    Here is a note before we get into the content of this thread - We apologize for the recent forum downtime. We are finally back thanks to the efforts of our forum host (Liam) and our amazing admin Andilitox. Andi has been with us for quite some time and he is always helping fix things behind the scenes. If you want to thank him for his efforts, leave a message on his page, or consider donating to the forums. You can find the donation page at the top by clicking on "donate." Thanks!

    Now onto the thread! For those of you (mostly pixelmon players) who are unaware, we have an SMP server. SMP is survival multi-player, an unmodded server where the focus is to survive and thrive. Past attempts at revitalizing smp have been unsuccessful, but we have a new solution. Most players argue that smp is not challenging enough, or they get bored, or there is nothing to do. Our new aims to remedy those issues.


    That is where the apocalypse comes in. Our new server will focus on rebuilding civilization after the monsters destroy it. Resources will be scarce - custom land generation will make it so you really need to work to get ores. Mobs will put up more of a challenge, both in strength in ability. Zombies will be able to break certain blocks, skeletons will be able to snipe from far away, and much more! We will also have custom quests and dungeons, complete with rare loot that you will not be able to find anywhere else.



    Luckily for you guys, there is already a bit of a new government setup. The new spawn will be a safe zone that branches off to dungeons, exciting places, and other settlements. To reward previously active players, we will be offering a very special opportunity to play a bigger role on the server. To survive in this server, you will more than likely need to to create a town and live with others. A handful (between 3 and 5) of these towns will be "official" and be connected to the spawn through the use of various routes. Once the server grows, these towns will be able to become nations. The newly founded nations will have the opportunity to join with other towns to create a great new empire. If you are interested in being in one of these main towns, leave a message below! Towns will originally be limited to five players, but they will have the chance to expand to much more. If you want to be an official town, leave a message below with the players you want with you. If you want to be a member of one of these towns but you do not have anyone to be with, post here! Maybe someone could use you in their new city.
    There is a lot of information we have discussed regarding the founding of this new server. If you have any questions/comments/suggestions please post them below. Suggestions (example - suggestions for plugins) are especially welcomed so we can give you guys the best experience!


    Update - 3/12/2015!
    Server development is coming along nicely. We plan to open soon (Hopefully this weekend) under a beta stage -- that is, people living in official towns and people who apply will be whitelisted. While we are under this beta period, players will give feedback on the server (glitches, suggestions, etc) and we will edit the server accordingly.

    We still have a to due list before the server opens. This includes voting, setting up the ranking system, finishing the spawn, and a few other minuscule things. These will be worked on while the server is under the beta system.

    Map wise, we have four towns claimed at this point. Orehunter, sethy1999, rainbowcat, and myself have chosen a town location. If you are not in a town with any of these people (and you would like to be) you need to message me on the forums or own skype. There are a few people who applied for towns, but they haven't received locations. We are only allowing one or two more towns, so be sure to message me as soon as possible! We have one town location that is open, and a second that might be a future site. If you want a town and want to scout the areas, message me. I know there are a few small groups that are interested in a town. You may need to join with another group to meet the player requirement.
