General Discussion / garywb

Hi guys.

It really pains me to inform you all that recently, a dear member of the community, garywb, passed away due to natural causes. Some of you already knew that he was a senior citizen, something which made his commitment to the community even more impressive.

Gary played on survival almost every day from 2013-2018. And not just a few minutes a day, a few hours. He racked up 11,000 hours in survival uptime, which makes him the player with the most uptime in the history of SFT (at least, since /pstats was introduced). He never forgot to vote, and did so nearly every day for 5 straight years. The fact that a senior citizen can do that but we can't says a lot about our own commitments and the potential for us to do better in them.

Gary operated gbstore, one of the most popular and longest running autoshops on the server. Gbstore was iconic; it was always built of dark oak planks and consisted of numerous aisles running horizontally. He employed players to help him collect resources, some of whom grew close to him. His employees were treated well: each was paid at least 250k/month and he would sometimes use his own money to purchase them fly perms. He enjoyed skyping with them whenever he could (though the calls would be frequently interrupted by his thirst for coffee). His store was always surrounded by a town, which was built by his employees. In total, there were 6 official incarnations of gbstore and 5 incarnations of the gbtown.

Gary spent most of his time online mining for gems to sell in his store. But after pyrofishing was introduced, he developed a knack for that. T4 built him a fishing shack, which he used to the fullest extent possible. Every night, he would be out fishing in the lake next to his house. Gary slowly climbed /money top thanks to the sales at his store. But it would be thanks to fishing and the help of some other SFT players which would allow him to eventually dethrone ctyfrmr from the #1 spot.

Gary left the server in 2019 after the reset, but he gave meaning to the rank "legend" and will be remembered as one for as long as SFT is still a thing. To remember him and his remarkable dedication to the server, I'm changing my chat badge to the yellow coffee cup- his badge. I encourage every other survival player with badge perms to do the same.

He chose to leave a lot of details about his life to himself and only those who knew him best, so out of respect for him and his family, I'm not sharing any information about his family and links to his obituary. Please send them your prayers and wishes, though, as they come to terms with his passing.

Being a lucky ducky doesn't just require luck; it also requires skill. Last year, I held a poker tournament that a few lucky duckies seemed to enjoy, so I'm holding one again this year. :laugh:

The tournament will be held on Saturday, March 21 at Noon EST (5PM GMT), inside the poker room at everyone's favorite casino: /warp Ducky's Palace (on Survival: play.superfuntime.org).

To participate, you will need 50k EmpBucks for a box of chips. Unlike the last tournament, you will not be able to buy back into the game if/when you lose all your chips. In addition to winning all the chips (300k, max), the winner will also win 1mil EmpBucks (courtesy of Towelie) and a custom trophy and will get their own bust in the hall of fame. All participants, however, will recieve a small prize for their participation.

I will not bother explaining the rules of the game, since I expect most participants to have already played with me before; however, written rule guides will be available. Participants will also be shown the basic mechanics (how cards are dealt and disposed of, how to place chips on the table, and so on).

If you are certain you will participate, you MUST RSVP. You can do this by replying to this thread or by DM-ing me on discord (#omelet7541). This is because I only have 6 seats available and I want to make sure everyone who wants to play can play.

Details:
Have you wanted to start an autoshop but didn't want to go through the hassle of building and advertising it? If so, I have a proposal for you. Ducky's Palace- SFT's most popular casino, will soon be opening a mall, and I need shopowners to operate the shops.

Stop by /warp duckysmall and check out the shops. If you're interested in buying one, message me on discord at omelet#7541 or in-game. There are only 10 available, so buy one before someone else does!

Perks:
- Attraction status (you won't ever have to worry about resets)
- Free advertising (omelott will periodically advertise the casino and mall when he is online)
- Free /autoshop listing (omelott will buy a spot on /autoshop for the mall once enough autoshop chests are set up)
- Mobs don't spawn
- Free storage (you'll have to ask omelott for access, though)

Rules:
- You must have autoshop perms
- You may only buy one shop
- At least half of your autoshop chests must be up and running within a month of purchasing the shop
- You may replace the original decorations but the new ones must look nice and fit the general theme
- I (omelott) reserve the power to evict shopowners who fail to comply with the rules

Price:
240-500k. Depends on the shop size. Prices are listed outside each shop.





