Aaaand.. We're done! Yay!
As some of you may be aware, we've been rewriting WatchBlock, one of our core plugins. As part of this process, we needed to migrate all of WatchBlock's data to our new system - so that's what's happening today.
While this is going on, you will be unable to connect to CMP. Instead of being unable to get onto the network at all, however, you will be sent to lobby if you last disconnected while you were on CMP, and you will be able to go to SMP from there.
We debated the possibility of allowing players to connect to the server while the migration was underway, but we wanted to be sure we didn't miss any ownership changes as the migration continues, so we've decided against it.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused. While you wait, you may want to read up on how this new plugin works.
Please be aware - There is a huge amount of data to process. There are 33321 chunks of owned blocks to process, which will be a maximum of 1,091,862,528 blocks - The actual number is a lot less, probably somewhere around 7,000,000, as we don't need to store any blocks that are owned or are air blocks, but it's still going to take some time.
My fairly generous estimate is around 20 hours - Since this post was made roughly at 8:30AM (GMT), that means the migration should be done by 6:30AM (GMT), but in reality it should be done a lot faster than that.
UPDATE - This is going considerably faster than we expected. No ETA right now, but it shouldn't take much longer.
As a player, you have access to the following commands.
/friend- Works the same as
/wallow, used to allow a player to edit your blocks
/unfriend- Again, the same as
/wremove, remove a player from the list of players allowed to edit your blocks
/wlist, this allows you to see who you've added to the list of players that can edit your blocks
Staff also has access to..
/setowner- Used with a WorldEdit cuboid selection, this allows one to set the owner of an entire region of blocks
- Note that this is buggy right now, and needs to be looked into
- A bypass - you can edit any block, anywhere
- WorldGuard region flags - Set the
bypass-protectionflag on a region to
trueand ArchBlock will allow all edits there, regardless of protection permissions. This may be useful for quickbuilds, etc.
