SMP Re-opening!!!

Skegnas48 ao posted Sun at 13:57

The time is here! SMP has now re-opened with a new world, new plugins, and new gameplay features!!

With features such as Towny, Minigames, and a Hardcore world added there should hopefully be a lot to keep you entertained!

Some things to note are some minor bugs (currently afking will cause you to be kicked to the hub when you return - I'm hoping an update to Bungee should fix this) and minor features that haven't yet been implemented (such as /bcbae and survival games) but will hopefully be making appearances in the coming weeks!

Please also note that to keep things fair all kits (except for money kits) will be disabled for 3 weeks so that hopefully some players won't be at much more of an advantage than others at this time.

If you notice anything that's yet to be changed then don't hesitate to tell staff and we'll get it sorted ASAP. Donors if you also contact staff then your ranks will be given back to you as long as we can confirm that you are entitled to it (mostly this will be done through the donor page in the community tab above).

See you all online soon!

The time has come!

Appropriate Music (ignore the national anthem...)

I will be looking to close SMP to revamp the server and upgrade to 1.12(.1 hopefully) some time within the next week (not over the weekend don't worry). During this time the server may be down for a couple of days whilst things are ported over and whilst we make sure it works. But during this time CMP and the Hub will both be up and accessible to all players. After the reset CMP these two servers will hopefully be accessible on both 1.11 and 1.12 clients whilst we sort out upgrading CMP, at which time they'll both be upgraded to 1.12 but more about that later down the line.

Due to conflicts with 1.12.1 some features might not be ready for release but these should be relatively minor points if any that won't affect the overall experience

I will make a raffle to pick the 3 initial towny mayors and let them know soon.

SoonTM

Details of SMP World Reset!

Skegnas48 ao posted Jul 18, 17

Hey folks!

So you've probably all noticed a lack of reset thus far mostly because it takes time to organise certain parts and one vital plugin still hasn't updated to 1.12 at this point. To make up for that somewhat I thought it would be a good idea to explain what new changes there will be when it does finally happen!

Towny: A brilliant suggestion by Oscar, adding Towny will allow more interaction between players and the possibility of making villages, towns, kingdoms, and nations with their own leaders, mayors, Kings/Queens, and other roles to help support the towns. This will end up being a rank perk but we're thinking that perhaps having a few players that want to own towns and are willing to open them up to all players to kick start the introduction of Towny. We may also have to resort to a raffle if many players want to do this. Have a look here for more info: http://towny.palmergames.com/towny/757-2/

New Plugins: We have a number of new plugins that will be added to the server, most are just cool little cosmetic things but a couple of them (like Towny) do change the gameplay aspect of the server. Here are how a few of the plugins work: menu to allow warps to certain areas through 1 command, show items in chat, custom polls in chat set by staff, colour item names in an anvil, teleport a horse with you to avoid those 10,000 block journeys, marriage (pff it looked fun ok), pet blocks (and heads), a replacement for echopets allowing access to all 1.12 mobs, the replacement of chairs with a sit/lay by command, random wild teleport, hotels, among others. 

Rank Changes: There will be a rank reset with this reinvention of SMP given the changes that are being made and the fact that ranks have been kept for at least 2 years now. Donors WILL keep their ranks but there will be a 3 week block on all kits to stop the problems faced in the last reset where some people were able to get diamonds and iron much, much quicker than others, which should make things a bit fairer. There will also be some changes made to obtainable ranks which includes changing the names, adding a few new ranks to help with the addition of Towny, introducing new perks for ranking up from the new plugins, and possibly reducing the requirements for each rank to compensate for higher number of them.

Hardcore: This is one of the bigger changes coming to SMP along with Towny. We'll be opening a hardcore world which will include the Disease and Thirst plugins. Disease and Thirst mean that you will have to contend with illness, injury, and the need to drink in that world only (not in the overworld). This world will be filled with mobs more dangerous than normal mobs to offer a challenge to CE gear, and there would likely be a penalty for dying (such as revoking access to the world again or lose money) although that's yet to be confirmed. This world would also offer the ability to introduce a bit of a storyline to what happened in it, although this may come later down the line, as well as offering the ability to expand this world and bring in new challenges.

Minigames: We'll be looking to add a number of minigames plugins to SMP including: survival games, one in the chamber, football (soccer if you speak Americanese), and spleef. These will hopefully be introduced over time as buidling arenas for them takes a while. Survivalgames, football, and maybe OITC should definitely be ready for the reset if there are no issues with the plugins.

The Fall of BCBot: I've saved the most shocking for last. The demise of BC Bot. Here is some appropriate music to listen to whilst you read. BC Bot has served us all faithfully for the last couple of years and now it is time to hang up the robotic hat and let the new oil take over (get it!? like new blood but for robots! I'm so witty). In loss comes new life, and that new life is BC Bae. With revamped messages, new colours, and a name that truly reflects the bae-ness of and pure love and affection shown towards the automated messages on the server.

That is your general explanation of what's yet to come, there are a couple of other changes that will appear but this post is long enough already. I'm still not going to give a definite date for the reset as there is still work to be done on the server to get ready. We will be taking words of love for BC Bot's obituary in the comments below.

Hey folks,

Big thanks to everyone that voted on the polls that have been up on the website for the last 2 weeks about a world reset on SMP and potential SMP revamp (and how much of a revamp you'd want). The results are in and it seems that the majority of people want a world reset with some more major changese to SMP gameplay (the core gameplay of the server will still be survival, we won't be going crazy!).

I'm currently not going to release when any changes will be happening because I don't want to box staff in with a window that we can't meet if something isn't ready in time. So for the moment SMP will be staying as it is so do play on it still (there will be no changes within the next week or probably 2 for definite). Along with the world reset we'll be doing a rank reset as well (we have a list of donors, don't worry) as it's been about 2 years, if not longer, since they were introduced.

As for 1.12, we'll try to get that sorted at the same time but a lot of well known and relied upon plugins (for many servers, not just BC) are having issues after being updated to 1.12, so I will only be updating to the next minecraft version if I think it will be safe for player data and the server.

Hopefully I haven't forgotten anything but if there are any questions then feel free to ask in the comments below.

As one last thing, we will be revamping CMP next (though probably without the world reset) ;-)

SMP, CMP and a world!

Skegnas48 ao posted Jun 5, 17

Hey folks,

Some updates to make you aware of:

1. An SMP world reset poll is up on the right side of the homepage just above the YouTube icon. Please vote on this and let us know if you would like a world reset!

2. I have posted a thread in the forums about potential revamp to SMP, please take the time to read it over and vote on the poll, it is very important! c-:

3. Things seem very SMP-centric today on the website, so I wanted to just announce that we are looking into changing up the ranks on CMP. This is really, really early at this point (as in Ren and I came up with an idea yesterday), so don't expect anything really soon but just to show that we love you too, CMP.

4. We'll now be allowing certain emoji images in tags, check out the forums to see!

~Skegs :-)

Englian How about you reset the SMP world when the plugins hit version 1.12., huh?
