Skyloft will be closed for approximately 1 week starting on May 7th, 2015 so that the town plots can be renumbered. During the town closure, NO CHANGES to ownerships, memberships, or builds/items on plots will be made, I will just be fiddling with the number identification (sl###) of the plots. Please use this 1 week notice to grab anything from your plot that you will need while it is closed since you will not be able to access the town after May 7th for one-ish week. It is my hope to have Skyloft renumbered and reopened as quickly as possible so keep your eye on this thread Skyloft residents~
That's right, folks! Featuring large plots, a pastel colour scheme and an abundance of Katherinesflowers, Laketown is back and it's cuter than ever.
A small lakeside village in the midst of an overgrown forest, Laketown is graced by legends of friendly sea monsters and mysterious fairies. Locals there enjoy fishing, picking flowers, and a nice bowl of soup.
After unexpected delays due to ninjas attempting to invade Blackguard Bay (that sounds so much better than I've been sick... ), the contest judging is complete and we have our winners.
First let me say that all the entries were very impressive and I was delighted with the quality of builds that were entered. We had ten participants and the judging was close and tough. Eight judges weighed in on each entry with a possible total score of fifty each, and then the scores were totaled and averaged out. The three highest were our winners! If you get a chance, please be sure to go check out all the entries in creative, they clearly worked very hard on them!
I'd like to thank my fellow judges for their assistance in picking the winners: Scribble, Socks, Kelseypolo, Qlick, Orange, ShadedRaven and Cogway!
Secondly, I'd like to thank all the players who entered the contest, in the order which their entries were submitted: Plarby, tacky998,...
So, after more testing and evaluation, we've found another candidate as a replacement for Essentials. The good news is, this one is far more comprehensive, and was actually built as a "response" to the Essentials Suite - RoyalCommands!
This plugin basically mirrors almost all of the functions of Essentials, and then on top of that adds a bunch of new tools and fun bits to use. We're hoping that it will prove to be an adequate replacement for Essentials, at least for the time being. Testing will be happening on the test server for a period of time, probably just a few days, and then we'll release more information on what will change in the context of your day-to-day interactions with the server and what you'll need to record.
As part of a preliminary evaluation of the plugin's capabilities, we expect that homes will be lost, so you might want to take this time to either find a warp around you that's near your home, move one of your own warps, or make some kind of other...
Our Forums, Twitter, Tumblr, Steam, YouTube, ect., will all still be up. Why not check out some of that stuff? Maybe read a book? Finally clean the last of that fuzz out from between your toes? Or, if you live in the US, sleep? The server will be back when they're done with their maintenance!
Due to time zones being confusing, the maintenance actually starts one hour from this posting!
