    Status on Upcoming Updates:

    The next update will contain a GUI rework of the crates to be much more visually appealing, as well as further changes to increase the aesthetics of gameplay.

    We hoped to have a custom plugin we are getting developed deployed by now, but the developer possibly passed away.

    CivWars Community,

    God, what the fuck is wrong with me? Moose is on the staff team now? What has CivWars become?

    Having Moose on the staff team means a few things;

    1. The amount of time he dedicates to video games (Especially Minecraft) daily can be used for a positive impact on the community rather than him pissing off and pissing on nearly everything.
    2. While he is an asshole, he is extremely dedicated to this community, and really does want to see it grow.
    3. He has quite a bit of knowledge on keeping players interested as well as having new ones come in consistently.

    So now I have Moose enslaved to CivWars forever, now what?

    Moose's ultimate goal here is to connect what the server's community needs and wants and finding the best way to implement new things. Moose's access is extremely limited. He has no access to the live server, website, or PII (Personal Identifiable Information) of players. He can only play with the Dev server when he is doing work for the server.

    In the past few weeks what has Moose been working on?

    Moose has reworked the 1.8 PVP system on the server
    Moose has re-worked a lot of the crates and crates rewards.
    Moose has implemented a system in that you can invite friends to the server and receive rewards.
    Moose plans to work with language files of Towny to make it more unique to Civ
    Moose has created custom kill messages that will display in chat
    Moose has implemented damage indicators.

    All of this will be tested and implemented into the live server in the next update.

    So what can DJ Froggy Fresh do for me?

    Moose's ultimate goal here is to create that communication between the community and the server in its entirety. He will be receiving a small section on the forums that he can manage that is re-doing the suggestions system currently in-place. Does this mean that management is going to be less involved? No, this is a way for us to actually come up with ways for things that are suggested to be implemented. But also for the ideas that we do come up we are able to go to Moose and he will be able to gauge community reaction. In Moose's section on the forums he will be allowed to post polls and discussions.

    Hello everyone,

    I am happy to announce that the wiki has been getting some love. See the changes in action here.

    First and foremost, in the interest of user privacy & security, an account is now required to contribute.

    Second, the CivWars logo is now on the wiki as the wordmark and favicon.

    Third, I have cleaned up many pages/categories, and practically every page has been definitively categorized.

    Lastly, a small change, the theme now has a bit of orange for the classic CivWars color scheme.

    Go read some history! :)

    • Money (significantly) & gold blocks (mildly) buffed on all crates.
    • Elytra are now enabled in the end. Go wild flyboys.
    • Since you can't claim in the nether, we've enabled silk touching blaze spawners in the nether. Be careful, once you place them in the overworld you will not be able to move them.
    Store Changes
    • Merchant's License duration upped to a month.

    To celebrate the crate buff, I'll be giving out some free keys Saturday, July 20th at 6PM PST/9PM EST. Hop on to fight at KOTH and get some keys.
