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 Dieu3 months 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.

Image

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 months 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.

Factions Reset April 2021

OpFactions reset 2021

Posted by Dieu7 months ago
OpFactions reset 2021

Finally... we did it! It took a bit longer than initially planned, but we wanted to actually fix all the issues with cannons (and lag) that were present on ExtremeCraft for too long. We're also happy to finally announce TNT cannons should now behave as expected on Factions, OpFactions and Cannoning.

We're also planning on adding new features to Cannoning server that should help with testing and debugging cannons, for example, an option to upload schem files, etc.

With all the bugfixes and changes, we also had to change Obsidian Destroyer (check out /od durabilities) and update F TOP (/f topinfo). Did I mention there's /tnttoggle command too now?

There are still some minor bugfixes we're working on, mostly cosmetics and we're open to ideas and suggestions on how we should implement SandBot.
This concludes one of the biggest updates we've ever worked on for this server weary
Quick tl;dr for those who won't bother reading Minigames reset and New BedWars release tomorrow 31st January

For all my other 2 readers who care about me here's what's changed.

Reworked Gadgets/Upgrades

This time around we wanted to simplify things, we removed lot of gadgets and upgrades that nobody liked or that were just too complicated, the ones who stayed got several balance and bug fixes as well.

No more P2W

BedWars has always been one of our least p2w servers and starting from this update it will go full free2win, with this we will also replace the coupons at the end of the seasons with unique cosmetics that you get to keep forever.
This is a new direction we intend to take for all the minigames we will replace with our own in the future, prioritizing a fair game experience for everyone.

New Shop

The shop NPC has been chopped in half and you now have 2 of them.

Shop

We also removed bricks, nobody liked bricks. All the prices are also balanced, items in shop make sense and everything is nice.

Reworked Maps

PvP was the focus this time around and our builders (specially gablalon tada) worked hard to make our maps more enjoyable aiming for a better game experience.
They're now more organized, moderately sized and less dispersive

Map

Map


All Time Leaderboard

You will now be able to see who's the best player of all time. Ever. You know the one that you will never reach so you will feel bad. The old season leaderboard will also be available of course.

Leaderboards


More Cosmetics

A load of new cosmetics were added: win effects, bed break effects, lobby gadgets/cosmetics and other cool stuff
The old season leaderboard will also be available of course.

New XP/Level system

One of the highlights of this update will be the new level system: you will earn XP by playing and doing quests, the more time you play and win and the more XP you will get.
Every 1,000 XP you will rankup, don't miss out the prestige ranks that you unlock after a certain amount of levels.

Level System


Better Block Traps

We wanted to give yet another chance to block traps, they are now more discrete when placed and can be placed anywhere in the map.

Better Generators

Generators are now less annoying and they will hide when enemies are nearby so that PvP will be possible. The item spawn rates are also improved and are more in line with shop prices, multiple players can also afk there and everyone will receive the items directly in the inventory so no more stealing tada

New Spawn

With such a big update it couldn't miss a brand new spawn as well, thanks to our builders Chawky_, Gablalon and Minhmeow3.

Spawn


Much More

The list of changes is A LOT longer and if you are still reading this chances are you already followed the development in the #dev-live-updates channel in our Discord anyway shrug

Discontinuing EggWars

This might be sad news for some of you who were hoping to see a revamp soon after but after some thought we decided to remove our EggWars server in favor of BedWars and the new update that we hope will still please as many people as possible, just give it a chance before judging and if you still don't like it we can still be friends.

We will instead focus on new gamemodes such as Spleef, Death/TNT run, Parkour and several other games we have planned and shortlisted since quite a while.

Discord Bot - Updates

Posted by NxDs8 months ago

We reworked almost from scratch one of the oldest projects we have, our beloved Discord bot robot_face
Among several bug fixes, and brand new bugs introduced, we also added a couple of extra features.

Also all your stats are gone so deal with it.

Automated events

The bot will now automatically detect when someone guesses the number in #guess-the-number chat and the reward will be handed out way quicker.
This is also true for the #meme submissions, the monthly winners will be announced as soon as the month ends.

Guess the number channel


[NitroBooster] Title

After countless requests Nitro Boosters will now receive the [NitroBooster] title in game as long as they keep boosting, as soon as the boost runs out they'll lose the title as well.

Nitro Booster Title


Better rank comparison

Our rank comparison page has improved and looks a bit cleaner with tabs.
It also includes a tab dedicated to Discord and what you get from each rank and from Nitro Boosting

As side unrelated note we also improved the readability of the light theme for the website.

Various Changes

There were a lot of changes, here are the ones that affect players directly:
  • Added VoteParty notifications, whenever a voteparty is about to start in a server you can get notified
  • Usernames work as mentions in commands. You won't have to bother tagging people when issuing a command, for example /spank holliedce will work just fine
  • New #numbersgame similar to our #wordsgame it works with number sequences
  • Replaced unfunny /yomomma with generic /joke. Jokes are a little bit more funny now.
  • Commands like /avatar and /stats don't require you to tag yourself anymore in order to get your own data
  • /stats top will now have 3 leaderboards: chats, mentions and commands
  • At 60 offences you get banned tada
  • /remindme now supports removing reminders
  • /relations now has more subcommands to manage your relations
  • You can use /offe to see your own offences
  • Banned/unverified members can't talk anymore in #nitroboosters bypassing the bans
  • Fixed #role channel, you can now react to receive roles again
  • More consistent permissions such as Nexus can now post images anywhere and not just in specific chats
  • Added a couple extra rp commands
  • /trends is now slightly less spammy
  • Long /me messages will go in new line instead of becoming unreadably small
  • /calc is now more accurate
  • Bot answers were refreshed and changed almost entirely

The amount of changes is way longer than this but sadly for you they were more aimed to ease the Discord/Bot management for us and to update a now outdated codebase, the bot was made way back in 2016 and along the years Discord changed a lot.

There may still be bugs, if you happen to find one please report it here: https://www.extremecraft.net/tickets/new/5/

That's about it, we're now done with major changes regarding Discord and we will now focus on improving our servers, mainly minigames, and releasing new stuff and resetting stuff ok_hand
