Important Updates

Spawning:
- Mobs now rarely spawn in groups and are much slower to group up.
- Mob spawning is much more steady.

Overall, this means a more consistent attack of mobs, but in much smaller waves.


Food Mechanics:
- The cooldown on food use is now 1 1/2 seconds.

This makes the overall game mechanics much better for both PvE and PvP. Previously, all you had to do was spam food and you could live through most situations. Now, you are back to needing to use strategy, careful decision making, and tactical skill to stay alive. Since mobs do not group up like they did before, survival is nearly as easy as it was, but the overall gameplay mechanics are much more enjoyable.


Lesser Updates

Wolf Update:
- Wolves are no longer auto-aggressive vs players under level 45.

This is to help with a bug for wolves not despawning correctly. Wolves were only intended to spawn for high level players.


Potion Updates:
- Added some potion crafting materials to rare loot drops.

This is a prelude to a future update to potion mechanics that will customize the effects of various potions and thus give them more significance to gameplay.


More updates coming soon!

This is the problem with the server hal... Its. Too. Easy. I fell in love with a much harder server, and i would've enjoyed the original Pande server which i hear was the hardest of them all... You set out to make a hardcore server, and alot of players set out to find a hardcore server... Yours is the closest thing to, but the most disappointing aspect, is that with every week that drags by, it gets easier, and easier... This is no longer the server in which I fell in love with... Its not even close..

I'm sure this latest food mechanic update will have fixed much of what you're complaining about. Try it out and let me know.

The challenge while adventuring on this server should be much more enjoyable now.

Updates:

1. Darkness update
Running through unlit dungeons without using lighting will cause you to receive the darkness effect.

The Darkness Effect:
Occurs when exposed to absolute darkness for more than 8 seconds.

Initial Darkness Effect:
- Small decrease in speed
- Small increase in damage taken

After prolonged exposure, Full Darkness Effect:
- Substantial decrease in speed
- Noticeable increase in damage taken
- Substantial increase in mob spawns
- Noticeable increase in mob health

Light exposure:
Any light exposure, even light level 1 (13 blocks away from a torch) will begin resetting your darkness timer and restoring you to normal. The time spent in pitch dark caves builds up to the point where it can take up to 45 seconds to totally remove the effect.

This feature is entirely based around the idea of creating additional incentive for lighting up caves and to create additional consequences for high level players that disregard the idea.


2. Mob updates
- Improved pathfinding
- Less lag / better optimization

As we all know, Hal has recently implemented two new things.
1. a big cave which was refreshed
2. the darkness effect
Well, I went into the big cave, used all my jack-o-lanterns up (2 stacks) and still had left 60% of the cave unexplored. I decided I could go on without it, oh boy was I ever wrong (well I did go on and live to tell the tale, but the tale would probably scare me forever if it were in real life, but as a player it was simply an amazing experience.
I have some photos.
For the first photo, while there I got two kills.
culen, also known as "killer of noobs"
ajbm, which I do feel bad for killing him, he tried to make me kill him naked but I made him put on his dia armor/gold sword to fight me. :P
Here is a sc of the culen kill
Posted Image
I said "rip ­" cause he's a noob killer, killing Mircea later (i have your head now mircea :))
Here is a photo of what the darkness effect does. After about 1 minute give or take this was the amount of mobs spawning.
Posted Image
As you see in the photo, there was 7 cave spiders and 6 pig zombies alone in the span of 10 seconds. Oh wonderful. :)
Sorry for the bad photo the last time, just as you can see I was being attacked by a pig zombie and didn't exactly have the time to take more.

So I was chilling today at the fort, chopping down trees when I see a Pig Zombie on the surface just outside. Odd and extremely rare...ok. As soon as I turn around I get oneshot by an enderman. On the surface nontheless. Not really sure how a player with 2 pieces of leather can deal with endermen on the surface.Posted ImagePosted Image

He didn't kill mircea, he killed some random douche who was killing people.
Anohow, I'm kinda glitched in game. It was a restart while I was crafting, I was crafting more pickaxes because i'm hoarding cobble, so it restarts, I join again, and I can't talk. Nor can I walk on the pressure plate that makes another block of cobble spawning. Nothing works, exept placing/breaking blocks. I can't even open a chest/crafting table Posted Image So yeah i'm pretty stuck, can't talk/open anything, and I lost a stack of cobble. Help pls? xD

Edit: I'm actually not able to break blocks either, when I relog anything I place/break gets rollbacked or something.

Blocks are placed on your log-in spot.
Go on an alt, remove the blocks and log back in with your main account.
That should fix it.

WARNING


I'd like to warn you all of a noob-killer.
His name is culen320. Anyways, as a more experienced player, I still despise noob killers. That is why I'm posting this. I am creating what I call a "noob-killing defense system" basically, if you see culen and i am on, shout out the coords. Try your best to run, and i'm sure some experienced player or me if i'm not busy will be on their way to you to help. If you do die, we will still try to avenge you. This applies to any noob-killer, just culen is the one doing the most killing at the moment.

"Minepro97"`s Whitelist Application:

1. What is your In-Game Name?
My in game name is "minepro97" and my real name is Josh. I have an alternate account with the user name of "cosmos999" if alts are allowed.

2. Why do you want to join this server?
I wish for a better challenge in minecraft survival and this server practically made me have a nerdgasm when I read the opening lines. I love different styles of minecraft and I love to be challenged and able to excecute my skills. I have always played and loved both PvP and PvE in many forms of the game and this server seems to have a lot of the right ideas to making a great combination of both.

3. How long do you think you will survive on your first night?
I play a very agressive style of play and I think I would try to not waste any time during the day and get myself a lot of resources. I will then venture the land, keeping moving at all times, targeting spiders and skeletons for a bow and arrows. In a desperate situation, I will try to run and pick the gaps in between swarms of mobs.

4. What do you think will be the cause of your first death on this server?
I think my first death will be like all my deaths. I never die by clumsiness, I never die in situations I should get out of (because if I should, I will get out), but I do die by overconfidence. I will most likely die by putting myself in a situation where I cannot possibly win no matter how skilled I am, nor escape alive because of my haste in jumping into a 3 by 3 hole filled with zombies. I may do the same with pvp and jump straight into a 3v1 confidentally, thinking I can win and not giving up, I will usually die, but I will often take down one of the three.

Edit: lordofwaffles?!??! HI THERE, remember me from convicted? Guard for 11.5 months now? Posted Image
