    Server Migration

    By Hevy911, in Home,

    Hey guys been a while since we did on of these. If you already couldn't tell we are transferring our servers to a different host. Now before everyone goes nuts, no all the servers will not go down at once, we will be transferring each server in phases, all of this will be through this evening and hopefully everything will be totally up and finished by tomorrow.
    Phase 1: Wizard Academy and Skyhype 
    Phase 2: CDA, All other JAC servers
    Phase 3: MySQL and Teamspeak
    Phase 4: Website
    With this new host the door of possibilities opens up, not only that but we are told that we will receive better performance and connection for our EU and US players, compared to our previous provider. We also get better specs with the host, running:
    Memory 128GB DDR4/ Ungrouped
    Hard Drive Configuration: 480GB Intel S3500 SSD + 2 TB SATA / Ungrouped
    Processor: 3.5Hz Hexa-Core E5-1650 v3 Haswell Xeon/ Haswell
    We have 2 of those, with DDoS Portection
    Thank you for your patience and support, if you have any question please leave a message on the forums or look for a staff member on our Teamspeak (ts.jacgaming.com)
    Sincerely, 
    Administrative Staff of JAC Gaming

    Just giving a brief update stating that CD:A is now up and running at the same IP CD:C was: cd.jacgaming.com

    If you see this because you need to post to become a survivor please go here.

    If you have general questions or comments please go here.

    Please read this to have a little understanding on what to expect that's different:

    So, as many of you know Crafting Dead UPDATED to Aftermath. It wasn't made on to a new pack. Since this is the case I figured I would just let everyone know now:

    CDC will be CDA. There will NOT be two servers. It came as a shock to me as everything I had previously read pointed towards a whole other pack being made. For this, I'm sorry. We're going to have to reset the world without much of any notice.

    THIS IS ALSO A GOOD THING. 


    CDA s upgrading to 1.6.4, this means a few things: First of all, Horses! AKA: Transportation other than walking!

    Also, we've been working really hard on some new builds, so CDA will have a fresh, new look. 

    Here's the downside:

    We're going to be down tonight, probably tomorrow too until late evening. I HOPE to have it together by then, but please be patient if it takes one more day. Believe me it WILL be worth it. 

    Now as for a few immediate answers: 

    Yes donor ranks swap over. The kits are being COMPLETELY redone, and will be updated ASAP in the store.

    No, your items don't swap over. Sorry. However we do have an AMAZING PVP arena which will have PLENTY of opportunity for loot.  

    Spawn will also have a new feel, and items are going to be a bit harder to come by. In the past, CDC has been a pretty easy place to find guns/ammo. Well, with the new pack, those items are going to be harder to find. This also means that the guns won't be cheap in stores. The one thing CDC has lacked as of late is a challenge. I intend to bring that back. 


    So, without spending much more time on this I will leave you with this; I will update as soon as CDA is open. It will be at the same CDC ip: cd.jacgaming.com

    See you soon. Get ready for a fight. <3

    That is right folks Wizard Academy is back after it's unfortunate corruption, now returning with its newest chapter. With updated mods, and fixed bugs this will be a new and enjoyable experience. Remember how the mini map didn't work, now it does, with a new map entirely. Other mods have been removed to optimize your experience on the server, Big question here, Will you be a great Wizard or a tyrannical Warlock, the choice is up to you.
    Thank you

    Correction to the last post-- We are back NOW! Had a bit of a hiccup and the world was corrupt and eating itself.

    However, the problem is fixed, and the server is open today! You will have access to a new kit and the server has Milbase, Prison AND the Pit back too!

    Also, we have a few things in the works for PVP arenas soon -- one will be a Splash, another you'll want to watch your footing and then next you'll want to find the best deal at!

    Another friendly reminder: The November contest is being extended to December 15th! You've got plenty of time to build! <3

    Also, just so you have a heads up on what Decembers is -- We will be incorporating the best build in to a temporary event area for the Christmas Slaying Event! There will be the new PVP arenas and the winner of the December Event? A $25 iTunes gift card among other things!

    Keep watch after Thanksgiving for more details on the December event!

    By Chicken, in Home,

    This is Chicken_Chaser99 your friendly Manager for the JAC gaming server of the modpack Crafting Dead Cure (CD:C)
    As alot of you may know we just recently had an error with the data in our box and lost a whole lot of stuff a big downer for everyone  we put out a poll for what to do with the situation and the people have voted for the server to start over new map new economy lot of stuff starting all over again! Well, I am here to say CD:C is back and better than ever! With a new spawn and some of our old favorite sites for awesome loot a great time PVPing or maybe just earning some pocket cash killing zombies we are ready for all to come back and check out everything we have done! Thanks for an awesome staff who helped get the process over smooth and quick I know everyone did their part to get us back on our feet as soon as possible! The server is not quite done yet we still have some of our old favorites to add in as well as some new ideas stirring in the pot for future builds and places to play. We hope to see you soon on CD:C and remember to suggest ideas for how we can continue to grow!

    Guess what time of year it is!

    It's November!

    So besides, turkey, stuffing, ugly sweaters getting dusted out and obnoxious family-- there's always good ol' CD:C. <3

    Well, a lot has changed recently on CD:C and I'm inviting all of you to come see the re-vamps we've done (and are still working on as well), try to escape the prison, see how far you can get in the mob arena, get you and your friends to have the best town, or better yet, just show them all up! We're still holding almost daily events, we've got our build shop open (more PVP, less mining!), and we even have a few builders kits to help you out if you just love to build, and I'm throwing out a new contest this month and it's as followed:

    BEST CD:C TOWN OF NOVEMBER

    Rules:

    1. It has to be ABOVE ground.
    2. It has to be made by November 28th.
    3. It has to be within the soon to be new world border!
    4. It has to be a TOWN, not just a single building. Walls are optional.
    5. If you purchase the new town donation you can use the fence (kinda unbreakable, no choice there xD) but you must rebuild your town yourself. Using the cookie-cutter build we give will not be counted.
    6. If you want to be qualified, you need to get a hold of me (whooo) to come see your town once it's finished.
    7. If you've already been building a town that's okay -- you have an advantage.

    Judging will take place between Nov 29th and 30th and the winner will be announced on December 1st!

    PRIZES:

    Winning town will be displayed here and the town will win $300,000.00 In game money to split, 10 Police Loot Spawners, 10 Military Loot Spawners and 10 Med Loot Spawners to add to their town/base! (Hint-hint, this will give a BIG advantage  to Decembers big event! )

    So, without further hesitation... LET THE BUILDING BEGIN! <3
