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!