Closing date:
4 months or until all shops are sold.

Are you actively working on any major builds (towns, big autoshops, attractions)? I've been noticing that survival has been lacking new builds, which kinda stinks because they're what keep people interested in playing. Fill out the form below in a reply and I'll check out your build. If I think it's worthy of investment, I'll pay you 2 million emp and send you a screenshot for proof over discord. My only requirement is that you promise to finish what you've started and you place a sign to advertise my casino (/warp Ducky'sPalace) at or near the spawn warp where people can see it. ;D

Hey guys! On Tuesday, July 23, at Noon - 3PM EST (5PM - 8PM GMT), @Beanz_ and I are going to be holding a poker tournament. The game will be Texas Hold'em and will be held inside the glamorous Ducky's Palace. You'll need at least 30k to play, but up to an additional 100k may be needed if you opt for a 1-time buy in when/if you go bust. The rules will not be explained, but a quick visual demonstration will be given before the game (to show how cards are dealt and disposed of, how to place chips on the table, and so on). In addition to winning all the cash, the winner will also be given a custom trophy and a bust in the casino 'Hall of Fame.' Further information will be provided closer to the tournament date.

Anyways, I hope to see many of you there!

I currently occupy the #2 spot on /money top, and was recently dethroned from the #1 spot by @sky_comet. Naturally, I get a lot of questions about how I make my money. So I thought I'd share my favorite techniques with you all. All of these techniques follow server rules and are 100% legal. Just be aware that they are time consuming and not for the easily bored.

Mining

 :diamond: You'll need :diamond:

-1 Silk Touch Pickaxe
-1 Fortune 3 Pickaxe
-1 Shovel
-Glowstone Helmet (so you can see in the dark)
-Food
-1 Water Bucket
-Shulker Boxes

 :diamond: Suggestions :diamond:

-Mine at Y level 11 or 12. You can check what Y level you're mining at by clicking the F3 button. If you mine at a level lower than 11, you risk an encounter with lava.
-Mine on the border of chunks (which you can check by typing F3+G). This is because only 1 vein of diamond ore spawns per chunk. Mining on the border of 2 chunks will maximize your odds of finding a vein of diamonds.
-Use the MCMMO super breaker ability when it's available to you. It refreshes every 10 minutes and makes your mining trip less timely.
-Turn on subtitles. You can do this by going to options, music & sounds, then turn subtitles to 'on.' Subtitles will allow you to know if there's lava or a cave nearby.
-Explore every cave you come across. Caves can expose a lot of ores and there are still many left undiscovered.
-Mine every ore you across (even coal).
-Mine the ores you come across with your silk touch pickaxe first. This is because if your MCMMO mining level is high enough, there's a chance there's a chance more than 1 ore will drop from mining 1 ore. Then replace your ore and mine with your fortune pickaxe.
-Smelt your iron/gold ore in groups of 32. This is because if your MCMMO repair level is high enough, there's a chance more than 1 ingot will be smelted from a 1 ore.
-Craft your gems into blocks for a more efficient use of space in your inventory.
-Always sell your gems to the EMP. Autoshop sell prices are crap and almost always lower than the EMP's. Even if you can sell your gems to an autoshop for the same price as the EMP, don't bother because there's a 10% tax on autoshop transactions (meaning when you sell a diamond to Mallusa for 1600 emp, you're actually only getting 1440 emp).

Nether Mining

:fire: You'll need :fire:

-1 Fortune Pickaxe (with mending to make it indestructable)
-Good Armor (with fire resistance and mending)
-Slime Boots
-Elytra (with mending)
-Rockets
-Food (Lots, because you'll run out quickly)
-Shulker Boxes

 :fire: Suggestions :fire:

-Use your elytra and rockets to navigate the nether. It's easier than building bridges and pillars with throwaway blocks. Just be careful not to crash into cliffs.
-Mine all the quartz ore you come across.
-Mine the quartz ore you come across with a silk touch pickaxe first. This is because if your MCMMO mining level is high enough, there's a chance there's a chance more than 1 ore will drop from 1. Then replace your quartz ore and mine it with your fortune pickaxe.
-Craft your quartz into blocks for a more efficient use of space in your inventory.
-Always sell your quartz blocks to the autoshops, not the EMP. Mallusa is the best autoshop to sell your quartz blocks to, but the chests there fill up really fast.
-Use the XP you gained to enchant books/tools/armor, which you can sell on /ml. One of the amazing things about quartz mining is that you gain a lot of XP, which will automatically repair any mending tools/armor you have.
-I've been told by some people that glow stone is another nether material worth mining. I usually don't bother with it because it's harder and more dangerous to reach than quartz. Not to mention, it takes more time to mine.

