1.3 Update Coming Soon -  Important Please Read!!!

If you update your client prematurely, you will not be able to log on again until either after we deploy it or if you follow downgrade instructions.

This update (and ALL other time-sensitive news) will be posted to my Twitter Feed.  This feed is also available on the home page of this website.  For best results, follow me on Twitter.  

There are rumors that it will release around August 1st.  We will likely not update on the same day unless all our core, essential plugins are also updating.  For those who are wondering, these are HawkEye (action logging), Factions (protection) and Bartersigns (economy).  If Bartersigns takes too long to update, we will likely disable it in favor of 1.3 features.  Mojang has been releasing with Bukkit included so it should come quickly but only time will tell for sure.  Factions and Hawkeye are big and so i expect them to update quickly.

Faction Plots in RVN

Ravenport City rules state that plots should not overlap other plots and are limited to the gravel marker provided when the plot is sold.  Please respect over's property.  On a similar, related note, buildings ringed with fire could prove dangerous.  Please talk to the owner of another plot before making such modification.  Communication an respect for others property will ease such situations.

From Ravenport City Rules:
  • Buildings should be limited to the plot marker, marked with gravel or wood (This boundary includes the marker itself).  These materials are a gift to the new resident and can be harvested and taken.
  • Please do not build under or over other's plots or public land.  This includes roads, walls, and parks.  Ownership of each plot goes to the bottom of the map.  Use all of it if you wish.
