This is the spawn area from a birds eye view. Right click the box and click open image in new tab. For some reason I couldn't upload the image into the spoiler properly, sorry.
First off this is actually a reopening of this world so there are plenty of abandoned bases (I did increase the map size so there is plenty of unexplored places. When you spawn in you will spawn at the ONLY neutral area on this map the spawn aka the Airship. Once you set foot off the airship you are no longer protected by the safe zone.
(When you first enter I will give you abilities to do stuff and potentially teleport you near the exit so you know where it is.)
The ships spawn is pretty large you'll understand when you see it.
Near the exit there are two donation chests (players can donate whatever they want here; if they are empty I will restock them with "Starter Kits" ie Leather chest piece and boots stone sword and pickaxe and 5-10 bread or (x) amount of steak.)
(Gamer tags are disabled to prevent seeing other peoples bases/ location through the ground/ hills.)
Basically beyond spawn anything goes.
Although I'd still recommend reading through everything.
The Airship is not only a safe zone but it houses some facilities you can use ie maxed enchanting room anvils crafting tables.
NPC (Villager) Traders are located on the second floor (Currently expanding this)
On the second floor you can make your own shops to trade with other players.
During PvP Raidng chests that are inside bases is not allowed unless said base is abandoned. (Huge oversight forgetting to list this in the first place.)
PvP is allowed any where including inside bases.
Upon request I can teleport faction members to their base during a raid.
(Due to the ships size it can be difficult finding out how to get off the ship; so just ask me and I can help!. )
Voting for changes in the server:
If you want you can vote for rule changes in the game
(Changes can be voted for but the change will happen if it is reasonable.)
Examples of reasonable changes are:
Faction base greifing
Robbing player shops on the ship (if the clerk is there)
Claiming captured bases (Killing all opposition at a base and claiming that base as your own.)
(Currently none of the above is currently part of the game those are just examples of the types of changes you can make.)
[The jail is for petty crimes such as murdering while on the airship.
Duration of the incarceration is based purely on the offence and how severe.
The jail is considered a part of the game and jail time are seperate from bans.
Bans will not be lifted unless video proof is shown that you are innocent.
Jail sentences are based on day and night cycles. For example a Rabid Elmo appears and kills ten people in the spawn Elmo will face (x) amount of day and night cycles in jail.]
[While in jail the person who's being jailed will have no abilities and be placed in a jail cell at spawn.]
1. Stealing from bases while an entire faction is offline is punishable by jail time. (This can be changed to be a ban worthy offence if the majority of players vote for it.)
2. Killing on the airship is jail worthy.
3. Jail breaking (Results in double the sentence for the target of the escape and they get moved to maximum security.) The jail breakers sentence is decided upon by the severity of the targets offence and method of jail breaking.)
4. Greifing other peoples bases will be put to a vote once the population of the server increases to 5.
Greifing other peoples bases is jail worthy and potentially ban worthy. If you guys vote you can undo this or keep it as is.
This ruling is in effect as of 9/19/2016
Victims of griefing should alert me or another moderator and the damage will be undone.
(More may be added)
Unaware of a rule change protection:
If a rule has recently been changed and you accidentally break a newly changed rule you will only be notified of the change in rules without risk of jail time. (This applies to those who were not present at the time of the rule change.)
Ban worthy offences are greifing the ship.
and what ever else you vote for within reason.
[If a player is about to be banned the player in question will have their abilities taken away and everyone who wants to can use said player as a pinata till they explode loot; then the player in question will be promptly banned or left in a jail with no abilities and will be banned if a space in the game is needed for someone else.]
[Duels will be completely optional]
If two players agree to a duel with both parties confirming that they want to be teleported. I will then teleport them into a place where they can store the goodies they have on hand to recover later. Once each player confirms they are ready I will teleport the players into the world arena. It's set similar to the hunger games although upon request I can remove weapons from the box to allow you to decide the variables to the duel. 1v1 1v2 completely up to you!
At the moment I am looking for potentially 2 moderators for the game.
The decision is made by me and me alone.
The process may take a while.
