Server work in the near future.

Sometime in the next week I will be replacing my network router, as it is having problem with its wireless connection.  I will try to make it quick and keep the server offline as little as possible.  I will give anyone on the server at the time notice and do a save/backup cycle before taking it offline.

Also I will be deleting the Scavenger Hunt world this weekend, probably Saturday night or Sunday morning.  If you want anything you left behind use a Zeerix's chest rune to go get it.  And then I will start experimenting with the Terrain Control plugin, which will be used if/when we reseed the main world.

Space X Falcon 9 Launch

Saturday morning about 1am our time SpaceX will launch their Falcon 9 Rocket with the Dragon Spacecraft for the, hopefully, first docking of a commercial launch system with the International Space station.  I will be staying up however late it takes to watch it live on their website.

Hopefully we have another successful launch like we did last time.

Scavenger Hunt Loot

You can pickup your materials gathered during the scavenger hunt outside the north gate of Central Hub.  They chests will remain there for 2 weeks then be deleted. Also the prize blocks have been placed in the winners residences for them to collect, or leave if they like to show off!

Jail!

I have built a jail and incarcerated the first person there. A few days ago we had someone named MinuteMAKER come in and start advertising for his server.  That was bad enough, but then he started insulting Meridiana and he is now in jail.  The jail is below Spawn, and there is a teleport to look inside the jail from a viewing level.  The jail includes 8 monster spawners 4 zombie, 2 skeleton, and 2 Cave Spider spawners.  Anyone placed in jail is stuck there, and thier username in chat will be prefixed with "Jailed - "  in yellow.  Have fun watching them die repeatedly while they are in jail.

Scavenger Hunt is over!

Well finishing much faster then I expected the scavenger hunt is over.

1st place - Nitemayr
2nd place - Meridiana
3rd place - Sulu99

Congrats as an extra bonus prize they win in order or place:
1st Diamond Pickaxe with Furtune3, Unbreaking3, and Efficancy3
2nd Diamond Pickaxe with Furtune2, Unbreaking2, and Efficancy2
3rd Diamond Pickaxe with Furtune1, Unbreaking1, and Efficancy1

I will award the Pickaxes right away. And on Tuesday night probably around 12am PST (midnight) I will copy the chests over to the regular world. So if there is anything you want to bring over to the regular world bring it to the Spawn center in ScavangerHunt world.

Also MCMMO and Zeerix's chest are renabled.  You could use Zerrix's chest to bring your stuff from the scavenger hunt world to the regular world if you are in a hurry.

Scavenger Hunt is On!

The 1st Scavenger Hunt is on, start your hunt in the Scavenger Hunt world now.  Take the Creative world portal and follow the signs. Check your assigned chests to be sure they work, if not let an admin know.

Things to remember:
Scavenger Hunt world is set to Hard mode, Hunger will kill you.
PVP is off in the Scavenger Hunt world, and Greifing is an automatic disqualification.
MCMMO is off for this week, sorry but it would make certain people have a huge advantage for the scavenger hunt.



 

Scavenger Hunt update.

The Scavenger hunt starts on Sunday at 12pm PST.  The server will require a quick reboot before we can start the hunt. I hope to do it between 11:30am and 11:45am, should be very short, less then 1 minute for the reboot.  At that time I will be disabling MCMMO for the duration of the Scavenger Hunt.  The chests are setup for your scavenged materials. And the door to the Scavenger Hunt spawn center will get its inside switch at 12pm Sunday. See you guys there.

Scavenger hunt list is DONE!

The List is here!  Gather all these items first in 1 week and you could win the above prizes!
