Halloween Build Contest!

Posted by on Oct 15, 2017 |

We hope you all had fun with our previous build contest last month, we were so impressed by the entries that multiple builds were imported into the spawn where they will remain indefinitely. You should all be proud!

This month we’re doing only one build contest but it’s a big one, Halloween themed and with our largest prize pool to date. Not only are we offering more games but the 1st 2nd and 3rd place winners get to select two games each from the titles available.

So the build theme is of course Halloween, you are free to build anything you want as-long as it has some connection to Halloween.

To enter simply head on over to /warp contest get yourself a plot by pushing the button on the right of the contest board and build your best Halloween themed build!

The games we’re offering to be won are Contagion, Rage, Bioshock, FEAR 1, 2 and 3, Stalker Clear Sky, Stalker Shadow of Chernobyl and Slain: Back from Hell!

Bioshock and Slain: Back from Hell are Windows + Mac compatible while all other games are Windows only.

This contest runs from October 15th to October 25th and is open to all players to participate in on our Survival server.

New workaround for Ghost Blocks

Posted by on Oct 11, 2017 |

When mining using a very fast pickaxe you may have noticed some blocks don’t get mined but they turn invisible. We added a fix for this last year where you can type /ghost <radius> to make these blocks re-appear.

Today we’ve added a second fix called /autoghost where once you type this command the ghost feature will be on automatically and you should not encounter any more “ghost” blocks.

The reason we’ve not enabled this feature by default is it does use more bandwidth so for our players on poor internet connections you may not want it enabled permanently.

Thanks.

Code Improvement

Posted by on Oct 10, 2017 |

Over the past several months you may have all noticed that a lot of features on the server have not been working correctly. Things such as:

  • PM System freezing and delays when sending messages
  • Delays when using /search
  • Delays when using the warehouse (/get, /store)
  • Egg entrances not teleporting you
  • Issues with /sell

And many other issues. All of these problems were related to our custom code bridge which is a piece of software we use to interface our custom code with our game servers.

Well I’m happy to announce that <3 AdrianL11 our Java developer and one of our three Administrators was able to rewrite the code bridge on the 8th of October and since then we have had no more issues with any of our custom software. Which means there has been no more freezing or delays when using any commands.

I’m incredibly grateful to Adrian for this hard work and I know you all will be too once you try some of our custom stuff once again.

TidgeMathPowerland
 

Today we’re saying goodbye to three members of staff, Tidge, MathPowerland (also known as Daigle) and Freakboy31

We’ve been immensely fortunate to have all of them as members of our staff team.

Math became a moderator on December 6th 2013 making him one of our longest serving Moderators, Tidge became a Moderator on March 6th 2015 and Freakboy31 became a moderator on June 23rd 2012 making him the longest continually serving member of staff apart from myself.

Although they’re stepping down now we may see one or more of them on the staff team again in the future when real life quietens down.

Thank you all for your commitment to our server over the past several years, I am incredibly grateful.

Changes to Daily Rewards

Posted by on Oct 9, 2017 |

Just over two months ago we added a new feature called Daily Rewards which rewards you for logging into the server every day and the rewards keep growing every day that you login consecutively.

Today we’ve made a slight alteration to the Daily Rewards system, now instead of getting it instantly on login you’ll receive your rewards after being online for 5 minutes. We feel this is a fair adjustment to the system so that it doesn’t get abused.

We’ve also enhanced the system slightly so you now get your daily rewards automatically meaning after being on the server for five minutes you don’t need to type /daily it will trigger itself automatically and when a new day begins if you’re already online at that time it will also self-trigger so you don’t need to do it.

We hope you like these changes I’m sure the new convenience features outweigh the new 5 minute minimum wait time.

Seven

Posted by on Sep 28, 2017 |

On the 26th of September our server turned seven years old, quite the milestone. Not many servers have been around that long, practically any server you think about or have played on has started after us or closed before us.

I just want to thank everyone for choosing to play with us on RENMX, we’ve made a lot of great things together on our server and I personally am very grateful for the experiences I’ve had with you all.

Here’s to another seven years!

Server back online

Posted by on Sep 14, 2017 |

Apolagies for the long downtime, we did hit a few snags while cloning our drives (booting issues) which meant the update took five hours instead of the intended 1-2 hours.

However the good news is the upgrade is complete, we’re now humming along on our new faster and higher capacity SSD storage. We’ve already moved our MySQL databases over to the new SSD storage and well .. logblock is screaming fast. More than 500x faster.

We also took this opportunity to update all our software. The operating system, Java, Spigot and Bungeecord were all updated to their latest versions so we shouldn’t need another maintenance window for quite some time.

Thank you for your patience and happy gaming.

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.
