Server Announcements / Stepping down as admin
« on: January 26, 2022, 10:12:28 PM »
Hey people of Sentinel,

As you guys know I haven't been active for the last couple of years. Originally joining the staff team in 2014 I've seen a lot change on our server, and watched our community grow. I've always liked being part of the staff team, helping people when needed and making sure everybody behaves..  ;)

So it's with a heavy heart I'm informing you guys I will step down as co-owner from the server. Over the past years I've had problems with my mental health and this basically lead to me drifting away from the community. It became harder and harder to see Sentinel as a place where I could meet my friends and relax. Because of my inactivity I also felt extreme guilt towards the other senior admins who worked their asses off every day to make this the best possible server ever, which in it's turn caused even more inactivity and so a vicious circle had been created.

I have been doing better lately, and I am getting help to work on my problems. I also left my toxic job which was making my problems worse and I will be starting a new job very soon :). Even though I am doing much better now than let's say a year ago it's still time to step down and make way for other people so they can get their well-deserved promotion.

I am also certain me stepping down will make it easier for me to come back to the community again as a player, because in the end that is what I have been missing the most. Hopefully very soon when I'm doing even better than now you guys will see me online regularly again. After all I still have a lot of projects I'd still like to work on.

As for my rank, I will be becoming 'Special'. And let's be honest, the gray color suits my snow leopard fur well 8)

If you you'd like to talk to me I'm always available on Discord for a chat. Love you all and I hope I will see you soon in-game!

Hello fellow server peoples,

We are happy to announce that as of next Monday, McMMO Monday will once again be active every week!
For the new players that don't know what McMMO Monday is; It's an in-game event that allows every player to get double McMMO XP for 24 hours on a Monday. Every week.

The event will automatically be toggled on and off with a script at 10 minutes past the midnight server restart (Server time / GMT+1)

We hope to see all of you online next monday! ;)

Feature Polls / New Towny Ranks
« on: December 10, 2018, 05:48:20 PM »
Hello players of Sentinelcraft,

Lately we have been getting some complaints that the permissions of Towny are not set up properly, this is somewhat correct. The default Towny Perms that are included in the plugin are not the same permissions the older players remember from our 1.10 Towny set-up.

I am going to review all the given permissions and make adjustments in this next week, but I also thought it would be a good idea to add more towny ranks. Please post a reply on this topic if you have an idea for a rank title and what their ''powers'' should be. Please note that we can't guarantee that these ranks will work. We tried adding custom ranks on 1.10 but Towny wasn't accepting it then.

Some suggestions I have so far:

- Assistant (updated perms)
- Sheriff (perm to towny jail people)
- Builder (perm to build/destroy on plots that are Town owned, not people plots)
- Treasurer (perm to withdraw and deposit in the town bank)
- Co-mayor (perm for everything the mayor has too, but without /t kick to prevent coups)

If you have any suggestions let me know below. Keep in mind we can't add everything that is suggested for the sake of possible Town Griefing.

Server Announcements / New Minigame World & Mob Arena Map!
« on: June 15, 2018, 05:03:55 PM »
Minigames World and new Mob Arena Map: Sentinel!

Hello Sentinelcrafters,

The last couple of weeks the Senior Staff has been updating the server to try to get it to a more relevant state. In case you have missed these changes you can read them here below:
- Community suggestions' topic;
- New Rules, Warps & World Border;
- McMMO balance and update.

We look to improve the server even more to get it back it it's glorious state! Which brings me to announce the next update;

New Minigame World:
Some of you might already noticed this on the Dynmap, but we made a new Minigame World called ''Olympia''. We copied all of our minigames over to this new (smaller) world. This means it will be easier to add new maps for our minigames.

New Mob Arena Map:
We have a new Mob Arena map, built by HvPanda! It will be accessible by typing /ma j Sentinel.
Inspired by the classic SentinelCraft Mob Arena Biomes, HvPanda made a new stunning update. The original Biomes map is still accessible for playing.

Happy playing and see you in the arena!  ;)


Dear SentinelCraft players,

As you all know the server hasn't been in a very active state for the last couple of months. This is the result of several factors, demotivating people to play MineCraft / on our server.
We, the senior staff team, are going to put the server through several changes to try to bring our server back to it's old glorious state. This brings me to the following point: McMMO.

