  1. Hey Everyone, I'm Guessing everyone here is wondering when JR is updating to 1.6? Well you have come to the right post, I can tell you this, it will not be happening until we can verify that there is a stable build out there as well as updates for our plugins, (we will have to update our own ones too). This may be a matter of days to a week or two, but believe me its for the better good to make sure JR will switch over smoothly without any problems. I for one updated my server to a 1.6 Bukkit build today, and you think that would be a great idea, yes loads of players join but, it was extremely unstable, not to mention the lag and the console spam from end of stream and players not being able to pick up items, it even crashed my server countless of times! So i had to go back to 1.5.2, never again will i be using such an unstable build again, i have learned my lesson lol! I hope you can understand that we will be updating to 1.6, when the time is right guys, stay tuned! Also if you have downloaded the new client to try out 1.6 and want to join back to JR in 1.5.2, here is how: Frank.
  2. Hey guys, So a lot of work was put in for this release, the staff team have been working with me on this for around a month. We want to know, was it worth it? Please leave a vote in the poll and a comment on what you think. -- There will be more to come, but some side features are disabled while we still continue to develop them! Hope you enjoy the new site, Regards, Jamie
  3. Enjoy, Jamie
  4. Software JR will be re configuring it's server software for the new server so we run way better, I have never released much information on our software but I will today! Since JR is a big server and requires most of it's RAM and CPU for Minecraft so we run a custom based linux distro which is partially based upon Debian, since Debian is one of the lightest and stable operating systems. JR will be running of course the latest Java 7 build. We can't release much more information about our server setup for minecraft but at least you know partially . Map and Server Backups Since the hardware allows JR will be doing map backups every day and plugin backups every 2 days. The JRCraft Survival Map I have decided with a lot of the staff last night that we will indeed be replacing our 15 GB survival map this update for a couple of reasons: - It's crowded - It's running out of ores - 1.3 Has new ores - It's huge and there isn't any areas for new users I want to keep my build! Don't reset the map. We have already decided to reset the map, it's happening. For instructions on keeping your structures please read: on how to submit the form to transfer your builds. Right well I have had numerous complaints that users want the old survival world to stay. While I don't think it would be the best idea, trying to keep everyone happy I have decided that the old JR survival world IS going to stay and not been reset. Why? and What's going to happen? JR will be separating the old survival and removing a couple of features from it as it would mess up the whole server if we didn't - No economy in old survival - No item sharing in different worlds - Mob arena and War will be moved to a mini games world with all the new arenas we are building There will still be a new survival world which we will be asking users to build in and we will still transfer projects over from the old world to the new world as the new world has more ores, items etc. The new survival world will still incooperate /warp jrzone as the spawn and will have all the latest features. While you are still in the old world transferring things this way will be more easy for members and hey you may decide to play in the new world when you see the new features. But of course if you just want to play in the old world, feel free! It'll stay open till users stop playing in it. JR is here to make users happy not upset users. WE at JR are doing this specially for you, no other server would do this but just remove it and not give a damn, WE -> I give a damn, I hope you stick around and have more fun at JR than ever before! Please be aware: Items, chests and inventories will not be transferred to the new world for a couple of reasons: If this happens the new map economy will be screwed up fully and it'll ruin the fun new economy we have lined up. Right now everyone has diamonds and they screw the economy, with the new system you won't be able to get everything right away it'll be more rewarding and challenging. New spawn: With the new map will come the new spawn, which will be /warp JRZone (Take a look right now Within spawn will be a 500*500 protection around JRZone, outside the JRZone grounds there will be houses and some nice information within them, NPC's will be found around JRZone giving interesting vital information. First join spawn: We will be making a new first join spawn that wont include a quiz making it easy for users to read the rules. Plugins Economy: Will be reset, giving users 100 coins static pricing will be added to the mall and we will re launch the mall with 5,000,000 coins. The static pricing will be highly tuned so it won't be glitchable. Voting: To make voting more exciting we will be starting to trace users who vote each month and users will have the chance (If they vote the most amount of times a month to earn Gold Membership for a two week period). Users who vote everyday will earn 100 coins for every vote, if you vote on all three sites it will be giving you 300 coins. Mob arena: We will be resetting the mob arena and building a new arena for users to play in, the old one is dark dingy and unused. War: We have had some exciting battles within war we are going to excite things with a big mix up of new arenas. Online Status plugin: JR will be having an online status page *status.jrcraft.net* to show the current system load and status of JRCraft. Weather: Weather will be switched on in survival Additional fun silly plugins! JR Craft will have more fun little silly plugins that keep us entertained Other World Changes RPG: A new RPG world with a story line will be released shortly after JRCraft 2.0 is released Hardcore: Hardcore will be reset so more griefing can occur Nether and Ender: Will be reset as well. Keep watching this post for information on JRCraft V2.0 for more information as it'll be updated here. - Rebel24 Enjoy!

