I hope you're all doing well. This will be a rather long thread so be sure to read thoroughly. For a while now the the Administration Team have been working behind the scenes on a complete server revamp. While it is not fully complete yet, I feel now is the right time to announce to you all that all servers will be receiving a complete reset with updated features, as well as the implementation of 2 new gamemodes on the network. All ideas for which were based on the community feedback we received a while ago.
≫ "When will the revamp be released?" There is no set date for the revamp at present. However, I will be posting regular updates to keep you all in the loop on our progress. Right now I think it's important to share with you the plans that are in place in hopes that it will give you something to look forward to and hopefully to alleviate some frustration that some of you have been feeling about the lack of progress here. This is happening, but all we ask for is that you are patient with us.
≫ "What will be involved in the revamp?"
Servers being revamped:
○ Skyblock ○ Factions ○ OP-Prison ○ KitPvP
○ Survival ○ Skywars
○ New Ranks
○ New Store Perks
○ New Forum Style
A more in depth thread with detailed information will be released at a later date regarding specific updates/new features for each server. In addition, the server name will stay the same so you can think of this as a Minecart 2.0.
≫ "Will we keep our ranks?"
Absolutely, whichever current rank you have, whether obtained via the store or won via voting/crates, it will be manually transferred to the new permissions yml file and converted to the equivalent new rank.
≫"Do you have an advertising plan?"
Yes, we do. I am still very much in contact with Caleb on a daily basis and he very much intends to invest in advertising for this revamp. I know some of you may have your doubts about this but rest...
Evening everybody! I am pleased to announce Factions has now been fully reset, and hopefully for the last time until it's official revamp! Apologies for the delay and it having to be reset again - we have had some world compatibility issues.
As apparent, Factions has been reset... again. Mentioned above is a brief reasoning as to why. Either way, it will be re-released at 4:15 pm EST (9:15 pm BST) ready to be played!
There will be a Rare Crate Key All at 4:30 pm EST on Factions!
Explosions disabled until Tuesday 12th!
If you come across any issues or bugs please report them here.
We have also updated the Staff Page! As seen here it now shows full characters and you are now able to click on the body, not just the name.
A changelog post will be released later tonight listing all the things that have been fixed, recently.
What are we working on next? Next, we will be working hard on a secret project! But we are also considering resetting player data only on KitPvP - a refresh of the gamemode! Vote for your opinion on the poll above!
Any questions or concerns, feel free to reply below. We will not answer any questions on the 'Secret Project' topic as that is a working progress!
The Administration Team
You're probably wondering why I'm back, again... I think I've left and returned a few times now since I first got staff back in Jan '16, and you're probably asking yourself "What happened to this opportunity he was talking about?" Well, long story short, it's on hold. Due to various factors - that I won't be going into right now - I have deferred my studies. This means I will be taking a year out, but fortunately the opportunity offered to me is still very much on the table for when I feel the time is right.
In the meantime, with what free time I do have (I have a job too), I have agreed to come back to assist Lac and staff team to help the server progress as much as possible with the exciting plans they have in store. Progress has recently been a little slow, I know various staff members have gone since I left, and the player count has reduced somewhat; all this doesn't surprise me at all what with summer being over. However, I'm not at all concerned about the path we are taking and after being gone for the last 2 months, I'm eager to put in some hard work to ensure the server continues to move in the right direction.
Looking forward to doing what I can and I hope you'll stick around to see what's coming.