When we updated our server to the latest patch and started a new map, we also wiped all the gained McMMO levels. As most of the older players know we also enabled ''Diminished returns'' on our McMMO plugin, which causes you to gain less xp if you go over a certain amount of xp per 10 minutes. We originally did this to prevent people from grinding the fast skills (e.g. Repair, Acrobatics, Woodcutting and Excavation). However, after some evaluation we came to the conclusion that some players actually like to grind skills and prove that they are the best in X skill(s). Updating this plugin will hopefuly attract new and old players back to Sentinel. All together McMMO will be balanced more, but we will be enabling the option to ''grind'' skills again! Happy leveling :)

See the explanation below for the changes we made:

General settings
  • Removal of ''Diminished returns''. By removing the max xp per 10m people will be allowed to grind if they want to, allowing more xp per 10 minutes than is possible now. To keep the balance some skills will be nerfed or buffed to work better with this update.
  • Animals that are spawned through breeding will now be giving experience (Only for taming, not for combat levels). This has the direct consequence that all animals that can be bred (Chickens, cows etc.) will not be giving combat experience anymore. Go fight that creeper for your precious combat levels!

Acrobatics (nerfed)
Acrobatics is one of the fastest skills to train, especially with Feather falling boots. For this reason the xp gains will be nerfed a bit.
  • Dodge: 120xp > 90xp
  • Roll: 80xp > 60xp
  • Fall: 120xp > 90xp
  • Feather falling multiplier: Unchanged (2)

Alchemy (buffed)
Alchemy is a very expensive and time consuming skill to train, but very valuable once you get above a certain level. On the old map few people had Alchemy on a respectable level so we are buffing the xp gains a bit.
  • Potion stage 1: 15xp > 30xp
  • Potion stage 2: 30xp > 60xp
  • Potion stage 4: 60xp > 120xp
  • Potion stage 5: 120xp > 240xp

Fishing (buffed)
Fishing is one of the skills that actually requires you to pay attention to ''grind''. Everybody misses a fish from time to time making this one of the slower skills to train. For that reason fishing will be buffed a bit, and catching more rare fish will be rewarded.
  • Raw fish: 800xp > 1000xp
  • Raw salmon: 800xp > 1200xp
  • Clownfish: 800xp > 2000xp
  • Pufferfish: 800xp > 1500xp
  • Shake: Unchanged (50xp)

Excavation (nerfed)
Excavation is a skill that no one really trains for fun, but just happens to do so when flattening land. The experience gains are quite high now and for that reason will be nerfed.
  • All blocks: 40xp > 25xp
  • Layer of snow: Unchanged (5xp)

Woodcutting (nerfed)
Everybody remembers the giant woodcutting farms from before we reset the map, allowing you to train woodcutting extremely especially with Tree Feller. For that reason this skill will be nerfed.
  • All types of wood: 70xp > 40xp
  • Huge mushrooms: Unchanged (70xp)

Herbalism (Adjusted)
Herbalism is also one of the fastest skills, because some crops are very easy to power farm (e.g. Sugar Cane) for that reason this skill will be balanced by buffing rarer crops, and nerfing common ones.
  • All crops: 50xp > 40xp
  • Mushrooms: 150xp > 200xp
  • Cactus: Unchanged
  • Cocoa: 30xp > 40xp
  • Melon: Unchanged (20xp)
  • Pumpkin: Unchanged (20xp)
  • Sugarcane: 30xp > 20xp
  • Vine: 10xp > 30xp
  • Lily: 100xp > 120xp
  • Dandelion: Unchanged (100xp)
  • Tall grass: Unchanged (20xp)
  • Blue Orchid: 150xp > 200xp
  • Allium: 300xp > 200xp
  • All double flowers: 50xp > 175xp
  • All tulips: 150xp > 175xp
  • Dead bush: 100xp > 150xp
  • Small grass: Unchanged (10xp)
  • Tall Fern: 50xp > 75xp
  • Azure Bluet: Unchanged (150xp)
  • Beetroot block: Unchanged (50xp)
  • All chorus parts: Unchanged
  • Nether warts: 50xp > 40xp
  • Oxeye Daisy: Unchanged (150xp)
  • Poppy: Unchanged (100xp)
  • Small Fern: 10xp > 30xp

Mining (Adjusted)
The same issue as Woodcutting and Excavation applies to this skill as well. The fact that you have a super effective active skill (Giga Drill breaker) allows you to level this skill incredibly fast. Since Mining is an essential part of this game we will be bringing down the xp values for common blocks a bit so you actually have to go into the depths of a cave to level up by finding rarer blocks.
  • Coal ore: 100xp > 75xp
  • Diamond ore: 750xp > 1500xp
  • Emerald ore: 1000xp > 1750xp
  • Ender stone: 30xp > 15xp
  • Glowstone: 100xp > 75xp
  • Gold Ore: 350xp > 300xp
  • Iron Ore: 250xp > 150xp
  • Lapis Ore: 400xp > 300xp
  • Mossy cobblestone: Unchanged (30xp)
  • Netherrack: 30xp > 15xp
  • Obsidian: 150xp > 250xp
  • Quartz Ore: 250xp > 150xp
  • Redstone Ore: 150xp > 100xp
  • Sandstone: 30xp > 15xp
  • Stone: 30xp > 15xp
  • Hard Clay (Terracotta): 30xp > 15xp
  • Packed Ice: Unchanged (50xp)
  • Prismarine: 70xp > 100xp
  • Red Sandstone: Unchanged (100xp)
  • End bricks: 50xp > 30xp
  • All Purpur blocks: 50xp > 30xp

