Hello guys, here again to give you another news letter of the recent updates occurring on heroworld!
Last month it came to our attention that people didn't not like the changes we made such as adding multiple servers rather than the single Survival server, Many found it less enjoyable and more confusing then it had previously been.
After a few hours of consideration we decided it would be best to go with public vote of reverting to a single server. After this was decided I decided I would remake Survival fully but at the same time try to bring back the old features to make it new but still the same as it was originally with extra(I will talk about this in the next section)
Doing this we significantly cut the server costs allowing us to spend less time worrying about how we would survive the next month and more onto what we can do to make the server more enjoyable to you.
When it came to remaking Survival we put a lot of effort into trying to restore the server to its original state but with added features, Recently we found out the Protection Stones(The Blocks protection: Coal, Lapis, Diamond) plugin had been updated to a state that was use able to we have decided to bring this feature back, This was highly wanted and over time we hope to advance this plugin to allow more customization to it to make it better for you guys and better as a protection plugin to reduce griefing on the server.
During this update we have also tried to complete the donator perks and add to them to make the ranks give more perks so you get more for your money, Perks can be viewed by clicking on the rank at the donation store(go to http://heroworldmc.buycraft.net/category/401653 and click a rank and it will show a display of all the features you receive by donating for that rank and all the ranks before it)
Many of you had wondered what happened to being able to freely pvp wherever you wanted, We found that this perk would not be fun for some people trying to play peacefully but for those willing to take the risk can do /pvptoggle to turn pvp off or on so you can then pvp with other players who have there pvp set to on.
One other thing to note during this update is that we have no removed the old world, Homes+Economy have had to be reset otherwise some players would have a massive advantage due to money glitches but we have now made it so economy is more fair. Inventories in the old world are still available there but are separated from the new world so you can choose if you will carry on in the old world or start a fresh in the new world that has been loaded with 1.8 terrain so new blocks giving a new adventure for you all.
We have brought back another amount of plugins such as McMMo, Lockette and ChestShop which have all been requested in the past to add a new experience and more enjoyable one for you all.
Over this period of time there have been multiple changes within the staff team. Due to many staff now becoming more and more busy during exams a lot of have decided to resign and hope to come back in the future, I would like to announce who has been demoted here today and Which staff are around and at what rank.
All the staff listed above have unfortunately been demoted or resigned due to exams or family stuff.
Current Staff Team:
Owner - Bartso32
Owner/Manager - Ipr0james
Admins - Night__(NightFury365) And Speaker_24
Moderators - Sujkid77, Brainfroot, _Domo_, Skip_ And SteedyPlaysMC
At this time it is undecided on what will happen to the builder rank, We may no longer have a full build team but just a gathering of experienced builders as a full build team is not as needed on a single server but we will still consider keeping it. Also the rank Helper has been completely removed and we are introducing trial moderator instead.
