Hello everyone. This post is something I would like community feedback on, so please read it and respond so that your voice can be heard!
Within the last few weeks, a lot has happened. School is slowing down for me, giving me more time to focus on developing for MegaCraft. Similarly, I have had a lot of new projects ideas for MegaCraft as well as other projects that are a continual process. However, I constantly find myself jumping from project to project, never really getting anything close to ready for production. I'm starting to feel like this guy...
Thus, the reason for this forum post. I would like to know what you guys think with what project I should prioritize my time with getting done. These are the following ideas/projects I am either working on or have done some form of planning for and a brief (lol not really brief) description of each:
The fully automated MissileWars server network is now live! Check it out at mw.mc-mega.com!
Hey guys, I got something pretty awesome to share with you...
For the last week, I've been working on a special server for Sethbling and Cubehamster's new minigame: MissleWars. This server will host multiple automated MissileWars nodes and can be played by anyone and everyone!
What is MIssileWars? Check out Sethbling's awesome overview of what the game is:
Meh you say? Get this: MegaCraft is the only server in all of Minecraftia that will offer this type of game on an automated mufti-server network! That's right! You can't get this anywhere else folks!
The launch date has been pushed back to tomorrow (Friday 10/24) and will likely launch later at night (around 9-10pm EST). Once it launches, I will post the IP on this post
Grief on MegaCreative is hard to deal with, especially with many people have the power of WorldEdit. While there are measures in place to help counter grief (adding/trusting as well as the ability to only add/trust people YOU CHOOSE and even the plot saving/restoring system), griefing is inevitable. In the continued effort to help curb griefing, I have created yet another awesome MegaCreative feature: daily personal plot backups.
As of now, this feature is limited to Donators (Donator, VIP, Elite). This is due to the amount of time and resources it takes to save plots. During my initial tests, there are about 920 plots owned by donators while there are over 30 thousand owned by other players. It would likely take an entire day if not more to copy all those plots and save them into schematics, not even accounting for the necessary disk space.
This feature will automatically link into the exisitng schematic...
After the long wait, I am happy to announce the new MegaCreative Ranking System is here!
These new ranking systems are based on building and a new plot reviewal system.
New Ranks User: This rank is assigned to all new players) Novice: Novice is the only rank that is not directly achieved by building. Novice can be earned automatically be completing the following tasks:
Registering on the MegaCraft Forums
Posting Twice on the MegaCraft Forums
Accumulating a total of 5 playtime hours on the MegaCraft Network.
Builder: Builder is awarded to people who have played a while and shown some building talent. This is the first rank achieved by submitting your builds through the plot submission system. Experienced:...
MegaCreative offers an easy and fun way to build massive Minecraft structures, but what if you want to transfer them over to your own worlds? Now you can! A new custom MegaCreative plugin allows you to save a snapshot of your plot as a .schematic file, which you can then paste into any of your own worlds!
/ms save - Saves a copy of your plot
/ms get <Schematic ID> - Uploads a schematic to a place where you can download it
/ms restore <Schematic ID> - Restores your plot to an older snapshot
/ms list - Lists your currently saved schematics for the plot you are in
Another great use of this feature is to protect against grief! By saving your plot periodically, you can restore to it at a later date if you plot becomes damaged by griefers. Keep in mind though that griefing...
Congratulations, comrades! The war is over and we have succeeded over the forces who so desperately tried to stop us. We have overcome a great fear and accomplished such an epic victory! All of our boys made it home safe and we can pass around the celebratory soda (because alcohol is not quite in the budget) and the bread of our successes. Your cooperation and compliance in this fight has achieved you back your freedom to be Megacrafters and do everything that such a title entails. Welcome back to the community, comrades, all systems are back online.
The war is not going well, comrades, for MegaCraft Everything is currently down. We have had a large communication failure with the Box that runs everything from it. I want you to know that this is a rather troublesome matter, but we hope it will be resolved quickly. To say the least, the Hard Drive from the Box had a terrible failure, and thus it had taken a severe blow. However, we do hope that all data will be restored. The odds are good that this calamity will be reverted, but for now, the war front is perilous and we have agents that are working tirelessly to change this. Do your part in this war and do not freak out, we manage best as long as we're not being flooded with complaints and needless fears. Equatable to the CIA, we are also undergoing investigations to understand the meaning of this malfunction, but the jammers that have crushed our server are being reprimanded. Simply pray that this will be over soon and that your boys on the front lines will return home safe from...
