New Subway System Under Construction
February 05, 2014
The global subway system is currently in its "beta" phase. What this means is that we have dug out and laid track for most of the tunnels that will be in use as of January 2014. Anyone can currently ride and/or connect to the system.
The subway will allow players to travel at a 10:1 (overworld:subway) ratio, which will make commuting between towns significantly faster.
What do we still plan to do?
- A couple of tunnels still need some track.
- The intersections need stops so passengers can get out or change direction.
- Misc aesthetic changes.
How do you connect to the system?
- To connect to the subway system you will have to be a Mayor.
- Currently only one connection per town is allowed.
- You can have a vertical or horizontal portal.
- First you need to pick a spot for your portal to connect.
- You then need to give either BadTouch3 or RoscoeTheViking the coordinates of your portal and it will be set up for you.
Planned Server Down Time
November 05, 2013
The server will be down for 24 hours, starting at around 3:00pm today, while we move it to a new location.
UPDATE: the server is now back up. We apologize for the longer than anticipated outage. The infrastructure in our area needed some repair in order for us to get connected. The issue has been fixed and we plan to be online 24/7 again.
If you experience any network related issues, please contact us at email@example.com.
Server Updated to 1.6.4
September 21, 2013
Minecraft 1.6.4 addresses bugs, and also fixes an issue which prevented Minecraft world saves from retaining the randomly-generated structures found on players' worlds. To play on the server, update your minecraft version in the launcher.
Our first server update
September 10, 2013
Welcome to the new server bulletin. All updates and information pertaining to BeefCraft will now go here. You can still find articles on everything else pertaining to Minecraft in the news section.
Okay, so what's new then?
Lately we've added a new region to the overworld for public transit routes, gained a few new members, made some changes to the economy, built a new general store, assigned new roles to the admins, and we're planning to move to a new overworld when 1.7 is released.
The new public transit routes are marked on the map by the symbol and are colored black/white. All of these routes belong to the City of Wellington, but some also grant special permissions to the original builder(s). This means that if you build a transit route and donate it for public use you will retain creative input and not be taxed to protect it with permissions.
Welcome Bunnyinatree, Frankissoawesome, and Meritsusa!
We've changed the flow of taxes so that they are deposted into the Wellington bank account instead of evaporating, the prices of goods sold at the general store have changed, and the following towny prices have changed:
New General Store
The new general store is located on the northwest side of wellington island, near the library. Minerals are located on the second floor and everything else is on the first floor.
New Admin Roles
The admins now have two classes. The first class is the creative admin, which oversees in game activites. The second class is the technical admin, which takes care of server maintenance, backups, etc.
Mojang is planning on doubling the amount of biomes and completely reprogramming biome generation for 1.7. With this in mind we have decided to move our current towns over to a newly generated map once the update is released. Currently there is no release date for 1.7, so we don't anticipate that this will happen until later this year. More will be posted as update news is released.
