Minecraft

A whole new Minecraft Server!

Ladies and gentlemen, May I have your attention please. It is my great honour to annouce that the latest Specialattack Minecraft Server is now live to the public. You are able to join through the IP listed below.

Server IP address: smp.specialattack.net

 

With this version of the server, a few things have changes
 An updated list of the server ranks can be found HERE
But allow me to provide a brief overview for you.

Guest: The default rank for players joining the server
Member:They have an interest in the server and are becoming regular players
Veteran: Players who have been around for a long time.
Mod: This is one of the staff ranks, these guys will be able to help enforce the server rules
Admin:These players are your server's administrators, seek these people out for any help
Head Admin: Leader of the admin team and able to fix most broken things
Owner: Honestly, these people don't do a lot besides break the server.

With the new server we have also revamped our donation ranks.
Firstly we have a new donation portal, which will automatically keep track of the donation ranks which can be found HERE.
Secondly we've updated the donator rank. Now there are two teirs based on your donation amount. Each offering some fun perks and our gratitude.

Our new donation ranks are:
Hero: The first donator rank, includes name change, hats and a few other things!
Legend: The ultimate donator rank, pretty tag, name change, hats, disguise as any mob and more!

The donator ranks are a one time purchase from our buycraft site
You are also able to access our buycraft store from in-game by typing /buy

As always we've got some fancy plugins that extend the minecraft gameplay. Some of these are classics that you've enjoyed on previous maps, and some of them are new. Here are a few of the main ones.

- McMMO: Nearly everything you do in the game is a skill that you can level up.
- Mob hunter: Don't like a player? Set a bounty on their head! Also get cash for killing mobs!
- QuickShop: Sell your old junk and buy someone elses in the player shops.
- Citizens: We're working on developing a questline using this plugin.

Obviously we can't list them all here, so why not come in game and check out the rest?

 

Thanks to [SpA]Jonesy for writing this post!

MINECRAFT EVENT: Race to the Moon

Hello!

Since we have not had UHC in ages, we have decided to do more than just common UHC. This time we are going to plant a flag on the moon! And no, we are not going to do it like in the 60s with a fake camera and fake moon. This time we are going to the REAL moon!

We are going modded.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don't worry, we made the pack very light - it includes only GalactiCraft (for the Moon dimension), utility mods (Not Enough Items, AppleCore) and fancy mod (Tails), it runs on 1GB RAM just fine. Anybody can join!

Are you not familiar with modded Minecraft? That's fine, we will be assigning team captains from people that have played modded Minecraft long enough and assign the rest of the people to join them - we will be playing on 2 or 3 or maybe even 4 teams, depending on how many people will join. The more the better!

When? April 11th - Saturday. 
What time? For Europeans - evening (19:00, 20:00, 21:00), for Americans - afternoon (12:00, 13:00), for Australians morning (6:00, 7:00)

Forum topic: https://forum.specialattack.net/viewtopic.php?f=185&t=15630

How do I join? When the launch will be getting closer we will ask you to send us your Minecraft username to give you access to the modpack on http://www.atlauncher.com 

Minecraft Christmas

This year for the holidays we have added a special christmas adventure to our Minecraft server!

From now till new years, you can build a portal to the christmas dimension where you can collect presents and complete a quest to kill the Grinch.

Heres how to make the portal.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

To get yourself a Grinch spawn egg, you need to collect Christmas essence from the inside of Christmas trees. You can store this essence by talking to a banker (Skeletons in christmas outfits). Once you have 12 essence you can buy the egg from a merchant (Zombie in a christmas outfit).

Registered players can also get a free balloon by typing /balloon gui and picking one. You can turn them back off by typing /balloon off.

In other news;

mcMMO has been added to the server. It is ready to go however we will be tweaking the exp rate as it is currently a little unbalanced.

Bukkit is back with a whole new 1.8 face

After the long wait, a version of Bukkit has finally been updated for 1.8!!

Last night we installed this update along with a few simple plugins to help with the basic server operation.

  • pTweaks - To help reduce lag
  • Permissions - To get ranks back (No permissions actually given yet)
  • IRC - To continue our IRC-Minecraft communication
  • MyHome - To help out with players setting homes. Homes can be set by using a bed.
Planning is currently underway to work out which direction we want to take the server now that we have plugin support back. If you have any suggestions or ideas please feel free to let us know in the forums.
Till then,
Happy Minecrafting!

The Minecraft 1.8 Update!

The long awaited 1.8 update for our minecraft servers is finally here. We'd like to thank our staff for their work on preparing the map along with the community for being involved in the discussions leading up to the release.

You can join the server at: smp.specialattack.net

To read more about the new server check out the forum post.

Mongodorongo and Skeletonmatt create Eco-tower on SMP

Two of our players have recently finished building the "Eco-tower" from "anno 2070" on our SMP minecraft server.

Mongodorongo and Skeletonmatt have created a video showcase of their impressive work which can be viewed on youtube.

If you want to visit the actual building ingame then headover to our SMP server for a bit of awesomeness (use "/warp ecotower" to get teleported to the tower)!

SpA Minecraft UHC - July

Its that time again everyone. Our UHC (Ultra HardCore) tournament is back, and this time its better than ever!

What is UHC?
UHC is a gamemode made popular by the mindcrack community. It consists of players being randomly spawned around a large map leaving them to survive and battle it out to determine the winner. Everything is against you here, as your health does not regen naturally. The only way you can achieve this is by eating golden apples or drinking regeneration potions.

You can read more about it HERE (Includes Rules, Past game information, etc.)

How to participate

Make sure you are in mumble by the starting time. You don't need to be able to talk, it just helps for us to know who is playing and communicate instructions easier.

When is it?

The UHC Event begins in roughtly 6 and a half hours. Check out the link for an actual countdown.
