The Super Fun Time B-Team Classic server is now open once again, after a year of absence.
This time, we have decided to make it a whitelisted server.
To play, you will need to download the Technic Launcher, and download the "Attack of the B-Team" modpack from there.

To apply, please provide the following details:

Your minecraft nickname:
Have you played on our B-Team server before?:
Tell us a bit about yourself:
Do you promise not to grief / abuse glitches?:
Do you promise to immediately register your account after being whitelisted? (/register <password>):

NOTE: Please check whether you can play before requesting to be whitelisted. If you played on our Survival server before, chances are you were pre-whitelisted.

NOTE: bTeam runs an outdated version of minecraft. It is important that you register your account with our secondary login system. To register: /register <password>, then every time you join /login <password> . Passwords are stored in cleartext due to how Minecraft works, and even though only a handful of people have access to these, we strongly suggest that you do not use a password that you currently use somewhere else. Also, we suggest a strong password made out of words, letters and at least one uppercase character.


NOTE FOR FORUM STAFF: Please do not delete this post. It is being used as a landing spot for the bTeam button on the front page. If you delete this post, you will break stuff.

After studying the cause of lag on Survival, we determined that to be Hoppers.
We are currently trying an experimental fix, which may or may not break your redstone contraptions.

Until now:
ticks-per:
  hopper-transfer: 8
  hopper-check: 1
hopper-amount: 1

This means: Every 8 ticks (1 tick = 1/20 of a second), one item gets passed through a hopper (note: this could be slower, the example above is for 20TPS)
Also every 1 tick, hoppers get checked!? (I don't understand that either)

Now:
ticks-per:
  hopper-transfer: 24
  hopper-check: 24
hopper-amount: 3

- Every 24 ticks , 3 items are passed
- Every 24 ticks hoppers are checked !?

Basically what you need to know is that hoppers will be slower, but will transfer 3 items at once instead of 1 to compensate for it.

Do not adjust any redstone yet, as this is just for a trial period and we are not sure if we are keeping this (if it turns out it helps immensely with the lag, we will)

Available now, in the premium shop for $6.4 (undiscounted price: $8)
http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/939613

ChestSort will automatically sort every chest after you have used it.

You can enable or disable this feature if desired with the simple command /chestsort. You can also sort your own inventory using the command /invsort. You can also use hotkeys (shift-click) within inventories to have them sorted, if you do not wish automatic sorting.

The chest contents are sorted by category and/or alphabetically and stackable things will be stacked. By default, items will be put before blocks. Automatic sorting will work with chests, enderchests, shulker boxes and barrels. Sorting by hotkeys works with the player inventory, too. Wool, Terracotta and other dyeable blocks will also be sorted by color.

First of all, I would like to thank @omelott for his suggestion and coming up with the perks (and @TeraStorm as well for perks/kits/organizing it)

Legend 1-5 were revamped (or rather their perks were).

Tycoon: - now gains /kit tycoon
Tycoon kit: experience_bottle 3 | pumpkin_pie 3 | wolf_spawn_egg 1 (24h cooldown)

Legends - these are your new perks (old perks were not kept, so only what is here is in the kit)

Legend: BCV, Cookie, Vanity Pack
Legend 2: Personal Weather
Legend 3: Compass
Legend 4: Big Warp Pack /bus
Legend 5: /Heal /sandwich

NOTE: Permissions are cumulative so for example Legend3 has Legend1+Legend2+Legend3 perks (except kits, those are per rank)



In addition to that /kit legend /kit legend1 through legend5 were added as well.

Legend kit: experience_bottle 4 | pumpkin_pie 3 | oak_sign 16 | cookie 1 | stick 1 (24h)
Legend2 kit: experience_bottle 5 | golden_apple 2 | horse_spawn_egg 1  (24h)
Legend3 kit: experience_bottle 6 | pumpkin_pie 4 | parrot_spawn_egg 1 | compass 1 (48h)
Legend4 kit: experience_bottle 7 | golden_apple 2 | cat_spawn_egg 1 (48h)
Legend5 kit: experience_bottle 8 | pumpkin_pie 5 | donkey_spawn_egg 1 (48h)

Please answer the following question:

- Your minecraft nickname
- Have you played on our bTeam server before
- Is this adorable or what (picture below)
11
So, I like copying succesful moves from other companies, so seing WoW classic released, kinda gave me an idea...


bTeam Classic. We re-launch b-team, we make it whitelist only and to be whitelisted you have to be a premium user. That means you have to have had at least one purchase from any of our premium shops.

