I was excited to get online too, but I haven't seen my Aunt and Uncle for a few years. However, I've got some news. I've been plugin-hunting for game features that would benefit the zombie apocalypse experience, and I've been getting some good finds. For one, I think creepers don't fit the theme 100%, and are overpowered considering the small amount of shelter there is at the moment, and this also means I don't have to backup the map so much. There's a plugin that allows creepers to explode without destroying blocks, which is awesome and doesn't totally ruin them as a mob. I'm still trying to find a way to limit the mobs that spawn, so that there are no spiders.
Also, I've been experimenting with different chat and global chat features. Those of you who were online on Sunday experienced the distance-based chat, where being too far away causes you to not be able to communicate using in-game chat. Global chat was a command that I used to talk to everyone on the server, regardless of where they are. Survivors will be able to purchase special broadcasting radios allowing them to use this feature as well. Otherwise, they can only pick up signals from their AM/FM radio tuners or other devices. This works pretty well and I hope to make it more complicated (like allowing specific people to use certain frequencies to communicate with each other, so only people who are in the cool kids club may join the chat channel, and thus see the chat).
Zombie Pigmen were reskinned as cannibals that are neutral and wear a Leatherface mask (haha). They are neutral to humans and mumble low growls, but once one is attacked, any and all cannibals nearby will fly into a rage and attack the player. Their original programmed AI really work good for their new purpose.
The Texture pack is almost completed, and will be given the title of "C" when it is complete. Everyone currently has the "B" Beta skin, so I'll update the original post when the new skin is ready to go. After "C", the skin mod will revert to the original title of "Genetech II", and will quite possibly be updated to "Genetech III" in the future (prompting me to make another Genetech Station (for those who've seen my youtube videos :biggrin.gif:)).
Stay tuned for more information. Remember to lock your doors and windows. Stay inside, and avoid contact with strange persons and animals. This has been a Public Service Announcement from Conelrad Radio 640
minecraftmasta - You don't need to apply more than once. I understand that you want to get in, but so far you've not proven to me that you can be mature enough. Especially with the amount of times you've posted so far.
Oh well i guess i can do something else then i mean it does not matter that much i just want something to do in my freetime but if you won't put me on the list i do other thing's you would have to know me to see that i'm mature
Please return to my original post and download the updated skin pack, Genetech II B. You will require this one instead of the original version that you may have. After you have installed the skin pack, join the server at:
Remember, this server uses a whitelist. If you want to play, you'll need to apply using the few questions in the original post.
That was fun today, good game guys. Unfortunately I have to go to work now, but I'll be running the server same time tomorrow. For those who are worried about not getting in, weekends are the best. I have Sunday and Monday off from work, meaning the server will probably run for most of the day.
this guy got banned from our server too, just ignore him, drago, the first thing to do is stop pitching a fit and use regular fonts. everyone will think you're immature if u act like it.
