The (Unofficial) SlimeFun Guide Part 2 is out! It is about setting up a basic energy system and get it running, I am planning on releasing another one soon about the Automatic Dust System (ADS) and how to set it up!

| TheFakeWorld is Back!

What's new and improved, and what's old and removed?

To start off before I write any of the changes, I would like to let everybody know we tried as hard as we could to keep everything the same, what we can guarantee is that your items, builds, and general vanilla-based stuff on the server are safe and sound!

Some of our plugins we used to use on TFW have been kept along this crazy ride as long as they can, but due to Java 16 and other reasons, some of these have broken, so we have replaced most of them with better functionality.

 

Without further ado, here are the major changes:

  • The server has been updated to 1.17.1! As unbelievable as that sounds, seeing our troubles with just 1.16.3 in the past, we have fully updated the server to be on the most current version of Minecraft so you can enjoy all the new features and block without trouble!

  • Upgraded Land Claiming! [IMPORTANTTowny and our old region claiming method have been combined into one nice and neat little package called Lands. As part of this transfer to the new Lands system:
    1. All towny lands have been automatically upgraded to the Lands system, no need to reclaim these, a benefit of this is that there is no longer a chunk limit on how large they can be due to members in your town! 

    2. Any regions that were created with the old plugin before this point are now called "Legacy Regions" and as of current are still protecting your land claims from outsiders so nobody is able to destroy your amazing builds, please follow these instructions:
      • Note: You will not be able to build in Legacy Regions after December 1st 2021
        1. Note down a set of coordinates that might help us find your region in game
        2. Send a message on our Discord server in the #ask-for-help channel (invite)
          • This can be something along the lines of: "I would like to claim my refund for my legacy region at (coordinates)"
        3. Once posted there, an Admin will be able to refund and remove the region for you so you can start claiming using the new plugin, you will be notified when this is done
        4. Use the /lands create command in-game to create your land, you can then use /lands claim to claim additional chunks
          • If you need help, ask us in #ask-for-help or contact someone you know has experience
          • I will be creating a guide on how to use Lands soon™
             
      •   All Legacy Regions will be refunded and removed on the new year, removing their protection.
        • If you are just figuring this out past this time, your items in locked chests are still safe and protected, and in case someone destroys your base, I doubt this will happen (there is a griefing rule, don't do this), it may be possible to roll it back depending on the situation.
        • So don't worry, we just want to remove any bugs that may get caused by the old regions being there.

 

  • The process for automatically ranking up in ABC is slightly broken at this time, the perks still exist and are also being worked on.
    • If you believe you are at the next rank up in ABC ask an admin in #ask-for-help or in-game to get your next ABC rank.
  • SlimeFun is here to stay! We have noticed it is stable enough to run on the current server, all old SlimeFun items should still exist and work so there is no need to dismay about the time spent working on the pieces of technological glory!

  • The web store prices have been reduced! This is to better represent our server's running costs, many things have gotten cheaper and don't forget every purchase there goes to improving the server and keeping it running for longer!

  • There are a few known issues that may appear, let us know if you find any more by sending a message in #ask-for-help:
    1. [Item] does not currently work
    2. Party chats do not currently work
    3. SlimeFun structures in the resource world are missing
    4. The ABC and Ranks pages are a little out of date (will be updated very soon)

Server Update 1

Server Update 1


What has been done so far?

  1. The service that we have decided to host the server on has been decided along with the plan giving a good forethought to how much it will cost to run the server from the time we start it up later this month forward. As of right now we are expecting the server cost to be about 12 USD per month. 
  2. The webstore for in-game ranks, crates, and tags has been remade to be a bit more simple and is currently working, although as of now the only functional aspect of it is the server fund as the server itself is not running yet. Please do not purchase things on the store until the server is running.
  3. The decision has been made as to what we plan to release survival as later this month. Our plan is to actually upgrade the server from 1.16.1 to 1.17.1 as is, so there is not going to be a need to worry about a world download to get access to your stuff again. As part of this, some plugins may be removed, and if some of our plugins that pertain to in-game currencies break such as regions or tokens, refunds will be made so you can enjoy the new systems we put into place. If by chance the server becomes a little unstable with the current world, we may perform a Build Transfer and also give out the World Download, athough we find it quite unlikley. If by any chance the server upgrade entirley fails and will not work, the plan is to do a full reset with world download avaliable, but 1Storm and myself now see that to be extremley unlikley.
  4. We are in the middle of finalizing the plugin set. In all technicality, there is not too much that is going to change so you won't see a huge difference between the old server and the new server. Also, if SlimeFun is stable and also decides to play nice, we will use it, if not, we are very sorry.
  5. I have decided that once the server is updated to 1.17.1 and running at least half-fine we will conduct an Open Beta sort of thing where you will be able to help us find bugs and if you want, just continue playing. Although, as part of that, we cannot gaurantee that any progress during that period will be saved.

