Can you give us any details on the Economy Revamp?

Basically, I want to ditch the in-game currency and use an item instead (emeralds) for a few reasons.

  1. The currency system with $ is messy. We have to change it too an item, and back to get the $ balance on a different server (Elvandria to Survival as an example) and it’s easier because its just part of the inventory.
  2. It will enable us to add custom villagers to Elvandria who will trade specific items for emeralds. We can’t do this with the current currency system because its via plugin, but an item would work well.
  3. You can earn them naturally in game, it fits the lore way better (than having some random virtual currency system) and it also means that we’re not detracting from the ‘original’ minecraft survival experience (we want as little plugins as possible that effect gameplay basically so it’s a pure experience)

As far as transition goes, I was going to include a note about it in the 1.7.10 -> 1.8.x update (when it happens). However, since no items will be carried between worlds on that update, it seems illogical to tell everyone to ‘stock up’ now.

Just remember that next update, this is the new system and I’ll re-explain it closer to the change. :)

I LOVE this shader mod soooo much ;A; everything looks beautiful~ 
also have a mod that adds lots of props and one called the Twilight Forest (which is where the tree with a heart in it came from) that lets you go to this really amazing place *—*

The lore behind this: Lord Berches, frustrated by commute times from Masonville, and being well versed in the trade routes throughout the continent, has seen opportunity in Corrach technology, and has comissioned a group of engineers on leave in Ffierio to construct a “flying ship.” This is their 2nd attempt. The first burned and sank. The 2nd? Well it SHOULD fly.. possibly.. maybe? Perhaps if Lord Berches would fund them a little better that is..

News: Welcome to 1.7.10

Hi everyone,

Our server is back online and running Minecraft 1.7.10 after being down for about 24 hours while I updated it. While lots of things have been fixed around the place there is also a bit of bad news…

Firstly, the bad - Inventories & ender chests were regrettably reset during this upgrade. This was basically because the backup I took of the inventory and enderchest databases but it was the wrong format and couldn’t be reloaded after changes had been made. I’m really sorry about this, I didn’t realise until I was trying to load it all back in.

However, on the brighter side - thanks to 5 amazing people we’ve already gone over and above our required level for contributions with a whopping $140 raised in under 2 days! Thanks so much to you 5 for that, it really means a lot and also helps out heaps because I don’t have to worry about us having enough to keep running!

Back on the topic of the server; last night I got Elvandira back online (otherwise known as the lobby server) and regular survival. I ran into problems getting Survival Earth online, there seems to be some serious issues with the portal not linking back to the world. I have contacted the interdimensional portal help squad and have since been informed that they will look into it.

Because it was 12am when I was finished attempting to get Survival Earth back, I was too tired to go about starting on Creative. The aim is to have that back online tonight (if I can’t get it tonight, it will be a little ways off because I have no spare time Fri/Sat).

I’ll have another update for everyone once there is more progress on it all. Thank you and again, sorry about the inventories.

If it goes 'pear-shaped,' that only adds to the adventure on this fantastic server, I won't be mad at all!

awwwh you…
