  3. Locked signs are no longer lockable and all signs have been unlocked
  4. ST Approval signs and Eviction signs are now available for use: To get an ST Approved sign to replace an existing one on your lore structure, please make a /sreq. When interacting, they will play an audio queue and output the approver: To place down an eviction sign, a region owner (or Moderator) has to put [Eviction] on the first line. When interacting, they will play an audio queue and output the issuer, and the time until expiry (3 days from pacement): For both types of signs, the remaining lines can say anything.
  5. Hello, As of one week from today signs will no longer be lockable. This includes lift signs, gates, etc. Old locked signs will be automatically unlocked. Please assure you make any needed changes to your builds to accommodate this. This will take effect next Friday, Oct 8, after the restart at 11:59 PM EST. An alternative solution is being coded for Story team approval signs, and eviction signs, when ready this post will be updated. If not ready by Monday the effective date will be pushed a week. Cheers, Staff
  6. Hello, the server is now officially on Minecraft 1.16.5. With this brings the removal of Vortex, as well as the introduction of the many building blocks available with this update. Patchnotes Vortex [-] Removed Vortex, with all items being converted to either Vanilla, SurgePVP items, or Terra botany resources. Various crafting restrictions have been removed with this. Terra/Hubs [+] Added Terra, an improved node management plugin. [+] Fast travel hubs have been entirely redesigned, nation mines have been improved. [+] Vanilla resource nodes can be gathered with vanilla tools, which are craftable in the Crafting Table. [+] Nation mines feature various vanilla resources such as iron, coal, redstone, gold, lapis, and obsidan. [+] Hubs feature most building blocks, including many new ones added in 1.16. Some of these nodes drop multiple resource blocks. [+] Alchemist Shears and the Hammer and Chisel can be crafted at the Crating Table, to gather botany resources and 'Lore Materials' (such as lightstone) respectively. [!] The World Team is still working on setting up the nodes at the hubs, they will be populated over the rest of the week. SurgePVP [+] Added SurgeCrafting, an easy to use crafting plugin for SurgePVP gear, accessible with any Smithing Table. [+] Shields are now craftable. [+] Pikes (as tridents) have been added. [+] Non-combat swords for item-editing can now be made using vanilla recipes in the Crafting Table (search up 'Training Sword'). [~] Various gear stats have been adjusted. [~] For the moment, SurgePVP gear can not be edited with /edit, though vanilla tools and swords are craftable (see above). [-] All armor tiers except ferrum platemail, ferrum chainmail, and leather gambeson have been removed. [-] All weapon tiers except ferrum and aurum have been removed. Notes [+] Notes is a basic plugin that allows everyone to write in paper. [+] Up to 6 personas may write on the same piece of paper with different handwritings for each one. [+] One or more personas may also sign the paper, this will not stop someone else from writing under the signature. The signatures do not have to come from writers, anyone can sign a note, there are no limits. [+] If the note isn't signed (or only signed by you), it can also be copied to other papers. Remember you can't copy someone else's handwriting, it will have your own. [+] Bedrock VIPs and higher have access to colored writing. [+] Type /notes help to get started. Other [+] Yong Ping's new capital and two settlements have had their builds pasted in with 1.16 building blocks, make sure to check them out! [-] The Snow Elf mechanical race has been removed. [!] Curios and Nations are both almost ready to launch, though the techs working on them want a little more polish, so they will not be included in this update. These plugins should be seen on the server in the next few weeks! Tech Team Update Thank you to everyone for your patience with this update. These kind of large updates are challenging on their own to coordinate, but this one posed special challenges. The removal of Vortex, mainly the conversion of defunct items to Vanilla was not an easy task, and took far longer than expected. In total, 22,747 personas, 132,280 storage containers, and 115,153 entities in the world had to be scanned for Vortex items and properly updated. A grand total of 192,388 item-stacks were converted. This was accomplished using the Noteworthy Equipment Xtreme Updated and Scanner (N.E.X.U.S.). We had tested much of this code beforehand on Beta Server, though converting the main server showed some issues with the code that could not have been tested on the beta server. All in all, the rest of the code-base for this update (everything unrelated to the conversion) worked very well on the first try. The other major issues with this update, is that the team has very few people who have the knowledge on how to do such a large transition, and the expertise of LotC's setup. Basically it's just myself and Telanir who have ever done this before, and it's not something that can be easily trained either. It is a very manual task requiring several hours of one person's time, and not everything can be properly tested on beta with our current setup, and of course is prone to human error. I don't intend to ever do this again. I'm looking into various automation tools that would allow most of this work to be done and tested in a parallel environment beforehand, and am hoping our 1.18 update will be much easier the day-of. As previously mentioned, we will not be transitioning to 1.17, but instead going right to 1.18 when it is available and stable. Shoutouts Thank you to @The60th @CommissarVoop @Telanir @Jistuma and @aiden0023 for their contributions to this update. Thank you to @6xdestroyer @Laeonathan @Minth_11 @Disheartened @Witchlore @WestCarolina @BathRugMan @Lionbileti @AgentOfChaos@FloralHedgehog and @lawnmowerman for their work on the hub rebuilds. Thanks to @SquakHawk @Heero @HogoBojo @Space and @FloralHedgehog for help with Terra node setup.