What has yet to be done?

  1. We are working on getting files transferred over to my computer and also in general setting up the server and have it be ready for when people log on to it for the first time again so no players lose their homes, items, or general playerdata.
  2. Actually upgrading the server to 1.17.1 so we can better see what new problems we may come across.
  3. Adjusting the prices in the store to better fit our monthly goal since now we are running at a lower cost. Most prices related to Player, Global, and Tags will stay the same, but ranks will be more affordable to make it a bit more appealing to purchase to help keep the server running without myself having to pay for all the running costs.
  4. Finding a couple substitution plugins for some of our broken old plugins. We hope to find very similar ones, but don't be suprised that we hadn't told you if they are bit further than what we initially wanted.
  5. Re-revamping the ABC system so it makes more sense especially now that we only have a Survival Server. (This may happen AFTER the server is running)

Options

The Pondered Options


The Guarantees
(as best as I can keep them)

Before I start listing the options I want to provide to everybody about what be of the MC server soon, I do want to mention a few things that will happen no matter what option is chosen.

First and foremost, the world download will come out, this will be avaliable to anybody for download for as long as we can host a link to download it from or have a file to share on our computers, we want to make sure that everybody can open TFW at any time to enjoy the memories made on the server.

Secondly, any talk about a reset (excluding full resets) will most likley loosley follow the guidelines of this post made a few months ago. I will update that if that is the decided outcome most likley in a completley new post so there is no confusion.

Third, I (alkalinekats) will now be running the MC Server, and 1Storm will only be running TFW Bot. This is not to say that 1Storm cannot help, but he will not be the first line of contact you should go to about MC server problems.


The Options
These options will be rated on my personal scale of stability technilogically and sometimes financially 1 being the worst, 5 being the best

  1. Option 1: As is, with a bug fix (Stability Rating: 2)As nice as this option is so that TFW may never dissapear, it also means I can do the absolute least with the entire server, due to how some plugins are made, 1.16.1 is the most stable version of the server in its current state, the reason why the rating is so low is that I will have to downgrade the amount of ram the server runs on. This will also come with a small bug fix update, but almost nothing else is stable enough to add or remove from the world due to how fragile TFW is right now in its current state. This would mean no future updates and most likley no more addons to the server other than the occasional plugin or two for stability.
  2. Option 2: An attempted 1.17 (and beyond) upgrade (SR: 1)As much as how temping this option is, unless this is the option that everybody wants, this will most likley not happen due to how I mentioned above, how fragile TFW is in its current state. The only thing that this option may bring to show is that plugins will be removed and some player data will be lost if I direct upgrade to 1.17 and beyond. One thing I do know is that upgrading the world to 1.17 is not going to be hard, but making sure everything else works well is going to be really hard. In this case as well, the most I can do for updating the server is a bug fix and not a lot more although the freedom for more plugins does free up a little.
  3. Option 3: Take the world download and lets start anew (SR: 5)As much as I don't want to say it, but also do, a hard reset for new adventures is the most stable option, and with the world download already being guaranteed, you at least do not need to permanentley say goodbye to your builds. With this option we as a comunity can build the server from the ground up, builds, infrastructure, and plugins or even the lack of plugins. This would allow the absolute most freedom in what happen to TFW and possibly a rebirth of community in TFW as well. ...
  4. Option 4: New seed, new plugins, new version, same builds (SR: 4.5) (My Personal Favourite)... Although I know that quite a few of the members of TFW are not to keen on losing their progress, items and builds, that they have made on the old server, yet wouldn't mind a new world to play around in with new resources, new plugins, and a new seed (Yeah, yeah, we know that the jungle spawn is getting old, its even wearing down on me). This would allow a huge amount of freedom without loss of progress, though build transfers are not the easiest and player data that does not include items, will most likley be lost (Although I hope to keep playtime, and a few other statistics if I can XD). This option will also mean that if you want to start anew, you totally can and still have your old memories in the world download.

