A simple creative plot server is now available for everyone to use! It's all alive and runs fine, and we're going to be adding the following features to be able to use on it!
WorldEdit levels available
Buying extra plots
Building contests weekly!
Advanceable ranks based on builds
Buildings can be entered as spawns
A few of the features are not quite available yet for people to be able to use, so we'll be trying to add them as soon as possible. We'll be working to bring more players onto the network, and then we'll try to form us all together to intertwine the community.
The builds from our previous creative server that we consider to be our 'best of' builds from before will be brought over for all to see.
First planned Build Contest:
Saturday, March 8, 2014
Contest will be at 3:00 PM
Winner will get $50,000 on HCTowny and $25,000 on the lobby.
We've been getting a lot of questions recently that could easily be answered if we had a central place to post them. I have went ahead and made a section of help documents where people can go ahead and find the answer to simple problems like these that are repeatedly asked and people complaining that they did not understand if it was in the rules.
This forum section is public and able for anyone to see, so you do not need to be logged in. Guest users are more than welcome to read these over (they probably should!) to get a general idea of how the network runs. You can direct users here with a simple link in the form of http://ironwolfmc.net/help.
Rules and other resources are available there, as well as guidelines that the administration team typically will follow to handle situations as well. Please let me know below if there are any specific subjects that you would like to see an entry on to answer any questions easily that you and likely many other members of the community share.
In light of the recent changes to our Lobby, I have instead reverted the lobby back to its original design that we have been using. The other one didn't quite feel like it belonged with us as this once does, so I've gone ahead and set the changes in.
If you have anything new that you would like to see in the new lobby, please let me know as well as if there are any issues in the lobby.
Yes, since you all seem to be constantly just babbling back and forth in the /newg/ thread, I think that you all would instead appreciate a shoutbox on the forums. A shoutbox allows for you to be able to shout a message and it will stay there and show up to everyone else. It includes a private messaging system that also allows you to click on their name to send a private message.
How many of you actually open your MC client just if you're curious to see who is on the server? I do that a lot. I find it somewhat annoying to wait for it to load up if I even want to play, or if I'm not going to be doing anything.
How many of you use Google Chrome? There's a Chrome plugin you can install to see how many people and what people are online the server. You can install the plugin from here in the Google Webstore (it's free) for Chrome.
How to use it:
1. Install the plugin from the webstore
2. Click on the new Minecraft icon in the top right of your Chrome window
3. Click "options"
4. Enter the following information for it:
- Server address: 126.96.36.199
- Server port: 25565
Enjoy your ability to now see who is online! The player count will update every 5 minutes.
We recently have been picking up a massive amount of spambots on the forums as of lately.
Some people also do not like the ability to have to visit the website outside of the game and then fuss with that, then wait for their account to get approved through the spam filter...
NOT ANYMORE! *insert echo voice here*
Now, you can go ahead and register on the lobby in-game and handle everything from there. It's beautiful and golden, and so far is working seamless. I'll keep you guys updated on any information to come and any caveats that may arise from this.
All you have to do on the lobby is register by typing /register <password> <email>
Say for example I wished to register with the password of Game123 and my email address is [email protected]
