    BEHOLD! I am the necromancer! Only semi-vanilla had/has me hyped. The person below me thinks semi-vanilla spawn is copied and pasted.
  6. What is your Minecraft Username?: Nakudan What can you do to help our community? : I build stuff, I plant, I provide ...the good stuff How did you find out about Chaotic United?: I was on the Discord and I have friends from here that kept in close contact with me over the years OPTIONAL: Were you a member of the old Chaotic United from 2010-2013?: Hell yeah. I'm old as bones
  7. Hey, everyone! Remember that poll we did a few days ago? Well, taking the poll into account, we've made our decision and CU is now introducing a brand new server - a Semi-Vanilla server! sv.chaoticunited.net So, what is this server exactly? This server is the pure Minecraft experience. There is an economy system in place, as well as grief protection, and other basics. There is going to be a single donation rank - VIP, for the same price as the main server's VIP rank: 10 dollars. We will also be having time based ranking make a return as well - more details on that later. There is no McMMO, Jobs, or anything of the sort - it's essentially the core MC experience as it was designed. Additionally, there are NO donation ranks that feature things like /item, /gamemode, or /fly or any other such perks. The perks for VIP will be as follows: Semi-Vanilla VIP Perks List The goal of the server is to create an experience where all players are equal, a fair playing field. Along with this server's implementation, we've introduced BungeeCord again (and a hub that may look familiar to some of you who were around in 2016). The main purpose of implementing BungeeCord is to advertise this server separately from the main MC server. Now, this may not end up sticking and we may end up migrating the server into the multiworld setup with the main server, it just depends how things go. Until then, the servers will be isolated and you can switch between them by doing /hub, /main, and /sv. What does this mean for the main server? Nothing! All the ranks and their perks are remaining the same. In fact, we have lifted the restriction on /item - which means you can spawn to your hearts content again! The main server will continue to be our primary focus, and will receive the most attention as always. Even so, for any players looking to try a more pure Minecraft experience (or just wanting to play uninterrupted survival with your friends), we encourage you to give our new server a whirl! Bungeecord? Yes! You can connect to either server straight from the other. There is no cross server chat or message capability at this time due to several issues that we found while doing so, including problems with Discord integration as well as other problems that took more away from the experience than anything. There will be a portal in the main server hub to the left of the Survival portal that will take you to Semi-Vanilla, and the hub server will have portals that lead to both servers. Additionally, forced hosts have been setup which will allow you to connect to any server via IP. The primary IP, mc.chaoticunited.net or mc.chaoticunited.com will take you to the main server, hub.chaoticunited.net will take you to Network Hub, and sv.chaoticunited.net will take you to the Semi-Vanilla server. Why all this? Why not just make the existing Survival mode be like this instead? A few reasons. The biggest reason is previous donators - several people have donated specifically for the advantageous perks like flying, itemspawn, and so on. Taking these perks away is, in our eyes, the same as basically stealing. People paid for their abilities and they deserve to keep them. Additionally, we felt that doing it this way would be better suited on its own server in order to bring in people who, say, don't want to be in a giant server with tons of stuff - but just want pure Survival. This gives people a way to get introduced to the community and eventually explore the other server on its own. What about advertising? Not much to say yet, but I am likely going to end up with a job by the end of the month - which could open a few doors. Can't wait to see you guys on the server! We hope you guys love it, and we're excited for the ever brighter future of CU!
  8. DontBeSoHoty - Ban Appeal

    I do believe that DontBeSoHoty has had problems in the past listening to rules. When in discord voice chat, he always mic spams, hot mics, from what i know ear rape has not been a big problem with hoty in voice. Its just hoty doesn't know how to follow rules. It does make sense to me that advertising is a big offense. Because thats giving other servers free publicity. If there would ever be any advertising on the server im pretty sure it would be Haloman30 making deals with other servers to advertise each other. Thats if any advertising ever goes on. At CU there is no free publicity for any server of any kind.
  9. DontBeSoHoty - Ban Appeal

    This is from the ingame rules, note how it says "You will be banned immediately.". Advertising has been and always will be a rule where you get permanently banned upon doing so. I will wait for other staff to overview this and drop some feedback before I make a decision, but you do need to keep these rules in mind. Ignorance to the rules is not an excuse. I would also appreciate an actual appeal instead of just "i dont know why i was banned, it should have been a temp ban".
  10. DontBeSoHoty - Ban Appeal

