Hi, I am back. As many have noticed, I kinda quit minecraft because I got tired of it and because of school. However, I did miss the people yelling at me and being upset about factions.

Currently I am working on redoing whole cowcraft and the way servers work / are setup. It may not be visually impressing as you may not even notice the massive changes, but it will definitely make my life a lot easier managing servers. It should also make servers a lot more stable.

The current plan is to add support for client versions all the way from 1.7 to 1.11.2. Most of the servers are going to stay at 1.8 but creative may be updated to higher version. Pvp based servers are going to stay at 1.8 with support of 1.7 clients.

The other part of the plan is to actually fix broken servers. All of this is already in progress!!! Also minez aka cowz is coming back with the old old map!! The towny and factions servers are planned to reset. As for factions, we won't be doing any more "fancy" stuff....

Sorry for taking this long to post this thread, there will most likely be more polls in future depending on the suggestions this thread receives. Here is the first poll:

Feel free to suggest and discuss anything for the new factions reset.

We're currently working on setting up google forms polls to give community full power of deciding what kind of factions we should have. We will be resetting factions once we get enough poll results, the google form for next factions reset should be finished next week.

We will be changing kits and trying to make factions more balanced. You will be able to vote for what type of factions you want as soon as poll goes live.

Meanwhile, I will be launching survival server pretty soon as it's been down for a long time now. It's not nearly as complex as factions so it shouldn't take long before it goes live. We will be also resetting Towny and trying to make it more balanced. There are no set dates, but I will try to post updates more often.

HungerGames are in need of major fixes too. We will be redoing whole server, adding more features and maps. Our current goal is to update and fix all of the broken servers.

Thank you for your patience.

Lots of fixes and changes for the new factions server!

  • Supporter and Elite now has access to /kit armor1 and armor2.
    Armor1 provides prot1 with sharp1
    Armor2 provides prot2 with sharp1
    This means higher rank armor kits were bumped to armor3, armor4 and armor5

In honor of the factions reset today, all bans have been reset!
I know this may make some people angry, but it also allows people to come back who have been banned for a very long time. Good luck in the reset eveyone!

Thank you for helping us test factions, we have learned a lot and will be changing big amount of things. The response wasn't exactly what we expected. There were a lot of confusing and complex features which will be improved upon.

The feedback really helped a ton, our original idea was reshaped into something new that everyone will enjoy. This is a list of things that have been already changed in beta 2. The list will be a lot longer once factions actually launches.
  • Optimized TNT for the cannons, we been testing a lot of different cannons and it seems like all of the most important cannons are working flawlessly. The cannons are using 1.7 mechanics.
  • Added TNT Fill for filling up dispensers with TNT easier
  • Added flying, you will be only able to fly in your claims and if there's no neutrals or enemies in a specific radius. This will help a lot when building big cannons and bases
  • Added crates
  • Optimized anti cheat
  • mcMMO stats will be tracked...
