Server Connectivity Hiccup

Posted by on Aug 30, 2017 |

Just a quick message, some time today one of our three gateways to the internet stopped working which resulted in 33% of our connections failing. When you tried to connect you would have received a message about a login error which asked you if the session servers were offline.

Thank you to the users who came to our IRC Channel to report this issue to us.

We have since corrected this problem and the server is once again 100% accessible. Also as a reminder this is the last day to remove your contest plot from our contest area before we reset for our build contest on the 1st of September.

Deactivated plugins/features

Posted by on Aug 17, 2017 |

Yesterday we deactivated a few things in our quest to track down performance issues. You may have noticed recently that the server has been incredibly laggy since we upgraded to 1.12/1.12.1.

We’ve found the cause is mostly Craftbook. The problem is Craftbook is not unloading things when players vacate an area so if you have a complex farm setup that makes heavy use of Craftbook mechanics or integrated circuits they never become unloaded and keep eating up resources.

Due to this we’ve found the performance of the server dropping down as low as 4 TPS when it’s meant to be 20 TPS at all times. This huge drop makes many things on the server not work like eating food, killing mobs and it makes mining very frustrating as blocks keep re-appearing after being mined away.

So we have started to deactivate some of the more intensive parts of Craftbook, we announced earlier in the week that we’ve disabled collectors, we have now also disabled pushers and crushers.

We’ve also been tracking down the cause of the random server crashing. To try and fix that we’ve been removing plugins that are throwing a lot of errors in our game console, one of which is ItemSlotMachine which is what powers our Casino. We do not know if this plugin will be making a return we’re still evaluating things.

And finally we’ve removed a plugin which allowed you to store things in bookcases. It had a 2% impact on tickrate which is quite high for such a basic plugin (even Towny only uses 0.14%) so we’ve removed it to help increase performance.

Thanks for reading, we know this is frustrating for people who’ve invested time into the farms that use crushers and collectors but the performance of the server is more important and until these bugs are fixed we’re going to be leaving these mechanics turned off.

Shop plots expanded 2 blocks

Posted by on Jul 30, 2017 |

Today we’ve altered the depth of the main shops at /warp shop by two blocks enabling players to build all kinds of custom flooring including light up floors using redstone, glass or any other material.

We’re not increasing the price for the shops even though most shops are gaining 10-20% more area, we expect the new space will be used for flooring and not shop chests.

Enjoy!

New Feature: Daily Rewards

Posted by on Jul 30, 2017 | 1 comment

Today we’re introducing a new feature called Daily Rewards where by you earn things by logging into any of our four servers each day and the rewards get better the longer your streak runs.

For example on the first day you login you’ll earn an increase to Payme by R0.01 per minute. The second day you login you’ll earn R0.02 per minute extra. So each consecutive day you login you’ll get more and more money per minute.

If however you miss a day or don’t login, your payme benefit resets back to R0.00 and you have to start over.

We’ve also added a free betting reward where for every 10 days you’ve logged in you’ll earn a free bet which stacks with your other free bets. The way this works is, once you hit the 10 day mark you’ll receive 1 free bet every day after this until you hit 20 days, then you’ll receive 2 free bets per day until you hit 30 days and then you’ll receive 3 free bets per day etc

There is no limit so if you were to login to the server for 100 days straight you would be earning 10 free bets per day and an extra R1 per minute in payme!

This is just the beginning of our new daily rewards feature. We’ll be adding more rewards including ones you can choose from on login. We hope you all have a lot of fun participating with the new rewards system!

Daily Reward Commands:

/score View the daily rewards scoreboard
/daily View your current daily rewards and login streak

Jackerdelta is our latest Champion

Posted by on Jul 26, 2017 |

<3 Jackerdelta is the second player to receive our new Champion status after being incredibly helpful and beneficial to the server.

Lending us his coding skills in our upgrade to v1.12 we were able to retain many of our custom features including Easter Eggs, Voting, Shops at spawn, Effects Cards, Mining Boosts and more.

Without his assistance we would likely still be on v1.11.2 even now. Thank you Jack!

If you’d like to become a Champion and see yourself featured here think about the ways you can contribute to RENMX that have a meaningful impact. From creating amazing easter eggs to being helpful to new players you could receive this honour and the benefits that go with it too!

Champion System Take #4

Posted by on Jul 14, 2017 |

Today we’re announcing the new RENMX Champion system. Essentially it has the same rewards, eight unique cards as shown below. But the way in which we give Champion status is changing.

From today you don’t need to submit your builds, instead we’re going to give Champion status to players that go above and beyond in supporting RENMX. Be that through advertising us online, referring huge quantities of friends, voting consistently for years or building ground breaking Easter Eggs and buildings for spawn.

The first recipient of Champion status is <3 iNook for his consistently high quality work at spawn including the coding of the Arena. Congratulations iNook!
