Hey guys, as promised late in april, i'm happy to announce that Minetime is finally back! I wanted to do things differently this time and make it right, I would like to apologize for the lack of updates and obvious decline and downtime the server went under. It was nothing that I intended and just life got in the way. With the quarantine, I spent more time going back to the roots that Collin left and will be sticking to that style, however just improving it. With this official release, PvPFest and Prison will be the only servers out currently, I feel these two servers were the most widely known on Minetime and it is a good place to start to just improve and work on for a bit before going on to a different genre. Please keep in mind that there is still a lot to do. Certain features such as crates and kits will be unavailable right now as we determine what to bring back and how to balance them. We will also be using this upcoming week to work on anything missing and to add anything that will benefit Minetime. It would be greatly appreciated that if you have any suggestions to post them on the forums along with any bugs you may experience. PvPFest will currently be using the oldschool split-biome map created back in 2014 by RealNickonator. If a new map is requested after some time, we can go ahead and do this and leave the current map something to teleport to as well. I have added some features such as statistics, leaderboards, bounties, an auction house, and daily rewards. Prison will also be using one of the classic maps, I improved this with the above mentioned features along with adding prestiges, koths, a plugin for auto ore/xp pickup, and improving factions. Like before, we will be allowing hacks on Minetime. We will be using a basic version of AntiCheat and over time making some hacks less strict. In order to use hacks, your modded client must be modified to bypass and we will not be banning for offenses. There is a change that some of you guys may have mixed feelings on, first off, the Admin rank will be changing to Epic. I have decided to do this as it is something that new players won't understand, with people asking "Admins" staff responsibilities. As it of course is well known as a staff rank. I think for overall growth this change will be best for the server. The colors of most of the ranks will be changing as well, I will likely modify some of these back and forth during this week to get them looking right. The webstore will be inactive right now as I haven't worked on it just yet, however after it is up there will be a sale as requested though keep in mind with the colors, some perks may change too. If you are missing a rank or a previous upgrade, our email will be active soon too. Along with all of these updates, while logging in you may notice an icon mentioning how Minetime is a "galaxy server apart of the Mineverse", what this means is that Minetime will be a sub server accessible from Mineverse and eventually players from Mineverse will be able to visit Minetime and vise versa. Nothing will be changed, everything will still be separate besides the point of being able to connect clicking that icon. It's basically just a network within a network. This is to create more variety for new players to choose without leaving the game to do so. Lastly, I have taken the time to of course update and clean up everything I possibly could to create a lag free experience, anything that may occur just let us know and we can fix it. This time around, we have the fastest servers I could get and already have DDoS protection. I also wanted to say, that I will keep Minetime up for as long as I keep my other servers up, basically until the day Minecraft ceases to exist. I would like to thank Popthemop & xBMAN for their insane amount of help on all of this. Hope everyone enjoys!
