I just wanted to let everyone in on some good and bad news. The good news is that the next Minecraft release, Minecraft 1.0, is going to be awesome. This release is going to bring the game out of beta and will come out sometime around Minecon. I started testing some things with this release and the Empire and that brings us to the bad news. There is a really good chance we are going to have to reset Wasteland, Nether, Wilderness, and Utopia.
Town would NOT be reset, as it is not a regular Minecraft world.
I am telling everyone this now cause we have weeks to prepare before the release (we hope). So this would mean you should hold off on doing any big projects in any world other than Town, and start collecting anything important you have in the worlds and moving it to your residence.
The problem is not that the worlds would not work, they would (sorta). The problem is that they will always be plagued with errors, especially when the world expands to uncharted areas (most of our worlds are pre-1.8 and even getting them to work on 1.8 was a royal pain). I guess this is the risk we had building the community around a beta game. I wanted to let you all know ASAP and I will continue to keep the community updated.
- Fence gates are now protected like doors (you have to have the "use" permission flag to open and close them)
- Redstone repeaters can only be adjusted if you have the "use" permission flag in that residence.
- Players can no longer trample crops, unless they have the "build" permission flag. But be careful you still can trample your own and so can animals!
- You can no longer use bone meal on other players residences unless you have the "build" permission flag.
- New command /visit random - takes you to a random players residence
- New command /visit open - takes you to a random unclaimed residence (great for new players)
Thanks for everyone's patience during this update, logistically it was one of the hardest software problems I have ever solved. Also thanks to the new players who had to wait for a residence.
Remember that if you are a free player and you don't login for an entire month you will lose your residence (and everything in it). More information: http://empireminecraft.com/threads/283/
Supporters will always be able to connect to the server, no matter how busy it is. Click here to learn more about becoming a supporter.
Upgrading servers again is a possibility but will cost more than what we pay now. We can't afford this unless we get more supporters. Therefore the number of "free" slots the server has will always be determined by the number of supporters we have.
I really hate delivering this message and I wish there was another way. I have spent the last several days straight on my computer (I even took time off work) trying to tweak every last drop of performance out of the server. I am going to continue trying to do the best I can with what we have to maximize the number of connections we can support.
So for the last few weeks we have been kicking around many ideas to improve the selection process so we can be sure to add quality players to our community. What a lot of big servers do is an application process. One problem with this is that it takes hours (or days). Then we came up with the idea of making you join the site before the server, and having a "quiz". This sounded really boring and like a crappy experience for gamers.
I am proud to announce an innovative solution to this problem, the new user tutorial. Every brand new user to the Empire will be placed inside the tutorial. It is a series of questions in a maze format. For each correct response the new user is rewarded with part of the new user rupees as well as some basic starter items. Although the questions are easy they will still require new players to at least visit the guide on the site. The catch is that you do not even get access to the chat until you complete the tutorial.
Additionally new players will no longer be required to join the site to claim a residence.
Dark_Liz designed the entire tutorial and built it with AusQB....
