So we been talking tonight on Teamspeak. Clearly our Build Server is dead and if we disable Whitelists it will just get worse overtime as we have no block protection and trying to add one at this stage is well just silly and impossible to deal with the griefs. This is a 1.8.3 Server! The idea is to start fresh and retire the old world. Not a big deal some people will lose a bit but overall there is not much there to begin with sadly. With the new server will come new ideas and new features. One the biggest thing we are looking into is testing out Protection system like Grief Prevention Plugin. This would allow people to setup a very simple protection system to protect their base. I also have been considering adding a bit more structure to the server. 200 out protected spawn with a road network and someday a rail network. The idea is there be 2 nether and 2 end portals around the world around the 2k marks away from spawn. The goal is to promote people living further away and not spawn. We also like to add more features away from spawn overtime like mob arenas and more. Rough picture of the idea: Grey = Spawn Red = Nether Portals Beige = End Portals Black = Roads and overtime a rail system? We have the map set at max out 2k to start with. So this way we have time to develop a smaller area and overtime will expand out. Maybe as a goal once we finish a road/rail network. The idea with this map is more people will be drawn to the 4 corners rather then just spawn. We hope to offer them a better appeal. The rules will be light and we are not here to police or tell you what you can or can't do. Will not stop people from having fun but will intervene or people abusing server resources. Plugins that we are considering: Protection: http://www.spigotmc.org/resources/griefprevention.1884/ Log Blocking: http://dhmc.us:8080/job/Prism/ World Map: http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/dynmap/ Permissions: http://www.curse.com/bukkit-plugins/minecraft/permissionsex Citizens: http://www.curse.com/bukkit-plugins/minecraft/citizens Chairs: http://www.curse.com/bukkit-plugins/minecraft/chairsreloaded World Border: http://www.curse.com/bukkit-plugins/minecraft/worldborder Progression Update: 4/9/2015: Today we created the Survival server so we can do more proper testing on it. We added Better Shops Plugin with Vault Plugin. We decided Chest Shops is getting old and we wanted something that was more powerful and simpler via a interface. Also started to work on some permissions and created the survival database and go through some plugin configs. 4/8/2015: Today we got a lot started. We decided to Wipe the creative server and over the next few days will end up hosting the files to download. We now have a blank testing ground to not only test plugins and features we are adding to the server but also test out creations that people are planning on making on the Survival server. Electro and Bagline started plans on a waterway system with build in train / walkway. We updated several plugins and tested them. Plugins so far in testing: ByteCart Chairs dynmap Essentials EssentialsSpawn Lift PermissionsEx prism WorldBorder worldedit worldguard We talked more about our plans. We would like to bring back Trade 2.0 like place using Chest Signs. We also like to consider highly bring a new world for this as well as generating a new world MAYBE for Vanilla for people to get more clay and other rare resources overtime. This is quite a Maybe as our main world plugin we use is down. 4/5/2015: ElectroBot and I start talking about Minecraft and how we could change things and make it better. Overall we slowly built some hype up and others in the community seem to have their interests peaked. We decided it was time to start a brand new permanent server aimed at not forcing people to have to get whitelisted. We Upgrade Creative to 1.8.3 and remove some broken plugins and upgraded others.
