Server Announcements / Important Information Regarding Towny Plugin
« on: April 27, 2020, 06:46:47 PM »
Hello everyone,

Currently our Towny plugin is experiencing issues. It is stable, but certain player actions can cause the plugin to crash and prevent the server from starting properly. We would ask that players please refrain from doing the following, and be proactive about preventing it.

Leaving or deleting a town, and then creating a new town within a short timeframe. We are not sure what the exact timeframe is, but at most it is within one restart. Therefore, we would ask that players who leave a town WAIT until the next restart before creating a new town.

Leaving a town and joining a new one does not cause this issue. Again this is something staff is looking into, we just ask that players help us out with this matter. Because this usually causes the server to be offline for extended periods of time, staff will take action as necessary against players who ignore this announcement. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Mod Installation Guide



Overview
 
This guide was written to help educate players about Minecraft modifications, usually shortened to "mods". This guide covers briefly what mods are, why they can be useful, how to install mods, and most importantly, how to follow the Sentinelcraft rules when doing so. It is important to me that this guide is accessible to everyone, regardless of what operating system or Minecraft launcher they use or how comfortable they are with computers. That being said, if anything is confusing or you get stuck, feel free to ask for help!



What are Mods?

Mods are files which alter the gameplay experience of Minecraft. You can think of mods as similar to texture packs, but instead of changing how the games textures look they change some of Minecraft's code. Minecraft mods are usually divided into two categories: client mods and server mods. Client mods are installed onto your computer. Because they are only installed on your computer, the server cannot share that information with other players. You can think of client mods as much like a texture pack. You can see the changes from the client mod, but other players cannot see them unless they install the same client mod. On the other hand, server mods are installed onto the server. Server mods affect all players that play on the server. You can compare server mods to plugins, because they are visible to all players. Most server mods require players to have the mod installed on their computer as well. This is because your (vanilla) client wouldn't understand the (modded) information from the server by itself.

This guide will discuss how to install client mods, because server mods are not compatible with the minecraft software used on Sentinel. This means that when you are looking to get a mod approved, if the mod does something that affects all players (such as adding a new block or item), that means it is a server mod. Remember that you should only install mods which have been approved. If you would like to submit a mod for approval, create a topic in this board. Make sure to follow the proper form, and ask a staff member if you have any questions or are unsure.




Installing Mods

Installing mods can seem like a daunting process at first, but once you give it a try it feels much more natural! The first step is to install a modloader. A modloader is a program that tells Minecraft that there are mods present. It also loads the mods into Minecraft. For modern versions of Minecraft, the two most popular modloaders are Minecraft Forge and Fabric. They have very different design philosophies from each other. In general, Forge is intended for server mods or large amounts of mods (called modpacks), and it includes significantly extra overhead and memory usage to accommodate that. Forge is much more well-known than Fabric, and has been around for far longer. Fabric is a newer modloader, and it has been used more for client mods so far, (although there are some server mods and modpacks for Fabric). Fabric is extremely lightweight and flexible, and it uses no more ram than the vanilla launcher.

People who make mods have different preferences for one or the other, but it is very likely that most mods are only compatible with one modloader. You will have to determine from the download page which modloader the mod is meant for, and plan accordingly. If Forge mods are more your playstyle, you should download Forge. If you prefer the Fabric mods, you should download Fabric. Note that you may be able to install both, but I strongly discourage this in the vanilla launcher, because it will cause a crash if you leave both enabled.


Installing Forge
Step 0. Determine if you are using a cracked (free Minecraft) or premium (paid for Minecraft) launcher. If you are using one of the more common cracked launchers, it is likely that Forge comes pre-installed. Check your version list to see if Forge is available. If it is, skip to step 3.

Step 1. Go to the Forge download page. Click on "Installer." under the Recommended version of Forge. Wait for the end of the ad (I strongly recommend that you install an ad blocker to avoid seeing obnoxious ads), and click the red "skip" button in the top right corner. Do not click anything else on the page, to prevent installing anything malicious from the ad. Alternatively, here is a direct download link to the current recommended release of Forge 34.1.0.

Step 2. Run the Forge installer by finding the file that you just downloaded, and running it. You want the client version, because you are installing this on your computer. The installer should automatically install Forge to your .minecraft folder.



Step 3. Download whatever Forge mods from the Approved Client Mod list that you want to use. Make sure you only download these mods from a reputable site, such as curseforge, or even better use the links provided in the list. Place the downloaded mods in your .minecraft/mods folder. The Minecraft wiki explains here how to find your .minecraft folder on all operating systems. Now in the "version" tab, select the version of Minecraft with the word "forge" in the name. This location can vary between cracked launchers, here is what it looks like on the vanilla launcher. Once that's done, click play and enjoy!




