Thank you for being patient everyone, and it has FINALLY paid off!!!
As of January 19th, 2012, the University of Autumn server will once again be online.
Unfortunately, the server's current technical limitations allocate us no more than 5 slots.
However, if anyone is willing to host a larger server for us (with all previous data and plugins of course, like the experience never changed!) please contact me via PM on the forum. If you cannot do so, please contact me via email at: [email protected]
If you say 'plz' because it's shorter than please, I think I'll say 'no' because it's shorter than yes.
Sorry, we can't whitelist you either. Read below.
We're working on the map right now and it might not even be up for a few more days. I'm optimistic and keep saying 'Oh, we'll have it up tomorrow' when the reality probably is it won't be. The server is up as is quite obvious, but only a select number of people (only Mods and Admins) were whitelisted so we can work on the city surrounding the University, the new spawn, we're also working on an entry for the Minecraft Mondays build contest. More importantly, we are constantly re-installing plugins, transferring over files from the old server, configuring things, updating plugins, and et cetera. We have too much going on and we can't hold classes simultaneously, and I do apologize. I know it's disappointing to the older students that as soon as we announced we're back up, the server isn't even open to the public. The IP in the OP is mainly, as I may remind you, for Mods and Admins.
Thanks in advance for understanding our situation, everyone.
This server looks interesting, definitely a unique concept. When do you think it will be open to the public? I understand that preparing it will take time, and I am personally willing to wait; but do you have an idea as to when I should expect the doors to be open?
Once the server is open, I will probably be able to fill the gap of the Potions instructor-I've run several potions shops in the past. I might be able to instruct a little bit on French, as well, although I only personally carry a basic knowledge of the language.
Thank you for your patience all, and we're finally remaking every building on campus from the ground up!
When the campus is finished (this time we'll have expansion in mind) it will be much larger, much more amazing than before!
The dormitories, for example, will come with a standard 'television' set and a set of beds.
As the rooms will be exponentially larger, there will be more possibility for customization.
Be warned however, we no longer will give away free things on the server, to anyone. (We're watching you, mods)
As my server had always been known for being a survival server until the opening of the UA, I've wanted to once more enforce a 'survival policy'.
Mods and admins are not allowed to give away free [spawned] items, however you will soon be able to buy simple essentials from admin-owned shops in Winterfell, and other items/blocks from player-run shops.
The currency used won't be the worthless currency most foolish admins use (iConomy money is not backed by anything, so it's worthless and ruins economies everywhere without administrators even realizing it).
Instead, we'll be using TradeCraft and our official server-wide currency will be gold nuggets. We will also widely accept a simple bartering system.
Player-run cities are free to choose which economic system they will use.
This brings me to another topic!
We will now be supporting player-built cities on the server! No longer are we just the University of Autumn, but a full-blast survival server! (The University is going to probably be our main focus however, not much moderation will be applied outside of the UA and the admin-run cities)
Cities will be given the power to declare war upon other cities, and if that city declares war in return, a war will begin.
Use of TNT, flames, and most other destructive tactics will be allowed. Once war is declared, allies can help out during battle. The first city to surrender is the loser, and must submit to the demands of the winning faction.
Well, that's about all I can say; If you have questions PM me on the MCF or add me on Skype: evan.sabinno
Mods and Admins:
We really need your help in the construction of the new campus! Please, upgrade to the latest prerelease (12w04a) and log in to the server!
I'm now going to run it 24/7, so you're welcome at any time.
Thanks in advance for understanding why this is taking so long to set up and open to the public once more.
Everyone, check it out!
We're on Vanilla 12w05b at the moment, but the server is public and running once more!
Teamducktape and I will be mostly doing terraforming and building, but you can have a look at the new campus and possibly have a class when we take a break from building ;P
So as soon as minecraft is on 1.2, and hopefully you guys update to 1.2, I would love to be your survival teacher. I have once gotten nine diamonds before it became night-time on a new world. I once beat the ender-dragon in hardcore mode without any hacks or spawned items of any sort. In a multiplayer pvp server, I once fought and killed an entire small village of people with only iron armour and a diamond sword, while they had iron swords and there were around 6 of them. Me and my friend yobi45 once fought against two admins while we were in survival and they were spawning themselves items. They had full diamond armor and diamond swords, but so did we (but we got ours legitimately), and whenever we killed them they would spawn more diamond stuff for themselves. We killed them both four times before we finally died.
Tl;dr? Well all in all, when this updates to 1.2, I'll be there and applying for both the Survival/Mining teacher, and the Pvp course teacher. I may also start up a spleef team to oppose The Dragons, and possibly a Nether club, where all we do is explore the nether for fortresses and kill some blazes. That is, if you accept that club idea, and if you have nether enabled.