This is just an idea, thoughts?

@TeraStorm @Kakota  - These are your new Community Ambassadors for Survival.
Their role, as described in my post towards them is:

Quoteommunity Ambassadors : @TeraStorm @Kakota
- Your duty will be to constantly communicate with people in-game / discord / forums and hear out their suggestions, hear their woes (eg: when they think a rule should be changed, etc). It will be your job to not only listen to a single person's wishes, but to try and ascertain what the entire community as a whole wants.
- Your tools will be the forum topics, the forum polls. Don't forget, when there's an important suggestion on forums to tag people in #announcements with @Survival Player so they don't miss it out. But forum should be the primary means of ascertaining what the community wants.

Poor: I would consider you not doing your job if players tell me: X never listens to my suggestions, they ignore me
Ok: You do your job, but you do it only for the bare necesities. No improvement comes from your position, and the players are frustrated about changes they requested and either were not listened to or ignored
Great: If your job is impactful, as in, due to you being a great community ambassador, things change that a lot of players are very happy about (eg all players want let's say the tax to be reduced to 5%. You come to me, I'll probably tell you well.. no, but prove me that everyone will be extatic and show me how that will help us as a server. And if you manage to prove me and it actually works out great, that will be considered as you doing your job great.

They will not get special ranks for this, as this is simply part of their Manager+ duties (they are the ones that got assigned this.

So yeah, just FYI, you will probably see them make a series of posts and polls soon, please get involved if you want

I'm looking for some places where we can advertise for $50-$100.
These places could either be web ads, or for example an advertisement on a huge discord server.

Things I am not interested in:
- Adsense (I just don't know how to make it work for us, last time I tried it cost us like $2 per click so that's just not worth it and in my opinion the worst unless you have a SEO team and a budget upwards of $5000
- Facebook Ads (Due to technical reasons eg: I owe facebook 300 euro from when I last advertised SFT and their shitty ads didn't stop because of a bug)
- Places that are not for advertising (eg: I am not interested in submitting the site to a vote site or something similar).


Would greatly appreciate it if you have some tips
16
Do you have any ideas about how to improve survival?
Do you know of a price that needs to be changed, or setting of a plugin that needs to be altered or a rule that would need changing or something else?

Then post your suggestion here.

NOTE: It is very important that you do not post unless you have a suggestion. A suggestion should also include the proposed resolution. Random example: I believe the warp limit is too low and should be raised to <xx>.

NOTE: Saying things like "I hate the ..." or "I dislike the..." without providing a resolution will not help at all. So please refrain


@SashaLarie @TeraStorm @MasterX70  - I need your help keeping this thread organized and clean. If you see a good suggestion, pin it to the first post, otherwise reply to the user and tell them why their suggestion is not relevant right now, or have them make a poll if it's something controversial.

I am sorry to inform you, but due to a breaking update by the EliteMobs dev, all the player progress will be lost (money, etc) and old elitemobs items will no longer work.
The developer ensured us that this is the last time player progress will be lost.

I have taken this advantage (having to reset all the configs and stuff) to also make the elitemobs a bit harder to kill by reducing their damage towards the player by 25% and increasing the damage the player deals to the elitemobs by 25%
22
I'd like to remind you about Patreon. Patreon is a way to support SFT long term and get awesome, unique perks, better than you could get even from the premium shop.
Even $5 / mo helps us immensely, please become a Patron! https://www.patreon.com/sftmedia


Examples of how Patreon helped us:
- It has helped us not have to be on the limit every month and not know whether we will be able to pay the bills or not. Even the $100 / mo we get right now for Patreon, gives us stability and ease of mind. I'd love if that amount was around $200 / mo, that way I wouldn't even have to beep you with this rare monthly message.
- It has allowed us to better organize tooling and java source code through the purchase of a github pro account. We now have all the SFT plugins in one place, and collaboration between devs is now actually possible (eg: if a plugin needs to be fixed, a dev can commit a fix, another dev can commit another fix).
https://github.com/SFTMedia (note, plugins are private so you won't see the sourcecode)
- You people may not know, but some plugins (from spigot) cost. They can cost anywhere from $1 to $20. Usually around the $10 mark. So basically Patreon has allowed us to make our servers more interesting and more diverse.


Thank you, and please consider becoming a patron. You get awesome perks, and my undying appreciation!
23
This is a rather big debate. I've seen people that are not happy with EliteMobs, but I'm curious to hear from those that are enjoying this plugin and want it to stay.
Vote in the poll. I will do whatever it is decided. I now believe that between pyrofishing, pyromining and pyromon we have enough diversity for players so elitemobs is no longer fully needed as a way to keep players interested.

