Just wanted to give a heads up that the official last day of the server will be October 14 (this sunday), and will close down around 8pm CST
A few people have been requesting world downloads, so here's a list of the 3 most recent worlds. I have a snapshot of world 6 from when we announced the closing (5/29), and I also have one from last night (10/11). I'll make both available for download once they are cleaned up. If anyone has the older worlds and wants to make them accessible to download, I can add the links here.

world 6 (current): Coming soon!

As I'm sure many of you have noticed (and have become frustrated with), I haven't had a whole lot of time to manage the server for quite a little while now. I've been getting steadily more and more busy with work and just life in general, and as a result the server and Minecraft in general has become less and less of a priority for me. Obviously this doesn't quite work if your administrating a server, as it does take a significant time investment to keep it up to date and fun to play on. As such, and after speaking with SpaceBug, we've decided that the time has finally come to let the server rest in peace.
The server is paid out until October, so there's plenty of time for people to still swap contact information, new servers to play on, etc etc. In fact, I'd highly encourage people to share servers that they enjoy playing on below, so others can find new Minecraft homes (you won't be banned for advertising, I promise!). As far as I know, the forums won't go away at all, but I don't have any control over the forum site (Space runs that exclusively). I'll put the official close date on the site once the hosting site lets me know when our server is due for renewal.
It's been quite a lot of fun running this awesome server and want to thank those dedicated players who have stuck around until the end. Can't say it was wonderful all the time, but definitely met some great players who I hope will keep in contact. Hopefully I'll get more free time in the future at some point and can make spin up my own server!
If anyone wants to try and spin up their own version of SpaceBugSMP to carry on the legacy, I'm more than happy to help out and offer advice. However, I won't be able to do any hand holding really, so you'll need to have a decent understanding of how to run a server to start out with (I don't want to try to teach anyone how to admin a server).
Thanks for everything guys, and keep crafting!

This is true unless someone else picks up the server ;-;
It was a beautiful time, and I will treasure the memories made on this server forever, be they bad or good. So long, and thanks for all the fish.
PS: if there could be a public-access download for each world that would be a good send-off.
Sun City always welcomes new members!

I feel the possibility of becoming emotional now is quite high, therefore I will give a proper response when I'm back home on Saturday. This is terrible news to me but I understand, all good things come to an end, just didn't want this to happen at all. I just turned to my Brother (pig70500705) and gave him this tragic news, only to be given the reply "I don't really care" wish I could be numb too. 🙁
I fail at all things. Kill me now.

As Thomasshh says, this is the kind of news, that have a much bigger emotional impact than it should on me.
This server has been the only real server, to me, amongst the tens of thousand servers available out there.
As FamBoje mentions this was the very first server we joined, and that dates back to early MC version 1.5.2 so it has been quite a while...
In that time I've met many players, which I'd like to thank, and that being everyone I've talked to, helped out one way or another, people who have helped me, people that I've been arguing with or even people I've been fighting. Y'all made Spacebug something special to me, and some of you I'm still lucky enough to be able to call my friends, which I am grateful for.
This is sad news no doubt, but I understand the decision.
Something I want to say about new servers is that I have since MC version 1.6.4 had my own server which I never have fully released, and never truly invited other than close friends into.
About continuing SpaceBug, I doubt I could carry that massive pressure on my shoulders, but I'd be very happy to let all of you join in on my (slightly different) SMP server
(its a Work in progress, but if people want to try it out just contact me one way or another (contacting me through discord could be a possibility, The name is s follows: [Admin] Digi#2365)
Eventually, it will become open for everyone, so here is the IP address: play.autoauxilium.dk
It is going to be a strange time, without SpaceBug sitting at the very top of my server list...
Someone once typed in something clever here, what a shame that was my idea...

First, I am playing this server for almost a year and it really hit me when I saw this post. We (many old and new SpaceBug members) are in a discord together, the link digi sent, and playing also on other (minigame) server like hypixel.
I really hope digi's server will be active when it is fully released and that many SpaceBug member will join too and have fun together.
I want to thank all of you guys for having a great timeon this server together, even if we didnt like eachother. Friends from the start I joined, friends that I am playing with at this moment, everybody, a huuugeee thank you for your time on SB. I have never thought SpaceBug will end this shortly 🙁
I will never forget you guys and I hope to see you guys probably on the discord one time.

Would be lying if I said I didn't see this coming....
Been with the SpaceBug server through a handful of resets and enjoyed my time on all of them....really all I want to say is ty to Bec and the staff for keeping it going as long as it did and ty to the players who made it a fun place to be.
I wish everyone the best of luck in life and maybe I'll see some people around as we dive into the server list and attempt to find a server that can help fill the SP hole in our hearts.
Take care folks!

hey becja, just out of curiosity, can you give me info on the type of hosting needed to run a world like spacebug? I've got a dreamhost account that I've had forever (and barely use) and wondered what it takes to handle a world like this.
Sure thing. Here are the server specs we're currently using:
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4790K CPU @ 4.00GHz
Cores : 8
Cache : 8192KB
2 x 240 GB
Obviously this is a bit overkill if you're just going to run 1 normal world + end/nether, and only have a few plugins and players on at a time. The number of plugins you have running and the amount players you have online will be your biggest determining factor in how much Ram you need and how fast your processor will need to be. Disk size isn't kinda meh, just depends on how often you need to clean up old data

As sad as it is, I'm not surprised. Maybe this server wouldn't have gone downhill had it listened to the loud minority time after time. On top of that, there were a few corrupt staff members favoring players and allowing many to break rules. Staff didn't crack down on those that broke rules and created a toxic community, leading to some members telling me to kill myself for pvp. Even after filing a report with evidence of members such as the beloved digital_beast telling me to die, along with dynamicUK telling me to "die in a gutter", the report was simply closed since "I'm tired of having to read emails I get from posts on it" -Becja. Can't possibly punish the rule breakers telling me to kill myself, but it's apparently ok for the community to harass me every time I got on.
It was definitely time for this server to die. Have fun looking for my salt mine.

