SolarXD and EmberCraft Update

SolarXD Owner posted Thu at 13:31

I just wanted to update everyone on my personal situation. I've received several messages asking if I have abandoned the server.  The answer is simply no I have not left the server.  I am currently dealing a medical situation involving damaged nerves on the left side of my back wrapping around to the front of my chest. I've been dealing with this situation that puts me in constant moderate to severe pain 24/7.  This has been ongoing for the last 4 months.  Because of this condition I have been avoiding stressful situations as it makes the pain worse.  I will be around as much as I can when I am feeling well as there is a pile of work to be done.

As far as EmberCraft is concerned things are still going along as normal. EmberIsles development is in FULL swing.  MineconSE will be happening later this month which will hopefully bring in more people.  We also have a few other smaller projects in the works which you'll be seeing soon.  Obviously due to my down time there are a few small projects that still need to be finished like the markets and server changes announced awhile ago.  So please keep telling people about the server to help us grow! The more players the better. The more rank purchases means the more devs we can hire and the more features we can have!

Thank you for taking the time to read this small update.  If you have any questions or issues please let us know.  If you do send me a message it may be just a little bit until I'm able to respond.

blah blah blah 1 year go blah blah things were tough blah blah... blah. Blah blah here we are blah. Just kidding! We just wanted to say THANK YOU for all of your support through this last year. It sure was a tough one!

Now onto the winners of the EmberCraft 1 year anniversary giveaway! I was going to make a front page list but it was a long list so I just left them in the Google document. Some of the prizes have already been awarded. For the rest you will get a message via Enjin with information about your prize and how to redeem it.


There were several entries that were disqualified for entering of mains and alts, banned from the server, or were just junk entries. This removed a good few entries and as such some people have won two items. If you have any questions as always please just let me know and I'll do my best to answer them for you.  Happy EmberCrafting everyone! Thank you for one great year!

NOTE: Some of the messages will get to you tomorrow.  I have to do these by hand since they contain coupon codes. So that is a lot of messages I need to get out!

PS: There was a lot of stuff to do in order to get all of these to work properly so I wouldn't be surprised if I goofed up somewhere. If something isn't working please send me a PM and I'll fix it :)

maxwellpj Gratz!
ddem0n Awesome, I'm always short on claim blocks, these really help xD
Nearly one year ago we as a community came into existence. We have seen many people come and go. We have seen many setbacks as well as good progress.  The important thing is not that we don't have 1000's of players but that we have a solid community who helps each other. We have a community that goes above and beyond to help anyone in need. You don't get that very many other places! geneSW and SolarXD would like to thank all of you for everything. It has been an interesting journey and we have no plans to stop here!

Upcoming Changes!

- Market is going to be redone to fill a more traditional server market. This will allow people to buy/sell more common goods.
- This one we know NOBODY has asked for but we are doing it anyways... JOBS! Yes, we are finally bringing jobs to the server. ;)
- We are also going to increase the default starting claim blocks from 500 to 1500! The other ranks will also be bumped up accordingly
- Not only that we are going to enable the ability for players who are playing on the survival server to auto accrue claim blocks. This means the more you play the more claim blocks you can get!
- Vote rewards will soon give more than just cash and points.

- Faction sizes will be doubled
- Enchant limitations will be removed
- Opples will be enabled
- Strength 2 will stay disabled(at this time)
- Market will undergo a similar transition as the survival market
- End access will be given to donors
- Vote rewards will soon give more than just cash and points.

- Not much here other than EmberIsles is making very good progress. If everything continues and we don't hit another setback we should be looking at a beta very soon.
- Vote rewards will soon give more than just cash and points.

- Creative has officially launched under a BETA label.
- We have WorldEdit access and VoxelSniper support(Donor access only for VoxelSniper)
- The Freebuild world is delayed a bit due too some conflicting plugin issues that I'm working on
- For more details on creative go HERE

Please note that all of these changes are currently a work in progress. They will be worked on in the coming days and weeks. For progress on these please be sure to check the changelog.

Benonz Really excited for the market change! ...
kevinhow WHO WON?
crazycreevy Grats to the people who won

        Should we announce the winners or keep up the suspense? Okay, fine! Before you do find out who the winners are I just wanted to thank everyone for participating in this contest. The guidelines were very very restrictive.  Not only that the information that we were getting from MineconSE wasn't always accurate and some of those changes messed with this contest. So lets review the rewards and then lets see who won! 

1st Place:
$100 ThinkGeek Gift Card
Ranks: Legendary, Inferno, Olympian, and EmberCrafter(creative[coming soon])
Beta Tester Tag on the website
Unique Forum Tag that is currently being designed
MineconSE Emerald VIP rank on the MineconSE Server

2nd Place:
$50 ThinkGeek Gift Card
Ranks: EmberCrafter(creative[coming soon])
Beta Tester Tag on the website
MineconSE Emerald VIP rank on the MineconSE Server

3rd Place: 
$25 ThinkGeek Gift Card
MineconSE Emerald VIP rank on the MineconSE Server

1st Place Winner - Nidhux
Entry - Gucci-Wucci - THE DESTROYER (with kid)
Info - This build was selected for how it stood out, technical ability, and the fact that organic builds are very hard to pull off in such a small space.

Nidhux 1st Place

2nd Place Winner - Pixie6658
Entry - EmberCraft is not just a server. It's family <3
Info - This build was picked not because of the build itself but how the builder captured the feel of EmberCraft with the information on the signs/booth.

3rd Place Winner - basketballfan25
Entry - Mini CubeClimber
Info - This was picked because it was a very unique aspect of EmberCraft that usually isn't utilized as good as it should be.  It had great information, stood out from all the builds, and was interactive.

NOTICE: Prizes will be given out tomorrow morning. ThinkGeek is taking its sweet time activating the gift cards. Their customer service stated they should be good to go sometime tomorrow. Once I receive them I will pass them on. Each winner will receive a private message from me (SolarXD) tomorrow with all of your prize details!

xX_BaxteR_Xx And no one reminded me about this? Gonna go cry in my bed now but first a congratulations to the winners.
Pixie6658 *ghasp!* OMG thank you so much for considering my build and congrats to the other winners <3 my family in a server!
