It's happening again!

This was probably long overdue but we're happy to announce we've updated anti-cheat on all 1.17 servers to a more appropriate "solution" since there were more and more players using and abusing all kinds of mods recently. We already did some testing but if there are any false positives you should report them, so we can fix them :)

Wings and Trails are being added back to 1.17 servers, Trails should already be there for Wings we still have to push some updates (some wings are not working right now, this will be fixed with the next restart).

We've also addressed issues with Pets, which should now be compatible with clients below 1.17 (yes, ridding and flying were fixed).

SkyGrid reset

Posted by Dieu2 years ago

Looks like it's that time of the year again. SkyGrid reset time! It's been awhile since last SkyGrid reset but now it's back, with new spawn, new PVP arenas, new Economy, everything is new? :0

ok... maybe not THAT map...

SkyGrid world generator was updated to 1.17 so now you can find 1.17 spawners, blocks, chests with new items and everything else you would expect on 1.17 Skygrid server. You can now also use global Tokens on SkyGrid server.

As far as economy goes, we're still open for suggestions on which items should be added, but keep in mind adding everything to the server shop would kill player shops and we don't want to do that do we?

Skygrid server will be reset on Friday, January 14th. With that Skygrid server will be running on Minecraft 1.17, which means you will only be able to connect with Minecraft 1.9 or higher (Minecraft 1.17 is recommended for now). We're of course also updating the world generator:

Image

There will also be a new Nether and End world. Yes, chests, yes, spawners, etc... yes, YES!! Put that X-Ray away unless you're using it to cut trees.

[subtitle]BuildBattle[/subtitle]

Unfortunately, most of the BuildBattle plots submitted this month were not eligible, however, we had at least one good submission:

1st place - cattto (/p v 216;226)

Everyone else... well, better luck next time.

RPG Server reset!

Posted by Dieu2 years ago
It's been a while since the last RPG reset, but it finally happened! RPG was just reset and updated to 1.17, we've also updated SlimeFun and everything that goes with that (1.17 mcMMO, 1.17 GriefPrevention, ...).



Since RPG server is now running Minecraft 1.17 you can only connect with Minecraft 1.9 or higher, we recommend Minecraft 1.17.1.

What about 1.18 update? 1.18 update will likely happen as an upgrade (not reset) once the 1.18 server is stable enough.

OpSkyblock reset!

Posted by Dieu2 years ago
OpSkyblock 1.17 is finally here. You need Minecraft 1.9 or higher to join the new OpSkyblock server (you can't join with 1.8 clients anymore, Minecraft 1.17 is recommended).

Opskyblock reset!

Aside from new crates, a new economy and a lot of 1.17 stuff here a list of most notable changes:
- Custom islands, for all worlds (overworld, nether and end)
- Island Bank
- Biome selector
- The ability to summon mobs with magic!
- Challenges are back :)
- New island control panel and settings (also check me out, likes, visit and promote features)
- We've of course kept Island Fly (now /is fly)
- New Magic Cobblestone generators
- Players can grow trees faster by twerking!
A critical security Exploit has been discovered in the multiplayer version of Minecraft, which includes servers and clients running versions of Minecraft as far back as 1.7.

Mojang has not officially provided any specifics about the exploit but advises players not to play any versions before Minecraft 1.17 for the time being. If you're using vanilla launcher restarting the game's launcher should download a fix for the vulnerability, fixing Minecraft versions 1.12 through 1.18. Versions prior to Minecraft 1.12 may still be vulnerable. The exploit is related to Log4j, before version 2.15, which can be found in the Minecraft client and server.

Any Minecraft server running a vulnerable version of Log4j is susceptible to having an attacker remotely run the downloaded code on a user's computer, which may allow the attacker to gain access to the device. The vulnerability lies in Log4j which allows connections to be made to arbitrary URLs, which may then download malicious code to a user's computer.

ExtremeCraft already patched the issue, but you should be sure you're running Minecraft 1.17 or higher, update your Launcher, or both.

As a temporary workaround before the release of 1.18.1, Mojang advises disabling the lookup feature of Log4j using a JAR argument when starting the game (enabled by default when you update your Launcher): -Dlog4j2.formatMsgNoLookups=true
We're sorry for the delay, but at last, here is the list of BuildBattle Winners. We were planning on updating Creative to 1.17 and were unsure how things will play out... but now, now creative is running on 1.17.1 and all your plots and builds are still there!

