You've probably already heard some chatter about this, but the EULA is changing, and after seeing most of our players are more interested in fun causal servers, compared to competitive servers, we've decided to embrace this. We already started working on and are finishing up store and server updates to get ExtremeCraft fully EULA compliant. We know some players prefer competitive servers but as you saw over the past year, this never really worked out well for ExtremeCraft.

What does that mean?

As of now, all HallOfFame seasons have finished, except on Factions servers. With exception of Factions servers, we will be changing all ExtremeCraft servers into non-competitive servers, as such most of the perks being sold on those game modes are already compliant with the new EULA. Instead of focusing on making our servers competitive, we will be focusing on catching up on updates, yes 1.17 is coming to ExtremeCraft real soon, with new blocks, new mobs, new features, and more.

What about Factions and OpFactions?

We're not planning on changing our global ranks but they will be removed from the store and replaced with new ranks and perks. Furthermore, we will not be adding back any ranks or perks on Factions and OpFactions servers, that would provide players with unfair advantages. For now Factions and OpFactions will be the only competitive servers left on ExtremeCraft.

Bans? Unbans? Unban all?

Following the new EULA, we also proceeded to remove Unbans from our store. We've recently revised our rules and updated our AI handling ban appeals so that ban appeals won't be auto-closed anymore if you had too many offenses. We're NOT doing "unban all", blindly unbanning all players left and right as we've tried that in the past and it didn't really work out, but you are welcomed to submit a ban appeal if you're banned.

HallOfFame changes

With all those changes in mind, HallOfFame rewards are now BiWeekly and only on Factions and OpFactions servers.

OpFactions reset 2021!

Posted by Dieu1 week ago
As promised everything from faster SandBots, Wall Generators to Outposts was added with this OpFactions reset. But there's more, we also added a whole new system for Custom Enchants, improved Custom Enchant NPCs and the way items are handled on Anvils.

We've also updated /f topinfo and /od durabilities, important thing to keep in mind is that we're going to remove Diamond Blocks and Emerald Blocks from /od durabilities with the next restart, but they will still count for FTOP points.

Hopper limit was raised from 40 to 60, which also affects double, triple, and quadruple limits. Instead of adding TNTBankTool kit we've decided to add it to /shop. Player power was increased from 50 to 60 which should help with outposts, tho outposts will only start to spawn after the grace period is over. Following this, we also updated crates, vote rewards, and OpFactions server economy.

As part of Store updates, in-game money, McMMO credits, and IronGolem spawners were removed, vouchers from HallOfFame season are now only valid for 7 days. However this is just a start, we will be adding new stuff shortly.
It's been a while and if you have noticed yet, OpFactions server is being reset this Friday (4th)! That being said we already pushed some updates to OpFactions including new Custom Enchants. Unfortunately, all old Custom Enchants are now disabled, but you're welcome to test out and give feedback on new Custom Enchants. You can get new enchants at /warp enchanter via NPC and to make things even easier we added XP Bottles to in-game shop (super cheap only $1).

Some of the new things coming to OpFactions with the next reset include:
- TNTTool, you can get with /kit tnttool
- Fixed /f unclaim all bugs, also only Faction leader can now do /f unclaim all
- Updated Faction MOTD, fixed color bugs
- Added new commands to manage Faction Access /f access clear|clearallPlayerclearallFaction
- Fixed /f who/show commands
- Added /f rel check command
- Territory permission was replaced with two different permissions (Claim and Unclaim)
- Updated /f gui to include new features
- Fixed Door top desync bugs
- Added /f chunklist (see list of chunks claimed by your Faction)
- Added new TPA permission
- /f tntfill and /f buytntfill commands were remove (replaced with nearby versions of those commands)
- You can now also use inventory (default) or tntbank parameter on /f tntfill
- Added Ally limit (1) and Truce limit (3)
- Fixed /f home and /f warp commands (tp delay, wrong tp location, fixed tping under bedrock)
- Improved ExtremeCreepers
- Withers were disabled
- Replaced FixAll villager with FixHand villager (at /warp shop)
- You can now only join OpFactions with Minecraft 1.8 and up to 1.12.2

AcidIsland

Hall Of Fame season running on AcidIsland server just ended, mainly because players were just leveraging it to farm free vouchers while there were not actually that many players playing AcidIsland. At this point, we're unable to confirm when the next AcidIsland server reset will come or if Hall Of Fame will still be a thing on AcidIsland - this mainly depends on the amount of players who are interested in actually playing AcidIsland server.

Store and Vouchers

We're planning to remove some P2W items from the store and changing Hall Of Fame Vouchers a bit within the next few days, to prevent players from hijacking whole HOF seasons making it difficult if not impossible for others to play.

Updates for May

Posted by NxDs3 weeks ago
Sorry for the lack of updates and reset lately, it's been a busy period but don't worry we have several things planned for the coming weeks sunglasses
Consider this post just something to show you that we're not dead we're just working on several things

New Rank Colors

We are working on a load of changes and updates, among others we would also like to change the colors of our donor ranks so that each rank could have its own unique color, for this we would like your opinion so vote here which color combination you like the most thumbsup https://www.extremecraft.net/polls/

Chat Games

This one has been requested since quite a bit of time, you will start seeing chat games now every hour or so, the classics "Unscramble the word", "Math question" and "Type the following" (we're open to suggestions for more games you'd like to see)
There's also a global leaderboard that you can see with /chatgames top

Image

Video Editor Applications

We are looking for Video Editors! You can apply for the position here

New PvP Knockback

This is also something a lot of you have been suggesting since a while, we now changed the knockback values on all the gamemodes based on your valuable feedback provided on /go pvp, the changes are effective everywhere starting from now

1.17 Plans

Yes, 1.17 when. We are waiting for 1.17 Minecraft (set to release around mid year), after that it will be a couple of weeks wait time for the server version to be released and once that's out we'll try to reset and update SurvivalPlus to that
And maybe some other gamemodes will receive the update as well. We'll see, wink wink.

Anvil Color Preview

Really minor quality of life update but, if you have a rank that lets you, when you try to color items in anvil you will see the live preview of what the name will be instead of seeing the ugly & everywhere

Rules Less Strict

We're trying to correct our aim and improve our rules and punishments, for this reason we slightly changed the punishments issued in some cases and we will also be less strict when it comes to handling ban appeals.

Party Limits

We're trying to address the issue of big parties in PvP without also affecting everyone else so from now on friendly fire will be automatically toggled on when there are 30 or more party members online

Did you know...?

This section is for the forgotten features that we never announced that I come across and that I feel deserve their own mention
  • You can use certain emojis in game just like you do on Discord
    Try one of these in chat :shrug:, :dog:, :cat:, :angry:, :lenny:, :tableflip:, :tableunflip:, :bear:, :kiss:, :dance:, :cry: and :hehe:
  • The Karma system You can check yours and other player's karma with /karma, that's based on how good you are on the server and on how many offences you break, it may be useful to figure out if you want to trust someone when doing a trade or before accepting a tp request thinking_face


Tomorrow there will be a surprise for all the Creative players... Not 1.17, not yet sorry.
