Chat Channels Added!

Massivecraft has rolled out its newest set of chat channels to enhance and improve communication for players and staff in-game. We know how important channels are for getting people here and there, for talking without disturbing others and generally for feeling a part of the community and so the tech gurus have released 3 new channels for you to enjoy.

 

PVP

PVP is a new chat channel made specifically for PvP members of the community but can be accessed by anyone. It has been made to re-route PvP related discussions, debates and issues away from General chat.

We know PvP can be frustrating and sometimes you just need to vent, goad, or otherwise challenge your opponents! Staff believes that you should have the right to take those issues into a chat in a way that does not affect other players or fill up the main chat channel and so PVP chat will allow you to do that.

Please note the following about PvP Chat

PvP Chat Cooldowns: same as global chats 60s non-prem 30s prem

PvP Chat Rule Violations:

No severe personal insults towards others

No excessive cursing towards another player

No doxxing threats, no actual doxxing

No severe sexism

No severe racism

No ERP

No trying to cause mass-panic

No severe political, religious or insensitive comments

No advertising competing servers

You can access this chat by typing “/c join pvp” or “pvp:” or “p:

 


RP-OOC

RP-OOC is a new channel that acts like a General chat for Roleplayers. It allows people to ask questions, request roleplay or discuss RP events without disturbing ongoing RP. This chat channel is accessible to all but will be used specifically for Roleplay topics and discussions.

If you’re looking for someone to roleplay with, looking for the location of an event or want to ask a friend about something related to their character, this is the perfect channel for you.

You can access this chat by typing “/c join RP-OOC” or “RP-OOC:” or “o:

World Broadcast

 

World Broadcast is an announcement channel very similar to the Broadcast channel in that only staff members will be able to use it but all players will be able to read it, the main difference being that whereas Broadcast is universal, World Broadcast will only be seen by players in the world that it is announced in.

This channel is brilliant for events and world-specific information that will allow important announcements to be seen without bothering anyone it isn’t relevant to.

Changes for Factions Worlds

Changes for Factions Worlds

 

 

 

MassiveCraft is consistently looking towards the future of our server, and ways to better develop the community.  Staff has taken a hard look at how our survival worlds operate, and spoken to those who play them most.  We have decided to take a large step to improve Factions as a whole. The staff believes in making MassiveCraft a stronger, healthier place, with a thriving player base.  That includes encouraging players to fully enjoy and interact with the worlds we build.

To that end, MasssiveCraft has decided, after months of intensive study, to reduce the amount of Factions worlds.  We believe that this will result in a stronger factions community, with much more player engagement.

 

The Worlds that are Remaining

Teled Methen

Teled is the most populated of all of the current worlds, and though it only contains one biome, the terrain itself creates enough diversity within said plains biome to allow players the ability to create many different, sprawling factions

Fendarfell

Fendarfell is the second most populated of the current worlds, providing players with ample biome and terrain diversity to create a multitude of different factions and themes.

New Ceardia

New Ceardia is a world full of player builds and diverse biomes, as well as holding historical significance to many players who built there for years. It also contains a large player base, with several large factions residing there.

 

The Worlds Being Removed

Ithania

Ithania is the oldest world, also created with a system which is completely outdated.  Furthermore, there are very few factions settled there, the majority of PvP factions have their PvP towers there, which are easily relocated, and some factions are shying away from towers altogether.

Jorrhild

The least populated of all of the worlds, only a handful of factions call this continent home. That, coupled with it being a single sheet of ice and snow, doesn’t make it appealing to the playerbase, and therefore make it an ideal candidate to be removed.

Hyarroc

While Hyarroc is the newest world, created with some of the best terrain control, it would be an obvious choice to be kept. However, jungle biomes are notoriously bad for faction creation, and coupled with how flat and expansive many areas are, the world itself just hasn’t gathered the playerbase it should have, and therefore loses out on a place to New Ceardia.

 

Why?

 

These changes are motivated in part by player population, world usage, and the variety of biomes.  The current player population does not warrant the need for six full faction worlds.  And whilst some of the worlds are already bustling with players, several of them are only ever used at specific times, or have very few players in them regardless.  Furthermore, the worlds which have more players in are still not too heavily populated. Large distances must be travelled to interact with other factions, which is inhibiting the growth of the factions themselves, and the community as a whole.  

