Christmas Holidays

As it's about Christmas time, I really haven't thought of what to do for this holiday month. If I could, I'd set some chests around the tree for players to get free random items. DDChestRegen does it upon command once, not per player. So, I have been thinking of reducing prices of the Donation Tiers, except tier 5.
Tier 1: $2, Tier 2: $6, Tier 3: $10, Tier 4: $20. Thoughts?

I've gotten the idea of setting up minigame areas with the use of DDChestRegen, if I can set a timed regeneration per chest. Just a recent thought, no details yet.

I have set up MCDen in a new layout, though still under construction. This is to help a lot of FPS Lagg issues. FPS Lag is still noticeable around the saucer, when we thought it was just the signs. The rearrangment to spread out all the stores helps the FPS in the area, but under the saucer, I still get around 80+FPS while around out of town I get as high as 300+FPS. I'm still trying to figure this out. Might be the black market causing the issues. We already plan to relocate the Black Market elsewhere. We are planning to place the Green House Stores in a new location. it will be in the area of /warp oakwoodfarm (warp name to change later). This should help keep some of the FPS lagg from the glass and water out of town as well.

SpoutPlugin and SpoutCraft seem to be running fairly well on the server now. If you use spoutcraft and would like to join with it, great! Open your spoutclient, don't log in just yet, click the grey gear and select 1.4.5 and Dev Builds. Save, login and you should be able to join the server. Note: Occasionally a new Dev Build Update breaks or causes funny issues. Just change from Dev to Custom, click  Deveoper and select a Build one less than the newest. Doesn't work? Go to the next oldest. After a few builds and still can't start or use SpoutCraft properly, check Spout.org's forums and see if something is up, or even ask if you can't find an answer.

I do want to thank you all who has donated to the server in the last couple weeks. The server is set to be running for the next year when pay time rolls around. By this time, we should either have enough money earned to pay another year, or a possible slot increase to 20. If you don't want to donate, tell others about the server, or even vote for us from time to time on the server lists in the VOTE link in the navigation bar above. I do plan to set up some kind, don't know how, a referral system. If you brought in a friend, and they say you brought them, you would receive a some kind of reward. This is all that I've thought about, not sure how or what kind of rewards yet.

Last, if anyone has wondered, the reason I seemed to have stopped making posts here, is due to the simple fact that I don't think many people bother to read or visit the server's site. It's either I post the info ingame some how, or talk about it on the facebook group. If you read the posts and visit fairly often, please make yourself known. Make a comment to let me know.

  1. Well now I gotta comment :P. I think the presents under the tree idea is Golden. IF you can get it to work right. but Tier 1 donation of $2 someone would be nuts not to donate 2 bucks to be a donator.

    I mean total (split between two people) I'm at $55 lol. (And I expect to donate even a tad more over time. but I'll make sure to donate through Tobitanna so I don't screw up my perms again haha.)

    As for the random Items I think it would be awesome to dish out a bunch of epic armor like the Deathsword but armor wise lol.
