Super Noobs

Super Noobs is a Minecraft server community! Come play on Scarlet, our towny server!

Violet will be launching tomorrow at 12PM MST, so December 12th at 12PM MST for those reading this in the future. I know you're there... So start sharpening your swords!! Well. Violet has a separate inventory than Violet, so don't bother with that on Scarlet. That being said... I'm not great with factions myself, so tonight I'll probably go make my own little faction while no one else has access to the server... Muhahah! But this is more for testing purposes anyways. I'm excited.

With the factions server, it'll be more of the wild west. So, I'm genuinely curious if there are elements of that we could use on Scarlet. I have been getting annoyed by the amount of people who pretty much just don't claim anything so that they don't have to pay any upkeep. But I'm curious what your thoughts are. Reply to this thread with comments, and vote in this poll thingy.

Violet

Greetings folks! I'm here to confirm that yes, Violet will be launching tomorrow. The network will be offline starting at 12AM MST GMT-7 (December 2st), and will offline until 5AM MST GMT-7 (December 2nd) Violet will be our first ever Factions server. So bear with us as we as staff acclimate to the new systems, and growing pains as we expand to the new digs. In addition this server will the first 1.11 server on supernoobs.net.

Scarlet
Tonight will also be the first major test for 1.11 on Scarlet. All things permitting, by tomorrow Scarlet will be running 1.11. That being said, there's still always a chance that the server is not updated.

Azure
As many of who have tried Azure know, it's a little bit of a cluster fuck at the moment. Azure was launched a few years ago riddled with issues, and hasn't ever really had a major reset. Well- today I'm announcing coming in the next month we will be resetting Azure. All islands, members, backpacks, and inventory data will be reset. We will be granting players bonuses based on the current island level of the player. In the case of an island with more than one member, all four members will receive the same rewards on the reset server.

As part of the reset, I plan to have a working nether, larger island spaces, and reworked anticheat measures. In addition the shop prices will be touched up, spawners will be added, and the voting crate will be reworked.

HERE BE RULE CHANGES

So, I've been wanting to touch these up for quite a while and am just now getting around to drafting all of these. These are not set in stone, and are meant to reflect the values of the community. Minimizing misunderstanding between staff and players is a number one priority. Being reasonable with our rules makes this place what it is. The wiki, /rules, and signs in spawn will be updated tomorrow with these rules, however I...
Greetings all! Some of you may find the new crate to be of interest! Go check it out now!! /warp crate. There's some items and enchantments I'm pretty excited about in there, but I'm curious how many people will actually get them! The crate will last for another week or two then expire, so grab it while it's here!

Also to celebrate 'Merica and American consumerism we're having a sale for the weekend! 44.44% off EVERYTHING. I will be a little disappointed if there aren't a few bonus McMMO events thrown on because of this. The sale is in place NOW and expires Monday at midnight at what I think is Mountain Standard Time, but could just have easily have been British time. If it ends at the British time I will extend it a bit more to make up for it.

Anyways, I've stayed up far too late preparing this and should get some rest. Enjoy!

edit: You might see some NPCs around spawn! Do their quests and get free shit!
Today many of you will have noticed that 1.11 has hit the launcher! I'm pretty excited about it, and I wanted to go over some things that will be happening over the next week in preparation for the new world.

We will be updating to 1.11 next week depending on how stable 1.11 is. Before we update I will post a notice about extended maintenance.

In the meantime you will need to keep your client on into 1.10.*. If you can't connect because of the version, you can usually find plenty of tutorials online, but for the sake of lazy people, here's a link to the first tutorial I found on how to change versions.

Scarlet will not get a world wipe. However, the end and nether will be reset during the process of upgrading to 1.11. Along with Scarlet updating, I will be launching Violet our new Factions server. Much of this information will be reiterated in the bullet points below for those who can't read a wall of text.

And if you need some hype for 1.11, here's a nifty little trailer Mojang put together!


Things That Will Happen When We Update To 1.11(Hopefully)
  • Scarlet
    • NO WORLD RESET
    • End Reset
    • Nether Reset
    • Old chunks recycled - If a chunk has not been loaded in the past two months it will be removed and regenerated to allow new structures to spawn!
    • Dynmap reset - Just to account for the nether/end/and old chunks being recycled
  • Violet New!
    • Factions!
    • Different rules than Scarlet, raiding/griefing/pvp focused server
    • Hopefully serve as an alternative for people who do want to grief so they don't do it on Scarlet. .-.
    • Fresh 1.11 world
edit: The plugins are getting closer to ready, but are still not quite there....
There's been a rift to another world that has opened! Use /warp hallowstear (edit: use /warp crate and go into the portal on your left for now) to venture into the broken world.

Hello Noobs. Kerp here. Got some big news for the server. In the very near future we are going to start hosting more events and minigames on the server. So, in effort of put these events together I am recruiting a council of minds to assist me in coming up with ideas. These fun and games will most likely be themed, as holidays are the easiest to work with in generating ideas, but will not be limited to just holidays as I'd like to create a wide array of events and fun for everyone to join in on.

This is step one, so currently I am only looking for people to join me in creating a committee of minds to generate ideas. So if you've ever wanted to create things in Minecraft but lacked the technical access on Scarlet because it is a survival server or lack the know how of crafting these wacky ideas, this is your group to join. If you've got ideas for Scarlet, or the entirety of the Noobs hub, join me, we'll make your ideas come to life and you can contribute to Supernoobs in new and fun ways.

I'd like to lay some guidelines down as to how this operation will be managed. First of all please make sure you have Teamspeak and have logged into the Supernoobs channel, I will be trying to host meetings so that everyone may participate and be heard. Voice communication is so much easier than many threads of messages. Second, please like our facebook page @ https://www.facebook.com/SuperNoobs/?fref=ts because I will also be trying to boost the pages popularity and information. I'm going to advertise out there in the interwebs in attempt to bring in more players. Thirdly, I would appreciate people to join who have a long term vested interest in the server. That doesnt mean I dont want new people, but I would like to see some sort of dedication to the server to be included in this committee, that way we arent left wondering where our newest progeny has disappeared to as deadlines for events get closer, dont want to be left hanging with an incomplete event or job....
Hello everyone, and welcome back to some more juicy build competition information; this time, the decided winners of the build comp!

Hiya folks! This Saturday I will be resetting the end at "high noon"(12PM MDT! The enderdragon will respawn and... All of those tasty Elytra's will be reset. I hope you look forward to it as little as I do!

As part of this, it is necessary for me to shut down the server to cleanup files for the End, then the server will be brought back online.

Happy crafting!