This has been my all-time favourite survival server. I'm sad to see it end. I learned a lot about minecraft from playing it, as I was pretty much a noob when I started. I'm going to miss going on raids with MasterLinkEpona. My best memories of playing minecraft are of this server.
Could you please make the download of the current world available, so that I, and many others, may continue to play?
Go Link, Go Legend of Zelda! Go Warrior Cats! Minecraft isn't as good as these but at least it's AWESOME!

It is a true shame that this has to happen but I choose to not view it as an ultimate conclusion but, rather, the start of a new chapter. Knowing this wondrous community, it will only be a matter of time before someone steps up in an attempt to continue the Spacebug legacy. 😉
Now, onto the sappy personal stuff:
I joined Spacebug SMP all the way back at the start of first world and, since then, I have seen drastic changes, players come and go, and the community and server itself evolve. However, as is most likely similar with many others, my experience was primarily social. Over these years, I have had many interactions with most players here. Shout outs to some of my previous good friends who've since parted ways such as xWrapp, miguel3333333, Galacticslushy, Vlinkar, and Chipz4Sale. Also, special shout outs to my close friends who I talk to nearly everyday; ChillJacob, Deven (Sponkeymonkey), Cat, Richard (The_Marauder), Red_Salmon, legoit, Gem3000, Dave (Epicbudderpug), Sunsprint, thomasshh, Alex (GoldBlooded) and Loki10023. However, my utmost regards go to my fellow staff members (both current and past) as well as Bec - you all made the server a wonderful place. To be completely honest, this server has been a huge part of my life and I'm honestly not certain where I would be if I didn't join all those years ago.
Best of luck wherever you all end up! 🙂

I know the majority of you see me as a troll, and I recognize that my "memes" go a bit too far sometimes, but in really do love people and I am all for forgiving past enemies and building bridges.
I BoomSauceNR, sincerely apologize for my caused grievances and being an aversion to society (except to BadmanSaphire). I apologize to Cat who's Nether Farm I griefed, I apologize to Dr. Pupper, Matt and WarriorDogBoy for being a beta Cuck and joining the hate Band Wagon on you guys (also challenging Dr. Pupper to a fight in real life :^O). I apologize to the staff for causing massive public outrage in the sense that I would the crucified if this was real life, I apologize to GoldBlooded for totally recking you-like-twice lel, I apologize to Sireatalot for betraying the group. I apologize to Nooget who I really don't know what I am apologizing for, but for some reason he blocked me. I apologize to PurpleMonkey for making your boyfriend quit the server. I apologize to SpaceBug himself whom I once reported because he TPed to me and gave me a diamond sword and claimed, "He's giving an unfair advantage to certain players." (Yes I really did try to report the owner of the server for trying to help me). I apologize for my mild racism (okay not really). I most of all apologize for making everyone on global chat endure my "Teutonic Order" monologues.
I'd like to thank my friend(s) who stuck by me when everybody else would've rather seen me banned... Thomasssh (I think) <3
This is my first world story:
When I first joined this server I wandered through it in the odd curiosity of a young boy exploring the world, when I settled down I settled next to Blob (though he wishes he forgot those days), until I was joined by Mitch, and we built an awesome gated community that included EpicButterPug (Until Mitch untrusted him from everything), that one guy named Bryce, that one guy named The Destroyer Something Something, DanieI and myself. Then for some reason we got into a massive fight with another group, though only Mitch, DanieI and myself fought in, the war made Mitch weary and untrusting, and he began to lose his way by joining a massive duplication scandal, and then was later permanently banned for something else. I then ostracized myself from the community Mitch and I built choosing to leave behind the sinful nature of its outcome. I then joined a half way house sponsored by the Mr. Bellicose and Brown_Tr0ut foundation. There they taught me how to read, write and assigned me a trade. Months afterwards my peaceful existence in a half way house was challenged by the grievances of the many players who protested the No PvP in Second World Edict, and then I later joined the No Two World Riots to peacefully demonstrate against the decision that would begin the decline of SpaceBugSMP (Yes this statement is meant to be an oxymoron). I among many other players choose to leave the server.
This story was very exaggerated and also very vague at the same time. I left out many details in between the events of the story - like there was this one time where this Marvin guy and I tried start a weird cult that was centered around the now banned player CrazyWilly - anyways, I'm sure you don't care.
I have selected a few sad songs that would be appropriate for this situation, or may apply so some of us personally.
(The Last one is a joke in case you thought I was being serious)

It's a shame to see this server has to go.
I sincerely thank all of you for such a wonderful time on the server over the last few worlds.
Here's a picture of my head collection 4th world

This place has meant more to me than I had expected when I first joined all those years ago. And it has definitely had an impact on who I am today. Thank you to everyone who was there for that amazing time & I don't think I'll ever forget you. I'm sure we're all sad that its ending, but I'm happy when i think back to what it was. Shout outs to some of my best friends trough the years: drummerdude47 (pittmanchris), halofreak, xXLEOBATXx, huey87evan, TheCrazyCatLady1, Sadic_
I hope to make memories like these again some day.
