Hello everybody!

If you have played towny, you will probably have noticed that the auction plugin we currently use has several issues, which will probably never be fixed (the latest officially supported version of MC was 1.10). Some of those issues are:
  • No support for 1.13 items
  • If you are using the “wrong” version of MC, you cannot see the items in chat
  • People are able to bypass the auction queue
  • It can be very spammy in chat

For this reason we will replace our current plugin with "Crazy Auctions," which combines classic auctions, that players can bid on, with an auction house, where you can sell items for a price of your choice.

Most of the plugin’s functions can be accessed through one central GUI, which can be opened with /ah.

It lists all items that are currently for sale, allows you to filter them, to collect items from expired sales, etc. You will see the price and details of the respective item by hovering over it and you can purchase it by clicking it.

To set up items for sale, use /ah sell [price] [amount]. Other players have then 24 hours to buy them. How many items you can have for sale at the same time is depending on your rank:
  • Brigand: 1
  • Paladin: 2
  • Conqueror: 3
  • Legend: 4
  • Benefactor: 4
If you want to start an auction that people can bid on, use /ah bid [price] [amount], you will need at least the Guardian rank. In the following three minutes, everybody will be able to bid on this item through the /ah GUI (klick the slime ball to view the items you can bid on). Hovering over the item will display its properties, the current price, highest bidder and remaining time:

In opposite to the old auction plugin, it will not be possible anymore to sell more than 64 at the same time. To make up for this, we will add some of the items that are often sold in large quantities (e.g. cooked potatoes and cooked cod) to /sell, while adjusting the job reward at the same time.

We will switch to the new plugin on Sunday, July 21st, 2019. If you have any feedback or questions regarding this change, feel free to leave a reply in this thread.

Best of luck,

Hello Players,

After more than two years of using the current hardware to host Shadow Kingdom, we have decided that we will be upgrading the servers. There are many reasons why we have planned this, but the most notable reasons are larger storage limits and more capable CPUs to host our network. Some of our servers such as Towny v3.0 are far too intensive for the hardware we're hosting it on, and we hope that with this drastic improvement in hosting power, we will see much better performance on that server.
This upgrade is also important for future updates that we have planned to release in the coming months. :eyes:

The downtime will last from 3PM EST to 11PM EST on Wednesday, May 29th, 2019. During this time, we will be moving everything, including databases, backups, the Minecraft servers, and more to the new hardware. It is our hope that everyone will notice significant performance gains after this has been completed.

If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to comment below!

Note: While the Minecraft network is offline on Wednesday, we encourage all users to join our Discord server to stay in the loop! We will be providing live updates as the transfer progresses.

Looking forward!
