Super Noobs

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

I will be taking down the server to perform upgrades to the server in preparation for the Christmas player population. The server should be down anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour. I thank you for your support and patience while we deal with these issues. You guys are the best.

Hey! If you somehow have avoided every single message in game about the keys, let's cover the basics!
  • Head on over to the donation store category, type in your username and then choose "Buy", you will not be charged for this, and it will not ask for your credit card so long as you choose the correct category.
  • Then wait 1-5 minutes, you do not need to log out, but you will need to have an open inventory slot
  • Once you have the key, use the command "/spawn" to head back to our spawn, then head back and to the left until you reach the snow covered crate room
  • Then use the key on the crate with snowflakes falling out

Also for the lunatics who have read this far down, there's a temporary 1 in 100 chance of getting a crate key from voting until the 31st. The crate keys must be used by the 31st. The donation store sale will also be ending on the 31st. Also, I love you.
Not a whole lot to say here, so I won't waste your time. Here's the new things.

  • /recipe [item] - Looks up the recipe of an item
  • /recipe - Looks up the recipe of the item you're holding
  • While in the recipe menu, clicking on an item will show you that recipe
Also new! There's a random teleport in spawn. To the right of the rules board there's a portal. Simply walk through and it will teleport you avoiding all towns. Perfect for finding a new settlement. :D
It's time to thin the herd.

We have 17367 residents (cleared a few months ago), 922 towns, 138 nations, and 80261 claimed chunks in our Towny universe. It's about time we clear some space. And we're going to re-enable upkeep now.

A large part of why this has been accumulating is because we were forced to disable upkeep a few buggy Towny patches ago. While we haven't tested in full production, I believe the issue should be fixed now. So, starting next week. (December 17th) we will be re-enabling upkeep, and raising the price on new towns. In the case that... Well. That upkeep doesn't work out the way we hope, we'll be making several backups of the database beforehand and disabling revert on unclaim. Meaning that hopefully if someone were to lose their town we should be able to recover everything with no issue.

That doesn't mean you shouldn't worry. You should still be worrying about having enough money in your town banks to cover daily upkeep. Also, keep in mind that with taxes now being collected, you might be kicking some residents out of your town unintentionally if your tax was set higher than the amount they have now. I would recommend setting taxes to 0 for the first few days of upkeep.

But brace yourselves... It might be a bumpy ride! Let's hope it works out!

Edit: Post purge stats

So as some of you already know, we have a few new plugins! Among those is a new voting system, a new chat system, and the largely requested /ignore. I'll go over the new commands and the basic idea behind them.

There are no longer any top voter rewards at the end of each month; the voting points and BossShop systems are still in place, however. Your points will carry over and voting as a whole is largely unchanged. There is soon to be cross-server voting and rewards for voting on our other servers, more info on this will come sometime soon™.

/vote - Brings up the vote command menu
/vote claim [all | #] - Claims your voting rewards
/vote sites - Displays all of the links to the voting sites

Chat has had a pretty huge overhaul; there are still the old channels (General, Town, Nation, Local, and Marry, but no Mayor at the moment, RIP) and some new additions (Help and Trade). Overall it's a lot more tidy (you can scroll over people's usernames to see their stats by the way).

/channel [channel name] - This will toggle you into the specific channel
/[channel abbreviation] [message] - This will send a message in the specified chat channel
without toggling.

You can ignore other users... you monster.

/ignore [username]
/ignore list - Lists all of your ignored players.

Please note that the contents of this page are subject to change at any time as we think of anything we left out, or decide to change it just because :D
Absolutely everything 33.33% off! Including ranks, which is the first time we've had a sale on them! The sale will end December 1st so make sure to grab what you want before then!

We've even updated the donation store! Boo yeah!

And yes, I know the sale's been going on since Friday. But I realized this is the one place I haven't mentioned the sale, so might as well. :)
Starting next month I will be experimenting with a few different voting systems, but the one that seems to be the most promising will change a few things, but let me go over the differences.

So, the awkward sad part, the Minecraft-MP top voters will be suspended all together. The rewards that some people are used to getting at the end of every month will end.

But onto more exciting things. The new voting system is intended to switch to voting for Super Noobs as a network, instead of just Scarlet getting the love. Currently I anticipate that you will only receive rewards for the server you're online when you vote, or the first one you login first.

This means that if you login to Scarlet and vote, you'll get your points same as always, but if you login to Azure instead, you'll get rewards related to Skyblock. I imagine that this will not be without some roadbumps, so sorry about that. We've had a number of comments about wanting to vote for Azure, but not really knowing how.

Along with this, I plan on changing the IP address advertised to players from scarlet.supernoobs.net to supernoobs.net. I'm not entirely sure what to expect, but worse case scenario, I end up rolling back everything to how it is now. But hopefully it works out well. :)
Howdy folks,
After playing on a skyblock server for a bit, I thought it was time to nag color into finishing our very own supernoobs.net skyblock server, Azure! ^0^
/server azure is open to the public access and now fully functional for your enjoyment. I am currently working on the shop for the server, so some items may not be available by the time you choose to play, but it should be fully available within the next day at /warp shop.

Did you guys know we have 4 servers in total under supernoobs.net? no? Well, you learn new things every day. ;) If you did, a big pat on the back to you, but... really, lets get at least Azure up and running and see some activity! ^-^

I'll be on both /server scarlet and /server azure, so if you ever feel lonely about going on azure when no one's on, feel free to chuck me a message and I'll probably pop over with you. :)

If you have any suggestions about Azure, feel free to leave a forum post in the 'server suggestions box' and tag/title it relevant to Azure; we'll be sure to check it out and hear(well, read ;P) you out! Anything from pricing suggestions to bugs, better plug ins, etc.

-Although please take note, these prices are for the added challenge to skyblock, give it a whirl before you think it's too hard!-
-/challenges brings up a list of tasks to complete with money, exp and material rewards, don't forget!-

Anyway, that's all there is too it! Come visit Azure and relish in skyblock awesomeness! ^-^

Have fun!

I suck at multi-tasking, and I hate November, so a whopping ten days after I had intended, here's the forum post! First off, the screenshot contest winners!
  1. Kerplunky
    The Treasury.png
  2. Benchriswii
  3. PearlescentMoon
So with those results, I think it's safe to say next contest Staff will not be allowed to win. However, all the winners should have a coupon code in your private messages. If you have a problem of course come talk to me.

Also, in case you didn't notice the count down on the website, we have an ender dragon fight coming this Saturday! We might have a special surprise planned for you all. ;) That'll be 2PM MST, which translates to 1PM PST, 4PM EST, and 9PM GMT. (Curious what time in your zone? Just search Google for "What time is 2PM MST?")

And then the next thing everyone's been asking about is the top voter rewards. Rewards will be delivered tomorrow morning

Heya guys! We have a new feature in game... The Auction House! Use of it is fairly straight forward, since it's mostly a GUI, but here are a few of the commands just for the hell of it.

  • /ah - Opens the auction house
  • /ah sell <price> - Lists the item you're holding on the auction house
  • /ah expired - View and manage your cancelled and expired items. (Also available via menu item in /ah)
  • /ah listed - View and manage items you are selling. (Again, also available via the menu item in /ah)
  • /ah help - Lists a help menu that will probably feel familiar to this post.
