I've had a few ideas for the upcoming survival server v2. Instead of me debating by myself I thought I would share some of the ideas with the community. I'll list the ideas below and you guys go ahead and post comments about what you think.
Jobs: With jobs you will be able to choose one profession to make yourself some more money. Let's say you choose to be a miner, each time you mine stone, gold, iron, diamond, etc, you will gain some money and xp towards leveling up your profession. If you choose to be a LumberJack you will gain money and xp for cutting down trees and planting trees. There is only one problem with jobs though, it cannot keep track of when blocks were placed. What does this mean? Well, let's say you are a LumberJack and you want a house made of logs. Each time you place a log you will be deducted some money. If we didn't do it in this fashion players would be able to infinitely place and re-break the same block over and over to gain money....
Someone was able to compromise our account for the hosting company we use. Fortunately knowing the information only allows you to start and stop our servers. Whoever it was stopped everything and dashed. I wasn't home for most of the tone so I couldn't do much, but now I have secured the account and started the servers again. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.
Today I bring you a nice update about a few things that have been done over the past week. So let's get into it.
New Shout Command: You can now broadcast a message across servers with the new /shout command. Instead of doing /shout <message> you can also do !<message>. They will do the samething. Now, just because you can broadcast across servers, don't think you can say whatever you want. We will ban players for using the shout feature inappropriately.
Assassins Removed: Yes, the Assassins server has officially been removed. We will not be bringing it back any time soon
Survival Server Ideas: I have given the idea of resetting the server a lot of thought. Personally I believe a reset could breathe new life into the server that it truly needs. I've thought of a few great ideas that will really help the server to be much more involved. First off, we will have a dynamic map where players can view the world from a cool web interface. To...
You may or may not have been on the hub server when I was taking requests from the players. All players on the server talked about what could be done to the server to make it more fun than it currently is. Why did I decided to do this? Well, I have some more free time on my hands and I really wish to become more active now. Let me list somethings that were talked about. Don't be shy, go ahead and post comments.
Assassins Server Removed: Well, yes, it is going to be removed, but you may see it some time in the future. I know what was done wrong on the first and second attempts so I'm confident that the third attempt in the future will be much better. Why are we going to remove this server? We just have too many open servers for players to play on, and don't have enough players. Once we get a larger playerbase I can see us reopening it.
Minigames Server Being Re-Made: Yes, you heard that right, we are going to be completely remaking the old...
As many of you know Mojang has updated their EULA. This means that servers are not allowed to monetize off of their server. In this case this means servers are only allowed to sell cosmetic items on their server. Starting August 1st, which is today, players are not technically allowed to purchase ranks or anything that gives them an advantage of other players. There is some good and bad news with this new change.
What is the good news? Well, the good news is that all you donors will not lose your ranks. You will log onto the server with the same rank you bought. Nothing will change for all of you players that donated, so don't be worried.
What is the bad news? For now the bad news is quite minimal. We will not be following the EULA at this time. We may have to change our donation shop to follow the EULA changes in the future.
Why are we not complying with the EULA? This is sort of a rough topic but I will try my best to explain our reasoning...
Well, the arcade server was going to release Friday, June 13th at 7PM EST. Unfortunately Mojang decided to take down the session servers from 6:30PM until whenever they come back online. Why can't we just open it a few hours later? Well due to some family emergencies on my side I had to leave my house at exactly 7:05 PM EST and could not open it at a later time. I apologize everyone and I hope you know we still love you!
This update is going to be a little longer than most, so let's get into it. Overall I am very pleased how everything has been turning out so far. The server came back to life, we are still getting new players, and people still love the server. That is all great news to me; I love it! Keep up the great work everyone and remember to have fun
Assassins server: Yup, we released the server. There is still a lot to be done but with the help our staff team we will be able to finish everything up pretty quickly. Coming soon to the server will be bounties, exp system, custom items like the tntmine, etc, some more builds and of course prices changes. If you think that something needs work on the assassins server please do make a post about it or comment here.
Skyblock server: Not much has really been done since the skyblock server is really reaching an age of maturity which means less work on it. Again post suggestions.
This update is going to be less about the servers and more about what is ahead. I'm sure some of you may have noticed less amount of production. We are just cannot work at the pace we would want to. That is where you guys come in. We are looking for experienced players in the fields of building, development, moderation and more. If you would like to apply for any of these positions please click the Applications tab at the top of the page.
As for the servers, we have brought back the new /inf command. You can switch servers, see players stats, check your points, and do many other things inside of this menu. Please if you have any question, suggestions, or complaints about the menu open up a ticket and tell us what is wrong.
The pointshop is out but I wouldn't say it is fully running. There are a lot of things that need to be fixed in it and a few other things to add. We are always looking for suggestions towards what to add and what to remove.
I know I didn't post an update last weekend, that was because I had some crazy real life stuff going on. Let's just dive straight into this one.
Donor perks: All the donor perks have been completed and documented. You can find all the perks by typing /perks in game. Pets have also been completed and can be seen by typing /pet in game.
The coming of skywars, survival games, and some more minigames. Recently a lot of people have been wanting us to add skywars and SG back since we reset. I decided I would take the leap and try putting all of these gamemodes on one minigame server so you can easily switch between games. I hope to release this server in 2 weeks from last Friday. If you have any suggestions as to what we should add to the server, please comment below
The survival serer has a lot done to it over the past two weeks. The donations perks have been completed, a lot of in game fixed along with the new tutorial, and soon to come more features. All the perks for the server can...