    Reapers - Base News

    IF YOU'RE A REAPER PLEASE READ! Now, I know Reapers are just a faction, but to many it's more then that. So, I'll cut to the chase, the base, it's gone to He- I mean gone to Nether. The place is completely trash, (except the 5th floor) because of something I do not know, I think it was a rollback mistake. So, yesterday night (for me anyway) some of us reapers decided on a new base after all the griefs and damage. If you want to check the progress on the new base so far, which isn't much, you can go to /warp Reapers2 So, you may ask yourself, 'what about the old base?' Well, we ask you take your stuff outa there, it will forever be open, and you are free to live in it. But, the leaders of the faction are going to be stripping the place of what we made, as in, the hallway arches and carpets. We are also removing all signs and anything else that is removable placed by us. We suggest you do the same to your rooms in the base. So what are we doing with the new base? What makes it better than the current one? Well, we are thinking of bring some old Reaper stuff to now. As in, a skyway, a bridge connecting multiple mountains together, hanging at near building limit. Along the sides, I hope to have shops ONLY, this way, we have 1 place for all shops. Another neat thing added is defence, we need some gaurd towers, and maybe some military stuff for show. This will make the base nicer and everything. Next, new ranks! Im thinking that each rank have actual privilages over others. I haven't quite thought of a new for the ranks, so feel free to leave suggestions!!!! The lowest rank will be forced to have homes in the smallest mountain, with rooms already made. You are allowed to decorate it, even change the materials of the walls and floor. The next rank will be able to live in the nicer mountain, make your own room (with limits on size). The final earnable rank will be really special, you'll be allowed to have a home on the large vally space available, it can be any size, but it must be a able to fit in the space that has been choosen. Ok, I lied about earnable rank, THIS is the last one. This one, you can have a job around the base, you don't get payed (what a shame) but you get TONS of privilages, such as secret rooms and everything! It will be the best rank possible. How are you suppose to earn the next rank? To earn the next rank, you must do a few easy things! Come to meetings and give suggestions Own a small business(get to that in a sec) Have a nice room Own a shop etc So, how do you "Own a small business" ? The small business is a section in the vally made JUST for business! When I say businesses, I mean different from shops. A business can count as a restraunt, bar, pub, Casinos, etc. Some last second notes! Ok, griefing will NOT be tolerated! You grief, you're outa this faction! You're BANNED, unless I unban you from the faction.(You'll also get a warning on the server, so don't grief ANYWHERE at all, but grief us, YOU'RE BANNED!) P.S: If the grief is big enough, you're banned from the server aswell Also, I MIGHT reset the faction, as-in, disban it, then recreate to re-establish people for new ranks

    Server Money

    Hey guys, I have reset every ones money for the following reasons: 1) There was a major exploit with users selling stuff in creative, this was really exploited and made people have thousands upon thousands of pounds. 2) All the prices in the shop are really cheap and you don't need millions. If your going to rage and get angry about it, All I can say is grow up and leave because its a bit of play money after all. The last time we did this we got a couple of horrible emails. If people are going to exploit things we have to fix it. This is fixing the recent exploits. Plus there will be a couple of new things added to the money system soon We hope you understand why we have done this, Regards, Jamie

    VIP Membership now paid

    Hi guys, We are not allowing users to get free VIP via 400 - 1000 posts etc. anymore. Why is it paid now? For one, we need the money to sustain and support JR. Two, it would filter our abusive users that don't give a s*** and only want to spam compared with our great users that are willing to pay to help JR and enjoy their experience by making it better for everybody. Can I get a trial? You can get VIP for 7 days (one time only though) if you bring a friend, this is mean't to be a trial. But I want VIP and have no money? I'm sorry but this won't work. If you don't have the money you can't get VIP; there is never any free VIP membership given out except for month memberships that may be given out in events. I'd prefer if you didn't reply with a hate reply saying that it's unfair. It's only to support our running costs (over 80 euro per month for each server... Just a note to say, we have 2 servers now..) I hope you understand this is to help JR. Regards, Jamie

    JR Network on Steam!

