Moderator applications are now open! However, with an experimental twist; normally we only allow Elite and above apply, but this time we are going to allow Trusted and above apply!

If you are interested in applying, please very carefully read this thread. Failure to follow the instructions in the template thread may result in an automatic rejection, because it shows you cannot follow directions accurately. Please be sure to consult the wiki for commands and information about the moderator rank and it's responsibilities.

To the rest of the community: Unlike Builder and MGM Mod applications, Moderator applications are open to the public to allow users to show their support for the applicants. Since this is a very important rank, we'd like to see how the community of Bear Nation supports the applicants. So please feel free to show your support for the applicants by replying to their application! Negative comments are not allowed- if you don't have anything nice to say, dont say anything.


Applications will close on Monday, July 10th, unless otherwise stated.


Good luck to all, and may the odds be ever in your favor :)

Skyblock!

[Owner] Pugabyte posted Jun 20, 17  -  InfoNew

Bear Nation now has its fouth gamemode, Skyblock!

After a lot of beta testing, we are finally ready to release skyblock to you! 

Currently, this gamemode is only available to Member+ players and above. As we iron out the bugs and features of skyblock, this may change (as it did with creative previously). 

For those of you who don't know what skyblock is, it is a version of survival with lot more difficulty. You start off on an island floating in the sky above the endless void with only a small set of materials (and a delicious cow). You have to use Minecraft mechanics and something called "Challenges" to grow your tiny little island into an empire.

Challenges allow you to trade effort, skill, time and items for new items. For example, turning in 64 cobblestone, obtained by using a cobblestone generator for a while, will give you 4 leather (the first time). As you progress through the challenges, they get harder and harder, and the rewards get better, too.

Please make sure to read the Skyblock wiki as it has a *lot* of important information regarding the new gamemode. 

As always, you can access skyblock with the `/warps` menu or with `/skyblock`. Read the holograms or the wiki to help you get started.

Also as always, if you encounter any bugs, have any suggestions or just have a question, please don't hesitate to contact staff. We're here to help.

Enjoy!

Side note: The Skyblock Market and VPS are not yet released, but will be coming in the next few weeks.

Changelog

[Owner] Pugabyte posted May 24, 17  -  ChangelogDevelopmentInfoNew

As you have realized, the frequency of updates on the home page has significantly reduced, since we are now using Discord to announce most changes. Here's a summary of what's happened in the past 2 1/2 months:

Plugins and in-game features:

  • Our chat plugin has been updated, hopefully fixing the /r bug
  • /alerts have been completely re-coded, reducing the amount of bugs/compatibility issues it had with our chat plugin. If you have not used Alerts, check out the wiki - they are pretty neat!
  • Some lesser-known but useful commands, such as /playersearch and /swl, have been added to the auto-announcements
  • Added a /homes limit command to view how many homes you have set and how many homes you can set total. This is also available in the edit menu. Thank you to Pandatai for the suggestion
  • Added /cmodifyall command - use multiple arguments to allow all your friends to all of your LWC protections at once!
  • Added DailyRewards- a custom plugin that gives you rewards for logging in every day. Use /dailyrewards to claim your prizes. As your streak increases, the rewards become more special. Who can get to 30 first!?

Discord:

  • There is now a wiki page for Discord
  • Discord's #muted channel and the ingame channel Discord now bridge together - type /discord muted to view #muted -> in-game messages, and type /ch d to send in-game -> #muted messages
  • You can now link your Discord and Minecraft accounts together to gain access to a cool set of features such as voting reminders and Discord <-> in-game private messaging. Use /discord link or visit the wiki for more information.

Beta site:

  • The beta site has been moved back to it's original domain, https://beta.bear-nation.net, and has had HTTPS re-enabled.
  • Check out some of Bear Nation's amazing builds in our showcase! Huge thanks to Mr_Babyeater for spending multiple hours gathering the pictures featured in the showcase.
  • Have any suggestions for Bear Nation countdowns?
  • Also check out the More nav bar menu for some cool pages.

Events:

  • April Fools - We all had tons of fun being TheEpicScrub for a day, and preparing for our switch to Factions.
  • Easter egg hunt - Lots of people participated in the wonderful easter egg hunt and got some cool prizes. The eggs are still scattered around the warps, but the prizes have been removed. Feel free to continue to hunt for them!
  • As always, our minigame nights are tons of fun. The most recent minigame night, we were joined by VanDerProtofsky and a couple of his friends; shoutout to them for making the night pretty awesome! It was wonderful to meet all of you
  • Happy birthday to Filid, powerade97, Noahkiq and WaffleJr!

Misc:

  • Added an expirimental eu.bear-nation.net address for connecting to the server - if you are in Europe and have a slow connection, try using this address instead of the main address (play.bn-mc.net) and see if your connection improves. Please tell me the results so I can know if it is an effective solution! Huge thanks to VanDerProtofsky for providing the french server for this feature.
  • 1.12 is on the way- we expect to update pretty quickly after it's release.
  • What's this spooky "Coming soon" item in the warps menu? hmm...

For more up-to-date information and immediate support, please join our Discord! (voice not required!) 

Adventure maps??

[Owner] Pugabyte posted May 2, 17  -  InfoNew

Oh, hi there! I have a nice surprise for you!
Bear Nation now has adventure maps! As of today, we are officially releasing the first map - named "Stranded"

What?!
You read me.

No, really. What are adventure maps?
Adventure maps are amazing, fun worlds that have a storyline and challenges to them. They are an adventure that you can take solo or in a group and face off against puzzles, riddles, and mobs as you uncover the storyline!

Oh, that's really neat!
I know, right? It's really just somewhere to go and something to do when you don't want to do survival. For "Stranded" in particular, the world has keepinventory on so that if you die, you don't lose anything. But you can't bring your own gear into it! It's a completely separate inventory.

Who can play?
Any member or above. This map was designed for solo play or small groups- We found that 1-4 players at once works best- but there’s no limit to how many can join.

But what happens if someone else completes it?
No worries! The world resets every 6 hours so that everyone can have a fair chance at getting the stuff inside and completing the story. It won't reset your inventory, just put puzzles and treasures back for the next person. Staff can also trigger more frequent resets by request if the situation warrants it

How do we get there?
Just use /stranded to get started on your adventure.

I left the world (or it reset, or I died), how do I get back to where I was?
Well, if you were smart, you used /sethome to add a home to where you were in Stranded before you left.

But I don't have any more homes!
Well, you could buy a few more from our donation store...... OR there are beds all over this adventure map. Since the time is always night, just sleep in any bed to create a save point. The next time you want to return, use /stranded again, and then simply use /suicide to return to the last bed you slept in on this map. Since KeepInventory is turned on you won't lose anything, just be moved to the last bed you slept in. Don't forget to sleep in beds or update your home location as you move around the world to avoid having to retrace your steps.
