SIGN UP FOR THE SECRET SANTA 2017! CLOSED
User avatar
Hello folks!

Pb got the bright idea to reincarnate the good old secret santa event! Yet ofcourse he has to do "more important" stuff so I was passed on the task of managing it. :roll:

So as usual, you just sign up down in the comments section or by letting me know in one way or the other that you are in. :D By the 11th all participants will be mixed together and everyone will be assigned one random player to construct a special gift for. Shhh... here's the secret part, dont tell anyone who you got! Who knows, maybe there is an extra reward to collect if you manage to guess who your secret santa was?

The event will be held at the roadcrossing between Carthage and Deltaria (x:1130 z:-440, magna). Note that the last day to sign up is the 10th .

Happy gifting! :D



EDIT: Thank you all for signing up! The event is now CLOSED and its time to get on with the gift making! :D I want to clearify that I did not intend for all of you to build your gifts as some seem to think, and I therefore have no plots for you to build on. But If you want to build something for this, be my guest! I'd build elsewhere and leave a note in one of the gift chests with the co-ords, but you are all creative, you'll figure it out! [:

New Mining World Available

New Mining World!



We have just introduced a new world to our set of EC Worlds. For your resource needs and mining pleasure, welcome to



Mining



This world is NOT for permanent building. You can build shelters and so forth, but the world is subject to being replaced when we think it should be, and builds will not be saved. Chests will lock. Please remember that Shulker boxes do not lock.



The world is a bit more dangerous than our normal survival worlds. Here are just a few of the differences.

  • No claims. (You will get a no permission message if you try.)

  • Difficulty is set to Hard

  • Creepers destroy blocks when they explode

  • Endermen steal blocks

  • Players and mobs trample crops



Mine, strip mine, gather resources to your heart's content.



You will find the portal in the Hub on the main level. The Horizons portal has been moved downstairs.



The Magna spawn also has a portal to the Mining world.

Maps, oh glorious maps
User avatar
Our maintenance downtime yesterday was largely for this: http://www.escapecraft.net/maps/ and this http://z.escapecraft.com/maps/

The link on the front page side side nav bar is updated with it as well. They are not real time, and will update every morning at 6am server time, but now you can see your builds and plan your global conquer tactics.

We are going to look at going to dynamic maps in the future, but careful planning will have to be done for that, since it's usually resource intensive on the server for them, but we'll see what can be done.

Let a staff member know if you have any questions.



--edit-- Added in the dynmap link
