• PvP Arena Poll Closed

    Quick update to let you know the PvP Arena poll is closed.

    I will try implement the new arenas in that order – though Spleef/parkour arenas might be implemented sooner than they are ranked on poll.

    Again big thanks to everyone who joined the competition and helped us vote for the coming Arenas ingame!

    And congratulations to SIR_TARDISALOT for being Top Dog in the contest. GJ

    Date for implementation is unknown, but it will be soon – already made ready to install it on a test server so I can set it up in peace and quite and not disrupting your normal gameplay. Also to determine if I will implement it in our existing world or use a new optimized world (we want to avoid all possible lag).

  • Poll: Vote for your favorite PvP Arena(s)

    Hey everyone!
    It is time to evaluate the many entries we had for our coming Battle Arenas – Thanks to all of you who gave it a shot and spent your valuable time to try create something permanent for our server – you guys are awesome =)

    Please take a look at each entry below – even visit them in-game to get a good sense of how they are built and how they would work as a playable Arena in-game.
    This Poll will be active one week from today – ending next wedensday, March 19 2014. That should give everyone a fair chance to view the builds and make the right choices.

    In this Poll you can place your vote on several Arenas, not just one as in the past polls – so be sure to select all the areans you like.
    When the poll is over, then I will copy and use the arena with most votes first and continue in that priority forward when we need more arenas in-game.

    Good luck to all entries and be sure to spread the word to your fellow player – so we get as many votes as possible to help determine the best Arenas.

  • PvP Arena – Contest – Submit your builds

    arena

    Hey guys, time has come to submit your PvP Arena builds!

    We have had 14 busy days since the release of the new PvE world – a lot of tweaks have been done and many in the queue. But we are getting there 🙂

    As promised, the PvE world will include PvP arenas in different shapes and sizes (Spleef, regular PvP, CTF etc), and now is your time to set your permanent mark on the new server – Use your awesome building skills and build an arena we can use for future PvP Battles.

    I will leave the details up to you – but be sure to keep the battle area a square/rectangle (so it is possible to define the PvP borders properly).

    Temporary Creative Server: 72.20.7.90

    I will not save this map – so notice this is only a server for this contest (might make a real creative world later)

    Just like the past contests, you guys will have the power to determine which arena(s) we select as official PvP Arenas – when we have a good selection of contributions, I will start a poll (multichoice poll).

    For starters I think we will try a regular PvP Arena and a Spleef Arena, but don’t hold back if you have any specialized arena – we might find a good use for it still.

     

    To participate: Build an arena (solo or co op), Upload screenshots to some upload service and paste your screenshots in the commentfield below or the forum (you can also record a video). To help your chances, post the position/coordinates so players can go and look at it. Tell us why your arena is awesome and should be picked.

    And let me get your inputs on PvP arenas in general – anything we should be aware of? How do we implement this in the best way (from your perspective). Should the nether remain PvP after we get arenas etc.

    There will not really be any prize besides the bragging rights – this is mostly made to include you all and give you a chance to set your permanent mark on the server with an official build.

  • Poll: Should the New World be PvP or PvE?

    Should the New World be PvP or PvE?

    • I want PvE - but with with dedicated PvP arena(s) (53%, 56 Votes)
    • I want PvP exactly like in the Old World (47%, 50 Votes)

    Total Voters: 106

    Notice: You must be logged into the forum to be able to make a Vote.
    If you do not have a forum user yet, then create one here.

    So, I am here thinking that making the new world PvE (Player vs Environment = no PvP) could solve a lot of issues in all the reports we constantly get from players (enderpearling, rodding, potions, lava) in and outside claims.
    Also, PvP in a server with a ton of entities like we got and will get in the new world, do lag many of you..(remember this is client lag, not server lag)

    So I just want to hear your guys opinion on which direction we should take this New World – Should we make it more or less a copy of the PvP method we use in the Old World, or should we instead make it no-PvP in most of the world and then make some dedicated PvP arenas where you can combat it out face to face?

    I know making it PvE will take a lot of the excitement out of the game for many of you, but remember the Old World will still remain the same as always. So you could always stay there if you seek that thrill.

    No matter what we decide here, I will still let The End and the Nether be full PvP in the New World.

    If the majority wants PvE, then I will for sure try make some good alternatives for the PvP hungering people – could be the mentioned PvP arenas or even make some dedicated PvP worlds (Hunger Games or similar).
    I am more than willing to take suggestions for what to make next 🙂

  • 1.9 Update

    Hey Everyone!

    As many of you know, Mojang released version 1.9 of Minecraft not too long ago. Surprisingly, the upgrades to Spigot and our plugins isn’t taking as long as I thought it would. There’s still no real ETA for when we will update, but it will be soon.

