    Hey guys,

    I have been thinking today that i really cant remember the last time i was properly online for an extended period of time !
    As most of you will know, i have alot of school work on this year and if i am to achieve my personal targets i need to concentrate alot of my time on doing work rather than games, in particular, as i do the sciences, i have to spend alot of time learning equations, practical methods and all sorts of processes (which in all honesty i dont mind as i love learning about them, but trust me when i say there is alot to remember !). Recently i have had to revise/prepare for a number of major (and some minor) mock exams, and so haven't had much time to be on the server Another thing that's dragging me away from both school and games is university, its so stressful! at the moment im in my second year of sixth form and have begun applying for a place at university next year, and im glad to say im almost done, but for the past few weeks I've been trying to end my personal statement which has proven very difficult (hopefully done today ), trying to finalise all of the paperwork, signatures and choices has consumed alot of my time.

    Id just like to say that im really sorry that I've not been on to help out as much as i should, after being promoted to moderator, i feel that im not working as hard as i should on the server and that Beachside hasnt been making as much progress as it should Its good that the town has a new CSO and im hoping that work should progress further than just me working on smaller tasks every now and then, we've got some big changes planned to the town which i hope we can complete when im nex available for a few hours

    Anyway, im sorry for not being on as much as id like, but school work does come first, and im hoping i can get back on really soon

    It's a nice idea and all, but community builds are supposed to be built voluntarily by the entire community, with everyone doing little bits and bobs (take the Woodbridge Roller Coaster as an example), not just a select group of people. Community builds are already managed and supervised by any available Mods and Darren, so there isn't really room for anyone to manage builds. The point is that anyone can help out on a community build whenever there's one being built, and the forums are a great place to look for any news.

    Halloween will soon be upon us and now while I’m sure some of you have no interest in celebrating Halloween at all, I’m sure there are plenty of people that do want too… So as Halloween this year is on a Monday, we shall be having a Halloween weekend leading up to the 31st, we all need some fun right and I’m sure those that don’t like Halloween can at least try and join in? Now here’s some stuff you need to know:[list]
    [*]I need everyone to help spice up the towns with a Halloween feel, I can help with the cobwebs and pumpkins but at least try get the pumpkins yourself and don’t hassle me to place the webs
    [*]A bunch of builders who can build be a very good big haunted house with the idea of having Mob Arena in it, so you go through the house and as you progress through it waves come out!
    [*]Halloween building ideas!
    [*]There’s more I want to say but you’ll have to wait and see!

    Nevets 91 reacted in 09/10/2011 - New Test Build Area Open!   
    Have you ever been EAST on Yams and told to go back and never to return?

    If so today's your lucky day... as of today we have opened up a new area, this is somewhat of a trial and does not have a full name yet. For now we are calling it the "test area"... some names could of course be "builders box" "black mesa" or "ASEC".... "Aperture Science's Enrichment Center" but thats a bit of a mouthfall!

    Anyway basically for a "small" fee (normally 2 diamonds), if you are a [b]non sandbox member[/b] you can build whatever you want (as long as it does not offend) in this area for a period of 2 weeks, with a week after that to show people around and take it down before a refresh of the map happens... lets call this "reset mode" like in the film Cube!

    All you need to do is go NORTH along the rails from spawn until you hit the last station.. you'll know when you are there. Read the info in the left hand building (office of enquires) and place a sign on the board with your name + date.

    We will then approve you or not, if you have not been approved your name will not be up. If however you have been approved you will find your name on the sign board in the right hand building (office of permisison), you will be given a date from which you can start building, before this date you must pay the build fee.

    As explained this is kind of a trial, it's up to you the community to see if you can be creative while not offending anyone, including but not limited to racial, sexual, discriminatory and hate structures.

    The way it's currently set up may change... but let's see how we can do first. Trial and Error!

    Any abusers will be subject to the full force of YAMS.

    Also please do not destroy land or build etc anywhere North unless it's in this area and you have been approved, that includes but not limited to mining... Thank you.

    [color=#222222]A: That's why it's in quotes, we realise it's not small and that’s the joke of it! I'm sure you can try and buy diamonds from other players, that's why there's no alternative, because you have the whole community to trade with.[/color]

    Dear all,

    Today Darius will be stepping down as a Moderator on YAMS. It's been a great pleasure working with Darius, I remember a long time ago when he joined YAMS and was just a member, he was trying so hard to get promoted; on the 16[sup]th[/sup] of April 2011 he applied to be a CSO ([url="http://www.darrenstraight.com/minecraft/index.php?/topic/54-12042011-community-support-officers/page__view__findpost__p__198"]see post here[/url]) and I can’t exactly remember of the top of my head if he got the job straight away or shortly after but he was certainly one of the first.