General Announcements / Pokemon on Survival?
Jul 24, 2019, 04:10 pm


We have added a new plugin called PyroMon, made by our friend @PyroTempus
This plugin basically adapts PokemonGo to minecraft.

You will probably want to read the info in this page to learn how to use it: https://www.spigotmc.org/resources/pyromon-1-13-x-1-14-x.69110/

If not, just type /pm and try to learn that way

Current features:

    Realistic catching mechanics - Catch PyroMon just like you do in Pokemon GO! You have 3 spins, if it gets past them all, you catch it! Be careful, it can break out. Use better PyroBalls for a higher chance to catch them!
    Full Customization - Everything in the plugin can be customized. Want to make your own PyroMon? You can. Want to translate everything into another language? Done. Want to have fully custom names for the PyroBalls? Also done. If you want something specific adding, let me know!
    CP / Statistic Scaling Features - As the CP of PyroMon go up, their stats increase. The stats can be fully configured in the PyroMon.yml file.
    Easy to use Crafting System - To make the PyroBalls, there is a very simple crafting system (/pm crafter). Use this to access the crafting inventory to make some PyroBalls!
    Player Statistics - Want to see how you compare with your fellow Minecrafters? You can! Use (/pm stats <player>) in game.
    Economy Aspects - Sell your PyroMon to the (/pm shop) and earn money! You can also collect them for future updates!
    Full in-game Codex - See PyroMon in game using the codex command. See all their stats, mob type, elemental types and much more.


Upcoming features:
Elemental Attacks / Custom Attacks
Summoning Captured PyroMon
Raids to allow for Mythical PyroMon (Community effort)
Gyms and PyroStops
Daily Quests
Skill Tree system
Berries that give higher catch chance etc
More Elemental Types
Evolutions
Upgrading system
Candies
Battling other players - wagers and tournaments
Egg hatching and related features


TL;DR:
- 1% of all the mobs that spawn will be PyroMon
- You can catch PyroMon by throwing a pyroball at them
- You can craft a pyroball via /pm crafter
- You can sell your pyromon, and in a future update, you will be able to spawn them / battle other player's pyromons


PS: /warp blazemagma if you need to kill blazes and magma things to get crafting resources

I'll try to do better.

Thank you for all you did and keep doing on SFT and thank you for putting a touch of Dpa in an otherwise boring landscape.

The server was updated to 1.14.3
Normally, there are a lot of broken plugins, however the core essential plugins are working.
We will now expedite work on adding World2 @TeraStorm @xJimJam  (FYI). No ETA at this time but we are working on it.

You can use /petshop to purchase fox eggs if you wish to tame foxes until then.

NOTE: Villager raiding was disabled due to a bug with them causing intense cpu usage on the server

I have updated Survival to the latest version of Spigot 1.13.2 and updated some plugins.
This is mostly for security, until we update to 1.14.x

As a reminder, 1.14.x is currently very laggy and bugged and not suitable to update to (unless we want a server that lags so much that commands take seconds to execute)

Updated mcMMO, PyroFishing, PyroMining, EliteMobs and a bunch of other plugins

FYI: Staff, fixed CoreProtect (gonna need some time to record data as database was reset)
31
Today, I've tried to update Survival to 1.14.2.
Well, the results of that were mildly encouraging, because it turns out our world works just fine, even in 1.14.2. Meaning when Mojang/Microshit actually release a playable version, we can upgrade to it (1.14.3, 1.14.100000, who knows).

But I quickly had to downgrade because:
- The performance was like well.. trying to run Crysis on a toaster
- Minecraft is a piece of shit game made by lousy people who don't care about servers and performance (it wasn't always like that, but it seems to be the case now)
- A ton of plugins were broken and we would've lost oh about 30% of our plugins, including critical ones.


TL;DR -> We updated to 1.14.2 then quickly downgraded to 1.13.2, now we are waiting for Minecraft to stop being a shitty game and actually work for a change.

EDIT: Turns out this was yet another flopped update from Mojang and NOT the update that was supposed to fix all the clusterfuck
32
So, after at least ~30h spent trying to upgrade to 1.14 and then to 1.14.1, something is very clear.
world1 is corrupted. Sadly, since 1.13.2 changed the world format, there are no tools that can allow us to save this world. Upon migrating to 1.14.1, this corruption (which manifests itself very rarely in 1.13.2) breaks world saving, meaning any of the worlds don't save either (meaning, for those less minecraft savy of you that every block you place will re-appear at a restart, and so on.).