    That being said, there are a few pressing questions that I would like to allow you guys to vote on before the upgrade; Specifically, whether or not to set PvP on everywhere by removing the ability to toggle it, whether or not the overworld should reset, and whether the Economy should get a massive overhaul (this would only happen if there’s a reset).

    As a reminder, if the overworld is reset, that will reset everything (not Buycraft purchases, those will carry over). This means that everyone will start out from scratch, and on equal footing. If people vote to not do a reset, instead of expanding the world border, I would create a much smaller, temporary world that would get reset every month, similar to the nether and end. Claims would not be allowed in the temp world.

    If the world does reset, this would give us a good opportunity to overhaul the economy. The point of doing the overhaul is because when we add a Skyblock server, the economy will be completely different than the current Economy. The overhaul would try to make things a bit more comparable between the two servers. It would be much more player driven, and prices for things that are super easy to make would be drastically reduced (such as charcoal), and a lot of things would not be able to be sold at all. However, this would also allow us to greatly lower the cost of claim blocks, spawn eggs, sethomes, and other items. It would take some getting used to for sure, but overall it would be much more balanced.

    So read this over, and also check out the forum post to ask any questions and see what others have to say, and then please vote below.

    Because this is using a different site for polling, you must provide your minecraft name for each question. Votes without a name will be ignored.

    Should the overworld be reset?
    Minecraft Name:

    Yes, please reset the overworld
    No, leave it the way it is.

    Do Quizzes

    If there is a reset, should players carry over some benefits, such as their enderchest and inventory?
    Minecraft Name:

    Yes, small benefits are okay
    No, everyone should start equally

    Poll Maker

    Should PvP be on all the time?
    Minecraft Name:

    Yes, PvP should be on for everyone, all the time (except for claims)
    No, leave the ability to toggle PvP

    If the world is reset, should the Economy get an overhaul?
    Minecraft Name:

    Yes, restructure the economy
    No, leave it the way it is

  • New world to play on: Hardcore

    Welcome to Hardcore.

    This world is all about survival of the fittest. There are no second chances: you mess up and die, you’re done.

    The hardcore world is something very different than what you’ve seen on minecraft.dk so far. Very little is “safe”, there is no economy, and if you die, you’re banned.

    I’ll break down the differences by the main plugins we use

    GriefPrevention
    Claims are NOT safe. Players can open doors, chests, kill you, your animals, etc etc. While they can’t break blocks all the time, siege mode is enabled which means you can’t just hide in your claim if you see someone. During siege, they can break stuff like glass, dirt, wood, and a few other blocks. This means if you want to protect your stuff, you pretty much need to build a vault.

    You are limited to 1 9×9 claim. That’s it. When you start out, you begin with a chest. Using the start chest is your only method of claiming. You can move your claim, but you must first break all your chests, unclaim, then place the chest somewhere else. If you die, your claim is automatically abandoned and anyone can loot it.

    Essentials
    Essentials will be doing very little in this world. You don’t have homes, or spawn, and there is no form of server economy. You can trade with people manually, but you run the risk that they will kill you.

    PlayerHeads
    Any time a player dies, no matter what the cause, their head is dropped. When they die, their last coordinates will be displayed in chat, so those who are willing to risk it can go grab the head.

    New plugin HardcoreSuvival
    Really the only thing worth mentioning with this plugin are it’s 2 main features.
    1) It changes how the compass works.
    – Right click will point you to the nearest player’s location at the time of the click. It doesn’t update live, so you’ll need to check frequently to hunt people
    – Left click points you to your base
    2) /setbase
    – since you don’t have /home, you’ll need someway to get back to where you came from. That’s where /setbase comes in. It stores your coordinates so you can find your way back

    Misc details about the world
    First thing you’ll probably notice about it is that it’s much smaller than the regular size world. It only has a 1k block border, so everyone is a bit closer together and it doesn’t take an hour to get from one side of the map to the other. Another thing you’ll quickly notice is that there is world wrapping. This means if you hit the border, you’ll be warped to the other end of the map.

    Sounds interesting, how do I start?
    Simple: Go into the cave at spawn, and walk into the Arches in the center. You’ll be randomly teleported somewhere into the hardcore world. That’s the only way to get there. Then, if you want to get back, you have to disconnect from Hardcore, and when you log back in you’ll be in the regular world (not meant to be super easy to get back and forth)

    Each world will last for about a month (not this first one, as it’s kinda trial version to see what needs to be tweaked). It will be normal hardcore play for 3 weeks, then the last week you guys will be given access to the /spawn command and pvp will be turned off. Each player who wishes to enter the competition will be given some area at spawn designated for them, a spot for them to put all the heads they gathered. The player with the most heads wins. We’ll put up a scoreboard at spawn with the top players and their head counts. (note, it doesn’t matter HOW you get the heads, just that you have them. You could steal or loot them and never kill a soul)

  • 7 days left of the Arena Build Contest

    Quick update 2: Unforseen work came up, so I am giving this deadline 2 more days. (It will end Monday march 10. 2014)

    Quick update: I will end the Arena Build Contest in 7 days from today. (End: Saturday 8. march 2014).

