    Sellt's Diary 07/04/2018

    Sellt
    By Sellt,
    Hello A'therys! It has been some time since we've updated you on what has been going on in the development of A'therys. Fear not, that doesn't mean that we've slowed down - it means the opposite. A number of things have been done these past few weeks from coding to building. Our custom quest plugin is being developed and will offer us some fun opportunities to let you interact with the world and learn about the new nations. Speaking of new nations, work on the capitals continues with Seten-Nan, capital of the harsh and desolate Dalkun-Tir.   Our Lore Team is also still working on some of the finer details of the nations, and as such if you are interested in forming parts of the nation of your choice, maybe hit the lore team up in discord and start a friendly talk! Maybe your ideas will end up in the game! Additionally I thought maybe I should write a bit about what I personally was working on and what will give you a bit more insight into the nations, the map and what kind of terrain you may expect to find. You probably already know that the Gennaian Isles are, surprise, Islands. Imagine Mediterranean islands and you got a pretty good picture of them. Further to the east one will find Daidama, with an icy north, stony highlands and further down jungles and a region inspired by the Tianzi Mountains of China. South of Daidama we get to a dryer region, Dalkun-Tir. A nation filled with Savanna, Mesa land (inspired by Monument Valley), Canyon and a smaller Desert (far smaller than Ar-Selukk’s Desert). Both Nations, Daidama and Dalkun-Tir share the same river (which also connects the capitals) and which will be around 6.5km long. So look forward to some epic boat races! Even further down we find Atvoria, a land shaped by magical stories. The epitome of the default fantasy land we all know from somewhere. Included are a swamp like region, mountains, large grassy plains, sharp rock formations and even a mushroom forest with flying rocks. A bit apart from these nations to the south west we get Kilnholdt. While parts of it are inspired by Scotland we also get a huge terraced Mountain region on the main island that, in my opinion at least, looks stunning. Coming from the lowlands to the road up to the capital will be a wonderful sight. Additionally the cave system has been slightly changed from evo to get a more epic feeling, deeper caves, some bigger ones that would be big enough to hold w whole town and even underground rivers. If you follow me on twitter you may see one or the other region in WIP pictures I sometimes post ;) https://twitter.com/Selltos   Today we also have a special request for you. A'therys Horizons has always been a passion project for us, and our team is small but dedicated. The size of our team means that while we are working away regularly, we rely on time voluntarily donated by our contributors. During this time, we have certain upkeep costs that we will always pay to keep the servers running and our website up. We've identified a few ways where additional funds could help alleviate those costs and allow us to divert resources to getting Horizons completed faster. Horizons will be completed, with or without donations, but contributing to our upkeep will help speed things up. If you are interested in helping us out, we have started up a Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/atherys/overview    And if you think you can build and want to help us in that regard please follow this link and join our great build team! https://atherys.typeform.com/to/kVygUS     We hope to see you around! Keep an eye on the website and discord for future updates!   "Kilden glory! -- No matter the cost!" - Kilden War Cry

    The Protection Update - May 19th

    Dannie
    By Dannie,
    A'therys Survival Hi all. Hope you are all well and are having a good weekend. It's been about 2 weeks since survival.atherys.com was released and now I bring you a changelog of more or less everything that's been implemented, changed and fixed. If you've read the release thread you will be aware that we have ranks on the server that open up more commands for players to use.  Well, now we're going to open up a form for players to fill out to obtain their well-earned rank. Here it is: https://goo.gl/forms/uWB0z0AyMyqb8Ibk1 Please note, it is likely your request will take a couple days (2-3) to be read and actioned. You will be contacted via Discord if your rank is deserved.  The Changelog Added deathcount to tablist Added 15 second combat tag. Don't logout during this, you will die. There is no way of checking your status currently, but we will look into adding this in for the future. The end was fixed, and dragon was spawned and killed. You will need to respawn it. https://minecraft.gamepedia.com/Ender_Dragon#Respawning  Added a more helpful /help page. A forever WIP. Made vanilla trees easier to cut down (Conquest Reforged compatibility TBC). Have fun making log farms. Added an announcer to clog your chat up. Villagers now replant. TNT was disabled to prevent anonymouse griefing. Conquest Reforged doors, trapdoors, (anything and hopefully everything you can open and close) now added to Latch, lock with /latch private

