    Hey Aegis!


    I regards to the post above mine, can we sort something out that afk people do not contribute to mob spawning? Mobs can't attack an afk player so it makes no sense for them to spawn around them. Afk status should remove your presence entirely. That would fix numerous issues.


    Or perhaps there should be a limit to how many mobs can be near an afk player. So you would be able to afk mob farm if the mobs were constantly dying (like the guardian farm) but in manual mob farms the mobs would stop beyond a certain number (less than 50 preferred).



    Mobs from spawners work differently than other mob spawns, a person could sit by a "normal" darkroom spawner with no kill swith all day and the only thing anyone else would notice is that they're getting fewer spawns in the "wild". If they sit by a mob spawner, these are created independently of the mob spawn world caps, so they will pile up forever. As far as the world is concerned, an AFK player is no different from a normal player. I already turned off damage (this was when the world was first created and I didn't know how much PVP we would be having), made it so people can't move/heal/pick up items while afk, but affecting mob spawning and AI behavior is a whole other can of worms.

    There isn't an easy way to fix this, but I just put in place a new setting - users who AFK for 3 hours will be automatically kicked. This should give the best of both worlds, since if someone's AFK at their own base/spawner, stuff will "run" for 3 hours, and it should be right back the way the user left it when they sign back in.

    It shouldn't be too complicated...


    There are a few islands around where you started - one with a pumpkin and watermelon has some redstone and two grass blocks. The redstone should be enough to make stone generator, with the grass able to be expanded to allow passive mobs to spawn (like chickens, pigs, rabbits, and cows). You can use the grass with bonemeal to get seeds for wheat and flowers for dye as well.


    The MCMMO skills only really come into play if you break your grass blocks, which cuts off your access to passive mobs and wheat

    Name something you've always wanted to build in MC but never have been able to - Uh, there are a few farms which i haven't built yet, but otherwise i can't really think of something right now.

    How is it going?

    BTW found that one of the skyblock warps went to a skyblock already with a warp - I've labelled it.

    The tool didn't work - there will be no chunk cleaning for now. When it does happen, you shouldn't notice any changes either way, since I will basically do it overnight and shut the server down while its processing.

    You can reset it.


    The teleporting is based on command blocks, which only I have access to. Basically you should go out and set up a bunch of new skyblocks, and give me the coordinates of the starting island so I can set the command block in the lobby.


    Just make sure you don't place them in deserts or oceans, or else passive mobs won't be able to spawn.

    The 1:1 scale would be a pretty big build!

    I'm starting the full world download for minification today - I expect it to take a while, so I would recommend against building anything in the main world until I'm finished.


    The Nether, Skyblock, and The End will be completely unaffected, so I recommend continuing your projects there until I give the "All Clear"

    Lazini's new tool is finished now - in the next week I will be downloading the full world and deleting all unbuilt chunks.


    This means lots of cleared forests will be regenerated, lots of ocean monuments will be restored, dungeons rebuilt, and landscapes restored (and the world drastically shrunk).


    This will probably be set up as a separate world for a few weeks for testing.

    Good news!


    The first two Elytra Launch towers are operational!


    These are super-tall structures (going right up to the world height limit) that have an elevator inside to take you right up to the top. From there, spread the wings of your elytra and glide away!


    There are openings all around the top, just pop a sign pointing to your base, and take off! Currently, there is one tower built at spawn (just behind the main spawn building) and another built about 3/4 of the way between new spawn and old spawn.


    More towers will be popping up in the coming weeks, letting you use your Elytra to glide pretty much anywhere that is already connected to the rail network. You can also build your own at your own base, by pointing people in the right direction from spawn, you'll get lots of visitors to admire your builds!

    Hey Aegis!


    I have a thought regarding spawn. It seems that the desire to make and run stores is low so it might be useful to have more residential plots and less store plots. Already there are a number of blank blue zones that aren't built on. Perhaps we should try opening up some new green.


    Thats fine by me. The sad state of the shop system is a bit disappointing, but I guess we have so many long-term members at this point that most people have the "essentials" that they need. Its nice to see "luxury" shops popping up occassionally, though.

    The approach to spawn is basically to start identifying old properties built by people who are no longer active, and moving them to Old Spawn. The former spaces will be cleared back and prepared for redevelopment.

    In addition to this reset, I will be replacing our website as well with a new update.

    It seems new glass elevators shoot items REALLY far now, so I've added a new Collection Silo to my base to prevent spraying the forest with all my hard-earned loot