    Server: CU Username: CUForLIfe Banned by: Haloman30 Reason: “Advertising” Appeal: I sont know why did halo man banned me for over just advertising. When that happend i was in “spectaor mode” in mod arena. After i got killed i said to my friend to go to play.**************.com. But i dont know why did i got perm banned. That was supposed to be atleast temp banned, istead of permantly ban. Thank U Ur wife (DontBeSoHoty)
  11. /gm is for Chaotic only - the highest donation rank
  12. if you want a a timer maybe 5 minutes but I enjoy the idea of a restricted "/item", allow the use of spawning things like bricks, wood, building materials, etc.. (nothing sellable), and remove /gmc for donators who aren't at the tippy top
  13. halo lied to me, I change my vote from #1 to "too short" cause 15 seconds is far too short bud
  14. Alright, so as of recently there seems to have been some controversy about CU's donation perks. I have been told by a few people that I should remove and/or limit the use of /item, /fly, and /gamemode perks. My stance has been, and still is, to maintain the system exactly as set up by the old CU. This has worked just fine for the past almost 4 years, but this past week people have suddenly had an issue with it - enough where I feel a poll should be conducted regarding this as well as another idea that has been presented to me: a Semi-Vanilla server. Now, this idea is something I mentioned in the previous announcement as something I would not do, but this was in the concept of replacing the main server with such a server. The idea I am presenting now is to have this as a separate server entirely, likely BungeeCord-ed with the main server for easily going between the two. This server would have some basic stuff - /home, /me, CUEmotes, Residence, WorldGuard, Essentials, anticheat, and possibly a single donation rank with a few added perks (maybe) - but that's about it. Staff would have only the extra perks needed to effectively check grief and fix it, moderate, and so on, which excludes a lot of the typical stuff that can be seen as "extras", which means they can play legitimately right beside players. This idea is something that ND experimented with right before we merged with them originally, and it seemed to do well. This idea has been mentioned to me by a few people as well, and while I absolutely will never replace the primary server with this, I believe that setting it up and making it a reality would be both easy on the team and easy on our available server hardware. The poll presents various voting options for how these things should be handled, and get your guys' interests figured out. A couple things to note before we wrap up this topic though: On the 2nd question (the one regarding the perks directly and with the most choices), please PICK TWO - and ONLY two. If you do not pick two, your votes will be ignored entirely. Additionally, these votes do NOT guarantee that we will go in that direction (or not exactly specifically), this is meant to see where current user interest lies and doesn't automatically determine the exact direction we will go. Rather, the votes you make will be taken into consideration when we do decide. This doesn't mean that what the winning vote is won't happen, it just means that us (the CU Staff) ultimately reserve the choice to do what we feel is the best for the future of the community. Also, if you select "Other" for that 2nd question, make sure you give us your idea by replying! The cooldown that was mentioned in the first question was implemented today - it is 15 seconds per use of the command. More details on the update can be found here: Lastly, if you happen to be a donator of these ranks, we want your feedback especially, as everything that was suggested thus far was (mostly) from people who didn't wield these powers. We look forward to hearing your feedback, and we thank you for your interest and participation in helping make CU better!

  17. Your Favourite Quotes

    Respond to this thread with one of your favourite quotes. I'll start: “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” ― Bob Marley
  18. Nostalgia Playdate

