Hey!

Checking in with some awesome news. Some of you may or may not know, through the Essentials plugin it has always been possible to perform teleport glitches if you were saavy enough to understand how it worked, however that day has come to an end.

I am happy to say that teleport glitching has been completely eliminated. As a side effect, Essentials teleports will now take you directly to where you asked to go, without messing with your destination coordinates at all. This means if a teleport destination is in mid air and above lava, you will probably fall and burn. ;)

With an increasing number of Minecraft accounts being hacked into each day, it's important that you take extra precaution to keep your account safe. To help you do this, we have added an optional two-factor authentication mechanism for adding an extra layer of security to your account.

For you to be able to use two-factor authentication, you must have a device such as a smartphone that will allow you to install an authenticator app. I recommend installing Google Authenticator, which is freely available for both iOS and Android platforms.

Once you've installed the app, go ahead and connect to Hybrid Cannon and type /2fa. This will spawn a map in your inventory with a barcode that looks something like this:

If you are using Google Authenticator, you can scan this code directly using the "Scan Barcode" feature. If your authenticator app does not support barcode scanning, you will have to manually enter...

Hey all!

Just checking in with some information regarding the reset, nothing important at this point but I wanted to follow up now that it's been a couple days and people have had a chance to let the new stuff sink in over the weekend.

The technical launch behind the reset was painless and we couldn't have hoped for better. The server had gone down for about half an hour to an hour and was back up with all the cool new stuff that you see now.

Sadly, post-launch we encountered many issues that had been exploited by players, such as a glitch in Diamond/Gold ore generation in some of the biomes among other things. We've since corrected all these issues and most of the damage control has been done.

RagingDouche and I are amazed at how positive the feedback was for the reset and how it continues to be positively accepted by most players. We're very happy with the reset and even more happy that you guys are enjoying yourselves. It's an awesome feeling to create something and have...
