Ok guys, I have a lot to talk about. To sum it up, we have had some huge problems, but a lot of good is going to come out of it.
A combination of serious problems with Avante hosting have occured. First, their site went down right as we needed to renew, effectively putting the server in "suspension mode" until we could pay our fees to renew.
We had no choice but to wait this part out. After a couple days, the website was back up, and we were able to pay again. Then, paradox had some problems with his paypal account, and had to wait a couple days to sort it out.
After he got his paypal straightened out, he went back to renew the server and we found that it had been taken out of "suspension mode" and put into "deleted mode." Basically, without telling us, Avante hosting decided to delete our files permanently. Paradox tried to consult with Avante, but apparently after only a few days they delete your server files with no way to recover. We were obviously very frustrated because of this.
Unfortunately, that's it. The server we had is gone.
That's the end of the bad stuff.
For a long time now paradox and I have wanted to create a new, never before seen, unique server with it's own customized plugins. Eventually, we were planning on getting our own box (which usually costs around $300) to allow us to be able to pull something like this off.
After searching for a new host, paradox came across a hosting service that blew us away. This server host comes with its own box, at an affordable cost.
We have decided to use this hosting service. We will be able to use it in about 2 weeks.
So after all of this, paradox and I sat down and came up with a unique server idea. It is extremely complex, and will take over factions, mcmmo, iconomy and more.
We are estimating about a month of solid work for this idea to actually be put into a server that can actually be released to public, and many weeks more of updating to fine tune and improve it.
Does this mean in the month or so we are offline with our main server you will be left out?
We will be updating our progress on a normal basis, so you will always have a good idea where we are at during the process. Some people will even be able to help with the new server if they want to. I will be creating a brand new thread with all of the information on what we are trying to accomplish, where we are at in the process, and how to help if you would like to.
We will have a separate server we will be building the new spawn town on. I will be creating a whitelist application on the new thread, and if you are accepted, you will become an official builder, and will be able to help with on specific section(s) of the town.
I will be the builder in charge of the town, and paradox will be in charge of creating the custom plugins we will need to run the server.
We sincerely apologize to each and every person who has played on the server. We could have never imagined a situation like this arising. We hope you will stick with us during the creation of a new server.
Both paradox and I are very excited for this new server, and we hope you will be as well.
Of course, nothing will be carried over onto this new server except for possibly the donater titles.
So say goodbye to MaturePvP, and say hello to the new server!
Thank you all for the wonderful experience you brought to maturecraft, we hope you will stick with us through these hard times!
As soon as I am done the new thread that will illustrate what we are planning on doing, I will post the link here.

MatureCraft General Plugins-
This is the how our server allows you to choose which world you wish to play in. Right now there are many worlds we have open, each with a unique purpose. The PvP side of things has a few, ranging from the beginner zone which only has iron are and lower in it, to allow people a chance to build up some inventory before venturing to the real battle. Where the PvE world has the dungeons that let you generate some money and collect some loot for building your bases.
The backbone of the server economy. It ties in with all other plugins to provide in game currency. /balance will show you have much you have.
This combined with SimpleRegionMarket allows players to sell/buy items at their own custom prices. There are 2 malls on the server, one in the PvP world and another in the PvE world. Since the worlds don't share inventory, this gives players the potential of having 2 personal shops to make some in game money by selling items, and use it to purchase items they need for their bases or homes. No commands needed, just put a chest underneath one of your buy/sell signs, and load it up with inventory.
Works in conjuction with ChestShop to allow players to rent zones in the malls, and then set up shops there. The server is set to rent each shop for 1 month, allowing for a little overlap. So as long as you are an active player, you don't have to worry about losing your location.
You really don't want to end up in here Players that break the rules may be jailed so an admin/mod can speak to them. No commands work in Jail so you can't just /home or /f home. Most times, if you are jailed, you should relax, and speak to the admin, and you might not find yourself further punished. If you were to over react and begin spamming or being rude, you can almost guarantee that you'll either stay in jail, be muted, or worst yet, be banned from the server.
This is what broadcasts when ore is mined on the server. It also shows how many they found, and the current light level. You can't mine in complete darkness, so this helps prevent full light hackers. Also, some random minor rewards are given to every player on the server when certain ore is mined.
Another great RPG style plugin, this one allows players to join classes such as Werewolf, Vampire, Ghoul, and Demon. Each class has a great advantage, and a great disadvantage. Vampires for example, regenerate health by feeding on monsters, but get damaged by the sun unless they are wearing a golden helmet. Demons take no fire/lava damage, and actually regenerate in lava. Ghouls take damage in water, but have truces with many of the monsters in the world and can walk freely in the nether. There is a lot of information on this plugin, and you really need to read their wiki page. To become a class, or to leave a class, certain actions must be preformed, there are no commands that do it for you. For example, Demons must burn to death to be reborn as a demon. The link for their wiki page is Here.

