  1. Revision 23 Reset We are very excited to announce that on January 4th, PvE will reset for Revision 23! We’d like to extend special thanks to Bermudalocket and Totemo as well as the other members of the tech and head admin teams, who have helped and continue to help us create what we hope will be one of the best revisions ever. We’d also like to thank the community as a whole for the patience you have shown during this transition. Revision 23 will be launching on 1.13.2, so remember to have your client and mods updated before you attempt to connect after the reset! Revision 23 Theme This revison’s theme will be Pirates! Over the course of the revision you will be able to undertake pirate quests that will test your cunning, bravery and possibly even your willingness to hold a conversation with a parrot. Here's a teaser of spawn: https://i.imgur.com/bTuon97.png End of Revision 22 Event: Your Vote Matters! In the past, end of revision events have been chosen by the padmin team. This time we thought we’d try something different and allow the community to choose! Below you’ll find a link to a poll with four options. The chosen event will be ongoing for the last 3 days of the revision, starting January 2nd. https://www.strawpoll.me/16903288 For those unfamiliar with some of these options, here’s a quick explanation: PAvE is a chaos event. The map will be saved for the final time to be put up for download, then all player protections will be removed and PVP will be enabled globally. TNT will also be enabled, giving players the chance to lay waste to the map! Creepocalypse is a special mob event that makes creeper spawns far more abundant and gives them special abilities, such as being able to spawn even more creepers! In the past some people have refused to leave the safety of their builds for fear of being immediately blown up in spectacular fashion. There will be special drops for those brave enough to fight back! Group build is a bit more self-explanatory. Players will be able to contribute to a large build, the theme of which has yet to be determined. Nothing at all! For those that want to end the rev on their own terms, without any special events or the risk of everything exploding around them. Now is the time to finish your builds in preparation for the final map save. More information about the new revision will be released over the coming weeks. Thanks for reading!

  3. Padmin Notes

    Greetings! Starting this thread as a new place for padmins to keep the community up to date on what we have been working on. (which is mostly hush hush right now - no spoilers for rev 23!) We have held a few meetings so far (scheduled and impromptu) making decisions for the upcoming revision. The most recent was held on October 14th where we finalized some of more pressing details about the upcoming rev, including the map and map size. Don't even try to pry more information from any of us than that. We won't say a peep. Techs are still working incredibly hard to update, fix, and sometimes completely re-write plugins that are essential for our server. If you see totemo or bermudalocket online please thank them for all they are doing and then let them get back to work. We do remind everyone we will give a 1 month notice before the start of the new revision and that there are still plenty of events in the works in this current revision. We have also decided that starting with the new revision we will bring back a monthly update of some sort (blog, newsletter, or other form to be determined). Also, we want to encourage players to use the suggestion box. We want to hear what you have to say. Please keep in mind that it is intended for serious suggestions.
  4. Head Admin Suggestion Box

    instead of typing /vote and clicking the link, maybe show the link each day on join Maybe the thank for voting message should also tell other people to type /vote We will look into the /vote system on the lobby and consider ways to reminder players without /vote messages becoming too spammy. /lever to change players to on by default Will bring this up with techs and see if there would be any issues with making players visible by default with a command Please set a reminder for ttsci to vote in the lobby nah, ttsci is on his own for that
  5. Staff Meeting Notes

    May 2018 Staff Meeting Agenda & Notes Saturday June 2nd, at 5pm EDT. Creative Going smoothly Waiting for Dumbo to add traincarts PvE 24 people have completed the maze and claimed the prize, padmins continue to keep an eye on the progress. 65 people have started the maze, which is a good turn out. Poetry competition was won by buzzie 71, 32 valid poems were received from fun to sad. [redacted] Progress made in future events and further the story line going on. Will be a large effort for us to put together. Lost Slime Golems are still available. Basic hide and seek around the map. Other events are also in the plans. Since the last meeting there’s been a team increase, currently 4 padmins and it has allowed some more relax time for all. Map world is getting an update. Old map world maps are also returning. Lots of new plots. The newest tech admin has done some very helpful work already for PvE: special thanks for the shulker box content logging upon death. More trades at spawn, including decorative skulls Hopper policy has been introduced after testing. https://nerd.nu/forums/topic/4921-new-policy-regarding-hoppers/ Rev mid point is arriving, so padmins will be seeking feedback in the coming weeks, in the form of a subreddit post and forum topic for preparation of rev 23. We will also be reviewing feedback we have already received this revision from the suggestion box, survey and elsewhere before making decisions for Revision 23. It’s likely that rev 22 will remain on 1.12 since the technical changes are so big, however the aim is that rev 23 would be on 1.13 (or the current version at the time) if it’s out. 6K Discussed ongoing technical issues and progress made. Ongoing Project Minor updates and testing still to be done. Head Admins Fundraiser [redacted] Mod Nominations & Needs Please go vote EU evening, early US afternoons could use more staff. Help wanted Nothing currently, but fundraiser things will go up soon Second box down temporarily Mumble got moved to another server Dev servers, build and wiki are currently down. Open Floor Hollifer: if anyone needs any C training or refreshers i'm pretty in the swing of doing that, you're welcome to hit me up pretty much anytime im online [redacted] June staff meeting will be June 30th, time pending Sir_Didymus: Can I request that public staff meeting notes are brought up to date - I don't think I've seen them recently? Answer: Yes
  6. Staff Meeting Notes

    April 2018 Staff Meeting Agenda & Notes Saturday April 28th, at 5pm EDT. Creative Rev 33 update Made a post about the revision, so everyone knows that it's going on a bit longer Things are going pretty well Barlimore mentioned he likes the reddit posts Holli has been making with shaders and such PvE Rev 22 update A few more moderators trained up this week 4 Land Claim Grief Discussion on how to handle this type of request. A number of changes from the tech team since the last staff meeting, including: Signtext for players on P (thanks pez) A few handy moderations to some older commands we use to restore pets (thanks pez) An update to easyrider, incorporating a number of past suggestion box requests from players - there's a link on the forum if you haven't noted the changes yet (thanks totemo). On a similar note, bermuda has been working on a possible fix for the issues players are having with drops from the dragon. Hopefully if it goes well, drops should be able to be received directly in the player inventory upon dragon death. Note: We've spent countless hours discussing feedback so far this revision. At least largely in part due to the survey feedback, which we've since responded to. A number of the suggestions found Didy and myself in disagreement with one another on the course of action, so we had to hold additional meetings throughout the past two weeks to further those discussions, before reaching team decisions. Reminder of the ongoing poetry competition - grand prize includes a fortune IV pickaxe. Discussion of bringing new padmins to the team Tech Admin Updates A new member - Bermudalocket! 6k Paused due to some technical issues Ongoing Projects [redacted] Head Admins Fundraiser Update Dungeon builds until June 1 Bard working on map Mod Nominations/New Staff Check the forums you lazy bums Recruitment criteria for upcoming month Keep eyes open and nominate when you see someone Help Wanted Open Floor Plan on C training after next month’s meeting Logblock Training/Practice
