We are currently deep into talks and development projects regarding the Minecraft EULA situation announced previously. In the couple weeks since we told the public, further details have been finalised but many are still actively being discussed. We hope to keep ToastyNetworks as the most enjoyable modded Minecraft network around, and we will not allow the EULA to compromise this. As a result, our discussions and projects are taking a long time to be finished, so expect more updates to follow this one!
Now, down to the topic at hand:
Server Closure and Downtime
As many of you have voted for low population servers to be closed to help us keep down hardware costs, we have decided to work on this topic first. As of Sunday the 26th August, the following servers will be closing as a result of low activity:
- Space Astronomy
- FTB Beyond
- FTB Infinity Evolved NA-2
- FTB Infinity Evolved Skyblock NA
- FTB Infinity Evolved Skyblock EU
- FTB Infinity Expert
As these servers are closing, some further changes are being made to two existing servers on our network. FTB Infinity Evolved NA and EU are being reset on the 26th August. This decision has come due to there being major differences between NA (Which is the original Toasty IE) and EU (Which was migrated from DeVco). The reset will allow us to properly sync the servers without having to worry about existing data being damaged in the process.
As a result of closing these servers, we will have a lot of room empty across our current hardware, and will be migrating the left over servers to a single machine the following day (Monday 27th August). The servers impacted by this are as follows: (Clarification: following servers will not reset or be removed, they will only have a bit of downtime)
- FTB Continuum
- FTB Infinity Evolved NA-1
- FTB SkyFactory 3 NA-1
- FTB SkyFactory 3 NA-2
- FTB Direwolf20 1.12
- Tekkit Legends
An additional announcement will be made on our Discord server when these servers are going down for the migration.
You can expect more updates in regards to the current donator perks/ranks and other EULA changes in the beginning of next week.