It doesn't bring me pleasure to announce this, but we will have to do a world reset when we update to 1.14.1 (the exact timing of that was not yet determined).
We will however allow all players to transfer a building. For owners of huge buildings / autoshops / etc, we will do our best to transfer over, but no guarantees can be given (due to limitations with worldedit / minecraft / etc).

This seems completely unavoidable, believe me, we tried EVERYTHING. and I mean EVERYTHING.

I ask that you remain calm and continue playing. I am still working on finding a workaround, but for now, after weeks of research and trial it seems impossible.
33
General Announcements / Survival and 1.14.1
May 13, 2019, 12:14 pm
I am expecting 1.14.1 to come within 2 weeks.
From what I've found, they've fixed a lot of bugs, including the extremely annoying chunk loading lag and other lag causing issues.

In fact, you can see here all the fixes in 1.14.1:
https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Java_Edition_1.14.1

Now, when this comes, we should be set to update right away, provided nothing else happens like it did in 1.14 (basically I worked for 6 hours in one sitting trying to upgrade only to encounter a lot of really bad issues such as players crashing on join, extremely bad performance with chunk loading and all that.

I would like to ask, as a precaution this time, that you remove all your items from a) CrazyAuctions (/ml) b) Slimefun backpacks the moment you see 1.14.1 is out (I will not post any further warnings, in theory the transition should go smooth and no item loss should occur from the above mentioned containers, but you never know and WE WILL NOT OFFER ANY REFUNDS (since there is a warning)

Lastly, I hope that 1.14.1 is not the mess of an update that 1.14 was, and I hope everything will go smooth during the transition from 1.13.2 to 1.14.1 and the world conversion (during my upgrade attempts for 1.14 a lot of things went wrong, including the world being corrupted - but I had backups -.

I cannot fully exclude that a world reset will be needed, but it is looking like we shouldn't have any problems with that.

PS: For the past few days I've been on a mini break from SFT which will now extend (hopefully for only a few more days) due to my health. Sorry if I've neglected any tickets or haven't been around a lot lately, that's going to improve once I get back on my feet and 1.14.1 comes out.
34
We need your help: Please support us on Patreon. As little as $5 / mo can help us stay alive and get you great perks.

I have cancelled all my efforts to upgrade Survival to 1.14 due to extreme performance issues in 1.14 and crashes.
This means, Survival will NOT be updated to 1.14, and we are instead waiting for 1.14.1.

NOTE: It looks like a world reset will NOT be needed for when we do update to 1.14.1.
36

NOTE: This is NOT paid promotion, which is even more impressing.
Thank you 09sharkboy, I'm glad you enjoyed our server :D

We have three Plants vs Zombies servers set up. The servers are for one player each. You will need MC 1.13.2 to connect, and you will need to accept the custom resourcepack or it won't work right.

Sadly, Article 13 has passed.
https://www.gamerevolution.com/news/515535-article-13-passed-european-parliament-meme-ban
What this means - I, and specifically myself (as I own the domain superfuntime.org) am solely responsible for anything anyone uploads from now on.
And responsible as in legally. I can literally go to jail for some random user uploading a pirated movie/music video on our forums.

Now, obviously, this will affect small business owners and small communities like us the most, as in order to comply, you have to spend thousands of dollars developing a "Content filter" that will scan every uploaded file and check whether it is copyrighted or not.

What does this mean for SFT?
- I don't know how this affects us currently. The website was recently moved to Canada, so we are no longer hosted in the european union, but apparently, as long as it is accesible by EU users, it is still my responsibility.
- After this is oficially in effect (it was voted today), I will have to do one of the following things:
- Block access to anyone in the EU
OR
- Disable any file uploads and embeds (this means no more image embeds, no more forum signatures, no more nothing.

Until this is clarified and we decide which path to choose (probably the second), please be aware that uploading any sort of copyrighted content on SFT forums is now against the rules and punishable by 1st time: revoking your posting privileges and 2nd time: a forum ban.
This includes embeds of youtube videos of music/movies/etc.

NOTE: This applies for the forums/website/on the game servers. This does not apply to Discord.

@xQuicScopex✪ @blalp @AtomicPulse   - Congrats for whatever you did - 1.7.10 is picking up in players and we're starting to get some revenue from it (had one purchase today, I'm being told xquic is working on making more packages).

