I'm sorry :(

SolarXD Owner posted Nov 21, 14


It is with a sad heart that I announce the closing of EmberCraft.  It has been a long road filled with setbacks.  Our latest setback has effectively shutdown EmberCraft. That setback being the development of EmberIsles. 

Originally Fireball1725 took on the project and then abandoned it and EmberCraft. (Without Fireball we would have probably never have gotten started so he deserves many thanks) Then after some time passed we were able to pick up Unihedron and Blue_Blaze72. They took on several projects and finally picked up EmberIsles. They made amazing progress but life and school proved to be too much and progress slowed even though they had the majority of it done. 

Gene and myself decided on a gamble to use a company called puzl inc. They had some respected developers and I'd used them on a few other occasions for small projects.  They had quoted us a time and price that would work for us and we went ahead with it. Through some miscommunication the project ended up coming in well over price and late.  What was communicated as being done wasn't done and was missing the challenges and some finish work.  They stated it would take an additional $800ish and came up with a few options that would cost a bit less but none the less we were effectively bled dry with this project.

Due to my personal situation with medical bills and only being able to work 12-18 hours a week at my normal job(when I would normally work 50+) I am unable to fund the server out of pocket. I have noticed since my time on the server has virtually stopped that it has killed our player base. That in of itself has stopped shop purchases and the server is no longer able to support itself.  Perhaps when I am able to work fulltime again I can revive it but there is no guarantee and honestly it seems as if the server market is becoming continually hostile with changes at Mojang, bukkitdev, spigot, etc.

I wanted to thank our incredible staff. They stuck with me while I ran LUMC and they stuck with me while I ran EC. They are what made this an incredible and a safe place to play. I can't thank them enough.  I also wanted to thank Fireball for helping us get started and for being there when I REALLY messed things up :P.  I also wanted to thank XxGemxX and Blue_Blaze72 as they made some large contributions to EC that allowed us to provide some amazing hardware and clean bandwidth to play on.  I also wanted to thank our playerbase more than anything! Without you and your contributions we would have never come this far.  Again, I am very sorry and very saddened that it has come to this. Thanks again for an incredible year and for all of the incredible memories.

SolarXD and EmberCraft Update

SolarXD Owner posted Oct 16, 14


I just wanted to update everyone on my personal situation. I've received several messages asking if I have abandoned the server.  The answer is simply no I have not left the server.  I am currently dealing a medical situation involving damaged nerves on the left side of my back wrapping around to the front of my chest. I've been dealing with this situation that puts me in constant moderate to severe pain 24/7.  This has been ongoing for the last 4 months.  Because of this condition I have been avoiding stressful situations as it makes the pain worse.  I will be around as much as I can when I am feeling well as there is a pile of work to be done.


As far as EmberCraft is concerned things are still going along as normal. EmberIsles development is in FULL swing.  MineconSE will be happening later this month which will hopefully bring in more people.  We also have a few other smaller projects in the works which you'll be seeing soon.  Obviously due to my down time there are a few small projects that still need to be finished like the markets and server changes announced awhile ago.  So please keep telling people about the server to help us grow! The more players the better. The more rank purchases means the more devs we can hire and the more features we can have!

Thank you for taking the time to read this small update.  If you have any questions or issues please let us know.  If you do send me a message it may be just a little bit until I'm able to respond.

Cheers,
SolarXD

blah blah blah 1 year go blah blah things were tough blah blah... blah. Blah blah here we are blah. Just kidding! We just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your support through this last year. It sure was a tough one!


Now onto the winners of the EmberCraft 1 year anniversary giveaway! I was going to make a front page list but it was a long list so I just left them in the Google document. Some of the prizes have already been awarded. For the rest you will get a message via Enjin with information about your prize and how to redeem it.


>>>WINNERS<<<



There were several entries that were disqualified for entering of mains and alts, banned from the server, or were just junk entries. This removed a good few entries and as such some people have won two items. If you have any questions as always please just let me know and I'll do my best to answer them for you.  Happy EmberCrafting everyone! Thank you for one great year!

NOTE: Some of the messages will get to you tomorrow.  I have to do these by hand since they contain coupon codes. So that is a lot of messages I need to get out!

PS: There was a lot of stuff to do in order to get all of these to work properly so I wouldn't be surprised if I goofed up somewhere. If something isn't working please send me a PM and I'll fix it :)
