McBlocks 2015 - 01/08/2015 changesSMP
Today we have finally brought you a SMP server. This is the older SMP server from 2011-2013 and is being redone and patched up. We understand this SMP server failed at one point, and we're here now to restore this SMP server to what it used to be, and to hopefully make it fit the needs of all players. Be it a challenging experience to a friendly experience to those not so keen on too big of a survival server.
Over the years, McBlocks has always encouraged a hard smp mode to ensure challenge in survival. The vast majority of you enjoy a challenging SMP to make it fun and exciting, some others we've understood, don't apply here and hence could be one of the reasons SMP hasn't done very well for the past few years. So this time we want to make SMP fun for both people who enjoy challenge and for those who just enjoy SMP being SMP for there to be fun for everyone, and generally, improve the experience of both parties.
This time we are going to try having our main SMP world a fairly decent difficulty, as we understand those players who don't play SMP very often or generally don't enjoy an overwhelming survival experience don't want to start off with too much fuss.
Some of you may remember the Hardcore
map we had on this SMP server from 2013, it was a fairly different SMP experience and had a few anti rules. Griefing/Stealing being one of them. This we will be bringing back and optimising in order to make it more fair and hopefully, bring more content and keep it a challenging and tough experience for those players who are fitter at survival!
It's probable this world in time, will be more rewarding than our normal world to offer variety to this server to not force everyone to have to do the same thing. More types of SMP can hopefully be introduced in the very near future. This server is in active development and is still due many staff discussions, and in order for us to produce more content to suit most players, we are going to need your help as well ours with suggestions
! (Disclaimer: Hardcore in development and should be released within the next few days)
We ask users to try this SMP server, and let us know what you think and how you think we're doing. Please do not hesitate to post suggestions about anything you want to see or just simply, disagree with that may be affecting your experience! We encourage users to post their opinions on SMP to help us make it the best experience we've all had yet, however, under no circumstances
does any user need to share disadvantages of SMP in a rude or negative manner. Any user who fails to comply risks their mcblocks.net account disabled.
We also deeply apologise that this server isn't as completed as was hoped to be at this time, due to personal commitments with the SMP Administration, and the continuous attacks to Mojang have inconvenienced development the past few days.
Currently known caveats
Some commands fault and do not work at all, such as /spawn, /ranks and /rp
There are many unknown caveats with this server at this time, and we would appreciate any user who reports to this topic a problem they've noticed!
Slight change to creative and smp, is that Trusted
has changed back to Trusted
, as we've decided that light red fits in better with the other ranks. No other rank changes are planned at this time.New staff
In other news, please can we all welcome ChimeraofShadows (Delayed_Chimera)
as our new Supervisors of both servers!
