We have a new plugin on the server. This plugin promotes both PlayerShops and voting by allowing you to buy advertising for your shop with vote points. It also replaces the current broadcast system.
What does it do?
By typing "/shopad buy <content ...>" you can buy an advertisement. This will be added to a cycle. One ad from the cycle will be run every 5 minutes and your ad will be in the cycle for 24 hours. This costs 5 vote points.
What can I advertise?
You can advertise your playershop or your town/nation. Clicking on the ad will attempt to teleport you to the advertiser's playerwarp, if they have a playerwarp and it is public. Staff reserve the right to remove advertisements that do not follow the server rules. Personal attacks are also prohibited. Abuse of this system will be severely punished.
When can I start?
The plugin is on the server now. Please report any bugs to the staff so they can be fixed as soon as possible. Report inappropriate...
Most of you know that the player shops are available and located in the new spawn. They officially cost $100,000 and have a daily tax of $500. Their primary purpose is as shops. They are also limited to one plot per player.
Some of you may have noticed that they have sold out. I will not be adding more in the short term. I would like to see the existing plots develop before releasing any more. If you are not planning on making a real shop in the short term I encourage you to sell your plot. You may sell it at whatever amount you value your plot, even if it's above the original $100,000 price.
I will be actively monitoring shops and I may put your plot for sale if you are not using it. Plots that remain empty, out of stock, or that are not shops for a few days will be put for sale.
I understand that it takes time to design, build and stock a shop. I encourage players to get started as soon as possible so I know that you are in fact working on something. If you're worried, just...
The server has been very quiet recently, so it seems a reset poll is in order.
If we reset, the new world will be generated in 1.12 until the update is released. The world border will be set at +/- 5,000 blocks so that everyone may get started. Upon release of and update to 1.13, the world border will be expanded to +/- 15,000 blocks. New terrain generated after the update will be generated with 1.13 and all new items/biomes will be available with it.
As is the standard protocol with resets, all items (including money, vote points, mcmmo, jobs, warps, etc.) will be reset. The creative server will be completely unaffected. New this time, monetary donations in the donation store will be blocked for the first week after the reset to allow all players to get started on an even playing field. After the one week, donations will be available as normal.
You may have noticed that the poll has three options. The first is pretty standard, nothing changes. The second involves a...
Large plots are now available on the creative server at /warp Creative. They are 128 blocks squared and cost 50 vote points. You do not have access to any by default, but if you're looking to get started without waiting to collect 50 vote points, the donation store listings have been updated.
In addition to the 4 regular plots to start with:
Redstone Rank now gets 8 total regular plots and 1 large plot
Gold Rank now gets 12 total regular plots and 2 large plots
Diamond Rank now gets 16 total regular plots and 3 large plots
The donation store now also includes the ability to buy 4 regular plots for US$2 or one large plot for US$5. For more plots, the quantities of both items can be changed in the cart.
Finally, we are experimenting with a different plugin for WorldEdit; hopefully, it will allow users to do more in one operation than previously possible. Please be patient with any issues that arise.
The voting system has been updated. It is now possible to receive votes on the creative server. When you vote, you will get one vote point. This point will go to the server you are currently online in. If you are not on either server, it will go to the server you next log into. Currently rewards consist of extra plots and real mobs.
On another note, the next Build Competition will be on May 12 at 7:30 Central.
As always, suggestions are always welcome, for voting or themes and topics for build competitions.
