The State of RoW: August 2014

We’ve made some major changes to our survival worlds. Also, our Creative World is now open!

2013-09-21_23.22.08Wolfia

The world of Wolfia is temporarily CLOSED to the public. It is being refined into an Economy world; a world based around money and trading, of items, land, services, and more. The world itself will return, but there will be more than basic survival gameplay when it returns!

Wolfia IS open to all Staff, and if you have a bed set in Wolfia, you can also enter it. It will be reopened to everyone within the next few months. More details will be available closer to its return.

 

 

2014-08-20_11.55.22Aedoric

2014-08-20_11.56.31Aedoric has been reset. Because several Staff (including myself) overused Creative Mode on the world, we thought it was unfair to others, as this is a Survival World, and decided to reset the world.

If you had any chests or buildings on Aedoric, unfortunately they are lost. Your inventory and Ender Chest on Aedoric will be accessible on Wolfia, when it returns.

The new Aedoric is survival only, even for Staff. Admins do not have most of their permissions here, so they must play in Survival Mode. No Creative, no God Mode, no Fly. I have even decided to set myself to Default on this world, meaning I am not even part of Staff on Aedoric.

You can enter Aedoric from its portal at Spawn. Please note that inventories are now separate from Wolfia and Spawn. Have fun surviving!

 

 

 

 

2014-08-20_12.12.09Creative

Our Creative World is finally open! It has been open to Architects, Staff, and invited players for a while, but now it is open to everyone!

2014-08-20_12.15.17The world is divided into many large zones, each 1500×1500. Each zone has a certain theme, such as Medieval, Modern, Pixel Art, Redstone, Organic, and more. The world is still being set up, and Cole is not yet finished a system to travel between zones, so there may be issues. Ask Cole (or another Staff member) if you need help or have questions.

Also, builds from earlier Creative Worlds still have to be copied in. This will happen sometime soon.

You can enter the Creative World from its portal at Spawn.

The New World: Aedoric

As most of you probably know, we recently opened a new survival world! This world is now our main survival world, although Wolfia is still up.

The name of this new world is Aedoric (pronounced a-dor-ic or ae-dor-ic).

Aedoric has been open for a few weeks now. At the moment, most of the buildings are fairly spread out. The portal on this world is located in front of my house (Necrowolf Manor), though it will soon be moved to the main square when that is complete. The actual city is only starting to come together, we do not have many roads yet. The city is located on a continent, far northeast from 0,0.

Currently, we do not have any official rules or laws for this world. Server-wide rules and guidelines do still apply though.

Over the next few weeks, I will be posting more details about Aedoric, including a rather lengthy list of things that you can help with. The first post should be up sometime this weekend.

Aedoric is now live on the server, you can access it from it’s portal at the new Spawn. This world is survival-only, with the exception of some large projects. See you in Aedoric!

Another Update on 1.7

First of all, the 1.7 update is now available for the server. I am working on getting it working, however, there is a lot I want to do to prepare the server.

We’ve been using the same world (Wolfia) for nearly two years now. In this time, plugins and other worlds have changed, and of course the Minecraft version. We’ve gone from having a few plugins and only Wolfia on 1.2.5, to Rykania and Wolfia on 1.4.2 with quite a lot more plugins, to our current multiworld server with over 30 plugins on 1.6.4. There are a lot of old files left over in the server files, many of which are no longer needed. This has lead to some recent crashing, glitches, and overall it is not exactly a stable setup.

The Return of Wolfia, 1.7 news, & Merry Banmas!

This is going to be a long blog post. I haven’t been updating the blog as much as I should have been, but now that I have some more time, I will try to post more often.

First of all, Merry Banmas to everyone! There is a lot I planned for Banmas, however, due to the long downtime (which I will explain below), it looks like most of it will not be happening. I will be giving out several Banmas gifts within the next few days, and I may do New Years fireworks if I can.
