#55065 Complete Server Reset - Unknown Date

Posted by bob7l on 11 October 2013 - 05:35 AM

Sadly due to the large amounts of complaints and attempted disputes my initial 1.7 reset plan will be discontinued... 

 

My initial plan:

 - Buy advertisements with google (Pre-planned, got good deals)

 - Let the server die (Force people to miss MB)

 - Slowly build server spawn + add more minigames on private server

 - On the release of 1.7, push all advertisements, and prelaunched videos

 - Massive new player base + old players returning for fun

 

 

The plan would've worked great, but to many people started complaining and disputing so i doubt this will be possible. Why didn't i tell anyone? I actually told a lot of people without thinking, but like i said above.. It was suppose to be more of a surprise.

 

 

 

Now... Here is my new plan (Not fully thought out):

 - Spam UTube videos

 - Slowly make spawn in a private server

 - On the release of 1.7, push all advertisements, and prelaunched videos

 

 

 

Now.. This may only get a few new playerss... But it's better then nothing.. I may have to push this plan into action sooner then the 1.7 release in order to evade annoying disputes. 

 

-- Is this problem fixable? Nope.. Waay to many disputes, all the income for advertisements has been taken away by paypals bullshit. 

-- How many players to expect? It's possible the plan will be successful.. It depends on how many members participate in the minebuilders renewal. 

 

 

 

Also - as a side note: If you don't like how the server is, please either wait until the renewal, or just leave. I don't want anymore negative posts.. All you're doing is damaging the servers player base even more.. 

 

 

 

How to participate in the renewal:

Since the renewal will need more then just a few players to plan out and put into action, I'll need a few builds/designers to help design / fix the area. We need to build it for appearance and simplify everything.. 

 

Send an email to my yahoo ([email protected]) with the following filled out. If you are picked, you will be whitelisted at (minebuilders.me:25579) - wont be up until Saturday or Sunday.

#5784 Complete Server Reset

Posted by bob7l on 09 July 2013 - 12:58 AM

  Yes, the time has come for a complete server reset! You've probably noticed how our world is more like a barren wasteland with no trees, vegetation, and just a bunch of randomly displaced blocks. Yes, these abnormal block formations could probably be easy fixed by regenerating various chunks but this certainly isn't the only issue we're facing at the moment. LWC is also acting up, causing a lot of item/material loss from exploits and glitches. Not only is it failing to protect our items, it's also eating up the servers memory causing massive lag and TPS drops. I've decided to edit lockettes source and make it more automated, so you wont need to place those annoying signs every time you put down a chest. This is the only way i can avoid removing more things from the game like hoppers.

 

 

Plugins most likely being removed:

 - AcientGates (I think i might just modify this, it's using up a lot of resources!)

 - WorldGuard (I'm going to edit this, not remove it)

 - LWC (Horrible plugin, replacing with Lockette)

 - GunWarZ (Not used, will replace in future)




#27457 PVP adjustments

Posted by bob7l on 14 August 2013 - 03:18 AM

So I've noticed a LARGE amount of people PVP-Logging lately and to be honest I'm getting annoyed by it. Another server owner paid me some cash to develop a plugin against these pvp loggers, and cheaters (Gamemode pvp, vanish pvp, ect). Lucky, he didn't mind if i used it on my server as-well (Double win!).

 

 

Now, donors are on the top of the food chain on this server, it's pretty clear.. So! I've decided to ounce again allow death drops from those pesky donors. Under one condition! All donor items will now be TAGGED with their name. If a large quantity of items are found on a player under your username, you WILL be punished and possibly perm banned. Don't screw this up for everyone donors!




#74563 So We Merged Now What?

Posted by darkaln on 24 November 2013 - 09:01 AM

Hello guys,

 

    So the long awaited merge is finally underway. Me and bob7l have successfully merged 2 servers into one which involved (pex merging, authme sql tables merging etc..). Bear in mind that the merge is not completely done. We have just so far reached a stage where people can connect to all the servers, however you will notice that there are a lot of bugs like (missing commands, minigame spawn and much much more). These problems will be dealt with over the course of the next few days. So please be patient and don't make posts regarding why you don't have access to certain features you were promised. Everything is under control and working great.

