Weekly Update Log - What's New?

Hi Craftvians!

Weekly Update Log is a new post, done every Friday to update players on technical updates on our servers, such as new plugins, permission changes, and what we'd like to do in the future. These will be very short posts. Everything else, such as rank updates and promotions, are still done via our Weekly.

Anyhoo, let's get started!

Network:
Network, as in, what's changed, that includes all of our servers together.
  • Added a global broadcast announcer
    Replaced CraftBlock's announcer with one that works throughout the servers. The plugin allows us to pick which broadcast, such as, information about our enchantment or voting on specific servers, giving us a lot more control.
CraftBlock:
  • Added Daily Bonuses @Mattman096
    Another reason to keep coming to CraftBlock! By continuing logging into our server, you can gain daily bonuses, where rewards are $5K + $1k every day you login. To acquire your rewards, do /db.
  • Vote To Fly now has a 30 Minute length
  • Leaderboards @ /spawn
    I added a ton of stats at spawn this week, and will still continue adding more through next week. There are now top land and residents for towns, top killers / deaths for duels, and a bunch more top stats. Check it out!
  • Less Laggy Spawn?
    This is an issue we've kind of been ignoring for the past year or so. The spawn, while beautiful and will never be replaced, it's laggy, and if someone with a cheap computer dares to teleport to it, I can't imagine them enjoying the experience of loading this beast. I modified entity tracking via our server configuration and totally removed most of the lighting in the spawn. While we have a very dimmed spawn now, it seems to have helped a bit.
  • Various other fixes
    • Replaced duels plugin with a new updated duels plugin, which allowed us to have a stats board at spawn. We're working on new kits for this and hoping to add another arena or two. Let us know if you find any problems, or if you think rewards or kits should be better (When we add them).
Planned:
  • New Ranks Wiki
    We're working on a new rank wiki, that has more information about what you can do on the server. It's looking pretty damn good. We're hoping to release it in the next week or so, but for now, you'll have to deal with our current one.

That's it for now, thanks for reading!
