-SkyBlock was restored to all its former glory and then some with the addition of Greenhouses.
-Premium users will no longer have to /login in game as long as they are properly logged in to mojang through their client. New premium members will still be required to register (This may change in the future)
-InterstingFish plugin has been integrated to add an extra degree of competition to fishing, a dozen fish species with varying weights are now swimming in the wild. When a fish is caught it will have a tag description specifying the species, weight, caught by, and date caught. (mind the pufferfish shaped tuna)
-Backpacks were added and given out as a special Halloween treat! They allow an additional 18 slots of storage, woot. If you die you will drop the bag with your other belongings, and the attacker will be able to rummage through your junk. There will be a shop in Minas Tirith that sells variable bag sizes, eventually large soulbound bags will be available via donation. No time-frame set on the availability of these. (Support your server! )
-A sort of spector box has been added to the bottom of the homepage that allows you to view the server at http://alanthya.net:23333 Currently you are unable to interact with anything, and it's a pretty basic interface. Not sure what I'm going to do with it, but enjoy it while it's there.
-Trading is back! If you Shift+Leftclick another player it will ask them if they would like to initiate a trade, they must then Shift+Leftclick you and a trading GUI will appear on screen. You can either drag items into the box, or click to add a monetary amount.
-We have undergone many performance improvements over the last few weeks. The biggest improvement is the integration of a MySQL database, the amount of processing requests the software running the server has to handle is drastically reduced, increasing overall performance.
-SQL has also allowed the addition of a stats tracking plugin which tracks everything from blocks placed to fish catched (I know it's spelled wrong, blame spigot code ) These are viewable with the command /stats An achievements plugin is in the works.
-Password recovery via e-mail has been added, when you login you will be requested to provide an email address, add yourself to the recovery list with /email add email@example.com firstname.lastname@example.org They need to be typed twice for confirmation. If are gone for many moons for whatever reason and you forget your password to this awesome server (Shame on you.) you can have a new password generated and emailed to you with /emal recovery email@example.com or if you join the server, simply say "i forgot my password" for instructions in chat. Your email will be used for recovery purposes only.

- We have recently added a Sky Wars map! A GUI has been made for ease of access. /skywars
- Chest Shop has been updated to the latest version supporting the new UUID system. Old shops will no longer work until the shop owner logs into the server. (Sign Chestshops - preferred user shop system not affected)
- SignChestShops now send owners transaction notifications.
- Spooky things.
- Added Faction Territory monitoring. Use the command /fal or /factionalerts for a GUI
- Fixed hearts while kissing in marriage.
- Removed supernatural abilities from creative, shouldn't of had these in the first place.
- Updated mcmmo to include more of the 1.7.2 block types.
- Fixed the slot machines at /warp casino
- Increased Swords max level to 800
- Using /vote in-game now brings up a list of the voting links, but u know u can still come to the website n stuff.
- Set all players to return to spawn on login in an effort to prevent crash loops when a player teleports to a bad chunk and logs back into the corrupted chunk. Please report any instance of teleporting to a location and the server crashing to the homepage for a crash bounty.
- Fixed issue causing certain mob types to drop "broken" diamonds & gold that couldn't be used for crafting. Still accepting trades for broken diamonds.
- Donors can now save 20% when donating with Bitcoin!
- Players can use Bottles o' Enchanting again.
- Added time auto-restarts with countdown. The server will auto-restart 4x's daily at 2 AM, 8 AM, 2 PM, and 11 P EST. You will get a 15 minute notification prior.
- Added Faction territory layer to DynMap
- Factions chat is back!. The latest version of factions had removed this function. You may now access faction chat with /fchat
-Added Item Mail Boxes. Hold the item you wish to mail and use the command /senditem <player> There is a 50 Rupee fee every time you mail someone. Set a SINGLE chest as your mailbox by targeting the chest and typing /mailbox set You can also check your mail using the command /mailbox
-Added a help ticket system. Users can request administrative assistance with the command /helptickets
-Fixed FastCraft workbench crashing issue.
-During a plugins timing review I determined the plugin Appleseed to be causing excessive lag due to the high amount of trees in the database. The server was sending and receiving information to 1000's of trees every second. This is no bueno. I have set a limit to the maximum amount of Appleseed trees you may plant to 10, and I had to purge the existing database of trees as there was no way to pick out inactive players without taking forevarr. Hopefully this helps speed things up a bit.
-Updated mcMMO to include horses into taming.
-Added auto-restart twice daily at 5:45 AM and 2:00 PM EST. There will be a 4 minute warning before restarts.
-Updated AutoSaveWorld to ignore saving unnecessary worlds, hopefully to reduce save-time lag.
-Updated and modified NoCheat to not be so strict on block checks. This should alleviate block break lag issues some players are having.
This is sort of a compilation of several small tweaks/updates/additions over the last few weeks.
-We have implemented plot purchasing. A few floors of the arcade are/we're up for sale, and we have added a new area to the north side of town called Creepsdale. Original plots are going for 150k. They are a 25x25x25 area, and come with protection from lock picking.
-We are becoming more active on Twitter. Follow us @AlanthyaMC Be the first to know about important news and updates, get helpful tips, and occasionally coupon codes for free donor swag. ;D
-I am planning on phasing out /vcheck over the next few weeks. There is a new system implemented into the website to reward users a point for every vote. You will be able to use these points in the donation shop for certain items. I think this will make it easier for everyone to get the items they want when right now, and not have to wait for my lazy ass or rock to come on . Previous vote credit history will be kept, and still be able to be redeemed by old users. Enjoy the new system. There's many kick ass things to donate for.
- mcMMO update.
+ Added "Ice Fishing" ability to Fishing
+ Added "Master Angler" ability to Fishing
+ Added multiplier to Archery XP based on bow force
= Fixed bug where Nether Quartz wasn't included in Smelting or item sharing
= Fixed wolves from Call of the Wild only having 8 health
-Right click with a golden carrot while riding your horse for a nice speed boost.
-Server moved to a new home today (as well as rock, he's single now wooo hoooo).
-New Modem installed with 90-110Mbps download, and 10-12Mbps Upload. This should at least double the capacity of the server and really let us cap out at 50+ without issues.
-Problem with router fixed (old firmware prevented anything past 60Mbps download).
-Server is now inside in the A/C instead of rock's garage. The liquid cooling is really keeping the temps down low now without being overworked (I've got the computer positioned so that the external cooling fans point towards me while i sleep so i get lower than ambient temperatures coming from the server...like my own little air conditioner )
-Lastly, we're completely set up to receive the newer, higher speed connection that will be available in a few months. My ISP tech told me the area I'm at now will be getting a +100mbps Down / +20Mbps connection available in a few months which the new modem, and wiring into the house has all been set up for!
Enjoy and spread the word about the ever popular, and now even faster, Alanthya!
-Fixed issue with loreattributes being angry that there was a health cap for some mobs.
-Latest Bloodmoon came out 9am today and was installed. There is no max health for mobs anymore.
-Fixed a few potion ID's that werent recognized by the arena classes and werent being given to
the player that chose tank, archer, etc...
-Thought i fixed enough and then the region corruption. Thank god of Alanthya that alan picked up his phone and got that fixed. I was convinced it was a java error. He (i still dont know how) found out it was a region corruption. Give him some thanks when you see him...that took over 5 hours to fix.
-CoolDown timer giving errors for nearly every command - fixed. Last update required a purge of old database due to new format

-Changed mcmmo so you will now gain experience from spawner mobs. The XP gain on spawner mobs is 1/2 that of natural mobs, so hopefully some will come out of their cave for a tan once in a while.
