Survival Reset - Announcement

And here we are with the third season for Survival server :D

The reset will be this Friday 1st December 2017 around 6.00 PM UTC+1 as always.

This time we have a really nice spawn by our builders, sign elevators and one of the most requested features so far... /shop menu.
You will not need to warp to the shop anymore, doing /shop will directly open a nicely organized shop and you will be able to buy and sell things anywhere.
How cool is that. A lot. Thank you very much.

Here's a sneak peek of the new spawn (not finished yet!):

EC Updates - New logo, better anticheat, stuff

by NxDs Mon Nov 27, 2017 4:10 pm

It's been a while since the last updates post, we've been busy with some things as you may have seen in #dev-live-updates on our Discord

New Logo
It took us just 1 year to get a revamped version of the logo and 1 month to make a post about it but here it is :D
We finally have our own fancy extended version too saying ExtremeCraft, that's an improvement.
Thanks to @Affliction which is the same person who made the first version. (tags don't really work on forum)

Here's the logo just in case you didn't notice it already for some reason:

Better Anticheat
Before you start crying in the replies of this post yes, we are aware we've had a lot of false kicks and false positives because of this, it was all part of a greater plan for a greater good.
We started working on our own implementation of several checks against hacks such as NoSlow, NoFall, BunnyHop, Bow Aimbot, Derp and Ghost Hand.
We tested as much as we could on our testing servers but the real test is in production.
We tweaked it a lot, changed lot of things and we even had to add changes and fixes to Spigot itself to make it as reliable and efficient as possible.

Let's see how it goes from now, we'll keep improving and applying fixes whenever we'll find issues and new hacks

Anti-Spambot
Our server now provides an advanced spambot detection based on machine learning, data analytics and other fancy words that nobody understands but that make it look a lot better than it actually is.
All the spambots will be banned even before noticing they joined the server. :+1:

/titlepreview
You can now actually see for yourself the preview of all the titles we offer in our store.
We even added the option to test a title with your own username how cool is that. You simply need to do /titlepreview for the list and then /titlepreview <title> to test it

RPG Server
Many people didn't think this day would ever come, but here we are.
We started patching RPG server, this means no more glitches, no more duping, no more false kicks for using special tools and armor.
We fixed everything.

Not just this, we also enabled back some old features we disabled because causing issues AND we also added more add-ons and plugins that will keep you occupied for some more time.
All of this will come with the RPG reset :o
The reset will be soon as always.


For a more in-depth list of changes, fixes and updates join our Discord server and follow me (and Dieu?) in the channel #dev-live-updates



No for real. If you cry about the anticheat kicks of past days under this post you get banned.

Prison Reset - Beta Release

by NxDs Sun Oct 29, 2017 9:06 pm

Boi oh boi didn't that take a while... Months of delays, work, effort, crying but at last the reset has come.

In order to deliver the best, flawless, bug free experience possible we decided to release it 1 week before in beta testing just for a limited amount of volunteers that have a good amount of experience on the gamemode.

This Friday 3rd November the server will be released to the public so be sure to not miss it, we fixed a lot of issues that affected the old prison, just to name some:
  • Unlimited cell blocks
  • Balanced rankup requirements
  • Balanced economy prices
  • Better buildings
  • Better looking mineable areas
  • Added several features and new stuff (haste pots, xp boosters, miner keys, and much more)
Not just this, I know that a lot of you were a bit sad because we will reset after the Halloween Sales and for this reason we are going to apply discounts to the prison section as well after its release waww :o
(we will also add all the missing stuff in store such as legendary keys)


Here's the trailer for the server:


As sort of double announcement, we will now use the beta testing team for every reset we will do that will bring major changes to the game mechanics.
Every time the team will be composed by different members and only by people that actually play the server and that know what its players want to see.

Happy Halloween - Discounts and Stuff

Happy Halloween from all the staff :D
This year we are going to celebrate Halloween like we've always done, that's right, discounts everywhere wawww

Be sure to save up some money for this Halloween because the 30th, the 31st October and the 1st November we are going to apply a 75% discount on all the items in the store!
Don't miss this rare chance to get that rankup you wanted since a while, it's also the perfect time to start trading with other players (watch out for scammers)

This year, for the first time ever believe it or not, we also managed to get a Halloween themed lobby :ghost:
