Alright guys I've been working hard on new features for this coming reset. One of the main things I'm trying to fix this time around is balancing the kits and economy. Now since this server is for you amazing people, I want your input into everything that may change.
Right now PVP is mostly fight until you run out of armor or gapples. I want to change this, so everyone can have more fun and enjoy the server. To do this it would mean changing kits quite a bit. Now the real main concern is balancing the new kits and also making them better. I personally think the best plan of action is to make it so ranks can only use their ranks kit and not theirs plus the ones from the ranks below theirs. Example: Instead of Member getting Kit Member and Kit Donor they would only get Kit Member. And make it so they can only be used every 48 hours (2 days). I know most of you probably hate me for saying this, but I feel it would enhance the experience in the long term. As well as making the overall enjoyment last longer so you don't get bored as quickly. This would make raiding more fun and common, enhance pvp, and allow non-ranks to not feel that aren’t completely out classed by those with ranks.
Currently what I need from you is feedback, anything and everything. Our goal is to make this server better than it has ever been and with your help I believe we can achieve that goal
Change isn't always bad, I promise!
EDIT: Also I forgot to mention if we change how often/ how many kits you get we will buff them accordingly. It's just if we make it so you only get your kit and not all the others I can balance them a lot better. So basically less kits doesn't mean worse loot from them. One YT$ kit will still be better then a Uber one. It's just it will be easier to balance
First off I'd like to apologize that it's taken us awhile to get this problem situated, the issue has been resolved so it should no longer be able to be abused. We have a standing rule on our server, exploiting can and will result in severe punishment. We've went through our logs thoroughly to see what players have exploited this issue on Towny, we were able to deduce who was abusing and who was using the xp bottle command legally. Normally we don't put those being punished on blast but the list of players is lengthy and if anyone has any questions I wanted you to have a place to post.
The following players will be banned for 7 days from the entire server:
The following players will be banned for 4 days from the entire server:
It's the moment you have all been waiting for! Towny launch is tomorrow,August 1st!
The launch is scheduled for 1 pm EDT (list of timezones to follow).
Be sure to come on with some version of 1.8 as Towny has also been updated to 1.8. There will be extensive tutorials posted tomorrow including all of the new plugin guides so that everything can go off without any pain.
Just a warning that when you go to create a new town, it claims the chunk you are standing on when you enter the command. Also, you can now claim right up next to another town, but you cannot do so without permission or your town will be deleted!
If you have any questions at all, feel free to post them in the comments below.
See you all tomorrow, and proceed to hype up!
10 AM PDT, 11 AM MDT, 12 PM CDT, 1 PM EDT, 6 PM BST, 7 PM CEST, 8 PM EEST.
To dumb it down even more, 10 AM If you are on the West Coast of the USA. 1 PM If you are on the East Coast of the USA, 6 PM If you are a Brit, 7 PM If you are in central Europe, 8 PM If you are in Eastern Europe.
Just a heads up that the minecraft servers can go down frequently. You may or may not be confused about whether or not it is our fault, and it usually is not. There is a helpful website you can use to check whether or not the minecraft servers are down, http://xpaw.ru/mcstatus/
We want to get the community involved in building some maps for Hunger Games but realise that it would be a big task to build an entire map by yourself. So what we were thinking is that we would divide the map up into eight different sections and let one person / one team of people design each section with a completely different theme.
The outline of the arena would look something like this: http://gyazo.com/de3a8bfd9f3c54b39476b318d747e3dc but five times bigger and leaving the middle section blank for the Sparkade team to finish up after the other sections have been designed. We would want each section to have a different theme, eg, Nether, End, Grass, Snow, Forest, Water.
There was really no easy way to allow you to build this on the server so we're going to leave it up to you. Contact me through the forums if you would like a schematic of the full sized template or go to /warp HG on creative to see it in person. If you do not have a way to build this on your own you are welcome to use the creative server to build structures that would be good to include in the map and we will do our best to incorporate them.
If you would like to work on your own entire map with friends you are also welcome to do that. Our existing maps range from 300 x 300 to 500 x 500 blocks. We're looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
So we've been working on getting Towny back up recently and we were wondering what kind of additional plugins you guys would like to see added in to this new world. We wanted to make it a little bit different so it wasn't just the same thing again while you still get the same Towny experience. Are there any changes you think we should consider before we re-launch this game mode?
The world guard around the factions spawn may slip a little around 3PM BST/10AM EST tomorrow, meaning you'd be able to place blocks. If you guys happened to bring along some TNT and some Flint and Steel, well there's nothing we could do about it.