This of course means you now need Minecraft 1.9 or higher to join creative and 1.17 or higher if you want to see all new blocks and mobs.

1st place - TinTinCan (/p v -144;223)

Image


2nd place - Snow3y (/p v 5;83)

3rd place - Flxmy_ (/p v -222;-28)

OpSurvival Server reset

Posted by Dieu2 years ago
As some of you probably noticed, we're currently testing Minecraft 1.17.1 on OpSurvival server. Unfortunately due to the number of plugins that had to be updated this took a bit longer than anticipated. But now we're happy to announce you can preview 1.17.1 in its full glory on our OpSurvival server, be sure to report any possible issues and bugs.

As of now, you can connect to OpSurvival with Minecraft 1.9 or higher, tho it's recommended to use Minecraft 1.17 or 1.17.1. Also please note that the current OpSurvival server is still prerelease, it will be reset and released on 22nd October.

Most of the plugins and features were already updated to 1.17.1, but we're still working on things like Custom Enchants that will be added later on.

With OpSurvival reset, we will be bringing back the vanilla world generator, which means OpSurvival world will contain Caves, Mineshafts, Dungeons, etc. Sadly this also means we're going to merge SurvivalPlus and OpSurvival into one server, the current state of SurvivalPlus is rather bad and it's impossible to keep it updated and running as some of you already noticed.

Hardcore Factions release

Posted by Dieu2 years ago
It finally happened, the Hardcore Factions server is now open!

We're sorry about all the delays and issues, but unfortunately, it took longer than anticipated.

With that out of the way, I would like to point out again that the new Hardcore Factions server is and will stay EULA compliant. Meaning you won't have any in-game advantages whenever you're playing with Member or Nexus rank. As result some of the permissions for Member rank were updated on the Hardcore Factions server (extra homes, silk spawners, ...), we understand this might be a bit different from Factions servers we had before but there really is no other way.

As you can imagine you also can't buy crates keys, in-game money, boss items from the store, instead you can now get them by voting, by winning KOTH events, or simply by looting Envoys.

Outposts and most of the recently added custom features are there, grace period as usual and we're still working on some updates and bug fixes.

Since this was a major group/permissions update, bug reports, as well as suggestions, are welcomed! With suggestions, just keep in mind ranks can not give any kinds of advantages, unless we give it to everyone (Member rank).

Anarchy, Factions, Ranks...

Posted by Dieu2 years ago
It's happening! As most of you probably already noticed, HallOfFame season ended on OpFactions and with that, we're removing Factions and OpFactions servers from ExtremeCraft.

But I wanna play Factions! We've got you covered, hopefully. Next Friday (6th) we will be releasing a new Factions server. Now since Factions gamemode is competitive by definition and we want to keep the server EULA compliant, the new Factions server won't be PayToWin. Global ranks will not give players any advantages and it will be impossible to buy spawners, keys, or anything like that. Unfortunately, that's the only way to keep the Factions server alive and part of ExtremeCraft.

We're also bringing back Global ranks, which of course won't give any advantages on competitive servers (say new Factions server for example). All those changes to Global ranks required a lot of changes and updates, if there are any bugs please let us know. While we're at it we've also decided to update the Anarchy server (not to 1.17 tho that's coming soon too), but we're bringing the Anarchy server closer to what it "should" be, which means the removal of some perks that were part of global ranks and removal of Lockette plugin.

Players who already bought per server ranks, had their ranks automatically upgraded into global ranks. Also, we're happy to announce connectivity issues should now be fixed.
Following up on the recent changes with EULA and Global ranks, we've decided to end the current HallOfFame season on OpFactions server a bit sooner than usual, which means the current week is the last week of this season.

With all the changes related to ranks, gameplay and more it doesn't make sense to reset OpFactions and Factions anymore, and even if we do it's likely not going to be very enjoyable to play. Instead, we've decided to retire both Factions and OpFactions servers.

Now, since it seems like there are still quite a few players interested in playing Factions we will be releasing a new server, Hardcore Factions. Since ExtremeCraft was removed from the blacklist and we're now strictly following the new EULA, Hardcore Factions will still be a competitive gamemode but without any Pay2Win perks.

