    Had a little bit of a delay due to Bukkit duping bug, then I had a power outage, then I had an internet outage after that.

    We didn't get that last plugin done, that makes everthing complete, so it will be pushed back till saturday, sorry, all....

    BUT a bit of a bonus, for making you wait a day, I have hidden 13 signs in the ruins giving free things like:

    1 Glowstone
    1 Netherbrick
    1 Chiseled stone (the circly one)
    1 iron sword
    1 sponge
    1 iron armor chest
    1 Iron pants
    1 lapis block
    1 temple block (the one with the creeper face)

    and more...

    Quote from Nazgulyan

    Hey guys, I really hope you will be using a new map with the large biomes setup. Just adds so much more immersion when you don't have a land that looks like it's stitched together.


    Actually, I'm about to update the thread, we took the old city, carpet bombed it in TNT, made it look nice and ruined, then covered it in vegitation, THEN dropped the whole thing on a 1.3 map...

    and yes, it is extra large biomes, and its 256 height it better be, the airship you spawn on goes to 249 =P

    Thank you to everyone who made this server great, we're taking a little break, and scaling down operations a bit, as this server's operation is slowing down progress of our brand new game(as in not minecraft or minecraft related) we're creating.

    Anyone registered on our forum will get an e-mail about the new server coming up in a few weeks.

    Anyone not registered on our forum, but has replied to this thread, will get a PM when its ready.

    Thank you again,

    - DarkTide Management.

    Welcome to DarkTide
    Hardcore PVP * Towns * Economy * Freedom

    Server Video (old)

    Quick grab paragraph -

    We focus on three things on DarkTide

    The most HardCore PVP experience possible in Minecraft, bar none.

    Rules & Clarifications.

    We Have 3 Simple Rules:

    #1 Do Not cheat.

    #2 Do not Spam

    #3 Do not interfere with Server Operation

    In case you need the clarified, we will do so now.

    Do Not Cheat

    We devote considerable resources to stopping, catching, and banning cheating, including Xray, flying, speeding, and all other forms of client side hacks. Don't do it.

    Do not Spam

    Spam is defined as:

    Don't do it.

    Do not interfere with Server Operations

    This one could be a little more obscure and deserve an explaination, don't give official Staff a hard time while they're doing their job (such as moderating chat, creating event buildings inside DTC, or on the forums. Also included in this, is using DarkTide Resources to try and impede server growth, such as advertising other servers.

    Thats it.

    Otherwise if you can do it, its legal. Yes, thats right, if you CAN do something , it is legal. We didn't think it was important enough to write a plugin to stop you, then do it. With the exception of our 3 rules.

    Kill someone, steal their stuff, grief their house or lawn, we mean it, if you can do it, its completely legal and the staff won't interfere.

    Politics, Trade, Wars, Building, DarkTide Has something for everyone, if your brave enough. Thats right if you don't try out DarkTide you're a wuss.

    The Best Dedicated Coding team

    Darktide has the most numerous and best coded plugins of any server, they're all DarkTide Exclusive, because we horde our work, cause lets face it we play on DarkTide.

    DarkCombat Suite

    YardSale (or only non-dark plugin!)

    DarkClans

    DarkSiege *-comming soon-*

    Perks, Donations.

    Guides.

    Starting out on DarkTide

    Prosperity


    History of DarkTide.

    DarkTide Started in March 2008 When players who formed an Roleplaying nation of Evil,







    -==============================================

    Don't mind this post, I'm working on updating the thread.

    Players please note that DarkTide is still one 1.8 we're working hard on fixing that.



    The DarkTide staff proudly present,

    DarkTide


    DarkTide is a server like no other. Custom plugins, a fully functioning economy, settlements, perks, the list goes on. DarkTide is the definition of custom content. Not only do we allow stealing, PvP, lying, spying, glitching, and outright dirty underhanded tactics, we ENCOURAGE it. You do not have to ask permission to do anything, you do it. All we ask is that you follow our short list of rules.


