LunarVale

Hey guys just wanted to give you all an update on what's going on. We know the server is still down and we've had people actively working on it in and out for the past day or so. Technicians and Rayne are treating this like a tag team, one them has to go to bed and the other one pops up to step in. We're trying to get it up as soon as we can but we also know rushing this will cause more issues and we're wanting to be super thorough.

The reason the server needed to be shut down is due to chunks not regenerating. Basically you could make a nice little home in your area, tp away to shop, and come back to find your home is no longer built and all the land you cleared for it is back. Since this issue can be caused by a number of things we have to be careful what we move around and update as far as plugins and even spigot itself. Please please please be very patient with us, we really want to get the server back up too. (I'm so bored I made myself a sweater from cat hair)

As for a short little FAQ section:
-
No, we don't know when the server will be back up.
- As far as permanent damage there is none, as of right now.
- Rayne has aged about 50 years in the past 2 days
and when the server goes up it will have a lot to do with her.

- Bannah still likes Kpop.

Love you guys! In the meantime check out some of the fun forum games going on right now!

As most of you have noticed by now we've had to remove a few plugins that are fairly cosmetic but we still have grown to see as vital.

A week ago staff and a few players noticed that elevators were getting to be super buggy, more so than usual. We didn't remove the plugin yet cause we wanted to see if we could figure out where the issue was, since so many of us like the elevator plugin. Fast-forward a two days and its gotten major buggy, it rendered a few chunks unload-able so we had to remove the whole plugin as a precaution. It was a high risk that anyone with an elevator could have gotten a buggy chunk that would make their game crash every time they walked in the chunk. Removing the plugin made it 100% safe that it would not happen.

However even though we removed it we had a few errors pop up in the server console that had to do with other plugins causing errors. Due to this you guys saw how the server kept crashing. So many errors were happening the server would manually shut down to prevent damage. The techs and upper staff apologize for this, as it seemed to happen when a majority of us were out of town, asleep, or almost there. As a fix to stop the server from auto shutting down we had to remove a few more plugins that were possibly causing the console to fill with errors.

The plugins removed were Exotic Gardens, Playtime, Fast Craft, Tree Chop, Elevators and a few others that won't effect you guys. Please know these various plugins will be added back soon. We can't add them back all at one time since we are trying to avoid errors and make sure we do not add back a plugin this is not safe. Please keep in mind too that myself (Bri/Glitter), Rayne/Love, Devon/Warning, Bannah/Storm, and Brayden/gz, are only human. Putting together a server is like putting together a puzzle. It takes a little work to get all the pieces to fit together perfectly and to function.

Be patient with us and we will keep things going as smoothly as we possibly can. If you should encounter anything you think is a bug or really odd please /mail send Glitter or Love.

Get your bodies ready for our awesome Christmas Drop Party. This will be the drop party to top all the drop of parties we've ever had! Tons of items will be dropped as a thank you for your love and support you have shown year round. And we do mean the whole year! The anniversary for the server was on December 5th, a whole year we've been up thanks to you guys.

The year has been pretty silly right? What I want to see is you guys put some of your silly and special screenshots in this thread. Let's fill the thread of Minecraft images that make us happy! :D

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of Staff <3
After a long 5 hours of wrangling feral cats, let loose to roam about the server by Bri, we have officially reset the map and are now open for all players to enjoy!

See you in game!
I have claimed about half the map at this point and I've built statues of cats every 15 chunks or so. I plan to change all the grass to purple clay or bedrock, both seem cool. I'll also be making all mesa's have rainbow clay and most important I'm putting random villagers all over the map with the names of cool Kpop Groups.

SEE YA GUYS IN A FEW

DISCLEEMER: "In a few" doesn't mean in a few minutes. IT MEANS in a few cat statues.
Final world save is complete! Divine for a Day starts now!

Attention!

The community has spoken, and they said 'Let there be a reset!'
On Wednesday, November 16, 2016 @ 12 AM CST, the world map for LunarVale will be wiped clean, granting a fresh start to ALL players.
This means that builds, money, enderchests, inventories, achievements, McMMO, SlimeFun (including backpacks), Jobs, set homes, claims and warps will all be reset to default for every player.
The world will be completely reset, meaning that we will use a new seed with new caves and new land for players to build, mine and explore! The economy will also change, allowing players new methods for earning money. The Nether and The End will also be reset.

Frequently Asked Questions
-----------
Will I be able to keep any of my items?
- We are allowing all players to keep their player vaults through the reset. This means that you can store valuables ( like Cosmic Items, Custom Items, Store Bought and Sentimental Items) in your player vaults for safe keeping to use on the new map. Your enderchest nor your player inventory will be kept.
ITEMS THAT WILL NOT TRANSFER: BUILD TOKENS, SLIMEFUN ITEMS, & SPAWNERS.

