Suggestions & Ideas / Re: UPDATE????
« Last post by ItsLawrence on 28 Jun 2020, 18:32:26 »
Now I have no idea when the last time the server has been updated..  but, sees how popular its been...with this stay at home deal... people might get back on more, but again... is the server ever gonna be updated to current minecraft? 
There are definitely plans to update to newer versions of Minecraft, yes. Unfortunately this is quite a big task with all of the different changes and things I have to change, but I will be working towards this as one of the main upcoming things. I apologise but it'll probably still be quite a while, for now you'll have to continue with 1.12.2 if you wish to play on Noobstown!

Site Announcements / Introducing Discord
« Last post by ItsLawrence on 28 Jun 2020, 15:47:53 »

We're introducing a new way to talk to other Noobstown players from today; we've created a Discord server! This is replacing the former TeamSpeak server that has now been removed.

To connect to the Noobstown.com Discord server just visit Noobs.town/discord/ in your browser; you'll be directed through the process of connecting your Noobscraft.com account with your Discord account and then you'll be automatically invited to the server with all of your ranks and name set up correctly!

This server is available for both text and voice chat, and will follow the same rules as the site and server. In the future there will likely be more options to talk with the Minecraft game server from Discord too; plus other useful functionality.

We're open to feedback on this change, and would love to hear any comments you've got. I look forward to talking to some of you on there!

Any issues noticed please let me know.

Server Announcements / Re: Temporary Worlds Reset Planned
« Last post by ItsLawrence on 28 Jun 2020, 13:12:44 »
The Mining World, Nether and End have now all been reset. The initial world border sizes have also been reset, these will continue to expand over the next few months, so don't worry if they're limited at the moment, over time you'll be able to go much further afield.

Server Announcements / Temporary Worlds Reset Planned
« Last post by ItsLawrence on 20 Jun 2020, 14:41:03 »

UPDATE: The temporary worlds have now all been reset!

The temporary worlds (Mining World, Nether and End) will be reset at some point next weekend (27th-28th June); this likely to result in a very short period of server downtime next weekend while the reset occurs. As is currently the case; the spawns will continue to change constantly in those worlds, but the reset means further fresh areas to explore.

Please ensure that anything you wish to keep from those worlds is removed before next weekend.

A further reply will be made once the reset is complete.

AH! I wasn't sure, it's all good! Just was curious because I had so many in the top but didn't make top of the top.

I didn't make it into the top of the top, but I'm in the top 3 as well as being in the top 10 for many other categories. Is that right? I may not understand how it's exactly calculated then.
You are right that you were in the top for quite a few categories, but not the Top of the Top. I've not completely explained how the Top of the Top Points are exactly calculated because I don't want people to specifically target gaming that system and working it purely to get that up. There are however a few reasons for this:
  • The scoring is not just based on your positions, but is actually based on your distance away from people in each individual category, so if you're only just beating someone below you then that's worth less points than being dramatically ahead of them. Your score is based in relation to the other players in each category, so other people doing well means you have to do even more to get higher and higher.
  • There is weighting of different categories based on their perceived difficulty, and range of score each month, so for example: voting holds a bigger weight than blocks mined, because it's harder to gain a massive score in voting since that is limited and we want to encourage voting. Additionally because there is a "Total mcMMO XP Gained" category which is a sum already, and there are so many mcMMO categories; all of the individual mcMMO specific stats are weighted lower to avoid mcMMO essentially dominating the top scores, and making other categories irrelevant.
  • Those in the top 3 of each category get bonus points for being in the top 3, again this bonus is also based on how far away they are. So getting from position 4 to the top 3 is a potential reasonable jump in Points.

In May you were in position 14 for Top of the Top.

I'm willing to look at and review the specific calculations if there is a general agreement and others think the current process is slightly unfair though.
