I am back from the land of the lost to announce the return of MCES, Minecraft Elite Survival. WE have a new dedicated server with 32 player slots. Our server is the continuation of MCES and has the staff members from that server. We have a limited pvp in that towns and homes are not pvp areas, but once you leave the town or go into a mine, it is open season. We have yet to completely finish the world and all of the buildings, but the server is fully functional and we are now releasing the IP to you all. We have some plugins to help prevent griefing, and we do not ban players. We jail you. Then we place you in our courts to determine your jail time. Our staff consists of 1 admin and 1 mod. Do not ask to be promoted to either of those. Do not. You do, and you throw any chance of becoming a mod away. We are going to have 2 more mods, but those positions will not be available to be applied for until I deem it time. We offer a bank for players to store stuff and keep it safe from raiders, to which we do allow, and all of those rules are in the spawn building when you first connect to the server. You can explore, raid, build, and pretty much do what you want, just follow the rules and there will not be any problems.
We have more features that we are adding in to help players, but we are going to open our doors early so people can come and see what we have.
We did have some problems with our permissions, that was my fault, I did not set them up correctly. However, we have fixed them and everything is working correctly now. I have decided to show you some of the pics that we have from our server since words cannot tell you everything. If you were a player from the original MCES, then you will recognize some of them.
Our dark temple: previously the spawn
The motel, where rooms are rented to players
Our residential area, where players may purchase a plot of land to make their home upon
The spawn town, where different services are offered (or will be)
The courthouse, where jail appeals are handled
Our staff is very cooperative and will assist you if you have a problem. Of course, they wont do things for you like give you items or teleport you, since that would defeat the purpose of having a survival server. However, if you find that you cannot do something, then they can help you.
Something that you might want to know now: there is no tnt allowed unless you apply for a permit, to which only the admin and owner will approve of. Fire spread is off, and lava will not cause any fires, so do not worry too much about griefers.
We do have the nether and the temple has a portal to the nether in it, so if you want to test your luck, you can go to the nether and build. Realize that only towns and certain places are protected, and unless we make a nether town, anything in the nether can be raided.
Here we are with another update to our buildings. We now have started a city that is hanging from the ceiling underground and is build over lava. It was built by hand, not using world edit, since using world edit would make it less epic. It took a few hours to make, but we are happy with the results. We have worked hard at this and have 8 places for players to make a new home. It also has a spleef arena for those that want to have fun and make their opponents fall into the lava that the city is made over. It is not yet complete, but when it is, it will have its own shop and bank so players can get stuff for their adventures right there. Here are a few screenshots of it. I am sorry if they are not too good, the city was not built in the best way to have a screen shot made, but it can work.
