  1. As an update to the above conversation with Piogre, because we now plan on regularly regenerating the Nether, "visual griefing" will be allowed. It's still discouraged, as there are plenty of other ways to get around (ender pearls, elytra, blink spell), but don't stress too much about it.
  2. Report bugs here. Thanks!
  3. Congratulations to Dane123Man, the first player to reach Page under the new requirements!
  4. The Minecraft server is now running on version 1.12, the latest build of Minecraft as of posting. We've also moved to a new hardware provider, providing better latency for most users and improved hardware spec overall. The server TPS has returned to approximately 20, we are more stable overall, and things are generally quite cheery. Future improvements will include monitoring to ensure the server comes back up if it goes down - right now, an admin has to take action on it. One step at a time. Recent server-side improvements include additional quests, the near-completion of the castle in the middle of spawn (finally), and the renovation and reopening of the Heavens. All of that and more is continuing in development, as well! Please also join us on Discord if you haven't already. Here's our permanent invite link: https://discord.gg/qZ3c9x2 Hope you'll join us online soon! As active user count increases, we'll return to doing giveaways and events.
  5. The required amount of playtime to rank up has been nerfed - the intent of this change is to focus rank-ups more on player achievement than raw time played. People could theoretically idle the number of hours required, but the other requirements are designed to be in line (more or less) with the playtime listed.
  6. Similar to the C.A.S.H. Program for Mob Design, the C.A.S.H. Program for Creative Building will compensate players for their productive and creative insights. Under this program, players will be compensated for their positive contributions both to the existing world of Prosperus and for designing new structures (natural, man-made, etc.) which will be added to a pool of potential random spawns in the Heavens at each monthly reset. This means that in addition to the rewards earned for their own creativity, players will have the chance to seek out their creations and be rewarded by them (or build bases by them, etc.) in the future. Some ideas for creations include establishing new settlements on continents and islands that have yet to be civilized, designing "challengeable" structures for the Heavens a la jungle/desert temples in the overworld, and altars or ruins where one might be especially likely to encounter a boss (enterprising players may find themselves amply rewarded for submitting both a new Champion monster and a design for a corresponding structure to tie its spawning to). As always, please feel free to ask if you have any questions!
  7. Come one, come all, to the C.A.S.H. Program for Mob Design! Here you have the opportunity to secure for yourself grand riches, and to secure for others terrible nightmares! Indeed, this thread is your opportunity to design new mobs for the server and to be compensated for doing so. To wit, if you can design a mob that we decide is worthy of roaming our esteemed lands, you will be granted some shiny new loot! For instructions on how to design a mob, please consult the MythicMobs Manual. Rewards will be tailored to the complexity, difficulty, and appropriateness of the submissions. Submissions should include the mob itself, any skills it makes use of, the items it equips, and its drop table (including any custom items). You should also indicate which tier the mob falls into - Veteran, Elite, or Champion. For comparative purposes, current veterans include Skeletal Rogues and Lesser Wights, current elites include Skeletal Dark Knights and Liches, and current champions include Umbra, the Consuming Darkness. Feel free to ask questions! Here is an example: Mob SkeletalDarkKnight: Type: WITHER_SKELETON Display: '&dSkeletal Dark Knight' Health: 150 Damage: 7 Skills: - message{cooldown=20;m="<mob.name><&co> My blade will reap your soul!"} @PlayersInRadius{r=40} ~onCombat >0 0.2 - message{m="<mob.name><&co> You're no match for me, <trigger.name>!"} @PlayersInRadius{r=40} ~onPlayerKill >0 1 - skill{s=SmashAttack} @Target >0 0.2 Equipment: - SkeletalDarkKnightHelm:4 - iron_chestplate:3 - iron_leggings:2 - iron_boots:1 - SkeletalDarkKnightSword:0 Drops: - SkeletalDarkKnightDrops - EliteDrops Options: AlwaysShowName: true MovementSpeed: 0.2 MaxCombatDistance: 25 FollowRange: 50 PreventOtherDrops: false Skill SmashAttack: Cooldown: 8 Conditions: - targetwithin 25 Skills: - message{cooldown=30;m="<mob.name><&co> Are you afraid?

  8. The server is up to date with Minecraft's release version. Some plugins still need updating, but most features are intact. Please report bugs as you find them!
  9. Glad to have you here, dude.
  10. Yesterday, I cleaned up the entire site and upgraded us to the latest version of the community software we use. Let's go through some of what changed, how, and why. Old posts have been pruned There were a lot of threads on the site from the beginning of its creation. This is really cool in some ways, but in others it makes things a little cluttered and doesn't really reflect the evolution of the community over time. Not only does this give us a fresh chance to bring up some old topics of conversation to discuss them in a new light, but it makes room for new members to not feel overwhelmed by the fear of necro-bumping an old topic because they want to share their input. Plus, your post count still reflects all the posts you've made thus far. Categories and forums have been condensed This was a long time coming. While the interests of our members have always been diverse and varied, it usually wasn't quite enough to justify having separate sections for everything. Going forward, we encourage the use of more and longer threads within the appropriate sections in place of a few threads over many categories. For example, movies and the like can now be discussed in Chatting. No need for a separate forum; if there is enough activity, we'll make one, but this makes it easier to keep everything in the same place and keeps things moving more quickly. The site is cleaner, faster, and more responsive The update to the latest version of our community software brings with it a large number of new and improved features. Not only should you be able to load pages faster generally, it's also easier to navigate the different areas of the site and access notifications about content that interests you. In particular, you can create activity streams to monitor what you care the most about, and set up notifications either on-site or by email for things that are really important. Everything is shiny What you probably noticed first, and I'll discuss last, is the new skin. It improves usability, has a sharper and more modern look, and works great on any browser - even mobile devices. My favorite feature, though, is the background switcher. We can set six custom backgrounds, and you can choose your favorite one to use on the site, switching to another at any time. I've picked a few from my wallpapers folder as placeholders. Going forward, users will be able to vote on which backgrounds they'd like to have available, and we can update them as often or as little as we please. It's just one more thing to help make your Summa Crossroads experience exactly how you like it. Closing thoughts I hope you're all as excited about this update as I am. There's a lot left to do, so let's get to work!
  11. We've got some new toys to play with.

  12. A new quarter means it's time once again to post my favorite article. Friends who have never read it, I encourage you to take the time. But I don't just post it once a quarter for posting's sake - I read it myself, too, and take its content seriously. I hope it is as valuable as it has been for me.

    "For the power that is in you, as Emerson suggested, may be new in nature. You may not be the person that your parents take you to be. And—this thought is both more exciting and more dangero...

  13. Old topics will soon be retired to cleanse out the forum and give things a fresh start. Your post counts will be maintained! This will hopefully give some new life to the site and offer new opportunities for conversation. Update: The cleanse has been completed. Further updates to come.
  14. Make sure she's got a good connection - you can PM me if it happens again.
  15. Good day to graduate.
