April 2013 Update
Hey guys, the only current server we are running at this time is our Ventrilo one. Not enough demand or players for the Minecraft one, or DayZ one. Lately, our players have been doing a lot of League of Legends, Dota, EVE Online, World of Tanks, and War Thunder. If you’ve been absent for a while and want to rekindle the bromance, feel free to contact me (info on the right) or pop into vent. ...
No more Minecraft! Hellooo DayZ server!
So I’ve done away with the minecraft server (less than 5 players per month) and signed up for a DayZ server! I’ll post more info when I get it sometime this week. Cheers! -Treesquid
So, recently we’ve had a lot of interest in the popular Arma 2 mod, Day Z. I went ahead and picked up a ventrilo server (15 slots for now), and I think I’ll turn this tumblr into a general blog for games everyone apart of our small community is playing, which right now seems to be Day Z. If you have any pics, videos, or stories you’d like other members to see, just submit them...
Important! Future of Squid Server!
Hey guys, So I’ve been checking in on the server, and noticed it’s been rarely used the past while. With the release of Diablo 3, a lot of players have migrated off minecraft to that, while others have outright dissappeared. I’ve talked to a friend, who has been up until now paying for half the price of the server (a hefty 28 dollars a month), and he’s backing out do to...
The New World has Begun!
Everythings live, I’ll be downloading a backup of the old maps tonight for those who want them, and I’ll upload them for all to have. Meanwhile, log in and start your own empire, or join the Squid Empire! There is 100% no creative, ever. New Siege mode for your land, and more! See you online!
Important! Please READ and then VOTE!
Hello, so as the server has been relatively quiet lately, I’ve been looking at some new plugins, as well as thinking of ways to spice things up, and here’s what I’ve come up with: *Note: Make sure you VOTE, the link as at the bottom (after reading through of course). GriefPrevention has a new option that includes Sieges. It’s now possible (if enabled on the server) for...
Changes, Bans, and Submissions!
Hello! So I took a couple of minutes today to do some server upkeep, tinkering with plugins, checking on some players, and general adminnish work, and banned a couple of players. Bans! Slumtowel, and Mitchmorr12 have been added to the banlist for Hacking, and X-raying, respectively. Of the 6 very basic rules we have, they had to go and break one. As a reminder, Flying is not allowed unless...
I went ahead and updated to 1.2.5!
So the server was down today (I have no idea why) but I removed a plugin and it’s up and working again. I myself am nearing finals, so will not be around as much as I’d like to, and even less than the past week or two, but after that I’ll be back in full swing. I have some ideas for the server (hopefully fun ones) and some plans, so I’ll start talking to the players when...
Updated to 1.2.4
Everything seems smooth on 1.2.4, waiting for a recommended build now so I can also update plugins. Your Squiddy Overlord, Treesquid
Expansion and Growth
So, while I may be extremely busy with school and studies and not being able to pop on as much as I’d like, I believe the server is stable enough and we’ve handled the few new players joining pretty well. With the recent upgrade to the server, we’ve got a lot more power to bring players in, and it’s a perfect time to start bringing in some new people. So I’m asking...
Survival Island 2 In One Hour (4:30 CST)
Due to last night being too late for anyone to get in on Survival Island, we’ll be doing it in one hour from the time of this post. See you there!
Late Night Survival Island: Round 2 Tonight at...
We’ll be doing another round of survival island tonight! About 3:30AM CST technically March 11, perhaps earlier (depending when i’m off work, so BE EARLY if you want to join) we’ll be running round two. If you’ve never played it before, it’s basically a survivalfest. Everyone will start off the same with 0 xp, items, or food. We’ll be dumped into a set of...
If you’ve received an email from treesquid3, or a tweet from treesquid3 linking you here, or with the same text in the email, it means you’ve been accepted. Here’s the contents of the email, and what the tweet would cover if it wasn’t limited to 140 characters: You’ve been accepted! You can follow us on twitter: @treesquid3, more indepth updates on our tumblr, or...
Interested in Being a Guide? (possible advancement...
Then shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with a short app. Just tell me your prior experience, a bit about yourself, and the hours you’d most commonly be online for. Note, this is not a cushy job. You’ll be answering repetitive questions more often than not, and it can be rather thankless. But it makes it easier on the new guys, and I don’t have to mod as much. These...
Important Server Announcement:
Please read this start to finish, as there are important details. We’ve upgraded to 1.2.3, and are back on Bukkit, and this means that soon we will be whitelisting all of the people that were accepted but not yet whitelisted while we waited for a stable bukkit version and land protection. This means that if you have something important to protect, I suggest you read this page for...
Server had an Accident
So the server somehow has two nethers. When we’re on bukkit, it’s an old Nether, and when we’re on the official Minecraft one, it’s the one we’re all used to with the tram system and grinders. This, combined with bukkit being a resource pig, means we’ll definitely need to upgrade to hold up to 20 players on at a time. I’ll be talking to others about this...
Still waiting on bukkit, but we’ve upgraded to 1.2.3.
So a minor patch came, and we’ve also upgraded to 1.2.2. Open up minecraft and let it autopatch, and you should be good. We’ll also be sticking with the standard updates from here on out, just waiting for bukkit to catch up now. More info to come later.
Server Updated to 1.2
With the release of the official 1.2 today, we are upgraded. Throughout the next week or so as soon as Bukkit has a stable build, we will be switching to that. During this time, I’ll be discussing a few changes with the players and team of moderators. We will also be rolling out a form of land based protection too, so anyone that want’s to protect their land, I suggest you pop in and...
