YASMP is nearly ready for Open Beta

UPDATE: Open Beta will start sometime tomorrow (Saturday, Aug16th).  Exact time TBD.

Yes, that’s right, after a long-overdue wait, we should be ready for an open beta in the next day or so, unless anything major is found. Open Beta means that you can play, but if we find anything that makes it really unfair, we might just wipe out the whole world, and start again. So if you find some exploit, it really is in your best interest to let us know right away. If you don’t, when we do find it, we’ll just erase the whole map and start again. We’re working on a new player guide, that will help you get oriented to the new setup, and Towny. I’ll post an update here, when it’s ready for everyone to look at. -Sage

Unfortunately its true folks.... Rise of the Tomb Raider will be an XB1 exclusive when it launches holiday 2015. As you have guessed the gaming community at large is pissed.

The Announcment:

Click here for the full announcement. Upon hearing this announcement, the gaming community at large (PC and Playstation Nation) flew into a rage induced frenzy with many taking to twitter to aim their rage at the games developer:

The creative server is meant to be a safe haven for all creations, and griefing is the worst thing possible on this server.

Everyone banned should know that they are very lucky this is only a 1 week tempban for griefing. Since the griefing was being done with the //up command (which has now been removed from everyone) to generate a glass block anywhere, it's partly my fault for not testing this before giving everyone worldedit.

Now you're probably thinking: "Well dreamphreak, if it's your fault, why are we the ones getting banned?", and the answer is that the damage done with these glass blocks cannot be undone, not by me, not by the server, not with plugins, not with commands (Since it's not recorded in LogBlock) - Everyone affected by this griefing has to remove them manually (or use worldedit) and repair the damage that was done.

So 1 week tempban to think about your actions, GRIEFING ON A PROTECTED SERVER, and don't ever grief on the creative server again. Some of you may have only done this as revenge because someone did it to your plot first, but revenge is not the answer. If someone reported this when it started happening, it would have been fixed before it got this bad.

Creative Updates

While everyone is being forced to play on Creative while we hammer out a bit more stuff in YASMP, I decided to work on creative a bit. Now's its more free, open and friendly.

  • WorldEdit added for everyone! All the redstone stuff and certain plants are blocked to prevent Item drops if set in the air, which can lag the server.
  • Cleaned up Auto Messages, it was outdated (showed messages about donations), and made it more friendly.
  • Shortened down the 10 player-ranks to 2 and the 5 staff-ranks to 2. r1 has yellow name, ability to use Mob Eggs, Potions, Exp bottle, tnt, and can claim up to 2 plots.
  • r1 rank will be given out to people who are active and build cool things on their plots, and when we think they deserve a 2nd plot so they don't have to erase their first one.
  • Redstone for Everyone: Removed restrictions for redstone devices like pistons, hoppers, droppers, dispensers, doors, noteblock, jukebox, all the redstone components.

Also be sure to check out the updated Clash of Clans pages: http://www.pwn9.com/coc - I made the buttons, but J_A_C_K__E made the content. :)

It is done.

Anarchy is no more.

YASMP… Still not ready yet.

So, just build something cool in Creative and the staff will all vote on their favourite, which may be featured in our new lobby map, in a few days.

We are working on getting the new YASMP map (featuring Towny) set up for Open Beta very soon…

Stay tuned.

I have an idea

Since Anarchy is going away on Aug 1, I just came up with an idea to make the game a little more fun before the end.

The game is called (unless someone can think of a better name): Implosion.

It's fairly simple, actually.  Starting at 00:01 on Friday July 25th, the world will be 1/2 the size it currently is,

It currently goes from -6000,-6000 to +10,000, +10000, with the centre at 4000,4000, so on July 25th, it will become -0,-0 to 8000,8000. (8000 blocks)

On July 26th, at 00:01, the map will become 2000, 2000 to 6000,6000 (4000 blocks). 

On the 27th: 3000,3000 to 5000,5000 (2000 blocks).

What's goin' down? Anarchy

Yeah, that's right.

We're all fed up with Anarchy.  So it's shutting down on Aug 1st at midnight.  I've already set the self-destruct mechanism.  It will shut down, even if I get hit by a bus tomorrow. (I'm hoping that doesn't happen, by the way).

What will replace Anarchy?  Well, the plan is still to get YASMP ready and fired up.  But if it's not ready, we're not going to start it. So.. maybe nothing.

As much as this might kill off the rest of our player base, it's still better than the alternative, which seems to be personal attacks against each other.

 

So... Come on back on Aug 1, and see if we have a new server or not.

What happened to Creative? Why isn't the new map out yet? Oh... And a Wiki!

One word... CloudAtCost. (Yeah, it's actually 3 words smashed together).

As the regular Minecraft players know, we were planning on having CloudAtCost be our server host for all things Minecraft.  Unfortuantely, they have undergone some serious problems, due to unforseen growth.  They have posted an update that indicates they are working on fixing the problems, but our Big Dog 3 server (aka Derp) has been offline for over 3 days at this point.