    The DarkTide Experience...

    (this video is from pre 1.7 map wipe, but the experience is the same)

    Our first concern, is to provide a more balanced, and better PVP experience, if you don't like PVP you won't like DarkTide, outside of the main city, anyone can kill you anywhere, cause they don't like your specific flavor of ice cream.

    But that's the beauty of DarkTide you can do whatever you want. We don't stop you.


    :DSWORD: - Damages of weapons have been tweaked on Darktide to provide more balanced, and longer lasting combat.
    :Gboots: - One of the most lag free servers that is up 24/7
    :Iron: - Plug-ins, both Common and Customized for better play
    :tnt: - No whitelist (we have a grey list, where you can log in and check it out first)
    :Skeleton: - PvP enabled and encouraged
    :chestfront: - A complete player driven economy based on supply/demand
    :mossystone: - Dungeons, PvP tournaments, and other fun planned events by staff
    :DPA: - Form Settlements (towns, cities, etc.) and Clans
    :Violet: - Buy perks to assist in accomplishing your goals, including own your own protected land.
    :SSSS: - No Hacking or Cheating. Either through logs or player provided proof to consider accusation.
    :Diamond: - Minimal interferences, but measured and resolute discipline by professional staff
    :VV: - Freedom to do as you wish to succeed (minus hacking and plugin perimeters)
    :--+: - In all aspects, self-sufficiency
    :Zombie: - Chat modding leans toward freedom of expression, except when it goes against functionality.
    :Red: - Sleep in a bed to set your home/spawn, even during the day.
    :Frame: - New map on 10/14 so the world isn't that cluttered.

    Server Specs


    Professionally Hosted, 24/7 Dedicated server, Supported, and Modded

    Intel Core i7 SIX CORE 990X 12MB 130W Overclocked to 4.0GHz
    Kingston HyperX 24GB DDR3-1600 (6x4GB)
    Intel X25-E 32GB SSD
    Ubuntu 10.10

    This server is optimized for Minecraft Hosting

    Rules:

    Do not whine.
    Do not spam.
    Do not cheat/hack.
    Do not disrespect staff.
    Otherwise, if you can do it it's LEGAL!

    Plugins


    Common
    Fire Spread - Off
    Lava - Lava unable to flow from air. Buckets can only be used in region owned areas or below y-40.
    TNT - Craftable but unplaceable, and disabled.
    WorldGuard - Regions with options.
    HeroChat - Chat plugin with channels and extra features.
    iConomy - Basic Plugin to allow in-game coins.


    DarkTide Exclusives
    DarkCombat - Drop Items if you log / disconnect while in combat.
    YardSale - Robust, modified, yet user friendly Sign Shop Plugin.
    ScrapYard - Have a chance to recycle metal goods for ingots/diamonds
    Warps - Find teleports in the wild and use them to your advantage.


    Perks
    LWC - Lock chests/doors/signs/levers
    CraftBook - Bridges / Gates / Elevators
    Land owner - Set up a 35x35x88 region of protected land.
    HeroBounty - Improved upon from original, set bounties on targets, collect bounties set on others, or use to get the location of others.

    PvP
    PvP rules are short and straightforward:

    Disabled: Inside the gates of DarkTide Citadel (Spawn settlement) and server purposed areas.
    Enabled: Everywhere else.

    If you can kill someone without using mods, its a legit kill.
    If you have to use a mod to kill someone, it's not legit.


    Economy
    Coins are the currency of our world. You can get coins by several different means, such as:
    - Trading and selling with others. (You may trade and sell with other players in the trade channel or with yardsale signs.)
    - Selling to the DarkTide Shops
    - Raiding (Raiding chests, players, and trades.)
    - Unofficial coin transaction activities (begging, loaning, work compensation, etc.)
    - Voting for DarkTide on Minestatus http://minestatus.net/1229-darktide/vote (once per day for 100c)

    The economy system will be based solely on the player bases' selling and buying activities. The official market shops will auto set prices and costs from player's shopping activities from within that town. Player yardsales outside town will act independently. Much like the real world. Yardsales (independent player markets) are a perk. While you will be able to buy and sell Portals from independent player markets, you will not be able to buy Portals from spawn city.

