1.14 Client Support

Posted on April 24, 2019 by TheClowner

As many have probably realised, Minecraft 1.14 came out yesterday.
ClownerCraft now supports connections with 1.14 clients, although the server is still running on 1.13.2. This means you don’t need to downgrade your game to play on ClownerCraft, but you wont be able to use the new features/items yet.

More details about when we fully update to 1.14 will be released once we have a better idea of what things get broken.


Minecraft 1.14

Posted on April 22, 2019 by TheClowner

Hi all,
The new update is almost upon us… and again, we have to share a few things we’re planning to do around this update. But first, the usual disclaimer:

We wont be able to update for a fair amount of time after the official release, we may have to wait for a lot of plugins to update and all. Until the update is actually released we will not know how long it will be for us to update. Please be patient. 

And now on to the more interesting bit:

  • Survival and Creative’s building worlds will not be reset.
  • Survival’s Explore, Nether and End will be regenerated.
  • New items will be added to the Survival server shop, and tokenshop.
  • PureSurvival will have a full world reset.
  • We hope to launch our new hub and relaunch gladiator alongside the 1.14 update.

Please share your thoughts with us in the #suggestions-feedback channel on our discord server.


Server Update – 1 April

Posted on April 1, 2019 by TheClowner

 

Hey all,
Just a couple quick updates for you all:

  • VIP and VIP+ members can now use colour and format codes on signs (in Survival, Creative and PureSurvival).
  • Our ranks page, and the store have had the list of perks for paid ranks updated.
  • Permissions for the Armour Stand Editor have been corrected. It should now work fine for VIP and VIP+ members only.

Let there be noise!

Hey all, a quick update to VIP for you:

We have introduced a music player to survival for VIP and VIP players! And it plays a small selection of custom songs. You can open it with /music

There’s only 6 choices for now, but we may add more in the future. This is more of a trial run, so please share your feedback with us in our discord server. We will roll this new feature out to other servers in the near future.

Enjoy!


Server Update 19/1/2019

Posted on by TheClowner

Hey all, Just a few quick changes to note today:

  • /pet has been fixed for Supporter, VIP and VIP+ on Survival
  • Several missing custom maps from Survival’s spawn have been fixed.
  • Issues with Survival’s rent-able shops should now be resolved
  • /ranks guide, /ranks joint and /ranks skip have all now been finished, making it much easier to learn how our rankup system works!

We are also still of course working on the new hub, along with a handful of other projects, so watch this space for new things.


More Coming Soon™

Just to prove that we are actually making progress on the new hub and not just getting distracted playing cookie clicker, 2048 or whatever… have some more screenshots


Christmas Updates

Posted on December 24, 2018 by TheClowner

First off, we’d like to wish everyone playing a Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, or whatever your preferred greeting is!

We’re very thankful for all the support you all show us, and it’s wonderful to still see a strong community after over 5 years of running a server!

Naturally, over Christmas a lot of our team will be busy visiting family, and generally doing IRL things – so please be prepared for slightly longer wait times on reported rankups and other tickets, we will endeavor to get to them as soon as possible. Just please be patient with us.

And following on from that, I have some things to announce:

Firstly, after Christmas everything on our store will be on sale, with a 50% discount on everything, and 65% off VIP+! This sale will run until the end of January, so theres plenty of time to grab a good deal and get yourself (or gift a friend) a VIP rank or a set of decorative player heads!

Secondly, we can finally announce that Gladiator will return early in the new year! With new arenas, new waves, new bosses. It’s gonna be all fancy! More accurate launch date will follow as soon as possible.

And finally. The rather long awaited, and frankly overdue, new hub will be launching early next year! We’ve been hard at work over the last few weeks and we’re finally getting towards a point where we will actually finish our new hub! Isn’t that amazing, we’re actually finishing a project! And of course, this is down to the massive amount of work we’ve had from our build team.
For those who didn’t work it out, the screenshots posted recently were of the new hub, so you have a good idea of what exactly you’ll get to explore soon. And theres plenty of hidden secrets for you to go out and find!

Isn’t that all exciting eh?


Coming Soon™ Again.

Posted on December 19, 2018 by TheClowner

Hey All
It’s that time again where I’m gonna start sharing random screenshots with no context.

These are all, in some way, “coming soon™” to the ClownerCraft network.
No promises on when, or any extra details for now. Watch this space 😛

Can’t wait to see all the speculation on our Discord and Forums!


Server Update: 6/12/18 (+ Christmas Contest Announcement)

Posted on December 9, 2018 by TheClowner

Hey all,

We’ve finally had some time to go and work through fixing some bits and updating stuff, so among a lot of updates and fixes to backend bits – heres some major fixes and changes:

  • /spawner has now been fixed [Survival]
  • End Rods have been added to /kit glow [Survival]
  • The ender dragon is no longer stuck, so can be re-spawned and fought again. [Survival]
  • Ranks should no longer vanish after name changes. (We’re still trying to verify that this is fixed) [All Servers]
  • /sortc /sorti are now available for Supporter, VIP and VIP+  [PureSurvival]

On top of that, we are thrilled to announce this years Christmas contest!

This year, we’ve gone for a theme of “Gingerbread Houses” – and it’s also a team-contest!

You’ll be able to claim plots from Monday 10th December (hopefully). More details to follow soon!

As always, if you do encounter issues on the server – please make sure you report them to us, either with /report ingame, on our forums, or in the #suggestions-feedback channel on discord. We’ll do our best to get everything running smoothly.


Plots. The contest kind and the creative kind. And more.

Posted on September 29, 2018 by TheClowner

Today’s one of those exciting days; we have a bunch of things to announce!

First of all, thank you all for your patience with us as we’ve been slowly working through things. We still have a fair amount on our plate to deal with but we are reading your feedback and noting down things that need looking at – it may just take a little longer than we’d like.

And now, what a lot of you have been waiting for. As of now, ClownerCraft’s Creative server is back online, now on 1.13.1.
Naturally, as it’s only just been updated it’s quite possible theres little things we’ve missed and so if you do find something that doesn’t work please report it to us either with /report or in the #suggestions-feedback channel on our discord.

PureSurvival will follow very soon.

And the other things:
We’re doing contests again, starting with an Elven Theme. You can show off your building talent and win tokens next weekend  (Contest runs Friday 5th to Sunday 7th October). Please do make sure you claim your place in the contest now, by heading over to /contest

There will be more future contests put up on the calendar page of our website in the coming days.

And finally… We will be launching a new thing at the end of October. Something we’ve been working on for some time may finally be opened for everyone to enjoy. But we’ll keep things a little secret for now.