Repair (Adjusted)
Repair is the fastest skill you can train from all the skills, if you have the resources. Since level 500+ repair is one of the most useful parts of McMMO we want to make sure training this skill is not only for the wealthy people on the server. This means we will be buffing some of the common materials and nerfing some of the more expensive ones. All numbers below are multipliers.
  • Base xp: Unchanged (1000xp)
  • Wood: 0.6x > 0.75x
  • Stone: 1.3x > 1.5x
  • Iron: Unchanged (2.5x)
  • Gold: 0.3x > 1.75x
  • Diamond: 5x > 4x
  • Leather: 1.6x > 1.75x
  • String: Unchanged (1. 8x)
  • Other: Unchanged (1.5x)

Taming (Buffed)
Taming has never had an impactful role on our server, while it's actually one of the strongest PvP & PvE skills in the game. We'd like this to change by buffing this skill.
  • Wolf: 250xp > 750xp
  • Ocelot: 500xp > 1000xp
  • All horse types: 1000xp > 3000xp
  • Xp gained by wolfs in combat: Unchanged

Combat (Adjusted)
With the possibility of training taming with bred animals, we have to make sure this is not abused to train combat skills with. This leads to the removal of all combat xp gain from all animals that can be bred (Cows, chickens etc). To compensate for that hostile mob xp gains will be slightly buffed. All numbers below are multipliers.
  • All animals that can be bred: 1x > 0x
  • Creeper: 4x > 4.25x
  • Skeleton 3x > 3.25x
  • Spider: 2x > 2.25x
  • Zombie: 2x > 2.25x
  • Slime: Unchanged (0.5x)
  • Ghast: 3x > 3.5x
  • Pig Zombie: Unchanged (0.25x)
  • Enderman: Unchanged (0.05x)
  • Cave spiders: 3x > 3.25x
  • Silverfish: 3x > 3.25x
  • Blaze: 3x > 3.5x
  • Magma Cube: Unchanged (0.5x)
  • Iron Golem: Unchanged (0x)
  • Wither Skeleton: 4x > 4.5x
  • Witch: 0x > 2.25x
  • Wither: Unchanged (0x)
  • Ender dragon: 0x > 4.5x
  • Endermite: 2x > 2.25x
  • Elder Guardian: 4x > 4.5x
  • Guardian: Unchanged (0.25x)
  • Shulker: 2x > 2.5x
  • Snowman: Unchanged (0x)
  • Squid: Unchanged (1x)
  • Zombie Villager: 2x > 2.25x
  • Zombie Horse: 1x > 0x
  • Vindicator: 3x > 3.5x
  • Illusioner: 3x > 3.5x
  • Polar Bear: 1x > 2x
  • Parrot: Unchanged (1x)
  • Bat: Unchanged (1x)
  • Stray: 2x > 3.25x
  • Skeleton Horse: 1x > 0x
  • Evoker: 3x > 3.5x
  • Husk: 3x > 3.5x
  • Villagers: 1x > 0x

All the changes above are still under review and might be changed. If something seems out of balance it will be adjusted accordingly. We hope by removing the ''Diminished Returns'' and balancing the xp gains people will be motivated again to get leveling! If you have any comments or points for discussion please say so below.

Non-Minecraft Topics / The ''I'm going away/on a vacation'' topic
« on: January 12, 2017, 08:30:48 PM »
Heya SentinelCrafters!

After my old Topic in the Lux Aeterna sub forum is gone, I obviously need a new topic to announce when I won't be logging in for a while :P.

If you're going away for a longer period of time, you can post a reply in this topic if you want so your friends don't start wondering if you're dead.

Welp, that being said. I will be in Austria with my internship from tomorrow - January 25th. See you all back on the server soon :)


1.10 Update / Mumble vs. Discord
« on: October 28, 2016, 05:20:02 PM »
Heya SentinelCrafters,

Lately there have been some discussions about whether we  should keep using Mumble or switch to Discord for our server's voice chat.
The last time the voice chat was discussed, the community also had a say in this. So, we're asking all of you guys to vote on the poll above!

The poll will remain open for 3 days. If you want to explain your vote you can do so in a comment below this post.


1.10 Update / Poll: Temporary Transition World?
« on: October 17, 2016, 06:30:35 PM »
Heya SentinelCrafters,

At the time when I'm writing this new poll, the results on the old poll are getting clearer every day. The majority of the players voted for 'Yes' to updating the server with 40 to 6.
Because of this fairly big difference we're already putting out this new poll to see what the players want during our transition to the new world.
However, nothing is certain yet! If the first polls ends up being 40 to 41 things can go a very different way than described in this topic.