    Planned events, Portals, and Multiverses
    We at DarkTide don't like standing around and fighting all day, we bring assorted events to liven up our citizens.

    - Dungeons to be explored
    - PvP Tournaments
    - Portal Tiles can be earned and skills can be learned.
    - There will be Portals in the wild to be discovered that lead to other world destinations, special events, and to other Multiverses

    Clans & Settlements

    Clans are organizations of players that work together in-game for protection, coordinating building projects, and conquering through strength. In DarkTide if you band together with enough people, you may form settlements. Listed below is the criteria needed to form and maintain said settlements.

    Settlements can be built to provide a place for a group of people to commune, live, build, and thrive. All dimensions mention are including a y coordinate above 40. Settlements are started with payment of coin. The larger the settlement, the exponentially the higher coin needed. Upkeep payment in coin will also be necessary to maintain your status as a settlement. Staff will judge your settlements status to the number of active people that are citizens.

    To make a settlement you must:
    - Have x players (excluding yourself) or more that swear allegiance to you. X being the required number of followers needed to form settlement. (10 for a village, 20 for a town, and 30 for a city.)
    - A name for your clan.
    - A location that is a minimum 150 blocks away from the center point of any adjacent regions.

    What a settlement has additional access too:
    - Exclusive chat and chat moderator abilities for your chat.
    - Towns and cities get bankers which have special rates from DarkTide Citadel shops.

    Village 75x75 - 10 Followers

    Features
    - 75x75 Block protected area (no breaking or placing blocks without worldguard permissions)
    - A bed to set your home to.
    - A clan subforum on the official website forums.


    Town 125x125 - 20 Followers (coming soon)

    Features
    - 125x125 Block protected area (no create or destroy without permission)
    - A bed to set your home to.
    - Clan Leader and one banker designated by the leader may sell assets at a much higher price than others
    - A clan subforum on the official website forums.


    Character building

    Perks
    Perks are additional in-game abilities.

    Craftbook
    Build Gates
    Build Bridges
    Build Elevators

    Land Owner
    Land Owner - Grants you a 35x35 protected piece of land where you can do anything including adding members/owners to its region.

    LWC
    Locksmith (Grants use of LWC and allows 1 protection with the ability to extra locks)

    YardSale
    YardSale (Grants the player 1 initial YardSale sign)
    5 YardSale signs (Requires YardSale but grants the player 5 more YardSale signs.)

    Perks are bought with quantities of Portal Tile (Portal Tiles are the purple swirl entities that are shown inside operating nether portals). There will be no official connection between Portal Tiles and coin. People will be able to sell or buy them from independent markets, but not from DarkTide Citadel. Ways to earn or buy Portal Tiles are:
    - Donating to the Server through PayPal or mailed in donations
    - Participating and Succeeding in special events
    - Buying sold Portal Tiles from independent markets

    Admin & Staff Rules

    - No Hacking (xraying, speed/fly hacking, etc.)
    - No abuse of chat causing issues with functionality.
    - Staff cannot use abilities when not on duty.
    - Staff cannot abuse power that cause problems with functionality on or off duty.
    - Rules setup for practical, not subjective, modding.
    - Rules apply to players as well as staff.
    - Staff are held to higher standard.
    - Unless doing ingame server maintenance, staff is not to use any admin powers.
    - All staff will reside in a staff town and not within other settlements.
    - To request staff help, a petition chat system has been setup to administer to your needs in game.
    - Accusations of rule breaking are only considered with log and visual proof placed in a petition or in the hack thread.

    Hardcore

    - No one is coming to teleport you.
    - No one is going to spawn anything for you.
    - No one is going to say I'm sorry.
    - If you can do it without hacking, and working within the plugins, it's legal*.
    *= except in few extreme cases at admin's discretion
