Found 9 results

  1. Hey, folks! Since our December survey has been concluded, we are going to go over the results now. In total, 9 users participated in this survey. Thanks to all of you! If you submitted a survey and did not get a code, contact me and I will get your code. Survey Responses First off, let's talk about what modes you guys want to see. The top picks were Survival, Creative, SkyBlock, and Parkour. The top 4 picks are all core modes of CU, and have been present for a while now. Behind those, RPG, SkyWars, and MobArena were voted for. RPG is currently a project we have going on behind the scenes, and has been mentioned a few times before. We will keep you guys updated as that starts to come together. MobArena also made it in at the last minute for MC. SkyWars is something we've wanted to do for a while, but sadly we are having some trouble finding a proper plugin for it. That being said, we will keep you guys posted and we will continue to look into these. Of these, the big winners were mcMMO, Jobs, and random loot chests. So far, mcMMO and Jobs were both in, but loot chests weren't able to make it in (yet). We have some ideas, so stay tuned for that! Quests and /warp event both scored fairly well, both of these being ideas we want to explore in the future. Quests is an uncertain one due to an RPG server basically taking that role, but as with the chests - we have some ideas. /warp event is basically where periodically, the staff will host an event within the server (mostly in Survival) with some kind of award tied to it. These were common on old CU, but have fallen out of favor since 2014. We may end up looking into these however. Vanilla survival and an Auction house were both not really wanted (among those who voted). The overwhelming winner in this scenario was another modern MC server, though I think in retrospect I should have added a "no more servers" option. Followed closely behind was a modded server, with everything else falling in line behind that. We already have both of these, which seems to mirror the current server structure anyhow. Not much else on that. We got some fairly positive feedback on our Beta 1.7.3 server. Of those of you who played it, most of you rated it a 3 and a couple of you gave it a 5/5. A fair chunk of you didn't really vote on this (or just had no real opinion of it) due to not playing, but really, the point of that server isn't to bring in huge mountains of people anyways. Lots of love for Brink of Chaos! Most of you voted a 4 or a 5, but one of you voted 2 . I suspect this is largely due to the steep performance requirements of the pack, but I can't say for sure. Whoever voted for that, if I am incorrect with my assumption, do let me know why it is you voted the way you did! Generally, we had positive opinions on our main server. A lot of you voted 4 or 5, with a few of you giving it a 3. Honestly, for a server that was pre-relaunch, I was expecting worse. Good to see a lot of you guys are enjoying it! Now for the good stuff. This is an interesting one. Based on the chart above, you would think that TTT would be the winner. However, we held a similar poll on Discord of just this question, and we were met with different results. As you can see, CS:GO was actually the winner in this scenario, with TTT being at the very bottom. However, looking back at the original chart again, we also notice that CS:GO is split across 2 options, which if combined result in a 5 - which is above TTT. That being said, the results there are much closer than the total annihilation that CS:GO did to all the others on the Discord poll. In either case, we do actually have a CS:GO server now. You may recall back when the failed merge occurred, we had a CS:GO, ARK, and a couple other servers. When Elaztek started up, those servers got moved over to Elaztek. The CS:GO server as of now is basically a shared server between the two, which are on much better terms nowadays. You can play by connecting to The 3 big winners of this were story-driven games, puzzle games, and games that bring you to their knees with absurd difficulty. Behind that came power fantasies, then MMORPG's, and then everything else. The reason we asked this will become clearer as time goes on. You'll see. I had to edit this graph in Photoshop, because Google Forms decided to shove it into multiple pages - hence the 2nd page thing beneath the actual votes. The ones you see are the ones on the graph. Most of you picked that it didn't apply, or "I still play". Two of these are clearly trolls, so let's ignore those. Some said that you didn't have time to play games anymore - the sad truth. Life is that big thing that comes in the way of your game time and some people just don't have the time to play MC and invest hours and hours into building things anymore. Others said that they just got bored of Minecraft itself - and sadly, there isn't a whole lot we can do in