Anybody have any specific suggestions on ore placement?
I wish I could specify which ores spawn where, cause then we'd have different areas with different ore specialties.
Quoted the same person's quote twice, fuck the police.
Doing some changes to the server, it'll be down for a bit.
ok nevermind then
However I can see this giving an element of luck to faction creation, and that may not be so popular. I for one am still fine with default ore placement.
Putting in some work
Enderpearls will be blocked
Obsidian will be weakened so it can be destroyed with tnt (Albiet very slowly)
Cobble will be buffed up for explosions
Clay bricks will be near new obby strength (A bit weaker, but still pretty strong)
Stonebricks will be buffed
Smooth Stone will be buffed
Nether brick will be buffed
TNT will be less expensive
TNT may have a chance on exploding when placed or broken
Water will no longer be protected from explosions (Tnt cannons will subsequently require maintanence between firing, less then normal due to buffs however)
Lava will no longer protect from explosions
Also going to look into buffing leather armor (making it faster movement and ranged damage lowered)
Also going to look into reenabling creeper explosions
Also going to look into armor slowdowns (Diamond/Steel/gold is heavy!)
Also going to look into blocking underground farming
What these changes will accomplish:
A huge revamped PvP experience, not only will sieges take longer, and require more work/man power
but new elements of combat will open up with leather armor and stuff.
These changes will also contribute to more civilization styled building by allowing regular materials to be resistant to explosion and actually giving large walls function, instead just being hopped over or blasted through in one bomb.
This means we can have long wars between factions, complex alliance systems, instead of just one 2 hour war where everybody gets pwnt by the guy with knowledge of the tnt cannon.
New plugins will also be coming to emphasize trade, but for now PvP is going to have some alterations.
Please rate/reply with your opinions.
Most of the changes are pretty unneeded. PvP is fine as is, I don't think anyone here was even complaining about TNT. Also that TNT may have a chance to explode on place is really stupid. I'm kinda on the fence about the cobble being buffed because yes, I am tired of walls doing absolutely nothing against TNT, but you have to understand, TNT is what made walls obsolete in the real world.
How did any of that add something to the alliance system? And how did you make TNT less expensive, did you change the recipe? Also, if you're going to make TNT cheaper, you shouldn't nerf obsidian. If I can get enough obsidian to line my entire wall with it, I do not think it's fair that it can be destroyed so easily. I guess it depends on how "slow" you can destroy it, I don't want 3 tnt blasts and my obsidian is useless.
You didn't even buff walls lol:
I'm starting to think you haven't even implemented them, TNT isn't even cheaper.
Well, if you haven't then wasting that 1 tnt isn't amazingly useless, we can use it to test the difference.
Oh, he restarted the server so I thought he put them in...
People rating me and raging over shit I haven't even implemented yet, hold your horses jeez.
I'm not white-listed for the server. Wat?
I rated you because you said "Please rate/reply with your opinions."
(accept my inviteeee and whitelist me, i wanna help :c)
Whitelist is removed, some people are helping make the spawn look nice with creative mode, pay not attention to them.
I'm getting an End of Steam error. Are you guys on 1.2.5 or further, or is it down?
The reason walls were buffed is because it would require more work and people to take down an elaborate fort/base. We would have longer wars rather than enderpearling over a wall or just blasting the base to smithereens in two shots. This means alliances would be more useful for longer wars and building would be less restricted to obsidian boxes and factions can actually focus on building more rather than constantly PvPing.
Also notice the "will be" part of those new changes, I'm still adding shit.
Thanks very much for all my helpers today
Gotta love it when the community runs itself :)
I don't mean to toot my own horn (and Jake's and Dankie's), but spawn looks awesome now.
Wow, you guys and my brother did a great job. I'm really impressed.
FRANCOCELTICA RULEZ YEAHHHHH
This is Coal Town. It was a cool town. Not pictured are the other cool stuff.
it was nuked by drunk irishmen
Didn't you start playing like 2 days ago? Why didn't francoceltica nuke somebody else? They are probably the most powerful ATM.
Everyone in the faction who was in the raid felt really really bad after that. We even planned on burning down your tree, but when they saw it, they decided it was too awesome to ruin all that good work.
It's just unclaimed right now, so if the faction leader or an op comes on they can reclaim it.
I didn't kill anyone, I only blew open a door with tnt :3
Like I said, highly impressed.
I've finished about 70% of the world. All i need to do are the americas and the antarctic and the map will be complete.
Can someone explain to me what the 3 numbers mean when you type /f list? the 56/80/80? Everyone tell me something different.
Mannoks 2: Electric Boogaloo tried to raid USBR and failed with my help and some other factioners.
Get shit on niggers.
56 is how many chunks the faction has claimed.
80 is the combined power of all the members of the faction. If one of them were to die, the faction's power would go down. If the power were go below the amount of land claimed (56/50, for example) opposing factions would be able to claim the chunks making up the difference.
The second 80 is the faction's max power- the combined maximum power of all the members of the faction. If there are 8 people in the faction and each person has 10 power, the faction would have a maximum of 80 power.
Fuck you Dankie, one of our members wrecked your shit!
Lol zertuk controls sdwilliams and superdaiu
Another Glorious Sunrise in Spain.
Who ever finds the ruins of the Gun Runners: please take care of my cat for me.
honestly I don't know why this isn't against the rules, it's amazingly easy to do and amazingly hard to clean up. Take maybe a total of 2 minutes to do and like 30 minutes to clean up.
Oh wait, no I thought it might just be alot of water, but no, it was one source block and lava I guess was under it:
Make that like an hours worth :/
So yeah, a stack of TNT later and I only got rid of a fourth of it. I can't even use the McMMO super giga breaker or w/e the fuck because it doesn't work on cobble.
