  1. PvP discussion

    i feel that nerd.nu can and should facilitate more in PvP within the game, the survival server is gone and wont be coming back its as simple as that, unfortunatly.. i want people to discuss the possibility of reviewing the rules of PVP on PvE, one example would be the size of PvP regions? if we want more active members in our community i think we have to look at what can be done to become more appealing to those who would be more inclined for that game style, I for one would love to see a town on P that will have a PVP region but this comes with scenarios that would need to be thought about. and ideas of your own or concerns then raise those points! lets discuss!

  3. We're going to start publishing public head admin meeting notes and gather them here. 2017/10/07 2017/10/15 2017/10/21
  4. Staff Meeting Notes

    STAFF MEETING NOTES July staff meeting notes August staff meeting notes -- September staff meeting notes are now up! September staff meeting notes (2017/10/30)
  5. This was sparked more about noticing the changelogs being under the suggestion forums, where they logically do not belong. Because the user rates for the forums are low, I think we should also simplify the structure and while making it easier and more intuitive to use. Suggested new structure (would be happy to hear thoughts of it and possible improvements): NEWS AND INFORMATION - News & Information - Events - Archives MINECRAFT - General - Creative - PVE - Minigames COMMUNITY - General - Other Games SUPPORT - Ban Appeals -> Closed Ban Appeals - Problems & Issues STAFF - Mod Chat -- Notes about the suggested changes: - Suggestion forum in itself would not be needed. Suggestions would go to the forum it concerns. So suggestion logs for P and C would go to their respective forums under Minecraft and general community suggestions to the Community General forum. Suggestions have been quite active though, so would like to hear how people would actually prefer this. If it was a separate forum, it could just be put under the community section. - Community and server changelogs would go to the News & Information forum where they're easily found. - Introduce Yourself isn't used at all and Ask Me Anything quite rarely. Topics like that could be included at the Community General, though if people like having them separate, they could just reamain at the Community section. - Remove The Lounge totally and redistribute things. - Archives would be under News and Information. - Past Events wouldn't be needed, since they'd just also go into archives. - Problems & Issues is a low use forum, but because people might want to have notifications up to be alerted when someone posts there, keeping it separate is probably good. - Off-Topic not needed, since things there would just go to Community's General forum. -- These are my suggestions for changes. I'd be interested in hearing ideas from others! Reorganizing the forums as such isn't such a big task, and it would be a quality of life improvement for everyone using it.
  6. In the wiki (http://wiki.nerd.nu/wiki/Client_mods), it says that "Watson" is an approved mod. It displays LogBlock info. Wouldn't this be useless to average players and only useful for staff?
  7. Hello all, I have taken a long break from this community because minecraft bored me and so did many of the people who were around when I decided to leave. I've had a bit of a flick through the threads and topics on this site to get an idea of where the community is at now and I was wondering If I could pose a couple of questions to see if it were worth coming back P.S If this kind of post is against the rules, I'm sorry, I'm a bit out of the loop. Questions: Is the server still active or are the numbers thinning? What voice chat does the server use now? (mumble was empty) Is tobylane still here? Who are the current admins? Have you guys become even more anal about rule enforcement? Is survival still dead and forgotten? Are people still arguing over the old days of nerd.nu (which by the way, kicked ass) Are mods still horridly unequipped to deal with simple issues in game such as land disputes and teleporting people and mobs when they get trapped? Has the age demographic of C.NERD moved past the very early teens? Is nerd.nu virtually dead? That's all the questions I have, I hope somebody will be willing to answer. Researching all this stuff myself would be exhausting. Cheers, - Bad Apple
  8. Have a nice build and just don't understand the twisted arcane art of installing fancy shader plug-ins so everything looks nice? Well no promises, but fill out the following information and post in this topic below to have some kind hearted sucker-I-mean-soul do the work for you. No one is specifically assigned to completing these requests, so ask nicely and have an open mind about the time it may take to complete. Essential Request Information: Build name: Server: Coordinates or a public /home Screenshot picture of the exact view. Mark the location where the screenshot was taken with a brightly colored block.
  9. Traincarts!

    Traincarts is a plugin that allows a few different abilities with minecarts that i am suggesting for Creative :D and also i heard you can use ladders as vertical rails
  10. My group has played and enjoyed KoTH, but like many players, we noticed an unfair advantage. Whichever team captures the beacon first will likely win the game. To counter this, I recommend having two beacons (hills) that must be captured. This way, both teams earn points as long as they keep at least one beacon each, but the real contest will be to capture the second beacon ... to have two beacons simultaneously earning points. This will be more player-friendly, more balanced and also more challenging, which may also require more teamwork. Just a suggestion.
  11. New Server Icon Contest!

