Server now only accepts v1.12.2 clients

Posted by on 10:33 am in Minecraft | 0 comments

For the past couple of months we’ve accepted both v1.12.1 and v1.12.2 clients, we’re now only accepting v1.12.2 because we need to be running the latest server version for security reasons.

If you need Optifine or Liteloader they have both been available for v1.12.2 for some time. Thanks!

Six new cards added!

Today we’ve added six new cards, all of them are random drops so you can find them by playing any of our Easter Eggs. Enjoy!

New Easter Egg “Nirvana” by StankForDank added!

Today we have imported a beautifully designed new easter egg by <3 StankForDank the entrance of which is found within his spawn contest entry which we placed between the trail from the shops to the Mount Aino Lake (formally garden).

This Easter Egg features a unique card if you explore and complete all aspects of it. If you don’t you’ll not receive a unique card but the egg is rated “very high”.

This is a difficult egg to complete that will test all your parkour skills but also your intellect. The egg does feature checkpoints so don’t get too discouraged!

We hope you all have a great time playing this visually stunning Easter Egg. If you cannot locate the doorway at spawn you can of course enter through our /eggs menu.

Ricksterm is our latest Champion!

You all know Rick, he has been a staff member on our server since 2012. In that time he has built many eggs, rated many builds, redesigned spawn several times, come up with many ideas that we have implemented and helped shape what RENMX has become.

His contribution to the server has been so huge that it’s hard to imagine what it would be like without all he has done for us, we would be a very different community without him.

For all this hard work I am bestowing upon him the honour of being our 4th Champion. Congratulations Rick!

WorldEdit and Voxel Sniper upgrades

Posted by on 9:33 pm in Minecraft | Comments Off on WorldEdit and Voxel Sniper upgrades

WorldEdit and Voxel Sniper upgrades

A few days ago we installed a new plugin on our Creative server called FAWE which greatly improves the performance of WorldEdit and VoxelSniper.

We’ve been testing it since then and have found some remarkable performance results. For example while it would take around 8 hours to import a 7 million block build previously it took just 3.095 seconds to perform the same 7 million block import with FAWE.

This kind of performance increase is practically unheard of and it extends to not just pastes but all the common WorldEdit and Voxel Sniper brushes and commands.

With such a huge boost in performance I thought it was important enough to make a news post about it, WorldEdit and VoxelSniper are accessible to our players who hold the rank of Architect, Artist, Engineer or higher on our Creative server.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
