As we have mentioned many times before, due to the coronavirus pandemic, we have seen a spike in the amount of players on NetherGames, which is absolutely brilliant. We're honoured that so many people have chosen to play on the network to get through these unusual times.
We feel as though now is an appropriate time to restart the discontinued Plot Contest, which was last held in September 2018.
For those who are unfamiliar with how the plot contest works, it's very simple - every month, we choose a theme for a build that all contestants must incorporate into their build. Your task is easy - to build something on a plot in any of the 3 dimensions (Creative Plots, Mega Creative or Platinum Plots) that follows the theme and submit your plot for review through an online form. A panel of staff members will review all the submissions at the start of next month and announce the winner at around the same time.
The theme we have chosen for our first plot contest since...
During the maintenance period today, we completed some upgrades to one of our oldest sites - the forums!
The forums is approaching its 3rd birthday (XenForo version, the old Enjin site is a little older) and has had an increasing amount of issues in relation to performance (i.e. loading and response time). As such, we have moved the forums to a brand new server with upgraded specs, which should mean that the forums will load faster for all users and be able to handle the high volume of traffic that we have been getting in recent weeks due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Apart from a hardware upgrade, the most noticeable change is the new dark theme! The previous theme had been in use for a little over 2 years and we decided it was time to switch it up with a more modern and flat theme. Hopefully you will agree with me when I say that the new theme looks cooler
