Recently we have added a new content delivery network, implementing more locations for players to connect to reducing the lag and keeping their speeds as fast as possible. Not only is this good for the individual player to use, but also for everyone around them. Spreading out the load among several entry points will allow for more players to join and less lag for everyone. Here are the three new locations and their respective IPs you can connect through. The locations west, central, and main refer to general areas in the United States:
west.parkourcraft.comorwest.mc-pc.usThis entry point is located in Portland, Oregon.
central.parkourcraft.comorcentral.mc-pc.usThis entry point is located in Dallas, Texas.
mc.parkourcraft.comormc-pc.usThis entry point is located in Montreal, Canada. (Not hosted in the United States, but is very close to Vermont, US)
eu.parkourcraft.comoreu.mc-pc.usThis entry point is located in Paris, France.
This map will help give you an idea of which entry point you might want to connect to based on your location.
It has been just over six months since the last post was made on this front page, and it will be of the last. Parkourcraft is about to go under some major reconstruction, and the website will be a part of it. Yes, Spigot and bukkit 1.8 has been released and I have never been more excited. Many resets are about to happen, and in them many changes on each server.
Parkourcraft will be switching to a xenforo themed website sometime in the hopefully near future. This will include signing up from in-game to hopefully invoke more players to join our forums. Many new changes will happen with xenforo, but unfortunately I do not have a great understanding of it so it will be of one of the last things to be updated.
The part that most of you want to hear about are the resets. At the moment these are the servers that I am planning to reset, and I will try to list most of the features that will change.
Factions is going to be the main and model change for all of the servers mainly because this is one server I really want to focus on. As few of you might know, Parkourcraft originated as just a factions server, and while it was just a factions server, the server was quite popular. This is something I want to get back to. To list most of the changes that will occur: the enabling of TNT, changing the pricing of items to work on a better economy that focuses on player to player buying and selling, opening chests in enemy territory (with new factions plugin), pvp timer for new players, mcmmo reset, and most likely more changes as I begin taking in more suggestions and creating the server.
Survival at the moment is not going to have many other changes than a new shop, and a pvp timer. Any suggestions you have for survival would be greatly appreciated.
Skyblock is going to see a completely new skyblock plugin, for the one we currently are using is no longer being updated, and many of it's features no longer work. Again, suggestions appreciated.
Creative will be of the last to be reset. At this moment, I am not entirely sure what this reset will include, and it will be of the last. Maybe this reset is unwanted, if so I would love to hear that. I just imagine adding larger plot sizes and updated the plot plugin.
Guns has been worked on for the last few weeks (on and off), but since the beginning of me starting the "new guns" server, not much has happened. I hope to release guns soon, but it is not on the top of my priority list.
This seems to be something that people want reset. I am among those people. Resetting bans will bring back many old players who were very competitive. This is final.
Please post suggestions you want to see happen these servers, because at the moment I have an open mind and would love some help with reset ideas.
As many of you know, Factions and Survival is going to be going through a reset once the next official Minecraft update occurs, which is the 1.8 update. Not everything is for certain what we're going to be doing yet, but we do want input from the community. I have posted two different forum posts about suggestions for the reset.
Also, here are the things that we are currently planning to do with the reset:
Overworld, Nether and End will have a map reset.
Enderchests will be reset.
All kits will be reset (Meaning, you may use your one-time kit again but only once until another full reset.).
All coins are going to be reset (Donations for ranks or coins will be given their coins again.).
McMMO levels will remain, but McMMO Unarmed may be disabled.
All players will still retain their ranks.
Now, we want your input on suggestions, because Factions and Survival have been relatively the same since the start of the server. So, we want to know what you'd like to see added, removed, changed, improved, and kept the same.
