ok, so it is not constant - i will look at correcting later

oh and in the game iron ore says it got a radius of 11 and lapiz says it got a radius of 32. and the diamond beacons cover a area of 129x129 (and say to have a radius of 64)
September 08, 2017, 12:58:10 pm
if you coutn the center to the radius, all others are false. for mexample iron ore says r = 11. but it covers 23x23 blocks. if it where 11 with center included it would only cover 21x21 blocks
September 07, 2017, 05:57:20 pm
center block + 32== 33
September 07, 2017, 05:20:09 pm
at school it says the lapiz beacon got a radius of 33 blocks. actually it got a radius of 32 blocks *

xxMCS Reset

Seems that is time to make proper announcement regarding the reset.

As all of you already know, we are planning a big reset in following days.
This includes world reset, rank reset and redesign, new plugins and much more...

About ranks..
I know some of you will not be happy about some changes, specially regarding ranks and permissions, but it is time to move from old system to new one.
There is no point in keeping old ranks when permissions are changed.
Since new ranks are not ready yet, I will introduce them when I finish setting them up.

Why doing this now?
I want to focus more on following Minecraft development (not to wait for too long for updates) and having a rank system that is less competitive and more trust based.
On survival server is unfair that skilled builders have more perks over those who are probably more skilled in combat or other aspects of survival gameplay.
2nd problem are rank chasers, which aim to beat others or reach certain rank and perks at any cost, and often are stressed if their build is not appreciated enough.

That is why I will move competitive part of game  from ranks towards contests and custom events where players can earn fame and show their skills (build, combat, survival).
Of course all of this won't be possible without your help.

Regarding rules, we are not going back to supersurvival mode. There will be warps, and some other features that will make gameplay slightly easier for everyone. That way people can also play casual (to a certain level).

About plugins..
Aim is to have list of plugins that make gameplay safe, builds protected, actions logged. Gameplay mechanics won't be changed too much, detail here and there, like fire spread turned off, no tnt block damage etc.
Beacons will be replaced with other plugin. We will see how will it go, it might be temporary or permanent.

World reset..
Nothing changed regarding world here. New world, new adventure.
Starting radius will be 7000 (maybe 10000) blocks. Depends on map (remember Atrevenia, and it's oceans :)).
For now is set to 10000.


That is all for now.
I hope new setup will be ready today or at least tomorrow (take into consideration that it is Christmas and my free time is limited).
I'll let you know as soon as it is ready.

Starting setup will be basic, so you can start playing, spawn, school, tf will be done later.
Permissions same for all at the start (like home and warp). Map border. Logging player actions (so we are safe from griefers). Basic environmental protection (fire spread, tnt block damage). Option is to keep current permissions for few more days if it takes too much time to adjust them (will see this evening).

Update:
For now we stay with Beacons. They are still working, are stable and visible on dynmap (refresh cache).

Hi everyone,

Due to a mistake in the server move, the forum has now been rolled back to a backup made on the 7th September.. The forums after the move were mistakenly still configured to connect to the old database server IP (which was fine until our old server finally shut down last night). Kinda a pain, oh well - hopefully not too much lost.

As far as I'm aware, everything else is ok and hasn't been affected by this. If there are any new problems, then please let me know.

Thanks,
Joe / ylt
xxHosting change + some other stuff

Hello everyone!
At the moment we are transferring all minecraft stuff to a new host. Whole process should be done really fast, and most of you hopefully won't notice a change. Gameserver switch will be done now, web related stuff probably tomorrow.

It is possible that the website or game server is unreachable at some point. In that case wait a bit, then try again later.
We will also monitor plugins and database, so if you notice something not working properly (besides current issues), let us know.

Regarding Cheech's thread, I believe everything is clear. I'll continue to host. He is still part of staff.

Regarding updates and new map. After the switch I'm starting to work on test of new version and Beacon adjustments. Depending on results, will decide if current map will be updated, or the update will come with new map. For reset, this can be first announcement. So "6 months until reset" period officially just started.

Hello McSteamers.

I will try and keep this short.

