    Hello everyone,

    Today, we will be taking the exceptional step of updating CivCheat. As some of you may know, CivCheat is a customized fork of AAC created by konsolas. The server was running version 1.9.9 and we have updated to AAC 3.0.3 (upgraded 2 whole versions).

    Obviously, with an update so drastic expect to see some faults. There will be some bugs and false positives in the following days, however all will be detected and fixed immedietly. From now until beta testing is complete, CivCheat will have "BETA" text in the prefix, signaling that the build has not fully been tested.

    Hopefully this will improve the quality of our anticheat to compete with the ever-increasing pace of cheat/hack development. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Hello,

    Today's referendum will run until December 22, 2016. It regards the current nether vault crisis, more specifically, the ability for players to create claimed vaults and store valuables without running the risk of being war-flagged, since warflagging is impossible due to the restrictions placed on above-nether building and traversing. This is a critical problem that warrants an urgent solution.

    Two solutions will be presented and are potiential outcomes if they achieve the majority of the vote. Neither solution will be to retain the status quo, meaning a change to the nether will be made.

    OPTION 1:
    Allow flagging in the nether

    This option would allow players to go above the nether bedrock and up until y=147, allowing 20 blocks from the bedrock layer to another invisible buffer. Within this area above the nether, war-flags would be able to be placed and defended.The placing or interaction with any storage block would be prohibited, and mob spawning would be disabled above the nether.

    OPTION 2: Disable claiming in the nether

    This option would remove all Towny claims in the nether and prevent further claiming. If voted for, there would be a 2 week warning period for everyone to move out valuables before claims would be removed and prevented.

    Hello everybody,

    As it's become obvious, the server activity has decreased drastically since summer. While I am extremely proud of how successful the server was this summer (breaking our records), it's become apparent that changes need to be made to increase the server's stimulation, and to keep game play fresh.

    All school breaks, especially summer, are a hit for us. With the school year we saw a decrease in activity, which was normal. Likely we will see a drastic increase of activity during Thanksgiving and Christmas/Winter break.

    To increase activity, I'm proud to announce a ban purge, to give banned players another chance.

    All players that were banned for an offense OTHER THAN DDOSing/Threats will have the opportunity to submit another appeal, and probably get unbanned. Please note that this does not apply to any player banned for DDoSing or DDoS threats.

    Thank you!

    Hello everyone,

    Alt rules have now officially been formalized and the official rules post has been updated with the following:

    Alt Rules:
    Players must declare all other accounts if any one of them is war-flagged. They must disclose them to the public in general chat (when at least 10 people are online), at least one member of staff, and the nation that they are at war against.

    To reiterate, you MUST declare ALL your other accounts if ANY of your accounts is war-flagged. The other accounts you need to declare are all those that you own and have ever logged onto the server with. If you log into the server with a new account, you must declare that as well. Connecting accounts are determined by IP, human being, and/or as reasonably interpreted as staff.

    You must do the following when declaring your other accounts:
    • Tell general chat when at least 10 people are online
    • Tell at least one member of staff
    • Tell the nation that you are at war against
    A good example of declaring is saying "I, (your name on this account), declare that my other accounts are as follows: (all your other accounts go here)." Please note that you must declare all your alts.


    • G. Alternate account calling rules. Players may request a player that they come on another account that they wish to war-flag if they are online with another account that they disclosed or used to disclose. Players may not call a player to join to war-flag them and end up not war-flagging.
    Alt Calling Rules:

    If you wish to war-flag someone and they are online with an alternate account that they disclosed or used to disclose, you may request that they get online to war-flag them. However, if you request that they get online to war-flag them and fail to war-flag them you will be punished.
