Whats new with you?
New No-Lag and Memory Increase!
So, Its been a while since the last post. We have decided to keep you guys updated weekly! Meaning, there will be at least 1 new post each week. So now that you are informed lets get on with the news!
WELL! As you might have noticed there has been some lag issues going on within the server. As of 9/9/2015 That has been abolished! We have copied our files from our very old and distraught virtual machine and created a new one using a Linux Debian based OS. Meaning its the best Software for Minecraft server hosting. We also now use Java 8 so new plugins and less ram leakage occurs. So everything should be as smooth as a cucumber.
So whats new with hub? We got new minigames in the works and things getting built. What do we have out currently?
Minigames: TNT Run, SkyWars, Spleef, and Snake.
New Minigame Maps:
We have a custom TNT Run plugin developed by yours truly, it has been our main focus for now. Soon each minigame plugin will be custom so it runs smoother and fits PlanetCraftation's style.
Right click the npc to join a game!
On hover you can see what map you are choosing, what the current status is and how many players are playing! With one click you can join it!
Magnet (Donators only map):
Hub has gotten redecorated! With new Minigame join npc's and new displays!
No exact release date atm (Within the next few months).
New Spawn Redecoration:
So whats going on with factions? We have decided to go off in a new direction attempting to make it the most original factions server currently out there! We have came up with an idea to have 4 specialists you can specialize in. 1.) Demolitionist. - Destroys obsidian a lot easier. "TNT" 2.) Knight. - Specializes in killing and weapons. 3.) Magic. - Specializes in spells beyond the mortals grasp! 4.) To be released in 1.9 ;).
The server have been fine tuned to each specialist. Such as Obsidian is a lot harder to break now (about 4-6 TNT blasts per block to break). But Demolitionists can break it 3 times faster with 1 TNT blast. Custom enchantments have also been added to the server for Knights and Magic. That's just a little taste of whats to come, more details on factions coming soon!
So why survival? We have gotten some special plugins such as Title Action, Making the chat less cluttered with killing mobs and receiving constant notices about it. Now it will display above your action bar! It also displays when you enter important regions. Such as a players claimed base or entering the wilderness. It also displays things in the title screen such as entering spawn or the mine world!
No exact release date atm.
No... no... we haven't forgotten about SkyGrid. It will be coming soon. Sorry for the late up date.
We have a basic skylands spawn with a few shops and tutorials to get you guys started. Voting will be the key to an ultimate SkyGrid survival.
Sorry there has been so little updates lately. Most of our staff including me are going on our Senior year in high school and once we graduate you will have our undivided attention :) Oh yeah! Btw guys I have gotten another name change. What was spdjacobmsnclone, then > lSilverShadowl, is now finally > RockinChaos. This hopefully will be my final name change. Im feeling it lol. Accounts that are actually me: RockinChaos - Main, lSilverShadowl - ALT, Vedextrium - Testing Account (Vanilla User).
Note: There have been some Lag issues with the Hub server recently and we are undergoing a process to treat that so please be patient.
More info on Minigames, and the release of Factions coming soon! A poll for what you guys would like to see on the server in the future will also be coming soon.
Feel free to post below and tell me how your day is and what you would like to see on the server. Have a Crafty day!