this case either. If you are bored of MC itself, the core game, all we can do is offer other services and do different things to encourage you to remain within the community (which are continuing to make an effort to do). Others of you voted that you were just embarrassed to play a "kids" game. I understand feeling that way, but let me offer a thought - I am 18, many of our players are 16 and several are in their 20's. Other large servers are run by adults or at the very least people with mental maturity. On top of that, our community is very loose when it comes to adhering to any sort of PG-13 nonsense. So don't be embarrassed! If you want to play MC, don't let the opinions of others prevent you from doing that. For those of you who have seemed to find another server, the top reason was a variety in gamemodes. Behind that, it was a tie between there being more to do, someone who has some beef with the CU community for being "cancerous", and someone who seems to not be very fond of Alycat. We are always working on improving our selection of gamemodes - which, thus, leads to there being more to do. The issues with the community and with Aly, unfortunately, aren't issues that can exactly be "fixed". So I'm sorry that those of you who picked that feel that way. Not gonna lie, not a lot of useful stuff here. Ignoring the trolly/uncreative/funny stuff, there is one real suggestion among this. Map resets every 7 months - nice that you picked up on my love for the number 7, but even that can't really convince me of this. Our build team isn't exactly huge, and creating an entirely new set of spawns every 7 months just gets exhausting and just isn't feasible. Prizes for being on top of leaderboards is an interesting one, I like this. Parkour is something we already have - however we may do some "one time" maps for /warp event. Not sure what trivia is, nor do I know what you mean by "make factions better". Whoever suggested this, I would appreciate if you elaborated a bit, I am intrigued by what you may have in mind. Also, can I just ask: who in the world just put "Yes". You said yes, you had ideas - but you seem to have forgotten what the ideas are. ._. Anyways, I want to give a huge thank you to all of you who participated in the survey! While some of the feedback make take time to implement, it is never forgotten and it is always taken into consideration when we discuss what we want to do to expand and improve Chaotic United. Have a great day everyone! And remember to check out our MC server if you haven't for a while. We just relaunched at the very end of 2017 and so far 2018 has been incredible! We are continuing to expand and improve MC with each passing day. Also I had to re-do this entire post because somehow I managed to send the "back" command to my browser with some kind of obscure key combo or something, so that sucked. Anyways, have a good day everyone! - The Chaotic United Team
  2. Hey everybody. The time has come. Chaotic United has relaunched! Let's go over some of the big changes! No? Well, for those of you who have no interest in reading the post, check the info directly below. Below that is the actual post. MC.CHAOTICUNITED.NET 1.12.x Backwards compatiability still works, so you can still play on anything from 1.4.7 to 1.12.2, though it is NOT recommended. NEW GAMEMODES We have introduced MobArena! After being on the request list for a good while, we finally managed to introduce MobArena. To start off, we have 3 maps and we plan to expand and add more as time goes on. The first map is called Heat, a nether-themed map built by myself along with some help from @*-=(Jayden)=-*. The second map is called Ruin, which is a map built off the first CU revival survival spawn (2014) made by @AimWicked. The third map is a modified version of the survival spawn area from CU back in Beta 1.7.3 (2011, not our current beta 1.7.3 server). Additionally, we have introduced The Arena - a PvP-focused gamemode. Like MobArena, we have 3 maps to start with and we will be introducing more maps as time goes on. The first map is called Beaver Creek, which if you couldn't tell, is a map from Halo: Combat Evolved and Halo 2 remade in Minecraft. It was built outside of CU and the original map can be found here. The second map is called Tomb, which is a map from MCUniverse that was formerly only referred to as Quake. It is a small map and is designed for close-quarters encounters. The third map is called Labrynth, which is derived from an old thing that @alycat built a long time ago, but better spaced out and better adapted for arena gameplay. The Arena is not complete. We plan to expand upon this mode as time goes on. We plan to introduce SurvivalGames, SkyWars, and other lesser-known modes, some of which will be exclusive to CU. PARKOUR UPDATES Our parkour plugin, NDParkour, has recieved some updates as well as having new maps added. The plugin itself now stores each