Please test the new Settler-Test!

I have now finished the new Settler test (except for some formatting to make it look nicer).

Please be aware that the whole thing has moved from an actual Settler-Test to a “Guide to get a lot”-style of thing.

It does not do anything yet (it does not reserve a lot or promote you to settler), since I want to make sure that it works 100% before we replace the old one. So I would like to ask all of you to try it out. Please check for the following:

  • If you do all correct, does it work as expected?
  • If you do something different than the instruction, does to re-direct you properly (including not making any selections etc)?
  • Are there any rule or other questions in additions that should be asked?
  • Is it clear and possibly fool-proof?
  • Could the description be shorter (people don’t read the text anyhow)?
  • Any other improvements?
  • Do you like it?
  • Are there any typical questions new users ask that should be addressed in this?

Please comment here for anything!



New Personal Shop& Deposit page online!

To be found newly under the “Your Stuff” section on the website, you can now access information about your personal Deposit, Requests and offers in the shop as well as recent transactions done involving your account.

I am hoping to add additional / better functions here to allow you to do better business on Uncovery and to increase the competition. If there is any specific information you would like to to see regarding your personal shop/deposit items, please tell me and I will consider including it on the page.


Full item database finished

I have now finished a full item database with icons for every single block and item so that we have a full inventory for the shop pages on the website.
Next one up is a re-vamp of the data tables on the website. As you might have noticed, the website shopdata is currently broken, I need to fix those.


Data input help request (now editable)

I would like to ask the Uncovery community (again) for some help getting some data together. In order to display all the blocks and items on the website correctly, I have so far used an image provided by the minecraft wiki. The issue is that this image is not up to date. So I would like to get all the images that are already in the wiki available. For this however, I need the URLs of the individual block graphics that are available on the wiki.

For this, I have created a spreadsheet.

How to enter data:

  1. Open the spreadsheet and pick a line, let’s say line 233:
    The first field is the ID, the second the “Damage Value” and the last one the name & link of the item. Click on the link. A box will pop up that let’s you go to the respective wiki page. The links are guessed do not all work. Just as in this case for example, so please search for redstone lamp in the wiki search field instead. This will bring you to this page.
  2. If the Damage Value is 0, just take the appropriate image on the top right of the page (in this case the lit redstone lamp). If the Damage value in the table above is NOT 0, there is most likely a rotating image on the top right that will sooner or later display the block that you want to have. See for example slabs. To make sure you have the right item, please check in the sidebox on the right the entry “Data Value” to be the same as the first column.
  3. Once you click on the right image, you will come to a page like this here. There is the same image on the top right, click on it again to get to a page where you see only the image, like this here. Now look at the URL of the image, it looks like this:


  4. I am interested only in the part after “gamepedia.com”. So copy and paste that part into the spreadsheet: /a/a8/Redstone_Lamp_%28Active%29.png
    Make sure it has the / in the beginning and ends with .png. If there is anything like ?version=…. behind it, please remove that.
  5. Rinse and repeat :)

Thanks for the help! If there are unclear items, please skip them and put a ? in the field instead of the URL.

Support ticket issue resolved – check your open tickets please!

I have found and fixed an issue with the support tickets.
Please note that this only affected in-game created tickets. All others are fine.

The issue was that in-game created tickets sent an email to me, but did not register themselves into the database. If you created a ticket recently online, please check if

  • the issue has been resolved, if not
  • if the ticket is in your list of tickets (do /ticket list), if not
  • re-create the ticket please! Thanks and sorry about this!



Unified, constant item names

I have now created a table of blocks & items that takes the names for these from the official names that are given in minecraft. So far, the system has taken whatever was stored in a dictionary file that was created by another plugin. The advantage is that we can now have a clear indication for what a block is named, it won’t change and is the same everywhere across the game.

People can still lookup items in the shop with randon names (dsword, diamondsword etc) (using the /search command) which is researched in the above mentioned dictionary, but when it comes to what the system displays, we have a concrete name now.

Minecart signs

Since I now was able to re-enable minecarts I went through the outstanding tickets that concerned the signs. There was one open since March, where a user notified me that there is a feature called “eject at” that allowed users to teleport them to any coordinate on the map. Of course this is not in the spirit of the server.

Because the permission system for the minecart signs is not really convenient to manage, I had trouble disabling those earlier. I found out now how this works, but this disabled the creation of ALL signs. There does not seem to be a permission that disables the usage of existing signs. I have to figure out a nice way how to manage the plugins permissions.

I know several people have abused this feature in the past. The issue is that I cannot disable already existing signs. If you have any of them, please take them down. So please be aware that if I catch anyone with those signs, it’s a ban.
