Important Summer Update 2019

| Summer Update!
Welcome to the Summer Update! We will go into detail about new features, fixes, and more below!
We're excited to announce these kind of features and extremely proud of the team and BETA team for testing all these new features. Please also be aware that more BETA testers will be accepted over time so please consider applying at http://apply.peacefulfarms.net/

| Performance changes and fixes!
| Item-stacking
Most of you may be aware that the server has had approximately 40-50 minutes down-time on Wednesday 19th 2019. These changes were focused on performance issues addressing hopefully most of the server lag over the past month. We have also fixed and addressed the taunts issue!

Item-stacking is now a lag-free feature that collects the same item within a 5 block radius and groups them into 1 item going over the limit of 64x instead of having hundreds/thousands of melons, cactus, or other related items being stuck and causing the lag you have attended to see over the past month.
Stacked items on the floor get cleared every 15 minutes even in unloaded chunks making Peaceful Farms less laggy experience with all the auto-farms in-game.

Here is an image below showing you what stacked items look like:

| Taunts
As previously you may have not been aware but there were a couple taunt performance issues with the plugin failing to deliver to cancel particles or different type of effects as-well as taunts causing slight lag and a whole load of background issues. This has all been resolved and the plugin has been re-written by Steven making the plugin stable and effective when using taunts. Please view the change log provided at the bottom of this post for more details.

| Other information
More changes and fixes will be applied over time and we're bound to crack down on most reports received. Please don't hesitate to report a bug by clicking here OR reporting a bug on one of our discord channels by clicking here!

| Discord rules, in-game rules and approved mods!
| Slight rules update!
Introducing discord rules and approved modifications! We decided it is time to implement lists and rules due to uncertainty on some platforms. Players have been unaware of certain rules or what is/isn't allowed and we thought it was time to at least update our rules before we dedicate a whole load of time to renewing them completely! With staff enforcing rules that were ordered to them, it should be at least be fair to the players that we make clear of the rules instead of waiting around.

Changes can be found below this message:

You can read up and find full descriptions of all rules by clicking here!

| What is going on with the updated rules as promised?
I cannot promise you enough personally that we have and are still working on these rules carefully and collecting the correct amount of feedback on the current rules, we want the best for our player base and also want you to greatly understand that things like this does have a huge impact on not only a forum post but with guidelines, system-wide changes, staff responsibilities, and even more. Such an update this will take time to deliver as clearly as possible.

Creating a thread months ago, I wanted to create a place for you to give your opinion on rule changes and more and guess what? We still want that! We're looking to change up the rules and the entire format and how we're going to execute punishments and collect data. We're hoping to have a server-wide punishment wipe by at least when 1.14 is stabilized on the main server. Punishments will work from severity and not only take effect in-game but on our discord as well. Other information will be released and given over time. Thank you for understanding and our apologies for the huge delay.

| Good bye Daily Quest, Hello Missions!
Wow! who knew that so many players would actually invest so much time into our Daily Quest? not me! that's for sure; although, with that success, we wanted to bring you a better experience to the table. Please welcome the replacement for Daily Quest, Missions! Missions is a huge update we're wanting to work on and give the player base something that is actually worth doing. With mega updates to come in in the future, we'll be releasing updates for this slowly to bring the best experience to YOU.

[​IMG]

Here are a list of differences compared to Daily Quest:


[​IMG]
[​IMG]

and get this! that's only a little bit compared to what we have planned to release in the up-coming weeks/months. I'll let you in on something! WEEKLY MISSIONS! VOTING MISSIONS! MORE!

Of course even though this has been tested thoughtfully, we still believe there might be some nasty bugs we haven't spotted. Please don't hesitate to report these bugs by clicking here OR reporting them on our discord by clicking here!

| Deluxe and non-deluxe bundle information!

Now having previous summer bundles, we have decided to give more options when releasing season bundles with previous season bundles. These bundles will work the same as any normal bundle meaning, yes! they will stay for only a limited time! The difference between Deluxe and non-deluxe is that non-deluxe will feature all the new summer bundle contents and the deluxe will have it all! Comparison can be viewed below all the gifs and screenshots!

| /record IS BACK!
Bringing you a better version of the previous /record. We wanted to perfect this custom plugin that is everything the other record was not! we fixed up the bugs and lag issues, and we would like to introduce something that stands out from the last. From viewing how many server punishments have actually been given to players. Welcome back /record!

Punishments GUI can be viewed by clicking your player head in /shop, clicking on your NPC at spawn, or by typing /record. Thank you :)

Hello PF Community :)

I'd like to discuss our currently displayed rules ( You can view these by Clicking here ) and receive feedback regarding them and what you or any others feel about them. I'd like to change some of them up and make them more flexible/stricter so they aren't so hard/light. Rules that won't be acknowledged for changing are Griefing, AFK Abuse, and Hacked clients. Please notice most of the rules can be considered " Heavy " due to our player base growing every day thanks to you! We're always looking to improve the server and these rules help keep tons of things under control; however, on the other hand, we'd like to see what we can be reasonable about to keep the player base happy in regards to those rules.

We're currently looking into introducing rules for all Peaceful Farms related platforms that we're constantly moderating to give you the best experience you could ask for without being interrupted by rule breakers.

The staff team is already aware of players talking around about how " Staff make up rules ", however, I can assure you everything the staff team is doing is what's being told to enforce.
If you've caught a staff member creating a rule that obviously isn't in our rules/defined rules please sure to report it by Clicking here, and the issue will be handled by our Administration team.