Gold Mining

:gold: You'll need :gold:

-1 Pickaxe (Enchantments don't matter)
-1 Shovel
-Food
-Water Bucket
-Shulker Boxes

:gold: Suggestions :gold:

-Find a mesa biome. Gold can be found at any Y level in a mesa biome, as long as it's surrounded by stone.
-Dig straight down (anywhere). I know it's risky, but if you can type /w1 fast enough, you'll be just fine.
-Turn on subtitles. Having subtitles on will allow you to detect lava before you mine into it and therefore limit your encounters with it.
-Smelt your gold ore in groups of 32. This is because if your MCMMO repair level is high enough, there's a chance more than 1 ingot will be smelted from 1 ore.
-Always sell your gold ingots to the EMP.

Fishing

:fish: You'll need :fish:

-A good fishing rod (having mending on it will make it indestructable)
-A sword
-Food
-A dock/boat
-Shulker Boxes

:fish: Suggestions :fish:

-Fish in an open/deep ocean biome only
-If you're short on time, sell your fish through /fish shop.
-If you're in it for the long run, gut your fish for entropy and use the entropy to obtain augments for your fishing rod (which in turn will allow you to catch more fish).
-Sell the items you fish up (saddles/nametags mostly) to the EMP
-Use the XP you gain to enchant books/tools/armor, which you can sell on /ah
-The fishing deliveries (/fish deliveries) are worth the prize money (but you'll have to move biomes)
-The fishing contests are worth the prize money (not to mention, they're a lot of fun if others are participating).

I have a few more techniques, but since I'm pretty lazy, ima stop here and add a few more later.

The Exhibition / Ducky's Palace Casino
Feb 17, 2019, 01:00 am
Are you a lucky ducky?

If you are, then a trip to /warp ducky'spalace won't be a waste of your time. A trip to our casino is an experience unlike any other. Try your luck at the slot machines. We have two types (chip slots and gem slots), each with six different machines you can play. The chip slot machines use a special autoshop mechanism designed by me that allows you to use physical chips (books) instead of gems to play, which you can purchase and sell directly. For those seeking a more familiar slot machine experience, we have gem slot machines as well.

 Are the slot machines too boring for you? Join your friends at one of several table games, which can be played with the aforementioned chips. We currently have nine to choose from: Blackjack, Roulette, Poker (Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Seven-Card Stud, and Pai Gow), Baccarat, Keno and Russian Roulette. Blackjack is the most popular, but feel free to ask me to host any of the ones listed above and I'll be delighted to do so.

Not a gambler? That's fine. Our enormous 18,000+  block facility makes us one of the largest buildings on SFT, so there's a guarantee you'll find something interested. Some of the activites we have include:

- Gift shop: Filled with custom casino-themed souvenirs
- Club & bar: Get turnt to the music of a live DJ and dancers, or try our famous handcrafted drinks
- Theater: Watch a real, live performance put on by volunteer actors. Free of cost!
- Shopping mall: Splurge a bit at the player owned shops in Ducky's Palace. Make sure to visit the GUCCI store.
- Chapel: Marry your significant other!
- Hall of fame: Admire the big winners of Ducky's Palace's past

Nommy Island Treasure Hunt


Hey all! This weekend, I will be hosting a treasure hunt (under the supervision of @GoldenDruid76). The event will take place in my town, Nommy Island (/warp NommyIsland). I will start the event by giving everybody a clue, which will lead to a location with another clue. The event will end when one player reaches the end location.

The first person to reach the end will win 1 million emp, but everybody who participates will receive a custom souvenir. The entire event will be funded by my sugar daddy friend, @garywb.

The event will take place on Sunday, June 3 at 2 PM Eastern Time. For those interested, here is a countdown.



I hope to see you all there!

I've been noticing a trend of people online late at night recently. I'm curious to know, what time do you go to sleep? ;)

I know, I know, go ahead and tell me off for using the 12 hour clock.