    If you want to participate then be sure to submit your build before that date 🙂 You can either submit your screenshots/video in the commentfield here or at the forum post here.

    We will make a poll right after so we can determine which arenas to go with forward.

  • PvE World Released

    mcpve

    The PvP vs PvE poll ended with a tiny victory to the PvE world – so this is how the New World is now. Though PvP is enabled in the Nether and in The End.

    Notice: If you buy a new rank or upgrade a rank, please visit the old world for it to activate. Ranks will still work in both worlds, but a new purchase only triggers in the old world. (I will change this later)

    Teleport between Worlds:

    • /server lobby
    • /server newworld
    • /server smpworld

    The PvE world will undergo several tweaks. For now the following things have been changed:

    • mcMMO added
    • Unarmed PvP disabled
    • Fireworks when using mcmmo skils disabled (in effect after next restart)
    • Several prices adjusted (Cactus worth nothing, easy dye 0.1 coin)

    Any nerf/tweaking suggestions to mcmmo are welcome.

    I would again like to thank all the builders who participated in the Lobby + Spawn build contest. Congratulations to KingHering and Kosine – both have been awarded their rank and you can enjoy their winning builds ingame.

    Since I will make PvP arenas in both worlds, a new build contest will be made within a few weeks – so find your best blocks and get started now. Make some sweet Arenas for us to PvP in forward. (also spleef).. A new forum thread will be made at a later date, where you can post your builds.

  • How to claim and protect your house / land

    The method used on the server to claim/protect your things, can be a little tricky to learn at first. But when you first get the hang of it, you will enjoy how easy, fast and secure it is.

    Minecraft IP:  play.minecraft.dk

    I’v found a handful of useful videos, shown below, to help you get into the methods and commands to get most out of this server.

    Basic claim

    Claim / protection effectiveness

    Claim / protect Towns

    PvP & Siege

  • Rules

    Recent changes are shown in red text.

    TL;DR:

    Don’t be a jerk to other players, don’t cheat, and you’ll be fine.

    Chat Rules:

    – Treat everyone with respect ingame and in the public chat (Global, Trade, Auction, Chess).

    – Do not swear in public chat. If a word is filtered then it’s not allowed. Placing *’s to make it look like you are swearing or using excessive abbreviations/acronyms to cheat the filter  is also not allowed, and will be treated as actual cursing.

    – No racist, pornographic, drug, political, or religious talk in public chat.

    – Do not spam the chat. You will get muted. This includes yelling in caps.

    – Use channels correctly (eg Trade is ONLY for trade).

    – Minechat is NOT allowed for chatting. It can only be used for teleporting out of nether portals if you are stuck.

    – Only English is allowed in public chat. You are more than welcome to speak whatever language you want in private chat/channels

    – Do not advertise other servers. Not only is it rude, but it will get you banned

    – Do not jokingly or otherwise threaten to hack the server or other players. Know that we do not take such matters lightly and you will be banned permanently

    – If a player name violates chat rules, the account will be banned.

    Game Rules:

    – Do not use any form of minecraft exploit. This includes duplication glitches.  If you use an exploit, you will be permanently banned. Always tell staff if you have found a bug/exploit.

    – No use of mods/clients that give you an advantage over others. If you are caught using mods, you will be permanently banned. The only allowed mods are mods such as optifine, tabbychat, rei’s/zan’s minimap.

    – Cheating the AFK kicker is not allowed. This includes afk pools/carts or using rejoin scripts. Trying to cheat the AFK kicker will get you banned.

    If you are caught cheating to gain mcMMO levels, you risk having that stat reset to 0

    – Using alternate accounts to keep chunks loaded while you play is not allowed.  First offence is warning kick, subsequent offences can result in bans on both accounts

    – Use of ANY scripting/macros is not allowed.

    – You are responsible for your own account. If your friend, family, etc logs in and is caught breaking rules, it is your problem.

    – The server will not reimburse items lost in crashes/rollbacks or from lag.  Know that all public servers are vulnerable to crashes/lag and it can happen to anyone.

    – Do not use /tpa to teleport to people you do not know and trust. If you do, and the person kills you, staff will not intervene and any reports will be ignored/deleted. Only teleport to people you know to be trustworthy. If you are teleporting to make a trade or something similar, use /spawn, and go to a neutral place such as a shop.

    PvP Rules:

     – Do not complain about being killed. This is a pvp server, so people will try and kill you.

    – If you are killed, do not ask staff to get your items back. You will be told no.

    – Consistent harassment is not allowed.