Installing Fabric

Step 1. Go to the Fabric download page. You can choose either the (Windows/.EXE) or the (Universal/.JAR) download, whichever one ends up working for you. 

Step 2. Run the Fabric installer by finding the file that you just downloaded, and running it. You want the client version, because you are installing this on your computer. The installer should automatically install Fabric to your .minecraft folder.



Step 3. Download whatever Fabric mods from the Approved Client Mod list that you want to use. Make sure you only download these mods from a reputable site, such as curseforge, or even better use the links provided in the list. Place the downloaded mods in your .minecraft/mods folder. The Minecraft wiki explains here how to find your .minecraft folder on all operating systems. Now in the "version" tab, select the version of Minecraft with the word "fabric" in the name. This location can vary between cracked launchers, here is what it looks like on the vanilla launcher. Once that's done, click play and enjoy!

Approved Client Modifications / Window Title Changer ~ Approved
« on: January 24, 2020, 07:45:00 PM »
Name of the mod: Window Title Changer (Fabric)

Url about it: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/fabric-title-changer

Why do you think it should be allowed: Window Title Changer (Fabric) allows players to removes some of the annoyances that Mojang has added to the title bar and client brand of Minecraft in 1.15.2. In particular, it allows players to remove:

- The asterisk in the title bar when playing Minecraft with mods installed.
- The phrase "Multiplayer (3rd-party)" in the title bar when playing on a Multiplayer server.

This mod would provide no unfair advantage, because it is only fixing some annoying text on the title screen of Minecraft. It has absolutely no impact whatsoever on gameplay. This text was added in part because Mojang is concerned about the recent $170 million fine paid by YouTube relating to the U.S. Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). Although I understand Mojang is trying to avoid lawsuits from neglectful parents, I would prefer not to see this text.

Approved Client Modifications / ToolTip AutoWrap ~ Approved
« on: January 02, 2020, 05:52:24 PM »
Name of the mod: ToolTip AutoWrap

Url about it: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/tooltip-autowrap

Why do you think it should be allowed: ToolTip AutoWrap prevents item tooltips from going off the screen and being cut off. This happens frequently with items that have large tooltips (such as Shulker Boxes or Auction listings).

This mod would provide no unfair advantage, because it is only fixing an annoying rendering error. Players do not have access to any extra info from this mod, it is only fixing the display of information that can already be seen.

Hi guys! We've been noticing an uptick in players utilizing various "zero-tick" machines on the server. As a reminder, we do not allow abuse of exploits or glitches on the server. These machines exploit a bug in the way that crops (such as bamboo or sugarcane) grow, which causes these crops to grow much faster than normally. They are not allowed on the server, and players who have made these machines will be forced to remove them. Additionally, these farms lag the server, and also ruin the economy balance.

I am making this post because I am concerned about the prevalence of these farms online. Unfortunately, many YouTubers are misleading their audiences by mischaracterizing these machines as "farms". They are not farms, and players should always double-check with a staff member if they have any uncertainty whether something is allowed or not.

Q: Admin, I'm not sure if this machine is a "zero-tick" machine or not. What do they look like?
A: That's a great question made-up person! I will avoid going into too much detail to prevent players creating more of them, but the machines I am talking about have a single crop on a dirt or sand block being pushed rapidly by pistons. Thank you for your understanding.



What the farm might look like, in addition to other components. Not allowed!

Server Announcements / Donator Perks have been re-added!
« on: December 10, 2019, 11:17:36 PM »
Donator Perks have been re-added!

Donator Perks have been re-added, and we now have more to offer!

Unfortunately the original plugin we used for some of the donator perks (VirtualPack) hasn't updated for a long time. We will now start using a new plugin called Portable Crafting Inventories to allow us to not only restore most of our original perks, it allows us to add a few new perks as well such as /Stonecutter or /Loom!

Here is a table of what donators will have access to moving forward:



*Donation information at sentinelcraft.net will be updated as soon as possible to look like this!

As a note, the enchanting table command takes into account how many bookshelves you have nearby. To get the maximum enchantments, you will need to surround yourself with 15 bookshelves.
 
We are also adding a new plugin called Minepacks which will restore the /chest command. $50 Donators will have access to a single chest of inventory space and $100 Donators will have access to a double chest of inventory space. Unfortunately, we won't be able to restore what was inside the previous chests, unless you show us a screenshot as a reply to this topic.

In addition to the above changes, we are also changing the amount of time items will remain on /auction. Auction listings will expire after 15 days going forward.

Due to the 1.15 Minecraft update, which was released today, we added support to this version too, which is more stable in terms of lag. However the server remains in 1.14.4 for the time being.

Thank you as always for supporting Sentinelcraft, we have always been and remain a community server focused on quality of the playerbase.

