We are pleased that after much hard work, we are opening our shiny new Vanilla Minecraft server to the community! It is located at minecraft.vaultf4.com (or the same IP as the old tekkit server) and you can connect using the stock minecraft 1.5.2 client. As per with FTB, we are going to be using a whitelist setup for world modification (you can login to look around without being on the whitelist). Since we cannot directly transfer the whitelist over (there is a new permissions setup) I've decided the whitelisting for both servers will be done separately. Please reply below with your IGN to be whitelisted. I plan to maintain the 48 hour whitelist rule for this server, _BUT_ if you are already whitelisted on FTB, this wait will be waived. Edit: We've decided to waive the 2-day wait for Vanilla as there are no worldguard breaking mods involved. FTB Whitelist Rules, which also apply here: Rules are the same as for FTB, and can be summed up as "Don't be an ass". So no griefing, stealing, destroying people's things, etc. Some additional information on this server: Care Packages: As of now, the supporter Care package carries to BOTH minecraft servers, but is only a single package in the Minecraft Store (under Starter Packages). Vanilla Packages: Packages for the Vanilla Server have their own special category and may be found here: http://vaultf4.buycraft.net/category/53758 Note there are SEVERAL packages which sell sponges. All are priced the same. This is so they are interchangeable and if you buy one and want the other we don't need to hassle with pricing etc. These packages are: Special Protection, Plot Terraform, and Extra 50x50 plot. Special protection will get you a worldguarded region from the surface upward. This is if you want to build something massive but don't need to extend to bedrock - so people can still mine under it but not harm it! Plot Terraform involves an admin coming to level your plot to whatever height you want and fill it for you with a construction material. Good to get started or if you want to wipe your base and start fresh. Extra 50x50 is exactly as it sounds, an extra 50x50 plot belonging specially to you! WorldGuarding: Yes, we have WorldGuard installed and will follow a similar setup to FTB for getting your 50x50 plots guarded. As with FTB you can purchase additional plots. Additional Protection: We have installed Lockette as well to let you protect some items outside your worldguarded region. See http://dev.bukkit.org/server-mods/lockette/ for a tutorial on how this nifty plugin works! Player Slots: We are currently limited to 8 player slots while we test out the free version of the server management tool McMyAdmin. If we don't encounter any major issues we will look at purchasing a license for it that will overcome this restriction (and also move FTB to the same setup! Problems with permissions: We have several new plugins and while I think we have them configured correctly, please let me know ASAP if you find problems - things you can't do but should be able to, and vice versa. There is a rail system under spawn that extends 500 blocks in each primary direction. We may look at extending it if necessary. Sleep Mode: If the server is idle (no players) for more than 30 minutes, it will enter sleep mode. When you log in it will show you an error message similar to "The server has run away, please wait while we go catch it". It will wake up the server and you simply need to log in again to play. That said, please enjoy, have fun, and build away!
