So, as you all know the server is just now starting up, so naturally there's a lot of (as Fulsy put it) kinks to iron out. We're essentially starting anew in many aspects, mainly minecraft related.

After the whole sheep fiasco today, I figured it would be best to consolidate all of these issues and suggestions and what not into one thread. So not to take a liberty that's not mine per se, I'm creating this thread here to do just that. (Sorry Lord Karl)

Below are a list of current issues and possibly what we may do to fix them:

Bugs:
  • Lack of naturally spawned mobs: We're working on it. We have reason to suspect a mob cap issue, and as some players have pointed out the mob cap on multiplayer doesn't quite work like that. We're looking into it, we promise, and if you lost any animals we will replace.
  • Hunger not functional: We're working on it.
  • No endermen: The difficulty is on easy for now. We don't know if we intent to change that. It'll require some consensus further down the road

Feature suggestions:
  • PrivWarps: Will work on it right when i get the source code, like, tomorrow
  • Change the color of the normal rank to green: Totally agree, but we need more staff consensus there

If you have anything to add, just comment here and i'll add it! Thanks

Everything sounds pretty good,
It would be nice to get the old rank colors in order, like you said.

One thing that could be added is the donations. VIP/VIP+ and who knows what else kind of features. I know that's in the works as well, just thought I'd remind? :)

Regarding the color of the "normal" rank, I don't really care one way or the other, but I feel like the current gray/white is satisfactory for the "standard", low rank. I don't like grey, and I think white would be preferred. Anyways, It would be nice to see something to distinguish our real committed members and veterans from those new players who have only just put their name in. If possible, I think it might be even more interesting to see colored prefixes also. It could be something to better distinguish those specific members of the community, while leaving the full colored names for the more significant ranks.

Now, I'm just throwing out ideas, and I'm probably overthinking this, but if it were me I'd set something up like this:

Spoiler: Show

Prefixes could be for other notable things besides [VIP] also... whatever comes to mind.
I like a similar prefix color for all staff, to distinguish them easier, but the name color varies. If prefixes aren't an option, I think it'd be best to change VIP to its own color and leave the rest as shown.
Fulsy made the recommendation for the tags to be behind the name instead to prevent the idea that there are clans/factions.

I know this isn't such a big deal, but it does make quite a difference. It'd be nice to have something easy to interpret with little clutter or headache inducing variation.

While not server related, I'd like to point out that after the server shut down I got a new minecraft account, as before me and my brother were sharing the Nightmaresplody account, and would pop on the server and carry on as we would. Now that we each have our own account I'd like to mention that I'll be on as "square_of_light" while he has the old Nightmaresplody name.

kay bye

what's the progress of updating to 1.8 look like at the moment. At least as far as i can tell on loosing players, school has started and people are going back, having less time to play. and second with a new big update out... well, would you rather play on a server behind a version, or would you rather play one up to date.

It was quite hard to follow up on all the Bukkit drama that had been going on a few months back. I'll be taking the Minecraft server offline shortly pending a decision on wether or not I'll keep the physical machine in my resource pool.
