Our server is a friendly community oriented survival server. We have a strong focus on quality builds, socializing, and player interactions. We aim to heighten the players survival experience with a variety of plugins to slightly tune the vanilla atmosphere while retaining the spirit of the original game.
This is the heart and soul of the server. Everything is oriented around our Play Positive policy. Below are how we implement our server policy. Our policies are tailored to both your playing style and the reception of our intended audience.
Mature Adult Player Community
We are looking for talented players to improve our community base. Whether its building highly detailed buildings, socializing, being a spectator, mining, creating complex redstone contraptions, combat, we target a wide audience. I however want to emphasize that we are a mature adult community. If you are younger this server may not be as fun for you. If you don’t think you would enjoy participating in an occasional political, current event or complex project related conversations then you may want to look somewhere else. I want to see everyone have fun playing MineCraft regardless of what age or server you play on.
Our admin team are mature adults that have been playing together and administrating MineCraft servers since about October of 2010. They are all well experienced in handling almost any situation to resolve any matter or disputes you may have. I never give admin rights to just anyone nor do I sell admin privileges like other servers might. We make obtaining staff a thorough decision making process and not a sellout. Better staff = Better server. The staff are also players and have to “PLAY” the game too. That’s right! Admin and mod commands are only for fixing and repairing the server and city setup reasons. This includes world edit. No building diamond houses in creative mode just because they have the ability. This is a survival map not an "admincraft" map. I don’t want to overshadow the players who legitimately build great things with this “admincraft”. Admins are not permitted to spawn or give out any items so don't ask.
I’m here taking charge. I pay out of my pocket for this dedicated server with ZERO financial assistance. This makes the server very personal to me so let that be my promise to you that I will be a dedicated owner. My Play times are usually about 3:30 AM EST till about 12:00 PM EST
We don't throw out the map when MineCraft updates. That’s right. Your creations are here to stay as long as the server is alive. The new world format makes seamless additions to old worlds. When a significant map changing addition is entered we will expand the world size and migrate the spawn to the new area with the new blocks, biomes. Then we will then lay down a line around the old areas so players will know what area they are in and version type that map was generated in. Also warps to old/new areas will be created for public use. This promotes expansion and new growth in undeveloped territory. Unless we experience severe world corruption (We have onsite and offsite backups so it shouldn't happen) or other critical update that requires a new world to be generated the map stays.
No waiting months for “Recommended” bucket builds and there will be no grief periods. We will update the server as soon as we have working methods of grief protection and a bukkit that works for our needs as long as there are no serious crippling bugs. We backup everything before committing to an update. The bukkit team suggests that server owners take this approach as it can take months to reach a recommended build.
High Def Dynmap with 8 Rotatable directions
FULLY generated / rendered HD world to explore in DYNMAP. http://obsessioncraft.com:8123 The DYNMAP is FULLY HD rendered in 8 rotatable directions, HD night view, HD Cave View, and overhead view as well as HD maps for the nether and the end. Let’s see those other cheapie VPS servers even attempt to do this. I wanted to give everyone a really good map to use so that you could show off your creations anywhere at any time without needing to be logged on the game. I hope this will encourage everyone to step up their build quality because now the world is watching what awesome things you are making. Another reason for the highly detailed map is to give access to those who cannot play the game for what ever reasons. Now our community is only a click away. Don’t disappear if you can’t be home at the pc! We are right here waiting for you. We also permit chatting in DYNMAP. If you login the server the DYNMAP will automatically associate your user name with your IP address so everyone will know whose talking.
Using many plugins designed for the rollback of griefed areas as well as onsite and offsite backups of world data we consider ourselves grief proof. Even if the server root password is compromised the world cannot be destroyed. We are also an McBans participating server.
See all of our plugins with the /plugins command
- Magic Carpet - So you can build without needing scaffolding. It's a small one though. - Multiverse - We have a flat world dedicated for large redstone contraptions, foolery, and admincraft. - iConomy - We wanted there to be a way for players to trade things they don’t need to others to make those buildings they dream of. This may make getting things easier and reduce the amount of work you need to do to build something… at a price of course! - DeathControl - You can buy death insurance so that you don’t drop items on death using iConomy money. PvP kills are freebies as well as deaths due to jumping in the void. - HawkEye - We can view and rollback griefing as well as ban the violator. - Lockette - Protect your belongings - NoCheatPlus - The future of MineCraft AntiCheats - McBans - A Reputation system involving many servers. Known griefers and groups are already banned. You don't want us to give you a strike on your account. - SignShop - To sell items to others in your shop if you so choose. - Residence - Plugin designed to take control of cities and buy and sell plots. - WorldGuard - Protection of areas. Fire spread and TnT are disabled - RedstoneChips - Restricted trusted users. - CraftBook - CommandBook - Dynmap
And others for administration use.
The rules are simple.
- Be courteous and respectful to others
- One should not treat others in a way that one would not like to be treated.
- Do not grief, hack, use exploits or be a badmin (Admins have to follow the rules too!)
- Respect other peoples property.
A Dedicated Linux Server for our Dedicated Players!
+ 2x Intel Xeon W3520 8MB cache Quad-Core Processors (4 x 2.8 GHz) [3.1 GHz Turboboost]
No 3 year old processor here! We use the latest generation Xeon processor. It's the best our host offers!
+ 24GB 1600 Mhz DDR3
Our spare ram is used as a ramdisk for our world data. This means that there is virtually no latency between world chunk load and chunk writing. The ramdisk world data is software managed meaning that even if the server crashes the maximum possible rollback would be under 10 mins.
+ 2 TB SATA 2 ( Raid )
Our server runs in RAID for faster storage allocation, with a custom made kernel for a more effective outburst of quality.
+ Both onsite and redundant offsite automated backups with another host.
It's critical in these days to backup data on another independent unrelated host. In the event of hardware failure, human error, software corruption, host shutdown or even griefers there is always a backup of your world in another datacenter. With offsite backups even if the server root password is compromised the world cannot be lost.
+ 100 Mbps Guaranteed Bandwidth
We only use our server bandwidth for the streaming of data related to this single MineCraft server. Nothing to adversely affect your ping. Just plain simple MineCraft gaming.
+ Located in a 24/7 Dedicated Server Datacenter We only run this MineCraft server and its related processes on our box. Our host's network runs purely on Cisco switches and routers passing through 3 independent transit providers, with optical fiber network, connected in double safe circulation.
+ Monitored 24/7 by Datacenter Technicians
Our host provides round-the-clock monitoring of the network using Nagios and RTM (Real Time Monitoring). They regularly monitor all the hardware including the switches, routers, UPS systems, and servers in our hosts data center.
Ahoy folks! Just a quick bump to support this server - it's running like a charm and spawn town is already growing! I've known both of the owners and most of the staff since 2010.
