Factions/Survival Server Reset As you may have noticed, factions has been reset. By reset, I mean that everything other then mcmmo skill levels were reset. You also may notice that survival at the moment is not even up. We do not have a spawn built for it yet, but hope to have one out soon. I could not stand our old survival spawn, and I want ParkourCraft to look as professional, and visually pleasing for a player as possible.
Applications Here is some information about when you make an application. If you have made an application, do not even talk to a staff member about having your applications denied or accepted. Also, when we go to hire new staff members, we never immediately make them a moderator or admin. We have a pretty well sized server, and we need mature staff, who understand the rules before they are given the responsibilities of a trusted and up.
If you made an application and you are denied, I would recommend you to wait a few days, and thoroughly re think your application. We always deny applications that are not suffice. Applications that do not have enough information are denied. If we think that you are not mature enough to be a staff member, you may also find your applications denied.
If you made an application and have not been denied within a few days, and Superclam1 or another staff member has commented on it saying something that would not imply it was a bad application, you need to wait. When we go through the process of hiring a new staff member we will go through the list of applications we have no denied.
From now on we are going to be a lot more strict about the applications.
I would love to hear what you think about the new factions server (yes I understand there are still glitches). Leave a comment on this post to share some feedback. You can also leave some feedback on how you think we could improve on our Factions and Survival servers. Factions spawn was built by ParkourCraft Admin: Superclam1
Hello. From now on I am going to try to update this feed more often to keep everyone updated in what work is being done on the server.
Addressingthe Faction/Survival Downtime As you may have noticed, recently Factions and Survival are constantly crashing, and sometimes they will cause minor to major rollbacks. I apologize for not taking action about the rollbacks earlier. On factions I installed an Auto-Saving plugin that will fix the rollbacks. (I will be installing Auto-Save on Survival later today) Though I think I have temporarily fixed the crashing errors on Factions and Survival, I cannot be entirely sure. The errors that have been going on are being caused by the version of bukkit we are running (Bukkit is the application that runs the server and allows us to have things like Factions). There is nothing I can do about the errors, until bukkit finishes a reccomended build for 1.7.2. Right now we run on a 1.6.4.build, which is why you cannot use the new 1.7.2 features. And no, I have no idea when bukkit might come out with a reccomended build.
New Guns Server Though I am probably going to regret releasing this new info in this update post, I will anyways because I am very excited about it. You may have heard from some of the other players on the server that beta tested it, but yes, we are going to be releasing a new kind of Minigame that will have it's own /server. The new game type will be a game based off four classes (Four classes for now). The classes are Sniper, Rifleman, Support and Shotgunner. Each class will have its own special features, for example: The support class is going to have an LMG (RPD), a med kit to heal players, and a Bazooka. Right now I have no idea when this is going to be released, because there are quite a few errors that still exist, such as fixing team killing. The reason I will most likely regret talking about this before it is released, is that people will now be constantly asking when this will come out. I can not be sure when this will be released. I want to release it with as few bugs as possible. The estimated time though, is 1-2 weeks. This could be sooner or later, so do not count on it.
PS: If anyone is a bukkit developer, and thinks they can help us out, please comment on this post. I will try my best to contact you.