Currently there are 2 options:
  • A temporary transition world, where the staff will test out new plugins & permissions. You can be a part of it and in the meantime play on the map.
  • No temporary world so you can focus on finishing your last things on Pern. When we update, the new plugins and permissions would be tested already by staff and you can directly start playing on the new/final map.

Let us know what you want! This poll will end on the same day as the previous one.

~Sentinel's Staff

1.10 Update / Poll: Should We Update?
« on: October 15, 2016, 12:24:18 AM »
Heya SentinelCrafters,

As you probably know, there have been a lot of discussions about updating the server to 1.10/1.11.
Since this will have a lot of consequences for every player on the server, we're putting this to a vote so everyone can voice their opinion.

Before you vote make sure to read all the recent topics in this sub-forum so you're up-to-date on everything that has been discussed.
There's also an option to give us suggestions/ideas/features for the new server. Check out the links below.

Main post - http://sentinelcraft.net/forum/index.php?topic=6390.0
Plugin suggestion format for new server - http://sentinelcraft.net/forum/index.php?topic=6396.0
Landmark requests - http://sentinelcraft.net/forum/index.php?topic=6397.0
Other matters - http://sentinelcraft.net/forum/index.php?topic=6398.0

~Sentinel's Staff

Due to recent changes in permissions that blocks the usage of /lb lookups from members (except for /lb tb), it is no longer allowed to use logblock to track dynmap-hidden members. This now means you can not use any command to track members. If they're hidden on dynmap you're out of luck.

Senior members/donators+ will still have access to logblock lookups. This means SM/Don+ is still allowed to use logblock to track other SM/Don+, just not on regular members.

Non-Minecraft Topics / Games for your mobile phone
« on: June 03, 2015, 05:25:26 PM »
Howdy SentinelCrafters,

I thought it would be a funny idea to create a topic where you can share your username for games you can play on your mobile phone! This way you can have some fun on a different game but with the awesome people of this community :). If you would like your name to be added to the first post, simply reply on this topic with the name of the game you're playing, and your in-game name there, or send me a message on MineCraft.

If you don't have a mobile phone but would still like to play with someone, I suggest you download a program called BlueStacks. It's a program that allows you to instal Apps from the Google play store. You'll need a google account to use this and unfortunately not every app works (properly).

List of games:
Clash of Clans - Available on Google Play, Appstore & BlueStacks

Name of the clan: Leopucks (You need to unlock a ''clan castle'' first before you can join. When you decide to join tell us who you are in your request letter.
Current people in the clan: Neon, Alex360, Haloman, Zarosi, Romaze, Bricer, Eagler,Bobcreeper47,DanielyMery,...
Summoners War - Available on Google Play and Appstore. Not yet confirmed if it works on BlueStacks

Richgotya - Richgotya
Pauizz- Pauizz
Migas94 - Migas94
QuizUp - Available on Google Play, Appstore or visit the official website. Mobile versions are recommended.

Server Events / Maze Runner Event!
« on: March 25, 2015, 06:15:52 PM »
Maze Runner Event

Hello SentinelCraft players! We bring to you a new event; Maze Runner!

At this event you have the opportunity to find awesome prizes within the maze of Lux Aeterna. Finding these prizes will not be an easy task, however! Monsters will try to eat your face while you traverse the many pathways of the maze, and let's not forget you'll have to find the hidden chests before other players do!

Some extra information:
- PVP is disabled in the maze.
- Mob spawning is enabled in the maze... Obviously!
- Traps within the maze are currently not a thing, might add some in the future... *Evil laughter*
- There is no exit! The point is not to find the exit to the maze but to find as many chests as possible before the time is up. The chests will be hidden at random locations in the maze.
- Players will have 10 minutes to look for as many chests as they can find. Some may be easier to find than others, so be swift!
- Players must bring their own armor, weapons and food to withstand the horrors of the maze!
- Playing this event is your OWN risk. Make sure you have enough money on your balance, so that the maze doesn't permanently devour your stuff when you die!
- There need to be at least 4 players for the event to start.

To play this event you must follow these rules:
- Flying must be disabled.
- No potions
- No (enchanted) apples
- No enderpearls
- It's not allowed to use one of the following to locate chests:
   o Minecraft Maps
   o Dynmap
   o Rei's Minimap
   o Logblock
(If you're caught breaking one of these two rules you'll be 'banned' from all future events hosted in Lux Aeterna.)

- You can only participate if you're at the maze when we start the event, so be prepared! Grab your gear in advance!

Happy playing!

~Lux Aeterna
