Casino Slots Change

I've made a quick change to the Tech Slots in the casino, from now the bottom prizes will be scrap boxes rather than exp to add a little more variety.


New Promotion Plugin

The trial of the new promotion system starts today, unfortunately though as a side effect the times shown by /seen & /playtime have had to be reset so we are all starting at 0 again.

If you've missed out on promotion don't worry we will get to you, I'm running the old check every two hours as well for the time being to try and catch everyone.

I'll post more details on the new plugin and what it means for the way promotions work very soon.


I've turned on a feature that will attempt to calculate a players first join date from the main player data file, this will work better for some than others and will always give a slight underestimate at best, however for new players waiting for Member rank this should help get you closer to the usual 1 week! The calculation is individual and will take place the next time the player joins the server (may take several minutes from login).

Down For Maintenance

The server is down for scheduled maintenance as follows:
  1. Apply management interface update - Done.
  2. Full backup/clone - Done.
  3. Disable all portals and set up warps to replace them - Done
  4. Update spawn to fit with changes - Done.
  5. Replace multi-world plugin and set up permissions - Done (took a lot longer than planned!).
  6. Remove all old plugin permissions from main permissions file - Done.
  7. Make several config changes - Done.
  8. Fully test relevant changes - Done.
  9. Install and configure new auto-promote plugin (trial) - Done.
I'll update here as things progress.

Moderators can connect but I may be afk doing config changes and there will be restarts.

The server is now open and the whitelist has been removed!