PvP Only Plugins-
Factions is one of the greatest PvP plugins available. You can create your own faction, claim some land, build a base, and defend it against the other warring factions on the server. There is extensive in game help for this plugin, so I'll only cover the basics here. /f help can teach you a lot about how the plugin works and to learn the commands. /f create <faction name> will create a faction under your control. Then, you can /f invite <player name> to invite people to join you. /f list shows which factions are available. /f disband will close down your faction. /f join <faction name> will join the faction if you have been invited. Don't forget to claim your land, which helps protect it from attack. To do this, type /f claim while standing in the area you wish to own. It'll provide you with a chunk worth of land, but at the cost of power. Each faction starts with 10 power, and gets 10 power for every additional member. So if you want to have a large base that is hard to attack, you'll need to let people into your faction.
Creates the minecraft environment more rewarding! Increase your stats in basic areas such as mining and farming, and unlock cool new rewards for high stats. For example, at a high enough mining level, you can receive double the coal, cobblestone, gold, iron, diamond, and more when you mine! To see your stats in mcmmo, do /stats. To see the top stats overall, do /mctop. To learn more click here!
Prevents players from logging out while in combat to avoid death/losing items. What it does is spawn a copy of the player that combat logged with the same items, armour, health, and hunger that the player had when leaving. If the spawned mob is killed, it drops all the items. Also, when the player logs back in, they are killed instantly if the spawned mob was killed. This is intended to make PvP more secure and fun, and prevent people from starting a fight they can't finish and leaving when they realize they're not going to make it. No commands needed.
PvE Only Plugins-
This is our answer to "How are we going to protect our PvE creations?" MyChunk lets you put a sign down, and on the first line put "Claim" without quotes. It costs $500 in game currency per chunk for the first 8, and $750 for each additional. You can sell/trade and allow players into the chunks that you control, so you can form groups of builders to work on a large project if so desired.
This plugin is what powers the PvE dungeons. It is a great and lightweight way to randomly create dungeon maps. The maps themselves almost remind me of the old dungeon crawler games like Might and Magic. There are chests everyone with loot, some can be quite profitable, while others are used to survive the next wave of the dungeon. At the end of each level, there will be a trapdoor to the next, or if you are at the end, a large chest and a reset button. The dungeons are set to reset automatically every 6 hours, but if you complete it before then and wish to venture again, you can use the button to reset it. Most commands have been blocked off to prevent player abuse, so all you really need is your wits, a LOT of torches, and don't forget armour and food or you might not make it through.

A wise man called Paradox once said:
"At the end of the day, our goals for this server are to be on a 400 player cap, 16gig of ram, dedicated dual Xeon box, which costs upwards of $150 per month. This high expense is only possible if we have dedicated players that make the server fun to be on, and optional donations. You don't have to donate if you don't want to, or can't at the moment, feel free to continue to enjoy the server regardless! If you are able to donate, and are so inclined, the staff at MaturePvP thank you for your support of our project, to bring a fun and mature PvP server to the minecraft world, which is a unique experience. As a thank you, several donation levels have been listed below that reward donators. This is not intended to encourage donations of a certain amount, but only as an increased thank you to those players that are the backbone of our server, and we are very thankful for their contributions."
In other words, donations are optional, and donating is only for those that want to. Players of MaturePvp should feel no obligation to donate, it is simply there for those who want to support the finacial development of MaturePvP, but being an active, mature player on the server is just as important.
If you feel so inclined to donate, you can do so by hitting the paypal button below.
To show our gratitude for donators, we have created a couple perks for donators to enjoy:
1. Skip all of the ranks, and receive a rank of King! King gets you all of the previous rank perks as well as the ability to teleport to people, and teleport people to you. You also get /kit King, which gives you a diamond block and a golden apple, and it regenerates ever month!
2. Have exclusive access to a donator shop found in the spawn of PvP and PvE. This shop has items that are not possible to get in game such as ice and monster spawners. Remember that these items may not be resold elsewhere.
Good news! I believe that the weird glitch that caused a lot of downtime has been fixed! Hopefully the server should run well from now on. Also, we are looking into allowing me to have server controls, meaning that I will be able to reboot the server it is down.
Kmilley now has server control, so even if the glitch persists, the downtime will be much less. Also, I'm 99.999% sure I fixed the glitch once and for all, I believe it was McMMO .. after a day or 2 of testing, I will be revamping the plugins to make way for another RPG like one I was reading about that sounded really cool. Thanks for all your nice words of support, I'm happy to offer a fun place to pvp, raid, and have a good time crafting or mining.