    Hey guys, JR Network is now on steam, please join us if you use steam http://steamcommunity.com/groups/JRNetwork Thanks, Jamie
  10. Source Cobwebs, Mineshafts and More I highly doubt that Notch will add a feature where every underground hole you dig will have to have support columns, but lets what the mineshafts turn out to be. Yes, obviously they are mineshafts, but other than "new cobweb blocks" the above did not state what these shafts were going to contain so I can assume that they will contain tracks, minecarts, possibly chests with pickaxes? Enderman I was talking to Mr.Keviny on the server earlier and he said that they were 'over-powered' because they can teleport to a player and kill them when the player looks at them. However, minecraftwik.net states that they drop diamonds and take damage when they come in contact with water which is weird because I cannot see Notch's logic in that. New Lighting Two things I would like to discuss here: that is each light source (torch, glowstone etc) produce its own lighting colour and the brightness slider people have been waiting for. I think its interesting that each different light source will produce its own colour. However, not very game changing, a nice touch. Whereas the brightness slider is something that majority have been waiting for. When I first heard about it, I had no idea what people were on about, but I (finally) understand when I saw the demo/commentary video Notch made. I think the Brightness Slider would be a great feature, but I won't be using it. Experience, Hunger I saw the commentary video Notch made and the experience system, I must admit, is really cool! I recall Notch saying that the ability to spend experience will not be available until 1.9, but experience orbs will be collectable when a mob is killed. Hunger adds more realism to the game, but I'm not a big fan of it. I've ranted about it on previous topics, so I won't be doing it again here. Rivers, Oceans A very nice feature that adds realism and more scenery to the game. The above states that flow will be not included, but it has been considered. I think Mojang should also consider underwater caverns which could potentially make way to future mobs. Expanded Combat Its nice to hear that the bow mechanics are better than it was before. As of the 1.8 update, you will be able to 'charge' your bows allowing for ranged shots and the possible 'critical hits'. The above also states that you can knock-back mobs while you sprint and hit a mob. I don't think that's necessary, but it could become useful in some way. New (and Expanded) Biomes More distinct biomes, sounds okay, nothing too exciting. What I am excited in is the mentioned Mountain Biome. This new biome would potentially be the home to the hinted dragon mob! 1.8 will add Creative Mode The above states that in this mode, the player will take no damage, be able to fly, control day/night directly, can spawn infinite items of any type, and can break blocks with one hit. I think this is really interesting and something JR could look into.
  11. Right as of now a turn of events. We can not allow the shop exploits to continue. So we have reduced the price of bowls and some other items which allowed many users to get a lot of money. This has got out of hand and everyone is taking advantage of the exploit. It's time to remember this is not freebuild its a survival server with a big amount of projects, we are not going to stop you getting money to build projects with but we are finding a better way than using exploits which allow you to get millions within 10 minutes. Awww come on, I need the money... Don't worry we have some cool stuff in mind Well 1 the user based shops are changing to chest shops in the next hour more info will be added on the wiki. We are not, stopping you make money but at the moment the cat is out of the bag with the exploited bowls. We are going to look in to the jobs system and make it better so you can make some money We are installing a lottery system soon so you can put some money towards a big wad of cash Me, tawny and Dcrown have come up with a fantastic idea that you may like (kept secret till we talk to the staff about it) Whats happening with the server? Well we at JR Network think that its a bit unfair that people can make millions in a couple of minutes. But we do want to encourage growth of the server and be reasonable to users. We want to help with your projects we are just coming up with a controlled method that will be easy to understand and easy to get help with We do not ever, want to take away your fun, We just want everyone to have fun with out using exploited items. Will I get punished if I used the Bowl or other exploits? No, we are not going to punish you guys since we were made aware of it, but we will as we have said be finding ways that are more inventive than just exploiting a shop *bug* as such. This will make it more fun and more entertaining in the long run. We are here for you guys, not for our profit. We actually don't have any profit from what we do. We fund it back into the website. Our aim in our website is to have the best community we have. That's why we want to hear how you feel, if you have ideas etc. As for the updates I have been updating a lot of the plugins as there has been major changes with them We will be updating craftbukkit to a fixed version for the chests today, hopefully normal chests will work properly again, If they do we will be putting a price on virtual chests now. Hope you understand why we have had to change this. Regards, Your friendly neighborhood Jamie
  12. Hey Guys, Since we are growing we are changing some accounts that we host over to a new server that we own. This is to keep the main server stable with other things. If your account has been moved you shouldn't need to change anything as our DNS is clustered. The new JR Nameservers for the new server are: ns1.jrnetwork.info ns2.jrnetwork.info Regards, Jamie

