The Purple Comet is back, and with it comes the brand-spanking new set of Purple Coins! Under the comet's corrupting influence, precious Purple Coins have been scattered across the land. Following the annual tradition, a crowd has gathered to compete to see who can collect the most! Speed is essential, especially given the recent scout reports of airships in the area.
This year, Team Prism challenges two-time champions Team Crimson in the race for the coins!
What is the Purple Comet Event?
The Purple Comet event is an annual high octane intense competition between two teams that takes place all over Zero. The teams search maps in attempts to find elusive Purple Coins hidden throughout them. It tests your skill and knowledge of maps, but is still accessible for people of all skill levels.
On Sunday, August 4th at 8 AM EST (Noon UTC), the server will go down for a period of extended maintenance. This is expected to last for approximately 4-5 hours. During this time, I will be migrating the server to new hardware that should mitigate some of the resource problems that were introduced in 1.14. The new hardware includes a stronger processor (both individual core and multi-core performance are stronger), and additional RAM. The server will continue be hosted out of a similar location to where it currently is. Tests on the new hardware showed improvements for world switching, server ticks "TPS", and overall higher responsiveness compared to existing hardware.
July 22nd, the server will go down for a short period of time during maintenance.
During this maintenance the server will be updated to the Minecraft 1.14 Update.
During the maintenance, the following will be done:
Update the server to 1.14, which includes:
Full relighting of Zero, Theta and Delta.
Updating of plugins.
Do note that come weeks after this update the server is likely to be performing worse than normal, and shortcuts previously not possible may appear, so please help out and report issues and shortcuts as soon as possible to the forums. The community and staff has taken measures to combat these as much as possible, but we cannot guarantee we caught everything.
Estimated start time of maintenance: Maintenance completed!
I would like to thank everyone who helped find shortcuts and breakages on the test server. Thanks for the efforts!
With the release of 1.14, many maps will break. One of the most notable of these is Miner's Millions, as a few of the levels will no longer function due to crafting changes. Due to this, and due to the low traffic of the puzzle path, we are removing the puzzle path from Hardcore on or near Monday the 17th. While in most cases being able to play maps that are currently in Hardcore is not a motivation to remove them from Hardcore, this is a very special case. Any blues that wish to complete hardcore using this path must do so before the given time. If you are still in the puzzle path, we will convert your checkpoint to the main path as follows:
Puzzle 1 (The Varied 11) -> Main Path 4 (Funkytown)
Puzzle 2 (Viemort) -> Main Path 6 (Lava Maze)
Puzzle 3 (Miner's Millions) -> Main Path 8 (MYTH)
Puzzle 3 Checkpoint 2 or 3 (Miner's Millions Level 11 or futher) -> Main Path 9 (Vil Bo)
If you are in the puzzle path after the 17th, your spot in Hardcore may be removed. If this happens, do...
Lots of new features have been added including discord account association.
You can associate your discord account here this may enable future discord functions for you.
Tool bar is the key
Here you can find lots of additional features, such as map submissions, ban appeals, minr map, wiki and more. The tools menu works on a permission basis so users should only see forms and features that are relevant to them. This is also the case with additional staff tools.
Reactions have been fully re imported, some of which have been kept and the others which have been merged with their closest reaction type.
Over the coming weeks i'm sure i'll be making tweaks and changes to improve user performance and additional features.
Forum will be closed for a predicted 24 hours from Sat Afternoon (GMT+2) whilst we make the upgrade to Xenforo 2.1
After testing the upgrade we are happy to say that everything runs smoothly, post ratings have been imported however i will be limiting rating types in XF 2 and keeping them clean and simplistic. Many of the 9000 current ratings will be converted into likes instead of their original meaning.
The most important forum forms (Green app, Ban Appeal, Map Submissions) have been recreated in a new addon and will be imported post upgrade. Other non essential forms will be recreated at a later date.
The forum will look much the same just a lot sleeker, more optimised for other devices and a bunch of new thread creation functionalities including spoilers, tables and a heap of media friendly BBCODES.
Most of our current plugins will be lost, however XF2 has added many of the features these plugins once used.
Discord will be fully accessible during this time if you need to...
