Bukkit is back with a whole new 1.8 face

After the long wait, a version of Bukkit has finally been updated for 1.8!!

Last night we installed this update along with a few simple plugins to help with the basic server operation.

  • pTweaks - To help reduce lag
  • Permissions - To get ranks back (No permissions actually given yet)
  • IRC - To continue our IRC-Minecraft communication
  • MyHome - To help out with players setting homes. Homes can be set by using a bed.
Planning is currently underway to work out which direction we want to take the server now that we have plugin support back. If you have any suggestions or ideas please feel free to let us know in the forums.
Till then,
Happy Minecrafting!

Updating

It is that time of the year again. We have designated this weekend as website update weekend!

You may have noticed a bit of downtime on our forums today. We ran into some issues with updating (absolutely unexpectedly! :P). But don't worry. We have succesfuly updated our forums to new phpBB 3.1.1. No (custom) extensions/plugins (like Steam info) nor theme yet, we will be working hard on that to bring it back ASAP.

Sorry for the downtimes, we will try to minimize them as much as possible. Cheers!

 

(Yes, update weekend will definitely turn into update week without any doubt!)

TF2 Halloween 2014

The Halloween server is back!

You can find the server at IP 85.17.60.96:27035

The cursed events server will be running the new map once they release it.

Enjoy!

TF2 & CSGO Sourcemod/metamod updates

Last night VALVe released updates for both TF2 and CSGO which broke all Metamod/Sourcemod enabled servers.

We've updated metamod and sourcemod with the latest available snapshots which fixes the crashing issues.

Update: Sourcemod remains broken on CSGO for now

Update 2: Sourcemod has been fixed on CSGO now as well, another update was required

CS:GO server graph

What a server without a graph... right? right?! RIGHT! A graphless server...

CS:GO shall no longer be a graphless server from now on.

Hereby I present you... A graph...

The Minecraft 1.8 Update!

The long awaited 1.8 update for our minecraft servers is finally here. We'd like to thank our staff for their work on preparing the map along with the community for being involved in the discussions leading up to the release.

You can join the server at: smp.specialattack.net

To read more about the new server check out the forum post.

Counter-strike global offensive server

We're happy to report to you that we now have a CS:GO server up and running.

Through our "host your own game" program for our members we now have Frosty in charge of this project. Frosty will be hosting this server together with his friend Dirros.

The server will run in "casual mode" and can be found at IP 85.17.60.96:27055 "Specialattack.net :: BananaHeads".

Enjoy playing!

SSL fixes

After our conversion to HTTPS only we suffered from some bugs which now have been fixed by our techteam.

  • Fixed forum registration not working (captcha wouldn't show)
  • Fixed user avatars not loading
  • Fixed attachments not loading
  • Fixed embedded youtube clips not loading
  • Fixed SSL warning on the forum for external steam content (now cached locally)
  • Fixed all other content on the websites to load https versions instead of http
Unrelated to the HTTPS conversion, but fixed nevertheless:
  • SpA points activation page not loading correctly

SpecialAttack.net now fully secured by SSL

We've implemented SSL across all our website and services where possible.

From now on you should automatically get redirected to the HTTPS version of all the specialattack related websites such as the front page, forums, etc.

In addition to this change we've also replaced the SSL certificates of our mail server, mumble server and VPN gateway.

By implementing SSL security you can now safely browse our websites and use our services on public networks without being afraid that your data such as your login credentials can be sniffed by an unwanted attacker.

If you notice any content stopped working, please report this to us and we will fixed it as soon as possible.
