1.9.2

Hello Astrians,

Finally!

The server has updated to 1.9, and with that all the new content should now be available for you to play with. So go get your chorus plants, we all know that's what you've been waiting for.

We updated with most of our critical plugins updated, and sadly some of our cosmetic and gamemode ones didn't make it. They'll be added back later, either once they update, or once a suitable replacement is found.
Please let us know if something isn't working on the forums, and we'll try and solve it as soon as possible.

So what can you expect now that the server is updated. The end and the nether have gotten a reset, and the resourceworld now again is back to being endless. The area north of spawn will be released in the near future for you to build on, together with an elytra flight track. We'll be launching a new buildcontest for you to win prizes in and we'll be releasing our next dungeon for you to battle through and get some amazing rewards from. 

We hope to see you soon,
~Astria staff

Astria and 1.9

Hey Astrians! 1.9 is finally coming out! It’s been a year and five months since 1.8 came out, and just over a year since Astria updated. We’ve been waiting quite a long time for this update. As with most updates, we need to wait for Spigot and most of our plugins to be able to run on 1.9, but rest assured that we’ll do our best to keep the server alive and well as we work out the kinks (meaning not crashing because of unexpected bugs with the update or certain plugins being horribad).

We had some ideas for 1.9 however we want your input too, both for the server itself and the map setup as we continue onwards.

http://strawpoll.me/7035227

http://strawpoll.me/7035246

For example if the community would like a place to try out the new update in a vanilla setting (meaning no plugins, no protections, nothing whatsoever) we are happy to say that we will create a new world for players to experiment in with the new updates. We will keep the old map saved, so your stuff isn’t going anywhere.

We hope to see many of you online to try out the new update in the future. And stay tuned as the server comes closer to updating. We have some plans for some of the new toys that will come with 1.9, a contest amongst them aswell as some cool event ideas.

Ofcourse if you have some idea, we are happy to listen. For example, why not revamp the server with plugins we've never had before?

Cheers,
~Astria Staff

Merry Christmas

And a one, and a two... *a choir starts singing*

Hey Astrians,

Seasonal greetings and Merry Christmas to all of you. I hope you all are having a wonderful few days with plenty of food, drinks and presents. Perhaps in the downtime between after dinner naps and uncle john singing christmas carols, why not swing by on Astria and give a few rounds of snowball fights a try? Use /pb join to start a match. Then find a partner and lob snowballs at each other. Use /pb leave when the match is over.

Cheers,
~Astria staff

Shop currently disabled

Hey Astrians,

The shop is currently disabled until the shop provider has their stuff figured out. We'll update you once the shop is back.

Shop is back up again.

Cheers,

Happy Thanksgiving 2015

Hey Astrians,

Happy Thanksgiving, may your turkey be amazing and the skin nice and crisp. Enjoy the holidays and we'll see you online.
For our other players, no we won't have any turkey monsters to fight, that turned out to kill half the server when we tried it with easter. So it's safe to play, we swear!

Cheers,
~Astria staff

Modded season 1.5

Hey Astrians,

So modded season 1 ended a long time ago, and after the new spawn, and some much needed under the hood updates (have you seen the server crash lately? Neither have I). We are now releasing our second season of modded for Astria.

This season we are going with a mod pack, partially because I'm hard to decide what to put in a custom one this time around, so that will be for another season, but also because some give a nice basework to start with for new players as their quests guide new players to modded content and what to do. And no more messing around with the custom launcher. 

This season we will be playing Agrarian Skies 2, which has been around for a little bit, but with that said has that nice start up feel into modded content. 

So how will you be able to play. Grab Agrarian Skies 2, version 1.1.14, from your favorite launcher of choice that provides it. Get the fix in that they promised a month ago. (How to is at the bottom of this post) and you are good to go for playing on modded.astriacraft.com. Talk with Mr Guide at spawn and after that you can play alone, you can play with others, just pick 1 of the free towers of choice and use your quest book to get started. If there are no more stones, just let me know and I will build more windmills ^__^

If you have anymore questions, just put them in the season 2 forums.

