First off, YAY! We've launched the TimGaming hardcore server! Here's what it's got:

  • PVP
  • Custom terrain generation(It's freakin awesome)
  • No "hard" protections
  • A form of "soft" protections, via Citadel. You can reinforce blocks, requiring them to take additional breaks before they're destroyed(And there's a whitelist of folks you let bypass it!)
  • SimpleClans(No clan homes, PVP is disabled between members)
  • Naturally spawning giants
  • A 171*171 protected, non-PVP spawn zone.
  • A new section of the forum specifically for it(Check there for the IP).
Next up, the drama on the HC server... Here's what happened. Basically, my goal was to HOPEFULLY have a server that doesn't require very much moderation, so that I could have some time to play it. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE our main server, but most of my time on it is spent MODERATING, not actually playing it, and Minecraft is a very fun game, and TimGaming is a very nice community, one that I'd like to play...

5/29: Server is whitelist while I finish up the last few things.

I need some opinions for what you guys like for the terrain on the hardcore server. I'll be leaving it up for a little while with creative mode on, so folks can fly around and look at the terrain. Use Shift+F3, and look at the biomes, and post here which ones you'd like to see more or less of. I'll randomly be resetting the map and changing settings as I gather opinions, until we end up with good settings.

The IP is timgaming.com:25566

First, some updates we've had recently that haven't been posted.
  • The mob egg plugin was removed because of players abusing glitches to change the egg types to hostile mobs.
  • The nether was reset.
  • The nether platform had the glass on top replaced to make it easier to see on and reduce lag.
  • The nether platform had trees added. I don't know why. Seemed fun.
  • Added a wall around the nether platform to prevent people popping out, swinging, and ducking back in to safety, with blocks you jump across to get back in, much like the old platform.
  • Removed a ton of excess lava around the nether platform.
  • All in all fixed the lag in the nether.
  • (This is an old one) Activated the PVP arena in spawn. To find it, spawn, and head right, towards the old spawn platform. Thank you to Elmier for designing it.
  • Stopped instant damage potions from hurting players, to prevent folks essentially spamming hand grenades in the nether. Thanks to boar401s2 for that plugin.
  • Promoted...

Last updated 5/9/2012. Please remember, hardcore does not mean that it MUST be vanilla hardcore!
So, I promised on the 1st that if you guys voted enough to keep us on at least the second page of Minecraftservers.net(HINT HINT HINT), I'd add a hardcore server. You guys have managed to do that, so we're getting a hardcore server! We just need to work out a few minor details first. It's a hardcore server, so there won't need to be much setup involved, it can go up quickly after we hammer out the details. Let's try to keep this short and to the point, and not break off into off-topic chatter. First, points that aren't really up for debate.
  • I HATE cheaters online. They ruin the game for everyone who isn't using a cheat, and generally, they're immature assholes who I wouldn't want to supply with a server to play on. I'm putting on an anti-cheating plugin.
Actually I think that's all for...

So here's where you get to have your say in which plugin gets made. You can only vote for one and voting will close in the 22nd at noon.

camjubinville: "can u make a plugin that u can place a sign in a protection/childlot that says lot 7k but when they right click it it will take 7k from there money if they don't have enough it will say u don't have enough tims to buy. thx from -camjubinville"

timtheblue: "I propose the ability to trade earned XP for XP bottles, perhaps even with a small convenience fee. I think this should be possible without client customization, but I could be wrong. That's all!

overkiller75: "Hello, I was just thinking maybe of a random events plugin. Maybe every so often an event would happen. For instance, maybe a mob or such would appear with extra health but very rewarding drops. Maybe have and ended dragon spawn. Maybe a heat appears filled with goodies. Maybe cookies rain from the sky. Anything that would be...