    All of these


      Added a 10k block wide worldborder that we will increase by 500 blocks each weekend (excluding this weekend) Next increase: May 26th. Gave The Respected rank permission to GriefPrevent Basic Claims. https://github.com/MinecraftPortCentral/GriefPrevention/wiki/Commands (A help thread on this will be made soon. I'm open to any players making one if they want!)   Grief Prevention Claims What can I claim? Upon earning the Respected rank you will be able to claim 100 blocks, increasing by 100 per hour to a maximum of 1000 claimable blocks. Most of you will already have 1000k claimable blocks because you have been online since release, you just don't have access to claim land until you rank up. The Trusted rank also has this, but in the future we will look at increasing this rank's maximum amount of claimable land, for now they are equal on this part.    How do I claim? Get out a golden shovel and right click 2 points just like worldedit. Your claim will automatically be created and you can start trusting players on your land /trust [player]   Will claims expire? In the future, we will be adding an expiry to claims (and Latch), so if you don't login/build on claimed land then it will start to be deleted, allowing people to raid your unprotected chests, etc.   A server restart is pending to make the Latch changes live, this will be done shortly. - Done

    Sellt's Diary 05/13/2018

    By Sellt,
    Hello Atherys!   Time for a new Sellt Diary Entry. Much has changed since the last entry and as you know (if not go and check it out right away) we now have a survival server running. Don’t worry, we are still working on Horizons and no resources have been diverted, the survival is just something we work on when we can’t work on Horizons. But this also means we are in the process of adding additional features to the survival server to give you more to do and maybe make a few things easier. A more detailed changelog will come to the forum as soon as Dannie has fixed the last issues with a new feature (which probably will make a lot of people happy!) All in all I hope you enjoy the experience and get to know the conquest reforged mod!     Horizon wise we are still making progress at a steady level, more code has been written, more stuff has been build and things have been designed. Yeah its not very descriptive but that’s sadly the nature of it at the moment. All I can say that its going and we are still fully invested in this project. Maybe you will see some of the features popping up at some point when we need to stress test them 😊 We are still looking for artists to create skin packs for weapons and armor. So if you good at this and have some spare time, now you know what you can do to help! ->      Further for the people inclined to RP, if you not already have check out this post:
    This is still under development and there maybe some changes how it works out in the end, but it should give you a basic on how you can become canon and part of the lore of Atherys! Maybe a year into the game your character is actually a big hero listed in canon, wouldn’t that be fantastic? Or maybe even a villain, guessing some of you would prefer that       Because I was trout fishing yesterday I will present you my favorite recipe for trout: What you need:
    2 trouts
    Olive Oil
    Lemon
    parsley, dill or you favorite herbs
    salt and pepper In my case I have 2 fresh trouts that I cleaned out. You probably can buy them this way in the store too.
    While preparing the trouts, heat up the oven to 400° F and get two thick aluminium foils (big enough to wrap the fish in it). Place the trouts, skin side down, on the foil and oil them lightly with olive oil. Season the fish with salt and pepper, fill the fish with parsley, dill (or what herbs you like) and lemon slices. Fold up the aluminium to make a nice package. Bake the fish for 10-15 minutes, the fish should pull apart easily with a fork. When serving pour the juice in the foil over the fishes. And enjoy!

    A'therys Survival Launch - Post-Mortem

    HaedHutner
    By HaedHutner,
    I think it’s safe to say the launch of the A’therys Survival server is now well and truly over with. In total, I believe the server crashed a good 4 times, with intermittent connectivity issues in between. And just like any good A’therys launch, some things went very badly. Unexpectedly so. I can only imagine how the launch must have seemed from an outside viewer’s perspective. For those of you who have not previously had the honor of attending a launch of an A’therys server, then there are many veterans in our community who will assure you this launch was par the course. With a player count of 15-20, one would expect a relatively smooth experience. Well, it was anything but, and we’re under no illusions when it comes to that. The server crashed way too often and it was way too laggy. But why though? World generation. That’s it, those 2 words sum up the majority reason for why the server crashed. During testing, we naturally were very vigilant of the server’s performance. Though, we never really went above a total player count of 7 staff members. It never occured to us that there would be issues if someone, say, went and explored 11k from the spawn point within the first couple of hours. That’s obviously none of the players’ faults, we advertised it as an unlimited exploration server, so that’s what you expect to get, and damn it, we tried our best to deliver on that. Well, as it turns out, world generation has an extremely high performance impact ( who would have guessed? ). That’s not something we really considered during our testing. To our detriment, as it turned out. A’therys Survival Launch as a learning experience We’ve never really launched a survival server before. Our maps have always been pre-generated, so world generation never really entered into the equation. Now we know what it’s like when it does. And if we had to take one lesson from all of this, it’s that you should always pre-generate your world prior to launch. And that’s exactly what we’re doing right now, as I write this post. A 10kx10k block area of the map ( 390625 Chunks in total ). Furthermore, we’re going to have to introduce a world border, effectively limiting the playable area of the map within 100,000,000 block^2. This world border will stop you going any further than 5000 blocks in any direction. We intend to increase this playable area in the future. By how much, and how often, is still a matter of internal debate. But we hope that for starters, this will be more than enough to satisfy your need for exploration. Expect the server to be back up as soon as the world is done pre-generating, hopefully this time for good
     