In addition to this, the sheer number of worlds may well be a contributing factor to the lag experienced on MassiveCraft. Reducing the worlds down to one per sharded server should address that as much as possible, whilst also removing the confusion amongst players as to which world players in their tab list could be on.

 

 

What does that mean for you, the Factions player?

 

You can apply for your factions build to be moved into one of the remaining worlds.

The following is important to remember when applying for your faction build to be moved.

Only main factions can be placed by staff.  Alt claims have to be moved to a main factions claim.

Alt faction builds can only be moved to a claimed area by their main factions.

As a rule, only above ground builds will be moved.  These are the following exceptions.

 

Active, well built underground cities in main factions qualify to be moved over to remaining worlds
Non-active factions won’t be moved, no matter their quality (active = used)
Storages won’t be moved (this includes potion storages)
Darkrooms won’t be moved
Underground farms won’t be moved
Sewers of lesser quality that are easily rebuild won’t be moved
Well built, actively used alt factions will be moved, if there is an existing claim in one of the remaining worlds (same as above ground).

 

Staff reserve the right to reject a build of poor quality.

The deadline to apply for your build to be moved is April 8th, 2018

The form to apply for your faction build to be moved is here.

Please be as thorough and as complete as possible.

It is expected that all build moves will be complete by April 15th, 2018.

 

We understand that this is a large undertaking for factions players.  Staff will do our very best to answer your questions as thoroughly as possible, and also keep you updated with any new information that may arise as we approach the deadline. We will all be working tirelessly to make sure that this transition is as smooth and easy as possible for everyone involved.  The team at MassiveCraft want to thank you for your patience and support, and hope that these changes make a better play experience for everyone.

MassiveCraft Discord Goes Live!

The everlasting debate of TeamSpeak vs. Discord is now coming to a close.

MassiveCraft will now host both of them!

 

We are opening a Discord for others to be able to join in voice AND text chats with the community.

 

The rules of this Discord will be the same as the MassiveCraft TS.

 

How to Join:

  • Click the Discord link below.
  • Sign into your account or create a new one if you do not already have one.
  • That is all, you should be good to go!

 

Rules:

  • No disruptive behaviour. This may include bad language, harassment, racism, sexism, advertising, raging or venting.  Do not post inappropriate links. Please try and use English when talking to people, as it may be difficult for us to understand you.
  • No whistling into the microphone.
  • No vulgar nicknames.
  • If you’re told you’re making too much noise, either leave or use push-to talk immediately. We don’t want to hear your mom yelling at you from another room.
  • If you get moved out due to your noise or disturbing behaviour, take it as a hint and rectify your issue before coming back.
  • Never slander or insult the server, its staff, or players. Personal attacks will not be tolerated.
  • Appealing ban requests via Discord is not the right way to be pardoned, and will equal you being banned on Discord.
  • If you happen to receive a position on Discord which you know you’re not supposed to have, report it immediately or be banned permanently.
  • Don’t spam trying to get one person’s attention in a room you know you can’t access. Wait till they’re ready to come to you.
  • It’s considered very rude to interrupt people talking. Please use a private chat if you must have a conversation with one person.
  • Do not record players or staff in public channels without their permission.

Can’t wait to see you there!

Connection Fixes

Connection Fixes and ProtocolSupport Patches Rolled Out!

 

Once again, you can connect to the Regalia server on a number of Minecraft versions!

 

Regalia connectivity extends from 1.8 up to1.12.2!

No more worries about version numbers when you want to leave the wilds of Ithania to wander the most beautiful and inhabited city on a Minecraft server!

This fix includes the market!

Remember that MassiveCraft supports 1.8 combat, regardless of version number you play on!

In addition, the past few months saw a number of players that would time-out when they tried to connect to the server, regardless of version they were connecting to. We believe that we’ve instituted a few bug fixes to prevent that as well. So connect, and play on!

As always, if you experience any difficulties, please contact staff with specific issues, so that we can keep working diligently to make your play experience fantastic.
