Introducing: CU Semi-Vanilla!

1 post in this topic

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

Spoiler

/nick - Change your nickname (with full formatting/color permissions!)

/me - Share your feelings with /me emote!

/auras - Access to all auras from Donator up to Nuclear
/sethome - Up to 15 sethomes
/tptoggle - Disallow people requesting to teleport to you!
/hat - Wear any item or block on your head!
/back - Use /back to return to your last location or death point!
/ci - Clear your inventory!
/skull - Get the head of any player!
Chat Upgrade - Use colors and formatting in chat!

 

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!