    – Harassment is killing a player around their own claim when it is not wanted more than 5 times, or the player loses their head, whichever happens first.
    The player must make it clear that the pvp is unwelcome in global chat. (example: “I don’t want to pvp you (attacking player). Go away”). The claim must also be an “established” claim, not some dinky temporary thing. Meaning that players would be upset if the claim were to be removed and they lose the claimblocks (not that this would happen, just as an explanation of what type of claim is required).

    Claiming Rules:

    – Traps in or around public areas are not allowed. Public areas include but are not limited to: shops (not necessarily your own),  public xp farms, and public roads. Using any method to kill players in public areas will result in a ban.

    – Unwanted enderpearling, snowballing, egging, etc is not allowed and will get you banned. Friends may enderpearl, etc. each other if all are in agreement. However, you leave yourself open to getting in trouble if your friend decides to report you, so it is suggested that you just don’t enderpearl, etc. at all.

    – Traps around home claims (if they are not near public areas) are allowed. This includes dumping lava on people and setting them of fire, but NOT enderpearling, etc. However, tricking/leading people into claims for the only reason to trap them and combat tag/kill them is NOT allowed. Claims are seen as safe places and are not to be used to kill. If you want to kill someone do it in unclaimed land and pvp them normally.

    – In case it is not clear from the previous two rules, hitting other players with enderpearls, fishing rods, snowballs, etc ANYWHERE (not just outside claims) is not allowed and will likely get you banned.

    Building farms (animals/crops) in the plot world is not allowed. Players are limited to one 9×9 (81 blocks) farm per plot. Animals farms are not allowed. You can use animals for decoration, but that’s it. 

    – To remove someone from your claim, simply do /eject

    – Dumping lava/setting fire to people is only allowed on your personal claims. You are not allowed to do it on claims you only have trust to.

    – You are responsible for players inside your own claim. Only invite people you trust. Server  will not reimburse stolen items.

    – Griefing and stealing from claims is not allowed. Do not trick people into trusting you on a claim so that you can grief/raid it.

    – Claims will be protected ~30 days. If you do not login within that time, you risk having your claim deleted. Note that some claims will be protected for longer than the 30 days, but this is strictly at the discretion of the staff. Also note that staff will not unclaim land for you to raid. You only get the property, not the buildings.

    – Using claims to harass others is not allowed. This includes but is not limited to claiming around other claims and building walls, pits, placing lava. This also includes claiming unclaimed land in the middle of someone else’s land.

    – Using alts/friends to join, sell their starting claim blocks and pay you the money to get rich fast is not allowed and will result in bans for all involved.

    Trading/Shop/Auction Rules:

    – All person-to-person trades are done at the risk of the player (eg. Going behind the jail to trade items). If you are scammed or someone else picks up your items, there will likely be nothing done about it. Simply make a chest shop for high value transactions.

    – Do not abuse the ability to cancel auctions. You are not allowed to cancel auctions simply because the bidding did not reach the value you wanted. If there is a particular price you will not sell below, start the auction at that price. If you are found to be abusing the cancel command, you risk losing your auction privileges.

    – Do not auction anything inappropriate (eg. renaming items into drug and drug paraphernalia).

    – Look at the auction you’re bidding on. If you get scammed because you bought a piece of coal renamed Diamond, that’s your problem. That being said, if you are found to be doing many scam auctions you risk losing your auction privelages

    – Trading real world currency to other players for in-game items/perks is not recommended. These sorts of trades are done at your own risk. Staff will not be involved in any way shape or form. Be smart and don’t give out personal financial information.

    Forum Rules:

    – Post topics in appropriate threads. For example, filing a report on a player should go in the ‘Report a player’ thread.

    – Read and follow the posting guidelines pinned in each thread.

    – Do not spam the forums with posts. Especially for ban appeals. If you need to make a mute/ban appeal, post it, then be patient. It will be processed when we have a chance. Spamming appeals not only will get you in more trouble, but will likely cause the duration of your ban to last longer.

    – Do not “tattle” on other players if you were not directly involved. For example, if you see two people enderpearling each other, but neither of them shows any sign of wanting to report, then do not make a post about it.

    – Do not “resurrect” dead posts. If a post is more than a 3-4 weeks old, it is considered dead, and your post will simply be deleted.

    – Most of the rules in the Chat section apply for the forums as well (eg. Language, advertising other minecraft servers, etc)

     General Rule to keep in mind: Don’t do/say anything that you wouldn’t want people to do/say to you.

    While these may seem like a lot of rules, they each have their purpose and help keep the server running smoothly. If you are confused about any of them, please do not hesitate to make a post in the forums or ask a member of our staff ingame. Please also note that these rules are subject to change and it is your responsibility to occasionally check them. Also note that the staff maintains the right to make judgement calls on situations not covered by these rules.