The Decisions

Along with any of these options, a few decisions must be made that can make or break quite a bit of the server.

  1. Decision 1: SlimeFunThis is a hard one since I do know that quite a bit of the people who play on the server love to progress within this plugin, I love it myself and would probably vote to keep it if I didn't know how harmful it is to our backend. At least half of the problems on the current server are due to SlimeFun and if we were to remove it would make life quite the bit easier and also make the server a lot less fragile and problem prone. The reason why I leave this to a decision and not straight up remove it is because there may be a chance that we could keep it if I deem it fit for the server.
  2. Decision 2: Regions (Options 2, 3, and 4)As it stands, our region plugin is severley outdated and bug prone, I know that's a very uneasy thing to say, but we will need to chose a new plugin for regions, expecially since Java 16 is now a thing in MC and will cause this already outdated and frankly broken plugin to probably never update. If we can find one similar we would love to implement it, but we do need the communities help deciding if we should either use the twony system of claiming from now on, or find a new plugin, or simply go on our griefing rule and use coreprotect and go without a plugin for regions.
  3. Decision 3: The World Border (Options 3 and 4)We don't need a world border that goes out to 1 million blocks, we just don't, 250K sound good? Jokes aside, we have always loved having a huge area for player to build in but we just straight up don't need 1 Trillion blocks of space for a community as large as ours, I still want to make the world border heccin large but tone it down a little bit to help server performace a little.

The LWC Guide (How to Modify Locked Inventories)

The LWC Guide (How to Modify Locked Inventories)

If you are sharing a base with your friends, this can be extremley usefull, along with public town structures like a town storage.


As you may have noticed already, every time you place down a chest, you get a line of green text in your chat that says :

This is made this way so that every chest you place can be protected in case someone might greif your base looking for items, it is also a way to make sure that mobs also have no effect on your precious items. 

You can read the commands and descriptions below to learn how to change the lock types on your chests :

/unlock :  If you want to make your chest accessible by anyone, or apply any other locks, you have to run this command

/lock : Lock an unlocked chest

/cpublic : After you run /unlock, you can put this protection on a chest to make it accesible by anyone, but not destroyable by anyone.

/cdonation : After you run /unlock, this will make your chest a donation chest, usefull for mailboxes in a town and donation chests in a shop.

/cpassword [password] : After you run /unlock, you can run this to make your chest password protected, so anybody with the password can unlock it.

/lwc -u [password] : This is the command you run to unlock a password protected chest

/cmodify [playername] or -[playername] : To add or remove player from your locked chest

/cinfo : Used to find the player who owns the protection and what protection it is.

/cremoveall : Rremove all locks on all protections This is Irreversable and Not Recommended

/chopper [on/off] : To allow hoppers to access or not acces your chests but for them to still be locked.

The Survival Guide

Welcome to The Survival Guide

A guide made for those looking for a way to kick off their adventure in TheFakeWorld Survival


Welcome to TheFakeWorld! In this guide you will learn the major and quite a few minor features of our Survival server. Hopefully this guide will teach you all the basics you need to know to enjoy your experience on our server!


Section 1 : How to get started


So, you have loaded into the survival spawn for the first time, here you can find many of our server warps, NPCs, information, and even how to get to this guide. Right ahead of you at /spawn is the opening out into the Spawn Jungle. There is a protection region around this area so we can keep it looking nice, but if you continue out further until the text on your screen displays that you left spawn, you can finally get to the buildable area.

If you would like to build next to spawn you can, but because we have a massive 2,000,000 x 2,000,000 world, you can find endless places to build by using the command /rtp, it will randomly teleport you to a place in the world in which you can explore to find a great place to build your new home.

Once you have been exploring for a while using the /rtp command and you find the perfect place to settle down, the next step is to run the command /sethome [homename] so if you happen to go away from the area you found for your house, you can return to it at a later point in time. Once as you have done that, you have two options to gather resources, the first is to clear your area to prepare for your house, so deforesting the area around your house so you can build it. The other is to go to /warp resource. In this place, you can mine anything to your heart's content and you can also /rtp as well if you need specific biome based resources. Once as you run /warp resource, you will be teleported to a building and all you have to do is walk in and wait a couple seconds.

