As most of the community knows, Ranch n’ Craft went down the night of April 19th 2020. Upon what was to be a normal restart, our host server (what runs the MC servers) tried to run two of the same MC servers (Ranch n Craft) at once causing a memory spike to over 100% which forced the server down and corrupted a very large number of files. Of course, this included all data, both for players and worlds.
We have been investigating the corrupt data and have finally pieced everything together and are aware of what’s lost. Data from March 8th-present has been lost, including player and world data. We ensure that every rancher will get their things back, to the best of our abilities and as quickly and efficiently as possible. We have taken steps to organise the return of lost items, claims, balances, ranks, and inventories, and ask for your patience and cooperation during this time. Block data that’s only around 70 hours old was found, this means that we are able to find lost builds with your help if you are unable. Note, screenshots are extremely helpful so keep ahold of them. Sort through them all and have them ready for when you need them. (A how to on finding your screenshots folder can be found on #ranch-n-info Discord channel.
We are also making adjustments to allow moderators to temporarily help with some, normally Admin+ commands to help make the transition a little less stressful and smoother on our fellow ranchers. We are requesting your patience during that time. Staff will be extremely busy helping other fellow ranchers, so please keep that in mind as you are in-game and/or discord waiting. We are all doing the best we can, as quickly as we can, and still ensuring rancher satisfaction.
During our downtime we also took the time to move to a new host which suits us very well! We’ve also made the decision to update to minecraft version 1.15.2 which brings all sorts of new mobs, items, and blocks to RnC! New bundles are coming to the donation store featuring 1.15 items, the resource world will be a newly generated 1.15 map, and as the world border expands any new chunks will be 1.15 terrain!
When the server comes back up, please note that some plugins will be either replaced, not working, or have a few bugs. It’s going to take us a bit to sort them all out. We just need more time and testing.
Thank you for your love and support during this time, hope to see y’all back in-game soon!
