Empire update to 1.15 - The Aquatic Buzzy Village update!

Discussion in 'Empire Updates' started by chickeneer, Mar 15, 2020.

  1. Last nights update had a bug that wiped out a lot of chunks light data, making a lot of chunks go dark, or in some cases be lit when it shouldn't be, but mostly dark.

    If you find an impacted area, please message SS where and they can repair it for you.

    It would of only impacted chunks loaded for around 3 hours between 2:30-5:30AM EMC/EST time I believe was the range, so very few players on.

    But 1 player teleporting in town could of loaded a lot of chunks (I did a lot of repairing on smp6 already)
  2. Can the addition of raids in wild be addressed again? I understand that there may be a lack of villages in some areas but the new towers wouldn't spawn in old chunks anyways.

    Another note is that villages can be made very easily now so that should fix any issues of limited villages. So now even if you come across a mobile raid party, anywhere you want to create a village, you can participate in said raids.

    You only need spawn eggs for villagers since they won't auto spawn.

    Hopefully you consider this addition as it is a fun part of the wild life.
  3. It would be nice to have a raid farm in a place that won't get reset.

  4. Raid farms are something that we likely won't support. Will be adjusting configs for raids.

    We are looking at supporting raids for Frontier, but farms are not a target for support. Raids cost tremendous lag, so we have to be careful with them.

  5. Hopefully thing becomes a thing then. Not looking to farm. Manually fighting raids is the fun part.

  6. Raids have fewer rounds than in vanilla. They don't seem to get to the big final rounds. Is that something that was adjusted?
  7. We have not made any intentional changes to the mechanics of raids. Only which worlds will activate a raid.
  8. Mobs sometimes getting stuck underground and then prevent the raids from continuing. We haven't noticed any less waves though. I think there is 5 when solo and maybe another or 2 depending on omen level or possibly users in the village with you.

  9. Ya, I just looked and it's based on difficulty. At normal there are 5 and hard has 7. I must have played hard before. It was a blast though. You would have 4 or 5 players together and it was tough and exciting. This one with 5 rounds is easy peasy. One player can easily beat a raid. Maybe you should think about adjusting that. That would be cool. Just a suggestion.

  10. I will consider putting in a change for us to run the hard level raid. (Without upgrading our overall difficulty)
  11. Better yet. I wonder if I can add some code to have the level of raid depend on the player's /difficulty. Will have to think that one over a bit.

  13. Ok here is a really stupid question.
    I am trying to update to 1.15.2, but the launcher only gives me the option to update to 1.16. Is there a safe site I can get the file for 1.15.2 so I can get back to playing on EMC again?
  14. check https://wiki.emc.gs/version for info on how to downgrade to 1.15.2 :)
    Also see that the top of the page has this note:
    "While EMC supports 1.16 clients, please continue to use 1.15.2 version for best support."

  16. EDIT: wafflecoffee ninjaed me with a link to a much better step-by-step process. Use mine below if you're lazy and don't want to click a link. Use waffle's if you like more detail. :p

    You're probably using the latest release installation, which is the default option on minecraft if there are no others to choose from. To change it: when you open the Minecraft Launcher click "Installations" near the top left of the window.

    New window opens up showing your installations. Above that to the right will be two icons saying "New" and "Search". Click New.

    Window looking like this will pop up.

    Under name: Use whatever you want (I use EMC since I only play on EMC for MC :p).

    Under version: click the dropdown arrow and scroll down until you find "Release 1.15.2" Click that. At this point you're done. Click create at the bottom right and wait for any needed installations to complete, then you can keep playing. You can tinker with resolution and game directory but I generally don't touch that.
