Welcome to the MC.Sparkade.net Online Store!
Hey guys, been a bit since we last updated you and we wanted to take a second to talk about our new Friends List plugin called FriendCraft that we have running on our server! We're really excited to say this is only one part of the Friend List plugin that we're ready to show off right now. We have big plans and plenty of surprises in store!
When you log on, type "/fc" and check out the commands you can use. "/fc add (player name)" will add anyone on the server to your friends list. "/fc sidebar on" will show your list on the side of your screen, with online and offline players. "/fc list" will put your entire friends list in the chat for you to view, and "/fc private" will only allow players on your list to message you!
We're really excited to roll out some new features in the coming days, so stay tuned and have fun on mc.sparkade.net!
Hi all, I wanted to take a second to explain the reason behind the server being down almost a full day. We were experiencing unplayable lag with TP commands, as well as loading in servers. We found that the Proxy company we use had some issues and needed to re-configure the entire Proxy. Almost a full day later, they still don't have it up. To be perfectly clear, our server could be live right now with 100% no issues in lag or performance...until someone DDoS attacks it and knocks it offline. It's not the Proxy company'as fault either, as they have to wait for the company supplying them with equipment to help reload everything.
We know its frustrating, trust me, Sonja and I can't record or stream when the server is down. Be patient with us, we'll hit you all with a big discount code, and hopefully by today it'll all be resolved!
The BETA launch for Survival is going on now! Any player with the Member rank or above is welcome to come on and play with us on the server. We've included a post on Reddit with everything you need to know about our survival mode! Plugins, commands, and tips on how to get started can be found HERE!
Happy Cinco de Mayo! We're finally going to be opening up Survival for BETA testing! Starting tomorrow, there will be a 3 day BETA for players with a Member rank or higher. This will let you hop in the new Survival server and get a chance to help us fix any issues before we go live! Nothing will be reset, just enjoy the perks of being a supporter of the server :)
In other news, you guys have sent a bunch of great ideas for plugins and server additions in our Subreddit! Remember that's the best place to have your custom map, server video, or idea seen! Just CLICK HERE!
We've got some big changes in the works and we thought you'd like to have a say in them! We noticed that while PvP is awesome, KitPvP doesn't get a ton of love. With the 1v1 plugin in the works, we've decided to replace KitPvP with Survival!
We want you, the player, to let us know what features and plugins you'd like to see on the Survival server to make it a thoroughly enjoyable experience for anyone! Hop on over to our subreddit post and leave your own suggestions, or vote on other ideas! CLICK HERE!
We're happy to announce that until MONDAY, APRIL 21st, we'll be having a 15% off code for Easter! Use "BUNNY" to save some dolla dolla bills! On top of that, we're hiding Easter Eggs around random places in each game server. Find the eggs, get huge discounts up to 50% off everything in the store. They'll be limited, so make sure you grab them soon! Watch our twitter @SparkadeMC to check for the start of the hunt! Enjoy your weekend :D!
We're looking to spotlight some player-made videos and builds. If you've made a cool video for the server that you'd like us to put on our website, or if you've built something you're particularly proud of, tweet it to @SparkadeMC!
We, the Sparkade team, have been working our pixels off tweaking the server, the website and our internal tools. Some of those changes are obvious, some less so, but all of them have been important. We know there's still a lot of work to do to make the server perfect, and we thank you for your patience while we get there.
One of those changes is this very news post. We're going to be making an active effort in keeping you, the community, up to date with what we're up to. Keep an eye out here for details on what we've changed and what we've got planned for the future.
Another major change has been the rules. The original rule-set was laid out in order to support an early version of the server. However, with a rapidly expanding player base, we've found we needed to change things up a bit. Some rules have been relaxed or removed completely, some have been added or increased. I'd like to suggest that you take a look at the full breakdown here.
I'd like to take a moment to remind everyone that feedback is always, always welcomed. Please tweet your ideas to us at @SparkadeMC, and I guarantee the team will review and consider it.
I don't want to ramble on too long, so I'll cut this post here for now. Thanks again for flying with Sparkade! -Dan
