Hi everyone,

Please note that due to inactivity of the author of our nicknaming plugin and difficulties finding a suitable replacement – I have had no choice but to remove the nickname feature from the server.

Currently, it is hard to know whether this is a permanent change but I would expect to be.  If the author of the nicknaming plugin can update the plugin to 1.11.2 or a suitable new nicknaming plugin can be found, I will work on adding the feature back (that said, it currently seems unlikely).

Thanks.

All,

This is my first post in a while.  I thought I would post a small update on everything that will be happening over the next few months but first – a (slightly late) happy new year and welcome to 2017!  Hopefully everyone had a great Christmas too.

I’ve gone very quiet recently as between one thing and another, it’s been hard to get online and find the time to balance everything – particularly with college.  However, I aim to be more active now and work on the server significantly more as I’ve now got more time in the coming months as assignments ease (less than the pre-Christmas rush anyway).  That said however, I would expect to need to take a break from the server just before the beginning of summer again to work more of finishing assignments but we can worry about that closer to the time.

Player count also seems to have dropped and interest in the sever seems to be less than what it was before – that’s okay, the server hasn’t had much love in a few months now and it gets boring player a server by yourself.  We aim to work on improving the server over the month of January and in February, we aim to push to increase player count.
I also wanted to bring to your attention the server move which happened just after the new year.  In a nutshell, we felt it would be best to move the location of the server from Europe (France, to be specific) to Canada simply based on the geographic location of our users as we’ve noticed much of our users connect from North or South America and as such we’ve moved accordingly.

Alongside the move, we’ve also updated all servers to Minecraft 1.11.2.  There was only one issue with the upgrade – our nicknaming plugin.  The plugin we use to provide nicknames has not yet been upgraded to 1.11.2 and as such it has been disabled.  This has presented one major issue – player names are not displaying properly as the placeholder for player names is obviously not being replaced with the correct nickname.  This is something I am working on – should an update not be available within the coming days, we may need to disable nicknames temporarily while we wait for an update.

One last, more exciting update – our webstore will so be hosting freebies which can be redeemed once per day, this may include in-game items, money or tokens.  We are looking forward to this and we will update you when these are available.  Additionally, please note our webstore has changed addresses to https://minersrealm.buycraft.net/.

That’s it for today.  Thanks for reading!

Hello everyone, today I am very pleased to announce the release of MinersRealm.  There are a lot of changes since we went offline and the server has been completely rebuilt from the ground up.  I’m going to go over some of the major changes in this post, this is by no means an exhaustive list.

 

Iron, Gold and Diamond are now called Premium

As there were very few purchases of anything other than our Diamond package, we have replaced these three packages with one - MinersRealm Premium (which is fully EULA compliant, please see below for more information).  Our webstore has also moved from MinecraftMarket to Buycraft as after many issues with MinecraftMarket it was no longer a viable solution.

 

EULA Compliant

MinersRealm is now fully EULA compliant (with regard to the document found at https://account.mojang.com/terms#commercial).  Unfortunately this gives us less possibilities of what can be given within MinersRealm Premium but we have tried to do our best to keep our perks compliant as well as rewarding.

 

More premium plugins

Premium plugins tend to be of higher quality than free ones and we have tried to where possible use high quality, premium plugins.

 

This includes but is not limited to the following;

  • PowerfulPerms - a high quality, fast and lightweight permissions plugin.  PowerfulPerms fixes many issues we experienced with PermissionsEX in the past, namely bad synchronisation of ranks over servers - it usually took a restart for your new rank to be fully available over all servers on the network and this has now been fixed with PowerfulPerms.

  • DeluxeChat - an efficient, feature-rich chat plugin.  Three words; cross-server-chat.  Yes, you no longer to be on the same server to talk to someone (DeluxeChat also a previate message feature so /msg is now cross server too).  DeluxeChat also gives us a great deal more options to customise chat.

  • SurvivalGames - one of the most advanced and popular Survival Games plugin is now running on our Survival Games server.

  • AAC - short for Advanced Anti-Cheat the clue is in the name.  We hope to never need to think about hacks again with AAC which is now running on all servers, this plugin is far more advanced than other anti-cheat plugin.

  • LiteBans - a superior infractions plugin.  While you may not notice much different, this is a big change for staff - an easy to use punishment plugin.

 

A Hub server

We are very please to open our Hub server custom built by our very own Build Team.  This is something we wanted to do for a while but simply never got the time due to all the other bugs which needed fixed.  With an improvement in the plugins we are using and thus hopefully the near full eradication of bugs on MinersRealm we have a lot more time on our hand and we feel we put to good use.

 

A token system

Although still very much in it’s early days we have switched from a dollar based currency to a token based one.  As of now you can only get these tokens in one of two ways - either by voting or by playing Survival Games (a kill is 1 token and a win 5).  We plan on adding much more ways to get tokens very soon.

 

New ranks and ranking system

MinersRealm now has 9 ranks.  Citizen, Artisan, Welder, Engineer, Moderator, Administrator, Owner, Build Team and Premium.  Build Team and Premium are additional ranks while the rest (Citizen through Owner) are on the default ladder.  Ranking up is now very different too; we felt that it’s a very ineffective method to have staff rankup players manually and so we have added a rankup shop (which can be accessed using /rankup).  From here you can purchase a rank upgrade with tokens.

 

GriefPrevention on Survival and Creative

We are very pleased to now be running GriefPrevention on our Survival and Creative servers.  This is replacing MyChunk and PlotSquared on Survival and Creative respectively.  With this there are many changes to the gameplay of these servers; namely Creative is now an open world as opposed to a plot world.  Please note however you do need to claim land in Creative before you can place or break blocks, this is simply to prevent massive grief to our Creative map.  Additionally, you will now gain more claimable blocks with play time.

 

Phew, that was a lot.  Remember this is by no means an exhaustive list of everything claimed but it does cover most of the major things.  We hope to see you on MinersRealm again soon!
