1.7.2 World turns 5 Years Old!! And so we bid farewell...

Hello dear friends,

Today marks a special anniversary for the 1.7.2 World as it turns 5 years old today. No other world has achieved this feat, nor has any other world ever come close to rivaling it. It is, I would argue, the one world that has the most history of the server contained within, from its humble beginnings in 2013 up to the present day. For many of the current playerbase, the 1.7.2 World is all you've ever known of IC's history along with our two newer worlds that have only recently scratched the surface of the community's rich heritage.

However for those able to recall the youthful endeavor so long ago, that time when the great expanse known as the 1.7 Update filled our hearts with joyous applause and the thoughts of virgin lands appearing once more to be no mere rumor, I wish to take you back in time. The 1.7 world changed the game for the server and the players beyond what could have been foreseen. The old world at that time, 1.3.1, was in a state of decline, with...

A change in staff!

It is time to announce the recent changes to the staff team.
We are happy to announce that both @Omio and @Xuqi have been promoted to Super Moderators.

We have all seen a lot of effort from both of them. Helping out in every possible way to keep the community and server running. Special thanks for the huge work behind the *shaky* 1.13 launch! Without the help of @Omio and @Xuqi (and of course everyone else that was behind the release of 1.13) the server would have been unplayable.

... But unfortunately we are also saying goodbye for now to @ZiiimZooon that are leaving the staff team.
We would like to thank you for all the time you have put into our communtiy and server.

Urgent 1.7.2 World to be Removed

Hey peeps!

After reigning as the oldest world on Iciclecraft, the IC Staff has decided that the 1.7.2 world will be removed from the server. This will occur on December 8, 2018, which will be the world's 5th birthday! Also, we plan to consider removing the 1.9 world sometime in early-mid 2019. We kindly ask that you inform other members of the server and begin the process of relocating items, builds, and other necessities to the new 1.13 World in the coming weeks.

Do not fret however, for as promised we will be releasing world files for 1.7.2 as well as previous world files. We will also be working on the creation and expansion of a Memorial World in order to save priceless gems from the many years of Iciclecraft history. Thank you for your cooperation and have a good day.

-Astro

Hello everyone!

We have been trying to rollback the server to post 1.13.1, but have failed to do so. We would like to apologise to everyone for the troubles that it has caused.
  • Please keep your items in chests. We are currently trying to restore everyones inventory and enderchests to post 1.13.1, as many have lost items.
  • Be aware that we might restart and take the server down numerous times in the next couple of days. We will ofcourse let everyone online know before doing so.
  • We will regenerate the 1.13.1 World, so get your ressources from the ressource world instead. The A worlds inventory might get affected.
  • We will try to do some hotfixes the next week to solve all the issues like no nether fortresses, item loss and structures.

Again I would like to apologize for these issues. We are doing our best to counter them. Feel free to use our discord for any questions.

Hey peeps!

As many of you are aware atm the server is currently down at the time of this thread. Here is the current list of items that are being done and addressed:
  • Due to the amount of internal stress on the server and errors affecting it from the update, we are currently creating a backup of the server in order to revert back to 1.12.2 version of Minecraft. We expect this to last 1-2 weeks before performing another update.
  • We are preparing to do a rollback of the server from the past 1-2 days in order to bring everyone's saved data back to a point in the coming hours. Note: During the time of the rollback, there may be a chance that we are unable to recover items from inventories and ender chests.
  • You will be able to play on the server within the next few hours of this thread being made. Thereafter we will investigate how to fix the persistent issues that were being experienced during the past day on the 1.13.1 version on a test...

Hey peeps! Thought I'd make this thread to give a few quick updates and news regarding sever information:

  • Thanks to @Bavu you are now able to scroll paintings! No more frustration in waiting for the right paintings to decorate your wall. Simply right click a painting that is placed on a wall and you will be able to scroll with your cursor until you find the painting of your choice, then right click to exit the editor.
  • A brand new Mob Arena will be coming soon in the very near future! For those unfamiliar, Mob Arena features a closed map where you may pick one of a handful of classes in order to face countless hordes of mobs and the occasional floor boss. The new one will be ~2-3x larger than the old version and potentially even more terrifying!!! See screenshot for a sneak peek!!!
  • In the works with @Omio , @Cetec and myself is hopefully a solution to fixing the AutoRank plugin issue that...
