    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
    (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   Staff keep a close eye on the server and if they see a worth player of the following (see below) ranks will be awarded: 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 created a settlement on the server with a handful of people. they are active in Discord and in-game. they welcome new members and show them the ropes. 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, (optional) retweating tweets/instagram posts by @atheryshorizons will be recognised and appreciated. have created multiple settlements across the server. getting new members introduced to A'therys; the lore, A'therys Horizons, the build server, etc. 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 the staff on recognising other players with these traits.   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!

    A'therys Horizons Development is now Open-Source!

    HaedHutner
    By HaedHutner,
    Open-Source?! Yes, that's right, you heard correctly. Development for A'therys Horizons is from now open-sourced. What does this mean? I'll explain below.   What? Open-source is actually quite simple to define. Every bit of software you use has program code behind it, also known as source code. The idea of open-source is that anyone is able to view the code responsible for whatever they're interacting with on screen.   That is what we've done as well. As of today, we have published the source code of 2 of our plugins on GitHub.   AtherysCore: https://github.com/Atherys-Horizons/AtherysCore A number of utilities which are used by other plugins. Without this, out other plugins would be incapable of functioning. AtherysTowns: https://github.com/Atherys-Horizons/AtherysTowns A land-management plugin inspired by Towny. I'll be honest, it's a Towny clone. I'm not one to argue with established and proven-to-work solutions, so there's no need to reinvent the wheel.   Why? One of the issues with developing so much code for such a large project as A'therys Horizons is that it takes time. Getting help for all of this is even harder, especially since we have to build upon Sponge, a platform for server-side plugins which can be utilized with a Forge server. There just isn't that much expertise out there. And while I like to think I'm dedicating as much of my time as possible, it still doesn't seem to be enough.    My hope is that by doing this, we can recruit some extra talent to help us out. No-strings-attached contributions are the way many open-source projects prosper, including the Sponge project itself. There are no more barriers to entry for helping out with A'therys development. Are you interested in helping? There's the repos, you can get to work pretty much instantly.   License? GNU GPLv3: https://choosealicense.com/licenses/gpl-3.0/   Essentially, you are free to use it however you like, modify it, commercialize it, whatever, but whatever you do to it, the code must be public, and it must be licensed under GNU GPLv3 as well. You should also give us a shoutout.    Only 2 Plugins? On principle, I refuse to publish code which does not work. Obviously, I haven't only developed 2 plugins thus far. There is a substantial amount of code which is not yet published. AtherysQuests ( our in-house quest plugin ) AtherysAttributes ( a plugin for attributes ) AtherysCombat ( the plugin responsible for the overall combat experience on A'therys ) AtherysRPG ( a plugin for Skills and overall player progression ) are all still on our private GitLab repos and not published yet. AtherysEconomy ( A fork of EconomyLite, modified for our own purposes ) AtherysConquest ( A king-of-the-hill mini-game plugin which we had at the end of Evo ) This is because they're not functional yet. Half of them don't even build. There's a lot of code in those repos, but it's not ready to be put out there yet.   As these plugins are made functional, they too will be published on GitHub under the same organization ( https://github.com/Atherys-Horizons )
