    Guess Who's Back???

    July 2017 - Network Update

     

    Yo peeps, we've had big things in the works for a while now! We're sure you've all noticed the release of Legacy Prison, which is a relaunch of our OG Prison map from back in the day. With it's launch come many bug fixes in the prison gamemode itself. Firstly, any bugs once in the map are now fixed and the TPS (Ticks per second) generally remains at an average of 20, which is the highest it can be! We're keeping as many original features as possible, meaning the gamemode should be as original as possible, though we have made a few subtle changes - though you'll never find them. Aside from what we AREN'T changing, we'll be releasing something for the players that prestige: a new donor rank and 300+ new minimal security prestige cells. We won't be announcing the specific details of their release, but it may align with the prestige-ing of a certain player by the name of omgitsalia. That's right boys and girls, Ali-A himself has returned for the Prison hype - and to give out diamonds, of course! He'll be recording at times, so chances are, if you're a Prison donor, you'll be seeing a few mobs randomly disappear from time to time. If you do, please keep in mind it's for Youtube and not to disturb him - for example, use a different farm until he's finish; this makes for a better quality video! Trolls aren't fun, and it may be fun to mess with someone, but attempting to mess with their work is a really rude thing to do and may get you banned... forever.

     

    Aside from that, we've had some upgrades! We've tallied-up the amount of players the network can actually hold, so you'll see our max player count spike soon! We've also increased the speed between our data server and the server, so things'll be loading faster now, bans/mutes will load faster, and things in general will run a lot better than they once did! That upgrade alone also affects this forum, so it should also load better now! We've also had a few replacements in the network recently. The machine hosting Survival, Hub 1, and Skyblock recently had a hard drive failure, which is odd for RAIDed SSDs, but not unheard of, so we've moved those to a new machine. You should be noticing a few quality improvements in both gamemodes and the hub now! Since the old status page couldn't give details of what exactly was going on with the network, we've scrapped the old one (as nice as it was) and gotten a modern one that can report exactly what's going on with each gamemode and report expected maintenance! It's still in its beta stages, but it'll be updated regularly!

     

    While we've had network upgrades in the background, we've also done things you peeps may have noticed. We recently remade our Discord server, which we encourage all of you to use as an alternative to Teamspeak. It available free of charge on all devices and can be used from any computer's web browser! You can access it by going to this website: https://discord.aliacraft.net. We've also remade our network logos and banners! While we use a dedicated artist for most of our content, we'd love to see what you peeps have to offer! Please feel free to create banners and artwork for the network, then post them in the Community Artwork section of the forum! The only thing we must ask is that you don't claim ownership of other's content. If you didn't create it, don't say you did, that's rude and will get you banned!

     

    We have many more network updates in the works and on the way, so keep a lookout for announcements from the OPs team on this forum! All other announcements not specifically made by us are unofficial and are most likely fake!

     

    We hope you peeps enjoy the new features, improvements, and things to come!

    March Comes in Like a Lion

    March 2017 - Forum Update

     

    Hey peeps! It's been a long time coming, but we've finally gotten around to updating and fixing a ton of things around the site! There were many things none of us really cared for with the way the forum used to be setup, and we didn't have any plugins or addons to make it as nice as it is now! That said, I've purge a lot of content from the forum that really left a bad taste in everyone's mouths. They were either negative in nature, or didn't do anything to really help the forum out in any way. There were ban appeals all over the place, reports and complaints in the wrong sections, and small wars brewing in threads normal members had no business in! So, in an effort to clean up around here a bit, I've removed about 60% of all things that were on the forum, including a few things I didn't mean to remove... oops. I've changed the ban appeal format and fixed a few settings to reduce the load on the machine the forum runs from. I've disabled the ability to upload anything that isn't explicitly a picture file, but I may still disable that, too. Space on the site's important, and most people should be using an external image-sharing service, like imgur or puu.sh - I prefer puu.sh because it only loads the picture, no extra web page stuff, so it's really fast.

     

    Some of the changes you'll notice include the new, shiny portal page, which will feature announcements, show the server's status, and show twitter updates from our Twitter, AliAServers, and Ali-A himself! There've been other changes as well; you'll notice now that your reputation level is visible in the user bar at the top. It's among one of the smallest updates, but still a very useful tool. You can also clear notifications completely now! Click the notifications menu at the top to try that out, I know it's very useful to me.

     

    I've also added a nice thing that tells you when someone's online while you're reading a thread. If you see a green glow around their avatar, it means they're online, otherwise you'll see a barely visible dark shadow instead. In private messages, you'll see a little person next to other's usernames that do the same thing, just with less space to work with. You'll also notice user titles now appear in private messages. I thought this was a nice feature to add since it shows anyone in the message the staff rank, or lack thereof, of the person they're chatting with. One of the final things you'll notice I've added is a nice little scroll-to-top button in the bottom right corner of the page. It'll be very useful on the longer threads in the Community Wonderland.

     

    There are a few new optional things on user profiles as well. You can now change the size of your background image in event that the default size was too small for your background. That said, please don't make it as large as possible to annoy visitors to your profile. The other addition to user profiles is a little flag that displays which country you're from. It's a completely optional thing that you don't need to setup if it makes you uncomfortable, but I feel it'll help broaden the spectrum our players see in the community; we are an international community, after all. We have players from all corners of the world, including Australia, New Zealand, Malaysia, the Philippines, India, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Poland, Belgium, the UK, Portugal, South Africa, Canada, and the US, just to name a few. If I missed your country, I apologize, but it's not easy to remember where all of our users come from, there are so many places...

     

    I know it's old news, but you can also login with several external services now, including Microsoft, Google, Twitter, Facebook, and Steam! As if that wasn't enough, we also added Two-Factor Authentication for those of you that value your account's security, and why shouldn't you? Security is a MUST around the AliaCraft Network; it's one of our top priorities across all aspects of the network. I've discovered that it's a bit bugged at the moment, but the 2FA option should appear under Account Settings soon, labeled Account Security.

     

    There are many more updates that aren't worth mentioning yet, and many more to come!

    Stay tuned; something big is coming soon!!
