xP// Build [24/7] [Towny] [Multiverse] Check out our new forum at: http://www.xpbuild.com [hr] Check out our dynmap at 22.214.171.124:8123 Connect with : "mc.xpbuild.com" [hr] Welcome to xP// Build! [hr] xP// is a gaming community that has been on-and-off for a few years already. Led by two people, Xenoyia and SUXpanD, xP//'s a community that focuses on just having fun rather than sheer player counts and e-mega floppy dangler value. We originally started out with a Garry's Mod server in early 2010 and soon progressed on to Minecraft. After several iterations of economy-enhanced but relatively simple survival servers, we decided to take the Minecraft branch of xP// to the next level. We started with this by merging another community (USW) with xP//, and topped it off with a great selection of plugins, a proper server, and a nicely streamlined admin ethos. We had many worlds at this time, along with a pretty large playerbase. Aaaaaaaand then we lost it (along with our site) to our host crapping out on us, leaving us pretty much dead in the water. Yep, Fecal Leaking happens. With all that said, after several months of downtime we decided to pick up the pieces and start right over again. We contacted all the old players we could find, and quickly got a small but dedicated team of players together who helped get things set up. In just over a week's time, we were back up and running! That's where this story starts... We'd love to grow back to our old size, but ofcourse more importantly make things just as fun as they used to be. For that to happen we'll need more awesome people, though! Read on to find out what we think is so special about our servers, and maybe even join our MC one yourself to give it a try. [hr] What is this server? [hr] xP// Build is a bukkit-enabled game server for the bestselling PC indie game Minecraft. The server is centered around the Towny plugin, with many other features such as chest shops, hidden puzzles, wars (pending testing!), multiple worlds and an expansive and always up-to-date economy. The Towny plugin, or 'Towny Advanced' as it's named on Bukkitdev, is a game-changing plugin that divides the world up into 'plots' of a pre-configured adjustable size (11x11 on our server). These plots can be bought through virtual money to form or add to towns, create outposts or even simply protect a location from changes. The big deal with Towny is that it is very much self-managed, allowing players to easily manipulate the permissions of their owned pieces of land without ever needing an admin's help. Mayors and assistants of towns set up through Towny can invite people to the town, rank them up and even change settings on individual plots, such as lava and water usage, PvP and mob spawning. Furthermore, players can set up things like shops and traps and easily start community projects through an array of simple commands. It's the power of Towny which makes the server that much enjoyable for those who want a bit of safety for their creations, or who just like to chat and do stuff with a bunch of other like-minded people. Now, the above is ofcourse not the only thing to do on our server. There's also this little thing called the Wilderness, which includes all of the land that's not part of a town. In the wild, anything goes; killing players, setting up traps, looting and many other things are allowed, and there's no guaranteed safety anywhere. Don't want to bother with town taxes and other costs or staying within plot boundaries? Create your house smack in the middle of the wild, rig up the areas around you, and kill anybody who still dares to get close! If somebody does get through however, expect to have everything of value stolen. It's all fair game in the wild, and that goes both ways! While we're on the subject, a small word of caution: there's nothing stopping people from creating an actual town that has PvP enabled everywhere or that's rigged to high hell either... Speaking of hell, we may just have a little surprise in store for our users once we get the next Minecraft version up and running. That'll be a secret for now, though! If you do not wish to play survival at all, we also have a self-managed Creative world that you can jump into. This world is also divided into plots, but the plots here are much larger, weighing in at a fairly hefty 75x75 blocks. Everything in this world is free, to the point where you can even spawn in your own items. You can claim up to two of these plots yourself and then configure them to your liking with settings ranging from the plot biome type to which players can build on it. This way, you can get your friends and anybody else involved in your projects as well. This world is also fully protected, to the point where even liquids like water and lava cannot flow out of their original plots. We may also be able to move certain Creative projects over to a Survival world, though at a significant cost -- ask an admin. Our rules of conduct: [hr] While we're not entirely against total anarchy, there's still a few rules applied to keep things running smoothly. 1) No flaming or provocation. This includes racism, sexism and any other form of harassment. You can call somebody a **** if they're being one though - we're quite lenient on that. 2) No griefing or threatening to. You're allowed to break stuff down and even steal in the wilderness, but if we catch you breaking things only for the sake of breaking them you're gone. 3) No cheating or using exploits. Our anticheat's always watching, and we have means of seeing what our players do as well if the need arises. Exploits should be reported to an admin. 4) No luring or scamming. Don't rename an Iron Sword to a "Wither Sword" and sell it to some poor unsuspecting manchild for a million coins, please. Also, no TP kills or luring people to their deaths. 5) Have some common sense. Our rules won't cover every possible scenario of evildoery, and that's only to be expected. Be fair to others, and others will be fair to you. IP: 126.96.36.199:25565 or "mc.xpbuild.com" Leave Feedbacks!
