Unfortunately, donations since February have been quite low, as you'll see if you view the attached screenshot. With the expenses of renewing the forum license ($40/year), purchasing a new look for the site (required for forum update, $25), the monthly subscription for Buycraft (£4.99/month), and paying the server bill ($95 CAD/month), the server is beginning to cost me money to keep running, which I cannot afford to for very long. We are making efforts to reconfigure the server to run cheaper (via less powerful hardware, as what we have is over-powered for our current needs), gain more regular players, and implement new donation enticements. Our main focus right now is updating our custom not-UUID-compatible plugins so we can complete the update to 1.8. We won't get to where we want to be overnight, but I seriously want to use 2015 as the year to bring new life to DarkCraft. In the meantime, any donations that can be offered are extremely appreciated. Thank you very much to...
We completed a huge update today, jumping from Xenforo version 1.1.3 to 1.4.5. Many new useful administrative features are available that will hopefully help us eliminate (entirely) spammers from the forum.
We rebuilt the site based on a new style, but we'll be keeping the old style available through the style selector at the bottom-left of the corner. Beware that the "Darkcraft Classic" style was meant for Xenforo 1.1 and you'll encounter many visual glitches when using it. Namely an invisible post editor.
Note: If you don't see the new style when logged in, you have to manually change over to the new style "DarkCraft v2" by using the style selector at the bottom left of the page.
There are many other minor changes around the site. The post editor has been redone and we have access to a couple new BBCodes, which can be seen here. We'll be looking into new features to add into the site...
good news everyone. A mod has been invented that fixes the problem of technic not being compatible with Java 1.8. Some of you who have tried to get into our Technic pack may have run into this problem in the past. But now it should be completely that. In the past.
Mind you this does not upgrade the minecraft version. Darkcraft Unleashed is still using Minecraft 1.6.4 as a base for the game, with lots of great mods added to it to expand on the content far beyond the limits of Vanilla. All this new mod does is fix a legacy glitch between the Technic system and Java 1.8.
As you know the name change thing kinda blindsided us as well as most plugin developers out there. For the most part we have gotten most of the plugins up to code on this except for a few. One of the most critical being deadbolt which locks up our stuff.
As of this evening this should no longer be a problem. Until we find some other plugin in the future to replace deadbolt I've written a small plugin that runs along side it. If you have changed your name and want all your signs back all you need to do now is SHIFT(SNEAK)+RIGHT CLICK the sign that belongs to your previous name. The plugin will look up your UUID and find all the names you used to be. It will then check that to the name of the Owner on the sign and if it finds that owner name in your name history, it will automatically switch it to your name.
