An Evolving World - Changes to Dreamcraft's world and rules - Lostuser - 06-27-2015

Hello Dreamcraftians!  I hope you are all well.  You especially, good sir/ma'am, are looking mighty fine today.  Keep it up!

I have a few topics today of great interest, of which will be put in the works as soon as this is posted or over the course of the next two weeks.  Stay tuned!

The nether will be reset in one week.  At the beginning of the map, it was said that the nether would reset monthly, but we haven't been on top of that, so we're starting now.  With that said, on July 4th, 2015, the nether will be refreshed back to its original form.  Glowstone, netherbrick, quartz, and all the other nether-related things will be back in an abundant supply.  Of course, this means that builds and items/chests in the nether will be removed as well.  Please clear your things out of the nether over the next week, or else it will be lost forever and staff can't get it back for you.  Talk to LostUser if you think a build of yours(in the nether) should be saved from annihilation.  I will not be saving small personal bases or farms, so please only ask if it's something of a larger significance.

After this reset, the next reset will be September 1st, 2015.

A player will now automatically /AFK at 3 minutes of doing nothing, and will be auto-kicked from the server at 15 minutes of afk time. While afk, players can't pick up items.

Trying to bypass the afk rule by using afk machines or mcmmo grinding machines will result in punishment.  The punishments are listed below.

1st time) Kick "Please don't use afk or mcmmo grinding machines, they are not allowed"
2nd time) Kick "Please don't use afk or mcmmo grinding machines, second warning"
3rd time) Tempban 12 hours "Using afk/mcmmo grinding machines, third warning"
4th+ time) Tempban 24 hours "Using afk/mcmmo grinding machines."

You won't be perma-banned for using afk/mcmmo machines.  However, continual use will result in 24 hour bans.

A team of staff members are working together to do a massive rehaul on everything related to our economy here at Dreamcraft.  Jobs, city requirements, shops, and the money itself will be just a few of the features changed and/or added.  We're looking to make spending and getting money in-game FUN!  Feel free to offer ideas as well; after all, these changes are for you!  For now, message LostUser with any ideas you have and they'll be sure to be discussed.

Spawn building looks cool, and the area around it looks "alright".  We want to change that.  Look out for some changes around spawn to make it look large and in charge!  For now, staff will be making the builds, but we will be including members interested in leaving their mark on Dreamcraft's spawn later on.  Message LostUser if you're interested and you'll be notified when we start reaching out.

To promote community and economy, the spawnfarm and villager areas at spawn will be removed and replaced with admin shops within the next two weeks.  The spawnfarm will be converted into an admin seed shop that will sell most, if not all, seeds for you and your friends to start a farm or keep one going.  The villager area will be converted into a general admin shop with a rotating inventory each week.  Expect to see things like mob eggs and high-level enchanting books on occasion!  If you want to find some villagers still, do not fret; many players have villagers in their towns and will be more-than-likely to let you trade with them for some precious emeralds.

An area northwest of the spawn cuboid has been set aside and will be built to handle player-made shops!  The details are currently being fleshed out, but right now we can say that members(and staff) will be able to purchase, with REM, a plot at the player marketplace and use it to build an interesting shop building.  You can build a shop anywhere on the server, but purchasing one of the shop plots will give players easy access to your shop in a neat-looking area.  A Stargate will link spawn to the player marketplace, allowing for easy access.  Prices on plots and plot size will be up for viewing later this week.