    Come one come all! With the introduction of Minigames we've decided to run a new server-icon contest! In order to qualify: You must submit a generic nerd.nu icon as well as an icon for each server: PvE (P / PvE), Creative ( C ), Minigames (M), Event (E), Chaos (X) for a total of 6 icons The icons must be 64x64 pixels and in PNG format The best icons will somehow include the nerd.nu glasses logo to be consistant with our branding Icons do not need to be identical but sets that match will receive higher marks. Icons MUST conform to community rules Submissions will be accepted for 1 month, at which point they will be evaluated by head admins and icons that meet the requirements will be put to a vote. Post your submissions below (imgur links are preferred) Good luck!!
  12. /r/mcpublic Content Survey

    Hey all. I've been working on some neat things that I'm hoping to bring into the /r/mcpublic stylesheet soon and while i'm doing it I thought it would be a good time to find out a few bits of information from everyone. Please take a moment to fill out the survey, and if you have any additional comments please please please make them below. Thanks! - Silver
  13. /me farts

    Hello Nerd.nu I don't know how many of you have seen my post on the subreddit linked here: https://www.reddit.com/r/mcpublic/comments/5f93j7/me_farts/?ref=share&ref_source=link For those who haven't seen it, whenever a player would type /me farts it kicks the player to the lobby and says nothing in chat. My problem with this, is that this appears to be targeted at one player specifically. I do not feel that that is right. Especially with no warning and no discussion. This is, from my position, and the position of a few other mods I have talked to, an abuse of power. Content-wise, /me farts really isn't that bad. Compared to all the other rules that I have actually seen broken in chat, such as doxxing, racism, and misogyny that goes unmoderated by staff, this is very tame, like third grade level tame. I mean sure, it can be annoying, but I could come up with a list of 20 things that have happened that are as or more "annoying" than /me farts This really has been an over-reaction on the admins end. Targeting players like this, and singleing out players can really have a detrimental effect on the community as a whole. If we went around changing and banning everything that we didn't like or that annoyed us, we wouldn't have much of a server. This hasn't been the only targeting of specific players recently, but I hope it to be the last If nothing changes, all I really ask from the admin team is an actual answer, and not to be called a "troll/drama causer/whatever" because I am not being one of those. I am a loyal peasant that wants to know what is going on in the Admin Kingdom that is Nerd.nu Cheers, RokkuCXVII
  14. Artwork Thread

    Put some art you made here and talk about other people's art
  15. After talking with some of you on Minigames about Division/Artifact, I've noticed enough requests that the sword should be moved to the leftmost slot to give hotbar rearrangement for those maps some thought. I'll be honest - I consider weapons in the middle of the hotbar to be the most optimal arrangement for my own PvP (I can't fight well with the sword on the left), which is why the player kit is arranged the way it is. However, for other maps in the rotations, the weapons are placed on the leftmost end of the hotbar, and I get the impression that most players are accustomed to that arrangement instead. So to gauge opinions informally, I've opened this poll to see what you think the hotbars on Division/Artifact should look like (as well as to ask if the colored blocks are useful). Please take a moment to weigh in - and feel free to suggest another arrangement in the comments if you don't believe the ones listed are great. I won't guarantee any sort of action based on the poll results or thread comments, but if there seems to be a clear consensus in the poll results and/or the comments I can certainly look into submitting an edited config to redwall for incorporation.
  16. I'm Abitcat. AMA time.

    Just ask me anything.
  17. Armor stands by default can be shoved around with pistons and such so that they are not centered, but sometimes you want them to be in a VERY specific spot and it just doesn't work. Please consider adding an additional command to StandMaster9000 that allows for fine-tuned placement of stands. The most straightforward way from a user-interface standpoint is, I think, to allow an offset argument, measured in meters (e.g. /stand offset 0.25 0.10 1.2) to a maximum of 2 meters offset. I was going to open an issue on the github as a feature request, but for whatever reason opening issues is not enabled on the standmaster github page for the public. https://github.com/NerdNu/StandMaster9000 (If there's already a way to fine-tune placement of armor stands, I'd love to hear about it. The best i could come up with was using pistons and fence gates/carpets and it's not really ideal)