player's checkpoints and remembers them, and will reject unlocking the same checkpoint twice. This was particularly an issue on larger, vertical maps that just went up and up. If you were to fall down and land on an older checkpoint, you were suddenly set back a huge margin. That will no longer happen anymore. Additionally, there is now an Easy, Normal, and Hard mode. Normal mode is how the plugin has operated in the past. Easy mode operates by allowing you to set a checkpoint at any location, but cuts your award down to 25% (1/4 or 0.25x, however you want to format it). Hard mode gives you 10x the award you normally would, but disables checkpoints entirely. In addition to the various changes that have been made to the plugin, we have a few new maps. You guessed it, 3 new maps. The first one is Oasis, a parkour map set within a mountain wall with a shallow pond of water. It was built by myself with the actual parkour layout being made by @*-=(Jayden)=-*. The second one is called Sandstorm, which is set within a desert. Once again, the main parkour layout was built by @*-=(Jayden)=-* with the map styled and prettified by me. The third map is a simpler map, called EndParkour, which has an End-style theme. It has a strange uniformity to it.You guessed it. @*-=(Jayden)=-* made the core map, with the map prettified by me. Additionally, an older map now known as MagmaParkour has finally been expanded upon. Instead of 3 short layers, the original vision for the course has been realized and it is a crazy tall course. It's also worth a fair chunk of cash, so keep that in mind too. WEBSITE UPDATES Our website has recieved a facelift. We wanted to keep it still fairly similar to the previous website and keep it familiar, but at the same time bring a noticeable facelift. You will notice some new animations as well as some updated page designs. The timeline page looks a lot better than ever before, and most of the website now works better on mobile. Mobile navigation is now a separate menu instead of an awkward emulation of the main navigation menu. The helpcenter index looks much better and now has individual icons for each page. Additionally, the icons are more obviously links. FORUMS UPDATES We have added some new features to the public on our forums. We are introducing Blogs for public use! As a regular user, you are able to create blogs and add entries to them as you desire. In the past we have been using Blogs internally for our update changelog. Now, you can manage your own, too! Additionally, we are now launching our Download center! Our vision for the download center is to foster an environment for content creators, inside and outside of Minecraft, to share their content and, eventually, be able to monetize them if desired. We are still working out the kinks in this system, and we will make an announcement later when we have more definite figures on it. THE FUTURE This update is not the final stage of the server. Now that we've finally launched, we will be working to test things better with you guys and expanding the content further, and here soon we will start our advertising campaign. All of us have been working pretty hard (the admins especially) and so we will be taking a little bit of a rest break in between now and then. We've worked very hard to help create a truly awesome experience, and to finally begin to push to a new frontier in the future of Chaotic United. Lastly, for those of you who submitted survey results thus far, you will be sent your crate key codes via Discord, or if that fails, via forums. We will be posting survey results soon! That's all for now folks. We want to thank all of you for sticking with us this far, and we hope you can stick with us going forward into the future.

  3. Hey everyone! We are making some progress with the MC relaunch and we want to share it with you thus far. So far, most of the work completed has to do with SurvivalGames and Arena builds. Without giving away too much, here is the latest map that has been completed - Corrupsula. This map has been in the works for months. It was started by Arlem/Windwhistle as a SG map that I wanted him to build. He got the center isle built but ultimately the rest came down to CU's build team. Have a look: More screenshots We have more maps, but we don't want to reveal everything do we? Gotta have something to discover! Additionally, we have two new staff members! @Nish and @rookie_11! Both are helpers, give them a warm welcome to the CU Staff team! We are still continuing to have open positions for staff to compensate for some of our staff going off to college as well as people being slammed with schoolwork. Hit the button below if you want to apply! Apply for a Staff Position If you have any questions or concerns, or anything else to say regarding the future of CU, feel free to speak up! We love hearing from and talking to you guys and getting your view on things.
