In memory of doorgunnerjgs
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 8 February 2023 at 3:22
Most players here will be familiar with doorgunnerjgs, a regular that's been with us for many years. Unfortunately, I have to inform you that he passed away last week, on January 31rd, at the age of 79. As you might be aware, door was invited to play with us by his son, Exodio (hi Uncle Sal!). His grandsons have also spent quite a bit of time with us: AlphaSniper828, Aaranvor, KylosaurusRenx and AwesomeBoyStar and dinosaureats, plus other friends and relatives. These would sometime mee ...

Fight through the tall grass!
Update by Doctacosa
Started by Administrator on 3 February 2023 at 22:02
Whenever you're exploring and you face tall grass, you're never sure what's hiding behind it. Worse, if you're playing in science areas, you can't hit mobs through it. What a bother. We have added a new server plugin to solve exactly this: if you try to attack an enemy through any tall plant, your hit will carry instead of being stopped by the scenery. Thanks to GodofRandom23 for the suggestion!

Potential clean-up in past contest areas

All contest areas are usually set around a given theme and have been designed to have a cohesive look amongst all buildings. New additions after the contests are usually welcomed, as long as they stick to the known theme and follow the same rules as the existing entries.

To help keep that unified, clean look, I'm adding an extra guideline today: at the staff's discretion, builds within former contest areas that don't belong are subject to be removed after two months of inac ...

I've started the update process for 1.14 and performed a dry run to see how the new version will work with our current setup. Unfortunately, a major complication has shown up: the plugin that's currently in place to track the player statistics is not compatible with 1.14 and its author has abandoned it. While it would be possible to move forward without it, it's tied to a lot of systems: achievements, player profiles, griefing tracking, and more. Considering that the achieveme ...
