Teamspeak Change (again)

MTPetey aOwner posted Dec 7, 15

The Teamspeak was costing the community (ie mostly Catbox and occasionally myself) $60 a year. With my new internet working better than expected, and realizing that we could have a TS with more slots for free, I decided to host a teamspeak server myself.

As we saw earlier today, sometimes unexpected issues occur with internet connection or what have you. Still, free is free, so we'll try it for a while. IP is mtpetey.ddns.net. I'm going to try to get Elwood to set up ts.mocreaturescommunity.org for the teamspeak, and jc.mocreaturescommunity.org for the JurassiCraft server.

Jurassic Craft Server

MTPetey aOwner posted Dec 2, 15

As many already know, we now have a working server with JurassiCraft. At the request of players and staff, several other mods have been added. This limitations on building seem to be practically non-existant. Anyone who gets bored would have to have serious ADHD. Based on the popularity, it seems the server will be here to stay. To make things easier, I have put all of the mods into a zip file. I have also included some useful mods that I recommend using for a better experience. As always, Mo' Creatures and CMS have to be downloaded from the official source, as requested by Dr. Zhark.

The list of mods are:

Carpenters Blocks

Chocolate Quest

Colored Water (currently not being used on the server due to unforseen issues)

Forge Multipart

JurassiCraft and LLibrary

Lycanites

Opals Plus

Optifine

ThaumCraft

TooManyItems (should not be used if you already have NEI

ZyinsHUD

Disclaimer: I have this running on my main computer. The computer has a 3.2 GHz i5 processor, 16GBs of RAM, and I recently got 75mbps internet. The majority of the time, there should be no issues with excessive lag (in fact, afaik the tps hasn't gone down at all yet). It is possible however if I'm doing any CPU intensive tasks. Again, if there is significant interest, I'll take the steps necessary to make sure it doesn't happen.

MousePawGirl/MouseTail OfficerDonor Cant find where to install carpenter blocks, can someone tell me?
__Kelly__ Donor this is really neat petey. i am really enjoying it. if you want it to be sort of like ark. you should try the thirst mod...
Sunbird Mini-ModDonor Sounds interesting. I'll check it out

New staff title: Super-Mod

MTPetey aOwner posted Sep 16, 15

Most people here are familiar with the staff ranks, although not everyone knows exactly what their responsibilities are. We try outrbest to match staff to the responsibilities they are best suited for. Sometimes people are put into positions that are more in line with the immediate needs of the server than where they fit best.

Several months ago we were in a position where there were no active MIB, and I was doing all the Owner responsibilities, as well as the MIB work, and still trying to do Moderator stuff when none were online. Lets just say stress levels were high at times. That is part of what lead to DazzlingGarnet (aka Derkwizzerds) being promoted to MIB as soon as he inquired about it. TryHardTroll was also put on the fast track to being made MIB at that time. They have both been very useful in that postion, but looking at the list of responsibilities below, TryHard is significantly more skilled for 1-6, while Derk seems to have a nack for 7-12. Both are exeptional at number 13. Keeping this in mind, we are now asking Derk to concentrate on those areas as well as training staff, and helping to make sure needs of the server are being met in terms of available staff, resources, etc. There may be some smaller details worked out later. So, technically, he's still in the same position and level of authority, but has a cool new title that better reflects the duties we want him to concentrate on.

1) monitor and adjust server as necessary to maintain best performance.
2) install, remove, or modify plugin files or config files as necessary to insure continued function.
3) provide oversight, advice, and mitigation for any event or activity which may adversely affect the server or game play.
4) Perform timely backups, remove old files to stay within size limits, search for updates for all files in use frequently.
5) Install updates after checking to insure that updates will not generate server errors.
6) identify new plugins/mods which may be useful/entertaining/beneficial to the server.
7) monitor Officers, Mini-Mods, Moderators, and Event_Masters for rule compliance.
:sick: ban, demote, mute, or temp-ban those individuals breaking the server rules.
9) monitor the console to track activity and assign Officers/Mini-Mods/Moderators to investigate as indicated.
10) pass copies of the log to the server owner/s upon request.
11) mitigate disputes between senior players and Owner/s.
12) Design, build, or implement improvements/adaptions/constructs that support the server in a long-term, sustainability sense.
13) Be cool, hang out, drink cold ones, wear dark glass, and zap people so they are only left with the dim realization that you are cool, without remembering the details.
14) execute temporary or permanent bans (subject to Owner approval) of players or staff as necessary to insure server operations are not impacted.

Ark: Survival Evolved

MTPetey aOwner posted Jul 22, 15

I am sure a lot of you have heard of the new game Ark. It does require higher specs than minecraft, but it's a lot of fun. United Base Players now has an Ark server up and running, which we are all encouraged to use. The information for it is now on the Ark page. Sometimes we are in the Mo' Creatures Teamspeak, and sometimes we are in UBP's Teamspeak. Feel free to connect. Their teamspeak no longer needs a password or port. Just connect using ts3.unitedbaseplayers.org.

__Kelly__ Donor i am thinking about trying this game.
catbox01 LegacyDonor Best bet is now to let the Steam servers list for Ark load totally, as there are tons of new servers. Make sure you are ...
Sunbird Mini-ModDonor It's a lot harder than troll's server (sorry troll) before I even reached level 2, in the spawn point, I saw ...

For those who are not aware, election plans have been postponed due to scheduling conflicts. I've been less active due to starting a new job, which requires me to work 4-5 nights a week, and family stuff that's been going on. Last I heard from Kingtru, he was off in Europe somewhere, and Troll suddenly got a lot busier. I am still in contact with all the senior staff, so I am aware of anything major that happens. I want everyone to keep in mind that moderators, event staff, and especially the MIB are capable of handling 99% of issues that come up. I trust them and will support any reasonable decisions they make in my absence.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All great things have a beginning, and an end. The server has been through a lot during my tenure as owner, and I think it's finally how I wanted it to be. I always said I was not the best at everything. I like to think that how I ran things reflected that. I always tried to let people have control over certain aspects of the server and the community, especially where their skills exceeded my own. Now, the server is running fairly well. The events have their own world. Possibilities for PVP have been implemented, even if we haven't gotten all of it 100% worked out yet. The main issues with the server that I wanted to fix have all been fixed. Now that the server is in a good way, I think it's time to let someone else take over. I have talked about it a bit the past few weeks, and now I think it's time to make it happen. Hopefully the next owner can do the things I could not or just was not very good at.

For those that are not aware, our rules state that when an Owner is ready to step down, or is removed by agreement of UBP and the MIB, the senior staff get to choose who among them will run for Owner, and then all staff, and all bedrock donors get to vote on who is going to be the next Owner. I will open up candidacy selection now, and during the rest of May, we will be preparing for the election. I want to have the actual voting take place during the first two weeks of June, and during the rest of that month we will complete the ownership transition.

What about me, you might ask. When an Owner steps down, they have two choices. They can take a retirement title, or they can go back to being staff. Personally, I am going to go back to being a senior staff member. Either Moderator or MIB, depending on where the other senior staff think I am needed most.

Taosis Thank you so much for everything you've done for the server, Petey! You were a good owner.
pigeonpigface Your awesome Petey great job with the server!
saphireslayer21 Donor Sorry for being one of the ones keeping you on your toes petey, you've done a great job:)
