Just a quick update, we have added new protected regions to the end so that players can place the end crystals necessary to spawn an enderdragon. We’ve also added regions atop the columns so you can break the end crystals that heal the dragon when it’s spawned.
Today we’ve written and deployed a new custom feature that allows you to choose the colour of your name on our server. The command is /setcolour <colour name|rank name>
The way it works is you can only choose a colour that is equal or lower than your current rank. So for example Apprentices can only be Dark Green (Member) or Green (Apprentice). But a Legendary Crafter could be any colour except Aqua (Moderator) and Dark Red (Administrator).
So if you want more colours simply rank up and acquire them. Engineers, Architects and Artists are considered the same rank level and so they can switch between those three colours as they wish as-well as Apprentice and Member colours.
You can also hide your supporter heart by adding -h to the end of the command. For example /setcolour green -h
If you want to return to your actual ranks colours simply type /setcolour reset we hope you all enjoy the new feature.
There is one last thing. This feature costs R5 + 0.1% of your currently held rennies to use. So if you have R50,000 it would cost you R55 to change. If you had R500,000 it would cost R505 to change.
There is no charge for using /setcolour reset. We want this feature to help take some money out of the economy which is why we have structured it like this.
One of our longest-serving Moderators has stepped down today, Sammy_R!
As a server like ours is around for so long (this will be our 8th year operating) it is expected that many of our staff will move on as their lives change.
For many of our staff they joined while in high-school or college. We’ve said goodbye to many of these staffers over the years as their circumstances change and their time is spent more on their careers, families and friends.
Today we say goodbye to Sammy_R but we hope he will continue to visit as a player like many other previous staff members continue to do.
Thank you for all that you contributed to RENMX Sam!
Today we’re introducing a new event where you can earn rennies by funboxing specific individuals. Today the event begins with Pri. Yes that elusive jumping monkey-man. Funbox him, take a screenshot and submit it in this thread for your chance to win R10,000. But if he catches you in the act of funboxing he will deduct R5,000 from your balance which will go into the winners jackpot.
Happy funboxing and no cheating, you must fully encase Pri in a material of your choosing and take a screenshot. No partial boxes will be accepted and staff are not allowed to abuse teleporting to get the funbox to work.
At 7:23 AM this morning we had a power outage, our server stayed powered on (but disconnected from the internet) until 7:35 AM when our battery backup system safely shutdown our server to prevent damage caused by the lack of power to the building.
This means our battery backup system (UPS) worked as intended and we should not have any data loss, data corruption or hardware failure (disk crashes etc).
The power came back on at 9:00 AM so we were without power for 1 hour and 37 minutes.
As annoying as power problems like this are I’m happy to say the new UPS we bought last year worked as intended, this was its first power outage and it performed as it should giving us 12 minutes of runtime before shutting everything off safely before its charge was depleted.
As of this post our Minecraft servers are back online.