 

Hope you guys have a great day.

#186660 -] We've switched server hosts! (Upgraded) [-

Posted by bob7l on 17 November 2014 - 10:35 PM

Server News:

 

As of 11/16/2014 we are no longer using Limestone. After years of usage, their server performance and network has greatly degraded. After all the "lagg waves" we finally decided enough is enough. Limestone is no longer, and will never be, our host!

 

Since running two servers is very difficult because of the hardware and network being different per server, we've decided to buy one giant server and save a little money while doing so. 

 

Specs:

 - Giant Hexicore processor with a high clock speed

 - 64GB DDR4 2133Mhz premium ram

 - 1gbps dedicated network (Up/Down)

 - Unmetered bandwidth (No limit on network usage)

 - x2 120 SSD drives

 

The server is still hosted in the USA, and you should be getting MUCH faster ping time.




#1027 Server declining quickly

Posted by bob7l on 29 June 2013 - 04:59 AM

Most of you have probably already noticed we're only maxing at 80-90 players a week. I blame the inactivity of staff and myself for this mistake and hope to fix this in the future. I've read everyone's suggestions and do plan to make change, especially in staff employment. Sadly, I'm only one person and cannot resurrect this server without the help of the community. One of the biggest problems we're having is advertisements. Yes we get about 3-5 new videos a week but they simply are not being viewed by a crowd. A new recent issue was introduced this month; money. We're loosing more and more from disputions and are no longer gaining profits on a daily basis. I cannot guarantee a future minebuilders without your support and hope you can all pitch in and make a video, post on some forums, or maybe chip in and donate an extra $5!

 

 

How to get involved!

 -:- Make a youtube video

 -:- Post about us on some minecraft forums!

 -:- Donate?

 -:- Apply for staff positions!

 -:- Help members




#185063 I'm back

Posted by Markus on 08 November 2014 - 10:09 AM

Hi guys,

 

After a long unfortunate hiatus, I have returned. Some of you may remember me and I'm grateful that you've accepted me back, even after all this time. 

 

For those of you who don't know me, I'm Markus! I'll mainly be on the server with you guys/staff rather than coding/maintaining/updating the server, it always seemed to work with me, Bob and Dark- so I don't think that should change. I will do my very best to remain active, however, I do have a lot of commitments outside of MB, which alas, will usually take priority.

 

Looking forward to my return? Or hate me already? Follow this link to a topic in the 'General' section and comment on this news:

#214823 Survival 1.8.6 Update News

Posted by bob7l on 07 July 2015 - 08:17 AM

The new survival server is almost ready to be released so i decided to make a quick write up on the updated content. The server is not exactly how any of you had in mind, so i highly recommend you fully read this entire post..

 

 

Donors:

Due to the massive abuse by donors, we were forced to implement some further limitations. But! Instead of removing commands, we decided to create an entire new world dedicated to donors. You'll be able to do virtually anything in the donor world and giving your non-donor friends items is no longer prohibited. Anyone can go to a donor world, just donors have much more power then anyone else. Donors can also go to the vanilla world, but will have a selected few commands. I understand a lot of you will most likely be pissed off about this decision, but it was  the only thing darkaln and i were willing to do. 

 

 

Economy:

We've decided to go towards a more realistic economy this time seeing as donors will no longer be able to destroy it. It's entirely dynamic rather then just static prices written on signs. Selling more items will result in a decrease item value, while buying more items will result in the price increasing. Both sell/buy max values are capped to insure the market doesn't go absolutely insane. 




#15 Welcome to the new forums!

Posted by bob7l on 26 June 2013 - 10:54 PM

The forums have finally been reset! I tried my best to provide as many cool features, and cool resources for your use. Hopefully you got my warning 2 months ago and were able to save your stuff!

