I just made an forum account on here to even mention the minecraft server is down. lol
I am so mad right now I wanted to do more work on brichtown.
Also about mods
The other is play on runs bukkit with a lot of different plugins, like area defense plugin where gold blocks or diamond blocks make a barrier only the owner can edit inside of.
That plugin also has setting features to add freinds and such to it. They also run other plugins that are coded by one of the server admin, it adds a virtual storage system,
and a shop that runs off of run line commands from the chat menu, so you can buy and sell stuff to other players with virtual cash.
The server also has a rank system, Guest, Member, Builder, Adv builder, Op, and Admin. Guests don't have much, Members are basicly more trusted people, builders are higher in skill and have more functions to server mods
adv builders, even more, then ops which can spawn blocks, boot users etc
These are just ideas and to show what differnt mods/plugins there are. I can always get more info about them if requested. Your also better off talking to me on the server. I am not a big forum guy.
Still hope someone gets the server up soon. birchtown still needs more work!