  19. PvP maps in Creative

    Hey. So my PVP maps have definitely been popular in the past, and I've been creating some new ones. My current one, Garage, is taking a questionable amount of time for a warp req. Since I definitely plan to create more in the future, are there any plans of an equivalent of /warp PVP for the new rev? I know it was omitted probably due to its low popularity but I don't want my PvP maps possibly cluttering up the warp menu again. o/ edit: minor text fixes -niantic
  20. Some of the old lobbies were pretty neat. Please consider publishing them alongside the old map downlods for the different nerd servers on http://nerd.nu/backups/
  21. If there are storage and bandwidth limitations that our second box (for hosting nerd.nu/backups) is nearing, I suggest nerd distribute .torrent files for these downloads. This would enable players to contribute a little bit of bandwidth by seeding the torrents, reducing strain on the second box when someone goes to download many large files. If storage really is an issue, then with enough seeders you could probably just remove some of the files from the server to clear out space, letting the torrents do the work. http://www.wikihow.com/Create-a-Torrent
  22. If the staff were to either make creative a modified Minecraft server, or make another server that is modified with a creative game play style, what would you like to see? You can either list game mods, or just ideas for mods. Be specific, what would make the game better?
  23. Please fill out the survey so that the nerd.nu staff know what the community would enjoy playing. For those of you new to the idea of modded minecraft, you can try out various mods from the minecraft forums, or try the super easy to use modpack launchers by the Feed The Beast team, the Technic team, ATLauncher, or Curse (the company that hosts the minecraft forums and wiki). The popular/featured modpacks are usually pretty well balanced and work without many issues. http://feed-the-beast.com/ http://www.technicpack.net/ https://www.atlauncher.com/ https://www.curse.com/games/minecraft (if you go with the Feed The Beast [FTB] launcher, a very good introductory modpack is the Direwolf20 pack) If you want to tinker with mods on your own (it can be a little bit tricky if you are new to it) I highly recommend using the open source MultiMC Launcher. It makes everything very very easy to keep contained so that if you make a mistake you can easily undo it or work in a separate instance. If you tinkered with minecraft mods in ages past, know that it is much simpler and less challenging than it used to be - Forge is basically the main thing that allows mods to be easily dropped in and out of a minecraft instance, and there are no more data value conflicts when multiple mods are installed. http://multimc.org/ http://www.minecraftforum.net/forums/mapping-and-modding/minecraft-mods http://minecraft.curseforge.com/mc-mods (NB: this poll and post were made by me, Mumberthrax. I am not a nerd.nu staff member. Voting in this poll does not necessarily guarantee any particular action on the part of nerd.nu staff/administration) Thanks for taking this survey! Feel free to share your comments below! Edit2: to allay concerns about security issues, the FTB launcher, Technic launcher, and ATlauncher are all three open source with code hosted on github. AFAIK your password/credentials never go anywhere except to mojang's login servers when using these launchers. The curse voice launcher doesn't even let you input your mc password iirc. Edit: To be clear, nerd.nu uses server plugins that are sometimes called mods, but client mods are what we're talking about here. Here's a video series as an example of what the direwolf20 modpack is like:
  24. Around December 2014 I made a post regarding an overhaul of nerd.nu's ban policy in the admin-only subforum. Around the same time I also made a post about a "mass ban amnesty" event in the same admins-only subforum. I do not have links to these since they are in a section of the forums that is not visible to me, and I have since cleaned my web browsing history. I don't remember all of the ideas that I suggested in the posts, nor am I certain that I would still today support them or the sentiments i expressed, and I would like to see them again as well as the discussions from other admins in response to them at the time. Please consider moving these two posts/discussions to the public archives subforum. Thank you. (Link to previous request, just in case it is relevant: https://nerd.nu/forums/topic/3228-foia-requests/?p=28566)
  25. After spending a stupid amount of time reviewing other PvP servers as a part of launching this latest rev I have noticed every other reasonably successful server has a more dynamic list ping. The list ping is the thing that shows up in your list of servers within the minecraft client. I propose we throw off the shackles of the oppressive default minecraft regime and embrace this era of color and fanfare! I spent an hour or so coding up a plugin which would not only give us a nice uniform feel to the server list pings, but could also allow mods / admins to dynamically change it from within game, an example of how this would look and also the benefits of this can be seen below. You can see an example of other servers list pings at http://mcnetworkstats.com/ While a lot of us only play on nerd.nu and probably cant see the benefits of having a more obvious list ping those of us that play elsewhere and compete for eye attention against these other servers should understand how much we are kneecapping ourselves in terms of visibility. Thoughts?
