Been a little dead around here lately.. can't imagine why of course, however the server is going to carry on as mentioned in the shoutbox earlier this month.

Server voting kinda dropped off this month due to a ip space change on the webserver caused... with all the changes that caused it meant the kz server was reporting votes to an ip address that was no longer active. And the "Notch" vote was caused by planetmc test votifier.. its fixed, however voting for the minecraft server seems somewhat pointless, I'll leave it running as a means for players to get some extra ingame money.. however as far the votes for the month being shown on the website or the topvoters thing.. that is over with sadly, as the reality is just doesn't have many people doing it anymore.


Work progresses on a new website that will merge the http://7dtd.tk site in with http://kraftzone.net

It will be a change of forum/site style etc.. 

Though I have yet to find a replacement for a shoutbox ... its one of the most used forum features so going without that would be a bad option

its not xenforo or vbulletin... or mybb or smf or vanilla.. xenforo would have been good, though the license for it put me off, and the gallery for it was an additional fee..  The forum software I'm planning to move to it really wipes the floor on these licensed forums.

Anyway no idea when it will be ready, some of technical challenge is sifting through chinese documentation via page translation in order to add some custom php codeblocks.. i think it will worth it if I dont give up and stick with smf or maybe use vanillaforums.


In other news I have put up a Ark :Survival server.. its shown in the server list under 'Kraftzone.net'   or you can use 

+connect 188.165.251.178:27015   

add the above line in the set launch options for it on steam.. until them developers sort there alpha game out ...with a proper way to direct connect in game at least..  honestly not that impressed the with game, however its all rage right now, and the dedicated is a little underused, so might aswel have it running something else.

Server will be down for a few hours or longer, depends how long the OS swap over takes, restoring backups, setting up everything for a different OS environment etc. finished

I recently posted at http://7dtd.tk regarding why this is happening, to explain where things stand with me running that server. And while its very specific to that game some of its points stand to effect me continuing on with this server aswel.

You should all know that this minecraft server has largely been going because I had started the 7dtd server back some 10months ago. As a gamer I enjoy running a server for games I enjoy playing, and games that have have potential and a platform for modding and coding. 7dtd offered those things, but I no longer see its potential ever reaching a point where I feel the work I put into that server has been worthwhile anymore. Not to say I wouldn't carry it on in some, but not paying to do it at aswel. The enthusiasm for that has gone now.

All things come to the point where you have to evaluate if its something you enjoy doing. Adding the money side of it because I do pay for a dedicated server to keep this going. I have never had an issue paying for a server without donations when I enjoyed the game it was not why kraftzone started. However it will be why the minecraft server ends, it probably would have ended 2years ago. Simply because I don't have the same enthusiasm for minecraft. A lot of has changed with running a minecraft server in the last 2years. Part of me has kept this going out of a responsibility to keep it going for those who have made it there home server and enjoy the server features, setup and rich history it now has with all its past world maps, and not forgetting those who have donated.

The fact the last substantial donation for the minecraft server was last year. and never covered the full cost of the server bill most months. For which it is me fronting the bill, neither did the 7dtd server, so that server wasn't carrying things either. So Kraftzone stopped paying for its own upkeep a long time ago, and after almost 4years running, a long time I'm sure you will agree, its had its success and I certainly enjoyed keeping it going even without donations, back when it was popular. However Minecraft servers are now dime a dozen and the games popularity has been on steady decline for a over a year now. I think the other matter is that I've never had an interest in running a server the way you might see other more popular servers run. And most of you loyal players even play other games now, and so do I.


The server future is in the air right now for sure, which is never a nice thing to know but I feel you might aswel be honest with you, instead of ending it on the day. Anyway feels like this is the server end post.. its not, not yet it may come to that sure, it might not either. The server may go private and continune running on a smaller server setup, it certainly doesn't need a dedicated server like the one its on anymore.

If it comes to the closing server next month I will be sure to post a much longer post, it would not be the end of Kraftzone.net anyway.

Anyway don't want to make this post really long,just wanted to let you know that server will be down for a while. It will be backup soon as I do the OS swap and see where things go with that.

New map added for 1.8

Fresh 1.8 world has been added to the server now, it is the new default survival map. You can get to it via command /world18




For those with areas on the old world (the map from 1.6-1.8 use /whereami if not sure) it will be frozen sometime before next month, that means that you will not be able to build or break blocks on it anymore. Your homes, teleports, town spawns etc will continue to work and you can still visit the map though :)

Also the 1.7-1.8 amp world will remain aswel you can still get to it view /wilderness

As a measure for those with homes on multiple worlds, everyone has gotten 1 extra home.
Meaning all players have 2 homes now /sethome <name>  and /home<name>

Houses and items will not be moved, its fresh start and that means that the new map has its own separated inventory system from the other server maps.

Coming soon will be player shop market, instead of warp signs to playermade shops, everyone will rent a shop space at the market and setup there chestshops in one location for everyone to browse.
