Hello, fellow epic gamers, happy new year to you all!
So it seems that the only way for us to update the server to 1.13 was using a new map, which is why today we are releasing a new map as we launch the 1.13 version of the server. The 1.12 map IS still available for all to play on, just enter the portal at spawn (down the corridor to the left) to enter the 1.12 map, or type /server old at anytime. In the new 1.13 version of the server, the old 1.8 map will also be available for a short time, just enter down the corridor to the right of spawn.
Ranks as always will be transferred as well as the $ and claim blocks that come with each rank. Commands and permissions will remain the same on both servers however in the new map everyone will be starting fresh in terms of items, $ and McMMO levels. these will still be available in the 1.12 server, which to reiterate can access using /server old - the only exception is if you got an item from https://elitecraft.net/store later than August 10st, 2018, if you bought an item(s) later than this date and wish to have it moved from the 1.12 world to the 1.13 world just let a staff member know and we will do so.
If you wish to transfer a build from the 1.12 map to the 1.13 map, we can do so, but only provided you have a WorldEdit Ticket though chests and rare items such as beacons and diamond blocks will be removed from all copied builds so it is important that you remove these from the area you wish to have moved before requesting a transfer. Though this is not at all necessary, as all builds will be available on the 1.12 server, which can be accessed at anytime, and will remain around for the foreseeable future I hope you enjoy the new world with all the new features of 1.13!
One final note, on December 25th we had a minor freak amount of data loss, which meant that everyone who obtained their rank in the last 12 months was reset to the default [Guest] rank. Though fear not, we have a record of every rank and have promised to ensure all lost ranks will be returned. The vast majority of ranks have been returned now, but you may still be missing a rank if you have bought a rank in 2018, and have not played since December 25th. If your rank has been lost we will check to confirm you had it then promptly return it to you, just let us know when you see a staff member in-game, with a /modreq or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org stating the rank you've lost.
Happy new year everyone! I hope 2019 is a good year for you all.
Update: You can now join the EliteCraft server using Minecraft 1.13
On May 28th we are launching a new map which you will join when you join ec-mc.net The old map and the server as it is now will be available to join when the new map is out you will be able to type /survivalegacy or use the portal at the new spawn to get there, where you will have your builds, items, claim blocks and everything else, though on the new map you will only have your rank.
To bring new life to our server and fix issues we've dealt with over the past few months, we've decided to launch a new map with a reimagined spawn, the first time we've recreated our spawn in 4 years! For those of you who are worried that your builds will be lost, don't panic and countinue reading. For those newcomers who we welcome to join our community, and those of you who are excited to start exploring a fresh EliteCraft world, the new map will launch May 28th with a 10000x10000 radius from spawn, which will be expanded 8-12 after the release of Minecraft 1.13, or when there is enough demand for it.
Items you buy from the store from May 28th will be given on the new map, though you will have the choice to receive them on the old map instead. The only exception is for items bought 30 days before the reset (past April 28th) you can request a staff member transfer them to the new map from the old one.
There will be 5 exit portals which will be places where players can hang out and community events will be held occasionally, as well as an rtp portal, which can take you to any random unclaimed location on the map. To accomodate this new map, we've quadroubled our data storage capabilites so that our server and the new map will be stable long into the future, 2020 and beyond.
Survival - Legacy
In conjuction to the launch of the new map, we will be reopening our old map on a different server that can be accessed using /survivalegacy or /sl
Changes to premium ranks
We were recently contacted by Mojang, in order to make the server compliant with their terms, the following changes will come into affect June 4th 2018:
Currency will longer be for sale on our website, and will not be recieved with rank upgrades.
As these commands cannot be exclusive to certain ranks, all ranks on EliteCraft will have the ability to create multiple homes and have access to the following commands
/echest - Portable ender chest /craft - Portable crafting table /back - Return to your previous location /tptoggle - Enable/Disable players (excluding staff) from teleporting to you
The /clearinventory, /weather, /pweather and /god commands will be removed from all ranks.
The /setwarp command will be removed from all ranks excluding staff who can create warps for towns with more than 6 residents, exceptional builds and things that show off the creativity of the players of EliteCraft. You can request a warp be created with /modreq warp (warpname) and it will be reviewed within 48 hours.
In referendum, the majority the community voted that we abolish the swear filter. However, this choice only won by a small margin, therefore we've decided to keep the profanity filter with significant adjustments to make it less sensitive and hostile. Our aim with the new filter is to make it so that only those intentionally trying to cause trouble will notice it, encorporating measures that will prevent chat spam, and censoring profanities and offensive language.
- We've taken additional security measures to prevent against data loss, so that we can ensure date on the new server will be safe. - Added new items to /shop including concrete on page three of the 'colors' menu, and more farmable items including sugar cane and wheat that can now be sold at a low price
We Fixed Crates. We Fixed Gadgets. We FIXED Marriage AND the end is now here. - Working on a fix for player shops. - More to be announced soon.
From December 24th - December 31st, we're hosting a rare sale at http://www.elitecraft.net/store, use coupon code 'LITMAS' at checkout for 25% off all items!
For advent and the run-up to Christmas, throughout 1st - 25th December you can claim daily rewards on our server for logging in each day! Just go to /warp advent and find the door that matches the date for your gift :D
From the 21st - 27th of December, there will be a Christmas treasure hunt! Several chests with loot will be hidden around our spawn! The first to find all 12 chests, and inbox me here at elitecraft.net with screenshots of all 12 chests will recieve a free epic loot crate key!
(If you choose to work together as a group, I will give either 4 loot crate keys, 3 lucky crate keys or 2 super lucky crate keys depending on the size of the group)
