Just checking in with a small update to our Factions plugin.

We've added the player's power next to their name in the faction info, also the faction role and title have been highlighted gray and dark gray to draw more attention and also blend in less with the player's name.

We are imposing a 20 chunk buffer limit to all faction claims. This means that from the center of your base, you may not have more than 20 consecutive claims that would require people to cannon from over 20 chunks away.

Unofficially this has sort of always been the case, now we're making it official. Please bring to the attention of myself or RagingDouche any excessive buffer claims, but as far as we're aware this currently does not affect anyone.

There was an incident recently between two factions started by an outsider using a glitch to accept teleport requests into enemy land.

From now on, teleports into neutral or enemy land will be automatically blocked except when:
  1. It is a party teleport (using the /ptp command)
  2. and the person accepting the party teleport (whoever is doing /ptp accept) must have one of these relationships with the target faction land:
    • is in the faction
    • is an ally
    • is truced
This effectively means that even if people have a home set inside of your base, they can't go back to it unless they're allied, truced, or someone else who is allied/truced or in your faction accepts a party teleport.

These changes should stop a handful of teleport glitches while still allowing for inside raids through betrayal. Oh, and party teleport cooldowns have been reduced from 2 minutes to 30...

As you may know, we recently enabled Ender pearls in the WarZone, however this has caused some issues with people being able to spam them despite a 5 second cooldown.

As of now, Ender pearl cooldown has been adjusted within WarZone from 5 seconds to 10 seconds. They will continue to have a 5 second cooldown everywhere else.

Hey all,

Checking in with you again with more gameplay changes. Recently players have been taking advantage of certain commands to evade loss of items during combat.

RagingDouche and I are very much against the idea of people doing this. We believe that there should be a risk factor associated with entering combat.

As of now the following commands (in addition to the already disabled /f home) are now disabled within 32 blocks of an enemy:
  • home
  • spawn
  • tpa
  • suicide
  • warp
  • back
  • ci
  • clearinventory
  • arena
  • mobarena
  • ma
This restriction does not apply when either you or your enemy are in SafeZone and the range of this restriction is reduced to 16 blocks when issuing commands...
