Top Monthly Town (April-May - 2018)
1. Estromont (50 Towny claim blocks & 3 Weeks featured town on /Sponsors)

Only1 States - Estromont, well what can you say in just a short amount of words? It is definitely one in which I didn’t expect at first to reach a town of the month but in recent visits it has been absolutely amazing and appeals to the theme greatly. The early 20th century was dark as it was nearing the end of the Industrial Revolution and getting closer to the First World War. This town is a sign that building a typical city in the form of those ages is possible. You don’t get to see this much, so it’s worth visiting! The credit of this town award goes to all the members and their determination to make a Town that truly is one of the best early 20th Century builds on the whole server! Well Done!​

Greetings Everyone,

I am here to inform everyone about the recent change of Ownership and what it means for Survival State. Currently, Seffora and I are working on Survival State's 2.0! We will be posting a giant changelog once we decide a date to release it on. We don't want any players to freak out. SurvivalState will still be the same, the only changes will be everyone having extreme amounts of fun! As for the title, what comes next? Seffora and I are here to make the server better for everyone and increase the player base. Regarding events, however, they will be hosted once a month. These events can have prizes range from Money to In-game ranks! Some things that you will notice right away are a forums change and a new logo. We have decided to place our new logo on the discord and the Minecraft server.
Regarding staff, congratulations to the following staff team members! Here are their well-deserved promotions!

Rexel (Helper to Moderator!)
Minion's (Helper to Moderator!)
Only1Gamer_Live (Sr.Mod - Admin)
Corvus_Magma (Admin- Sr.Admin)
Botrow (Mod- Sr. Mod}

Congratulations everyone!

Hello guys, I'd like to officially say that I'm stepping down as the owner of SurvivalState. I knew that this day would come and I guess that day is today. My goal has always been to aim for something big and in my opinion, I've managed to do a small part of that in SurvivalState. However, after years of playing Minecraft and being an owner, I've simply lost motivation and I want to move on from the Minecraft community and go for bigger goals. SurvivalState wouldn't be possible at all without the help of KyleKraft and I want to thanks him from the bottom of my heart for the opportunity he has given me. Other than Kyle I also want to thanks the staff members for the incredible work they have been doing. Without the touch of the staff members, I don't think SurvivalState would be where it is today and I really want to thanks Corvus_Magma (Matt) for sticking with me throughout the journey that I've had on Minecraft Servers. I'd like to say it has been a great journey with all of you, I've learned so much as an owner, however, it is my time to leave as the founder of SurvivalState.

But, the server is not closing. I've decided to sell the server because, in order for me to continue with the ideas I've got in mind, I need a budget and since I'm still young with no work I think that would be the best move for me to make. I also don't want to see SurvivalState just fade away. The new owners of SurvivalState are Seff & Adin. And with them in control, I hope SurvivalState will turn around and continue to head in a positive direction. I'd like to personally thank everyone who's been around since the very start it's been a great journey and we wouldn't be here without all your generous donations and support.

Notice: For anything server-related please do not contact me. You can either contact the new Owners or the staff members. I am no longer in charge of SurvivalState nor do I take any responsibilities.

Hello Survivors! To start off we wish everyone a happy Easter and we hope that you've enjoyed your time on SurvivalState. To make your Easter even better we've decided to have a 35% OFF SALE in the entire store, this is limited so be sure to check it out!

Update! This isn't a huge update, however, I will be going over what we've added in the past days. Many of you have suggested adding some type of a marriage plugin which got suggested and got many positive notes about it so we decided to do so. You can now marry each other by running the command /marry {name}. You can also select your gender which you need in order to get married and that can be done by typing /marry {Male/Female}. As you know marrying in real life can cost a fortune and well... we decided to add that part too. Marrying costs $500 {In game money}, a divorce costs $250 {In game money} and that's about it! We do plan to add marriage home as well as a gift feature, so keep your eyes on that!

Easter egg hunt! Yes, that's right. Another thing we have been working on is an Easter egg event. If you join the server right now you have the chance to go out in our maze and go on the hunt for Easter eggs. The Easter eggs will give you an egg which then you can use to trade for some good stuff. The event can be found in /Warp easter

Hello Survivors and welcome to this quick update! First, I want to apologize for not publishing this thread earlier. There have been a few questions here and there regarding this subject and that's what I created this thread so you guys can follow along and know what is going on.

