As of today, we are starting a trailer competition open to the public. The contest will be on making a trailer for our server, we've chosen that it's best for our community to make it because they can showcase what they best like about NetherGames to new players. If we receive good entries, the winning trailer may even be shown on YouTube ads or our website. The winning entry will get a free Legend rank in return for making the video. If you are interested in entering, here is what the trailer will require:
Display of our IP address and port (play.nethergames.org | 19132).
Must be at least 30 seconds long.
Showcase of our main lobby. (recommended to remove your inventory and hand in settings when filming non-pvp scenes.)
As of today, we have merged with a server called “GameCraftPE” which had approx. 100 players on average before the 1.2 update.
The update has indeed affected a lot of servers, and we are looking for servers to merge into the network because we are, as the name implies, “Better Together”.
The server that is joining us means we have a new Executive staff by the name of Driesboy and several new staff joining us.
If you play on the NetherGames Network this doesn’t affect you other than more new players joining. We also may be adding some new games that GameCraftPE previously had.
This thread will explain everything we plan to do during the Better Together Update.
Xbox Live Accounts
Xbox Live accounts do change a lot, however our developers have been working hard on a solution. If your original username is now taken on Xbox Live you can now use /switch and enter your old username and password to have all your minigame stats, ranks and plots moved to your new Xbox Live account.
Less Players Since some players cannot play servers due to the new sign in to play feature, this means we will have less players and this has affected every other server. We are hoping this won’t affect us too much and we are just going to wait for now until further decisions.
New Features The good side of this update is new GUIs, new pets and heaps of new blocks! The new GUIs have been very exciting and bring so many new opportunities to our servers. For those...
Big projects need big plots.
That's exactly why this month, we're introducing Platinum Plots.
So what are Platinum Plots?
They're just like Creative Dimension and Mega Creative - only bigger. You can claim 5 enormous 150x150 plots - that's a lot.
What is this going to replace?
This is going to replace the current plot limits in place. At the moment, if you buy the Ultra rank, you get 6 plots, Emerald rank - 12 plots, Legend - unlimited. Platinum Plots replaces this - all 3 ranks will have access to this new world. The Creative Dimension and Mega Creative plot limit remains at 2 for all players.
Because plot contest winners will have access to Platinum Plots, the new prize for winning the plot contest will be access to Platinum Plots.
Is there a catch?
Like all offers that sound too good to be true, there's a catch. Platinum Plots will only be available to VIP players (Ultra, Emerald & Legend), plot contest winners and NetherGames builders...
