Slight change of plans

MTPetey aOwner posted Wed at 6:50

So, we have a problem. First, some background. We have the Server, which is to say, the Mo' Cretures Server. It is the actual game world, and everything related to it. Then we have the server (lowercase S), which is the actual machine the game runs on. I call it a server, although it is technically a desktop PC with Windows 10 Pro. I know how to set it up to basically the same as a Windows server.

The issue is the server stopped working last night (July 18th). After a lot of testing I determined the primary hard drive is starting to fail. Serveral sectors (basically the small sections of a hard drive disk) are damaged. They are mostly early sectors, which contain 1) the Windows system files, and 2) the Mo' Creatures Server. The Windows install is shot. No fixing it. The Mo' Creatures server I am not sure about yet. Based on the the work I've done so far, if there is damage, it should only be some files. I won't know for sure for a while, partially because I have stuff I prioritize over roaming around the map, and trying to test player files. So, in the mean time, I am going to move forward with are other plans.

To start, I am going to put together a 1.12 server for us to play on. I am choosing this purely because I can put it together in under a day, and 1.12 has plenty of stuff and blocks to play with that aren't in 1.7.10. I will then start trying to figure out setting up a 1.10 Mo' Creatures Server. As I said before, I do not know exactly what I am doing in that regard, so I do not have an ETA on that. If people want, I might even leave both up since, the other stuff I used the server for are out of comission anyways.

The modified rules for the 1.12 server:

1) If you have questions about the game, check the official Minecraft Wiki*. (used to say Mo' Creatures, but changed for relevance)
2) No movement Mods / Cheats
3) No x-ray mods or texture packs
4) No griefing, no pvp (PVP will be allowed for the time being, but no griefing, and iirc, you can't kill people in their own region)
5) No scamming
6) No spam, caps, or swearing
7) No stealing or killing tamed pets (this now includes animals in a fenced in area)
8) Don't ask for ranks, items, or animals
9) Animals will not be refunded except in designated circumstances (Rule no longer seems relevant
10) Don't use inappropriate skins, names, or nametags
11) Respect the staff and other players
12) No disciminatory remarks or actions* (used to just be racism and sexism, but expanded to include other groups as the mods deam fit)
13) Pet limit is 25 per player for builders; Diamond Contributors & up may have 5 additional pets. (The craftbukkit spawning seen on a private server some of us used recently seems to make this irrelevant. Go nuts)
14) Build at least 1000 blocks away from spawn (I am actually going to let people help fill out stuff near spawn like on the original server. Any things deemed hideous will be removed though)
15) English in Global Chat (within reason)
16) Use /me or /action ONLY for reporting active crime or official server functions.
17) To move, you must have prior permission from a Mod & have a good reason
18) Houses owned by players who have been inactive for more than 30 days can be removed by a mod (posted long term absence notices will not result in deletion). (No reason to enforce this rule for the time being)
19) This is a kid friendly server. Don't talk about adult themes.
20) Do not advertise other Minecraft servers (mentioning =/= advertising)
21) No invisibility potion usage without permission (Permission is hereby granted for the Nether, the End, Sea Temples, and Mansions)
22) Avoid creating drama by spreading rumors or badmouthing other players or staff
23) Avoid settling within 100 blocks of another player, unless you have their permission, or unless you are in a town or settlement.
24) Branch mining is allowed on your own property or under the ocean floor ONLY.
25) Open pit mines cannot be made closer than 100 blocks from another players region, must leave the top 3-4 surface blocks intact, and must be on land specifically claimed by you.
26) Use of AFK machines is not allowed by players OR staff. (No longer seems relevant due to server performance, but do not complain if you are using one during a server restart or other interruption)
27) Do not use chat clients (MineChat) or similar clients that log you in without you actually playing the game. The only exception is the dynmap, since it does not log your character in. (This will result in a swift IP ban from me)
28) The server rules also apply to the forums

I have started a poll in the Server Suggestions subforum, regarding potentially making a new, more up to date Mo' Creatures server. I have also included the possibility of ditching Mo' Creatures and going straight to 1.12. I have including arguments for and against in the thread. I have also included the option to vote for more than one answer.

Also, my apologies for maintaining radio silence for so long. Been busy with IRL stuff. Mostly health and work related.

Domain Name Issue fixed

MTPetey aOwner posted Jan 2, 17

It has come to my attention that mc.mocreaturescommunity,org hasn't been working for... months. I had no idea because I've 1) been busy, and 2) hadn't had a reason to actually test it. To make things simple, I forgot to hit the check boxes necessary for the domain to always point at the correct server. The mistake has been corrected. You may need to restart your computer or flush your dns (google this is needed) to be able to use the domain name again. In a related note, I am no longer paying for mtpetey.ddns.net, so while it works right now, he may stop working at any point in the future. In the future, you can use mtpetey,com instead.

Happy new year,

Petey

Donation options change

MTPetey aOwner posted Jul 26, 16

At the suggestion of our associates at UBP, the paypal donation button and link have been changed to go to my own paypal instead of there's. This is because the server, teamspeak, domain names, etc. are now being hosted and paid for by me, instead of them. I will insure donations are closely monitored, with records showing what the donated money is used for. They may be used for things such as paying for the website, paying for hardware improvements, or services directly benefitting the Mo' Creatures Community. If at anytime following the first donation (which we do not actually know when that will be), any senior staff member (i.e. moderator) or player (i.e. donor) can ask for a report on our finances which will be provided within 24 hours, per the established staff rules and responsibilities. I believe the actual thread with this information says 3 days, but that was because the information had to be gotten from UBP. That delay is no longer necessary. Others can request this information but I will not provide an exact ETA on when that information will be made available. It will be purely at my convenience. Other than that, nothing has really changed.

Domain names working again

MTPetey aOwner posted Jul 18, 16

Because of a number of issues, it took longer than expected to get the mocreaturescommunity.org domain name working again. A lot of stuff happened behind the scenes and long story short, its working again. As an added bonus, you can now use the mc.mocreaturescommunity.org domain name for the teamspeak as well. This is because both the server and teamspeak are now hosted from the same location, and magic.
