    Hosting Switch

    Hello everyone,

    Sorry for the extended downtime over the last week, we had an emergency with the hosting provider and had to transfer everything to new servers.

    The servers are now hosted in central Europe (Finland), so ping for Americans will be much greater and ping for Europeans will be much lower. Sorry or you're welcome depending on where you are.

    If you find any bugs, please make a bug report immediately.

    Future of Enlighten

    Hello everyone, so there have obviously been a lot of questions regarding the future of Enlighten and many rumors or just simple misunderstandings that have been circulating. I want to address those and get everyone up to date on our current situation and plan for the future. I will start by saying this, Enlighten does not have a shutdown planned for the future. Many jumped to this conclusion when Dash simply stated that without further development he expected the server to come to a close sometime in early 2022, this is true if we were to do nothing. However, we plan to fight to keep this server running and have been trying to come up with a road map to have the server evolve into something new, something better. We have reached out to those that may be able to assist now that Dash has moved on to another endeavor, an endeavor we wish him the upmost luck in fulfilling and we hope to see him grow even more. Currently we want to try and bring small and more feasible updates to bring new content to all of you but until we do we want to help those who want the server to stay, all of those that are trying to create events or bringing other creative ideas to help engage players on the server. We want to evolve Enlighten into something new and move passed that of being simply "Lynix's Minecraft Server" and we ask for everyone who has grown attached to the server and the community to do something about it. As a joke I made in our staff group chat I want you all to ask not what your server can do for you, ask what you can do for your server!

    Key takeaways for those that don't want to read this...
    - There is NO plan to shut down the server
    - We still want to provide updates
    - We want all of your creativity in creating things for the server such as simple events
    - We believe that this may be a much needed time for growth for the server, certainly not the end
    - We love the community and hope that everyone that shares our sentiment can aid us in helping to improve the server like never before!

    Thank you all,
    The entire staff team

    Minecraft 1.17 Update

    Hello all,

    UPDATE 6/24/21 - Enlighten now supports 1.17 connections!

    Minecraft 1.17 Part I released today! Very exciting news. Unfortunately, Enlighten will not be supporting 1.17 logins for the time being, there are multiple reasons for this. 1.17 makes significant changes to client<->server transaction packets, which are heavily used by our Anti-Cheat, as well as other protocol-breaking changes that need to be accounted for before going ahead with the update.

    I'm not saying 1.17 will never be supported, just that it will take a bit. Expect an update in a week or two on the topic.


    Enlighten is Back

    Hey all,

    I'm finally home from my trip, and after a night of debugging issues and implementing new systems, Enlighten is finally back.

    The lobby & minigame instancing system has been completely rewritten in Java, and load balancing is now controlled by MasterControl.

    Because of this, lobbies now appear as "dynamicserverXXXX" instead of "lobbyX" when you join them. In the lobby switcher and scoreboard you can see the real lobby name.

    The auto-rejoining feature has also been modified. You no longer rejoin the server you were last in, but rather the lobby type for the gamemode you were playing. For example, if you were playing SMP you would rejoin the MAIN lobby. If you were playing SkyWars you would rejoin the SkyWars Lobby. (Soon™)

    The server may be in maintenance sporadically for the next few days as we deploy updates to our new instancing system.

    Minigames like SkyWars and Duels are currently down, as they're being adapted to use our new instancing system and bug tested.

    Apologies for the extended downtime, there wasn't anything any of us could do about it.

    An update on the state of the Network

    Hello all,

    As you may have noticed the network is currently offline, I'm going to do my best to explain why, and give an estimate on when it will be back.

    At ~10pm PST May 15th, our main dedicated server malfunctioned and started reporting that its resources were depleted, despite having an abundance of free memory, cores, and storage. I have only had this happen three times in the past, and in my experience it requires a full restart of the dedicated server.

    The issue there is that I'm out of town on vacation for the week, and I can't login to the server remotely to restart it since we have lots of security in place.

    When I get home I'm doing to do a deep dive into the server logs to try and discover what potentially caused the incident, because it is a big deal.

    With that being said, the network will stay down until at least May 22nd/23rd, when I am home and able to diagnose and mitigate the issues properly.

    The forums seem to be thankfully be unaffected by the server issues.

    Thank you for your patience, and my apologies that this can't be fixed sooner.
