Server up?

Oakly posted Oct 1, 18

Yes! Now with support from 1.9 to 1.13.1.

For best performance, stick to 1.12.2. The server runs that.

We've updated to 1.12.2 for stability. Everything runs a lot smoother now and we are not expecting anymore crashes from player connections. I will still be monitoring as it goes.

Server IP: bmc.negusflex.com

Come join us!

Ouch.

So... if you're wondering, the server did crash during launch.

Why?

Well, a whole 18 hours later, we still don't know the cause.

However, we have tried swapping plugins, even swapping factions, but none seem to fix the issue.

Then why didn't you fix this before releasing?? I'm disappointed.

Yeah, well, I can reassure you that I'm more disappointed than you are. I really wanted the launch to be a success. In the end, we spent 2 whole hours trying to fix the issue but to no avail. This issue only appeared after more than 15 people logged onto the server at the same time.

Our network developer has done some research and apparently this issue is common within 1.8.8 servers.

So is the server up??

As of writing this post, yesHowever, I am unable to guarantee stability.

How are you going to prevent this from happening again?

Well, there's no full solution until more people start joining. Currently, I have switched the server over to PaperSpigot in an effort to optimize the server. The server has 32 GB RAM allocated, and as PaperSpigot is a more optimized, patched fork of Spigot, it should in theory run better. Hopefully, this will allow the server to stay up despite more players connecting at the same time.

But what if the server crashes again?

Don't worry. I'll be monitoring the server for another 5 to 6 hours, and if the crash occurs again, we will evaluate our options.

Thank you for your patience. Be sure to join the Discord server at the top right above for live updates.

A New Era

Hey everyone!

First of all, thank you for your patience over the last few days. We've had a few different issues of different severities, all hurdles that we're getting over.

You may have noticed the new domain and new website design! Many thanks to Oakly for pulling all of that together.

A few of the staff have been working behind the scenes to get the server to what Bossman deserves. These are most of the key changes over the last week or so:

  • We finally have a dedicated server for ourselves. No more random unexplained crashes that are the cause of the hosts. A direct line to the support team for the small company providing such a beast of a server will mean we'll have managed support along the way. Specs:-
    • Intel Core i7-7700K
    • 4 x 4.2 GHz
    • 32 GB DDR4 NON-ECC Memory
    • 1 x 256GB NVMe
  • The new join IPs will be play.negusflex.com | bmc.negusflex.com | mc.negusflex.com
  • The new server will be 1.8 due to popular demand, but with compatibility for 1.12.
  • All previously banned players will be given a second chance, and unbanned for re-release.
  • We have a different Factions plugin with Faction chat.
  • We have a new spawn and will have new Nether and End warps.
    • Overworld border will be 15k to begin with and will expand by 1000 blocks (each direction from spawn) each week until around 25k.
    • The Nether and End border will be 7.5k to begin with and will expand by 500 blocks each week until around 10k.
  • The server is more optimised than ever.
  • We have some new premium plugins that will make the player experience better than before.
  • We will be looking into expanding our playerbase onto Minecraft server lists alongside Negus' following. This means we will therefore be able to make a Vote Crate for daily vote keys!
  • We are considering a new donation rank - also due to suggestions - around the $10 region.
    • This would likely mainly come with a Bossman Box key, but would be a chance for anyone who does not want to set aside much but still wants to show their support for Bossman Central - and still get a tag in-game as a sign of appreciation.
  • ABushyFox has joined me in being Co-Owner.
  • Bayt has been promoted to Admin, #PraiseBayt
  • Note from zapteryx: Special thanks to Georgie for singlehandedly setting up the forums! Wouldn't have been possible to release the website today without your help.

A large majority of this could not have been possible without our donators, so I'd like to thank you last of all.

We will keep you up-to-date when we have a clear, set re-launch date.

If you aren't already, follow @BossmanCentral on Instagram!

DM zapteryx#6161 for your donor rank or if you have feedback of the site.