Life has gotten pretty busy on my end. I am working 2 jobs to pay my bills and other things that need to be payed for.  My time on the server is going to be pretty much nil. If I do make it online to build, explore, or staff duties, it would be just for a few minutes. As of this time, the Dedi bills are payed for until the end of this month (July). I should be able to cover one more month (August). At the end of August I will not be able to keep up with the Dedi payment. I will leave it up to Pipscraft and Ylt if they want me to stay as host of the server until the end of August. If not, I will be leaving as host when one of them changes my rank. I would love to stay as host of this server because it is one of the best around. Lots of great people that play here. Working 2 jobs and getting the bills payed, cars fixed, and other issues that I will not discus, is starting to overwhelm me so I will have to step down as host at some point. I know I have to focus on life first. What is currently going on is not easy while working 2 jobs

Kudos to all the current and former staff members for helping to keep the server from griefers, thieves, and the trouble makers so everyone can have a great place to play and have fun.

Kudos to all the members, without you, the user, this server would not be what it is today.

Wiley,
AKA Cheech5150

OK, it seems like there is rumors about a world reset. At this time, there is none. No clue who started that rumor and it needs to stop.

This world is scheduled to go for another year.

As you all probably know changing usernames is now supported.
In order to avoid losing inventory items, enderchest items, beacons and rank please notify staff before the change. Provide us with new username.

For those who are banned: MCBans support uuids so changing name wont help in order to avoid ban.

Also keep in mind that our unwritten rule is still valid. No impersonating other players or staff.

      Hello again McSteamers.  As most of you know, a new map has been the talk of the server. That time has come to change the map and all its contents. Full reset is set for this coming Friday or Saturday depending on what time zone you live in. If you try and log in, no server, well, good chance the map is being changed over. If you want to take screen shots, finish up any builds, you might want to do that now. Both maps will be available for down load. They will be posted when ready.

      I know a lot of players want 1.8. Not going to happen this time around. I have done lots of testing with Spigot and the plug ins we use. 4 that I know of will not work. 3 of them I can’t test. At this time we will be staying with 1.7.10 with a 1.8 emulator. You will be able to log in using 1.7.9/10 and 1.8 client, you will not be able to use the new blocks that come with 1.8. Same kind of set up we have now.

     We are going try something new this time around. Spawn, TF1, Craft Hall, and School will be built live in game. So when you log in for the first time this coming weekend, you will not be standing on a large built spawn. The first thing will be to get a small area built so when players log in they will be standing on some kind of platform. Next, get the public farm going. Then start working on the school. Once they are up and running, main spawn will be next on the list. Craft Hall will be last.

New server rules:
     1. No griefing. This includes stealing or editing the property of others, even if it is
unbeaconed.
     2. No cheating. This includes exploits, glitches, and mods that give unfair
advantage. Ask staff if unsure.
     3. Do not use grinders, automatic item generators, item duplicators, xp farms, etc.
Spawners have to be fair fights. Ask staff if unsure.
     4. No PVP in non-PVP areas. This includes player traps or attacking players
through indirect means such as fire.
     5. If you die, your stuff is fair game for anyone. This does not apply if rule #4 is
broken, in which case contact staff.
     6. Respect all people. No personal attacks or hate speech of any kind.
     7. No offensive or excessively vulgar material. This applies for skins and builds,
not just chat.
     8. Do not disrupt chat. This includes spam, abuse of caps/chat codes, and
excessive cursing. No advertising for other servers.

     There will be a Rules area on the forms with more information on each one. Any clarification can be found on the forms. Everyone will be expected to reread them when the new map goes live.

     Villagers will be disabled. Why you ask? Simple, Players can’t control the villager population. The last one I removed had 411 villagers in a 4x4 area. Before that 900 were removed. You can pretty much guess how much lag that causes. We prefer player-player trading instead of abusing unfair villager trade rates. This will be better for everyone. Iron golem farm will not be allowed at all. With villagers removed, it will solve that issue. Staff will also be on the look out for massive animal farms. If found, the animals will be removed.

     The wiki is being updated. Check it often for updates.

     We will be removing the excavation pick. This is to keep everyone on the same playing field. The compass will be disabled for about 30 days from the start of the map. Had a lot of issues of players bouncing from tree top, hill top, tree top, etc looking for temples and raiding them. This idea will give other players a chance on getting some of the loot.

Exit stage left to pound on zombies

   As most are aware of the new ownership changes, so comes some new ideas. This main server will stay as a Survival server (SMP).  A new server will be added, Creative (CMP).  This server will be an invite only server hosted by Pipscraft.  He is the one you need to prove worthy enough to join this server.  Not going to be easy, so sucking up to him will not do you any good.  The ranking system will have some changes in the point system.

