    Hello prodigies,

    We’re planning some big updates soon. Some that you might not even notice, and some that you will definitely notice.

    New Dedicated Host

    Ok, so. We’re gonna change to a different host soon, with Linux instead of Windows, this will not have any change in the actual server, but it will mostly affect Developers. So we will need to take some maintenance time to transfer everything over to the new host. (date will be published soon) this will probobly cause a slight rollback because we need a flat file of the DataBase and Server files. We will keep you guys updated before we do so.

    New Factions World

    So, we will soon release a new Factions world generated using a brand new plugin which will create an epic world with custom Terrain, Trees, Biomes, Structures etc etc. We’re currently building a brand new spawn for that world, when that is finished we will generate an epic world, paste the spawn in there and publish the new world. After the release of the new world, i will give people one week time to transfer items and such to the new world. We will NOT worldedit your old factions base to the new world, so please keep that in mind. After that week i will completely remove the old factions world to save storage on the server. Later on, we are also planning to make a new spawn and an epic world for Survival, so stay Tuned!

    Epic World Gen Cinematic:



    Until next time,

    -Novalto

    Factions Plugin

    In addition, we will also switch Faction plugin to the most used one out there.

    Currently, we are using a premium version of an old Faction plugin which just isn't up to date anymore.
    With the new plugin, we hope to get a smooth experience and the use of commands we are familiar with.
    For example, an enemy faction will actually have a red colour and there are a bunch of other things that will work correctly. Commands will work a bit different but it's easy to get used to, don't worry!
    All you guys need to do when we launch this plugin is creating your faction again.

    Here you can read more about the new plugin: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/factions.1900/

    If you have any questions about Factions please let me know, I will be happy to answer!

    This most likely will not be required, but still will require downtime nonetheless.

    This updates should be amazing! Linux is amazing for resource management and fixing issues! Hope everything goes according to plan with minimal downtime.

    Keep up the good work team!