  7. Hello all! Today I am happy to announce that after many months of hard work from Tech Team, we are now ready to transition to Minecraft 1.16.5. We have scheduled a maintenance window for: Tuesday, August 17th, 8:00 am EST - 6:00 pm EST During this time the main server will be unavailable, though lobbies, the museum server, and our beta server will be accessible. There may be brief windows of time where the server network is entirely inaccessible as we apply updates to our proxy as well. After the window is closed, our server will be fully on 1.16.5, which will be the minimum required version to connect. We currently support connections from 1.16.5 client, so I recommend you update now if you have not already. This update brings along many building blocks, as well as the sunsetting of Vortex, and the introduction of Surge PVP and Terra. Full information about these changes can be found on the original 1.16.5 Information Thread. A full changelog will be released alongside the update, though it will look much like what was outlined in the previous post. However, we will not be seeing the change to ItemEdit and the reintroduction of hookahs yet, though those are still active projects. A couple of new plugins will be introduced, including a Nations information system, Curios, and some updates to Lockpicking mechanics. The World and Story team will also be introducing some changes to the Hubs and Nodes, using the new features in Terra. More information about the new features will follow the update. Thanks to @The60th @aiden0023 @CommissarVoop and @Telanir for their work on this update. After we are on 1.16.5, we will remain there until a stable version of 1.18 is available. Due to a variety of factors including reported stability issues, we have no present plans to update to 1.17. We will instead be focusing on other projects to better the roleplay experience. Cheers, Llir | Technical Administrator

  10. Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying all of the events of our ten year anniversary celebration so far! For a full list of events, check the schedule here. For this post, the Tech Team and World Team are really exited to announce the release of two related initiatives we have been working on: Map Archive All of our major maps (including for the first time a full version of Arcas) are now available for download at archives.lordofthecraft.net, where we plan to host them indefinitely! All of these maps have been loaded on 1.16.5, it is recommended you use this version to browse them. Thank you to crazyeights11 for providing a majority of these downloads for us to share with all of you. Note: Some of these maps are only partial, so if you see missing chunks that is why. Museum Server To showcase our collection of past maps, a special server has been setup to host the maps at museum.lotc.co (1.16.5+ needed to connect), or directly accessed through typing /museum on the main server. This server features a custom plugin for navigation between the worlds, and a wonderful hub world to showcase the 'exhibits'. To get started, just right click with the soul lantern on login to navigate between worlds, or type /help for a list of commands such as spectator, nightvision, and client-side time and weather. Huge shoutouts for putting the Museum Server together: - @aiden0023 for setting up the server, coding the custom plugin, and importing the worlds. Without him this project would not have been possible. #InvestInAidenCoin! - @Heero leading the project, organizing and designing, and helping Aiden get things up and running. - @Gamma, @BathRugMan, and @6xdestroyer for building the hub world. - @CommissarVoop for helping polish off the plugin. Enjoy the nostalgia, Llir
  11. It's been a great time helping this server grow. I'm so excited for what we'll be doing down the line. Cheers to ten, and many more.
