Please put survival classic back up for at least a short time so I can rebuild some of my old build in singleplayer.
SurvivalClassic is back for a while. It is no longer part of the Bungee network, so connect to it via mc.superfuntime.org:25570

General Announcements / The state of SFT
Dec 06, 2018, 01:23 PM
I like to write such a post at least once a year.
Let's discuss about the state of SFT, future plans and ambitions:

Survival:
- Survival continues to maintain steady (albeit at a low number of players). I have tasked @TheStarNomad✯ with finding cool stuff (donator perks / fun plugins / plugins that add core gameplay) and generally, I'd say that while we aren't peachy, we are floating around. When the summer comes, I have no doubt, we will see a big bump of players.
- I have plans to add a new world when 1.14 releases (I am delaying that for then, specifically so we can have the 1.14 new features / mobs / etc)
- Staff crysis averted. We had a staff crysis a few months ago, I am glad to say that has improved and is still improving.

Pixelmon:
- @Dpa1991  - please edit this section with pix relevant info


B-Team:
- There are plans to decomission B-Team, as everyone seems to have migrated to The 1.7.10 Pack anyway, and it's just a huge resource hog at the moment. Look out for a decomission announcement soon. We are pretty decided to do this, so unless a really strong reason comes against this, or unless someone offers to pay the bills to keep it up (no reason if you ask me, since it's empty all the time)


The 1.7.10 Pack:
- Since there are players and it's liked by people, it will stay. There are plans to develop the premium shop and add more to it. @xQuicScopex✪  can give more details

PE:
- After discussing with @BluetigerESW and @xQuicScopex✪ (mainly @xQuicScopex✪ ), we have decided that we should not decomission PE quite yet. While it's currently as good as dead, that's because of an update that crippled all our plugins, and we currently lack the resources to fix everything. If you are extremely good at PHP and want to help, contact @xQuicScopex✪ . Please note that the discord integration will be broken by the update, and we do not know if we will be able to fix it.


Creative:
- While it's not very popular, there are no plans to decomission it due to the very low resources it consumes.

SHC:
- Currently it is open to the public and whether it will remain or not, depends only on its popularity

Website:
- @fearthe1337 is working on moving the website from its dedicated server, to a vm. This move is expected to be completed within 3 months (due to some complications with the new forum version we are trying to update to requiring PHP7 and the website not being PHP7 ready). Once this is complete, it will mean a cost reduction of ~$50 / mo. This has already been shared with our Patrons as an exclusive story, if you want to help SFT and get awesome perks, and get the latest scoop on what's happening, think about becoming our Patron https://www.patreon.com/sftmedia

Discord:
- As you may have seen, Discord is managed by Loasty and Nubbun. They are doing a great job running the server, so you can expect to see discord events from now on. Perhaps even the creation of a Discord EventHost team who's sole responsibility will be to host events.

Overall:
- The overall focus is currently self preservation. We are doing everything we can to reduce costs and make SFT viable for long term (we are almost there). So you can rest assured, as long as there are players on our servers / visitors on our website / members on our discord, SFT will be here.
- However, we are still keeping track on new games being released, seing what we could move to, and Dpa is working on reviving Pix (he can comment more on that)


Happy Holidays!

Uh, just an idea for a possible fix (I don't know if this will work or not) yet could try this out.


if (customName.equals(StringUtils.formatItemName(itemStack.getData().toItemStack(1), false)))


Saw it on SF issue report and saw that it was a temp fix till update yet idk if it will work for us or not
We aren't the devs, so the dev of the plugin would have to do that.
4
Could you expand the borders of the end @Towelie? It's really hard to find cities.
I'll do that when I'm next in-game.
5
I'd like to add that we are waiting for an update from the dev, but it may take a while.

