Hi Everyone,

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.

Hello Everyone,
As were are nearing the launch of the new Factions this weekend, the build team has been wrapping up the work on the new spawn.
Because of this, I have decided to post some teasers of the new spawn build and to post a few more everyday (provided I don't forget, which I can almost guarantee I will).
Anyway, here are the first few:

Factions: Iron is sell-able!
Actually no, not really. This post is about something slightly different. With our Factions reset looming around the corner, we need to know what you would like to see in the new shop. Should we keep it as is? Perhaps take away the selling of Obsidian? Possibly add sugarcane back into the mix! I want to know what you guys think, so please take the time to give us your thoughts on the subject.

Just a quick message to let you guys know we're going to be doing a mob arena on the Friday night (26th June) before the reset on factions to use up some of your gear. Might throw in some other things too, let me know what else you'd want to see in that case. Nothing too extravagent, it'll all be wiped the day after anyway.

Hey guys!
If you were lucky enough to be around Wednesday night, you were probably among the first to beta test the new Hunger Games gamemode! It's currently still in beta while we work out the bugs, but we should be launching fully within a few days!

Here are some screenshots I gathered from the matches:

Hope you guys are as excited as we are for the new gamemode!

The planned server-wide Scavenger Hunt will take place this Saturday (30th May) at 7PM BST. The hunt will begin in the hub where an outline of the rules and the first clue will be. Each clue will lead you to the next and will have a letter or number which you'll need to make note of to prove you have followed each of the signs to the end.

There will be some obstacles you may need to get around to acquire these clues and the winner will be rewarded with generous prizes.

Feel free to post any questions below and I'll hopefully see you guys on Saturday.
Good Luck! -JMB

Hey guys,

There's been a few problems with Towny, as you've probably noticed if you are an active player there. Basically, Towny as a plugin has a really bad habit of eating its own files, and this ends up corrupting the world files. It's happened every time we have used the Towny plugin, which is unfortunate, but it is the price we have to pay for using such a great set up. It usually puts out a few months of great gameplay and then problems start to emerge. The lone before this world lasted the better part of a year, which i great. But this one lasted a little less. The world has been corrupted, so we have two options as far as I can see.

Option 1, we continue to try to save the world, with no guarantee that everything will be completely normal. This option will take quite a bit of time, and Towny won't be back for a little while because of it.

Option 2, we get a brand new world and maybe a couple of new plugins to make up for losing everything. This option could be done in less than a day if it is chosen.

Sorry that this has happened, I know everyone has worked hard on what they've built. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to ask them below.
Thanks,
Doc
