Hey everyone, the server bill has arrived and just like last year we are requesting donations from those who can afford it to help pay down the hosting costs for the HFMC minecraft server. 77 Dollars USD will get us another full year of hosting with our current provider/setup and that is the main goal - anything above that will be used to purchase additional months for the server. All funds collected will be going directly to the server.
Server hasn't yet added the beta, but they usually get it done quick. If they don't have it by tomorrow I will add it manually - something I would prefer not to do but I want to play 1.5
Also of note, we will be deleting the nether very soon in order to re-generate it for 1.5 (ie. Nether Quartz) I will likely do it on Saturday so that I can spend some time putting a rail system so everyone can get around.
Do you guys want me to keep the donations thing up permanently? I don't mind keeping it up and keeping a log of who made what donation.
Sounds like it might be a good idea... I can definitely understand what others said about not being able to donate right now, but being willing to later in the year. Then I don't have to hustle contributors
Looks like I'll be adding 1.5 manually (as well as the mods) later today. I have a few meetings to do first but should having it up in the late afternoon/early evening.
In the meantime, here's a nice 1.5 invention for your redstoners out there. It's a T Flip Flop circuit (basically a button that rotates between on and off states) that's really small and doesn't need pistons:
