As we moved worlds (did a map reset), we needed to rebuild the server spawn. Instead of using the old one, we decided to build a new one from scratch. The progress will go gradually, as we extend the new spawn with new "modules."
As of today, the spawn features a central bank, where you can deposit and withdraw your money to prevent them from being stolen when PvP-ing, a public enchanting and repair tool-shop and we started work on the new admin store. Check by the spawn from time to time to see the development!
We've added the mini-game Treasure Hunt to FMC. Random chests will appear from time to time, as announced in global chat, and you must lay out on an adventure and travel a great distance of blocks to capture it. The contents of the chests vary, but you can see the rarity of the contents in the announcements.
To track for a treasure chest, you use rotten flesh. By punching with this item in your hand, a notice will appear for you in chat, telling you how many blocks off you are from the treasure. It is then your quest to locate the chest, and capture it before anyone else does. Be careful, chances are more people are tracking for the very same chest, and you might have to defend yourself along the way!
FMC is now running on a Minecraft 1.7.8-compatible version of the Spigot server software. This means you may now update your client without losing the option to connect to our server at play.falcmc.eu.
If you click on "Map" in the main menu on the website, you get to see a live map of the server, with the location of online players and what's being said in chat.
To be able to chat through the map, to the in-game players, use the command /dynmap webregister while in-game. This generates a security code for you, which you use during registration on the map-site, to associate your in-game account with the map account (see "Log in to chat" in the lower-left corner of the map screen.)
Players will not be shown while being underground (like in caves, in their houses, under trees, etc), during night, or when they sneak (pressing the shift-key.)
