Off-Topic Discussion / Nerf Luis?
« on: 25 April 2020, 03:43:16 AM »
It has come to the attention of many players on the server that Luis is getting to be a bit OP. Pinging him to ask him a question or tell him a problem often leads to an impressive level of random yet useful knowledge and he often has solutions to common problems.

Is he too good? His stats are kinda rigged if we're being honest. It might be time to do something about it.

Please vote now on this important matter.

Hey all, based on a bunch of feedback, I've rewritten the CM role to be more clear, more in-line with reality, and I'd like to put it to Parliament for a vote, to make the CM role's new rules officially approved by you all.

General Discussion / Staff recommendations
« on: 5 March 2020, 11:03:14 PM »
Brothers and sisters, friends, comrades, people of VillageCraft, everyone,

As part of the player-driven Revive VC campaign, we've been informed / it has been requested that we need new staff to help us all get to that goal. New staff that know the players that currently play, and who want to have an integral role in actively improving and helping the server. Many of our current staff are inactive or semi-inactive, and are out of touch with the current active players, so it's time to add some fresh faces. Staff nominate and vote on all Staff additions and removals, so help us out.

We don't normally ask players to recommend themselves or others, but on this rare occasion, please do exactly that. Please suggest a player for Staff. Please add a little line or two as to why it makes sense. Please also state if you are active, semi-active, or inactive. Thanks.

General Discussion / Thank you! - 7 Years of VillageCraft - Since 2011
« on: 8 December 2018, 01:56:00 AM »
It's December, and that means VillageCraft is another year older. This experiment of running an open, relaxed, and free Minecraft server started in December 2011, and we're so damn happy to have met so many cool people through the years. Thank you, truly, for making VC part of your lives. We've met a diverse set of people.

People from every country, ethnicity, sexual belonging, political standpoint, from various points in our lives, depressed, well-off, rich, poor, working, wondering about life, having unique ideas, off to school, off to work, off on a date, off to the military, off on an adventure, artistically creative, socially witty, mathematically and engineeringly inclined, community oriented, lone wolves, grumpy, charming, loving, caring, and just overall fun, interesting, and funny human beings. Thank you all so much for being a part of this.

Whether you're still here, you've gone on to new things, you're just joining, you pop in from time to time, or you're back for a visit; thank you for making VillageCraft one of the best internet communities I have ever had the privilege to call myself a member of. I really hope VC has helped you in some way, big or small. I hope it has been a meaningful and positive place in your life.

Here's to the future! Here's to making the world a better place. Though it's just a game's community carved out from the vast entity that is the internet and the human race, here's to VillageCraft being a positive force in the world, and I sincerely hope, a cool place to hang out and chat and play games together.


Cheers to you all, thank you for 7 years!

Much love and endless, infinite piles of cheese,
~Akofine

General Discussion / VillageCraft Lore
« on: 6 January 2018, 05:30:25 PM »
A traveller of both space and time, and also space-time, Akomine was born on Io (Jupiter I) in the year 12,471, and at age 12 moved to the city of Cydonia, Mars. He grew up playing in the rivers near his house, with the occasional trip to the family cottage on Titan. In 12,539 he served alongside his father in the Third Interstellar War. Due to their family business as jetpack manufacturers, they were obviously stationed on 82 G. Eridani III. The war concluded seven years later, and their advanced jetpack systems were often regarded as a key technology in winning hundreds of battles.

Upon returning home to Mars, Akomine often thought back to the different planets and moons he had seen in the universe, and dreamed of terraforming his very own one day. Along with a friend from Io (Kyromine), and a friend he met during the war (Bl4ck_St0ne), they took a starship to the Forbidden Planet (Earth) and abducted a series of animals to assist in colonizing a new planet. Along their trip through space they landed to refuel at a mining colony near the outer edge of the Oort cloud where they met a freelance miner (Soundbyte_mantra) who knew of an uninhabited planet that would fit their desires.

Picking up life forms from a few worlds here and there, the four travellers finally found their planet; Overworld. Several centuries of terraforming later, the planet was ready for life, so they dispersed the many animals they collected among the forests, mountains and lakes of Overworld. In the 18th century of Overworld's history, a group of space pirates landed on the planet and terrorized the native population. By the 1860's the leader of the space pirates, James Qualia, decided to call Overworld their new home. They established a town in 1867 and named it Qualia. Needing more settlers for Overworld, from time to time, the Qualia space pirates kidnap innocent people, wipe their memories, and drop them in Qualia to start anew. Akomine is totally cool with it.

Off-Topic Discussion / Minecraft clunky launcher bullshit
« on: 4 April 2017, 04:31:03 PM »
So 99.999% of the time I open MC Launcher, I ignore literally everything other than the play button, and click play.


And what god damn happens is not only does another window open, but TWO more windows open, and it creates "nativelog.txt" on my desktop.


So now my screen is cluttered, and my desktop has a useless icon of clutter added to it. What the hell is this garbage, honestly? 1 window, just launch the damn game, fuck off. I understand the launcher window being separate for companies that have several games, but this is just a MC launcher.

Why do I have to close 2 windows every time, and delete a stupid desktop icon EVERY TIME? Is there a way to fix this INSANITY? Specifically the nativelog.txt. I was able to disable the window clutter in the launcher settings. I just want the stupid desktop icon to BE GONE.

We don't normally announce these things like this, but because of the unusually large number of complaints against this player, I thought it would be in the interest of many on this server to know that she is banned permanently. Die_Endermen (KylizzleJenner) has been permanently banned.

She, as does anyone, has the opportunity to appeal her ban.

Take care

Parliament | Suggestions / DISCUSS: EggCatcher and Experience Bottles
« on: 11 March 2017, 07:14:06 PM »
The Community Minister has presented signatures to the Staff for these 2 plugins to receive a Parliament vote.
We need to figure out a few things first.

EggCatcher
https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/eggcatcher.4038/
This plugin allows for a catch chance, as well as a cost to catch.

Questions:
Which mobs should be catchable?
What should the catch chance be? Should it be different for different mobs?
What should the cost be? Items, money? Should it be different for different mobs?
Anything else?

Should the plugin be functional, the Staff will take ideas into consideration for the upcoming Parliament vote.


EXPBottles
https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/expbottles.32516/
This plugin allows a limit of experience per bottle (10 default), and a cost.

What should the limit of experience be per bottle?
Should there be a cost to fill bottles?
Anything else?

Should the plugin be functional, the Staff will take ideas into consideration for the upcoming Parliament vote.

To diagnose the recent lag, our host has stopped the server to make a copy of it.

On the copy they will check for chunk errors that might be contributing to the lag.

The server will be down for a bit while the copy is made.

Parliament | Suggestions / How To Suggest Plugins and Features
« on: 3 March 2017, 02:54:17 AM »
Suggesting Server Changes & Features
You may want to suggest a change to the server, so it's best to do it properly. If you're just casually brainstorming ideas (which is good!), you should post that in General Discussion.

Here, you should post in a way that clearly describes the change to the server so that we can all understand what you're proposing.

Remember, proposing changes can be a good thing, but you are proposing changes that likely to affect everyone on the server. If your proposal gets lots of interest/debate/ideas on it, the more likely it is to get recognized. Offer feature ideas with detail, and if it's a plugin, provide a link.



Suggesting Plugins
Plugins are packages that add features to a server.

1. Find the plugin you're suggesting on the Bukkit or Spigot plugin pages and post a link:
https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/categories/bukkit.4/
https://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins

2. Describe what you'd like to see on the server, and especially how it would alter play on the server. What are the benefits? Any concerns? Get a discussion going, get interest in the idea.

3. If there is enough interest, you can contact the Community Minister, who can gather signatures for a Parliament Vote on the idea.

The CM will run the events, but will work with the Staff to make sure the event is possible before organizing it.

2. Parliament Organizer
The CM will represent the players' interests by organizing votes in the VillageCraft Parliament. The CM can collect signatures from the MPs that can trigger a CM Parliament Vote Initiative to take place. Details below in Section D.


B
Election Process:
CM Elections are triggered by player request. Elections can be requested at any time. CMs serve until a new election occurs.

- 5 players who are MPs request a new election, and;
- 1 Staff member requests a new election.

- A declaration they want to run.

ii. The nomination process ends and proceeds to an election when there are at least 2 candidates and no more nominations are coming in.

3. Election
i. The CM election between all nominated candidates uses the Approval voting method, where voters approve all candidates they feel would be good in the role. If there is a winner, they are offered to become the new Community Minister.

ii. If there is a tie for winner, a First-Past-The-Post election ballot between the tied winners will determine the final winner, where voters make only 1 choice. Further ties will be resolved with a random number generator.

ii. CM Team members are not offered compensation or a tag.


D
Parliament Vote Initiative Process:
The CM is given local moderator status on the VC Forum Parliament Board, and can gather player signatures to trigger Parliament votes. The following process can be followed, in order, to start a Parliament vote.

1. Gather Player Signatures and Staff Sponsorship
i. 5 signatures from players who want to propose a discussion and vote take place on a specific initiative. The players must be MPs, and must not be Staff or the CM.

ii. 1 signature from a member of Staff who is willing to help implement the initiative if successful.

2. Parliament Discussion
i. The CM shall create a Parliament Forum thread, announcing the proposal, the signatures, and the Staff sponsorship. The thread shall include the first draft of the text to be put to vote.

ii. Based on feedback from players and Staff, the text may be updated and improved upon.

iii. Given enough interest, the final version of the text can be clearly written and delivered to the VC Staff.

3. Consent of the Staff
i. The final text of the initiative must be approved by 3 Staff members based solely on feasibility, viability, and ability to implement the initiative if successful. This shall not be based on personal approval or disapproval.

ii. In the case where a System Admin must be involved in the implementation, Consent of at least 1 must be gained.

iii. If there is genuine reasonable disapproval from a Staff member, the proposal may be put to Staff vote. If it fails, and/or if needed, Staff may request a rewrite of the initiative before they give consent, in which case the process returns to Stage "2. ii."

iv. If Consent of the Staff has been given, the Staff shall inform the Parliament in the relevant forum thread. The initiative can then proceed to an official Parliament Vote.

4. CM Initiative Parliament Vote
i. This is an official and binding Parliament Vote. The final text of the initiative shall be displayed for MPs to vote on. The MPs shall be given clear voting choices, as well as the option to abstain.

ii. The vote shall run for an initial 5 days. The vote may be shortened by 2 days if the decision is overwhelmingly one-sided. The vote may be extended several times if there is ongoing discussion or votes are still coming in to allow everyone a chance to participate.

I do not know if the UK will actually leave the EU because of this. I think in the near future we are going to see a lot of arguments about why there should be another referendum, and because of the obvious flaws in the run-up to this vote, it might actually happen.

Furthermore, I think this pretty much solidifies that Scotland is going to leave the United Kingdom.


But I'm not hugely knowledgeable about all this, as I'm not British. I know we have a bunch of Brits on the server, anyone care to chime in with your own take on all of this? Pissed off? Satisfied?
