Tweaks to user permissions

Been working on getting some extra user permissions and privileges for the the Regulars and Lanners on the server.

Regulars have access to
/sethome - sets a teleport point at that location
/home - teleports you to where ever you do /sethome
6 Residence lots total

Lanners have access to all the regulars have +
/spawn - teleports you to the world spawn coordinates.
8 Redisence lots.

There will be more comming and eventually a Page with all this information on it all the time.

We are the official PDXLan Minecraft Server

We are just a bunch of Minecrafters having fun. This webpage and the server itself are in a constant state of improvement. If you see an issue let me know in the forums, or by email, and I will do my best to fix it for you. I want this server to be the best Minecraft server we can make in Portland Oregon. Tell all your freinds, lets make this server hop. The website is looking for people to contribute information about Minecraft, Runecraft, MCMMO, and even general news. Also would love to get a little help customizing the style of the website, let me know if you can help out.

IRC chat up and running.

I have integrated an IRC chat bot into the server, and have added a page to the Website with an IRC chat window. Channel password is 'PDXMC' use whatever nickname you want. To connect with an IRC client the server is, and the channel is PDX-Minecraft. Enjoy, if this becomes a spam issue or there are any problems, let me know.

Usefull commands:

From IRC to see who is on the server - !players
From server to see who is on IRC - /names

PDX Minecraft Mumble server available.

As part of my perperations for the trip to The End. Jimmy3139 broached the subject of Voice communications, and I thought it was a wonderful idea. So we now have a PDX Minecraft Mumble server.

Address:  (hopefully soon)
Portnumber:    64738
Password:        PDXMC (this will be changed occasionally)

Download Mumble here from Sourceforge

Residence Area Protection

Residence is a self serve area protection system, that the users can use to protect their projects outside of the Hub cities.  Its use is simple, but offers many options one example are the Hub cities. When you enter Central Hub it tells you, this is the Enter message, when you leave it gives you the leave message.

Here are some simple instructions, I will link to the Residence Wiki at the bottom of the post.

Creating a Residence:
1. Using a stick, left click for one corner, and right click for the other corner. These would be the opposite corners of a Rectangle. (maximum of 200x200 blocks and 4 residences per person)
2. run the command "/res select vert" this will set your selection to the full world height bedrock to the top.
3. run the command "/res create [name]" this will create the residence called whatever you type in place of [name].
4. to remove a residence if you want to change it or make a mistake "/res remove [name]"

The command to set an enter/leave message is: "/res message [name] (enter or leave) {message}" Your enter or leave message will become whatever is in {message}

Those are the basics of protecting your area, this will keep anyone from damaging the areas you protect. There are many more settings including ones to allow others to build or take from chests in your area. Please make use of this great plugin, it is only a matter of when not if we get a griefer in here. If you have any trouble, please ask.

An ounce of prevention is worth its weight in gold blocks!
