Hey everyone. I just want to take a few minutes of your time and apologize for the monstrosity of an event we called Prom v2.0.
I'll just come out and say what you all were thinking - it was terrible. I agree, it was. I had literally no time to prepare anything, which made me end up having to dump it on Jon the night before, who was already tired and thus missed a lot of stuff. The build team let me down as well by waiting until the last minute to get the map done. That's why it wasn't that great either.
Prom was a fantastic event last year, 80ish people stayed the entire time. I wanted the same level of success this year, but since it wasn't prepared in time, that wasn't possible. I don't like being the host of events that don't meet anyone's expectations. All of the harsh comments and complains yesterday were well deserved. I just wanted to take this time and apologize for letting you all down.
I would like to have a make-up event sometime soon, but I'm not sure how soon it'll be...
Yes, it's that time again! We want to hear from you about things you would like changed, added, or removed from the ParadiseMC Network. Please click here to leave your suggestion. We will make a follow up post with which suggestions we took.
Hello! Above is a timeline for Prom.
Reminder: The skin competition closes on Thursday, the 27th. If you haven't entered your skin yet, please do so here!
Also, if you haven't nominated anyone for Prom King/Queen yet, please do.
I have a rather sad announcement for you all today. We have decided to discontinue the Freelance server. The server is not performing well and we already have a classic survival and towny survival server. I know many of you may be frustrated with this situation, but it is in our best interests to remove it. That doesn't mean we could add it back in the future, though.
If you had a rank on this server and would like compensation, please create a ticket and we will work out a way to credit your account.
Just a quick reminder that TNT will be enabled on Factions today at 4:00 Eastern Standard Time. This is a big deal, it's time to destroy all of your enemies with some dank TNT rapid fire cannon ish. Are you excited? Because I'm not.. when TNT is enabled the map gets trashed and then I have to work on a reset. But don't worry, no reset soon .
Just wanted to take a second to say Happiest of all Easters to you! I hope you are all spending time with family today, and of course playing with your friends on your favorite minecraft network. I'm thankful for all of you who have played, developed, created and brain stormed for Paradise over all of these years. I truly appreciate everyones support, from players, to staff, and our developer. Simply thank you for everything.
On a side note, we are currently holding a 75% sale in the store today. You can check that out here if you're interested. That's all for now, take it easy!
Hello! Just wanted to inform you all of a couple of changes.
First of all, I rewrote the entire rules page to condense it, make it look nicer, and make things easier to find. I removed irrelevant, old rules that no longer apply to our network, and added the most current and updated ones.
Please review the updated rules and make yourself aware of the changes (which are few, but some extra things are clarified).
Factions - Inappropriate builds are now allowed within the confines of your base. (See "Factions Rules" for more specifics)
Factions/Prison - nether portal traps are not allowed. All other traps are still allowed.
Website Rules - more specific mini-modding explanation
TeamSpeak/Discord voice channels - seriously condensed the rules, basically keep mature chat in the mature channels
Prison - added exceptions to the global rules (see "Prison Rules")
Skyblock - added list of allowed spawner types
This may come as a surprise to some of you, but Nick has been preparing a fresh factions server to accommodate our new players. Along with a blank map, he has implemented a bunch of new features and fixes to make sure you have the best experience possible. Also, I have added some new custom enchants. The following is a comprehensive list of everything new.
Stackable water and lava buckets
Genbuckets allow you to quickly generate walls of cobblestone.
To craft: empty bucket, 3 cobblestone. /warp genbucket
As few of you probably know, today is arcade's 3rd birthday. That's three entire years since I wrote the first line of code for arcade, and it seems like really long time ago now. Arcade encapsulates much of the global functionality of the network such as cosmetics, chat management, infractions, global ranks, g-tokens, mob stacking, and other features; as well as some entire servers such as Skywars and Trenches. On account of the celebration, I am hosting a public contest to guess the number of lines of code in Arcade. That includes everything in these folders. The person who guesses closest to the actual number (above or below) will receive a 20 credit voucher in their gifts inventory. This contest will close 24 hours from now, that's 11:30 EDT on 3/25/17.
The contest is now closed, the winner is HARRYPOTTER22 with the guess of 350,000, and the correct number is 355,506.