  4. The Relaunch

    Hey everyone! As mentioned in this topic, we have been working hard to relaunch CU once again. The general plan has been to put all future server features aside for this relaunch. Any new gamemodes, improvements, and so on would go into this relaunch of CU. With one main caveat: The existing CU server would receive minimal support in terms of bug fixes (except for critical ones), no new gamemodes, and so on. Many modes have been suggested. SkyWars, GrandTheftWool, TheRedCore, and so on. So, I want to get your guys' feedback. I want to present an alternative progress plan for this relaunch. There are currently two options: 1. We continue to stock all features for the Relaunch in order to create a perfectly polished, tested, and fleshed out experience. 2. The Relaunch is effectively cancelled, and the features planned for it will be worked on, developed, and made live as soon as they are available on the main server. "But wait, Mr. Halo! Are there any caveats to number 2? Because wow it sounds like the obvious choice!" Yes there are. Let's go over all the pros/cons of these two options. Option 1: Pros: Better ability to test, work on, and finish the server More flexibility for potentially "crippling" bugs to occur without risk to existing server data Better ability to create a fully polished and continuous server experience Cons: Main server will continue to not get as much focus as work is done for the relaunch Option 2: Pros: Main server will continue to get main focus New bugs will be fixed sooner rather than later Features will be available as soon as they are playable Cons: More server restarts due to broken/faulty configurations and plugins Extreme lack of polish and continuity across the server experience Potential risk to existing server data So, lets elaborate on a couple of these points. How is there any risk to server data at the hand of this development? To put as simply as possible: When we develop new server features, there is a large testing process, and typically not a large pool of testers. Some plugins that are added (such as 'hub items' for instance) that need to mess with player's inventory data will always create some level of risk of player's inventory data. What if it applies the specific hub items across the entire server, and people lose the items that are in specific slots? What if their entire inventory is lost upon an issue with a minigame? These are just a few examples - and these are just limited to player inventory data. These are risks that always have to be considered and we must always be extremely careful when developing new modes in realtime on the main server - this is partially why there has been a lack of gamemodes over the years - every time we try to implement it, it doesn't work properly, and we just toss it out in order to prevent server problems for the players we have. By keeping everything on a seperate relaunch server, these concerns are null and void. There is no data to preserve as its all reset anyways. "Okay then, so Mr. Halo, what's the point of this post if you're just going to make a case for the decision you've made?" The point is this: some of you guys may be content with the server as it is, and may not care that new features be developed all the time. You may not care about the occasional bug or two, as they are minor annoyances at most. You may prefer a more stable experience rather than new features being added the instant they're ready to go. Or, maybe you hate that idea. Maybe you'd rather have these features immediately and don't care about a risk to your inventories or random and potentially frequent server restarts. The point of this topic is for me to give you guys the chance to tell me. The point of this topic is for you guys to tell me what you think. If you really want the relaunch called off and the features to be developed on the main server, and you don't want to wait months for the server to be finished (still no set date, sorry folks). Maybe you're fine with it. I have no way of knowing, and I figured I should at the very least present the opportunity to let you guys give your feedback on the matter. If the majority of you would rather have things released as a bulk update (the relaunch), then we will do it as planned. If you prefer that these features be added as soon as possible, we can do that too. The choice is yours.
  5. Hello members of Chaotic United! If you have been with us recently (before ND closed down) you know that we took our MC server offline to do some work, as seen by this post. We didn't say a whole lot as to what was being done to the server. Today, Chaotic United is officially relaunching! Let's get right into the updates. Website The website has seen a good number of changes recently. First of all, there is a new theme selector. We have done some minor edits and facelifts to the old visual styles to bring them more up to date and make it feel more like Chaotic United. In addition to that, we have a theme designed to replicate the visual appearance of Nuclear District's website. For those that prefer the older and somewhat broken themes, they are available under a tab titled 'Classic Themes'. The old theme options are also still available, however due to the way they tend to cause noticeable visual errors they have been moved into a legacy tab. You can still poke with them if you desire but please keep in mind that the website from here on out will not be designed with those options in mind (and frankly have never been designed with them in mind to begin with). In addition to the look and feel of the site, we have some new pages! First off, the Forums tab has been renamed to 'Community' and is now a dropdown. Within it is the old forums link and a new Twitch Feeds page, also inspired by Nuclear District's website. Any Twitch streams that you guys post in the Streams forum that are continuously active, or any Streams we think you should take a look at will be added to that page. Additionally we have an About page that serves as a basic information page and also replaces the old Staff pages. The old staff pages have been moved into a 'Legacy' tab