Notice for Cracked Players

For various reasons, including becoming compliant with the Minecraft EULA, we will be officially ending support for all non-premium players on October 1st, 2020. This is a decision made knowing we will lose a good portion of our community, but in order to continue to grow and seek further opportunities, we do not have any other choice.

Server Maintenance – 8/17/20

The server will be down from 12 PM CDT to 12 AM CDT on 8/17/20. Actual length of downtime may be shorter depending on how long the maintenance takes.

During this period we plan to investigate many of the issues that have come up recently–the most important of those being lag spikes and server crashes.

Illegal Items Update

Update 9/14/2020
A new plugin has been put into place that will fix the issue with entire shulkers being cleared. Additionally, items will now revert to the highest, legal enchantment. “God” potions will be destroyed.

Over the past few weeks we’ve seen an influx of illegal items across the server. While this was alarming, we held back on providing any update until we were sure it was fixed. This is the update.

As of today, all illegal items will revert back to their original state, meaning any enchants above normally obtainable levels will cause the item to lose all enchants. In addition to this, moving a shulker box containing at least one illegal item will result in the entire shulker box being reset. This is not something we can control, it’s just how the system works.

We, as the admins of Lost Lands, saw the first “illegal item” as early as July 11th. Its existence or how it was obtained was no secret to us, but we monitored its existence and held off on any bans. Unfortunately, due to the mass distribution of not only that item, but many more, we’ve been left with no choice but this.

We have also verified the source of the items and we strongly believe the method used has been patched.

Should there be any issues with item deletion NOT related to illegal items, please contact us at either [email protected] or in the Discord #server-help channel by using !new (https://invite.gg/lostlands)

Network Update!

1.13-1.16.1 Users: There is a known bug that prompts all users, including premium accounts, to have to register and login. We are working on fixing this.

Update: The bug involving premium clients 1.13-1.16.1 having to register/login has been fixed.

Hi everyone, over the past few weeks we’ve been working on a large update that includes a new website and authentication system for non-premium/cracked accounts.

New Authentication System for Cracked Accounts

Lost Lands now officially supports cracked accounts. This means that those who have not purchased the game or would like to join with an alt but would not like to buy another copy can login. These accounts are limited to 5 per IP and must not have the username of an existing premium account (You will see either “Invalid Session” or “Bad Login”).

When joining the server, you will now connect to the authentication server. Here you will be prompted to create a password. Once created, you will be redirected to the main server. This password can be updated on our website.

What this Means for Premium Accounts and Existing Players

Premium accounts and existing players will first be connected to the authentication server, but almost immediately direct to the main server after. On first join, you will be given a password. Keep this password handy or reset it on the website. 

The Future of Accounts

Because accounts are linked with WordPress, our CMS software, we’re able to offer password resets of your account and commenting under your actual in-game name. However, we plan to expand functionality such as detailed profiles with join dates. 

Lost Passwords

If you happen to lose your password, your only option is to reach out to us at [email protected] and request a reset.
