Server Update, VIP, & Weekly Challenges!

Surprise Mid-week Update!
---------------------------------------------------

We’ve got a couple of things going on that we wanted to cover, and we couldn’t wait until Friday! So let’s cover a few quick things before we get to the big one!

Server Update
------------------------------


The server has been updated to 1.9.4 and will accept both 1.8 and 1.9 clients still.

New VIP
-----------------------


Welcome aboard to our newest VIP   JollyOldCinema
we’ve revised our VIP requirements, so take a look over here and see if you qualify for a VIP position as well if you’re a youtuber or streamer.

And finally something a little different……….

The Nexus Weekly Challenge
----------------------------------------------------

What is it: A challenge event that rotates out various challenges each week
Who is it open to: *ALL* Nexus players, (free/premium/mods/admins/etc)

Each week we will be deciding a new challenge that we come up with, or ask the community for. All you need to do to enter, is to make a video of yourself actually completing said challenge. We only need a short submission (try to limit it to under 5 minutes) - as it just needs to be a highlight of the events. We are accepting the first 50 submissions every week, and will judge the highest quality submission based on overall video production and player skill.
(Screenshots/Phone filming computer screens/other low quality means of filming, will not be accepted)

This Week’s Challenge:
SG KILLSTREAK +3 film yourself getting at least 3 kills in a row on any of our SG maps.
This video must be recorded/uploaded and public anytime between today and before the deadline.

Submissions must be in by Tuesday May 24th at 12:00am EST.
As stated above we are only accepting the first 50 submissions. One winner will be chosen for this event.
(In the future we might have multiple winners/top 5/etc, we are just testing this idea out as of now.)

Submit your video here

Our winner for this event this week will receive the following: 100 nexites, and we will tweet your video out from the Nexus twitter.
Goodluck to everyone participating and may the odds be ever in your favor ;]

5/13/16 Weekly Development Update

  Kupo ·   34 comments · View on Forum
Hi guys! Lots of stuff went down in the past week so I'm going to do more of a wrapup on what happened if you haven't been keeping up with all the news posts that've been happening recently.


VIP Rank
We've lowered our requirements for all various applications of the VIP rank! If you qualify for a VIP position send us a message over at admin@thenexusmc.com
Option 1: Have at least 10,000 YouTube subscribers
Option 2: Get at least 2,000 views per YouTube video and record on The Nexus at
least 3 times a week (this option has no subscriber requirement)
Option 3: Stream The Nexus content weekly and maintain an average of 80 concurrent viewers
Option 4: Friends with someone on The Nexus staff team.


Introducing New Ranks!
We have 3 new ranks active on the server, Coal, Lapis, and Emerald! Besides this new rank system, we have also revised our Iron, Gold, and Diamond ranks. All of the ranks include a brand new set of benefits as well - with new lower pricing models, so if you're looking for a way to help support development of the server now's the time to give us a hand!

Community Management
Congrats to   AshPurdyy - due to her involvement and dedication to working with the staff on The Nexus, she will be joining me in the Co-CM position for the server and helping out with general staff management and events.

New Game Development
With the addition of   Favorlock to the team, we've started work again on new game development! *Finally* being able to focus on the things we've been wanting to do is awesome feeling.

Anti-Cheat Update!
Again with the addition of   Favorlock during this next week we will be playing with our anti-cheat, this is something we had to wait for a developer to really mess with, so - expect a few hiccups during the week until we can find a good adjustment to where both our staff and players are comfortable. With anticheats - it certainly is possible to make them extremely strict, but the higher the settings - the more things need to be checked which causes massive lag issues for a majority of the players. This is why finding a balance between personal moderation from staff and automatic moderation from the system is extremely important.


As of now - we're going to leave updates here this week. There are a lot of things that have been played around with in the background of the site in regards to making things work better. Our main focus throughout the rest of the month though will be getting our new game out, as we'd like to start featuring it as soon as possible, so before I let this go on too long - I'm off to answer a big pile of support tickets!

Let's Talk About VIP's

  Kupo ·   46 comments · View on Forum
Hey everyone! So the past week we implemented three new ranks for the server - and then reviewed the Architect rank. Now it’s time to talk about VIP requirements! VIP’s are a great way to bring in traffic to the server, but the current requirements of VIP don’t really work as well for the current size of The Nexus. To help adjust and to bring in more people to actively record and stream on the server - we will be revising the requirements of what’s needed to apply for our VIP rank.

Previously our VIP requirements were as follows:
Option 1: Have at least 25,000 YouTube subscribers
Option 2: Get at least 5,000 views per YouTube video and record on The Nexus at least 3 times a week (this option has no subscriber requirement)
Option 3: Stream The Nexus content semi-regularly, and maintain an average of 300 concurrent viewers.
Option 4: Friends with someone on The Nexus team.


To help expand and promote newer channels (both YouTube and with streaming) we will be modifying the VIP rank as follows:

Option 1: Have at least 10,000 YouTube subscribers
Option 2: Get at least 2,000 views per YouTube video and record on The Nexus at least 3 times a week (this option has no subscriber requirement)
Option 3: Stream The Nexus content weekly and maintain an average of 80 concurrent viewers
Option 4: Friends with someone on The Nexus staff team.

Along with the VIP title in game, VIP’s will also receive Diamond rank benefits (which can be viewed on our shop).

If you or someone you know fits into these new requirements, send us an e-mail to admin@thenexusmc.com and we will be in contact with you. Please make sure to include all relevant information with your channel/Minecraft name so that we can check things out for ourselves.

*EDITED*
VIP gives you Diamond rank benefits, my bad :P I thought we were going with Lapis, but apparently it was decided that we're doing Diamond.

New Ranks are Live!

  Kupo ·   17 comments · View on Forum
Hey guys - this is just a little update but all the new ranks that we spoke about last week are now live and purchasable on the shop! We also received word today from Mojang giving us the greenlight on all the changes we made to the server so there should not be anymore major changes in regards to things with our rank system. Thanks for sticking around through all of the EULA fun times, but we should now start going back to some form of stability.
