Hello Everyone,

I'm a tad late on posting this, but this is going to be a very, very comprehensive thread on what will and will not happen on ECC's Skyblock.

First, let's address the elephant in the room. AEM.

AEM is the server we acquired last year, with the intent of making sure their community stays alive. Our second goal was to include their servers in our network. Hopefully by hosting the AEM forums on our servers and welcoming many of their players into our server has done that first part.
The second, is what Skyblock aims to do.


We're adding a near duplicate of the AEM configurations and ranks to ECC's Skyblock, with a few modifications to ensure longevity (stability is critical for ECC in general).

Here's a list of things that have been copied over from AEM (non-exhaustive)
  • Skyblock Donor Ranks
  • Skyblock Challenges
  • Skyblock Kits
  • Past donations (Skyblock ranks)
Here's a list of things that cannot be copied over from AEM (non-exhaustive)
  • Player data (saves, inventories, etc)
  • Skyblock Islands
  • Majority of the plugins
  • Custom data/systems AEM developed (though, rest assured we have them saved)
The reason we could not copy any of the above, or other things you may find missing, is that it met one or more of the following criteria:
  • Plugin was out of date/required more work than needed to update
  • Plugin had issues with the setup/system that required AEM's specific environment
  • Would have given AEM players an unfair advantage over ECC players
  • Caused incompatibilities/conflicts with our infrastructure
  • Security/Exploits caused by it
  • Does not fit the ECC standards
I hope that the AEM players can understand that we did our best to include the most important parts for them.


Progress can be tracked via our Jira issue tracker,...

We thought we should make a sale list for players who are planning to support ECC, yet don't want to spend it prior to a sale that is just around a corner :)

Our future sale list looks as such:

PS: We are doing a huge blowout on the main server as @JamieSinn is about release tons of new servers and game modes on ECC and we figure it's a great time to let our old players get all the features they are missing for a nice cheap price.

Please note, ranks will be delivered during the first week of April upon the release of the server.



Hopefully we are able to get it out in March, which would be even more epic.
But for the sake of the financial promise we are making, we have made the date first week of April just to give @JamieSinn time to perfect the project.
I'm going to make this news post as TL;DR as possible and straight to the point.

The biggest problem on ECC (that hasn't necessarily been discussed much before now) was that after 7 years of doing things "my way" I have been unable to let someone else fully step in, change things out, release things faster & more efficiently.

With all the work that goes on to keep ECC running (and believe me, it's a lot), I have simply been unable to find time to fit in new projects. It has become absolutely impossible for me to do this solo without giving the work off to someone else and it's time I face reality, I must give full control of my project of 7 years to another.

Meanwhile @JamieSinn has continuously asked me to release servers, even gone as far as preparing them and having them sit around waiting on me, ultimately not getting them out due to myself being so incredibly used to my certain internal setup and being unwilling to let someone step in to change how things are done (from small things such as the OS to major things such as in depth permissions/cross server management and configuration setups).

We have basically continued to delay stuff due to my personal life taking up so much of my time, and ECC maintenance taking up all my free ECC time.

With all that said, I am officially stepping down from all internal work on ECC, including all future additions, and giving Jamie and his team the full green light and all access. Jamie and I have had a long discussion on how work will be split, and from this point on it will look something along these lines:


With the above structure, I will literally be able to give my full focus on my own areas of ECC while Jamie will...