Approved Client Modifications / ShulkerBoxTooltip ~ Approved
« on: December 05, 2019, 09:12:06 PM »
Name of the mod: ShulkerBoxTooltip

Url about it: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/shulkerboxtooltip

Why do you think it should be allowed: ShulkerBoxTooltip is identical to the already approved mod Shulker Tooltip, the only difference being that it works on the Fabric Modloader instead of the Forge Modloader.

I wasn't sure if I needed to get approval for a mod that does the exact same thing as another mod, but I figured better safe then sorry. This mod would be helpful because it is compatible with more of the other mods that we allow than Shulker Tooltip.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this!

Approved Client Modifications / Mod Menu (Fabric) ~ Approved
« on: December 05, 2019, 08:46:38 PM »
Name of the mod: Mod Menu (Fabric)

Url about it: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/modmenu

Why do you think it should be allowed: Mod Menu (Fabric) is a purely visual mod that allows the user to view the list of mods they currently have installed. It also allows players to change the settings of some of their mods if they support it.

This mod would provide no unfair advantage, because it has no effect on gameplay whatsoever. Mod Menu (Fabric) only lists what mods a player already has installed. It would be helpful because it would allow players to edit the settings of some mods we allow without restarting minecraft.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this!

Approved Client Modifications / Custom Selection Box Port ~ Approved
« on: November 07, 2019, 06:11:23 PM »
Name of the mod: Custom Selection Box Port

Url about it: https://www.curseforge.com/minecraft/mc-mods/custom-selection-box-port

Why do you think it should be allowed: Custom Selection Box Port is a purely visual mod that allows the user to change the appearance of the block selection box (the thin black outline that appears when a player is looking at a block).

This mod would provide no unfair advantage, because it is only changing the appearance of the selection box, something that is already in-game. This mod would help users with large or poor quality display monitors where it's hard to see the current selection box. It also allows for more customization of Minecraft's appearance, to suit individual preference.

Thank you for taking the time to read and consider this!

Server Announcements / PvP Minigames have been re-added!
« on: November 04, 2019, 06:27:48 PM »
PvP Minigames are back to SentinelCraft!

The long-awaited return of the PvP minigames is here! These are classics on SentinelCraft such as Wildwest or Colosseum, including custom minigames such as FlyPvP and PlatformPvP.

All minigames can be accessed from our hub with the /minigames command in-game or at /lobby. For more detailed information, as well as a list of commands, see the minigames guide. The only major addition from the previous iteration is that detailed PvP stats can be found at /lobby, alongside other minigame statistics. Feel free to make use of these stats as bragging rights with your friends! The returning PvP minigames can be found below:

Colosseum - a Free for all match between a maximum of 4 players

TeamPvP - a last team standing match.

WildWest - Two teams fight against each other.

PlatformPvP - a last man standing game in small platforms above lava.

FlyPvP - a last man standing game where you fight others with fly mode.

We at SentinelCraft hope you enjoy the revival of these PvP minigames, whether you are a veteran member who missed them, or a new player just starting out. As always, constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement (maybe even new improved arenas!) are always welcome!

About

Have you ever been minding your own business on Sentinelcraft in the middle of the night, when suddenly you hear the earpiercing sound of the Ender Dragon dying? Or maybe it was the equally ominous sound of the Wither's initial explosion? Well, now you don't have to anymore with...SilentWitherDragon!

Once you pick yourself off of the floor you fell on, download the resource pack attached and say goodbye to noisy jumpscares!

How does it work?

This resourcepack replaces the Ender Dragon death sound (.../sounds/mobs/enderdragon/end.ogg) and the Wither spawn sound (.../sounds/mobs/wither/spawn.ogg) with blank audio files. This means whenever someone does either of those things on the server, no sound plays for you!

Note that this resource pack ONLY changes those two sounds, making it incredibly lightweight. You can even merge it into your existing resource pack, if you know how to do so.

How can I install it?

First, download the attached SilentWitherDragon.zip file to somewhere you can easily access such as your desktop. Next, navigate to your resource pack directory, which will vary with your operating system, launcher, and changed settings. By default on Vanilla Minecraft on Windows, this is located in the %appdata%/.minecraft/resourcepacks directory. On a Mac, this is located in the ~/Library/Application Support/minecraft/resourcepacks directory. On most Linux distributions, this is located in the ~/.minecraft/resourcepacks directory.



You can also click "Open Resource Pack folder" inside Minecraft itself to be taken to the proper directory, regardless of operating system or launcher. Next, copy the SilentWitherDragon.zip file into this folder, and switch into/launch Minecraft. Click on it to transfer it from "Available Resource Packs" to "Selected Resource Packs". Wait for it to load, and say goodbye to jumpscares!

