Auction > Shops, Ranged Chat, and more

Hey guys, I’m going to be changing some stuff on the server, but nothing major. Here’s what’s going to be new:

  1. Auctions
  2. Ranged Chat
  3. Tweaking of chat settings

You may have noticed that there are no shops anymore. I personally hated shops because it ruined the fun in Minecraft. You didn’t have to work for anything, you just had to sell dirt and then buy resources. I figured that rather than getting rid of user commerce all together, I would substitute it with an auctions system. With this system in place, you will be able to auction off items at a set value. As more people auction, the value increases. The final bidder will earn the item and hand over the item requested as trade.

Another change is ranged chat. Some of you may be wondering what ranged chat is. What ranged chat achieves is a “radius” of who can here you. For example, if nobody’s near by, your chat will not be heard. In order to speak globally, just add a ! to the beginning of your message:


  • Hey guys → “Your message was not heard.”
  • !Hey guys → [Member] username: Hey guys

Livecraft’s back online!

As you should have noticed, Livecraft died. We had a hard drive failure; however, the hard drive survived. The data, however, did not. Everything was wiped, including the website, server, and everything. Me, Evil, and Medius have spent the last week getting Livecraft online and working nicely. It should be a lot faster than it used to be.

What’s new:

  1. Craftbook replaced Essentials
  2. Craftbook replaced TimeLock
  3. PermissionsEx replaced Essentials GroupManager
  4. ChatManager replaced Essentials Chat

Command differences:

  1. No more /tpa. Use /call instead.
  2. /back = resume from /afk.
  3. Use /return to go back to a location you were just at.

Other changes:

  1. Website died. D:
  2. Everything else died
  3. Server was totally reset.

I know many of you probably lost items from the new map, but there was no possible way to recover the lost data. Even if I could have recovered the map, it would have been severely corrupted and just not worth fixing.
