Without a doubt you have read the email recently sent out and have come here for more details. They will be addressed in the order of significance. CLOSURE OF ALPHA Alpha is, without a doubt, one of the oldest worlds on LK. To allow for progress and to free up space on our server, it has come to a point where we no longer can keep Alpha open. So, on July 31 at 11:59 PM EST, we will be removing Alpha for good from our server. For those with homes in Alpha, we ask that you move all of your belongings to another world - Strombolopolous is recommended, since that world is the newest. To eliminate rampant chaos, we have removed the Alpha and Beta portals from the SMP room. This allows us to minimize grief to Alpha, and ensures those players that don't have a home there don't start building there. In that case, in order to get to your home in Alpha, please use your home command - it's /mhome <name> for older homes, and /home <name> for newer homes. OPENING OF STROMBO With the closing of one world comes the opening of another! Strombolopolous is a world with an Egyptian-themed spawn located in the desert, but very close to forested areas and a vast ocean! With Strombo, there is only one rule: you cannot build in the path of the road. Road extensions are a very real possibility in the first few weeks, and building in front of the road could lead staff to move your build to another location. Otherwise, all other server rules apply. /MHOME IS OUT We have moved away from the once-famed /mhome command, and we have gone back to the original /home command. On July 31, the plugin that takes care of your /mhomes will be removed, and your homes could be lost for all eternity! To avoid this, please re-save your /mhomes as /homes. The new commands: /homes - lists homes /sethome <name> - new home /delhome <name> - delete home REJUVENATION OF FORTUNA PLAZA We have moved Fortuna Plaza to a more convenient location in Lucky Valley. The new Fortuna Plaza will have the standard marketplace, plus a second floor for player-owned shops (sections available for no rent to players, but auto-sell chests may not be built there). A new feature for the marketplace is the player-owned shops (available for rent depending on distance from spawn, and shops must be set to auto-sell). The standard nethercave, slime room, and forest are still available. The new Fortuna Plaza is set to open within the week. The player shops are already open. VIP CAPES AND MCMMO EXPERIENCE BONUS We promised it, we're delivering it! VIP Gold & Diamond now have VIP capes available for their personal use! (Spoutcraft required to view capes). Also as stated, MCMMO experience accumulation is now increased to match the VIP tier the player is in. SMP ROOM Earlier in June, we have expanded the SMP room from a simply 6 portals to an overwhelming 19 portals! Not all 19 are used, though - the portals that are in use have water streaming inside it. Fortuna Plaza is now found in the fountain in the back of the SMP room - simply step into the fountain to go to the market. The Nether portal is beside the Fortuna Plaza fountain. SNOWY OWL Lastly, we have a new spawn point in Lucky Valley. Snowy Owl drops you in the middle of the tundra biome with nothing but snow all around you. And, as a tribute to the closing of Alpha, the spawn at Snowy Owl is a replica of Alpha's spawn. SO WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