With that, we're also bringing back global ranks. Players who already bought per server ranks will have those ranks automatically upgraded into Global ranks, that being said Hardcore Factions will be the only competitive server in our network at least for time being, which means Global ranks will give players no advantages on Hardcore Factions (only things like cosmetics and titles).

We understand this might be kinda unexpected to some players but unfortunately it's the only way to move forward.

[subtitle]OpSurvival Beta[/subtitle] We're currently testing our new OpSurvival!
There are many changes and additions so we decided to release a beta in /go testing for a week or so, feel free to join our Beta testing Discord to leave feedback and report issues! Discord Invite (you must be verified on our main Discord in order to participate)
Here's a quick list of things you can expect:
  • PvE Zone
  • Souls economy and SoulsShop
  • BattlePass and rewards
  • New Quests and Achievements
  • New Custom Enchantments
  • SkyGrid alternative world
  • Reduced P2W
  • Carepackages in PvP
  • New Spawn and new PvP
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. [subtitle]What does that mean?[/subtitle] 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. [subtitle]What about Factions and OpFactions?[/subtitle] 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. [subtitle]Bans? Unbans? Unban all?[/subtitle] 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. [subtitle]HallOfFame changes[/subtitle] With all those changes in mind, HallOfFame rewards are now BiWeekly and only on Factions and OpFactions servers.

OpFactions reset 2021!

Posted by Dieu2 years 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
[subtitle]AcidIsland[/subtitle] 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.
[subtitle]Store and Vouchers[/subtitle] 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 NxDs2 years ago

Consider this post just something to show you that we're not dead we're just working on several things [subtitle]New Rank Colors[/subtitle] 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/ [subtitle]Chat Games[/subtitle] 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)

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

Factions Reset April 2021

Posted by Dieu3 years ago

OpFactions reset 2021

Posted by Dieu3 years 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 NxDs3 years 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:

Factions reset

Posted by Dieu3 years ago
Factions server was just reset and we're happy to announce some of the changes that should balance out the Factions server.

Factions Reset

Fireballs can now be used even if enemies are nearby, with that spawner drop rate was reduced from 90% to 70% which should prevent or at least penalize Factions that would raid their own spawners. Furthermore, lava and water can't be placed and won't flow 2 blocks around and above spawners, and of course, spawners can't be mined if enemies are nearby.

Chunks touching WorldBorder can't be overclaimed anymore and as usual, there's 7 days grace period in which overclaiming and explosions are disabled. Currently, ChunkRippers can't be used, this will be fixed after the next restart.

Useless items were removed from Crates and Envoy rewards and there were also many much-needed bugfixes and performance improvements (updated anti-phase, patched minecart/boat exploit, fixed nether portal handling, back, and logout location expiration, ...).

Update: You can now use ChunkRippers! :)

Survival reset

Posted by Dieu3 years ago
Survival reset 2021

Kinda out of the blue but with all the players asking for it and all issues the old Survival server had, we finally did it! That being said there's a new spawn now, a new Economy that will actually allow players to set up player shops, warps, and such.

We also started rolling out claim plugin updates, players can now inspect block logs in their claims and more, you should really check out /claim command :) For all the players who used to use /claim to make claims, there's still /makeclaim command.

Video Editor - Contest

Posted by NxDs3 years ago
Here we are again, as part of the long lasting project of bringing back to life our YouTube channel we are now looking for new talented video editors that could help us with the task.
Everyone who collaborates with video making receives coupons that can be used in our store or could be sold to other players.

We figured the best way to do this is to set up another video editing competition.

What do I do?

You need to download this archive that contains all the instructions, the script and links to the videos you need to edit: download
You MUST submit only the video requested and specified in the archive, you can't submit other works of yours.

Where do I submit?

Once you edited your video you need to send your submission here: https://forms.gle/8SGRJnt8BubLNHyh7

How much time do I have?

You have 15 days from now, the contest will end Sunday 25th October.

What do I win?

As reward for winning the competition, if you decide to join the team, you will receive a starting coupon worth 50€

Good luck :thumbsup:

SkyBlock Reset

Posted by NxDs3 years ago
You asked for it, begged for months, although we had other plans for SkyBlock we gave up and decided to reset sooner than we hoped :person_shrugging:
Despite everything we still managed to bring you some changes and extra features to keep things interesting.

New Levelling System

We came up with a solution that would let you level up and at the same time give you enough space to build a nice looking island with no compromises.
You now have /is addlevels, this will open an inventory in which you drop in Coal, Iron, Gold, Emerald, Redstone, Lapis, Quartz or Diamond blocks and they will be consumed and turned into points.

