1.10 Update Coming. Please Read
#1

 I know it's been far too long since anything was posted. Many of you are probably thinking "Is Xe still alive?"

 
Well sit back and take a moment to read what's in store.
 
Yes, we are and have been but I admit, due to the summer and other life things, quite a few of us have not been in as often as we would like. As school season comes upon us that has been changing and I and staff have been more active.
 
We are now testing 1.10 on the test server and adding in plugins and taking out old ones to prepare for the main server update.
 
This is where the tricky part comes in. There will be a reset for 1.10.
 
I repeat, we are doing a full reset for 1.10. (Moment of silence for those still in shock)
 
"But PUN, all our work, all our efforts!" Yes I know. I always know how difficult it is for some and trust me, if I didn't fully believe a reset is necessary I wouldn't bother but as usual I'm left with very little to no choice.
 
The MAIN reason for this reset is two-fold.
1. The multiverse inventory plugins Multiverse-Inventories and Multi-Inv are both outdated. We have had to switch to an entirely new plugin to handle that.
 
Although the new plugin HAS import potential for the old versions I am not about to risk yet another inventory fiasco and/or even worse problems trying to port over years-old files into a new API.
 
2. Also due to inventories, when I set up the worlds we play on I didn't leave much for placeholders. Meaning any time we wanted to add an inventory specific world, we ran the risk of inventories getting wiped. Again, this is very difficult on my end to try and recover from and equally as frustrating for you as the player. For the 1.10 server I will be putting placehold worlds in that aren't accessible but can be brought online when needed, smoothly, with no interruption or loss of inventory.
 
The other reasons for the reset are the usual...new changes in 1.10 actually affect world generation, new mobs and AI changes affect the living worlds, and not to mention the plethora of abandoned,untidy, builds littering the world.
 
"What about our Xeebles we earned towards ranks?"
 
I will be doing something a bit new this time around. I will pull up the iConomy database list for each user. I will then tally up your total current Xeebles and issue locked tokens (by means of locked chests). Members will receive 100-coins, 500-coins, 1000-coins, 10,000-coins, 50,000-coins etc.. based on their total amount.
 
In other words. If Bobcraft has 43,000 Xeebles at time of reset, he will have a chest in the new world locked to staff only, with his name on it, and the equivalent tokens to match the 43,000 Xeebles. So 4 10,000 coin tokens, and 3 1000 coin tokens.
 
These will NOT be spendable tokens in the normal sense but CAN be used towards your rank update. We will also offer elite items that you can purchase and use some of your tokens towards that item if you like.
 
This will ensure that those who have worked to gain Xeebles for a rank will not lose out on the value they have earned.
 
 
"What about some of our builds that we are working on or don't want to lose?"
 
Those who are building or have built things in Creative world they don't want to lose will be schematic'ed, saved, and brought back into the new creative world. This should be fairly seamless and staff has ways of accurately copy/pasting builds.
 
Builds in MAIN world will be discussed on an individual basis.
 
I ask that you really consider if you must have the current build and that the less schematics we have to port over, the easier on all it will be.
 
Builds in End, Nether, Skyblock, or PVP world will NOT be considering for transport. However, staff may do a bonus for the top 5 islands at the time of reset.
 
"When will this reset happen?"
 
We are tentatively looking at within the next 5 to 7 days that we will be ready, all Xeebles accounted for, and all schematics saved. There is still a bit of testing on the test server to ensure that familiar plugins work how we need them to, and new stuff is working as best it can.
 
 
"Any major surprises coming in this new world?"
 
YES! We are not only adding new, more fun related games and events, but we are bringing back a couple old favorites that have been updated again. I won't spoil it for ya but I can say that this time around we aim to have more games interaction without detracting from the base 'survival' aspect of the game.
 
 
There will be some staff adjustments as well. Non-active staff will be set to Highest-Rank and others who aren't able to contribute as much may be stepped down a staff rank or set to Highest-Rank as well. This will be at Owner discretion.
 
Expect many changes over the next few days and we will probably open up the test server for some proper Beta-Testing before going fully live with 1.10.
 
 
I apologize that this was such a long read but it's quite important and this way you have most of the upcoming info all in one fell swoop.
 
Thank you everyone and here's to another round of awesome!
 

 

 

Check out /warp allshop (almost all items will be bought) This will help you gain more tokens for the 1.10 world! Smile

I was wondering for the "elite items" mentioned if you could add item magnets. Not anything to broken but an item that if held well allow you to pick up items within a seven block radius of you and allows instant item pick up. No more waiting for ten seconds or so. This would also work in the offhand. And to keep it not to cheaty, if it isn't being held, say in your inventory but not hand, then the effects go away.

 

Also I know this probably won't happen but can we rename the ranks. To me it doesn't make sense. Why is donator max not the max? Why is ultra under epic?

This is what I think it should be.

Donator

Donator Plus

Donator Epic

Donator Ultra

Donator Max

Then all the staff ranks.

 

The other idea I had was no names, just numbers. Like Donator tier 1-5

D I

D II

D III

D IV

D \/

 

And you do realize that some people are crafting 8 wood and 1 redstone into note blocks which are worth around 300. That seems broken.

 

The last thing that I think would be cool for then new 1.10 map would be an hour counter. So instead of seeing that Final has died -10 times you see that Pancake has played for over 9,000 hours.

I agree that the rank names could do with being reformed, it would be a big task due to the inevitable "But I was Donator Epic last week, why am I only Donator Max now?" but Nightcraft does make a good point.

 

I will take a look into a magnet item plugin once my exam is over on wednesday and see if there is anything else I can come up with Smile

Rank redesign is already in the works. As are many of my horrible world and fold naming conventions. No more TestPixel or TestWorld for stuff and yes the ranks will make more sense.

 

So I am back from my mini-cation and will be helping to get us ready for reset. Many thanks to FinalFormSora, PancakeMoon, shasmeina, NightCraft, and legoboy678 for their help with plugins, console, spawn builds and fresh ideas on the new 1.10 coming soon.

I agree about the rank renaming or changing the order of the ranks

Love your idea nightt! I would be completely fine with a rank name change. I however do not like the the tiers as much. It just seems like a number. Like I am DIII

 

About that hour counter. "stat.playOneMinute" WOULD BE AMAZING TO DO!

While this topic is still open. Can we be allowed to do /einfo colors
? It will allow us to just simply get the color codes
for all the colors. The best part is. You can modify it! (I think that is still an option)

I've been saying I want a plugin that does this for literally years. I just did this command and it's exactly what I was wanting. I can't believe we've actually had it the whole time lol.

 

You guys are going to love what we have coming on the 1.10 map. We'll post some spoilers soon. Smile
