This web is dead. Go to our all new web site at thatsnotacreeper.com


 

Finally got around to making a map of my area

Very simple to do, create you map, put some item frames on a wall then arrange maps like a jigsaw puzzle.

Update on the new site

Apr 24, 2015 9:11 PM. Posted by

For all those interested the new site should be up very soon. I’m hoping this weekend though there is still a bit to do so that’s more of a hope date then a firm date.

If you want a sneak peek at what the new site looks like then enjoy:

Site-1 Site-2

As you can see, the general look is the same but what you’ll be able to do on the site is going to be a lot better.

EDIT: Didn’t quite get it all done this weekend but should only be another day or so until we’re good to go with the new site. For now enjoy another sneak peak of what I spent some of today working on:

In Game Purchases

Yes, you’re reading that page right. People will be able to go to that page and click ‘Promote Me!’ to move up the ranks automatically. No more needing to wait for someone to be online to do it. Also, remember when I said VIP subscriptions will eventually be automatic (i.e. People pay and they’re promoted in game straight away)? That’s set up on the new site too. Turns out “eventually” meant “instantly”. :p


 

And another new VIP

Well not totally new, we used to have this a couple of years ago until it stopped working.

2015-04-13_19.53.10
Showcasestandalone – allows you to have floating/rotating items for display.

Only two commands needed, ‘scs display’ (you have to hold the item first) and ‘scs remove’, just follow the prompts. You can decorate your shop with flashy, floating & rotating items, use them in your base to impress your visitors.

Whatever you use them for, everyone will know you are a VIP+++ player (yes VIP+++ or Timelord only), its about time the VIP+++ players got something new. Have look in the player shop to see how good they look.


 

Hi there!

Web site is back, minecraft server is not. Keep watching for an update.

09:03 minecraft is back


 

Server is offline

Not sure whats going on, but will be back online asap.

Update: Server is back (even though the web site says its not) The SSD was full, I deleted 18G of temp files, unfortunately your inventory is probably going to be lost and you will login at spawn.

Want your lost items replaced? See rule 4

Update2: Invetory restored..nothing to see, move along

 Note: The live map will be changed to low res, the current hi-res map of the main world is using 40Gb, and we just dont have the space to justify that.


 

Update on the change to vBulletin

Apr 1, 2015 12:54 PM. Posted by

Just wanted to give everyone an update and a bit more info on where things are at regarding the change over to vBulletin.

The vBulletin license I bought for the site was a second hand one so rather than the usual ‘Buy -> Pay -> Here’s the license’ happening almost instantly it was a more drawn out process (a full week from buying the license from the person selling it to vBulletin actually transferring it to me). On the plus side it was half the price of a new license. The license was finally transferred to me this morning so things can finally start moving.

Setting it up won’t be an over night thing, it’ll take some time for me to get everything sorted but I’ll work on getting it online as soon as I can.

So the big question you may (or may not) be asking is why change?

vBulletin is much more community oriented than WordPress. WordPress is basically designed for just news/blogging. vBulletin started out as forum software and has since developed into a more complete package for news and other content as well as forums. Since vBulletin is designed for people to register we won’t have issues like we’ve had in the past where WordPress would delete accounts.

There are some features, such as the subscription feature in vBulletin, that I believe I will be able to link with the minecraft server a lot easier so that (eventually) VIP promotions will be automatic rather than needing an admin online to promote people.

Basically I honestly feel that vBulletin will be better for the site & server and more importantly the people using the site & server i.e. you.

If you have any suggestions for things you want to see on the site/forum or whatever just let us know and we’ll see what we can do.


 

News update

Donation $ reserve for server costs
You may (or not) have noticed the donation money we have in reserve for server costs  has taken a bit of a hit as GM2K and I have decided to spend some money on an island in the pacific…no wait, that’s the other plan..I mean on a license for a real web forum, vbulletin. This will allow GM to code all sorts of cool plugins for the server, that’s what he says anyway. Perhaps he has just scammed us all?
Thinking

Economy change
If a chest shop runs out of stock it will automatically be removed, ie keep checking that your chests have stock in them

There is a very small change to server donations for VIP.

$10 donation will get you VIP for 3 months (no change)
$20 donation will get VIP for 9 months (again..no change for most people)
$50 donation and you will become a VIP+++ lifetime player (also no change). You will never be deleted, always considered an active player even if you never return, we will just assume you are off exploring in the Farlands and that one day you will return. Your name, title/rank, tardis, home etc will stay and be protected forever (unless there is a world reset). All VIP’s have a permanent giant stature, each one created by Jay. (unless you are a banned VIP and your name will be forever hightlighted in red on the VIP page for attempting to steal and/or grief)

The difference is if you donate $10 a second time, you don’t automatically get another 6 months you get 3 months. Most VIP’s donate at least twice so you wont be paying any more.


I’m looking at setting up a monthly subscription through Patreon for $4.00 per month, which can be cancelled at any time. Slightly more expensive but at $4 you too can have VIP in your title to show your support for the server costs. I’ll post the details in the next few days

Sorry, all out of steak knives with this special offer.

 NOTE: VIP+++ it’s a lot of money but I cant imagine this ever changing.


 

Server economy page update

Mar 18, 2015 2:33 PM. Posted by

The following has been added to the www.thatsnotacreeper.com/server-economy/ page

‘You can buy a plot at spawn to setup your  own shop, its not for your base or storage area. Strictly a shop to buy and sell to and from other players. Cost is $5000, you can sell it back to the city for 75%. You cant sell the land to other players.’
