Brave New World

Hello all, so there have been a few mod changes (minor) since the last announcement:

  • [Removed] Chisel & Bits: The mod was causing massive amounts of lag and so as much as it pained me to do so I had to back it out. Feel free to keep the launcher with that mod in it (if you have it still). Just note that mod will not be a part of the multiplayer experience any longer
  • [Added] Enchantment descriptions for Aquaculture: I noticed that the enchantment descriptions for aquaculture were blank and so I added them
  • [Added] More TV channels: You can find them under the link in the wikis section
  • [Tweaked] Rat spawn rate: I noticed that rats were not really spawning. I think it’s because the spawn rate was based on the vanilla spawn rate. I increased the spawn rates for both rats and the rat piper and both seem to be appearing at a good rate now. If either seem to low/high let me know.

Also on the server side of things there has been an (accidental) major change in that a script I’m using for cleanup and backup accidentally deleted the old world. The script has been fixed so this shouldn’t happen again. I also used the chance to pick a spawn rate that’s not a small island since sea serpents tend to be a substantial nuisance in those biomes. Once again sorry if you lost any progress and let me know if you did lose anything and I’ll replace it (it’s only fair). In any case that’s all for news this week, stay tuned for more in the future and as always I hope to see you online.

First Week Reflections

Well, our first week back up was fairly uneventful. Membership is still lagging but I hope to change that this time around. Nothing crazy but I would like to have 5 or 6 people active at a time. I also added a couple of mods to help with deco.

Flat colored blocks is new to me; but so far I’ve been fairly impressed. The ability to get blocks to build with in practically any color and the ability to combine dye colors is impressive.

Chisel & bits is a mode I’ve used before and I flip-flopped adding it last time around and also this time and so decided to go ahead and add it. It’s a fairly impressive mod allowing the user to split each block into 4096 smaller voxels (pixel sized blocks). this allows for some insane customization options and paired with the flat colored blocks mod users can pretty much make any decoration their heart desires.

So far as server news. The giant metal knight in the underground mine on the starting island has finally been defeated and sea serpents continue to make themselves a nuisance near the edges of the island so be careful. Looking forward to seeing what the next week brings and as always I hope to see you online.
