So we finally setup TeamSpeak for CowCraft Network.
What is TeamSpeak?
TeamSpeak is alternative to programs such as Skype, on Skype you have to host call yourself meaning call will depend on your internet connection. Skype isn't very secure either and has security holes which can be abused in order to get your IP address. TeamSpeak is hosted on a dedicated server, meaning connection is going to be always good and there is no way of getting person's IP from TeamSpeak.
How do I connect to CowCraft's TeamSpeak server?
After you open the program you will see a tab called "Connections". Click on it, then click on "Connect" and menu will come up. Here you're able to type server address for the TeamSpeak server which is: ts.cowcraft.net
I did some small updates on many other servers but didn't write them down, all I can remember are few updates for factions server. I will try to keep all of my notes in one place for the next patch
[Re-added] 1v1 arenas (stats are disabled for now for testing purposes)
[Added] Donorshop (/warp donorshop)
[Re-added] Disguises, you can now use /dis [mobname] again
[Fixed] MobArena exp drops
[Fixed] Unable to open enderchests / hobochest at spawn
[Changed] Increased nether world border
[Changed] Reset FacWars
[Added] Selling spawn eggs in /shop, you're now able to buy default spawners and change them using spawn eggs
[Added] Selling crate keys in /ccshop
[Added] Rage faces, you can find them along with other smilies
[Upcoming] New theme, current one has a lot of issues and is not as smooth as I expected
So as all of you have noticed, there aren't as many updates or patches being posted on website. One of the reasons for that is we're working on updating whole network to 1.8 while also implementing support for name changes. That is our top priority at the moment.
There were also some issues with factions update, we didn't test the feature before posting them on website. We had a ton of issues with some of the features which forced us to take down some of the plugins.
Either way, more than a half of the posted features have been already implemented into the server. We're looking into a solution to fix this as soon as possible.
There's a lot going on in the background which is not being posted on website, patch notes will be posted on website this week.
Hello fellow cowcraftians, as most of you know, there was an update where you could change your current username to something new. In addition to that I created a post for you guys to comment what rank you lost and so on, we now have a new efficient way of doing that.
Courtesy of Zenexer you can now post everything that was lost here to this program, http://goo.gl/forms/9JZLNj0cHw
Everything will be kept safely documented and ready for the rank to be added.
If you experience any problems with the program, contact Zenexer. @Zenexer
This factions Update will be implementing some changes, some updates, but also some new additions.
I will start off with the announcement that Facwars will be resetting, it is basically a huge mess anyway, and it was our original plan to reset it about now anyway. Also, the nether will be expanding about 1000 blocks outward, to allow for new terrain, and especially, more available blaze spawners.
The following will be added as well:
Keys will be added to /ccshop (coins got from voting)
Spawners will be added to the regular shop, as well as /shop (you can expect fair prices according to spawner)
A new mob arena will be added, (this allows new players to get exp, and also is quite fun!)
A Donor shop will be added, with better items, and cheaper prices.
A bounty plugin will be added. (You can set an amount of money to...
Since the recent post a large quantity of you, mainly donors have changed your usernames and have lost your donor status, this thread will assist you in the return of your rank if you are unable to get in contact with staff members; I ask you to add the following information.
1) Your old IGN.
2) Your new IGN.
3) Your rank and what server you lost it on.
Ranks will be returned as soon as possible, you may mail either edy or myself if you have any inquires. @Jordan_Semo@edyyy
As many of you know, Mojang has implemented a one time name change. This small update will result in a temporary loss of donor status on all servers IF you have changed your name already. Kit-PvP will also be affected for our plugins' stats are co-existing with your original IGN. We advise you to NOT change your usernames until a solution has been found.
If you feel this will be an issue for you, make a comment in the section below and a staff member will be in contact with you ASAP.
PM Jordan_Semo, MonkeyComedyHD or Edy if you have lost your rank. Please add the following information; your rank, old IGN and new IGN.
So this patch took awhile. First of all, thank you for still playing and supporting the server! I just want to point out, I may seem inactive on forums but that doesn't mean I don't read threads and note all of issue reports.
I am also pretty active at responding to emails at [email protected] If you have any issues feel free to send me email. Please don't send any emails that are related to bans or staff appeals, we have a section for that on website.
To most of people I am known as a person that doesn't keep promises or is always AFK ingame. My timing on finishing projects isn't the most accurate, the reason for that is I have no idea what kind of issues might come up in the process of working on the project.
There haven't been a project that would go 100% smoothly, I am always expecting to stumble upon issues that might take time to solve. It's just the question how long it will take to solve it.
