Some Exciting News!
Hi there fellow survivalist! There's going to be some major stuff coming to the server in the form of one big update very soon. We've heard and gathered your requests, thoughts, ideas, and formed them into what will hopefully be the ideal survival experience for everyone. With months in development, this will easily be the largest update to the server since the initial launch nearly 2 years ago.
As you might already be speculating, the update will unfortunately not be carried over to the current world; instead, a new and further unique one will be present to aid the contemporary features. It's important to note that the current world has been running strong for well over 18 months now, and it wouldn’t be as presentable or fitting for an update of such capacity. It's not recommend that you start any new projects at this point, but rather share or build upon what has already been created.
Hopefully you can sympathize with this reasoning regarding the world, and look forward to a fresh and unique new experience. There's no fixed release date yet, but you can expect to see the update in around a week, generally aimed to launch before August. Stay tuned!
Minecraft 1.12 Update
As many of you have likely noticed, Minecraft 1.12 "World of Color Update" was released earlier today with a plethora of exciting new features added to the game. As with any Minecraft update, we try our best to deliver support for the new versions as early as possible, and we're very close to completing all necessary updates on our behalf for the transition to Minecraft 1.12. The transition may happen as early as tomorrow depending on the availability of the server software, although it will more likely take place on Friday of this week. I'll be sure to keep you posted on any further updates regarding the transition.
Elytra Firework Boosters
After a few months of questions regarding the disabled elytra firework boosters, we're pleased to annouce that they are finally being re-enabled tomorrow. The boosters will have a cooldown between uses in order to keep your flight time on a reasonable balance, however, there is always the option to obtain a donator rank which will gradually decrease the cooldown period; you can visit the webstore for more information regarding this. As with any new feature, please be sure to let a staff member know if any new problems arise.
Happy New Year!
Hi fellow players of the AlpineRealm, hope your holidays are going great so far! On behalf of the AlpineRealm team, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year, and briefly reflect on the changes and successes which contributed to make the server as enjoyable and unique as you know it today.
2016 has been a year of faith, a year of growth, a year of struggles, and a year of change; but as a whole, 2016 was a game changing year for the entire server, with the original server reset/remake, vast additions of new custom plugins, installment of new hardware, and many more additions that made AlpineRealm more enjoyable than ever before. AlpineRealm was originally established out of desire for people to find a enjoyable, unique, and friendly environment, after harsh personal experiences playing Minecraft multiplayer survival at places which did not offer a welcoming, supportive and friendly atmosphere. Although the server is not perfect, it's become a true honer to know that hundreds of new players have found enjoyment playing on AlpineRealm this year. The community, including YOU, and your dedication is what inspires me to continue making the server grow and stay polished every single day, so I sincerely thank you for that.
I hope that all of you found AlpineRealm to be a positively unique and memorable experience in 2016, and I passionately look forward to make the server even more enjoyable in 2017! Happy new year, and stay awesome!
The server downtime for the past few hours has been resolved. Sorry for any inconveniences caused.
The server is now updated to Minecraft 1.11; slightly earlier than expected, but conveniently just before the weekend! Along with the update, both the nether and the end have been reset, and the world will be expanding soon to allow for even more new structures to generate. There may be issues as with any server version update, so please inform us through the contact page if you find any. Enjoy!
Minecraft 1.11 Update
Minecraft 1.11 is now officially released, and you can now join the server with both Minecraft 1.10 and 1.11 clients! The server is expected to update fully later this week, as soon as the updated server API is released and all plugins are updated accordingly. If all goes to plan, the server should be running Minecraft 1.11 by Sunday. Stay tuned!
Server Downtime Resolution
The server has been down for the past few hours due to a back-end issue regarding a certain database malfunction. The problem has been now been fixed. Apologies for any inconveniences.
There is currently an ongoing issue with connecting to the server, due to an issue with Minecraft itself. If you cannot connect to the server, please be patient while this issue is being resolved. Updates will be posted if any new information comes up.
The issue is now resolved.
New Hub & Server Updates
A new and very simplistic hub has been implemented into the server. For now, it solely contains one portal to join the survival server, yet introduces new custom hub cosmetics. Over time, more hub cosmetics and mini-games will be introduced.
On another note, the creative server will now be closed. However, it may reopen in the future once appropriate accommodations are made.