    In June 2011, he was again promoted this time to Senior CSO. However he still was trying very hard to be a Moderator, that’s the real job he wanted, however on various occasions when I asked the staff members at the time if we should promote him the answer was mostly No. So unfortunate for him he was to carry on being a Senior CSO.

    A little while later and various changes happened on YAMS, one of which being that Darius let’s say matured… he started to shine through and show that he could get a job done. So it was time, time for him to be promoted to a Moderator, while at the same time becoming known within the world of YAMS as the Redstone master!

    I would like to say Thank You Darius for everything you’ve done in YAMS and for those donations towards server costs. You always have a place here on YAMS and as a Thank you, you shall be placed in the Contributor Group, I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do to say thank you! Unless you want a free copy of Portal 1 on steam?

    I hope all goes well in your life and I hope we shall see you around soon, what’s Dan going to do with you in the Redstone Business? You are joint partners remember

    Take Care Darius.


    Some wise words from Darius, especialy of use for those of you applying to become a CSO!

    Hey all,

    As most of you know , ive had alot of problems and difficulties IRL for the past 3 months , so sadly after playing YAMS 6 months , it is time for me to throw in the towel .

    I remember how i was when i first logged on the server, pretty immature and childish. I really wanted to become a CSO, but the staff didnt believe i could acchieve that. I worked hard and got very far (moderator as you see right now) Made LOTS of friends! (love u guys!) and learned alot from everyone! I will not forget everything (epic banhammer fests and community events )

    Remember guys, if you work hard and show dedication, you can acchieve anything... This counts for everything from game to real life...

