    can we focus on advertising so the server doesnt drop from 50 players to none in a week again


    You see, I believe in building a server that lasts, and is refreshed with new content to make it fun for players both old and new - advertising may bring new people in, but they would have little incentive to stay, otherwise.

    Given that we had a stressed bandwidth trying to operate last time, efforts are now focused towards a larger, more comfortable team, and the addition of infrastructural, modular content. If our plugins are glitched, our economy shackled to conventional norms, and player advancement is nil, well, you get the gist of our efforts. One quick step at a time.

    Hello, folks. To those of you who have messaged me, I have just responded now. My faithful computer of many years died, but I have restored my data on a newer, better one. The details are in your inboxes.


    To the rest of you reading, we are in the process of gauging our team for this upcoming build; if you are at all interested, PM me for the specifics.


    It makes me almost sentimental, seeing how long the community has held. I remember when pistons first came out on Spartacus 1.0, for crying out loud - even with the job and all the other organization stuff, the younger guy inside me that played MC day and night yells "You guys are awesome". Keep at it, await us patiently.

    Also just a question


    Do we have an estimated date when the sever will be up?


    To answer your question, and the questions of those watching with some relatively enumerated gusto.

    Doc and I have some of the underlying concept and structure for the server. Building is no problem - the problem arised, and will arise from lack of plugins which can fully constitute the Spartacus experience.

    I dont want to force people to downgrade to an old version just to play our server; the hard shell of a prison built by a few dedicated people can take two weeks, tops (I speak from experience) - the plugins are what really tie everything together. Some plugins havent even updated for the Combat update yet. It would take a pretty good plugin manager to bring our server up to scratch.

    Honestly, it is also a matter of life things happening. Over this summer, I was actually offered an internship at a large tech firm here in the States, and I graciously accepted. Gaming still has a place in my heart, yes, but its very difficult to say if it would be possible for Doc and I to do this alone. Time is a very fickle thing. Spartacus was the first server I've played, and I both admire and appreciate the tenacity of the old playerbase.

    I know that if summer is the time, it does not coincide well with my current time. By association, if anyone wishes to assist/help tackle this project (whether through mapmaking or plugins), I would welcome their wholehearted effort. Split between two old players, its difficult to find the time to collaborate on this. I firmly believe that this project has potential, and that no single person can hold on forever. Its the community and the admin team that makes the server great - not the other way around.

    If you feel up to help this project in any way, message me.

    1.9 is coming.


    This includes a massive amount of new materials for mapmakers to work with. We can now even customize loot tables without any need for external plugins. If truly inclined, it looks like I can even make a manual Mob Arena with command blocks and the like. Pre-existing gameplay plugins like those might be antiquated with this update - be that the case, I am very excited for the future!

    If you guys need any help with anything, just let me know. I'd love to help get the server up asap. <3



    While not all, a majority of our issues stem from several plugins that need to be implemented correctly. If you are excellent with plugins, or know an individual who has exemplary plugin skills, I would be more than happy to welcome the help. Some examples of problematic areas were the mob arena, crate voting, and tidbits of the Rankup plugin.


    That, and we are looking to repurpose and rebalance some of the map - make things a bit more streamlined and porous. Finish up the Free area, see what I can do to balance the economy using some of my own software, add post-Free experience, etcaetera. I've been both a player and an administrator on prison servers, and I can quite understand the feeling; the want and need.


    We got a -lot- done this previous summer. The foundation and beams are set in place with some readjusting needed - now all we need to do is fill with concrete. I hope that you'll be around during that phase.

    I appreciate the sentiment, 17. <3

    What I'm understanding is the server won't be released until the Summer, correct?


    Then what is the point of this thread.


    You're right - our timeframe puts us around the midst of summer. Even so, discussion and idea-sharing is encouraged. That is how improvements are made: comments, and feedback.

    Quote from Brettski_15»

    can we get some screenshots or sneak peaks of the server


    but it is probably just like the old server right?



    At this point in time, we have no "sneak peaks" underway; this is our time to take a step back (for many reasons, school and such being one of these), and evaluate what went well, and what could be improved.

    After this reflection, we admins will try to rally in late spring/early summer to implement what we can. I know that among us, the pace of work is slowed, but I much emphasize quality over quantity.


    The old server infrastructure has functioned excellently - I helped build it in a "slotted" fashion, meaning that components can be easily added and removed at ease. At this point, it is merely a matter of implementation, balanced and capable diverse staff, and time. With the new updates coming to MC, I see no issues in eventually transitioning the map over. 1.9 helps mapmakers in many ways!


    We have many life events going on for all of us, you and I. Time is the factor. We hope to work on it by then, and to release a polished product. It took us quite a bit of time last summer to work on this project from the ground up, but we now have the baseline down to a letter. The best possible thing that could happen for us is if we had a good plugin manager on-board by that time. We even had Clash help us during this release! Building is no problem - its the soft side, the behind-the-scenes and all.

