General Info / Demotion: BlaaaazMC & Blarno
« on: March 15, 2014, 04:03:44 AM »
Today, Exi and myself figured out how both BlaaaazMC and Blarno cheated massive amounts of items into the survival world.

As a result, it has been decided both players have gotten a permanent demote from the KaiseCraft staff, and their ranks have been brought back to citizen.

We want to state clearly that anyone cooperating with cheaters is also considered a cheater. When seeing something that doesn’t seem right, report this immediately to the highest ranked staff. Also glitches should be reported!

Proof is to be found in the spoiler underneath.

PS) All cheated items have been removed from the game.

Accepted Staff / Staff application : Deimos
« on: November 15, 2013, 06:39:47 PM »
Dear forum,

After having played for over 4 months on this server, and having spoken to lots of fellow players, I believe the time is ripe for me to apply for a staff position on this server. In the following sections, I’ll try to explain as clearly as possible my motives for doing so, and why I believe to be an asset to KaiseCraft’s staff.

My real name is Nicolas B. I’m a 20 year old student, living in the cold and rainy Belgium. My mother language is Dutch (Flemish in fact), but I’m also a fluent English and French speaker, I have basic notions of German. My subject of study is Physics & Astronomy and I’m currently in my 3th year of University. This means school is actually my ‘full time job’. I try to do as much side-activities as possible though, sports, going out with friends and playing some Minecraft from time to time.

In Minecraft, my most frequent activity is playing on the Survival world. Communicating with other factions is something I really enjoy doing, as well as building my base, constantly trying to make it better. Apart from survival I play on my own creative world in which I build complex redstone networks that could be an asset to the Survival game, especially automatic systems.  My basic knowledge of electronics certainly helps with this ;). In fact I had no experience with Minecraft before KaiseCraft. I started playing this game after my brother advised me to do so, meaning this server is the place where I learned most of my Minecraft skills.

The way I’d see my possible function as a moderator is the following. I have a decent activity on this server, meaning I’m able to see and notice a lot. Not only players whose behavior isn’t like it should be, but as well problems that are due to technical issues on the server. As a moderator, I’d feel obliged to describe these well, and posting them on the forums or contacting Kaise123. I know he isn’t able to be online all the time, so an extra set of eyes is no unnecessary luxury.

Furthermore, I’m willing to be an active member on the forums. I’m not such a frequent poster, however I read everything and only interfere if I think it’s necessary. I like to found my arguments properly and I despise bad grammar, which brings me to another point.

I think this server is in dire need of some, let’s say, maturity. Doing a quick search, I already figured out I’m among the oldest players here. I think it wouldn’t be a bad thing to have more adult staff members. It makes communication a lot easier and pleasant (mostly older people know their English better, and have better verbal skills).

Next, I’d like to talk about the commands I’d need to know. Of course, since I have no previous experience, I don’t know them all by heart. I did some Wiki-readings however and I think I know the deal. Furthermore, my brother Exigopro told me he’s more than happy to teach me how to use them.

I think KaiseCraft is a very good server. And even more important I believe to get along quite well with other players. That’s the main reason I kept playing here, and why I’d like to help making KaiseCraft even better.

To finish with, I’d like to state that I’m very curious to hear your feedback. Please don’t be afraid to give your proper opinion, and if there are any questions or remarks, shoot.

Greetings to you all!

Builder Applications / Deimos' Builder Application
« on: October 13, 2013, 11:54:38 PM »
Hello forum!

I thought it was about time to apply for builder. My main purpose of doing so is because I have been playing on this server for over 2 months now. I really enjoy myself here and I think it's about time to get myself a little higher in Kaisecraft's hierarchy. Furthermore, some people have been pushing me in doing so, such as Admin Exi and Sr. Mod. HanSolo.

As some of you might know already, I play on the survival world most of the time. This being the main reason why the builds I'm going to show you here today are solely built in survival, not in creative:



In the picture above, there are four main things to see. First of all the big black castle on top of the hill. Being built next to the sea in an extreme hill biome, this fort grants excellent view over the surroundings and provides a great habitat for players. I must admit that this is the only build on the picture that I didn't completely built by myself. Admin Exi helped by placing some of the obsidian blocks (of course completely legal, we mined it underneath the mountain), however, all the detail was added by me, such as the towers and rims on the structure.

Secondly the great tower in the background. This one was built with oak wood, stone bricks, lapis lazuli rocks and some other materials. It's nearly as tall as the castle, but starts from sea level and provides lots of living space for any person living in it.

Third, the entry towers to the castle grounds. Two small towers built with cobblestone and some small details added are adjacent to the castle wall surrounding the entire area.

Fourth, the bridge connecting the entry towers and the staircase to the entrance of the castle. This one was built with stone bricks and some quartz blocks were added as decoration.

Please look at the pictures underneath for some other angles of view.





Finally I'd like to show you another underground farm I built in survival. It's efficiently harvestable, and esthetically pleasing.



My in-game name is the same as my forum profile name: Deimos, my MCMMO level is 1726. I hope these builds are appreciated and I'd like to hear some feedback!

Cheers!

Suggestions / Suggestions in order to raise Kaisecraft's popularity
« on: September 19, 2013, 06:43:53 PM »
Dear forum,

I have been playing on this server for a few months now and I think it's about time to give my personal opinion about it.

I think it's easy to agree on the fact that the popularity of a server is determined by the amount of players playing on it. I honestly believe that Kaisecraft has a lot of potential (otherwise I wouldn't have stayed here this long), but it is lacking behind since it's popularity isn't high enough.

There are a few things that attract new players, first of all, the amount of currently online players. At some times, the server has around 20 players online, simultaneously, which is great! Though at some times, the amount of people online is nearly 0, which is a very bad thing to have. Indeed, no players online equals no players wanting to join, which results in no rise in popularity and vice versa.

That's why I'm suggesting the following, in descending order of importance:

Make Kaisecraft more accesible. Everyone is free to join the creative world, but not the survival world. This immediately limits the amount of players wanting to join with the intention of playing survival games. Kaisecraft has a very good survival world in my opinion; old school survival, no help from the beginning, you start from scratch and that's what a lot of people like. Filling in an application on the forums is not that big of a job, I know that. But people who are just browsing for good survival games, aren't very likely to stay since they weren't able to get a taste of the survival world, because it's not accessible. Being the main reason not to even consider filling in an application on the forums. I'd strongly advise (and I'm sure this would rise the amount of players) to let EVERYONE who joins be able to play on the survival world.

I'm not sure why this isn't possible yet. Probably because people wanted to limit the amount of raiders, just stealing stuff and then never coming back. I don't see the problem there. This is survival for god's sake. If you don't want to be stolen from, hide your stuff better. The world is big enough to find yourself a nice and safe place to hide so there's absolutely no reason to be afraid of people like that. Another counterargument: we use the factions plugin, immediately allowing you to protect what's yours, in the unlikely event people find your well hidden base ;). I might overlooked something, so please let me know.

Secondly, people are also attracted by the number of players slots. Popular servers have plus minus 50 to 100 players online simultaneously. Therefor I'd advise to raise the amount of player slots to at least around 100. I know this is costly, and a counterargument would be the fact that we don't have that much players playing at the same time and it would therefor not be necessary to raise the amount of slots. Though, if I were a new player browsing for servers, I'd immediately check the amount of slots. Lots of player slots means a lot of potential players playing simultaneously, resulting in me wanting to join this server. I know this is costly, but I'd see it as an investment (more players = more potential donors), and it would certainly be interesting to consider this suggestion.

Lastly, I'd like to talk about the look of the creative world. I don't know what happened there, but the landscape is created in such a way, it's nearly impossible to just start building somewhere. It's way too rugged. I'd advise, in the future, to use the normal landscape generator (or how do I call it) so people are able to build on the ground, and are not forced to build ugly platforms hovering above the landscape. I think lots of people don't like the current look of the creative world, resulting in less players joining the server. (But I might be wrong on that one, I'm  nearly only playing survival)

I hope I made some good points here, and I'd like to hear feedback from anyone. Please feel free to counterargument my suggestions, not necessaraly all three, and let me know what you think about them.

Cheers!

Hello all!

I'd like to apply for citizen since I'd really like to play and build on the survival world.

Since it's appreciated to show some of your work; here's something I built recently on the creative world:



I've played the game for 4 days, and I'm really fond of it! My in-game name is Deimos.
