- MineA launches today, come join us!
BloodyIron on Sat, June 2nd, 2012 @ 3:47 pm.
Recently LANified! migrated it's legacy minecraft server to a more appropriate implementation, with a white list. Today, we again bring you something new in the minecraft world.
Today LANified! is proud to launch it's new server, minea at 2pm MST. To join us just connect to minea.lanified.com at 2pm
What's different about this server?
- pvp is on
- new world (we may wipe every month or 2 months)
- additional features
- it's new!
We have added the following features:
A faction system
The faction system enables groups of players to lay claim to territory, form alliances, wage wars, and generally protect and defend their own interests. Defenders have the advantage, as they take less damage in their territory. Take note that you can't simply just land-grab all the things. As members join a faction, the max "power" it has increases. A faction spends power to claim territory or perform other faction related functions. A player gains a small ammount of power every minute they are on the server, and that contributes to your faction. There are many more elements to the faction system, but these are the basics.
An economic system
The economic system we have implemented allows players to setup spaces which automate the exchange of goods for a dollar currency. Additionally the price of goods can fluctuate depending on supply and demand. You can buy and sell anything in the game, including enchants.
This server will remain public, and no white list will be implemented. LANified! will play a passive role, and we expect most differences to be resolved between the players. However, we are still here to help you. If you feel that you need our help, be it due to aggressively problematic players, or through server bugs causing problems, we will hear you out but that is no guarantee you will receive what you ask for. We will be closely monitoring the development of this server and adjusting things as we see fit.
So come join us, starting today at 2pm MST at minea.lanified.com
Also, many of us will be on mumble, so feel free to join us there too at voice.lanified.com (default port)
A new world lays ahead of us, and even we don't know what it looks like. Come influence that world, and make it your own, or come and wage war, it's up to you.
- Minecraft, our legacy
BloodyIron on Thu, May 31st, 2012 @ 5:19 am.
Fellow gamers, lend me your ears!
Today we bring you further improvements to our legacy Minecraft server. We also are bringing you some delicious new offerings too!
In regards to our legacy server, we bring you the following:
1) We have migrated the legacy server to mineb.lanified.com (live right now!).
2) Our legacy server (mineb) now utilizes a whitelist. We've naturally already added our trusted members to this list, however if you are not on this list please let us know right away. We are utilizing a whitelist to ensure that those who play on our legacy server are not out to cause problems for others. If you want to apply for the whitelist post in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=21&t=5476
3) We have adjusted our backup schema to be more in-line with the needs of the server (for mineb). We now perform the following backups:
- Once a week (4 times a month)
- Every day of the week
- Every 6 hours
4) Our map has to regenerate (http://map.lanified.com) and this may take a day or two. Check back soon!
But wait, there's more! We're bringing you a NEW Minecraft server! So what does this mean?
1) A completely fresh world for everyone to explore, enjoy, and get dirty in.
2) New features to the server that we will announce later.
3) Did I mention a new world?
This new server will be at minea.lanified.com and to celebrate it's launch we're doing something really great! We're going to create the world and launch it to the public this Saturday June 2nd 2012 at 2pm MST (GMT-7)! This way we can all jump on the server together and get really dirty all at once. Between now and then we will be announcing the features this new server will offer, so check back between now and then, but make sure to join us at launch!
- 2pm MST Saturday
- Bring snacks and drinks for the admins (or yourself, whatever)
- Tournament Schedule and such
BloodyIron on Fri, May 25th, 2012 @ 6:13 am.
Good news everyone!
Our event is less than one month away! We recently made adjustments to our tournament schedule, and finalized the Super Smash Brothers; Melee format too! The schedule is setup so the tournaments do not overlap at all, so everyone can enter everything.
We also want to remind you that the Portal 2 Map Making Contest is going on still. Players are working hard to enter their creative maps into our contest to win a delicious Trendnet TEW-680MB! Just make sure you attend our BYOC and submit your map by Noon on Saturday and then you'll be set. We will also be doing something interesting with the top 3 maps that we select.
As in our previous events, we've had on-site concession cooked and prepared properly. We will be bringing that back for our coming event, and it's still delicious and affordable!
If you're interested in coming, by yourself, with friends, or even so far as to bring your own TF2 team, we recommend you prepay to reserve and guarantee your own seat! To sign-up and prepay head to: http://www.lanified.com/events/go/8/2 Prepay is instant, and really easy.
We're really excited about our coming event, we hope to see you there!
- Five things to know
BloodyIron on Fri, May 11th, 2012 @ 10:58 pm.
Our coming event is just one month away, but we're not slouching! We're busting our backs to bring you a spectacular event. Here are some things that are worth noting for our coming event.
S2 Games has been one of our biggest contributors and longest term sponsor. We have greatly appreciated their support the last two years. However all things must come to an end, and as such our sponsorship with S2 Games is ending. Thanks S2 Games for your help!
We have re-evaluated our coming event and are adjusting our ticket price to make the event more accessible to the public. To be specific, we are reducing prepay and at the door pricing. All of the people who have prepaid for this event will be given immediate partial refunds. If you have prepaid and you are having issues please contact BloodyIron immediately. We also have adjusted the ticket price for the console tournaments as we want them to be more accessible too.
Tournament adjustments. We are still finalizing certain elements of our tournaments. In summary they are:
- Removing of Heroes of Newerth from our tournament line-up
- Adjusting of the PC and Console tournament schedules to make them not over lap
- Revisiting the Super Smash Brothers Melee ruleset
- Adjusting prizing considering the change in ticket price
