Hello!

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I'm just checking in with a short list of important updates that I wanted to write about to make sure everyone is informed.

Factions
  • Water protected Chests & Trapped Chests can be destroyed by normal TNT explosions
    • This is a counter-balance to our previous update, where we made various fixes to creeper eggs, one of which made it no longer possible to spawn creepers between the gaps in chests. This means creeper eggs can't be used against water protected chests, but cannoning them should now be easier than before.

Cannon Testing

A lot of work went into updating the cannon server recently, a complete update of plugins and server software, of which the following are notable:
  • WorldEdit should now be considerably faster than previously
  • Fixed an issue...

Hello!

Just checking in with a few fixes relating to creeper eggs:
  • Right-clicking a spawner with a creeper egg will now correctly spawn the creeper instead of throwing a weird permission error
  • Creeper egg placement should now be glitch-free, it was previously being inhibited by our overaggressive freecam patch
  • Creepers ignited by players with flint and steel will now correctly attempt to blow up spawners, requiring the player to pay any applicable spawner taxes, same as last map
Also damage from Deadeye bows can no longer exceed damage from bows without the enchantment.

That's all for now. I hope everyone is enjoying season 2 so far. ChanchoBowl X is starting today and I look forward to seeing a lot of you there :)

Hello!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. We're a week into season 2 now, so everyone should have completed their base. If you haven't yet finished, you have until tomorrow.

TNT will be enabled Sunday (that's tomorrow!) at 7 PM EST.

Also, I'm aware of a number of issues plaguing PVP right now, especially reports of instances of broken damage with Strength potions and Deadeye enchant. These issues are being looked into.

Edit: TNT is enabled now!
