    Update 11/28/2015

    It has been decided that MutinyCraft will add a FTB Infinity Evolved server and a Hardcore Factions server. A prison server is still on the table, but if we add one it will not be right away. A lot of work will need to be done to get the FTB server ready. However, the hardcore factions server should be ready to go very soon after the build event is over that will decide the spawn building/area.

    More information will be coming soon. Expect a dedicated thread to ideas for the hardcore factions server in the near future.

    Original Post


    As I'm writing this there are 5 people online playing MutinyCraft and 4 of them are staff members. It is clear that the popularity of the server has been decreasing steadily over the last year or two and that is something I would like to change. I'm well aware that many people have lost interest in the server and a few have simply lost interest in minecraft altogether. Regardless, I believe that MutinyCraft can become more enjoyable again if we put our minds together and figure out what the server wants.

    There are many ideas that get thrown around, but I can honestly say that I do not know which ones will work. If I knew what the answer was to make the server more popular again I would do it in a heartbeat. That is why I'm writing this post. I need your help and I think if we put our minds together we can move this server in a direction that people will enjoy.

    A few things that I will not do:
    • Reset the current survival server
    • Shutdown the server altogether
    That is really the only two things I wont do. Some people have said that a full reset is the only way to get people to play again, but I have always made it my goal to preserve everyone's history here as best as I can. That doesn't mean we cannot create an additional server that resembles the current survival server for a fresh start. I simply want to always have the original survival server available for people who enjoy having that experience.

    Some possibilities that have been brought up:
    • Copy current survival server rank structure/plugins with new worlds
    • Create a hardcore factions server
    • Create a sky block server
    • Create a prison server
    • Modded server (tekkit, ftb, etc...)
    If you have any ideas post them below! I'm ready to make this server enjoyable for everyone that wants to continue playing here. I just need to know what the players would like to see!

      We aren't making drastic changes to the current server. I made that point clear from the beginning. Not everyone is going to agree with the choice but such is life.

      I wasn't implying drastic changes. Contrarily, I think subtle changes would do the trick.

      Just thought I would throw out my interpretative analysis of the situation.

      A new start is what is gonna help the population the most. I think we should wait until the factions sever post is posted before discussing it more

      At any rate, when is the FTB supposed to be ready? I am actually excited for that! Got some pretty cool ideas!

      I've played a prison server before. Literally the only thing you could do at first was cut trees and mine. If I hadn't been playing there with a friend, I would have not come back that second day.

      I joined this server years ago, RIGHT before factions kinda started dying down. The first faction I joined was Heroes then HeroesxPvP, and I stuck with it for like 2 years until I was accidentally AFK for too long... Honestly, I'm sad that I didn't join soon enough for big raids and such. So I'm going with Factions server

      I requested /hat from you a couple years ago :p
      Oh, btw if you haven't noticed, you're doing this right after the release of Fallout 4 xD Js
      But between playing Fallout, I'll be on here late nights c:

      I remember you ;) xD

      some will go to the og server
      some will go to the ftb server
      some will go to the faction server
      different servers means the population will be separated :(
      one thing i really liked about mutiny was it's community

      I don't know about you but I plan to be active on all of them. Also by og do you mean overgrowth? I didn't see anything about actually being made.

      I figured it was some mod pack or something since I thought someone mentioned something similar to "overgrowth" earlier in the thread. Based on the likes on relevant posts, it appears this may be a regional thing as I know Sadd, Goose, Rhyno, and possibly Garlock all live in the same area.

      Anyway, I can't get infinity evolved to load. I've already uninstalled all the old versions of Java and installed the latest version. Even before that, the direwolf20 and Mage World 2 packs loaded fine. Any ideas what the problem is?

      It's a North America thing. But it's OG itself.

      Any estimate on when either of the servers will be up

      Jigsaw said the factions server will be up shortly after the build competition for the spawn concludes, placing its launch around Jan. 17.

      One server network that I have been on has its chats over several servers so they can all be in the same chat with a pre-fix so you know what server they are on, maybe that would be possible, even if its just the og & factions server.
