APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! APRIL FOOLS! All of this was fake, including the Tweet from Notch. Just having a little fun on April 1st . The mobs were all of the staff. I have seen a lot of awesome screenshots and from what I saw this event was a ton of fun. Thanks everyone, and look forward to two new servers tomorrow afternoon! ============================= Original post: ============================= I am sorry but we are no longer allowed to disable mobs in Town. Mojang has released an update that blocks our ability to keep monsters from spawning in Town. It seems they don't feel this was the way the game was supposed to be, as seen by this tweet on Notch's (Markus Persson) official Twitter: http://i.imgur.com/E0xhi.png. A few minutes after that Tweet the update was released. Because this is now built into the game, we can't do anything about it I recommend everyone gets on and makes sure they don't have any dark areas in their res. You might want to also build large walls to keep endermen from wandering on your lots and stealing your precious blocks!