Since June 2018, about 14 months
 
How long have you been a Moderator?
Since January 2019, about 6 months
 
What is your main specialization that stands out and can benefit the server?
I feel I am very knowledgeable about Minecraft in general, as well as our specific setup on Sentinelcraft. Often I end up being the first or only person to answer any questions players may have. Sentinelcraft is a second family to me, and I frequently go out of my way to help others and perform tasks. I am very detail-oriented, and constantly check and maintain our resources.
 
Is there any Staff member that suggested you to apply to admin?
migas94
 
What experience do you have being a Moderator/Admin?
In my time so far as a moderator, I have seen it all. I have helped investigate and punish various types of rule breaking such as xraying, cheating in parkour, afk machines, spamming, bigotry, griefing, and more.
 
I have responsibly reported various bugs and exploits, and was heavily involved in and helped test the server update to 1.14. It was the first experience of helping to update the server that made me feel ready to step up to this role.
 
I have helped mentor and welcome newer moderators, doing my best to encourage them and make them familiar with our procedures.
 
If you have had previous experience, what servers did you moderate?
N/A.
 
What plugins are you familiar with?
I am totally familiar with Logblock, to the point that I have helped update the guide to it. I am also proficient in GriefPrevention, Towny, TownyChat, VirtualPack, BSkyBlock, Dynmap, McMMO, LWC, and BanManager.
 
I have started learning the basics of FAWE and World Edit in general in preparation for this role. Helping Migas with the transition to 1.14 also helped give me at least a basic idea of what every plugin on the server does.
 
Are you currently staff on any other servers?
No.

Guides / 1.14 Guide
« on: August 04, 2019, 09:50:12 PM »
1.14 Guide

Overview
 
This guide is my best effort to walk you through the new stuff, and especially the new changes in 1.14. You are also welcome to look at the Minecraft Wiki's patch notes here if you think this is a bit too long.
 
Welcome to 1.14.4, the final release of the 1.14 Village and Pillage update! Village and Pillage was first announced on September 29th, 2018. 1.14.4 was released on July 19th, 2019 and is the final release of the 1.14 Village and Pillage update.


Changes to Existing Mechanics

Texture Changes!
The biggest and most obvious change by far, is the new 1.14 textures. 1.14 updated the classic Minecraft textures. If you have been playing Minecraft for a long time, you may prefer the textures you are used to. Fortunately, Mojang was kind enough to leave an option to revert to the old textures if you so desire.
 
To change back, press the ''Escape'' key, click ''Options'', then click ''Resource Packs''. Next click on ''Programmer Art'', and it should appear on the right side of the screen. Press ''Ok', and wait for the textures to load up. This may take some time, don't panic!
 
Villager Changes
The update is named Village and Pillage after all, so it's no surprise villagers were the main focus! Because the villager changes are long and complex, and not everyone uses or cares about villagers, these changes will be covered in a separate post. Just to summarize that essentially everything about villagers is different in 1.14.
 
Dyes
Dyes have been updated to be more consistent with each other. This means that bonemeal, ink sacs, cocoa beans, and Lapis Lazuli can no longer be used directly as dyes. They must first be crafted into white dye, black dye, brown dye, and blue dye respectively.
 
Signs
Signs now are split into each of the wood variants (oak, jungle, etc). You can also change the color of the text by right clicking the sign with dye!
 
Smooth Stone
Smooth stone, which was only available in creative, can now be obtained in survival by smelting stone! Stone slabs are now a dark texture that matches normal stone. The old normal stone slab texture now belongs to smooth stone slabs. Update your builds accordingly!
 
Carpet
Non-white carpet can now be crafted similarly to glass, by surrounding a dye with white carpet.
 
Chorus Flowers
Can now be broken by being hit with an arrow or trident.
 
Vines
Vines no longer need a supporting block
 
Phantoms
Phantoms are now scared of cats! Something to keep those sky rats away!

Approved Client Modifications / Litematica ~ Approved
« on: June 29, 2019, 04:21:02 PM »
Name of the mod: Litematica

Url about it: https://minecraft.curseforge.com/projects/litematica

Why do you think it should be allowed: Litematica is a mod that allows you to create, load, and display a 3d hologram of a structure, loaded from a .litematic file. It is essentially a 1.13.2 and 1.14 version of the already allowed Schematica.

Unfortunately, the creator of Schematica hasn't given any indication that they will update Schematica past 1.12. Since they haven't been online in well over 2 months, it is clear they have essentially abandoned Schematica at this point. I am submitting this mod as a replacement for Schematica, which provides amazing functionality and allows players to become better builders on the server.

This mod has the same creator as the already approved Minihud mod, and provides no unfair advantage since you have to build the displayed structures manually.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this!
