Hello everyone! I am here to give you some information for the upcoming map, Dawn. As has already been stated, the new map will be amplified terrain generation, yay mountains! It will have a world border of 6,000 x 6,000. We should have the majority of our plugins (I've missed the depths so much!) on release, with some exceptions and changes. Oh, did I mention release is today? Notably, flux is being removed, and all teleports will be free. This is subject to change in the future. Also, we are replacing Grief Prevention with Claim Manager (used on the STB server). It works fairly similar to GP. Starting out, you have 4,096 claim blocks to use for free (each block includes the entire y-axis from bedrock to the build height). After you have used those, you can purchase more claim blocks for 0.39 shards each. To create a claim, select two opposing corners using a wooden axe, then type in “/region claim <name>”. You can make subzones within your claim using the same command, just remember to select two different corners on the y axis! A video will be available on the site soon(TM). You can add friends to your claim/sub-zone by typing “/region addmember <region name> <player name>”. You can change flags in your claims/sub-zones (such as enabling/disabling pvp) with the command, "/region flag <region name> <flag name> <allow/deny/none>". The available flags are: pvp, build (placing/breaking blocks), use (redstone stuff like buttons, doors, pressure plates etc), and chest-access (ability to open chests, furnaces, etc). To remove a claim, type /region remove <region name>. Here is a somewhat lengthy video outlining the major features of the plugin: Finally for the end of the post, THE END! I mean, we'd like your thoughts on the End. As you all know, the End has had a pretty big revamp in 1.9 with the ability to respawn the dragon, more landmass, a new monster, a new plant, a new dungeon, and the Elytra. The dungeons in the End can be few and far and between as it is, and not every single one even generates an Elytra. I'm worried that there will end up being a shortage of Elytra on the server as players set out across the End, pillaging End ships like void vikings. For technical reasons we can't currently do an End depths, which would handily solve that potential issue. The way we see it there are 3 options: 1. Reset the End monthly (would prevent people from building homes/cities in the end, as well as Enderman grinders); 2. Sell the Elytra on the market (for a high price); or 3. Just leave it as is and let the Elytra be extremely rare (like a good steak). Please vote in the poll above, and leave comments or suggestions in a post below.
