1.8 minecraft vanilla white-listed server is up.
1.8 minecraft vanilla white-listed server is up.
If you haven’t stayed on top of the news for minecraft, here are a couple links to catch you up.
In short Mojang has been doing his best to make his software company look attractive to Microsoft who will be buying him out at $2 billion dollars worth. Problem is work on bukkit (our server software) has ceased and been tied up in courts. A majority of the bukkit team decided to leave after the MS announcement and even though spigot is “making updates”, the writing on the wall leaves me to believe that we are all going to be moving toward realms, and mojang “only” type plugin api.
What does that mean for GRX3 networks?
Rather than go away and shutdown we are going to accept change hopefully early and move forward. Starting the 17th of Sept at the latest we will be putting up a brand-new 1.8 server that is completely vanilla and will be using a whitelist and moderators to keep the community safe. What about the old 1.7.10 network? We will keep it around and in hopes that one of the community developers spigot or bukkit out to 1.8 so they can be upgraded. But if we go into October with still no updates, we might just shelf the network in lieu of a good 1.8 server.
Look here for future updates!

So the big news is an upgrade to our network. We condensed down to our most traffiked servers and added the fun factions server. However there is a twist, it’s a vampire factions server, so you have vampire powers which comes with a whole list of neat abilities!
The other big news is Ranking and Donation packages are done and now are system wide. So you will have the ranks titles, the abilities and more. Check out now and feel out the new trails, hats, diguises, emotes, and many other features that make the game more playable and fun!
As always we have a lot of updates and changes as we are growing. Below is some of the new additions and what to come.
Congratulations to our new staff drugsxpeacexlove for becoming a moderator of the Freebuild server. Also congrats to Netherworld12345 and death250e for becoming Helpers.
As always keep up the voting and bring your friends to play. We will be giving out a new rank soon for person who votes the most, as well as person who refers the most people to the server.
Lastly if you do recordings, youtube videos and the like, we would like to chat with you. We are looking at setting up some ranks for people who do good recordings. Let us know email@example.com

Greetings, Our well established server needs the following staff to help with demand.
If you message any staff on the forums, support or in game about your application , you just reduced your chances by 100%
If your application is successful you will be notified by email a staff member.
All applications are looked at and reviewed by a staff member within 7 days, if you are not notified within these 7 days the likelihood is that your application doesn’t meet the requirements required for staff. Please don’t instantly re-apply or continuously update your application, in around 1 month time make a new application with more information for a higher chance of being selected.
Note that if you lie on any part of your application, you reduce your chances heavily (this includes your age/ GMT/ Bans etc.)
You must post your application in this thread.
Say YES if you understand that asking a staff member about your application means an instant rejection of your application
Age – You must be 15 to apply. If you are younger than 16 you will be denied. If you are older than 15, erase the red text, and type your age.

Application Process Explanation
We have a team of moderators who are well trained to know what we are looking for based on our current demands. Such demands as age, language, time zone, and availability can be the cause of some applications being denied. This does not mean that you are not qualified for the duties, but, that what we are looking for is not exactly presented on your application at the time of our response.
We send a message to people we consider could be a benefit for our team. Such a message should be considered that you could be chosen, but still have a chance you won’t. If one of our team members likes your application, then all of us have to agree. Our team may reject your application for certain flaws and things we find that may interfere with your position. If you are denied, you will also be contacted via the inbox. If you disagree with our decision, try not to make a big deal about it. Show us you can be mature about it by keeping calm about it. Complaining about it will permanently deny yourself for further application.
A cool tip for your future applications:
Try to be unique in your format. Show us that you can be confident in yourself by following your own guideline.
NOTE: If you do have questions regarding the decision made about your application please send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
Send applications to email@example.com
Lot’s and Lot’s of updates this month. We are pushing to get the community growing again and we will need your help.
As always we hope you are having an excellent time on our network and please if you have any suggestions, issues, or what have you please feel free to contact us using the form above or email firstname.lastname@example.org
First if you tried to connect to any of our servers you will notice a message.
“Please connect using mc.grx3.com”
This is because we are now serving using mc.grx3.com as a hub. This means our play server, creative, hardcore, and skyblock all are linked through this server and address.
When you login to mc.grx3.com and you want to go to the play server you can use the compass
/compass, or /server play
You can also try out some of the other servers from any by using the /server command.
We also added a new server for SKYWARS with 2 more coming online
If you have any questions or problems feel free to contact us.
As you may know there is some commercial changes to mojang and minecraft. These will directly affect how our server donation perks system works as we will comply with these recent EULA changes.
Our play server as of August 1st will have all the game play modifications removed. Users with accounts before the date will get to retain all their abilities, but after August 1st these ranks will no longer be available and a new list of ranks will be out for people to use.
Our hardcore and Skyblock server will also have similar changes taken, but users with credits and ranks will retain there current status, just no additional perks will be rewarded.
We will be adding in mini-games, along with other cosmetic changes to give out perks to users that after August 1st continue to choose to donate.
Thank you and we look forward to bringing in the new updates.
The good news: It’s back up and 99% of the world is in-tact.
The bad news: 5 regions where regenerated as they where corrupted. Some of you will be affected and we apologize. It was a circumstance out of our control and we will be taking additional measure to prevent it in the future.
The problem was with NBT corruption. In short the program misplaces information and refuses to start disorganized. There is no way known to manually fix this problem and what has to be done is the most recent region files to be updated get deleted and the server is allowed to regenerate those from the seed algorithm of the map.
Well the worse circumstances that could of happened did. During a routine upgrade we corrupted files within the play.grx3.com world files and it no longer wants to load the old world. What does this mean? Potentially a world reset. We have several backups, as well as some region program fixers that we will be attempt over the next several hours/days to bring it back up. But if we can’t resolve these errors we will have to just restart fresh with a brand new world. What happen to all my stuff? Permissions will remain the same but your in-game items, claims, stats, all will be nullified if a solution doesn’t present itself. Our apologizes as we did our due diligence here and have several tech’s trying to solve the problem but we are preparing you all for the worse. We will keep you posted here, in the mean time try some of our other servers like hc.grx3.com or sky.grx3.com