Moderators will have the ability to give other players privileges and kick other players. Teleporting may be considered but most likely not be given. Switching game modes as a Moderator is not allowed under any circumstances without my authorization. A pop up will show up if someone switches modes; this should also be reported to me if this occurs.
Creative mode will never be given to anybody not even Moderators.
Moderators in short are some what like Police; they don't get advantages or powers like Superman. They are only there to keep order and ensure everything runs smoothly without issue.
Exceptions may be made to teleportation in future so there will always be someone to put trouble makers in jail. (Teleportation abuse will be ban worthy; although I'm the only one capable of teleportation at this time)
If there is an abusive moderator report this to me immediately they will be dealt with and potentially banned depending on severity.
(Video proof is ideal but I will investigate if there is none, the moderator in question will lose moderator status during the investigation.)
(Currently the only moderator is me.)
Some Moderators will only be granted Moderator status under certain conditions ie if I'm away for a long period of time (Basically a back-up host.) Or Moderators that keep watch while everyone else is offline ie "Others".
Back-up Host: ////////////////////////////
Back-up Host 2: [Not needed at the moment but maybe in future.]
Other Moderator: [To be determined]
Other Moderator:[To be determined]
[As the Host I will NOT be participating in PvP or Factions as that would be unfair.]
I am purely a spectator / moderator.
If an event occurs where I had forgot to list a rule or something on here that results in death that is entirely my fault and everyone involved will have their stuff replaced or recovered. I have re-read through everything in this post twice as to insure this scenario does not happen again. Pardons for jail will be given to everyone involved as the chain of events stems from my oversight.
This shouldn't be an issue again.
If you have any questions feel free to ask, I'll get back to you as soon as I can.
I also plan on adding events to the game at a later time; maintenance is my primary focus at the moment but I will spice up the game as much as I can to provide a good experience to the game.
Safe Zone Ruling:
If someone is trying to kill you and you run into the ship your attacker is still allowed to kill you without fear of facing jail time. [Yes this does happen more than you think lol.]
There isn't new player protection as soon as you leave spawn you're open to PvP due to the size of the map killing new players has never been an issue.
The spawn has a "community farm" that you are free to harvest and trees that can be chopped down.
You can build anywhere as long as it's not attached to the spawn (the ship).
Raids will be completely optional.
This is a work is progress
Essentially when every player in the game at the time agrees to a raid everyone will gather in a certain spot and have to navigate through obstacles that are yet to be determined. The raid boss will be waiting at the end.
Keep all loot will be turned on so no one loses anything. The Raid boss could potentially be a player although this idea is still being refined.
Balance will be a major role in how the Raid will work; balance will always be in mind.
Suggestions are always welcome for anything in the server!
Server up time:
24/7 as long as someone is in the game by 12 PM UTC the game will be left on over night my time. If no one is online the game might be closed. Upon request the game can be online 24/7 unconditionally.
(I only have it this way because currently there are little to no players from other time zones that would have people who play during the night where I am. Again if you want the game up over night just tell me and I will leave it open.)
How to join:
Shoot a friend request to XxPWNAGExX3 for an invite or alternatively leave a reply here that has your GT; although I'll see a message or friend request faster as I'm not always watching this post.
No age or microphone required anyone is welcome!
Sometimes the friend glitch happens where it says you're not friends with someone in the game when you first try to join the game even though you are friends, if this happens just tell me in the party or through a message and I'll help you get in.
I'll be keeping the world open as much as possible and I will update this thread whenever changes are made or news is to be shared!
Current State of the server:
3 factions currently exist and a dozen solo players at this point in time.
Around 12PM UTC I'm usually off for the night so if I don't send an invite within a minute or two either send me a message and I'll get back to you asap or leave your GT here.
The game is 24/7 but I myself can't be awake 24/7 it's not Humanly possible. At this point in time I don't have anyone that is online from the time I get off till the time I'm back on.
(the game will still online even if I'm away)
IF (this is very very very very unlikely to happen) when I'm offline for the night and the game closes that means my router had disconnected this only means the game went offline your progress will be safe as the game never actually closed it's merely just been bumped from being online to offline.
(I'm only posting this below as to be sure it doesn't blend in to the original post.)
