As the subject line suggests, this topic will be about the server that I will be making public later today. It's not a vanilla server, just to get that out of the way. The server has been 'set up' but it has not been overbuilt.
We are using a variety of plug-ins for hMod which will surely affect your gaming experience. I will not list them because that would give away some of the surprise. We mostly tried to make the experience a little more difficult, but still fun and rewarding. You will find that a lot of varying loot will drop from commonly found resources, making gathering much more rewarding and mysterious. I bet if I went outside and started chopping branches off of trees i would have a slight chance of obtaining sticks, apples, leaves, and even seedlings!
We have an experience system which requires you to advance in levels before using more powerful weapons and armor. You can, however, still use high level tools for gathering and whatnot. No attacking with 'em though =P
Entering our server, you will find you've gained a stomach. You must fill this stomach with GOOD food, or else die slowly from starvation. I'm going to stress this because it is very important that you feed yourself. DO YOU WANT TO STARVE TO DEATH?! This plugin will NOT be deactivated
PVP is enabled, as well as a party system which allows you to band together, eliminating friendly fire and enabling shared experience. I strongly recommend partying up, I mean ... the real xp is in those damn creepers, and WHAT is more fun than ganking a creeper double, triple, and even octaple-team style? We have 'set up' a few areas that are ready to be ransacked! Zombie Houses, Spider Dens, ZombiePigmen Domiciles, and Skeleton Archer Towers! There will also be puzzles with movable blocks, secret switches and perhaps traps?
Ranged combat, however much all of us enjoy it, does not render experience points, not my choice, folks.
There is already a selected group of trusted admins who will serve as your super-cool moderators, so VIP-requests need not apply [for now].
Admins: uldamoc, Ragnargraf, Matimal, and yours truly.
There will be no whitelist because that sorta defeats the idea of a public server. I am hoping that we can get some enthusiastic crafters to come and join who want to have a good time. This is not a Creative 2.0, though we do encourage the construction of cool stuff!
Have fun, read the helpful signs at the spawn sanctuary, respect each other (and the admins), keep your belly full, and good luck!
I'm glad people are interested in this! We are finishing up some final touches, making sure the server is ready for people to join. I don't want to get it up and have to restart a number of times because I forgot to add this or I shouldn't have added that.
Wow this seems great can't wait to get on to this later. One suggestion though, I think you should cuboid protect all pre-made structures due to the fact that once all these puzzles/buildings have been used people will want to explore, make bases and taking items from old ones may make this too easy, this is just my two cents.
ps: I will still join either way :smile.gif: unless the server is already full before I get there!!!

Don't worry we have many different basic "mob huts" saved in cuboid and try to make them slightly different when we place them down (you know.. to like fit the surroundings better). So you can ransack and destroy them as much as the structure will allow you to do so. We will try to make many different types of special or harder mob huts. (Maybe you guys can help, we like variety :biggrin.gif:). We are also gonna try to mess with "triggering blocks" so this allows for very "fun" traps or fight sequences to go down. A boss battle perhaps?
The world isn't huge yet but we shall keep adding activities as we go along. Maybe you will build a fortress and find out the next day there is a spider den just outside the walls! Unfortunately, we cant JUST randomly generate all this sweet stuff.. lol.. but we will try to keep adding to the game play as much as possible.
(BTW MOB SPAWNERS DROP RANDOM LOOT SO MAKE SURE TO SMASH 'EM!)
I'm confused as to why I got banned...? all I know is beeninja was claiming I was griefing his base when I was actually hiding a secret stash and I got banned minutes later by ulda?
Hiding a secret stash in someone else base? That's not very secret. I banned you, not uldamoc. You were taking people's joy from them. I agree that PvP is a legit way to play, but it can also be rather intrusive on another person's good time.