#214366 ~Survival updating to 1.8.6~

Posted by bob7l on 28 June 2015 - 06:45 AM

Soon we'll turn the new 1.8.6 survival server public. It consists of mainly the same plugins and everyone will keep their rank. I plan on adding some more features like a new player PVP timer, possibly new mob arena, PVP arenas (Based on your equipment), and more. Hopefully i wont have to block any of the new 1.8 features, but as always.. If you abuse the new features, they will be sadly removed :(

 

 

Currently i've updated all the plugins (Even the ones that required me to manually update myself), and am awaiting Darkaln for further plans on the map. Hopefully we'll be able to turn survival into an enjoyable server once more.

#73186 Merge Plans

Posted by bob7l on 21 November 2013 - 02:21 AM

Seeing as most of you are starting rumors.. I've decided to post the information that may go into effect after the merge. 

 

 

Survival Server: Darkaln seems to want to host it on his server, that means the map will be reseting (again...). We've come to conclusion that my spawn + minigames best suit the survival server and will be used again.

 

Donations: Darkaln wants to use his ranks as he feels I charge to little (I do..). Soo he's "merging" the current donators into his donor ranks. It's possible you'll either loose commands, or gain commands. If you feel this is stupid, talk to darkaln about it.. 

 

Server variety: We're looking to have around 9 different servers max. This includes: Minigames, Hungergames, SkyWarZ, Wasteland, Giants Survival, Basic survival, and maybe a few more. 

 

Staff: I have no clue about this one.. Most of the current staff are completely inactive and i have absolutely no use for them. 

 

ELCHIEN: It's possible we'll host his server so you can have a bit more fun. He might even code some private plugins. 

 

 




#7 Advertiser Application format

Posted by bob7l on 26 June 2013 - 10:34 PM

Advertiser Rank Protocols

 

It's a Free-Rank and easy to get, but with additional requirements. The requirements might needed to downloaded a few programs and such, and we hope that your computer can handle recording. The Advertiser Rank is based on people who make YouTube Videos, why is it so important you ask? Well, people who made videos help us to get more people to our server. Also, more donations to our server, the more people we get the better. To sum up, Advertiser Rank is easy to get, just follow the requirements and you'll be fine. Videos must be server specific !

 

 

 

The Format

 

IGN [In-Game-Name]:

YouTube Link:

Why do you want to be Advertiser?:

Hours available:

I agree to all terms: [Put a "x" between '[ and '].

 

[ ] I have 302+ Views.

[ ] I briefly explain the plugins in the server.

[ ] My video isn't about me typing in-game, only I commentate or added annotations.

[ ] I have liked the Minebuilders Facebook page - Link

 

 

 

More Info

 

The video has to be regarding the specific server only, you cannot use the same video made for another server example giants to get ranked on this server.

 

The video has to be edited, add music, add annotations, or whatever to make the video to be really interesting.

 

It has to be ONLY a YouTube Video, not anything else! If you put anything else besides making a Youtube Video, it will be denied. In other words, YouTube Video is the ONLY requirement to get Advertiser!

 

The video has to shown without typing! In other words, you can't make a video of you typing and explaining things. You can ONLY commentate your YouTube Video about our server, if you don't want to commentate, then you can use annotations/dialogue. If shown of you typing in the video, we would deny it quickly.

 

The video ALSO has to explain the Plugins! You can explain 1-2 sentences about the Plugin. If not, you will be denied.

 

You cannot do slideshows or do pictures. However, Slideshows can show highlights of the Server [Plugins, PvPing, Builds, etc] something that is interesting.

 

The commands for Advertiser is /heal and /hat. The Heal is a 1 minute cool down, and the hat is used for wearing a block on top of your head, like you hold out a dirt and you do /hat.

 

To get Advertiser you need 302+ views to get ranked up. This is to avoid people from view botting their application.




#360277 Future RUSTv2 wipe news

Posted by bob7l on 03 April 2017 - 12:25 AM

Before i even begin talking about the new wipe mechanics: The current RUST map is NOT wiping soon. We still have a lot of work ahead of us and we've yet to even begin on it. So do NOT ask/demand for a wipe because it's not going to speed up the process.. 

