2018-02-18_22.10.29.png

Hello everyone! It has come apparent to us over the past few months that our survival is in desperate need of a clean up. It's been over a year since our last new world, and we think it's for the best to part ways. We plan on a floor to ceiling revamp of how Survival runs and how you get to play it. New spawn, new plugins, new features, new shop, and finally: a new world. A complete restart of Tower Network survival is coming your way March 1st. More info will come soon detailing what new features we plan on adding.

The existing survival world will be online till March 17th 11:59 PM. Don't be sad though, we plan on having Survival go out with a bang! (Pun intended) We will announce more details soon once they get worked out. :)

We hope this restart is not just a change for Survival, but for Tower Network as a whole. With our new logo. we're striving to clean up all aspects of our server to deliver a unified Tower Network playing experience. We hope you're as excited as we are about the future of Tower Network, and that you'll stay see the changes.

New TN, here we come.

Auctions are back!
Budgeting-and-Bidding-Strategies.jpg

As some of you have noticed, the very first day when we removed Auctions, the /ah was gone.
This is one of updates where we are aiming to encourage player interaction between each other.

So why Auctions?
Well we saw that the addon was not used as much as we expected. There were no items is in at all, eve though that it is the easiest way to sell items in the Survival and make profit. So higher staff members talked about this and we decided that we will add an older style (and more interactive) of Auctions on Survival.

How do they work?
The new Auctions system is based on chat messages instead of menus, so all users will always see that you are auctioning an item, be it a spawner, an very good pickaxe or a mob head. The plugin has been for a long time, we also know it for quite long, and it has been improved in all possible ways, so there no chance you will ever lose an item or enchantment because of a bug.

How am I supposed to use Auctions?
You can list a full toturial here :)

HeadDrops chances were changed!
maxresdefault.jpg

We changed all MobHead drop chances.

We try to balance everything on our network, and so we did with heads. We understand that the chances were very unbalanced, so we got together and started working on the configuration files. After a the work and time we invested in this, we think that the drop chances are more balanced than ever before.
But as always, if you think that there should be anything changed, feel free to post a suggestion here or if you think it is a bug, post it here, so we can take a look at it, lucky enough we are not too-hard working hamsters, so we might have missed something or made a mistake.

So what are the new drop chances?
You can check out the current drop percentage here
Code:
The rates are in percentage, where 0.5 would mean 0.5% or 0.005 drop rate.

Endermite:
  drop-rate: 0.5

Vindicator:

Update log time!
divider pixel.png

And yes, once again, after so long, we are posting an update log. This time, we are bringing some new life and love to our Survival server :) We have been working hard, despite the NewYear, and we made our server even better than it was!

[​IMG]
Opening Update.log ...
1-currency-small-gold-stack.png
PLAYER SHOPS | SERVER SHOP | ECONOMY
We have a player shop plugin from the start, but there is not really a lot of people that use it at the time being. When we started the server, we were aiming for the economy to be based on player shops, but over time, based on mistakes from our side, it became based on server shop. So now we took a step forward to our original vision and made server shop have higher prices. We really want to encourage the use of player shops, so expect some more updates on this topic coming soon

iron-sword.png
PVP MODE

We also noticed that the new players did not know how to disable PVP, so we switched the default settings so that as soon as you join the first time, you PVP will be disabled.

sugarcane_icon32.png
SUGAR CANE | JOBS

There was also some demand coming from your side for us to enable usage of sugar cane in Farmer jobs. This has been now taken care of. We made sure that exploiting is not an issue any more, but it's still usable.

For those who have spent a good deal of time grinding your jobs levels to rank 1, you can now see your head displayed above your name at spawn. For the aspiring players, this is another reason to grind harder!

chicken-egg.png
EGGCATCHER | RANKS

The eggcatcher plugin was added in hope to add more diversity to the player shop economy. However, allowing members of all ranks to egg sheep, pigs and chickens has resulted in a lack of reason for selling meaningful spawn eggs (such as pigs and cows) in players hops. At the same time, we do not wish for members to lose out on the egging experience. As such, the following changes have been made:​
  • Members will still be able to egg zombies and skeletons but will no longer be able to egg pigs chickens and sheep
  • Warriors will no longer be able to egg sheep
  • Soldiers will no longer be able to egg pigs
  • Egging permissions for all other ranks remain the same.
Falling-gold-coins.png
RANKS | STORE

We also understand that 10.00 Euro for the first Soldier rank might come across as too much for players looking to make their first time purchase on the server. In light of that, the price of soldier rank has been lowered to 6.70 Euro. Go grab that rank you have long been eyeing for!

