What Is Xegaming Doing For 1.9?
#1
Yes, the big question on everyone's mind is what is XeGaming going to do for the 'Combat Update'?

 

Long and short of it, we ARE doing a full reset. After much thinking and some discussion with various members and staff, I feel it is time again.

 

I understand that we have had some awesome builds on this go-around and this map has been with us for over a year now.

 

The biggest issues I am having are this...

 

1. The map has gone through a few major revisions so it's got some funky borders, occasional weird world-generation, and world-edit has it's issues with it

when trying to do rollbacks or regens.

 

2. Stagnation has set in again. This means that the economy (although much better balanced this time) is stagnant, not moving. There is no desire or need at this

point in the game to use or push towards making or using shops.  It happens, that's why resets are nice.

 

3. The amount of data we have backed up and archived is more than we can really handle. We have 2 SSD 128GB drives and 1 TB spindle HDD that is getting pushed to its limits due

to all the archives and old saves etc... A full reset would include purging much of this data, thereby freeing up more resources for MineCraft and other games to be hosted.

 

4. Lastly, There are some 1.9 changes coming that would benefit from a full reset like FINALLY more dungeons, better end zone with respawnable dragons apparently, as well as general

overall continuity on the world generation itself.

 

 

I know some won't be happy at all and that's the unfortunate nature of a reset. However, the benefits, I feel, far outweigh the downsides.

 

This of course will mean waiting until plugins that we use are available so we will stay on 1.8 until about 3 weeks from now.

 

I will post again a 7 day countdown to the time I feel will be appropriate for a reset and rebuild.

 

Please understand that as I am the only owner now, I need to make my involvement efficient and easy to maintain for many reasons.

 

 

Thank you everyone and PLEASE comment on your feelings and suggestions for the next round of XeGaming MC Smile

The occasional reset is a good thing. Let me know if any of our plugins need updating when you're ready Smile

 

Edit: Also, if you still have those old chestshop php pages, I'd be happy to get those working again for a more competitive market!

Hey, Pun!  Let me know when you're ready, and I can push the OS updates.  We have several pending, and it will require a reboot to get the new kernel running.  Just give me a time frame, and we can work out a schedule.  Cool?

When it's time, I will probably be hitting you up for a few updates, especially to those outdated or obsolete plugins we still like to use.

 

I plan on pulling a few of em that we really don't use, as well, so that we can lighten the overall load. Smile

Yeah, I'm sure there's a number of them. I think I added portal like jump pads to XBounce a while ago too, just never mentioned it for some reason... They could make for some cool contraptions/parkour! Big Grin

I don't personally like factions as it causes lots of raging from griefing and betrayal and what not. But hey, thats my opinion Smile

Yeap its me back from the dead. anyways i highly doubt that the faction mod or plugin would be installed on the server unless it was a completely different world or one linked to the freshly made world. this is because while many like the PvP style it as you mentioned tends to frustrate people. moderators and that what not would be on a little bit more of a heavy duty as they have to watch some battles where aim bot from stuff like 'notice'(forget how its spelt..) could take place.

Plus there is the entire multi-world problem too... however my main point is i dont think PvP factions will be installed until we get more members.
