Over the past few weeks, ExtremeCraft has undergone a series of updates, bug fixes, and enhancements to elevate your gaming experience.

Let's start with a significant change – the renaming of HallOfFame Weeks to Rounds. Each round now spans two weeks, offering a fairer competition window. The /halloffame command has been revamped to provide accurate information about the current HallOfFame season and round. As Towny Rounds come to a close in a few hours, rest assured that vouchers will be automatically distributed.

Automated announcements have been implemented to acknowledge and celebrate players who receive vouchers for their voting efforts.

In the Towny realm, Fly is now activated automatically, and we've removed the fly cooldown to prevent potential exploits. To enhance chat readability, we've excluded the nation name from the chat prefix. Additionally, Town Chat and Nation Chat functionalities have been fixed.

For Skyblock enthusiasts, numerous internal fixes and updates have been applied to ensure seamless gameplay.

SlimeFun has received multiple updates addressing issues related to disappearing and bugging items.

Our AntiCheat system has undergone refinements to address and fix some false positives. If any issues persist, please don't hesitate to contact us with clear examples of how to replicate them.

Due to potential abuse, the number of affected spawners has been removed from SpawnerExtractors.

A 2% fee has been introduced for the /withdraw command to prevent abuse, trolling, and spamming.

Crates have been fine-tuned to fix chance calculation issues where the GUI would display 0% for all items.

Globally, we've removed or fixed many unused features and code, including addressing Skull loading issues.

On the website front, we've overhauled and fixed numerous issues, resulting in faster loading times and an overall more user-friendly experience.

 

Greetings, dedicated community members! As part of our ongoing appreciation for your active participation, we are thrilled to announce the top voters for the month of December 2023. Each month, we randomly select 10 players who have demonstrated unwavering commitment by accumulating a minimum of 200 votes. Without further ado, let's celebrate and acknowledge the outstanding contributors who have been rewarded with vouchers:

Let the votes keep rolling in! Happy voting!

Upcoming Changes and updates!

Posted by Dieu1 month ago

Servers with GriefPrevention:

Enhanced Control with GPFlags

We're thrilled to introduce GPFlags, a dynamic extension of GriefPrevention that puts the power in the hands of our players. With GPFlags, you now have the ability to set personalized flags within your claims. At this stage, we're eagerly welcoming ideas on which flags should be enabled. Our primary goal is to provide players with enhanced flexibility without compromising the integrity of their claims. Your input is crucial, as we strive to create a secure environment while offering a plethora of options.

Additionally, we've bid farewell to /transferclaim and ushered in a more intuitive system. The retired command has been replaced with /claim transfer [player] [optionalCost] and /claim accept [player], requiring confirmation from both parties. This not only streamlines the process but also introduces the possibility for players to sell their claims.

In terms of bug fixes, we're pleased to announce that Claim Fees are now processing as previously outlined. Furthermore, GriefPrevention's handling of Explosions has been fixed.

Skyblock

Our commitment to improving your Skyblock experience continues with these notable updates:

  • Island Fly has undergone enhancements to ensure it no longer disables Fly upon joining.

  • Fresh Island Flags have been added for ClearMobs, Upgrade, Inspect, and Lock commands, granting players even more control over their islands.

Towny Server

Experience a new level of convenience and freedom on our Towny Server with these exciting additions:

  • TownyFlight is set to debut with the upcoming restart, allowing players to utilize /tfly for an enriched town experience. Please note that PVP will automatically disable fly mode, ensuring a balanced gameplay environment.

  • Embrace the convenience of new Towny menus accessible via /town menu, facilitating smoother interactions with the Towny plugin.

Other Updates

In our continuous efforts to enhance your overall gameplay, we've reintroduced the /sit command, and that's not all. Explore new possibilities with /lay, /crawl, and more!

We're also eager to hear your ideas and suggestions concerning Crates. While your creativity is encouraged, please keep in mind that a balanced approach is key. Loading crates with an excess of Spawners may have unintended consequences, such as devaluation and potential server lag. We value your constructive suggestions to help us shape a vibrant and balanced gaming experience for all. Your feedback is crucial as we strive to make ExtremeCraft even more enjoyable!