Happy modded,
~Astria staff

P.s The fix, with their last update they forgot to remove some spaces in one of their agricraft files. With this 8 items, seeds to be exact, don't seem to work. How to fix this:
Either download the new CustomCrop.txt and replace it with the one in config/Agricraft. Or go to your config/Agricraft/CustomCrop.txt and remove all the spaces between a ',' and discription. So AlchemicalWizardrybloodRune:0,3,1, Much quieter than hunting becomes AlchemicalWizardrybloodRune:0,3,1,Much quieter than hunting.

It seems like a simple thing, but that is indeed what removes 8 needed items to be able to quest proper. 

P.p.s When installing an alternate way then a launcher, do note that you need mc version 1.7.10 and forge version 1492.

For those with a multimc instance, you can also import this zipfile: AgrarianSkies2.zip

New spawn? New spawn.

A cool, damp wind brushes the hair from the back of your neck, and you glance around anxiously. The streetlamps flicker dimly in the darkness. Where is he? you think to yourself, shifting your weight nervously from one foot to the other. He said he’d be here…

The previous night, an unkempt man had beckoned you from the alleyway, giving you a nearly toothless grin. His beard was scraggly, his eyes were wild. “How’d ya like to see somethin’ new?” he had murmured, eyes darting restlessly around, as if looking for someone who had yet failed to appear. “Something new?” You had no idea what the man was on about, but he nodded excitedly as you repeated his words back at him. “Aye, somethin’ new. Somethin’ ya never seen ‘afore.” You shake your head, doubting the man’s sanity and backing out of the alley. He cackles at your nervousness. “Meet me att’a big noticeboard in the center o’ town tomorra’ night, an’ I’ll show ya.”

In spite of your best judgement, you found yourself gravitating towards the center of spawn by the time the sun began to set, and now you stand here in the dark, looking around for the man. You find the thought of something, whatever that ‘something’ might be, irresistibly tempting, and you have to find out what the crazy old man had been going on about.

As suddenly as a candle flame being snuffed out, the lamps around the center of the city are all blown out. The wind blows stronger at your neck, the smell of salt water and brine whirling around you. You feel slightly nauseous, and back up against the solid wood of the noticeboard. A low chuckle alerts you to the presence of someone else, and you look to your left to find that the man has seemingly materialized next to you. He grabs your arm and you try to pull away, but he is much stronger than he looks. “Righ’, somethin’ new,” he mutters, eyes alight with a feverish glee. Fear courses through you, but before you can attempt to fight his grip, you feel yourself being pushed against- no, through- the noticeboard. You plummet downwards, feeling your body being tossed and thrown in every direction, and you lose sense of what’s up and down.

As suddenly as the sickening whirling began, it stops. Your eyes are squeezed tightly shut against the gale, but as the wind subsides to what it was before, you slowly peel them open. You look around, and find yourself in a completely new location. The ground beneath you is obsidian, but cracked, and strewn haphazardly into the ground, pounded into the earth. The noticeboard appears the same, but as you turn around, a completely new sight meets your eyes.

Three gaping ruins glare at you, dark and looming maws for entrances. You stride forward to approach them, and find the stones to be cracked and crumbling. Upon closer investigation, you find clues that hint at their purposes. Vines and water surrounding one indicate the life of another world, where bright red rock and lava indicate a fiery hell in the depths of another portal. White, deathly looking stone adorns the third portal, and you decide it must signify another dimension entirely.

