There is now a chance for Excavation to drop a wither skeleton skull, provided your skill is 1500 or higher. It has a small chance of dropping (0.02%) each time you harvest 2 certain blocks. However I will not be revealing these blocks for the time being until someone else works out what blocks need to be harvested.

Due to JRCash and JRRewards in it's infancy as a beta service as described in a previous news post we may have to reset JRCash due to the beta if exploitation occurs.
Since it has we have had to reset JR Cash. This is to keep things fair for all members. We do not intend this to happen again, we know this is annoying for users who have earned JRCash previously.
While we have reset JRCash we are giving all users a multiplier of 2x JRCash for the next week as an apology and a thank you for working with us through this hard time.

JRCraft Updates

By Jamie, in Minecraft,

We have updated the JRCraft Survival server as shown below:
Updated spigot to latest version JRCash integration. Use JR Cash made from posting in the forum or playing on different servers within JRCraft. Earn JR Cash by doing jobs on the server which you can purchase rewards from https://jrnetwork.net/rewards/ Changed command book for essentials Setup permissions to sort out essentials Added better beds. Now, only 40% of the server needs to sleep before time becomes day. Also Premium + players do not need to do this Premium + users now have access to /god /heal /jumpto, /vanish, /ptime, /repair, /speed, /skull, /hat, /back Use /tpa  to ask for teleportation Players get access to /tptoggle to stop users tping to the, (excluding staff) Updated worldedit plugin Updated jobs plugin Fixed issue with GriefPrevention. Now works for users properly Updated jobs configuration to fix JRCash exploiting Fixed small bugs with JR minecraft <-> website login system Re-added shop chest. You can now sell or buy things from other players by creating shops in survival. Video on how to do this is below. Due to grief prevention:  a player can create shops only in regions where he/she is allowed to open chests.

REND Server Issue (We know)

By Jamie, in News,

New and existing players, please note we are aware of a global bug causing issues on private servers. We are awaiting a game update to fix this issue. This is not a problem with our server only!

Bug is as follows:
https://community.rendgame.com/discussion/673/rend-early-access-launch-known-issues#latest

First Character on a Server Crashes Server

While we've resolved this issue on the official servers, private servers may find that the first character on a server crashes it. Using the Exit to Desktop button via the ESC menu and restarting the game client resolves this issue. We'll fix it in our next game update.


If the server does crash please notify us in discord so we can take immediate action. #gameserverhelp

All it takes is a simple restart which takes less than 2 minutes and you will be able to join in as normal then. We are sorry that we can not do much more than this till the server software has an update. It's entirely out of our control. We are noticing it does not happen to everyone, but has happened a few times.