    Oh my god... I am from the very original Spartacus... I am pman9. Anyone remember me? Also, please get this server back up asap, I would love to play on it again.



    Hey there, pman! I remember you quite fondly. Always a pleasure to see you - original Spartacus best Spartacus. Dedicated faction never dies.

    See the above, and any previous posts of mine. We hope to work on it early this upcoming summer break, and release it when ready!


    Aww yiss, look at that old-new Spartacus. That was when Ovid and Co. were still around.

    OPEN UP ALREADY AGAIN YA'LL PROBABLY SPENDING YOUR 400+ DOLLAR PROFITS ON PIZZA



    I got a chuckle out of that - we'll open up again once we know we can. :)

    Believe it or not, we allocated server money to be used -only- on the server.
    Responsible server owners, what?!

    NO ONE BOTHERED TO TELL ME THIS WAS GOING ON?! ARE YOU SERIOUS?! :( ILL BE ON THE WEEKEND SOON MY FRIENDS, IVE MISSED YOU VERY MUCH!


    During the summer, we built this in our timeframe; as school came and people became busy, it closed up to minimize costs.

    We hopefully anticipate opening again during spring-summer - we have infrastructure, and we have backups.
    It is my personal hope that we are able to reboot this project then. Everything is always a work in progress - nothing is ever perfect.

    With that, I want to give my gratitude to all who helped us during that time - we know a scope of issues that plagued us post-release, and we hope to rectify those issues given that we open this project again in the future. We will be honoring previous donors and mapwide contributions if and when we do.

    Alas, university is quite something. When I was on the original Spartacus 1.0, it was so much different from what we have all accomplished here. It was my original home server in Minecraft. Time does fly.

    I hope to see you all in the future.

    Best regards to you all, as always.

    Ok, well thats a $30 waste of my money and life.



    The previous server owner had withdrawn every aspect of the server and disappeared, cancelling everything; I too, was on that server with my own contribution. I know how you feel, but I cannot honor that transaction here.

    Ok, so, I donated a while ago (The spartacus before this one) for lanista, then the server shut down. Is there any chance I could get my lanista back? I dont know if you have a way of serching donors from before this spartacus, but my IGN is Zman112002. Thanks


    As much as we would love to accommodate everyone, the previous server was under a different owner; we saw none of it for our own upkeep and development. We are steadily composing the tenets of this new server as we go.

    Hi, I bought a chest, upgraded it to a large chest and bought another chest. After that I renamed both chests both. Both chests are stil small chests and glory has been taken. Help please.


    Relogging normally solves the issue of chests and renaming. Have you tried that?

    posted a message on * The Lonely Vale * !!! GRAND OPENING !!! A Player-Oriented Heavy Fantasy RP Server. Create Your Story Today!

    Hello!


    I am reposting my cobwebbed application for visibility.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    IGN: Trent_Easton
    **********
    Have you ever played on a Heavy RP server before?:
    ************
    None before, but RP and writing (being theatrical and such) is not out of my nature.

    Character Name: Maximillion
    **************
    Race: (We will discuss race once you are passed the whitelist)
    ************

    Respond to this IC:
    .....the large drunkard pulls out his wine flask from his stained leather belt, putting his other hand on the hilt of his rusty iron longsword. Taking another giant swig, he yells at you again:
    "Ya scared, little swamp-rat?! *hic* I'm talkin to YOU! I'll cleave ya right in two if I don't get that coinpurse in my hands!!"

    His motions are careless, and his reflexes are muddled. No words of mine escape, save for a simple "Hm." and a nod. Taking advantage of this, I unsheathe a dagger quickly in one single motion, speaking in a calm, collected manner.

    "That sword of yours - tell me. I can hear the iron bending and chipping as you grasp it. While this, on the other hand..." A single finger runs over the surface of the dagger. "...has claimed more lives and has witnessed more blood than your poorly-forged knife. I advise against attacking me blindly, and if anything, you should be the one asking me for forgiveness. However... "

    "The virtues of mercy are not without merit", I repeat to myself in a mental mantra.

    I grasp a piece of long bread on the counter. Food is the universal gift, after all. Using the dagger, I slice it in half and offer it to the drunkard, whose eyes gaze upon it with intrigue.

    "I would rather that you eat, my friend. Let us forget war and battle for the time - let us drink to the future success of our endeavors."

    I hold up my tankard to his in a toast. If he chooses to reciprocate in kind, my objective is complete. If not...I prepare for that situation by gripping the dagger nonchalantly.

    Anything going on or am i waiting for nothing


    We're figuring out the logistics of implementation post planning - the server constantly remains open on the prison-side. A portion of our team have a busy schedule during summer. That, and the majority is R&D along with actually getting everything moving smoothly. This is an expansion to what already exists - as I was gone, I personally do not have an accurate ETA.


    The server will be open for a long time. That is for certain. It will continually develop over time, as our workable slate is massive.
