Good day!

Just checking in with a small but incredibly useful update. Recently I just finished developing a new plugin called HCChat which is some extended chat features specific to Hybrid Cannon.

Today's new feature is /global.

This command will mute your global chat allowing you to do away with all the clutter from chat. Server messages along with faction/ally chat will continue to show regardless.

I hope this new feature will reduce some of your chat related stress and make your in-game experience more tolerable during times of bad trolling and terrible shit talking.

Hello friends,

I wanted let everyone know that we've rolled out a couple awesome new features today. The best way to explain it is to probably show it.

First I want to introduce my favorite new feature, which is highly experimental and might disappear depending on how it performs.

If you can't figure out what that scoreboard represents, it's the number of remaining CombatTag seconds of you and anyone near you in a 10 block radius.

Now, you will be able to know exactly how much time you have remaining without having to stop and type /ct which could be extremely detrimental in a PVP situation.

For anyone unaware, CombatTag is a third-party plugin we use to prevent players from PVP logging. If you log off while combat tagged, your body remains in-game until you log back in (allowing players to kill you).

The next awesome new feature I want to introduce are the new kill messages:...

As promised, here's a more formal announcement of our Helper selection.

RagingDouche and I have carefully gone through all the applications and have selected a few awesome candidates to become Helpers.

Garbageman
A relatively new player to the server but has already contributed much and continues to do so. His in-depth knowledge of the game mechanics and general friendliness makes him a well suited candidate.

ItsTibberz
Although young, Tibbers is more mature than most adults I know. She has a good sense of ethics, is probably too friendly and has been with us from the very establishment of the server. Her willingness to help and outgoing attitude will be a great asset.

Jennasaur
Almost always the first one to welcome a new player, Jenna is probably one of the most friendly people on the server. She has pretty much been a voluntary Helper since the moment she joined. As nice and helpful as...

Hey all, we'll be closing Helper applications on Friday, March 7 (this week!) to start our review process. So far there's been a handful of great applications and we look forward to at least a few more ;)

RagingDouche and I are eager to review every application in detail. We'll be announcing our new Helpers on the same day in the evening some time most likely.

We've opened Helper applications for people interested in becoming a part of the staff. We recognize that owners and admins are not always available and so we're seeking a couple people to help moderate chat.

If this is something that interests you, go check out the Staff Applications thread.