Can staff save a copy of my house?
- No. Staff will not be saving individual builds for players. The only builds that will be saved by the staff on the server are those needed for official server builds and/or functional purpose.
However, before the reset, we will do our best to save a final copy of the map and have it up for download. Be sure to save the coordinates to your builds so that you can find them if you choose to play the map on a single player world.

Will I keep my rank?
- Yes! You will never lose your in-game rank.

Aside from my playervault, what else will be kept?
- Ranks, PlayerVaults, Claim Blocks, Playtime & Points are the only things that will be kept after the reset.

In Short,
ITEMS THAT WILL TRANSFER THROUGH THE RESET:
- RANKS
- PLAYER VAULTS
- CLAIM BLOCKS
- POINTS
- PLAYTIME


ITEMS THAT WILL NOT TRANSFER THROUGH:
- BUILDS
- BUILD TOKENS

- BALANCE
- ENDERCHEST / PLAYER INVENTORY
- ACHIEVEMENTS
- McMMO
- SLIMEFUN (INCLUDING BACKPACKS)
- JOBS
- SET HOMES
- CLAIMS
- WARPS

PLEASE MAKE SURE ALL ITEMS ARE STORED IN PLAYERVAULTS BY NOVEMBER 13 @ 11:59 PM CST.
This is when the final copy of the world will be saved.
-----------
Since we know that motivation to play up until the reset will be nonexistent, we're giving all players a challenge...
THE RACE TO BALTOP
As of reading this post, the balance limit of 10 million dollars will be increased to an infinite amount. All players are encouraged to race to baltop! The player with the most money on November 14, 2016 @ 12 PM CST will win a free COSMIC RANK! 2nd and 3rd highest baltop will receive DIVINE & ETHEREAL RANKS! Get to grinding and race to the end!
-----------
KINGS FOR A DAY
Starting November 14, 2016, for 24 hours, all players will be given DIVINE RANK. Perks for these ranks will be available for all players to take advantage of for the ENTIRE day. Be sure to log on and be a part of the fun!
-----------
THE PURGE
Not all good things can last forever. Every king must meet his demise. On November 15, 2016, LunarVale will be free for all the raiding, pillaging, and pvping that you desire! Claims will be disabled, PVP in the Overworld will be enabled, keep Inventory will be a thing of the past, and Mob Griefing will be at its full force. OP items will be placed around the world for the player's taking. Keep in mind, that a final copy of all of your items has been saved, so feel free to use all of your resources at will.
NOTE: CHAT RULES WILL STILL APPLY DURING THE PURGE.
Hello friends! Many of you may not know that this map was set on December 5th 2015. This means a lot of the players we have, have had the same base and homes for quite a while. Lately the staff has been debating about when we would want to map reset or if we would want to at all.

Since there are no rules about being offline and losing your builds it means even if someone joins for two hours and is offline for 6 months, whatever they built will never be removed or allowed to be griefed. This means cluttered areas are all over the map, especially outside public server warps, and it's hard to do /rtp without running in to someone's build close by. Please also keep in mind that you may be a member who has only played a few days/weeks but there are a lot of members who have been playing almost the full year to 6 months and up. Please do not be selfish in your decision ex. "I started last week no way I want to lose my progress!"

In this thread we are wanting to get our player's ideas on how they feel about a reset. If the majority vote is yes we will of course give a few weeks in advance letting you know it will be reset to assure as many players as possible know of it. If the majority vote is no then we will not reset but will possibly balance reset and find another means to bring challenge back for veteran members.


Things you can look forward to if the "yes" is a majority vote:
- New map, new you.
- New map who dis.
- More to explore.
- A chance to snag an Elytra from The End.
- Start a town with your new friends you met on the server.
- No more abandoned builds all over the place.
- You won't have to look at Bannah's old house ever again.
- Now that you learned how to make a cool base you can now make an even cooler one.
- The day before a reset we would have PURGE DAY - We back up player vaults and points then allow pvp and griefing.

The reason we won't transfer over spawners is due to them being such a big money maker. If we let you take spawners then there is no point to a map or balance reset.

FAQs
- What you have in your inventory will not be saved.
- What you put in your enderchest will not be saved.
- Your home sets will not be saved.
- Your MCMMO stats will not be saved.

- Your player vaults WILL be saved.
- Spawners will not transfer over. (Even if they're in a pv)
- Your player balance will be reset to $500 .
- I made Bannah like Korean Pop Music.
- You
WILL keep your claim blocks.
- The End and Nether will be reset.
- SlimeFun will be reset.
- You
WILL keep your points.

I look forward to hearing everyone's ideas and seeing where the player base stands on this proposal. This thread will be up for two weeks before we close voting so be sure to vote or leave a comment while you can! If we do decide to reset there is no set date, as we may try and hold out for 1.11
SERVER IS BACK UP AND RUNNING WE'RE NOW 1.10.2 BUT 1.9.4 STILL WORKS TO JOIN
Please note that you CANNOT join the server with 1.9.2! You MUST use 1.9.4 or above!
