I’ve been seeing a bit of a spam problem happening on the server. Red Protect has some built in spam protection so hopefully that fixes the issue. If all goes well that should be out within the next couple days.
You guys might have noticed that there haven't been any new players joining recently. This is because I have temporarily stopped advertising the server. This because I have decided to remove Towny, and I don't want to advertise the server as Towny if it going to get removed.
Lately I have realized that there are some serious problems with the server as of late and something needs to be done about it. This January I will be dedicated my time to fix these problems. (I am cancelling the rest of the winter island adventure in favor of this. More on that later.) The first, and more major of these problems is the GCW server itself. I have decided that the best solution to this problem is to close the GCW server completely.
Why is it being closed?
For some reason, the database for creative plots was completely wiped. Although the builds are still there, every plot has lost its owner. This means that anybody could claim your plot and completely wipe it. The only way I can fix this is by manually going through all plots and giving back proper ownership to each plot. This isn't a perfect solution though, because I am unable to guarantee that I will get everyone. I have decided the best option is to close GCW completely because it wasn't very popular of a gamemode to begin with. There is also a handful of serious problems with the gamemode.
The second part of the boss hunting update is out. This time, we release 20 new bosses. There are now a total of 60 bosses, 10 of each rarity.
The custom boss section of the wiki has also been completely revamped. Check it out here!
Some of you guys are probably wondering if we will be doing anything for Christmas. The answer is yes. We are working on a quest based adventure map located on a 2k radius island that I created with worldpainter. It is planned to be released some time before christmas. Do not worry if you are on vacation or won't be able to make it for the event, because this map will not be closed, even after christmas! It will be up indefinitely.
