DexCraft Craft Brothers Games!

Hello everyone, you're probably wondering whats been going on recently. The server computer has been a bit more temperamental and glitches out and the server crashes more often than usual. I have decided to put a vanilla map on, but its a good map. Its called Super Craft Brothers. I'm sure many of you have heard of it. Its like playing Super Smash Brothers in Minecraft. Please don't destroy the map, so that other people can enjoy.

Possibly Fixed Connection Issues :O and Other Stuffs.

I think, through much deliberation  I may have fixed the connection issues people were facing. Every few minutes, the server would refuse new connections, but maintained existing ones. I experienced this too when I was trying to load webpages on the server computer because they wouldn't load! Now, by messing with a few things, I haven't been able to replicate the connection issues.

The Server has been updated to 1.4.4 , we still have the same map.

Potatoes & Carrots can be obtained as a rare drop from zombies. Once players have found some & grown a few spares, they may be interested in selling some if your patient enough to wait.

Wither explosions are off, however please refrain from spawning them in populated areas such as towns & near spawn. We are going to make a special Arena where you can fight the wither & have your friends cheer you on from the grandstands.

A new spawn is under construction & will be copy pasted over the current spawn when it is complete. The new spawn will have better facilities for players such as brewing, enchanting, repair, smelting, crafting, shopping & more. It is our hope to see players interact more often at spawn, instead of just going there when they die & then warping home.

Hope to see you all on the server.

 TO: DEX3121

Ok reports are coming in that the main plugins we need to get started with the 1.4 update are up to date.
Also the server has been down for a few days & i suggest an automated restart every 6-12 hours to refresh the server & also correct a crash.

I suggest we keep the exact same map for now & just update the server file to 1.4, basic plugins such as world guard & essentials are priority but mcmmo can wait. I am also going to Put up a poll to see if the players would like an annual code freeze, meaning the server will get updated only once a year & helps avoid our current issues.

This would also limit the amount of time you would have to spend maintaining the server, as most of it would be automated & the rest the Admins can do.

Caprison had an idea with the command blocks to automate the ranking of new players, however this still needs to be tested & that can't happen till 1.4 is implemented on the server. A lot of our senior staff are either too busy irl or have lost interest in the server, so i will have to promote some new staff. I will select players who can be trusted & know what they are doing to keep the servers best interests at heart.

The sooner we get this done the sooner you can relax & do what you want/need to do outside the server.
I hope you get to this quickly, so the server can continue to grow & not shrink as it is now.

1.4 Update

As with most major minecraft updates, plugins need to be updated to work properly. Right now, Bukkit has released a beta build, which is safe for use on servers, but plugins that we need for protections and other basic functions haven't been updated. I'll make sure to update the server to 1.4 as soon as I see all of the plugins have been updated and are working properly. Thanks for being patient. 

Also, sorry I haven't been on at all. I'm suuuuper busy right now, but i'll try to be on more on the weekends.

Teamspeak to Ventrilo

Due to connection stability issues, user friendliness, and expected growth DexCraft is switching from a 10 slot Teamspeak Server to a 50 slot Ventrilo Server.  All the needed info on how to and where to download/install ventrilo is posted under the Ventrilo tab.

Treasure Hunt

We asked you, the players, what kind of contests you would like to see, and you responded.  So this Saturday at 9pm EST DexCraft will be hosting a Treasure Hunt.  Players have only to search within a 1000 block radius outside of the Spawn area to find 5 hidden treasure chests.  None of these chests will be placed on region protected land but you will have to search high and low and under water even.  Enjoy the hunt!