However! Before we get there, we currently have a 30% OFF Sale running in our store. This will start today (March 7th) and will be running for a week straight (14th of March). So make sure to purchase what you've planned before this sale runs out. As you guys know, we don't usually have sales!

Now that we've got that out of the way I want to talk about top monthly voters and top towns. To start with, we're not going to be having top monthly voters for the upcoming 2-3 months. After that, it will continue as normal. The reason why we're not going to have it during this period is that we don't really have a good system when it comes to counting votes; we have to do it manually and the websites that you vote on resets every month, so it's hard to keep a look on when it ends. Therefore, we're going to be working on getting some type of a plugin which lists top monthly voters automatically both in game and on the website. What about top towns? This month has been skipped due to a few problems, however this month's top towns will be released! The topic is still "Vikings" and you can continue working on the current one or just leave it as it is if you think it's good enough. The same terms still apply so be sure to follow those.

That's it for today guys! Thanks for reading this.

Hello Survivors! (Small story of what occurred)
As you all know SurvivalState has been offline for almost a week now due to the recent crash events we experienced. This has been one of the worst bugs we have experienced so far. This type of crash was something that took some time to analyze and as well as fixing it. Along the way, we tried many things such as deleting corrupted chunks, broken chunks etc. However, this was something that wasn't helping and therefore it took more time than expected. Since yesterday we have been putting a lot of time into fixing this crash and we've finally managed to get rid of this bug! A high-velocity entity was causing the server to crash everytime a player loaded that specific chunk the mob was in, which in this case was a horse in the town Asydria. In order to get rid of this entity we had to download the map on a personal computer and then get rid of the entities in that area with a program called McEdit and we did so which fixed this problem, however, most of the mobs in Asydria has been removed but in order for the server to come back we had to execute this. If you live in Asydria and have lost your animals please contact an admin or higher and you'll get help with this.

Update 1.5
As you can see this update is all about optimization, better backend performance, and simply better server performance. If you are on our discord you've probably seen that we announced this. Now, while we were having this crash we took the opportunity to update a few server builds, plugins and as well as getting rid of broken/corrupted chunks as mentioned before. This will overall give better server performance and things will run smoother. As you guys also know we are planning on releasing ST 2.0 which will be a huge update for SurvivalState so why not prepare the server, right?...

Top Monthly Town (January 31 - 2018)
1.
Mountain (50 Towny claim blocks & 3 Weeks featured town on /Sponsors)
This Month was full of excitement (January 2018) with the addition of a broad range of new members joining! The theme of January was 'New Year, New Me' and Only1GamerLive has been checking up on a multitude of unique towns here on the ST Server! Mountain has amazingly fit the festive theme by reaching a whopping 100 members in their town and there is now competition to see if they could overtake Horizon! Not only have they reached this amazing goal, they have also expanded their town hugely since last year. With the introduction of a wide range of buildings, which can be browsed upon. The members have been entirely respectful to the members of the community and have opened a place for enjoyment to all! They are a pleasure to have in the community, well done for starting the year off with a BANG!

Top Monthly Town (December 31 - 2018)
1. Island (50 Towny claim blocks & 3 Weeks featured town on /Sponsors)
Over the last month (December 2017) Only1GamerLive have been checking up on the towns progress and have seen that they have had a very successful month in trying to fit the topic. They have amazingly fit the festive theme by making a huge Christmas tree with festive stockings around it for each member and have made a lovely sleigh in the sky with reindeers. However, their town is not only good-looking. It is also the members who have been entirely generous by making the stockings and giving out Christmas presents to members of the community! They are a pleasure to have in the community, well done for celebrating the festive cheer!

Hello Survivors. Today we have some great news. We are going to upgrade to a better dedicated-server. This means less lag, better performance overall (although there isn't that much lag), maybe new servers? Who knows. This upgrade will open a lot of new doors which will lead to some awesome stuff!

Now, in order for us to upgrade we need to transfer the files since this hosting doesn't support any type of upgrade. Therefore the server will be down starting from 30 November. There isn't a time-frame on when it will be done but be sure to check our discord to get the latest news!

Thanks