Numerous bug fixes have been implemented across various aspects of the system, addressing reported issues from our vigilant player community.

The Claim Fees system has reached its finalization stage. In the upcoming server restart, players who have claimed more than 250k blocks will face the imposition of daily claim fees. Failure to meet these fees will lead to the expiration of all their claims, underlining the importance of managing land resources effectively.

A noteworthy addition to our Towny server is the introduction of the Hall of Fame. This exciting feature will commence this Friday, accompanied by a one-week grace period. Players are encouraged to strive for greatness within the Towny realm, with the Hall of Fame recognizing their achievements and contributions.

Skyblock enthusiasts will be delighted to hear about the incorporation of Challenges into the server. Players can now engage in a variety of challenges using the convenient /is challenges command. This addition aims to provide a fresh and dynamic dimension to the Skyblock gameplay experience, encouraging players to test their skills and creativity.

Our commitment to staying current extends to the Slimefun addons, which have been diligently updated. Furthermore, in response to player feedback and balancing considerations, we have made the decision to disable the LiteXpansion nerf. This adjustment is designed to enhance the overall experience and balance of the server.

Addressing concerns within the community, we are pleased to announce the successful resolution of the Drop Party issue. Players can now enjoy a seamless and glitch-free experience during these exciting events.

However, with the positive changes come challenges. The recent Minecraft 1.20.4 update has altered the way in-game items are handled. Consequently, some old items no longer stack, though they remain usable. Unfortunately, this change will impact player shops, requiring those using old items to undergo a reconstruction process. We understand the inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience as we adapt to these Minecraft updates.

In addition to the exciting enhancements and adjustments, we are pleased to inform our community that issues pertaining to Pets have been successfully resolved across all servers. Players can now enjoy a seamless and trouble-free experience with their beloved companions.

Lastly, we've made significant improvements to the Void Auctions system. We've revamped the functionality, enhancing notifications for a more seamless experience. Additionally, in response to user feedback and to promote a more dynamic auction environment, we've reduced the auction duration limit from 15 to 10 minutes.

Over the last two days, we encountered connectivity problems, resulting in player disconnections, largely due to the update of ExtremeCraft servers from 1.20.2 to 1.20.4. While the updates didn't go as smoothly as planned, we've addressed most issues, and the situation is improving.

To prevent future occurrences, we're establishing a new testing server.

In the upcoming restart, an update to the anti-cheat system is scheduled, aiming to further reduce false positives. This update is designed to further refine the system, reducing the occurrence of false positives and ensuring a more secure and fair gameplay experience.

Despite our efforts, we acknowledge that some Pets and Emotes are still encountering issues. Please know that our dedicated team is actively working on resolving these problems and restoring full functionality.

As we bid farewell to the challenges of the past, we usher in a new year filled with promise and excitement. Wishing you a joyous and prosperous Happy New Year!

This marks the first-ever release of the Towny Server on ExtremeCraft. As pioneers on this blocky frontier, there might be a few bugs and quirks along the way. Fear not! We're working tirelessly to address any issues swiftly.

Share your suggestions and ideas. Help us shape the future of new Towny Server and make this adventure truly epic!

Also anticipate the following updates in the next restart:

  • Slimefun Server: Brace yourself for a boost in Bump Appraisals, reverting them to their original values!

  • Skyblock Server: The all-new Hall of Fame has just kicked off—get ready to make your mark!

  • SpawnerExtractors: Say goodbye to mobs that don't drop loot (or only do so when player-killed). We've fine-tuned the "Item Configurator" accordingly and enhanced drop rates!

  • ChestHopper: Experience smoother item pickup for piston farms, specifically Bamboo and Sugarcane.

  • Quests: Bid farewell to old and glitchy quests as they are now swiftly replaced with fresh, fully functional quests.

  • Claim Fees: We're diligently working on balancing these fees. While it's a work in progress, it should provide players with a preliminary understanding of what to expect. Stay tuned for more updates!

Introducing SpawnerExtractors

Posted by Dieu2 months ago

ExtremeCraft has just rolled out an exciting new feature—meet the SpawnerExtractor.

SpawnerExtractors

Curious about how it operates?

