These are the new features of this host, and the reason we're switching over!
What does this mean?
At approximately 10:00 ~ 10:30AM EST today the server will go offline. The servers IP Address will be changed as soon as we can afford to change it. Though an IP Address can take up to 24 hours to propagate with our 'Prison.fatalitymc.com' to avoid any further downtime as soon as the file transfers are completed the temporary server IP will be given on the website, posted above.
If you have any problems connecting soon after or with lag on the server we will most likely switch back to our current host. This is simply a test run to see if it's a suitable host for the server!
Other than the temporary downtime no files will be altered & everything will remain the same. Please keep calm & spread the word about the update to all of your friends!
Was more than amazing to us, but it's time we implement some DDoS protection. If you're looking for a small test server, or even to start up a server they're definitely the place to start for those of you interested.
The server had been compromised on 2/16/14, these players dropped all kinds of items causing a huge mess on the server. This has been the first "full wipe" we've done in the existence of the server. We're sorry for the inconvenience; the only server backup we had was from 2/10/14. That file was just the Prison world itself and backups are now being done daily!
All staff will now have to use a new plugin "LoginSecurity", and all players also have the option to use it; if they believe their account could ever be at risk...
How to use it?
You will use this password every time you join the server.
/ChangePass <OldPassword> <NewPassword>
Change your password if you'd like.
This is what you'll type every time you join the server, before you can move.
The final result ended with resetting every players inventories, homes, vaults, money, and enderchests. No one will be getting their items back as there were 13,000 Unique total players and that's just not an easy number to hand things out to. Players ranked Peasant or higher will be able to use the reset kit; just a little advantage over the newbs.
All players kept their hard earned ranks on the server, all donators kept their ranks too! Do not panick, we would never reset the ranks if we didn't have to. If you would like your rank reset back to D-Block; and a nice fresh start go ahead and type...
/Mail Send SlappyGilmore <Reset me to D-Block?>
I thank everyone of you for staying dedicated to the server, and hope we can make a comeback from this awful mess. I know the server was starting to run around 30~40 players constant again with some intense advertising and a lot of money spent. My MacBook is being restored; hopefully removing any vicious malware/spyware. If anyone is interested in helping the server out, please don't hesitate to apply for a rank on our Minecraft Forums page!

Make sure all settings in game settings are like this to ensure reduced FPS Lag. Once Optifine is released you may use it! This will be the only mod we accept, ask otherwise.
