To get development completed faster for a release. We will be taking DvZ and Skywars out of development to release SurvivalGames on the initial update release, and DvZ and Skywars will come out between 1-2 months after... Why? Because it gets the update out faster, and for us to get a faster release and make Skywars and expecially DvZ to a perfect stable server with a lot to offer, development on expecially DvZ is going to take a while.
Follow the twitter, I've already said this before.
As we inch closer and closer to the update players obviously are interested in how donation ranks are going to work. So here it is.
There are 3 ranks on the entirety of CraftGasm, Plus, Epic, and Legendary. That's it.
Current ranks will be transfered over to their respectable price range rank (upgraded of course) and rank prices re not finalized yet, so I can't tell you what you will be if you have a rank.
If you have Plus, Epic, or Legendary once the release happens you get rewards on *deep breath*
Hub(yes there are hub rewards now), Factions, Vanilla, Skyblock, Creative, Dwarves Vs Zombies, SkyWars, SurvivalGames, and every other future server we release.
You can donation for monthly or permanent access to these ranks, and they yield just as many rewards per server. Each rank will litterally give over 50 rewards, command, abilities, etc although they are being made to not restrict non donators at all. This server will not be...
To speed up development to get a release out for everyone for all of the new content, I am actually cutting the development for the update of Skywars and SurvivalGames until a release is out with all of the other servers. Why am I doing this? Well here is why.
Since I announced this release way too early and donations are not coming in, we're running out of money for development and have to get a release out so you guys see all the features... (even though if you donate now itll be cheaper for you )So we can make some money to pay off our developers and get the ball rolling in beta testing.
Also I just want to say this is only the first half of development. And entire arcade development is scheduled with about 7 minigames and two new core servers including a prison server.
Just a quicky update to you guys. FOLLOW THE DANG TWITTER I post stuff there all the time haha.
Hey guys. I grabbed a twitter account I'm going to be using personally and for the server. I rarely push updates to the website here anymore since I'm busy with development and managing the update projects. If you want information about the update and other Cg information regarding whatever, want to chat with me about anything, or just get to know me a bit. Follow the twitter. I'll be using it quite a bit.
With all of the features in mind that will be coming to the server I feel it is needed to purchase new servers for us. Servers with a higher performance rating that will handle the spike of new players after this update is completed. My estimate is that after the server's massive update completes we will start seeing 2,000+ players online at a time. And of course with numbers like those we need to somehow process it all efficiently to gain a no lag experience.
I went and bought 5 new dedicated machines to run everything on. Specs are below for those that understand it.
Each server contains the following:
15TB BW uplinked at 100Mbps
Also this new purchase means ALL of our servers and services are located in Pheonix. This means you will experience barely any latency at all LITERALLY. Our servers will be more spread out, have more space, and more resources.
Tonight I will be switching all of the data over to these new...
Hello everyone, I'm pleased to announce another massive update incoming! What I have planned it to take our servers and begin making them more professional looking, feeling, and more or less visually appealing. In a short paragraph here I'll explain very small details for those who do not want to read the entire thing, and you can read below for all of the details. This update will span over 3 months time.
The plan as I said is to make things visually appealing which means each server will be given a new spawn completely custom built by an amazing builder names Notux. You can view his youtube and PMC profile that showcases some of his work here: http://www.youtube.com/user/NotuxCreations http://www.planetminecraft.com/member/notux/
Also the Parkour server, and the KitPvP server are being discontinued. They take up server space and are rarely used or populated. They are also no longer an interest of mine to keep running. There will be parkour in our new hub. Read...
From Dec 20 to Jan 1 everything in the donation store is 25% off!

Also just to mention, I'm flying across the country to visit family for the holidays. Tonight I will be bug fixing everything and hope the servers stay on throughout my time out. I will set up all my scripts and backups properly. Everything should run fine. Also skyblock item frames will be fixed.
Hello, this announcement is to start my schedule properly!
Every Thursday will be deemed CraftGasm's bug fix day. Every Thursday each server will be completely updated properly . The reason for this is because everything is so jumbled. If I set a specific schedule for things like this they actually get done. So every Thursday I will update everything and fix as many bugs as possible at that time.
So here is how it will work. Each server will be given a 30min downtime during that day. During that time all the server's plugins, and core builds will be updated to their latest builds and in-game bugs will be fixed as best as possible. Error reports will be scanned and everything will be fine and dandy.
This schedule will help keep the servers lag free, and bug free.
At the end of the 30min downtime for each server the entire CraftGasm network will be shut offline for a total of 10min to completely reboot and reset all of our machines and network settings. So they are completely fresh...
Hello everyone! This is a new game server we have opened for the new game Starbound! If you own the game and are interested in joining you can join by this ip: play.gasmuniverse.net

You can vote for the server here: http://starbound-servers.net/server/125/vote/

You can also sign up and bump up this thread on the Starbound forums. This is the absolute best way for you guys to help me. This is even better than voting! Click on the link and go ahead and post whatever you'd like on the thread. Ask questions, comment on the server, say anything you want! It all helps a lot more than you guys think....