    Nevets 91 reacted in Server Rules   
    General rules:
    Be a part of the community. Participate with others. Offer your unique talents to assist other players and they will likely offer you help in return. Be polite and choose your vocabulary wisely, no swearing either spelled out, using asterisks or acronym abbreviations. If you are unsure about whether or not you can say something then just choose another way to express yourself. Respect other people’s property. Do not enter houses or check chests that are not yours unless it is clearly marked as being a public chest (quest, minecart, public farm and game chests etc). Everyone works hard to make impressive builds. Please do not destroy other user's creations. Earn your belongings by working for them no stealing please, we will catch you. Mine for your own materials. Do not steal or pick up other's dropped inventories when they die, unless you are asked to do so. Anything that gives you an advantage over everyone else is considered cheating. No exploiting and/or hacking, including but not limited to mods/texture packs used for the following: Flying, Speed, Spawning, Cloning & X-Ray. Use public transportation to get around or find hidden warp signs, no need to ask us to teleport you to places. Do not ask for items to be spawned or for the time of day to be changed. You are welcome to use potions, enchantments and ender pearls but please do not use them to break the rules or access restricted areas that you wouldn't normally be able to access. We dont want to take them away from you! Do not wear inappropriate skins, we are a family friendly server. Please do not use the YAMS Network in all its forms, to advertise or solicit any products, services, servers, funds or donations. This is not the place to advertise. General spamming of server chat is not allowed. "Spam" includes, but is not limited to, repeating sentences and/or splitting short sentences into several lines unnecessarily. Building rules:
    Before being able to build you must complete a quest to show your enthusiasm in wanting to participate within our community. There is more information about this once you join. In our current YAMS main world, we only build our houses along the sides of the 4 main rails (Blue, Green, Yellow and Red). Along the rails there are side openings (stairs/paths), each side opening leads to a plot section where you can build your house. You should always take the first available plot section. If you don't like the look of that section, try a different rail, but always take the first available plot. You should build a path from your house to the gravel path at the side of the tracks. You should not build your house more than 30 blocks away from the rails. You should also not build your house too close to the rails so others can build near you. Your house should be no bigger or higher than 21x21x21 blocks, this includes your house, out buildings, farms, decorations, furniture, balconies and roof edges. You may have a basement, but it must not exceed the perimeter of your house, or be more than 11 blocks down. If you encounter a cave it is expected that you will ignore it apart from lighting it up to prevent mobs spawning and carry on with your building. If you encounter a Dungeon while building don't take the items or alter it, instead let a member of staff know, we will remove it for your convenience. If you encounter a ravine under your house, please ignore it and build around it. Be creative in your house designs, try and use a mixture of different materials that go well together rather than just using one block type. You can always check out the demo houses for examples. Try and shape your house, don't just make it tall and square. No tree houses or trees on top of your house, they overgrow and overshadow everyone else. No houses made of dirt, gravel, pumpkins, melons, TNT or sand. No waterfalls or other such things on the exterior of your house, you can have showers/baths etc inside your house, just keep them tidy. We wouldn't want you smelling now… No lava falls or other such things on the exterior of your house, you can of course have lava trash areas etc inside your house just keep them tidy. We wouldn't want you being untidy now would we… You can build on the edges of waterways but don’t build your house fully over or under water, this is so we can still have boat races. Farming structures are included in your allotted perimeter, and any animals must be kept to a minimum of two of each type. Breeding is permitted but must not be left overcrowded when you log out. No floating sky buildings or unsupported structures No mob traps as this is an unfair advantage and also lags. Dont leave redstone clocks on as this causes lag for other players. If your building is found to be unsuitable you will be asked to alter it, we will give you tips. If you become inactive by not coming on in 2 months and taking part we may remove your structures to make space for new players. If you build your house somewhere and then decide you would like to move you will need to contact Darren to discuss your plans before moving. Only 1 house per person. If you decide you would like to construct a public building please post your idea in the community building project section of the forums. Once you have picked a spot to build, make sure you type /sethome in chat to set your home location, so you can use /home to return there from anywhere else on the server. Environment rules:
    We like to keep all worlds nice and tidy, please respect the environment and landscape by keeping it looking naturally tidy. Dont go around just randomly altering landscaped areas unless its where your house is being built. Always keep it tidy, you may bonemeal around your house. The only place you can mine is the mining world, you can find a mining portal in spawn. Please remove entire trees, not just the bottom few parts of the trunk. Once you have removed all pieces of wood, the leaves will fall on their own. You should find at least one sapling from the dying leaves which you can then replant to grow a tree for future users. If you find any floating tree tops or random holes in the ground please fix them, it's a team effort. Gravity is unique in minecraft but there’s no need to defy it. Please do not build skybases or unsupported balconies and bridges. Dungeons can be found all over in the mining world and while we don’t mind your taking the mossy cobblestone, and items from the chests, we do ask that mob spawners be left intact for future use. NPC Villages should not be modified in any world, you may take from the chests in the mining world but not in the normal world. Pixel art, including statues and lettering is not allowed unless authorised my a Moderator/Admin. The Railroad System is intricate and will take you everywhere you need to go. The tracks can only be altered by Darren for transportation purposes and are subject to change. Occasionally they do get griefed and we may ask for your assistance in replacing missing tracks. This is the only exception to the rule. Mining world rules:
    The only place in YAMS where you can mine is in the mining world. You can find a mining portal in spawn town. While there you can use /mvs to return to the mining hub and /home or /spawn etc to get out of the mining world. Please act responsibly when in this world as per YAMS rules. You should not build in the mining world, this includes but not limited to: Homes, mining bases, stairs, ladders, farms, mob traps, untidy markers and modifying NPC villages/witch huts/temples. Try and keep the surface of the world nice and tidy. No leaving random blocks around unless it's to cross over something or get up high. Remember keep it tidy. No leaving floating trees around, it's ugly and lazy. When making a mine shaft don't just dig straight down. You may use TNT, however please use it sensibly. Furnaces, crafting tables and chests may be used however leaving items in them is at your own risk no one else's. This includes world resets. The mining world is the only place where you can take from NPC Village chests providing you don't modify the village. If you find a stronghold please don't mine everything! It makes the place look ugly and is unfair on people who have never seen a stronghold. Take only what you really need and if you really want to be helpful tell others how to get there, after all when theres a map refresh there will be another chance to get more brick. Nether world rules:
    Hello fellow adventurer. Many people come here but not all have returned home. For this reason please do not set your home in nether and please abide by the rules below, they are for your own safety, pay attention! :)
    YAMS server rules apply so please be good. Strictly no building, death awaits those that do. Mine away from the portal but not to far away. Dont be greedy rush mining the ghasts will get you. No really don't be greedy, only take what you really need. Don't tell other players how to find the nether they must find it on their own just like how you did. Creative world rules:
    The creative world is not the main part of YAMS, it's an addition to YAMS so you can test your ideas out and show your creativity with others easier. From time to time this world may reset. There is also a plot expiry time of 2 months, so if you become inactive for 2 months your plot will be removed. Each player is allowed one plot, you can however invite others to help on your plot by giving them permissions with a command. This world should be treated with respect don't abuse our trust, remember YAMS server rules apply as we are a family friendly minecraft server. Buildings should be family friendly. You can not /sethome in this world as its not the main world of YAMS, we still want players taking part in the main world. The only way home from this world is to die in lava or such. You will lose all expeirence levels and items you have on you so make sure you leave them at home. You can find more information and commands in the creative world, for which the portal is located at the bottom of spawn tower. Multi-person account rules
    Any violations will be held accountable to the Minecraft account (username). This includes: Multi-person accounts. Accounts temporarily used by others (including but not limited to friends and family). Any account that has multiple people actively using needs to inform an Admin, Moderator or CSO. If you fail to abide by this rule we will take it as your account is only used by you and no one else. Each member of a multi-person account must have a separate user account on the forums if possible. In cases of a multi-person account being responsible for a violation of the rules we may try to make contact with all members using the multi-person account to find out what happened in cases where the rule violation has occurred while the account is offline. We may waive this in cases of more serious rule violations. Lastly you may only use one account on YAMS to play, if you get a new account and want to start using that one instead, please inform us straight away. Name changes
    If you change your in game account name, please let us know on the forum as soon as possible. We will then change your forum name to match your new name. Approved mods
    It has recently come to my attention that text signs within minecraft are now causing an even bigger fps drop than before, with this in mind I have officially approved Optifine as one mod which can be used in YAMS as Optifine improves performance issues considerably, especially within spawn. Please respect this allowance, do not abuse my trust, do not use it to gain unfair advantage over others. Please note that the rules above may not cover every eventuality and the YAMS staff reserve the right to take action against players as and when we see fit, and to modify the server rules without notice.
    Have fun, be a part of the community, play nice!

