We've got some very big news to announce today. As many of you may know, Ace and Hrby have donated a lot to the server. Spalw and I have been selling small amounts of shares to them, since we have been running out of funds to pay for the server (the price of 5.56 rifle ammunition, the ammo we use to shoot camels in the outback of Australia to reduce our carbon footprint, has been going up, due the second Great Emu War raging on in Australia and the demand being higher) and recently, they've accumulated a total of 51% of the server shares. This means that they are now the controlling interest of MCDrugs.
What does this mean to you players? Not much. To keep the current playerbase happy, the new owners have only decided to make a couple very small changes:
- The server is no longer MCDrugs, but MCFish. Drugs are now outlawed and completely unable to be sold. Fish can be sold at the fish market on the beach.
- The new administration, being exceedingly devoted to their faith, have decided to make the server strictly Christian. This has caused these minor rule changes:
- Players who use bad words in chat will be asked kindly to attend reconciliation.
- Reconiliation is held on Sundays, and any ban (even permanent) can be instantly appealed and unbanned by attending.
- Since gluttony is a deadly sin, the weekly drop parties are being replaced by weekly Bible story readings. Extra emphasis on fishy Biblical stories, such as John 21, Jonah 1-4, etc.
- All players are required to attend Sunday mass.
- Sunday is the sabbath, fishing or working in other ways on this day is not allowed.
- Potions are being disabled, as they represent magic and witchcraft.
- Since all players should be good Christians who follow the commandments and beatitudes, the Factions plugin will be disabled. Players should have the morals to recognize that stealing or destroying other players' work is a sin.
- Chastity will be enforced. Any act of minecraft sex before marriage will be punished by stoning.
- All infidels will be executed by stoning.
- Police no longer moderate drug selling, but illegal fishing. If you are caught fishing away from designated fishing areas, police have the authority to give you a stern, strongly worded warning.
- Due to increased need for good fishing waters, the main world will be flooded at Y level 150. Any bases under this level will be filled with water.
- New fisherman ranks will be coming in soon. At that time, everyone's rank will be reset to the new default rank, Guppy.
- To create a more immersive fisherman experience, the following changes will be made in the coming weeks:
- Inventory space will be limited to 6 slots. Fishing backpacks can be purchased on our webstore for $24.99 per extra inventory slot.
- Hunger rates will be increased by 10x.
- Players will need to sleep for at least 6 of the 24 ingame hours, or they will pass out and be kicked from the server for 9 ingame minutes.
- Teleporting will be disabled. There will be only one warp between the spawn and the main world, every other distance must be made on foot or boat.
Both the new and former staff hope that these changes do not affect gameplay too much. We intend to keep MCDrugsFish the same experience.
Fish, Sell, Excel!
EDIT: After a sudden coup, Dakotaa and Spalw have retaken control of the server. The changes have been reverted.
