World History

December 2011

World Three Spawn Building, more pictures here

World Three began with the first complete inventory and map reset. All of the players had to start again, scrabbling for resources and racing to get diamonds.

With this reset, and the recent release of Minecraft 1.0, new map features were included in this world, such as netherwart for potions, enchantments, the End, and the Dragon.

A Hero is Born

With the new month came some new Villains, and new Heroes, in particular the spandex-wearing diamond-clad CaptainCrimson. CaptainCrimson formed The Crimson Crusaders, a band of Super Heroes.

Razarex and F1Richard began their Let's Play on the server, Adventure with Rich

Since Jaycow became an administrator in November, this was his first full month helping out with the admin builds around the map. The PVP Arena, The Church of Jaycow, the Lighthouse and an Aeroplane appeared around the map, usually designated as No-PvP safe zones He successfully petitioned for the introduction of the Bookworm plugin, and created the Intercontinental HardcoreSMP Library for storing the resulting masterpieces, which included a tonne personal player diaries, offensive or funny stories, and a copy of The Raven.

An unannounced overworld city project called Mac Cross springs up, built primarily by MacgregorK.

The New Minecraft Republic stayed fairly active during World 3, while assassins and murderer groups began to spring up around the server.

Nebtown joined the server, creating their portal network, a Nether Railway, and the Restaurant at the End of the Universe.

A group of evil players joined the server, calling themselves FOAM. After a brief war with the NMR and Nebtown, FOAM were banned for x-ray.

Meanwhile, Telum12, Yttriumz, poiddragon and TrumpeterSwann join forces with Nebtown to take out one of the latest murderers, liljm0ney and his team.

The End was conquored for the very first time, and GigglesNPie slew the Dragon.

During December we began to get more people trolling the server. In order to keep ensuring that the community remained friendly the first set of Community Moderators were brought in to monitor the in-game and IRC chat and assist in banning spam bots. They were given blue names, to distinguish them from the green names of regular players, the lighter green names of donators.

A group known as the Melon Ballers made itself known with a melon-themed recruitment campaign on the subreddit, before being overtaken by a Pumpkin Invasion, courtesy of Savoie (abuuuse!).

Now acting as a force for good, Random902, xCoyote18 and GigglesNPie kill a lot of the current spawnkillers, and throw down the gauntlet to any others.

January 2012

The Bookworm plugin was installed, and Jaycow created the HCSMP Intercontinental Library to contain the works of fiction, personal journals and resulting gibberish.

January continued well, until gmxgeek found and banned several x-rayers, and one began a DDOS attack on the server, and several people in the IRC channel, including Jaycow. A short time later he stepped down as an administrator.

After the DDOS attacks subsided, Bookworm was removed due to features that could be exploited on the server.

Razarex and F1Richard continued with their Category:Let's Play, Adventure with Rich, until their murder by drplaster.

At the end of the month, the World was again to be reset, and the now-traditional End of World Party took place.