There is no need to place them on your island anymore.
But don't worry the old system still works, if you place them on your island they will still count too towards the final island level.

New Spawn and PvP

Our builders provided us with a brand new Spawn and PvP arena (Credits: BlueberryDaFloor, PlotChat and DaddyOmer)

Spawn

Scoreboard

SkyBlock will now have a sidebar showing useful info. You can toggle it in /sett if you like.

Scoreboard

New Economy

We tried to come up with a new economy that hopefully will keep things a bit more interesting and aim for a less AFK-focused gameplay.

New Starter Islands

You can select from a wide range of new starter islands based on different biomes when you start playing now.

Starter Island

Reworked Lottery

The old lottery was obviously too difficult, nobody would ever win so we reworked it entirely, we got rid of numbers and combinations and a winner is guaranteed to be selected twice a day.

You buy tickets to participate, the more you buy the higher the chances to win.
This change is not strictly related to SkyBlock, it will come everywhere starting from tomorrow.

Lottery

Lobby Reset and Updates

Posted by NxDs3 years ago
It's been quite a while since the last time we touched our hub so here we are with some fancy changes, fixes and improvements.

Server NPCs and Spawn

Following the lead of some other servers we also added NPCs that will connect you to all our gamemodes, this will make it easier for newcomers to have an overview of what we offer without going through the selector menu. Also they just look cool. (Thanks to Ivri22 for the edits and improvements to the spawn area)

NPCs

Collectibles and Reset

We decided to rework the core of our lobby plugin and took the chance to start fresh and reset all the data of the past years so we could also apply some balance changes and fix some exploits that gave people infinite coins :thinking_face:

So collectibles got reset too, we also changed locations so don't worry about the old coords you saved somewhere as they won't help you.

Collectible

To spice up things a little bit this time the reward will be a little more fulfilling, in fact you will unlock the exclusive [LobbyExplorer] title that you will be able to use anywhere on the server, the title cannot be bought.


Lobby Explorer Title

Snake Trains

We found and fixed the Snake Trains that never made it to the public lobby, you can ride them and they'll show you the entire map.

Snake Train

Bug Fixes

Several bugs affecting the lobby since its release were also fixed as well as some false kicks from the anticheat.

BuildBattle, Pixel Art?

This is a side announcement regarding the latest BuildBattle, this time around the theme is Pixel Art.
We feel like we never gave enough love to all the players with skills in this building style and this will be an interesting change of pace.

Also we will be using the pixel arts in our next BedWars update that will be released in the next few days so your artworks might get officially featured on our server in some way :wink:

BedWars Maps and Stuff

Posted by NxDs3 years ago
We're giving BedWars some more love this time around and we're listening to your feedback on maps.
We will be adding new maps every month to keep things fresh and interesting :thumbs_up:

This month we added 4 new maps, revamped/improved 4 maps and removed other 4 maps.

New Maps

  • Turtles by gablalon
  • Fantoriya by TheEvilRoliya_
  • Rainbowsheaven by gablalon and Voidhugz
  • Zepplins by BentBecker and gablalon


rainbowsheaven

zepplins


Improved Maps

We went over some of the old maps and made them more PvP friendly:
  • Sakura
  • Pot
  • Ancienttemple
  • Icecream

Removed Maps

And here are the removed maps:
  • Tusk
  • Farmland
  • Easterwar
  • Egghunt

New Feedback System

We value your feedback so we added a new system that will occasionally ask you to rate maps between 1 and 5 whenever you end a game, this will help us tweak our buildings and figure out what you like and what you don't.


feedback

Minor Changes

  • Using the snowbuilder will not get you stuck in glass and get you kicked for phase hacks
  • New or updated maps will be prioritized over older maps and they'll be more common for the first week after release
  • Auto start on match end, when a game starts a new one will automatically start after 5 seconds (this can be toggle off)

SurvivalGames

This is a bit offtopic but we will soon start testing our new SurvivalGames that will not be pay-to-win and will share the core used in our BedWars
While we set it up if you have any suggestion for kits (not locked behind ranks) we should be adding or features in general feel free to post them here and we will provide to check them out as soon as possible before the actual release.

