Hello, my lovely-lovely friends, loyal community members, and rat-tastic rats! Today is a tough day for myself and Bannah. We’ve been talking about options for the server for months now and we’ve come to a decision that we feel Lunarvale has reached the end of her road. We started this server on December 5th, 2015 and had no idea it would last as long as it has but we’re blown away by how much commitment the community has given it. It seems Minecraft survival servers are kind of dying out in popularity and we’ve known this for a while but myself nor Bannah have time to actively promote the server as we used to. The incredibly gracious community we have is what kept the server going for so long and making it the special place it is. Because Bannah and I no longer have time to dedicate to the server, we feel that keeping it up any longer would become hard and more stressful for us both. Neither of us has time to invest in the server anymore since my education and her job are very demanding and keep us too busy. We will never able to thank any of you enough for your contributions to the server and the community.
The server will be up until August 30th. After that, I will be uploading the server map to the website. Before then I suggest you save coordinates to your home and use the schematica mod to save your builds in case something goes wrong with the map save, as MC is not the most reliable. > Tutorial Link Here <
A few things will also happen in the last month the server is up:
- Everyone has access to /fly and /god
- Access to switch to Creative or Survival game mode with /gmc /gms
- Clear your inventory with /ci
- /Fix and /Setwarp will now be $1
- Everyone will have access to artmaps.
- The cosmic items kit will be up for receiving every 5 days.
The Lunarvale Discord will be staying up, but at the end of the month, the website and web-store will be gone.
Special note to the community: You have all made me laugh, made me snort, made me filled with happiness and given me a true feeling of what belonging can feel like. All of you who stuck with us are incredible and so many of you will cross our minds every once in a while. I sincerely hope you all take this news as something that was not avoidable. I offer my advice to love blindly, always find the fun and don’t let growing up scare you cause no one ever actually does.
Special note to my staff: Some of you have been here so long and some of you not as long as I’d have liked you to have been. Without you, the server would have shut down years ago and I just can’t put into words how much I appreciate your efforts to get on and have made the server a better place daily.
A last appeal: If you recently bought something from the webstore I urge you to not charge me back as you will only be putting me in debt. I already have school loan debts and have been paying to keep the server up for months now from my pocket. Please do not charge me back. If you are really upset with me about this please message me through discord and let’s see if we can talk something out.