103514-128.png
TYPOS | STORE

Miscellaneous typos have been fixed in store to make your purchases clearer.

We are back ♪ - on the track ♪

Hello fellow Minecraft player!​
Today is a pretty special day for me and that also makes a pretty special day for TowerNetwork. Today, after a long time and hard work, we got on 21 players!
Screenshot_45.png

Before you read on what follows next, if you consider yourself an OG, check out the image in the spoiler above and try to find something that might ring a bell to you ;)
"OG" stands originally for "original gangster" but in gaming community that would rather mean "gamer", which would result in "Original Gamer" This is used to "label" players/gamers who are in a community for a very long time.

What I am talking about is a very specific player which goes by the name "FrozenFever" You might not know much about him, but let me tell you that if you have to thank someone for TowerNetwork being as it is at the moment, it's him.
You might be asking yourself why I am talking about him? Well to be honest, I do not want to talk just about him, but rather about this whole day and some changes that will drastically change TowerNetwork's future. One of them is Frozen coming online, which made my day much better and gave me that energy that I needed to get on, be proud of TowerNetwork and our community.
But this is not just one person that brightened my day up! There's also one of our old staffs that some of you might remember him. @HandsomeGent decided to come back and with him the good ol' Cosmic Nights!
I would also really like to thank another member of our team that came back some time ago and kept himself a bit in the back, not really exposing himself too much, @Herox . He is one of our builders, and he is the one who you can thank to for some of our amazing custom-build SkyWars maps that (as seen on the scene) quite a lot of you really like :)

I would also like to thank everyone else in the staff team that has helped in the last month or two.​
divider pixel.png
Back on those sweet 20+
Another thing that you can see on the image above is that we got on 21 players at once. And that did not happen just once today, but multiple times this evening, so a bit thanks also to you, players, that play on TowerNetwork and make our community grow :)
divider pixel.png
Giveaway!
And YES! There is also a giveaway.
We will be giving out a Warrior rank (or a rank upgrade if you are higher-raked) to a random user (that is not staff)
In order to enter you need to comment your story how you got on...​
Sorry for not-so-good-login update log, but i'm typing this at 00:20am...

Updates from last week;

Survival> Changed clearlag delay between messages

Survival> Fixed the issue where user with rank "GOD" could also claim kits that were granted to lower ranks (Emperor for example)

HUB> Fixed the issue where mobs were spawning on HUB
Main server> Fixed some system bugs with fallback servers
when you get kicked from auth, you got sent on HUB server, which allowed some users to abuse a glitch.

Now the bigger part!
Updated HUB!
Added advent calendar and its rewards /calendar
hidden rewards on secret days
[Xmas2k17] tag,​
Special Frosty-Pet,
You get a reward every day.​

New "Icy" Parkour!

That's all for now - much more coming in next few weeks, so stay tuned!
Also stay safe and healthy.

Regards,
TNstaff team.​
Hello fellow TN players!
This week has been especially exciting for me, but not only because of the updates mentioned bellow, but also because it is November and we all know what there are holidays next month including Christmas!
(Expect some neat stuff :big_smile: )​

Back to the point! As usually the staff team has spent some time improving our network and here is a list of some things that have been done in the past week.

We have updated the server time on tablist ( -1 hour )
[​IMG]

Changed the "GO VOTE" message delay on Survival from 15mins to 30mins delay between each
Code:
settings:
  remindseconds: 1800
Fixed some issues on the serverBoard on HUB

Updated, fixed and changed permissions and functions that discord roles can have access to (mostly YouTuber, Streamer and Staff roles)

Reorganised some store items and added custom icon-items in /buy menu in-game
[​IMG]

Fixed the function in chat that inserted /store command instead of /buy command when you clicked on a player's rank in chat
[​IMG]

Fixed the grammar in HasVoted message on hub from "... have voted..." to "... has voted..."

Added some snowy particles on forums, also CPU friendly (will stop the animations when you are not focused on the browser) and mobile CPU friendly (disabled on mobile devices)
[​IMG]

Replaced the default background images with the "winter-pack"
[​IMG]

Updated the chat format (Staff> Aqua&Lime, Ranked> white, Default>gray)
[​IMG]
[​IMG]
[​IMG]

Fixed the resource link in join message on TheLab1 server
[​IMG]

Fixed permissions for commands /pack /start /leave

This are all changes that I remember, but I am sure that there were some more.