You continue on the path to the right, and see what appears to be a garden with a high iron fence. A man grumbles to himself, picking at a weed within the garden. You approach him, and he informs you that you’re intruding on private property, and unless you have business involving traveling with the waystones, to scram. As you walk back along the path, you glimpse what appears to be a huge, imposing castle in the corner of your eye. The doors are shut, but you’re curious as to what lays behind them. As you head back to the obsidian spot in the grass, you hear a shout. “Hey, you!” You turn, and lock eyes with a grizzled looking man. “New here, are ya?” The man offers to tell you a thing or two about the city, and you gladly accept his offer. Perhaps he can explain where you’ve ended up, and help you find your way around.

New spawn? New spawn.

Hey guys. So as you may have noticed, Astria is getting a new spawn. The aim of the spawn is to be prettier and easier to understand than the old one. Let us know if we hit that goal or not.

If you had a house in the old spawn, we’ll move it over to the new spawn, free of charge. If you want to buy a plot in the new spawn, contact an owner. Same goes for market stalls

Bugs can be directed to either Denn or Bacon.

Little updates everywhere

And you get an update and you get an update, everyone gets an update!

Hello Astrians,

This time we have a bunch of little updates scattered all over the place. It's been about a month since we moved hosts, and made our own website. We're getting to the point where we like what we have and only have to change a few little tid bits left and right. And with that we would like to invite you to write something on our forums, which can be about anything. Perhaps you have some lore to write, a newspaper to publish, or perhaps you feel like you're missing something ingame or on the website itself. Let us know on the forums.

Voting is back, which means you can vote for our website on different server listings, and for doing so you will earn token rewards. These token rewards will be exchangable for items in the near future, but you can stockpile on them already just to have a headstart. You can see which listings you can vote on by using the big radial menu and clicking the vote button.

Teamspeak is also back. Nothing fancy here, just use talk.astriacraft.com in your teamspeak client to connect, and chatter about with whoever you like. 

In the radial menu the map is also back, giving you a nice aerial overview of your builds you are currently working on, or perhaps peek on someone else's build while you're at it. 

Modded had a little oopsie due to a chunkloader gone rogue, the server is up again, but sadly all chunkloaders had to be removed from the map. They are back in to be crafted, but please make sure that in these last weeks of the modded season to not destroy the map before it is put up to download. Be considerate about the chunkloaders boundaries, and don't rely on them too heavily and just supervise heavy tasks like erecting a giant floating island out of the ground.
We are also aware that due to us moving hosting the modded.astriacraft.com ip might sometimes not connect you, if this is still the case, let us know and in the mean time please use 151.80.40.179:25560 to connect.

Vanilla, as some of you have seen already, is getting a little addition, we are working on a new spawn, and are releasing some new areas in the near future. But more on that in a later post.

Till next time,
~Astria staff

Site downtime

Because we're upgrading and updating

Hey Astrians,

Today you might expect some website downtime as we are migrating to our new site. This might also include a little downtime on the servers through play.astriacraft.com and modded.astriacraft.com. If this is the case use 151.80.40.179:25565 and 151.80.40.179:25560 respectively to connect to them. If all goes well the astriacraft.com site will be up with a new and improved look, but we are still working on improving it.

This also means we will be migrating away from enjin, so you might need to register with the new site to post on the new forums. Depending on how it goes the first month we might have to switch things around.

And as always your advice and comments are appreciated.

Hope to see you on the new site,
~Astria staff

It's in there

Oh my...

Hello Astrians,

Just a small update post. 

New resource world is and up and running. It looks like we found the fabled mesa biome, which had more away of a unicorn the last few months. Rumoured to exist, but never to be seen. Until now, so it's time to find a unicorn to go with this. 

Your melon work over the summer so far has paid off. Everyone should now have access to the "Happy" effect in the aura menu. That way you can work the melon fields happier than ever and deposit more melons to get even better prizes.
Also starting this weekend, and every weekend to follow over the summer, there will be double rewards for everything money related. Mcmmo will give double leveling gold. Killing monsters will give double their reward. Enjoy the happy hour weekends.

Cheers,
~Astria staff