In a manner similar to ChestHoppers, the SpawnerExtractor is tailored for collecting items from farms. However, its unique focus lies in Spawners. Previously, players setting up farms using Spawners encountered challenges like crafting grinders, ensuring swift mob elimination, and navigating various intricacies.

Enter the SpawnerExtractor, solving these hurdles and minimizing lag caused by spawned mobs. Instead of the conventional spawn-and-kill process, SpawnerExtractors intercept every Spawner's attempt to spawn a mob, instantly eliminating it, and gathering drops on your behalf.

These Extractors exclusively capture spawns from Spawners within the same chunk and offer options to selectively capture specific mob types. Moreover, mob drops are managed as specified in the SpawnerExtractor's "Item Configuration." Prepare for a smoother, more efficient farming experience with SpawnerExtractors on ExtremeCraft!

We're reintroducing monthly vouchers for top voters, but this time, there's a new system in place. In the past, some players found ways to exploit the voting system, hindering others from receiving vouchers. To tackle this, we've instituted a fresh approach: to qualify for a monthly voucher, players need a minimum of 200 votes within the past 30 days. Out of those who meet this requirement, 10 lucky players will be randomly chosen to receive vouchers on the 1st of each month.

Updates in Skyblock:

  • Significant changes have taken place since the reset. Here's a swift rundown:
  • Access to /is fly now requires an island level of 1000.
  • Island level 250 grants access to /is warp.
  • To access the Nether, an island level of 200 is required.
  • We've enabled a new setting allowing players to utilize the "break spawner" flag.
  • Introducing a new Resource Crate and adjusted shop prices.
  • Numerous bug fixes have been implemented.

SlimeFun Updates:

  • Automatically removing disabled items that were glitched or crafted before their disablement.
  • Unfortunately, a few items causing crashes had to be disabled, but we've managed to fix some issues.
  • Seeking feedback on "Dimensional Homes."

Global Improvements:

  • The ongoing issue with slow mob spawning has been mostly resolved.
  • Addressing Pets bugging out (pending restart).
  • The team has begun work on the new Hall of Fame and Claim Fees. Note: Claim fees are currently for informational purposes only to provide players with an idea of what to expect. We'll release a detailed announcement once claim fees are officially launched.

Exciting news – our Skyblock server has undergone a recent reset, and we're thrilled to introduce an all-new Skyblock experience based on Minecraft 1.20.

This revamped Skyblock server comes with a plethora of new biomes and generators, adding an extra layer of challenge and exploration. However, unlocking these features requires a sufficiently high island level. To enhance your gameplay, we've introduced the /is fly command, accessible at an island level of 1000, and Island Warps, which become available at an island level of 250.

As you dive into the new Skyblock adventure, you can expect all the familiar goodies, including VoidAuctions, Quests, Events, and more. But that's not all – we're reintroducing Is Top with a 2-week grace period. Stay tuned for more details on that in the coming days!

It's worth noting that some commands have evolved since version 1.8. For instance, /is invite is now /is team invite, and there are more changes you can explore using the /is help command along with tab complete.

And here's the cherry on top: new pet types are now available in the store!

Party System Update

Posted by Dieu2 months ago

In response to the valuable feedback and suggestions we've received regarding parties on ExtremeCraft, we've carefully considered the concerns raised by our community.

To address the current dynamics, we are modifying the friendly-fire limit from 55 online members to 35 online members per party. Additionally, we are reintroducing party upgrades to the store, offering players more options to enhance their party experience.

We acknowledge that not everyone may be entirely satisfied with these adjustments, but we believe they are necessary steps to maintain a balanced environment for parties and PVP. We remain open to further suggestions from our community. It's important to note that merely adjusting the friendly-fire limit without considering broader implications may not provide a comprehensive solution. For instance, a limit of 55 would mean that one-third of online players could potentially be in the same party, given that 1.20 servers have a limit of 150 players.

Constructive suggestions should not only focus on changing the limit but also propose effective ways for other individuals or parties to engage with a party comprising 70 players online.

Our goal at ExtremeCraft is to avoid scenarios where a single party dominates the entire server, as this would undermine the essence of having diverse parties on ExtremeCraft.
