We're making some changes to our rules and bans system over the next couple of days. These changes will come in two "waves". The first "wave" of changes has already been made, and the next "wave" of changes will happen tonight (in about 12 hours).
The first wave of changes included the following changes:
Improved automatic advertisement detection
Mutes now prevent people from talking in f chat etc.
Mutes now prevent people from placing signs (except for shops)
Mutes now prevent people from editing books
The first hacking offense is now 7 days (rather than 2 days)
The second wave will have a few pretty big changes:
The weapon name is removed from kill messages if you're muted
Removing rule 5
Renaming rule 2 to "chat offenses" and making it multi-part:
As most of you know, for the last few months @NobleProductions has been helping Upper Management to manage the network. He's the best manager we've ever worked with, and we're (hopefully) the best network he's worked with. He has recently decided to shut down his own network, the Noble Craft Network (NC for short), and move the players and staff over here. This post will be for both Neme and NC players who have any questions about this transition.
When will all of this be happening?
On the 30th of January, NC's IP will start forwarding to our hub. They have a great community, and we doubt there'll be any conflicts.
What if I donated on NC?
If you donated on NC, you'll get price-equivalent donor perks here on either our Skyblock server or an unannounced future server. We'll give more details on this when we get closer to the transition date.
What about their staff?
We will be welcoming NC's staff onto our team if they wish to move over. We've already been working closely with most of the admins on their network, so it shouldn't be much of a transition for them. Still, we will make sure that all of their staff are trained as we normally train staff. They will be given...
So I know naturally it's not me who posts these, but for the past week me and the management team, have been working to bring you guys a brand new website!
This has been on our minds for a while, but since we have been focusing on The Nework itself, the website got slightly pushed aside, but with all the awesome updates coming along nicely the opportunity to focus for a bit on something else was prominent and so we took it.
So what is new on the website?
Well, for starters we are no longer based on the Enjin website, making it so your accounts here are unique to our website. However, that alone wouldn't suffice to justify the change, the new website is also increadibly more efficient, the forums are organised in a much better way, and everything is just much better, and a very significant improvement to our old website.
We also implemented a new trophy system, click here to learn more about it, trophies will grant you trophy points, and these will allow you to climb up on the forum rank ladder (yes that is also a new thing, click here to know all about it).
It's been a long time coming; this week, SkyWars has received the same treatment the previous servers have been receiving and has been revamped! This means that it has been brought up to the standard of the rest of the network, both from a backend perspective, and frontend. With this comes some great features for you to enjoy!
So, without further ado, here are some of the changes!
As has been customary to the latest resets, we have made an entirely new set of arenas for solo play that have been specifically designed with the PvP aspect of SkyWars at the forefront. This means no matter which island you spawn at, it will be just as equal as everybody else.
New to this revamp is the addition of Team SkyWars! This means you can partner up with a friend and go against up to 5 other teams. Maps for this mode have also been designed with the same though as the solo maps, and are also much larger than their solo counterparts!
For those of you who don't know, today is NemeGaming's 5th birthday! We started off in late 2011 as a Factions server, and became one of the biggest Factions servers in the community by the Summer of 2013. In early 2014, we decided to become a network and launched more servers, and at the end of that year we merged with Drugwars. We added Skyblock a few months after that, and just earlier this year added PvP Minigames.
We're not done by any means. By the end of this calendar year, we've planned to have the following things done (in loose order):
Release web-based stats pages for Prison & Minigames
Put a custom anti-cheat into live beta testing
Hardware upgrades to accomodate the rapidly growing playerbase
Release 2 new minigames on our Minigames server
These are just big changes that we'll be making over the next ~35 days. We have a new gamemode planned, new maps and so much more for next year!
To celebrate this 5 year milestone, we've activated a double points event for the whole weekend and we're having a massive sale! Be sure to take advantage of both of these events!
