First Library!

Congratulations to dave_x and his friends at Aboria who became the first town to build the Library improvement.

The Library improvement allows you to purchase enchantments on items with coins. The enchantment you can purchase depends on the upgrades that are purchased for the library. Currently there can only be one enchantment per library so head on over to Aboria and see what they’ve selected!

CivTowny Update 9

changelog:

* Migrated Towny from flatfile to SQL server. (yeah about time =P)
* MASSIVE update to how structures are handled internally, making them easier to create.
* Structures are now defined in a yml configuration file.
* Structures can now execute code at specified intervals
* The blocks that make structures are now defined by a template which can be exported with WorldEdit.
* Updated structure templates for bank, store, library and grocer.
* Structures now build so that the entrance to the structure faces the player who built it.
* You can now undo the placement of a structure using "/town build undo". The undo level only sticks around for a little while and should only be used to help fine tune placement of structures. For anti-duplication reasons, there is only 1 undo level that gets cleared each time you use it.
* Structures are now placed in front of the player instead of on top of the player.
* Towns can now support multiple structures of the same type.(Note: none of the current structures are allowed to have duplicates)
* Added Library
* Town structures now make a global announcement when their fee rate changes.
* Town structures can no longer be built outside of town.
* Dynmap now shows all structures owned by a town instead of just banks and stores.
* Dynmap now displays town level.
* Dynmap now shows towns that are in debt, how much they are in debt, and how many days they have left until they go up for sale/deleted.
* Decreased the growth rate on everything. =P

Downtime Tonight

There will be a 30min of scheduled downtime on Thursday June 28th 2012, at 10:00pm PST. I will be performing a major software update that will require a fair bit of testing and I want to make sure everything is green before letting people on.

Thanks for your patience.

First Bank!

Congratulations to Krazyarab of Stonefort who managed to be the first town to build the town bank improvement.

You can now see which towns have banks and stores by clicking on their name’s in the dynamic map. The map will show you the bank’s exchange rate and its non-member fee so you can determine if the hike is worth it to exchange things. You can use it to gauge which town you wish to join since joining a town with a higher level bank is desirable :)

Happy mining!

CivTowny Update 4

Server upgrade completed :)

Also an update to CivTowny.

Changelist:

* stores now give the proper amount of items
* store signs now display the non resident fees on them
* Towns that have not payed their debt after 5 days will now go on sale for their value + debt instead of just the debt. The "value" of a town is equal to the cost of all the upgrades plus its founding cost at a 50% discount
* Added Banks and Stores to the dynmap map. Click on a town and it will show you the level and tax rate of that bank
* A global message is now sent when a town expands its borders.

Other Plugin updates:

* added logblock and anti-xray plugins
