September 18, 2021 - Because of our supporters and fans of our mods we are able to fund a brand new server for development and game servers for you. Thank you!
Hey everyone! We always try to be upfront of what we do with all of the funding and like to show how it’s helping us and benefiting you.
Because of our supporters and fans of our Minecraft mods, we were able to build our own dedicated server colocated @JoesDatacenter in Kansas City, MO, US that hosts all the things needed for mod development, as well as game servers for you to enjoy.
Colocation? What’s a Joes Datacenter? Is that a computer?
Basically, we built our own Tower that we are using as a server and have shipped it off to a datacenter where it will have excellent network performance, cooling, security, and the support of the team there. This box runs all of our websites, development tools and Minecraft server related things.
What happened to the last server?
We had cut a cheap deal with the hosting provider about 2 years ago when we were just using it to host our website and 1 Minecraft server. It was a server on older hardware from 2012 in Canada and it worked well for the time being. That is until as of this year, were experiencing bottlenecks in terms of performance and only this year the provider continued to have network issues and downtime.
Can I play on the Minecraft Server?
Yes, right now our most popular server that we have since the beginning of Modding Legacy is our Aether server. There’s also a Creative server as well as a simple and small KitPvP server that we play on from time to time. We want to eventually start a Blue Skies server as well, and may come around when 1.17 is a thing.
You can find all of the information such as the IP address and such at the link here: https://moddinglegacy.com/servers/
Is that Modding Legacy Merch? I want that sticker!
Really? We just had a few made for our group to have and stick it onto things. We may want to try with Blue Skies stickers with mobs and bosses instead of our logo. We’ll consider it if it’s wanted though.
