Date of change(s) completion:

October 17th, 2019

Description of changes:

  • The way the server prevents mob griefing has been changed.
    • The gamerule mobGriefing has been re-enabled. This is because disabling this gamerule prevents game mechanics such as:
      • Villagers being able to pick up items/food for faster breeding
      • Sheep being able to eat grass to grow more wool
    • A plugin has replaced this functionality. Mobs will still not be able to grief, just some harmless game mechanics have returned.
  • Elytras have been added to the server in-game shop (adminshop).
  • Villager mob spawn eggs have been added to the server in-game shop (adminshop).

Notes:

None.

February 25th, 2020

Description of changes:

  • Due to some issues encountered with the Wilderness TP plugin (/wild) and the new version, it has been replaced with a new plugin.
    • New command: /rtp
    • Bronze Premium users and higher can use /rtp biome <biome> to teleport to a random specified biome type.
  • The ClearLag plugin has been adjusted to be more reasonable for players.
    • Items/drops, minecarts, and boats will no longer be automatically removed. These were previously removed if they were not in use by a player.
    • The only entities that will be removed by the automatic removal task are discrepancies:
      • TNT stuck in the primed state
      • Blocks stuck in the falling state
      • EXP that avoided despawning through a glitch
      • Projectiles that avoided despawning through a glitch
    • Nothing aside from these discrepancies will be automatically removed by the plugin.
  • Added legacy connection support for 1.15.x, 1.14.x, 1.13.x, 1.12.x, 1.11.x, 1.10.x, 1.9.x, 1.8.x, 1.7.x, 1.6.x, 1.5.x, and 1.4.7.
    • This means that while the server is 1.15.2, players on any of the listed version above can connect and play seamlessly.
  • All voting sites in /vote should now be functional and give proper rewards.
  • Adjusted the anti-cheat to prevent some false-positives that would occur when trying to stack blocks vertically under yourself. The anti-cheat will no longer push players off.
  • Adjusted the spawn region so that it is now a healing/"hospital" zone. Health and food will replenish at a rate of 2 with a delay of 1 in the spawn region.
  • Changed gamerule doInsomnia to false. This means that phantoms will no longer spawn. These hostile mobs were seen as pointless by the community.
    • Due to this, Phantom Membrane will now be sold in the server admin shop for 100 (in-game credits) buy and 25 (in-game credits) sell.
  • Per community feedback and balancing with players keeping inventory after dying, the server difficulty has been changed from normal to hard. This helps speed up villager trading in addition to making the game a bit more of a challenge. Note that players will still lose EXP after dying.

Notes:

None.

Description of changes:

  • The anti-cheat has been updated to address more types of cheats and lower the amount of false positives.
  • Prices in the in-game admin shop have been updated to reflect the economy with jobs. Keep in mind that the admin shop is intended to be high priced and low sell prices to encourage a player-based shop economy.
    • Phantom Membrane: 200 B; 25 S
    • Iron Ingot (x16): 800 B; 100 S
    • Gold Ingot (x16): 1120 B; 140 S
    • Diamond (x16): 3200 B; 400 S
    • Redstone (x16): 480 B; 60 S
  • Balanced the jobs economy.
    • The number of jobs each player can have has been limited to one.
    • The hunter job has been adjusted so that mob farms do not ruin the economy. Hunters will get less money for killing certain mobs now.

Description of changes:

  • The new PvP arena has been fully built and is now released!
    • Use /warp pvp to enter the pvp arena.
  • Per player suggestions, a /keepinventory [enable/disable] command has been added. This has been programmed into IMS Core.
    • This command allows each player to toggle on keepInventory mode or toggle it off.
    • By default, this mode is on for all players. Some players prefer to have a greater challenge, so we have added this command to allow per-player settings regarding keepInventory.
    • /keepinventory - When issued with no parameters, it will tell you your current keepInventory state:
      • jKB1Lwx.png
    • /keepinventory enable/disable - When issued with enable or disable, it will toggle keepInventory to the specified state.
      • UDO54wy.png
      • yRh2VFx.png
  • Some server network adjustments have been made to help with some issues some players with high ping experienced.
  • Due to recent revelations regarding the anti-cheat and the server being more populated, the anti-cheat has been entirely replaced. Previously, the anti-cheat had a lot of false positives. While we had heavily adjusted the plugin to help, the plugin itself does not seem to be structurally sound enough to be on a live server. The anti-cheat itself has been entirely replaced and we hope that the new anti-cheat will prove to be more helpful. Our primary goal in replacing this anti-cheat is to stop it from punishing and disrupting players who are not cheating--obviously. We kept this in mind while researching and looking for a new anti-cheat, and the new one is well known for not having many, if any, false positives.
    • Please let a member of management know if you encounter any issues, especially frequent false positives, with the new anti-cheat.
  • PetBlocks has been updated and fixed.

Description of changes:

  • The nether has been expanded exponentially. See the dynmap for details.
  • Due to the nether no longer being precicsely bordered with 1/8th of the proportions of the regular world, nether portals were able to be used in the nether to surpass the main world's world border. This was a problem because it allowed for players to get past the world border of the main world, resulting in chunks being generated, which can cause server and client lag. The maps are pregenerated to prevent this.
    • Due to this, nether portals have been disabled while in the nether, please use a home warp, regular warp, or /spawn to leave the nether.
    • This will be in place until Minecraft puts a fix in to this world border issue.

Notes:

None.