    So here's a question... since 1.9 is apparently right around the corner, are we going to go through a similar process again? Especially since it seems that snow is missing in 1.8, and wont show until 1.9.

    I wouldn't mind a revisit to the Island, but it seems like an awful lot of work for you

    I don't see why not!

    I have no problem with doing the work as long as people have fun! While still respecting the rules and appreciate the work I put into it.

So, I'd like to give everyone on the server a well earned pat on the back. Well done chaps!!!!

    I don't see why it's got so bad. I enjoy the vanilla style, friendly attitude on this server and if you *want* to grief then there are plenty of free roam servers where anything is acceptable with a quick google search. I've really enjoyed walking around and seeing pairs/groups working together to build/collect etc. Hopefully people will realise what they get with YAMS and stop being silly.

I've finished in the Sandbox, and have recently(ish) moved to Woodbridge and set up a home(with basement!). I've had a go at the Gauntlet, and am really enjoying my time spent on YAMS.

    Haha last night I didnt come on much as I wanted a little break before the update, so I watched 5 episodes of Torchwood in a row!

    Good timing or what! Though I was going to watch the other 5 today!

    Last time there was update I didn't sleep much, making sure everything was up and ready... so don't be shocked if Bukkit updates but I dont straight away, I want to do this right and me getting no sleep isn't going to help me or anyone else.

    Here's my checklist (crossed out means done) - this has changed somewhat and a lot of it depends on when bukkit is out.[list]
    [*][s]Double and triple backup[/s]
    [*][s]Save all buldings to be cut out as schematics (musseum, shadow mosses, bens etc)[/s]
    [*][s]Regenrate all fine areas in game such as mines etc.... [/s](partially done)
    [*][s]Backup again.[/s]
    [*][s]Test out trim feautre of world border.[/s]
    [*]Take YAMS offline, let the terrain generator program expand all areas to fill the map into a square of 1.73 chunks.
    [*]Upload map, ensure border is set at correct position, fill in remaining 1.7.3 chunks just behind border with the /fill command.
    [*]Backup map.
    [*]Ensure any other areas that need regenrating are done if they were missed.
    [*]Finaly tweaks ready for 1.8
    [*]Bring YAMS back online, wait for Bukkit to update.
    [*]Move over to 1.8, keep border same.
    [*]Download map and use the terrain generator to expand the map outwards evenly, this time with 1.8 terrain.
    [*]Upload map and expand border further back a little.
    [*]Gradually expand futher back as needed letting 1.8 terrain grow over the border over next couple of days and ensure border is increased.
    [*]When 1.9 comes same process as above. Think of it like an onion!!! Layers!!!
