Well, after enough testing and hard work, the server is finally ready to go! As is custom, here is some random rock song to kick off the event:
I figure "TNT" couldn't be a more appropriate song for Minecraft, actually...
Anyway, Please feel free to join and play on the new Survival Server! The hostname is the same as always, delorean.eagleworld.net with the default port (25565). Note that the Tekkit Server is still down for now as I am currently doing a lot of stuff and need the extra horsepower on Delorean.
If you are looking for what to do, here's a cheat-sheet for different types of members:
If you have played on the Tekkit Server
Your membership is considered current. You can instantly start to play, no initiation required. Here is how the ranks convert from the Tekkit Ranks to the new ranks:
Veterans will stay as Veterans on the new server.
Alchemist and Engineer will become Master Rank on the new server.
All other ranks will become Artisan Rank on the new server. If you played at all on the Tekkit Server, you are considered fully trusted and will enjoy the benefits of it!
If you have played on the older Survival Server
Your membership is considered inactive. You will be able to play and will retain your old rank, but must first go through the new initiation process, which is detailed here.
Once you complete your initiation, though, you will immediately retain your old rank. Ranks convert from the old server to the new as follows:
VIP will become Master Rank on the new server (they are equivalents in abilities).
Artisan, Architect, and Builder will stay the same rank.
If you were banned from Eagleworld
You now have a chance to appeal your ban! Head to the Ban Appeals section of the Eagleworld Minecraft Forums, sign up for an account, and follow the sticky there to complete your application. We would like to give people a chance to make amends and have another chance to play on Eagleworld, so please feel free to submit an appeal, which the staff will carefully consider. Please take your time with your appeal, though, as you only get one shot!
Stuff that isn't ready
While the Survival Server (Aquilia) is ready-to-go, I am not quite ready with some other aspects of the server. Here are a few things I didn't finish yet, so keep patient with those and we'll get those going ASAP:
- The Global Shop (The plugin works, but I am still building the stores themselves)
- The Donation Page (I will get this going soon for those of you that want donation perks)
- All of the Blog pages (I will update everything with hints, staff members, and all that fun stuff)
- The Tekkit Server is offline for now until I am done with the server heavy-lifting