How much has it expanded by? and also it doesn't appear to show up on the live map.
at least not yet.
It needs to be rendered. Old border: 3500 new border: 4000. That's from 3500x3500 to 4000x4000 so even if it sounds like it's just 500, it's not xD. It's a difference of ~4 million blocks
Speaking of Dynmap, could we get a 3D render of World 1 and show protection regions too? @Towelie
Will render, but not 3d because that can take tens of gigs of disk space. and protections should already be there, just not visible by default, click on layers then enable protection

- Nether was reset
- End was reset
- Nether should have fortresses now (haven't tested but I generated it on another server with generate-structures: on. Normally it's a bad idea to keep generate-structures:on on a survival server because stuff keeps generating, long story)
- End may have end cities (no idea if it does haven't tested, no clue if it even works)
- Expanded World1

General Announcements / Happy Thanksgiving!
Nov 22, 2018, 05:10 PM
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans!
Sorry for posting this a bit later, but I am not an american and therefor do not celebrate Thanksgiving Day.
I am thankful for having @darknuju as my lead dev - he helps me quite a lot and running Survival wouldn't be possible without him.
I'm thankful to all our Patrons and donators premium users
I'm thankful for having @Dpa1991 as a friend and a co-owner at the same time, and while our relationship has its ups and downs like any friendship has, we've managed to still be friends after 7 years (while also being co-owners).
I'm thankful for having a wonderful staff team (For Survival and the other servers)
I'm thankful for having awesome contributors that run servers for SFT @xQuicScopex✪ @Mord3005 @ceddy24 @Loasty @Nubbun
I'm also thankful for having @fearthe1337  - without him, none of this would be possible, but I'd be more thankful if he wasn't dead xd
I'm thankful for having all of you awesome people and this wonderful community.

Starting November 23rd and until the end of November 24th, the Survival premium shop is running a black friday promotion.
Discounts from 40% to 55% will be automatically enabled. http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/

EVERYTHING MUST GO!

NOTE: I've gone ahead and combed through the premium shop, removing any broken perms, to make this black friday as smooth as possible.
I have also added a "Mega Disguises" package which basically contains all disguises (present and future) except player disguises and block disguises. This is currently $30 but will be discounted 55% when the black friday promotion starts, so keep an eye!

Good news! You can now show off your items to players on the server.

Usage:
/showitem - Shows the item you are holding to the people near you
Type %showitem% in chat (eg: Here's my Pickaxe %item%) and %item% will be replaced with the item


NOTE: This shows the enchants, the name, the lore, but not the actual item, so be sure to mention. Shows the item too, at the end

Good news! For those of you that remember - The furniture plugin is back. Please note that you need to purchase Furniture Perms from the premium shop to use the full features of this plugin.
However, you can obtain holiday decorations (xmas tree, candles, candy canes and so on) for FREE from the premium shop.

Claim your free Holiday Decorations today, from the Free premium shop category http://superfuntime.buycraft.net/category/168593

Enjoy snow and other surprises for this holiday season!

My name is MrDrBeeblebrox. I love your server, and I would be happy to contribute occasionally. I am a software engineer with a specialization in Java and Python. I have six years of experience in enterprise level software development, mostly in Web and Big Data engineering. I am very punctual; if I agree work at a specific time, you can have confidence that I will be there. I am 28 years old, and I understand the level of responsibility that comes with this commitment. I mostly play survival, and would like to contribute heavily to this experience. I have a large amount of System Engineering experience as well (mostly linux), so I would be very capable of assisting with server maintenance.
Um, you do know this is for a junior moderator in  a game right? .
If I was hiring, you'd be hired tho, call me impressed by your introduction xd

Just wanted to mention that nether was reset on Survival, and also, at @garow93 's request, I have disabled the fireworks on mcmmo perk activation/deactivation (they caused a ton of lag)

Its still un-certain if the world will become corrupted any time soon
Knowing b-team, don't cry if the world is corrupted in a week. We won't have any backups for it, I'm telling you this ahead of time.

For there to be more than like 7 people on at a time tbh
Believe me, I'd like that too. But that's not a valid reason not to play. You still have a lot to do and people to talk with, both in-game and on discord.

Hope you feel more better!
I do! Turns out you need antibiotics to survive xd
