  1. Navarr Councilor



    Announcing the sparkling new Qubion Creative Server identity. This is the same Vadact server, with all of your plots, and the same friendly Vadact staff (who will NEVER accept your trees).

    Everything is completely the same except for the name. Hop on to Qubion Creative and see for yourself! You can read more about why they changed their name on their website - Qubion.net

    Premium Changes Effective June 4th

    Premium players will no longer receive an XP Store Discount starting June 4th. Read the Announcement post for more information.

    There also used to be (still is?) a bug where you could place a craftybomb so that it would cover a block of fire and leave an unlit block of tnt that would regenerate every game.
  14. Boburt314 Regular Member

    Yeah /ping! I'm not sure if this was added because of my suggestion or already planned, but YAAS!

    I am dying to find out what Majcou's secret project is! :zbrains:
  15. _LiangFen_ Obsidian

    Really glad to see the /report in MineZ2 becomes useful:). Also i like the /ping command!
  16. _Lefarsi Emerald

    Woo! Lots of great progress!

    I'm sad to see Yawp go, he was truly amazing. :heart: We will remember you forever, Yawp! :(

    The /ping command was added entirely because of this thread: https://shotbow.net/forum/threads/ping.308350/
