There are missing items in the crafting guide like I can't make a silver pole because the item missing is default:iron_ingot its supposed to be default:steel_ingot. And there are some other weapons that use moreores:silver_ingot or moreores:silver_block which are missing items.

Equilibrium will rise again. No enemy faction can keep it down.

Nope no one. I am posting this here for recruitment. If you are a soldier that plays on the CTF server and you are tough and have backbone. Plus you are able to wipe out noobs and are able to run with the pros plz join Equilibrium faction.
All jokes aside I am actually liking this server. I would recommend it to my friends if I had any friends :)

What I made sure not to leave any thing in the screenshot that may show my position. You gonna have to hire agents to join my team and try to get my base position :) Or get your best scouts to try to trace where this photo was taken. and for today I am looking for bases to destroy. You better hope I don't find yours my friend :P

Re: [Server] EMPOWERED FACTIONS (GRAND RELEASE)

While moderating/playing on the Empowered Factions server I’ve noticed that there’s not enough action, besides base raiding (usually done when the base’s owners are offline). I’ve come to the realization that the problem isn’t the players, but that its simply more profitable to raid bases than risk getting killed in combat. So after much thinking I believe Ive come up with a solution to the problem. Intrigued you say? Well then lets get started!

OK right off the bat we need to change the requirements for being the top faction from cash, to overall power, which encourages fighting to lower the enemies’ power. You’re probably immediately pointing out that bigger factions can have more power, giving them an advantage, which is exactly why I’m suggesting we also change the power system:

1. Only factions can have power, not players (so no multiplying power as players join a team).

2. Instead of the power bar reading as: 18/18/17; it will now use a more self-intuitive one: 7/50 (notice the chosen power limit)

3. All factions have equal power limits, no longer do larger factions have a power advantage.

Since power only goes down with deaths, factions will be killing each other trying to get the upper hand! But no - we aren’t finished yet! - we still have work to do! We still need to give another reason for fighting, so I present you with: the Monuments!
“What are those”, you say? Well, I’m glad you asked! This one is a bit long-winded, but if your persistent you can make it!:

1. There are four Monuments, each having a corresponding marker on the HUD (which also displays the current owner), you can also see the beam of light the power beacon array gives off from afar.

2. Each Monument can be claimed with a death-banner, which would be placed on a diamond block in the center of the build.

3. When placing a death-banner it will take 5 minutes to be constructed which will be signified by a progress bar (it can be destroyed while being constructed so be sure to guard it)

4. When destroying a death-banner that’s under construction deal damage to it with a sword or TNT ‘til its progress bar goes down to 0%.

5. A constructed death-banner will have a health bar (40 hp); to destroy it you can damage it with a sword or TNT.

6. When claiming a Monument you can cover your banner with obsidian to make it harder to destroy.

7. If your death-banner is destroyed you lose control of that Monument.

8. For every Monument you control the rate at which you recharge power increases by ½.

9. When a Monument is claimed it’s protected with only that team having access (they can only destroy blocks they place on it though); to blow up the obsidian you’ll have to use a TNT-cannon (TNT will respect the main structure).

10. When your death-banner has been destroyed, you have to wait one minute to try to claim it again (but you cant claim bases that currently have a banner on it).

And that’s it! A two-part solution to the current lack of combat on Empowered Factions!

Two more points:

1. Death-banners slowly regenerate health over time (the same rate as a player).

2. Death-banners will not regen health if that factions power is below 10.

a couple requests:

1. keep the original power meter system, now that i understand what all the numbers mean it works great, but for a new player they wont understand it so maybe when typing in "/f power" you'll get this response:
claims/power/maxpower 4/17/50.

2. Make papyrus and cactus worth more money and add *potions to the shop.

3. every player starts with $1k and a craftguide.

4. when a player starts a faction it automatically starts with 10 power.

a mod request: playeranim adds better animation to players arm and head, the animations are slow (because there server side) but you can see exactly where the enemy is looking, use the latest .zip not github, the github version is outdated: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=12189&hilit=playeranim

a few requests:

1. re-add sheep and rats and sell there spawners at shop (they would be tier 1 spawners so they would give less mese and would be cheaper).

2. make crops geowable by torchlight (but they will grow faster by meselamp light.

3. add watermelons from farming redo and add these to the shop at spawn (ppl can make money off of them):
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=9019

4. add bonemeal: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=16446&hilit=bonemeal

Ive realized that at only 40hp the best swords in the game can 2-shot the death-banner, so i suggest 60hp instead.

BTW: @usename would you consider adding a IRC channel for the server? That way we dont have to actually join the game to see whats going on, amd it will make keeping a track of things going on 10 times easier.