SurvivalPlus, Testing 1.16.1

Posted by NxDs3 years ago

Who would have thought we'd come this far, as far as trying our best to update everything and manage to get a 1.16.1 server up and running for you to test.
The server is SurvivalPlus and it will be the spiritual successor of our current Testing, which will be closed in the next few weeks to be used for other projects such as new minigames and gamemodes.

SurvivalPlus will then be our guinea pigs of servers, receiving the latest cutting edge updates and changes that we're too afraid to release on other servers, the first biggest update we'll be testing will be the new Minecraft 1.16.1

How to join?

Simply use /go survivalplus (or /go survivalp to save 3 whole letters) while being on a 1.16 or 1.16.1 or 1.16.2 client.
Attempting to join from an older client will NOT work and you will be redirected to the lobby.

Why?

We feel like it would be time to slowly transition to new versions and experiment with new features and content as we feel like 1.8 has been stagnating for way too long, this test is to see if the performances of the new version can keep up with our demands and gamemodes.

Bro, what about PvP?

We added a plugin that reverts PvP to 1.8 style (spam click = you're good), however the blocking mechanic is missing so you will get to try out the new shield mechanics.

Why is X command missing?

Updating plugins to versions past 1.12 is no joke, it requires time and effort and in the years we accumulated hundreds of thousands of lines of code that should be carefully checked and migrated.

For this reason we decided to simply migrate first the core plugins that are required for a good survival experience, if this test turns out to be positive we'll be definitely start migrating everything else.

Where is the shop?

As stated in the previous section updating some plugins requires more time than one might expect, our shop plugin is one of them and for this reason we'll run this test without a proper economy. On the bright side the vote crate looks like this Vote Crate

What about my kits?

For now there won't be any kit other than the starter kit, kit claim and kit basic. The true [Member] way.

Why is X not working?

If you find bugs please report them here and we'll fix them as soon as possible: https://www.extremecraft.net/tickets/new/5/

Prison Reset

Posted by NxDs3 years ago

And we're back.

For the fourth time we rework and reset prison, this time our main focus was to add enough features to keep things interesting but at the same time to not change too much the good old prison everyone likes.

Bombs

We added bombs to ease your mining sessions, also they just look cool. There are several types of bomb and you can unlock them through crates or Lucky Blocks

Lucky Blocks

Introducing: LuckyBlocks. They randomly spawn in mines, hit them and they'll reward you with cool stuff.

Other changes

Here's a comprehensive list of the other changes and features:

  • Easily achievable prestige
  • Removed free in favor of prestiging
  • You can now set up ChestShops in your cell (/ps)
  • Everyone gets a large cell at /cell
  • Lot of cell management commands (/cell help): trust, deny, kick, set visitor warp, etc
  • Same mines but bigger. (between 80k and 400k blocks)
  • New /pvp arena
  • Added quests
  • Improved crate rewards (community feedback)
  • Revamped /prestige menu with new prestige perks
  • Top miners leaderboard behind you at /spawn
  • Added /mine top and improved /mine stats

For more info please check /warp info and check out our reset showcase video: Prison reset


We have a load of planned updates in general for the near future that you'll like.

YouTube Managers

Posted by NxDs3 years ago

I am once again asking for your support.

We're currently looking for capable people willing to manage our official YouTube channel in order to bring it back to life and actually start providing content for the community.

What is this role for?

As YouTube manager you'll have some simple but important tasks:
  • Plan the kind of videos/series of videos
  • Plan when they should be published
  • Instruct our content creators on what to do
  • Review the videos
  • Upload the videos (optional if your connection is too slow)

You basically come up with ideas, instruct people to do them and then review the result.

Requirements?

There's no requirement other than having good ideas and a somewhat good eye to figure out if a video looks good or not.

You're not required to know how to edit, to have a good PC, to be able to record or anything like that, as long as you can plan and watch videos you're good to go.
Although all of this is not required you're clearly allowed to edit/record if you have the chance and feel like it.

How to apply?

The submissions are closed! Thanks to everyone who showed interest, we'll make sure to pick a good candidate in short times.
If you're interested then feel free to submit an application in which you "showcase" some ideas for videos and/or series of videos that you'd like to push.



If the sense of pride and accomplishment wouldn't suffice to convince you to apply we're handing out coupons for each video that gets published, you can then use them yourself, give them to your friends or sell them for real money :shrug:
Or sell them to your friends that also works, nobody judges you.
