    Second Chance Program

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    As part of our drive to improve game player behavior as well as the overall experience on our server we have been reviewing our punishment program.

     

    While reviewing our current policies we have implemented a "Second Chance" program designed to help players reform their behavior and become upstanding members of the community. We understand that toxic players behavior have a negative impact on other players enjoyment of the game but we also appreciate that sometimes people make mistakes and are willing to make up for them.

     

    To be eligible for this program a player had to meet the following requirements:

    - Banned once only

    - Not banned for scamming, defrauding or taking advantage of other players

     

    This is a one-time leniency program designed to promote reform. Any repeat offenders will be banned again and this time it will be for good.

     

    At this time over 800 member accounts have been unbanned, while this may seem like a lot, after much review, many of these players were harshly banned. Since the time of this post we have revised our rules and I suggest you take a look and re-read them.

     

     

    Thank you to all of our members who have been helping us make the server a better place for everyone!

     

    Be sure to check out our new server @ mc.lodecentral.com

     

     

    With love,

    Christopher

    Plugins

    ScottimussPrime
    By ScottimussPrime,

    Hey guys, I'm looking to make the server a bit more interesting!

    So I'm turning to you guys for a little bit of help. I'm looking into plugins we can install on the server. If you know of any plugins you'd like to see, comment here and we'll take a look and see if they would be a good fit for the server.

     

    The only requirement of any plugins or mods you put in here is that it must be a server mod. Not a clientside mod.

    So let's hear it guys. What do you have?


    Server Updated to 1.7.2

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    Greetings friends!

     

    It has been far too long since I have come around! I recently started graduate school to get my Masters in Computer Science so things have been hectic to say the least! I also just started teaching a few computer classes at my university so that in combination with school has given me very little time!

     

    However, I decided to buckle down and update the server to 1.7.2, Good news is you can also join the server using 1.7.3 and 1.7.4!!!

     

    Most of the plugins have been updated, and I have done some custom work on a few others to get the to be compatible with 1.7.2 :D

     

    Hope to see more of you playing now that the server has been updated!!!!

     

    Stay tuned for our NEW 1.7.2 SPAWN and HUB SERVER!!!!!!!!!!

     

     

    Until next time,

     

    Christopher

     

    EDIT:

    Minor update: The new Hub world and the 1.7 Spawn have been launched. To get to the hub while on the server type "/warp hub" This will take you to a location where you can choose which server you wish to play on.


    VIP

    Christopher
    By Christopher,

    I just updated the LodeMoney store and added the ability to purchase VIP status on the website.
     
    Becoming VIP lets you:

    • Have a Purple Colored name (Show off to the community!)
    • Have access to the Secret VIP Forum

    More benefits will be added later! Currently the cost of VIP membership is L10,000 (LodeMoney) and that lasts for 60 days!
     
    However, any member that donates to the website (using real money) purchasing one of the four available subscriptions ($5 Bronze, $10 Iron, $25 Gold or $50 Diamond) receives VIP for life! So those of you that have already donated are automatically able to reap all of the current and future VIP benefits!
     
    Many more fun, and awesome benefits will be added to the forum, and to the VIP group in the future so stay tuned!
     
    As always: With Love,
     
    -Christopher
     
    P.S: It's now much easier to earn LodeMoney!
