What do you like about the server? The semi-whitelist and no pvp.
What improvements can we make? Do not know yet, haven't played on it more than 5 minutes.

Jan 17, 2013protokon posted a message on [Now has Hunger Games!] Slakcraft, Raiding Action.The way factions is configured on this server is complete BS.Posted in: PC Servers
While no faction members are online, you cannot raid their base, period. even with TNT. tnt-cannoning does absolutely nothing. Everyone is nice and comfy and safe until they come back online.
While at least one faction member is online, claimed territory does NOTHING to protect you or your stuff. apparently, enemied factions can come into your territory and break blocks, do anything they please. Factions no longer exist to protect anything as far as I'm concerned.
Today we had a "mod" enemy our faction, walk into our base, destroy a bunch of redstone machines, break down and iron door and a trapdoor and get straight into our treasure vault - all with no tnt, just breaking the blocks. That is NOT how factions was intended to work, it was intended for you to kill faction members and steal their claimed land before you could break into protected areas, after you dropped their total faction power below the amount of land they owned.
I've played factions on over a dozen server, and run 3 myself and configured factions. Not once have I ever seen this configuration of being able to straight up grief someone's base as long as one person is online, even if they have power to keep their land.
I've had it with the senseless argueing of the airheaded admins and moderators here.
Whether or not admins admit to "cheating" or "foul play", it is never a good idea to have admins/mods involved in pvp or griefing. you will ALWAYS be accused of abusing powers, and in my experience, 90% of the time it ends up being abuse.
here is the description from Wlo1234 on how enemied factions should act:
"When one faction declares another as an enemy, both will be set as enemies. If only one faction declares war, that faction can turn neutral again if they want to, without the consent of the other faction. However, if one faction declares war, and the other faction also types /f enemy, both faction has to accept and agree on an /f neutral request.
Once enemies, both factions can harm the other on even the enemy's claimed lands, but with a reduced damage. You still, however, cannot build or destroy blocks, or use doors and chests etc. on the enemy's claimed lands. /f enemy is usually the only way you can raid or steal from a faction. Enemy factions are displayed in red."
...What that means is that enemied factions are allowed to *attack* eachother in their own territories, but not break blocks until the territory is claimed.
I would highly advise anyone sensible to stay away from this server. There are many, many faction servers out there that don't have airheaded admins or a screwy system which allows enemied factions to break blocks without claiming your land.
Nov 14, 2012dj_se7en (the server owner) is taking a break from administrating his server due to real life reasons.Posted in: PC Servers
I will be temporarily taking care of the server. Please feel free to come to me with suggestions or complaints. I am also looking for two staff members to help out when I am not around.
Nov 13, 2012Just an update, setup a few new plugins:Posted in: PC Servers
-redprotect (a plugin that allows you to define a region outlining it in redstone, then protect it so nobody can grief you)
-worldguard (necessary for market plugins we will be using)
-vault (necessary for redprotect)
-worldedit (necessary for worldguard)
-coreprotect (allows us to rollback griefing and sniff out who griefed in the first place)
-orebfuscator (anti x-ray)
-anticheat (for obvious reasons)two people were banned tonight - thuglife13 and sonicclash.
-vandalizing other people's homes (and stealing)
-use of innapropriate nicknames
-very excessive vulgar language/name calling
Sep 27, 2012FYI for anyone looking for a new home on a factions-pvp server, my faction, Wayfinders, is now open for recruitmentPosted in: PC Servers
I have a few requirements and a small 2-day trial period to make sure you are trustworthy/are of the same mentality. I am most active late at night since I work during the day.currently building up stockpiles of materials and finishing fortifying and outfitting the faction base.

I totally agree with you on this point. The most fun i ever had on a server was one that had factions set up this way. Your land was protected from everything but TNT. Chests werent protected at all, however you could create a vault to store your valuables in. I havent joined this server yet, but it sounds like they havent modified factions at all, meaning you actually have to destroy a faction and then claim their land to get they stuff. Which honestly is quite boring and time consuming.
Also im definitely not gonna join this server until it gets some sort of no-cheat plugin. Thats just too much of a risk to take.
aye, and although I am experienced with pvp - sadly I forgot about the whole 'ender pearl glitch' of getting through a block. I came up with the idea of creating my base entirely of glass two layers thick and covering it with water to protect it from tnt, to kind of taunt my enemy factions with a crystal clear view into my base that they can't get too
sadly, I played on creative to test and you can get through a glass wall no matter how thick it is so no clear base for me. will have to put a solid block on the inside lining or on both sides.
Sep 26, 2012oh and I almost forgot - you can't open chests in someone elses' faction territory >< also defeats the entire point of raiding. people have to lockup their valuables better than claiming a piece of land and putting them in a chest on that land - please enable us to open chests in factionsPosted in: PC Servers
Sep 26, 2012OK so there are a few things i'd like to comment on:Posted in: PC Servers
-explosions. I haven't confirmed it, but I was told by one of the moderators that tnt does no damage to anything (creepers for sure dont damage the ground). It's really a detriment to pvp when you are unable to blow holes into other people's bases for raiding purposes. I would really like to see this turned back on. It forces more serious players to protect themselves better.
cooldown timers on teleports. way, way too long. once again, I can see why you would want them that way (keeps people from abusing teleport commands and running from fights) but honestly, dropping the timer to 10 seconds and the cooldown to 1 minute would be more than enough.
-nocheat or similar plugins. I noticed immediately when using /plugins there isn't an anti-cheat plugin which is a big no-no for pvp servers. anyone can google a hacked client and own everyone on a pvp server that doesn't protect itself. as good as the admins are, you can't rely on them 100% of the time because they wont always be around
just a few thoughts I had.
Sep 24, 2012excellent server, mature admins who check for cheaters (including xrayers and pvp hackers).Posted in: PC Servers
The only downside is population seems a tad bit low, but that will change once more people check it out and realize how awesome of a server it is
Sep 24, 2012Stay away from this server. I spent 45 mins *trying* to build a house while an admin continuously trolled me, then he crashed the server by spawning a million villagers in the house I was trying to build, then banned me for no reason.Posted in: PC Servers
Sorry but if you expect players to respect your staff - or even stay on this server, for that matter, your staff needs to grow up.

[optional]What do you think of the server?: I've hopped around on a few skyblock servers - The last one really ticked me off because I logged in after working on my isle for a few days to find the entire thing GONE - fell straight to the nether and lost anything I had in my inventory. spawn point was in mid-air, had to start over.
This one has been fun. tiny bits of lag spikes here and there, but very playable. I look forward to being able to participate in the event world, and am really interested in having access to co-op mode to invite people to look at my work/help me build for fun or vice versa.

Aug 23, 2012protokon posted a message on [1.2.5] LionCraft - Tekkit || Survival 24/7 availabilityThe server has been moved to a bigger and better host! we now have 75 slots and are beginning to install plugins. right now we just have essentials, will most likely install mcmmo and factions as those are two of my favorite.Posted in: PC Servers
new host IP address!
I will leave the original IP address as the old server is still up for a few weeks for anyone who wants to use it.
I've relaunched my server as a small tekkit survival server. It's vanilla (well, as vanilla as tekkit can get) that may change in the future. currently I have 5 slots as I prefer to have a small server with a handful of people to chat with while playing the game.
