So thanks to Nationalistic who’s suggestion this was!
  • Removed NPC from spawning for the Combat log, not sure why the developer thought it was a good idea to auto turn this on when I specifically had it set to off.

  • Created forum thread for new rules and pinned it so it shows in /motd when you log in.
  • Added temporary /msg when you log in to tell each person that the rules have updated and to refresh yourself with the new ruleset targeting bad behaviour. There is then no excuse for anyone to have not seen the new rules.
  • You can check anyone’s punishments in-game with /bminfo or check your own with /bminfo you can also use flags to show specific information -bans, -kicks, -mutes, -warns and even filter by -time. All this information is public on the website anyway, this just acts as a fast way to quickly check in-game! Very good to quickly see how trustworthy someone is!!
  • Had to spend a day tidying up /warp south here’s a before and after!
    • No more Traps, Player claims, Grief, Spam Signs, Turf Wars, Giant squares of stone brick at a public warp!
    • This was all on one side of south, which just happened to be the shortest distance from a public warp that players could claim on! I have expanded the south claim to match the rest of the warps. (I wonder why there were turf wars)
    • We will build a flat Arena that players can update here that fits in with the south design! Builder, Build Leader shouldn’t take too long if I move south to creative!
    • Nothing was lost! Bases were moved (This took the time!) thanks to lazydog11 helping me remove the 2000 claims around this area!
  • Shop owners can now rent the ship regions again!
    • I figured out the permissions for having a global shop limit, but still limiting shops to 1 per person, but allowing to rent shops from other “groups”, which I use to sell ships at /warp ship warps. This will give me many more options later to have separate groups of rentable regions outside of marketplace if you own a shop already.
  • Updated all SSL certs, so all maps back up!
  • Blocked mobs being able to hurt you at /warp shop After people using Entermites/Killer bunnies! Not fair if you can’t fight back! So these mobs can still spawn and run around, but won’t hurt you. I can block mobs if people spam them.
  • Removed Withers from being spawnable at the marketplace.
  • Removed being able to make a big door out of portal blocks (Thanks dpex81)