for those who wish to view them, however they will no longer be updated. With a similar layout and design, a Veterans page has been added that memorializes old legends of CU and the staff at ND. Lastly, a new Credits page has been added that has various credits of all the people or groups that had a hand in CU's history, as well as people who have contributed to the current iteration of CU Minecraft.. Minecraft The MC server is of course the main reason you guys are here. Let's get right into it. The most immediate change is that we have finally updated past 1.8! We are officially on 1.10! One bug that has been noted, you should not use 1.10.2 (1.10.1 is untested) as it causes a bug with our anti-cheat plugin and walking on certain blocks will cause it to think you are no-clipping. To prevent the bug, please use base 1.10. In terms of gamemodes, we are launching with Creative, Survival, and SkyBlock. We have a PvP focused gamemode in the works, but we decided to work with it post-launch as to get the server online sooner rather than later. Every single world has been given a brand new spawn. Some things are inspired from past creations, but this time around the builds themselves are brand new. For quite some time, we have been reusing pieces of old spawns or entire old spawns with some sloppy worldedit block filters. Ultimately, it was kind of neat and nostalgic at the same time, but for this relaunch we really wanted to give CU a fresh start, a clean slate from the mess of a server that existed in 2014-2015. Introducing: CraftBook! Some of you might not have a clue what this is. Those of you who do know what it is, are probably excited. It allows for a heap of new changes and tweaks to the game to expand it. Custom crafting recipes, gates, doors, bridges, and so much more. Some of the mechanics are only allowed in survival, and will show a 'You don't have permission to use this mechanic' message in other gametypes. As per before, we will continue to expand the MC server as time goes on and as new features are requested. Lastly, if you have yet to do so, you are invited to the Chaotic United discord server! If you are from ND or wish to keep in touch with original CU members that are not around anymore, check out NARA. Happy Minecrafting, The Chaotic United Team
  6. Hey everyone! Today I bring forth something that we are considering internally, which is switching gears and making our main MC server a modpack server. This post is simple, I want to know how you guys feel about it. Please know that this will be a custom modpack tailored to our needs and will not be a standard pack. The pack will be obtainable via the Technic Launcher. So, without further delay, vote away!
  7. New Default Forum Theme

    Hello everyone! We have made a quick switch to a new default forum skin. We have chosen this one in favor of the earlier new skin due to a much cleaner and smoother look and feel. For those of you who preferred the earlier theme, don't fret! The old skins are still available, retitled as Dawn - Light and Dawn - Dark. Additionally, we have reintroduced Chaotic Blue into the forums as well. You may remember it from 2012 CU, or you may also recall the Red version that ND had back in the day known as Nostalgia. Both are now implemented, and Nostalgia is leaving Beta and will now be considered a complete theme. If you find any bugs or hiccups feel free to mention them!
  8. Hello everyone! Another community update! First up, NuclearDistrict has closed its TeamSpeak server. This is no surprise however, as ND announced their closure a short while ago. If you have no idea what I am talking about, see these topics: Topic 1 Topic 2. Fortunately, we had also been expecting it. A new TeamSpeak server is now online, and you can connect to it by using any CU-owned TeamSpeak IP's, the main one being It is effectively a 1:1 recreation of the ND TS server. Secondly, we are testing out a new feature that will be used across all CU websites, CometChat! This was used in the very early days of Chaotic United, and now it may be brought back. You can test it by checking this page: The way the page works is that it shows the CometChat bar (look on the bottom of the page) and uses an IFrame to show the forums. For those unaware, an IFrame is a sort of window into another page, and it can be used to browse the page as well. It can also be used to create infinite loops, but it can crash your browser. So don't try it. When using the page you will notice some strange things such as the page having a noticeable white border around it, and there being multiple scroll bars. This is simply because of the way an IFrame works, and it cannot be overcome. In a final implementation the CometChat bar would just be placed on a normal page without the other hiccups you see. Leave your thoughts on it as a reply to this topic, if reactions are positive then it will be integrated to the rest of the site/forums. Otherwise, it just won't be. Lastly, let's talk about the Minecrat server. We do still have some progress yet to be done, but it mostly comes down to building new spawns. But the relaunch is coming much closer and things are finally starting to fit together. Until then, feast your eyes on some screenshots!
  9. Hello fellow members of Chaotic United and Nuclear District. A very sad and regretful event is now causing us to return here. Today, the admins at Nuclear District announced the end of ND. Services will be shutting down, and eventually the forums with it. While the spark of ND's admins has dwindled, our spark has not. While Nuclear District will be ending, Chaotic United will continue with our endeavours. As per the agreement with ND admins, the entirety of Nuclear District's forum threads will be moved here (though it may be under a generic user account). For those who haven't seen the ND topic yet: Some forums may be read only, and that means we haven't gotten to them yet. There may also be a few hiccups and missing features as we upgrade to IPB4. Additionally, any skins available on ND will also be available here. Remember, even with ND closing, we will always remain United.
