Updates, News & More

xtechgamer735 a posted Jul 8, 16

Im writing this to let you know of a few of the changes around SP over the past week, as well as some news. But lets get started with the updates! The main, new noticable things have been added. Im sure you have seen some of these around already:

  • Scratch Cards
  • Bug Fixes
  • /enchanttable command

Scratch cards have been added to the server as a fun way to win prizes of all varieties. You can buy these in game or get them for free with each donation from the store.

Im trying to fix as many bugs as possible, keep reporting them and we'll keep squashing them. I plan to get through all the currently open ones as soon as possible so dont worry.

Finally, as of today you can now purchase a new package from the store - the /enchanttable command! This allows you to open your own portable enchanting table and get upto level 30 enchants from anywhere! Ill leave a link here.

Now for the bad news, I am on holiday for the next two weeks and with hotel wifi its unlikely ill be in game much for this time... However the rest of the admin team is here as always. Hopefully i will be able to get on here though.

Keep your thoughts coming on the player feedback post, and look forward to some big updates soon.

Don’t be scared, I won’t leave, but I won’t be the owner of SkyPrison anymore either. It’s been a great pleasure starting SkyPrison and being the owner for the past 42 months but it’s time that SkyPrison moved on with another owner.

I know that most of you won’t agree with me and simply don’t want to see me step down. But this is something I have given a lot of thought and discussed with the admins as well. In the last year I didn’t have much time for SkyPrison and it was hard for me to manage SkyPrison next to the things that I’m doing on a daily basis. The player count went down and something had to be done. I figured that choosing a new owner would be the best option for SkyPrison.

Like I said, this doesn’t mean that I will be gone, you will see me popping online from time to time to update some plugins or maintain the server. But I won’t be making a new plugins, that is xtech’s job.

Just like in SM64! (Minus the paintings!) and big thanks to Moderator tntexplodee for pioneering the game mode!

Alex's Secret Slide is a Minecraft Sliding track where you slide using your row boat to the bottom of the track! Its similar to how sliding works in Mario 64. There are jumps, hair-pin turns and massive turns where you can drift-turn in Minecraft.

 

Features:
1. Fast track design, the track is designed to be run at high speed
2. Drift Turns, spectacular drifts can be achieved at turns
3. Sky-Jumps, fly over breath taking track gaps and bounce to new levels!
4. Hair-Pin Turns, drift turn 180 degrees and reverse direction of travel!
5. Multiplayer compatible, play alone or race with friends!
6. Stabilizer steps, after a turn don't lose control, the staircases will reduce sideways slide!
7. Easy teleportation back to the start of the game!

You can also download this game mode to play for yourself in Single Player from here!

If the link above does not work use this.

LTank7 o If a second slider course is made, maybe add a reward for completing it and/or for fastest time. Just a thought
Mr_Alesaki21 Oh my name is in it I know it doesn't refer to me but excellent
_SkyAngel This track was a lot of fun!

Hey There,

The player count of skyprison isn't as high as it used to be, we are working on changing that, one of the things we did was appoint a new admin (xtechgamer735), You might know him since he's been a member of skyprison for a long time, but also the owner of Oceanprison. He joined the admin team and will make improvements where needed in the near future. Here's a little introduction that he wrote:

I first joined sky prison three years ago (almost to the day) and as I climbed the ranks I became a guard for a short time. Shortly after this OceanPrison opened, which to cut a long story short, I now hold the Admin/Developer roll on. I am joining the sky prison admin team to help shape the future of the server as well as helping everyone else in the team keep it fun to play on. If you have any questions for me, please fire them over either in game or on the forum.

Then for some not so good news, The server costs a lot of money every month, earlier this year we had a couple of months where we had a couple of donations which wasn't enough to keep the server online. Luckily we have some reserve which we used to pay for the server costs and later in march it went a bit better. Then something terrible happened, In may a certain user did a chargeback on all of the payments they made. This means that the one that donated charges skyprison to give me money back. Normally when people request refunds it's not so bad, but when it's done this way skyprison has to pay 20$ for every chargeback request. This chargeback was for 19 payments, you can do the math. At that point skyprison was actually broke. We had a meeting to decide what we would do next, because closing skyprison wouldn't be an option. We decided to wait for the donations to come back and use that money to cover the costs and in the meantime we would move to another cheaper server to reduce the costs.

So, for now you don't have to worry, skyprison has strong roots and won't go down that easily, we will find other solutions to survive if neccesary.

You probably haven't seen me online alot lately, this is because i've been very busy with school projects. In one of the projects, a random city generator, i chose to use MineCraft and my school allowed it.

The goal of the project was to make a procedural city generator, you can see the result below. Part of the goal was to make it look realistic, like don't have roads next to each other, no houses in other houses etc. and in theory it should be infinite. Based on different parameters it's possible to generate any city you like, big roads/ small roads, big gaps/ small gaps, number of trees. I made everything into a plugin which i will probably release later on on Spigot. The result can be seen below. If you have questions about the project, feel free to ask

_LifeIsGames Damn it looks so good
Xenon923 I want to have savefile for that... It's so amazing.
[STAFF] Loquos o I wish Realms would spawn cities that big. Nice work!
