir dir jederzeit zur Verfügung.
Due to another mistake on our side the TS3 server has again been unreachable for about 11.5 hours. From 05:12 - 15:38 (09.01.2019). We sincerely apologize for that fail on our side and have fixed the issue causing this mishap.
The technical reason was us running two separate instances of our TS3 server simultaneously. After the ISP went down (Vodafone) we were forced to migrate our TS3 server onto our core infrastructure at Hetzner Germany (uploading the files via slow 4G). The migration went well and we were back up running in less than an hour. As clients use a domain name to connect to our TS3 server we kept the ‘old’ TS3 server running at the old location/ISP with a message pointing towards the correct IP (just in case someones DNS (servers) cached our domain too long (ts.unitedworldminers.com)).
This is where we failed: The ‘old’ Teamspeak server still used the same license as the Teamspeak server at the new location. Our license allows us to run one single instance of Teamspeak on one IP, not two. Teamspeak periodically checks if there are servers breaking with their licenses and stops all additional instances to avoid multi-using one license (which is completely legitimate of them to do!).
This is what happens if your ISP goes down in the middle of the night and you start doing some quick and dirty workarounds, forgetting to remove your license from the old TS3 instance…
Time of incident: 09.01.2019, ~01:06 - 02:12
Due to a major issue with our internet service provider our Teamspeak 3 server has been down for about an hour.
We have taken counteraction and migrated our TS3 server onto our core infrastructure at Hetzner Germany, back into a datacenter.
We apologize for the downtime. The action we have taken will prevent future issues.
No other services have been affected by this outage.

Due to a number of bugs the Deep Dark on our Novus Remix server is currently disabled.
We are investigating on this issue and will reopen it as soon as possible.
This thread has been opened to track the progress and inform the user base.
We apologize for the inconvenience.
