Kilo’s first Video: Minecraft Skyblock

Yes, it’s true. While I have been apart of Kilo Tango videos in the past, I have never made my own video. That is, until now.

My first video is out and it is of me showing off my progress in Skyblock. Skyblock is a level you can download for Minecraft (no mods required). Without giving too much away, I can tell you the level consists of: a 3 deep L shaped chunk of dirt with a tree, a bucket of lava, and ice block with a 3x3x3 cube of sand in the distance. Everything is floating 65 blocks in the air. If you fall off, you fall straight into the abyss and die.

The point of skyblock is a challenge survival level: Everything is available to keep you alive, you just have to figure out how to utilize it all!

Anyway, that’s out there now, showing my progress as of 11/21/12. Be sure to leave a comment on the video. I really do care what you think!

DayZ and TFC Servers

We are proud to announce our brand-new DayZ and Terrafirmacraft servers!

DayZ Server is called [UK] Tea and Crumpets [Private Hiv, Vet, GMT -10] 1.7.2.6 – hosted by Tsohost.com. If you cannot find it in the server browser you can remote connect with the IP: 195.62.29.229 and using the default port (2302). As you could probably guess, the server is running on it’s own private hive!

We also put up a server for the Minecraft mod Terrafirmacraft, with Smart Moving. The IP address is 195.62.29.229:25571.

Our Tech minecraft server will be moved to this box some time in the near future.

Teamspeak moved;Minecraft down

Our host for Teamspeak and Minecraft has discontinued the lease on his server. Backups have been made, and Teamspeak has been moved to a new server. Minecraft will be down for some time, however.

If you cannot connect to the TS server using the subdomain ts.kilo-tango.net, connect to odd-sock.co.uk. The DNS has been changed to reflect the IP change, but will take some time to propagate.

kilotango.net and Minecraft 1.9

Kilo-Tango has purchased the domain http://kilotango.net to make it easier to access. You no longer need the hyphen!

Our Minecraft server has also been updated. With the release of the 1.8 update and many new features, including a new map generation system, we wanted to generate a new world. Over the next month or so we will be splicing some of the biggest projects from our previous world into the new one (such as the amazing Battleship created by Aur0ra145 and InsertEvilLaugh). The server was also updated with the pre-release of 1.9.

TeamSpeak Downtime

Today the server that hosts our TeamSpeak went down. Unfortunately, we do not have TeamSpeak set to auto-start, when the server comes back up.

We are having some trouble getting the auto-start script to work, but TeamSpeak is back up while we work out the problems.

In addition, due to the outdated nature of our WordPress-PHPBB3 integration plugin, I have disabled it. If you wish to post articles to the blog, you will now require a separate account. Please contact me if you are interested in making blog posts.

Downtime all done! Kilo-Tango Roadtrip Series

We have finished switching server providers and should not have any more scheduled downtime.

 

On a much lighter note, Craig (Alpha) has arrived in America, and our roadtrip officially begins on Monday! We will be keeping you updated on our travels throughout the roadtrip. I will also add all of our stops to a google calender, and post a public link! If you would like to keep up to date with us you can check our twitter feed (twitter.com/ktcommunity), watch this blog for updates, or check the forums!

Battleship Finished!

With the effort of InstertEvilLaught and Aur0ra145, a full scale reproduction of the USS Iowa was completed in the Minecraft server a week ago. The project took over 14,000 blocks of smooth-stone to complete and was worked on by the entire community.

The ship features multiple decks, three full-size gun turrets and access to all portions of the ship. Being situated southeast of spawn. Hop on the inter-island railway and visit InsertEvilLaugh and Aur0ra145 at their battleship.
