We have pretty much finished configuring the server, fixing bugs, building areas, & adding new features.
But, we aren't done yet. We still need to test.
Why do we need to test? We must test numerous things including but not limited to voting, voting rewards, permissions, etc.
If we don't, serious issues can arise, and impact gameplay. Without testing, we wouldn't know what to fix to ensure everyone has a great time.
How long will it take? We expect the testing phase to take 5-7 days max. If you are interested in beta access to help us, please contact email@example.com about beta testing.
(Beta testers will receive $5k in-game currency on release, in addition to the extra $3k maintenance compensation, and if they have a forums account, the additional $3k will be awarded. With a total of $11k able to be earned, we recommend you signup for beta testing and a forums account. You can signup on our forums here: https://mc-creativebuilding.net/community/register)
We estimate a release date of July 2nd, 2023 @ 5:30 PM Eastern Time. However, this is a rough estimate. The time during that day (July 2nd) may fluctuate. But, we are confident that we can get it out by then.
The survival server will be receiving a reset for the new 1.20 update that Minecraft has released!
With this, we will begin Survival Server maintenance immediately.
Here is what will happen.
Start/End Times: Maintenance Start: June 23rd, 2023 @ 6:10 PM - USA Eastern Time.
Maintenance End: TBD (An ending date will be scheduled within the upcoming weekend) - Expected to be 1-3 weeks.
What happens during maintenance? When maintenance is active, players will be unable to join such server(s) as stated in the article. In this case, the "Survival" server will be temporarily inaccessible for the given period stated by the administrators.
During usual maintenance, servers are restarted to prevent performance issues. However, in this case, long-term maintenance has a different effect. It causes the server to constantly restart which will cause uptime issues, and will only allow staff members with permissions to join.
Why is survival undergoing maintenance? As stated, we are upgrading the server to 1.20
This process can take a while, as some plugins need additional time to be set up & updated to the latest release of Minecraft.
As the server is released again, some features may be limited or unavailable due to the plugins not being up to date.
What about my progress? Unfortunately, all progress from the 1.19 update will be wiped completely. This includes but is not limited to homes, bases, towns, purchased items in shops, purchased items from store.mc-creativebuilding.net (currency only, Global Ranks are with you forever), player shops, inventories, world data, & more.
Global ranks are not removed.
What will the new survival include? The new survival will include numerous amount of updates and features.
While we don't want to spoil all the fun, we will announce some of the upcoming features.
Land Claim (Not towny)
Maintenance compensation (Free $3k in-game currency. Only valid for the players who join within 3 days of the server opening)
And way, way more. You will have to see for yourself 😉
How will I know when the server is ready? You will see an announcement on Discord, our website VIA announcement, and email if you have an account with us on our forums. (Players with a forums account will receive an extra $3k in-game currency. The same terms apply)
You will also see an alert in the lobby server.
Today, we will be introducing the verified badge on our forums. Verified users are users who are notable, such as the following:
Staff Members, Official Businesses, CreativeBuilding | Network Official Partners, Notable Users (Users with a big following, who are on daily, and are trustable), Robots (Official, created by us. Such as "System Notifications").
Why did we make this feature?
- To prevent scams. Users can easily make their username look like an admin's, so by having this badge will help users know if this is a trustable account. Verification badges are given out randomly (To users), all staff members currently have these badges.
Verified Accounts & Verification Badges Look Like The Following:
Verification badges may also look like the following:
