Happy New Year

StarTux AdminWin+ posted Jan 3, 15
With the new year, the Christmas event is over. I would like to thank everyone who participated in this hunt for the stolen goods. Thanks to you, all the presents have been returned, including the Christmas tree. The Creeper Overlord, however, managed to escape and his whereabouts remain unknown. We will keep you updated.

The contest winners are listed below. Congratulations to all the winners. You will receive your prizes shortly after this announcement. A complete list with a ranking of all the achievements can be seen on the relevant highscores page.

Most presents

The winners of this category are decided by how many presents they collected on any run. It doesn't matter whether or not the run was completed. Three of you managed to complete the adventure map with a stunningly high score which not even the map makers could reproduce. Respect to all of you.

  1. (144) Jewnier - 6 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  2. (142) CaptainSully - 3 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  3. (141) MenoMano - 1 month of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"

Fastest

The race for the fastest map completion turned out to be a battle which was determined by finding even the tiniest optimization, and accomplishing one perfect run. Not an easy task. We were surprised to see so many people ending with the same score, which is due to an unexpectedly wide participation, which was delightful. Keep in mind that when two people manage the exact same time, the victor is decided by who finished first. Since the two winners made their record runs almost a week before anyone else managed to catch up, we have very clear winners.

  1. (01:09) Jewnier - 2 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  2. (01:09) AnusWorm - 1 month of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"

Video

The promise of a special reward for uploading a video, along with the buffing of the regular prize, made many of you explore a hidden talent: video production. Runs on our server were recorded, edited and augmented with music and titles at a higher frequency than ever before, and the results were very impressive as well as entertaining.
To reward the additional effort of turning your adventure map progress into a video and uploading it, we reward everyone who posted their video on our forum with the prize for this category.

Here is a list of the winners of: 1 month of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"

Winthier Saves Christmas

StarTux AdminWin+ posted Dec 18, 14
We need your help, fellow Winthierians! The Creeper Overlord has stolen all the presents from the Winthier Christmas tree, including the tree itself. His plan is to ruin Christmas for everyone. Only you can stop him. Talk to the Christmas Bunny at spawn to get filled in on the details.

Christmas Bunny

This Christmas event will take you to a special adventure map where you receive further instructions. Your goal is to follow the trail of stolen Christmas presents to find out where the Creeper Overlord brought the Christmas tree. On your way you will face his dangerous minions and pick up the presents he lost while he fled with the tree. Make it to the end with as many presents as possible, and Christmas will be saved.

Christmas Tree

This event starts now and will end on January 1st, 2015, 00:00, server time. You can play as often as you want as long as the event is going. Every time you make it to the end, you will be rewarded with a special Christmas present item on the Winthier server, as well as 10 credits per present you found on your adventure.

In addition, you can keep track of your progress on the Christmas highscore page. Once the event is over, we will reward the highest ranked people with special rewards.

Most presents collected in one run, finished or not; only one prize per person.
  1. 6 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  2. 3 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  3. 1 month of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"

Speed runs, the shortest time to make it to the end; only one prize per person.
  1. 2 months of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"
  2. 1 month of Win+, In-game title "Santa's Helper"

Everyone who makes a video of their successful run and uploads it to Youtube, according to our guidelines in the Winthier videos thread, is eligible to the following.
  • 1 month of Win+
  • In-game title "Santa's Helper"

For more information on the Win+ rank, consult the wiki page. The title "Santa's Helper" is optional and can be toggled with the "/title" command.


Suddenly... 1.8

StarTux AdminWin+ posted Dec 3, 14
We just updated the main server to Minecraft version 1.8, and with it the hub and creative. With this update come a few changes, some good, some bad. I will try to list them here.

Rabbit

The Bad

  • Mojang removed some items from the game. The most important ones are seamless logs, seamless double slabs, fire and water. I will try to compile a complete list in time. Our custom recipes for these had to be removed. Should you have had any of these items in any inventory or container somewhere, they will be gone. Sadly, there is nothing we can do about it. We are very sorry. If you lost any totems because of this, we are working on refunding the purchase cost; see below.
  • The skills system had to be put on hiatus. It will come back once we have updated it and made it fit for the gameplay changes in 1.8.
  • Some item frames and paintings might pop off the wall where they didn't before. Make sure to check your homes for missing wall decorations as you may have a chance to pick up the items in time.
  • The tab list no longer shows players from other servers. We are looking into whether this is fixable or not.
  • Mobs don't show their health when damaged. We will bring this feature back in time.

The Good

  • All new 1.8 features, including armor stands, banners and rabbits. Need I say more?
  • The new stone types (granite, andesite and diorite, amirite?) have been added to the parallel world (from 1.7). Should you explore this world, you will find all the new stone types under ground, by chance even in already existing mines!
  • The resource area was replaced with a whole resource world. You can explore this world 1000 blocks in each direction and harvest anything you can find. This world will be reset periodically, so don't worry about preserving the landscape too much. Building in there is not recommended as anything you make in this world can and will be destroyed eventually. You can access the resource world as usual via /resource or a portal at spawn.
  • If you lost fire or water totems because they are removed items, we are working on refunding you for the purchase cost. Please bear with us while we are looking for the receipts. Keep in mind that all totems are momentarily not working because the skills system is disabled (see above), but they will once we bring it back.

This was a fairly challenging update to perform as 1.8 is so different from the previous version, and of course there was an extraordinarily long wait this time around. Please report any issue you come across. Thank you all for bearing with us patiently while we were not able to upgrade for so long.
