July Fountain Challenge

As promised here are some more details on how and when they will be judged...

Judging will take place on Saturday 3rd August, sometime in the afternoon.

Entries will be judged by DiggyWig, DigginChickin and 3-6 other random players chosen on the day.

Each judge will make a first and second choice, being selected as a judges first choice will get you 10 points, second choice will get you 5 points, all your points will then be added up to get your basic score.

As well as the basic score bonus points will be awarded for:

Best fountain name - 10 bonus points
Most unique build - 10 bonus points
Most interesting use of materials - 10 bonus points

For the bonus points each judge will get to cast a single vote for each category, the fountain with the most votes in each category will get the points, or they will be split in the case of a draw.

Once all the votes are in, I will add up everyones points and post details here, the winners name will also be displayed on one of the boards at spawn and images of the builds will be posted here and on the Technic Forums!

Remember the fountains can use water, lava or a mix of the two!

The winning entries will also be offered a choice of prizes!

Entries may be disqualified if they cause excessive lag!

To enter you need to send the name/s of the player/s entering the fountain, the name you have given your it and coordinates the judges should teleport to when judging. This information can be sent either by skype (DiggyWig or DigginChickin) or e-mail ( but must be received by midnight on Friday 2nd August for your entry to be included.

I'm looking forward to seeing what you all come up with!

ComputerCraft & Lockette

As of this morning ComputerCraft Computers (ID 207) & Disk Drives (ID 208) can be locked using Lockette!

The exp received for killing another player in the PvP arena and Marble End has also been increased from 30 to 40 and the exp for killing cave spiders has been increased from 10 to 15.

Finally I'm also testing a (hopefully) lag free way to stop water flow within the spawn region unless it's placed by an Admin, if the tests go well over the next few days this will become permanent.

Update 13th July 12:00:

The /stack command has also been added to the commands page.
New Builder rank will be able to use /stack to stack all stackable inventory items, Member rank or above will be able to stack any inventory items, even those that do not usually stack!