Update to 12w08a
The server has updated to 12w08a and there’s tentative talk about 1.2 coming soon. This means I’ll be bugging players about input for various things, and prepping the server for our release date. We’ll be setting up protections too, I think everyone should have a bout 3 days to a week to set up protection after we get back on bukkit. Here’s a link to the 12w08a client.
Anonymous asked: Are you still accepting applications? If so, how do i know if i've been put on a hold list or denied access?
Anonymous asked: What is the texture pack being used in that picture of City on a Mountain?
Updated to 12wo7b
You can click HERE for to download the 12w07b client. It’s required to play on the server. As I write this, the map is being converted to the new Anvil format, with a height increase to 256. Hopefully they were correct in saying there would be improvements to performance and we don’t notice a change. If anyone has any questions, email me or shoot a tweet my way. The map should be...
New Snapshot Update
We’ll be updating soon to the new snapshot. I’ll post when we’ve updated in a few hours.
February 14th Update
So we’ve been up for almost a week, and accepted a bunch of playeres in to help stress test the server, and get a head start on construction. Tomorrow there’s a good chance that a new snapshot will be out, so I’ll make a post on here when it’s up and I’ve upgraded. If you want to continue playing on this server, do not upgrade until the server itself has upgraded, or...
Anonymous asked: Old treesquid player here - Jaykaybay - I registered in march and you may remember me. I had severe major lag problems and you referred me to a nice piece of software that helped a little. I tried to log in today and I am no longer on the whitelist.
Feb. 10th Update
New players and applicants, please read: I’ve replied to all of the new applications up to 6pm CST, as of February 10th. I’ve been whitelisting players that followed the rules and showed effort in their application, especially the ones who link interesting builds, and show maturity. That’s not to say that someone who’s been accepted and not yet whitelisted hasn’t...
White List Applications (Up to Feb 9)
All whitelist applications have been responded to as of 7pm CST, Feb. 9th. A few people neglected to include in game names, so I’ve notified those people. The following people have applied via tumblr and did not include an email or twitter account, and so they are denied until they give me a way to contact them. There in game names are: Hurst126, Obsidian_Golem21, Blockmaster,...
Update to 12w06a
Click HERE for a link to the newest snapshot, we’re currently using 12w06a. So funnily enough, the whitelist was kept off this morning, and people were logged in and exploring. Thankfully nothing was griefed, but the whitelist is back on, so sorry to those who popped on and started building, but the server’s not quite ready for it just yet. I will be replying to emails and messages...
For those just interested in seeing our current...
As not all of you are applying to play on the server, but asking for more pictures and a map download, I uploaded this a day or two ago: Febuary 7th Upload of Squid Server. Read the page for coordinates to our larger works! It is already outdated as BigDeal74 and I have done some major construction on his City atop a Mountain (It still needs a name), but it’s a great way to take a peak at...
Status on all the new messages:
Hey everyone, I just had my inbox bombed (mostly because @jeb_ tweeted about us). This is just a quick heads up (I’ve got a midterm to get to in an hour) that I’ve received all of your guys’ messages and I’ll get around to replying to each of them. In the mean time, here’s some basic info: -If all of you guys joined and played concurrantly, the server would lag...
Squid Server is Alive
Over the past few months, the server has been up and kept up to date, with minimal plugins (Read: 95% Vanilla). I’m curious as to how many people that played here in the past still read this, and more importantly, are you interested in returning? If so, email email@example.com to say hello, and include your username. If there is players that would like to return, I will whitelist you...
Server Renewed Another Month
But I completely wiped the server along with all the plugins. There’s only a whitelist now (everyone who’s ever logged on to the server before can log on now). There’s no real rules, other than if I catch you excessively griefing, or someone sends in proof, I’m going to ban you. If you’d like a copy of the old world or pvp world, send me an email and i’ll create...
Future of the Server:
So, due to dwindling players and support, I’ve come to the conclusion that not many people want to play here or have the time to. So I’ve decided to do a sudo-vote. If you enjoy playing here, and want to continue to do so, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org You should also consider donating a few dollars to the server if you enjoy playing here, as I’ve put in over 100...
I've been busy...
I’m currently working two jobs, getting about 70 hours a week (plus or minus 10), so that leaves me just enough time to get a touch of rest each night before the daily grind. I apologize for being unable to log on to the server regularly, but without these jobs, I wouldn’t be able to finish my degree, have a social life, and pay for this minecraft server. I do however have a few days...
Server Back Up!
Huge DDoS attack is keeping the server down
Some dick is using a very large DDoS attack against the datacenter that hosts or server, so they’re lagging, but the datacenter is working on it. It’s out of our hands, and the hands ofthe company hosting our server. I was told it’s probably against servers not even used for minecraft, so all we can do is sit this one out. Horrible timing, seeing as we just settled, but it will...
We may get a subdomain so you guys can put words in the ip box instead of numbers, but this IP will still work and won’t be changing. (22.214.171.124 incase you’re wondering) We’re finally on a new server away from constant crashes. This one should be much more stable, and I have more control over it, I’ll try to add some scripts that run regularly, checking to make sure...
Final IP Change:
Due to our Hosting company frequently changing IP’s on us and giving us lackluster performance in terms of stability and such, I’ve changed hosting companies. The new ip is: 126.96.36.199 Default port. The server will be down for about an hour or so tonight while I get the ball rolling, but you should expect more stability.
Follow us on Tumblr, Twitter, or Facebook.
Go to treesquid.tumblr.com and you can find our Twitter and Facebook pages on the right hand side.
New IP, AGAIN. Sorry!
188.8.131.52:25616 That’s the new IP and port, these assholes changed it again on me without letting me know. I’m looking into a new hosting service as I’m tired of this shit.