    In the Dark

    Hey guys, As you may have noticed I have not been around the website for a while, or minecraft. So whats going on? basically, I have bought in to feale IT I own a 5% share of the buisness and I have been busy with my full time job there. Since they had websites that needed to be administrated I am transfering over100% of all the websites. Eg why I have been so busy. This is just to inform you I will be active like I was half a month ago when the website transfers are complete. Regards, Jamie
  14. Source Well this pretty much explains what that "mysterious" bar is; a experience bar. So in 1.8, a system will be added where the longer you play, the higher chance of dying. This gives everyone more of a challenge since some think Minecraft is easy, but Notch is adding it because he's a "rougelike fan". I'm not sure about you guys, but I don't really like the sounds of this because it'd mean that your inventory would have to be stocked up with food before you go anywhere and since food isn't stackable, its a bit more space consuming. That's all I can really say about this feature, what do you guys think? Like or dislike?
  15. Source Boss fights? This sounds like an element of RPG which I actually love. Anyway I wonder: how this is going to work. Assuming that bosses are going to be really strong and they should not kill us in one hit, what would their damage be? what will they look like? I am hoping that the bosses will not be giants of every mob because that'd just be plain boring and it goes to show that there has been no effort put into the bosses. I wouldn't mind Notch did use a zombie, but if so, Notch should add some features to the zombie so that its unique compared to the everyday zombie we see. where will they spawn? I think it'd make sense that bosses spawn in dungeons, but in other games, bosses usually drop some treasure anyway so there's no point since dungeons already provide chests with this and that. I was also thinking that bosses could be spawned in pre-generated ruins/structures along side with a mob spawner because you know how it is, bosses always have their minions So what do you guys think about this/what I've mentioned?
  16. Source This is an awesome deal! I wish I could get it bad I don't have a paypal account with the sufficient money. Anyway, I think we should get it while it lasts because this event is limited to this weekend only and congrats to Notch who is getting married!

    The Helper Group

    Hi Guys, I will be bringing in a new global group for the forum and minecraft etc, It's mean't for users wanting moderator rights, I will select helpers out for their helpfulness on the server. If you ask for it you will never get a chance. Whats the benefits and what do you need to do? Well #1 the benefits would include: 1) Get access to a small forum on the staff board dedicated to you so you can discuss users and get help from other helpers, moderators and admins. 2) You represent JR and will receive an email address that has @jrnetwork.net 3) Get on to moderator status if you keep up the good work and prove your self. What you need to do? 1) Support JR, advertise us and help us get more active 2) Advise and help users if they need the help 3) Follow, moderator, admin, founder and my instruction 4) Look and follow the rules at all times at http://rules.jrnetwork.net/ 5) Get help from your superiors if you need help 6) Remember you represent JR, if you disrespect users, don't follow rules etc. You will just lose your rank and never get it back. The new group will be added today at some stage, Regards, Jamie
  18. Hey guys, We are slowly bringing points back in to the forum, they will be used for many different things. There will be another announcement with updates of what it will do etc. Soon. Also the arcade for the forum will be back soon too! Regards, Jamie

    News Announcements

    Since we have a nice website we are working on we are going to start posting news announcement at the site as well as the forum, This is to make things look better and we may only post forum news in the forum etc. We are looking to improve JR the best we can, any suggestions give us a bell at info@jrnetwork.net
  20. Source This news is a bit old, but since 1.8 isn't out yet, I'll just post it anyway for any one who doesn't know about it I've heard people say that travelling long distances in Minecraft can be a bit boring when we're always walking everywhere. I think sprinting would a very nice addition for a player which, I think, half of the time would be used as an escape mechanism; running away creepers, skeleton archers etc. What do you guys think?
  21. Source Melons and pumpkins. Pumpkins are pretty rare at the moment, but hopefully the Adventure Update will fix that and provide more uses for it. I think pumpkins should just be pumpkins because when you first find them, a face is already carved into them. So what I think could happen is pumpkins should look like the every day pumpkin. When crafted into a Jack-o-lantern, I think the Jack-o-lantern should output both the Jack-o-lantern and the flesh of the pumpkin it self. It just sounds more realistic. I don't if its even possible to find a pre-carved pumpkin any where in real life but pumpkins were probably added in the Halloween Update. "pumpkins would grow from a central stem and to a maximum size". My impression is either: 1. Pumpkins can grow to an enormous size 2. Pumpkins start out small then grow to their current size. As for melons, I think melons are an Ok addition to Minecraft. Its, just another new food, but it gives more variety of foods and it would be a +1 to another farm type. Animal farms. I think this is where the real farming comes in. I've always wanted my own animal farm but the animals just disappear Animal farms will allow us to easily gather resources without having to go too far, not that sheep are hard to find anyway. The ability to help (or harm) NPC villages as desired. Interesting, I wonder if this will work for multiplayer as well. If the Adventure Update gives us that ability then I assume that NPC will not be wall flowers, but maybe something like AI? Boss monsters. I assume that the boss monster will be bigger than the normal mob, so I'm not so sure how the boss monster will fit into a dungeon. We all know dungeons are pretty small so it'd just be awkward for something as big as a boss monster to be in a dungeon. Not unless the dungeon is expanded or replaced with fortresses. What do you guys think?
