This message is a call out and reminder to people who enjoy and are good at building to think about joining the build team. The build team is always looking for applicants to aid them in creating various builds for the server. If you think you have what it takes, please consider producing an application in the creative forum section (http://sparkade.net/index.php?forums/creative.15/). Remember to use the appropriate format, shown in a thread at the top of the section.
I have recently implemented some quests into Towny, giving players a challenge to complete them. The rewards for the Quests involve money and xp, but more importantly a Quest point. As it is early stages there is only the one Quest NPC, Sir Killalot, which has a few quests on him, visit him to find out more. Meanwhile more quests will be added over time and this should hopefully help with small events and things. Referring back to the quest points, get stocking up, because these will need to be gained to unlock different Quests later on!
A skyblock reset is coming to a Sparkade Server near you! This is an official announcement for a Skyblock reset, but also a call out for any final ideas and suggestions the community has before the official launch. Comment all of the woots and hurrah's, as well as a 'hey this'd be cool...'. Suggestions may reinforce what I have put in, but also give me ideas for new stuff that I haven't already got. The Reset will be on Saturday 28th January at 2pm EST / 7pm GMT. There are new features and removed features from the previous Skyblock, as well as completely revised challenges! Stay tuned for any teasers during the week. I look forward to seeing you all in hub for the relaunch!
Just wanted to let you know that there should be a major change coming in the next few days that will hopefully breathe some fresh air into the server; I'll let you know when it happens. Also wanted to let you know that no, we haven't given up on the server.
Now that we've established that at least some people use the forums, let's have a little chat.
The server hasn't been very populated recently, with the most I've seen on at one time being 15 (this was just my observation once. I'm not on as much as I used to do to college work, so there could be more that I didn't see, but this is what I saw.) This makes me sad.
That being said, if you guys have any ideas or suggestions on how to get more players onto the server or how to make people's time on the server more fun, I'm open to any suggestions. These could include event suggestions, fundamental server philosophies, advertising ideas, witch trials, etc.
Hopefully we can get some more people on the server soon, and have everyone having a more enjoyable experience while they are on the server.
If you haven't heard yet, the Towny Beta will be starting TODAY, August 27th, at 1 PM EDT. The Beta will last for several days, somewhere between 3-7, so that we can test all of our plugins and finish developing others. Everyone Member + will be invited to participate. You will be able to join the towny beta server from the hub just as you join any other server.
ALL PROGRESS FROM THE BETA WILL BE CARRIED OVER TO THE LAUNCH, provided we do not run into any problems that prevent this from occurring.
There will be a channel on the public Discord where you can post feedback, bug reports, and glitches.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here.
See you all in a few hours!