[SMP]

* Guest ---> Builder:  20 points. Should be fairly easy to get in a few days to a week.  If you have not been ranked up to builder in 7 days and have a basic house (that you built by yourself),  get with a staff member to have them look at it.

* Builder ---> Designer: 100 Points. This will be much harder. As of now, players must wait for staff to look at the build to get points related to this rank.  If a player would like more input on a design they are building, they can post the build on the forums to get an idea on how they are doing in regards to achieving this rank.  Not guaranteed to get the full 80 points. It will be a start in the right direction.

* Designer ---> Architect: 400 points. The build you are planning must be posted on the forums. Please post who is the main project lead and everyone who is helping on the project, if any helpers of said project.  If you have a story line that goes with the project in question, write it up. When the project is complete, you can request a review.

* New Rank. Master [title of build] Maybe a player likes to build Dungeons or Temples. Something that sets it apart from other project builds. This must be posted on the forums with the title of the build. Example: Master rank: Space Ship. Include all the build ideas at the time of the posting.  Still refining the build requirements of this rank, but you get the idea.

3 new ‘Child’ boards will be added to the Survival Freebuild area of the forums. Designer, Architect, Master. If you would like to build for a certain rank, that will be the place to post your designs/ideas.

Some minor changes to the server rules. They will be posted when the map is reset.

A new Server Rules area will be created with extra info about each rule. Check back often for any updates to the rules.

New warp system will be based on your build rank. Public warps will not be seen on the map. Warp signs can still be used if a players elects to use them. All players can use /warp warpname. You will also have /home to use. All players can be invited to private warps. /warp invite playername NameOfWarp

- Guest: can get invites to private warps, can use all public warps.
- Builder: 1 warp. Public/private can invite players.
- Designer: 2 warps. Public/private can invite players.
- Architect: 4 warps, Public/private can invite players.

This is subject to change depending on the usage. If the warp plug-in ‘breaks’ so you can create more warps the what your build rank is set for, you will be required to remove extra warps.

Town Requirements to get the global warp will stay the same. You can see the post here:
https://mcsteamed.net/index.php?topic=591.0

A new map will be coming soon. A total reset. This includes creative flat world. Flat world can be accessed by your build rank. Currently it is Designer and higher. That will stay the same. Two ranks will be removed. Guide and Trusted. The new map will be 5k East/West by 5k North/South from center of map. This will allow for expansion when all the plug-ins are updated to 1.8+. Will try and announce a week in advance when the map will be reset using 1.7.10 world generator so if you want to finish up a project, take screen shots of your build, or other screen shots, you will have a some time to do just that.


Donor rank will be heavily nerfed due to Mojang and the new rules they imposed on to servers like Mcsteamed. This is out of our hands, so there is nothing we can do about it. We are working on a new “Perks” so everyone benefits from player donations if we reach the goal of the server bills each month. We have a few ideas rolling around so all players can benefit from donations. Stay tuned for updates.

Some of what is in this announcement may change. So check back often.

Hello!

Long time has passed since we posted any official information regarding our server and community.
Many things has changed and it is time to provide you with the latest news about these changes.

As some of you probably heard, Dysgalt resigned from being the MCS owner. So, first of all, we would like to thank her for keeping all of this alive, and also thank others who contributed via donations. We wish Dysgalt the best of luck in the future for the path she chooses to take.
Since it would be a huge waste to abandon MCS ‘project’ after all that has been done, new replacement has been found.

New MCS owners are Cheech5150(account holder and SMP big boss) and pipscraft (co-owner and CMP big boss). Good ol’ ylt will keep his role as main tech-guy.

Most of you know us from the game, and we hope we wont disappoint you in future.
Rest of staff members will be (re)introduced later, after we finish with staff charter.

As for Minecraft and the news related to it, we decided that for now we will stay with 1.7.9/1.7.10 server version until proper replacement has been found. At this point it is not clear which one will it be, but we will make sure that any replacement we pick is as safe as current one (along with most important plugins).

There will be some changes in rules, gameplay and new creative server will be added to the community. There are also plans about adding new rank(s) and features. :)
Next steps:
  • Staff charter - to decide upon certain details and changes in server policy.
  • Announcement with info about new policy, opening of a new world, server etc.
  • Community meeting - we will listen to your ideas and suggestions and see if it is possible to apply them with the new server.

I guess this is enough info for one day. Staff members will soon receive invites to the staff charter which will start on 20th of September.