    A'therys Survival: survival.atherys.com

    Dannie
    By Dannie,
    A'therys Survival
    (brought to you by Conquest Reforged Survival Mode)   We have a new survival server hosted on survival.atherys.com and on version 1.12.2 of the Conquest Reforged Launcher. (Download the Launcher here) This server is different to the plot server because you can build anywhere on the infinite world and with whoever you want. You can share resources using the chest lock plugin called Latch (https://ore.spongepowered.org/IchorPowered/Latch), more on that later. The server has a rollback tool incase of the inevitable grief, and all players are given access to the inspection tool so they can report it using the google form. (https://goo.gl/forms/RlwKBjgNlAT3D4Y63)  The world seed was hand picked by our Build Team and PvP is enabled globally for that added fun. More builds to be released and developed, but here’s one: (Maybe you could send us some) We also have ranks on the server to allow players to gain permissions and extras as they play. These ranks are “The Respected” and “The Trusted”, both have their own suffix aswell as permissions:   Default Rank The Respected The Trusted /spawn ✔ ✔ ✔ /back ✔ ✔ ✔ /prism inspect (Block state lookup) [Grief Prevention] ✔ ✔ ✔ /tpa   ✔ ✔ AFK Kick Bypass   ✔ ✔ Player limit Bypass     ✔ /nick     ✔ /hat     ✔ /kittycannon (No entity/environment damage)     ✔ /rocket     ✔ Homes 1 3 5   In order to gain these ranks, players need to reach goals. These goals are outlined below: The Respected
    This is the first rank other than the default and is for players who have shown a keen interest in the survival server and have brought along 3 or more new players with them. they are active in Discord and ingame These players have access to /tpa and bypass the AFK kick, they also have a red “The Respected” suffix and access to set 3 homes. The Trusted
    This is the final rank (for now) and in order to obtain this players should go out of their way to bring new players to A’therys, retweating tweets by @atheryshorizons have brought 5+ players to the server. This rank has a bunch of fun commands, aswell as 5 homes and are able to join if the server is full. They can also change their display name using /nick. Comes with a gold "The  Trusted" suffix. These people also aid staff on giving people their well-earned ranks.   These ranks will gain more permissions as we develop the server on the lead up to the A’therys Horizons server release. There is also possibility that players with the Trusted rank will gain beta access to A’therys Horizons in the future.   Latch Plugin
    Latch is a plugin which is very similar to LWC from A’therys Evo. It allows you to lock private, public, donation and shared chests, doors etc.  5 different types of locks Public locks - anyone can access, just applies protection Private locks - only players the owner adds can access Password always locks - players with the password can access (required to type every time) Password once locks - players with the password can access (only need to type the first time) Donation locks - (applies to containers) only players the owner adds can withdraw, anyone can deposit The limits for this plugin are currently set at default, however we will probably increase these soon, as Conquest Reforged holds a lot more items than standard vanilla, so don’t panic! The limits at the moment are: donation=12 password_always=12 password_once=12 private=24 public=12 total=64 Let us know what you think of the limits in the comments if you like! Prism Plugin
    Prism is a grief prevention plugin that we also use on the plot server. It basically allows us to check grief and roll it back if needed, similar to LogBlock from A’therys Evo. All players have access to the /pr i command to check if something looks out of place. If you do find a grief, promptly report it using the google form above and then we can roll it back.    Joining and Rules
    1. Upon joining, you will spawn inside a cave like this: 2. Follow this broken up path through until you get to here: 3. At this point you will want to check the rules thoroughly and say hi (maybe?)  Our rules in detail can be found at https://atherys.com/rules but here is a copy incase you are new here: No Inappropriate Links in Chat (/info rule1) - Will result in a mute
    No Harassment (/info rule2) - Will result in a ban
    No Excessive Language (/info rule3) - Will result in a mute
    No Hacking (Attempting) (/info rule4) - Will result in a ban
    And No Griefing (/info rule5) - Will definitely result in a ban Ofcourse, these can be appealed on our forums, here’s a link to that section: https://atherys.com/forums/forum/33-ban-appeals/ You will need to create a forum account.   4. And then after that… it’s your journey. Good luck!       FAQ How do I set multiple homes?
    You can use "/sethome [name]" to set another home. Using "/sethome" on it's own will set a home called "home" So, how do I teleport to one of my several homes?
    You can do "/home [name]" and that will allow you to teleport to all your different homes. Do "/home list" if you're not sure what homes you have!
