Factions Reset

Yea believe it or not we managed to maintain the word and get a reset more or less after 6 months :tada:


What can you expect from the reset?

- More balance changes
- Cannons will be actually fixed (no scam I swear) so raiding will be a thing
- Possibly boss fights
- All the chunks will be slime chunks
- Possibly The End world with a bedrock flat floor
- Better KOTH rewards to make KOTH not useless
- Some other stuff that you'll see once we'll reset :ok_hand:

The reset will be this Friday 19th October

You have exactly 72 hours from now to sell everything and farm like if there's no tomorrow to get in /f top 5 in order to be able to claim the coupon rewards.
After the 72 hours, I will be taking a screenshot of the /f top and I'll start handing out free gear and stuff as always, any change to the f top from that moment onwards will be ignored.


We'd like to thank landsend_00 for his support, helped us with bug fixes and several (some still planned) improvements :+1:

Looking for Video Editors! - Contest

by NxDs Fri Oct 12, 2018 4:42 pm

Thanks to one of your suggestions we decided it was a good idea to start looking for someone that would edit videos for our YouTube channel.
For this reason, I'm launching a contest to find the best one (or more than 1?) among our players at editing videos :ok_hand:


What do I need to do to participate?

Step 1 - Download the video and stuff

It's easy, you simply need to download this archive: https://goo.gl/4khJwy

It will contain:
- Raw unedited video
- Folder with images for the intro (PSD and PNG if you don't have Photoshop)
- Folder with images for the background of the captions (PSD and PNG if you don't have Photoshop)
- Archive with the fonts used
- A txt file with the list of captions that will need to be displayed in the video


Step 2 - Edit the video

You are pretty much free to edit the video as you like, the only thing we ask is to add ONLY royalty free music (such as NCS, etc) and to use the font provided in the archive for any kind of text.

You are also free to not use the intro image provided in the archive if you feel like you can make something better.


Step 3 - Upload your work

You will now have to upload your final video on YouTube (better if you make the video unlisted) and send the link with your username here: https://goo.gl/forms/qopCSsbYD7nKIqy82

You are free to send multiple works if you have several different ideas that you want to showcase.
And you can use any video editing software you like, even Microsoft Paint if you feel like it.

Why should I do that?

I like to believe who will participate will do it for the sake of helping the server and making it grow.
This being said, we will also (if you want) feature your channel on our YouTube and we will be discussing in private (if you win the contest) about perks and stuff you may receive for your work.


How much time do I have?

You have 2 weeks starting from now to download, edit and upload your work so the contest will end at 11.59pm October 26th


Yes, you are allowed to show the video to your friends if you want.
I hope to see a lot of good participants but if we won't get anything good out of this no big deal we'll try again in the future :D

BuildBattle - Spawn Plots

by NxDs Sun Oct 07, 2018 10:57 pm

Here we are once more to start yet another BuildBattle on our Creative server.
This time there won't be any kind of theme, you'll be 100% free to build anything you like (2D/3D pixel arts are still a no-go, sry)

We will be selecting the top 12 plots and we will copy paste them over the plots around the spawn plot, the owners and winners will be gifted with 1 extra plot.

How to participate?

Step 1 - Build something on your plot (it can't be a merged plot)
Step 2 - While standing on your plot do /bb participate
Step 3 - Wait for the contest to end


What do I win?

All the top 12 will clearly win exposure for being displayed and showcased next to the spawn plot and they'll get 1 extra free plot to build whatever they like on it, they will also be eligible to become part of our builders team (the headbuilder would eventually proceed to pm these people)

The top 3 will receive 1 free title of their choice from our store!


How much time do I have?

You have time until the 19th of October (it will expire at 23:59.59 of this day), that's a good almost 2 weeks :ok_hand:

Creative Reset - What changed?

by NxDs Sat Oct 06, 2018 11:31 pm

Yes, we're aware that some of you might not have been exactly happy about the sudden reset with no announcement and we're sorry about that.
But Creative is a special server with a special kind of people in it, announcing it too early would have meant a huge uproar of people protesting and making it die prematurely.

The reset was a necessity, being a 3 years old server it had several issues, the database with plots was corrupt and day after day it was just going to get worse with crashes, lag and data loss.

To overcome the frustration you might feel we decided to come up with some new features you might appreciate such as:
- Bigger plots, they're now 150x150 blocks
- 15 minutes of WorldEdit for each vote (stackable)
- Added /chestshop so you can set up chestshops for your banners and heads
- Added loads of new plot flags that you can use
- Added /p block, /p unblock and /p blocklist for a complete management of blocks disallowed from your plot (for example you can hold a lava bucket and do /p block so griefers won't be able to place it)
- Added /p inspect, so you will know who griefed or edited something
- Added /p generate, for a small fee you will regenerate your plot using one of the fancy preset plots that our builders made
- Added some minor fixes that would prevent people from creating laggy plots
- Added a fully working and hopefully bug-free pvp arena in a dedicated world (/pvp)
- And for last but not least a new fancy spawn

In the next few day we will try to add some more planned features such as /banner to have an easy way to craft banners and we'll start a Build Battle to claim the plots next to the spawn :ok_hand:

I'll leave you here with the list of new flags that you can use:
- gamemode
- time
- weather
- music
- disable-physics
- grass-grow
- ice-melt
- mycel-grow
- snow-melt
- vine-grow
- item-drop
- drop-protection
- pve
- pvp
- explosion
- player-interact
- redstone
- liquid-flow
- fire-spread

AcidIsland - Reset and OP Features

by NxDs Wed Sep 26, 2018 12:08 pm

It took us just 2 years to finally decide to reset again Acid :ok_hand:

Since we noticed it's not exactly the most popular gamemode among the players we wanted to make it a bit more interesting and we will be introducing some features from OP servers and some extra unique stuff such as:

- Custom Enchants (+ new custom enchants that aren't on any other server yet)
- OP Vanilla Enchants (up to level X)
- Custom Mob Drops (more than OPSkyblock's ones :o )
- Economy based on your suggestions
- Quests
- /fly upon reaching 100k Island level
- Stacked and Item Spawners
- Bigger Islands
- Miner crate (higher chances compared to other servers) and OP crate

The reset will be this Friday 28 September 2018.

You have 24 hours starting from now to place all the blocks you can to get in top 5 islands and get Store Coupons!
After the 24 hours, we will be handing out free OP PvP gear as always until the reset

Stay tuned and look for updates and exclusive announcements on our Discord server: https://discord.gg/bhZKakC
