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.

General Discussion / Server stopped to check for errors
« on: 4 March 2017, 08:32:28 PM »
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.

Role:
1. The Community Minister (CM) will be elected to serve as a community organizer on VC. The CM's goal shall be to create and run events to help bring the community together to have fun and make the server a better place to play. This could include building competitions, PVP matches, boat bumper cars, marathons, elytra races, and anything else to get people involved. The CM will run the events, but will work with the Staff to make sure the event is possible before organizing it.

2. The Community Minister will also serve as an organizer for the VillageCraft Parliament. Aiming to represent the views of the Members of Parliament, the CM can collect signatures from the MPs to recommend a Parliament vote take place. The CM will work with the Staff to ensure the proposal is possible. Consent of the Staff along with 5 signatures will be required to trigger a vote.

4. The CM will have the ability to talk directly to Staff about potential events and Parliament votes.
5. The CM will be a local Forum Moderator for the Parliament Board.

Air is a coward

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?

General Discussion / Longer days and nights
« on: 13 April 2016, 08:54:12 PM »
The day-night cycle in Minecraft is usually 20 minutes:
- 10 min day
- 1.5 min dusk
- 7 min night
- 1.5 min dawn

We have doubled the length of the day-night cycle to 40 minutes, so now on VC it's:
- 20 min day
- 3 min dusk
- 14 min night
- 3 min dawn


That means about 26 minutes of mob-free daylight to build, explore, and do anything you need to do. This should be a lot more time to do what you need in a day. The night is a bit longer now too, so beware of that. To balance this, the crazy mobspawning rates we were seeing have been lowered quite a lot. It should be a lot fairer now.

You'll notice the sun, moon, and stars move through the sky a lot slower now. I think it feels pretty nice this way. Please let us know what you think.

How to set your Minecraft version to 1.8.9 to play VillageCraft:

1. Click "Edit Profile".


2. In the "Use version" drop-down box, select "release 1.8.9".


3. Click "Save Profile".


And that's it. Play the game!

Most Minecraft servers won't be updated for a while, especially ones with plugins. We can probably get VillageCraft Vanilla updated ASAP though. Cheers!

We will hopefully get VillageCraft updated ASAP as it looks like bukkit/spigot were ready this time 'round.

Sounds good to everyone.

Thought I'd let those of you who use Steam know. http://store.steampowered.com

Feel free to highlight some games you see on sale.



My highlights:

Elite Dangerous
67% off (roughly $15 or ?10) http://store.steampowered.com/app/359320/

Space simulator that takes place in the Milky Way 1300 years in the future with trading, fighting, piracy, illegal smuggling, and much more in a variety of detailed and immersive ships to fly. Choose the role(s) you'd like to play, buy and outfit your ship to fit those roles, and do it all co-op with friends if you'd like (or strangers, up to you). Very immersive first person spaceship flying. Pretty cool game, it's going to be developed for the next decade piece by piece.

If you decide to buy Elite, you may choose to buy the expansion (which allows you to land on and explore 1:1 scale planets) at https://www.elitedangerous.com/, as it comes out in December and includes the base game with it.

If you'd like an open world spaceflight and spaceship dogfighting game, play this game.



Chivalry
80% off ($5, or $7 for expansion + base game) http://store.steampowered.com/app/219640/

First Person Swordfighting, where you can attack multiple ways, and where accuracy counts. Timing, footwork, and placement of your swings, slashes, downswings, jabs, kicks, parries, and blocks are all important. Very fun online multiplayer game unlike any other. Third person view also available.

The base game Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is with medieval knights and archers fighting, the expansion Chivalry: Deadliest Warrior includes knights and adds vikings, samurai, ninjas, spartans, and pirates. Both are very fun.

If you like cutting off the heads of your enemies in the heat of battle, play this game.



Cities Skylines
50% off ($15) http://store.steampowered.com/app/255710/

The city-builder that modern Sim City games should have been. This is an excellent city builder that is smooth to play, fairly easy to learn, and provides a very open platform for you to plan your city however you like. The game has steam workshop mod support, so you can customize however you like.

If you like building, design, and planning, play this game.



FOF (Fistful of Frags)
Free http://store.steampowered.com/app/265630/

Fully and completely free first person shooter set in the old west. Uses the Source Engine (Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, etc). Has a variety of guns, dynamite, and other weapons, and plenty of whiskey to drink. This is a solid multiplayer game with unique mechanics that are fun to master. Despite being free, the devs still update it frequently and consistently. This game doesn't take itself too seriously, which is refreshing.

If you like oldschool gunfighting with people online, drinking whiskey to survive, and not spending a dime, play this game.