Without having any arguments below, please kindly suggest what you feel with detail can be changed within our rules if it isn't the rules mentioned above. Any players causing drama, arguments, or huge debates about one or multiple rules will be acknowledged and handled by myself or the team.

| Easter Day Update

[​IMG]
Sneak peek of the Easter present hunt map built by @locutus of borg

| Easter Present Hunt

The Event will work quite differently than most of any servers. Each hour, there will be an event call in the chat enquiring you to type "/event" in order to join the Easter Present Hunt Event. Once you type "/event", you will be added to the list of players that will participate in the event. After the minute of notice, all players that were entered in this event will be warped to the Easter Present map and receive 5 minutes to find the presents on the map. You can repeatedly enter the map until you find all 30 presents (this is subject to change). The map is filled with presents containing goodies like mcmmo levels, money, points, and more. The event will be active shortly after this edit is made, enjoy!

| Crate

If you already had a chance to check out the new Easter Crate, you may have noticed an odd line of lore on some of those items. The lines "Blast", "HellForged", and "Springs" represent new custom enchantments we are introducing to the server. Each custom enchantment adds a new enchantment to Minecraft that aren't normally seen. Now, what the heck does Blast, HellForged, or Springs even mean?

Blast - The blast enchantment blows up a 3x3 hole whenever you mine, this powerful enchantment allows you to mine or dig out areas faster than ever before.

HellForged - The HellForged enchantment works quite simply, any item with this enchantment will fix itself while you walk.

Springs - The spring enchantment is one of the more exciting and relevant enchantment to Easter day. This enchantment allows you permanent jump boost while you are wearing this item, allowing you to jump as high as any rabbits can, perhaps even higher!


| Event

There are two events prepared for Easter. One will be similar to what happened before, you can obtain "Easter Bunny's Chocolate" from certain crops at a chance to exchange them for a key! Another event, an Easter present hunt, will come by or before tomorrow, April 1st 5 pm EST. More details about the Easter present hunt will be posted at the time of release.

[​IMG]

The crops you can obtain Easter Bunny's Chocolates from are:
  • Potato
  • Carrot
  • Beetroot
  • Wheat
Now, you may be wondering, why 10 this time? The drop rate on these chocolates are higher than the Leprechaun's Gold, hence you will come by these little pieces of excitement a bit more often while farming to lessen the repetitiveness of farming. If you don't want to wait for these keys to become available, they are always keys up for grabs at the store.

| Sale

With the start of this event, there will also be a 20% Easter sale. The Easter sale will end at the same time the Easter crate keys disappear from the store which is approximately 14 days of this post!

| Saint Patrick's Day Update

[​IMG]

| Event

The event will entail adding chances for the free-to-play players to obtain Saint Patrick's Day Crate Keys. After Valentine's Day Crate's key all rewards not working out, I've been thinking of a better way to provide players with a way to obtain keys even if you are in a situation where you can't purchase one. This time, while manual farming certain crops, there is a small chance that a Leprechaun's Gold will drop from your crops!

[​IMG]

The crops you can obtain Leprechaun's Gold from are:
  • Potato
  • Carrot
  • Beetroot
  • Wheat
The chances for these dropping are quite low at the moment, but I plan to buff the chances accordingly with feedback. If you don't want to wait for these keys to become available, they are always keys up for grabs at the store.

| Sale

With the start of this event, there will also be a 20% sale throughout the whole store. The St. Patrick's Day Crate Keys are available from the point of this announcement. The sale will last until March 15th.

| Feedback

The Valentine's Day Crate raised a couple concerns over how the pets were distributed as it was useless for the players who already got one. This has been changed in the new crate to where you receive a voucher when you win the pets. This means that you can now sell or give away the pets any additional pets you receive from the crate.

Hello! I have some exciting and some unfortunate news for you all. I’ll start with the bad news, Jacob (2020) has decided to resell the server. The good news is that @Kiri (nibble) and myself have decided to purchase the server from Jacob. For the past several days, we have been observing the community and trying our best to get to know you guys! We’re both really excited to be co-owning the server together to make Peaceful Farms a place for everyone. One of the first thing that’ll be done today is getting a set of rules posted on the forums, discord, and in-game. Here’s a short list of what was changed so far
  • Added emotions (slap, spank, poke, stare, & hug commands)
  • Edited the /shop GUI to replace the old website with the new website link
  • /nightvision or /nv that you can purchase separately (Ultimate comes with nightvision)
  • Unlock different name colors at different ranks! /namecolor
  • Reformatted /list
  • 20% Sale
Here’s a short introduction from both of us to help you get to know us better!
| Aury: Hey :) I’ll start off by saying that I’m so excited to work for the server in bettering the community to make PF a safe and fun place. I’m a senior in Highschool and will be graduating this year. I have previous experience in moderating and administering several other servers (if you have more questions on that, feel free to ask). I have 2 dogs and one very fluffy chinchilla. I try to be a very positive person. I’m looking forward to getting to know all of you more.

| Kiri: Hello, I’m Kiri, and I’m also a senior in highschool just like Aury. I’ve recently found this server up for sale by Jacob, and I was instantly interested in it due to how long the server has been up running for. I’m super excited to get started here, and I hope you’ll give us a chance, we won’t let you down :)

If you have any questions for us, feel free to comment it, and we’ll answer you to the best of our abilities!

Best regards,
Aury & Kiri
