UPDATE 11/06/2017 23:59 CEST: Qubion is currently open to the public again. We have revoked access to the BigPlot world from all of the regular members to prevent the server from crashing. Once we get the issues in the BigPlot world resolved, this access will be restored. Once again, your plots are safe in the BigPlot world. For the time being, only the SmallPlot world is available. Original post: Hello everyone! This is a quick update on the current server maintenance that has been going on at the Qubion Creative server. Last weekend we noticed that the server crashed quite a lot for unknown reasons. We were able to trace these crashes down to a corrupted chunk located in the BigPlot world. When this chunk got loaded, the server would simply shut down and not reboot. Supposedly the cause of this corrupted chunk has connections with the downtime we had at the start of last week. So why have we not gone ahead and delete / regenerate the corrupted chunk? Well, due to the nature of the SmallPlot and BigPlot worlds, this is very hard. These worlds are rather old and have gathered quite a bit of file size over the years. This makes it extremely difficult to remove the corrupted chunk via an external program such as MCEdit. This means that Qubion Creative has been in maintenance mode (whitelisted) for the majority of this week, allowing Qubion Builders to continue their building in the private BT world. So, what is next? We are currently still looking at a good way to get rid of the corrupted region, though this has been delayed a bit with the release of 1.12. We currently are not sure how long this would take. Additionally, we are investigating in opening the server to the public again but not allow access to the BigPlot world for the time being. This is something we will update you all later this weekend on when we have done some testing. Hope this post contains enough information to update you all on the current situation. Please see the Frequently Asked Questions below for some more short and direct information. Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) Are my plot and rank safe? Yes, your plot and especially your rank will not be affected by the current issue. We have already reached out to the person who owns the corrupted plot and they are aware of the issue. When will Qubion open again? We are not sure yet. We will release more information on that once we know it. What is the status on Qubion 1.9? We are a bit delayed with the release of Qubion 1.9, as most of you are aware. This is also caused due to the somewhat odd nature of Qubion compared to other gamemodes on Shotbow. The release of 1.12 will slow this down a bit more too. As stated in some earlier threads on these forums, Qubion would be one of the first gamemodes to fully go to 1.12 but we have yet to investigate into the possibilities of this and no action towards Qubion 1.12 has been taken yet. Are you guys currently updating Qubion to 1.9 as well? No. Why is the server in "maintenance mode"? "Maintenance Mode" is simply another term for whitelisted. Only staff can join the server right now for testing purposes and building purposes as they have been instructed to not go to the BigPlot world.