    Today, we will be doing an all-day nostalgia playdate! We will be talking via TeamSpeak and playing on the Beta 1.7.3 server!
  19. So, just yesterday (or earlier today?) I made an announcement on Discord telling people that Factions would be removed in a week if it wasn't played. So far, I've had 0 people asking to keep it and several people asking for its removal - so that's what's happening today. After talking with @Windwhistle a bit last night, I came to the realization that having as many modes as we do may in a sense actually cause more issues. His suggestion was to remove every single gamemode except for Survival - something I am not willing to go through with (unless you guys want it), and while I find that to be very extreme, we are going to dial back our focus on minigames and whatnot and instead focus on the things that made CU great to begin with, primarily survival. Starting today, 2 modes are being removed from the server: Factions and The Arena. Let's go into more detail as to why. The biggest common reason is just that nobody touches it. If I go into any of the other 3 main gamemodes, it's clear that they are all played. From creative spawn, you can go outside and see tons of creations all over the place. Survival, too, has plenty of builds attached to the spawn itself, and more as you go further out. SkyBlock, you can see several islands from the spawn area. But when I go into the factions world, the only clear change from when it was created was a small wooden wall right on the edge of spawn: Additionally, there were only 2 factions that existed that had any members at all. The Arena also had this issue, plus the added bonus of being either outright broken.The original plan was to get a custom plugin to replace the pile of garbage one we had before, but that never happened. We hope to one day revisit the idea when we have more resources to work with (and maybe a paid dev or two), but for now it was just creating clutter. Now as a reminder, Factions can be readded - exactly as they were - if there is demand. It would take nothing more than a couple small config edits and a quick server restart to bring them both back. But, if the demand isn't there, they won't be returning. Now, for those of you with a craving for PvP, we have introduced a feature that some old CU folk should remember: /pvp. In either Survival or Skyblock, you can now do /pvp to enable or disable PVP. If you and another player want to PvP, you both just need to enable PvP. Below, you can read the full changelog for this server update (it's not that long). Be sure to give us your thoughts and feelings on these changes with a reply to the topic!
  20. 5/24/2018 MC Server Update

    An update has been applied to the MC server in order to do some housekeeping and add room for added features: + Added plugin: PvPToggle * /play (or using the Play item in the hub) no longer shows MobArena or Factions - Removed MobArena - Removed Factions - Removed Killerteddy
  21. 4/29/2018 Website Update

    Some updates have been applied to the website and more. + Added new IP: dewrito.chaoticunited.net + Added the 3 ElDewrito servers to the server box on the forums + Added server page for ElDewrito on main website + Added blocks for ElDewrito and Brink of Chaos on homepage + Updated the services list on homepage due to not being updated in a while + Added new subforum: ElDewrito + Added downloads category: ElDewrito + Added subcategories for download category ElDewrito: Maps (Forge), Game Variants, Tag Mods * Download center now allows for user uploads * Fixed incorrect alt text for server icons on the services box on the homepage - Removed Killerteddy
  22. Hey, folks! We have an exciting announcement to make! We have officially launched our ElDewrito servers! Woohoo! We are starting off with 3 servers - Forge, Grifball, and Big Team Battle. The IP's have all been posted at the bottom of this topic. We have a lot more servers planned for the future, so stay tuned for those! Additionally, we are going to be officially launching the CU Download center - along with allowing users to upload mods, game variants, Forge maps, and more. Not only will we be supporting content for ElDewrito, but also we will be allowing you guys to submit Minecraft content as well. Going forward, we hope to expand this section of the website and allow you guys to share all sorts of content. But more on that another day. For information on how to obtain ElDewrito and connect to our servers, check this handy topic. We're excited about these new servers - and for me personally, it's great to be able to finally blend my love for Halo and passion for Chaotic United. See you on the battlefield! - The Chaotic United Team
  23. Connecting to one of our Servers

    In order to start playing the game, you will need to acquire a download for the ms23 build of Halo Online. Check this post on the ElDewrito/HaloOnline subreddit for more information on how to install the game. After you've successfully installed the game, you have two ways of connecting to one of our servers: Method 1 - Server Browser (Easiest) This is a piece of cake, just click the Server Browser on the top of the menu and search for "Chaotic United". You should see something like this after a minute or so: From here, you can just click on any server, and you're in! Method 2 - Direct Connect (Easy) If the server browser ever goes offline, fails to load all the servers, or any other strange hiccup even after multiple refreshes, you can get around it entirely by using the console. Press the ~ key and you should see something like this: Yours will likely be a bit easier to see, as I am running on a 4K display - but it should look basically the same. Once you're here, get the IP of any of our servers and run the following command: Server.Connect <IP> Replace <IP> with the IP of any of our servers - for instance, to connect to our Grifball server, you'd run: Server.Connect dewrito.chaoticunited.net:11785 And that's it! You're in and ready to play! See you on the battlefield, Spartans!
  24. 7 Years Ago...

