I am currently slowly working on website updates. You may notice some things working slightly differently, or looking a little different. Then again, you may not.

I have begun using a widget engine that makes the handling of the sidebar items a lot less penisy. I've also implemented a new home page system, given that the one we were using was so out of date it was causing template issues. With the new home page system, it will only detect "new" news posts (as in after it...

Just a quick note here to let you guys know that The Citadel is up to date on 1.7.9 as of now. I ask that you guys let us know of any bugs you might find, but you should fully expect some things not to work (though, after about an hour of testing, I haven't found anything). We're using Spigot - so you should be able to connect from your 1.7.5 clients, however I have no idea how well that works, ha. Optifine is also out for 1.7.9, so you can find that at the usual places if that's a mod you...

Alright, so we have a lot of new changes that was just implemented. First off, we have a completely new economy system! A lot of the old commands work, such as /pay and /bal or /baltop, but there are also a bunch of new commands and features!

The most important commands to take note on are
  • /money help
  • /bank
For a full list of commands head to https://greatmancode.com/display/CRAFTCONO/Commands

This is not all, however! As we have mentioned already, we were...

So, in addition to the looming 1.7.9 update, we're also doing some more major changes to how things are played in relates to the servers economy system.

First and foremost - we're removing the ability to sell to the TC (it's actually already been done). Everything will still be available to BUY, but selling will be disabled permanently. What's the reason for this? Exploits. We've come to the realization that no matter what we do, with the current economy model in conjunction...

In case you guys haven't heard, there was a recent bug with openSSL called the Heartbleed bug. Well, it just to happens that AWS (Amazon Web Services) uses openSSL and was vulnerable to this exploit. AWS is used to handle Minecraft account hosting, so in turn all the Minecraft accounts were at a risk of being stolen through the use of this exploit.

If you haven't already, migrate your Minecraft accounts to https://mojang.com/ and change your password! This is very...

Alright, so first thing's first. We're still working on The Promised Land, and I'll take this opportunity to tell you more about it.

But BEFORE that...1.7.6? Yeah, it's not an incremental update. Which means 1.7.6 clients will not be able to play on 1.7.5 servers - so a good plan of action, for continued play, would be to not update - or update under a different profile using the Minecraft launcher. :)

Anywho, what is The Promised Land? Let me start by answering a few questions...