 

 

Land Reserve System:

This is a new system that'll prevent players from building on your land for about 1-2 days after a reset. This means you have plenty of time to build a base without having to deal with pesky players griefing you. Once the 1-2 days are up (Still not sure on how long), your claimed land becomes PUBLIC DOMAIN meaning anyone can once more build or grief. 

 

In order to reserve land, you must donate for it. http://minebuilders....category/731870

 

The reserved land must consist of the following:

- CANNOT be someones current land. For example, claiming YoussofHD's current house. This is to prevent people from claiming eachothers bases (Obviously..)

- CANNOT be larger then your current base. If you do not have a current base, we'll make an estimate depending on a few factors such as your team size and of course the location of the claim

 

Commands:

- /reserve add <name> (Adds a user to your plot of land)

- /reserve view (View the details of your reserve)

- /reserve remove <name> (Remove a user from your plot of land)

 

 

 

END OF THE WORLD:

Rather then simply resetting the server on a random day, I've decided to implement a chaotic new system that'll give everyone P4 PP3 MAXED kevlar and various other utilities on the last day of the map. That should be pretty.... Interesting.. 




#147739 Strict action against advertisers !

Posted by bob7l on 24 June 2014 - 01:10 AM

Please also beware.. Using a hack client is not only AGAINST THE RULES on this server, but your also putting a HUGE risk of having your account stolen, or keylogged. NEVER download a hackclient! They are more dangerous then you think. 




#175607 Updating to 1.8 information

Posted by bob7l on 06 September 2014 - 11:11 PM

Mojang recently released a new 1.8 version of minecraft. This build contains both new features and many bug fixes. If you don't already know about it, read more here: http://mcupdate.tumb...ountiful-update

 

 

Now onto minebuilders... Bukkit seems to have been discontinued due to a recent DMCA ruling from Wesley Wolfe. Distribution of bukkit is no longer allowed on both github, and bukkit meaning there will be no more updates. Because of this, we will not be able to update to 1.8 any time soon. HOPEFULLY mojang will take ownership of bukkit and continue the project but it's possible they wont. This does NOT mean minebuilders will shut down, but does imply we wont be running 1.8+ builds anytime soon so don't bother updating your launcher. We also will NOT be accepting 1.8 clients due to all the changes in the client code. If you've already upgraded, downgrade.

 

 

Btw - 1.8 isn't that cool so don't freak out.. I'll try to push some more content out for plugins (Maps, plugins, material), but i've been very busy so i can't give a proper estimated time, 

 

 




#171440 Looong Downtime :/

Posted by darkaln on 23 August 2014 - 08:37 PM

Hello Minebuilders,

Extremely sorry for the downtime. Our hub server had crashed due to Java heap space error (nothing to worry about) and I was not in a position to come online for the last two days. I have fixed the issue and have also added an auto restart script in case something like this happens in future.

#147733 Strict action against advertisers !

Posted by darkaln on 24 June 2014 - 12:34 AM

Hello Minebuilders,

 

         Recently its come to my notice that tons of MB accounts are getting hacked daily. I am getting countless requests of resetting accounts due to changed passwords. Our user database is very highly secure and cannot be hacked so easily. All account passwords are stored in salted SHA-256 hash format. Then how is it possible for this many accounts to get hacked?

 

         Cracked Minecraft servers use an authentication system (we use Authme) to enable password protection on your accounts. Some servers do not encrypt their member passwords and keep them as PLAINTEXT hence they can get info on every password used by their members who have registered on their server. These so called hackers have created their own server and then they come on MB chat and advertise to try and get people to join with offers like, I will give you OP etc.. The unsuspecting member joins the server and out of habit registers on the other server with the same password he uses for MB. Once that is done, the hackers have access to your password which they immediately use to login to MB account and change the password.

 

         How to prevent this? The best way is to report any advertisers on the forums and get them banned. DO NOT JOIN ANY SERVER THAT IS ADVERTISED WITHIN MB. Keep different passwords for different servers.

 

         From now onwards, every advertiser will be PERMBANNED from MB if there is proof against him/her. Even if the person is a donor and advertises another server on MB chat, they will be PERMBANNED from Minebuilders. Staff members should use the command, /ibanip name Advertising Permbanned.
