Forum Games / Uptrade
« on: September 14, 2020, 06:51:48 PM »
The point of Uptrade is to start with something of little value and trade it for something better over and over until you end up with something very valuable. However, this isn't a traditional forum game! Instead of just typing responses, players actually trade real (in-game) items on the FamCraft server and come here to talk about their progress and experience. I based Uptrade on a real life situation where someone was able to get a house by uptrading a red paperclip in only 14 steps!

How to play:
Find an item or something in-game that seems worthless and ask if somebody will trade you for it. Then take whatever you got, and trade it with somebody else. Keep going until you get reach your goal. That goal could be a specific thing you want, or maybe you just want to see how far you can get in a set number of steps. (you could also play in reverse, start with something valuable and see how long it takes you to end up with something worthless). Make a post when you start the game, and keep us updated on how you are doing (one post per player per game, you can play more than once though, or post other questions/comments).

A few rules*:
1) Follow the FamCraft server and forum rules!
2) No pestering! Players must wait at least an hour (preferably longer) between asking others to trade. (We don't want to be annoying!)
3) Trade the whole item(s), and only that item(s). If you have 7 string, you trade the next person 7 string.
4) It's fine to mention that this is for a game, but don't use that to get better trades. (no conspiracy either)
5) Trades must be for item(s), not famcoins. Chestshops are out of bounds.
6) Item(s) don't have to be items, they could be structures or places (almost anything in-game), you could trade a tree if you wanted! :)
7) try to keep your posts condensed so they are easier to read and not 'spammy.'

Bugs and glitches / Extra? Tokens in Games Server
« on: September 04, 2020, 11:52:11 PM »
I was playing on the games server and got to about 680 tokens. I did some fishing at the pond, sold my catch, then started  typing something. I was kicked for spam (I think there might also be a glitch with the /mail and /me commands on games, but it may also be intentional) and when I came back I started fishing again, then I checked tab and saw that I had ~750 tokens. I may have earned those tokens in the time between checking my balance, but the number seems too high. Can staff please look into it, I don't want to keep the tokens if I didn't earn them.

General Discussion / Maximum fall distance
« on: August 18, 2020, 09:51:49 PM »
After an great deal of testing, I have concluded that, with full, protection IV, diamond armor, feather falling IV, and resistance II (from a beacon), a player can fall 169 blocks, onto stone, and survive. 170 is just slightly too far.

Bugs and glitches / Placing beds glitch?
« on: August 17, 2020, 05:10:38 PM »
When I try to place a bed in the same place that I have previously placed (and removed) a bed, it refuses to place. I've tried it several times in several different ways. There are not any protections in the area that would prevent placing beds, and I can place them in other spots, so I think this is a bug.

Bugs and glitches / Problem With /mail Command?
« on: August 07, 2020, 09:59:25 PM »
Last night I was playing on the wastelands server. I wanted to send a message to an offline player so I typed /help mail to learn how to use the /mail command, and was immediately kicked for 'spamming.' Later, I tried to send a message using /mail send and was again kicked for 'spamming.' I was not using erroneous repeating characters and I only used each command once, so I do not know why I was kicked. Is this a bug with the /mail command, or did I do something incorrectly?

Update: The problem seems to only occur on the wastelands server.
