Hello people,

The reason I don't say penguins is because this is a serious thread, I need your guys' opinion on switching to premium.

I'll obviously be stating why this change should happen and maybe why it shouldn't, just a side-note I'll be 100% honest in this thread.

So after talking to an server-adviser, one of the topics that came the our attention was being cracked. And that if we'd really want to move forward with cold, maybe for the long-term road it's better to switch to premium.

So why would we go premium?
  • Less cheaters and overall rule-breakers
  • More expand-ability options
  • More profit-per-player, which will leave us to get more youtubers (read next item)
  • Actually get taken seriously by youtubers, and their viewers. I'm right now too scared to donate youtubers, because most players of youtubers don't take cracked servers as serious.
  • If we do this, as we have to reset all servers. We'll do this in a big way, fully rethemed, better systems and updates on all servers
So why wouldn't we go premium?
  • We'll have to do resets for the servers, because playerdata could get lost
  • We'll transfer donator ranks to people that bought it on a cracked account
  • We'll probably have an estimated player-drop of 30-50% in the beginning, but we'll make this up with you guys
Hello Penguins,

Nick and I are trying our best to find improvements for HCF.

Here is what we decided:

  • Speed HCF
  • Builder GKit at SOTW
  • treecapper
  • Auto-smelt ores
  • Mining sand automatically gives glass (sand will be given in the builder kit)
  • /gkit brewing (Gives all necessary items to build autobrewer and some items of each potion material) (for everyone)
  • GKits can be renewed every 24 hours (SPEED HCF EXCLUSIVE)
  • Border Size 1500x1500
  • Warzone size 750
  • /reclaim key amount increased
  • 15 Minute Death-Ban
  • Conquest every weekend
  • 5-Man Factions (No Allies)
New Commands:
  • /meltsand (Enabled by default, Toggles if sand automatically transforms to glass when mined)
  • /choptree (Enabled by default, Toggles if whole tree falls down when one log is chopped)

If any of you have anymore suggestions regarding speed hcf please comment on this thread and It will be discussed.

SOTW will be Saturday 18th May 4pm CEST

Yours,

Nick and the HCF-Managers.

Dear ColdNetwork,

We've made some changes and we want to announce some upcoming things.

XXX Tags:
As @Pengurino and me are both (yes still) big fans of xxxtentacion. We decided to make some tags for the other fans out there. https://coldnetwork.net/account/upgrades

HCFactions:
Again, there were some issues on sotw, and therefor we couldn't do a really good release. But even after issues were fixed we still had 10 players on 2 days after. I'm really not sure what to do with HCFactions but please leave your opinions below after you're done reading this thread.

KitPvP:
KitPvP, we kinda did for fun. We just wanted to see the bugs in the kits plugin and overal the attention for it. I think it was kind of a success because with almost no-features besides kits, it had 20 players daily. I think if we work on this well, make a good economy and cool add-ons we could boost the players to 40.

Donations:
We want to bring back the rewards for donators, so we'll be doing Top Monthly donators, and Top Yearly donators rewards. You can find them on http://store.coldnetwork.net

Theme:
In the past half year, we kinda switched themes on which part of the year we were living in. But if someone gamemodes don't get updated for a bit, this means they'll just fall behind. That's why we decided to stick to our original theme, which is blue'ish. Besides forums.

Lobby:
We've revamped the lobby a bit (Build thanks to @CaptainMeoow ), we made it in a minimalist way, which means we just added some required things so players just go directly to the GameModes.

Network:
For the network, we added a global helpop and friends system. (Friends system is still in progress, almost done).

Practice:
We'll be revamping Practice really soon, with a new lobby, new spawn, new arenas and new events.

This was it for now, thanks for reading.

Yours,

Nick
