Hey guys, here's another newsletter compiling the recent news and some othr thins, so let's get started.
We're sad to announce the previous protection plugin "Protection Stones" is currently outdated and does not show signs of updating at this point.
I have spent a short amount of time looking for a new plugin and have looked at a plugin I have worked with in the past that seems to be producing multiple updates(Even in the last 12hours), Before making it a definite I would like to see opinions of players, I will temporarily load it onto the server and then if the event of no one liking it happens I will re think and try to find a suitable plugin to replace Protection Stones,
This is a very old but extremely efficient protection plugin that will provide players with many options of what they want in their land, Such as sub division plots inside of your overall plot for use in towns and other builds, From our knowledge there are currently very little if any exploits to bypass its protection systems.I wait to see your opinion but I hope you will at least give it a try to see how well it works and decide then if you'd like this to be a permanent change
We would also like to address the question of what will happen with the old map, Due to Protection Stones no longer functioning correctly we will be removing it and all its protections, but will also enable Grief-Prevention so that this world can still remain un griefed. At this moment in time we have not decided on how long this map will remain but I would say 2 months if not more, The longer we have it the more likely will occur due to the map loading in a former version of minecraft.
Today I am here to again address the issues we are facing with donations, each day we get closer to the day of closure at this time. We have quickly tried to release Timebomb, and Survival to invite a few more people onto the server, TimeBomb is currently waiting on maps but has a tiny one where you can understand the basis of the game.
Survival is have a new 1.8 world, new spawn, new perks - It is no complete but if we can successfully keep the servers for this month it will be fully done for next month.
Ranks had a vote to if they would change over the past few days and the votes are in at 13-5 currently to change the ranks, so over the coming week we will be switching ranks into a new format.
Recently, we have noticed a lac in staff application quality, Night, our web manager recently released an ideal application, when applying, please refer to that to make sure yours is better and follow the format, not doing so will result in a decline. Please mae sure, if a friend of yours is applying, please make sure he/she refers to both threads.
We hope to maintain the server for anothr month, which is looking to be quite promising.
