I'd like to preface this post by letting you all know that we have huge plans in the works. We can't wait to show you guys what we've been working on, these projects have been in the works for quite a while.
First off, we have updated our Creative Plots server spawn! Thank you to the Ruinscraft Build Team for their hard work on this huge project. Our previous spawn was noticeably outdated - work was started on it in late 2013. It's been quite a while. With spring here, and our many new plans for the server coming up, we decided to give our Plots server a new and updated look. We hope you like it.
Speaking of spring, it's been a while since our last sale, hasn't it? I'm happy to announce our one week spring sale! All packages will be 20% off until Monday, May 8.
As I stated earlier, we have a lot of projects we're working on. The main project you may be thinking about is Creative...
This morning we re-enabled the //stack, //copy, and //paste commands on our creative Minecraft server.
The exploit used involved items such as redstone, carpet, cactus, and any block that drops an item when broken. Basically, people could create massive amounts of cactus (or whatever block that applies) with //stack and then break one and it would break them all. This would create a massive amount of entities all at once, overloading the server.
We have fixed this issue by limiting the amount of entities that can be created per chunk per tick update. This allows cactus, carpets, etc to still be stacked, but if you break them, they will not crash the server or lag your client.
If you find any exploits such as this one, please message a staff member.
We hope you all enjoy WorldEdit'ing freely once more,
Today I would like to talk about our KitPvP server and the recent issues we have been having with specifically Ender Chests functioning correctly.
If you play on KitPvP, you might have noticed some funky stuff going on with your Ender Chest data. If you are not familiar with what has been happening, Ender Chest data has disappeared, been altered, and not saved correctly ever since the launch of the KitPvP server.
We have tried our best to combat this issue and work towards a solution that provides rock solid server performance, data reliability, and the smoothest operations possible.
The Bukkit plugin we choose to use for this release of KitPvP (I am not going to mention the name, however many of you probably know anyhow) has been unreliable and, as previously described, has caused many data issues in the past.
Just today, the plugin has caused the Ender Chest data on KitPvP to become inaccessible.
Congrats to the winners of the Cloudy Visions event!
1st: stgclilly 2nd: JetTG 3rd: LakeTahoe
Thanks to everyone who joined in the event!
Today is the start of something special that we’re hoping to do often. I’m excited to announce a brand new Skyblock event, titled Cloudy Visions!
In Cloudy Visions, you are given 8 days to build your own fantasy Skyblock island from scratch. Think of it like constructing the most beautiful starting island that you could possibly survive on. You could edit your spawn island to make it however beautiful you want it, or you could simply build your own fantasy island. The island can be any size and shape you want, as long as it is natural and beautiful.
To create the natural beauty your island will require, you will have to collect supplies in the Skyblock manner - by completing challenges, farming materials, and buying items at the shop - making it a unique experience to collect the supplies...
For a while, we've wanted to give something more to our donators. They are the ones who keep our server up and running, and we appreciate them dearly for what they've done for us.
As a result, we've spent a significant amount of time to revamp our donation tiers. We hope you will like what we have added. New features include merging of plots, new kits, more plot customization, generation of natural biomes, and more!
We also would like to introduce our new VIP8 rank!
These new features will go into effect on Saturday, January 7th. For now, you can preorder our VIP8 rank while the sale and charity goal are still going on. This is a purely cosmetic rank (you will have the name and nothing else) until our release on January 7th.
Last year, we raised an astounding $622.50 for Toys for Tots, a charity that brings toys to children in need during the holiday season. This year, we have chosen to do another charity event for Child's Play Charity. Child's Play improves the lives of children in hospitals and domestic violence shelters through video games. We commit to donating 20% of any purchases in our webstore though January 1st! Our goal is to raise $300 to be donated to Child's Play. If we can reach this goal, we will be re-launching KitPVP back to Ruinscraft!
I encourage everyone to participate or even donate on your own. Let's do some good this holiday season. As always, keep in touch with us on Twitter or Facebook.
Firstly, instead of giving away three different ranks at three different times on the same day, we will be giving away one rank at one time on three different days. These days will be December 10th, December 17th, and December 24th. However, on the 24th, we will be giving away two VIP rank upgrades, meaning that if you win this giveaway as a member, you will be upgraded to VIP 2! The times for these giveaways have been undecided at the moment.
In order to enter, you simply need to be on the Hub server during the specified time for each date. Each winner will be given a rank upgrade to VIP 1. If you already have a VIP rank, then you will be upgraded to the next rank. If you already have the maximum rank, then you may...