    7 years ago, Chaotic United entered the gaming world, starting with a WOW, Runescape, and MC server. As time went on, MC took over everything and the other servers faded into the past. Come 2014, CU's team went on to create Nuclear District. Later in 2014, myself and Alycat began the work here to rebuild CU. In late 2015, us and ND merged to unite as one. Come 2016, ND closed its doors - leaving CU as the only remaining group of the old Chaotic United left alive. I know what you're expecting, another topic of "we've got big plans and look how far we've come in the past year, etc." with not too much to support any of it. That is more or less what the topic is, but we're doing it a bit different this year. Admittedly, CU hasn't had a whole lot going on the past 6 months or so. That being said, within the past year some pretty huge things have happened. First of all, last June, we finally obtained the chaoticunited.com domain name - which for those of you around back in late 2014/early 2015, will remember that we actually had a little countdown timer on the sidebar counting down to the day we would obtain the domain. Little did young halo know, that timer would mean absolutely nothing. This countdown timer was made using some free online service, before I had any real knowledge of web development. As you can tell both by CU's website and forums and especially Elaztek's homepage, my skills have increased a bit since then. Our Minecraft server also had another relaunch a few months ago, which managed to increase the playerbase size a bit. Not only that, but this month has seen the most donations than we've seen the entire year prior. Still isn't a huge chunk of cash, but it's still more than we've had in a while (thanks @Faerien, @Em_Aru, Murloc, and all others who donated!). But what about the future? In the past, I've said things along the lines of "aly's getting a job", or "we have access to new technology enabling us to do x, y, and maybe even z". This won't be any of that - at least, not exactly. On May 19, I will be graduating from High School and moving up in the world to get a job and to begin pursuing my dreams of starting a game development company - Elaztek Studios. But don't think for even a minute that CU will be left behind, no way in hell. I've seen too many admins just go off to college and get jobs and just abandon this project - that's something I have sworn to never do. Chaotic United has been too wonderful and good to me. I've had too much fun and made too many memories for me to just leave it in the dust. I don't know how much time I will be able to invest, it depends on what the future holds. But one thing is certain, once I start getting income, you can bet that CU will get a lot more happening. I'll be able to invest in more servers, pay developers to create custom plugins and whatnot, and so much more. At the same time, not all of my money is going here either. I will also be investing to make Elaztek Studios happen, as I've wanted to do game development since before I even knew what Minecraft was, before I was even out of elementary school. I can't say how much will go which direction, but the goal is to have both of them be at least slightly better off than they are right now. In the more immediate future, however, we have several ElDewrito servers planned to hit all at once. You've probably noticed the huge announcements over the past couple days regarding some of the issues occurring between 343 Industries, Microsoft, and the ElDewrito team. If you haven't seen the more recent ones, just know that the game's files cannot be found on the Halo Online subreddit due to issues with Microsoft. Also, there was no DMCA or C&D, nor is the ElDewrito team permanently stopping development - only a temporary pause until further notice. So if you happen to see people continuing to believe that the project has been shut down, killed off, or permanently stopping development, call them out because too many people have absolutely no idea what they are talking about and do not read announcements. Anyways - if you check the pinned messages in the #eldewrito channel on Discord, you can find a zip that contains the game files, ready to run - courtesy of espon/wolfbitez. Currently, we have the following servers planned: Forge - Accomplished with an old Halo 3 mod that changed a custom game variant to use Forge in custom games Grifball - The classic grifball gametype, featuring maps made from people here on Chaotic United! BTB/Etc. - This server contains both BTB and other large-scale gametypes, will likely end up being purely BTB variants, however. Customs - A server with tons of crazy custom game variants - ie, Parkour, Indiana Jones, Jenga, and stuff along those lines. These Forge, Grifball, and BTB are all near completion and will likely be up and running very soon, so stay tuned! Additionally, if you have any maps you want to submit, you can upload them here. Additionally, you can suggest maps from other sources (ie, ForgeHub) if you want us to consider implementing them. The same goes for game variants an so on. Overall, while the past while has been fairly slow, we are excited for what the future holds for Chaotic United - and we hope you are too. The future is bright, and soon things will start moving to help make that actually happen.
  25. Don't mind me. Just quietly walking in and sitting in the corner of the ceiling to watch what's happening.