Kind regards, TowerNetwork staff team.
  1. We have removed UHC since no one was playing on it at all.
    Following to this, we had to modify some things that will follow next;
    - Updated tablist
    - Updated SideBar (HUB)
    - Updated Menu (HUB)​
  2. Player connecting system
    You (as players) might have not noticed, but we have updated our system for player balancing, connection from server, to other servers and similar.
  3. Fixed most of the tablist issues
    including some players being bugged from time to time (on tablist of course)
  4. We have also updated the application requirements, which can be found here.
  5. Finally, we have added another custom map to our SkyWars Solo-map collection!

    It is named Jungle, hosts 2 players, which means it is 1v1 map.
    It is bigger than our other 1v1 map called duels, and has more chests that you can loot.

    Thanks to @Girl (Megaxx) for helping with some fast decoration and other details.


This is all I have for this week's update-log. I am sure we've done some more, but I haven't really noted down every single detail.

Regards, TowerNetwork staff team.
Halloween 7/10/2017

[​IMG]

First of all, I would like to thank @HandsomeGent and @Martijnkop for making such a great Event world, it was really fun, even for me that I knew almost everything of "what is going to happen"

[​IMG]

Second of all, thanks to everyone that came on the event, it was really nice to see that we got on 18 players and I hope that these events will give such a boost to the playerbase, just as BCE (Best Christmas Ever) did, so we can make TowerNetwork have ~40 players daily online, if not even more :3

Unfortunately I could not screenshot the 18players, but I did the 17 online
[​IMG]

[​IMG]

If you haven't noticed yet, there is a 20% off sale in our store, so you should go check it out and support the community.

Q&A;
Q: "But Lazo, why do you need money ?"
A: "So I can pay for the servers. There is not such thing as 'free' in this world"

Q: "And what will you do, if you get more donations as needed?"
A: "Keep them on PayPal, so I will be able to pay for the servers even when there will not be enough donations for that month"

Q: "If I donate, what will I get?"
A: "Depends on what you choose in store ;) "


[​IMG]

Enough of this sellout, enjoy these few screenshots I took ;)

Forums Email works
The forums update!
The email server is from now on working. It is also pretty fast, it takes about 6 seconds for the email to be delivered.

Example:
Yeah, the forums ARE back, but not for everyone. Sadly enough, moving on a self-managed host, means taking some time and setting everything up, such as WebServer, drivers, MailServer, settings so the URLs do not look messed up, but are organised and so on.

What does that mean? Well everything is faster, better, improved and so on, but not-yet confirmed users will not be able to confirm their accounts until that is done, so keep yourself updated!
How? Check our status page from time to time, or these forums ;)

Kind regards,
~Lazos
Lazosplaying, Noodles and some other staff (including me) are working on semi-vanilla and it is going great! We are almost ready for its release! There is one way you can help and that is by getting on and supporting what me and the other staff do also get all your buddies on as this is going to be the start of something new! :)
Hello fellow TowerNetwork players!

I am happy to announce that the "old TowerNetwork" is coming back. With old goods and new stuff (read more about new stuff bellow)
divider3.png

What is new?

Well there is a lot of things that will be renewed, remade or at least changed and updated.
For example; When purchasing a rank, you will have to be on HUB in order for it to update.

Nicknames
There will also be global nicknames, which means that if you have a rank (Warrior or above) you will be able to set your nickname that will be applied globally. For example; You set your nickname on HUB and then connect to Survival, the nickname will stay the same. The nickname is also shown on the tablist (not nametags)

Tags
Also a new feature are tags
Screenshot_71.png
These are sadly not global (yet?). There are, as you can see in the menu title, 53 different tags, displayed on 2 pages.

Why care about tags?
Tags can make expose you in chat. For example, there are tags like "TNArmy", "Rich", "Beast", "Mythical" and many more, that can make you look much more 'bad-ass' as without.

You can win these tags in crate(s) located on HUB.

Crates
Including tags, there are 179 rewards in VoteCrate(s) on HUB. You can open those when voting (check info-board on HUB for exact amount of keys you have)

divider3.png

New Gamemode(s) ?

There are new gamemodes!

There won't be any direct information, but you have a chance to win a 10$ Coupon


(if you are logged in, if not register here and then login)
First 5 players who will post correct gamemode(s) in this forum
will get an 10$ Coupon valid in our online store (applies to any item in out store)