Hi everyone,
So, as some of you may probably know already, we are looking to branch to other game servers and not rely exclusively on Minecraft.
This was hard to do until now, since hosting a server required extensive knowledge and there were only a handful of SFT contributors able to help and with the knowledge needed, most of the times, they were already burried in other work / maintaining MC servers.
I saw that, and I decided to do something about it. I rented a dedicated server (for which I will be paying from my own pocket) and bought a software license for TCAdmin. The cost is roughly $50 / mo in general.

What is TCAdmin?
TCAdmin allows almost anyone to host a game server for SFT. Gone is the need to have extensive OS knowledge (which is even more difficult in our case, as we host game servers on Linux and not windows)
TCAdmin allows you to manage a game server from a web interface, so the only knowledge you need is about the game itself and configurations (often this information is readly available on google and simple to follow)



Demo instance
I have set up a demo instance with a few servers. This demo instance is not meant for you to play on those servers (they probably aren't even accesible), but to get used to the interface and see if this is something you could do. Give it a try, even if you do break something, this is just a demo instance and no permanent damage can be made

How does this affect you?
Are you interested in hosting a game server for SFT? If yes, play with the demo, try to understand how it works, and then get in touch with me about creating your own account and adding a server to your account.
NOTE: All the servers you will host in this tool, will be for SFT. In the future we may sell servers for personal use, but we are not there yet.
Do not hesitate to ask for an instance! I bought this server specifically for that, and I would in fact consider it a failure if we didn't have at least 4-5 people apply and request to host a game server for SFT

What games can we host using this tool?



NOTE: We will not be granting TS3/Ventrillo servers, please ignore those.

Why should I host a server for SFT?
You should host a server for SFT, for one of the following reasons:
- I care about SFT and I don't want it to die. therefor I am willing to help
- I want to start a server for events and I am an event organizer (eventhost / discord eventhost)

What are the do's and donts of using this system?
- Do not run a plain vanilla server. If all that you will do is start a CSGO server (just an example) and leave it as it is, this is not for you. You need to make the server unique in some way. Find an unique map rotation, tweak the server config to what you think other players will like it. If you're just going to start a server and run it as it is without modifying any config, you shouldn't bother. Nobody will play on it.
Now don't be scared by this. As long as you are willing to try and learn and google to learn what each config option means (usually games have manuals and tutorials for servers and server configs)
- Do not do anything that is illegal on our platform.
- Do ask for an account after you play with the demo and if you have an idea about a server you could be hosting. I'd rather have 100 people ask for accounts and have ONE good server resulting from that for SFT, rather than have 3 people apply and no good server.

Disclaimer
- This server and this software are my personal property and I own all the rights for them. This is a service that I own and I am allowing SFT to use for free, rather than a SFT service.
- I am willing to pay for 3 months for this. If after three months there isn't even one slightly popular server resulting from this, I will likely do one of two things: Stop paying for the bills and close the system or start selling game servers for money to be able to pay for the service and even make a profit.

How to apply for an account
- Either PM me on Discord Towelie#0420
- Or create a ticket in #support on our Discord server https://www.superfuntime.org/chat

General Announcements / Let's discuss PE
Mar 19, 2019, 05:48 pm
So, I've been talking with @xQuicScopex✪ and we are unsure what to do with PE.
On one hand, it's almost completely abandoned, on the other hand we would like to hear what you think.

In our opinion, we could do one of three things:
- Completely remove it from SFT
- Turn it into a private whitelisted server (almost no benefit though)
- Keep it as it is

Its main problem is the lack of players. Yes, it wasn't updated so fast in the past due to inactive owners, but now that is no longer a problem. Only the lack of players is one.
Please tell us what you think we should do with the PE server and why!

Good news! The mcMMO XP gain rate has been doubled for the weekend (as of now and until Monday)
Meaning you will gain mcMMO experience and level up twice as fast!

Bad news, we are discontinuing the SFT Eggs plugin (/hatcher) due to developer going inactive and the plugin being really buggy (since 1.13).
You have 48h to hatch any existing eggs, afterwards they will be worthless and non redeemable.

General Announcements / Forum upgrade
Mar 10, 2019, 03:03 pm
The forums were upgraded to the latest public version.
This means some (or most) of the modifications we had installed may not work and there may likely be other bugs (for example notifications are a bit wonky at the moment).

We are aware and working to fix these issues, obviously concentrating on the most serious first (the fact that notifications are wonky is not more important than the fact that people can't log in or register -which should be fixed now-)

We are now using SMF 2.1 RC1 on PHP 7.x (exact version not shown for security reasons)