Elite Mobs will spawn in the resource world which will be based on the armour you are wearing and tools you have in your inventory, if you are just starting out, they will be low level and have few abilities, the higher tier armour, the harder they get, but the better the reward. In the resource world, you can also find custom structures that may contain really good items.

Once as you have collected the resources for your house you can start on building it, making it the way you want. Now when you place chests and/or inventory based items, they will lock so no one else can open them (If you would like to know how to configure your locked inventories, you can read this guide)

Now that you have built your house, I would recommend claiming the area around it so no one, other than the people you invite. You can claim land by running /land. I would recommend the TNT plot since it is decently large for 15K, and you also start with 20K so it is affordable!

If you run /land after claiming your region, you GUI should then look like this, you can invite people under the steve head, set your land spawn under the ender pearl (you can teleport back to this by doing /land home), and see your region border by clicking the Experience Bottle. Eventually, you will have access to a Command Block that will let you change settings like mob spawning and snowfall.

Now you might be wondering about the ways to earn money on this server, currently, there are a few main ways :

Jobs : Jobs are ways of earning money by completing certain tasks that your job says in its description. For example, mining can earn money by breaking stone, ores, and placing rails. You can join jobs by running /jobs join, this will bring up a GUI, and all you have to do is choose and click on the job you would like to be in.

Chest Shops : You can earn money by setting up chests shops for people to buy from. This way is really easy, but not the best since you don;t know when people will buy from you. There is an already existing guide here about them.

The Auction House : Here you can sell items using /ah sell [amount] with the amount being how much you want to sell it for. The listing will go up to /ah for them to be seen by other players.

Trading : You can also trade with players using /trade [playername] for safe transactions that don't include throwing items on the ground or no money given in return for an item. This is not a great way to earn money since you do have to ask players but is definitely a way to sell valuables.

Crates and Voting : Whenever you vote on the server you will get a vote crate key and a vote token (that can be used in /vshop). You can use this crate key at /warp crates and have a chance at anything that is in it, including monetary rewards. Also, rare items can come out that you might be able to sell to other players looking for them. You can access the links for voting by running the command /vote


Section 2 : Voting, ABC ranks, McMMO, Towns, and Donator Ranks


Voting and ABC ranks : As mentioned right above this, whenever you vote, you will receive a Vote Crate Key and Vote Token. Along with this, every time you vote you will also get one point closer to your next rank. You can look at how many votes it takes to get to your next rank along with the perks each rank gives you here. This is a free way to earn all of the perks that donators can get other than some cosmetic ones. Since our ABC system also strives to continue improving, you can also suggest new things to be added to it by going to the Discord and suggesting in #suggestions

mcMMO : This plugin that we have added to our server provides a boost to your normal tools and skills. They go very well in hand with our Jobs plugin in that, at the same time you earn experience and money in your job, you will also gain experience in your McMMo levels relating to it. Such as if you had chosen the mining job, you can mine away getting higher and higher levels for both of them, not only earning more money the more you mine but also doubling and even tripling your item drop. You can also unlock abilities that can make you mine faster, place quicker, or even do more damage. ABC ranks can also increase how fast you earn experience and how fast your ability cooldowns reset. If you would like to know more about McMMo you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.

Towns : On our server, we have a towns system where you can get involved in a town or create your own to earn rewards like tokens and town exclusive crate keys. This is a great place to build a starter house and interact with the community before you go and build your own base. This can also help you gain relationships on the server that may help you in the long run. If you are interested it knowing how to start your own town or would like to know more about the towns system on TheFakeWorld you can visit /warp towns or look at this guide.

Donator Ranks : Our Donor Ranks are ranks you can purchase from our store at https://thefakeworld.net/store. Our donator ranks are a way to support the server and are also not necessary for you to play since all of the perks except some cosmetic perks are available using our ABC rank system. If you would like to look at a list of what Donator Perks you get for each rank you can go here. Our server relies on these donations to keep running with the kindness of players like you. If you have any more question about donator perks you can ask in #ask-for-help in the Discord.
